No matter where you stand on 3rd parties, listen as I interview a Green Party veteran tonight

Whether you’re interested in being part of a third party or skeptical of them as a strategy, you’ll be interested to hear me interview Phil Huckelberry tonight. He is the co-chair of both the Illinois Greens and the national Green Party.

Listen here at 8:30 PM EST tonight: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/i…

Under his leadership, the Greens gained 10.3% of the gubernatorial vote in 2006, and they hope to do the same or better this year. Phil has also run for office as a Green and been in a national leadership role for years. This year in Illinois, the Green candidate for Senate is the only African American in the race and has polled as high as 14% with the entire public and 30% with African Americans. Their gubernatorial candidate has polled as high as 11%, although he has seen a recent slump in the polls. They also have other strong candidates, like candidate for state rep Jeremy Karpen, who outraised the incumbent Democrat at one point during the race and got 21% against her last time he ran…this time he is much better-organized, though.

I’m a Green Party member (at least nominally, if not legally), but I don’t plan on asking softball questions. Please leave any questions you have in the comments or call in at 646-200-0264.

Friday at 8PM EDT on Blog Talk Radio

After calling in to Diane G’s Blog Talk Radio program last Friday evening, which dealt with 9/11 conspiracy hypotheses, I decided to revive my own show for a special continuing discussion on the subject since I wasn’t able to fully discuss my own interpretation of that day’s events.  The show will last two hours and will air at eight o’clock Eastern Daylight Time this coming Friday.

I’ll be debunking some of the wilder beliefs about what actually happened on September 11, 2001 and offering my own hypothesis about the government’s refusal to take action in the months leading up to the attacks.  (I want the truth to come out too, but I think the search for it has veered way off course and taken us places that can only lead to continued frustration.)  I’ll also be taking calls so people can discuss the Democrats’ Republican health insurance bill and what the consequences are both for Americans and for the Democrats in November.  And if time allows, the final portion of the show will deal with this week’s latest mining disaster, how deregulation helped it happen, and what must be done to ensure that something like this doesn’t happen again.

Here’s the link to the show.


The call-in number is  1 (347) 884-9121

I hope to hear from Diane G. and all other interested listeners out there.  Thanks for reading!
