    Is The State Of Black America's Union Strong? Black America in Obama's SOTU

    in Current Events

    President Obama declared that the state of the union in America is strong in his last State of the Union address, after he pointed to several examples of progress during his tenure.  We wonder...do those successes reflect the realities of the state of Black America?


    We will discuss this in three critical areas:  employment, education, and law enfrocement/justice.


    Bring your big cup and make yourself comfortable.  We have a big pot of unapologetic truth to share!

    New York State of Mind:Denial

    in Politics

    Let's talk about what it is really like to live in the belly of Americas authoritarian beast. Let's work out the problems and move to solution based political discourse. Have you had enough of the politics of Ignorance and Tyranny?


    Do you wish to continue to be treated like a child & talked down to like an infant while you PAY ALL THE BILLS?


    Let's Flip the Script on them Together as We expose the hilarity and tragedy of unintended and pointless, emotion based legislation.


    IN an environment free of Global Hype let's offer up solutions and direction for a better world.


    Lets have a little give and take...in that NY state of mind...I invite you will be part of the solution. You are free to listen in and continue to pray for Americas re surgance, or you may join in! Lets make it happen together!

    I start taking your calls 9:10 Eastern tomorrow night.

    What do you think of the curent state of NY's "State of Mind"? Call in and state it for yourself...We can agree to disagree. Al are welcome and All callers will be treated with respect. That is how we will hear the most creative and innovative ideas. Not berepeating OUR selves in an ECHO chamber, but by letting others thoughts be aired and considred. All are welome, as their are no thought NAZI's on this network.

    Exception: If you are calling to bash another caller, you will not be aired. You wanna bash someone? You bash me or the dragon breathing fire on all of us.Taxing our towns and villages to the ground! Warning: Areas to be avoided!  

    I prefer the "positive politics of solutions" be joyfully on your mind as you doze off dreaming of a better world...

    Chatlight is the first light made specifically for video chatting that’s rechargeable. Chatlight fits almost all of your devices and has fully adjustable lighting brightness and direction. Its bulbs last 50,000 hours and battery lasts 90 minutes on a single charge. Chatlight mounts to your favorite smartphone, tablet, or laptop to beautifully illuminate all of your video chats and selfies!

If there is insufficient lighting, even a good lens will battle to find focus and clarity. A good lens does not fix bad quality light.
