Out d’Coup | Students Against NRA; WV Teachers Walk Out; Working People’s Day of Action; MO Freak Gov.; PA Map Fight; Wagner Wants to Close PASSHE Schools; Greg Edwards; CollegeForAllPA.org; and more!
On today’s show, students bring the hurt on the NRA and show politicians what a spine looks like. Florida lawmakers take baby steps toward introducing mild gun bills today. And, as you might expect, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre, goes off into fantasyland at CPAC, claiming Kamala Harris and Corey Booker are socialists looking to infiltrate the government. The worst thing is, he has no idea how funny that actually is. West Virginia teachers go on two-day, state-wide strike showing the rest of the labor movement what it's going to need to do in the coming years. Saturday, February 24th is the Working People’s Day of Action around the country. Rallies are scheduled from coast to coast ahead of Monday’s Supreme Court arguments in Janus v. AFSCME. Rick Gates, former Trump campaign official and lapdog to Paul Manafort, gets rolled. Missouri Governor Eric Greitens thinks threatening his mistress with naked bondage pictures will keep her mouth shut. Instead, she says #MeToo and exposes him. A nation of immigrants? Not anymore, as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services alters its mission.
In Pennsylvania, all hell broke loose at the State Supreme Court released new Congressional maps. PA GOP gets aid from Senator Pat Toomey (who may or may not be of this planet), in a push to impeach the justices, claiming their imposition of new Congressional maps is “unconstitutional” and “a power grab.” The new maps are VERY interesting, especially if we look at Greg Edwards’ campaign in the new Lehigh Valley district. Rick Saccone will go bye-bye. Interim PASSHE Chancellor Karen Whitney decides the best way to argue for the public higher education is to: 1) raise tuition; 2) say faculty are arrogant; and, 3) claim that students really don’t care about their educational experience, they just want a damn degree. Really? In budget hearings this week, State Senator Scott Wagner says he wants to shut down PASSHE universities. PA Student Power Network launches CollegeForAllPA.org. The statewide student group is pressuring lawmakers and candidates to sign a pledge for free college tuition. And, it’s PSSA testing time. Kevin gives a testimonial.
In today’s Last Call: Sean gets dragged into an alt-right pissing match on Twitter. Any story that begins with “A Trumper challenges a Nazi to a fight and…” has got to be good. What’s up with the patriarchal, neo-colonialist race to Mars? We talk about Marcie Bianco’s excellent piece on NBC digital about just that. Saucony Creek plans to open a taproom at Franklin Street Station in Reading. They are also taking ticket orders for their release of The Unicorn on March 3. They’re also celebrating their 5th birthday! Free Will releases a double IPA, “Orange Colored Malcontent,” and it’s freaking amazing. And, Sean is given a can of Cushwa. Yep, that’s a brewery that you should know about.
