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 amazing episode of the Q, its Christmas time and Mark/Bobby love nothing more than to give the gift of audio gold....they succeeded this week! Mark and Producer Bobby welcomed living comic book superhero BOLT BRADY (Professional Wrestler) on the show and he brought along his friend JORDYNNE GRACE (also a Pro-Wrestler). Brady, Grace, Bobby and Mark get into a discussion of their wrestling backgrounds and that turns into a discussion about Austin, TX and what life is like growing up in that part of the country.
Then it is on to a game of GAME ON/GAME OFF where each week Mark, Bobby and the guests discuss things that are potentially unknown to the populace and they try to inform and let you know what to be on the look out for, or something that they feel is important to tell you. And in this case JORDYNNE nails it from downtown. The boys try to match up with their picks, but unfortunately, Ms. Grace pulls the trigger and lets the honesty fly....especially in the GAME OFF!
After a amazing visit with those two, Mark and Bobby switch gears to discuss the conspiracy theories that surround the 1 yr anniversary of the Sandy Hook shootings. Unbeknownst to Mark, Bobby is one of the theorist and he sits back to listen and discuss the value of a conspiracy theory and whether they are relevant. Finally, Mark is unhappy with the year end album lists from all the big music players and thinks he has it better (don't they all). He breaks down the Top 10 albums of 2013...find out if your is on the list! Plus a little OVERTIME after the credits roll on the show.
