Boston attorney Jim King joins us at an unusual-for-us Thursday to talk about his campaign for the Dem nomination for U.S. Senator from MA. He offers a detailed platform, heavy on economics, covering seven big issues. He speaks of Yankee ingenuity and New England ideals translated to our current situation. Of course, we’ll ask about […]

We try not to be too gleeful or delusionally optimistic, but…but…but… The GOP POTUS would be types pummel each other. It’s hard to say for certain which is worse for their chances in November.

We can’t help it. We’ll do a show today, Tuesday, Jan. 24th at 2:30 PM Eastern, on the GOP primary. Yes, another show.

What’s a progressive to do this year? Many of us are unhappy at the timid leadership we’ve seen so far from the POTUS. We’ll talk about the choices coming up in November. Clearly, the GOP goofballs are not going to appeal to lefties, the humane, and the reasonable. Yet, we carry a big bag of […]
