    Conservative Refuge Radio: 6/29/2015

    in Politics Conservative

    On tonight’s show:



    The Baltimore Sun has lost their mind over the Governor’s decision not to fund the Red Line boondoggle.  The Governor has fired back.  We’ll discuss.
    In light of a terrible week last week, I give a little “pep talk” to Maryland conservatives on the way forward.
    Josh Kurtz, the leader of the O’Malley cronies at Center Maryland has a list of “25 Republican Rising Stars”.  I’ll share some thoughts on the list and who might be missing.
    Maryland’s history is under assault, including by some Maryland Republicans, who want to remove a century old statue of Maryland’s only Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from the State House grounds.

    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!

    The Importance of Fathers in Their Children's Lives

    in Parents

    Dr. Annie Abram and Armin Brott, a fathering expert and the author of many books about fathers will discuss the importance of fathers in their children's lives. Although, there continues to be a stigma associated with "care-giving" dads, through out last two decades the role of the father has been increasingly recognized as just as important as that of the mother in determining the well being of children in every aspect of their development. For example, the involvement of a father in a girl's life is instrumental in how she thinks about herself as a woman, a  worker,
    and increases her confidence on every level. Of course, this is true for boys as well, largely through gender identification.


    A former Marine, Armin Brott has devoted the last 20 years to providing men with the tools, support, and knowledge to help them become the fathers they want to be——and their families need them to be. His eight critically acclaimed books for fathers have sold well over a million copies. Titles include The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be and The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year. He has written on fatherhood for hundreds of newspapers and magazines and is a frequent guest on such television programs as the Today Show. He also writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column (Ask Mr. Dad), and hosts a syndicated radio show (Positive Parenting). He lives with his family in Oakland, California.

    Who Said Sales Was Going to Be Easy?

    in Marketing

    Sales, the final frontier.


    Sorry, the phrase, "the final frontier", are the words from the hit, sci-fi show "Star Trek".


    Well, you now have a business or maybe you have been practicing your trade for a few years.


    The trend over the last 5-10 years has been to move away from connecting with people in face-to-face or telephone conversation in favor of "engaging" them over the Internet.


    If you really want to be successful in selling, you can continue using digital platforms but you must realize that sales is a people business. It always has been, and it always will be.


    Don't be afraid. You can do it. It's fun.


    Try it today.

    The Edge with Casssandre Dayne

    in Entertainment

    Join Cassandre Dayne as she highlights artists who take their works to the edge. On Sunday, June 28, 2015 at 2pm EST, Pembroke Sinclair will talk with Cassandre on her latest release, her work with the Forsaken Imprint at Booktrope and her fascination with writing. 


    She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns. Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming--the home of 56 nationalities--it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse. Her fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the lines blur have inspired her writing. Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.


    Join and enjoy...if you dare...

    "The Spirit of CONSUMERISM: Why CHRISTIANS Don't Own NOTHIN'!"

    in Business

    Christians are the ultimate CONSUMERS! In particular, African American Christians are the worse!


    In an economic climate that has grossed over $500 Billion Dollars in revenue since 1990, what does the Body and Christ have to show for it? How many churches own businesses that benefit the church as a whole and not only the pastor? What investments does the church have in real estate or small business? 


    Does the church partner with small business people in their congregation and fund their dreams and visions?


    Who will take a stand and demand that the tithe be eliminated and the a general fund be created for the betterment of the entire Body?


    We goin' in on P2T this morning...We can't wait any longer!
