New Yorker Podcast: Terrified States of America

The New Yorker’s “Politics and More” podcast is a favorite of mine.
In this episode, we are reminded that….
….even W didn’t make the so-called War on Terror a religious war,
….since 9/11, 94 Americans have been killed in 10 terrorist crimes perpetrated by 12 people who were either American citizens or permanent residents of this country, not immigrants and not refugees,
….his Muslim travel ban is being criticized even by former Bush officials because it doesn’t address an actual threat.

There’s much more. Give a listen. It’s a thought-provoking 18 minutes you won’t regret.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
