Top stories updates. Get your July4th week started off right with updates on the top stories. Chaos on the Rio Grand, as illegal immigrants storm across our unprotected border, and a new study shows almost all the new jobs since 2000 have gone to immigrants legal and illegal. The inequality story line being advanced by Joseph Stiglitz now dissing his hometown of Gary, Indiana. By the way, what policies encourage inequality? Where was Minnesota Senator Al Franken while President Obama visited the liberal bastion of Lake Harriet, in Minneapolis last week? You’d think a Senator who voted with the president 100 percent of the time would want to be seen with his hero, but no. Franken wasn’t with the president at the town meeting, or at his speech at the ‘castle shaped’ Lake Harriet Band Shell. How about that! Plus what’s this election about? Economic Growth!

I remember. This summer is so amazing for me, it’s triggering all kinds of memories from different parts of my childhood. So, I decided to share some of my memories from back in the day, from staring up at the clouds, to playing on the train platforms, to sneaking out and running around the neighborhood in the middle of the night. Summer in all its glory. Plus some outtakes, after several attempts to share these very personal memories on a very windy summer day. Great for the trip to the lake for the July 4th weekend, or late night. Sponsored by Edelweiss Design

A street level live podcast updating top stories. Many people listen to podcasts while driving, so why not do a live podcast from the driver’s seat? Join Bob Davis as he rolls across the metro on his way to the bank. President Obama is in town, eating Juicy Loosey’s and talking about the economy. Despite the president’s taste for Matt’s burgers, restaurants in Minnesota say increases in the minimum wage will cause them to raise prices. In other parts of the country, restaurants and other small businesses are finding ObamaCare to be a particularly sticky wicket when it comes to insuring their employees, versus the cost. The Speaker of The House gets ready to sue the executive branch and a top senator says if Attorney General Holder doesn’t appoint a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of the lost Lois Lerner emails, he should be impeached. Now suddenly the EPA seems to have the same problem; losing emails, which allegedly show wrong doing, and that congress seems to be interested in.  Plus, are government agencies that produce the economic numbers cooking the books? Throw in hot yoga, memories of trips to the Dairy Queen and some Somali women, and you’ve got a story to tell!  Sponsored by X Government Cars
