    The Lead in To Revolution April 19, 1775-April 19th, 2015

    in Politics Conservative

    The American Revolutionary War did not start off out of the blue. It had been percolating for over 40 years, and can trace back it's roots almost 100 years. It began with the people's belief that they had the ability to govern them selves, and the governments belief that the people were there to submit to governmental rule.


    We find ourselves more and more today, in the same dilema. The government feels it should be asked for permission, by the people, for every single thing they do. That there is no facet of American life that should not be controlled by the government. Government has grown soi arge that it over shadows everything we do every single day. Permits, licenses, fees, taxes, tens of thousands of laws on every imaginable issue.


    Tonight we are going to talk about how the events of April 19th began starting just a year before. And see if you think that we are in a similar position today.


    the call in number is 347-308-8790


    See you there!

    This is going to be a great show tonight with Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton Founder and Executive Director of The Fatherless Generation Foundation headquartered in Atlanta Georgia.


    On this episode of In Life Now, Dr. Evans-Barton is going to engage us in "girl talk!"


    Ladies this show is dedicated to Y-O-U so get sit back, get comfortable, and get in on the conversation...


    About Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton:


    "A transplant from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Torri J. Evans-Barton currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia where she is the Founder & CEO of The Fatherless Generation Foundation. Growing up in a single parent household, Torri faced many adversities adding tremendous devastation to her life emphasizing the fact she needed her father.


    This burden burning on the inside of Torri J. Evans-Barton caused her to realize there were others who are growing up fatherless just like her who desire reconciliation with their absent father. Her desire has now turned into a full time mission of “healing the broken places the fatherless experience has created” through her nonprofit, The Fatherless Generation Foundation Inc.  Launched in 2009, TFGF is a non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia reuniting fathers and their children by providing the resources and services that strengthen, support, and elevate the commitment to fatherhood and family values.

    GREGORY WALCOTT: HERO OF GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE

    in Film

    Late actor Gregory Wallcott played the heroic lead in PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, that many critics condemn as "The Worst Movie Ever Made." Grindhouse screen stars John Link, Edward X Young, & Cameron Scott think it's greater than "Citizen Kane." GREGORY WALLCOTT, whose screen career spanned almost five decades, including many Oscar-winning pictures such as NORMA RAE, died in Los Angeles on March 20, 2015 at age 87. For a long time, Walcott, fled from recognition of his participation in Edward D Wood Jr.'s 1959 science-fiction horror classic that co-starred BELA LUGOSI, VAMPIRA, & TOR JOHNSON. However, in latter years, he embraced his role, even taking a part in Tim Burton's biopic tribute ED WOOD, playing an investor in "Plan 9 from Outer Space." The John Link Show's friend, CONRAD BROOKS, who co-starred in that same picture relays his loving recollections of this admired Hollywood star, who has left us behind on Planet Earth. We all dearly miss Gregory Wallcott.
