    Sentencing Reform

    in Politics

    "While old habits are hard to break, these numbers show that a dramatic shift is underway in the mind-set of prosecutors handling nonviolent drug offenses. I believe we have taken steps to institutionalize this fairer, more practical approach such that it will endure for years to come,This is a topic that ought to be engaged in by our nation, informed by the experiences we see in Colorado, Washington. "There is, I think, a legitimate debate to be had on both sides of that question on where marijuana should be in terms of scheduling."

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - The Need for Sentencing Reform

    in US Government

    Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.


    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

    Chew the Phat Kewl Khat: Peter Ferrara From Forbes On Welfare Reform!

    in Politics

    Can welfare reform end poverty in America? Peter Ferrara believes it can. Peter is a great article writer and a great contributer to Forbes! Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.
