    Taking Lena Home (with Alexandra Grant)

    in Film

    My guest today is Alexandra Grant. Alexandra is a Los Angeles-based artist that discovered that an antique tombstone she had collected as a piece of folk art in a Wyoming antique store ended up there because it had, in fact, been stolen from a cemetary in Polk County, Nebraska. Today, Alexandra and I will be talking about her documentary, “Taking Lena Home”. We'll be talking about the the timing of 'taking Lena home' — what Grant now calls “this psychic alarm clock” — and how her role changed from 'owner' of the headstone to 'caretaker'. Tune in to hear more.

    How they took gender out of their bathrooms

    in Politics

    Progressive Democrats have succeeded in altering once meaningful language and seldom bring actual statistics to bear upon really any given argument. Today let U.S. discuss this nation's restroom dilemma.


    One lgbt issue is that they are, by and large, NOT creative, and the devil came not except for to kill, steal, and (destroy).  Start your own churches, scouting organizations and societies. If you wouldn't sue a Muslim owner you should stay the hell out of our business "bidges."

    KELLY O'CONNELL AM 1450: Hillary Indictment?

    in Politics

    John Kasich finally dropped out like a pregnant high school student. The 2016 Prez race, now set with Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton, is still rising in shadowy outline. While certain knowns are already obvious, such as the truculent nature of both candidates, the looming insult-fest could right now go either way.


     


    And yet, if just one thing were jiggered -- being Hillary’s status in her FBI Email investigations, all bets would be off and Trump perhaps the presumptive winner. But if Hillary’s indictment were to come down, what would happen next? The DNC & Dems would certainly have the right to replace her. But how would that occur?


     


    So if it’s Bernie v Donald, a NY boy knockdown, do the odds change? Of course, but how? And if Biden or some other liberal warhorse slips in, what then? All of these changes would have to be measured on a case by case basis.


     


    But will Hill get indicted? Only time will tell. And could this have been Obama & the Dems plan all along, to run her as a stalking horse, only to be replaced by the preferred candidate at the 11th hour? Well, Donald won’t be losing any sleep over it, sportsfans.

    Meditate the Vote - The REAL Conversation with Sister Jenna

    in Self Help

    “Meditate the Vote – the Real Conversation” is the brainchild of the globally broadcast America Meditating Radio Show and an alliance of friends. It does not support or advocate for any candidate or party. In the midst of the election fever and the buzz that follows it, it is even more important that the citizenry is brought together to discuss issues to create a better and more cohesive understanding of ways of moving the country forward and making the world a better place.


    The #MeditatetheVote grassroots campaign to bring respect, compassion and a peaceful dialog to our election process, intends to create an avenue where people from diverse backgrounds can express their views via various means of social media and gatherings in homes and other venues. This campaign, supported by friends, thought leaders and organizations from around the country, was launched on the 1st of May, coinciding with the start of National Meditation Month and will continue leading up to Election Day on the 8th of November, 2016.

    JEFFCO Commissioner David Carrington

    in Current Events

    Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington talks with us about what's going on in Jefferson County.


    David Carrington is now serving in his second term on the Jefferson County Commission.  He was first elected to the Commission in November 2010, after serving on the Vestavia Hills City Council for six years, four of which as its president.  During his tenure on the council, from 2004 to 2010, the city experienced significant improvements in its financial performance, strategically purchased land for economic development and constructed a new state-of-the art community library and four Olympic-sized community athletic fields.


    Immediately after being sworn into office as a county commissioner, David was elected by his fellow commissioners to serve as the Commission President.  In this capacity, David played a key role in developing and executing the financial strategy that led to Jefferson County exiting bankruptcy more than a year ahead of schedule and saving its citizens billions of dollars in future debt and interest payments. 


    David was re-elected to the County Commission in November 2014 and now chairs the Commission’s Finance, Information Technology and Business Development Committee, where he has the opportunity to focus his entrepreneurial energies on economic development and job creation.  


    Professionally, David is President of RacingUSA.com, the world’s most frequently shopped, independently-owned NASCAR store.


    He and his wife Sonia are active members of Shades Mountain Baptist Church and have two sons, two granddaughters and five grandsons.
