RAY HANANIA'S Column-Commentary Podcasts, June 23, 2016

Tougher crackdown on guns is necessary for a safer society
We need gun control and we need to extend existing bans to prevent the sale of all forms of "automatic weapons (Semi Automatic and Fully Automatic.) We also need to increase the penalties on the possession of illegal gun ownership with up to 25 years in prison for individuals who use guns in a crime, to the death penalty for anyone who kills someone using a gun.

Ray Hanania's column & commentary podcast. June 16, 2016 on Baby boomers, diets and weight loss.

Baby Boomers, red meats and an obsession with weight

June 16, 2016 Column (Southwest News Newspaper Group, Illinois News Network at IllinoisNewsNetwork.com.)

By Ray Hanania

Many social patterns arose during thehigh points of the Baby Boomer generation.

They include a lot of things, like:

“Seizing the day,” Carpe Diem,which basically means one of two things to Baby Boomers: not saving until you are in the final turn towards retirement, or using your success to fleece the public to pack your retirement benefits beyond justification, something many state educators and government union bosses have done.

Embracing drugs including marijuana,while turning to alcohol obsession as a legal alternative.

Eating like there was no tomorrow.Our generation helped build the extremely unhealthy fast food industry. Baby Boomers financed the rise of the barbecue, which wasn’t used to cook healthy foods but to eat bad foods like red meats,processed garbage like hot dogs and baloney and red meat mixed with “meat slime” and “glue,” yes Glue!

Our generation fueled the rise of health clubs, places more about socializing than weight lose or health for most people. Some people more easily benefit from exercise and six-packs come naturally. But for the majority, exercise is not the answer to manage weight problems. It definitely is helpful, though. ... (Click to read more)

ARAB RADIO JESSE SBAIH, CANDIDATE NEVADA, APRIL 8

Jesse SbaihJesse Sbaih

Jesse Sbaih, a congressional candidate running in Nevada's 3rd district in the June 14 Democratic Primary election, joins The Arab Daily News Radio program, Friday April 8 to discuss his candidacy. Sbaih is American Arab and Muslim and he was told by Democratic Senator Harry Reid that he could not win election in Nevada because of his religion. Sbaih immigrated to America with his parents from Jordan when he was a young child. His parents are Palestinian refugees (father from Jerusalem, mother from Hebron). He is one of seven candidates seeking the Democratic Party nomination for Congress in the 3rd District.

Reid is reflecting the reality of the challenges that discrimination against American Arabs and Muslims has created in this country. But Sbaih discusses that issue and others during the 60 minute long interview with radio host Ray Hanania. 

The radio interview is broadcast live on WNZK AM 690 Radio in Detroit and on AM 700 Radio in Washington D.C. and is podcast.

We discuss Sbaih's election candidacy and how his race and religion play into politics. Has he experienced discrimination, but also the support he has received from voters not driven by stereotypes and racism? We also discuss the issues he is addressing and his campaign platform. Additionally, we'll discuss the role of American Arabs and Muslims in the election process. Do we take the system for granted? Do we do enough to participate and vote? Are we respected in the American political system and in American society?

How can we empower our community to be a more effective voice in helping to define the American political process and system.

TheDailyHookah.com and TheArabDailyNews.com present the Arab Radio show with Ray Hanania Friday Feb. 12, 2016.

This weeks topic is who Arab Christians, Chaldeans and Arab Muslims support for President of the United States. Callers discuss who they support and why.
The final vote tally based on the phone calls is Donald Trump 70 percent, Bernie Sanders 20 percent and Ted Cruz 10 percent. Many Arabs vote Republican and believe Donald Trump is the tough leader who can stand up to religious fanaticism and extremism in the Middle East, such as ISIS, Daesh and al-Qaeda, and are upset by the killing of Christians in the Muslim World.
Arabs also do not mind supporting Bernie Sanders who is Jewish and believe he could be more objective in addressing the violence and brutality of the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu, who many believe is a war criminal and should be charged with war crimes for murdering civilians and lying about terrorism. Sanders supports Israel, but he also supports a moderate position including two-states and a State of Palestine.
