    Hard Starboard Radio: The Return Of Preemption

    in Politics Conservative

    The Left’s bullying freak-out over Indiana’s RFRA betrays a compulsive need to feel morally superior to others; Should the government compel the "right" kinds of expression?  Yes!  It!  Should!; Watergate is looking like a third-rate burglary these days, isn't it?; Barack Obama's Iran "deal" in translation; Obama’s stories haven’t held up before. How is the Iran deal any different?; and Obama shows the fallacy of eschewing military force even as a last resort.

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After- Rev Lura Lisa...The Spirituality of Katrina

    in Books

    The entire premise of our show is based upon where all are now after the train wreck of Katrina...10 years ago.   Many have experienced the miracles of destiny....bringing them to new spaces not even imagined before the storm.  Lives have changed...Circumstances have changed and, in the end, we are faced with a different world to which we may have gained comfort within...only to be torn asunder by the game-changer: Hurricane Katrina!


    Life hits us with circumstances that sometimes seem insurmountable.  When a catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, comes and inserts herself into the very essence of our being responding to such is naturally traumatic and devastating.  However, in the end, at least from my experience, all things happen for a reason....and the divinity that has created us as human beings allows us opportunities for growth through such times.


    This radio blog show has always been mostly about the good stuff that has changed human lives as a result of the storm.  Tonight, we will talk about how calamity in our lives can transform us to heights that, perhaps, we never would have imagined otherwise.


    Lura Lisa, a spiritual leader for Unity Association of Churches will join us this evening to give her perspective on the storm as well as to provide inspirational guidance to those folks who have suffered turmoil, PTSD, or other negatives associated with the storm.


    This show will be inspirational to all who have experienced the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.....whether for better and/or worse.  Or frankly the upsets that ocurr in human lives...It doesn't have to be a storm...We all have things that happen outside of ourselves that impact us...Let look at this wit open eyes and open hearts...


    Wishing all well...and bidding you Namaste in your lives...

    To Kill A Mockingbird Weekly Book Discussion

    in Books

    The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of reap and racial inequality.  The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as amoral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers.  One critic explains the novel's impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill A Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of recial heroism" (Wikipedia.org)


    Here is a trailer from the movie To Kill A Mockingbird Trailer


    Trivia about To Kill A Mockingbird

    Books of Excellence with Bonnie Kaye featuring Cary Black and Gretchen Schott

    in Books

    Tonight Bonnie welcomes back author Cary Black, author of “Katrina—A Freight Train Screamin’,” and his lovely wife, Gretchen Schott, who is a musical performer and writer. This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Huricane Katrina, one of the worst hurricanes to ever hit Louisianna destroying lives and homes forever. 


    Katrina—A Freight Train Screamin’ is a most inspirational book to honor those people who rescued others during Hurricane Katrina's destruction ten years ago in some of our Southern states--especially Louisiana. Since Cary was last with us, he met his beautiful wife Gretchen which ironically was through the writing of the book. Cary and Gretchen have become a team not only in marriage, but also in writing, music, and hosting their own radio show. Gretchen and her family were victims of the Hurricane, and tonight we'll hear about the heroism and strength of the people through this crisis.


    Cary and Gretchen have co-authored a children's book about Katrina titled French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl  that we will discuss,

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After - Cary and Gretchen, with Bonnie Kaye

    in Books

    This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I.  Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago.  Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.


    Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing.  Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.


    We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010.  So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.

    Naomi's Daughters "Prepared for a Purpose" with Antoinette Tuff

    in Spirituality

    Next on Naomi's Daughters


    Live broadcast airs Saturday of Feb. 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am EST


    Brought to you by Kingdom United Ministries Network


    www.kingdomcomenet.com  Call (914) 803-4491 and press (1) to speak with our guest 


    On August 2012 our nation was riveted by the excerpts of a 911 emergency call that came from an elementary school in Georgia by their schools bookkeeper.  Now in the presence of an armed man, over 800 occupants in the building, having fired a round of shots and now occupying the office with "Antoinette Tuff", he was prepared to die and take others with him.


    On that day the very mention of "Tuff" took on a persona of which we'd never seen nor heard before.  Her name became synonymous with Courageous, Selflessness and Caring. Heroism arose from a place of rejection, pain and loss also demonstrating to us what the power of God, faith in him and what preparation of our life's experiences can do.


    Join us as we welcome this extraordinary lady "Antoinette Tuff" the author of "Prepared for a Purpose" and founder of "Kids on the Move for Success".  Visit our web page at the Kingdom United Ministries Network site and  share it with others.  You are welcome!

    Music: GREEN DAY "Working Class Hero" (Written by John Lennon)


    As soon as your born they make you feel small
    By giving you no time instead of it all
    Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be


    They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
    They hate if you're clever and they despise a fool
    Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be


    When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
    Then they expect you to pick a career
    When you can't really function you're so full of fear
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be


    Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
    And you think you're so clever and you're classless and free,
    But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see,
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be


    There's room at the top they are telling you still
    But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    If you want to be like all the folks on the hill
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be


    If you want to be a hero, well just follow me
    If you want to be a hero, well just follow me
