  • Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On the last Carson's Corner on 2014, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Jill Dalton to the show to discuss the biggest political events of 2014. Dalton, who is the author of the eBook, "Is It Fascism Yet ?", has been writing for non-corporate media outlets, such as Dandelion Salad, OpEdNews, RSN, NationofChange, for many years. Jill has been one of the few reporters who have questioned whether or not voting really matters in America.


    Will 2015 be a year marked by the billionaire ruling class or will the workers continue to rise up in the face of the deteriorating conditions of capitalism?  Will elections and the state continue to lose legitimacy in the eyes of the working class? Tune in to hear a discussion you will hear few places elsewhere.


    Here is Jill Dalton’s bio: Jill Dalton is a writer/actress/army brat/activist/truth teller. She can be seen in and consulted for William Hurt on the HBO film, Too Big To Fail, about the global financial meltdown. Her articles have appeared @ Dandelion Salad, OpEdNews, RSN, NationofChange. Her eBook, Is It Fascism Yet? is available on amazon.com. Her play, Collateral Damage, was a semi finalist at the 2014 O’Neill Playwrights Conference.

    in Politics

    Join Tom English; musician, artist and progressive activist as we discuss the upcoming election day, 2014.


    Here's what he had to say during a recent OpEdNews interview:


    During the Dennis Kucinich Campaign is when I first started performing my songs. Lila Garrett was in the campaign and I sang for her “Democrats Are Stupid When They Don’t Vote, And Republicans Are Stupid When They Do” and she howled with laughter and asked me to sing it at a fundraiser and it became a regular thing. It was a hard campaign. Both of them.To me, it all feels like one. To see how, at the end, Obama and Hillary were both falling over each other to “prove” who was more passionately against the war, and Dennis was  sitting there able to honestly say “ I was against the war before it started, and p.s. Obama, I never voted to fund it ten times”. People say we can’t elect a progressive president but we have to remember that, although people who read and think could see right through Obama, he was marketed very, very effectively to appeal to a person who does not like war and who has compassion. Turned out, granted, clearly not true, but he was, in fact, presented as a progressive because that is what people really desire.


    So, I’ve lived in a lot of different times, at this point, and I think now is a good time. I think a whole majority of us are coming to our senses.There’s a lot of momentum on problem things, but it’s interesting how some good things come quick!

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates!!

    in Politics Progressive

    It has been over one month now that the Election Boycott Advocates have been appearing on Carson's Corner, and with each week, the message is getting louder. More and more websites are covering the Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner, as it is the only place where this sort of resistance is taking place. Last week, Election Boycott Advocates welcomed Jeff Howard, occupier, activist and Obama supporter to the show, and Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, and Thomas Baldwin, election boycott advocate and blogger.  What ensued was a passionate debate/discussion that didn't tear the parties apart, but rather solidified the parties around the notion of an ongoing debate and the dire need for change. This week will be no different, as hosts Bob Carson and Christopher Alan Driscoll welcome the same panel, Jeff Howard, Thomas Baldwin, and Harry Cason to the show, plus a new panelist, Jill Dalton.


    Here is Jill Dalton's bio:  Jill Dalton is a writer/actress/army brat/activist/truth teller. She can be seen in and consulted for William Hurt on the HBO film, Too Big To Fail, about the global financial meltdown. Her articles have appeared @ Dandelion Salad, OpEdNews, RSN, NationofChange. Her eBook, Is It Fascism Yet? is available on amazon.com. Her play, Collateral Damage, was a semi finalist at the 2014 O’Neill Playwrights Conference.
