Ed Marksberry is a man with a purpose. He is a man with ideas of how to make Kentucky better for everybody. As a 4th generation entuckian, Ed is well known and admired for the legacy of his family and the business he runs. He is a carpenter, a home builder and a consultant in the building of homes. He is a leader in his community, nominated in 2010 by the Kentucky Democratic Party to run in the Second District (KY2) for Congress. As a business owner, Ed knows all too well the challenges of running a business successfully and providing quality benefits for his employees. As a citizen, he is an advocate for the best quality of life for our citizens and the cooperation between business and government. Being a Democrat is a full time avocation, as Ed showed when he won the Democratic Man of the Year here in Kentucky. He has not only campaigned for himself, he has been a familiar face as a volunteer. In fact he has volunteered for every election since the Mongiardo era. He has helped others with their campaigns. Mongiardo for Senate, Mike Weaver for US Congress, and David Boswell for Congress are some of the campaigns he has helped on. When his country needed him, Ed was there. He is a decorated Air Force veteran with experience in Grenada. Ed Marksberry is married with two children.

Eagle Point Solar in Iowa just won a judicial ruling in the Iowa State Court against the Iowa Utilities Board to allow power purchase agreements (PPAs). This ruling could have a nationwide impact in particular in the five states where there are laws limiting or forbidding third party PPAs. Join us as we discuss the implications on the rulings with CEO of Eagle Point Solar.
President and CEO, Barry Shear is committed to the wide spread implementation of solar power and the legislative policies that promote the growth of renewable energy systems. Barry founded Eagle Point Solar and built it into one of the larger solar developers in the State. Barry was a business turnaround specialist for 17 years and prior to founding EPS, he was part owner and CEO of Help At Home, Inc., a large homecare provider with operations in 13 states and 140 operating units, providing over 13 million hours of care the last year of his ownership.
Democrats currently hold a 55-45 majority in the U.S. Senate, but that could all change with the upcoming Midterm Elections. We must all be focusing our initial efforts on "flipping" Senate seats from Democrat to Republican in the following key target states: Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Louisiana, and Iowa, but not ending there because there are actually 20 who could be vulnerable. If you're ready to end Harry Reid's tenure as Senate majority leader then please support our upcoming conservative radio talk-show President, Patriot or Puppet, to "flip" the Senate from Democrat to Republican. Senate Democrats are on a fundraising spree, setting records and building a war chest to protect their majority; so we have to go all in to keep them from spreading their lies to gain the Less informed’s vote. It is imperative to defeat at least the 14 ( actually 20, but 14 vulnerable ) Democrat U.S. Senators who's terms are up in 2014. The American people will boot them out when they begin to understand the catastrophic effects to come from the communist model Obama health care bill, that they were deceived by Obama, Reid and Pelosi; high co-pay and premium increases already beginning; tune in May 9, at 11:AM est.
Let us make no mistake whom the Senate represents and it certainly beyond a shadow of doubt that is isn't , "We The People". 90% of the American populace clearly supported background checks related to gun purchase effectively closing the loopholes in regard to gun shows and internet purchase, yet the Senate effectively pandered to the NRA.
This week we also witnessed the bombing at America's iconic Boston Marathon injuring over 100 people and killing 3, including an 8 year old. Aside from the usual media FUBAR coverage (which Jeff has plenty to say about), why is America continually under threat domestically and by foreign based groups?
