    State Sovereignty: Ron Calzone Sues Missouri

    in Politics Conservative

    It's Not About Right and Left. It's About Right and Wrong!


    Shall Empire or Liberty Be Sought?


    We will begin our evening with an in-depth revisit to the Convention of States. How is it going? What is wrong and right with the current movement? What could we do to make this more successful?


    Then, we will be joined by very special guest Ron Calzone. Ron is a great friend and leader in Missouri's Liberty movement. He's recently filed a suit against the State for passing laws that contained many subjects (omnibus bills) in direct violation of the Missouri Constitution. Want to discuss this with Ron? Call and participate at 347-677-1835.


    It all happens live tonight (Saturday) at 7PM.

    The What If Show featuring Blossom Benedict & Stephanie Richardson

    in Self Help

    Igniting Your Creative Genius


    What have you longed to accomplish in your life that you have yet to achieve? What have you desired to have that still seems out of reach? Blossom Benedict, Facilitator of Right Voice for You and How to Get Everything You Want Without Working that Hard and Stephanie Richardson, Artist and Facilitator of Beyond the Creativity Trap are joining forces to bring you the show on Igniting Your Creative Genius, how to create everything you’ve been longing for and access the energy to fuel a more creative life. 


    Change your to do list from a list of chores to a generative tool… 


    Does your to do list feels like it's running your life into the ground instead of creating and generating the life and living that you'd truly like to have? If so, what if your to do list could actually generate more for you?


    Accessing your creative energy when you’d rather take a nap…


    We all have busy lives. Sometimes the last thing we want to do is add more to the list of things requiring our attention. But if you've gotten to the end of your day and not yet gotten to you, how do you access the creativity energy to create instead of slumping on the couch and turning on the TV? We'll share some of our own secrets for turning the energy on... when you'd rather say good night!


    Creating and showing up when you’re worried about what people will think… 


    We've got a few tricks up our sleeves to diminish the power that the monsters of fear have over your creations and set you free to create more than you ever thought was possible!

    32 For 32: Kansas City Chiefs

    in Sports

    The Kansas City Chiefs were yet another strange team in 2014, going from 0-2 to 7-3, then laying an egg to Oakland (even though they scored 20 points) & ultimately falling out of the AFC playoff picture. But the big story was safety Eric Berry's health. After that loss to the Raiders, he received an X-ray which revealed a mass in his chest believed to be lymphoma. He was placed on the non-football illness list, ending his season. A month later, Berry was confirmed to have Hodgskin's lymphoma. He has begun treatment & many of us are wishing him a strong recovery. My prayers have been & will be w/ him during this time. The Chiefs have made some moves during the off-season, bringing in free agents such as wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (reuniting w/ Jason Avant from Philadelphia) & safety Tyvon Branch. The pressure continues to be on head coach Andy Reid. He's been expected to make a Super Bowl run w/ this team & that hasn't happened. & he has yet to win a Super Bowl, pinning him on the list of one of the greatest coaches in league history to not accomplish the feat. Some fans have started to lost patience. Something's gotta give, right? I hope for the sake of Reid that this team finally turns to corner in 2015. It's been a long time coming since the franchise's last Super Bowl triumph (Super Bowl III), but Arrowhead remains one of the toughest places to play of opponents & as long as you have great fans supporting your team, you'll always have a shot to accomplish wins, divison titles, & maybe even a Lombardi trophy. This team still has work to do, but it looks like they're heading in the right direction. How far can & will they go? We'll discuss that as well as Eric Berry in our next installment of "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Friday evening @ 6:30pm on Blog Talk Radio. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.

    Princeton University: US is No Longer a Democracy!

    in Politics Progressive

    Recent study at Princeton determined that the US is no longer has the critical elements necessary to qualify as a democratic republic. No, voting alone just does not do it.


    The US is dominated by a rich and powerful elite which is called an oligarchy.


    So concludes a recent study --  http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1537592714001595 


     -- by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page.


    This is not news, you say. Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Here's how they explain it:


    Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.


    In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power.


    In the next two hours your host, Bob Kirkconnell, author of American Heart of Darkness, will explore this startling fact, and the ramifications. Hey, call in and tell us what you think!
