This week’s show
My guest today is Sally Swisher of the “Don’t Do Koch” campaign, which kicks off April 1st. No, its NOT too late to get involved, the campaign lasts all month.
By handing out "Don’t Do Koch flyers" (that look like Penny Savers) at supermarkets that sell Koch Brothers products, active citizens like you across the U.S. are offering fellow shoppers and fellow Americans the opportunity to buy alternative products instead. With this information in hand, we can avoid spending our hard-earned dollars on products that enrich these infamous oil barons who symbolize partisanship, greed, injustice, and the corrupting influence of money in politics.
This week was an eventful week. This week the Center For Investigative Reporting released a report that details the collapse of quickly providing benefits to veterans under President Obama. Not much was made of the report in the mainstream media. Jon Stewart did a scathing monologue on the issue that got my attention.
As I stated in the blog post I wrote on this, I am ashamed that I have not spoken more on this issue, every American should be ashamed that we have not done more for our veterans, and President Obama must take responsibility for at minimum not using his bully pulpit to get emergency funding to ensure this is resolved.
The Supreme Court debated whether DOMA is constitutional as well as whether California’s Proposition 8 is constitutional. I did not write any blog posts on these cases, however I have written many a few months back on this issue that I will include in my list of blog posts below.
Please call in and let us talk about it.
