    Women's Rights Activist: Martha

    in Women

    Martha comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for women's rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.

    When the Texas legislature passed the Sonogram Law in 2011, Martha noticed a dangerous trend of stripping Texas women of their constitutional rights. Feeling helpless to fight back, she noticed on social media in early 2012, women's rights rallies being planned in all 50 state capitals. She became part of the core group who planned the rally in Austin on April 28, 2012. Martha was also at the capitol for the special session showdown over HB2 in the summer of 2013. Her 22-year-old daughter, Kayla, testified before the House State Affairs Committee, and her own testimony was read by Senator Wendy Davis during her famous filibuster. The rally in 2012 was the catalyst for her local involvement. Less than three years after her first experience in activism, Martha will be sworn in as president of the Texas Democratic Women of Caldwell County on January 19, 2015. Her goal for the group is to have members connect with the community in an effort to re-engage their neighbors in the political process of electing leaders who will serve the people of this great state.

    No indictment in Ferguson: Violence Erupts...Political Activist Michelle Wiles

    in Politics Conservative

    After weeks of waiting the decision of the Grand Jury comes down...No Indictment. As expected, violence, destruction of property and mayhem erupt across the country.

    We will start the morning recapping the events that put this small community into the international spotlight. Is this event a photograph of America 2014? Has this event been milked for the sake of politics, media ratings and/or used as a tool for "race baiting" and division of the country? 

    President Obama, Al Sharpton and hordes of other politicos, actors and activist take to the airways to put in their two cents...Help or Gas on the Flames?

    Special guest Michelle Wiles, politico, candidate, activivist, wife and mother will join us "In the Pickle Barrel". Miles, a mother of six homeschooled children, somehow finds the time to not only "buck the system", but work to do something to create change.

    Wiles will share her vision and why she is so involved. Perhaps just as important...how does she find the time! 

    Hope you will join us this morning at 8AM-10AM EST as we gather "In the Pickle Barrel" in search of a way to get out.

    Artist, Activist and Storyteller, Paul Richmond

    in LGBT

    Paul Richmond is an artist, activist, and storyteller. His work often incorporates elements of pop culture, politics, and his own experiences as a gay man. You can see all of his work, purchase some prints and more at http://paulrichmondstudio.com. His latest series, War Paint, explores ideas of identity and masculinity through expressive, figurative paintings of men covering their bodies with paint. He enjoys working with models who have made important or interesting contributions to LGBT culture, and he's painted everyone from Jack Mackenroth to Perez Hilton. Many of the "gaylebrity" models were a part of his Cheesecake Boys series, a gay/male spin on classic pin-up art from the 40's and 50's.

    When he's not painting, he is busy with a non-profit organization that he founded with his childhood art teacher called the You Will Rise Project. Their mission to empower young people who have experienced bullying to speak out through the creation of uncensored artworks. He was bullied horribly as a kid and having a creative outlet made all the difference. He does free workshops for young people, a mentorship program connecting college artists with bullied high school students, a special project last spring called Art For Michael in support of an 11 year old boy who attempted suicide after being bullied for his love of My Little Pony, and a new social media photo campaign called #SelfieRespect. Visit: http://youwillriseproject.com.

    Him and his husband  are involved with the fight for marriage equality as well. They were married a year and a half ago with a group of 24 other LGBT couples who rode a bus to Washington DC and had our ceremony in front of the Supreme Court building just days before DOMA was repealed.

    This, That And The Political Other

    in Politics Conservative

    It's a political mind flush. The president bounces from one topic to another. The House is one step behind, reacting to him rather than creating their own direction. The Senate waits on the House. The Democrats just wait. ... and the American people just don't seem to matter.

    How do we stop this crazy train? This run away railroading? This inevitable train wreck?

    Let's talk process. In order to act, we must know what is happening. It is fun to debate all these issues that evoke such passion, but if it all comes crumbling down does any of it really matter?

    Every two years, politicians lie to get what they need ~ our vote ~ in order to get what they want ~ our money. How do we stop it? Can we stop it?

    The answer to me is so simple .... which is why it is so difficult.

    Let's explore the potential power that WE the people actually have if we could only find some way to unite for a common cause against the current state of American politics.
