    I am trying to find a song that was performed on your show on 3/9 by Ken Thomas. The song "Down in Mexico". Where can I find that song? I have searched everywhere. I love the song, can you help?

    When I saw the pilot of MH370 had a sophisticated flight simulator at home and was a Muslim, I knew that wasn't a good sign

    Mike,

    To the extent you may not have already discussed the Independent Payments Advisory Board (IPAB), I would like to share with you an excerpt from a speech made at Hillsdale College's Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C., delivered in October 2013, by Charles R. Kesler, Professor of Government at Claremont Mckenna College. In advising conservatives on denouncing Obamacare, he stresses that in addition to its unfairness, unworkability and unaffordability, more emphasis should be given to its unconstitutional features. To that point, he said:

    "The fattest target is the Independent Payments Advisory Board (IPAB), which is unconstitutional on its face. IPAB consists of 15 members who are not elected by the people but appointed by the president. Their job is to make recommendations to limit Medicare's budget by reducing reimbursementrs to doctors. Unless both houses of Congress overrule IPAB by passing their own equal or greater cuts to Medicare, IPAB's proposals automatically become law. What's worse, Obamacare conspires to make IPAB permanent by mandating that no resolution to repeal it can be introduced before January 1, 2017, or after February 1, 2017. In other words, the Constitution would be operational for one month only--and even then the repeal must pass by August 15, 2017, in order to be valid, and it could not take effect until 2020!
    Congress could presumably unravel these restrictions and undo IPAB anytime it wanted. Nonetheless, the spirit and the letter of this kind of regulation suggest just how averse (and adverse) to the Constitution Obamacare really is. To think that Congress couldn't repeal it, except for one month, and that even then repeal wouldn't take effect for three years alterwards, is astounding....I think the American people would be indignant over this attack on their liberty to govern themselves. But they won't be angry if conservatives don't inform them about this travesty."

    Mike, I sent this same information to Donald Crawford, President of the Crawford Broadcasting Company, saying that I realize informing the American public about a piece of legislation that was intentionally crafted to confuse, deceive and obfuscate is a herculean task. He lifted my spirits by responding, "...we intend to deal very much so with that illegal and unconstitutional board when it is up and running and the effects are known. The information you provide is generally accurate, of serious concern, and will be fully verified when the time comes to deal with this insidious board."
    Thank you, Mike, for your tireless efforts to keep us all informed about this administration and its rapacious policies.

    Regarding your position that the biggest thing the Republican party is doing wrong is not sharing its positions and reasoning with the lunch box folks. I would disagree at to the biggest mistake. I would put that at selling out the farm and the house to increasing spending and the size of government when they literally owned the entire congress and White House. And the second biggest is attacking the so called Tea Party which is made up heavily of the people they aren't talking to and explaining their positions to. I believe we get it and the party no longer does get it. The current group in Congress is weak and has no fight in them or they are saying one thing and doing the other. Either way they are losing me and thousands of others as they fiddle away while America burns.

    I am a born Arkansan and I am truly deeply embarrassed on your views regarding birth control. I am a married registered nurse (BSN) to a physician. We are well educated and informed citizens who have chosen to have 2 children. I do not want any more children, thus my and my husband's choice. I choose to take birth control but my husband is employed by a Catholic Health System and under their plan, they do not "pay" for birth control claiming that this interferes with their religious freedom. Granted, But this interferes with my rights and my choice. Although, my husband is employed by this company, it does not require him to believe in what they do. It truly boggles my mind that you suggest that the "government" wants to be my sugar daddy. Believe ME, MR. HUCAKABEE, I do not need a Sugar Daddy! I can afford the $100+ price on my birth control pills.BUT the problem is......I should not have to pay this just because my husband's employer's doesn't agree. If they are claiming religious freedom......I am claiming human rights.Not every woman who wants contraceptives is taking birth control to be a "wayward" woman and just have sex. You sir, need to educate yourself,otherwise you and your uneducated peers will be creating more problems. Birth control....self-explanatory===Less unwanted births and abortions!!! GET
    IT?????
