PNN Discusses Food, Water and the Bill of Rights
The issues raised in the conflicts that arise from the casual use of dangerous pesticides and hormones in our food concern more and more people today. We have invited several interesting guests to discuss the food and water safety issues facing consumers today.
We have a special report on the status of the NDAA trial at the 2nd Circuit. We have one of the plaintiffs, Ms. Tangerine Bolen of RevolutionTruth.org who will also discuss her work on the Pvt Manning case and the issues raised by the attacks on Wikleaks's Julian Assange. TUNE IN LIVE 7PM Eastern, or anytime (all shows are stored and are available for later listening)
How about a little more democracy in our democratic party?
Once again will the boys and girls, the “players” go back behind the concrete doors, and select another republican lite to run for governor?
Or worse yet some re-tred X-republican who has suddenly grown ANGELIC DEMOCRATIC WINGS and with a full change of heart, no – no – NOT OPPORTUNISM, perish the thought, develop a sudden fever to assist the people. After of course the obligatory bow and scrape toward the USUAL CORPORATE SUSPECTS? Passing through the too too narrow gate of corporate support and party poobahs!
If so, you haven't been paying attention, to the last hundred years of US policy in the Middle East.
Since our glorious participation in the "Great" War, you remember your Grandfather's War.
The one ostensibly launched by the assassination of the Grand Duke in Sarajevo.
Come on you remember, the one enthusiasts called "The War to End all Wars".
It was a great PR campaign, Edward Bernays molder of public opinion was quite proud of that little bit of sloganeering.
It could only be the thoughtless who reject this author's logic as horsing around; I say neigh! I say she hardly goes far enough when it comes to the mass murder of sacred ejaculate and eggs lost in the sacrilege that is menstruation. Granted each sperm and each egg contains but half of the genetic material necessary for a human, so I suggest that every two sperms and every two eggs should be counted as one virtual human.
Our Progressive Caucus, is sending some suggestions on to the Democratic Party. We were asked for feedback. I agreed wholeheartedly with the suggestions and the language. I endorsed them fully. I added in that given that the chair of the Platform Committee was Mayor Cory Booker, I said it was important that we weigh in. I characterized Mayor Booker, this way:
" RE Mayor Cory Booker...
Remember he complained about the attacks on the poor bankers, and said, that Wall Street is being "picked on". It made him sick!
But as the old saying goes... yet Cory Booker is an honorable man... and a hero! "
(warning satire ahead)
Pity, oops don't pity, its not a republican virtue, the single mother, the struggling family, the burdensome sickly elder. Who do they think they are, these freeloaders. Not pulling their own weight in todays AMERICAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.
Roots of American Progressivism arise from the corruption of the post civil era civil governance and the excesses of the Industrial Revolutions. Abolitionists, Women Rights Advocates and Labor Organizers pulled together for more responsive governance. Progressives at the turn of the century were more concerned with participation and access than in a strictly economic critique. So, no, Progressivism, new or old, has nothing to do with the theories or the failed practices associate with Marx and Engels.
