Welcome back to REPO where we set our sites on the new bills enacted in Georgia to restrict voters rights. We talk about the impact historically as well as what it means to society and businesses if they stand on the outside not throwing their hat in the ring for their consumers and employees.
The team ends this 2 part session with our take on white supremacy and racism. We debate the way to deal with it and E coined a new phrase, "Tanks for Racist" Listen all the way through, because we end this session with a lively discussion on the merits of this policy similar to toys for tots.
Happy New year!!This is Repo's fourth year and we start this year with confusion and relief. The team gets together with a rapid fire recap of the events from the recount, insurrection and the inability of the democrats to fight back. This 2 part session starts the year off with our thoughts pinging off the walls and microphones.
The team ends the discussion with our frustration with politics in general and what should we look forward to with the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party. Is money still going to dictate how elections are ran and won? Are we looking for the right candidates or is it the old politicians still running Congress and fooling the electorate?
We return with the election night emotional rollercoaster as well as fear for our country falling down further. We continue with our assessment of the DNC and if we would see the Democratic Party take advantage of the new found power they have or will they cower again and give in to the republicans.
Welcome back to the REPO team getting in our thoughts for the Election. We split it up into a before during and after. We naturally critique the Democrat's for their weakness but criticize both sides for the dilemma we are in as a nation.
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished
The Swamp is an American documentary film about the fundraising and political culture on Capitol Hill and in Washington, DC. it chronicles the activities of three Republican congressmen: Matt Gaetz, Thomas Massie and Ken Buck who are outsiders to dominant party patronage system
We flip from the basics politics of the day and talk about one of E’s favorite activity. Sports. So much of our everyday social and professional life circles around sports that we wanted to have a segment on it. We talk about school safety and the rent and mortgage moratorium.
The team starts back up with trying to define what states are more relevant than others and then we talk about the elephants in the room the civil unrest and the military occupying cities. We also give props to "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder and how we should follow this play book to look out for dictatorships.
We end with our personal contribution to Black Lives Matter and how anyone and everyone should do something
