    What Are We Really Paying Our Elected Officials To Do?

    in Women

    We are the employers of the Mayor, the Governor, the City Clerk, the City Treasurer, the Alderman, the States Attorney, the State Representative, the State Senator, and all the elected officials on the ballot. Our tax dollars pay their salaries. But what are they really supposed to be doing? Most citizens who vote really don't have a clue as to the job description of each elected office. Most public schools stopped teaching "civics" long ago. So, we give a lot of power and control over our lives to people and we don't even know anything about them, or the kinds of decisions they make that affect our daily survival. Bill "Doc" Walls, currently a candidate for Mayor of Chicago, has studied and even run for, a number of elected offices. Today he'll help us move closer to totalpolitical literacy with detailed explanations of the duties, responsibilities and hiring powers of those people running for public office who are asking for our vote in the upcoming election.

    Trust in Elected Officials, a Requirement

    in Politics Progressive

    Trust in elected officials is a requirement people. We should send only people we trust to represent us and US. When those who are not trustworthy are proven to not be trustworthy we need to put in place a solution to replace them immediately. We need journalist to seek facts. We need journalist to be unbiased. Journalist need to be independent thinkers not special interest mongers. We all must learn to trust and verify.

    Political Prisoners: Do Elected Officials Use Jail To Silence Opposition?

    in Women

    Rev. Edward Pinkney, Pastor of God House of Faith in Benton Harbor, Michigan and President of BANCO, is a hard working activist who found himself in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Toni Meekey Stith, Chicago community activist working with Families of Those Wrongfully Convicted and candidate for Alderman of the 34th Ward, found herself also in an unexpected place. Jail.


    Both recognize trumped up charges placed against them which seem to originate from those whose positions of authority they are threatening with their public activism.


    We like to believe that America is a democracy where people are treated equally under the law but recent events have made it clear that this is not so. Many are outraged that those in "low income" communities tend to be arrested and jailed more often than those from affluent communities. But what about the injustice against those working people who are targeted simply because they dare to challenge those in authority? Sometimes those in power will become cruel and ruthless if threatened with the loss of a political position. Is jail being used as a tool by some in authority to silence their opposition?

    Elected Officials Live in Prosperity

    in Politics

    Do you like what you see our elected officials doing and not doing for America? Have you seen the best side of the GOP, Republicans, Democrats? Or are you seeing the bad side, the back end of US elected officials? Do you realize it only takes a massive organized collective out pouring to get the attention of elected officials.
    Why do we need their attention? We need JOBs, ACA, Veteran services across America, Unions to protect US worker rights, end US CEOs outsourcing of US jobs.
    Elected officials live in prosperity while growing numbers of Americans are living in, or one paycheck away from poverty.

    Empower Half Hour Implementing Enjoy Life Communities

    in Motivation

    This podcast will focus on how easy it is to implement an Enjoy Life Community.  


    Enjoy Life Communities are A SOLUTION -- It's so sad how our Country has been divided over these past weeks. Perhaps a lot of it has been due to the lack of leadership of our elected officials. There is so much hurt and hatred, and we know each one of us feels differently about what is happening in our society. BUT, we believe it truly has to stop. A few weeks ago Doreen came up with an idea which has been sponsored by the Time to Play Foundation - the Enjoy Life Community Project (www.timetoplay.com/enjoy-life-community)


    We presented it to the Brookhaven Town Board 10/28 and she's been speaking to a few elected officials. It's a big idea. How does it work?  It brings EVERYONE together to the table - NOT to focus on problems, but to find solutions... so EVERYONE can enjoy life. We all live here. I think it's time to stop fighting. This is not to minimize anything that is going on in our society, but to actually find solutions. Certainly protesting and rioting is not solving anything at all. And, every life is precious. The longer this goes on, the more heartache we will see.


    Please contact us -- help us get this started. For all of us -- for our children.


    Empower Half Hour is made possible by the Time to Play Foundation, Inc., a not for  profit corporation. See more at www.TheEnjoyLifeProject.org

    The Erosion of the Constitution and Bill of Rights in America

    in Education

    Amendment I:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Edward Snowden)


    Amendment V:  No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger;... (Obama administration has taken the extraordinary step of authorizing the targeted killing of an American citizen, the radical Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki).


    Amendment VI: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury ....  (Patriot Act & NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act)


    Amendment XXVII:  Prohibits elected officials from voting into effect their own pay raise. Ironically, the "Ethics Reform Act of 1989" stipulates that automatic salary increases will be granted, unless the congress holds a special hearing to vote against giving themselves a pay raise! This means that no matter how poorly they perform, they get a raise, and although it's unconstitutional, they have an "ethics law" which violates the constitution and gives them an automatic pay raise despite the unconstitutionality of the law.


    Amendment IV:  The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. (Random Check Points - freedom of movement)
