SORT BY Relevancy
I have done several shows about Lymphedema and the grassroots efforts to get the Lymphedema Treatment Bill passed. This one came from an original airing of 5/1/10.
"Back in March, we had a show introducting you to the HR 4662 which involves the improvement for health care costs for lymphedema patients. Please join us again today to learn what has been done, what you can do, and what this means to you if you (or someone you know) has lymphedema. We need to get this bill passed in this year's legislation session. We will have Jennifer and Jenny on our show, as well as some other pertinent people that can add more to enlighten about this very important bill." http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/01/beyond-words-live--understanding-hb-4662
BEYOND WORDS LIVE is designed as a platform for survivors to tell their own stories in their own words.

Imagine if you were subject to all kind of restrictions when you went out in public simply because of your race color or religion. Would you rebel and say "why should I wear handcuffs and leg irons in public when I have done nothing wrong?" I know I would! Well my friend, if you would rebel, if you would stand up and say "that simply isn't right!" then you are against BSL! What is BSL you may ask? Well, during today's show we will be discussing BSL (Breed Specific Legislation, also known as Breed Discriminatory Legislation.) and why this type of law is problem legislation. BSL laws are not just a problem in the US, they are a problem globally.
Some countries have significantly tighter restrictions on certain breeds of dogs than the restrictions we see in the US and Canada. We'll be looking at those restrictions, how they affect dog owners, and how we can all work together to overcome this blatant discrimination of dog breeds that is based purely in ignorance. As always, please feel free to join the conversation by calling (646) 716-6583.
This Week on "What's Right About Men?" - Yes Means Yes Legislation in California
On this week’s show we will be discussing how turning our collective back on bad behavior has resulted in the new Yes means Yes legislation passed in California. Have we really reached a point where legislation is required for couples to engage in sex? How has egalitarian consciousness lead us to this point? And what, if anything, can be done about it?
Callers are welcome -We Want to Hear From Our Audience!

Dr. Stanley Rockson (of Stanford University Medical School) states that: "Lymphedema is a common disease. Approximately 10 million Americans, for example, have lymphedema secondary to breast and pelvic cancer therapy, recurrent infections, injuries, or vascular surgery." (2010) Imagine, if there were approximately 10 million Americans then, how many more there are now in 2014 (knowing that there is no cure for it as it stands to date)?
For many years, I had key advocates come on my show to discuss various cases and, especially, the aspects of advocating in the legislature. On January 27th, Heather Ferguson (one of those advocates) will come on my show to discuss some updates on those legislative issues being presented.
Today, though, I will open the mic up to patients, advocates, and caregivers especially to tell their stories on how Lymphedema has affected them. We will then share this with legislators to personally hear the many stories typical to illustrate the pervasiveness of this condition.
Please mark your calendars and join us on March 6th at 10a CST to share and/or be better informed about these issues.
Shane Krauser takes on the key issues of the days and analyzes them like none other - according to the rule of law and our U.S. Constitution. Are you ready to restore this nation to its foundational principles? Shane hits on the following topics:
1. Is America exceptionalism? Shane talks about the following video produced by Aaron Sorkin (Newsroom) and its contentions that America is not exceptional. Hollywood has once again bamboozled the American people and even conservatives are buying it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMqcLUqYqrs
2. What does it mean to be free?
3. Free market capitalism and minimum wage laws.
4. Piers Morgan is not done with the NRA. We're sure that the NRA is just shaking in its boots.

Disturbing revelations about the Secret Service, after last week's incident with a White House intruder: The right wing is quick to blame the President himself for the agency's disarray - but really, how much of the problem can be traced to understaffing and underfunding the people charged with keeping our President safe? Also: MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills look at the 2014 midterm electoral map, California's flurry of new progressive legislation and looking ahead to 2016. Political discussion from the progressive point of view by the MOMocrats. Produced by Engender Media Group.
This weeks show was intended to be about BSL in Ireland, but both of our hosts have had extremely full weeks, and little to no time to prepare. We refuse to talk about BSL when being unprepared, so we've decided to do a catch up show. We'll be discussing what has happened over the past couple weeks for both Chis and Janette, updating you on the dog fighting issue in Chris' hometown area, and of course, talking about all things dog. Tune in and as always call with any questions, comments, or concerns.
With Moral Mondays, Rev. Barber has channeled the pent-up frustration of North Carolinians who were shocked by how quickly their state had been transformed into a laboratory for conservative policies. "He believed we needed to kind of burst this bubble of 'There's nothing we can do for two years until the next election,'" explains Al McSurely, a longtime NAACP organizer. But what may be most notable about Barber's new brand of civil rights activism is how he's taken a partisan fight and presented it as an issue that transcends party or race—creating a more sustained pushback against Republican overreach than anywhere else in the country.
Barber fears that Republican lawmakers' efforts to expand private-school vouchers will resegregate the very schools his parents worked to integrate. As NAACP president, he helped pass legislation establishing same-day voter registration and expanding death penalty appeals—bills that Republicans repealed in the last legislative session.
Through landmark legislation that passed in Springfield, IL last November, Same Sex Marriage has come in effect as of June 1, 2014. With this new legislation comes many questions and even more gray areas that have yet to be discussed or tested by the court and employers. Questions such as:
What benefits are there for same sex couples?
How may business be affected by marriage equality?
Now that there is marriage equality, how will these couples be impacted in the courtroom in case of a dissolution of their own?
To learn more about these questions and more, tune in to this podcast with Family Law attorney, Jenet Pequeno of Lavelle Law, Ltd.
