11-12-13 A Post-Veteran’s Day Dialogue: (NOTE: Due to a schedule conflict, this week’s live broadcast will take place at 2 PM ET, rather than the regular 11 AM ET air time). This week’s show will examine a number of military-themed stories, as well as the latest in the world of news. Like Lazarus, the Silk Road (or a site virtually identical to it) has resurfaced online, and we also hear John Kerry (not) discussing his belief in JFK conspiracies. Then, turning our attention to the banking world, why are some of Obama’s significant donors being handed work fixing the “broken” Obamacare site? Next, we have a special showcase on nuclear weapons that have gone missing over the years, with a special audio mashup to mark the occasion:
