We talk to Claudia Clark about her book “Dear Barack” that explains the unique partnership of President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Claudia also gives the European viewpoint of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and finally we discuss her time as a community organizer with the group ACORN.
The stench of Trump has been absorbed into the corpuscles of the Republican party so that now it isn’t about policies but what fake outrage you support or are against. The electorate suffers. We take a look at some examples of this theater called a primary season here in Ohio.
In this episode Doug looks at Bari Weiss’s appearance on Bill Maher’s HBO show and why her flippant Pandemic of Bureaucracy is both childish and dangerous to us all. Then we look at a recent church and state case over a Boston flag pole that was heard at the US Supreme Court. It doesn’t look good for secular people or for more than 40 years of settled jurisprudence.
In this episode, Doug takes a look at political polarization, which many people feel is a threat to our democracy. We take a look at two projects that think talking things out will lead to shiny happy people, rainbows, and unicorns.
