We summarize last week’s events (including the March for Justice); announce upcoming events for next week; and comment on the Ohio Voters Bill of Rights, a new development in emergency unemployment extension legislation, various bad economic trends, a new report from Princeton and Northwestern researchers concluding our nation is an oligarchy not a democracy, and what John Steinbeck in The Grapes of Wraph on the 75th anniversary of its publication had to say about corporations personhood and banks.
Tune in. Let us know what you think!
