Prager H3: Another Taliban Figure Nabbed

Prager H3: Another major Taliban leader was captured over the weekend in Pakistan. The last major Taliban figure we nabbed pointed the way. Doubtful that he was read his Miranda rights… New Global Warming Alert (or non-alert in this case): turns out that panic about rising sea levels was based on false data. Dennis continues on an issue raised last hour: the Catholic Church will no longer provide foster care in Washington, DC. Bill Bennett points out that there are clear differences between Republicans and Democrats. To say otherwise is inaccurate and counter-productive.

Prager H2: The Sham of Bi-Partisanship

Prager H2: The government is broken? All that means, George Will points out, is that the left isn’t getting what it wants. Dennis talks to David Dreier, Congressman for the 26th District of California about the new ObamaCare plan and the possibility of the Democrats using “reconciliation’ to get it passed. Washington DC has passed a law permitting gay couples to provide foster care. The Catholic Church which has been involved in foster care for 80 years is getting out of the business. They won’t be told that same sex couples are to be given the exact same consideration as traditional couples.

Prager H1: New ObamaCare Same as Old ObamaCare

Prager H1: The White House reveals its new “compromise” Health Care Bill. It’s pretty much the Senate version of ObamaCare, except worse. This version gives the Federal government control over insurance rates. Dennis talks to Arthur Laffer, famed economist and founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an economic research and consulting firm. His new book is The Return to Prosperity.

Prager H3: Open Lines

Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda. Issues include: Will Tiger Woods confession convince the public that he has repented; what is Dennis’s favorite potato chip; what are Dennis’s thoughts about prison reform; what should one do when one sees children of close friends misbehaving.

Prager H2: Happiness Hour: The Spiral Staircase

Prager H2: Dennis talks to Dr. Stephen Marmer, member of the clinical faculty of the UCLA School of Medicine and psychiatrist in private practice in Brentwood, CA, about personal growth issues that recur in our lives. Each time we confront these issues, we do so from a different perspective.

Prager H1: Out of the Rough

Prager H1: Tiger Woods makes his obligatory public confession. Dennis finds it sincere and finds media voyeurism a sad commentary on our times. Is the country ungovernable? That’s the Left’s latest complaint. An angry lunatic flies his plane into an IRS office in Texas. There are no lessons to be drawn from his incoherent manifesto.

Prager H3: Heart Health

Prager H3: Dennis talks to Dr. Michael Richman, thoracic surgeon, and frequent Prager Show guest, about heart disease and specifically what we can learn from former President Clinton’s recent scare.

Prager H2: Biden and Ash Wednesday

Prager H2: Two British TV reporters can’t figure out what was on Vice President Joe Biden’s forehead during a press event with President Obama yesterday. Have Americans finally begun to realize that we can’t keep spending at Obama levels?.. Has the Stimulus Bill really saved 2 million jobs? How do we know?

Prager H1: The Well-Behaved Child

Prager H1: What is the secret? Dennis talks to John Rosemond. The child psychologist writes a nationally syndicated column on parenting and has authored 14 books. His newest book is The Well-Behaved Child: Discipline that Really Works.

Prager H3: Angrier at Relatives: Liberals or Conservatives?

Prager H3: At family get-togethers, who gets angrier – liberal relatives at conservative ones or conservative relatives at liberal ones? All callers said it was their liberal relatives who more likely to express anger. Dennis acknowledged that since most of his audience leans conservative, this was not a scientific poll. Nevertheless, it is his opinion that the liberal relative is more likely to express anger at the conservative relative rather than vice versa.

Prager H2: Male/Female Hour: Who Deals with Getting Older Better?

Prager H2: The instant reaction is that growing older is harder for women, but upon further examination, nearly all callers, women and men alike, believed that in general it is harder for men. Dennis opened up the hour contending that it was equally hard for both sexes, but by the end, agreed with his callers.

Prager H1: The Thrill is Gone?!

Prager H1: With the ever increasing risks in Olympic sports – as, for example, the increased speed of the luge course at the Vancouver Winter Olympics – is the joy of watching Olympics events shifting from watching athleticism to watching danger? And if so, is this troubling: Shouldn’t the thrill in sports be competition rather than what it seems to have become.flirtation with ones mortality. Callers weigh in.
