SORT BY Relevancy
For most of the summer of 2014, the main stream media was covering the events in Ferguson. It stopped for a while because of the war in Russia and the announcement by our government that Bush had lied about the war and Obama just gave him immunity. They came back to Furguson for a while then the focus changed to ISIS. Since the begining of the new year, the main stream media has just forgotten about Furguson.
Ferguson erupted into angry, sometimes violent protests after a white police officer, Darren Wilson, shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in August. The Justice Department investigated that shooting, and officials have said they will clear the officer of civil rights charges. That finding is also expected soon. But the report into the broader practices of the local police department will give the context for the shooting, describing the mounting sense of frustration and anger in a predominantly black city where the police department and local government are mostly white.
Shortly after this murder, Ezell Ford was an unarmed black man shot and killed by police in August in Los Angeles, California. Now, newly released details of Ford's death could raise a host of new questions. Among the findings: The 25-year-old was shot three times, including once in the back. And that wound was surrounded by a muzzle imprint, Ford's autopsy report shows. But "there is nothing in the coroner's report that is inconsistent with the statements given to us by the officers," Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said. Ford was shot by Los Angeles police on August 11 -- two days after Brown was killed.
Nadia Ruiz began running during her freshman year in high school. She comes from a first generation immigrant family from Ecuador. Her parents raised their children with the principles to work hard, dedicate yourself to ones education, and always aim for ones highest personal integrity.

Nadia graduated with her BS, M.Ed, and Teacher's Credential from UCLA at the age of 20. Nadia has been a HS Biology educator, coach, and marketing consultant for 10 years.
Nadia shares her passion of fitness, health, and education with her family and friends in hopes to continue to encourage others to seek their goals, especially young aspiring Latinos who dream of achieving their dreams.
Nadia shares, "I will live my life as I choose. I hope to continue to follow where my heart guides me exploring and challenging myself in new terrain as long as I can while encouraging others to do so as well."
Nadia states, "In order to reach others, I have created some profiles on social media where I share my struggles, triumphs, and challenges throughout my life to demonstrate to others that they may other overcome their struggles to reach their goals."

President John Kennedy's April 27, 1961 speech directed to the press. (5min19sec) Includes:
"We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive & unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweigh the dangers which are cited to justify it."
"...there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it."
"And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship & concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control."
"Government at all levels must meet its obligations to provide you with the fullest possible information, outside the narrowest limits of national security."

Peebles via Summer Bacon, Jan. 2015: "This is going to be a year of reviving the understanding of what freedom means...There's going to be a change in the organization called your United States Government...due to the people in the country here who are going to unite, stating very clearly, very loudly...to be free of the pressure, the encumbering pressure that has come by so much regulation..."

Imagine being five years old and having your whole life ahead of you, then in one brief moment, it changed forever. Gerald Anderson is 73-years old. He lives in the Mid-West, but if you go back to 1947, he was living in New Mexico, when he, his father, Uncle and Cousin went out looking for agates. During their search, they came across a downed UFO, with Extraterrestials on the ground. Two of the beings were dead. One grey was dying and one was alive. He touched one of them, at the Crash of St. Augustin, New Mexico.
For decades Gerald has stayed silent, due to the fact that he was tired of people not believing him. But due to the fact that age is catching up with him, he feels the need to talk, on Spaced Out Radio. He's been questioned, He's been harassed. He's been called everything under the sun, from liar to story teller. But Gerald has no reason to lie. He knows what he saw that Summer night in '47. Wreckage has been found. And HE WAS THERE!
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.
