6:35: Kim Keaton, a local resident, endured the danger of falling trees on Nick Young Road. She’d like to discuss her experience and to thank the Good Samaritan that helped her that day.
7:10: Dr. John Zmirak, with The Stream talks with Bill today. Well, do you think that the United States should remove the “huddled masses,” plaque from the Statue of Liberty?
Dr. Zmirak has penned an article over at The Stream that you really should read: “Should We Take Down The Huddled Masses Plaque from The Statue of Liberty?”
He explains that the United States’ immigration policy doesn’t originate from a poem on the Statue of Liberty. Despite what reporters like Jim Acosta believe, the Huddled Masses plaque from the Statue of Liberty is not the United States’ immigration policy. John notes, “When the Statue of Liberty was built, and when that poem was written, we had no welfare state. No ethnic quotas. No separatist movements among immigrants who resented America and expected “reparations” for the “crimes” the U.S. had supposedly committed against their homelands.”
John continues, “If you showed up and things didn’t work out, you were on your own. Or you leaned on your church and extended family.
