Good morning. Today, on The Meter we discuss President Obama's decision to once again involve The United States militarily in Iraq. As ISIS continues it's operations in Iraq, many calling it genocide, was Obama forced into this action? Mitt Romney warned in 2012 that the hasty withdraw from Iraq may indeed cause such a scenario. The cease fire between Hamas and Israel has ended as Hamas rockets are flying again and Israeli air strikes are pounding Hamas positions once more. Is Presdient Obama's in the wrong side of this conflict? Back home, we will also cover the lastest on the 2014 midterms. The call in number is 714-214-6214. Please join us at 11:00 AM.

Your intrepid host can't believe the similarities between the problems in Iraq and the problems in the large decaying urban centers...a sense of hope inspired by the access and use of guns of all sizes and descriptions. A sense of hope fueled by the rage of youth and a desire to be wanted...figuratively and really. Both Iraq and urban America are both finding their voice at the expense of too many. In Iraq we created the nightmare, thanks to Dick Cheney and his merry band of idiots and in America it was created by the NRA and the fueled anger of a disaffected group of young black men who only see hopelessness. Oh, and a cop in Missouri killed an unarmed black teen with multiple shots...because he was black? I thought they coul;d only do that in Florida.
