On this epsiode of The Q, Mark Bland and Producer Bobby breakdown a story from Oregon about police officers taking down a hardened criminal that is NINE YEARS OLD. Evidently having a scuffle on the playground at 9 is too much for some to deal with and they need to take it to the next level.
Also, Mark and Bobby got some great feedback regarding doing letters from the listeners on the show last time, so they dive into another batch including stories about: Mothers getting alcohol as a Mothers Day gift and whether that is appropriate; What if you best friend saw a private "sexy" picture of your new boy/girlfriend, would you be hesitant to introduce them to your BFF? That and many others on the show this week.
Next Bobby had a serious pile on situation with Facebook regarding a Sandy Hook story. He started to get attcked perosnally for having an opinion that was different than the maority in the discussion and was chastized for that. We discuss the story, the reactions and the reasons for and against Bobby's opinion and why it was such big deal.
Finally we have a little talk about how Russia is deciding to kill off the value of the American Dollar in their trading which potentially could send the US and other nations into a state of hyper inflation if they get enough outside support for such a move. We talk as a nation about "not caring abotu them" and that we are "the best country in the world"....so what happens when everyone stops thinking that and de-values your money internationally to the point that companies in your own coutnry have to overcharge for eveything to keep up? We discuss in depth.
All this and GAME ON/GAME OFF finally returning for the first time in a few weeks. Taking talk radio and turning it to 11....this is THE Q!

On this episode of the show, we get down and dirty with the political positions that Obama and Romney are going to argue about as they gather new votes for the upcoming elections later this year. But why sis we do this, well it was because Mark was joined by typical partner in crime Matt Krueger and young Tenacious Taryn D. Taryn is going to be voting for the first time this fall and the two wanted him to have a solid base for the decision he was making. But that is secondary to the show starting and ending with a bang! The gusy get right into the story about the internet video of the guy giving his daughters boyfriend an ultimatum that he can't refuse and the show ends with the favorite LETTERS FROM THE LISTENERS! All this and mush more await on this episode of the Q....extended for your pleasure!
Travis Cook stops by to talk with Mark about the re-election of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, aside from all the protests that broke out in 2011. All that was fine and dandy, until Mark and Travis have a discussion off air and a news story that Mark reads sends Travis off his rocker! Plus Mark decides to talk about some of his Facebook posts in a new segment and of course they end on a high note talking about a Letter from the Listeners! And finally....two things: 1) I do not believe that conservatives are child molesters by trait! (to find out why, listen to the show). 2) Fred Slow from Too Heavy to Skydive is definitely gonna beat on this one!
