Prager H3: Open Lines

Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda. Issues raised include: is it okay to change your order in a restaurant; why do so many Jews seem to get married in country clubs; should one continue to support a liberal organization if one has become conservative; was Christianity forced on blacks; can America recapture its values or have we drifted too far from them; why is clarity so important; do Republicans have a utopian vision of America.

Prager H1: Big Government

Prager H1: The myth that Big Business controls Big Government has been shattered by the BP Oil Spill crisis. BP puts $20B in the collection plate and begs Big Government for forgiveness. So, who has the real power?… In NY a judge gives voters six votes to redress “racial imbalance” of local city council. The Obama Administration has managed to alienate two of our closest allies – the UK and Israel.

Prager H2: Closing of the Muslim Mind

Prager H2: Dennis talks to Robert Reilly, senior fellow at the American Foreign Policy Council and a member of the board of the Middle East Media Research Institute. His new book is The Closing of the Muslim Mind: How Intellectual Suicide Created the Modern Islamist. In Denmark if you publicly criticize Islam you’ve committed a hate crime and will be prosecuted. Why is the Left more angry at the CEO of BP than the thugs who head Iran and Venezuela?

Prager H3: The Selling of the American Wedding

Prager H3: Dennis talks to Rebecca Mead, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of One Perfect Day: The Selling of the American Wedding. A Best of Prager Hour, originally broadcast on June 7, 2007.

Prager H1: BP Must Pay

Prager H1: President Obama addressed the nation last night. His message was essentially this: those bastards at BP will pay (and Democrats will decide who deserves the money). How can an American President compel a private company to turn over billions of dollars?… The President also trots out the old gag that if can “if we can put a man on the moon.” we can create a “green” economy and get off our “addiction” to oil.

Prager H3: Government Extortion

Prager H3: The Administration has essentially extorted $20B from BP. This is a serious blow to free enterprise. Winston Churchill has lost his cigar. The French are making a radical change in their welfare systems, moving retirement age to 62 from 60. Riots are expected. Dennis talks again to Jonathan Alter, senior editor at Newsweek and political analyst for NBC. His new book is The Promise: President Obama, Year One.

Prager H1: Obama and BP

Prager H1: The President has been criticized for comparing the Gulf Oil Spill to 9/11. This criticism is not fair. He never made a one-to-one comparison. But criticizing him for demonizing BP is fair. Driving this oil company to bankruptcy and suspending all offshore drilling will not help us; it will hurt us. Nor will we be helped by the utopian wish to “move us off oil.” Our economy depends on petroleum and will for a long time. That’s reality. Hallmark Cards caves in to a silly complaint by NAACP. More BP: Obama wants the British company to pay wages for all the workers who lose income because of his off-shore drilling ban.

Prager H2: How to Make a Bad Situation Worse

Prager H2: The President’s six month ban on all off shore drilling will make a bad situation much worse. And who will pay for all the lost jobs and income? BP, of course. Sounds more like a solution Hugo Chavez would come up than an American president. Dennis talks to Gordon Grice, essayist, who has written for The New Yorker, Harper’s, and Discover and other magazines. His new book is Deadly Kingdom: The Book of Dangerous Animals. Honduras won! They stood by their principles and prevailed. Joe Lieberman wants to know who we’re fighting.
