Before I get started I want to thank all of those who gave to Politics Done Right during our 1 week summer fund drive. I want to belatedly thank Mary Rodarte, a returning member from Phelan CA for her most generous donation over the web. I also want to thank Joe Stephens, Joe Stephens for Justice of the Peace, Houston TX, for his generous support of Politics Done Right and community radio via our website. Joe is an ex-Houston Rocket who has stayed in the community not only as a celebrity but one who reinvests in his community. Please remember you can continue to sponsor our show here.
The most talked about things in politics right now is Bernie Sanders, Black Lives Matter, and Donald Trump. Politics Done Right for all practical purposes is a Trump free zone as we believe in reality based politics, policies, and issues. That being the case in my humble opinion the most exciting and substantive thing in politics is the Bernie Sanders’ policies and the necessary amplification of his policies from the pressure provided by the organically grown grassroots group #BlackLivesMatter.
Bernie Sanders supporters have been less than receptive to their tactics. Others fear that their candidates will be next. To be clear, their candidates will be next. Today I want to entertain a frank discussion on this issue. I want to create a space, a no guilt space for anyone of any persuasion to call in and ask questions or say their piece. I will also be live on Periscope (Egberto Willies / @EgbertoWillies)
