    Last Word

    in Politics

    Today was the last day for oral arguments before the Supreme Court for 2014 2015 term.
    Oklahoma’s hasty, non-science-driven process for selecting midazolam as the first drug in its three-drug protocol did not cohere with its solemn duty to ensure its punishments are lawful,” a brief signed by OCU President Robert Henry (Glossip v. Gross)Suppose that we said we’re going to burn you at the stake, but before we do, we’re going to use an anesthetic of completely unknown properties and unknown effects,” said Justice Kagan

    Why are people who served time for Crime, still paying the price when freed

    in Music

    I think convicted felons should still have the right to vote because they are still affected by the choices of politicians.Felons are still affected by laws made by politicians. Laws could be made about the court system or anything else that might have an impact on their lives. Since they are still a part of our democratic society, it would be wrong to take away the right to choose the people affecting them.


    If you pay your dues you are like everyone else.


    Yes. If time is served then they have the right. They paid their dues. Just because someone has a felony doesn't make them a bad person, well in some cases it does and they won't get out of prison so they don't count. People make mistakes, you ever heard of wrong place wrong time?


    Some 15 to 20 million people have been arrested on drug charges and subjected to the tender mercies of the criminal justice system in the past two decades. But, thanks to congressional drug warriors, the punishments drug offenders face often extend far beyond the prison walls or the parole officer's office. A number of federal laws ostensibly aimed at reducing drug use block people with drug convictions from gaining access to federal benefits and services. These laws have a disproportionate impact on society's most vulnerable or marginalized members -- the poor, people of color, and women with children -- and in some cases, do not even require that a person actually be convicted of a drug offense to be punished.

    Scandal! - Next Fan Up 4/4/15

    in Football

    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?


    Offseason thoughts and throwing shade in this "scandalous" episode of Next Fan Up!

    Going back to Cali - Next Fan Up 3/28/15

    in Football

    PodVader and the SuperFans talk about the NFL's plans to head back to L.A.  Jarrod Murphy - Rams, Monty Ressler - Raiders and Ken Priest - Chargers hash that out and why the offseason all of a sudden got really quiet. 


    Stan Kroenke seems to have the strongest plan, the owners seem to be backing Dean Spanos the most and would the NFL actually give the Davis family the keys to the shiny new toy in the 2nd largest television market?


    Plus, what if Philip Rivers is available for a trade?  What would they be willing to take Tom Brady in exchange for a few draft choices?


    The SuperFans take a look at their teams' offseasons and what positions they hope are addressed most in the upcoming Draft.


    Rules changes and punishments for cheating in here too.


    We want to hear from you and we still need a Cardinals SuperFan - nextfanup@gmail.com

    "The Government-Made Child"

    in Lifestyle

    SPONSORED BY MARK PITTMAN--Endless comparisons to modern-day youth versus the youth of its previous generations can be made to show vast differences--almost complete opposites of the other, in fact, and not for the better. Many changes in society and the mindsets of their elders can be attibuted to the vast changes, but one change that has been the master wrecking ball change has been the increase of government interference into the household and the virtual removal of parental rights. Almost all of the government's brilliant changes have fast-tracked our children's entry into adulthood without properly preparing them for the transition OR actually legally cerifying them as adults. The laws are their own contradiction, stripping parents of the right to raise their child, yet holding the parents responsible for the messy situations the children under 18 get into because the government gave them a free pass around their parents' rules. For society on a whole, it's an injustice to a child's well-balanced upbringing--for Black America, fast-tracking a teen's development justifies the pre-conceived dehumanization of our children's innocence and subjects them to accountabilities they shouldn't truly own, and allows the extreme punishments to be rendered by a biased society. With the new-age "not-really-emancipated-emancipated child", do parents have to step back and let their child go the hard road? Or do we fight all the way to the legal age?

    Parenting Your Challenging Child

    in Parents

    Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).

    SERIOUSIDE OF THE JRIL SHOW

    in Radio

    Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning we will discuss the following topics:


    SEGMENT 1:  IS THIS A GOOD IDEA?


     President Raul Castro declared victory for the Cuban Revolution on Saturday in a wide-ranging speech, thanking US President Obama for “a new chapter” while also reaffirming that restored relations with the United States did not mean the end of Communist rule in Cuba.  Was this a good idea by the POTUS?


     


    SEGMENT 2:  IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME…


    Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.  We knew this would eventually happen.  We will talk about it.


    SEGMENT 3:  PROTECTING THEIR OWN!


    A new bill passed last week in Illinois would make it a felony to secretly tape any “private conversations," with steeper punishments for those surreptitiously recording the police. Critics of the proposed law claim it would scare citizens from recording interactions with law enforcement, following a number of high-profile police killings caught on camera. Is this true?  We will discuss!

    Your Child Is Not Your “Friend” laying down the ground rules

    in Parents

    One of the most challenging aspects of raising a teen is setting fair ground rules that your teen will respect and obey. Teenagers are inherently rebellious and could engage in unsettling behavior without a concise set of rules from their parents or guardians. It is imperative that you set specific rules and consequences while clearly communicating them to your teen. Conveying what the specific consequences will be can help you avoid arguments about any arbitrary punishments that you devised after the rule was already broken. Here are a few other tips you can follow when setting your rules:


    Be Consistent - Choosing to ignore a broken rule will cause accountability issues with your child and lead them to believe they can pick and choose which rules to follow. 


    Set Rules on Communication - Smart parents set guidelines on when a teen needs to contact them. For instance, if they have permission to be at a friend's house, they must call for permission to go to another hang-out spot. Also, it could be beneficial to require them to always pick up calls or return text messages from you on their cellular phone.


    Get Them Involved - If possible, make your child feel part of the decision making process by negotiating different rules and consequences with them.


    Make Yourself Available - Teens should never be afraid to call you for a ride or advice if they are in an unpleasant situation. Reward Good Behavior - Positive reinforcement can be a wonderful deterrent to your child breaking the rules.


    Possession is the Same as Using - Implement a zero tolerance rule about a child having substances that are illegal or not allowed in your home. This will avoid the "it belongs to a friend" excuse and avoid the slippery slope of letting a child think its okay for them or their friends to possess a troublesome substance.
