The progressive warrior, Bob Carson, is back with another edition of Carson's Corner in conjunction with the Commons Project Network. Baseball great, Hank Aaron, recently compared the Tea Party to the KKK. Aaron's comments have empirical backing, as Paul Street and Anthony Diamaggio have taken an empirical look into the Tea Party. Bob will discuss this, plus, The Case For Socialism by Alan Maas gives a refreshing critique of capitalism and defense of socialism.
In addition, Congress refuses to extend long-term unemployment benefits. What does this say about our democracy?
