    How qualified is Ben Carson to become POTUS???

    in Politics Conservative

    Ben Carson has come under fire for comments he has made regarding the Pyramids, his childhood, etc which has brought up the conversation whether or not he has what it takes to become the next President of the United States.  People are suggesting his lack of holding a political office means he doesn't understand what it takes to become President.  If memory serves me, President Obama was a junior senator before he became president.  What other experience did he have other than being a community organizer? If a community organizer can become president then why not an accomplished neurosurgeon.  President Obama didn't have any real ideas to move the economy forward, no foreign policy experience dealing with Islamic terrorist, no energy policy to help the United States to become energy independent and definitely no way of bridging the "income inequality" gap.  We will also look at the GOP debate and I have to wrap up some comments on the last episode "When is a child not a child"

    Interview with Saxophonist/Recording Artist Gary Palmer

    in Music

    Passionate about the saxophone since he was a kid growing up in New York City, Gary Palmer frequently turned to the horn as an outlet and stress reliever during his many years as a law enforcement official. In addition to playing it to change the trajectories of difficult workdays, he always had contemporary/smooth jazz on the radio, calming him and helping him focus even when he was on high stress stakeouts with the Lauderhill Police Department and Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Lauderdale, Fl. – retiring in 2010. Now, with the release of the multi-talented musician and performer’s highly anticipated smooth/urban jazz debut Love Me Again, Palmer is the one helping others chill via his cool, catchy melodies, old school production vibe, tropical flavors and easy funk grooves.

    Like many musicians who set their dreams aside for ‘straight careers,’ Palmer began making up for lost time after he retired from the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Just as he was becoming immersed in the writing and recording of the album, he returned to the Broward Sheriff’s Office – where he originally began serving in the early 80s – to become the Colonel of the Department of Detention and Community Programs. Palmer has found exciting ways to merge his two worlds, performing events for the Florida Sheriff’s Association, the Ft. Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, the Lauderhill Chamber of Commerce and other civic functions. In addition to these gigs with his regular band (known as Gary Palmer and the GP Project, the saxophonist has created a side band comprised of colleagues of his at the Sheriff’s Office. They meet every Tuesday for two hours to work on cover songs and new material, and also perform regularly throughout the community.

    Kareem Says Ben Carson is Terrible for Black Americans

    in Politics Conservative

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has generally been regarded as a serious-thinking man when it comes to social issues. Then TIME magazine gave him an op ed column, and he proved to be just another clueless liberal. HIs latest column has the unmitigated gall to say that Dr. Ben Carson would be "terrible for black Americans." Really? Seems that no one could be worse for black Americans than Barack Obama and his devastating leftist policies. Kareem also claims that Carson's reluctance to accept the climate change orthodoxy is proof that he would be a bad president. This is too juicy. We will discuss from all angles.

    Hard Starboard Radio: The Political Deflowering Of Ben Carson

    in Politics Conservative

    American "Reform" Jews embrace "transgenderism," are in desperate need of reform; Louisiana reaps the whirlwind of Republican fratricide; Is Obama ending his war against Israel?; Ben Carson learns the joys of frontrunnership; The White House offers Obama visit to boost ObamaCare enrollment; Obama formally kills the Keystone XL pipeline he killed a long, long time ago; and who knows what else?  Certainly not me.

    Birgit Fladager brings political trials to court and fails to prosecute legitimate crime.

    For example, there are 58 unsolved cold murder cases in Stanislaus County.

    The Dist. Atty.'s office has 14 deputy investigatorsbut obviously not enough attorneys.

    While these investigators conduct SWAT team raids and create fairytale cases against selected individuals the community remains at risk.

    The nine defendants arrested in the alleged murder of a tweeker called Korey Kaufman are innocent and the DA's office is becoming aware

    that they can't win.

    Showdown on Syrian immigration; Christians speak up; Trump, Carson in trouble?

    in Politics Conservative


    This weekend's Paris attack by ISIS terrorists prove terroism is not under control. Could the terror attacks become a major setback for Donald Trump and Ben Carson? Over thirty States are on record saying "NO!" to having Syrian refugees brought into their States. As many fear terrorists may be among the refugees Christian groups are pleading to allow the refugees into the country. President Obama seems to believe the current strategy in dealing with the ISIS/ISIL situation is working. Terrorism truly does have many faces.

    Another GOP Debate and the Rise of Ben Carson

    in Politics Progressive

    Another week, another GOP debate tonight in Colorado - and the Republicans have a new front-runner: Dr. Ben Carson, whose mild-mannered demeanor distracts listeners from all the whack-a-doo theories and policy positions he seems to believe in. Or maybe that's what they like about him. At any rate, pundits are predicting that this debate could make or break Jeb Bush, who still leads the field with PAC money but is apparently struggling to pay his campaign staff. Pass the popcorn.

    In the meantime on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is still enjoying a very excellent October, Bernie Sanders is still in the game, and Martin O'Malley is hoping to reap the benefits of Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee dropping out of the race.

    In other news: John Boehner is getting out of Dodge while Paul Ryan is poised to become the next Speaker of the House. We predict very little changes there, except the so-called Freedom Caucus will likely make getting things done even tougher. MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss politics from a progressive point of view.
