TMI 08/04/2023 – Bernie’s Call to Climate Action vs. the GOP House’s Climate Sabotage, Food Waste Reduction Can Have a Rebound Effect and more

We start by going through some email received, including one from Senator Bernie Sanders, where the Independent from Vermont looks at the Climate Crisis and asks “how did we get here?” More, he answers that same question with an overview of who knew this would happen, and for how long they’ve known. We then compare that with how the annual budget bills in Congress are being poisoned by GOP House members against taking action to fix the Climate Crisis.

Then we take a look at a new study of food waste reduction – not just the immediate impact that it would have on lowering the amount of food needed to feed people the way we are now, but also the rebound effect from there being more supply in the food chain. Finally, we go over how a focus on recycling (versus redcing and reusing) is not even remotely the best way to go about things.

TMI 07/28/2023 – College Towns and Counties Accross America Challenge the GOP at the Ballot Box, How Third Parties Do Not “Spoil” Dem or GOP Campaigns, and more

From beautiful Madison, Wisconsin to Asheville, North Carolina to Austin, Texas and far, far more, “college towns” have become the terror of the GOP in statewide elections, often compensating for the remainder of their states’ votes and then some. We explore how dramatically the tide has turned since just the year 2000, and what this points to from here.

Then, we take aim at the myth of third party candidates spoiling major party electoral campaigns. When you look at the numbers – ALL of the numbers that apply to the situation – you can see clearly that blaming candidates like Jill Stein for Hillary Clinton’s loss makes absolutely no sense.

TMI 01/14/2022 – Is Omicron Really “Milder”, GOP’s One-Party Rule in Wisconsin a Model for Everywhere Else, 2021’s Record Ocean Temps, More

Katherine J. Wu of the Atlantic tells us that virologists don’t mean what WE mean when they say the Omicron variant of COVID is “milder” – that misunderstanding is leading to a lot of poor public health decisions, letting our guard down around a still-fatal pandemic. Then, we look over Ryan Cooper’s piece in the week, entitled “Wisconsin’s One-Party Rule is What the GOP Wants Everywhere” and how, despite having a Democratic governor, virtually all policy in the state is under the thumb of the Republicans. Finally we review the findings that 2021 had the hottest ocean temperatures on record, and what that means for the future.

Rolling Stone published a blockbuster investigation that directly connects a number of GOP Congresspeople and the Trump Administration itself to the planning of the Capitol Attack of January 6th, 2021 – we go over the report in detail.

Then, if you wondered how Emergency Room visits get to be so expensive, a lobbying group called the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) have spent decades now twisting the regulations and then flouting even THOSE to make an illegal profit for the capitalists who back it.

TMI 07/16/2021 – Why CRT is Under Attack in K-12, The Unreal Cost of American Infrastructure, and What GOP Obstruction in Congress Means for Next Two Years

Given the complete ignorance almost everyone in the United States has about Critical Race Theory (except, of course, listeners of TMI), why is there such an outcry against it being taught in grade school? We examine. Then, we compare how little other countries spend compared to the USA for what amounts to better infrastructure, and why this is normally the case? Finally, we chart out the most likely course for the GOP and its devotion to Congressional obstruction over the next two years.

On this week’s TMI, we discuss how bipartisanship is being held up as more important than continuing to work on mitigating the disastrous effects of the climate crisis. We also air a first-hand report on the 2021 Trump rally in Lorain County, Ohio, and finally we examine a new study that illustrates how the collapse of Texas’ power grid was DESPITE the use of renewable energy types like solar and wind, not, as the right-wing media tried to claim, BECAUSE of them.

As efforts by the workforce at Amazon’s Bessemer, Alabama facility to join the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union ramp up, Amazon has been engaging in dirty tactics to frighten, intimidate and bully their workers out of voting yes. While these tactics are used far too commonly nationwide against unions. Amazon was using their immense power to involve local police, the postal service and more.

TMI 03/05/2021 – Trump Fractures the GOP, Neera Tanden Faces Consequences, Volvo and Others All-Electric in 2030, and the Defeat of the Flu

Donald Trump is out of office, no matter what Q Anon wants to claim, but his influence over the GOP remains strong… though not strong enough to have it entirely under his thumb. The tension is tearing the once-might GOP apart, and we discuss how.

Then, Neera Tanden, vocal opponent of the GOP and vicious enemy of the progressive movement in the USA is facing consequences for making very few friends outside of centrist President Joe Biden, her nominator. Next, we talk about how the auto industry is finally seeing the end of the line for the internal combustion engine, with companies like Volvo leading the… well, charge forward. Finally, thanks in no small part to how we’ve been social distancing and masking up to avoid COVID-19, it seems the 2020-2021 flu season was vanquished.
