SORT BY Relevancy
Professor Artemesia Stanberry enters The Forum to talk about the impact of mandatory minimum sentences on inmates, their families, and their communities and why President Obama should pardon non-violent offenders.
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show is Mike Riggs, FAMM’s Director of Communications. He is a former journalist, who has covered civil liberties and criminal justice policy for Atlantic Media, Reason Magazine, the Washington City Paper, The Daily Caller, the Nation, and other outlets.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.

In this episode we'll talking rasing minimum wage. In the wake of the McDonald's strike in New York for a $15 an hour start, should fast food or retail workers get paid $15 an hour? Should Minimum wage go up to $15 an hour? What are the benifts or flaws that may come with rasing minimum wage? We'll discuss. We also will like your opinions as well so feel free to call in.
What good is a minimum wage? Don't we really want a living wage? At least that. We will talk this over and the implications of both types of wage. Are either of them compatable with the concept of the human energy renewable measure? Then, more talk about climate change and its impacts on natural sytems.
Is it time for Mandatory Minimum Sentencing reform? Who is Marissa Alexander? Children of Incarceration Parents
We have our first Democratic nomination...Hilary Clinton. I don't think this was such a big surprise. What was her first political move; making the case for CEO pay vs middle class pay. She goes to Chipolte and forgets to leave a tip. I have heard all the arguments that Chipolte is not the kind of place where you leave a tip. Neither is Subway but if they have a tip jar I leave a tip. Since she is championing the middle class and better pay you would think leaving a tip would have been the first thing she would have done. I can't believe that no one in her camp bothered to do it or even mention it to her to do. I have been told that politics is more about public perception than the actual platform. We have a CEO in Seattle who has decided to take a pay cut so his employees can receive better pay. I don't have a problem since it is his company and he wants to provide an incentive to maintain his good employees but it sends the wrong idea to minimum wage workers who think they are worth more than their skills indicate. There have been other police involved shootings and people are marching for justice. You know how I feel about that but there are a few instances where I can see it being justified.
Any elected official who feels minimum wage is irrelevant and Obamacare is irrelevant, surely has chosen the wrong job. Elected officials who blocks Veterans bills surely has chosen the wrong job. Does elected officials understand the role of government employees? Government employees by all accounts should have the best interest of their constitutents up front in their every effort. There are issues individuals can and should do on their own. There are issues government must do because people can't. When an official's state has 17% poverty and 11% unemployment and he says minimum wage is irrevelant, and Obamacare is irrevelant, exactly who is it that benefits by repealing Obamacare and from not raising wages? Exactly what does Obamacare, minimum wages and Veterans mean to your elected officials?

This week on Beyond the Veil, we will be discussing the fact that different states are using the recent Measles outbreak as grounds to implement mandatory vaccine laws as well as removing Philosophical and personal exemptions that are currently available for parents with their children in public schools. Join us at 7pm Central as we discuss how forced medication is a violation of personal liberty, as well as the trends we have seen as a country sacrificing their own rights.
Recently, President Obama discussed the idea of mandatory voting. What do you think? Should people be forced to get out and exercise the right to do something that people died for 50+ years ago? If so, how do you go about doing it? How do you convince a country full of people who would rather vote for American Idol than someone in Congress?
Do you throw them in jail?
Do you fine them?
Do you give them more than just a Tuesday to vote?
We'll also talk about the tragic story involving Anthony Stokes. He was given a second chance at life with a heart transplant, but things we very wrong after his surgery.
