Lars got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather (twice an hour) on KTIL (The Mighty 1590) from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon (75 miles West of Portland, Oregon).
36 years later, he’s only moved 75 miles east to Portland and light years to “the Right”. Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson brings nearly four decades of experience as a radio and television journalist to the microphone for six hours of the best talk radio in America. Six hours of daily prep keep The Lars Larson Show on top of the news and top-of-mind for listeners across the country.
Along the way, Lars has worked for more than a dozen radio stations and five television stations. Today, Lars holds down the fort from 12pm – 4pm on Radio Northwest flagship FM NEWS 101 KXL. His local talk show airs on seventeen stations in the Pacific Northwest (and earns him the biggest local talk radio audience in the region).

"On September the eleventh, enemies of freedom committed an act of war against our country. Americans have known wars but for the past 136 years, they have been wars on foreign soil, except for one Sunday in 1941. Americans have known the casualties of war but not at the center of a great city on a peaceful morning. Americans have known surprise attacks but never before on thousands of civilians. All of this was brought upon us in a single day and night fell on a different world, a world where freedom itself is under attack....
We are not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen their kind before. They are the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions - by abandoning every value except the will to power - they follow in the path of fascism, and Nazism, and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way, to where it ends: in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies....
The course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them. This is not, however, just America's fight. And what is at stake is not just America's freedom. This is the world's fight. This is civilization's fight. This is the fight of all who believe in progress and pluralism, tolerance and freedom....
Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom - the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time - now depends on us. Our nation - this generation - will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause, by our efforts and by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail... I will not forget this wound to our country, or those who inflicted it. I will not yield - I will not rest - I will not relent in waging this struggle for the freedom and security of the American people."
-President George W. Bush
Please say a prayer for those who have lost their lives, for those who were hurt, for those who helped save lives, and for those who continue to save lives and protect our American rights and freedoms.
I'll do the same.
Down in Corvallis, the Chinese government is asking the city to silence one of it's residents.
The best part, is that Corvallis is standing behind it's resident.
Here is an excerpt from the Corvallis Gazette-Times:

I can't say enough about what the city of Corvallis is doing. Standing behind your residents, and our constitution, even in the face of threats from one of the world's biggest governments, is exactly what we should expect here in America.
David Lin joined me today on the Northwest Show to talk about the controversy that his mural has caused.
What about a rapist?
Keep this in mind as I explain this. Oregon is considering a plan to release inmates that they consider "low risk," in order to save the corrections department some money.
Now you may be asking yourself, how do they determine who is low risk, and who isn't?
The answer isn't that simple. I had a chance to talk with John Foote, Clackamas County District Attorney, about this situation, and some of the surprising people that make the low risk list...
The American public found out God and Jerusalem had been removed from the platform and democrats sensed trouble. So yesterday, they took the unusual step of suspending the rules of the convention by a two thirds vote. Then the former governor of Ohio stood up and proposed putting God and Jerusalem back in the platform.
Good so far.
Convention chair Antonio Villagirosa called for a two thirds vote to okay the change. Ayes and Nays were shouted but clearly it wasn’t two thirds. So Villagirosa called for a second vote. Same result. And a third vote. At that point, the democrats faced the prospect of headlines that would read “Democrats vote God out of platform”.
So in the face of a vote that clearly wasn’t two thirds approval of the change, Villagirosa simply declared the changed approved. Shouts and boos followed. But that’s the way democrat style democracy works…you count till you get the result you want. And if you lose, simply declare victory and march off the field.
Stand proud American Democrats…your delegates tried their best to vote God out.
It was painful but I couldn’t resist watching the Democrat convention last night…just to see what they have in mind for us if the Marxist gets another four years. They opened the Lib fest with a video that explained that government is good “because it’s the only thing we all belong to”. ‘Scuse me but the Declaration of independence was written by men who were tired of being treated like property by a King.
All the President’s men showed up on the Sunday discussion shows and were asked one simple question that they should have been ready for: ”Are Americans better off than they were four years ago?”
They stammered and stuttered and tried to change the subject…unable to say “yes, you’re better off.” But in most cases unable to say “no,” Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland finally said “no, but that’s not the question we should be asking.”
As a matter of fact, for most Americans it’s the ONLY question. And Obama himself told us three years ago, that if he didn’t have the jobs problem fixed in three years, then his should be a one term Presidency.
The President claims to have created four million jobs, but the net score is what’s important.
Today, the number of Americans is millions smaller than it was the day Obama took office. Americans have lost much of their wealth. If they are working their wages are lower on average. And no, we’re not better off than we were four years ago.
But it should be fun watching the Democrats in Charlotte trying to spin it that way...
