“YOUR WEEKEND SHOW” is the culmination of a dream Bob Biermann had in the mid-1980s when he first realized the world-wide impact of International Shortwave radio.

Are you “ESSENTIAL,” Or are you “NON-ESSENTIAL?” Do you even matter anymore?

During these past few months, the terms “essential” and “non-essential” have been a rallying cry, and a source of pain and suffering for many. Faceless bureaucrats, elected politicians, and health officials (All of whom are considered essential and getting their full paycheck and benefits!) Have decided who can make a living, and who should lose their jobs, their life savings, and their businesses. When this is over, many may even lose their homes. All these mandates were made while claiming it is “for your safety” though millions of families are being ruined.

Bob takes this weekend’s program to look at the facts as we see them coming together now, and wonders if the cure will be more devastating than the disease we claim to be fighting. While many can survive these government lockdowns, shutdowns, and furloughs, many people simply cannot, and will not. Many will face financial ruin, substance abuse from depression, along with broken homes and shattered hopes dreams. In time it is inevitable that suicide will spike. Are these people lives and livelihoods less important than a politician? Do these hurting people’s lives even matter to the politicians and bureaucrats? Even more despicable, are some politicians using this “Pandemic” more as a “Plan-demic” for political gain at people’s expense?

Bob analyses where we are today and starts a series on what we must do next to survive. Remember, to God, all His children are “essential.”
