    "Men Talk Monday" Where Have The Good Men Gone?

    in Relationships

    On all of our measures of marriageability, the ratio favors single women. Only comparisons ofemployed single men to all single women result in a marriage market skewed in favor of men. Admittedly, these ratios may vary by race, location, or other factors.  But if we are worried about the fate of marriage in America, we should not focus exclusively on the economic prospects of men.  Poor economic prospects for women as well as men-- particularly in the wake of the Great Recession— and the growth in children born out of wedlock also contribute to the shrinking population of Americans who are prime candidates for marriage.   


    I have some news that will both surprise and delight you. Want to know where all the quality single men are?  They are everywhere! There are about 45 million single men over the age of 35 in the United States. About 8 million are over 65. There are about 7 million single men in Britain and 2 million in Australia. And those are just the ones using online dating!

    Subtle socialist takeover - Flag Day - Self abortion?

    in Politics

    Hr1  What do you think about Pres. Obama's plan to force diversification in neighborhoods?


    Horace Cooper, Project 21, talking schools, excellence, and black America. Are we really doing kids any favors if they can't read the diploma that you're handing them? Education should challenge kids and prepare them for REAL life.


    He also talks about interactions with police and how to respond to authority. It's a dangerous situation when cops hesitate and our young people don't trust them.


    Hr2  Flag Day tribute! It's not the American Flag itself, it's what our flag represents that matters. Military lives, freedom, and so much more.


    Historians criticize College Board revised AP US history curriculum calling it "fragmentary and misleading."


    Congratulations! Inner city boys make headlines for the right reason! 100% of graduates heading to college! Hard work pays off!


    LGBT students at University of Oklahoma demand separate study area. They're segregating themselves, and will wonder down the road why they're being segregated.


    Hr3  No more marriage for Alabama? Nope. Republicans squelch the bill over concerns with incest and age. Good point.


    LibLogic: Instead of building more desalination plants, California Governor Jerry Brown puts water restrictions on farmers... because we don't need food?


    Texas police shutdown little girls' summer lemonade stand for lack of licensing. How many people used to get sick from the local lemonade stands to warrant police shutdowns &amp; licensing?


    SHOCKING: DIY Abortion tutorial videos target heavily Catholic Chile, because only accidental abortions are not a crime.


    Recapping police tensions and bucking authorities.

    Illicit Sex – Many Faces Of “The Sugar Daddy”

    in Religion

    Shakespeare said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” and the same applies to the term Sugar Daddy.  No matter the term the meaning is still the same.  Traditionally this is a rich usually middle-aged or old man who bestows expensive gifts on a young woman in return for companionship and or sexual favors.  Today, this relationship can be found in other combinations.  Not just a rich old man and a young woman.  The Sugar relationship can be found as a rich older woman and a young man.  In fact, you name the gender combinations and you’ll be able to find a “Sugar Relationship” in the mix somewhere.


    These relationships appear to be mutually beneficial.  Money exchanged for romance and companionship on some level.  But does the benefit carry true substance or is it merely superficial?  Do these relationships cause harm that most people don’t perceive?  In other words what’s so bad about the Sugar Daddy?


    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.
