SORT BY Relevancy
MOMocrats Donna Schwartz Mills and Cynematic talk about ending the war in Iraq and what's next for our troops with Stephanie Himel-Nelson of Blue Star Families. Karoli and Jaelithe Judy are also on hand for a lively discussion of the payroll tax holiday that isn't, thanks to Republicans in the House.
Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills are joined by two of the MOMocrats' legal eagles: Law professor Jessica Mason Pieklo (aka "Hegemommy") and Joanne Bamberger (aka "PunditMom"). Topics include the controversial cases that will be decided by the Supreme Court in the 2012 session, a report by Pieklo on her recent visit to Ghana, and Pundit Mom's holiday gift guide for political junkies.
Join Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills for a lively talk with four women running for school board in Bill Gates' backyard up in Seattle. Sharon Peaslee, Michelle Buetow, Kate Martin and Marty McLaren have a vision for education in their district, and we'll hear why it doesn't completely mesh with that of Gates and the Broad Foundation's plans for education reform in America. Lively political discussion from a progressive perspective, hosted by MOMocrats Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills.
