James Lansberry and John Ziegler on PPR

The threat of Socialized Medicine looms in the air. Experts are saying that Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid could be bankrupt by the time most of us reach retirement age. President Barack Obama has proclaimed that single payer (aka Socialized Medicine) healthcare is the only way to save the system, when in reality, according to James Lansberry, the solution to lowering healthcare costs is already here - without government aid, and without expensive health insurance.

James Lansberry, president of the Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries, will be joining Political Pistachio Radio tonight to discuss the extremely successful "Shared Care" systems across the country that people are already using successfully for just pennies on the dollar, compared to traditional insurance companies and government health providers.

John Ziegler is a veteran of the information media. He began as a television sportscaster, has been the author of a number of books, and then decided to try to benefit from his controversial nature by going into talk radio. He quickly moved up the ranks in radio, and moved on to television where he won a regional Emmy.

In 2002, Ziegler returned to radio as the host of the mid-morning SHOW on the legendary 84WHAS in Louisville, Ky. His show was heard weekdays from 9 am-noon and quickly became the highest rated program in its time slot. John also co-hosted a successful prime-time TV show called "Yarmuth & Ziegler" on the NBC affiliate in Louisville. John Yarmuth is now the Congressman from Louisville, while, thanks to an extremely high-profile firing, John Ziegler is only allowed back in the city on special occasions.

I know him best as a KFI 640-AM in Los Angeles host on a late evening show. That show on KFI began on January 12th, 2004. John's rating success in the 10 pm slot earned him a promotion to the 7 pm shift in February of 2005.

In 2005, John authored the book "The Death of Free Speech."

In 2006, John was given national credit for "breaking" the John Kerry "Stuck in Iraq" story that ended his 2008 Presidential hopes.

In 2007, John was named the 54th most important talk host in the country by Talkers Magazine. At the end of that year KFI and John Ziegler mutually decided to not renew his contract.

In 2008, John Ziegler wrote, directed and produced the documentary "Blocking the Path to 9/11" and created as a precursor to his next film, "Media Malpractice... How Obama Got Elected."

Tonight John Ziegler joins Political Pistachio Radio during the second hour of the program to discuss his documentary, and Katie Couric's award she is receiving for her shameful interview of Sarah Palin during the campaign. The Program begins at 7 pm Pacific Time HERE.
