This week’s Ring of Fire Radio, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and David Bender:  Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

This week on Ring of Fire Radio, author Andrew Bacevich will be here to tell us why the US must shift resources away from the military and stop acting like the world’s police officer, in order to help solve the major problems facing us in our own country. 

On the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, will enter the Ring to discuss the dangerous rise of religious intolerance in America.

Blogger Chauncey DeVega will be here to talk about some of the biggest threats posed by Glenn Beck, including the fact that he’s convinced his less than intelligent followers that they are, in fact, some of the brightest people on the planet. 

And political satirist Matt Filipowicz will be here to run through some of the most ridiculous news stories from the last week, including the ongoing gibberish from the Right about the need for “trickle down economics.”
