    1st hr.--'Left Agenda w/ Stewart Alexander'
    2nd hr.-'Progress Toward Democracy w/ Brian Stetten and Ruthann Amarteifio'
    X On 'Left Agenda with Stewart Alexander', Bob Maschi joins us once again.
    Stewart and Bob will be discussing:' Subjects Frequently Missed in the State Of The Union Address'
    President Barack Obama will deliver his final State Of The Union Address this Tuesday, presenting a theatrical performance outlining a less than objective view of U.S. politics at home and the U.S. role in international affairs.
    However, Stewart and Bob will discuss the state of the union for the 1% and for the 99%.They will also speak of how the U.S. government has chosen war and aggression as opposed to achieving world peace.
    If you believe the state of the union has improved under the leadership of President Obama, the Democrats, and Republicans, you may want to miss THIS show. 
    X Daily Kos has this to say about our guest on 'Progress Toward Democracy......'
    "Tim Canova was an early critic of financial deregulation and the Federal Reserve under Alan Greenspan.  In the 1980s, he wrote critically of the federal bailout of Continental Illinois, the nation’s seventh largest commercial bank, and the collapse of the savings & loan industry.  In the 1990s, prior to the Asian currency contagion, he argued against the liberalization of capital accounts.  Throughout the Bush administration, he warned of an impending crisis in the bubble economy.  Since 2008, he has lectured and written widely on the causes and consequences of the present economic and financial crisis."
    Tim is running against Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in the 23rd District of Florida---Hopefully this will be the end of this woman being in a position of power!!
