The Decline of the Middle (by someone from the middle)

Can you feel it??...Well...Can you? I'm a 54 year old male who has worked (meat packing, warehousing, construction..etc.) for 36 years and counting. I've worked both "ground floor" positions and management. Over the years i've spent a great deal of time and energy defending my "long term" employees from the "higher-ups" that have tried and are continuing to try to push them out. That's right. "Long term" (mostly) higher paid employees that have worked hard and honorably for years and years are being "run out of town" by the thousands. Can you feel it??..

The Hugh View

As to the earlier on-air comments today regarding cannibus use by a woman quoting statistics and "facts" about pot use, unfortunately one of them has been proven false.

It was reported many years ago -- around 1993 -- that "more women are victims of domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday than on any other day of the year." Your guest repeated this urban legend. Though I am sympathetic to this likelihood, unfortunately, it is a myth as shown below.

Could these attacks on Gov. Christie backfire?

As everyone knows Gov. Christie is quite outspoken as was President Truman. While Truman was in office the Republicans were linking him to Tom Pendergast of Kansas City Missouri (Which Pendergast did indeed give him a hand to get into politics) Well, it ended up Trum
an became Vice President and later President. Who knows. Maybe the Democratic are doing the same the Republicans once did.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
