Ken Kraetzer and John Chuhran of Sons of the American Legion Radio discuss how Army football and this week's game at Yale. Can rebound from last week's disappointing loss at Wake Forest to face a Yale Bulldog team that displayed nearly 700 yards of offense in a com from behind win on their opening day against Lehigh. Can Army find a pass rush to pressure the Eli QB and will their offensive line show maturity in avoiding penalties and setting up their talented backfield for big gains. The game in New Haven, CT is part of Yale's celebration of the 100th anniversary of their historic stadium, the Yale Bowl. All this as Ken and John broadcast from Bob Hyland's Sports Page Restaurnat in downtown White Plains, NY.
Protests at the University of Missouri, Yale and Ithaca College have exposed just how radicalized college campuses have become over the years. Missouri students used the threat of a football player boycott to get the school president fired for alleged racial incidents that may not have actually happened. Today's college students, fully indocrinated by their professors, see racism around every corner and advocate an extreme form of "social justice." They claim to seek diversity and tolerance, yet are brutally intolerant of anyone with views contrary to their own. What can be done about the cultural rot in our universities? The great Michael Lane, host of the Like It or Not with Michael Lane podcast, calls in to discuss.

Are you following events at the University of Missiouri?
Don't bother trying to justify what's happening at #Mizzou by comparison to 1960s college style protests, there are few similarities. But there are some deep contrasts that can be made; among them, in the 1960s, administrators had the moral courage to stand up to Marxists and Maoist bullies.
One more contrast, without giving away all this week's program content, in the '60s, protestors claimed their actions to be about wider freedom. Today, what's happening on campuses like Missouri or Yale is about crushing dissent, and mandatory enforcement of uniformity of thought.
What's happening at #Mizzou is the latest incarnation of #Occupy. And an off-shoot of #BlackLivesMatter. An attempt to instill chaos, and destroy social framework, for the sake of pursuing ambigious goals triggered by events either inconsequential in their original form, or twisted into narratives that don't match the original incident.
Meanwhile, while most eyes are on the college campuses, it's reported the Trans Pacific Partnership deal has landed on Obama's desk, ready to sign. Canada, and Australia are among parties to the TPP already voicing grave concerns. One Australian arbitration lawyer says the text contains provisions for foreign investors to sue governments if those investors believe a govenrment has harmed their business.
Sounds like an other vehicle for psuedo-Marxists like Obama to globally "spread the wealth around", while simultaneously disassembling what's left of U.S. based commerce.

Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014
Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins
Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.
“This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”
The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on
“Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.
Good evening, tomorrow morning on The Meter we will cover the horrific terrorist attacks that killed at least 129 in Paris. ISIS has claimed responsibility as the French President, Francois Hollande calls the attacks an act of war! The attacks occurred at 6 different locations throughout the city as at least one of the terrorists had a Syrian passport. On the heels of the downed Russian airliner, does this indicate a growing threat of worldwide terrorism? What is the role of the United States? In other news, protests are occurring on American college campuses citing racism and so called "injustices". Students at Yale and the University of Missouri sparked the protests that are spreading throughout the country. Some students are demanding free college tution, a cancellation of student loan debt, and a $15 an hour miminum wage for jobs on campus. Of course, the 1% is to foot the bill. What is behind the madness on these perceived liberal paradises? We all also cover the latest in the 2016 election. Please join the discussion at 347-308-8933. Your input is essential.
