SORT BY Relevancy

When you marry, you inherit your spouse family. This includes all the dynamics that comes along with inlaws. Some inlaws are hands off but then there are some inlaws that fully involved in their child marriage. How do you handle meddling inlaws, friends, and extended family?
Where/how do you draw the line between being committed to the "team" (your marriage) and being considerate of others involved? Or once you get married is how THEY feel irrelevant?
In Florida alone, 26 children and teens have been killed in Stand Your Ground cases. Most notably, the cases of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis have caused an uproar across the nation, with their killers using the Stand Your Ground law successfully in defeating murder convictions. While Marissa Alexander, a victim of domestic violence, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot. Marissa is now facing 60 years in prison after her appeal was granted and she was offered a retrial. Is the Stand Your Ground law racially bias? Does it give people a license to kill? Could your son be next? Let's discuss...
As the country reels from the outcome of the Jordan Davis case and national conversations abound on the need to repeal Stand Your Ground laws, the Florida Legislature is steadily working to expand the law. We are left stunned and bewildered as we see ill-conceived bills on the threatened use of force hurtle towards passage with bipartisan support. Over the past two weeks, both houses of the Legislature have voted overwhelmingly to expand Stand Your Ground by approving CS/CS/HB 89 and SB 448, the so-called “Warning Shot Bills.” http://rattlernews.tallahassee.com/article/20140312/OPINION05/303120003/My-View-Don-t-make-bad-Stand-Your-Ground-law-worsehttp://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/criminal-justice/is-there-racial-bias-in-stand-your-ground-laws/ The talk where facts matters
Ever since the murder of Trayvon Martin the night of February 26, 2012, Florida's and every state's "Stand Your Ground Law" has come in to question. There have been some cases where the "Stand Your Ground Law" was properly used. There have been cases where the "Stand Your Ground Law" was improperly used. There have also been cases where the "Stand Your Ground Law" should have been applied, but wasn't. Tune in as Mr. Yancey discusses different cases in which this very controversial law has come in to play. You can call in with your questions and comments at (914)338-0665
In this episode I will discuss the language used in the Florida Statute of self-defense that contains the "Stand Your Ground" section. This was used for the defense of George Zimmerman, for the murder of Trayvon Martin. It is also being used as the "excuse" for the corruption and institutionalized racism of the Florida judicial system. This law was reviewed by the judge in the Zimmerman trial and was found not to apply to Zimmerman! The judge could have thrown the case out before it came to trial if it did apply. The jury should have seen that Zimmerman is a low life killer and convicted him. That is the responsibility of a jury in a criminal case in this country. Using part of this law as an excuse to allow a murderer to go free is criminal!
Scripture Text: Luke 4: 1-15
Key Verses: Luke 4:1-5
And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days He did eat nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward hungered.
And the devil said to Him, If You be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
And the devil, taking Him up into an high mountain, showed to Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

Please join me on Friday night at 8pm EST for a compelling interview with Claudia Ackley. Claudia had a sighting a few months back while hiking with some friends. Claudia's account speaks to a smaller looking creater, with hairy features, dropping out of a tree, and running away on two lets. Although the encounter was over in seconds, Claudia feels very strongly that she saw what appeared to be a baby Sasquatch.
Similar sightings have been reported in the past, which makes me excited to bring this account to you. Hopefully you will enjoy the program. If you have any feedback, hit me up on Bigfoot Ground Zero on FB, or directly at email@example.com. And as always...thanks for listening!
