10/2 Nan Aron, Will the Supreme Court Kill Civil Rights?

October 2, 2012

Nan Aron, President of the Alliance for Justice explained why the next Supreme Court term matters so much, the future of affirmative action and the voting rights act and Justice Robert’s troubling history of hostility to civil rights. How the Supreme Courts decisions on CitizensUnited and the Affordable Care have reminded people of the Court’s power and the broader implications of the Roberts Courts strikingly pro corporate stance.

On The Better Half: Noam Chomsky on who he will be voting for and why, free medical clinics in LA lead to overnight waits, Libertarians are creating a feudal paradise in Honduras, Scott Brown slips up in a major way in his last debate with Elizabeth Warren and Sam does his Masshole voice. Also Mayor Bloomberg says something awful no matter what way you interpret it.
