Prager H1: Groundhog Day

Prager H1: Dennis plays a clip from one of his favorite films, Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray. It has a profound theme: it’s easy to get stuck in a rut in life and very hard to get out it. This year, by the way, the ground hog saw his shadow, so six more weeks of winter predicted. Dennis discusses his appearance last night on Larry King and the hate mail he received as a result of it.

Prager H2: Big, Fat American Budget

Prager H2: Dennis talks to John Makin, visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and former consultant to the U.S. Treasury Department, Congressional Budget Office, and International Monetary Fund. Dennis also talks to Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay and Republican primary candidate for CA governor.

Prager H3: Ultimate Issues Hour: No Guarantees

Prager H3: There are no guarantees in life. Don’t assume if you’re a success that you’ll remain a success. But, on the other hand, don’t assume if things are bad that they will stay bad. What holds for individuals in this case, also holds for nations, including the US.

H1: Mr. Prager Goes to Washington

Prager H1: Dennis went to DC to speak to Congressional Republicans. He reflects on the event and replays his speech.

Prager H2: Go Government

Prager H2: President Obama’s new budget projects a deficit of well over a $1.25T. Another $20 billion has been founded for education, however. The Bush tax cuts are repealed. This amounts to the highest tax increase in US history. Does anybody making $200K feel rich? The Left isn’t interested in character development. Institutions need to be reformed not people.

Prager H3: New York, New York

Prager H3: Senator Chuck Schumer, who has fought so hard for civilian trials for terrorists and for closing Gitmo, now says he doesn’t want KSM’s trial anywhere in New York State. Frank Rich calls John McCain “unpatriotic.” John McCain?… Tony Blair defends himself – eloquently as usual – in yet another British government inquiry. Howard Zinn, the Leftist historian, passed away last week. The hagiography has already begun.

Prager H1: Equality of Outcome

Prager H1: Eight years ago, Norway mandated that forty percent of corporate boards must be comprised of women. The law is now commonplace throughout the Continent. This is a perfect expression of the Leftist view – equality of outcome trumps equality of opportunity. Nancy Pelosi vows to pass ObamaCare – by any means necessary. The SEC will now require companies to disclose their global warming risk.

Prager H2: Happiness Hour: Black Boxes

Prager H2: A black box is something about yourself that you hide from others or even from yourself. “Where did that come from?” is a common reaction one might have when dealing with another person who suddenly acts in a way you couldn’t have predicted. Transparency is the opposite of the black box. The latter is a far clearer road to happiness than the former. Best of Prager Show Hour. Originally broadcast on August 15, 2008.
