When you marry, you inherit your spouse family. This includes all the dynamics that comes along with inlaws. Some inlaws are hands off but then there are some inlaws that fully involved in their child marriage. How do you handle meddling inlaws, friends, and extended family?
Where/how do you draw the line between being committed to the "team" (your marriage) and being considerate of others involved? Or once you get married is how THEY feel irrelevant?
In Florida alone, 26 children and teens have been killed in Stand Your Ground cases. Most notably, the cases of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis have caused an uproar across the nation, with their killers using the Stand Your Ground law successfully in defeating murder convictions. While Marissa Alexander, a victim of domestic violence, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot. Marissa is now facing 60 years in prison after her appeal was granted and she was offered a retrial. Is the Stand Your Ground law racially bias? Does it give people a license to kill? Could your son be next? Let's discuss...
As the country reels from the outcome of the Jordan Davis case and national conversations abound on the need to repeal Stand Your Ground laws, the Florida Legislature is steadily working to expand the law. We are left stunned and bewildered as we see ill-conceived bills on the threatened use of force hurtle towards passage with bipartisan support. Over the past two weeks, both houses of the Legislature have voted overwhelmingly to expand Stand Your Ground by approving CS/CS/HB 89 and SB 448, the so-called “Warning Shot Bills.” http://rattlernews.tallahassee.com/article/20140312/OPINION05/303120003/My-View-Don-t-make-bad-Stand-Your-Ground-law-worsehttp://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/criminal-justice/is-there-racial-bias-in-stand-your-ground-laws/ The talk where facts matters

Scripture Text: Luke 4: 1-15
Key Verses: Luke 4:1-5
And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days He did eat nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward hungered.
And the devil said to Him, If You be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
And the devil, taking Him up into an high mountain, showed to Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
The Interpreters team will look at recent happenings with Florida's stand your ground laws. Within this report the team will provide the basic knowledge about the law. During the blog talk report political pundits will be tuning in to weigh in on the discussion.
The Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis cases arguably highlight, for many, perceived inequities in the application of the Stand Your Ground (SYG) defense that is now law in 23 states. Join the Clarkie Connection for an impassioned and fascinating discussion of these and other related cases, the historical and cultural foundations of the SYG laws, and the myriad actions presently being taken by fellow citizens to hold accountable the policymakers responsible for the enactment of these laws, and effect the repeal of their injust provisions.
Ever since the death of Trayvon Martin, and the subsequent not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman, Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law has come under fire. Many are advocating for its repeal in the state of Florida. The general consensus among advocates of repeal is that the law's application is racially biased; and, that it is essentially a license to kill..As you can imagine, the debate has been drawn along political lines, and has forced many to take sides. The question, however, is whether we are properly informed .
On the eve of a major protest of Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law, we explore the legislation, and how it has been misinterpreted largely by the media. Joining us in this discussion is Andrew F. Branca, an attorney who's specialty is self-defense law. He is also the author of, The Law of Self Defense.

Please join me on Friday night at 8pm EST for a compelling interview with Claudia Ackley. Claudia had a sighting a few months back while hiking with some friends. Claudia's account speaks to a smaller looking creater, with hairy features, dropping out of a tree, and running away on two lets. Although the encounter was over in seconds, Claudia feels very strongly that she saw what appeared to be a baby Sasquatch.
Similar sightings have been reported in the past, which makes me excited to bring this account to you. Hopefully you will enjoy the program. If you have any feedback, hit me up on Bigfoot Ground Zero on FB, or directly at email@example.com. And as always...thanks for listening!
