    We pay about $2.10 per here in so cal, but soon within! the next 2 to 5 years we will all be paying $5.00 per, its the way of our world, and who will be making money? if you can’t see that you are dead.
    By the way its a way for your loving government to get you out of your car and into the hands of your government master’s. See Boys cars mean freedom and freedom is a bad thing for government, control of your life in all thing’s, that is what government likes, your life your jobs your mind, can anyone get that point?

    I am in agreement with Skip. This show was annoying. Brian cannot answer a question without vacillating all over the place. Does he never get to the point? Bob Dylan – what a joke; Bob Dylan would never stand listening to his drivel. The thing I like about your show is that you are not like the Hannity, Savage, Limbaugh and other conservative clones like Styble. Your show is one of the only ones containing intellectual discourse rather then well polished rhetoric. I agree Richard Pearle would be better than Styble – Heck anyone would. You could also get Daniel Pipes, Dinesh D’Souza or other intellectuals who are not so acutely politically polarized. Wouldn’t that be fun?

    Just wanted to thank my dedicated listeners for their tough love and good advice. I’ll give a guest with whom I disagree a chance to speak, but if it looks like it’s becoming a filibuster, I will heed the listeners’ advice and turn the volume down on his or her microphone. I hesitate to do this, because I strongly believe in free speech for all and hearing opposing views. But there does come a point when, if I can’t get a word in edgewise, a debate becomes a monologue.
    I think Bryan Styble is used to being the host, not the guest, and that may explain his conduct.

    I think Mark needs to define some guidelines for these interviews/debates. After a prespecified amount of time anyone (including all blowhards) will have their volume turned down so that others can be heard. Think of it as “tough love” Mark.
    There wasn’t anything of intellectual value in this show. It was reduced to another Hannity type shouting match pretty quickly. Mark was at a disadvantage since he doesn’t play that game. I would love to hear Mark interview/debate someone like Richard Perle.
