Social Security Talk With Richard Eskow

This is a good time to remind people that I had a great Virtually Speaking talk with Richard Eskow, about Social Security that you should listen to.
I joined Campaign for America’s Future’s Richard Eskow to talk about the “fiscal cliff” scare, austerity, Social Security, Medicare and how we WON the election so we really should be talking about jobs instead.
This was a GREAT hour, and hold the information you need to arm yourself to win holiday-dinner conversations with your right-wing brother-in-law.
The conversation refers to my post, Fiscal Cliff Scare Talk Follows Shock Doctrine Script as well as several posts by Richard Eskow including,
Wall Street Finds a ‘Third Way’ to Plunder Our Wealth,
The “Fiscal Cliff” Is a Hoax … and a Mel Brooks Routine,
The Grand Swindle – Veterans on a Cliff,
After the Election, a New Mandate – and New “Fiscal Cliff” Math

Sara Robinson On Virtually Speaking

This week I had a conversation with Sara Robinson on Virtually Speaking. It went very well, and I invite you to listen to the recording.
We talked about the early days of the blogosphere, how the bloggers were right while all the corporate-mainstream pundits were wrong, the threat from and meaning of fascism, how close we came under Bush, how that is changing, what happens if Romney wins, what future studies is and how it relates to the progressive movement, Sara’s project at AlterNet and many other subjects.
