Where'd Mitch go? I was

Where'd Mitch go? I was excited to hear his coverage of the Democratic Convention, he was missed!

It's always a joy to here

It's always a joy to here Prof. Wolff and is wonderful Wife? If so they shouldn't be shy about saying this.
There is one point where I disagree with Prof. Wolff. Even though, it will not fix a broken system, I think some of these bankers should be jailed. The people need to see that these financial criminals aren't above the law. Unfortunately, this is not happening. The Justice Department is dropping the case against MF Global and John Corzine. Someone prophetically wrote, “the best way to rob a bank is to own one.” (Prof. William Black) Anyway, these are not “victimless crimes” - real farmers went bankrupt when MF Global was driven into the ditch. And millions have lost homes, jobs with families being destroyed in the larger economic crash.

Oops, I meant It's a joy to

Oops, I meant It's a joy to hear Prof. Wolff and who it seems might be his wonderful wife?

Again, left parties

Again, left parties marginalized at the start of the program hosted by Maldari.
One doesn’t build a Left movement by marginalizing it.
The Green Party is on the ballot in 36 states. Almost no coverage of the Green Party. No left party representation on a program hosted by Maldari.
Coverage is clearly unfair and unbalanced, and overwhelming weighted towards the duopoly.
To expect that the Obama/Romney duopoly is a route to solution is insane.
Albert Einstein - "Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results."
Under Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity, KPFA coverage of this election is insane. It will result in helping to continue the same looting of the US treasury, the same give away of schools to corporations, the same deportations, the same US Genocide and apartheid in the Middle East Obama’s drone murders continue, and etc..
Zinn said that third movements force oligarchies to fall or to make laws that benefit the 99%.
The slates of other left party candidates are all worth consideration.
My solution it to vote for Jill Stein for President.
