OWS – One Year Later

Listen to this episode: {play}http://traffic.libsyn.com/radioornot/20120917_Nicole_Sandler_Show_-_OWS_at_1.mp3 {/play} Podcast: Play in new window Occupy Wall Street began one year ago today and, although we might not agree on what they're about, they have succeeded in getting millions of people off their asses and out from behind their computers to join a movement to say that something's gotta change.  Just what it is that has to change and how that change will be accomplished.. well, that's another story entirely. This morning on the show, I spoke with Jesse LaGreca - one of the few to emerge from the leaderless movement as a voice [...]

Enjoy!  I'll talk to you tomorrow... I'm going to sleep....

MayDay, MayDay!

I smell revolution in the air.  It comes with the American Spring and the rebirth of the newly awakened Occupy movement. How apropos that people will protest around the world on May Day!  Not only is it International Workers Day, but mayday is the internationally recognized signal of distress. We'll just scratch the surface of the May 1st General Strike (#M1GS) actions happening around the US today with a few activists.  Robert, aka @rousseau_ist of the Occupied News Network will get us started from McPherson Square in Washington DC.  We'll head up to NYC to talk with Linda Busch Somach [...]

The Solution To Our Problems

Want Medicare for All? Vote Progressive.  Want to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? (Yes, we're still in Iraq.) Vote Progressive.  Want to end the big oil subsidies?  Vote Progressive. Want to encourage the development of clean energy? Vote Progressive.  Want our kids to have access to quality, public education? Vote progressive?  Want fair labor laws?  Vote Progressive.  Want gender and race equality?  Vote Progressive.  Want respect for teachers?  Vote Progressive.  And on and on and on we could go. Honestly.  If you wonder why we had to settle for shitty health care "reform" instead of single payer Medicare [...]

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 [...]

Allen West Must Go

The hate-spewing war criminal from South Florida was at it again this weekend, claiming exclusive rights to this country for his right-wing intolerant, selfish, racist, violent bretheren. I hadn't yet seen it when some mentally challenged friend of a right-wing email buddy of David's hit "reply all" and sent the email to him, complete with this brilliant subject line: Allen West, Congrassman from Fla blasts the commi's If that doesn't tell you enough about West's constituency, here's how the body of the message read: Rep. Allen West - "Obama, Reid, Pelosi, get the hell out of the USA" - 28 [...]

I’m in for Randi Rhodes Again Today & Tomorrow

Big thanks to Shane-O, host of Funked in the Head for guest hosting my show last week while I was in DC, and for the first few days of this week while I guest host the Randi Rhodes Show. Yesterday, I was joined by Peter Nagy of NY Communities for Change, who filled us in on last week's Dec 6  and ongoing action Occupy Our Homes! Greg Palast checked in to once again make our heads spin while talking about the crazy stories he tells in his new book, Vultures Picnic! I also filled you in on my trip to [...]

Assholes on K Street

  Yesterday there were two kinds of assholes on K Street. The first group is there permanently.  They're the ones who buy off members of Congress and get them to do their bidding.  On behalf of the K Street lobbyists, Congress passed bad laws and did nothing to stop the Wall Street excesses and theft from the 99% that led to the destruction of our economy. That's why almost two thousand people converged on Washington DC this week - to Take Back the Capitol. On Tuesday, we descended on 99 congressional offices to tell our representatives that we [...]
