The personal challenges that exist... dealing with labels and stigmas, finding the strength to deal with their own inner-demons while having to cope with other people's "demons" and sterotypes as well.

Society is like a bad drug. We know that the issues that societies presents is nonprogressive and bad for us but we refuse to give it up. We are content with the undue homelessness, the unnecessary billing, and bullying in the guise of protective services. We must be satisfied, because we have yet to quit. What is holding us back from getting out of the illusionary world wrought with problems? Is it fear of the unknown? Is it comfort and luxury? Or is it something even greater psychologically? Are we ADDICTED TO THE MATRIX? Next 2RAW4TV we talk about how to break the cycle of subconscious addiction and show a different route out of the societal web of destruction.

Your teenager is failing school because he is drinking and doing drugs. Actually, he may be abusing drugs and drinking because he is failing school. The reason he is failing in school is because he has learning disabilities that no one recognizes. In order for his addiction treatment to be successful, it must address both his substance abuse and learning disabilities.Some promising studies indicate that teenagers with undiagnosed learning disabilities drink or abuse drugs because they are depressed, lonely, and suffer from low self-esteem. Low self-esteem is often a result of being unable to make friends and academic failure: problems that result from undiagnosed learning disabilities. Learning disabilities are neurological disorders that often run in families. According to the National Institute of Health, about one in five people has at least one learning disability that may make it difficult to learn to read or do mathematics. Attention Deficit-Disorder, autism, mental retardation, and conduct disorders are not learning disabilities.Often people with learning disabilities take in and process information differently than those without such disabilities. It can be hard for them to understand language easily or to organize their thoughts or their work. They may have trouble reading social cues and making friends.Teenagers who understand that they have a learning disability and who are able to succeed in certain areas are less likely to become alcoholics or drug abusers. The teens at risk are the ones who do not understand how their learning disabilities are affecting their lives. Dr. Merith Cosden believes that drugs and alcohol can become a way for those with learning disabilities to self-medicate for depression and loneliness.

Last week we started some asset mapping of brick and mortar in America’s birthplace. We’ve been looking for ways to sustain community building efforts and reverse what the president termed, a “gulf of mistrust.” Whether or not you agree, bridging that gulf of mistrust and ENGAGING historically disadvantaged Americans is going to take a little more money reinvested where you live, learn, work and worship. This week, your American Mentors are in Philadelphia hoping to re-point us to some goals and achievements for ONE NATION UNDER GOD. One of those goals is to ensure ALL youth are safe from violent crime. It is coincidentally, one of the goals of the President’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative. We’ll be taking a look from an economic security lens, so fasten your seatbelt as we embark on a TIMELINE TOECONOMIC INCLUSION.

An indepth discussion on the imminent economic collapse of Western currencies, Western money markets, Western culture, and the Western world and what that means for you and your families.
Today's show includes many commentaries on current events. Mostly I settle the discussions and hyperbole concerning Obama's recent executive action on immigration. All that Obama has done is invoke his own prosecutorial discretion which he himself removed years ago resulting in 2 million deportations of parents that had minor American children and some that were veterans and others who had done nothing else wrong. He does not deserve applause but on the same token the Republicans are spewing nothing but hyperbole and propaganda. There is NO amnesty and Obama has done nothing illegal in this case. He's done almost nothing except lie about his actions in this matter. Later in the show I discuss my worries about the coming global economic recession and wonder why none of the major news sources are discussing it. All of Europe is in recession or worse and now, Germany, the manufacturing and economic powerhouse of Europe faces recession as well as England and France. Now, we get word that Japan is now in a "...sharp recession." We know that America's economy has been growing but has been very anemic in that growth and explain why and blame Obama and the Democrats for their many failings and warn that if since those major economic forces in the world begin to falter so too will America's weak economy. I warn Latinos to begin saving vigorously because Latinos will be the most affected in America. Lastly, I talk about Obama's withdrawal of American leadership in the world and how it has encouraged Russia and China. I read a news piece indicating that China is threatening its neighbors in the South China Sea and remind my listeners that I reported two weeks ago that Sec. John Kerry already advised the Chinese that the US would not take a position on such a matter which is also a withdrawal of American leadership.
