+11F: Obama Lied about efforts to cap the increase in Average Global Temperatures at 2 degrees Celsius.

25 years ago I came to this country on a holliday. I came here not for a better life I had that in my own country. But I came here just because travelling across all the states in this country took my beath away. A country of people not frightened to speak to strangers. A country where I could ski in the mornings and sleep in the deserts at night. This my America took my breath away. I decided to stay. Eventually this country became my own. I witnessed Reagan get elected. I saw my country fighting for a small island the Falklands who belonged to someone else.

Music that should be heard

Thom employs excellent music within his program.

Here are some suggestions...because, A) The lyrics tell excellent stories. B) These artists deserve far more attention than they get:

James Keelaghan - "Stonecutter" - The effects of WW1 on Canadian masons. Listen for the verse, "I couldn't say that I agreed, 'cause I knew what war was. It was worker killing worker, for some politician's cause."

James Keelaghan - "Nothing" - The essence of Mitt Romney.
