History Keeps Repeating

We know that history tends to repeat itself. Today is the 51st anniversary of the March on Washington, which brought us Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech. It's the 46th anniversary of the infamous police riot that broke out during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, when police brutalized thousands of anti-war protesters on nationwide television as the demonstrators chanted, “The whole world is watching.” 57 years ago today, North Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond began an (unsuccessful) attempt to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957. He spoke for 24 hours and 18 minutes, setting a record [...]

Hey 47% or More of America, Mitt’s Just Not That Into You

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120918_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-Mitt_and_the_pesky_47_percent.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   So to half of the nation, Mitt just doesn't care about you.   Even if you consider yourself a Republican because you believe in small government (your party left you a long, long time ago), I don't see how anyone could vote for this man and then sleep at night. Even the most cynical among us has to believe that the president is there to represent all the people, not just those in his own socio-economic class. Put everything else aside, this alone is enough to make you [...]

How Can We Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120801_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_MittTwitisms_vs_Bushisms.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   That's an actual billboard that appeared in a few cities around the country this year. Seriously.   My answer to the question is a resounding "NO!".  In fact, the inane Bushisms that he subjected the American public to for eight long years have been replaying in my mind recently as Mitt Romney has been quite prolific with his own arsenal of assininity. A couple of months ago, I put together a montage of some of Mitt's stupider sayings, and realized this morning that it was time for an [...]

Point- Counterpoint

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120718_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Point_Counterpoint.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window   Today, we heard two sides from the left. From the Democratic party, chair of the DNC - Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz joined in to talk about President Obama's visit to Florida (tomorrow and Friday - info & ticket sign-up can be found here!). Debbie and I have been been speaking on the radio for a number of years now, and I've always challenged her with the tough questions. Today was no different.  I asked about a few things on my mind, including why the Democratic party uses contributor [...]

Mitt, Manning & Matthews

Malloy from Radio to Or Not

{play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120516_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_Malloy.mp3{/play}  PODCAST: Play in new window Yes, you read right. Mike Malloy crosses over from the traditional world of terrestrial radio to the alternative ...or not world of the interwebs.  Well, for a short while, anyway, as he is my guest on the show this morning. I'm writing this early, as I have a very busy day, and want links and videos posted ... so who knows where our conversation will go.  All I know is you won't want to miss it. We'll chat with another outspoken voice - Cliff Schecter - in the first hour.   And I have [...]

GOP, Hypocrisy is Thy Name

Rick "Frothy" Santorum - you fucking hypocrite.  You say President Obama is "snob" because he wants every young person to have access to at least one year of higher education.  You, frothty, who hold an an M.B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh, and a law degree degree from the Dickinson School of Law. And, of course, your undergraduate degree from Penn State.  While we've all been wondering what happened to you to make you such a hateful, spiteful, vindictive piece of shit, I think that Penn State might have something to do with it. Did you perhaps spend some time [...]

Occupy the Ballot Box

                      Today, Republicans are voting here in Florida. I couldn't vote as I'm most certainly not a Republican! But I did talk with two occupy protesters today - one in DC and one in Oakland - both of whom seemed to understand the need to occupy the ballot box. First up, I spoke with Eric Loetke, a PTA dad and Occupy DC protester.  Although the DC Parks Police issued a deadline of noon yesterday for both encampments at McPherson Sqaure and Freedom Plaza to be cleared, the police have yet [...]
