Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
I will discuss the recent torture report released by the US Senate in light of thr history of the CIA throughout my lifetime. Just like the economy, the CIA goes in cycles.I will give a brief description of my first hand experience with spying and its victims.
Tonight Uncensored Radio is Live! Join us as we dish about the Bill Cosby scandal. Did he really do it, and should he be held responsible for something he "potentially" did 20 years ago? Later, what about the CIA decision to release classified information? Should they have done it. What is your thought? Turn in for that, and more! You never know what we are going to say!

Army Colonel Gilberto Villahermosa (Ret), foreign policy expert, weighs in on the consequences of the Senate’s ill-advised decision.
John Warren, author of The Financial Rescue Plan for Nonprofits provides his expertise to help Tea Party and other not for profit organizations survive and thrive in this difficult financial climate.

Global Peeks looks at US repression, persecution and some lessons in the struggle against it in light of the police onslaught of Black people & the newly released Senate Report on the CIA interrogation of political prisoners at various sites across the world. We would hear Historic lessons & commentary by Political Prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, Activist Pam Africa & others as well as music of consciousness & revolution.
SUPPORT THIS ISSUE: Defeat Pennsylvania Senate Bill 508 – signed by Governor Tom Corbett – which prohibits prisoners and those formerly incarcerated from speaking publicly. The law targets journalists, non-profits and individuals who aid prisoners in communicating to the outside world.
This law is designed to stop the commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal from being recorded and aired to the outside world. Protect the First Amendment right to free speech.

The only exception to the spending extention, Department of Homeland Security. This sets the stage for the "Battle Against Amnesty Showdown" when the newbies arrive in Washington DC.
