    Supreme Court open for business, Tea Party could nix Senate takeover, & more...

    in Politics Conservative

    A sampling of topics to be discussed today. Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" and share your thoughts on these topics and more....


    The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will open its doors for business today. SCOTUS will be hearing cases that involve religion vs employers, drawing of political districts, passports, (un)legal search and seizures, posting threats on social media(ie Facebook), and perhaps the most anticipated hearing of Gay Marriage. 


    Could the actions of the Tea Party destroy the GOP's chance to take control of the US Senate? 


    ACLU anger many with comment saying Christians are just as extreme as ISIS. 


    Democrats convert to "The Dark Side" and are sucking up huge sums of SuperPAC Funds as they panic over mid-term elections.


    Showtime 8AM-10AM EST.  Hope we meet up "In the Pickle Barrel".

    Not Your Grandmother's May Day - Lunch with Louden 5/1/14

    in Politics

    The meaning of May Day has evolved over time.




    Initially May Day was the Festival of Flora and a time for young people to find their future spouses



    Late 1800s - workers organized to improve inhumane working conditions



    Early 1900s - Russians (and later Soviets) began a militiaristic May Day in 1917 to celebrate the successful worker’s revolution



    1950s - McCarthy-era fear of communism made May Day celebrations by workers “unpopular”



    Today - 100s of rallies are scheduled around the world, including major US cities, to support workers’ rights, immigration issues, and protest the political corruption that keeps worker / business stress alive



    "MAYDAY" is the call for help TODAY from Rootstrikers to create a SuperPAC to fund candidates who will remove corrupting money from politics  http://www.MayOne.us




    They used to lock us in. Now they lock us out. And they use law and regulation (or the removal of law and regulation) to make it so.


    We assert that today, just as was the case in the late 1800s, it is the unhealthy relationship between our elected and their funders that allow for and maintain an excessively negative impact on American employees and an excessivly positive impact on global corporation directors, officers, and shareholders.


    Are you participating in any May Day activities today? Do you have anything to add to the abreviated May Day timeline? Do you believe that law and regulation can help or hinder the welbeing of American workers? Call in!

    What Impact Did SuperPACS Really Have? -The Middle Ground

    in Politics Progressive

     
     
    $650 million. That's what the SuperPACs spent hoping to buy for their benefactors the privilege of writing our nation's laws. Call (646) 929-2496 at 8 pm ET tonight and let us know how you feel about that.   Sheldon Adelson became famous for bragging he would spend $100 million to buy himself a Justice Department that wouldn't investigate him. But he not only lost in the presidential race, he lost every race he invested in. When asked if the money was well spent, Adelson said, "Without it, the race wouldn't have been as close."  He's right.   Karl Rove and his two groups spent $180 million on ads to oust Obama. And yet Romney went down to defeat while his party lost ground in the Senate and no less than ten teapartiers lost their bids for Congress.   However, the fact that the Super-PACs were mostly unsuccessful does NOT mean that we don't need to counter them.  What we got last week was a warped version of our democracy, skewed toward the interests of the super-rich. The Congress that will be sworn in will be no less corrupt than the one that is leaving. In other words, we still have work to do.  Presented by Coffee Party USA, "The Middle Ground" is co-hosted by award-winning filmmaker Eric Byler and political author Michael Charney, the show airs every Tuesday 8-9 PM EST/5-6 PM PST.

    Warren-Brown, Sandy's Election Impact, Florida, $6 Billion

    in News

    A recent poll put out by the Boston Globe and the University of New Hampshire shows the race between incumbent Senator Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to be in a dead heat. Both candidates remain popular and, while some other polls appear to give Warren an edge in heavily Democratic Massachusetts, it’s clearly still a tossup. We talk to Frank Phillips, State House Bureau Chief for the Boston Globe.
    Hurricane Sandy may have moved on, but it’s impact will likely be felt for some time to come. More than 7 million people remain without power, New York trains are flooded and businesses along the northeast are still closed. The economic impact is yet to be determined, but so is the impact on the election just days away. We talk with Michael Binder, Professor of Political Science at the University of Florida about what impact it might have. Meanwhile we take advantage of Prof. Binder’s knowledge of Florida politics to dissect where this key swing state stands in the upcoming election.
    Both the campaigns for president, that of the incumbent Barack Obama and his Republican Mitt Romney are likely to exceed $1 billion each, record setting spending by candidates for president. Add SuperPAC spending and other third-party money, and some estimates put the cost of this election at $6 billion, well exceeding the record set only four years ago by the 2008 election. We talk to Tim Farnam, Political Reporter for the Washington Post where he specializes in campaign finance.
