    The Morning Edge This has been a historic week for all of us. We were victorious

    in Politics Progressive

    Hosted by Augi Schmitz and Mitch Mallett.  Broadcast on 1490AM Tampa Bay and here on BlofTalkradio.


    This past weeks Supreme Court decision was a monumental moment in American history, as it guaranteed the right for gays and lesbians to get married and established full marriage equality.

    "This has been a historic week for all of us. We were victorious in the biggest civil rights battle in my generation's history to date - now our LGBT friends and family can finally marry the person they love in all 50 states. A flag that represents arguably the most tragic period in our nation's history is coming down all across the South and big corporations are refusing to sell this symbol of hatred. And, people like me were allowed to keep the healthcare we desperately need and deserve. It is weeks like this that make me proud to be an American! How did this week make you feel?"


    "How did the two parties switch places regarding the South, white supremacy, and civil rights? In Lincoln’s day, a radical Republican was an abolitionist, and when blacks did get the vote, they almost unanimously voted Republican. Today, the archetypal Republican is a Southern white, and blacks are almost all Democrats. How did American politics get from there to here?"

    Mr. Netanyahu Views on Iran, US and Obama and his speech in Congress

    in Politics Progressive

    GENEVA — Iranian and American officials ended a round of high-level nuclear talks here on Monday considering a proposal that would strictly limit, for at least 10 years, Iran’s ability to produce nuclear material, but gradually ease restrictions on Tehran in the final years of any deal.


    Mr. Netanyahu, in a dramatic speech in September 2012 during which he drew a red line across a cartoon bomb, said at the time that Iran was “well into the second stage” of enriching uranium and could complete the final stage “by next spring, at most by next summer.”

    “When the reactor begins operation, production of plutonium will begin at a quantity sufficient to produce one bomb a year, but there will be no use for the weapons as long as there is no nuclear fuel reprocessing plant,” said the six-page document. “Bottom line: though Iran at this stage is not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons, it is working to close gaps in areas that appear legitimate, such as enrichment, reactors, which will reduce the time required to produce weapons from the time the instruction is actually given.”.
