New Jersey men arrested. They were thinking about blowing up the Path tunnel. Looks a lot like the Miami 7. Guys who are thinking bad thoughts and no means to carry out those thoughts. Bush administration noted that college tutition is going up soooo they cutting student loans just to balance things out. Actually, the original excuse is that they are trying to balance the budget. We confront some of the lies of the Right this week. We point out that Ann Coulter seems to be in a little hot water for copying someone elses notes and pretending that they are hers. We listen to some great music - James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power and more.
Cheney and company are clearly on the attack. They are trying to gain the advantage. Pulling out of Iraq would be the worst thing. Feingold on Meet the Press says lying to the American people about Iraq is the worst thing. We talk with Ari Berman from The Nation about what's going on in Washington. Also, the wisdom of confronting the misstatements and mistruths of the Right. This and more on Where's the Outrage?
So, I had nothing to talk about this week. Nothing at all...Well, there was the announcement by Sen. Santorum. The House debates the Paris Hilton Tax. Well, it wasn't a real debate. It was more name calling. Nancy Pelosi and Rep Doggert (D-Tx) have some great things to say. I interview Joseph Cirincione from the Center for American Progress. He is a expert on nuclear weapons and terrorism. He gives us the scoop on Sen Santorum and also announces the results of their Terrorism Survey.
