Michael talks with a few, or maybe one guest, about how we can all contribute to make Tucson a better place to live.  Also, there is a ton of news which we analyze right here tonight.  Michael introduces the suffix "-ghazi" to mean a fake, politically motivated scandal, to be the opposite of "-gate" or a real scandal.  Tweet your whatever-ghazi suggestions to @IKTVlive or via with the hashtag #ghazi or #IKTVghazi and we will read them on the air.  So far, we have (the original) #benghazi, plus #climateghazi, #samghazi, #bundyghazi, #bring-back-our-girls-ghazi, and #IRSghazi.

Tell The FCC That We Insist On Net Neutrality!!  Help Save The Internet!!  Please Sign These Petitions!!  We Have Until 10 September 2014!!
Net Neutrality is a principle that says that the people who use the internet, not large corporations, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), should be in control.  All of these petitions do the same thing: they order the FCC to reclassify broadband ISPs so as to re-regulate broadband Internet providers and force them to operate inside of the legal framework that has traditionally applied to companies that offer two-way communication services.  This ensures that ISPs can't speed up, slow down, or block web content based on its political affilitaion, content, source, ownership, destination, or any other number of factors.  If ISPs can slow down certain sections of the internet, then they can also charge YOU more if YOU want to have those services given to you at normal speeds.  It's like extortion for the internet without Net Neutrality.  Please sign the petitions below to prevent this corporate-controlled dystopia from becoming reality, before it's too late!

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me”
  -- Thomas Jefferson


“"And what does it amount to?" said Satan, with his evil chuckle.  "Nothing at all.  You gain nothing; you always come out where you went in.  For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously reperforming this dull nonsense--to what end?  No wisdom can guess!  Who gets a profit out of it?
"Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master to slave, and are answered in in the language of slave to master; who are worshiped by you with your mouth, while in your heart -- if you have one -- you despise yourselves for it.
"The first man was hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not yet failed in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.  Drink to their perpetuation!  Drink to their augmentation!  Drink to--" Then he saw by our faces how much we were hurt, and he cut his sentence short and stopped chuckling.”

  -- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, from "The Mysterious Stranger"


“I have lived perfectly well within this society; why cannot these oliogarchs and same misanthropes do as such then?  It is not because of any particular behavior for one sociological manner; rather it is solely caused by the lack of means and those resources to the great many which are foisted particularly by those which do not lack the same.  We have all faced the serpect sick and we know what it is, who it is and where it is, moreover, we all know what is better.  The question we need to ask these days is whether we are able to appreciate this and contribute.  Perhaps more pressing is that we must now, please keep track of each others' whereabouts: regardless of the presence of GITMO DELTA-4, we must assume that we all oblige to perform in our best.  While the shame of our collective nod to the perpetuation of subjugation and torture still happens, it needs to stop immediately, so this next becomes the most important.  The place in this world bears no more space for those ideologues of bigotry nor hatred.  The ancient thought that a betterment of one family or race or strain is somehow purity, that is now obviously not only quaint, but incorrect and patently obtuse and averse from reality.  The old lines are no longer to be sanely held.  We shall not now and ought not to ever more be alone.  I do not want to be this, only in, that only I am this; it is necessary this entire world needs to share that this immutable truth must be known, because, we all of everyone, we do collectively hold the highest and so care about our future, even when it is not our own.  If you will pick any one of the 3600 to stop, please pick ALL OF THEM and make EVERYONE THE CAUSE.”
