On a late Monday afternoon, Dave Mustaine is feeling good at his Tennessee home. His neighbors' cows are mooing at each other -- loudly -- and when he gets on the phone with Rolling Stone, he reports, "I'm just dealing with life."

In May, the Megadeth frontman was diagnosed with cancer and needed to step away from the spotlight.

"I'm on the other side of the majority of the treatment, and I feel really strong," he says. "After the radiation, the guy said all of my test results looked amazing. You look like you're in a stage 1 and you're supposed to be in stage 3 right now.' And then the oncologist said the same thing: You look really strong.' So we kept moving through the process." read more

Big Philanthropy allows the affluent and their foundations to use private assets to influence public policy"an act of power that's largely unaccountable and that channels resources into pet projects and away from democratically agreed goals.

Reich, a professor of political science at Stanford and director of Stanford's McCoy Center of Ethics in Society, argues that charitable giving can serve the greater good if individual philanthropy is differentiated from private foundations, with the former supporting public resources such as education, science, and the arts, while the latter pursues innovations that enhance democratic experimentalism.

Reich is in conversation with Jane Mayer, author of Dark Money. read more

Thomas Frank: Clinton Democrats Hate the Left

[21:15]

On Reality Asserts Itself,

Thomas Frank author of "What's the Matter with Kansas" and "Listen LIberal",

tells host Paul Jay that Bill Clinton tried to drive the left from the party, saying were naive and could never win; now that Hillary lost they are blaming the left for the defeat.


Establishment and corporate Democrats hate organized labor, and hate labor and workers issues in general.

Republican Party = party of the 1% = The Plutocrats

Democratic Party = party of the 10% = The Professional Class

The difference between the two parties mainly has to do with culture issues and identity politics.

But when it comes to raw economics and wealth and money, there are no differences between the Republican party and the Democratic party.
