SORT BY Relevancy
On the September 3, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Several celebrities have had nudes of them released that were obtained by people hacking their accounts. Some people are suggesting that keeping your pictures in "the cloud" is not a safe way to store such pictures and that such people are just "asking for it". Others suggest that taking such pictures altogether are them asking for it. Others see hypocrisy in the treatment of female celebrities and male celebrities. I will cut through the hype and give my feelings on why some scenarios are different than the others and also explain why some of this blame being placed on the persons who took those pictures is just another example of victim blaming. Victim blaming just victimizes the victim.
More victim blaming comes at the hands of Cee Lo Green. After being accused of raping a person who was drugged, he had the gaul to suggest that sex with an unconcious person is not rape. Seriously. Forget you...
Another example where a victim is again victimized is the case of Nick Olivas, a male in Arizona who at 15 had non consensual (read rape) sexual relations with a 20 year old woman. As a 15 year old he could not consent to sex with the 20 year old but yet he is financially responsible for it? That makes zero sense.
Finally, I will discuss the ruling in Louisiana today that upheld the Louisiana ban on same sex marriage. Again, Louisiana bucks national trends to the detrement of its citizenry. Louisiana will eventually be forced to recognize marriage equality, but it will be dragged there kicking and screaming.
Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week and more at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.

It’s so easy to blame the outside world for what is happening to us rather than taking personal responsibility for our part in what’s unfolding or what is. We break our leg and it’s the rough terrain’s fault. We lose our keys and someone moved them from where we left them. We’re late for a meeting and the cat threw up just as we were getting ready to leave the house. When confronted do we defend ourselves and our actions or look for our part? Blaming and fault-finding as opposed to taking personal responsibility pervade virtually every area of our lives. It has become an epidemic! If we want to feel good about ourselves, we need to take responsibility for our actions, our words, our thoughts, our emotions, our choices, our parenting, our popularity… It’s easy to blame a parent or our childhood for why we do or did what we did, but it misses the point. It’s not about pinpointing who is at fault. It’s about recognizing that the buck stops here!

If America is alone, is it therefore in the wrong? Only when Barack Obama isn't running it; Barack Obama shuns our friends and courts our enemies - everywhere; Absurd spending priorities — not budget cuts — caused the feds to drop the ball on ebola; The Obama Regime marshals its military might against the Grays, Godzilla, Kaijus, Mimics, climate change, and other mythical threats; and 81% of Americans believe that Barack Obama lies to them at least 'now and then' on 'important matters.'” Is that "stunning"? Hell, that's bending over backwards to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Join My Rays of Light Radio, with LM Young and Nadiyah, Tuesday at 10pm EST; for "MROL presents Let's Talk".
So much has been going on in our world lately, and we would be remiss not to talk about the Bill Cosby scandal...fact or fiction?
With so many women coming forward, at this point, can we still assume that the allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior are untrue?
Are we blaming the victims, yet again, or are the allegations false?
Where do you stand on this issue?
We would love to hear from you

What is FAITH? It is by no means trust in the many contentious and far less than honorable misrepresentations which seem wise among the nations! Many are the diversely partial polluted forms of doctrine that divided us under MISallegiances among the nations. Despite all theinternational compromise that in diaspora has provocatively divided our people, YAH requires a PEOPLE perfected according to ALL HIS PERFECT WILL! (Yacob/ James 1:1-9>-17) Whether or not men will believe the BLESSED TRUTH that ALL the RULERS of the earth have denied will decide the fate of every soul. That very TRUTH that will be the HEALING of our people is being revealed among us even NOW. Many will blame the LIARS among us for mankind's continual fall from the glory. And surely that blame is just. Still, we must overcome the marks of the beasts. We are all obligated to seek the greater even long hidden truths long disregarded that we love one another. Because we were warned that SALVATION is NOT after trust in ay of the diverse partialities of MEN, there will be NO EXCUSE for them who do not believe when is fully realized among men the RETURN of the TRUTH! Messiah said, "If you love Me, keep My commandments! And THEN I will reveal myself unto you! Many are prideful, but without a great reverence for the exceeding knowledge of the truth, no one is counted stable before YAH! Pray to be worthy of the exceeding inspiration that will stand before the Son of Man!
