Please join me and my co-cost Kathleen Lecrone as we both celebrate and mourn the year that was.  2010 was a remarkable year in terms of politics and economics.  We'll talk about a wide range of issues, from international issues to the lame duck session of Congress, from so-called "stimulus" to financial markets.

In our first hour (and perhaps for longer, depending on his time constraints), we'll be joined by Congressman Mike Coffman who will give us his military perspective on the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell as well as his expectations for the incoming Congress which, unlike the horrorshow of the past two years, will be run by a large Republican majority.

We'll also talk about Christmas (and maybe I, as a Jew, will learn a few things).

At some point during the show, I'll also ask a trivia question, with the first caller with the correct answer winning a copy of Bastiat's seminal The Law, page for page the best destruction of socialism (and therefore of Progressivism) ever written (in part because it's so short you could read it in one sitting.)

Please join me by listening to (and calling in to) this week’s Backbone Radio program from 5 PM to 8 PM on 710 AM KNUS in Denver and 1460 AM KZNT in Colorado Springs.
