I describe the concepts behind the news of the day and give my verdicts on the issues making news.
Politicians Don’t Care About Their Grandchildren
The verdict for this episode is: the deficit of the United States doesn't matter.
I discuss how each president for the last 92 years with the exception of Clinton has added to the deficit. I also show how the drivers of deficits are military spending and tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.
House Progressives Could Choose the Speaker
The verdict for this episode is: since they are Democrats, House progressives will not use the power they have.
In this episode, I discuss how House progressives could remove Pelosi choose the next speaker, and get real benefits for using their power to choose the next speaker.
I also discuss why this option is much better than forcing a vote on Medicare for All.
The Left Needs a McConnell
The verdict for this episode is: no one in Congress is really fighting for the people.
In this episode, I discuss how no one on the left fights with the skill and determination as McConnell. Yes, he is unethical and immoral. But he delivers for the wealthy and corporations way better than anyone thinks of delivering for the people.
Unity is a Tool of Oppression
The verdict for this episode is: unity will not result in change.
In this episode, I discuss how Biden's focus on unity is promoting the status quo, refusing to change, and upholding systemic oppression.
Democrats Should Pack the Supreme Court
The verdict for this episode is: I now support packing the Supreme Court.
In this episode, I discuss the historical support for court packing, and I propose a constitutional amendment.
