    Co-Dependency with Jef Gazley

    in Relationships

    Therapist Jef Gazley willl be our special guest speaker on this rebroadcast show. His statement on Co-Dependency is this: The definition of co-dependence is the tendency to desperately attempt to take care of other people to such an extent that the needs of the caretaker are ignored. Codependency was first identified by working with alcoholic families in the early 1980’s while noticing how the mates of chemically dependent people parented their partners. Codependency was first thought to occur only as a reaction to someone in the family being addicted. It is now known that co-dependence also results from growing up in a dysfunctional family of any type. These families often emotionally abandon their children and shame them. These children react by trying to become perfect, control everything, and “fix” their parents and later their spouse and children in the hope that they will be loved and gain approval.

    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.

    Politics Done Right - Is welfare for the rich the same as welfare for the poor?

    in Politics Progressive

    Today I will be exploring whether welfare for the rich has the same implications as welfare for the poor. Last night Bill Maher said the following.


    “Republicans are right,” Bill Maher said “Not having to work and getting free money does mess people up. That’s why they love to talk about work, the virtue of work, the right to work, workfare, the dignity that comes with work.


    In fact there is only one thing conservatives believe in more than work. And that is the God given right of rich people to leave all their money to their kids so they never have to work a day in their lives. …


    I mean think about it. Republicans are on board with taxing people’s income, their investments, property, food, gas, booze, cigarettes, everything you buy, even your retirement. Those are all OK. But the one thing that must remain tax free is when money falls from the sky and lands in the lap of [explicative] Hilton. …


    If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world. They’ve never known the dignity of work either. Shouldn’t we be helping them by taxing inheritance at one hundred percent?”

    Co-Dependency with Jennifer Masters

    in Relationships

    "Author and international healer, Jennifer Elizabeth Masters says, "Everyone at some point has issues with codependency and addiction." Underneath it all are feelings of not being good enough. Focusing on ourselves with a soft focus instead of beating ourselves up changes our perspective. We are very hard on ourselves. Being compassionate, loving and tender with ourselves is what The Divine wants from us. It does no one any good to be self deprecating. Self love is the key to healing all emotional suffering and pain. Here is her website -  http://jenniferelizabethmasters.com/

    Racism, Removing the Blinders placed by Democrats

    in Radio

    For decades, the Black and Hispanic communities have been targeted by Race pimps and Democrats eager to hold on to power and control over the people.  Making promise after promise, offering more and more money, these people have successfully created a culture of dependency and unrealistic expectation.  From our Education system to the Justice Department's attempt to take over State's jurisdiction, we have allowed ourselves to become slaves to the government.  Some people don't want to remove the blinders because it's easier to ignore reality.  We'll talk about this and more on my last Thursday Night program.  Call in to share your thoughts...
