    The Opening to Cuba: What do Cuban Americans Think?

    in Politics Conservative

    The US proposal to relax restrictions on Cuba has been controversial. Some believe that exchanges with Cuba will get the Castro regime to open up its society and bring freedom to the island.

    Others believe that notion is nonsense.


    The issue has divided Cuban Americans, largely along generatioinal lines, with younger people supporting the move and older Americans opposing it. What does the future hold and will the embargo be lifted soon?


    The RINO Hour of Power, with your host Rick Moran, will examine the issue from every angle with author and radio host Silvio Canto, an American who escaped Cuba with his family shortly after Castro took power. Co-hosting the show will be Fausta Wertz, who runs the popular Latin America blog Fausta's Blog.


    The show streams live from 8:00 - 9:00 PM Eastern time. A podcast will be available shortly after the end of the show.

    Don and Tomas - Cuban Americans Won't Go For This Nonsense Again

    in Politics

    The two Cuban amigos are kicking butt and naming names. Tune in at 6 PM Saturday with your questions and comments.Cuban Americans will rise up to lead our fellow Americans out of this social morass because we've seen this before and we damn sure aren't going there again! We especially want to hear from you average communist dupes who feel the crooked government will make us equal.


    One tip for the police. During the communist revolution in Cuba the police were lined up against a wall and shot. So don't be fed a fake narrative that aides another banker backed socialist revolutionary who admits he want to transform America.

    Americans Unite to Stop Toll Roads and Save the American Freeways

    in Politics

    Attention American Transportation Leaders - It is Time to Stop Toll Roads and Restore our Freeways!


    Guests: Terri Hall - Texans for Toll-free Highways


    Patrick Hand - Stop  the Tolls


    Americans know there are better ways to fund highways than TOLL TAXES.  We know everyone's cost of living goes up with the cost of transportation. We know everyone benefits from transportation regardless of how many miles they drive on the highways.  We know it is wrong for our local, state and federal representatives and quasi-governmental agencies to sell-off public infrastructure to foreign corporations. We know "Public Private Partnerships" are nothing more than a major source for governmental corruption.  We know these individuals/representatives, quasi-governmental agencies and P3s are NOT working in the best interest of the American people. We know it is up to us to demand changes in transportation. 


    The time is now for Americans to come together to shut-down toll roads across the U.S.A.  We can shut-down the toll roads if we work  together.


    Here are some of the grassroot groups working to stop toll roads:



    Louisiana  http://www.stopthetolls.org/
    Texas http://tollfreehighways.com/author/thall/
    Texas http://www.texasturf.org/about
    Florida http://rollbacktolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://wideni77.org/
    Texas  http://texansagainsttolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://www.stopthetollroad.com/index.html
    Illinois - Indiana  http://www.openlands.org/illiana
    North Carolina http://www.notollsi95.com/position


    If you are ready to take back our country and our freeways, contact these groups and get involved!

    in Lifestyle

    Murray “Jay” Farr was appointed Chief of Police in May 2015. Prior to his appointment, Jay served in the Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) for 23 years, where he served in a variety of positions, including assignments as Acting Police Chief, Deputy Chief of Police for Systems Management, Operations, and Criminal Investigations. He has also served as Arlington County Acting Deputy County Manager.   Jay is also a U.S. Marine veteran, where he served with the Presidential helicopter unit.   Jay earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from George Mason University and he has undertaken study in a number of educational programs, including the Naval Post Graduate School CDHS,  FBI National Academy, Leadership Arlington and Senior Institute for Police Management – Boston College in conjunction with John F. Kennedy School of Business Management, Harvard University. He is Adjunct Professor at George Mason University, where he teaches a curriculum of criminal justice and emergency management for law enforcement.


    Ms. Karen Nightengale currently serves as President of the NAACP Arlington Branch. Prior to her election in December 2014, she served as first vice president of the Arlington branch of the NAACP for five years. Ms. Nightengale succeeded Mr. Elmer L.H. Lowe, Sr., who served as branch president since 2008.  The Arlington branch of the NAACP was founded in 1940 and its members meet on the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at Walter Reed Community Center.  From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.  This should be a very rewarding conversation all listeners.

    A Better Person As President Is On Blog Talk Radio At 5:30pm - Curtis Clinton

    in Elections

    The Title says it. Why? It makes sense. I come from your place, or very close to it, Even if we do not agree completely, we are closer than the others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. Your day to day is closer to ours and we live it with nearly similar DNA: Daily Numerous Adversities; Daily Numerous Ailments; Daily Numerous Aspirations. I know an unknown person has little chance to be seen by you. I know that its something stupid to do this. It may even look more than stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now or that have just happened. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are said for our own good. They need to be said and brought to light and right. There are some well known


    people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one among us, if you can understand that in all its fullness. It is surmised that when you reach the White House, things change you. Except for becoming better, I will not change the good, right, smart within me or what must and should be done. I want much better for all, even you; our cohabitant animals; our earth. The White House belongs to you, with a person of the people, ordinary if necessary and not to a Political Party. If you see it that way, could you and will you put together 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans of all blood types of O's, A's, B's and AB's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One willing caring for all doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. This idea is for you, thanks, bwell, c2it, i am Curt Clinton, I am call’d c2.

    Interview With Author Ronald L. Allen on His Book "The Evolution of Bid Whist"

    in Writing

    Ronald Allen is the author of “The Evolution of Bid Whist-150 Years in the Growth of an African American Tradition.”  This new book is quickly becoming a definitive benchmark for Bid Whist players across the nation.  Allen has been researching the origin of the game for several years, and was quite amazed to discover an extensive relationship between the game and the African American community dating back to the 1860’s. 


    Bid Whist, closely related to Bridge, evolved from a game played by slaves to a game with an expanded following in many countries, thanks to the efforts of African Americans such as the Pullman Porters who took the game “up north.”  This non-fiction writing by Allen not only explains the history of the game, but also includes the games’ rules, variations and strategies.
