It was an historic upset when Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost Tuesday to his Tea Party challenger. Howie Klein from Down With Tyranny tells us what the fallout will be.
Howie Klein knows best, he tells us how to vote in tomorrow’s primaries:
Ralph Nader, Henriette Mantel and Howie Klein join us for an amazing thirty minutes. Ralph Nader’s new radio show premieres this week for Pacifica. Henriette Mantel starred as Alice in The Brady Bunch movies, and Howie Klein is the founder and treasurer of the Blue America PAC which raises money for progressive candidates around America.
The Essential Nader says, “Ralph Nader is one of America’s most effective social critics. Named by The Atlantic as one of the 100 most influential figures in American history, and by Time and Life magazines as one of the hundred most influential Americans of the twentieth century, his documented criticism of government and industry has had widespread effect on public awareness and bureaucratic power. He is the “U.S.’s toughest customer” says Time magazine. His inspiration and example have galvanized a whole population of consumer advocates, citizen activists, and public interest lawyers who in turn have established their own organizations throughout the country.”
Henriette’s new book is No Kidding. In No Kidding, comedy writer Henriette Mantel tackles the topic of actually not having kids. This fascinating collection features a star-studded group of contributors—including Margaret Cho, Wendy Liebman, Laurie Graff, and other accomplished, funny women—writing about why they opted out of motherhood. Whether their reasons have to do with courage, apathy, monetary considerations, health issues, or something else entirely, the essays featured in the pages of No Kidding honestly (and humorously) delve into the minds of women who have chosen what they would call a more sane path.
Hilarious, compelling, and inspiring, No Kidding reveals a perspective that has too long been hidden, shamed, and silenced—and celebrates an entire population of women who have decided that kids are just not right for them.
