Prager H2: Expectations subvert gratitude, making it difficult to be happy. Callers weigh in.
Prager H1: With the fall of Yemen yesterday, Iran gets stronger. This is WWIII, due to the number of people that hate America and the west. The denial and appeasement of evil from this President and the hard left is astounding. They believe Iran will give up their pursuit of WMD’s by negotiating with America. 59% of tax money goes to social programs.
