Tonight on The Independents: Unsustainable Debt, Chaotic Immigration, Mideast Turmoil, Fracking Earthquakes, Comcast Harassment, NASA Aliens, California Dissolution, Bitcoin Legalization, Lois Lerner II, and Online Aftershow


Ruh-roh. |||

Tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later) leads off with a conversation about the Congressional Budget Office's latest long-term debt nightmare projection, featuring Party Panelists Jimmy Failla (comedian) and Brian Morgenstern (uh, also a comedian, but a Republican guy, too!). The funnymen will also have words to say about the negative immigration poll numbers for both President Barack Obama and the Republican Party, the Comcast customer service rep from hell, and a NASA official's claim that humans will find aliens within 20 years.

Michael Weiss of The Interpreter will discuss the latest Israel/Hamas rockets and ceasefire proposals, U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Justin Rubinstein will tell us where we stand on the fracking/earthquakes hypothesis, the Pacific Legal Foundation's Timothy Sandefur will discuss the meaning of California recognizing Bitcoin and the plausibility of the Golden State being split into six pieces, and I will touch on the Federal Election Commission's Lois Lerner problem.

Online aftershow begins on foxbusiness.com/independents just after 10.
