Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) I lifted the title of the film we'll be discussing on today's show and used it as the title for this episode because it's a custom fit. The film Not Going Quietly tells Ady Barkan's story. If you were at all involved in the fight over the last 10+ years for Medicare For All, you likely know about Ady Barkan. Always a progressive activist and organizer, Ady was diagnosed with ALS.

1-20-20 Nicole Sandler Show – 10 Years Ago-CItizens United Arrives, Air America Leaves

  Tomorrow marks ten years. Ten years since the Supreme Court doubled down on the idea that corporations are people and money is speech. It’s no wonder that this is where we are today. But that decision from the Court wasn’t the only tragedy that occurred on January 21, 2010. On that afternoon, Air America Radio announced they were filing for bankruptcy, Chapter 7, so no efforts to reorganize and come back. It was over. Done Kaput. On that night, instead of waiting for the ISDN connection to the Air America studios from my home studio in Miami, at 11pm [...]

“Every time you vote Republican, you probably are voting against your self-interest.” #CitizensUnited

Michael Hiltzik is a top notch columnist, and some of his readers who commented on a recent Los Angeles Times post of his apparently agree. He wrote about something that is destroying what's left of our democracy: Campaign finance, specifically the Supreme Court Citizens United decision that legally transformed corporations into people: In the wake of Citizens United, the voice of the ordinary citizen has all but disappeared from Capitol Hill. It doesn't matter whether the donors are Democrats or Republicans; money becomes a political interest on its own. Nor is it a virtue of Citizens United that it took contribution limits [...]
