2  Online Radio / Red, Right, and Blue / About Rick Bulow on: January 01, 2013, 11:47:33 am

Rick Bulow is the host of "Red, Right, and Blue" and working on starting a page called "Rick Bulow, New Media" as a way of bringing all three of his politically minded blogs under one banner. Labeling himself as a "New School journalist with an Old School attitude," he is passionate about what he does and has fun doing it.

Rick's first brush with radio came in the early 1990's with a short appearance on occasion on WAYJ-FM out of Fort Myers, Florida, when he was in the volunteer center and (memorably) in the studio for a segment at a Share-a-thon, the station's form of a telethon to raise money in the spring and fall, over the span of 4 - 6 years. He was mostly in the volunteer center but made his way into the studio with the Founder of WAY-FM for one segment. Then in the late 1990's he was a memorable caller and part of a show at AM 770 (WWCN which at the time mostly simulcast the shows on WQAM 560 out of Miami) with "The Joe Show with Joe Scott." Rick was known as "Lazy-Eye Larry" and had a few memorable calls and was even in the studio with Joe and his co-host Ryan. When WWCN decided to go all sports and eventually phase out Joe Scott's show, Rick transitioned over to "The Dawg House with Thom Abraham" and was a part of The Dawg House. He even was at the Tuesdays at McDonald's promotions with Thom, who was also known as "The Big Dawg", on occasion. One memorable moment of the Tuesdays at McDonald's happened to be the second installment, which took place on September 11, 2001.1 The $.77 muffin of the day was the Sausage McMuffin, and Rick was about to approach Thom at 8:46 AM Eastern to speak about Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan coming out of retirement to play for the Washington Wizards when he looked at the shock on Thom's face upon hearing of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center. At first both Rick and Thom thought nothing of it until the second plane struck at 9:03 AM Eastern. Then Rick knew that America was under attack.

Rick stuck around the Dawg House until 2004 when Thom decided to leave Ft. Myers for Huntsville, Alabama. When Thom left a couple of other Dawg House members (Gene "Da Master" Esposito and "Just" Don Lee) decided to do a show together, building on the success of The Dawg House. So they formed a weekly show on Sundays called "The Chat Room" as a replacement. Rick was a regular caller to the show and on December 19 was a guest in the studio for the entire 2 hour show.

In 2005 Rick started blogging, and from the one blog (Rick's Rants) is now the writer of six blogs, three of which have a political slant and one of them the Red, Right, and Blue show blog where he posts a couple of his rants or entries from his Conservative Blog as show editorials. He would only blog occasionally until 2011 when he had heard Herman Cain was contemplating a run for the Presidency in 2012. As such, he had started a second blog (now called Rick's Conservative Blog) which at first was dedicated to all things Herman Cain until Cain dropped out of the race December 3, 2011.

In 2010, Rick had become a DJ for DreamScape Radio, an online station which is a subsidiary of a chat and role play site called Portal of Dreams and took on the name DJ WaveRider. He named his show "The Wave Cave" and was on the air during the afternoon drive time of 4 - 8 PM Eastern every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until August, 2011, when Station Management shifted him from Friday to Saturday. He instituted a couple of things in his show to generate audience participation and also to plug his show among the other DJ's with his "Like It or Spike It"which started and ended with his Monday show and also "News of the Weird" every Monday. He also had a "Weekend Mix" where every song dealt with the Weekend or had a kind of a peppy beat to it every Friday at 5 PM and also a "Monday set" where every song dealt with Monday. It was while he was a DJ with Dreamscape that he had decided to integrate Twitter into his show, and as such he would tweet out his playlist every time he was on the air, thereby building a following and introducing different people to Dreamscape Radio and Portal of Dreams.

In 2011 he listened to Conservative Nation Radio (then called Cain Nation Radio) and wanted to go into talk radio. He told the Station Manager of Dreamscape that he is going to resign to try his hand at talk radio and so he left December 3. The way he wanted to leave was not how he had planned it when Herman Cain decided to drop out of the presidential race. On February 25, 2012, Rick premiered on Conservative Nation Radio with his show "Red, Right, and Blue", and talk radio has never been the same.

On January 2, 2013, Rick found out that his show was being cancelled on Conservative Nation Radio. Later that day Justin Kendall had offered him a spot at the Own The Narrative Network full time since they had been simulcasting his shows. He accepted the offer, and his premiere on Own The Narrative was January 5.

8  America's Founding and Historical Documents / Article IX / Text on: December 25, 2012, 07:01:09 am
The united States in congress assembled, shall have the sole and exclusive right and power of determining on peace and war, except in the cases mentioned in the sixth article of sending and receiving ambassadors entering into treaties and alliances, provided that no treaty of commerce shall be made whereby the legislative power of the respective States shall be restrained from imposing such imposts and duties on foreigners, as their own people are subjected to, or from prohibiting the exportation or importation of any species of goods or commodities whatsoever of establishing rules for deciding in all cases, what captures on land or water shall be legal, and in what manner prizes taken by land or naval forces in the service of the United States shall be divided or appropriated of granting letters of marque and reprisal in times of peace appointing courts for the trial of piracies and felonies committed on the high seas and establishing courts for receiving and determining finally appeals in all cases of captures, provided that no member of Congress shall be appointed a judge of any of the said courts.

The United States in Congress assembled shall also be the last resort on appeal in all disputes and differences now subsisting or that hereafter may arise between two or more States concerning boundary, jurisdiction or any other causes whatever; which authority shall always be exercised in the manner following. Whenever the legislative or executive authority or lawful agent of any State in controversy with another shall present a petition to Congress stating the matter in question and praying for a hearing, notice thereof shall be given by order of Congress to the legislative or executive authority of the other State in controversy, and a day assigned for the appearance of the parties by their lawful agents, who shall then be directed to appoint by joint consent, commissioners or judges to constitute a court for hearing and determining the matter in question: but if they cannot agree, Congress shall name three persons out of each of the United States, and from the list of such persons each party shall alternately strike out one, the petitioners beginning, until the number shall be reduced to thirteen; and from that number not less than seven, nor more than nine names as Congress shall direct, shall in the presence of Congress be drawn out by lot, and the persons whose names shall be so drawn or any five of them, shall be commissioners or judges, to hear and finally determine the controversy, so always as a major part of the judges who shall hear the cause shall agree in the determination: and if either party shall neglect to attend at the day appointed, without showing reasons, which Congress shall judge sufficient, or being present shall refuse to strike, the Congress shall proceed to nominate three persons out of each State, and the secretary of Congress shall strike in behalf of such party absent or refusing; and the judgement and sentence of the court to be appointed, in the manner before prescribed, shall be final and conclusive; and if any of the parties shall refuse to submit to the authority of such court, or to appear or defend their claim or cause, the court shall nevertheless proceed to pronounce sentence, or judgement, which shall in like manner be final and decisive, the judgement or sentence and other proceedings being in either case transmitted to Congress, and lodged among the acts of Congress for the security of the parties concerned: provided that every commissioner, before he sits in judgement, shall take an oath to be administered by one of the judges of the supreme or superior court of the State, where the cause shall be tried, 'well and truly to hear and determine the matter in question, according to the best of his judgement, without favor, affection or hope of reward': provided also, that no State shall be deprived of territory for the benefit of the United States.

All controversies concerning the private right of soil claimed under different grants of two or more States, whose jurisdictions as they may respect such lands, and the States which passed such grants are adjusted, the said grants or either of them being at the same time claimed to have originated antecedent to such settlement of jurisdiction, shall on the petition of either party to the Congress of the United States, be finally determined as near as may be in the same manner as is before prescribed for deciding disputes respecting territorial jurisdiction between different States.

The United States in Congress assembled shall also have the sole and exclusive right and power of regulating the alloy and value of coin struck by their own authority, or by that of the respective States fixing the standards of weights and measures throughout the United States regulating the trade and managing all affairs with the Indians, not members of any of the States, provided that the legislative right of any State within its own limits be not infringed or violated establishing or regulating post offices from one State to another, throughout all the United States, and exacting such postage on the papers passing through the same as may be requisite to defray the expenses of the said office appointing all officers of the land forces, in the service of the United States, excepting regimental officers appointing all the officers of the naval forces, and commissioning all officers whatever in the service of the United States making rules for the government and regulation of the said land and naval forces, and directing their operations.

The United States in Congress assembled shall have authority to appoint a committee, to sit in the recess of Congress, to be denominated 'A Committee of the States', and to consist of one delegate from each State; and to appoint such other committees and civil officers as may be necessary for managing the general affairs of the United States under their direction to appoint one of their members to preside, provided that no person be allowed to serve in the office of president more than one year in any term of three years; to ascertain the necessary sums of money to be raised for the service of the United States, and to appropriate and apply the same for defraying the public expenses to borrow money, or emit bills on the credit of the United States, transmitting every half-year to the respective States an account of the sums of money so borrowed or emitted to build and equip a navy to agree upon the number of land forces, and to make requisitions from each State for its quota, in proportion to the number of white inhabitants in such State; which requisition shall be binding, and thereupon the legislature of each State shall appoint the regimental officers, raise the men and cloath, arm and equip them in a solid- like manner, at the expense of the United States; and the officers and men so cloathed, armed and equipped shall march to the place appointed, and within the time agreed on by the United States in Congress assembled.

And the officers and men so cloathed, armed, and equipped, shall march to the place appointed, and within the time agreed on by the united States in congress assembled.
