    How to Reduce US Unemployment?

    in Politics

    It is absolutely ridiculous to hear government and business leaders take about unemployment like there is not immediate solution. The job creation, job creators lies is a scam. Unemployment people don't need meetings from elected officials. Meetings where the give notes to the media, and the media pass along their lies. Spread the lies regarding why there are not jobs. Fact is there are no jobs because the managers are not hiring. Managers are not hiring because the CEOs are on strike against US workers. CEOs are on strike because elected officials, the keepers of the gates for citizens, have been paid and have signed pledges giving allegiance to corporations.

    Episode 00005: This Is Just Another Test. Nothing To Hear Here.

    in Entertainment

    Seriously, I'm just testing out a new pair of headphone/microphone combo headset. I had been consistently unhappy with the quality of myself during these podcasts. My guests sound like they're in studios whereas I sound like I'm gagged & muffled in a garbage can in a warehouse on an island in the middle of nowhere. So, I'll just be rambling on about nothing as I test this headset for playback. Enjoy my pointless rambling.

    Honouring War resistors

    in Politics

    Memorial Day and Veteran's Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran's Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.


    Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters.  Dylan Matthew VOX


    Today, I will again lift a pint of ale in memory of my three friends and their comrades who died in Vietnam.


    I honor them without honoring the aggressive and unjust war in which they fought.I don't know what their motivation was to join the military, maybe it was simply that the draft gave them no choice, but it really doesn't matter. What I do know for sure is that their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Sam Webb

    How Important is One Soul?

    in Motivation

    We talk about people a lot, yet we talk about souls very little. It's a huge leap in thought, in feeling and justifying we are doing at time to one another when we call each other souls and not people. What difference does it mean in everyday life what we call each other and how we view each other and how we treat one another? Do we reduce ourselves by simply saying I am a person and is saying I am a person only half the story? Crazy thought, yet a huge shift in how we build our lives and the relationships that we have in our lives. Tune in and Join in on the Conversation Tomorrow Morning at 5:30 AM, PST!
