TFP - Upcoming Events December 2012

Truth, Freedom, Prosperity is a Philly based, local group of activists who share common interests. Most notably, truth, freedom, and prosperity. We've never been interested in trying to start national chapters, becoming incorporated, or trying to raise anything other than awareness on a local level. Our members strive to improve themselves, and in turn, the world around them. Here is a list of upcoming events either hosted by, or hold heavy interest by TFP members. Look through, see if something grabs your interest, and come join us!

We're back folks! My guest this week is Luis Torres (and one more unconfirmed guest) from the Philly based band Starving the Tsunami. Luis is more than just a front man for a band, he's a sound engineer, a dedicated freedom loving activist, and to top it off, he's funny, cool as hell, and as an added bonus, a good friend of mine. He also recently started writing a blog called Out of the Silent Planet

Luis has been at countless TFP events, always has great insight, is great to have around, and most recently, he and I, among other TFP members, visited Staten Island to deliver 5 truckloads of food, clothes, toiletries, etc., to the people of Oakwood Beach whose homes were destroyed by hurricane Sandy.

Join us live this Monday on episode 19 of the MSW podcast for yet another fantastic fun, heartfelt, and hopefully fun show!

    Hurricane Sandy Relief - Philly to Staten Island - Road Trip for Love

    Direct experience. Videos, pictures, and secondhand stories will do the situation in New York and New Jersey no justice. After what may seem to some as a long few days of rounding up supplies, food, water, toiletries, clothing, loading building materials, driving two hours to New York, unloading materials, aiding in clean up recording footage, interviewing people, then driving home from two hours from New York, I found myself home, showered, in my warm bed, in my warm house, and honestly felt completely drained. 

    The next morning, I struggled to turn over in an attempt to get out of bed. My phone ringing, buzzing with voicemails, emails, twitter and facebook messages, my barking dog waiting to be let outside, my four cats surrounding my bed meowing waiting to be fed, all was purposely ignored for more sleep...5 more minutes, 5 more minutes. 

    I was then quickly reminded of the people of Oakwood Beach community in Staten Island, New York who had no covers, no heat, no bed, no shower, no food, and no homes. The feeling I referred to as "tired" vanished instantly. I sprung out of bed with the same level of gratitude as George Bailey at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life." 

    Thursday morning I received a call from a friend of mine suggesting a road trip on Saturday to help the people affected by hurricane Sandy. Over the past few years Philadelphia has developed an activist community known as Truth, Freedom, Prosperity. This group originally started as a means for educational outreach, and has since turned into something much greater. The group has attracted some of the most selfless people I could ever imagine and I'm beyond proud to call them my family. 

    With just 48 hours notice the group rounded up five truckloads packed with donations. Food, water, clothing, toiletries, and building materials. We left Philadelphia Saturday morning and headed up to Oakwood Beach community at Staten Island New York. Our mission was threefold, to deliver donations, attempt to boost morale by reassuring everyone that they're not alone, and to document as much as we could. 

    Quite honestly, the list of people to thank for this is extremely long, but if you had a hand in this effort, big or small, I can't even begin to thank you enough. I'm eternally grateful to have you in my life. As a friend said, we hardly made a dent in the problem, but it was truly a solid effort from the City of Brotherly Love. This was the first of many efforts in shining light on what is otherwise under-reported in Staten Island. 

    For more information, contacts, and donations, go to every little bit helps.

    Mike Salvi - Medical Marijuana Interview

    A group of students are doing a documentary for class and asked me to be interviewed regarding medical marijuana and the state and federal laws affecting it. 

    I don't know how much of the interview will make it into the documentary, but I was given the raw footage of the interview. The full documentary is only for their class and won't be made public, however, I was told I can do whatever I want with my interview. So whoomp, there it is, enjoy.

    Ep 18 - MSW Podcast ft Mark Passio 11/5/12 at 10pm EST

    Recorded Live Monday 11/5/12 at 10pm EST

    Click here to download and listen to the audio version of MSW 18 ft Mark Passio

    Remember, remember...this 5th of November, independent researcher, educator, host of the "What On Earth Is Happening" podcast, TFP assistant organizer, vocalist, my friend, and overall amazing person, Mark Passio joins you and I for episode 18 of the "Mike Salvi's World" podcast! Tune in Monday, 11/5/12 at 10pm EST.

    What On Earth Is Happening is a culmination of many years of Mark's extensive research and investigation into the nature of our shared reality.

    Through his presentations, videos and podcasts, Mark takes his guests on a journey of self-exploration, examining human Consciousness and the way it relates to the universal problems which we currently face as a species. Some of the questions Mark attempts to answer are:

    Who are we? What is our purpose? Why do we hold certain beliefs? Why do we tend to see ourselves and others in a certain way? Why do we act the way we do toward ourselves and others? What does any of this have to do with the events we experience in our world?

    Having successfully begun his work as a presenter of the message of spiritual awareness, Mark is now taking a pro-active approach to the task of spreading this significant information to others. This has resulted in What On Earth Is Happening, a penetrating analysis into the realm of human Consciousness.

    Mark is also hosting the 2nd Free Your Mind Conference in Philly April 25-27, 2013, buy your tickets in advance at

    Share this page, invite friends on Monday 11/5/12 at 10pm EST to stop by Mike Salvi's World for what will certainly be a powerful episode!
