Abortion AI Episode Health Insurance Health Network One Joe Biden Leonardo Leo Medicaid Roe v. Wade SCOTUS WSUM

TMI 11/03/2023 – Leonardo Leo Funds Anti-Abortion in Ohio and Beyond, Biden Admin Executive Order Takes On AI, Health Network One Reinvents Profiting Off the Helpless and more

If you’ve never heard of Leonardo Leo and you believe that everyone, uterus-bearing or not, has the right to full bodily autonomy and access to health care (including abortion), then strap yourself in while I give you a quick tour of one of the biggest funders behind the SCOTUS majority that overturned Roe v. Wade and behind fighting Ohio from enacting a State Constitutional Amendment protecting abortion rights.

Then, in an enormous executive order, the Biden Administration is attempting to rein in AI before it is too late on a number of fronts – we examine the effort. Finally, we show how Health Network One has devised a NEW way to take public Medicaid money from Florida while giving Medicaid members WORSE coverage, all in the name of more profits!

Abortion Bidenomics Climate Economics Episode Inflation Joe Biden Planned Parenthood Ronald Reagan WSUM

TMI 09/22/2023 – How Ronald Reagan Planted an Inflation Trap for Joe Biden, Six of Nine Planetary Limits Are Outside the Safe Zone for Humanity, Planned Parenthood of WI to Provide Abortions and more

While Joe Biden campaigns on “Bidenomics”, the rest of us look at the economy and wonder how he and others in the political class of folks in Washington DC could be so out of touch. Turns out, it’s not entirely Biden’s fault, as we discover that a method for looking at inflation begun under Ronald Reagan helps ENSURE that the view from the top is ALWAYS rosier than the one from our home towns.

Then, an analysis of thousands of scientific studies, done to judge how the Earth is doing in nine essential metrics for humanity’s continuation, shows that of those nine limits for life to remain sustainable here, six of them have been breached. Finally, we give the glad news that, due to legal challenges showing the 1849 “ban” on abortion in Wisconsin is shaky at best, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has returned to providing the vital health care service of abortion.

The looming Climate Crisis feels like it is all too large and out of our control, but that’s simply not true. While the behavior of big corporations must be the largest part of the solution, we go over little things that you, yourself can do to help mitigate the hardship we all are facing from the climate.

Then, we expose the nonsense being peddled by anti-choice politicians and activists that 12 week abortion bans are “commonsense” and show just how cruel they truly are. Finally, we go over the plans, being made out in broad daylight, for turning the state of Kansas into a “Conservative Sanctuary”.

Abortion Episode Equality Freedom of the Press Hacking misinformation Roe v. Wade Starbucks union WSUM

TMI 02/25/2022 – View Source is Hacking, Right to Abortion is About Black Equality, Starbucks Loses Another Union Battle, More

The State of Missouri was badly embarrassed when a journalist discovered that the private details of thousands of Missouri teachers (including Social Security Numbers) was publicly accessible via the HTML code of a Missouri website, using the simple tool called “View Source” – this led to the journalist being labeled a “hacker” by the Governor. We discuss what happened in this gross misuse of political pressure.

Next, we talk about how, for white women the right to have an abortion was ruled in favor of medical “privacy”, making the legal grounds for it shaky and leaving out the number one factor that made it important to black women: equality. Finally, we give a briefing on how Starbucks has found itself on the losing end of another part of its employees’ push for union representation.

Abortion Big Oil Bitumen Episode Karen Middleton KeystoneXL NARAL Personhood Pro-choice SCOTUS Steve Horn Tar Sands Women's Rights WSUM

TMI 10/11/2014 – No KXL Required with Steve Horn, Colorado’s Push for “Personhood” with Karen Middleton, and SCOTUS Interruptus!

Usually, I prefer a relaxed attitude about things: no jacket required, open mic nights, etc. In the case of big oil, however, I make an exception: they want to bring Alberta tar sands bitumen to market, no Keystone XL required… and it looks like they’ve managed it. Steve Horn joins us to discuss how this came to be while we were focused on KXL.

Then, have you heard of “Personhood”? It’s the concept that a fertilized egg has the same rights as a full human being. It comes up every few years, but this time it’s been reframed in an insidious new way that tricked former opponents into backing it. Karen Middleton, Executive Director of NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado, joins us to help sort it out and pin down where in America is facing this new threat to women’s rights.

Finally, the Supreme Court is issuing rulings left and right, some good, some bad, and many confusing. We’ll go over some of what’s going on with the nation’s highest court. Catch all that and more on TMI for Saturday, October 11, 2014, airing live at noon Central on WSUM FM 91.7 and streaming live everywhere on http://wsum.org/ – get your dose of the Cure for the Common Media!

Abortion Dayna Long Episode FBI KeystoneXL National Organization for Women NOW TransCanada WSUM

TMI 3/15/2014: Defending the Rights of Pregnant Women with NOW and ISO, How the USA is Pushing for Canada’s Tar Sands, and more!

Dayna Long of NOW joins us via the phone today to talk about defending the rights of pregnant women, something that NOW is joining up with the ISO to discuss here in Madison on Wed, March 26th.

Then, we’ll delve into how the FBI and other American government entities have been supporting TransCanada in getting the Keystone XL Pipeline. If you think this is a matter of “Canada versus the USA” you’ve got another think coming: most of those benefiting are corporations who know no national allegiance, and have corrupted our governments to use our collective tax dollars for their ends, not ours.
