    The Mosque Visit - Union membership down - Jews not welcome at Berkeley

    in Politics

    Hr1  Corey Prez Duncan gives us an update from Baltimore and talks racism. Corey says opportunity does not come & knock on your door, you have to make your own opportunities. Who's running for mayor in Baltimore? AND... did our president really just go to a mosque that's on the terror watch list? 


    Hr2  Recap on who's out of the presidential race... Santorum, Paul, & Huckabee. For now. Who's next?


    How safe are you feeling now about flying? In case you missed it, a man was sucked out of a plane after a suspected bomb went off blowing a hole in the side midair. Hopefully, the Somali's security is being scrutinized!


    "End homicide & end climate change, & we end murder. THIS, we know.” Thank you Sheila Jackson Lee. Do the people who elected her realize how clueless this woman is? She's a US Representative for Texas!


    HOW many government workers belong to a union? Union membership is increasing in govt jobs but declining in the private sector. What's driving that change? Guess who's going to be paying those lucrative govt pensions?


    Americans are terrorizing them because they CAN'T assimilate. If you can't assimilate, why are you still here? Didn't you come here to BE an American? Did she denounce the actions of radical Muslims? Nope.


    Hr3   Social Justice doesn't include Jews at UC Berkeley, even if they want to be an active member of social justice movements and progressive communities! So much for safe spaces!


    Libertarian writer/activist, Michael Hausam weighs in on the Donald Trump temper-tantrum nonsense following the Iowa primary. And how unprofessional of Ted Cruz to hand out voting scorecards.


    Most reviews about the movie "13 Hours" said that it was a flop. Catherine Herridge "fact-checked" it. It's performing better than expected. Shocker!

    Do you want to do away with the IRS..... like Mike Huckabee

    in Current Events

    Think about it . the 1% that have all the money have it because the IRS has given it to them... why because 90% of the 1% are greed mongers like Bernie Sanders says they are.


    Americans spend upwards of $1 trillion each year complying with our 75,000-page tax code that is so confusing and complex, our government cannot explain it.


    Instead of tinkering with the tax code, we need a tax revolution that helps every hard-working American and eliminates the IRS once and for all.


    look at this https://youtu.be/7b7YrxMjsa0

    in Finance

    According to Gordon T. Long, Greece and Puerto Rico's collapses have one very important factor in common, bloated overly generous public pensions. No one wants to give them up or seem them reformed and the price could be widespread civil unrest. Greece has defaulted and Puerto Rico is talking seriously about it. What's the next stage in the global debt crisis? Gordon has some important ideas about it.

    The Coal Miner

    in Politics

    The nation pledged to the coal miners’ union in 1946 that, in exchange for their dangerous but critical work, miners’ pensions and health care would always be secure. Letting the UMWA pension fund collapse would be foolhardy as well as inhumane, costing taxpayers more in the long run while also endangering the government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.But the UMWA endorsed McConnell’s Democratic opponent in 2014; non-union coal companies, such as Joe Craft’s Alliance Resource Partners, are thought to oppose the measure.In this season of giving, McConnell naturally wants to thank Craft for the millions of dollars he’s given Republican candidates and committees. But McConnell should find a way that does not deprive retired miners and their widows of benefits they were promised and earned..kentucky.com Lexington Herald Leader

    "Good v Evil" on "A Muslim and A Catholic Wake Up in 'Merica"

    in Politics

    Good vs. Evil
    While we are distracted over a red cup or whether or not a piece of candy properly represents the holiday season, the folks in Washington DC, that are supposed to be representing us as the American people, are selling us out…and we’re none the wiser.
    Red paper cup vs. Our government, wanting to marry Isreal? Hands down it has to be the Red, paper, throw away cup as that is what represents Christmas.  Who cares about freedoms & liberty?  Since we are mindless and spineless, who don’t care about our freedoms and liberties, because the government will take care of us. NOT! We can’t seem to be bothered or taken away from our trivial bickering over cups and candy. Who cares about the fact that 1 in 4 children go hungry every night, or ignoring the fact that we have a homeless problem in which the largest percentage of them are vets, the very men and women that served and fought for the freedoms (what is left of them) that we enjoy. How is it that we don’t seem to have the funds to feed the hungry, house the homeless, or even leave the social security benefits of the elderly alone? Not to mention the pensions of those that served. Yet we somehow have the funds to fight senseless wars or even bring in Syrian refugees. Sorry forgot, a paper cup and a piece of candy is far more important issues than dealing with reality.Isa & Common Cal are joined by the guest of the evening Dr. Bruce Engelman; Senior Pastor of Triumph Baptist Church in Fort Worth Texas. Engelman is a Preacher, journalist, lecturer, Theologian, author, and highly regarded historian. He has taught journalism at Texas Baptist College and is the author of the best-seller "Eternal Flame", the only religious book written about the assassination of President Kennedy. Get ready of A Muslim & A Catholic Wake Up In ‘Merica live Tuesday night, 8 PM EST/5 PM PST broadcast on Coffee Party USA Radio Network.
