The Rundown - Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - Michelle Malkin on women in the workplace; Trump tax plan; Enviros gone wild; Developing self-driving cars using a popular video game

Our special guest at 8:06 AM: Michelle Malkin, nationally syndicated columnist and host of Michelle Malkin Investigates, at CRTV.com.

Michelle has written a short manifesto to women who are sexually harassed in the work place, and I think it's right on target but really I'll leave final judgment to women:http://michellemalkin.com/2017/04/25/malkin-manifesto-straight-talk-about-women-and-the-workplace/

 

President Trump's tax plan will be released on Wednesday. Reportedly it will call for lowering the corporate tax rate and dramatically increasing the standard deductions for individuals. People on both sides of the aisle will complain about blowing up the deficit, which will partly be true but largely miss the point that the measure of an overly burdensome gov't is spending, not the deficit. We'll talk about that a lot during Wednesday's show.

At 7:36, our guest will be Dan Haley, CEO of the Colorado Oil and Gas Association, to discuss this:

The Boulder Daily Camera received, published, and then edited a letter to the editor from an anti-fracking rabid-environmentalist lunatic: http://www.dailycamera.com/letters/ci_30930903/andrew-j-oconnor-moral-responsibility-fight-fracking

Go ahead and read it, paying close attention to the last sentence, and then read what the original last sentence was, and remember that the Daily Camera actually published it online:
"If the oil and gas industry puts fracking wells in our neighborhoods,  threatening our lives and our children's lives, then don't we have a  moral responsibility to blow up wells and eliminate  fracking and workers?"

Ummm....no?

I probably spend more time than the average radio show host talking about driverless cars because I think almost everybody (not including the Cato Institute's Randal O'Toole, whom I had a great conversation with about autonomous vehicles) underestimates how much they'll change the world.

I read a fascinating article by Bloomberg News (and published in the Denver Post) about how engineers are using clever ways to design and test the vehicles and their software without having to actually travel the millions or billions of road miles that might be necessary if there were no other great testing environments. Turns out that a great tool for the engineers is one of the most popular (and, I think fairly repugnant) video games, Grand Theft Auto, particularly version V of the game.

At 6:36 we'll talk with Alain Kornhauser, a Princeton professor of Operations Research & Financial Engineering and the faculty chair of Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (PAVE) about self-driving vehicles as well as developments in "navigation-based commerce and entertainment" which is part of his teaching curriculum. Doesn't this sound like a course you'd want to take?!?
