Guest: Author and investigative journalist David Cay Johnston

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) has a new ad for Wisconsin and is taking donations to keep it playing on WI TV.

Obama is meeting up in Florida with Jeb Bush to discuss how his education reform is going to screw teachers and students more.

Product DetailsAuthor and investigative journalist David Cay Johnston joins the show to talk about the spin that Republicans and the media are using to portray exactly who is contributing to public worker’s pensions in Wisconsin.

He also discusses his new piece on about tax revenues are down over 30% since 2000 even though George W. Bush told us tax cuts would increase revenue. Laffer Curve anyone?

    Hello, Good Morning.

    You’re early. :)

  2. Linda in Denver says:

    On the front of this page where it usually says how many comments, it does not show any, even though I posted.

  3. Bullshit…This “republican rebellion” in Wisconsin is just cover Sam. Carefully orchestrated kabuki designed to give vulnerable thugs political cover for selling out their union constituents. ALL Republicans need to be held accountable for the actions of their party. When Republican Senators start leaving the state to prevent a vote, I might consider changing my viewpoint.

    my comment is awaiting moderation?

    why? i’ve been here since the world was flat!

    What is the music (band/song) that’s playing now, right after David Cay Johnston? Thanks!

    • kopanko says:

      … Sounds like it’s in French… Every other line alternates betweeen “non, non, non, non” and “mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm” ? Trying to find it on iTunes. Thanks for any info.

      • Linda in Denver says:

        It would be nice if the show posted details on the bumper music. With lyrics and links to vids too. Took me forever to find Pressure Drop and Pilot Light. Still haven’t found lyrics for Pilot Light.

      • Alvin Marte says:

        The french song is La Poupee Qui Fait Non by Luna (a cover of Michael Polnareff’s original 60s verision).

        One of the other bumper songs is The Strokes – Last Nite

  7. Great shows Sam. I can see a PEABODY AWARD coming. Thank you.

    • kopanko says:

    Thank you, Alvin.

    la poupee qui fait non

    Here is the version by Michel Polnareff.

    Here is a translation

    The doll who said no

    She is a doll who says “no, no, no no”
    All day long, she says “no no no no no”
    She is, she is so cute
    That I dream of her all night
    She is a doll who says “no, no, no no”
    All day long, she says “no no no no no”
    No one has every taught her
    That one can say “oui”
    Without even hearing, she says “no no no no”
    Without looking at me she says “no no no no”
    However I would give my life
    for her to say “yes”
    However I would give my live
    That she would say “yes”
    But she is a doll, who says “no no no no”
    All the day long she says “no no no no”
    No one has taught her
    That it’s possible to say “yes”
    Oh no no no non no
    no no no
    She says no….

    Did anyone watch Colbert Mon./2-28-11 with the guest who was an ex-CIA agent and had written a book. He gave a summary that included we/America needed to step back from our relationship with Israel; he looked a lot like David Cay Johnston. Just wondering b/c the CIA guy said he was in disguise. Great interview – fascinating book.

  12. APRES ERITASARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Du menak aveli shat ban es anum hayeri anvan hamar qan te 10000-nerov
