    Wild Horse & Burro Radio: Howard Lyman (Mad Cowboy & Cowspiracy Documentary)

    in Politics

    Hosted By Debbie Coffey


    Our guest tonight is  HOWARD LYMAN, who was featured in the documentary "Cowspiracy" and is the author of the books "Mad Cowboy"  and "No More Bull."  After Howard stated his opinion in warning the public about the risk of Mad Cow disease on the Oprah Winfrey Show in April, 1996,


    Until August 1997, cattle were routinely fed the remains of other cows.  The Department of Agriculture and the FDA banned the practice, fearing the spread of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), better known as Mad Cow Disease.  But it remains legal to feed cows "rendered" -- dead and ground up -- parts of certain animals, including the blood of other cows, despite the fact that this practice may allow deadly illnesses to enter the food chain.


    Howard is a 4th generation family farmer (and vegan) from Montana.  After 20 years of operating a feed lot, he sold his ranch and started working for farmers in financial trouble.  He was a lobbyist in Washington and ran for Congress in 1982.  Howard is the former Director of the "Beyond Beef Campaign," past President of both the International Vegetarian Union and EarthSave International, and is currently President of Voice for a Viable Future."

    OUTSIDE, INSIDE A POLICE STATE

    in Politics

    Program Summary: April 25, 2015


    @Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast." 


    In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.


    Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."


     Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
    In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking.  On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."

    Insurance, Banking, and Finance: Effects on Policyholders

    in Current Events

    When Congresses main income did not come from Lobbyist or fundraising activites, perhaps loyalty to American Citizens came easier. While Main Street has been sleeping or convinced they too could become a part of the 1% by the many dangling carrots before them, basic Civil Rights have been tossed by the wayside, this includes protections for those injured in car accidents.  Join me, ESTRA in talking about how Insurance, Banking, and Finance are having the effect of eliminating payment to Policyholders on claims.

    THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL


    Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or somewhere in between, if you live in, or want to maintain a  reasonable rural presence in America, this show has something for you. After all, do we really need another strip mall or postage stamp lot development at every bend on the country road?
