Sense on Cents 2009 Halls of Fame and Shame

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 4th, 2010 9:47 AM |

For those who missed last evening’s No Quarter Radio’s Sense on Cents with Larry Doyle Hall of Fame and Shame Induction, I am compelled to provide a recap and listing of all those honored or dishonored — depending on one’s perspective. What was the measuring stick to make these assessments? Very simply, the pursuit and promotion of truth, transparency and integrity as we navigate the economic landscape.

Some names you will immediately recognize, others you may not. Additional information about these individuals can be found via the search window (located above the right sidebar) at Sense on Cents. The names appear in no specific order of priority or importance. With no further adieu . . .

Janet Napolitano Should Listen to Larry Johnson

Posted by Larry Doyle on December 29th, 2009 10:46 AM |

The mission of  Sense on Cents is to help people navigate the economic landscape. Proper navigation requires a full understanding of risk. What are the risks in our economy, political process, investments, the world?

Make no mistake, the global risks of terrorism have an enormous impact on our global economy. No individual today understands the risks of terrorism more than my friend Larry Johnson, who runs the political blog No Quarter USA. Larry has appeared on several radio and television news shows over the last couple of days to speak about the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Flight # 253 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

Given Larry’s extensive background in counterterrorism (he was Deputy Director of Counterterrorism for the State Department), I strongly encourage everyone to listen to his comments.

Thank you Larry for providing such expert professional opinions. Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, would do well to follow your lead.

A big thank you to C.S. for putting together the following video clips. The first clip is from Larry Johnson’s appearance on last night’s 7PM broadcast of CNN Tonight:

The next video clips are from Larry Johnson’s appearance on last night’s Larry King Live show.
