Jesse and I were joined in the studio by Mark Bevilaqua, Mitch Koebke, and Jay Gordon.

We also received multiple calls and tweets and chat messages especially from Jacqui Myers and Miguel Adams (Speak-Up-Florida: for the Movement to End the New Jim Crow)

Tune in to listen to Adrian Wyllie, Libertarian candidate for Governor of Florida, discuss his campaign and the issues that set him apart from the other candidates with Jesse and me. We hope to get callers too and especially welcome socialists/greens who have little representation in Florida (or the US for that matter) and who are the other side of the real political debate.

My son Felix was in the studio to lead a discussion on the education system. He solicited a bunch of very insightful comments and complaints from some of his fellow students at Winter Park High School and it was very encouraging to see how smart the young’uns are (not just MY boy… though he’s pretty damn smart for sure!).

I personally, despite being a 48 years old geezer, am tired of people blaming the young for all the crap society WE created: Solidarity is our only hope and that should include INTER-GENERATIONAL solidarity too. 

Felix gave a shout out to a few of his WPH friends who gave us specific contributions: Kate, Riley, Nicky, Parker, …

Anheuser-Busch and distributors have basically paid their good ol’ boy Republican lackeys in the Florida legislature to tack on attachments to a bill that will legalize 64 oz growlers. The problem is these attachments include regulations on small brewery tap and tasting rooms. These regulations will hurt industry growth and small businesses trying to expand, and some brewers fear that it might even put some smaller operations out of business. So much for deregulation and pro-business Republicans.

Why don’t we just be real and recognize that pro-business means “pro-big business?”

If you live in Florida and you’d like to try and make a difference, please go to the two links below! Find your state senator and representative and tell him or her that you’re pro-64 oz growlers and that you’re sick of government putting their sticky little fingers in your beers!
