We're about 24 hours away from our annual Sept. 10 war speech! This time, the bombing-plus campaign that doesn't need congressional approval (notwithstanding Barack Obama's pre-presidential protestations to the contrary) is targeting the Islamic State, which would surely be trading very poorly on Intrade if we lived in a freer world.
Such will be the first topic of discussion on tonight's live episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later), with able assistance from Party Panelists Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner and Fox News contributor Julie Roginsky. That combo will also comment on the appalling campus memo on "Civility and Free Speech" penned by UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement.
The Atlanta rapper Killer Mike, who was one of the sanest commentators during the Ferguson unpleasantnesses, will talk about the latest developments in the Ray Rice lady-braining scandal. Beloved Reason Senior Editor Peter Suderman then arrives to talk about how emergency room usage is predictably spiking because of Obamacare, despite the backers of the law promising the opposite result. Dan Greenberg of the groundbreaking Sudbury School—where students basically teach themselves—will discuss the controversial model. And Kmele Foster will keep it real about Apple's big pffffftt of an announcement day.
