    Politics Done Right - We must have open dialogue on difficult issues

    in Politics Progressive

    This week I stepped into it big time. I made the following post on the Coffee Party USA Facebook page.


    The reaction was mostly negative towards the post. I received threats by message and emails. What did I do wrong? I had the gall to call out Bill Maher using a nuanced and to some extent condescending tone to point out why his rigid stance on Muslims was neither correct or helpful. Since the person that killed the three students claimed he was an atheist I was trying to see if empathy would reign base on how some would attempt to vilify all atheists for the act.


    The reaction was to make no attempt to understand that I was on the side of most that were slamming me with the expectation that there would be some introspection. Anyway, this is what we will discuss on Politics Done Right today.

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - Enslaved by economic system of a dependent wealthy

    in Politics Progressive

    We hear a lot about income inequality and wealth disparity. We all know it yet we don't seem engaged likely because many think making a change is impossible. When we unchain our minds we will. We get it done by learning. We get it done by sharing what we learn. We get it done by usurping a wealthy centric economic system.


    The new Republican buzzword to counter middle-class economics proposed by President Obama is envy economics. One can be sure that they tested the phrase. Today we discuss how to unchain ourselves from our enslavement to the wealthy.

    Ballot Access and the unconstitutional behavior of Democrats and Republicans


    ----


    Now that Labor Day has passed we are officially in Election Season.  The Congressional Midterms and the various state elections are upon us.  Yet independents and candidates from the Green Party, the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party are battling to for ballot access.  The Democrats in Illinois have eliminated the Green Party for the Ballot.  The Democrat and Republicans have successfully eliminated any alternative party candidates and independents in New Jersey.  Republicans in Illinois have successfully eliminated the Constitution Party in Illinois and they have sued Libertarian Party State Senate Candidate Gigi Bowman in New York to remove her from the ballot.  The Green Party has sued in Illinois.  All over the country the ballot access continues and the Democrats and the Republicans just don't want to let anyone else play in sandbox.  Guest hosting on Politics Done is Bobby Rodrigo and he will have as one of his guests The Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Georgia Doug Craig to offer his expertise on the ballot access struggles faced by anyone who is not a Democrat or Republican.  Please join us.

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - Journalist Rula Jebreal discusses media bias

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show  
    July 28th, 2014


    Journalist Rula Jebreal discusses media bias in Palestinian-Israeli Conflict


    Rula Jebreal will be the featured guest on Politics Done Right. Rula Jebreal is a journalist, a commentator, and author of Miral, a novel translated into 15 languages, that sold millions of copiesworldwide and a film that was the first ever premiered in the UN General Assembly Hall. She also authored the International Fince Europa Award winning book The Bride of Aswan that was translated into 5 languages. Her third book, Rejected is a non-fiction about immigration in Europe. She wrote and produced the film Permesso di Soggiorno about the death penalty in China, the United States, and Iran during the UN debate on the death penalty in 2008.


    Jebreal is the brave journalist that had the spine to go into a mainstream media studio, an MSNBC studio and speak the truth at her own peril. While concurrently writing an article on the refugee crisis on the Texas border and listening to Ronan Farrow Daily on MSNBC, I listened somewhat inattentively as Rula Jebreal gave a spirited narrative on the biased coverage given to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I had not heard such a brave defense and pushback on MSNBC or on any other network. I immediately stopped what I was doing, recorded the interview, and edited it for Internet consumption. I knew the traditional mainstream media would attempt to make it a one day story. The blogosphere would not.

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - Michael Brown Grand Jury / Lawrence Lessig

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show 
    Lawrence Lessig SuperPAC failure & Michael Brown Grand Jury
    November 24th, 2014


    Today we discuss Lawrence Lessig’s epic fail by attempting to use the same tactics of the Plutocracy to get money out of politics. He wasted north of ten millions dollars that could have been better spent in a movement.


    We will talk about Michael Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson. We will explore why the governor of Missouri believed he needed to declare a state of emergency. It likely has to do with the differences in policing and reporting of aggrieved communities versus other communities.

    Politics Done Right - What does middle-class economics really mean?

    in Politics

    The President has been on a tear lately. He is talking about what likely he would like his ultimate legacy to be, middle-class economics. What exactly is middle-class economics?


    Middle-class economics is rather simple. It is based on simple mathematics. It is based on fairness. It is based on creating a society where all have their basic needs met. It is about equal access to success.


    What are your thoughts? Let’s  talk. I will also be following our hash-tag#PoliticsDoneRight on Twitter. Give me a call.

    Politics Done Right on KPFT - The politics of religion

    in Politics Progressive

    This week’s show  
    June 30th, 2014


    The politics of religion


    I attended the Texas Democratic Convention this weekend. The entire convention was inspiring and filled with energy. I spoke to a woman, an ordained minister who placed religion, politics, policy, and compassion for fellow human beings into context. Maybe the Supreme Court should listen to her after what they did today. Maybe they need to realize that religion has no place in business.


    Today is a day that will live in infamy. Everyone knows that the Supreme Court over the years have given corporations progressively more and more human rights. Today the corporation was also given the ability to have a religion.


    The Supreme Court in ruling on the side of Hobby Lobby has done two things. It has declared war on women’s rights from the highest court of the land. It has codified into its interpretation of the law that companies like people can go to church. Maybe they will find some way to lock corporations up, throw them in a jail cell when they misbehave.


    But you know what? Of more concern is that the Supreme Court has made corporations people with a license to discriminate. They are people with the right to control women. They have authorized a war on women.
