On episode 157 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined by Dave (@D_v_E on Twitter) from The Corner Tavern Blog and the Refudiate This, Sarah blog, Sarah (@s_a_cosgrove on Twitter) from the Mashrabiyya Blog, David (@My1BlueEye on Twitter) from the One Blue Eye Blog and Ian (@iboudreau on Twitter).

On today’s show, we talk about the Justice Department deciding to no longer defend the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) law, and how Fox News has been lying about the union protests in Wisconsin.  We also discuss the reporter posing as billionare, David Koch, calling the Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, and the recording of their discussion about the efforts to bust the public employee union and trick the 14 Democratic Senators into returning to the State so they can pass the union busting legislation. And then Sarah fills us in on what’s going on the situation in Libya.

Episode 155 – Change Comes to Egypt and Ayn Rand

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 155 – February 13, 2011

On episode 155 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined by Dave (@D_v_E on Twitter) from The Corner Tavern Blog and the Refudiate This, Sarah blog, Sarah (@s_a_cosgrove on Twitter) from the Mashrabiyya Blog, Don (@OTooleFan on Twitter) from the TomFoolery with OTooleFan Blog and Joseph (@marnus3 on Twitter).

On today’s show, we continue last weeks discussion with Sarah, who is an expert on the Middle East, to discuss the results of the protests in Egypt as well as some on the right wing’s crazy “Caliphate” theory that Glenn Beck and others are spinning on Fox News. And then we move into a discussion with our expert, OTooleFan, about Ayn Rand and the movie coming out soon based on her book “Atlas Shrugged”.  OTooleFan explains the philosophy behind Ayn Rand and her writings and how some in the right wing are driving their politics based on these theories.

Be sure and check out OToolefan’s blog post about Ayn Rand at http://otoolefan.wordpress.com/2011/01/23/i-me-mine-the-unholy-trinity-of-ayn-rand/

The Tim Corrimal Show

On episode 154 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined by Dave (@D_v_E on Twitter) from The Corner Tavern Blog and the Refudiate This, Sarah blog, Seth (@Sethp23 on Twitter), Andrew (@awienick on Twitter) and Sarah (@s_a_cosgrove on Twitter).

On today’s show, we are joined by Sarah, who is an expert on the Middle East to discuss the protests in Egypt. We talk about the history behind the uprising and how the US diplomacy of the past 40 years has played into this sitaution in Egypt. And then we talk about the right wing’s crazy “Caliphate” theory that Glenn Beck and others are spinning on Fox News. (Beware of the “F” bombs when we get to that discussion on the show). Sarah explains it all in a historical construct and we can’t thank her enough for her time this week joining us on the round table.
