Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

Well, I'm still buzzing from that Texas filibuster! What great material for yesterday's show! If you're me, and you're sitting all alone and there's virtually no way for anyone to tell you to shut up about parliamentary procedure, that is.

Today will be the last show before taking a break next week to "spend more time with my family," by which I mean I will literally be spending more time with my family. There's lots of great material from the recently concluded Netroots Nation convention in San Jose in the Netroots Radio archive that's ready to roll in my place, so do tune in, and maybe you'll catch a panel or two you might have missed. Which, again, if you're me, means all of them.

Oh, the first world problems I have.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Immigration Reform & Deficits: Any Thoughts (0+ / 0-)

    I can't help it!  I have to point out that some of the same Republican Senators who were opposing the Immigration Bill because it would cost too much and expand the deficit (which was projected by the CBO to be the exact opposite), have absolutely no problem with massively increasing the cost of the bill with unnecessary increases in border agents and fencing.  Amazing hippocracy!  But why am I not surprised.

  •  Just got a piece of propaganda from my (0+ / 0-)

    Republican member of the House, Bill Shuster.  In it he uses the allegations by Issa, that "the IRS has violated the public trust by engaging in specific targeting of conservative groups that submitted 501(c)4 applications." as a reason to introduce H. R.2125, the No IRS Implementation of Obamacare Act, to prevent the IRS from implementing or enforcing Obamacare and to block funding for Obamacare."

    I couldn't believe that I actually received this as a constituent.  Not only is he basing this legislation on inaccurate and out of date information and drawing a false connection between this and Obamacare funding, but he's actually trumpeting this as a legitimate activity.

    This is an example of the idiocy that is business as usual in the Republican controlled House.  Obstruction and time wasting at its best.  I'm so frustrated that gerrymandering means that this idiot will never be challenged!

  •  Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is a Big issue (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    in PA.  The system has been in place with little modernization since Prohibition.  Wine and liquor is currently sold in state owned and operated "state stores" which are staffed by unionized employees of the PA state government.  Beer is sold by beer distributors, that are privately licensed and owned. They can't sell wine or hard liquor. In addition, wineries are allowed to sell products through on site retail stores at the wineries and many bars can sell six packs, but not wine or hard liquor.

     These stores are not open on Sundays or federal and state government holidays, which is frustrating for many residents.  Also, wine deliveries by mail order "wine of the month clubs" are strictly limited, though the state operates an online store that offers delivery.  Alcohol is heavily taxed and regulated and licenses to sell alcoholic beverages in bars and restaurants are strictly limited so they are extremely expensive and difficult to obtain  If a restaurant closes, its liquor license is often its most valuable asset and new licensees are subject to background checks akin to gaming licenses elsewhere.

    The system could definitely use modernization and recent attempts have been made to sell wine and liquor in grocery stores on an limited experimental basis.  Republicans, including Corbett want complete privatization.  Opponents say that this will decrease tax revenue, increase underage drinking due to loosened control.  Unions oppose it because most current staff is unionized while private store employees would not be.  I hope this gives you some background,if you care.

      Well, ones that make a story that's otherwise a bit of a head scratcher into something with issues I can understand, anyway.

        they're now arresting teenagers for buying canned sparkling water in your state of VA.  I hope this isn't part of the Corbett privatization plan too!  Corbett, like most current Republican politicians seems to love privatizing stuff.

        As I see it there are two sides to the LCB issue.  The system needs to be modernized to allow retailers to accommodate customers who want to buy beer and wine on Sundays and in the evenings, but there does need to be a mechanism to prevent sales to minors.  Most of the people I know who are for privatization say that it will be good for business because it will mean that more restaurants can serve and sell alcohol because licenses will become more available and reasonably priced as will alcoholic beverages because they are sold in more outlets.  

        Opponents say that it will increase the likelihood of underage drinking and alcohol related accidents, by making the laws more difficult to enforce in a greater number of outlets.  Also, unions oppose privatization because LCB employees are state employee that are unionized.  There's also a store religious lobby that likes that it's difficult to buy alcohol on Sundays.  

        It will be interesting to see how this issue plays out as the PA governor's race unfolds.  Corbett is currently down in the polls with only about a 35 percent approval so he needs all the help he can get.  Even the alcoholic voters.  I wonder if a gun license will be acceptable as proof of age to buy beer, since I think its one of the acceptable forms of PA voter ID?

        Just thought I'd give you something to amuse you while on your vacation.  Have a good week off.  I'll be listening when you return to the web.
