Today's show is an interview that was done on Dr. Laura a few years ago.
Dr. Laura agrees there are things worth whining about! A certain amount of whining allows for some venting of reasonable pain, disappointment, fear, frustration, or frank rage. However, staying stuck in whining mode can become a life-long problem. This is where Dr. Laura steps in with Stop Whining, Start Living to help folks conquer the temptation to retreat from living life to the fullest.
As she reveals in her introduction, "No matter what you've suffered or continue to suffer, while you are alive you have the opportunity to get something from this life, and I'm going to do my best to help you with that...I know of what I speak, as this has been my torturous journey also." Building on the principles developed during her long career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, and addressing the chronic struggles of so many of her listeners and readers, Dr. Laura issues an important message in the no-nonsense but compassionate voice that is her trademark: If you don't like your life, quit talking about your unhappiness and try to fix it, no matter how difficult or impossible your situation seems.
Welcome to our first show in Prime Time!
Splash talks about the news of the day, from public to private, Abortion to the XL Pipeline and EVERYTHING in between.
Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Elizabeth Warren, Mitt Romney ..... every issue big and small ..... AND the news of the day.
In all realms of politics everyone is whining about something. Why do they whine and where does it get them?
2016 is beginning to heat up. Obama is standing his ground and STILL going it alone. Will the GOP be distracted or press ahead with their own legislative agenda? Will Obama's veto threats become reality? Will they stick? Will he back down? Is this a red line he has the kahunas to stand by?
It is all up in the air and open for discussion ......
The Pond is Open. Jump Right In or wade carefully, but remember .... everyone swims at their own risk.
The Bake McBride League will host another airing of the grievances and discuss the possibility of replacing a pair of members of the league. Want to know who it might be? Better make sure it isn't you.
The Oscars - the 88th, scheduled for February 28th.
Stars, lights, the Red Carpet.
THE crowning event of the entertainment industry.
Haven't watched that cesspool in years.
BUT, it has generated a lot of attention, due to the fact, that for the 2nd year in a row, all nominees in the 20 major acting categories are all white, thus - you guessed it - it lacks diversity!
In all fairness, I didn't see Concussion, which starred Will Smith; given his superb acting, it does seem a bit strange that he wasn't nominated, given the subject matter covered (head trauma among NFL players).
Nor did Chiraq, produced by Spike Lee.
Didn't see either, nor the other "privilege" movies, BUT, is it possible, that other movies, actors and actresses were simply better?
Is there a "law" that states, a black / non-white movie or performer must automatically be given a slot in any of these 20 major categories?
Weird and sad to me, but I'm sure there are those will inextricably connect this to the history and at times today, of systemic racism.
In the meantime, all gloves are off, for the 2016 presidential races, for both parties.
Her "highness" Hillary Clinton, at least on the surface, is running desperate, with mud-slinging that can be best characterized as - pure CLINTON.
The unraveling is amusing, and I hope I ultimately will get the last laugh.
On the GOP side, Donald Trump continues to gain momentum, even as Senator Ted Cruz make headways with voters.
And YES, the "birther" issue is legit, and WILL be used by the Democrats, should Cruz

Shelly Roberts and Joffrey Matheson have watched friends fall in love and take that giant step—marriage—promising to share their lives together. Now it’s their turn. They’ve been paired as the perfect couple, according to Allanville’s Matchmakers Committee. Yes, their friendship has developed and grown. Yes, they are compatible, enjoy each other’s company, and want the same things out of life. Most importantly, they’re both seeking a meaningful relationship. Family and friends are excited as they cheer them on. Everyone is anticipating and waiting for the big news.
Humph, that’s a joke!
Instead, they keep getting sickening, whining excuses; there are no sparks…no chemistry…we’re just friends…you know, a yummy peanut butter sandwich but with syrup instead of jelly. The million-dollar question, how can you develop a serious relationship when you’re still carrying a torch for someone from your past? Where they do that at? In the small town called Allanville?

As a depression and anxeity afflicted I understand the unfortunate stigma attached to mental health issues in this country. It is a shameful thing in this country to have mental defects. It is just a lack of toughness and over sensitivity, and we should just buck up and stop whining. They say other people have the same problems and they are fine. They say we are fakers and just don't want to face reality. Well the people just like us aren't fine. Just because you don't know others or you think they are fine by the smile on their face, believe me, if someone feels like us, they are having trouble handling it just like us. It is an insult for someone who is afraid or skeptical of mental health issues to excuse them and to put them off to us as if we have control of it somehow.
on the next BigEfromMo show I will address the issue of mental health in this country and over the world. I will go over the myths and misconceptions of mental health disorders. I want to bridge the gap between societies expectations and understanding and what it really is all about. Call ins are most welcomed and together we can send out the message, you are not alone, we are here for you. Join me Friday January 8th at 10pm, right here for a revealing and much needed and long overdue real talk about mental health issues.
