Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Tune in Monday 9:00 PM on KPFT 90.1 FM (Houston Area) Live stream: http://KPFT.org (Entire USA) - Podcasts: Call (713) 526-5738 to talk to me on air. This week’s show  July 21th, 2014 Return to moral policies I spent Wednesday through Sunday at Netroots Nation 2014 in Detroit Michigan. It was a wonderful experience. It was a learning experience. The Netroots Nation convention is the amalgamation of Liberal bloggers from throughout the country. It is a place where many politicians go to schmooze with Liberal bloggers with the expectation of getting coverage and getting their message out. Most importantly it is a convention for bloggers that communicate electronically to meet in the flesh, to party, to exchange ideas, to plan, and to network in order to form cooperating groups, actions, and alliances. This Netroots Nation convention was special. It was held in a city held hostage by the American Plutocracy. It was held in a city where a group … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Tune in Monday 9:00 PM on KPFT 90.1 FM (Houston Area) Live stream: http://KPFT.org (Entire USA) - Podcasts: Call (713) 526-5738 to talk to me on air. This week’s show  July 14th, 2014 A suit & immigration, a failed GOP Last week all around was a tough week politically. Political dysfunction remained paramount. Today’s program will not entertain false equivalences. The current political dysfunction for all practical purposes is one sided. Republicans decided that they were going to live up to what has become their tenet. And what is their tenet? Their tenet is that government does not work. They are doing a good job in ensuring  it does not work. We will discuss two issues. The first will be Congress’ suit against the President. The second will be the immigration/refuge emergency on the US - Mexico border. Today’s guest will be Sarah Slamen. She will appear later in the show after she completes her weekly grassroots call. Who is Sarah … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live. Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show July 12th, 2014 This week while writing a blog post I was sort of listening to MSNBC. An interview about the water shutoffs in Detroit Michigan ensued. I listened a bit more attentively. I then heard the Detroit reporter, Hank Winchester, say about the people in Detroit, “But there are other people and this is where it gets controversial who simply don’t want to pay the water bill, who’d rather spend money on cable.” At that point I dropped the blog I was writing, recorded the interview, processed it, and then blogged about it. The blog post titled “Detroit activist slams reporter on air for misreporting reasons for water shutoff to thousands ” went viral. Hank Winchester sent me an email asking me why I shortened the video. That was a silly question coming from a reporter. It was shortened without removing any context like any good … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right on KPFT 90.1 FM – America can afford Medicare for all – Monday 9 PM CST

This week’s show  July 7th, 2014 America can afford Medicare for all Last week while performing my engineering duties on KPFT’s Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig, a rather disturbing call came from a caller. The caller was not a bad person. The caller was not ill willed. The caller simply bought into the tenet that the mythical free market can solve all of America and the world’s problems. I do not mind folks having different ideological beliefs in most segments of our economy. In fact it may even be a great experiment to show what works effectively. Where these ideologies cause pain, financial distress, or deaths unnecessarily to our fellow human beings, to our fellow Americans, one should not leave it up to some unseen, unknown, or so far failed market. When the caller implied that morality … [Read more...]

Politics Done Right on Coffee Party Radio – Hobby Lobby Decision Should Scare Us All Sat 12-1PM CST

Politics Done Right with Egberto Willies Saturday 12:00 Noon Central Call (646) 929-2495 to talk to me live. Stream Live: - Podcast: This week’€™s show July 5th, 2014 I had a great 4th of July. The Kingwood Area Democrats (KAD) worked on our float all week and it paid off. We won best traditional float. Check it out here. I spent a lot of time speaking to some of my Tea Party friends from the booth and realized there is a lot of work to be done. It made my Sunday front page article at DailyKOS that more prescient, “Being an American citizen is complicated.” Coffee Party USA member Mindy Smoak sent me an essay/article she wrote after the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case debacle. “As a Coffee Party member, I am just sharing my opinion and voice,” Mindy Smoak said, “hoping it can provide some thought and ideas.” I get a lot of request from Coffee Party USA members and many writers at large to publish pieces on my blog. I rarely do for several reasons. Mindy Smoak did not ask that her … [Read more...]

This week’s show  June 30th, 2014 The politics of religion I attended the Texas Democratic Convention this weekend. The entire convention was inspiring and filled with energy. I spoke to a woman, an ordained minister who placed religion, politics, policy, and compassion for fellow human beings into context. Maybe the Supreme Court should listen to her after what they did today. Maybe they need to realize that religion has no place in business. Today is a day that will live in infamy. Everyone knows that the Supreme Court over the years have given corporations progressively more and more human rights. Today the corporation was also given the ability to have a religion. The Supreme Court in ruling on the side of Hobby Lobby has done two things. It has declared war on women’s rights from the highest … [Read more...]

Bobby Rodrigo was kind enough to step in for me this week. Anyone who knows Bobby Rodrigo knows he does not like any of our current major political parties. He made sure to give me a civil Coffee Party like ribbing about my full involvement with the Democratic Party. But that’s is what Coffee Party USA is all about. It is about being able to work together, like each other even if we are at opposite ends of the spectrum or have any types of disagreements. Bobby Rodrigo embodies that. Here is the Bobby’s show. Seeding Community Change Becoming an entrepreneur, starting a business, is one of the most enduring and powerful myths in out culture. Captains of Industry are lauded as dacoits of society and too often … [Read more...]

No more war in Iraq? Could this be true? Could there really be some sort of consensus building between the Left and the Right? Folks that seems to be the case. And this week’s hero is none other than Fox News’ Megyn Kelly who showed a semblance of journalism in spurts. More so than the “Liberal Media” she asked a few tough questions  to several neocons including Vice-President Dick Chaney. Let’s talk about Iraq today.
