    You can tell a man is classy, when he can tell a foreskin joke without actually saying the word.
    I bow to you, sir.

      Could the show notes link to the ABC news quote of Bill Clinton, “Oklahoma City saved my presidency.” as cited by Scott Horton in this interview?

    Bob, please do an episode on 9/11. Maybe interview someone from Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth. I find it discouraging that many people in the liberty movement avoid talking about the truth concerning 9/11. By accepting and repeating the official story, all we do is empower the government to continue the destructive and horrible war on terror. Thanks for considering this suggestion.
