    Elijah Hamilton on "Abolishing the System of White Supremacy" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    We at The Social Spitball Show always seek to share the truth in stories and perspectives that are not being shared by the national and even regional or local media. Racism in the United States of America has a long history and there are those that seek a "post-racist" America. Our featured guest for this show is one of the leaders in those efforts.


    Elijah Hamilton, a native Californian & Oakland resident, describes himself as a freelance antiracism educator. In one particular video, Elijah, a white American, describes "Why Most White People Don't Speak Out Against Racism" (also the title of the video). You can find this video and others at his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AntiRacistUnity/videos. Elijah can also be found on Facebook and on Twitter using the handle AntiRacistUnity.


    In his videos on this YouTube channel and through videos and posts on Facebook & Twitter, he seeks to educate the masses on the misconceptions that have been drilled into our heads for generations. Elijah, like many smart anti-racist activists & educators, says that we need not spend so much time on individual racists, but to work to take down the Racist System in America.


    As he said in a recent Tweet, "One of the problems with white liberals is that we often care more about proving we're good people, than we do about abolishing the system of white supremacy." That's why more white folks need to stand up and speak out for our sisters and brothers of color, in order to move our nation forward together.


    This is the third in our Racial Healing shows. There is plenty to talk about. It is a very important show and should be a great one!!


    Let's KEEP the conversation going...

    Americans Unite to Stop Toll Roads and Save the American Freeways

    in Politics

    Attention American Transportation Leaders - It is Time to Stop Toll Roads and Restore our Freeways!


    Guests: Terri Hall - Texans for Toll-free Highways


    Patrick Hand - Stop  the Tolls


    Americans know there are better ways to fund highways than TOLL TAXES.  We know everyone's cost of living goes up with the cost of transportation. We know everyone benefits from transportation regardless of how many miles they drive on the highways.  We know it is wrong for our local, state and federal representatives and quasi-governmental agencies to sell-off public infrastructure to foreign corporations. We know "Public Private Partnerships" are nothing more than a major source for governmental corruption.  We know these individuals/representatives, quasi-governmental agencies and P3s are NOT working in the best interest of the American people. We know it is up to us to demand changes in transportation. 


    The time is now for Americans to come together to shut-down toll roads across the U.S.A.  We can shut-down the toll roads if we work  together.


    Here are some of the grassroot groups working to stop toll roads:



    Louisiana  http://www.stopthetolls.org/
    Texas http://tollfreehighways.com/author/thall/
    Texas http://www.texasturf.org/about
    Florida http://rollbacktolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://wideni77.org/
    Texas  http://texansagainsttolls.com/
    North Carolina  http://www.stopthetollroad.com/index.html
    Illinois - Indiana  http://www.openlands.org/illiana
    North Carolina http://www.notollsi95.com/position


    If you are ready to take back our country and our freeways, contact these groups and get involved!

    Clear Your Hidden Blocks to Maximize Recovery from SA with Carol the Coach

    in Self Help

    There are all sorts of ways to heal the wounds that contribute to sexual addiction. Tonight Carol the Coach will be interviewing Tom Prah who will be speaking about RIM which is a technique and scientific method of re-generating images in memory and re-scripting the experience to heal.


    RIM initially began as a synthesis of techniques that access the subconscious mind directly-Somatic Therapy, Ericksonian Hypnosis and Interactive Guided Imagery  has continued to expand and evolve. Originally, the acronym RIM stood for Deborah Sandella's Ph.D RN. book Releasing the Inner Magician so it could be conveniently referenced as a research intervention for people suffering with stress relatied illnesses and condition, Her study found that RIM significantly decreased the symptoms of stress-related illness and significantly increases one's quality of life.. As it has evolved into a scientific method, the meaning of RIM has become both: Re-generating Images in Memory and Re-creating the Inner Movie. 


    Tom has been using this successfully with individuals who suffer from Sexual Addiction.

    Join Patrick Weaver & Lynn Wheeler as we discuss the ruling of same sex marriage

    in News

    In a landmark opinion, a divided Supreme Court on Friday ruled that same-sex couples can marry nationwide, establishing a new civil right and handing gay rights advocates a historic victory.In the 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority with the four liberal justices. Each of the four conservative justices wrote their own dissent.Nearly 46 years to the day after a riot at New York's Stonewall Inn ushered in the modern gay rights movement, the decision could settle one of the major civil rights fights of this era. The language of Kennedy's opinion spoke eloquently of the most fundamental values of family, love and liberty.
