Don't be to hard on yourself, even our greates Presidents made GREAT MISTAKES. Extrapolated from Chicago Tribune-Perspective.
Feb 16, 2015 we celebrated President's Day but did you know that some of America's greatest leaders were racists, imperialists, philanderers, abusers of power, deniers of rights and just plain misguided people.
On the other hand, they also took bold and risky steps to keep us FREE and we might not even have a country if it weren't for them.
Human beings are like that, full of contradictions.
Cults of personality are the enemy of democracy...etc.
The GOOD and the BAD...etc.
FDR abused his power by...etc.
Abe, leaving citizens jailed...etc.
Truman, a letter to Bess his future wife...etc.
JFK, notorious and Reagan ignored...etc.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.
When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.
David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.
But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: Are We Creating Monsters? Are 'monsters' made or are they born? Is our society's War on Children and Families creating more casualties then we realize? Not only are we creating victims when we rip families apart but we are also creating new offenders who'll go on to create even more victims of their own, or we are creating more victims to be prey. The reality is that nobody goes through the trauma of this system undamaged. The question is, how much damage is really being done, and just exactly what is it costing us as a society? Join us for a very special edition of the "For Our Kids" talk show where we talk with Psychologist Dr. Jim Singer, Eugena Couture, author of 'Adoption Not An Option' and Dave Kyle, an expert on serial killers. He's done extensive research on this subject, including interviews with such notorious killers as Clifford Olson. Hear the real truth behind these killers and what made them who and what they are. The parallels to CPS and Family Court are beyond chilling. Just what kind of a future is our society creating? The facts will astound you. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Luke with his partner Butch having gone as far as they could progress in little old New Zealand in the early 70’s decided they wanted to explore the world of Pro Wrestling, knowing that the USA was the pinnacle. At that time they were known as “Sweet William and the Brute" - The Kiwi’s. First stops were Australia, Singapore, Thailand and then Canada where they spent 3 years, the last one working for Stampede Wrestling owned by the notorious Stu Hart.
They returned home in 1974 to do live tapings for the first New Zealand televised wrestling show “On the Mat”. In 1979 while working in Hawaii, Roddy Piper and Buddy Rose called the northwest promoter Don Owen. Hence the invasion of U.S.A by the team now known as “The Sheepherders” After ruling the northwest for 15 months they moved on to the NWA headquarters in Charlotte N.C where they became the Mid Atlantic tag champs in a matter of weeks. In the 80’s the Sheepherders were the most hardcore and brutal tag team in North America and held numerous titles throughout the US and around the globe. In mid 1988 the boys got a call from WWF (WWE) and off they went to the biggest promotion on the planet. The Sheepherders were now known as the BUSHWHACKERS who were loved by everyone. These eccentric farm boys from “Down Under” mesmerized millions of fans from all walks of life, young, old, rich and poor from all corners of the globe.
Among the many TV shows the boys were featured on was Warner Brothers “Family Matters” featuring the character Steve Urkel. After the WWF era The Bushwhackers worked in England and Europe. Butch returned to New Zealand in 2001 and Luke went on to work in wrestling offices as talent coordinator.
Mr. Gale Ives of Mt Pleasant speaks his views on the Water Sewer issue that will effect his and other home owners on Hwy V.
How this effort will impact him what might this be all about
Be a very interesting show. I have found Mr. Ives to be a force of nature.
Welcome, once again, to an all new episode of Talking Terror Presents!
EC Comics was notorious in the 1950's and 60's due its horror comic
books, Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror. These titles
reveled in a twisted joy of life, with ironic fates meted out to many of
the stories' protagonists. Well, in the 1970's Amicus Productions
decided to bring these types of stories to life on the big screen!
"Tales From The Crypt" (1972), a five film anthology featuring such
acting luminaries as Peter Cushing and Joan Collins! We'll follow that
with "Vault of Horror" (1973), with another five creepy tales that are
sure to chill your spine! We will also be joined by Grindhouse film
star, Edward X. Young, for who these films were extremely influential in
his life and career! We will also be joined by actor Bill Timoney,
currently starring in the current "12 Monkeys" television series, and
also very knowledgeable on the Amicus films! Be ready for a TTP Classic
people! Beware, and Stay Scared!!!!
