Talk to you later on the Randi Rhodes Show!

The Tuesday Randi Rhodes Show

As you know by now, I'm filling in for Randi Rhodes for these last two weeks of the year.  Yesterday, we listened back to some of the news from January, as we started on our journey through the past year in the rear view mirror...  Today we'll venture back through February and March. Once again, we'll be joined by Tim Karr of FreePress.net and SaveTheInternet.com, who was at today's FCC hearing and vote on their new "net neutrality" regulations.  I put that in quotes because, unfortunately, it's fake net neutrality.  The Washington Post has this wrap-up of today's meeting here.

Standing Up For What’s Right

It's what I try to do on my show every day. But in real life, do we truly take action? I understand, life gets in the way.  Working -sometimes 2 or 3 jobs- to get enough money to feed our kids and pay the rent - or mortgage, if we haven't yet lost our homes.  Taking care of the kids, the car, the house, the dogs... then we're supposed to get active too? Of course, there's the money issue.  There are always great actions going on in Washington DC that we'd love to attend... if it didn't cost money that [...]

Of Saints and Sinners

Richard Holbrooke died yesterday.  Its amazing to me how, upon a persons death, people are afraid to speak truthfully. Although Holbrooke did some good things (anyone who tries to work through diplomatic channels can't be all bad!), he was also one of the architects of the Vietnam War, and authored some of the Pentagon Papers, showing he knew full-well that that war was a no-win situation. Holbrooke is being lionized in the media today, but not by all.  All one has to do is follow Jeremy Scahill's twitter feed.  He's been speaking out about the man he's covered for years, [...]

The Morning After

OK, so I was wrong with a couple of my predictions.  Florida's loathsome Attorney General, Bill McCollum, will not be running for Governor after all. Perhaps it was his decision to take Florida's taxpayers money to spearhead a misguided attempt by a group of AGs to sue  the federal government over the health care law.  But whatever the reason, the Republicans of Florida decided that the sleazy billionaire Rick Scott--who didn't bother to show up at any debates with his opponent, including one just four days ago where he sent his mother in his stead-- would make a better candidate!
