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".

Callers and Chat Participation are Welcome. Newt Gingrich Fans and Loyalists Join me in talking about our 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate and how he is still ( and will continue to be) contributing in bringing back America from the destruction left by the Obama Administration- with his leadership and bold ideas. Come to our Round Table Discussion. All Mics Stay Open.
Bards Logic discusses Newt Gingrich. The series will be to bring folks up to date with what Newt is doing, share news, discuss his ideas, and how we can help Newt in moving America forward. Get the train rolling and tell Newt we STILL want and Need him as our President.
If you were not a Newt supporter in the Primaries, come hear why there are so many that still believe he IS The Leader America needs.
Newt Quotes: "The problem with President Obama’s golf outings is the lack of strategic thinking and systematic leadership when he is not on the golf course. The confusion over Syria, Iraq, ISIS, Hamas, Israel, and Libya is only one example of the growing incoherence of his entire administration. Lurching from crisis to crisis and story to story with no strategic purpose or long-term implementation makes his golf matches look more consequential than his presidency."
"I believe we are now in a struggle over whether or not we are going to save America."
"The secular elites are so terrified of telling the truth about radical Islam. When you talk about the radical Islamists, we have got to get straight and get serious and talk about it in the right way."
"Have you heard a single national figure tell you all of the crises of the recent past are not economic, they're cultural?"

Why should we be concerned at what happened thousands of miles away from our homes? Because Radiation and Nuclear wastes from the accident are washing up on our shores and have contaminated the Oceans of the world.
So, why are we still screwing around with nuclear power?
Fracking shattering the core of the earth! Contamination of our ground water.
Fossel fuels and the war of the nations. He who has the biggest STRAW wins!
In the pursuit to be God, man will destroy this world. In the words quoted from the Bhagavad-Gita by Robert Oppeheimer, the creator of the Nuclear Bomb called the Trinity.
"...I have become death the destoryers of Worlds"
Why should we care?
Because in 20-30 years our children will suffer the consequesnces of our inaction and ignorance.

Empty Nest Syndrome on Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio, August 30. Mothers and fathers who dedicated the last 18 plus years of moneys, marital bliss, prodding, laughing and sweating through parenting confusions launch their college students out of the house. Relief and parenting pride intermix with loss, depression and sense of “now what.” Dr. Carol Francis as a Clinical Psychologist has helped teens and parents successfully move to this day. Empty-Nesting is for real and Dr. Carol Francis for over 37 years has helped parents regroup after their household becomes quiet and their time is once again their own. Program is available on podcast and archived at this link as well on Dr. Carol Francis Talk Radio.
The primary caretaker, still typically mothers, are the ones most suffering from this sense of loss. Empty Nesters feel depressed, frequently crying. Beyond the loss and this type of bereavement, Empty Nesters experience a type of existential crisis. This “now what” reflects a type of meaninglessness. “Effectively, raising children is all-consuming. Every minute become consumed raising the child by either doing, planning, thinking, worrying, helping, struggling, and losing sleep. Now, suddenly, those children are not dependent and not needing the daily demands, at least in the western world,” explains Dr. Carol Francis.
“Unless the Empty Nester create sdynamically enjoyable and meaningful activities which replace the importance and time-consuming nature of parent, the Empty Nester is doomed to confusion, feeling impotent, unimportant, devalued; bottom line the parent feels completely empty,” describes Psychologist Dr. Carol Francis in Los Angeles South Bay area at 310-543-1824.

Oakland, CA – The prevailing belief that marriage is between a man and a woman has compelled many gays and lesbians to enter heterosexual marriages and even start families. When revelations such as these occur within committed relationships, the consequence is typically one of utter devastation for the straight spouse; it’s a combination of shock, disbelief, rejection, betrayal, and above all confusion.
“Of course we’re happy when a person can finally be himself or herself, but when he or she comes out of the closet, we straight spouses go into our own closet,” says Dr. Amity Pierce Buxton. “Straight spouses must go through the same process of coming to grips with who they are as did their lesbian or gay spouses. To do so, they need to know they’re not alone and they can get through it.”
Dr. Amity Pierce Buxton is the founder of the Straight Spouse Network, a non-profit, worldwide organization that provides support to straight spouses and couples as they navigate this emotional transition, as well as research-based information for spouses, couples, families and the community at large to understand the traumatic nature of these revelations and the underlying societal causes of the crisis.
Dr. Buxton first gained attention for her book The Other Side of the Closet: A Coming Out Crisis for Straight Spouses and Families. Her most recent book is Unseen, Unheard: Straight Spouses from Trauma to Transformation, which captures the voices of these spouses as they discover the truth, cope with their pain and figure out how to make decisions in the middle of all this emotional chaos.
“We, the Straight Spouse Network, need all the help we can to get the word out. We want every straight spouse to know we’re here,” says Dr. Buxton. “Hopefully by the next generation we’ll no longer be needed.”
