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 [...]

On Progressives Candidates, Komen and Chatting Made Easier

I've been busy getting our new chatroom up and running...  If you registered today here on the website, you might have to re-register tomorrow using the chat registration.  But after that, we're done! In the first hour of the show, I was joined by Howie Klein of Down With Tyranny and the Blue America PAC, talking about the need to elect real progressives to office, and a few of them who are worthy of your votes and donations! In hour two - as we do every Monday - I was joined by Nicole Belle of Crooks and Liars for our [...]

Nukes, Liberals and the End of the World

That was today's show in a nutshell... Well, the nut part was the talk about the rapture. But let's start with the serious stuff first. Nuclear power.  When the end of the world does come, it'll be due to nukes... whether of the plants of mass destruction (my new name for nuclear power plants) or nuclear weapons. And the way things are going, it could happen soon. Very soon. But we do have a chance to save the world. Harvey Wasserman - the guy behind MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) back in the 70s - has never stopped fighting [...]

Wednesday, Round 2

Getting ready for today's Randi Rhodes Show, with lots to talk about! Of course, we started the day with a loud bang (and John McCain's still complaining about it) as President Obama signed the law repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell. Now, that's the holiday spirit! But there are still a few bills dangling as the GOP Senators keep complaining they have to work!  We should get some resolution today on the START Treaty, which made it through a cloture vote yesterday with the 67 votes needed for ratification of a treaty! The big mystery at this hour is the fate [...]

Socialism, Health Care Reform and John Fugelsang too!

I'm sick and tired of the Right Wing Nut Jobs who continue to call President Obama and the Democratic Party "Socialists". When I attended David Cobb's Move To Amend speaking tour stop in Ft. Lauderdale recently, I met Marc Luzietti.  He ambled up to the microphone to ask a question, and identified himself as being with the Socialist Party of Florida. Of course, I invited him to join me on the show.  He'll join me today to tell us what they stand for.  (Hint: It looks a lot like what we progressives and liberals wish the Democrats would be, with [...]
