Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of June 24, 2019.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am. I join Michael each week on Tuesday’s show, from 6:20-7am, for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues.
This week’s podcast is a bit of a wild one. Before turning to the Top 3, we start with a discussion of the Legislative “leadership’s” decision to reject the Governor’s call for the special session to be held in Wasilla — an issue that arose Monday (at 1:55).
Once we exhaust that topic we then turn to these: 1) vetoes are coming, but they will still leave a deficit; we discuss who will pay the taxes necessary to cover those (15:32); 2) we discuss the fake news Alaska public media spread last week about the PFD (21:45), and 3) we explain why the University is failing to respond to fiscal reality (29:00).
The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
