Government getting out of the way of business. Chad kicks off the show discussing how the free market, when given the chance, corrects itself. Unfortunately, it’s rare the government stays out of the way long enough to allow those corrections. He uses Uber and Lift as examples of success stories.
In the second hour, Chad talks to News14’s Tim Boyum about his impressions of last week’s Trump rally. Tim says there is no frazzling Trump, even by the most ardent protestors. Chad asks Tim about one of his posts stating cats had taken over the internet. Tim explains this was just another pitch from a Public Relations firm for a story. Neither being cat people, they move quickly to Robert Brawley’s announcement that he is running against Governor Pat McCrory. Tim tells Chad unless he’s able to raise a substantial amount of money, he feels Brawley doesn’t have a shot. Chad and Tim get into how annoyed the Governor’s staff seem to be over Brawley’s entering the race. The two also delve into the allegations by Rep. Justin Burr about House Speaker Tim Moore. Tim says he spoke to House Speaker Moore about campaign finance violations, party infighting and other issues. That interview airs on News14 on December 22nd.
Finally, when do you remember peak oil in the 70’s? Chad shares an article posturing when America will hit “peak Trump.”
