Prager H3: Open Lines

Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda. Topics raised include: how do you talk a senior citizen out of suicide; can you rush someone with a gun and stop him; is it okay to dream about other women; what do you with a six-year-old who already envies her friends; should a mother let her 12-year-old son look at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue; and, is Dennis sorry he didn’t run for Senate. A Best of Prager Hour. Originally broadcast on April 27, 2007.

Prager H1: S.N.A.P., Crackle, and Pop

Prager H1: A NY Times article reports there is no longer stigma associated with receiving food stamps. Food businesses, farmers, city and state governments, as well as recipients love the system. Of course, it is no longer called “food stamps” .too much stigma. It’s now the SNAP. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. card system. Everyone seems to love it except the relatively few Americans still paying federal income tax. Dennis sees no difference between welfare and food stamps, but the government says there is a big difference. As explained by a caller who was told by a sibling who gets assistance, “welfare is a hand out. food stamps are a hand up!” Also, John Goodman, President and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis, joins the program to discuss healthcare reform.

Prager H2: Food Stamp Fallout

Prager H2: The discussion on food stamps continues as callers weigh in. Obviously, if someone is starving they should receive assistance, but what effect does this “hand up” have on society long-term?

Prager H3: Courting Disaster

Prager H3: Dennis speaks with Marc Thiessen, former member of the White House Senior staff, chief speechwriter for George W. Bush, and author of Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama is Inviting the Next Attack. Among other things, Thiessen explains what terrorists now know, how America interrogates captured terrorists, thanks to the Obama administration’s de-classifying of previous highly secret documents.

Prager H3: If You Oppose Same Sex Marriage, Are You a Hater?

Prager H3: That’s the standard Left line. But is there any truth to it or is it a Left fiction? Actress Ann Hathaway has left the Catholic Church because her brother is gay and the Catholic Church, in Hathaway’s nuanced view, is not sympathetic to the gays. It’s harder to “come out” as a conservative than to come out as a homosexual. President Obama wants Congress to overcome “petty politics.” What “petty politics” is he talking about? Taking over one-sixth of the economy? That “petty politics”?

Prager H1: The Foolish Monologues

Prager H1: Joy Behar and her guest, feminist Eve Ensler, the author of “The Vagina Monologues” are astounded that there are people who don’t believe in Global Warming; and of all those people, Sarah Palin, is the worst. Should believing in Creationism render you unfit for public office? Believing in the Global Warming leads to serious social and economic consequences, but what does believing in a religious idea like Creationism lead to?

Prager H1: PDS

Prager H1: The mainstream media, the Herd, has made much of the fact that Sarah Palin wrote a few speech notes on her palm. Dennis analyzes this latest manifestation of the PDS – Palin Derangement Syndrome.

Prager H2: Cheney Was Right

Prager H2: One year into the Obama administration and Dick Cheney is looking better and better. And the President’s recent actions prove it. The Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, is interrupted with shouts of “murderer” while giving a speech at a college in California. 11 students were arrested. What will happen to these hooligans now? Probably nothing. Dennis continues his discussion of the disturbing Super Bowl Doritos ad featuring a little boy slapping an adult.
