Prager H3: Heaven and Earth, Part 2

Prager H3: Dennis has a second conversation with Ian Plimer, Professor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Adelaide, Australia. His new book is Heaven and Earth. A Best of Prager Hour. Originally broadcast on August 25, 2009.

Prager H1: Should We Pay Kids for Grades?

Prager H1: A professor at Harvard demonstrates that kids do better when they are “bribed” to stay in school. Utopians strongly disagree: children should learn for the love of learning. Dennis talks to Wesley Smith, Senior Fellow in Human Rights and Bioethics at the Discovery Institute. His new book is A Rat Is a Pig Is Dog Is a Boy. His theme is the moral vacuum surrounding the animal rights movement.

Prager H2: Saudi Women, Catholic Women

Prager H2: New York Times Columnist and Maureen Dowd sits down with oppressed Saudi women. Then, it dawns on her that she’s oppressed, too. She’s a Catholic… Dennis talks to James Mahaffey, a senior research scientist at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. His new book is Atomic Awakening. It’s a look at the past and future of nuclear power… Democrats keep endlessly extending unemployment benefits. Naturally, this sounds compassionate, but is it really? And what impact does it have on the larger society?

Prager H1: Essential Parenting

Prager H1: If you have grown children, what one piece of advice would you give to young parents? Dennis offers his nomination and callers submit theirs.

Prager H3: Who Got Us Out of the Depression?

Prager H3: Did Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal policies get us out of the Depression? It’s becoming clear that the answer is just the opposite. Ironically, the prosperity that came to the country after the war was driven by tax cuts and, here’s the topper, the Democrats pushed for them. Dennis returns to the issue of the Burger King ad and the absurd reaction by the mental health community. Dennis talks to Dr. David Dosa, assistant professor of medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. His fascinating new book is Making Rounds with Oscar.

Prager H2: Death to the Governor

Prager H2: The new NJ governor wants to makes cuts in the bloated educational bureaucracy of his state. For his sins, he receives a veiled death threat from a leader of the teachers union. What if the governor had been a liberal Democrat and the letter sender a Tea Party member? Do you think the media would have made more of this story?.. Dennis talks to one of his favorite thinkers, Theodore Dalrymple, best selling author and contributing editor to City Journal. His new book is The New Vichy Syndrome.

Prager H1: Tragedy for Poland

Prager H1: A good part of the senior leadership of Poland was killed in a plane crash in Russia. Ironically, the Poles were there to commemorate the slaughter of 22,000 Polish officers by the Soviets in 1940. A transgendered kid in Maine doesn’t know which bathroom to go to and the Maine Civil Rights Commissions answers by trying to ban all gender distinctions everywhere in the state. Last week it was Iowa. This week it’s Maine. These commissions need to be folded.

Prager H3: Open Lines

Prager H3: Per usual, listeners set the agenda. Issues raised include: Are you upset by the over use of the word “literally”; How do I start writing my book; my family are all Obama supporters, how am I supposed to get along with them; and how do you stay fit being on the road so often.

Prager H2: Happiness Hour: The Little Things, Part 3

Prager H2: Dennis has been very focused on this happiness concept — the little things in life are much more likely to bring you happiness than the “big” events. He furthers his theory. Callers weigh in.

Prager H1: Benedict Arnold to Retire

Prager H1: Bart Stupak, Democratic congressman from Michigan who was so crucial to passing ObamaCare, has decided to retire. He says he’s been thinking about it for years. Sure, he has. Congressmen are known for retiring in their 50’s. No, he knew he couldn’t be re-elected… Supreme Court Judge and steadfast liberal jurist, John Paul Stevens, has also announced his retirement. President Obama gets to pick a new, younger liberal. The only question is, how Left will he go?… Los Angeles is facing insolvency. Wind and solar energy mandates are a big part of the reason.
