With all the hand-wringing this week over executive bonues at AIG (which is really a pittance compared to the overall bailout amount of BILLIONS) DU blogger leveymg explains the MYTHS ABOUT MADOFF’S “PONZI SCHEME” – Bernie’s Game Wasn’t What They Tell You. And Ralph Nader asks, "Where are the resources for comprehensive law enforcement against the Wall Street crooks, swindlers and purveyors of costly deceptive practices? Isn’t there a need to add two to three hundred million dollars for more FBI agents, prosecutors and corporate crime attorneys under the Justice Department to obtain the fines and disgorgements which will far exceed in dollars what is spent by the forces of law and order?" The GOP continue to stonewall any and all Dem ideas and bills. Robert Freeman wonders if The US Is Facing a Weimar Moment "as was the case with Germany in 1919, Republicans do not intend to allow the new government to succeed. They will do everything they can to undermine it. If they are successful, the U.S. may yet go the way of Weimar Germany" and "Bereft of ideas, bankrupt in ideology, architects of collapse, obstruction is all they have." With all that in mind, Sunday's bobbleheads will have plenty more handwringing going on. It's a brick-throwing free-for-all! Watch BARNEY FRANK give the bizness to CHUCK GRASSLEY on Face the Bob with AUSTIN GOOLSBEE running cover. Then This Snufagupolis gets KENT CONRAD to ask SUSAN COLLINS if she want to be part of the New Blue Dog Club. Meet the David gets renowned economists MICHAEL BLOOMBERG and ARNOLD GOVERNATOR to tell ED RENDELL to privatize all of Pennsylvania. CHARLIE "Where's my General" RANGEL goes to Fox Noise Sunday to give RICHARD SHELBY a piece of his mind. The WH Limo takes Christina Romer to Fake News and State of the King. And 60 Minutes gets yet another interview with OBAMA. Later, check out Ring of Fire Radio with SAM SEDER & MARK MARON guest hosts, featuring CHRIS HEDGES and JUAN COLE. Take some time to listen to AntiWar Radio and an interview with Tomas Young from the documentary Body of War. The Brick TeeVee crew is glued to the NCAA Hoops Tourney. They are cheering on the Cleveland State Vikings and hope to see them go to the Sweet Sixteen tomorrow! Go Vikings! Unfortunately they had one bracket go bust when the OSU Buckeyes lost in double overtime. They still have Zaga, Villanova and UCONN alive and well, thank you! And spin your local AM dial to find a Spring Training game going on somewhere. Opening Night is only two weeks away!

    Go to to watch & listen! Very cool! SEE BELOW!!!!

  • Ring of Fire Radio airamericaheader.jpg Bobby and Mike are out this week, so we’ve turned our studios over to Marc Maron and Sam Seder from Break Room Live!
    Find us at and
    • This week, we’ll be talking with columnist and author Dan Gross about the make-believe war on the rich that the GOP is trying so desperately to convince us is actually happening.
    • We’ll also be checking in with author Frank Schaeffer, the man who helped invent the Religious Right. He’s gonna tell us why he not only abandoned the religious fringe in this country, but the Republican Party altogether.
    • We’ve also got professor, author, and Middle East expert Juan Cole, who’ll tell us about his new book “Engaging the Muslim World,” and we’ll also get some insight into the Afghanistan opium trade that’s supplying the majority of the world’s opium, and represents a huge source of income for both the Taliban and non-militant farmers
    • And Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges stops by to tell us how Americans have become increasingly unaware of their surroundings over the last few decades, and we’ve grown to accept things as they are presented to us, rather than looking past the spin and seeing things as they are. According to Hedges, this is a particularly dangerous phenomenon now, when we are literally watching our economy and infrastructure crumbling before our eyes.
    Ring of Fire Radio hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mike Papantonio: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern featuring The PAP Attack! "We’ll bring you the stories that the mainstream media didn’t feel like reporting this week."

  • Dave Marsh on XM 167 Listen to podcasts of Dave Marsh LIVE! @ via E STREET RADIO.
    As reported by ghettodefender Sun, 02/08/2009 - 5:28pm.
      wiki: Dave Marsh (born March 1, 1950, Detroit, Michigan) is an American music critic who briefly attended Wayne State University, became a co-founder of Creem magazine, wrote for various publications such as Newsday, The Village Voice, and Rolling Stone, and also edited Rock and Roll Confidential, a newsletter about rock music and social issues. Marsh is also a member of the National Advisory Board of PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children. XM put this guy on this afternoon, and I though he was great. Not as good as Sam, but a hella of lot better than a rerun of Rachael. Mostly, he talking about Phelps and our stupid drug laws. He really wanted callers. Was easy to talk to. And never pulled a Randi. Anyway, I don't know anything about him, but so far I'm glad I'm hearing him.
    We'll take that as a ringing endorsement! Check it out!
