Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Heartland’s Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 254 of the In The Tank Podcast. It appears as though Joe Biden picked his VP and it is Kamala Harris. The ITT crew dissects the pick and ponders the question: “why Kamala?” Later, they talk about the Teachers Unions’ threat of “safety strikes.” Should conservatives be pushing for kids to go back to school? Or should we use this as an opportunity to push for School Choice options? And last, the ITT crew discusses a policy proposal that is getting more attention – the federal jobs guarantee.
