In this exerpt, which originally aired on Saturday, August 21, I breakdown my thoughts on Biden’s Afghanistan debacle. This disaster sits squarely on the President’s shoulders. He was not following the plan negotiated by former President Donald J. Trump. He was not listening to his military commanders nor the memos sent to his own Secretary of State. He wanted to appease the woke factions of the Democrat party and hold a campaign promise, without regard on how to make it a success. In his mind, simply cutting off military support and pulling the plug was a cool idea. Now, the leaders of the Western world are nearly in unison in their criticism and, in many cases, their condemnation of the actions of the United States. The world is now a much darker and more dangerous place, thanks to the ineptness perpetrated by the Biden administration.
I did have one side discussion about being a fill-in for Erick Erickson and how he seems to be one of the front-runners in the race to fill the 12PM to 3PM ET spot left with the passing of Rush Limbaugh. It is quite a privledge for me to be sitting in the fill-in host role.
As the episode wraps up, I am joined via the phone by US Congressman Barry Loudermilk. He, too, is disgusted at the utter disaster created by one poor decision after another with regard to Afghanistan. The loss of faith of our allies, the emboldening of the Taliban and the encouragement our enemies feel is the result of a desire to replace a mean tweeting President with a doddering Sock Puppet-in-Chief instead.
Actor - Writer - Director - Radio - Veteran | I like ‘guy’ things: women, sports, video games, dogs, drinking, football, shooting guns, war movies, action movies, sci-fi movies and playing the hero. I am a red-blooded, American male through-and-through. But, I have another side as well, a deep and entrenched creative side, which started with writing and evolved to include acting and radio. As a result, I have appeared in nearly 100 stage shows and been involved in dozens of motion pictures, including two independent features available on Amazon Prime.
I have also been in broadcast radio for over 20 years. Thus far, I have been honored to receive five GAB Awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters: Two for Best On-Air Personality and three for Best Talk Show.
It was only natural with these pursuits, podcasting would eventually be added to my plate. In late 2017, I decided to start a show with my buddy and co-host, Walt Murray, called, The Wilder Ride. We examine the films of Gene Wilder in the movies by minutes format. This has opened the door to meeting so many new and amazing podcasters from around the world and led to some amazing friendships! As Shakespeare puts it, “I am amazed and know not what to say!” Afterwards, my wife and I started a show called, 'The Marriage Fit Podcast" where we talk about our lives as a blended family. Our tag line is it's a show about trying to make things fit, staying fit, and not throwing a fit.
Of all the roles I play, though, I want to point out that there are two I consider more important than any I have ever played (or will ever play) and that is being a DAD and HUSBAND. I have four girls, ages, 26, 24, 23, and 21 and there is nothing I won't do for them. And, none of life's ambitions would be possible without the strength and support of my best friend in the entire world, my wife, Susan. Regardless of anything else, nothing will ever outshine them.
