Tomorrow Jay Gordon will join us to talk about racism especially in movies and media but from an economic perspective. I guarantee we are going to go all out and probably say a lot of awful things about a lot of people so tune in };)

Here most recent film:

The Uterati, Fighting Back in the War on Women
In 2011 A.D., the word uterus was banned from the Florida House of Representatives, even as GOP members in that room were voting to regulate all uteruses across the state via 18 anti-choice bills.  As these extremists and their national leaders continue their war to limit access to contraception, women’s health care clinics, comprehensive sex education and abortion services, the Uterati are fighting mad and are fighting back!  Join Susannah Randolph, Sue Idtensohn, Sally Blackmun, Jenna Tosh, Martha Haynie and Joyce Hamilton Henry as they stand up against the GOP’s war on women, and stand up for the full emancipation of women everywhere.  Also featuring Rev. Bryan Fulwider, Joe Saunders, Shirley Jantzen, Pat Scully, Ida Eskamani, Alexa Nelen and and many others.
(NTSC / 51 minutes / 2012)
