    The ANDREA SHEA KING Show - Don Nielsen, No Child Left Behind

    in Politics Conservative

    House Education and Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) predicts Congress will act quickly to dismantle the Bush "No Child Left Behind" law (that dictates from the federal level how students and schools are evaluated) and transfer education decision-making to states and local school districts. 


    Don Nielsen, former Seattle School Board President and Sr. Discovery Institute Fellow, plans to be involved. Tonight he joins us to explain why.  His new book asks "State Leaders - Do You Have the Guts to Fix Our Schools?"


    And, Daniel Greenfield -- The "Sultan Knish" says 60's folk singer Arlo Guthrie's world at Alice Restaurant is no longer. In fact, the hippie counterculture of the sixties have now become Officer Obie.  I'll explain.

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/ Don Durant

    in Writing

    Our Broadcast today will be live at the Protest March at Parking Lot 1. We are at the corner of Washington and Front Streets, with Councilwoman Goosby, and many others standing for what is right.  The Developers are planning to break ground beginning here in this parking area, and many residents are coming out to speak out against it. The Overcrowded schools with 60 students per class, and the imposition of a new 336 unit apartment building a block away will only detract from the education of our students.  Join us live on the phone at 10:30 am 718-305-6322  or click on and hear the voices of those in protest.(blogtalkradio.com /don-durant)

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/Don Durant

    in Writing

    Our Broadcast today will focus on the so-called redevelopment of communities.  We have seen it in Harlem, and we have seen it in Downtown Brooklyn. We saw it in Detroit, and in Philadeplhia, as well as Camden, New Jersey.  How little concern there is for the established residents of a community in order to force them out and raise the prices to bring others in.   Join us on the phone while we are live on air: 718-305-6322  or click on blogtalkradio .com/don-durant...

    The Don S. McClure Show Live- LIFE DESIRES


    Our Topic for tonight:  Life Desires:


    George Eliot, the well-known novelist quoted, “It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.”  As they say, it is never too late to make wishes! So, never stop making wishes! As humans, we understand and appreciate things better than the other beings and whenever we see something beautiful and captivating, we desire to possess it. It is a natural feeling of want, which is what we call a ‘wish’. From children to adults, everyone has wishes. Kids are taught to ‘make a wish’.


     It is a very positive feeling that they get when they make a wish. It’s like elation if your wish comes true.


    Wishes may be small or enormous, one that lasts for a few minutes or one that we want with us forever; they may be realistic or they may be far-fetched fantasies! Whatever it is, wishes and aspirations are the ones that keeps humans going! For instance, you work because you wish to earn for a better living. Everyone has aspirations in life. They give the meaning and purpose to our life. Achieving what we wish for, and getting ultimate happiness therein, is what life is all about.
