September 13, 2013

Cliff Schecter: explained the ongoing implosion of the Republican Party, the House GOP strategy for more spending cuts, why Ted Cruz praising Jesse Helms should be treated the sam way Trent Lott praising Strom Thurmond, how the Bill De Blasio wins means a resurgence of an economically progressive left, why we are leaving the age of Reagan and Clinton behind, why younger voters are so economically left wing and how Clinton and Obama governed from the right.

Ross Brockely, talked about what he was growing on his farm in Nebraska, what organic farm techniques Brockely is using, why Brockely was shooting a new movie in Gabon and he pushed the 9/11 conspiracy movie War By Deception and what Brockely is reading and thinking about.

On The Better Half: the recession era and the millennials distrust of corporate power, General Petraeus met with protests at CUNY college and your calls and IMs.
