Tough Talk with Tony Gambone and his guest Myra Hargrave McIlvain & Mary Black
Myra Hargrave McIlvain is a teller of Texas tales. Whether she is sharing the stories in her books, her lectures, or her blog, she aims to make the Texas story alive. She has free-lanced as a writer of Texas historical markers and had five books published about Texas history and its famous and infamous sites.

McIlvain lectures for all five of the OLLI Continuing Education Programs at the University of Texas, for Lifetime Learning Institute, and for other venues in the Austin area. The award-winning Stein House, McIlvain’s second historical fiction, paints a compelling family saga of German immigrants thrust into the bustling Texas seaport of Indianola between 1853 and the fierce 1886 hurricane that destroyed the town.
Mary Black is a former competitive sled dog racer, turned health nut. For 22 years I focused on training and nutrition for our canine athletes and after we sold "the farm" switched to training two-legged creatures after buying the local gym. While owning a gym was a dream, the reality was depending on memberships to make a living was a pipe dream, especially in a very small town. After networking with other gym owners I found we weren't the only ones with a slim margin. I found a way to integrate the organic supplements and superfoods I had been using personally for a year to become another revenue stream. Within six months we were generating anywhere from $1,000 - $5,000 in our appx. 100 member facility. Knowing other gyms could use a cash infusion, we closed our gym last fall in Northern MN and moved to Florida to escape the cold and coach other gym owners how to do the same without having to carry much, of any, inventory, and not creating extra administrative work.

On today's show, the nature and importance of our space programs, its influence on our daily lives, and the importance of the prestige associated with our manned space program as it is the hallmark of a "global power." I explain in the first segment how space program affects our daily lives. Then I discuss the nature of the Constellation Program and its brilliance as being derived from the Space Shuttle system and how Obama cancelled it abruptly. I also discuss the value of the Moon for developing and testing long duration space flight and habitation and mention the several problems that have happened concerning human factors in space flight aboard both Russian and American spacecraft and how America still has more research to do concerning long duration space flight that would be necessary to go to Mars or an asteroid. It makes more sense to return to the Moon to learn those things rather than rush out to an asteroid or Mars without knowing how to do it successfully. I explain the geniuses who caused the cancellation of the Constellation program, Huntress and Holdren, and why they were wrong. Finally, I discuss the minimal reconstitution of the Constellation Program by Congress in the Space Launch System, called SLS, and its terrible slow roll from Obama and Holden and that rocket and its Orion capsule won't be launched, manned, until the early 2020's and we could be flying NOW if Constellation was left in place.

ALL THAT BS AND MORE
Local issues took center stage in the statewide debate from the beginning. The evening’s first question, in the first debate for governor held in the Rio Grande Valley, came from Monitor editor Carlos Sanchez and asked the candidates about the reputation of the Valley after a surge of statewide law enforcement descended on the region. a in saying she would listen more closely to local leaders.
Wendy Davis reintroduced Abbott’s comments earlier this year — unpopular in the Valley — comparing South Texas corruption to a third-world country.a in saying she would listen more closely to local leaders. Then she reintroduced Abbott’s comments earlier this year — unpopular in the Valley — comparing South Texas corruption to a third-world country.
“Mr. Abbott, these cuts and the cuts that you’re defending that have left our classrooms overcrowded, that have left our teachers laid off, that’s not liberal, that’s not conservative, it’s just dumb,” Wendy Davis
Abbott brought up a local issue once more before the end of the debate. Arguing for his position in favor of strong voter ID laws, the attorney general referenced the federal indictment against two women in Hidalgo County who, according to an FBI complaint, traded cocaine for votes in the 2012 Democratic primary.
Carlos Sanchez of the Monitor said the clear winners were voters in the Valley. Other organizers agreed, with a nod toward even further electoral power in the region in future elections. The Monitor
I discuss the nature of the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death or Anti-Life and mention that the Culture of Death which is very powerful economically and politically. Ruben Navarrette in his commentary states, "Hispanics are single issue voters and the issue is respect." I remind you all that voting is the only way to get the RESPECT. I read an excerpt from Navarette's interview with former Mexican President, Vicente Fox. That conversation leaps into a new article about the Hispanic Congressional Caucus and how they crawfished on a demand for Obama to move on immigration by Thanksgiving proving that your leaders are more concerned with their own power which further fuels the Independent Latino Political Movement. That leads to the next article that discusses Latino voting and that fact that Latinos may stay home and not vote. That is unacceptable. Vote independent or use the write in ballot but you must vote! Lastly, I discuss the news about the American space program and how Boeing and SpaceX will be sending American astronauts to the ISS.
LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent Latino political analysis program presented in English for all to understand. I discuss Hispanic Heritage Month here in America. Then a news article from Rio Grande City in deep south Texas about a group of militia types who are threatening to block a border crossing in protest. I don't favor these groups and see them as mostly motivated by bigotry. I switch gears and continue to discuss the Obama administration's efforts to address the threat from the Islamic State army in Iraq. I point out how weak this policy appears to be and read how Senator Graham agrees. I analyze the nature of the coalition formed by Obama and Kerry and note the participation of Arab nations that receiver billions in military aide but other allies like Turkey and Britain are holding back. Why? Maybe because they don't trust or have faith in Obama to lead this effort. I suspect we will see this effort perform badly in the coming months. Finally, prefaced by another peculiar comment from Nancy Pelosi, I analyze from the Latino perspective the effect of the coming election on the US House and Senate and predict that the GOP may threaten Obama with impeachment in order to get him to comply with their agenda and; thus, gain more popularity nationally.
