Conversation With A Conservative: Arts Express takes a sharp right this week, with a stop over in Tampa, Florida to debate conservative commentator Les Rayburn. Or is he? Part Joe The Plummer, part Tea Party enthusiast, the veteran of both Vietnam and Iraq may actually be unleashing his inner leftie. As Rayburn rants against new CIA domestic espionage spyware tactics in progress, while shedding light on how working people sometimes act against their own class interests. Along with the contradictions between Rayburn's fierce patriotism and the post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from 'doing a lot of things that human beings don't - and it eats at you.'
