Like that nosey neighbor that knows everybodies business or the neighborhood bully walking around off pure intimidation or the one dad that was like everybodies dad because he discilplined all. The Stoop is the spot where information was gathered and passed around way before FaceBook or Twitter. This Saturday we will being doing just that. So join me your host SoapBoxScooter and the Stoop alum. Call in 607-203-5357

  • Alzheimer's Caretaker, Dr. Nate Hare talks about journey wife Dr.Julia Hare

    in Family

    The Gist of Freedom is asking you to join us as we support Dr. Nathan Hare and his wife as they struggle with Alzheimer's. http://www.gofundme.com/Let-Her-Be-Free


     "Dr. Julia Hare has been living with Alzheimer’s for several years and was she was recently diagnosed with the End Stage of the condition. Her health providers refused to treat her on an outpatient basis without confinement ( if you are determined to leave and expressly “go home,” they label you a “wanderer” and lock the door.  When I would go to see her in her locked situation, at the end of the visiting hour I would have to conspire with the staff to distract her in order for me to ease out the door and slip away without her. On the other side of the slamming door, secured by the loud click of the prison-like lock, I would hear her realizing my exit and banging on the door and calling my namel.”

    I took a physician and a lawyer as well as a retired judge and with me and went out and brought her home. Almost as soon as we got home she was getting better.

    Although most of her medical costs are now being paid by her health insurance company, the cost of caregivers is staggering and relentless.

    Four years ago when we were undeniably blindsided by this diabolical and incurable condition, several persons suggested that I let it be known and accept donations to help preserve the freedom and dignity of the proud and inimitable lady I promised, fifty-seven years ago, to protect and “To Love and to Cherish”.

    I am now following their advice and posting this donation request. Although we are advised by the Good Book to share and share alike, keep in mind that it’s the little things that count and, as one of Aesop's fables reminds us, no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

  • FOCUS ON THOSE WHO LIFT YOU UP

    in Spirituality

    JOIN MARA AND BOB TO DISCUSS THE QUESTION "DO YOU FOCUS YOUR MIND ON THOSE WHO BRING YOU DOWN OR THOSE WHO LIFT YOU UP?"  IT IS MORE LIKELY THAN NOT, PROBABLE, THAT THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN ALL OF US HAVE ALLOWED OUR MINDS TO FOCUS ON THOSE WHO PUT US DOWN, JUDGE US, TALK BADLY ABOUT US AND GENERALLY LEAVE US FEELING LESS THAN.  DURING SUCH TIMES WHEN WE BECOME OBSESSED WITH NOT BEING ENOUGH, IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO ALSO INVEST TIME TRYING TO SHOW THE PERSON(S) "ABUSING" US THAT THEY ARE WRONG.  IN ESSENCE WE GIVE THEM OUR POSITIVE ENERGY AS A RESULT OF THEM TREATING US NEGATIVELY.


    THESE TIMES LEAVE LITTLE ROOM FOR POSITIVE THOUGHT---FOR HAPPINESS. INSTEAD WE ARE ACTUALLY WASTING PRECIOUS MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES FOCUSING ON NEGATIVITY AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO MISS OUR INNER BEAUTY.  WE DO THIS EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER OTHERS.  SOMETIMES WE WILL IGNORE THOSE WHO REACH OUT TO US IN KINDNESS AS WE WORK TO GARNER THE FAVOR OF THOSE WHO ARE BEATING US DOWN.


    THIS BEHAVIOR PATTERN DESTROYS THE NOW AND ALL WE HAVE IS NOW.  ITS TIME TO ACCEPT EVERYONE WILL NOT LIKE US AND HOLD CLOSE---LIFT UP---THOSE WHO TREAT US KINDLY, THOSE WHO DO LIKE US.  WHEN WE FOCUS OUR MINDS ON LOVE---WE RELEASE THE CONTROL THE NON-LOVERS HAVE ON US AND FREE OUR MINDS TO SEND LOVE TO THEM RATHER THAN EMPOWERING THEIR NEGATIVITY BY FRETTING OVER THAT WE CANNOT CHANGE.  RECLAIM YOUR POWER AND BE LOVE---STARTING WITH LOVING YOU.  


    People inspire you or they drain you.  Pick them wisely. ---Hans F. Hansen


    NAMASTE BOB AND MARA

    "Hazed & Exposed; Attorneys, Activists & Journalists Fight Together in Kansas"

    in Politics

    Thursday afternoon a jury acquitted Kyler Carriker of Felony Murder.  The verdict ended a fight for justice that was two years old and reached across the country with attorney, activists & journalists all pitching in, joined by a community of supporters that never wavered from the fight. It was wonderful to watch and more wonderful to be a part of. Sunday Morning we spend time with a few of the important people who waged that fight.  Mike Shatz of Kansas Exposed, Meko Haze of The Daily Haze and Joe Grumbine of The Human Solution International join me to discuss the trial, the issues, the protestors and how much more work there is for everyone to do. Mike, Meko and Joe provided a window into the trial process reporting on testimony, rulings by Judge Pullman and the strategy of the Prosecuting Attorney.  Along with Jennifer Winn, Kyler's mother, providing daily video updates, these three and people like Shona Banda, Kisty Watson and even Mike Harris on social media, showed the world how unity works in a fight for justice and how Kyler and marvelous attorney Sarah Swain knew at all times that there were many fighting with them.  It will be an inspiring conversation.  So grab a cup of coffee and join us Sunday Morning for this important discussion. Longtime Activist, Journalist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo brings you "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee". On Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM. Advocating engagement Bobby points out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Money in Politics, the Political Party Machine, & partisan blind allegiance is on full display as he advocates against the erosion of Constitutional Protections in the name of corruption & tyranny. "If we focused on following the Constitution we would solve many of the ills of our society."
