Join us every Sunday morning to hear all the news from the front lines as we help educate our communities and spread awareness!
No One Should Go To Jail For A Plant!
“California cops eat marijuana edibles, play darts, joke about kicking amputee’s ‘f---ing nub’ during Santa Ana pot shop raid” blared the headline in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. UPI, CBS, NBC and FOX News issued stories of pot brownie eating verbally abusive and castigating cops caught on video. The story broke June 12 when Orange County Voice and attorney Matt Pappas released a video tape of the raid by a camera the police overlooked when they stormed into the Sky High Dispensary and dismantled what they thought were all the video cameras.
The show’s first guest is Marla James, a volunteer at the dispensary who is a legally blind amputee, who was there when the cops burst in with masks on, guns drawn and ordered members and employees to the ground. The brouhaha that has ensued with nationwide attention over the abusive pot eating cops has triggered an internal investigation. Hear the story behind the story as Marla recounts what happened that fateful day.
Citizen Lobbyists for medical marijuana is the name of the game in Sacramento on June 15 as Americans for Safe Access brings hundreds of medical marijuana patients and advocates from all over the state of California to lobby their state legislators for safe, reliable and local access to their medicine. With 13 bills touching almost every aspect of medical marijuana, patients want to let their lawmakers know how these bills will affect their lives.
Every year the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project rents a 15 passenger van to bring patients to ASAs Citizen Lobby Day. For this show the second guest are six of these patients in a free-spirited discussion on why they are in Sacramento, what it’s like to be there and what they hope to accomplish.
Our Public Education is under relentless attack. In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker slashed the education budget in favor of privatization, standardized testing, and a basketball stadium. In New York, the Board of Regents appointed MaryEllen Elia as its Education Commissioner. Elia, who was ran out of Florida, has long ties to Common Core and Standardized Testing. The recent Opt-Out movement that was so large in New York essentially had its face slapped. Georgia and Wisconsin both are advocating for a workforce instead of education and a growing movement to certify teachers without requiring the formal education. The two major political parties are behaving essentially the same. We are joined again by Marla Kilfoyle of Badass Teachers, http://www.badassteacher.org/ to discuss the many issues destroying our education system. Marla offers the educator and activist perspective. BAT's mission "to give voice to every teacher who refuses to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality through education and refuse to accept assessments, tests and evaluations created and imposed by corporate driven entities that have contempt for authentic teaching and learning." So grab a cup of coffee and join us. Longtime Activist, Journalist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio airs 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, and 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.”

Environmental, animal rights & human rights activism ~ We are not free until all life is free ~ Marla Stormwolf-Patty....
The Alliance for Earth, Life, Liberty & Advocacy (AELLA) is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, listed as a public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to AELLA are tax deductible, under section 170 of the Code. AELLA was founded on January 1st of 2010 by Anthony Damiano (President) and Marla Stormwolf Patty (Vice-President). Marla is also the founder of the Stopcrush.org initiative.
The main goal of AELLA is to do whatever we can to raise global awareness, altering the way that humanity sees itself and the world around it. There is an extremely pointed need to educate the public in regard to the devastation that animal agriculture/animal exploitation is causing. No matter how you view humanity, we are currently an extremely destructive force, negatively impacting all life, including ourselves. If the continued dismantling of the global ecosystemic balance does not come to an end and very soon, there will be no turning back for us. There will be nothing left for our children, nor our grandchildren and so on. Our mutual governments have sat idly by, allowing the slaughter of life, the destruction of the environment and the suppression of our rights to continue for far too long. They have also allowed the public to drift in a false sense of security whilst countless forms of life on the planet fall to extinction.
Happy 2015!! May you prosper in the coming year!

Company B's first single "Fascinated" was released in 1986 on the independent label The Summer. The song created so much buzz in clubs around Miami that it soon made its way to local radio stations. This in turn led to its being picked up and re-released by Atlantic records. The trio, adorned with white wigs and clad in blue leather, first made waves with "Fascinated," which took clubs by storm in 1986. It crossed over to the pop charts in 1987, climbing into the Top 30. Follow-up singles "Full Circle," "Perfect Lover," and "Jam on Me" were also club hits. All were contained on their self-titled album, which charted that summer and the remainder of their output would be repackagings of their hits. In 1989, Company B released its follow-up album Gotta Dance, sporting a revamped image: Also seemingly gone were the Latin-flavored rhythms of the previous album. Singles culled from the album included the house-influenced "You Stole My Heart," They have been performing extensively over the past few years and have released new material.
