3/4-5 Weekend News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on March 4, 2023 by jcityboneMarch 4, 2023 Starting with an article about Bernie’s appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher.
Overtime with Bill Maher and his guests, including Bernie. I enjoyed listening to Bernie laughing at the wit and simpatico banter with Russell Brand. I don’t know if Maher’s producers had any inkling this dynamic would occur or not.
Cos I don’t pay much attention to video media, I don’t know much about Brand. I do know he can be a Brit fireball. I just caught the Bernster but I will check out these links. 🙂
Just finished watching the ‘Overtime’ clip as I saw the earlier one over Hubster’s shoulder. Very enjoyable, truthful and funny. I gotta say it: Brand is not just a fireball; he’s as sharp as a new razor. Looking forward to Bernie’s book. 🙂
The author’s tone leaves something to be desired but the article does give a good snapshot about these Bernie tour events.
TIME has had a conservative slant in its writing for decades now. It still turns out a lot of decent reads that aren’t semi- or illiterate.
May be. Meantime, Bernie’s new book is already on the the California Indie Booksellers best sellers list this week. Just came out the past week.

I’m now on the Hold list at our library for Bernie’s read. 🙂
It likely means one copy, I guess it is fine for the public library to collect since It’s OK doesn’t contain illustrations of LGBTQ folks in it.
My downtown area is pretty progressive.🙂 Besides, once “Governor” Goon gets exposed to the rest of the country, it will be toast. Good riddance and I hope Sick Rott goes with it.💩💩
A ball of cotton has a higher IQ than this imbecile and his state. Just ask @phatkhat. 🙂
Par for the course with Byedone. My question is simple: have these yahoos actually read what’s in that Crime Bill? Cos it sure isn’t soft on crime including carjacking.
I wasn’t aware Feinstein was in the hospital.
T and R x 2, jcb!! 🙂 Thanks to you and Ms. Benny for doing the yeoperson work hosting our Nest! 🙂 You bet I caught the Bernster on Maher’s show. Man, Maher is getting more RW (senile?) in his aging years. Very disappointing.
Push back was excellent on Bernie’s part.
Agree wholeheartedly. ☮️
Unless you are Brainwrap.
+270! Where’s her ditzo twin, the former (cough, gag) ‘governor of Alaska?
Or the world is saying “serenity now.”.
CPAC(rap) must be hard up for celebs this year.
Weekend Work Inches Up in Era of Layoffs, Out-of-Office Shifts
Let’s have a little Saturday night disco. Here’s two versions of a classic
And here’s Jimmy Somerville (now in Bronski Beat) with one of the best gay anthems ever. Great video for the song. Groundbreaking for its year (1984). And a happy ending!
A great live Thelma version
I was working on my recovery exercises this afternoon to this tune. I remember it from 1990.
Great song and album but there was some controversy.
My favorite Martha Wash song as half of the Weather Girls with Izora Armstead.
🙂 Oh man, I love the Weather Girls!
Here’s the other mega hit from the album
Takes me back.
Me, too. Okay, I gotta do it. This tune isn’t quite in the disco mode; it’s an anthemic tune written by Vangelis. Donna Summers does the greatest, most brilliant covah ever IMNSHO 🙂 .
🙂 !! Wasn’t she related to Whitnerd aka Whitney Houston?
🙂 🙂 !!!
Good godalmighty, when is the craporate greed gonna get wrestled under control???????????? Speaking of idiots propagandized into voting against their own human interests and welfare, here’s a link to a very important read in today’s NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2023/03/04/us/politics/panic-fox-news-2020-election.html. People really need to study history. Propaganda runs on certain principles that have been around for centuries. All that changes are the means (bullhorns) and the demagogues. 🙁
Not any time soon ORL-sadly. Its if and when the people in this country realize it’s not really the R v D that’s killing this country. The real war is between the oligarchy and the rest of us. They own most the corgresscritters to get tax breaks, concraprate subsidies and buy off the various govt entities that are supposed to protect all Americans when accidents such as NF happen. They own the weapons of mass deception that keep the US v Them thing going. They constantly keep narratives going that promotes hate and division going -they just change on who it’s time to hate. It’s the classic distraction so the voter doesn’t notice that more laws and weakend regulations were passed to the Oligarchy benefit. Maybe someday Americans will put aside this and really look and see whom is the real problem is- the oligarchy and finally do something about the real problem. Just a footnote in the 1980s there were 15 billionaires in the world, now theirs over 2600 of them and they carry considerable weight on what actual, policy is truly enacted with the congresscritters they own.
They all meet once a year at their super secret “Billionaires” Summit to discuss what they need from the Govts they control, the results are generally not in the rest of us best interest. Sadly it’s we the people thru our ignorance(both sides) that vote the letter and continually re-elect the puppets of the Oligarchy. There are very few congresscritters that actually work for the people these days And those that do get death threats as the media say they are bad for America. Like you Orl many of us are running out of time to see meaningful change in our life time…
