Lars got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather (twice an hour) on KTIL (The Mighty 1590) from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon (75 miles West of Portland, Oregon).
36 years later, he’s only moved 75 miles east to Portland and light years to “the Right”. Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson brings nearly four decades of experience as a radio and television journalist to the microphone for six hours of the best talk radio in America. Six hours of daily prep keep The Lars Larson Show on top of the news and top-of-mind for listeners across the country.
Along the way, Lars has worked for more than a dozen radio stations and five television stations. Today, Lars holds down the fort from 12pm – 4pm on Radio Northwest flagship FM NEWS 101 KXL. His local talk show airs on seventeen stations in the Pacific Northwest (and earns him the biggest local talk radio audience in the region).
This is the 226th anniversary of the signing of that wonderful document that means so much to so many of us, and apparently means so little to President Obama.
In fact, the Heritage Foundation put together a list of five different ways that Obama has trampled on the constitution:
Happy Constitution Day!
Do you have an active sex life? And if you do have an active sex life, is it anyone else's business?
You'd better get ready, because it's about to become the governments business all thanks to, you guessed it, ObamaCare!
It doesn't matter what reason you're heading to the doctor, or if it's even relevant to the treatment you're getting. You could be headed to the cardiologist, the dermatologist, or headed to get hair plugs...
When you go to the doctor, they will be required to ask if you have an active sex life, how many partners you have, if you bat for the other team, and on and on...
This is just another prime example of how this one bill is slowly taking away your right to privacy, and forcing doctors to break their Hippocratic oath.
Dr. Betsy McCaughey joined me on the program today to get a little more in depth on what we can expect to be asked about what goes on in between the sheets...
1. The Governor of California is about to sign a bill that allows non-physicians to perform abortions. That's right! You don't even have to be a doctor to abort a baby. THAT'S NUTS!
2. Jerry Brown is also going to sign a bill that will grant driver's licenses to illegal aliens. What are we doing granting them the ability to legally drive a car?
3. He is also about to grant the right to practice law to, again, illegal aliens!
If the folks in California want a warning about what might happen when government gets out of control...take a look at Colorado.
Colorado passed a bunch of crazy, anti-gun laws that they knew the citizenry did not want.
Guess what happened next? A couple of state senators got recalled.
Be warned government: if you get out of control, the voters are going to take you out of office...
I'll be standing in line at the grocery store behind someone who has a cart full of junk, and then I see them pull out that food stamp/EBT card to pay for it.
So I"M buying their junk food.
Don't get me wrong, I want people to get some assistance if they're having a tough time paying for food.
But if you're spending your food stamp money on junk food, you're buying the lowest nutrition stuff where you get the least bang for your buck. And that stuff is, arguably, bad for you.
If you want those types of luxuries, spend YOUR OWN money on it.
Phil Roe, Congressman from Tennessee, says let's make it illegal, you can only buy healthy food with food stamps.
I think that's a FANTASTIC idea...I just don't think it has much of a chance of passing in the U.S. Congress.
We all remember where we were 12 years ago today when the terrorists attacked and nearly three thousand died. What I can’t believe is where we stand today. Because we caught and killed the terrorists who attacked us more than a decade ago. But the terrorists who murdered Americans in Benghazi a year ago are still free. Obama’s never explained his lies about Benghazi but we know he did it to win the election. And President Obama proposes to help the same kind of al Qaeda terrorists in their fight against the government of Syria. President Obama will show up at 9-11 remembrance ceremonies today and say all the right words today. But every time I see Obama I remember he counts a confessed terrorist, Bill Ayers, as a friend. He backed the Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt. We can debate the reasons for the Iraq war forever, but at least President Bush asked for and got the permission of congress to make war. President Obama claims he doesn’t need to ask. Last night, he didn’t even bother to ask permission because he knew in advance the answer is “no”. When Muslim radicals attacked 12 years ago, our President called it terrorism within an hour. When a Muslim radical shouted allah akbar four years ago and gunned down his fellow soldiers, our current President declared it “workplace violence”.
We've been building to the climax. Will the U.S. strike Syria, or won't they?
It's been a question for weeks, and now it gets even muddier.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken the lead in the crisis, and has gotten the Syrians to agree to give up their chemical weapons to the international community.
This leaves the President in an odd position. He planned to speak to the American people tonight and lay out the case for striking Syria. Now that Syria has, in principle, agreed to give up their weapons, what will the President do tonight?
Will he still lay out the case to strike Syria? Will he take credit for the deal brokered by Russia? (probably)
We talked with Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar today on the show, who says that the Syrian crisis is a prime example of the President leading from behind...
