    That Time Of The Month - Our Inaugural Episode!

    in Lifestyle

    Our first episode features a brief introduction of the three of us.
    Our rags this month: 
    Rachel goes off on the confusion caused by the technology required to send a kid to school. 
    Duane takes a swing at his fellow environmentalists for selling fear rather than the benefits of being green. 
    Stacey, fresh off her citizens' police academy experience, takes on the public's misperceptions about cops.
    In our final 15 minutes, each of us talk about what we are reading, watching and listening to right now in a segment we call, "the flow". 
    We want to thank our friend, local freelance guitarist and composer, Jeff Reeder for providing some great original music used throughout this episode. Check him out at JM Furniture Repair and Restoration in Bonner Springs, KS.

    National Caregivers Month is featured on Life Lessons

    in Lifestyle


    72% of U.S. Caregivers in Danger of Leaving Loved Ones without a Caregiver Entirely

    NASHVILLE, TN — “I felt trapped. I felt despair that would hover over me for the next dozen years. This was a difficult place. I never imagined that the road would contain such suffering, loss, heartache, self-sacrifice, failure, and love,” says Peter Rosenberger.

    In Hope for the Caregiver, Rosenberger describes the hell that his wife, Gracie went through – 78 operations, 60 physicians, a dozen hospitals and costs topping $9 million. He calls caregiving “One of the toughest jobs on earth.” There is a seldom-discussed seismic shift rumbling beneath the American economic and political mantle. By 2029, the youngest of the “baby boom” generation — those born between 1946 and 1964 — will reach retirement age. This group, over 76 million strong, added to those born prior to 1946, means over 90 million adults in America may soon need long-term caregivers. More than $1 trillion of wealth will be ultimately transferred from families because of the caring for these individuals.


    “Make no mistake, if you love someone, you will be a caregiver. If you live long enough, you’ll need one,” says author and radio host, Peter Rosenberger, a 30-year caregiver himself. “But, here’s the real urgency: caregivers are usually family members—a massive unpaid workforce—who are in danger of burning out physically, emotionally, and fiscally before their loved ones. And with over 72% of the 65 million caregivers in the United States failing to see their own doctor, the most vulnerable among us are in jeopardy of being left without a caregiver entirely.

    The PODcast #12: Battle for the bean casserole

    in Football

    Pride Of Detroit finds itself in the midst of a win streak! We don't know what to do with ourselves. Let's talk...

    (3:45): ...about the Oakland game! Where do we start in talking about a game of surprisingly competent football for the Lions? What's changing in our opinions of the season? How did the defense get it turned around? Can Caldwell actually win his way to keeping his job or is it just the fear of fans?

    (22:40): ...about Philadelphia and Thanksgiving! Amazing what two wins can do for attitudes as the crew eyes a third straight Lions victory and defends Thanksgiving yet again. What's going on with the Eagles? Also, Jeremy really wants to see the Lions beat Mark Sanchez. 

    (32:20) ...about the NFL? We don't have a lot to talk about, so we end up talking about some league-wide news. Bad refereeing, Case Keenum, and Carolina Panthers social media.

    (40:20) ...about reader questions! A big ol' fight breaks out over bean casserole and other Thanksgiving sides.

    SBPM 'Black Exodus' Screening & Black Lives Matter Openly Attacks SBPM

    in Politics

    Tonight we will discuss our upcoming free screening of the SBPM made-for-YT-FB-IG-TW video, 'Black Exodus,' on the American public school system.  The live screening will be held this coming Sunday, November 29, 2015 @ 2:00pm EST at the Thurgood Marshall Center Trust, Inc., 1816 12th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009. 

    ****This video was a collaboration between African Unification & SBPM.****

    We will also be discussing the most recent attack against Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM).  Apparently, Black Lives Matter got wind of the SBPM 'Black Exodus' free screening, they decided that heterosexual Black people do not have the right to meet and discuss rebuilding and repairing our family structures.  Here is the link to the Black Lives Matter event to shut down the SBPM's right to free assembly:
