Lila Garrett’s  CONNECT THE DOTS.

Did the Democrats bring this disaster on themselves?  Monday morning guests suggest a change that will make a right wing putsch like this election less likely to happen. 

Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida, who along with many progressive Democrats was betrayed in his run for Senate by the right wing of his own party, lists other candidates who suffered the same fate. In his remaining days in this Congress, he plans to introduce a bill which could bring dramatic change to the election process. 

Former Assembly person Jackie Goldberg analyzes what went wrong and what went right with the election.  Believe it or not, some things  that should have won, actually did. 

Nobel Peace Prize nominee David Swanson has a different take on the significance of the election altogether.  What can we do about it?  Prepare to be activated.

Video of Debate: "Is War Necessary?"

I finally got a video of the debate I did on whether war is ever necessary.

To edit it or put it on Youtube I need somebody who has a program called Tegrity to upload the video to Youtube from which I can download it. Please let me know if you can do that.

In the meantime, you can watch the video here. To get to the start of the debate, you have to jump ahead about 12 minutes by sliding or clicking at the bottom of the video. To get to my initial remarks, you have to jump ahead about 36 minutes.


Let me know what you think.
