In today’s show I discuss project redmap and the fairly recent history of some of the worst gerrymandering in the country.
So called “purple” or swing states of North Carolina, Wisconsin and Ohio have gone from trending blue to reliably red.
How did it happen? Take a listen:

In today’s episode we finish our conversation on Elizabeth Warren and move directly into other prominent and not so prominent 2020 candidates on the Democratic side.
The reports on some of the candidates leads me to believe the battle on the left is going to be over Wall Street and money. Listen here:

This is is the first episode of 2019 and we begin with the partial government shutdown over “The Wall”.
As of this episode, the House passed the Senate bill that was rejected by the previous Congress under Paul Ryan.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has refused to put it to vote saying President of The United States will not sign it.
Nancy Pelosi has called the wall an immorality.
I give my take on the wall in the episode below.

Denise from California calls in to go over the results of the 2018 midterms election.
This extended episode was recorded last night, but news keeps breaking on these races every day.
As we all know by now, democrats did not have quite the blue wave hoped for, but did well none the less.

This is a continuation of our 2018 election coverage.
We begin with my opinion that the national news media may have blown it by not reporting about an alleged racist man’s attempt to enter a church before shooting and killing two African Americans at a Kroger supermarket in Kentucky.
Would houses of worship been on high alert if they’d known?
Then I go on a bit of a tear regarding Jake Tapper’s “both sides” argument on last week’s
State of the Union .

Welcome to season two of The World As I Like It To Be.
This is the first blog of the second season and we are on our third episode (can you believe it??).
But these special episode are our midterm 2018 election coverage.
I am once again joined by good friend and justice Democrat Denise from California.
While I normally look to keep the news of the day out of this coverage, but I could not help but start off this episode with several tragic stories from last week.
Fifteen bombs were allegedly put through the US postal service
by a Trump fan Cesar Sayoc.

As the president continues to attack the New York Times and Congress in tweets
and rage at campaign rallies, Democrats fight for progressive values in the Senate and all over the country.

The blue wave is coming.
It was primary day in Massachusetts yesterday and another political earthquake shook the Democratic party.
Ten term democratic Congressman Mike Capuano
was unseated by 44 year old Boston city council woman Ayanna Pressley.
The double digit victory is a political stunner like AOC’s in New York (although
some may disagree).
In today’s show we will be talking, in part, about last week’s primaries with Denise from California.
