    I am your Host for the Show.


    Today I am live from the Trump Store at: 725 5th Ae at E 56th Street


    TRUMP TOWER - www.trump.com


    http://www.fodors.com/news/story_5395.html says:


    Trump Tower is a monument to the ostentatious affluence of a classic New York character, Donald Trump. Whether you love him or hate him, it’s worth wandering inside the building’s soaring public atrium to have a look. Completed in 1983, the scene is a freeze-frame of that decade’s shiny excess, with acres of pink and peach marble, hanging gardens, mirrored surfaces, and a huge cascading wall of water. Also keep an eye out for the many bold-faced names who occupy the building’s lavish apartments, including the winners of the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA contests who live here during their year-long reign. The Trump Tower is also home to a television studio where Trump’s reality show The Apprentice is filmed.

    Trump Tower is a 68-story mixed-use skyscraper !

    Is Public Power Right for Bainbridge Island?

    in Energy

    Bainbridge Island citizens have the opportunity to own and control its own nonprofit electric utility, as do more than 50 other Washington communities. Consumer owned utilities, from the City of Blaine to Seattle City Light, provide lower cost, cleaner and more reliable power than Puget Sound Energy (PSE).


    In 2008, Jefferson County (Port Townsend) voted to give electric authority to their public utility district, Jefferson PUD, and buy out PSE.  Today they have their own 100% carbon-free, locally controlled, nonprofit power system.



    Is it possible on Bainbridge Island?
    What are the pros and cons?
    How much will it cost?
    Who will run it?
    What about hydropower and droughts?
    Why not partner with PSE's Green Power initiative?


    Join us as we answer these questions and more with Jane Lindley and Steve Johnson of Island Power.

    Talk Back Tuesday's: Atlanta Public School Scandal!

    in Self Help

    Last Tuesday, eight Atlanta Public Schools employees were sentenced to prison in one of the largest school cheating scandals in American history. The educators were convicted of racketeering — a felony typically reserved for mob bosses, drug kingpins and terrorists.

    While similar scandals have occurred in 39 different states and Washington, D.C., the offenders have rarely been prosecuted as criminals. Yet in an unprecedented move, the prosecutors in Atlanta charged the educators under Georgia's "Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act" — a law passed in 1980 specifically to combat the scourge of organized crime. RICO laws, which EXIST at the federal level and in 33 states, empower prosecutors to go after the leaders of organized crime who order but do not personally commit crimes such as robbery, money laundering and murder. Individuals convicted under such laws can face up to 20 years in prison.

    Did the charges fit the crime? Was this organized crime? or simply unethical? Are we so familiar with justice not being served that when it is we think its unjust or even racism. Is this a prime example of overciminization in America? And most importantly What about the CHILDREN? 

    Call in and let's discuss this case and the educational system in America today. How can we improve or change the systemic and blatant disregard for education and justice for the real victims in this case. Come Get on the COUCH and let's talk about this and much more!!!!
