Image:  At an earlier time of nationalization, girls too young for paid jobs learned how they could help the war effort. The US can’t afford to wait indefinitely to start up again or we’ll be in a depression perhaps greater than the Great Depression.  Not much good healthcare in that.  This delay in allowing Americans to be hard-working and productive in face of a massive, multitrillion-dollar expenditure is [not necessarily safe]. “The business of America is business”—Cal Coolidge.
Image:  Venezuela out of gas. Mexico playing catch-up to the virus. Mary O’Grady: @MaryAnastasiaOG The travails of Venezuela, home of the largest oil reserves perhaps in the world—but it’s thick and requires refining.  Local refinery is busted and unrepaired.  Nearest functioning refinery is in US in the Gulf, but Maduro’s seizure of power in place of Guaido  caused the US to refuse Maduro’s business.   As ever, Cuba’s intelligence ops, who are active and in some areas controlling in Venezuela, are not helpful here.

Photo: English: Frank Conrad (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Conrad) 's radio station 8XK in the garage of his home in Wilkinsburgh, PA July 1920, the origin of one of the first pioneering commercial broadcasting stations, the hugely popular KDKA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KDKA) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Conrad was assistant chief engineer of Westinghouse Corporation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westinghouse_Corporation) . His home station was licensed for experimental work (indicated by the "X" in the callsign) and Conrad used it for communication tests with Westinghouse's downtown Pittsburgh headquarters 4 miles away. During WW1 it was one of the few transmitters allowed to remain on the air, After the war, at the request of fellow "hams", on October 17, 1919 Conrad initiated one of the first entertainment broadcasts, playing phonograph records over his transmitter for two hours each Wednesday and Sunday evening. The next year when Westinghouse decided to start a radio station to promote the sale of their radio receivers, it asked Conrad to set it up. KDKA began broadcasting on 833 kHz at a power of 100 watts from a shack on the roof of Westinghouse's Pittsburgh office building on November 2, 1920, with coverage of the Harding-Cox Presidential election.

Boris Johnson, once an ally to Scotland and then something of an adversary. Independentistas in Scotland didn’t care for him; but as the PM grew ill and the Queen made a speech, we’re all sticking together. He’s got mojo and we’re all cheering for him.  The Scottish health minister resigned because she violated her own advice—twice.

Great reporting - find current deaths/(deaths+recovered) and you will find the actual mortality rate is much higher than is being reported. Exclude numbers from China and it is even higher.

A very necessary clarification. Even though the status of the Democratic party is obvious. This airing and publication of the difference between Socialism and redistribution in a Capatalist country was very necessary.

The existence of God is not a scientific issue, it is a philosophical one. It is part of the study of metaphysics. You don't "calculate" or "run an experiment" to determine if God exists. You apply the art of logic to the question. The fact is that existence exists, and only existence exists. All of existence can be tied back to sensory perception. Fabricating another realm that is outside the realm of existence and cannot be gleaned from sensory perception is a contradiction, and contradictions can't exist.

Wrong title. This podcast is John Gordon's book, Fighting for MacArthur.

This guest was way off base about automation creating higher wages. You automate tasks so you don't need skilled workers. Lower skilled workers = lower wages.
