    Where does the responsibility for the Oregon shootings lie--America's 2nd amendment & guns, the shooter, or both? The shooter's father is blaming the United States' laws & guns instead of placing the responsibility on his son's murderous actions. He's from the UK and claims to have never held a firearm. Do you agree with the Oregon shooter's father? PLUS: There has been a lot of fallout from the Oregon shootings. Many of the victims’ families say they won't meet with the president who will attempt to visit them, are they disrespecting the office of the president or are they exercising their right to privacy?

    Should fantasy football gaming sites be allowed to self-regulate, or should the government regulate them like Las Vegas style gambling? This past week a scandal erupted in the fantasy football industry. Two major fantasy betting companies' integrity were on the line amid allegations of insider trading. Seems employees of these companies were placing bets on information not available to the public. DraftKings and FanDuel came under fire, when DraftKIngs admitted it inadvertently released data before the third week of NFL games. Their employee, "a midlevel content manager, won $350,000 at the rival site, FanDuel, that week." Now the questions are: who, at these companies, has access to such data; how is that data protected; and if these companies need regulation. Both companies admitted that employees of their companies won big money on the competitor's website. They were not allowed to play on their own websites and now are barred from playing on any other site. Should these sites be allowed to 'self-regulate' or should they be held to the same regulations as Las Vegas style gambling?

    Do you think our leaders lack moral courage? Where are the people who will step up and confront problems head-on? Or like John Horvat, author of the book, Return to Order says, “we need those who have moral courage to sacrifice themselves for the common good." Do you agree with that?

  4. 10-8 The Think Tank 1210pm, Release of Prisoners


    Thu, 8 Oct 2015

    Is it a good or bad idea to release thousands of prisoners serving time in federal prisons for non-violent drug crimes? The Justice Department is set to release 6000 prisoners early from prison – the largest 1-time release of federal prisons. Why? To reduce overcrowding & provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past 3 decades. Do you support the move?

Should we trust the Justice Department when it comes to the consent degree. I think we'll have a look at the difference between -- statements with an intent to be published in documents that are with the Indy consent decree negotiations that took a year and a result. The documents in the work inside the consent decree negotiations up and went very well two parties argued on points of differences and came to a conclusion. But really here's what we all know that in March 30 2004. The department just wrote a letter. Big finish in its investigation of eight years with no -- no consent decreasing it just really can't say it's been decades. There had been problems spots and -- is critical question about that.

I think is what competition is taken over several different context the simple truth is this. If we have a history since may of 2010 is that we work towards consent -- things change. I'm up property owner in the war -- York property owners and -- and I know that I want the mayor won't be fighting from me as a property. And I think that's what he's trying to do not support that. Separate and apart from that we didn't have the issue police department and sheriff's office and all of those competing interest so I.
