SORT BY Relevancy
The New York Times reported today that the Senate has faulted the CIA over extenisve brutality used to interrogate prisoners for information. Have they gone to far? What does this say about the governemnet as a whole? Are there any considerations of oversight necessary for the amount of current CIA control? How should the CIA and other government agencies responsible for negotiation handle the interrogation of people? We will discuss these questions and more on tonight's episode of The Current Issues Show brought to you by TrueChat Radio.

North Florida’s Mixed-blood Indian People, Rediscovery of a Forgotten People
In the early 1800s, dozens of Siouan-speaking Cheraw families, including Catawbas and Lumbees, fled war and oppression in the Carolinas and migrated to Florida; just as native Appalachicola Creeks were migrating away. Being neither Black nor White, the Cheraw descendants were persecuted by the harsh “racial” dichotomy of the Jim Crow era and almost forgot their proud heritage. Today they have rediscovered their past. This is their story.
Creek Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indians, generally located in the panhandle of Florida. Related groups (Porch Creek, Redbones, Brass Ankles, etc) in which we can establish a surname connection locally or by association later (Mt Tabor Community).
The Apalachicola River Indian Community Conference is a non-profit community-based tribal organization that works for the political, social, legal, and spiritual welfare of the Creek/Eastern Siouan Cheraw Indian people in the panhandle of north Florida. Its focus is to foster tribal cultural identity and unity, documentary historical research into our origins and history, and provide venues for communication, awareness, and growth. We are the descendants of the Indian people who lived in the 3 settlements whose history is documented in the “Our History” part of this website. These are surnames in our community:
Ammons, Ayers, Barnwell, Bass, Bennett, Bird, Blanchard, Boggs, Brown, Bullard, Bunch, Bryant, Brooks, Chason, Chavis, Conyers, Copeland, Davis, Doyle, Goins, Hall, Harris, Hicks, Hill, Holly, Ireland, Jacobs, Johnson, Jones, Kever, Laramore, Linton, Lollie, Lolly, Long, Lovett, Mainer, Martin, Mayo, Moses, Oxendine, Perkins, Porter, Potter, Revell, Rollin, Scott, Simmons, Smith, Stafford, Stephens, Sweat, Thomas, Whitfield, Williams.

Tonight is the Liberal Dan Radio election recap. I will be discussing mostly the big elections in the Senate and some Governors races. I will also briefly discuss some of the Louisiana issues that came up.
Who is at fault for the loss? Was this a referendum on Obama's agenda? Were the Democrats too weak spined? Does it make sense that people voted Republicans into office even though Republicans had a lower approval rating than the President? And what will happen now that the Senate is controlled by the GOP?
Those questions and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.
And if you are listening after the live broadcast and want to comment, please see the show thread at LiberalDan.com.
The Ominous Omnibus bill needed help from Democrats to pass the House .... and it got that help. The Ominous Omnibus bill needed help from the Smurfs again to pass the Senate ..... and it got that help. Now that the Crime-nibus bill has passed what did the battle tell us about the political landscape over the next two years? Why did the Smurfs work SO hared to pass a bill that so many Smurfs say was "heavily tilted" towards the Elmos? ~~~
Also .... there is more on the toruture front as Dick Cheney has chimed in as only Dick Cheney can. ~~~
We will also talk more about oil. As the price of oil plummets below $60/bbl the benefits are obvious, but what of the consequences? ~~~
