Why Oil Prices Will Continue To Climb
Crude oil closed above $102 a barrel today, as news of an unexpected decline in last week’s U.S. oil inventories and the ongoing political turmoil in the Middle East fed concerns about global supplies, lifting prices to a fresh two-and-a-half year high. “The single biggest cause of skyrocketing oil prices is the refusal of this president to develop our own American energy sources,” Sean steamed kicking off Wednesday’s show. “Obama has banned drilling almost everywhere. He promised he’d build new nuclear plants but he hasn’t done that either. Yet, he’s wasted billions on these phony baloney green energy projects which are useless.” And, as Sean predicted months ago, the instability in the Middle East may push oil prices close to two hundred dollars a barrel as a result of Obama’s policies. “Conservatives have said for a long time that we’re ‘all of the above.’ We want drilling, refineries, nuclear facilities, coal mining – basically all the things we’re not doing,” said Sean.
Sean On Sheen
Famous actor Charlie Sheen has been a media whirlwind the past weeks. Reports that his drug use caused the hit TV sitcom “Two and a Half Men” to be canceled, seems just the beginning of this Hollywood rebel’s downfall. He has been linked to several drug and prostitution scandals. Sean discussed Sheen on radio and expressed his concern whenever anyone is on a self-destructive path. Sean says he believes in redemption, although a fast lifestyle is something he cannot relate to. When asked in an ABC interview if he was on any drugs he said “I am on a drug, it’s called Charlie Sheen. Um, it’s not available because if you try it once you will die, your children will weep over your exploded body. Too much?” Sean also is displeased that the media wants to see a train wreck and they don’t give a damn. They are motivated by sales and ratings and not the well-being of Sheen and his four small children. Sean reminded listeners that he has young kids and taking the drugs he reportedly is and at the levels he is will take his life. And that’s the reality of the situation.

Gov. Kasich Defends Bold Budget Agenda
The massive pro-union protests moved today from Wisconsin to Ohio. That state's two year budget deficit stands at a staggering eight billion dollars. And in an effort to bring that down, GOP Governor John Kasich is pushing a bill that would limit the collective bargaining rights of many state workers. Sean spoke with Gov. Kasich about his proposal on last night’s ‘Hannity.’ Kasich provided some staggering statics about his hometown. “In Ohio, we've lost 600,000 jobs in the last 10 years and 400,000 jobs in the last four years. A third of our college students leave after three years. The city of Cincinnati, you are going be to stunned when I tell you this, has lost 40 percent of its population since 1950, and Youngstown and Cleveland lost half of their population since 1950, and a lot of our job creators leave Ohio because they are looking to get lower costs. My proposed bill will set a stage, Sean, for entrepreneurship, risk taking and most important job creation.” You c an watch Sean’s entire interview with Gov. Kasich by clicking here.
