It's the Day After, Truthseekers. There are a couple of hopeful takeaways from yesterday's GOP senate takeover -- one, if the Congressional gridlock continues, then the GOP will only have themselves to blame, and two, we don't have to suffer through any run-off TV ads over the holidays. It's the little things ...

Harvey Wasserman at offers this commentary:

"The GOP/corporate coup d'etat is nearly complete.

"The Republicans now control the major media, the Supreme Court, the Congress and soon the presidency.

"Think Jeb Bush in 2016.

"All throughout America, right down to the local level, buried in a tsunami of cash and corruption, our public servants are being morphed into corporate operatives.

"Our electoral apparatus is thoroughly compromised by oceans of dirty money, Jim Crow registration traps, rigged electronic voting machines, gerrymandering, corrupt secretaries of state.

"The internet may be next. Above all, if there is one thing that could save us a shred of democracy, it's preserving net neutrality. This fight could in fact outweigh all the others, and may be decided soon. Whatever depression you may now feel, shake it off to wage this battle. If we now lose the ability to freely communicate, we are in the deepest hole of all.

"The roots of this corporate coup reach where they always do when empires collapse -- useless, cancerous, debilitating, endless imperial war."

It is Church Night Truthseekers, and we have some truly inspiring sermons for you this evening, which might be a portent of things to come once the GOP assumes control in January. In Mississippi, for example, there is a measure before the legislature to "defend" the state's confederate heritage. A former Miss America has become the movement's spokes-model. If passed, citizens of Mississippi -- both black and white, we presume -- would celebrate "Confederate Heritage Day" in April.

The Clarion-Ledger offers this:

"A Mississippi heritage group has launched a ballot initiative that would appear on the 2016 statewide ballot if enough signatures are obtained.

"The 12-part ballot measure, if passed, would amend the state's constitution to acknowledge 'Confederate Heritage Month,' which would provide a curriculum base for school children to learn about 'Mississippi's Confederate history, heritage, achievements, and prominent people,' the initiative reads.

"It would also acknowledge Christianity as the official religion of the state and English as the official language of the state.

"'We passionately believe in the heritage, culture, values, traditions, and Southern hospitality of Mississippi, the Magnolia State,' the Magnolia State Heritage Campaign website reads. 'No more pressing '1' for English.'

"Additional proposed changes under the initiative include flying the Confederate battle flag on the grounds of the Mississippi state capitol, mandating that a Mississippi pledge of allegiance be recited after the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, and the mandatory broadcast of the song 'Dixie' immediately following the playing of the 'Star Spangled Banner' in public venues."

Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
