SORT BY Relevancy
Imagine if you were subject to all kind of restrictions when you went out in public simply because of your race color or religion. Would you rebel and say "why should I wear handcuffs and leg irons in public when I have done nothing wrong?" I know I would! Well my friend, if you would rebel, if you would stand up and say "that simply isn't right!" then you are against BSL! What is BSL you may ask? Well, during today's show we will be discussing BSL (Breed Specific Legislation, also known as Breed Discriminatory Legislation.) and why this type of law is problem legislation. BSL laws are not just a problem in the US, they are a problem globally.
Some countries have significantly tighter restrictions on certain breeds of dogs than the restrictions we see in the US and Canada. We'll be looking at those restrictions, how they affect dog owners, and how we can all work together to overcome this blatant discrimination of dog breeds that is based purely in ignorance. As always, please feel free to join the conversation by calling (646) 716-6583.

"In the '90s, we witnessed efforts by franchisee rights advocates to introduce federal franchise legislation to protect franchisee interests in their relationships with franchisors. In connection with the FTC reviewing and amending the FTC Rule on Franchising, similar efforts were made to add a relationship component to the amended rule. These various efforts failed and we have been through a period of relative calm with respect to proposed franchise legislation.
However, in recent months we have seen a resurgence of legislative efforts – this time at the state level – that may change the playing field. Whether it is due to the challenging economic environment, a perception that franchise agreements are more one-sided or other circumstances, these recent efforts seek to tilt the balance in favor of franchisees by restricting franchisor practices that are deemed unfair, protecting franchisees’ equity in their businesses and empowering collective actions by franchisee groups." ~ Erik B. Wulff, Esq.
Join my guests, Attorneys, Erik Wulff and Robert Purvin as they discuss differing views on these efforts to increase franchisee rights. This will be a count/counterpoint type of discussion. To the extent appropriate, I will add the perspective of the landlord and how these changes may effect their leases.

Politicians role to help usher in America's economic boom is to pass legislation assuring business start up measures are for safety reasons. Business start up obstacles like fees and unrealistic stardards stifles entrepreneurs and potentially hurts the economy.
An economic boom is ripe and in the making. Plant the seeds of the fruits you desire and work to grow prosperity. Prepare your goods and services for market, beginning today. An economic boom this time around results in prosperity for all when we get the corrupt elected officials get out of the way of citizens.
The way for those who are starting businesses is to contact your elected official and have a discussion about the state of the economy and how your plans are suffering as a result. Chances are you won't make face to face contact, but you can communicate by email, twitter, letters and visits to leave material if no more.
Contact elected officials for their community schedule and attend the townhalls and be rpeapred to asked questions related to your concerns. The term economic boom has to do with an explosion of spending resulting in profits for all who produces goods and services. Those who are prepared, hard working, risk takers will see better days and pleasure in the years to come.
Prepare your place in the economic boom or you will be wishing you had this time next year. The big picture here is a united America, investing in goods and services in this land of opportunity. With hard work, risk taking, investing, and unity we'll see prosperity in places never before imagined. Let's get ready to prosper America. Get your elected officials are involved.

Shane Krauser takes on the key issues of the days and analyzes them like none other - according to the rule of law and our U.S. Constitution. Are you ready to restore this nation to its foundational principles? Shane hits on the following topics:
1. Is America exceptionalism? Shane talks about the following video produced by Aaron Sorkin (Newsroom) and its contentions that America is not exceptional. Hollywood has once again bamboozled the American people and even conservatives are buying it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMqcLUqYqrs
2. What does it mean to be free?
3. Free market capitalism and minimum wage laws.
4. Piers Morgan is not done with the NRA. We're sure that the NRA is just shaking in its boots.
