A True American Hero

Not like all those other phony propped up ones the corporate dominated history books and American Exceptionalism teachers talk about. The only true progressive thinker on the American political scene with deeds to back up his words. If you want to know what is really going on in America, this podcast, plus The Black Agenda Report and The Real News Network are must reads and/or must listens but start with this one first. The only mild criticism for Ralph is that in his passionate pleas for Americans to wake up to what's really going on, he can talk over his guests sometimes. Every week I listen and get mad about something that we all should be mad about.
