Martha comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for women's rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.
When the Texas legislature passed the Sonogram Law in 2011, Martha noticed a dangerous trend of stripping Texas women of their constitutional rights. Feeling helpless to fight back, she noticed on social media in early 2012, women's rights rallies being planned in all 50 state capitals. She became part of the core group who planned the rally in Austin on April 28, 2012. Martha was also at the capitol for the special session showdown over HB2 in the summer of 2013. Her 22-year-old daughter, Kayla, testified before the House State Affairs Committee, and her own testimony was read by Senator Wendy Davis during her famous filibuster. The rally in 2012 was the catalyst for her local involvement. Less than three years after her first experience in activism, Martha will be sworn in as president of the Texas Democratic Women of Caldwell County on January 19, 2015. Her goal for the group is to have members connect with the community in an effort to re-engage their neighbors in the political process of electing leaders who will serve the people of this great state.

The show promotes and discusses the ideas of true freedom and liberty for all people without the partisan politics. Exposing the government for what it is, a mafia that rules only by the threat of force without concent. The show supports peaceful consentual voluntary relationships.Where the people are not extorted, robbed, oppressed, controlled and abused under the threat of force by the government and in many cases actual force is used to force compliance.
Governments and it's rulers have no place in the world. I am an individual and I believe in freedom and liberty for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation as all human beings have a right to freedom and liberty. I will stand up to government oppression and do what I can to educate the public on the illusion and or lack of true freedom in America.

Toward the end of 2014 activist movements sprang up all over the country. Spearheaded by Black Lives Matter....Movements of Racial Justice, Police Brutality, Immigrants rights, and income inequality are sure to change the political landscape across the country in 2015.
CBS reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, talks about the shrinking role of investigative journalism in today’s media and the lengths that opponents will go to to discourage and obstruct legitimate reporting.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

After weeks of waiting the decision of the Grand Jury comes down...No Indictment. As expected, violence, destruction of property and mayhem erupt across the country.
We will start the morning recapping the events that put this small community into the international spotlight. Is this event a photograph of America 2014? Has this event been milked for the sake of politics, media ratings and/or used as a tool for "race baiting" and division of the country?
President Obama, Al Sharpton and hordes of other politicos, actors and activist take to the airways to put in their two cents...Help or Gas on the Flames?
Special guest Michelle Wiles, politico, candidate, activivist, wife and mother will join us "In the Pickle Barrel". Miles, a mother of six homeschooled children, somehow finds the time to not only "buck the system", but work to do something to create change.
Wiles will share her vision and why she is so involved. Perhaps just as important...how does she find the time!
Hope you will join us this morning at 8AM-10AM EST as we gather "In the Pickle Barrel" in search of a way to get out.
It's a political mind flush. The president bounces from one topic to another. The House is one step behind, reacting to him rather than creating their own direction. The Senate waits on the House. The Democrats just wait. ... and the American people just don't seem to matter.
How do we stop this crazy train? This run away railroading? This inevitable train wreck?
Let's talk process. In order to act, we must know what is happening. It is fun to debate all these issues that evoke such passion, but if it all comes crumbling down does any of it really matter?
Every two years, politicians lie to get what they need ~ our vote ~ in order to get what they want ~ our money. How do we stop it? Can we stop it?
The answer to me is so simple .... which is why it is so difficult.
Let's explore the potential power that WE the people actually have if we could only find some way to unite for a common cause against the current state of American politics.
