At war 214 out of her 237 calendar years of existence. We never gone a decade without war. The only time without war was the isolationist period of the Great Depression from 1935 to 1940.
Eisenhower warned about the MIC:
"A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction..."
"...In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disasterous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist..."
"Only an alert and knowledgable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."
The disturbing truth about how Our Oppression creats a fundamentally unfair criminal justice system toward Blacks, and how Blacks are fed into the Prison Industrial Complex.
We take a hard look at root causes of crime and punishment- inequities in arrests, bonds, sentencers, etc.
We will takle controversial subjects as the deep-seeded societal prejudices of some judges, the anti-black biases of some jurors, the black defendant's blind belief in the fact that if they confess everything will be ok, etc. etc.
The MIlitary Exchange Radio Show is All About Veterans, Active Duty and Reserve MIlitary Personel. During the 60's thru the 80's I saw how the returning Veteran was treated. How His Character was deminished in the eyes of His civilian counterparts.My Job is to raise the image of the Veteran, show How He or She has been an asset to their community. I mix this with Current Daily events, Humor, Infornation and a better explanation of world events, With a "no hold bar" approach to Military and Veteran Politics. and end the show with a Healing approach from the word of God.
Today the United States has approximately 1.8 million people behind bars: about 100,000 in federal custody, 1.1 million in state custody, and 600,000 in local jails. Prisons hold inmates convicted of federal or state crimes; jails hold people awaiting trial or serving short sentences. The United States now imprisons more people than any other country in the world—perhaps half a million more than Communist China. The American inmate population has grown so large that it is difficult to comprehend: imagine the combined populations of Atlanta, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Des Moines, and Miami behind bars. "We have embarked on a great social experiment," says Marc Mauer, the author of the upcoming book The Race to Incarcerate. "No other society in human history has ever imprisoned so many of its own citizens for the purpose of crime control." The prison boom in the United States is a recent phenomenon. Throughout the first three quarters of this century the nation's incarceration rate remained relatively stable, at about 110 prison inmates for every 100,000 people. In the mid-1970s the rate began to climb, doubling in the 1980s and then again in the 1990s. The rate is now 445 per 100,000; among adult men it is about 1,100 per 100,000. During the past two decades roughly a thousand new prisons and jails have been built in the United States. Nevertheless, America's prisons are more overcrowded now than when the building spree began, and the inmate population continues to increase by 50,000 to 80,000 people a year.
Sons of Anarchy – Episode 608: Los FantasmasJust as the episode title indicates, our characters are haunted in this episode. Sins of the past come back like ghosts, affecting the people of Charming in powerful ways. Join Amy, Tash, and Lucia as they discuss the latest episode, on Sunday, November 3rd at 7:00pm ET.
Sons of Anarchy – Episode 607: Sweet and VadedThe events of this week’s episode were so insane, they put the drama of the war with the Irish Kings on the back burner. Exploding clubhouses have nothing on the explosive drama that Tara has wrought. We are still speechless. Also, Venus’s return to Charming developed into something unexpectedly moving and tragic, impacting Jax in a powerful way. Daddy issues, mommy issues ... can anyone escape the legacy of the family he or she is born into? Are sons and daughters doomed to repeat the destructive lives of their parents? That seems to increasingly be the theme of the season, and the series. Join the ladies of SOA Clubhouse on Sunday, October 27th at 7:00pm ET to discuss the controversial episode. Amy, Tash, and Lucia will be taking calls again this week, so share your thoughts!
Sons of Anarchy – Episode 606: SalvageSo, the Clubhouse exploded. That happened. Will the Sons be able to rebuild and recover from their loss? Or will the ongoing war with the Irish Kings threaten to destroy the brotherhood for good? Join Amy, Tash, Amber, and Lucia on Sunday, October 20th at 7:00pm ET to discuss the latest heart-pounding episode. And feel free to call in, because unlike Jax, the ladies of the VRO Clubhouse always bring it to the table.
Anarchism does not mean bloodshed; it does not mean robbery, arson, etc. Anarchism means peace and tranquility to all. The word Anarchism comes to us from the Greek word ?ναρχος which literally means "no rulers". Anarchism is, therefore, a society built upon the foundation of non-coercive free association of all, guaranteeing freedom of thought and action.
Anarchism is not kids throwing rocks through windows and causing chaos. It is practical, contrary to popular belief. There have been hundreds of thousands of societies throughout history we would now consider to have been organized along anarchist principles - including most indigenous societies. Compared to hierarchical authoritarian societies they typically were and are much more stable and afford their members dramatically higher standards of living. Anarchism is self-organization created by consent and mutual association, without coercion. It is not mob rule, statism, or tyranny.
Join us tonight as we have a discussion about how or if anarchy could work.
Sons of Anarchy – Episode 605: The Mad King It seems that the club has been threatening to explode for multiple seasons, and now it has literally happened. Can the Sons bounce back after the explosion at Teller-Morrow? And how far will their war with the Irish Kings go? Tune in on Sunday, October 13th at 7:00pm ET to hear the ladies of VRO Clubhouse analyze the latest events in Charming. Amy, Tash, and Lucia will be taking calls this week, so plan on calling in with your questions, comments, and theories. Until then, be on the look-out for shamrock pens, because they spell trouble.

As America enters its week of remembering the service of our veterans, it is worth remembering that not all veterans wore uniforms when they served the nation. One such example are the field operations personnel of the Central Intelligence Agency, whose very existence and service is denied as a matter of routine. In spite of the discretionary nature of their service however, these clandestine warriors have taken America and its military everywhere and has gone since 9/11, and are worth remembering as we approach Veterans Day.
To learn more about the warriors of CIA's Clandestine Service, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. EST. His guests this week will be Gary Berntsen, a legendary CIA field operator and counterterrorism expert. Author of the book JAWBREAKER, Bernsten will be talking about his military and CIA service, along with his work in politics and Veterans Affairs since his retirement. Listeners are encouraged to call in and ask questions and offer opinions, should they desire.
