Radical Agenda EP280 - Mr. Speaker

Today at 3:30pm the US House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a bill to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare. Whatever the outcome of the vote, the president is being sabotaged by Paul Ryan and other (((moderate))) Republicans. Even with the tweaks made in effort to appease conservatives, the proposed measure will do little to alleviate the catastrophic and predictable consequences of the current law. As long as the federal government compels insurance companies to cover

Radical Agenda EP279 - Clipzkrieg

It’s just before midnight on Tuesday, and I’m preparing to head back to Keene tomorrow. I hope to be in my studio in time for Wednesday’s show, but I’m beginning to realize it is possible that this won’t happen. So I’m going to do one of my impromptu off hours shows to free myself from that obligation momentarily. On another note, I can’t even log into my spare Facebook account now, so if you could spread this around I’d appreciate

Radical Agenda EP278 – Auction

Radical Agenda EP278 - Auction

Seems like everything is up for sale these days. Nothing is sacred, really. The correlation between who spends the most on a campaign, and who wins an election is staggering. The same corporations regulators claim to be keeping in check, often end up in control of those regulatory agencies, shaping regulations to suit their purposes while suppressing competition. The list of things that money can buy could obviously get longer than anyone would be interested in listening to, but you

Radical Agenda EP277 - Bonus

The last few episodes of the show have gone by so quick I haven’t even gotten to touch on a lot of stories I wanted to get to. Not only that, but I can’t sleep and none of my other available distractions seem very appealing. So in a few minutes, I’m going to turn on the camera, call into the phone system, and go live for a bonus episode of the Radical Agenda. Here’s a few of the headlines on my

Radical Agenda EP276 – St. Patrick’s Day

Radical Agenda EP276 - St. Patrick's Day

Top o’ the Morning to you! We’ve got a packed show today, so I guess it’s a good thing I’m not doing what I’m usually doing by noon on St. Patrick’s day. Amidst parades and pub crawls celebrating the ugliest of stereotypes about my Irish heritage, Donald Trump this morning took the time to address the nation this morning and show the country that he isn’t actually anti-immigrant at all. He discussed the hardships Irish immigrants suffered  as they came

Guerrilla Radio EP003 - Radical Agenda

Augustus Invictus of The Revolutionary Conservative invited me to be a guest on the third episode of Guerrilla Radio last night. So what you’re about to hear is that, and not an actual episode of the Radical Agenda. I hope you don’t mind me putting it in that feed though, because I think you’ll really enjoy this discussion. I always have great conversations with Augustus, as those of you who have been listening to the show for a while already

Radical Agenda EP275 – Returns

Radical Agenda EP275 - Returns

Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve developed what might be described as a profound appreciation for the art of trolling. Even when our enemies are the ones doing it, or they use this precious artform for nefarious purposes, it is sometimes important to sit back and take in the sheer genius of the propaganda itself. Last night, Rachel Maddow broke a big story. Someone illegally leaked Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns, and as if completely unconcerned about the felony involved, Rachel

Radical Agenda EP274 – Demographic Revolution

Radical Agenda EP274 - Demographic Revolution

Here at the Radical Agenda, we’ve found ourselves compelled to become cognizant of demographics in a way few could have predicted just a couple of years ago. Perhaps you’ve been with us on this journey all along, or perhaps you’ve only turned in as a result, but I imagine either way you have known the simultaneous fear and optimism that comes with becoming aware of these things. It affixes a new lens to one’s worldview that seems to bring the

Radical Agenda EP273 - Patriarchal Sport

Feminists blame a lot of things on the patriarchy. This is understandable in some sense, because men do in fact run the world. We always have, we always will, and anything women are doing in societies which think themselves quite progressive, they are doing because men have permitted them to. I used to get annoyed when feminists complained about this phenomenon, because obviously men endure horrific suffering in this world. We are almost all of the war casualties, even as

Radical Agenda EP272 – Without A Woman

Radical Agenda EP272 - Without A Woman

Justice is a bullet through every pink hat. Today is “international women’s day” and to celebrate, communists have taken the day off of work. This was only minimally disruptive, because most of these people don’t actually provide any value. The overpriced babysitters of the public school system have caused a few schools to close for the day, and of course it is too much to expect they would be disciplined for causing this shutdown, but other than that I think
