SORT BY Relevancy
One of the avenues for crime victims to have a voice within the courts is through victim impact statements.
Shattered Lives Radio talks with two champions of victims’ rights, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and attorney Michelle S. Cruz, who is serving as this week’s co-host.
Host, Donna Gore, offers her personal knowledge of the subject as well as offering something new to the table, a Victim Impact Assistance Service.

On the September 3, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Several celebrities have had nudes of them released that were obtained by people hacking their accounts. Some people are suggesting that keeping your pictures in "the cloud" is not a safe way to store such pictures and that such people are just "asking for it". Others suggest that taking such pictures altogether are them asking for it. Others see hypocrisy in the treatment of female celebrities and male celebrities. I will cut through the hype and give my feelings on why some scenarios are different than the others and also explain why some of this blame being placed on the persons who took those pictures is just another example of victim blaming. Victim blaming just victimizes the victim.
More victim blaming comes at the hands of Cee Lo Green. After being accused of raping a person who was drugged, he had the gaul to suggest that sex with an unconcious person is not rape. Seriously. Forget you...
Another example where a victim is again victimized is the case of Nick Olivas, a male in Arizona who at 15 had non consensual (read rape) sexual relations with a 20 year old woman. As a 15 year old he could not consent to sex with the 20 year old but yet he is financially responsible for it? That makes zero sense.
Finally, I will discuss the ruling in Louisiana today that upheld the Louisiana ban on same sex marriage. Again, Louisiana bucks national trends to the detrement of its citizenry. Louisiana will eventually be forced to recognize marriage equality, but it will be dragged there kicking and screaming.
Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week and more at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.

We will be rescheduling today's guest, Danné Montague-King, author of The Maybelline Prince, due to illness.
Today's topic instead will be one that I have been asked about a great deal from clients and friends - How is it I am so positive and enthusiatic each day? Well, I could say its the booze, but that would send a paramedic to my house:))))) So I simply respond, it is my CHOICE....as it is yours. So the question is, do you make it so, or are you one like so many, who is more comfortable playing the victim!

NATIONSTAR MORTGAGE ILLEGAL ABUSIVE BUSINESS PRACTICES VICTIM RIGHTS COMPLAINT TARGETS CONSUMER PROTECTIONS LAWS AND ACTS (FTC/CFPB/DODD-FRANK ACT/RESPA/DOJ)
"the daily complaint"
Every weekday we answer client complaints on The Daily Complaint to provide direction and resources for both the person complaining as well as other consumers experiencing similar issues whether it be mortgage fraud, loan servicing escrow issues, loan modification runarounds or denials, short sale refusals, deed in lieu negotiations and credit card debt collector abuses and fraud violations.
I routinely look for posts to answer in hopes that it will not only bring optimism to those homeowners and borrowers in distress but also some basic information to assist in fighting the banks that are "too big to fail" like Bank of America and Citi but yet don't appreciate the bailout that we provided in their time of need. The debt collectors like Ocwen and Nationstar are simply just piranhas but they can be beat at their own game too just like the big banks can be defeated.
We are committed to answering consumer complaints and addressing everyday credit and debt issues on The Daily Complaint and I thank you for your continued support!
We hope you enjoy the Show...

Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal - Call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. Today's guest is Brenda Anderson, a woman who spent her young years in Texas correctional facilities after protecting herself against three men who tried to rob her after watching her cash a check. Brenda was openly lesbian at the time and feels that her prosecution for self-defense was based on her gay lifestyle rather than on her shooting one of the men. She was also outspoken for human rights of prisoners as an inmate. Brenda's horrific torture as a U.S. inmate was recounted in an article in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog at http://dogjusticeformentallyill.blogspot.com/2014/10/aimi-vs-usa-b-anderson-claimant.html
Brenda Anderson is one of the claimants in "AIMI vs. USA", which will present up to 100 cases of discrimination, brutality and wrongful deaths against mentally ill Americans in International Court in 2015.

If you missed the first two shows, you will have another opportunity to see it Friday, December 5 at 7 pm at CSU Main Classroom Auditorium. Here's part of what you can expect, "Laura Cowan, A 27 yr old woman with two children is devastated by the loss of her husband,
family businesses and their home. Forced to live on the street and in shelters she is blindly lured into a life of horror in a rural Californian house run by polygamist Mansa Musa Muhummed." This is just part of the storyline for this dramatic stage play about human trafficking. Tune as Mr. Yancey is joined live in the studio by the writer, director and producer of this stage play, Joey Ruffin, as well as a few of the cast members from the play. They will be talking about the stage in more detail, as well as domestic violence from the abuser's stand point and the victim's standpoint.
Attitude Is Everything
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on my life. Attitude, to me is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstance, than failure, than success, than what other people think, say, or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home.
The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past; we cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me, and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... We are in charge of our attitudes.
