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.
On this week’s ’cast, Mona and Jay talk about Obama as foreign-policy disaster. There is some talk about domestic-policy disasters, too. And will Hillary Clinton, if president, be another master of disaster? Mistress of disaster? Is there any difference at all between BHO and HRC? The latter thinks that the “reset” with Russia has been a crashing success. “Crashing” is the word.
Mona and Jay also talk about the Koch brothers, and the gross, indeed frightening, demonization of them. Furthermore, they weigh in on Cleveland—not as the city that LeBron James will call home once more, but as the site of the 2016 GOP convention.
Should representatives of regimes such as Iran be invited to appear on such programs as Meet the Press? It is an interesting question. Should the taxpayer have to fund Bradley Manning’s sex-change operation, or whatever he’s doing? (He is apparently known as Chelsea now.) Mona says no, emphatically—fumingly. Jay, of course, agrees.
In linguistic news, Mona proves her right-wing bona fides by using “Democrat” as an adjective. “Democrat policies,” she says—just as Bob Dole inveighed against “Democrat wars” during the 1976 vice-presidential debate. Jay marvels, and admires.
The podcast goes out with an excerpt from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Dukas, for reasons you will discover.
