    The multi billion dollar industry of the VA with Spencer Marshall

    in Military

     the relationship between the VA and many of the university medical centers that are in bed with them,  we will touch on the well over 300,000 veterans that were exposed to Agent Orange who dies when the VA refused to acknowledge the well known cancer precurosors that exposure spawned nor the ishemic heart conditions. we will take a stroll down memory lane and recall the report McDonald delivered to congress early last year in which he declared that more veterans die of suicide who are not involved in VA care than of those who are and the report by NBC news 6 weeks later that detailed how 80% of the veterans they surveyed who had attempted suicide had in fact been "treated" by the VA in the 30 days leading up to their lest attempt.


     We will cover the THOUSANDS of TBI medical incident reports that the DoD removed from the records of the people who suffered even severe TBI throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s who were kept in service AND the new technology that can time stamp those injuries today! Ialso know what happpened to those records too and where they might be located providing they were not destroyed follwing the VA's refusal to take custody of them in 2014.


    And the fact that chronic homelessness is well known symptom of post concussion syndrome.


    We Will speak of McDonalds desire to limit the evidence submission period. This is of course is the direct result of the information age allowing more evidence to be collected at a faster rate then ever before. So I guess he wants to limit the time frame of that to something under the DECADES it can take to get a LEGITIMATE claim approved right?

    It's Tax Time. What You Need To Know About Income Tax Identity Theft

    in Technology

    Join Jim Blue and Steve Weisman in a discussion on how to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of income tax identity theft.


    It's tax time and we all know that income tax identity theft is a major problem.  The most common way that income tax identity theft occurs is when the identity thief files an income tax return using his or her victim’s Social Security number along with a counterfeit W-2 that indicates a large refund is due.


    In his most recent article in USA Today, Steve wrote "According to the General Accountability Office (GAO), the IRS paid out 5.8 billion dollars in bogus refunds to identity thieves for the tax year 2013 and, according to the GAO the real figure is probably significantly higher because of the difficulty of knowing how much income tax fraud remains undetected.
    But it is not as bad as you think. It is worse".


    Steve Weisman is a lawyer, a professor at Bentley University and one of the country's leading experts in scams and identity theft. He writes the daily blog scamicide.com, where he provides daily update information about the latest scams. His new book is Identity Theft Alert.

    The Overall State of the NFL Going Into the Offseason

    in Sports

    Just like that, the 2015-16 NFL Season has vanished and football withdrawal has taken place all over America.  The Core Show panelists will attempt to keep you engaged as far as the NFL goes by telling you what the #1 storyline was out of the NFL this past season.  We'll look back on all things Super Bowl 50 and tell you our takeaways from the game, our favorite Super Bowl commercials, our impressions of the national anthem by Lady Gaga and the Pepsi Halftime Show featuring Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars, where the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers go from here to prepare for next season and much more.  


    Speaking of more, we'll examine Cam Newton and his poor, onfield perfomance, leading to his poorer postgame behavior and explain why calling him the face of the NFL proved to be a bit premature.  We'll examine the legcy of Peyton Manning and tell you if it's now complete now that he has won that oh so elusive 2nd Super Bowl.  We'll also tell you whether or not we expect him to retire.  We'll react to the latest fallout surrounding Johnny Manziel and even tell you a known figure in the NFL who ultimately had the worst day once the Panthers officially lost Super Bowl 50.  


    We'll also have an insider who covers the Oakland Raiders to address the rumors around the possibility they could relocate to Las Vegas and occupy a 1 billion dollar stadium that is going to be built on the campus of UNL V.  


    We'll examine the state of the NFL and mention what we believe the NFL needs to address this offseason.

    KELLY O'CONNELL AM 1450: Peyton Out on Top in SB 50

    in Politics

    In the battle between the past, present and the future….Peyton Manning & his Broncos just did something many said could not be done. They pushed back the present and future….even if for just one day...and won the Superbowl against the mighty MVP Cam Newton & his Panthers 24-10. So how did they do it? An audaciously clever plan & D-E-F-E-N-S-E!! Well done Peyton...way to ride off a winner.


    I’m not sure if we can draw any easy comparisons this political season, except to say we hope the opposite is true for this presidential campaign. The corrupt and creaky houses of Clinton & Bush are in dire need of fumigation. It’s time for those tired dynasties were sent out to pasture. GOP pick Jeb is simply too much of a pansy to offer leadership during these troubled times. Hillary doesn’t even look as if she can last till the convention without an indictment. But even if the Houses of Bush/Clinton could make it in, are these folks really what America needs right now? How can anyone claim they are the cream of the crop?


    And little Mr. Marco Roboto...he got so sucked up in his talking points that he sounded like a robot with a skip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGWPo7GqA6w Can Rubio overcome his poll-tested mini-speech disaster? Can Kasich keep his 2nd place polling at the election? Will Jeb finally throw the white hankey? Will Chris Christie drop out & hand to the Golden Corral? Will Ted Cruz find a new way to cheat?


    Stay tuned, sportsfans… & Congrats to Bronocs Nation!
