SORT BY Relevancy
American Vernacular takes aim at the hypocrisy of Facebook and its less-than-rightful owner, Mark Zuckerberg, the company's support of right-wing social and political agendas, its insidious suppression of 1st amendment rights according to its code of decency and outsourced content control, and why Facebook has become the most sophisticated weapon for the killing free speech and expression in American politics while dismantling the fundamental ideals of the US Constitution. Can money be allowed to buy that?

This week’s show
Stereotyping Islam hurts us all
October 6th, 2014
I am a fan of Bill Maher. He has the canny ability to break through the minutia. His political acumen is generally very good and well thought out. He does however have a weak spot that he needs to correct.
Bill Maher has a following young and not so young. His display of a virulent Islamaphbia is something that Liberals of all stripes must call out and call out strongly.
Over the last several months his rhetoric has been over the top. It is not good for our country. Moreover, he is feeding into the Right Wing politics that have led our country astray.

Topher Keene recently had to come to terms with the decision that that his morals and beliefs around education don't align with the formal education system, so he left school teaching to work in community groups and private coaching. It was an incredibly difficult decision and now he is trying to make an impact through helping teachers to achieve as much as they can from within the system. He will discuss the dilemma of leaving the profession he loves because he loved it a little too much.
Ebola is a disease of humans and other primates caused by ebolaviruses. Signs and symptoms typically start within 21 days after contracting the virus; early symptoms include: a fever, sore throat, muscle pain and headaches; later symptoms that show up include: vomiting, diarrhea and rash. The later symptoms come about because of malfunction of the liver and kidneys and some victims begin to bleed internally. Death, due to low blood pressure and fluid loss can occur as early as one week after symptoms appear. The virus is acquired by contact with blood or body fluids of an infected person, animal or direct contact with a recently contaminated item.
Spread through the air has not been documented in the natural environment. Fruit bats are believed to be the normal carrier of ebolaviruses in nature. Humans and other animals can become infected by contact with living or dead bats or dead animal that has been infected by bats. Once a human is infected, the virus can be spread between people. Male survivors may be able to transmit the disease via semen for two months. Blood samples are tested for viral antibodies, viral RNA, or the virus itself to confirm the diagnosis.
Prevention includes handling potentially infected items while wearing protective clothing and washing hands when around a person with the disease. Medical personnel who handle samples of body fluids and tissues from people with the disease should take special caution.
No specific treatment for the disease has been presented to the health community. The disease has a high risk of death with the virus killing, on average, 50% of those infected. The World Health Organization first discussed Ebola as a disease in 1976. The largest outbreak to date is the current 2014 outbreak affecting the countries, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia in Africa. As of October 22nd 2014, 9,964 cases with 4,881 deaths have been reported.
WGAG RADIO AND HOT DAMN POLITICS PRESENT "THE GODFATHER (NOVEL)"
The Godfather is a crime novel written by Italian American author Mario Puzo, originally published in 1969 by G. P. Putnam's Sons. It details the story of a fictitious Mafia family based in New York City (and Long Beach, New York), headed by Don Vito Corleone, who became synonymous with the Italian Mafia. The novel covers the years 1945 to 1955, and also provides the back story of Vito Corleone from early childhood to adulthood.
Forty two years after its release, The Godfather remains on our radar. The world has changed dramatically since 1972. But The Godfather still shines on our cultural skyscape, an immoveable lodestar which even four decades later tempts and thrills, and even educates.
