Kim and Producer Steve give a teaser for America’s Veterans Stories show broadcasting Sunday at 3pm and 10pm on KLZ 560AM and KLZ 100.7FM. Marine Veteran Bear Owen talks about his service in the Vietnam War flying A-4 and A-6 jets. Election integrity is essential. If we don’t have free, fair and honest elections, we don’t have a country. Hal Van Hercke, owner of Castlegate Knife and Tool, notes veterans and first responders receive a 10% discount on purchases. Hal comments that LEAP: Learning Enrichment and Academic Progress Program sounds good but it is implementing another bureaucratic agency that is unelected and unaccountable. He references Tri-County health during the COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus disruption and the assault on personal freedom; Polis’ emergency orders were numerous and liberty restrictive. We are a Republic and must hold accountable our representatives, this is a duty of the citizens.
Guest Patti Kurgan, researcher for The Kim Monson Show, joins Kim to discuss LEAP: Learning Enrichment and Achievement Progress Program. Patti’s op-ed, LEAP From Dot to Dot and Where do You Land? explains who the special interests are and who has the potential to financially benefit from the program. LEAP does not address that our students are falling behind in every academic subject. Instead, it creates a new government-run education system for out-of-school learning and is controlled by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats.
