    Mickey Fulp--Why Are Gasoline Prices Falling In August? 19.Aug.14

    in Finance

    Mickey Fulp, the Mercenary Geologist and I discussed current petroleum supply trends. While we were speaking, the per barrel price broke $95. It is estimated that world geo-political termoil is keeping almost 4 percent of production off the market. Who knows what the price would be if that was released into the market. Another interesting development is that the Too Big To Fail Banks are no longer welcome in the commodity markets since passage of Dodd-Frank. Perhaps their absence has led to a lower short position and therefore a lower price for all. One thing is certain, it is quite unusual to see gasoline prices decline in August.

    State Sovereignty: Doug Libla, Dave Hinson, Galen Higdon

    in Politics Conservative

    It's Not About Right and Left. It's About Right and Wrong!


    Senator Doug Libla (Missouri 25) has introduced a bill (SB 331) that restricts the release and use of footage from police car and body cameras. He's also made the news recently for introducing a bill that raises gasoline tax (SB 540). We'll discuss these issues with Doug during the first segment.


    Then, we will talk with Representative Dave Hinson (District 119; St Clair and Franklin/Washington Counties) about his bill to decriminalize medical cannabis (HB 800). This bill has passed out of the Select Committee and awaits a House debate.


    Finally, we will speak with Representative Galen Higdon (District 11; St Joseph and Platte/Buchanan Counties). Galen sponsored HB 762, which forbids the State from requiring law enforcement agencies to uitilize body or dash cameras. It also specifies the rules under which those recordings (when they exist) must be released.


    Join us at 7PM Missouri Time on Saturday for this hour. You can call on the studio line at 347-677-1835 to participate with Dave, Mike, and the guests.

    Wallach on Law, Fire & Gasoline --When the Mentally Ill Meet Police

    in News

    Wallach on Law, Fire & Gasoline --When the Mentally Ill Meet Police.  Featuring Ron Honberg of NAMI (the National Alliance For Mental Illness)
     
    Officer-Involved Fatalities & Shootings on the mentally ill are becoming commonplace.  In August, Ezell Ford was killed by two Los Angeles County Police Department officers, who stopped him because he was acting strange, and when a struggle ensued, killed him when they believed he was reaching for their weapons.  Three months earlier, in Detroit, Dontre Hamilton was lawfully sleeping in a public park and had just been questioned by two officers and deemed a non-threat.  A third officer later woke him with a baton, and when a struggle ensued, the officer shot Mr. Hamilton 14 times killing him.  Neither victim was engaged in illegal conduct, and both suffered from mental illness.  None of these officers received “Crisis Intervention Training”—which teaches law enforcement officers how to identify and respond to those afflicted with mental illness.  Ron Honberg of NAMI joins us to talk about what is needed and why.

    Citizens Called to Public Hearing about Palmetto Pipeline Threat on April 21

    in Business

    Local citizens are asked by the Facebook group Push Back the Pipeline and Ogeechee and Savannah Riverkeepers to join together to voice their displeasure at the proposed pipeline and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT)’s handling of this process. The collaboration invites all concerned persons to meet and discuss the implications of this project at the GDOT public hearing on Tuesday, April 21 at the Richmond Hill City Center (520 Cedar Street) beginning at 5 p.m.


    Kinder Morgan, the largest energy infrastructure company in North America, plans to build the buried pipeline to transport gasoline, ethanol and diesel from the Gulf Coast to the South East. The company applied to the GDOT for a certificate of public convenience and necessity, which if approved, will authorize it to condemn property from private citizens and cannot be appealed. Time is running out on the 90-day period to fight the application and after the GDOT public hearing on Tuesday, April 21, it will be too late for citizens to voice their issues.


    Top Reasons Why Citizens Against the Palmetto Pipeline:
    • Eminent Domain for a Private Company is WRONG.
    • Big Oil Monopoly = Higher prices at the pump.
    • 250 Georgia jobs lost.
    • Private Property will be TAKEN.
    • Georgia deserves answers from Kinder Morgan not Empty Promises.
    • Pipeline would endanger rivers, marshes and wetlands.
    • Palmetto pipeline is not earthquake proof; Savannah and Coastal Georgia run along a fault line and are exposed to seismic risk.


    A rally is also scheduled for Saturday, April 18 at noon on Johnson Square in Savannah, but it is believed that the real impact will come from the demonstration presented at the GDOT public hearing on Tuesday, April 21.

    Thirty-Four: It's Almost Over (Thank God)

    in Hockey

    The end of the long, dull, maddening grind that Kings fans everywhere refer to as "the regular season" is thankfully almost here. With four games left to play in just six days, the Kings have a chance to finish as high as 2nd in the Pacific division (giving them home ice in the first round of the playoffs) or as low as, uh, not in the playoffs at all. That's weird, right? We'll discuss it with our guest Mike (@mikeFAIL) of Matchsticks & Gasoline, SBN's blog for the Calgary Flames. The Kings & Flames will play Thursday with Los Angeles looking to leapfrog them in the standings, so hopefully tonight's episode will not devolve into mindless shouting. Also, we'll probably pause to spit on the grave o-uh, I mean eulogize the 2014-15 San Jose Sharks. Fun times!
