The Bernie Buzz!!

.

This weekend on “Moyers & Company,” Bill Moyers talks with Bernie about the pressing issues facing the United States including the wealth and income gap, the disappearance of the middle class, attacks on Social Security, and the influence of big-money interests in American politics. In an extended preview, Bernie describes how “dialing for dollars” distorts our leaders’ perspectives on who they’re actually representing, and how money’s influence is transforming both our politics and society. “You’re looking at a nation with a grotesquely unequal distribution of wealth and income, tremendous economic power on Wall Street, and now added to all of that is big money interests -- the billionaires and corporations now buying elections,” Sanders tells Bill. “I fear very much that if we don’t turn this around, we’re heading toward an oligarchic form of society.”

The show will air Saturday at 7 p.m. on Vermont Public Television.

Both Sanders, and Moyers are great in their respective fields. I wish we had more people like them. Perhaps then, there would have been no need for OWS

Ah - yes an available transcript would be handy - I never much cared for note taking either.

Ok. Why not? I ain't lyin', ain't done nothin' wrong! And I fear no man!

I always stand up for what I believe. but this is unimportant unsubstantial discussion. Certainly off topic.

What do you think of Sen Sanders & Bill Moyers?
