Gag reflex ready?

Posted By on Fri, Oct 16, 2009 at 2:16 PM

Americans for Prosperity is bringing its road show to Arkansas Oct. 29. Republican hatchet men are the paid facilitators of this outfit, a creation of the wealth of the right-wing Koch family, which makes jillions from oil and chemicals. You can guess where they stand on environmental legislation. They'll be in Little Rock, Jonesboro and Texarkana to argue against spending of the money they inherited from daddy on government health care for the sick and needy.

If that isn't bad enough, they'll reportedly be bringing faux journalist John Stossel with them. "Pathological liar," in one writer's view. Also "stupid.": A marriage made in heaven with Fox.

As it happens, Rachael Maddow worked over one of the oily AFP shills last night. First part mentions Arkansas visit. Click to see second part for lots of details on this bunch.


Here's Part II.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
