Wouldn't really rather watch people fighting than people voting?
Of course you would.  War is expensive, that's true but so are elections.  Maybe even more expensive...
That said...
Above all else, what's at stake in Tuesday's midterm elections is control of the U.S. Senate.
 That, in turn, will shape the fate of President Barack Obama's agenda for the rest of his term. And everything else that Congress wants to do, or stop from getting done.
Republicans need to gain six seats to win back the Senate majority they lost in 2006. Their odds are good, but it's not a slam dunk. 13:34 minutes (12.42 MB)

Mon, 11/03/2014

Bill Resnick and Patrick Mazza discuss Naomi Klein's promising new book about capitalism and the environment, "This Changes Everything: captalsism vs. the climate". They consider the books merits, but also how it does not adequately deal with the challenges it raises against capitalism. They talk about corporate environmentalism, how Naomi ties the great social movements of the last couple centuries to environmentalism, but also her soft-pedaling on the big-business approach to sustainable energy, and the need for radically democratic solutions that devolve centralized forms of power in society, the economy, and energy grid.

The Center for Public Integrity evaluated the disclosure rules for judges in the highest state courts nationwide. The level of disclosure in the 50 states and the District of Columbia was poor, with 43 receiving failing grades,   Oregon among those, making it difficult for the public to identify potential conflicts of interest on the bench. Despite the lack of information in the public records, the Center’s investigation found nearly three dozen conflicts, questionable gifts and entanglements among top judges around the country.  Investigative journalist, Janet Phelan analyses what the Center found in Oregon - and "It ain't that Pretty at All...""
