Join Jim and Greg as they welcome new polls showing New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan deadlocked with her possible GOP rivals after her sudden interest in border security faces a major backlash. They also shudder at a Pentagon report showing the U.S. military is dangerously dependent upon China for critical components needed to fight effectively. And they shake their heads as Sen. Elizabeth Warren tries to argue that “forgiving” student loan debt by forcing taxpayers to foot the bill will not add to inflation.

    Ball bearings were a controversial big deal during World War II.

    Ball Bearing factories were mentioned pretty regularly on Hogan’s Heroes.

    Hogan’s Heros is where I first learned of the strategic importance of ball bearings.  This led me to look up more mainstream sources.

    DOD finally noticed something that I’ve been talking about for at least 30 years?

    One question I would like someone in the media ask Liz Warren is why higher education cost does so much to begin with.

    She never stops complaining about price gouging. Her profession (higher education) has had its prices exceed the rate of inflation for decades

    When does she drag college/university presidents to congress and berate them for these high prices?

    Probably not until after she finally decides not to take a job as a college president herself, if even then.
