Socialism vs Capitalism

The conservative political action conference aka CPAC was held last week.  Some Republicans were horrified by the behavior of the head of the party. 

But for the most part, Republicans were eating up everything Donald Trump was serving.

And the enemy of America has been exposed! Her name is socialism!!!

Vox did a full breakdown of the bizarre antics of the president and on today’s show Denise and I do a breakdown of our own.

Medicare for more reparations and cohen

Medicare for more and what about reparations?

On today’ episode Denise from California and I continue our discussion on healthcare.  There are many, many different proposals being floated by democrats to deal with the problem of healthcare in America.  At the top of the list is Bernie Sander’s Medicare for All proposal.

While in the minority, Democrats were all in on a single payer plan like Medicare for all.  But recent reports seem to indicate leading democrats do not support the plan

What appears to be gaining traction is a medicare for more plan which would be an amalgam of different popular plans.  One program being pushed by a liberal progressive senator Sherrod Brown is Medicare 55/65.

What is going on in the senate is what the senate was made for.  Vigorous debate.

This is why Jefferson, according to legend, called it the “cooling saucer” of our democracy.

are republicans winning in the house?

On today’s show we discuss the winning strategies Republicans are using against Democrats in the House.  Even tho the GOP is in the minority, they are using an “arcane” house rule called a motion to recomitt to slow down the legislative process and for another “bite at the apple” on legislation.

In a less formal sense, it gives Republicans a chance to force new and vulnerable Democrats in red and purple districts, to take tough votes.  Some of those votes may be too radical for the constituency of their districts.

This would give a Republican challenger a chance to paint the Democrat as left wing and out of touch.  Surprisingly the maneuver has been so effective, it is reported that Pelosi may get rid of the rule.

S2E24: Oscars in review

Last night was the 91st Oscars awards telecast and today we give our take on the award ceremony which was beset by both forced and unforced errors leading up to the airdate.

For the list of winners check out the roundup here.

The reviews were mostly positive given most people tuning in were probably aware of the controversies well beforehand.

On today’s show Denise from California and I discuss the show, the winners, losers and two of our favorites Marvel’s Black Panther and Spike Lee’s Blackklansmen.

S2E23: Our review cory booker for 2020 and freshmen democrats a problem??

On today’s show we do a deep dive on Cory Booker, the senator from New Jersey running for President in 2020, and disturbing new news pertaining to the House Democrats. 

But there is a ton of news to get through today and we begin with breaking new development on the boarder wall. 

President Trump has done what many call unthinkable.  Through executive action, Trump plans to divert funds from the treasury department and homeland security to build his wall on the southern border.  

This would give the commander in chief 8 billion for 234 miles of wall.

S2E22: Our review warren and Klobuchar for 2020

On today’s show, Denise from California and I continue talking about the 2020 candidates and we revisit ELIZABETH WARREN and discuss AMY KLOBISHAR.

When it comes to Warren, Denise and I both seem to agree she is the favored from both of us.

I believe she is prone to gaffs and I think the President smells blood in the water when it comes to her.

S2E21: Our review Tulsi Gabbard and pete Buttigieg for 2020

The field for 2020 on the democratic side is beginning to take shape.  Over the weekend Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts  and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota made it official.

On today’s show, and all this week, we will be talking about the biggest names to enter the race for the Presidency in 2020 like TULSI GABBARD AND PETE BUTTIGIEG .  

But we begin with last week’s State of the Union address. Surprisingly, there was no talk of the looming threat of global warming or solutions to the real everyday threat of gun violence or our broken healthcare system  

I note: the best thing Barack Obama did with the Affordable Care Act, was create a “floor” for democrats to fight from, even as Republicans fight back on a state level.

S2E20: USA Today bombshell and la teachers strike

Today show we continue where we left off, talking 2020 candidates for President on the democratic side.

But I want to begin with a remarkable article in today’s USA Today. The article, entitled “Taken”, is an in depth report on a controversial legal procedure in which police take assets, usually money, from citizens and refuse to give it back.
