    Kristopher H. Bilbrey discusses a busy day in 3 local governments, due to meetings (with 3 local cities/towns holding meetings in the same day). The discussion then moves into remembering the soldiers that landed on the Beaches of Normandy on D-Day on Tuesday, June 6th, 1944. We take a look at the 75th anniversary of that historic day. That is then applied to how we, as citizens today, must approach our interactions with our elected officials. The American Spirit and using the "tools at hand" are discussed as we also hear an example of what can happen if you "fight city hall"! {In memory of the men that gave their lives during Operation Overlord 06.04.44}.

    Kristopher H. Bilbrey discusses the "perceptions" people have about not being able to change local, state or national government and how they are not reality! He examines the self fulfilling prophecies brought on by inaction before taking a walk back through history looking at the Founding Fathers, sometimes referred to as "The Dregs of Society"... they weren't who your elementary books said, they were more normal than that! We also look at another group of heroes thrust into having to decide to take action, or not, and we cover what their vote meant for them and for us... sadly it cost them their lives... but it was on their terms! We then wrap up going over what we can do as the NEW "Dregs of Society"! "Are you ready? Let's Roll!"

    Also, Perception IS Reality welcomes the "Vulgar Poets" (the husband & wife researching, writing & producing team) of Niles & Kate Thornburg... WELCOME ABOARD!
