This week we follow the lead of one of our avid viewers, and take a deep look into his concerns about the serious BS happening in the University of California system, which is happening all over the country. It turns out that the rising cost of college tuition is not because of the rising cost of educating students; it's because of Wall Street bankers.

Wall Street is profiting on...

Deconstructing Disinformation
I hear it a lot from folks who aren't "gun knowledgeable": why do people think they need a gun? Carrying a gun won't make you safer. You're more likely to be shot with your own gun. If you're living in a place so dangerous that you think you need to carry, you should move. People who carry guns are just paranoid....
