    According to Gleason, too many U.S. officials prefer to profit off rogue states instead of opposing their nuclear programs and protecting our country from the very real possibility that terrorists will stage a nuclear bombing on American soil. He takes no prisoners in establishing how time and time again both the Bush and Obama administrations have placed politics and profit margins over public safety: Out of office, Donald Rumsfeld worked for a company that tried to sell nuclear reactors to North Korea; Dick Cheney's firm, Halliburton, helped to build up Iran and Iraq's energy sectors, and President Obama's administration is assisting in efforts to sell high-tech nuclear reactors to Saudi A...

    I've never been just a "Jock." Radio has always been my performance. Not a gig. Not a job. To reach listeners its been my 34 year goal to locate the keys that opens their imagination.

    A great friend once told me that God gives you three big breaks in life. The goal is to catch the break before it disappears. What is success? In 1985 I penned out a song that was intended to rip from my soul what the razor blades couldn't. Accepted Behavior Of Randomly Tight Invitations Of Numbness. The problem with being creative is the constant fear of the next step being the worst pain ever felt.

    I've always believed the next great writer's holding classic American novels will be the voices hidden away in places of assumed safety. It takes guts to write. Passion to bring chapters together. Loyalty and determination to push your book toward an editor. And sheer insanity to make it available for the world to attach their Kindles to. Tammy Darnell paints more than just a picture of a real America, She's lived the life and wastes no time in sharing the funny tales of what its like to be a waitress. Laughter, Life Lessons and Logic from the Culinary Catwalk Diva Queen of the Waitress World: For anyone who eats or works in a restaurant, Tammy Darnell thinks that reading her Laughter, Life ...

    The choice to write isn't always a free form given. No day passes. Thousands of unknowing people walk forward. Dropping the fruits of their imagination off onto paths worn out by judgment and disbelief in the writing self that vows to live unprotected.

    In Chapter Five John sits in Facts the Figure's New York recording studio staring at the numerous awards his friend has picked up over the years. Although he has troubles grasping onto the reasons of there being a celebration. John envisions the opportunity to sing. Not to piece back together a past that had been shattered. But to invite a woman found in the reflection of the highly polished award to dance.

    I've studied religion and spirituality my entire life. Native American to Buddhism. Christianity to Hinduism. Americanism to Corporate Success-ism. Being a second degree black belt in martial arts is often confused with breaking bricks and landing solid kicks. But to live the path means communication. With a self that most in this nation continue to run from. Erik Storlie's book Just Go Deep And Take Plenty Of Root serves an open door to explore. http://www.amazon.com/Deep-Take-Plenty-Root-Prairie-Norwegian/dp/1482695987/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1383936011&sr=8-1&keywords=erik+storlie

    There are too many words spewing separated expressions onto a universe designed to share stories. Tall tales fall from pages nicknamed Tweet and Yahoo Messaging. If you don't think we were born to write. Then why are there hundreds of millions of people blurting out their whereabouts on something called Face Book? What if the next great novel came from the innocence of discovering you had the ability to write?

    As if we were in a bookstore along side a crowded holiday shopper's endless demands. Up front a man reads from the pages that grew out of him. In this chapter John and Tailor the Mender are walking through New York and the scent of a fresh bagel consumes their imagination causing John to giveaway his key that granted him permission to change people's lives.

    I've stood of twenty years of writers and readers sharing the journey of putting pen to paper. Reading from the pages is always exciting. It allows anyone willing to stop in for a thought...to hear how it entered me before it was shared with you. In Chapter Two John takes a stroll through the busy streets of New York City. There was once a time when dodging the constantly busy minded inspired a reason to dance. The footsteps required to avoid. The swerving of his hips to get into then around. But this day. He bumps into a New Yorker on the phone.

    Peter Max once told me, "You have to release your art! It doesn't belong to you!" Julia Cameron elegantly preaches in The Artist Way the very lyrics of having no reason to be creatively selfish. With each passing day. I inch closer to the first year writing celebration of Scrambled Eggs. While attending the premiere of About Time last evening. The writer within kept smiling. The making of a book is a brilliant feeling. From single sentences to huge paragraphs. The art of studying the watchful eye of a modern reader to blending reasons of wanting to reinvent the wheel. But one thing is missing. You have no clue as to what I'm hearing in my head. Therefore. Like the writer I am. I shall take t...

    It's no longer something that "just happens" in other parts of the world. Your backyard could be tomorrows lead story on the 11 o'clock news. Pockets of people. A separated nation. Beliefs that no longer carry faith and trust. When the walls have fallen and the mountains are no longer purple majesty. The postcard at the counter seems more like Disney than the America we once lived. www.rickysrevolution.org https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rickys-Revolution-Non-Profit/330339326980569 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rickys-Revolution-Non-Profit/330339326980569

    I love meeting people whose passion reaches beyond their career. When it changes people's lives in a positive way. It's a Broadcaster loyalty to their community to share it.
