    The Coal Miner

    in Politics

    The nation pledged to the coal miners’ union in 1946 that, in exchange for their dangerous but critical work, miners’ pensions and health care would always be secure. Letting the UMWA pension fund collapse would be foolhardy as well as inhumane, costing taxpayers more in the long run while also endangering the government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.But the UMWA endorsed McConnell’s Democratic opponent in 2014; non-union coal companies, such as Joe Craft’s Alliance Resource Partners, are thought to oppose the measure.In this season of giving, McConnell naturally wants to thank Craft for the millions of dollars he’s given Republican candidates and committees. But McConnell should find a way that does not deprive retired miners and their widows of benefits they were promised and earned..kentucky.com Lexington Herald Leader

    Feb. 9, 2016, 10pm (PST) - The Ghosts of Virginia City with Debbie Bender

    in Paranormal

    Virginia City was a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, and numerous mines were opened. At the city's peak of population in the mid-1870s, it had an estimated 25,000 residents. The mines' output declined after 1878, and the city declined.


     


    However, many in the now historic town say, some of the residents have never left. And as this ghost town has become more of a tourist attraction, one of the attractions the town now offers is ghost tours. Paranormal investigators from all over the world come to the Nevada playground to find who's still hanging out in the saloon or sleeping in the old hotel.


     


    Debbie Bender is part of the team that runs the Virginia City Ghost Tours. The stories and experiences she has from this old mining community are eerie, intriguing and mystifying all at once. You can find them at www.virginiacityghosttours.com. Debi will explain the history of the town from then, until now. We'll talk about who's still wandering around. And how ghost hunting has brought new 'life' to an aged community.

    Who's Talking to Black Folks This Campaign Season???

    in News

    Black family. Election season is upon us and as candidate after candidate jockey for or presumed voting power one thing remains evident, the politicians of today aren't speaking to us! They talk at us. They talk over us but none are talking TO us. We are being told what to believe, who to trust, who to vote for, what is priority in our lives and what is not. We are not being asked directly what matters to us and being provided an answer with accountability measures in place. 

    Hillary Clinton, wife of what many blacks like to deem the First black president Bill Clinton, is making a second run for the presidential seat. The same woman who's brother sits on the board of the VCS Mining Company currently attempting to extract Haiti's gold deposits but has no mining experience. Black family, listen closely. If Haiti is sitting on gold and oil deposits why is a foreign, American/European extension on our family's land stealing their resources? Black woman. We know how much you love to look your best. Imagine you're in the shower or in bed and a guest you opened your doors to ends up stealing all your jewelry and accessories while at the same time leaving a meal on the table for you. How would you react? 
    Hillary Clinton, the same woman that supported Bill destroying Black and Brown families all across America with the 3 strikes rule. They admitted that the policy was detrimental to our communities. They admitted the errors in the implementation of that policy. 


    The same woman, who's husband convinced the Haitian people to stop growing their own rice and to purchase rice imports as an alternative. Again, after the fact, they admitted it was the wrong decision to force the Haitian people to make. Democrats in general are killing the Black community seducing us into being dependent on government assistance and subsidies instead of encouraging self sufficiency and independence.

    Carter G. Woodson and the History of Black History Month

    in Culture

    Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.

    Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson.[5] His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.


    Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.


    In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.

    Believe it or Not: These Things are Here

    in Christianity

    Welcome to our new time 8pm EST 5pm PST, on our new day, Thursday. Before we pick back up on where we left of with our series “Destroying the Image of God”, we’ll be updating you on a few things that we’ve discovered over the past few weeks. Some things might be unbelievable, but in this day and age that we live in, many things that were thought impossible are now becoming reality. How near are we to having genetically modified babies? This has been in news reports for some time now. While man is looking to perfect himself, the world is still slipping into darkness. So things aren’t getting better. Our information is also being farmed by many entities. Have you ever wondered how Netflix uses your data? Are you concerned with all of the data breaches going on more frequently? Brain Chips anyone? We’ll talk about this and more tonight with Chris & Rory.
