2-7-17 Nicole Sandler Show – The End of Public Education

Betsy DeVos bought her way into the Secretary of Education Job. Today, Nicole is joined by GottaLaff and Boca Brit Somers.  And American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten called in to talk about just how bad this is. After Randi's call, a listener called in to ask what the names are of Betsy DeVos' companies that profit off of our public education funds... so I did a quick search, and found this Truthout article that links to this public disclosure report. She's up to her eyeballs in conflicts of interest...

8-22-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Back to School, Weather Permitting

I decided to cut the show back to one hour a day today and, of course, forgot to start the recorder going. On top of that, I forgot to start the YouTube stream! So today's show begins already in progress... It just shows how scattered I've been lately. The one thing I haven't been scattered about is the cancer. I keep all the doctors appointments straight and, for the most part, have stayed on top of the stupid, unnecessary, bullshit referrals. I did my research and met with three surgeons, and made a decision. And now my surgery is scheduled [...]

3-14-16 Nicole Sandler Show – Piece of the Pi

It's National Pi Day! Nicole Sandler welcomes Bernie Sanders supporter Portia Boulger to the show after she was mis-identified by Trump supporters as the Nazi salute woman outside one of this rallies. Plus Joel Silberman weighs in on the media malpractice that created the monster that is Donald Trump.

Where’s the 2016 Cannabis Animus?

  No campaign cycle Reaganesque Drug War dra-ma on this season of The Apprentice: Oval Office? It's as if none o' the Rethugs can be bothered to give MJ legalization the time or Faux Fvxed Up outrage it deserves! Pitiful effort. A couple dozen +/_ GOP candidates and not a one of them gives an audible damn about bashing the Demon Weed this election cycle?? Is that scaffolding over the dome right now truly just one giant MJ vaping filtration system Congress stealth-ordered way ahead of the District managing to lift 78 years of pot prohibition on itself?   All [...]

And then Bill die Kristolnachtt Blamed Okie Racism On da Black People *Updated*

By our friend Mel Neuhaus @acehanna54   Trust Kristol to supersize the clumsy and way too early mawnin' racism. Just another Live moment of Regressive Right Surreality aboard the Morning Schmoe and Meeka Showboat. They of course had to discuss the ΣΑΕ Racist Chanting Chorus in Ok-la-homa. Where a surprising amount of young white supremacists reign. Who could all learn a thing or deuces from conservative view-finder-and-professional-panderer,  the sub-standard Billy K. Who likes to judge the 'cesspool' of modern urban culture. Who wandered over from Fvx Nation to blow some stale smoke up Hillary's pantsuit leg and got waaay [...]

Homegrown Female Genital Mutilation In the U.S. Skyrockets

    This is a number that should induce massive gender-neutral outrage. According to draft statistics in a CDC study released to The Guardian and offered at Raw Story for our communal horror, the reported amount of women and girls mutilated and [surviving] victims of FGM in America has shot up from 168,000 to 513,000. The population of my native state of Vermont is less than that without the seasonal flocks of second-homers. From the article, an excerpt on why the timing is so meaningful. And the facts so in need of noting and acting on. Post outrage. New figures [...]

“Dear Gov. Cuomo, please stop blaming teachers for your failure to support our public school” #MoralMondays

The Rev. William Barber II urges education equality at the NYS Capitol. #MoralMondays #FaithFairNY pic.twitter.com/wAfVD5jN6U — CSEA Local 1000 (@CSEALocal1000) January 12, 2015 A lot of us are loyal liberals, passionate Progressives, devoted Democrats. However, that doesn't mean we blindly support Democrats who don't act like Democrats, at least not if we want this country to evolve and prosper. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is one of those Dems who has given real Progressives pause. And by pause I mean hives. For example, Cuomo attacked teacher pensions in his second inauguration speech. And here's another link you may find interesting. Now back to Moral Monday [...]
