The Urging of Hatred Through Division

 August 19, 2017

PART I: "A SOCIETY IN THE WAKE OF OUR WISDOM"
America's societal culture is a mixture of ideologies that are based in tradition and those that are a new way of thinking.  One is trying to deny room to the other so that it can survive.  And one is trying to crowd out the other so that it can grow and take control. 
On one side there's a nation steeped in a history that brought this nation to greatness, in its thinking and its deeds.  Seeking to move forward with views, in large part, that are anything but complimentary to tradition, the other promotes a division in America, if not growing, that is certainly getting louder.
Today, we look at the WHO, WHY and HOW these differences have graduated from lively debates to hatred and even blood in our streets.  If we ignore both the powers behind this unrest and their motivation, and focus strictly on the minions that are persuaded to do the footwork, both our culture and safety will continue to be threatened. 
This program, Part I, gives the background for the differences and the anger.  Next week, Part II reveals the changes in our society (so far), based on the wisdom of this "new and more socialistic way of thinking.

August 12, 2017 (ENCORE)

We recommend the following program for this week
As we draw closer to the ending of our major involvement in the Middle East and as sabers are beginning to rattle in Asia; there's one war that rages and lingers on for our men and women, both active and veteran.  A war that is far too often overlooked.  It's personal and because it is, many Americans have a hard time relating; especially when it doesn't affect their family, directly.  This enemy is often cleverly camouflaged and can stay silently hidden for some time.  Eventually though; it picks off our military men and women----one at a time.
This program originally aired on November 22, 2014.  It was Part II of a two part series on PTSD.  The previous week (Nov. 15th) focused on our men, active and veteran.  To listen to the first part, please go to our Archives 2014 page and scroll down to this date.  Thank you for your concern and please support our men and women, active and veteran.   

A WORD OF CAUTION: Listener discretion is advised.  While this program is presented in our effort to Educate, Inform and give Reason for Hope, we realize some of the accounts related may be disturbing to some.  Don’t isolate yourself, reach out, call a friend or medical professional or dial 911.  Help is closer than you think and you have every reason to hope for a better tomorrow.

August 5, 2017 (ENCORE)

 We recommend the following program for this week
It seems that there are an abnormal amount of members in Congress that have one focus, to stop the current administration from keeping its promises made, to America, during the campaigns.  Most notably, we have seen Congress put a halt or see to the failure of President Trump's appointees and the fiasco that surrounded the attempt to repeal and replace the ACA. 
The president and his cabinet are working to eliminate fraud at the ballot box (now challenged), come up with major tax cuts (on hold), secure our borders (lagging support) and bring about other changes, such as trade agreements in favor of America and attempts to return manufacturing to American soil.  In other words, this Administration is trying to live up to its promise of "putting America first".  That was the underlying theme to the president's campaign of "Make America Great Again".
Five years ago (August 25, 2012), Main Street Out Loud aired a Five Part Series on what we, as a nation, how we needed to change our thinking and put "America First"Now you can replay the first of  that Five Part Series, and hear what we presented then, in order to establish a mindset of "Americans making America First".

 July 29, 2017 (ENCORE)

We recommend the following program for this week
This past week we saw certain members of the Senate turn inward once again, and decide to do what they felt was best for their re-election efforts, instead of what would be best for Americans.  It is a known fact that the ACA is nothing that was promised and it will collapse on itself in due order.  But, there has been extreme efforts to scare Americans and those efforts mean votes.  And nothing means more, to most career politicians, other than staying in office. Their greed to gain wealth and power are the driving forces. 
It is due to this betrayal and other on goings this past week, in DC, that we recommend a program that we aired in February of this year.
There is more than a difference of opinions going on and America's future hangs in the balance.  There seems to be a desperation, a move for revenge and possibly even a hatred among those that were elected to tend to the business of government.  While our history is replete of differing opinions, methods and leadership, the arguments, most of the time, led to what's best for America and her citizens.  Today, America seems to have been replaced, and parties are the favored focus.

 July 22, 2017 (ENCORE)

We recommend the following program for this week
After another failure in DC, of Congress being able to work together for the good of the country, we think you might want to take some time to remember when....  When Americans thought things out, when they not only insisted on the truth, but they got it.  When Congress, for the majority of the time, actually leveled with the people and, hard as it is to believe, when some of them actually lived up to their promises. It seems that we're spending all our time on discussing gossip instead of the business at hand---America.  Instead of depending on our representatives in DC, maybe we need to reassess and look inward---to a time when we thought for ourselves.

July 15, 2017 (ENCORE)

We recommend the following program for this week.
Due to the ongoing efforts in DC, in regards to the vote on the bill they refer to as "Health Care", we thought you might want to refresh your memory how Congress should approach it.  This entire argument, disagreement and dog-and-pony show isn't about your medical care---not one bit.  If you haven't heard this one, now's the time.  You have time enough to listen and possibly let your representatives know that what they have in mind is wrong for you, your family and for America.

DRs KNOW WHAT IT TAKES, THEY CARE ABOUT YOU...
webassets/BComfortableOurGiftToUcompressed.jpg
Our Guest is a DR, not a politician. He knows healthcare and public policy. (click to enlarge pix)

 JULY 8, 2017

OUR GIFT TO YOU:  MOST INFORMATIVE PROGRAM ON "HEALTHCARE"
Chances are that if you're talking, arguing or listening to others, about the current situation with the "healthcare" bills currently being argued in DC; chances are that you don't know what you're talking about, nor do those you're listening to.  Sorry, to be so blunt, but after you hear this program, you'll understand why we can say that without reservation.
Our Guest: Jeffrey Singer (MD), gives the most knowledgeable, thorough and easy-to-understand interview you may ever hear on this subject.  His extremely impressive credentials, all earned,  speak to his grasp of all sides connected to medical care. 
We discuss the condition of medicine before the ACA, after and the on going arguments concerning repeal/replace.  Taxes, subsidies, mandates, death spirals, coverage menus, HIPPA (what no one mentions), Medicare, Medicaid, State Expansions. 
Dr. Singer explains why (contrary to most fields), as technology advances, instead of decreasing costs, health associated costs go up.  We hear the truth about how extreme costs are the results of third party providers and the dangers a single payer system would mean to patients.
Simply put:  Dr. Singer spoke to the areas that everyone of us should understand.  When it comes to your health and that of your family, shouldn't you have enough information to make the right choices?  Listen to this program----you'll be a whole lot smarter.
Personal note from Rudi K:  Dr. Singer gave a clear picture of the conditions before and after the Affordable Care Act (ACA or also known as "Obamacare"). His examples of how these wrongs could be righted were thorough and presented in an easy-to-understand manner. His answer to my direct question, on the future of the Senate and House versions, was the conclusion to the best interview I have ever heard on the so-called "health care" mess.
And that's not because of me, it is because of Dr. Jeffrey A. Singer's remarkable knowledge of actual health care and the policies associated with it.
I recommend (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) this program to anyone that really wants to understand the truth behind the real attempts in DC that affect each of us. And it's not about medical care. Surprise!
It's clear why government has no business debating, writing bills and passing legislation on, what they perceive to be and call "health care".
I listened to the replay of this program as soon as it was available.  I can't say enough about Dr. Singer or the information presented in this program. 
Thanks to Dr. Jeffrey Singer.  He helped to start my 5 week hiatus off on a very good note---We gave our listeners a truly great gift---knowledge.
 
Instead of lawyers on Capitol Hill, we, at Main Street Out Loud, feel medical doctors should be giving their input.  We realize there are other areas, such as finance, insurance, pharmaceuticals, etc.  But, it all starts with the patient seeing a doctor. 
BOTTOM LINE:   Most Americans don't want government dictating who, what, where, when or how they will be treated.  Government has no business in the room with you and your doctor.  Period

 JULY 1, 2017

PART II: "THE THREATENING ATMOSPHERE; HOW WE GOT HERE"
We won and we're airing the program they didn't want you to hear. 
We face reality as to how we got to "here and now". 
We went from "near picture perfect" down a path we created, to "near ruin". 
Were there any major turning points, what could we have done differently?  We deal with the hard truth of our own progression from "One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all" to our current condition in the darkness of a threatening atmosphere of doom and gloom. 
This is an extremely candid look at the path we took to become a society that needs some serious intervention.  And, in plain English, we present the views of Main Street Americans as to who or what it will take to turn us around. 
We know we're going to touch nerves today, but it's time to put up or shut up.
In Part I (June 17)  we looked at where we are today.  We cleared up the misinformation being sold to us today.  We presented the thought patterns of Congress and, while they sound nice, we pointed out why they WON'T WORK. 
And that brought us to today's program: How we got here and how get back to "near picture perfect".

THE FOUR STEPS NEEDED TO TAKE TO A....
Political-Issues-People/HealthCareMagnifyingGlass.jpg
WORKABLE, GOOD, FINANCIALLY SOUND AND EQUITABLE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM FOR ALL AMERICANS

June 24, 2017

"FOUR STEPS REQUIRED FOR WORKABLE HEALTHCARE"
In our commitment to be about the people and businesses on the Main Streets of America, we had to delay our planned broadcast and give way to today's issue that has Americans confused, upset, angry and even, by design, hopelessly misinformed.
We started, to put it bluntly, with the continuing plans by Democrats to organize resistance and derail any efforts by anyone to "mess with" Obamacare. 
We then took a candid look at the decades of the same promises made during every campaign season and the votes they brought in---only for those elected to ignore those promises.  And---to keep the same scenario revolving time after time after time.  America deserves more and we owe it to our country to end the two parties that have, election after election, gained total control of Congress, leaving the voters left with the crumbs thrown them on election day.  The people must take back the power that is, under the rule of law, theirs.
Then, we made our case for the four steps necessary to design and implement a working, good, financially sound, equal health care system for all Americans.

THERE'S MORE DARKNESS THAN WE'RE WILLING TO ACCEPT
webassets/DarknessInAmericaSmallerCompressed.jpg
AND IT'S THREATENING MORE THAN JUST "THEM" (click on pix to enlargen)

JUNE 17, 2017

PART I: "THE THREATENING ATMOSPHERE; OUR CONDITION TODAY"
In the first of a two part series, we look at the trend and true condition of America today; today, right now. 
We start the program by looking at the real James Hodgkinson, not what the liberal media is now saying about him.  He wasn't some quiet, secluded, lonely being.  He was anything but.
We presented the thought patterns of Congress, as to how to remove the uncivil attitude in this nation. Their ideas of "toning down the rhetoric, coming together and professing to play on the same team", while they sound nice---WON'T WORK.
We addressed the 'Next Day', when reality set in; how quickly many Americans (with partisan leanings to both parties) followed the examples (misleading and cruel) of far too many political figures. 
And when tragedy strikes, we can't leave out those major media networks that spin, hype and mislead the public, based on their biased reporting on air and in print. We addressed the despicable efforts, by some, to justify this vile act of evil. 
Before we went off the air, we spoke of how things on Capitol Hill would get back to "normal" and what "normal" meant for you and me.
To make the drastic changes we need to get out from under this threatening atmosphere, we need to know how we got here.  In Part II, (June 24) we air what most would rather not have to hear: Our progression from "One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all" to our current condition in the darkness of a threatening atmosphere of doom and gloom.

TO BUY INTO THEIR SPIN. BY BEING MISINFORMED THEY CAN PUSH THEIR AGENDAS (WITH YOUR HELP).

June 10, 2017

"EENIE, MEENIE, MINEY, MO--We can't let this go"
There's a continuing concerted effort to bring down this administration, as well as circumventing some basics to the foundation of our constitutional freedoms.
We bring out the disease of collusion spreading in our universities.  We address the shameful efforts on behalf of national media sources and their employees.  And we will give you the logical view missing in the recent Senate hearing, regarding the testimony of former FBI director James Comey. 
Main Street Out Loud believes that truth and logic go hand in hand.
We believe that if you are going to make an effort to be informed, then you should be able to hear, see, read or otherwise research the truth, without having to wade through the hype and assumption of those in politics and the medial.  And when we say the truth, we mean the whole truth and nothing but the truth. 
We believe it is the responsibility of all media involved in the delivery of "news and information", to remain unbiased, open and thorough in their presentations to the public, at all times.
But, more and more, we know that, even the most traditional news outlets have thrown out the truth, in
favor of feeding their agenda, spinning the news the way they feel like reporting it.
There's nothing more eye opening then hearing the lies come from their own lips. 
We have the audio  and will play it.

THE PULSE OF THIS NATION IS ITS PEOPLE
webassets/Americans.jpg
AND THE PEOPLE, TO SURVIVE, NEED THE TRUTH

JUNE 3, 2017

"YOU CAN RUN A GAME ON THEM, ONLY FOR SO LONG"
And then (hopefully) Americans wake up. And when they wake up, they call your number, they punch your ticket and tell you it's time you move on.  
So, before anyone thinks Main Street can be scammed, here's a few things we think you should know about us.  To start, we've been awake for a very long time. 
We start this program with the topic that captured the attention of the entire world (yes, the entire world).  The decision of President Trump to withdraw the United States of America from the Paris Climate Accord has had plenty of people making all sorts of accusations, some true, many false and some outright lies, as to what this UNFCCCC agreement is about. 
We will clear the air---the facts, without bias and in complete truth, delivered in plain English.
 
And we will give our perspective on the efforts by some to draw further attention by their statements and actions.  Here's a hint:  Keep in mind that only three days before the President announced his decision, with solemn respect, we paid honor, as we remembered our military men and women, who served this nation and have passed on. 
Main Street Out Loud, once again, presents information that commentators and spokespersons in both parties, conservatives, liberals and those with "a dog in the race"  prefer to skip over---keeping the general public "in the dark".

TO REMEMBER AND HONOR THE FALLEN
Military-Patriotic/MainStreetPaysRespect.jpg

MAY 27, 2017

MEMORIAL DAY SPECIAL

We will begin with one of the nation's most popular figures on this Memorial Day Weekend.  He, for the last 15 years has stood at attention to salute the hundreds of thousands of men and women who participate in "Rolling Thunder".  As a returning guest, we will speak with USMC SSgt. Tim Chambers ---
"The Saluting Marine".
Our second guest after his USMC service (including deployment to Korea 1954-1955)), he went on to have a successful business and personal life.  Upon retiring, he elected to "pay it forward" and today, Russell Mascari is the PR and IO for Marine Corps League #757, Lake Havasu City, AZ.
And we will hear from a woman (RN), whose life of patriotic endeavors has been of benefit to untold numbers.   Along with her nursing duties, she helped organize and head up her state chapter of the national group that escorts and stands to insure uninterrupted rites of service members being laid to rest.  Today, Louann Thomas,  former Arizona State Captain Patriot Guard Riders continues to educate and support service personnel and their families

Another one of our guests, a USAF veteran stands ever ready to bring awareness and honor, as his organization recognizes our POW/MIA/KIA military men and women.  As the founder and current Commander of POW/MIA/KIA Honor Guard, we are pleased to have USAF TSgt.(ret.) David Carrasco make his radio debut on Main Street Out Loud.
IT'S YOUR CHOICE: You can listen to some politicians and celebrities (who have never served) talk about Memorial Day OR you can listen to the men and women who SERVED and are active in remembering and honoring others--not one day a year--but 365 days a year.

WE UNDERSTAND THE FOUR ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS REQUIRED AND WE REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE....

MAY 20, 2017

"THE FINESSE OF MAKING RUMORS WORK"
The pictures in our weekly update told part of the story when it comes to rumors, especially those flying around the country right now.  While the rumors are monopolizing most of the focus and conversations, they are the results of deliberate manipulation with the help of the four essential ingredients necessary to make rumors take on a life of their own and fly.
We aren't wasting our time (or yours) repeating rumors--most rumors are spread with the intent to embarrass, discredit or destroy, they aren't facts, in fact most rumors are lies. 
Imagine if we could eliminate rumors, what a better world it would be.  By understanding what makes rumors work, we can actually eliminate them.  But, we can't stop them without your help. 
This program identifies and describes the FOUR ESSENTIALS--the necessary ingredients required to make rumors a success.  "The Finesse of Making Rumors Work" -- Candid and in plain English.  Unlike anything you've heard anywhere , regarding this vindictive, malicious and bitter topic.

WE'RE HEADING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
webassets/SpecialReport-UglyAmerican.jpg

MAY 13, 2017

SPECIAL REPORT: "UGLY AMERICANS GETTING UGLIER"
When the book "The Ugly American" came out in 1958, it created a national eye-opening and soared to the best seller list.  It was a fictional account, based on true events in regards to many government procedures that were used then and are still alive and thriving in the halls of Congress and within our diplomatic agencies, today.
While the book dealt with America's failing attempts at fighting Communism in Asia, today's program brings it closer to home.  We believe in cleaning up our own side of the street, first.  And with that, we look at the ugliness Americans exhibit on our own soil.  And as we looked at us, we found we're getting uglier and uglier.  
Each of us are a reflection as to the parenting, or lack of it, we received in our early years that contributed to the type of person we are today.  Parenting or the lack of it, contributed to our sense of right and wrong, our values, moral code, principles, ethics and our integrity. 
Add to that the fact that it's Mother's Day weekend and we're wondering if people really stop to consider the kind of reflection each of us cast on our family name. 
Does anyone care?  Has all decency and respect been replaced with ugliness? 
We bring a perspective that, hopefully, will make you think twice before you become another "Uglier American".

MAY 6, 2017

YOU TELL ME THIS, BUT THEN YOU.....
Wouldn't it be nice if people actually said what they meant, they believed and then stuck to it?  Wouldn't it be great to have some peace and quiet instead of someone constantly stirring the pot?  Wouldn't it be great if what people said was the truth instead of making up some story to cover up something or rile up someone?
Many say one thing, beating the drum to ad nauseam and then---say just the opposite.  Let's face it, it's confusing and confusion causes people to chase their own tails or, in this case, the "tales" of others.  Main Street Americans want the truth and they want to act on the truth.  So, in this age of dichotomous government, dichotomous social behavior and dichotomous wishing, which is the truth.....is there a clear truth?  And is there a position you would stand for, and defend, physically, if necessary?  Or is it just all talk?

'LET'S TALK ABOUT LIVING..."
Let's talk about Life.  Many of us do a lot of thinking, and many more do a lot of talking, but too few take the step to seal the deal.  We want to change that.  When a loved one passes away, the heart grieves and the mind reflects. Unfortunately, too many reflections involve serious regrets that will last a lifetime.  They weren't cleared up during the living years.
Rudi shares his relationship with and the loss of both his mother (this month) and father (in 1993) as an aid (for listeners) to heal family relationships while they can be.
We want to make you aware of the "doing" part.  Join us for an hour of heart felt reflections, sincere observations and uplifting solutions.  Life is about much more than many of us realize.  Appreciate it, respect it, treasure it.......

 April 22, 2017

SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO HEAR FROM SPECIAL PEOPLE
I (Rudi K) have always said that Main Street Out Loud is not about the host, it's about the people and businesses all across America. 

As I thought about this week’s program, (while coping with the very recent passing of my mother) I knew that whatever I did, it had to be a special program, one that was uplifting.  So, I looked through our archives, for a program that fit the bill.  And I thought of a program that aired last year, featuring five selfless and caring people.  And the more I thought about that particular program, the more I knew this was just that---a special program with five very special people.

This one is good for your heart and your mind.  I need this and I hope it is of benefit to you, today, tomorrow and even the rest of your life.

Due to the passing of Rudi K's mother this past week and services held on Good Friday, this week's broadcast (with some updates and program changes) is a repeat of last week's program.  We thank you for your understanding, your support and your patience.   The title and theme throughout the program seems fitting..... "a time when we stopped to think"

AN ENCORE PRESENTATION:  "....WHEN WE STOPPED TO THINK"
The pace is a quick one and there are a lot of moving parts.  But, are we getting anywhere?  There was a time when technology wasn't running at mind boggling speed and there weren't as many moving parts.  But it seems as though, thinking back, we knew a lot then.  We knew a lot, but was it any more the truth than what we know today?
In this program, with our guest Lynn Vogel, we'll look at what we did then, where we're going today and we'll name specific issues in the past couple of weeks and bring you the truth on them (Possibly far different than what you've been told).

THERE WAS A TIME WE STOPPED TO ASK...

WHERE ARE WE GOING AND HOW DO WE GET THERE?

April 8, 2017

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE STOPPED TO THINK...

The pace is a quick one and there are a lot of moving parts.  But, are we getting anywhere?  There was a time when technology wasn't running at mind boggling speed and there weren't as many moving parts.  But it seems as though, thinking back, we knew a lot then.  We knew a lot, but was it any more the truth than what we know today?
Today, we're able to get information from around the world in real time and it comes to us from an endless list of sources.  But, the more info we get, the faster we get it, it is ever increasingly false.  Between bias reporting and "wannabes" that continually relay what they've heard or read (but with their own spin) and outright lies, we have ever increasing propaganda machines that leave more and more misinformed on very serious matters.
In this program, with our guest Lynn Vogel, we'll look at what we did then, where we're going today and we'll name specific issues in the past couple of weeks and bring you the truth on them (Possibly far different than what you've been told).
We'll wade through the hype and bring you the facts.  We'll decipher any misleading and/or deceptive attempts and bring you the truth.  AND--Instead of those recorded, stale and over-used media sound bites, we'll bring you live, unique, in-depth reports and perspectives.

TOO OFTEN, TOO SOON, TOO MANY, TOO BIASED....
Political-Issues-People/TrumpSpeaksPoints.jpg
THE DISTRACTIONS HAVE BURIED THE TRUTH AND CANDOR OF HIS WORDS

April 1, 2017

ENCORE PRESENTATION: 'HOW FAR FROM GREATNESS'
On February 28, the President of the United States of America spoke to the nation with the joint members of congress present, as well as invited guests. His message was clear; his goal was to "Make America Great Again".  And he would lead the way by trying to unite the people, to put "America First".  While he received tremendous amounts of ovations, he also was the recipient of snobbery, disdain, being ignored, mocked and ridiculed.  Some of our elected officials actually attended to disrupt his speech, to be the "headliner", to "be noticed" and to refute, by their silence and dissident nature, every attempt the President made to move forward, a nation that once was great.
The naysayers, the trouble makers, the opposition, the influential and the un-American have done much to keep this administration from fulfilling its duties, to the nation, to its citizens.  The headlines are negative, the main stream media, seemingly, never missing an opportunity to smear, raise doubt, suspicion, initiate scandal and otherwise interrupt the essence of government, within the Trump administration.  Add to this the forces behind the Democrat Party, to block nominations, to strike down bills in the House and Senate, to promote unrest at every turn and you have the makings of a rumble---a rumble for more than talk. 
It is with this in mind, that we have chosen to bring you the program that we aired after President Trump's speech, in which he outlined his view of America and its return to greatness.  Many, due to the distractions and deliberate acts to sabotage this administration, have already forgotten his words.  It's time we focus on the positive of his message and recall his words.
Throughout the past few weeks, you have heard half truths, many lies and you’ve been inundated with distractions.  Now we’ll give you the side that becomes rarer and rarer in politics today---We present the unbiased TRUTH.

HOW OFTEN DO WE NEED TO HEAR THE TRUTH...

BEFORE WE GET THE MESSAGE? (Click on photo for a larger copy)

March 25, 2017
 

TOO, TOO MUCH FOR WAY TOO LITTLE
Join us as we delve deeper (we aired some of our findings on March 11th) into the reality of a pampered group of individuals that supposedly "SERVE" you and me.  Based on our findings, "SERVICE" is the farthest thing from their minds--Friday's "NO VOTE"on the ACA and a history of stagnation and emptiness, confirms that.   Add their paychecks, pampering, positioning, power and promoting and the proof is in the pudding.
 These so called 'representatives' are more correctly recognized (by us) as being the heads of their very own businesses. Some of what we will disclose will make you see red, some of what we disclose will make you steam and some of what we disclose should make you scream--at them.

If the members of Congress stuck to the truth and worked on the real issues that concern the people and businesses on the Main Streets all across America, they'd actually get something done---other than pointing fingers and creating deadlocks in government. 
There's a lot to absorb here and we present it in plain English.

NEAR NAKED, SUGGESTIVE, VULGAR AND VIOLENT

"WOMEN: MIXED MESSAGES AND THEIR CONSEQUENCES" 
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM: This program deals with the consequences of the mixed messages being sent by today's 21st Century woman.  We don't hold back and we warn you, that some of the subject matters (or descriptions) may not be suitable for all ages.  
Whether you applaud Rudi's stand on this one or are so angered you could throw rocks at him, one thing is for certain; his candor and commitment to truth can't be denied.
 
Since the beginning of the year (actually since the election of President Trump) there have been factions trying to do whatever they can to discredit, create fear, instill anger, promote hatred, call for impeachment, use stall tactics (and the list goes on) all to destroy the efforts of the Trump Administration and its agenda.  Possibly, no other groups have been more vocal or physically visible than the female participants, drawn in and organized through the leadership of "The Action Network" and "Organizing For Action". (We gave some details about OFA on Feb. 18).  
When the distraction of partially clothed (sometimes nude) women is ignored, when the smoke clears that conceals the people that head up these organizations, we're able to see things for what they are.  A group of men at the top and plenty of foul mouthed, vulgar depicting, sexually promiscuous and violence prone women willing to act out their agendas.  Agendas that are disguised under the cover of gender equality, equal rights and fueled by hatred, fear and anger.
And then we address a topic that isn't new, it isn't exclusive to our armed services and it isn't going away.  It's about sexually suggestive, nude photos--between consenting adults, posed for and pornographic.  As well as those photos that are taken without consent, secretively and definitely embarrassing. 
There is no "mixed message" in Rudi K's commentary:  What are you teaching the children that are watching you?

CONGRESS HAS PRETTY MUCH INSURED THEIR WELLNESS..
Political-Issues-People/HealthCareMagnifyingGlass.jpg
AS FOR "WE THE PEOPLE", WELL, WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR THE PROMISES MADE TO US

MARCH 11, 2017 

 

"WELLNESS - WOMEN - WIRE TAPS"

These are three issues that have been dominating the headlines for a very long time.  And yet, while there's a lot of talk, there's very little action.  As with most things in DC, there's plenty of finger pointing and lots of ducking and making excuses.  When it comes to the issues of this land, Main Street Americans are fed up with all talk and no action. We have some positive suggestions to getting things done.  
Main Street Out Loud believes that if the government insists on trying to resolve the healthcare issue (not just repealing the Affordable Care Act), then we think we can lay out the road map for them to follow and come up with an exceptional resolution.  We'll explain it.
As for the other issues; wire tapping has certainly taken on a life of its own and we wonder why a certain European leader isn't being questioned as to her knowledge.  Why is the Main Stream Media so hush-hush over her?  We'll fill you in.  You need to know. 
And then, there's the issue of women and their movements---who are they and what do they really want.  Well, maybe we can't resolve all the issues, but we can sure shed some light on one of them---and we'll point out the dichotomy.  Mixed messages aren't just confusing, they cause more problems.

PRESIDENT REPEATS AGENDA: MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

HE OUTLINES THE PARTS THAT MUST BE INCLUDED TO REALIZE HIS GOAL. WHAT ARE THEY? WHO'S ON BOARD?

"AMERICA: HOW FAR FROM GREATNESS"

This past Tuesday, the President of the United States of America spoke to the nation with the joint members of congress present, as well as invited guests.  Some came to hear, some came to honor others.  Some attended, still healing, hurting and they cried.  Others came to disrupt, be obnoxious, rude and were pre occupied.
The President spoke, his message was clear:  A united people with a common theme: America First.
This is our topic today: A honest look at the messenger, the message and the recipients in attendance.
Throughout the week, you have heard half truths, many lies and you’ve been inundated with distractions.  Now we’ll give you the side that becomes rarer and rarer in politics today---We present the unbiased TRUTH.
I hand it to those outside of the current administration and those who continue to have an axe to grind because of their bitterness over the loss of the election.  They are very good at throwing up road blocks, diversions and completely unfounded distractions
I distractions that their fans eagerly swallow---- hook, line and sinker.
Are we so blind, we cannot see:  
America: How Far From Greatness Are We?

THIS ISN'T SOME REMOTE CONCERN OF "THEM & US"...
webassets/IllegalsHereToWorkWhatHarm.jpg
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION NEEDS TO BE PERSONAL...TOO MANY HAVE FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY

 February 25, 2017
 

"ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION : REALITY OF LIFE"
The enforcement of current laws on the position of illegal immigrants has been a can kicked down the road for decades.  Today, there's a new administration in DC and, right on cue, illegal immigration, border security and the subject of deportation is front and center.
We (at MSOL) believe we must make the issue of illegal immigration personal.  To keep it remote, by using terms as "They, Them or Those" and "Us, We or Our"  keeps us removed and remote from the reality of the problem. 
Our guest today gives us an update to an interview we did nearly four years ago. The Greenhill family's experiences had been brought to the attention of the nation.  Tamara Greenhill  gave us an exclusive, first interview regarding the utter devastation an illegal immigrant caused her and her family.  A respectable family, law abiding, tax paying, moral and principled couple who loved and cared for their three children. 
Today, the family continues to live in the nightmare that has, to date cost them more than $500,000.00, decimated their credit, left them homeless, without insurance, without personal transportation, heavily audited by the IRS, jobless and with a never ending claims against them.  If this were you---what would your position be on the issue of illegal immigration? 
Here are some misconceptions we clear up and some facts we present in truth and utter candor:  What happened to the Greenhill family may be happening to you today, you just don't know it yet.  It may be happening to your small child or even your unborn baby.  Again, you just don't know it yet.  And when you are finally aware of it---you'll already be living your nightmare.

We also address other misconceptions.  For example: #1. "Undocumented Immigrants" ( a near impossibility) and #2."Law Abiding Illegal Immigrant" (It goes far beyond being here illegally).
We escape the issue of enforcing our laws, by taking the easy way out.  We feign compassion as our excuse to not carry out the consequences to the violation of our immigration laws by believing a common lie: "They came here for work, to earn a decent living so they could provide for their family--they aren't hurting anyone".  Not only is that thought process self-deceiving--it's a LIE. 
This isn't hearsay, this isn't a spin to make things sound effective for one side or another.  This is just LIFE'S REALITY
Set aside your preconceived notions and hear the truth.  After you've heard this program, let us know what you're thinking now.

WHEN IT'S TOP SECRET, CONFIDENTIAL, CLASSIFIED
Political-Issues-People/IntelToTattletaleSmall.jpg
WHAT PART CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND? WHY IS THE PUBLIC SO HAPPY TO KNOW THERE ARE LEAKS?

 February 18, 2017
 

FROM INTEL TO TATTLETALE
When it's about national security, when it's about Presidential Privilege, when it's marked Top Secret, Confidential, Classified or Do Not Disclose and then that information is leaked through various channels, including the main stream media--- has someone committed a crime?
We identify one major organization, with the help of one major political figure (GUESS WHO) that is waging an all out attack on one target: The Presidency of Donald Trump. 
And we clear the air of misconception, misinformation and tons of rumors regarding former National Security Advisor, General (Ret) Michael Flynn.  Yes, we bring you the rest of the story---the parts that the main stream media and so called "news" programs continually and conveniently leave out.
We realize that most politicians prefer to work in the dark, making their deals in back rooms away from the light.  In the light of day, carefully crafted secrets might be exposed and all those personal agendas would surely fail in a transparent setting. Considering you have a right to know the truth about YOUR government and those that took the reins from you, we turn the light on, on Washington, DC.

OUR GUEST: AUTHOR AND AZ SUPREME COURT JUSTICE
Political-Issues-People/MSOLPresentsSCOTUS.jpg
THE HONORABLE CLINT BOLICK (click on picture to enlargen)

February 11, 2017

 
"THE SUPREME COURT: FROM THE INSIDE" 

An Exclusive and Insightful Interview, regarding the mystique and unknown process of the Supreme Court.  Our guest:  Arizona Supreme Court Justice, The Honorable Clint Bolick, is recognized as one of the nation's most  renowned constitutional scholars.  Justice Bolick, as a distinguished attorney, has argued before the SCOTUS (and won) numerous times.  He has been instrumental in defining State and Federal laws. 
During the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, then attorney Bolick, was instrumental and intricately involved in the process that eventually led to Justice Thomas being seated on the bench of the High Court. 
Justice Bolick as also a prolific author, with numerous books.  In 2012 his highly acclaimed book "Two-Fer: Electing a President and a Supreme Court" was released.  Today, his position on the Supreme Court of Arizona, makes Justice Bolick exceptionally qualified and the ideal guest for this upcoming program.  His guest appearances on Main Street Out Loud, over the last 8 years,  have been a top pick of our listeners.
This may be the best interview, regarding the Supreme Court, you've ever heard.  Why?  Because we're asking the questions you would ask, not the questions the main stream media asks the pundits that are on the so called "news shows" circuit.
As always, Main street Out Loud presents the truth---the truth you need never doubt.

FOCUSING ON ADVANCEMENT vs ANTAGONISM

WHAT'S REAL---WHAT'S RHETORIC (Click on photo to enlarge)

 February 4, 2017 

"EVOLVING PRESIDENCY-----REVOLVING CONGRESS"

When we turn on the light, the truth becomes quite apparent.  And we see that the stakes are high.  America's future is at stake.  There is more than a difference of opinions going on.  There seems to be a desperation, a move for revenge and possibly even a hatred among those that were elected to tend to the business of government.  While our history is replete of differing opinions, methods and leadership, the arguments, most of the time, led to what's best for America and her citizens.  Today, America seems to have been replaced, and parties are the favored focus.  Washington warned of this, Adams, Jefferson and Lincoln also expressed their unfavorable views of the politics concerning powerful parties. 
We take a day by day look at the major points of today's presidency.  Want the truth?   We've got it.

WOMENS' RIGHTS, SLIGHTS AND SOME DISGUSTING SIGHT?
Political-Issues-People/WomensRightsMarch1-21-17.jpg

January 28, 2017 

"RIGHTS, MARCH & FIRST WEEK: WHAT AMERICAN WOMEN SAY"

A panel comprised of FIVE WOMEN from various parts of America speak out on women's rights, the WRM and the end results. The credentials and accomplishments of these women, attest to their RIGHT to speak out on this subject. 
When an American woman has issues and/or seeks advice on life, she doesn't contact a wealthy celebrity, she doesn't call some isolated, aloof political figure and she definitely doesn't take advice from a crude, rude and "nasty woman".  And for this program, to hear the truth, Main Street Out Loud asked women that live and work on the Main Streets across America.
We'll start the hour, by giving some background as to the organizers, supporters and motives behind the march.  And we'll hear if the reasoning these women used, whether the joined in or not.. Main Street Americans that didn't join in, thought of it. 
Plus, these FIVE LADIES will give their assessment of President Trump's first week in office.
You'll find these ladies to be candid, honest and without bias.  Nothing like the truth---whether you can "handle it" or not.

"THE INAUGURATION OF A NEW PRESIDENT"
President Donald John Trump, 45th President of the United States of America, didn't give a speech at his inauguration; he spoke to the nation. And his message was clear, concise and it was the right message for our time. 
In this hour we hear the entire address (uninterrupted) and then we comment on parts of his message that resonated the highest, based on our poll of Main Street Americans.  And we'll hear from listeners. 
Bottom line on the address by President Trump:  If you didn't agree, if you found fault in what he had to say, if you feel threatened by his words, then we mince no words in stating the three reasons you might feel the way you do.  And quite frankly, it's no feather in your cap.
But first, we start the hour off by giving a perspective on the "Womens' Rights" march of the day.  Who's behind it and who's the filthy mouthed celebrity that is casting a disgraceful shadow on womanhood?  Plus:  Did she just threaten to blow up the White House?

"THERE'S MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE"

We bring you a blistering look into our own houses.  It is extremely clear that this administration, the main stream media and people "behind the power", have made it a point to strategically create and place distractions to keep Americans from focusing on the real state of major concerns.   Manipulation and distraction are successful as deceptive practices when people rely on others for information and assurance, instead of their own research to learn the truth. The result is that focus on truth, as evident as it may be, gives way to the false narrative of the distraction.  And the consequences we live with, by failing to focus on  what was missing, is the wanting of our reality.  We remove the veil over our eyes, look beyond the distractions and focus on our own houses.  You can bet this one leaves a lot of egos exposed and stinging.
