SORT BY Relevancy
Canadians have been witness to the steady decline of Parliament for decades now. Non-attendance, scheduled stunts or traditionally blasphemous behavior in the House. The wholesale decline of the Senate. The hijacking and handcuffing of committees. The general assertion that Parliament is now a tool for the party in power to sell their brand. Not to govern. Not to be held to account. Not to explain behavior and policy to the OWNERS of the place - Canadians.
Of course, to learned watchers and average citizens alike, this is nothing new. But the naked contempt, the arrogant defiance, the indifference to tradition has been raised to never before seen levels by Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee (CPC). The core principles of the Westminster Parliament have been eroded and discarded to make things easier for the most corrupt Government in Canadian history.
Nothing is more visible and symptomatic of this than the facade of the Speaker of the House of Commons. The last week has shown this once again to Canadians and the world. No other legislative chamber based on the British system has such a farce charged with keeping decorum, focus and relevance on the business of the nation. Andrew Scheer has brought new lows to the position. But he has hardly done it on his own or without direction. The Speaker is supposed to be impartial, treating all Members of Parliament with equal respect and regard. It takes one question exchange from Question Period to see this. A far cry from the Commons of the United Kingdom, where the Speaker has and does tell the Prime Minister when he is out of line and he shall be silent. Imagine that here. If you can.
Join us to discuss this stain on our public portrayal to Canadians and the world. It is time for the pendulum to swing back. Calls welcome and encouraged tonight, lets hear what Canadians have to say!
As we have progressed through more than four decades since the decline of the civil rights movement, we have experienced a complete shift in paradigms as far as the consciousness of our youth toward our struggle. During the late sixties and seventies, our youth stood up in rebellion against a system that was non-conducive to their quest for elevation and empowerment. With songs from artist such as Marvin Gay (Mother Mother) and James Brown (Say it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud). Music played a vital role in reinforcing a positive black image and a sense of pride within our youth.
During the 80s and the early 90s, hip hop rose to the occasion, with rappers and groups that flooded the air waves with positive messages. Groups, such as The Last Poets, Public Enemy, Brand Nubian, Sister Souljah, The Roots, and the list goes on, promoted a positive self-image and a political awareness that brought enlightenment and a sense of empowerment to the black youth. The positive image that flowed not only gave us something from a culture that was all our own, it taught us history that we were not getting through traditional education and main stream media.
Hip hop has been raped and pillaged, and it no longer resembles the art form that was undeniably African. It has become one of the most destructive forces in our community. Now, hip hop wages war against the very people who created it. In fact, one could argue that hip hop is no longer hip hop at all. White (Jewish) owned record labels have promoted the interpolation of disrespectful and misogynistic lyrics from their artist, and the result has been a decline in self-awareness by black youth, and a desensitization of the plight of the black race as a whole.
Join us as we discuss the current state of hip hop and its influence on black culture. We will also discuss how we can actually use this knowledge to our advantage

According to the National Adult Literacy Survey two-thirds of students who cannot read effectively by the time they graduate 4th grade, dramatically increasing their chances of going to jail, as over 70 percent of American inmates cannot read above a 4th grade reading level. A shocking one in every four children in America grow up without learning how to read.
The Social Science and Medical Journal reports low literacy has been correlated with poverty, unemployment and incarceration in prison and other institutions.It’s been associated with negative health outcomes for conditions like diabetes and hypertension, and more frequent hospitalizations for medical concerns. Each of these issues disproportionately impact community mental health service users.But literacy goes beyond reading and math skills.
In light of the Floyd Mayweather illiteracy claims and his ability to flaunt money in response is a sign that we are sending the wrong messages to our kids. Instead of endorsing throwing a ball, picking up a microphone, or twerking how about reading.

Special guest: Dane Wigington has an extensive background in solar energy. He is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. and was a licensed contractor in California and Arizona. His personal residence was featured in a cover article on the world’s largest renewable energy magazine, Home Power. He owns a 1,600-acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in northern California.
Dane focused his efforts and energy on the geo-engineering issue when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to what ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from the aircraft spraying. He also noted significant decline in forest health and began testing and research into the geo-engineering issue about a decade ago.
Dane is the lead researcher for http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org and has investigated all levels of geo engineering from chemtrails to HAARP. He assisted Michael Murphy with his production of “What in the World are They Spraying” and has appeared on an extensive number of interviews to explain the environmental dangers we face on a global level. He lives in Mt. Shasta, California.
Let's Go Mex joins Dave to get into the state of the NFL during a tumultuous month. Last week it was Ray Rice. This week we cover Adrian Peterson's ongoing issues with child abuse of his children, the Vikings' response, and the NFL's response. Was it too sudden for the Vikings to activate Adrian Peterson after keeping him out a week ago and with new child abuse allegations in effect? Will the Vikes' move to start him even stand as sponsors decline their support of their team? PLUS a look at the upcoming NFL matchups, as the game continues on the field. Next, we have Week 3 of our Podcast Picks with a four way tie in the standings! Will Ron, John, Andy, or Ottis break the tie with their NCAA and NFL picks? An exciting week of picks ahead AND Kevin on the Cape returns for "Random Questions" in Hour 2.
