It's a busy Wednesday. Former CIA officer Jack Rice was up first to talk about the latest on Syria, Russia, FISA warrant for Carter Page and more intrigue. And to lighten the mood, my fellow FloriDUHian Deborah Newell returns for another segment of Oy FloriDUH
I didn't get any "Gary Johnson"s, so we've got that going for us. When I asked the question today, "Who Are You Voting For, and Why?" I knew I'd get a variety of answers. But I do admit to being surprised by the guy who claimed to be a Bernie supporter voting for Trump as a way of supporting Bernie. I only called one person an idiot today, and that was him. I have been thinking about the answers and the passion from those who are voting for Jill Stein. Some people will - and we know that. I am just [...]
Yesterday, I talked about working out the conflicts of our inner voices, though some people thought I "went too far." Others thanked me for being "spot on." All I know is all I know. Today, it's that the world continues down its pathway of madness. People hear what they want to hear instead of actually listening to what's being said. We talk past one another instead of with each other. Until we learn to shut up and listen, we're bound to continue making the same mistakes. Today, I talked a bit about that disconnect. I praised the celebration of [...]
We awoke to an awful déjà vu this morning. Another black man was killed by cops in a show of excessive, brutal police force. Alton Sterling, a 37-year old father of five, was selling CDs in front of a convenience store, something he did regularly to help support his family. Someone called the cops on him, and now Alton Sterling is dead. We are talking about it because someone captured the shooting on video. And now a second video has surfaced. And tomorrow, the trial begins for the most senior of the cops who was involved in the wild [...]
I'm conflicted, in case I haven't already made that clear. As I wrote earlier this morning when introducing Mimi Kennedy's guest post, I can't imagine myself voting for Hillary Clinton for president, but even more inconceivable to me is the idea of a Donald Trump presidency! The good news is that I still have about five months before I have to decide what I'll do come election day. This is the time for looking at the big picture, which is what Bernie Sanders did in an op-ed for the NY Times titled "Democrats Need to Wake Up." I read the [...]
Things didn't go as well as we had hoped last night, but the political revolution continues. This morning, Nicole Sandler opens the phones to talk with her listeners - from the Bernie or Busters to those who say we must unify to defeat Trump . Deborah Newell became a citizen to be able to vote for Bernie Sanders, and joins in today to talk about the road forward.
Today, Nicole Sandler invites her listeners down to the swampy southland known as Florida (FloriDUH to most of us). Deborah Newell joins in for our weekly segment poking fun at FloriDUH, Sanders delegate to the DNC from Palm Beach County, Hillary Keyes, will fill us in on the process and what happens next. And Nicole pulls out a blast from the past - a 2007 interview with Debbie Wasserman Schultz to show how long she's been at odds with the (soon to be former?) DNC Chair.
Nicole Sandler covers the ongoing "he said, she said" about the NV Democratic convention on Saturday, yesterday's OR & KY primaries, and the rest of the madness surrounding the 2016 presidential campaign with today's guests Deborah Newell and Seth Abramson.
If you think this country has gone mad, you're not alone. Today, we talk about the insane with Deborah Newell (@litbrit) in FloriDUH and in primary-land. And we'll get a dose of sanity from Debbie Lusignan, aka Sane Progressive here on YouTube and beyond.
On Wednesday mornings, Nicole hangs with her fellow FloriDUHian Deborah Newell to poke some fun at the state that is the nation's dick. In addition to today Floriduh files and a recap of last night's primary results, we'll go back in time 5 years to the night Nicole was arrested for committing democracy, underscoring our need to fight on for what's important. And a detour to talk with the 10 year old girl who sang with Bruce Springsteen Monday night.
