TRJE 354: Why I Love America

The American protest experience, economics (but not really), sexist Judges, petty cops, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience. Picture Unrelated?

Over the past few weeks I've read/seen multiple stories and youtube rants with people angrily compiling about some sports figure protesting. Which is strange, because protesting is the most American thing you can do. It's one of the mechanisms we have to help create change in our country and if you didn't know it, we have changed our country a lot of the years. Twenty-seven times we've updated the constitution (aka amendments) and there was protesting before and after some of these changes. And that's ok. Freedom of speech. Don't just say yes to everything the government says — please, don't — obedience is not a virtue.

If you don't protest, then how are we going to get Apple to put the headphone jack back?

Also on the show, I'm sure I talk about Miley Cyrus somewhere.

You can find all links referred to in the show (well, some of them) on my twitter feed @regisjack.
