Guests Debbie Halvorson and Cheryle Jackson will join us to discuss the political status of women in Illinois politics. Illinois currently ranks 31st among the 50 US states for its percentage of women serving in the state legislature, currently two women are part of the state's Congressional delegation and 3 women are holding statewide elective office. Both Halvorson and Jackson have ran for Congress. Halvorson is the former Representative for the 11th Congressional District and is currently a candidate for the newly-drawn 2nd Congressional District. Jackson ran for the US Senate in 2010.
On the show, we preview the Purdue game at Illinois, as the Boilermakers look to improve their offensive play while keeping up the defensive effort. Who should be the quarterback? Who will be? We talk to OrangeandBlueNews.com columnist Jeremy Werner about the Fighting Illini and feature linebacker Sean Robinson, who will see some familar faces Saturday. And a conversation with Rapheal Davis as Purdue gets set to start basketball practices.
America the Beautiful! White men have lost their place at the top of the hill. It's called social order. They think they lost it when slavery was abolished in 1863. That is not when they lost it. They actually begin to lose their place in the social order, when they waiting 18 months before notifying slaves in the southern states, namely Texas and Louisiana that salvery had been ended by order of the Federal government. As time progressed, white men did less and less, or should I say more and more to try to keep blacks as slaves. Instead of abiding by the new laws, they chose to create new laws to keep their desires legal. The Black Code Laws became part of American policing. The KKK carried out the Black Code Laws. The Freedmans Bureau established to assist slaves in transitioning into citizenship became nothing more than a sham. Peace was not to come between the races based on the pride of poorer white men. Politics was in complete control of legislating what would and could happen to blacks. Police were allowed to create as you go laws and administer judgement as they saw it should be. Prosperity was able to continue based on the desires of those with property ownership. Poverty began to spread even more as a tool for the wealthy to maintain ownership of former slaves. People began to segregate even more than had been during slavery. Power was once again seen in the wealth of the white men. Is there anything different today than in 1863 when slavery was abolished in America. If you have to wait for the approval of politicians, courts, and merchants to have social justics, judicial justice, and economic justice, than not much has change. The change must therefore come by way of we the people. We the working class people of American
The Green Bay Packers come back on the arm of Aaron Rodgers in a 27-24 victory over the Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon. Where does this victory rank in terms of comeback victories in Rodgers' career, as well as Packers' history? Also, that defense -- with injuries surmounting with Jamari Lattimore, Tramon Williams, and Sam Shields during the game -- how can they adjust?
Of course, we'll recap an uneven 38-28 Wisconsin Badgers win over the Illinois Fighting Illini. Aside from Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement running wild on the Illini, what other positives can you take from this team. Are you satisfied with the Badgers primarily going with Joel Stave as starting quarterback? Tell us your thoughts on the team this season so far!
At 8:40, Andy Johnson from B5Q stops on by to talk Wisconsin Badgers hockey. Despite being swept in Alaska, what can this young team achieve this year?
Politics is about life and death of American citizens. Politicial decisions cause some people to die early deaths. Political decisions result in some people living longer better lives. Politics is not a science. Politics is not a game. Politics is the most real set of tactics in America's history as in the history of the world. Politics is best described as a collective group of people and strategies out to gain desired results. Those results are sought at all cost, resulting in some people working all their lives and dying in poverty as they were born and other people living longer, better, lives.
Duluth City Councilor and candidate for Mayor Howie Hanson will join me for what should be a very interesting interview. Listen to hear his views on taxes, fees and where he wants to take the city if elected. We also will chat his early announcment to run for mayor as well plus more if we can get to it.
