Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Metaphor Mondays"

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 9:45am

It's "Metaphor Monday" on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Nope. Not today.

A black dentist in an all-white practice is forced to choose between being deferential, showing more gratitude and acting more white, or resign; an Arizona GOP official resigns after saying poor women should be sterilized; and What if they gave an aggressive kinetic action and no one came?

Joining us for The Last Half, will be our Netroots Radio Government and World Affairs correspondent, Will McLeod, broadcasting his, Dispatches From Scotland, as he travels the Highlands and the Dells interviewing members of Parliament, business owners and the common working stiffs of Scotland with regular daily reports on the Scottish Independence Referendum.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

Player and other info below the Orange Flourish.



The After Show with Wink and Justice broadcasts 8am to 9am Pacific on Metaphor Mondays, Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa! Wednesdays, Thank God It's Giovedì (that's what we call it) and Angle of Repose Fridays

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Angle of Repose Friday"

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 9:50am

It's "Angle of Repose Friday" on The After Show. You know, the angle in which a granular substance stays in place on a slope. Makes sense to us.

A Colorado woman was arrested for pointing a rifle at a group of kids when an 11 year old was practicing the clarinet in his back yard; the Reagan administration considered offering asylum to Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet; and Water Angels save migrants from dying along the US Southern Border.

On The Last Half today, we will be speaking with tmservo433 about his hard work and BIG news from Kansas and Missouri.

(Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we broadcast, Dispatches From Scotland by Will McLeod, as he travels the Highlands and the Dells interviewing members of Parliament, business owners and the common working stiffs of Scotland with regular daily reports on the Scottish Independence Referendum.)

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Thank God It's Giovedì"

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 9:45am

If it's Thursday on The After Show with Wink & Justice; then Thank God It's Giovedì (that's what we call it)!

GoFundMe has banned all abortion-related campaigns except for the anti-abortion ones; an Ohio woman was raped after a bus driver kicked her off the bus after 1am for a broken flip flop; and an ex-NY Mets executive claims the team owner's son fired her for being pregnant and not married.

On The Last Half, today, we are joined with our Finance News and Monetary Policy Correspondent, Arliss Bunny, author of "The Smart Bunny's Guide to Debt, Deficit and Austerity."

(Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we broadcast, Dispatches From Scotland by Will McLeod, as he travels the Highlands and the Dells interviewing members of Parliament, business owners and the common working stiffs of Scotland with regular daily reports on the Scottish Independence Referendum.)

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa!"

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 9:45am

It's "Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa! Wednesdays" on The After Show. We were going to call it "Germanic Mercury" but you know what they say, if you have to explain a joke, yada yada ya.

Over a dozen heavily armed Militias from militia lands like Idaho, Michigan and Alabama have mustered on the US Southern border to "scare away the migrants," just don't call them militias; Texas intellectual and US Representative Louis Gohmert says Refugee Children will steal your Dreams whilst you slumber and are a threat to our very existence on God's Green Earth; and a Republican Georgia state senator says voting is too convenient for black people who are uneducated anyway.

On The Last Half today, we are joined with filmmakers Patrick S. Lovell and Adam Bronfman about their film, "Forward 13: Waking Up The American Dream" showing at The Roxie in San Francisco on Thursday 11 September and coming to a city or town near you.

It's "Metaphor Monday" on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Nope. Not today.

How do the rich keep getting richer? Here's one way. And it will start getting a lot of attention.

Sat, 09/06/2014 - 4:49pm

The Chronicle of Higher Education just announced that the New York Times is going to start ranking colleges according to how economically diverse they are.  It's about time!  The top private colleges and universities are increasingly becoming ultra-concentrations of wealthy, connected people getting wealthier and more connected.

Here are more details:  http://chronicle.com/...

"Having The New York Times shine light on the fact that an institution has very little economic diversity could have a powerful shaming effect" and be "an important counterweight," said Richard D. Kahlenberg, a senior fellow at the Century Foundation and a proponent of class-based affirmative action. "Right now," he added, "it’s easier to hide." I hope Kahlenberg is right.  I fear that it will become a curiosity, and no action will ever be considered.

CONSIDER THIS DIARY A CALL TO ARMS, quoting myself:  

A real area of reform in this area could be around tax breaks for donations to endowments for schools that don't provide scholarships for a certain percentage of low-income enrollees. This quote surfaced in a comment on this diary about the travesty college education is becoming:  

DIARY:   http://www.dailykos.com/...

COMMENT: http://www.dailykos.com/...

As one example of the disjointedness of our higher education system, I find it amazing that UC Berkeley, a top public university, has consistently educated more Pell grantees (http://www2.ed.gov/...) than the entire 8-university Ivy League put together. Talk about relative levels of direct access and public service.....

Below the orange design element that's also used by Princeton to emboss their high-priced diplomas is a list of college endowments (snark, in case you didn't know).  The money donated to these colleges is given tax free.  It disproportionately goes to help people get educated who really don't need any help -- in addition, of course, to paying faculties and administrators.
