SORT BY Relevancy
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."
I often wonder if the staunch defense of problematic icons in marginalized communities is some sort of residual internalized self hate? Or desperation? Or both?
what would happen if we smashed all the pedestals of the rapists, misogynists, and domestic abusers in the black community?
Not to say these types of predators and abusers don't exist in white communities- but white people have more visibility and more options. I know Rape and domestic Violence are underreported in white communities as well, so we may well be consuming movies and music by abusers. But when consuming white media I can easily choose to watch horror movies not affiliated with Polanski. I can watch comedies not directed by woody Allen or starring Sean Penn.
But if I want to watch a nostalgic family friendly tv show featuring a black family and I ditch "the Cosby show"... I've got... "family matters". Those were the only 2 mainstream black family shows I remember from my childhood. Those were the only places I could watch people who looked like me, had hair like me, dealt with confusion about dating, family, growing up, and racism all at the same time.
Is that why the black community hesitates to shun abusers in our midst? Because we won't have any representation if we cut out the bad people? Or is it because we think we don't deserve better representation and we secretly believe the lies we've been fed about ourselves?
Is it a mix of both? Don't we deserve better? Both in terms of more representation and better role models?
Why don't we demand more for ourselves? Are we scared we don't deserve more or scared we won't get what we deserve?
This month we will explore the lifestyle of polygyny, simply because many religious communities are already practicing it. In some cases, the women are satisfied and in other cases the women are very angry. The purpose of a family is to create harmony between people. So, we will examine the right ways people practice it, the wrong ways people practice it and the best reasons to expand ones family by marrying additional wives. For those men who are secretly practicing polygyny with women on the side, it's time to stop it. The Holy Quran says one should have NO secret paramours (lovers.) Adultery and polygyny are not the same. Today we'll talk to men who have experienced the lifestyle of polygyny and discuss how one approaches ones wife with this very sensitive topic.
This month we will explore the practice of polygyny, simply because it is already being practiced in a number of religious communities, and in some situations the women are satisfied and in others they are very angry. The obective of any family is to create harmony between people. So we plan to assist in that process by exploring the system of polygyny, the right ways it is practiced, the wrong way it is practiced, and the best reasons to expand one's family and make sure everyone is properly respected. For those men who have been secretly taking on additional "wives" its time to stop the disrepect of all the women involved, and openly acknowlege what you are doing, for the sake of yourselves and the community. If you are seriously considering this option, you need to discuss it with your wife. The Holy Quran states that one should have NO secret paramours (lovers.) So how do you tell your wife? We'll explore this topic with those who already have had the experience.
The Sovereign Belief System
The contemporary sovereign belief system is based on adecades-old conspiracy theory. At some point in history, sovereigns believe, the American government set up by the founding fathers — with a legal system the sovereigns refer to as "common law" — was secretly replaced by a new government system based on admiralty law, the law of the sea and international commerce. Under common law, or so they believe, the sovereigns would be free men. Under admiralty law, they are slaves, and secret government forces have a vested interest in keeping them that way. Some sovereigns believe this perfidious change occurred during the Civil War, while others blame the events of 1933, when the U.S. abandoned the gold standard. Either way, they stake their lives and livelihoods on the idea that judges around the country know all about this hidden government takeover but are denying the sovereigns' motions and filings out of treasonous loyalty to hidden and malevolent government forces.
Welcome and Thank you for listening to COCKTAIL CONVERSATIONS on KLJN Radio.
Who handles rejections better? Men or women? Such as being sexually declined or denying someone an opportunity for a date.
On this episode of COCKTAIL CONVERSATION...We will analyze scenario #4 Marchless Madness
Giovanna met Floyd at the CIAA tournament last year and things became hot and heavy - mainly a lot of steamy getting self-acquainted conversations happened over the past year.
Giovanna planned to visit Floyd and had everything mapped out on how she would take him to this euphoric state and make him her man despite the distance between them. Secretly, she wanted a change and would entertain relocating from Virginia to North Carolina.
The time has arrived for her to go to North Carolina and she made a trip to Frederick’s to seal the deal. When she arrived, Floyd left a key under his rug mat for Giovanna; she prepared some finger foods and made some grand marnier chocolate covered strawberries so the table was set or it sounds like she was trying to get set on the table.
Well when Floyd arrived and Giovanna was lying across the couch, leaving nothing for his imagination. He looked at her and said I know you don’t expect anything to go down tonight? Giovanna was so pissed she got dressed and left within thirty minutes and headed back to Virginia at 10:00 p.m., a five-hour ride. How would you handle this situation?

And now here is COCKTAIL CONVERSATIONS on KLJN 107.7 Radio - with The Controversial Counselor, David Glover.
First, I would like to share my story with you. I became a model while still in high school. Over the course of my career, I was one of the “Most Unforgettable Women of the World” for Revlon and graced the covers of “Vogue and Elle Magazines” and numerous more. Yes, I know it sounds like a fairytale and yes; I had a passport full of stamps and was living the jet-set life. I knew something was missing in my life. I had to make a change.
I was getting paid tons of money for how I looked while secretly hating myself. While smiling and posing for the camera my thoughts often only contained recollections of perceived failures, shortcomings, or waistlines that were too snug. In retrospect, I realized that I was redirecting my inner conflicts of anger, sadness and shame onto my outward body.
Tetrad" Four Blood Moon: So….you may have heard on the news that there is a prophesy that the world is going to end...Blood Moon keep falling in Aries and Libra..Does the Moon symbolizes the Right Woman, and the Sun symbolizes the Right Man. the Moon has no light of its own but reflects the light of the Sun. Similarly, the Right Woman reflects the Light of her Right Man. Libra is the peacemaker, the one who sees both sides of the situation. Aries is usually portrayed as the warrior but it’s also the initiator, the energy that breaths passion into whatever it focuses on. it signals a time when all of us can use the fiery energy of the sign to make changes in our life...What are your theory on the blood is something big happening with the currency, or is the New World Order will be finalize is moon prophecy or hype? Beliefs in ancient symbolism, secret societal occultism, and ritual magic affects us all regardless of religious beliefs or practices.
Leaders of the world, including religious leaders like the Pope, answer to other philosophies secretly while outwardly they combine new age and biblical symbolism to exercise absolute control over the world. What is your spin on the blood moon?
Today we discuss SOLITARY CONFINEMENT and WRONGFUL DEATHS at at BlogTalkRadio at 3pmEST on Saturday, March 28. Call (818)572-2947. Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) has advocated for mentally ill Americans for ten years. Mary Neal's mentally, physically disabled brother, Larry Neal, was secretly arrested and murdered in 2003, and we did not learn that it is usual, ordinary and INTENTIONAL to use mentally ill people for prison profits or kill them until 2006. That is when Mary Neal founded AIMI. Please visit us at Facebook, Google+, and Care2. See also our blog "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" at http://DogJusticeforMentallyIll.blogspot.com . At Twitter, we use @koffietime.
AIMI's advocacy experiences opposition because mentally ill people comprise over half the nation's 2.3 million inmates, and prison investors in government seem to use the nation's surveillance technology and personnel to censor the advocacy. But we are moving the fight out of their hands and taking this issue to International Court this year to win damages for up to 100 impacted families. We find it impossible to abolish slavery from within. Google "AIMI vs. USA" for more information about the International Court lawsuit to win damages for neglected, brutalized, and killed Americans who have/had mental illness. Persons who have drug/alcohol addictions and the homeless are included.

The Dr. Pat Show: Change as a Catalyst for Transformation with Dr. Susan Allison.
Do you love change, or do you secretly hate it? Well, regardless of your feelings about change, it is the only 'given' the only constant in our lives, and whether we like it or not, it is here to stay. Dr. Susan offers ways to handle change more easily, with less stress and effort, and actually with more awareness and gratitude. Even the change that is hardest, the losses of people, jobs, homes and dreams can offer us the gift of transformation.
