A Man’s Home Is His Castle.
It’s true that a man’s home is his castle but these days it seems that’s about all a man has. “For most middle class families, most of their wealth are tied up in their homes,” began Hannity, “People are paying more on their mortgage than the home is worth.” Sean later said, “I remember my mother talking about the Great Depression as ‘desperate times’ and that’s what we’re going to have if we continue down this path.” With recent reports noting that home values have fallen dramatically since 2009, many Americans are finding their main source of wealth depleting fast. On top of employment close to 10 percent, it’s clear that we need Washington to do something radically different. For more on housing prices, click here.
Sean spent some time this afternoon addressing the recent scandal that’s hit New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. Accusations arouse this weekend that Anthony Weiner tweeted lewd pictures to a young girl on his account. Though the Congressman is insisting that his account was hacked into, Sean is pursuing the story. “This is a bizarre story,” laughed Sean, “There are just a lot of odd elements and I’m taking his word that this is nothing.” Congressman Weiner has refused to talk more about this telling reporter, “I’m not going to allow this to be what I talk about all week.” You can read more about this story here.
Michael Ghouse and David Horowitz Debate
Sean was joined by Michael Ghouse and David Horowitz to discuss the future of the Middle East. CNN reported today that senior Egyptian military officials administered virginity tests to female Egyptian protestors during demonstrations this past spring. “It’s time for people to say I was right,” demanded Hannity, “While journalists were being punched people were saying this was a democracy movement but it wasn’t.” Ghouse quickly disagreed,” This is a democracy movement facing difficulties now and these acts were ridiculous and shameful and the world needs to tell these people to stop.” Horowitz added, “The most interesting thing about this order is what the General said and that was that he wanted to test to make sure these women were virgins in order to make sure they wouldn’t claim the police had raped them.” It’s not clear whether democracy is taking root in the Middle East but with actions like the ones that took place in Egypt, it doesn’t appear to be a fast growing process.
