    Homosexuality: An Illness, A Curse, A Choice or A Birth Condition?

    in Women

    Homosexuality is often condemned or feared but rarely understood. Throughout history, there have been many notable men and women who achieved greatness publicly but kept their personal lives private because they were homosexual. A special exhibit is traveling across the country entitled The Legacy Project which honors those men and women who were often misunderstood and even forced into secrecy because of their sexuality - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender.  Today's guest, Victor Salvo, Founder and Executive Director of The Legacy Project, discusses the exhibit and the legacy of the LGBT community.

    Attacking the Urban Digital Divide – with Vigor!

    in Internet

    There is a huge need to put our urban broadband house in order. ConnectHome is the Obama administration’s latest salvo to narrow the gap between the digital have’s and the have not’s, particularly in urban areas.

    Michael Liimatta, newly appointed Manager of ConnectHome by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, lays out the goals and strategies for the agency in the upcoming months. ConnectHome works with ISPs, non-profits and the private sector to offer broadband access, technical training, digital literacy programs, and devices for residents in assisted housing units in 28 communities across the nation.

    The media focuses coverage on rural broadband network issues, but there is an equal need in urban areas for improved broadband infrastructure and aggressive broadband adoption activities. Liimatta brings valuable some of the lessons from his broadband adoption experience in Kansas City as co-founder and CEO of Connecting for Good.

    Our discussion will include suggestions for how communities can partner with HUD so that ConnectHome gets the most impact possible for its broadband efforts. Liimatta also highlights state and federal grant programs, foundations and communities’ broadband efforts can facilitate urban broadband deployment.

    in Politics Progressive


    Today's Audio Predicated On Famous Germany Protestant Pastor, MARTIN NIEMÖLLER--His Iconic Poem Starts Out With - "FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS.."

    Niemöller (1892-1984) prominent Protestant pastor emerged as outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler--spent last 7 yrs Nazi rule in concentration camps, beg. in 1937

    Niemöller best remembered for the following quotation:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists - I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist

    Then they came for the Jews - I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew

    Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me

    Donald Trump Coming After You-Make No Mistake About That! He'll Be Coming After Anyone Who Opposes Him Or Who Espouses Differing Beliefs-He No Ordinary School Yard Bully-He "Night Stick" Of New Order, Cudgle That Will Usher In An Age Of Intimidation, Aggression & Reckoning!

    Leather Jackets & Jack Boots Are Not That Far Behind-Beneath That Upper West Side, Benevolently Beaming, Comfortably Rich Gaze Is The Pile-Driver Behind The Next Wave Of Conservative Movement That Will Lay Waste To Virtually All Advances Of Recognizable Politically Progressive Progress.

    The Muslim Enemy Is Just Opening Salvo. Many More Enemies To Follow & All Handled With Same Draconian Approach. Trump Is An Upper East-Side Hitler Masquerading As Legitimate Political Actor.

    For Political Party To Spawn Candidate like this-Enormously Distressing. That Party Has NO Real Legitimacy! GOP-Take AwayThe 3rd Letter-The Letter "P"-Your Left With "GO" - As In, Just Go!

    in Comedy

    The Holidays are fast approaching and that means it's time for Matt and Jay to help folks deal with the pressures and stress of family and travel. We're gonna give you some tips on how to make your travel much easier and more enjoyable. Plus, we know that there really is such a thing as too much family time so we'll help you out with that too.

    The Holidays also mean several other important things. The weather is turning colder and it won't be long before global warming is proven to be a hoax when it gets bitterly cold and snows in the northern parts of the U.S. We'll help you prepare for the White Death! Most importantly the Holidays mean the War on Christmas is raging once again. Starbucks fired the first salvo of 2015 with their offensive red cups. Needless to say Donald Trump is all over this outrage and he'll be here to discuss it.

    And it's almost time for Jay to make his annual trip to beautiful, mysterious and exotic Omaha, Nebraska for Thanksgiving.

    Planned Parenthood Under Attack - Again

    in Politics Progressive

    Two weeks ago, a shadowy group the Center for Medical Progress released a deceptively edited "sting" video against Planned Parenthood, which has become the opening salvo in yet another battle to defund the non-profit provider of reproductive health services. This week, the GOP in the Senate unveiled a bill that they hope will "ACORN" the group once and for all. MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli, and Donna Schwartz Mills weigh in.
