    "The Destruction of Public Education" on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    Our Public Education is being destroyed.  It's as simple as that. Common Core, Race to the Top, Charter School Disinformation and Money, Money, Money.  In New York, a battle rages that dates back to misappropriation of Public School Funds, Cuomo trying to cut Public Education and give money to charter schools and, of course, Common Core.  Created by businessmen and shoved down the throats of parents and teachers with a focus on testing, Common Core is the cherry on top of the continued push to turn Public Education into a business. Joining me today is Teacher/Activist Marla Kilfoyle. Marla, a manager of Badass Teacher Association has been a parent advocate on Long Island in such groups as Parents and Teachers Against Common Core and LI Opt-Out. Marla has been a teacher in the Social Studies Department at Oceanside High School (NY) for 27 years. Also joining us Kenneth Hughes, public school teacher for 28 years who is watching the school where he teaches suffer from the budget shortfalls manipulated over the past decade and is looking more budget cuts direct in the face.  These issues in New York and throughout the country are as important as any in our society. So grab a cup of coffee and join us.  Longtime Activist, Coffee Party USA Board of Director & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's show "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio airs Sunday Morning at 8:30AM. Advocating engagement Bobby points out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so. Money in Politics, the Political Party Machine and partisan blind allegiance is on full display as he advocates against the erosion of Constitutional Protections in the name of corruption & tyranny. "If we focused on following the Constitution we would solve many of the ills of our society.”

    "28 Years As A Police Officer" a conversation on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee"

    in Politics

    The discussion about Police in our society has changed.  The Militarization of our local police departments, daily reports of police brutality, lack of transparency and police policy that undermines Constitutional Protections,  With so much negative happening and being reported the larger "positives" are forgotten.  Like our society the majority of people who join the Police do so for the right reasons. Serve and protect. A life of sacrifice and peril. A life of good works. With this in mind I introduce you to Stefan Komar of the NYPD. A person who understands history, activism and the good fight.  The son of a hero member of the Polish Underground during World War II. A man who loves his work and his community and the law. Mr. Komar will not be speaking on behalf of the NYPD in any way, but for himself. Please join us for a frank discussion about his choices,observations. good works and beliefs during his 28 year career. Have a cup of coffee with a real Police Officer.  Long time Activist, Coffee Party Newsroom Editor & Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's new show on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM.

  • "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" "Art Killing Apathy" Founder Stands Up

    in Politics

    As discussed in a feature article in SOMA depending who you speak with, she may be the front woman in a heavy rock band, a writer for several magazines and blogs or organizer of political rallies. Yet, one thing Eleanor Goldfield is not is apathetic. Having witnessed the social juxtapositions of growing up in both Sweden & North Carolina and inspired by her socially conscious parents to stand up for what you believe, Goldfield has an insatiable drive to use her voice to challenge political corruption and social inequalities. In 2010, with friend and fellow musician Brian Marshak, Goldfield formed the band Rooftop Revolutionaries as a way to express social and political messages against the sound of hard, driving rock music. "Art has the unique ability to connect with people on the deepest of levels without feeling like an intrusion. People open themselves up to this art, music, photography, and then – they think. React. Do Something." Please join us tonight. Long time Activist, Coffee Party Newsroom Editor and Radio Host, Bobby Rodrigo's new show on "I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee" on Coffee Party USA Radio every Tuesday at 8:30PM.   Advocating engagement and coalitions Bobby points out that the Constitution is the Rule of Law in our land and why it should remain so.

    Politics Done Right - The killing of David Hooks by Georgia police must be told

    in Politics

    The epidemic is on going. Sadly because our news media only covers a narrative that suits there current frame other misdeeds by police go unreported or marginally reported. Bobby Rodrigo, host of Coffee Party Radio Show "I take Liberty with my Coffee" brought this story to me. I almost blew my top. How did I miss it. I told Bobby that I would blog the story. The blog post "The execution of this White brother, David Hooks, by police need coverage too" is getting very good coverage.


    Today we are doing a combined show. We will start "Politics Done Right w/Egberto Willies" for the first hour and then merge into "I take Liberty with my Coffee w/Bobby Rodrigo." Bobby will be doing the show directly from Dublin, Georgia where he will be attending the "Rally For Justice For David Hooks."
