Why is it that every time we think it can’t get any worse for Americans, this Presidential Administration embroils themselves in yet another controversy. Why not stick a sharp stick in the eye of every man and women that has served or is serving our great country on the battlefields of terrorism. Five committed Taliban Terrorists for one U.S. Deserter? Come on now does anybody believe after the Caribbean vacation that we just gave these five terrorists, they will just slowly fade away? Why it is anytime time this administration become embroiled in a scandal with political fallout, this administration does something to turn media attention away from that scandal? Can we say Alinski’s Rules for Radicals? Camouflage the VA Scandal because it reminds people that government run health care does not and will not work, releasing 5 of the worst terrorists every captured. What do you think? Join Jimmy and Bernie for the next edition of Let’s Talk Justice America, this Thursday June 5th 2014 at 7:00PM EDT on the Blog Talk Radio Network.
Brainerd native John Remington "Jack" Graham was elected county attorney in 1990 in what most observers saw as a huge political upset. Graham served one term as county attorney and did not seek re-election. He was a special counsel to the city of Brainerd from 1974 to 1980 and led the fight against mandatory fluoridation of the city's water. Jack currently lives in Quebec.
March, 2012 Jill Clark writes:
Graham quoted in an article from 1991:
"I have learned what a great honor it is to be a prosecutor,
and what tremendous responsibility can be on a
man's shoulders, how lives are affected. If you have
that power and you use it with the fear of God in your
heart, and a love of justice, what wonderful things can
be done! But woe unto any prosecutor who abuses that
sacred trust, to prosecute innocent men, by perpetrating
public fraud for political reasons . . . .
When you have a thug, like Skip Humphrey, who
makes a mockery of our system of justice, by literally
criminal abuse of that great power, it is time that we,
the citizens of this republican Commonwealth of Minnesota,
make an example of such a criminal in public

Our guest is Chris Seeger, Co Lead Counsel in the Concussion legal action against the NFL. Join us as we discuss the NFL concussion settlement and get some of the info YOU NEED TO KNOW in order to make the best decision for yourself and your loved ones!
From the Seeger Weiss website......."More recently, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania appointed Mr. Seeger in 2012 to lead the highly visible and contentious multidistrict litigation against the National Football League arising out of concussion-related injuries sustained by thousands of former NFL players over the past several decades. In the face of significant legal and scientific obstacles, Mr. Seeger brought all of his experience and diplomacy to bear as chief negotiator in crafting a $765 million global settlement for thousands of former NFL athletes in August of 2013."
The Real Football Wives (and Lives) program does not endorse any particular position in the concussion lawsuit. We believe that everyone involved should be as informed as possible, possess the facts and make the right decision as it applies to their own situation.
We have planned to produce our program with two or three guests per 75 to 90 minute episode. Due to the importance of this matter and the upcoming deadline for retired players to respond, this conversation and episode will focus exclusively on this particular discussion and our guest Mr. Chris Seeger. We will be visiting with other guests regarding this matter throughout the next two weeks.
We will not be taking phone calls during this program.
