Back in the old days….

People actually helped their neighbors out.  Someone needed something done? The neighbors would come over and help. Someone having a hard time in life? Neighbors and churches would help out if they could.  The US needs a bit of the neighborrly spirit again.  Goverment help should be a last resort. It would save our country some money, and  perhaps get that spirit of friendship and brotherly love going once again.

Disrespect for our Fallen Soldiers and a Classy Woman

It is disgusting what Fred Phelps and his crew are doing!  He is the so called pastor of a church in Kansas who goes around picketing the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. These “Christians” say that its God’s revenge for the US accepting gays.  And they are also planning on picketing Elizabeth Edward’s funeral. Damn, let the poor lady rest in peace, after what she went through!  We’re  a fan of freedom of speech, but have a little compassion!

Sex and the Religious Right

It seems like the extreme Religious Right is more interested in other people's sex life rather then taking care of their own marriages/relationships.  They need to work on that, and their other Christian duties such as helping the poor and needy. Get your priorities straight!

Second Chances

This year in sports, there have been 2 shining examples of people making the most of  a second chance.  Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton missed 2 years in the middle of the decade due to drug and Alcohol abuse, and came back with a tremendous season last season, and was named the American League MVP.  In Football, Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick spent 18 months in Federal prison for dog fighting,  has become a model citizen, and in having a monster season.  The moral of this story is no one is beyond redemption, and we need to be a bit more forgiving, both public figures, and friends and family in our own lives.

The Evils Of Facebook?

 This article  is about A New Jersey pastor who ordered the married members of his staff to get rid of their Facebook accounts or face being fired.  He thinks that this is too much temptation and will cause them to have affairs with old flames, or start an affair with a new person.  In our opinion, this is going a bit too far.  An employer has no right to tell an employee what they can do in their private time. Also, if a person has to start an affair, whether it's online or otherwise, their marriage might already have problems. Sounds like those who think that kids that watch a lot of tv and play a lot of video games are automatically going to become violent.

Losing Their Faith-from Billy

I was reading this article  about 2 ministers that have abandoned Christianity and became Athiests, but still perform their church duties.  My question is: if you don't believe in God anymore, why be the spiritual advisor and minister to people who do believe?  It's a good thing that these guys didn't want their identities to be shown, or else they would be in big trouble!  The idea of an Athiest being a minister is like a Republican being given a leadership role in the Democratic party.

Credit Cards-Good Or Bad?

Credit cards, by themselves, are not bad. It's how you use them.  Just because you have one DOES NOT mean you have to charge every thing you buy.  In my ( Billy's ) opinion, they can be addictive, like a drug.  Having thousands of dollars of credit card debt can totally mess up your financial situation. money that you were saving for something else will have to go towards paying off the bill, and debt in general can cause tension within families.So, think before you charge!

Happy Book Banning Week

I was interested to see that this is Banned Book Week.  In a country with freedom of speech and expression like the US, you'd think that the idea of banning books would not exist. But sadly, it's here.  My opinion: I know that some subjects are not appropriate for certain age groups, and there are subjects that you may disagree with , and that's OK. If you don't like it, DON'T READ IT!!!!   If I want to read something, I have the right to do so, without you putting your nose in my affairs. DON'T FORCE YOUR  MORALITY ON ME!  You take away 1 freedom, and the rest will follow...

Stephen Colbert Testifies Before Congress

The GOP Civil War

Seems like the Republican Party has been hijacked by the extremist of  the Tea Party.  When you have someone like Utah Senator Bob Bennett, who is probably one of the most conservative members of congress primaried out of his job, you know that the crazies have taken control.  The extremists demand that all party members vote in lock step with their demands, and any bit of compromise is seen as a sign of being a sellout.  It remains to be seen if the Tea Party is a "Flavor of the month" Fad, if the sane members can regain control, or if the moderates are totally forced out.

Some Computer Security Tips

The phishers, fraudsters, hackers, identity thieves, bot netters and their ilk out there are getting more and more clever all the time.

Here's a summary of what one can do to prevent 95% of the attacks:

1. Use strong passwords. Make sure your passwords are different for different accounts, especially for your primary email account.

2. Run Firefox. If you must run IE, turn off ActiveX. It makes low level OS calls that can be exploited.

3. Run your virus scanner daily.

4. Lock your router down.

5. Check your social networking accounts regularly. If you see that you've made a post you didn't make, take action.

6. Same for your credit cards that you pay on-line. Diligence is critical.

7. If you use an iPhone or Droid, make sure that you have it screen locked. Most folks bind their email accounts and such to their smart phones; lose the phone, lose your identity.

8. If you get a suspicious mail from a bank, check the full headers. If you are at all unsure about the URL, google it. And don't click a URL in a mail - copy paste it to the address bar. It is possible to write javascript code that makes a URL go to a different place than it shows.

9. If you are unsure about a site, leave it. Contact the organization by phone.

10. Make sure you have your browser set up to clean out ALL data when you close the browser - cookies, history, all of it.

Mosque Madness-from Billy

What do you think of the proposed Islamic Center planned to be built 2 blocks from the World Trade Center Site? It has sure caused controversy on both sides.  Some say it's and insult to those that died on 9-11, some say that the 1st Amendment says that it can be built, citing freedom of religion.  I agree partly with both sides.  It my not be the right time to build it, even though the people have the right to build it.  Just because you have the right to do something does not mean you should do it.  I would bear on the side of caution. If you want to do something that has the hint of causing controversy, revamp your plans!

A lack of civility

In our previous post, we talked about gay marriage.  This is one of many hot topics going around theses days.  How do you discuss a topic like this with someone with a different point of view then yours without getting into an argument? It seems like with the advent of talk radio and cable news, there has become a lack of respect. You can't carry on a conversation and give your opinion without being insulted and called names.  Can't we all get along? What's wrong with saying "OK that's your opinion, here's mine, we have differences, let's sit down and try to have a meeting of the minds, or agree to disagree?"

Classroom Countdown-Courtesy of MSN

Classroom Countdown: 10 Things to Do Before School Starts

By Michele Bianchi
Before geese start migrating and autumn leaves begin to fall, there's another event that takes place to remind us that summer doesn't last forever: a catalog in the mailbox announcing "back-to-school" sales.
Don't get caught off guard. Here's how to be prepared so your child's first day back is a smooth re-entry and not a mad dash to catch the bus.
1. Trade Short Sleeves for Long Sleeves
Go through your children's drawers -- either by yourself or with their help, depending on their age and interest -- and box up clothes that are too small, stained or worn out, or too summery for school. After you take stock, check out back-to-school sales for new outfits and shoes. Take your kids along so they can choose a first-day-back outfit (or if they wear uniforms, a nice piece of jewelry or watch).
2. Dust off the Family Calendar
After a summer filled with spontaneity, it's time to start thinking about how to organize school days, including after school lessons, homework, sports and social time with classmates. Sit down as a family to coordinate your time, travel and logistics. Include your kids so that they can learn an age-appropriate level of cooperation and responsibility, as well as a view of the big picture.
3. Shift Their Sleeping Pattern
Staying up late and sleeping in is almost a summer tradition. Help ensure a good first week back by slowly shifting your children's schedule so their sleep doesn't get cut short. About a week before classes starts, wake them up a little bit earlier every day until you're back to a school wake-up time.
Also, take note of how much sleep they are getting. Between ages six to nine, most children need about 10 hours of sleep, while pre-teens need a little over nine hours. Keep pushing their bedtime back until they are getting a proper amount of rest.
4. Apply Feng Shui to Your Home
Finishing up a tree house addition or tidying up your summer garden before school starts teaches your child the importance of completing projects. It also creates mental space for the energy and attention that a new school year requires. Take a look at closets, gear rooms and summer toys. It's better to put things away now, before the first snow hits and you're digging bikes or inflatable pools out of the snow.
5. Plan a School Visit
Many schools are open a week or two before the first day of classes so teachers and staff can prepare lessons and tend to the grounds and buildings. Call your school and see if they will allow a pre-opening visit so that your children can be mentally prepared for the grade they are entering (especially if it's a new school). Make a lunch date out of it so you and your kids can meet their teachers and see their classrooms without the frenetic distractions that happen on the first day back.
6. Shop for School Supplies
Clothes aren't the only thing your child grows out of. School supplies change, too. Check out your school's website or make a call to see what you'll need, and stock up during the many back-to-school sales. Be on the lookout for sales on backpacks, courier bags and rolling luggage. Bags and packs with padded shoulders are worth the extra money and will prevent muscle strain. Also, check the weight of your kids' loaded backpacks: they shouldn't weigh more than 10-20 percent of their body weight.
7. Research Extracurricular Programs
Check with your school to see what sports or activities are offered at your child's grade level and then have a conversation before school starts to determine their interest level. If they are going to be playing in a school band, take them to a concert and see which instrument appeals to them. If they'd like to try out for basketball, take them to a game or shoot some hoops in the driveway while going over the rules.
8. Start Menu Planning
Eating lots of fresh, healthy food helps your kids maintain a steady level of energy and concentration. It's easy to stock your fridge at home with healthy food, but when your children are gone for most of the day you have less control over what they eat. If their cafeteria doesn't offer enough unprocessed food, consider sending your child with a bag of carrots, celery or fresh fruit tucked into their backpacks. Also, since about one-quarter of a child's caloric intake comes from munching between meals, these can also double as healthy snacks.
9. Schedule an Immunization Appointment
Children still need immunizations beyond the toddler years; even some colleges advise that students get vaccinated for infections such as bacterial meningitis. A quick check with your doctor will prevent any last-minute calls from the school nurse. If you've recently moved, call your old doctor and have your child's records transferred to your new doctor as well as the school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( has a list of immunization requirements by state.
10. Relish the Last Days of Summer
Enough with the planning! Enjoy the last days of summer with your child: the flexible schedule, impromptu barbeques and days filled with, "I don't know what to do." Maybe you can even squeeze in a Labor Day getaway. By living "in the moment" now, you can teach your child how to enjoy all the "moments" that make up those first days of school -- one of the many lessons your kids, most likely, will only learn from you.

From Money Magazine

Teach your teen paycheck savvy

By Linda Stern

(Money Magazine) -- Congrats! Your kid landed a summer job in this tight, tight economy.
Now, of course, he'll have that $7.25 an hour burning a hole in his pocket. That's where you step in: "Parents have a real opportunity to help teens learn to manage that first paycheck," says Mari Adam, a Boca Raton, Fla., financial adviser. "I can't think of a better learning experience." Share some solid financial strategies with your teen now, and your child may even have some cash left over come September.
How do you see your finances one year from now?
  • Investments up and job more secure
  • Investments up, but job shakier
  • Investments down, but job more secure
  • Investments down and job shakier
Have the tax talk
Better explain the harsh realities of gross vs. net before your teen gets any big ideas about what she'll spend her wages on. She may not yet understand that taxes will be withheld from every paycheck. So sit down with your child to go over that first pay stub, explaining how and why taxes are taken out, as well as the difference between income taxes (which most teens are likely to get back when they file tax returns) and FICA taxes (which they won't). "This will be a real shock to them," says Adam.
Take it to the bank
Help your kid open two bank accounts -- one savings, one checking. Spend time together comparing fees and rates online, looking specifically for a no-fee checking account meant for teenagers. You'll have to co-sign the accounts, but it's worth it so your kid can start learning to use an ATM card and keep his balance in the black. (Just don't forget to mention the exorbitant costs of using another bank's ATM.)
Your child may balk at an analog check register but might enjoy tracking expenses online via To motivate him, explain about the $30 overdraft fees the bank will rapidly bestow if he messes up budget calculations. And remind him that at minimum wage, it would take most of a day's work to recoup that expense.
Share the savings secret
Deferred gratification is an important lesson. Your teen may not be inspired to stash cash for retirement but may be swayed to the savings habit with a near-term goal, like an iPod Touch or a limo for homecoming. Help her do the math so that she'll know how much to set aside per paycheck to afford her prize by summer's end. Show her how to have that automatically transferred from checking to savings every pay period. As an incentive, offer to match your child's contributions.
Avoid micromanaging
Blowing that first paycheck on shoes that will be out of style before the next check arrives is a rite of passage, isn't it? It's also a "very good lesson," says Rob Gordon, a Coconut Grove, Fla., financial adviser. So let kids have space to make spending decisions, even if they'll end up with buyer's remorse.
There's nothing like having wasted your own hard- earned cash to make you more careful with your money next time.  To top of page

Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with RESPONSIBLE people owning and using guns. My Dad is a hunter, and own several guns,  and I'm OK with that. However, I do have a problem with total unfettered access.  Something has to be done to make sure that crazies don't get their hands on guns.  Yeah, if someone wants something bad enough, they'll find a way to get it, and you can't take away the rights of the responsible to punish the irresponsible, but........

Overprotective Parents

These days, it seems that kids are not allowed to be kids.  Due to the media, some parents think that there's a pedophile behind every rock. Also, they also think there's danger everywhere, and that if a kid gets online, they will automatically be bullied or molested.  At the other end of the scale, there are kids who are allowed to do anything they want, no matter what the age.  Kids mature at different rates, so that needs to be taken into account as well. Anyway, the point is LET KIDS BE KIDS!!!  All keeping them locked away does is make them paranoid.

5 Things Not to do when interviewing for a job

Courtesy of Career

Job searches, much like first dates, are about giving the other party -- in this case the employer -- a once-over and presenting yourself in the best possible way. Also similar to first dates, job searches give you several opportunities to make a single mistake that is a real turnoff.
You're on your own when it comes to finding true love, but for staying in an employer's good graces, we've got you covered. So put on your best clothes, style your hair and make sure you don't make one of these job interview gaffes that are certain to turn off an employer:
Turnoff No. 1: Arriving too early for an interview
The reason: Interviews are scheduled at specific times for a reason. Hiring managers have other meetings and responsibilities to deal with throughout the day, so they can't interrupt their schedule just to meet with you. Also, interviews often have multiple components. If you're scheduled to meet the hiring manager first, then have a conversation with some potential colleagues, followed by a tour of the company and finally a drug test, an early (or late) arrival disrupts everyone's schedule.
The solution: By all means, arriving early is better than arriving late. However, from an interviewer's perspective, arriving 45 minutes early and letting the receptionist know you've arrived is just as bothersome as showing up 45 minutes late. If you get to the interview location too early, go to a nearby coffee shop, take a walk around the block or sit in your car to pass the time. Checking in with the front desk five or even 15 minutes early is acceptable and shows the employer you're punctual.
Turnoff No. 2: Letting your desperation show
The reason: Although you have been looking for a job for several months or even longer, don't let your frustration become the interviewer's problem. A negative attitude that causes you to vent about the hardships of being unemployed can leave you reeking of bitterness and repel employers.
The solution: Don't get us wrong -- being unemployed can be one of the worst experiences a person goes through, and anyone who has been there understands that eventually you reach a point where you want to scream. Nevertheless, do your screaming before you get to the interview.
When you're preparing for the interview, think like an employer. Do you want to hire the person with amazing qualification, a great personality and the potential to grow with the company? Or do you want to hire the person whose primary concern is getting a paycheck, who sounds angry and who might quit the moment a better job comes along? Enthusiasm impresses an employer; desperation does not.
Turnoff No. 3: Being too aggressive with your follow-up
The reason: Employers want to see enthusiasm from job seekers, but they don't want to be inconvenienced by said enthusiasm. Two e-mails, a handwritten note, a few phone calls and a quick visit to the office just to see how things are going will not impress a hiring manager. That approach will scare them.
The solution: Again, enthusiasm wins over desperation every time. You need to send a thank-you note, and you can send both an e-mail and a postal letter to cover your  bases. Pestering employers doesn't just make you look desperate, it also annoys them. They don't have time for so many distractions and eventually the first thing they'll think of when they see your name is, "Oh, that's the one who wouldn't leave me alone." Prove you have common sense, which includes knowing when to stop.
Turnoff No. 4: Talking trash about anyone
The reason: You probably have plenty to say about your incompetent former boss and inept co-workers, but you know better than to say it. You've been told that employers hear you talk negatively about a past boss and think, "One day you'll be talking that way about me." You might forget that the same thoughts run through their mind when you talk about other organizations, too. If you're interviewing with the No. 2 company in a specific industry, you shouldn't take cheap shots at the No. 1 company every chance you get. Employers know you're job hunting and that you've probably been just as unkind about them in other interviews.
The solution: Stay positive. Explain why you want to work for the company. Point out how your experience has prepared you for this move. You don't need to pretend that your former employer is a personal hero, but you should demonstrate that you are bringing something from the company other than your 401(k). Rather than belittle the competition, promote this company. Say, "I know your competitor is doing this, and they've had some success, but you have the ability to do this and that to beat them." The focus remains on this company and also on your ideas.
Turnoff No. 5: Lacking direction
The reason: Whether or not they are micromanagers, employers like to have some trust in their employees. If your résumé, cover letter or interview suggests that you have no goals, you are not an attractive candidate. If you don't even know where you want your career to go, how can you know this job is for you? A cover letter looking for a job instead of this job implies that you're floating from gig to gig until you get bored.
The solution: If you're not positive what your future looks like, at least create a narrative that satisfies you. This job might not be your ideal one, but do you see yourself learning from it and putting you on a path to something better? What could you do after you spend some time working here? Figure out what that path is so you can show an employer you know where you're going. You don't need to promise that you'll stay at this position forever, but you can suggest that you are eager to learn and want to move forward. Employers like ambition because these workers tend to care about their jobs and ultimately improve the business in some capacity.

With the Gulf Coast oil slick, it's time to discuss a few things.  We agree that  we need to start looking for domestic sources of energy, such as oil, natural gas, wind, nuclear, and geothermal.  It is not good to be beholden to other countries for our oil, since the Middle East isn't exactly friendly territory for us.  On the other hand,  safety measures need to be improved here, in order to keep our environment from being harmed by accidents with oil rigs and wells.  Also, if  we are going to drill locally, perhaps the rigs/wells could be made more sightseer friendly, since who wants to go camping or sailing near a ugly looking oil rig?

The Court Has Spoken

Last week, the US Supreme Court Issued 2 rulings. One Said that juveniles could not be sentenced to life in prison without parole for non murder convictions, and another said that certain violent sex offenders could be kept in prison after their terms were over.  We agree on both of these.  When you are dealing with a teenager, there is a better chance of rehabilitating them, so they deserve a shot at freedom at some point.  And, since it's generally recognized that sex offenders can't be cured, this is  a good ruling as well.  I'd (Billy)  would rather see the law system use their resources in holding a guy that raped and murdered a 5 year old then a 15 year old who got a blow job from their 14 year old girlfriend.

Opinions On Marriage

Both of us have had relationship problems. Nicie had succeded in hers, but me, not so much.  Marriage is not something to go into lightly.  It's hard to find that person that you totally mesh with.  Sure, you're probably gonna have disagreements, but the key is to find some sort of common  ground,  and  don't go away mad.  That's probably a good reason for dating for a couple of years or so before you decide to settle down.  Then when you do get married, remember it is an equal relationship, each person brings their own talents into it.  Also, it's probably a good idea to get some sort of premarital counseling.

A Special Thanks

From Billy:

A special thanks, even though he doesn't know it, to my Pastor, Dan Howard. I run the sound system and the website of our church, and one of my duties is to record  the sermons, take them home, and upload them to our site. I thought that you, our listeners, especially those of the Christian persuasion, might like to listen, and get some advice if needed. From now on, we might dedicate one show a week on this!

Managing your money

Here are a few tips for managing your money, as  a lot of us need help!

1: Make A Budget And Stick With It! After you pay your bills, Don't blow what you have left over!

2: Avoid Credit Cards if at all possible. If you have to use one, make sure you pay it off each month, or as much   as you can, interest adds up!

3: Know what you can and can't afford. If you see something on the expensive side you'd like to have, save    up a few dollars each month till you have enough.

4: Let your kids be involved with the  budget process, let them see what needs to be done.

From Billy

As a lot of you may know, I am a big coin collector.  I thought for tonight's monolog I'd give some tips for the beginner:

1: Where to start:  You can start a collection from pocket change, having coins handed down from relatives, 
     garage sales, there are lots of ways

2: Recommended Books: Here are a couple of must have books for the collector:
       A Guidebook of United States Coins (Also called the Red Book)
     American Numistmatic Association Grading Standards

3: How to Store Your coins:
     I recommend the Whitman blue Albums, don't use the ones with plastic slides in the hole, as they scratch    coins.

   Single coins can be stored in plastic holder, just watch out , some plastics can damage coins.

   Invest in a good safe or a safe deposit box.

  And Last But not least:  DO NOT CLEAN COINS! It might make them clean, but it can damage a coin's surface.

You can Collect by denonination or design, the possibilities are endless!


So What Do You Think....

About the Arizona Immigration Bill?  Racist or Not?  We here at the show think it is OK.  The US Borders need to be protected, Illegal is illegal.  The US/Mexican border is prime real estate for the drug trade, and other criminal activities.  Billy is pleased that there is a provision in the bill that says that no one can just be pulled over and arrested, there has to be a reason, such as speeding or a broken tail light. Racial Profiling is wrong, in Billy's opinion. Ever see the movie Born in East LA?
