John McCain, Charlie Gard, changes at the White House, North Korea, Jeff Sessions, MS-13, what a week. Let's talk about as much as we can fit into today's show.
In recent years, Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) has tried to appropriate "Main Street" into the names of various lobbying campaigns it is funding. First, it was the "Alliance for Main Street Fairness," a Wal-Mart-led coalition to impose price controls on payment fees. Now the company is behind the "Main Street Energy Alliance," a group of companies who are working to convert the government's ethanol quotas into a weapon against their competitors. Claiming the mantle of American values is utterly ordinary in politics, but there are several reasons to draw attention here. Eric Peters will join me to discuss it.
I'll have the "Culture Wars" and "Outrage of the Week" segments and don't forget about the Edwards Notebook and the Veteran's Tip of the Day! All of this and more as time allows. Listen live, join the chatroom, be a part of the show.
