Tonight we are joined by Robert Cunningham, photographer who has chronicled our US troops serving in Afghanistan, from the moment of their deployment to the battlefield to their heartfelt return.
Cunningham has photographed the five living US presidents, nine heads of state, 12 prime ministers, numerous astronauts, celebrities, and Fortune 500 CEOs. But his proudest moment in a ten-year photography career came when he photographed US troops serving in Afghanistan. He took 55,000 photos and had a selection of the best published in Afghanistan: On the Bounce.

The Law And The Lawless Part 2: What Is To Be Done?
Holder announces task force on 'homegrown' terrorists
White House Overrode Internal Objections To Taliban Prisoner Release
The first World Trade Center bombings, the Oklahoma City bombings, 9/11/01, the rise of ISIS and Al Shabob...The world finds itself in an "Age of Terror" from which there seems to be no immediate escape. All the "usual suspects" are looking to America for solutions, while America is asking, "Why us???" The very Congress that asked when we were leaving Afghanistan, is now asking for "American boots on the ground." Many feel that our military has been "pushed to their limit." What about the Iraqui Army, the Egyptians, the Saudis, and the Syrians!!! Many fear that the next generation will be fighting in the Middle East and we are fearing attacks from terrorists all the time. Call us at 646-595-3275 with your comments.
TANK. Debuts new single' If You Were Mine' from his new EP " IF YOU WERE MINE '
Tank came out on the other side with that "story"—his sixth full-length solo album, Stronger [Atlantic Records]. In between releasing Three Kings and touring, he spent the better part of 2013 building his latest body of work. Whether he was on a plane, in hotel rooms, or at home in Los Angeles, he completely submersed himself in the creative process. Tank also found an inspiring collaborator in the iconic Jerry "Wonder" Duplessis [The Fugees, Shakira, Miguel]. While in Jerry's NYC studio one night, the pair simply clicked.
"He's everything I thought he would be," Tank goes on. "He's a musician's producer. He can take these musical elements and make them absolutely fly. We wanted to make something that felt retro and part of the future all at the same time. I needed that inspiration from him." The lead single "You're My Star," which was produced by Tank himself, shines a bright light on that kind of affection. After a dreamy intro, an upbeat swing gives way to handclaps and horns as Tank delivers one of his most infectious hooks to date. Originally inspired by the bass line from Michael Jackson’s "This Place Hotel", it's a swaggering anthem punctuated by powerful falsetto and live instrumentation.
"I needed to say it the way a woman loves to hear it and how she probably hasn't heard it in a long time," he smiles. "This is dedicated to my star. Nobody talks like that anymore. Nobody's poetic. Nobody's romantic. I've got to reintroduce that style."
Also on the album, "Dance With Me" immediately incites movement with its soulful singing and up-tempo bounce. Tank continues, "It's about having fun again. You're
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan wants to fight Heroin. He has quite a bit of work to do. That heroin is simply flooding out of Afghanistan daily. In fact, this is the biggest drug epidemic America has seen since the 1980's cocaine/crack epidemic while the CIA was helping those Contras down there in South America where the cocaine is grown from the coca plant then processes for delivery to America by the plane load. That crack scourge rivaled the old heroin epidemic in the 1960's and 1970's when the drug mostly came from Southeast Asia where by coincidence America just happened to be fighting a war with Vietnam keeping the world free from the communists playing dominoes or something like that if I recall correctly.
Here's an idea. Now I don't want to tell the generals how to fight their wars and such but every place our military fights that happens to produce illegal drugs ends up flooding those drugs into our country. My humble suggestion is if you want to fight a drug war wouldn't it be better to do it right where you already have our military? I noticed on FOX Geraldo did a story about our GI's protecting the poppy crop so those Taliban don't get at it. It worked too because it all turned up on the streets of America where we hardly have any of those Taliban.
Now if we could only find out who snatched the tons of refined product when the military obviously must have been preoccupied fighting the Taliban. Then we could really put a stop to this latest heroin outbreak. Maybe you might share this broadcast so that it could make it's way to the military leaders who obviously haven't noticed that right where they are always are fighting, narcotics are found as well then they find their way to America somehow.
Maybe Blogtalk will permit this broadcast.

Adam Curtis's new documentary, condensed & adapted to radio by Kenneth Dowst. An interesting and entertaining look at the histories and politics of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the U.S. since the 1940s.
PART ONE It's about the history and politics of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the U.S. since 1946. About the many failures of reformers--American, Russian, and Afghan alike--to remake and modernize Afghanistan. It's about shrewd and cynical calculations by Saudi and American leaders--who promote development and stability in Saudi Arabia by exporting Saudi extremist Islam (Wahhabism) abroad--including to Afghanistan.
PART TWO looks at the failed Russian attempts to reform Afghanistan in the 1980s ... the failed American attempts to reform Afghanistan since 2001 ... the transfer of political power in the West from governments to defense industries and the banks
PART THREE shows the corruption, conflicts, complexity, warlordism, and ever-shifting local alliances of Afghan society today. And it shows the naivete and ignorance of the English and American occupying forces (and of the politicians who dispatched them).
Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer). While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.
In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents. Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.
We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.
Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.
Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative. The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage. A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.
