Episode-418- Audience Feedback for 4-16-10

I still am sitting on a huge back log of questions and inputs from my week away so I though I would do some catching up for you today.  Additionally some recent shows have provoked a few questions/concerns/objections that I thought I would handle today as well.

I have also been asked on the forum to do a show called “The Best of the Tin Foil Hat Brigade”, discussing the possible reality behind some conspiracy theories.  That may be a bit much for an entire show if such theories are not your thing so today I will pick one or two from that thread and give you my opinion (note the word OPINION) on them.

Tune in today to discuss…

  • Barter is reportable as income to the IRS – SO WHAT!
  • Do I “hate government” and want all things turned over to the corporations
  • Is there anything at all behind the 9-11 Truther Movement
  • Is now a good time to buy gold and silver given their current pricing
  • How much longer will vacuum sealed seeds store than conventionally stored
  • Fluoride is a toxin?  Yes!
