Peace Family I Am extremely excited about this program.. In the first half of the program we will have Bro.Jihad and Bro.James of Dynasty Hip-Hop Incorporated Mentoring Program (DHHI) which is designed to utilize hip-hop, and it's industry to educate, motivate and empower youth with the training, and skills to become more productive members of society. The second half we will be joined by Mama Todd Twala the visionary, creator, and director of a Powerful South African Musical With a cast of 32 of South Africa’s brightest and most versatile young performers, singers, drummers and dancers, AFRICA UMOJA – The Spirit of Togetherness, 20 Years of Freedom and Democracy Tour is a joyous celebration of dynamic talent, thrilling energy, great voices and sensual dances that sweep across the bright and vibrant South African traditional landscape. Traveling on the beats of drums, from the dusty streets of Soweto to all the corners of the world’s best and biggest stages, AFRICA UMOJA – which in Zulu means ‘together’ – tells the moving tale of indigenous South African music and dance from the earliest rhythms to the current club sounds of kwaito. Audiences all over the world have embraced the traditional love songs, lullabies and other musical expressions of rural life. They have also cried along in the city streets listening to music reflecting the pain of the migrant laborers and their families. The tale dances through sheebeens and the cultural melting-pot of Sophiatown. The heart is saddened by cold stories of forced removals yet the feet continue to stomp along with the explosions of gumboot dancing. The international audiences will relate to names such as Miriam Makeba (Mama Africa) and the late Dolly Radebe, while a thread of gospel music running through the tale recalls the huge helpings of faith and courage. This saw black South Africans through some of the country’s stormiest historical passages.

Amendment XXVII: Prohibits elected officials from voting into effect their own pay raise. Ironically, the "Ethics Reform Act of 1989" stipulates that automatic salary increases will be granted, unless the congress holds a special hearing to vote against giving themselves a pay raise! This means that no matter how poorly they perform, they get a raise, and although it's unconstitutional, they have an "ethics law" which violates the constitution and gives them an automatic pay raise despite the unconstitutionality of the law.
Amendment IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

LIVE ON NFTS - Friday Dec. 19/14 at 9am PST / NOON EST: IronE Singleton - Blindsided by the Walking Dead ... an inspirational biography about hope, triumph against the odds and inspired divine guidance along the way...
IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy® Oscar Award-nominated film THE BLIND SIDE; the biggest box office grossing sports movie of all time. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI & WGA Award winning, Golden Globe nominated tv show THE WALKING DEAD; one of basic cable's highest rated shows for viewership. IronE's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television.On the streets of Atlanta, the fight to survive is a daily battle. From the drug-infested corners of one of the city's worst housing projects, to alleyways filled with ravenous zombies-- Blindsided by the Walking Dead examines one man's battle to overcome the violence, drugs, and crime of the 'hood; starting with a young IronE Singleton determined to succeed despite an abusive mother, an absent father, and the temptations of instant gratification inherent with the thug life. Football and Faith in God become IronE's allies in his quest to escape and helped him reach for the lights of the University of Georgia's football field and theater stages. After years of struggle--failed businesses, small roles, and an ill-fated trip to Los Angeles--IronE snags his major breakthrough role, playing the kind of drug-dealing, gun-toting thug he would have become on the streets, in The Blind Side. When he is cast as T-Dog on AMC's international mega-hit "The Walking Dead", IronE examines through art what humanity is about and what it means to truly survive against all odds.

The Transformational Troubadour, Bridging Daily Life and Soul Consciousness ~ Bob Sima, Singer-Songwriter
The Transformational Troubadour is a teacher, a guide, and a mystic, but through the medium of melody. His music bridges daily life and soul consciousness. When Bob Sima leaves the stage – whether at a concert hall, a listening room, a spiritual center, a yoga festival, a prison, a conference or a hospital -- people are so deeply moved that they find it hard to express the power of what they have experienced. And many are changed forever.
Beyond the songs, beyond the voice, beyond the stories. He speaks the language of the Universe, the language of the soul, the language of the heart. He’s not just singing to his audience, he is the musical navigation that guides people to reconnect to themselves and to each other. That is part of the experience. Bob sings through the static and connects audiences in a very visceral, powerful way, changing the vibration and consciousness in the room. Audiences are truly awestruck, often exiting as if walking on a cloud.
Sima and his music touch the core essence common to all humans – a longing for peace and personal knowing. The need for belonging to something greater than oneself. The yearning for love in all forms – internal, external and universal. The desire to leave what was and embrace what is to come. He not only connects to his audience, the audience connects with each other. His music heals and expands the heart, transforming lives forever.
The unique beauty of his songs draw upon ancient wisdom and modern masters to uplift, inspire, motivate and gently nudge listeners to live life differently, to reach for something more.

Welcome to The Grumpy Gator Cafe' where I serve up a cup-o’ inspirational espresso loaded with the sweetener of cathartic satire for mature audiences. I debunk and remove the mystical bullshit that is perpetuated by the psychological and self-help industries here in ‘Merica: two industries that generally over complicate, over medicate and twist the art of healing into unnatural, your life is not-so-normal is pathological knots.
It is psychology satirically simplified for adults with open minds and souls who actually are interested in getting their head out of their ass and their ass off of the couch for the purpose of living life to its fullest.
Today’s episode looks at gaining authencitity while healing through your natural style. How do you remain sane; while healing the hurts and managing the fears that haunt your life and soul? It's a tightrope walk.
I have traveled to hell and back so often I have frequent flyer miles. I have learned a thing or two while learning how coping with and healing from the bullshit of life and I share my stories via my live radio show that becomes a podcast the minute I sign off. Buckle up and laugh your ass off while healing.

Taylor Mason’s quick wit, flawless delivery and polished material make him a hit with audiences of all ages. He is a ventriloquist, musician and stand-up comedian.
He has carved out a career in comedy and entertainment that has taken him around the world and into living rooms across the United States for the past 25 years. He’s won multiple, prestigious entertainment awards, appeared on a myriad of television programs, helped craft and performed in television commercials, wrote a book on ventriloquism for Penguin Publishing, and on and on.
He has a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Illinois and a master’s degree from The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. His experience as a comedy writer and performer has taken him from The Second City Theater in Chicago to headlining gigs at every major comedy club across the country. He’s as comfortable writing and executing humor for corporate clients like Microsoft and Wal-Mart as he is doing a show for teens or children on a Disney Cruise ship. He’s performed for countless church functions. He’s done bar mitzvahs and synagogue shows. He continues to sell out comedy clubs and is requested at college campuses.
It’s impossible to put Taylor Mason in a box. You cannot define his audience, because his act transcends demographics and niches. It’s a throwback and yet it’s contemporary. He’s inclusive, he’s genuinely interested in his audience and he’s 100% committed to every performance, every project, and every single job he takes.
There is no way to describe what he does, because combining ventriloquism, music and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed.
