    BLACK people who served time for Crime, still paying the price Today when freed

    BLACK people  who served time for Crime, still paying the price Today when freed


    There will never be a revolutionary movement in this country that doesn’t fully unleash and give expression to the sometimes openly expressed, sometimes expressed in partial ways, sometimes expressed in wrong ways, but deeply, deeply felt desire to be rid of these long centuries of oppression [of Black people]. There’s never gonna be a revolution in this country, and there never should be, that doesn’t make that one key foundation of what it’s all about.

    Bob Avakian, Chairman of the 
    Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, 


    A growing number of states are pushing inmates out of prison in early release programs designed to reduce overcrowding and save money. But faced with a tight job market and few employers willing to hire someone with a criminal record, many former inmates are likely to end up right back behind bars.


    Last month, California began releasing prisoners deemed at low risk for re-offending. Colorado, Oregon, Kentucky and Connecticut, all wracked with budgetary issues, have instituted similar moves as a way to cut costs, while others, including Michigan and Mississippi, are considering similar initiatives.

    What Makes Schools Safe?

    in Education

    It has been more than two years since the tragic school shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  This tragedy caused New Jersey school districts to analyze their own school security policies and procedures.  NJSBA formed a School Security Task Force, which studied the issue intensely.  While there are no one-size-fits-all answers to school security, there are important findings and recommendations that all school districts can use.  Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses the task force’s findings with its two co-chairs, Donald Webster Jr. and Raymond Wiss, along with task force member Brandon Pugh.

    Religious Freedom or Freedom to Discriminate Part 2

    in Politics

    With internet glitches not allowing me to pull up my research I could not really do Part 1 justice, so, Part 2...


    I'd love to have some who listened to my archived show on this topic call me LIVE starting at 11:05 p.m. Friday, May 1.


    From Indiana's Pence to Louisiana's Jindal, right-wing governors are supporting and signing legislation that allows businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples. Pizza Parlors, Florists, Photographers, Beds and Breakfasts, and other business have said they would refuse service, or actually have refused service to same sex couples. Some of these governors are backing down from their own legislation. 


    Businesses are pulling out of Indiana, and other states - they will NOT back discrimination as a right. These businesses - such as Salesforce - have cited reasons that are all about diversity. 


    20 states have passed some form of religious freedom law - including Connecticut, and Rhode Island - which shocked the bleep out of me. Religious freedom laws are pending in 6 states - North Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii (seriously?), Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. Similar legislation has failed in 6 states - including Utah, which also surprised me. 18 states, plus Washington, D.C. do NOT have current legislation similar the RFRA's pending or recently passed.


    Do these governors and state legislators understand that states rights cannot usurp a persons' constitutional rights? "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."


    I bet you know where I stand on this issue, but I want to know where you stand - and why.


    Let's explore the rights - and wrongs of these laws.


    I hope you will join me.

    Spingola and Friends

    in Education

    Keith Johnson of the Newtown Post-Examiner talks about the Sandy Hook hoaxers in general and about his recently-released videos, Wolfgang Halbig's FOIA "Security System" Blunder! and Sandy Hook: Wolfgang Halbig's Far Away Eyes, both part of his WOLFgang Watch series. One might even refer to Wolfgang Halbig as the High Priest of the Hoaxer movement. He is certainly taking the focus off of the real victims.
