Rachel Maddow: Wisconsin GOP Votes to Strip Union Rights

My head was near spinning off last night. I had so many questions. Rachel Maddow did an excellent job, as usual, of explaining what went on. There is even footage of what happened moments before the vote in the chamber.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

    Maddow is an excellent interviewer…I use to listen to her on Air America….even if you do not like her politics she is still a good journalist….

    She’s one of my go-to people for information.

      As a progressive, who are some of your other go-to people?

      • Terrance H.

        Karl Marx, Lenin, et cetera…

        Didn’t know there were radio and TV stations in the afterlife. Do they blog too? 🙄

        Now, now Terry. Why muast you always take things to extreme. Should I refer to your ideological leanings including Benito Mussolini and Augusto Pinochet.

        Lenin was a Bolshevik, not a progressive and Marx … well contrary to popular misconceptions he wasn’t a Marxist. Kind of like Jesus wasn’t a Christian.

        Marx’s philosophy was hi-jacked by Lenin, et al. When you read him in light of the historic time period he wrote, you would probably agree with him. Religious leaders were corrupt for the most part and the aristocratic political leaders were out of touch with the citizens they ruled.

        Marx was just one of many among the secular thinkers then like Hegel and Schleiermacher who sought other alternatives to the apathetic status quo of the time.

        I like Lawrence O’Donnell and Paul Krugman

        Cool, lb. I have to look into Krugman more. O’Donnell has a nice quiet way about him.

        Fascism is a combination of the Left and Right; the worst of each.

        Nice to see you defending Karl Marx. Completely expected, by the way.

        I was being facetious, but again, because you like to attack, you took it three times around the block.

        You really should seek counseling.

    • Terrance H.

      That explains everything quite well.
