It is time Americans take down the GOP veil of deceit and work once again to strengthen American Unions. Unions are responsible for everything good about working class Americans way of life. GOP lobbyist are responsible for everything that has contributed to the crushing of American unions. The top 1% of Americans own 42 percent of the USA. Without unions being in American history, think about what America would look like today. Our soldiers are on food stamps all across America. A lady dies in Florida because of lack of finances to purchase life saving drugs. A lady dies in New Jersey, while sleeping in her vehicle, getting rested up so she could work a second shift on her full time job. Unions are representative of workers. The union is a collective body that speaks and negotiates the wishes of workers to CEOs and politicians. Lobbyist are a collective body that speaks and negotiates the wishes of CEOs to politicians.
Without unions would USA have:
Ended child labor
40 hour work week and paid overtime
Worker's comp benefits for workers injured on the job
Unemployment insurance for workers who lose their jobs
A guaranteed minimum wage for workers
Pensions for workers
Healthcare insurance for workers
Paid sick leave, vacations, and holidays as standard benefits for most workers
the right for public sector workers to collectively bargain
Occupational Safety and Health Act
Family Medical Leave Act
Lobbyist are there for American Legislative Exchange Council, who are a body of corporations, headed up by CEOs whose goal is to develop wealth through massive unemployment of the American worker. This happens because of the GOP. GOP protects CEOs with laws to outsource US jobs, and bring in Foreign workers to do jobs, claiming Americans won't do the jobs, or can't do the jobs. Call this crap!
I am bringing power back to our voices via my new show called Mana Talk. Right now we’ve got some crazy-nasty-ass legislators, judiciaries and executives that are swaying and pulling the naïve and easily manipulated in our country in a direction that is not going to last for any of us.
I will be your man in the trenches, on point, and in the epicenter of what’s truly needed to bring our nation and the planet out of the heinous direction it’s heading.
It’s about time that we demand far more sanity, sensibility, and real fairness from all our public servants on behalf of the greater republic (not the 1%/corporations)… And seriously – who’s the public servant?
I will not stop until ridiculous laws and bills like Citizens United (a contravening title), Right to Work (paradoxical phrase), Corporate Person-hood (just sounds wrong), and some new stifling voter suppressing laws and other ass-backward laws and dark-aged bills must be completely dismantled and abolished from the United States. I will do what I can to put the needs of the U.S. republic and this planet as a heartfelt purpose and as a priority, but I can’t do it alone – we’ve all got to take the proper actions.
Please keep in mind that this is my first show, and it may not fly steady on the first go-round. With that being obviouis... I will be very open to brutal corrective criticism by whoever provides it. However, I will also do the same to whomever, if I deem fit.
So, please join my blogtalk every Tuesday and Thursday night at 9PM PST!
Mahalo nui loa,
P.S: Mana = Power

It's disgraceful that 80% of USA population who needs what Democrats offers was not sold to cast ballots this midterm. In today's economy, 80% of the USA owns a mere 7% of the nation's entire wealth. Most are the working poor.
The 80% includes most of our military, veterans, first responders, educators, retirees and workingclass. Our workingclass are in the numbers of 160million when our economy is healthy. The economy could be healthy, prosperous for all Americans, if only the 1% would share the wealth by hiring US workers, rather than shipping US jobs overseas for cheaper wages, and then bringing back products and selling to working and jobless Americans.
Politicians are not working for their constituents. Politicians are working to gain senority so they can further their own careers. Politicians efforts are to do as much or as little are required to protect their seats, and prevent a challenge. They sign on to play the game with both parties looking first to help self. They help self by doing the will of lobbyist. Lobbyist who are former politicians, and lobbyist who are lawyers for Fortune 500 corporations. After midterm elections which always have favored Republicans, all workingclass hears is what republicans want to get done before their run for 2016 and a little of what democrats need to do if they want to win in 2016. The lip service going on is evident that it is just words when it comes to pushing through jobs bills, securing ACA, raising minimum wages, immigration reform, LGBT rights, reproductive rights and gunsense to save innocent lives.
It's disgracefule that 80% of the population does not matter to Republicans, and approximately 1/3 of the population voted and of that, appx 3/12 voted for Republicans to return to Bush era. Wars, Stock market crash, bank bail outs, job loss, no taxation, less regulations & less litigation
In 1986 Randy Lanier won a sports car championship and shattered an Andretti record to become the Indy 500 rookie of the year. What most people didn't know is he paid for his racing dreams by smuggling massive quantities of marijuana.
At the height of the Reagan-era War on Drugs, federal prosecutors charged Lanier and his associates with shipping more than 600,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. from Colombia. For eight months, he hid as a fugitive in Antigua, but was eventually caught, arrested, prosecuted and a few days before Christmas 1988 was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
Under mysterious circumstances that remain sealed by a court order, he was released on Oct. 15, 2014 and is living in a halfway house in Florida. As our first guest, Randy reveals what he is allowed to about his case, speaks out on the necessity of freeing the multitude of people serving life sentences in prison for marijuana prohibition offenses and takes a look at a world that has changed considerably in three decades,
Local initiatives in California communities to allow for patient cultivation and to reverse bans and enact ordinances to allow medical marijuana collectives did not fare well in the November 2014 elections. On the other hand, initiatives to impose taxes on medical marijuana sales did very well. Our 2nd guest is Don Duncan, one of the founders of Americans for Safe Access and currently serving on their Board of Directors, has been up to his neck in alligators on this issue for over a decade.
As the chief lobbyist for ASA, Don has come to learn the intricacies of local and state government and will discuss why the mmj collective and patient cultivation initiatives failed, why taxing marijuana was so popular and what options are available to address the continuing problem of patient access to mmj on the state and local level.

Do you remember that famous trial in which Oprah and Howard Lyman were sued by the cattlemen of Texas? In 1996, when Howard Lyman warned America on The Oprah Winfrey Show that Mad Cow Disease was coming to America, offended cattlemen sued him and Oprah both. Not only were Lyman and Oprah vindicated in court, but events have proved many of Lyman's predictions absolutely right. Mad Cow Disease has come to America.
Howard F. Lyman is the Mad Cowboy. He is a 4th generation family farmer (and vegan) from Montana. After 20 years of operating a feed lot, he sold his ranch and started working for farmers in financial trouble. He was a lobbyist in Washington, and ran for Congress in 1982. He is the former Director of the "Beyond Beef Campaign" & the Humane Society of the US, "Eating With Conscience" Campaign; past President of both the International Vegetarian Union, and Earth Save International, and is currently President of Voice for a Viable Future.

Obama Chose a 'Spin Doctor' not a real Doctor as Ebola Czar who is a longtime Democratic insider Ron Klain as Ebola czar amounts to nothing more than a politicization of a world health crisis, political commentator and author Pat Buchanan."You might need an Ebola czar and you might need a doctor, but what we got is a spin doctor here," Buchanan said of Klain, who was a former chief of staff for both Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore as well as having held a host of other political positions, including a lobbyist for Fannie Mae."What I would suggest in this case, what I would have done or what I would advise the president is get someone like Gen. Leslie Groves who was in charge of the Manhattan Project. Now he knew as much as many of his scientists knew about how to build an atomic bomb. At the same time, he would knock heads and make decisions and get things done at the earliest possible time.No one knows why Obama chose a political pundit in the place of a scientist or doctor. Only the not-known-for-transparency Obama administration knows for sure.Obama will help destroy democrats in November election of 2014 by his Ebola Czar Ron Klain. Instead of Appointing a Medical Expert, Obama Appoints a LOBBYIST.What is Klain Going To Do … Lobby To Convince Congress That Ebola Is Not That Big A Risk? While the rest of other nations sent medical experts, Obama sent US troops, that will ultimately get the virus. Tune in Thursday at 11AM est for Much More..
From ebola to ISIS to Ukraine to a stock-market wipeout—there’s nowhere to hide from the Obama Doctrine; When it comes to ebola, it’s becoming clear that government “everywhere putting its hands to new undertakings” isn’t working out all that well; New ebola czar Ron Klaine is a long-time lobbyist and Donk capo; The threat of Ebola is real, and the threat of government malevolence is even worse; Americans are shaken by government’s ability to function in ways it should not; and will the sabotaged ebola response poke a hole in liberals’ theory of infallible government? No! It! Won't!
Join us this evening at 6pm est to talk about:
America has a new Czar, just what we need, another layer of bureaucracy a political operative appointed by President Soundbite. Even better, a lobbyist, an evil venture capitalist with no medical background. Dr. Doolittle would have been a better appointment. Ahh the Obama hypocrisy continues!
Is ISIS islamic? We are told no, yet they celebrated one of two muslim holidays Eid al-Adha, as did the other 1 billion muslims around the world, oh yea including the US State Department. What? Christianity is bad, Christmas is bad, National Prayer Breakfast is taboo, yet the Obama Administration celebrates yet another islamic holiday. Mama Mia NO Sharia!
Sec State John Kerry pledges $212 million of US Taxpayer money to "Rebuild" Gaza. Well we've heard that soundbite before. Since Obama has taken office he's sent $1.3 billion of US Taxpayer money to "Rebuild" Gaza. I guess Mr. Obama thought it was money well spent, the tunnels did turn out well! Sadly so-called mainstream media refuses to connect the dots - Hamas controls Gaza, Hamas is listed as a Terrorist Organization on US State Dept Terror list and POTUS is funding a terrorist organization. Under the simple minds of this administration I'm sure they are lamenting $212 million is a small price as compared to the $5.4 billion pledged to rebuild Gaza. If you buy that, we have some swamp land in Florida for sale!
