The Legacy of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Pleasure

It was a bittersweet moment for me as I recorded my last show for Season Two of Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Pleasure on America Out Loud. Although I am glad for having some of my time back to do things I need or choose to do (getting up at 4:30 am was tough some days!), I will truly miss the thought provoking, educational, varied and invigorating conversations with the 9 other fantastic and amazing women hosting that show.
I spent some time today reflecting on the journey to this day, and it’s really been an amazing and fulfilling roadtrip of life. My husband, Dr Ron Martinelli, a forensic criminologist has long been writing for various publications, and been on T.V. regularly as an expert in his field. Each of us owns a business, his in experting in police practices and forensics, law enforcement training, and civilian training, and mine in the field of printing and marketing for businesses. Both companies are successful, and Ron and I talk about any and everything within our lives and our businesses. Ron suggested to me that I write for America Out Loud, but I was not so sure that I could take on more responsibility. After talking to Malcolm at America Out Loud, I was excited for the opportunity to write for someone that would let me say the things that I was passionate about, without censoring what I write. 
Although I had never written for public consumption, I believe in pushing myself to try new things and open new doors. Writing has been an absolute joy for me and the response has been unexpected and wonderful.
Then came a phone call from Malcolm, asking me if I would like to be on the radio on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Pleasure, Season 2. I was extremely flattered, but told my husband I did not want to be on the radio. I would feel so exposed there and it was scary, out of my wheelhouse and comfort zone. But the part of myself that realizes it is out of my comfort zone, is also the part that kicks me in the rear end every time and says that is all the more reason to do it. It’s a big part of me, to take that uncomfortable risk, because if we don’t, how do we ever grow in life. How do  we get an opportunity to really become all that we can become, but by moving out of comfort into discomfort until that becomes your new comfort zone? It’s a challenge I have forced myself to take all of my life, and it has worked well for me. There is always the option to change directions if things go south.
I’ll never forget the first show, the self-doubt I punished myself with, afraid to sound foolish in front of family and friends. Of the 10 hosts, 7 were “liberal” and 3 were  “conservative”. I thought it might be a fight at times, but it never was. That first show, where we discussed if a woman SHOULD be elected as President went fine though, much to my surprise, and  every show after that went better and better. I am an educated and opinionated common sense conservative, and my voice matters as much as anyone else’s. I have life experiences to draw from in so many varied areas, that I realized that I do have value to add to the conversation.
In Season 2, we had ten women from all different places within the U.S and outside the U.S. We all have different backgrounds, different careers, and different political views. We are different races, religions, sexual orientations. Some are married, some not, some have children, some not. 
The most valuable lesson I learned on Life Liberty was this. We all have more in common than not. We can have respectful discussions on politics and religion, on the 2nd amendment, on social issues, on relationship issues, on ANY issue. We can agree to disagree without name-calling, and vitriol. We can end our discussions as friends and colleagues, despite our differences, and we found more gray areas than we did black and white. America Out Loud, and Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Pleasure is a beacon of light in how conversations can be had, and should be had in our country, amongst people who are of different minds. I, and the ladies of Life Liberty are committed to spreading this message as far and wide as we can.
We are proof that it can be done. We are not going away after today, we are morphing into a group of women with powerful voices and will carry our message to the world and our legacy will be to continue to bring people together. We will be writing, we will be accepting speaking engagements, we will be doing podcasts and radio shows. The 20 women of Seasons 1 and 2 are intelligent, articulate, passionate, diverse, opinionated and they are the best example of how we as a society can come together and find common ground
For myself, I had a new opportunity come my way, disguised as a challenge. I was asked if I was interested in having my own radio show on America Out Loud. No, I really wasn’t….until…. it occurred to me that the person that I have the best and most invigorating and thought provoking conversations is none other than my husband, Dr Ron. I believe that the things we talk about are the things that America talks about around their dinner tables, with their families and friends. I believe that Americans are tired of being talked at by the media, and told what to think. So we together developed Talking While Married, a one hour show where Ron and I talk to each other, as we talk in our own home, on big issues, small issues, heartwarming stories, frost my socks moments, and heroes amongst us. Please join us for coffee Monday through Friday at 8pm EST on Americaoutloud.com, and visit us on Facebook at Talking While Married.

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #7

How could the Delta variant be more contagious than the original Sars Covid, since variant comes from it? I would like to know what Dr. McCullough thinks about the possible connection between vaccine side effects and inadvertent intravenous injection of the vaccine? I work at a government lab, and we are being forced to take it or be fired by Nov 15th….. Help!! Please!

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

It’s much like the people in the story of The Emperor’s Clothes; the American people are either afraid of, or ignorant of, the facts, and are therefore unwilling to point out the obvious. I haven’t even found any evidence that this Permanent Apportionment Act of 1929 was even challenged in court, much less among the states. This lie has been going around for so long most Americans have been gaslighted into believing it’s true…

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

As a crisis develops, Democrats will use the propaganda resources of the mass media to promote their victimization and blame “White Privilege” as the reason for the supposed inefficiencies and injustices that keep them always subservient to their welfare status. CRT is another attack on a functioning America. Democrats offer false hope to the underclass…

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

At the moment, a ‘woke’ American military is not even capable of protecting the US borders let alone confronting a determined enemy. The USA is a naked target at the moment, and it will be innocent civilians who will pay the ultimate price for the gross betrayal by all its leaders to protect them from evil, starting with Joe Biden, the Traitor in Chief…

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

Under woke military leadership, the US has fallen so far behind China and Russia that our best experts have no idea how the Chinese could accomplish this nuclear missile flight and strike. Milley and Austin and the Marxist Democrats (both the puppets such as Biden and the puppet masters such as Soros organizations) already have blood on their hands from Afghanistan.

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

Parents have responsibly refused to stand idly by as arrogant academic ideologues teach their kids to judge one another by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character; malign their country as systemically and irredeemably evil rather than celebrate America’s virtues; and witness their tax money wasted on failed schools, failed curricula, and failed outcomes…

Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny

Patients and family members should demand “shared decision making” and enforce a patient bill of rights that ensures all parties agree on the treatment course. America has been rocked by the court cases that families have brought to bare getting court orders to force doctors and hospitals to administer proper care…

The Soviet State, American Style!

The Soviet State, American Style!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship. Biden’s administration is a crime syndicate specializing in bribery and extortion. Demanding the entire population be injected by unproven but already demonstrably dangerous vaccines, is revealing to us the very essence of the Soviet state, American style. If they get away with it, the mandated vaccinations will be just the beginning…

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego. The mainstream media tell us the cause is a shortage of truck drivers. Now we find out that there ARE enough drivers (for the Ports, at least). The real cause is the State of California imposing an…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”
