Senate Risks Financial Ruin Ignores What Most Americans Want - clip

Here Thom Hartmann speaks with Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin concerning a variety of current topics and issues including what's going on (or not) in the US Congress:

You know, I've mentioned before that it would be good for our Republic for us all to see exactly what's in the stock portfolios of US Congress members so that the information could be compared with their votes for or against legislation written by lobbyists and special interest operatives. So much congressional behavior would be explained!

A Possibly Related Post: London, Trump, and the Temple of Gold.

Also in the news: double Scorpio Julian Assange, pal of Russia and Trump's friend political Svengali Roger Stone.

Video Tour of Washington: Thomas Frank

Here you see Thomas Frank in his car readying to motor about and show us something of Washington DC, kind of a then and now overview.

Anyway, Mr. Frank, author of The Wrecking Crew, has done me some good showing my old DC stomping grounds even though viewing the video has had quite the expected effect upon my populist sensibilities because...

look what they've done to my favorite city.
