    in Politics

    Why does poverty exist for White people? Fathers not being in the homes. White fathers? Black fathers? Hispanic fathers? Asian fathers? Whose homes are the fathers in? Are there children in those homes taking advantange of someone else's father and those children, and those households are not in poverty because a man lives there? People in the homes are too lazy to work? Families in poverty have never witnessed work ethics and they grow up depending on a welfare system that has gone broke?

    Independent Everything: LIVE with R&B/Rap Sensation ~ JC DaSINsation

    in Music

    Jeremy Jones, also known as JC DaSINsation was born with promise. Although he was plagued by typical adversity endured by many bi-products of ‘single parent’ households, he faced the odds, confronted the odds, and eventually triumphed over the odds. One of two children born into chaos and less fortunate, poverty stricken circumstances he was submerged into a life of adversity and hardship. Often, he and his older sister were left unattended for days at a time, lacking the essential elements of survival and nourishment. Although his roots are traced back to Petersburg, Virginia where his mother pushed him into this world on the living room of his aunt’s home; shortly thereafter, they relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to reside with his maternal grandparents. In 1986, a year after arriving, his mother was found deceased in the West End district from an apparent drug overdose. With losing his mother to death and his father serving consecutive life sentences, he was left to discover his own identity and sift through life’s tumultuous journey on a quest for self-discovery. Along the way he encountered the good, the bad, and the very ugly aspects of growing up without a mother, a father or an encouraging family structure. During this time the only viable outlet he had was music. Gangster Rap along with Rhythm and Blues(R&B) were his surrogate parents. From NWA to Anita Baker, he absorbed both ends of the spectrum. While being an avid fan of the culture practically his entire life, only in recent years has he began to pursue his passion for music and its creative process. Continuing to perfect and hone his craft, he also has thespian ambitions. Determined to become an admirable human being he remains humbled with humility. Seeking to enlighten, educate and entertain, Jc DaSINsation maintains a full load juggling music, acting, family as well as ensuring a stable environment is kept.

    Has Rioting Ever Accomplished Anything? What If I Told You That It Has.

    in Current Events

    Today on Coffee, Current Events & Politics, we're going to finish our discussion from last week about how government legsliation, policy and social codes created the troubled inner cities that seem to be social pressure cookers about to blow today.  We'll talk about a few contributing factors that we missed last week, such as the New Deal in the 30s and the Federal Highway Act of 1956.


    We'll also talk about riots.  Specifically, we want to answer the question "Has rioting ever accomplished anything?"  Because in the not-so-distant past, rioting actually DID accomplish something, and it was something very significant.


    If you want to know what it was and why it's so important to today's growing social unrest, bring your mug and we'll pour you a cup of strong coffee.

    Gay Marriage means 'equal rights' as global society descends into chaos

    in News

    It's a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things, but much fanfare greeted the recent "yes" vote in the Irish referendum on gay marriage. It was proclaimed an "historic watershed" and "marked a milestone in Ireland’s journey towards a more liberal, secular society". The vote was "almost like a social revolution that makes us a beacon of equality and liberty for the rest of the world" according to Irish health minister Leo Varadkar, who is gay. British tycoon Richard Branson was delighted to "see the people of Ireland voting to live in a country where everybody is treated equally."


    Meanwhile, violent, sexual abusers of children are still protected by the Irish state. Irish schoolchildren are still taught lies about their own history, Irish politicians and bankers get away with massive theft of state resources that have impoverished thousands, while Irish police are ordered to beat Irish citizens who protest the privatization of Irish water on the orders of international financiers.


    We'll also be discussing latest events around the world, mostly involving death, suffering and chaos.

    Join us this Sunday May 24th 2015 2-4pm EST 8-10pm CET.

    SATURDAY HIGH NOON

    in Politics

    What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county.  A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."


    So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.


    Here is a very informative article by Larry Weigel recently featured at the Women for Kansas web site "Bleeding Kansas – Revenue shortfall will require grassroots leadership to deal with crisis".  Mr. Weigel has appeared multiple times on Radio Free Kansas and in this article describes who, how and why Kansas has entered this dangerous phase of reactionary policies, self-imposed austerity and regressive taxation.


    Naomi Fowler's latest world wide informative "Tax Cast" from the Tax Justice Network (30 min. ca.) SUMMARY: Do our politicians believe in the societies they serve or not? The Taxcast looks at making the tax returns of our elected representatives public and the inspirational achievement of journalist Umar Cheema of  the Centre for Investigative Reporting in making Pakistan only the fourth country in the world to publish the tax returns of its Parliamentarians. Also: how the British general election demonstrates political capture by finance interests; libertarian paradise – the world's newest tax haven; and is Singapore trying to shut down reporting on its tax haven status?

    Teachable Money Moments for Kids

    in Finance

    In this episode, I'll discuss how you can use everyday situations to teach your children about responsible money management in age appropriate ways.  You can educate your kids about budgeting, prices, and sales tax at the grocery store.  You can explain mortages, interest rates, student loans and credit cards to your teenagers. Paying your children commissions for doing their chores will help them make the connection between work and money at an early age. Teaching your kids about money can be a fun, hands-on experience for both of you!
