Google Cubans tortured Nam Pows. You will find the POWS had nick names for the Cuban Communists who beat Americans so bad they could not be shown in photo sessions. Nick names like Pancho, Chico the lump etc. Some POWS were beaten so badly they had to be killed and hidden. Hanoi John Kerry is another BO BIRDCALL and Hanoi hoc tooey Jane fonda should have received the Rosenberg seats. These two never stopped betraying the USA. You find that appalling? Then I am sure you will be shocked to learn that the democratic party is now the communist party.There are communistb cells like Fema leninists, afro leninists,islamo leninists,enviro leninists. religious leninists, liberation theology is communist tactics.homo leninists etc. Political correctness was introduced by the communists in1914 in Russia. google the 45 goals of the communist party and weep for your country. then weep for your children and those helpless Americans yet to come and be brainwashed tax slaves.

Join Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews Dr. Shaelyn Pham, Psychologist and author of The Joy of Me.
Even as a young girl, Dr. Pham had wanted to write a book but it was after decades of being in the practice that she became clear on what to write about. She narrates how she kept seeing and hearing a recurring theme in her talks and encounters with other people, which is that many find themselves giving so much but getting nothing in return. This made her realize that there may be a lot of other people struggling with the same issues and so she decided to write the book to get the message out even to those she doesn’t have an opportunity to meet and talk with.
For aspiring authors struggling to finish their book, Dr. Pham advises them to never give up and to just learn to enjoy the journey. As she puts it, “You start writing because you actually love writing but when you’re too focused on the result, you also get overwhelmed.”

I WOULD SAY IT BECAME OBVIOUS WITH THE ANTI WIN LENINISTS IN COMMUNIST COLLEGES DURING NAM. BUT THEY HAD TO BE SPAWNED BY COMMUNIST PROFESSORS YEARS BEFORE. IF YOU GOOGLE THE 45 GOALS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY THAT WAS ENTERED IN THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD IN 1962. YOU CAN BE SURE THEY GO BACK TO THE 40'S. WHEN WE WERE ALLIES DURING THE WAR IT WAS EASY TO PENETRATE AMERICAN SECURITY. COMMUNIST CELLS WERE IN LOS ALAMOS NOT KNOWING THEY WERE SPYING ON EACH OTHER.
THE VIET NAM WAR WAS LOST ON THE STREETS OF CHICAGO, NEW YORK AND SAN FRANCISCO. WE DID NOT STAND UP FOR OUR BOYS THEN AND WE ARE NOT STANDING UP AGAIN. IF YOU TALK TO VETS WITH PTSD. ASK THEM DO THEY FEEL BETRAYED. I BET THAT IS 35% OF THE PROBLEM. AREN'T YOU DISTURBED BY AT LEAST 35,000 MISSING LIMBS?
AFTER 14 YEARS OF THE 100 YEARS WAR ARE YOU UPSET THAT WE STILL DON'T HAVE AN IED PRE DETONATOR

Lunch with Louden is a rebroadcast of our 2012 Memorial Day show. Guest Cheryl Hatch, international journalist/photo journalist with extensive work in war zones, and the daqughter of a career Army officer, disusses her insights about the cost of conflict. Ironiclly, in 2012 she had just returned from an embed in Afganastan, and this year has just returned from providing photo support for a story about American-built ebola treatment facilities in Liberia.
The banner for the earlier show:
This week is a special Memorial Day conversation with journalist Cheryl Hatch, just back after an embed with an Army battalion in Afghanistan where she documented the lives of soldiers before, during, and after deployment. Her years of being in and out of war zones, plus a child hood of waiting for her father to come home from four tours in Viet Nam, have brought forth a body of work called THE COST OF CONFLICT. This insightful collection of images capturing what war leaves behind, combined with her reverence and respect for military personnel and their families, should help set the tone for a thoughtful and meaningful Memorial Day Holiday.

I co-wrote Joe’s War which is the first screenplay to go to film that I have worked on. It is a subject that hit home and forced me to become aware of the struggles of PTSD many of which I was un-aware of. currently we are trying to meet with distributors about getting Joe’s War to theaters and Video. I am also reaching out to organizations to talk more to see What else I can do. I have since decided to help as much as I can and for another Viet Nam veteran named Howard Kuker, as he tries to bring about more awareness for PTSD and the struggles with a public awareness video. I am going to assist him in trying to get the word out. The video will be called “22 a day no way”. I have been in touch with various Veteran groups and I am just testing the waters to see if and where I can help out.
MY SPECIAL GUEST:AUTHOR & VIET NAM VET DAVID BRUNDAGE WITH HIS BOOK & STORY.....
Ripples in Our Lives: Near Death Experiences of David Brundage
David Brundage experiences three near-death experiences and out-of-body experiences while in the hospital! During the first surgery, his heart stops as soon as the incision is made in his abdomen. The second surgery is done after the doctors check his heart out, which completes the original surgery. The third is after he gets an infection and eviscerates, requiring emergency surgery and a colostomy bag. And the fourth is to reverse the colostomy. David develops "ripples" in his fingernails after each near-death experience. While the ripples are present in his fingernails, he has a connection to the spirit world and the paranormal. Take a walk in David's shoes as he sees Jesus, spirit guides, angels, ghosts, dark shadows and entities. Read about the physical and emotional horror he and his family go through while experiencing surgeries, infections, hallucinations, depressions and so much more.
