It's Friday people. I'm going to talk about every little thing that pops up in my mind, no planned topics, we're going to do another Surfin' With Badger style show. Play a little music. I'm going to vent about what's on my mind. Currently what's on my mind is race relations, things that are wrong with people these days, the media being a great big bag of suck, politicians getting paid way too much and not being held accountable for anything, just some general ranting and raving it seems. You should call in, you really should. Be a part of the tenth show! Make your voice heard. Or don't. Your call.

Gus Venegas was born in 1952 a few months before after a Bautista's coup that ended fifty years of democracy and civil liberties in Cuba. Nearly all of Gus' kin supported a Revolution that supported a return of the Republic. The Venegas family witnessed the transformation of the Cuban Revolution into the Western Hemisphere's most oppressive political, economic, and cultural dictatorship. They left Cuba in 1966 when Castro and President Johnson agreed to a legal and orderly departure of Cuban exiles.
Venegas is the author of Memories from the Land of the Intolerant Tyrant. Venegas says this book which details life under Castro, is his vegeance. "The truth is our vengeance".

Do you ever feel like you are not getting the whole story? If you are like me, you can look to your own life situation and know that “the news” often omits important elements that might well change how others perceive the situation. Whether the information is incomplete by oversight or design, it is time for our media to raise the bar.
Today on Lunch with Louden I’ll be interviewing someone working to do just that. Tim Danahey, radio show host and active citizen, has been sharing a closer look at the news since 2010. His recent article, THE END OF THE TRAIL: HOW GOVERNMENT DESTROYED FREE MARKETS AND FAMILY RANCHERS is an example of his ability to, and interest in, understanding how this republic’s democracy is being wrangled for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many.
He often quotes Sir Edmund Burke: “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”.
LUNCH with LOUDEN
Jeanene Louden and co-host Debilyn Molineaux talk about current events and look for opportunities to bridge political divides, expose corruption and share information not covered in mainstream media.
