Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/12/13 Obamacare Propaganda and Golden Globe Snubs

Tony wastes no time in discussing the latest Obamacare hysteria. When the White House brings in celebrities to sell their healthcare disaster to the American people, isn’t that desperate? It’s more than that. It’s flat out propaganda! Tony takes particular aim at TV star and entertainer George Lopez. It’s worth the listen…but, if you’re at work, you might want to use headphones.

Great callers keep the conversation  going, but it doesn’t stop Tony from sharing the story of blogger Jim Hoft and how, after a horrific illness, he became a victim of Obamacare. Plus, how does a 16 year old boy not go to jail for drinking, driving and killing four people?

Then, the Golden Globe nominations are out, and Oprah – and The Butler – get zero nominations. Is this a message? And foods you wish you were eating right now!

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/11/13 Budget Breakdown and 6 Year Old Sex Offenders

Tony takes a look at the Ryan/Murray budget. But instead of breaking it down over simple party lines, he discusses how it affects everyday Americans and whether or not its good strategy for the Democrats or the Republicans. Heritage Foundation budget expert Romina Boccia joins Tony to dig even deeper.

Then, ever been offered $10.5 million dollars? Tony has, and he discusses how the whole thing went down. And how does a fake sign language interpreter make his way on to a stage with world leaders, and how does he get within 10 feet of the President of the United States? What kind of security is this?

And a six year old elementary school student is labeled a sex offender for kissing a girl on the hand. Just another example of political correct hysteria, and one more reason to homeschool.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/10/13 Funeral Selfies and Kanye Dreaming

A late start to the show, but that doesn’t keep Tony from being fired up about the President’s demeanor at the funeral service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa. One would thing that President Obama would understand the significance of the day. Tony shows how that’s not really possible.

Then, the US government sells off all its shares in GM, losing only $10 billion on the bailout. Was it worth it? As Tony discusses, it’s not about the money, which you never want to lose. Its about telling our kids that government is here to solve our problems, which it never does.

Finally, Kanye West thinks being a rapper is as dangerous as being a cop, or being at war. Also, a leading expert declares that Kentucky bourbon is superior to Scotch whiskey. So, you know, have a drink!!

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/9/13 – Miley, The Pope And MSNBC WTF?

Tony has a full slate today, and it starts with Time’s Person of the Year. It’s a strange list of finalists, with Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, Pope Francis and even Miley Cyrus. But the story isn’t the list, according to Tony, it’s who in the world still pays attention to Time Magazine!

Then, Tony rings in a new segment on Tony Katz Tonight – MSNBCWTF! First, Tony digs in on Melissa Harris Perry’s statement that the term “Obamacare” is racist. Then, he discusses why Toure is calling CNN’s Don Lemon a leader of “white people.”

Finally, Sports Mike joins Tony to talk about the future of the Redskins and whether Peyton Manning can ever win in the cold, even though he just did.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/5/13 – Nelson Mandela And Fast Food Thursday

Winter storms took over Tony’s flagship station in Indianapolis, so plenty of attention was paid to the accumulating snow and ice throughout Indiana. But it wasn’t too long that Tony was back on topic, speaking quite clearly about the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela.

Then, Tony has the full review of what happened on Fast Food Thursday, including his appearance on a far left-leaning radio program. Its clear that Tony understands how ideologues operate, and why he steers clear of that kind of talk.

He also follows up on the Harvard poll that shows young people are not interested  in President Obama or Obamacare. As the polls show, Hispanics aren’t that interested in the president, either.

David Limbaugh Talks About Obama and Obamacare

Appearing on Tony Katz Tonight this past Wednesday, author and columnist David Limbaugh went on a stream of consciousness rant with host Tony Katz regarding the Obama presidency and Obamacare. Not for the faint of heart, Limbaugh’s comments are hard hitting, provocative and accusatory.

The author of The Great Destroyer and Crimes Against Liberty then discussed, in detail, the importance of being true to oneself and one’s value, and why it is that people lose elections when they lose sight of these important ideals.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/4/13 – The NSA Is Listening and David Limbaugh

Tony’s article on the proposed fast food strikes has taken off, being picked up by TownHall.com and FOX Nation. The more people hear about Big Labor asking workers to participate in a shakedown, the more they want to fight back.

Then author and columnist David Limbaugh joins the program to talk about Obamacare and the Obama presidency. It can only be described as a stream of consciousness coming from Limbaugh, and one you won’t want to miss.

The NSA, it turns out, isn’t just listening to some phone calls. They’re listening to every call – about 5 billion a day. If everyone is listening, then what does it matter what you say?

Finally, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin gets fined $100,000 for getting in the way of a Baltimore Ravens wide receiver. Not only a fine, but a possible loss of draft picks. Is this too steep of a penalty? Tony discusses it with Sports Mike.

How Big Labor Is Trying To Bully Fast Food Workers

This article was originally posted on WIBC.com

 

Fast food workers are planning a strike to force employers to pay them $15 per hour. This Thursday, in over 100 cities across the nation, Big Labor is coordinating with “grassroots” activists to pressure these employers to pay a “living wage.” From all the press, you’d think the push toward higher wages was something noble. But, this is Big Labor. And no one will bully, threaten or intimidate to steal your hard earned money more than Big Labor.

The group Fast Food Forward, one of the organizations in sync with Big Labor to shame fast food restaurants into extinction, states their purpose:

In America, people who work hard should be able to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent, childcare and transportation.

While fast food corporations reap the benefits of record profits, workers are barely getting by — many are forced to be on public assistance despite having a job.

Raising pay for fast food workers will benefit workers and strengthen the overall economy.

It’s not the workers that Big Labor wants to benefit. It’s Big Labor that Big Labor wants to benefit.

The idea of a living wage is a fantasy. It’s a myth. Like the Chupacabra, or a working Healthcare.gov website or that Lindsay Lohan is an actress. It’s based on an idea that a certain amount of money, per hour, will make everything better. In this case, the elitists decided on $15 per hour.

Why? How is $15 per hour before taxes a living wage? Based on what? How much the elitists and Big Labor think you should earn? Why not $20 and hour? $50? Do I hear $100?

It’s at this moment the Progessives and power merchants say things like, “Oh, come on!” and “Get serious, will you?” But I’m as serious as they are. (Actually, they’re not serious. They’re dangerous, but they’re not serious.)

A living wage can’t be quantified. It’s based on the person and the needs/wants/desires of the person. The healthy person requires less money than the person with specific health conditions. The person who lives in Los Angeles needs more for rent than the person who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The mother who has two children needs more than the single person.

Or, I could be totally wrong! The healthy person might live in Los Angeles while this sick person lives in Tulsa. The mother of two may be a better money manager that that single person, who uses their spare cash to buy drinks at local bars. It’s not out of the realm of possiblity. It’s not like some who were driven from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina used their FEMA payments to pay for lap dances, right? Personal responsibility plays a huge part in the amount of money people need to “live.”

There is no way to determine a living wage anywhere in America. It’s a lie, and so is the idea that groups like Fast Food Forward and Big Labor care about fast food employees. Listen up, fast food workers, because you’re being used! Not by McDonald’s or Wendy’s or Chick-Fil-A, but by Big Labor and the political candidates (ideology) they support. BIg Labor wants you to unionize because Big Labor wants you to pay union dues.

They want your money, and they don’t give a good holy damn about you!

No one, anywhere, deserves more money at the expense of someone else. People can earn more money, and they should follow whatever path is necessary if earning more money is their motivation. Use jobs like these to learn the skills necessary to find other employment. Use jobs like these to work your way up the corporate ladder. Or, find another job. (Difficult, I know, in the Barack Obama economy; The same economy that has some people working these jobs because there are no other jobs. A difficult Catch-22 that a good 2014 election might actually fix!)

But don’t expect fast food restaurants to give in to Big Labor’s mythical demand of $15 per hour. And never think that striking for it is noble. You’re not striking for your rights. You’re participating in a shakedown.

For the rest of us, Thursday is a good day to treat yourself to some fast food. Fill the drive-thrus. And be patient. Some fools will actually strike, and things may run a little slower than normal. For those who don’t strike, and don’t give in to Big Labor’s bullying tactics, say thank you. And, if you can, offer them a job. Because they’re the one who understand hard work, and are working to create their opportunities.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/3/13 – The New Obamacare Salespitch

As promised, the President has decided to re-market and re-brand Obamacare. This is what happens when a signature piece of legislation doesn’t work as described. More to the point, when a bad idea shows itself as a bad idea, and all you can do is try to spin it.

Tony talks about this, and whether or not sexism will be the calling card of Hillary supporters in 2016.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio Podcast – 12/2/13 – Fast Food Strikes and Lachlan Markay

Tony talks about the planned rallies by Big Labor to attempt to unionize fast food workers. The plan? Organize strikes by telling people that there’s such a thing a living wage. As only Tony can, he takes apart the myth of the living wage, like he did in his latest piece on WIBC.com.

Then Tony exposes the odd reply of the Kinky Boots brigade. Many were upset with people in full drag, as part of the Broadway production Kinky Boots, who were involved with the Thanksgiving Day parade. Show creator Harvey Fierstein says it was important to have the show in the parade to start a “conversation.” Tony has a few conversations of his own….wonder if Harvey will respond?
