The Corporate States of America with a Privatized FEMA

  In one of the GOP's many primary debates, CNN's John King asked Mitt Romney that, in light of the disastrous recent weather events in Joplin, MO,  New Orleans and other cities, what should be done with FEMA?  Romney's answer was Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better. [...] We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It [...]

Atlas Scared

Listen to this episode: {play} {/play} Podcast: Play in new window I'm back to my regular schedule today, as Randi Rhodes returns to her radio perch this afternoon.  But as I always do when I guest host her show, I had a blast over the past few weeks.  It's an honor to be entrusted with her microphone and loyal listeners, and I hope we'll have some new friends joining us here at RadioOrNot.  BTW, I'll be back in for Randi next Friday, July 20, when she heads to Seattle for KPTK's big progressive soiree... In the meantime, the show goes [...]

Why Do You Think They Call It Flori-DUH?

Listen to this episode: {play } {/play} Podcast: Play in new window Oh Floriduh, you break my heart.  First, you screw things up so terribly you give the presidency to a loser (in more ways than one) in 2000.  then, in 2010, you elect Volermort to the Governor's office, and put a war criminal - Allen West - into Congress. It's bad enough that you continuing punishing felons long after they've paid their debt to society by denying them their right to vote, but now you want to, almost arbitrarily, take away the vote from citizens just because their name [...]

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 [...]

Atlas Drugged: Ayn Rand Be Damned!

    Today is tax day, but there are many among us who don't want to pay their fair share of taxes.  If Paul Ryan - who gives a copy of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged to all of his staffers and requires they read it - had his way, the wealthiest among us would pay even less in taxes than they already do, while the rest of us would get hit with a bigger bill each year at this time. But at what cost?  We're already headed on the road to austerity.  The rich keep getting richer while the rest [...]
