02.15.14: Attacking Politicians, Making Friends in High Places, 2A vs. CA's 9th Court, UAW and VW vs. Its Employees, Not Hillary and Not Shooting Windmills
We get politics, politicians and political BS out of our systems on this episode of Hank Watson's Garage Hour, and yes, you want to listen. We hit all of the big targets: the weaponization of Obama's White House (scary), Hillary in 2016 (less likely than you think), and we connect it with local issues like San Diego's new mayor (Faulconer - is half-good enough?), term limits (purging ossified career politicians in small towns like La Mesa, CA), and the definition of ossified, La Mesa's 30-year mayor, Art Madrid (more likely to have a drink).
It's not all political, though - this is the Garage Hour. We dabble in auto manufacturing (UAW and VW vs. Americans), Dude Food (Mexican dining options in San Diego), the shooting sports (including the CalGuns San Diego's carbine educational event at Matt Klier's Active Shooter Defense School), the invasion of the solar panels in San Diego's rural communities, and the suggestion that you avoid shooting windmills unless they shoot at you first.
In studio? Awesomeness: Kristine Alessio, Vice Mayor of the city of La Mesa; .45 Phil, 27-year Marine and Special Assistant to the Vice Mayor; Crag Maxwell, musclebound antagonist of crooked politicians and owner of Maxwell's House of Books; Hoosier Eric (all the way from Indiana); and the host with the most... speeding tickets... Justin Fort.
