SORT BY Relevancy
In 2012, 47 million nonelderly Americans were uninsured. This is not a statistic. This is a crisis.
Join us and our special guest Al Gladyck, in a discussion about the issues of our current healthcare system, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA), the Expanded & Improved Medicare For All Act (H.R. 676), and the likelihood of single payer Medicare-for-all happening in our lifetime.
About our guest:
Al Gladyck is a retired auto worker, UAW member from Detroit, MI. Al worked for 18 years putting parts on cars, 15 years changing light bulbs and 4 years in between as a computer programmer.
Al’s health care activism came in late 2008 or early 2009, when he ran into an old friend from his Chrysler days. His friend gave him a copy of Medicare For All (HR676) and asked him if he wanted to help get healthcare for everyone:
“I read it. Until then the only thing I knew about healthcare was my insurance card.”
Al lives in Clinton Twp, MI, with his wife, a retired elementary public school teacher.

America can afford Medicare for all
Last week while performing my engineering duties on KPFT’s Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig, a rather disturbing call came from a caller. The caller was not a bad person. The caller was not ill willed. The caller simply bought into the tenet that the mythical free market can solve all of America and the world’s problems.
I do not mind folks having different ideological beliefs in most segments of our economy. In fact it may even be a great experiment to show what works effectively.
Where these ideologies cause pain, financial distress, or deaths unnecessarily to our fellow human beings, to our fellow Americans, one should not leave it up to some unseen, unknown, or so far failed market.
When the caller implied that morality had no role in the implementation of healthcare, I was left flabbergasted. He seemed to be of the belief that somehow there was some intrinsic benevolence to our mythical free market.
There are grey areas in every debate. However there are areas where there are absolutes. Healthcare is one of the areas with absolutes. Those who want a complete mythical free market answer to healthcare have already been proven wrong. Americans need not have had to go through the past decades of wasteful medical spending and medical robbery. Simple arithmetic had the answer.
There is only one solution that makes mathematical sense. It is Medicare for all.
30 minutes is not enough time to cover this topic, so as I mentioned on my show Monday, May 30, Medicare for All is a multi part series. Tuesday's show I'll continue to discuss - hopefully with a few callers who will be able to get through - the right-wing lie of so-called disasterous government controlled health care in other countries; so-called death panels; our Veterans health care system - why our vets should be able to go to any hospital, anywhere, and receive the best care offered for their ills or injuries; how our Medicare and Medicaid systems work - and don't work, and why I feel everyone should pay into a single payer system - everyone - or it won't work. I will also touch upon how we are paying the entire insurance bill for members of congress - even though many of us can't afford our OWN insurance. That one baffles me. Hope you will join me.
You are invited to call in to speak with the host on air (818) 572-2947. We praise God for His unspeakable gift, Jesus Christ, His only begotten son. We celebrate the birth of our Lord and savior this week. We thank Him for many blessings and request that He give greater understanding that ALL lives matter. Because all lives matter, all murders matter and should be treated with equal justice. What is a Christian's role in working for equal justice? Proverbs 31:8-9 gives God's answer. Nobody deserves torture or death. This is especially true of the "least" among us. Such as we do unto ONE of the least of these, His brethen, we do also unto Him (Matt. 25:40). See the poem below.
Jesus Christ's Christmas in Solitary
At Christmastime it seems so cold
to lock sick people in the hole
Mental illness is their crime
Over a million doing hard time
We sing carols about Emanuel
and His blessed Mother Mary
But Jesus' left the manger now
He's locked in solitary
"Whatever you do to the least of these,
you do also to me"
Christ shivers in His lonely cell
Every sick prisoner is He
What will we do to rescue our Lord
and save Him from His plight?
God gave His Son to restore us all
Let's treat His brethren right

This is the season for all to understand this gift of life. It is a great opportunity for those who have misappropiated what Christmas means; giving them a chance to know the truth. We know that the world's view is all centered around the nature of self and what it wants. Gifts given and received all in the name of greed, need and want for more. This way clouds the true essence of christmas and why it exists. One assuming he has this gift and does not will be detriment in the end. Tune into this teaching and understand "THIS GIFT" that we are talking about and the power that comes upon those who truly has it.
B.L.I.F. Network presents Firm Foundation with our host Evangelist Owen Bruce. This episode is part 5 in a series where we consider what faith accomplished in Hebrews chapter 11 and how that applies to our lives and our walk of faith today. This episode we will focus on Hebrews 11:8-10 and see how Abraham was called and led by God on a tremendous journey of faith. Where is God leading you in your life at this point in time? Sometimes it is not clear to us what the next step is. This episode will remind us that it's not always about knowing what lays ahead but rather it's about trusting the One who is leading the way. Please tune in and be built up in your faith!
"By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going." (Hebrews 11:8, ESV)

A firestorm of controversy surrounds comedian Bill Cosby after multiple allegations have surfaced claiming that he sexually assaulted numerous women, with alleged incidents dating as far back as 1969.
The 77-year-old is known around the world for his role as the lovable father Heathcliff Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show, and for having a stand-up comedy career that spans five decades. However, beginning in 2004, various claims of sexual assault and date rape began being leveled against Cosby. He has never been charged in any criminal case regarding any of these accusations, and through attorneys has repeatedly denied that any of the allegations are true.
This case first received attention in 2002. Many were disappointed and surprised at his behavior and many of taken a stance and have come to his defense noting that these women are looking for 30 seconds of fame, if this happend why did they wait this long to say something and some even think that these women are trying to destroy his career. Why? What do YOU think? Did Cliff Huxtable fool us all?
