Our post ABC News 2020 Democratic debate review is now complete. Denise from California and I have watched the debate and extracted the most important moments and analyzed them from a political point of view.
Yesterday was the debate over guns, Trump tariffs and Afghanistan policy. In this final debate episode we analyze the disturbing statements made by Joe Biden.
The former vice president was confronted with past statements he made on race. I want to remind listeners and readers of this blog that we have discussed racism here on a number of occasions as well as on the podcast.
We’ve been here before
You can go back as far as this post from last year where we discuss how the New York City Police Department, by accident, developed sensitivity training.
Then we discussed the four P’s of racism where I provide links to the profound documentary “The Eye Of The Storm” here.
This is the last podcast for the pre ABC News 2020 Democratic debate. The debate will air for three hours this Thursday and we at The World As I Like It To Be podcast will be watching from 8 to 11pm est.
Expect to find the post debate podcast over the weekend
In today’s extra long, jam packed episode we focus on the
top issues each candidate is running on and if it is a winning or losing
With me is Denise from California.
The top three are the final three in our podcast review. They are Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.
In our previous blog we discussed Common Cause v Lewis, one of the most important cases for Democrats as 2020 approaches.
As a brief recap, North Carolina’s Republican Party in 2017 drew district maps in order to ensure they held political power in every election no matter how many votes were casted for the opposing party.
This episode of American Swap articulates the problem
The Democrats appealed to the federal courts sided with them, striking down the 2017 maps. The Republicans appealed to the US Supreme Court.
In the news for the past two or more weeks are stories of acts of gun violence the country is finally ready to call domestic terror. Domestic terror with guns is the focus of our podcast, and terror using a dirty bomb is the focus of this blog.
Candidates on the debate stage have focused primary on
issues like immigration and heath care, the news is forcing the focus on
Usually coupled with racism, as discussed in our
last episode, on this episode we are looking at gun violence cause by a variety
of other factors.
#theworldasilike is a liberal podcast, but the issues we address should not be. Liberal or conservative everything we discuss in this podcast and blog should concern all Americans.
Today’s podcast is all about the changes happening on the state level (not related to gerrymandering) and the effects of white supremacy. And in our blog we discuss the economy and the coming recession.
The behavior by the president shows his leaning toward white
nationalism. In just a tweet today, he
called on a long prison sentence for a black man in Philadelphia who wounded a number
of cops with an AR 15 riffle.
It was a surprising statement given the president has not been as harsh on the white 20 year old who actually killed people in El Paso, TX. Nor has he called made any more statements on gun control.
On today’s The World As I Like It To Be, we take on conservative and liberal in this podcast. And will be exploring the items to look for in the lead up to the election in 2020.
We focused on the differences between liberal Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on yesterday’s podcast. Just how far are progressive Democrats willing to go to address the issues that plague this nation?
In this episode we continue the conversation including other issues driving the democratic party, this time between moderates and liberals.
Then, we look at the other side of the fence and talk about the issues the Republicans have.
Issues, having less to do with Trump, but more about party loyalty and, what I believe is the main problem, disgust with the increase of spending.
