    Should The Community Pay A Salary To Its Full Time Political Activists?

    in Women

    Organizing voter registration drives, holding mass meetings, raising funds, contacting the media, passing out literature, even sending out mass e-mails in order to organize people for mass political action, requires the time and resources to work without the pressure of wondering how ones bills will be paid. These are activities necessary to change conditions for a community, and yet, the activists who make things happen are often stuggling to survive themselves, which makes it unlikely that efforts will be successful to change conditions for those who most need a change. Why do we expect activists to volunteer their time and work for free, when those who are in control of government resources get paid a handsome salary to live comfortably while they maintain the status quo? Should there be a fund that community members pay into which would support acticvist who lobby and organize for better conditions for the people? Or are such organizations already in existence, but merely need more financial contributions form those they consistently help? How do we change the thinking of those who are in need of better public service so that they understand "freedom ain't free"? Which organizations do people trust enough to invest enough money into that can hire those who are dedicated to working for better conditions for all? The Urban League? The NAACP? The National Action Network? The Rainbow PUSH Coalition? Your local block club? Your own religious organization? Or something else? Would you help pay the salary for full time political activists who work for your interests?

    Seahawks salary cap 101 with Davis Hsu on Field Gulls Radio

    in Football

    We're joined tonight by FieldGulls.com's resident cap expert on the Seattle Seahawks. He asked if he could come on to bust some common myths, and drop some additional knowledge on everyone.


    How is the offseason salary cap calculated?


    Ever wished you knew a quick trick to calculate your teams cap on a napkin?


    Davis is going to answer questions like these, along with going into detail on terms like these:


     



    "Dead money"
    "Cap versus cash"
    "Pro-ration"
    "Staggered contracts"


    There's a ton of information coming on tonights show, so get out your notepads and get ready to fill your brains with some of that salary cap stew Davis has been cooking up for a few years now.


     


    Don't be surprised if we hit you with a few of those gems from Pete Prisco on Russell Wilson from last week either, time permitting.

    “Why am I always living paycheck to paycheck even when I get salary increases?"

    in Business

    This episode is part of our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series! This episode is, “Why am I always living paycheck to paycheck even when I get salary increases?”


    Budgets?
    Be cautious about budgets. People may create “ideal” (or fantasy) budgets. The goal is attaining and sustaining financial independence so you need to increase your income (and income producing assets) and lower your expenses. 


    The title of this episode states that there is already more income yet they are still paycheck to paycheck. Thus, we should immediately focus on expenses. Remember, the path to financial dependance (aka “broke”) is to spend more money when you earn more money. Instead, you must simultaneously work to increase income (or revenue) while decreasing expenses. Focusing on decreasing expenses, you must do the opposite of the inclination (i.e., I got a raise so I can get the bigger satellite package, etc.). 


    Money Days?
    This is my term for when I go through all of my expenses and cut costs (or increase my money that I have possession of). I take all of my required expenses (utilities, etc.) and my desired expenses (cell phone, etc.). I usually take 1-3 of the total list on each Money Day and do the following:
    -Call the vendor.
    -Have a timid demeanor.
    -State, “I am not able to afford this. Will you please help me lower my bill?”
    -I tell the customer service agent that I don’t want to cancel my service but I am just unable to afford it. If they do not make any acceptable reductions, I will then go to the cancellation department (usually an agent trained in retention of customers who will be able to offer better savings to me).
    -Add up all of the money that I have saved each Money Day!



    I have paid myself money that I was giving away and I am now moving closer to attaining and/ or maintaining financial independence!

  • Who U Rock Wit? Cosign or cut off; no fence riding.

    in Entertainment

    Who You Rock Wit?


    As life in America becomes more and more perilous, we have to be sure that our village is functioning, and secure. Who You Rock With will set standards against faking. Cosign or cut off; no fence riding. Don't let our only narratives be from the lips of those that hate us. Upset the setup. You are who you rock with.


    Where do you STAND?
    If I'm rude to a server or customer service provider some place, they have to swallow it and be professional because in business, the customer is always right.
    So explain to me how is it this cop gets away with murdering a teenage boy whose family pays taxes; therefore his salary in part. 
    Are we not patrons who deserve the same respect? WHY did Mike Brown have to be MURDERED for whatever level of UNARMED rudeness he may have displayed to a heavily armed public servant?


    Then we have this ongoing feud between Iggy and Azealia in which the actual issue continues to completely elude Iggy and her supporters. Those ugly conversations nobody wants to have are erupting in ways that yield no resolve. So before anymore blood is spilled let's initiate the talks that will lead to necessary corrective action; but first you have to decide... who you rock with infinitely.

    The Erosion of the Constitution and Bill of Rights in America

    in Education

    Amendment I:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Edward Snowden)


    Amendment V:  No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger;... (Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki).


    Amendment VI: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury ....  (Patriot Act & NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act)


    Amendment XXVII:  Prohibits elected officials from voting into effect their own pay raise. Ironically, the "Ethics Reform Act of 1989" stipulates that automatic salary increases will be granted, unless the congress holds a special hearing to vote against giving themselves a pay raise! This means that no matter how poorly they perform, they get a raise, and although it's unconstitutional, they have an "ethics law" which violates the constitution and gives them an automatic pay raise despite the unconstitutionality of the law.


    Amendment IV:  The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    Modern Day Tent Making. A Pastor Finds Income in Interesting Places.

    in Finance

    Pastor Tony Davis is a husband, father of four, pastor and entrepreneur; so people are sometimes confused about what he does.


    With a small, but growing congregation with Glad Tidings Church of God in Christ, the church is unable to pay Pastor Davis a salary allowing him to dedicate full-time to the church, yet, even so, the church still has full-time demands. Dedicated to the gospel, yet still needing to meet the needs of his family, Tony knew another j-o-b would only pull him further away from his family, the needs of his church, and time to prepare for Sunday's message. 


    Tent making is a more common than we know, and Pastor Tony supplements his income with his entrepreneurial adventures.  Join me as I chat with Tony
