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, popular guest Andy Echele makes his long awaited return to the show after spending 5 months on a island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with the equivalent of 1978 life going on. Andy returns to talk with Mark and Producer Bobby about the island and what are some of the things he will miss and what it was like being put into self imposed exile.
Also, its 2014 and Coloradians have the ability to purchase marijuana legally without any repercussions. Andy takes exception with this when he brings up the legal ramifications regarding the national law that still has it as illegal. Mark, Bobby and Andy discuss the the two sides to this and why it will or won't work.
Also also Marks first rant of the year has to do with social media and how people tend to choose their ways of unfriending or even blocking people online. This comes on the heels of a story where a old good friend of Marks, that he never talks too anymore, decided without explanation to unfriend him on facebook and block him.
Plus....Overtime, GAME OFF/GAME ON and much more! Real Radio, Real Honest....its the Q!
