An educated consumer is empowered to make sound financial choices, grow their savings, build their assets, and find greater financial peace-of-mind. On today’s episode of Your Money, Your Matters, we will celebrate America Saves week and Military Saves week. Both are national campaigns created to bring awareness to the importance of saving. The campaigns kicked off yesterday and run through March 1.
Reportedly, nearly 44 percent of American households have almost no savings for emergencies – that is a serious problem. Radio personalities Linda Webb-Mañon and Rick Grady, Cornerstone Credit Union League; Courtney Moran, Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, and Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services, will share tips and strategies for saving more, paying down debt, and managing credit wisely.
Your Money, Your Matters is a weekly show broadcasting every Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to noon Central Time. Each week, the four discuss financial issues of most importance to consumers. Tune in, share your thoughts, or gain helpful advice.
We will update you on what is happening around the world. We hope that you will call in and share with us the kinds of things you are seeing where you live. Is the media the worst terrorist for giving the bad guys a platform? Or have you experienced things in your neck of the woods that aren't getting reported? Join us to discuss.
The War of 1812, was one of America's "small and forgotten" conflicts, much like the Korea in the 20th century. Ill advised, and really unnecessary for both Great Britain and the young United States of America (which was less than 50 years old at the time), the War of 1912 was a conflict that gained neither side much benefit, and diverted badly needed resources from other endeavors. Nevertheless, there were a number of intriguing and important lessons to be learned from the conflict, none more interesting than those derived from the British Chesapeake Campaign of 1814. A British squadron under command of Adm. Cochrane, raised habit for most of 1814 from the Virginia Tidewater to the waters around Baltimore, doing a surprising amount of damage and raising havoc against the seemingly hapless Americans. The British squadron took and burned Hampton, VA, portions of Washington, DC, and other towns along the bay, eventually only being stopped by the heroic defense of Baltimore and bombardment of Fort McHenry. It is a fascinating story, little known by most Americans, which almost went unnoticed during the recent bicentennial of the War of 1812.

Whether you like them or not, guns are probably the most significant devices ever produced during man's industrial era here on earth. In a merger of modern metallurgy and chemistry, firearms have been among the most extreme engineering achievements in the history of the human race. But along with the technical achievements represented by guns, there have also been the consequences and social responsibilities that have gone with them. More and bloodier wars have been using firearms, than all other weapons previously developed by mankind. And today, given the greater media exposure of gun violence to the general public, the right to own and possess firearms has become a matter of international controversy. In between these two realities, is a gun culture which truly enjoys and marels at the qualities and variety of firearms across the world. And as might be imagined, many people have their individual favorite guns.
But whatever your preferences, you're probably going to enjoy the subject of this week's Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Zenith Press author T.J. Mullen to discuss his new book, 365 Guns You Must Shoot. Part of a new series that Zenith Press is rolling out this summer, 365 Guns is a compendium of some of the greatest firearms ever created, from nations all over the world. Certainly, you're in for a lively hour of guns, opinions, and favorites!
