America - The Land Of The Screwed?

Dr. Brewer is joined by Bruce Jacobs, (author of two books on race relations), for a look at the other side of the most recent election, the country's approach to Ebola, ISIS, etc.

Mr. Jacobs says, "Democrats such as the defeated Anthony Brown (Democratic Candidate for Governor of Maryland)— who strolled around Maryland making vague but pretty declarations about everyone’s right to health care and good schools — fall directly into the clutches of Republican fake populists. Such faint-hearted Democrats personify the accusation that government cannot be trusted. And by zipping their mouths shut on the vital question of who in fact is screwing most Americans, Dems squander their trump card in a nation where any given citizen will tell you bluntly that the rich are the boss.”

MyNDTALK - Back From The Brink

Thursday, October 23, 2014

On July 24th, 2004, author Graeme Cowan took pen to paper and said goodbye to his family. “I just can’t be a burden any longer,” he wrote. After four failed suicide attempts, and a five-year episode of depression that his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated, Cowan set out on a difficult journey back from the brink. Since then, he has dedicated his life to helping others struggling with depression and bipolar disorder—and that is how this book came to be. If you have severe depression or bipolar disorder, it is important to remember that you are not alone. Featuring interviews with people from of all walks of life, Back from the Brink is filled with real stories of hope and healing, information about treatment options and medication, and tools for putting what you've learned into practice."  TALK TO ME FRIDAYS ON (WPFW 89.3 FM/www.WPFWFM.ORG - ONLY) Live Q/A with Dr. Pamela Brewer
