We have remained silent concerning the Atlanta Public School scandal so that "justice" could take its course. Now, that the "truth" has been revealed and several Atlanta public schools administrators and teachers were adjudged guilty by a jury of their peers and sentenced for racketeering convictions related to a massive standardized test cheating scandal, Attorney Sherri Jefferson will share her thoughts on the "Real Lesson to be Learned."
This episode will discuss how cheating adversely affects the lives of our children, the moral and legal issues of the jury decisions, the tactics that still exist at and through the Atlanta Public School that promotes the environment that is conducive to the conduct exhibited by their adminsitrators and teachers.
Attorney Jefferson will discuss how the jury verdict will not change the APS culture.
On this episode Jim melts down over the Clinton Foundation financial scandal. Also discussed - does Jeb Bush have skeletons in his own closet? And what do we make of House Speaker Boehner's comment that the Clintons are 'good people?' NBC News anchor Brian Williams reportedly in talks to permanently leave the network.
Just when it was beginning to appear that I, among thousands of others, seemed completely ludicrous to the outside fanbases, emails leaked from the Days offices revealed something quite puzzling: did Ken Corday fear that then head writer Gary Tomlin was planning a spin off soap for ex Sami and EJ, Alison Sweeney and James Scott? Join Courtney as she uncovers the truth about the newest soap scandal to hit the headlines and what this means for the long running daytime television hit.
Are we too easy on our children or is cheating on tests in middle school justififable in certain cases? We all cheated in school and we turned out fine, right?
Are PSSAs and other middle school too much? Should the teachers in Atlanta be jailed for changing test scores?
11 Atlanta Public school teachers were convicted of racketeering charges for their involvement in standardized test rigging and and grade inflation.
The most telling aspect of this scandal is the exposure it gives to the whole illusional quality of big city Democrat led education systems.

Barry Bonds, Jeff Kent kept out of Hall of Fame again
OK, here’s the main thing about numbers in baseball: They all require context. No one could reasonably argue that, say, Mariners first baseman Corey Hart is a more dominant offensive player than Hall of Famer Frank “Home Run” Baker simply because Hart has more career home runs and a higher OPS. We know Baker played in the sport’s deadball era, so we adjust our standards accordingly.
And Bonds stands as one of the sport’s greatest hitters ever in any context. By the park- and league-adjusted stat OPS+, Bonds ranks third all-time behind only Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. It’s perfectly fair to debate whether Bonds’ 763 home runs are more impressive than Hank Aaron’s 755, since Bonds played at a time when lots of guys hit lots of homers. But it’s silly to dismiss all those homers entirely. They all contributed to his teams’ chances of victory.
3. It would be unfair to clean players
This one’s tricky. One of the great shames of baseball’s so-called steroids era is that there were certainly guys who held themselves to higher standards than the league did and refused to take PEDs, and many of those players likely missed out on roster spots or big paydays or places in the record books because they were unwilling to compromise. And that stinks, no doubt.
Problem is, we have no sure way of knowing who they were. This aims by no means to besmirch the reputations of players like Glavine, Maddux and Thomas. But we can never say for sure that no member of the 2014 Hall of Fame class ever juiced. We know only that they successfully convinced us they played clean. And now that the Hall’s doors are open to players from their era, it will become increasingly tricky and disturbing if we keep trying to guess which guys did what without concrete evidence.
4. How will I explain it to my kid?
Tonight it's realer than ever on "It's Real Talk Radio" as we have 2 major topics we're covering. On the first half of the show we'll be discussing the "Atlanta Public School Cheating Scandal" which has been a nationally recognized case that has just about come to an end as a jury has found all but 1 of the accused staff guilty of Count 1: Conspiracy to violate the racketeering influence and corrupt organizations act. Some were found guilty of other crimes but Count 1 was the most serious. Upon sentencing, these ex-staff members of the APS System could be facing a lot of time behind bars and the question we're asking our listeners is do you agree with the outcome, or do you think sending them to jail was too harsh of a penalty considering the crime? One thing's for sure, you know we're gonna keep it real with our perspectives.
On the second half of tonight's show, we'll be discussing Officer Michael Slager's fatal shooting of Walter Scott. Officer Slager, a South Carolina Law Enforcement officer, gunned down an unarmed man by the name of Walter Scott after he tried to flee from being severely Tasered . The footage that was recorded by Fayden Santana, a man who happened to be in the area with a camera phone, doesn't show what took place before Walter Scott took off running and was ultimately gunned down in the process, but what it does show is he didn't at the time of fleeing oppose a threat and as a result was shot 5 times including 4 shots to his back.
How do you feel about Officer Slager's decision? Was it bad judgement, was it cruel intent and ultimately murder in cold blood, or do you actually agree with Officer Slager's use of deadly force? You can believe we're gonna keep it real with our opinions on what went down so make sure you don't miss out! Call in # 347-838-9540

Hillary is in trouble.
In the 1950's Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed for selling nuclear secrets to the Russians and now, 50 years later, we have the Clintons arranging deals with the Russians to provide them with the key component to create nuclear bombs: uranium.
Who knows where this uranium will end up but they are allies of Iran; a country seeking to build a nuclear bomb.
This is not a matter of politics but one of using public positions of power to enrich oneself.
The Clintons are not public servants. They are pigs at the trough of money and power.
The NFL handed out punishments for "crimes" to the Browns and Falcons this week. But what about the Patriots? And how about the Jets? PodVader and Tim Jester, Falcons SuperFan, discuss with input from Rob Koller, the Browns SuperFan, via email.
Does Tim feel shame for what the Atlanta Falcons did? Is the punishment enough to deter this from happening around the league? Shouldn't the punishment be harsher for Rich McKay, the Chairman of the Competition Committee?
How does Rob feel about the Browns and their punishment?
What is the latest on tampering charges filed by the Patriots vs. the Jets re: Darrelle Revis?
And what about Deflate-gate? Should the Patriots even be considered to be the ones ultimately responsible for the balls anyways? Shouldn't that be an NFL thing?
