Celebrating MPP’s Two Years

On December 3, 2010, in Democratic Visions, by tommy

Jeff Strate just sent the following note and graphic to the readers and writers of MPP, via email!

“As Minnesota Progressive Project celebrates its second anniversary, the Democratic Visions team hails MPP’s service to progressive thought, comment and action. Many, many thanks.”

Well, thank YOU, Jeff!

IMNSHO, Democratic Visions has become the best locally-produced political television talk show in Minnesota – due to the power of dedicated volunteers and the progressive movement. Democratic Visions is a once-a-month program and a production of DFL Senate District 42 (Eden Prairie & MInnetonka). It’s filmed at Comcast’s Southwest Community Television studio in Eden Prairie.

Joe Bodell and I (MPP) and The Cucking Stool’s Steve Timmer are featured on the current edition of Democratic Visions. Producer Jeff Strate and the Dem Vis crew make us look great on large flat screen TVs. (disclaimer-I’m the deisgnated go-fer “an associate producer”). This edition will only be re-broadcast for another 3 or 4 times before the holidays begin. Check Democratic Visions out on cable TV at the following times and channels:

Comcast Channel 15 – Hopkins, Minnetonka, Edina, Richfield and Eden Prairie Sundays at 9 p.m. and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.

Bloomington Cable Channel 16 – on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m.

MTN Channel 17- Minneapolis Sundays at 7 p.m.

Democratic Visions can be seen 24/7 on its YouTube Cnannel at http://www.youtube.com/user/DemocraticVisions.

Ladies and Gentlemen, yours truly – the ol’ TwoPutter – is Guest Hosting this afternoon’s Friday Edition of “Quick On The UpTake” from 5:00 to 6:00pm on AM-950 KTNF, The Voice of Minnesota. “Quick On The UpTake” Host Mike McIntee is busily preparing for the last Political Party State Convention; the IP Party is meeting in Bloomington tomorrow. I’ll be joined in studio by Spot from The Cucking Stool!

And, to no surprise, we’ll be talking about The State Supreme Court’s spanking of Gov. TBag for creating a problem by 1- signing the next biennium’s spending bills into law and then 2- vetoing the revenue bill to match “income” to said lawfully-enacted spending bills (“balance the budget”) and then 3- violating state law by unilaterally slashing spending on bills TBag just signed; which, of course, was 4- BEFORE the start of the next biennium.

Spot has several great posts over at The Cucking Stool on TBag getting spanked; you’ll want to listen in to Spot’s take on this! As always, call 952-946-6205 to join the conversation!

As always on Friday’s Edition of Quick On The UpTake, we’ll also be getting a call from Dane Smith from GrowthAndJustice.org.

And just because we can, we’ll be giving away one copy of “False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story (Volume 1), to one lucky listener — courtesy of AM-950 KTNF sponsor Common Good Books – so, pay attention and call in when asked!!!

Tomorrow (Saturday, May 8th), the ol’ TwoPutter will be Guest Hosting Radio Cafe with Cathy Hauser from 2:00 to 3:00 pm on AM950 – KTNF. I’ll be joined in-studio by Dusty Trice!

And we’ll be talking with Matt Entenza!
