Nicole recaps last night's 12-12-12 concert. Speaks with MI blogger Chris Savage @elclectablog about the Fox video editing, Howie Klein about the fiscal negotiations, Boca Britany and Maysoon Zayid too.
I took that picture of a little boy yesterday at the Obama rally in Hollywood FL. My 13 year old daughter only accompanied me because it was my birthday, and I hope that someday she'll look back on it and remember that she saw our first African American President in person. I also hope that, in his second term, President Obama will become a truly great leader. Today is election day and, as soon as this post is up, I'll be taking my absentee ballot in to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office in person, and will wait until they verify [...]
That's me... 53 years ago Sunday. My birthday often falls on election day. Ronald Reagan was elected on my 21st birthday. My first time in the voting booth, and I proudly voted for the candidate that lost. Barack Obama made history on my 49th birthday. And this year, my big day comes two days before election day. People who regularly listen to my show and read this blog know that I always call things the way I see them. Because of that, I've been attacked with pseudo-insults ever since by so-called liberals. I've been called "emo-prog" and "firebagger" (whatever [...]
It's Halloween, so I thought I'd assemble some really scary things for you to think about today (and leading up to election day on Tuesday). 1. In the wake of Sandy, let's remember Mitt Romney's big laugh line during his RNC speech: "President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans...and to heal the planet...." He went on to say that it's immoral for the United States to take out loans to help fellow Americans. Really? I'd say it's immoral not to do anything and everything possible to help those in need, especially after a disaster [...]
If there is a silver lining on the giant Sandy cloud - and I'm not sure there is one - it's that now, perhaps, the powers that be will begin to take the reality of climate change seriously. Words fail me right now. This morning, my friend Greg Basta joined me on the show to talk about the storm. Greg was on with me last week to talk about the release of the Occupy the Boardroom book that's just been published. Of course, I also asked him about his work with New York Communities for Change where he works as [...]
Hurricane Sandy is now officially the biggest tropical cyclone in recorded history. As one who's lived through a few major hurricanes, obviously my thoughts and what passes for prayers in my world are with the millions of people in the path of the storm. That crazy image comes courtesy of my favorite weather source: Wunderground.com. Dr. Jeff Masters has been a frequent guest on my show, but circumstances have him a bit too busy to come on today. I will be checking his blog throughout today as I do both my show and Randi Rhodes' this afternoon. On my [...]
