Connecting with a Pakistani

You might remember during the Egyptian revolution, I called and spoke to a number of regular Egyptians - from hotel clerks, to Marwa Rakha, a woman who dispenses relationship advice online (and just gave birth to her son, Adam. on May 3 - a great day to have a kid.  It happens to be both my daughter's and my mother's birthday too!). Today, I reached out to Kaswar Klasra, a young man born and raised in Pakistan, he works as a journalist for The Nation (Pakistan).  Although it's difficult at times to understand what he's saying due to his accent, [...]

On HR3, Osama bin Laden, and Allen West’s Very Small Penis

Quite a show today... David Dayen, who always does a great job covering the news for FireDogLake, joined me near the top of the show to give the details on yesterday's passage of HR3 - the anti-choice bill - by the House of Representatives.  Sixteen so-called Democrats joined with all the Republicans to limit women's rights to control our own bodies.

Wars, Lies, and Videotape

***Update added -- scroll down*** The only thing missing was the sex.  We learned a few things this week: War is NOT the way to combat terrorism. You can take out a terrorist with trained soldiers, and don't have to drop a single bomb in innocent civilians.

Lauderdale Police and Broward County Sheriff's deputies LIE incessantly The idea of the presumption of innocence until proven guilty is a myth in the United [...]

War Criminal

You might think I'm talking about Osama Bin Laden, but I'm not.  I'm glad Bin Laden is gone. Now maybe we can bring our troops home and stop killing people. But the war criminal I'm writing about now is Allen West, who disregarded the Geneva Conventions in 2003 when he carried out a mock execution of an Iraqi police officer - shot a gun right over his head.  He was relieved of his command and fined $5000.  Truthout's Jason Leopold joined me on the show today to give the whole story of Allen West's war crimes... everything you'd never wanted [...]
