That’s the cover of the April 15 edition of Rolling Stone magazine, one of the few magazines we still subscribe to here in this house. Yes, I like the music, but it’s the journalistic gems – most importantly from Matt Taibbi – that keep me coming back for more.
Taibbi’s latest, “The Real Housewives of Wall Street“, gets behind the top-secret walls of the Fed and exposes massive, sickening giveaways of our tax dollars. I won’t paraphrase Taibbi, but instead tell you to click the link, read the story, and listen to our interview. Yes, it will make you angry. But first we get angry… then we take action!
Another topic that’s sure to enrage you is that of the rising cost of a gallon of gas. Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen’s Energy program, will join in to tell us the reason behind the recent spike, what’s causing it, and what can be done to stop it.
And in hour two, our regular Tuesday morning get-together with GottaLaff of The Political Carnival. Some of the stories we’ll discuss today include
