March 31, 2015

Ian Millhiser a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and author of Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted, explains the regressive history of the Supreme Court. The historically accident of the progressive nature of the Warren Court. Why FDR wanted the Supreme Court out of economic policy. Was Court packing good for democracy? What we need the Supreme Court for. The Justice that wouldn’t speak Louis Brandeis. The worst Justice in American history. The elitist history of the Court.  Should we have a Supreme Court? How to reform the Supreme Court selection process. Why King V Burwell could kill any last shred of credibility the Court has.

On The Fun Half: Mike Pence is totally incoherent on why he sign Indiana’s new anti Gay bill into law. The closer we are to deal with Iran expect more anti American rhetoric from Iran’s leaders. Republican leader claims Obama is trolling with trip to Keyna and your calls and IMs.
