Ponder This:

Real public servants are free enterprising individuals who, inspired, embrace challenge, take risks, and create, sometimes big, and often, they create jobs in the process, all out of their ideas, and self initiative...

My Guests:
Rodney Winters,  on the question, is divorce contagious? We'll talk about this theory, the impact of divorce on couples, children, friends and family.  Mr. Winters is the author of "Go Into The House," about his personal experience with marriage and divorce.  
Ralph F. Weber CLU, is an expert on health insurance.  He is an entrepreneur with innovative ideas for how to make health coverage more affordable, efficient and keep it dynamic and cutting edge.   He is the founder of Medi-bid, a consumer driven exchange for competitively bid medical services.  He'll talk with us about the Doctor's Tea Party event coming up in San Diego, August 7th, and his most recent post at Mediblog titled Canadian Physician Warns, "Obamacare Rationing is Inevitable."  

One of the Law Enforcement speakers from LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition), joins me to discuss the campaign in CA to legalize marijuana.  All of LEAP's speakers are required to be in or retired from a career in law enforcement.  This includes judges, police and other law enforcement agencies. 
We'll discuss who is funding the Yes on Prop19 and the No on Prop 19 sides?   Who supports Prop 19, the initiative on the Nov ballot in CA?  What are the arguments for and against Prop 19, and what is the truth of the matter, if you're a concerned citizen who cares about law and order, and protecting individual citizens from tyranny and crime? 

Courtney Balaker, writer, producer and director who is working in Hollywood, joins us to talk about her most recent projects and her experience working in media.  I loved a short film she wrote, produced and directed a few years ago, called Cute Couple.  More than cute, it's very clever and thought provoking.

Sat 7-24-10 Jack Dean joins me to talk about the explosive story that could be the match to ignite a voter's revolt against the Public Employee Unions and How Race Trumped jobs at the Obama Adminsitration's commands over GM

My Guest: Jack Dean of Pension Tsunami, on the story about the $800,000.00 annual salary for the City Manager of the City of Bell, CA. Could this be the story that breaks the public employee compensation and pension abuse of the public trust and budgets? Will it be the match that lights a fire under the taxpayers, to cause a productive and revolutionary revolt?
If Bell City Manager retires now, he stands to reap over $30 million dollars in retirement funds. He's not the only one with outrageous pensions. He's just the worst case by far, but we'll look at the more common, and yet still, very unjust overcompensation awarded to various officials and ex-officials, all on the dime of the taxpayer, who is on the hook to pay, no matter what.

Race Played Role in Obama Car Dealer Closures

By William Tate

The Obama administration, already under fire for unprecedented allegations of racial bias, faces a new bias claim from a most unlikely source: one of the administration's own inspectors general.

Decisions on which car dealerships to close as part of the auto industry bailout -- closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler -- were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky.

[D]ealerships were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority- or woman-owned dealerships. [Emphasis added.]

Thus, to meet numbers forced on them by the Obama administration, General Motors and Chrysler were forced to shutter other, potentially more viable, dealerships. The livelihood of potentially tens of thousands of families was thus eliminated simply because their dealerships were not minority- or woman-owned.

As has been widely reported, the Inspector General's study skewered the Obama Gang for strong-arming the companies into closing 2,000 dealerships, costing an estimated 100,000 people their jobs during a recession.

But the news media has ignored key elements of Barofsky's report -- elements that are far more damaging, if possible, to Obama

Racial identity politics and race based policies benefit the status quo and the self appointed so called leaders.


NAACP has been shilling for the Washington elite incumbent political class intensely telling us over and over again, how Tea Partiers are predominantly a racist bunch.
Their racial identity politics, and defense of race based policies only benefit the status quo. Poor minorities serve mainly as convenient pawns. Her...e's a boomerang video exposing them. Let's see now, will the NAACP and the US Dept of Agriculture (USDA) denounce the racists in their ranks? Will the main stream media that's been pimping the stories about racists and the Tea Party Movement go expose the racists in the NAACP and the USDA?
Why hasn't the NAACP or MAPA or National Council of La Raza done anything about the thives running the City of Bell for that matter? It's 90 percent Latino, and poor.
Here's a news report on NAACP Event and the USDA Official relating her bigoted actions

CA's $800K/Yr Small City Manager

This is from friend, RICHARD RIDER. I posted this story and talked about my my radio show on Saturday, but I just can't leave it alone. Everyone should know this story, and hopefully be compelled to find out what their city's manager and other city staff personal in their cities and counties, are paid by us, the taxpayers.

Richard wrote in an email blast today "COMMENT: Many of you probably heard about this travesty already, but it bears repeating -- especially with my indignant comments added.

Bell, California is a city of 37,000 low income people -- mostly ill-educated, compliant minorities. They've been raped by their own city government. Sadly, there's no better description for what has happened.

I've seen countless cases of politicians and government workers gouging the citizenry, but this example sets a new standard."

Here's a link to the LA Times Story: Is a city manager worth $800,000?
Bell isn't a big town, or a wealthy one. But some of its top officials are paid double or triple the salaries of their counterparts elsewhere.


Here's a link to a VERY short summary of the story from a Rostra blog entry Richard Rider posted, with his comment below it.

Thanks Richard!

Joe Vranich, The Business Relocation Coach on the accelerating epic upswing of businesses with large number of jobs moving out of CA.

About the Finance Reform Bill. Bill Wilson of Americans for Limited Government says thanks to this bill, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Treasury and Federal Reserve will have the power to tax and spend, seize property and redistribute wealth, monitor individual finances and arbitrarily declare which firms pose "systemic risk," all without any vote in Congress or the possibility of judicial review. Meanwhile, the legislation does not address one of the root, government causes of the financial crisis.

Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"

"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database

Key

Death of an innocent. Death or injury of a police officer. Death of a nonviolent offender.
Raid on an innocent suspect. Other examples of paramilitary police excess. Unnecessary raids on doctors and sick people.
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night. But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
