Former NYC Public Advocate and Nader’s Raider Mark Green engages Ralph in a lively debate over Hillary Clinton and the difference between a politician versus an advocate. We also delve into Israeli Prime Minister’s address to Congress and the letter to Iran signed by forty-seven Republicans. We also discuss those that the economic upturn have left behind in Ohio.
We talk to peace activist and war tax resister, Frances Crowe, about her memoir Frances Crowe: Finding My Radical Soul and how she’s been arrested for civil disobedience more times than she can remember. Ralph also fills us in on the mess in Libya, tells us about how United Airlines employees are getting screwed, and we answer more listener questions.
We talk to one of Ralph’s favorite Republicans, attorney Bruce Fein, about the constitution and how Bush, Cheney, Obama, and Hillary Clinton could be tried as war criminals. Ralph actually has some praise for the NFL during the Super Bowl and answers a slew of listener Facebook questions.
This week, Ralph talks to old friend and climate crusader, S. David Freeman, about how we can get off of fossil fuels and make all of our power renewable. We ask Ralph to score Eric Holder’s tenure as attorney general. And Ralph sees new hope for Afghanistan because a genuine progressive has just been elected president.
In a wide ranging discussion, Ralph talks about “spoilers,” the revolving door, tired truckers, whistle blowers, the neocons who have no shame about the Iraq War, and also outlines how the environmental movement could be far more effective.
