It's time again to answer questions from you, my vigilant fans! Got a question for the Governor? Sound off at Ora.tv/OffTheGrid.
Michael Olsen from Illinois asks: Obama wants to bring in 'Syrian Refugees'. Some strongly doubt that they are just Syrian Refugees, and are instead being used for an invasion. Which would be a serious threat to all of us. So, I had to ask you. What are your thoughts on this matter?
I don’t quite agree that refugees are coming here for an invasion. The ones I’ve seen on TV hardly look like an invasion force. They look like women, children and elderly people fleeing from a war-torn area for the safety and sake of their own lives.
Are there one or two terrorists among these thousands upon thousands? I suppose there would have to be. But for the most part, they don’t look like an invading force to me. They look like a bunch of women, children and old people trying to escape for their lives.
Bob Hoffman from PA/USA writes: After watching all the 9/11 segments on your show I am wondering if it is possible or even probable that Osama bin Laden was a CIA operative?
It could very well be probable. I’ve seen pictures of Osama bin Laden with Zenabou Brzezinski, the head of our Department of Defense, 20 or 40 years ago.
You have to remember, we fought with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan against the Russians. And that was the CIA, so I don’t put anything past the clandestine operators of this country. They’ve jumped in bed with the Mafia to try to kill Fidel Castro. The CIA has strange bedfellows internationally.
So I don’t think it’s laughable or out of the question that at one time or another, bin Laden may have been CIA for all we know.
Luke Kollar from Illinois asks: Why do we as a nation not provide a college education? College grads make more money and pay more taxes, wouldn't that please Uncle Sam?
Yes it would! But if you listen to my guest, Mike Rowe, there aren’t any jobs out there for the college-educated. According to Mike, the jobs are in the service industry, a backbreaking occupation. You really have to do something like know a trade, such as being a welder or being whatever else you may be. That’s where the jobs are according to Mike Rowe and I don’t think he’s a bullshitter. I think he knows what he’s talking about. So you can go to college and get all the degrees you want in the world. But if there’s not a job out there in that degree, what good is the degree?
