Gov. Palin A Liberal? Sarah Joins Progressive Movement

February 13, 2010

In a surprising political about-face, Sarah Palin has decided to join the progressive movement. Apparently, someone showed her the polls and she realized that’s where the real populism was and she wanted to be a part of it. Interestingly, she offers some very strong advice for how progressives in America can organize to enact real change.

Health Care Insurance Mandate Bailout, Swine Flu Vaccines – Take Back Talking Points episode 4

February 10, 2010

Take Back Talking Points is back from the dead. This episode we discuss the health care reform bill passed by the House and the swine flu and the vaccine controversy. We talk about the public option and whether it will be effective, forced health insurance and a possible big handout to the insurance industry, and the H1N1 (swine flu) virus, how serious a threat it might actually be, and we try to make some sense out of the vaccine controversy. And we go on some interesting tangents on the economy in general, worker exploitation, and Afghanistan.

Joining me this episode are Zach, aka FeelFreeToArgue, and Brendon, aka Funkalunatic.

Take Back Talking Points is a progressive roundtable talk show which will hopefully begin to appear on YouTube and this blog on a regular basis.
