3/6 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Isabel Gillies

March 6, 2015

Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the systemic and grotesque racism of the Ferguson Police Department. What is a “manner of walking” arrest? How many Ferguson’s across the country are there? Unequal justice in the United States. The Ferguson PD criminal racket. The Republicans cave on Department of Homeland Security funding. The Democrats finally showing spine? How to defeat new bad trade deals. How to convince the Right to oppose the TPP. Rahm Emanuel is so afraid of losing his race for reelection as Chicago’s Mayor that he is now pretending to be a good person. Also why did the Supreme Court take King V Burwell now?

Isabel Gillies explains the next book she is working is working on. Why Sam is frustrated by House of Cards. Are kids more fun the older they get? Isabel is bad at video games but great as a mom. Isabel says we should all watch Selma. Why Boyhood lost to Birdman. And we should also watch the documentary Virunga.

The economy keeps adding jobs but wages are still down. Does President Obama want to use the Keystone Pipeline for something else? Right Wing Mandela comments on 50 Shades of Grey.
