Wednesday Chomsky

The 2016 US presidential election is shaping up to be a fascinating contest between reactionaries (Donald Trump and Ted Cruz), pro-establishment figures (Hillary Clinton) and a progressive of a selective kind (Bernie Sanders). The candidates’ views span a political range that is broader than usual, at least insofar as US political life goes, and several of them are taking positions that are rather unusual for mainstream US political culture. For example, GOP candidates are turning their backs on “free trade” agreements, while Sanders has emphasized issues like inequality, class and the connection between money and politics.

Do these developments speak of a changing United States? If so, what is the connection now between ideology, money in politics and elections? In this latest exclusive interview with Truthout, Noam Chomsky sheds light on these critical issues.

    Pete is over, off this week due to a work injury. He came over to catch up on “The Walking Dead.” He doesn’t have Direct TV at his new house, can’t afford it, but he can keep up with the Dead over here.

    I have to wait to watch Walking Dead episodes with Jill or she’ll kill me. We haven’t watched the last three, the ones Pete is catching up on.

    Pete watches it w/ headphones on so I won’t hear anything. I just left the kitchen, have Beef Stew simmering on the stove for a couple hours. During the 3rd hour I’ll add the carrots, celery and potatoes. House smells REALLY nice right now. There is basil and thyme in the pot, so mmmm….
