SORT BY Relevancy
Good morning! Today, on The Meter we will discuss the looming sequestration crisis as the March 1 deadline approaches. 85 billion in budget cuts are threatening to have an impact on jobs and the economy. As republicans demand more cuts, the President warns of police, air traffic controllers, and first responders losing their jobs! Fear tactic or fact? Please join us at 10 AM. The call in number is 714-242-6214. Your input is essential!
Matt and Jamie are back. Tonight's episode will cover the upcoming sequestration and the media hype surrounding the relatively small cuts. Also covered will be the (il)legitimacy of borders and immigration laws and some exciting new technologies on the horizon. We will also take your calls.
This week I will focus on the Budget, thew so called Sequestration effects, Congress and the President. Where are they heading? Will they actually sit down and talk?
An update on our attempts to work with Gun Control Lobbiests, The NRA and both sides of the aisile.
News, Society and the Medias' role in it all!
This and more Every Friday!
It's been a busy week, folks. The government--yep, we're using a collective term there cuz they're ALL dysfunctional--sits on the royal governing throne ... & doesn't govern. And what happens? We fall in a sinkhole.
But then, a sinkhole comes about in Florida & sadly, a man loses his life because he literally dropped into it. His only "crime" was being in bed when this happened. Was it an "act of God?" An act of man vs nature? Do you realize how many of these happen in any given year? There have already been no less than nine in the US alone this year. And it's only early March.
Hypothetical sinkhole vs literal sinkhole.
And an elderly woman collapses in an independent living facility. A nurse calls 911 but after being instructed to perform CPR, she refuses, saying the facility's "policy" doesn't allow her to do so. She can only call and stay with the downed individual until the emergency personnel arrives.
What?! This is an ethical sinkhole. And someone done fell in deep.
It's been a busy few weeks in the news, folks. Join Debbie Barth and Linda Alexander, the Three Wise Girls, as we talk about Sequestration, Sinkholes, & CPR ... & whatever else shows up on the radar. Join us in the chat room or call in at 347-994-3835, 1:30 PM EST, for a fast-&-furious 30 minutes of reality internet radio. As usual, we're shootin' from the hip, & we never know exactly what we'll say, except to say we definitely have an opinion. We're sure you do, too. Won't you join us?

NACUBO'S LIZ CLARK DIRECTOR OF CONGRESSIONAL AFFAIRS ON HOW THE SEQUESTRATION IMPACTS UNIVERSITIES ON THE CAMPUS LEVEL BEYOND AID TO STUDENTS AND GIVES AN UPDATE ON THE OUTLOOK ON THE HILL.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner made some utterances today regarding the imminent and fast-approaching SEQUESTRATION. . The "Boner" iterated that things would be pretty bleak under that scenario and no one has really had to experience it before - the point being, it's not the time to undergo the unknowable and highly likely unbearable.

Really, are the large corporations, these military contractors, really going to let sequestration happen? I don't think so! There is just too much big business will lose if the sequester occurs for. I say the Republicans are bluffing! If I'm wrong and the sequester occurs, I will contend that the Tea Party has gone rogue. After all, they are already out of control! They are letting blind ideology lead them! Without consequence! Totally clueless to the economics of their actions! They play with the power that is beyond their comprehension! Sequestration helps no constituents, whether on the left or the right, or a large or small corporation. No one wins and everyone loses!
ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!
In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy. Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:
“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence. Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story. It is the story of grass. The story of green. The color of hope.”
“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”
“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists. Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”
“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”
“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health. It’s here.”
Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.
