Just because i feel like it's just dominated by people who are so disconnected from the actual issues. That are going on that. It's kind of irrelevant to the work that i do. I think when. I saw this happen in cambridge. I've mentioned i've mentioned out also live in central square cambridge. And when i saw that happen you know in my own city. That's considered to be the most aggressive in the country. I think that really hit me that like these spaces are not welcoming to young people to queer people to anyone from any sort of Background And democrats that claim to you know stanford equity are really just recreating the same. Inequities all these systems so I'm really excited to learn and start exploring ways to organize outside of the party. I am number but If these spaces aren't welcoming that's there's there's so many other problems too with the democratic party about the bare minimum of these species aren't welcoming for the same identities that the democratic party claims to protect than. I think. There's really nothing that would make me to to get involved. Your continued us support sad. It's like lost opportunity because of what's going on right now we're getting comments on our facebook live to you know jeff says he left the party over as well. Yeah i wanted to actually add.

"Boston has lost another pioneering legend. Doris bundy died yesterday of cancer at her home. She was eighty-seven bundy was the first black woman elected to the state house of representatives and the first black woman to run the boston housing authority. She was also a mentor. And a friend to many including marie saint floor herself. A former massachusetts state representative now a principal at saint floor communications. Murray thanks for joining us. Welcome to radio boston. Good to be with you to you. Marie you lost a friend and mentor. I'm sorry for your loss. How are you. i'm i'm i'm fine. I think that all of us who are women who were legislators lost the an amazing mentor in an amazing leader today and You know we know comes but when it comes you really feel it and you have regrets that you've stayed as connected as you'd like to have stayed connected in so yeah it's it's a sad day but i'm happy to be able to celebrate her life and i thank her family for sharing her with us all these years. When did you first meet her. And can you tell us a little bit about door. Spongy so i have to tell you. I was eleven years old when i first saw a bar. Doris bundy on television. Now i'll explain. And i think she had just eventually just become state right back in the old days. You only had one. Tv in the house and so you are watching whatever your parents were watching at that time and you here was this woman who was going in to become a state representative in this in in massachusetts as she grew up right in audit. You know she. She had been living in orchard park. I went to saint patrick's so was right down the street. Rama where i went to school every day. There was a sub shop at dudley. That used to walk so you knew you knew the area. So he was this woman who was essentially you know in in places that you identified walked. Who is now going to be in the in the halls of power mistake and she was this tall she was poised in. That was my first introduction. On then i became a state rep and i became a state rep and what i love about her. I did not respond the as an adult. And she reached out on my. I remember when i was running. Decided to run for office. There were a number of people. I spoke with and she offered her wisdom. I remembered when life got rough in the legislature. And i needed questions in that was seeking direction. She's a person that you pick up the phone and you could talk to. And she would share her wisdom. That that's how i remember her. And then she modeled a lot of the things that i think some of us tried to do. I'm once we were in office. What kind of modeling murray. So for me. Dr is modeled. What it meant onto work across the divides weather. It's across racial lines She she she modeled. That i mean you saw that in her work in the legislature. You saw that in her work in the boston housing authority. She was willing to listen. I mean the leadership of the boston housing authority. While she was there was predominantly white. She was she had a clear vision about what she wanted to elevate the rights of people of color in that space but she again She would probably she would call them on formidable adversaries but she was up to the challenge and she was willing to sit listen and work through it one of the things. I never observed due to demonize. That's not was not her style. She was firm to knew what she wanted to go and she left the table always with the door open that i learned from her. I really did. I get this sense marie that she was really tough. Steely she came to boston. According to the globe in nineteen fifty-three three with ninety eight cents to her name at one point. She really locked horns with boston. Mayor kevin white when she was at the boston housing authority. He was a formidable opponent. And in the end through the courts. She won her dispute with him about her leadership at the boston housing authority. She helped integrate Boston public housing. Did you see her as a as a tough woman. And did she model that for other black women leaders coming up behind her as well to me she was. She was smart and she was donations. And what. I appreciate about her that she stood in her power so yeah kevin white could have had his point of view. She had hers two and she believes she was right and she acted on it. Issue was not boastful. She just acted in did what she believed So yeah i think she was a formidable opponent but she but she worked to build consensus so she was acting with the support of those on She was representing so. Unfortunately i you know. I you know a mayor while at the time did not respect that she was tough event. She'd smile. I mean. I remember for me. Remember a smile you know and particularly when she wanted to probe you on something further because she knew there was more there and you could see it so she. She's she's not she she. You might misjudge because you look at or height and you then you see that. She's a woman and it would be to your detriment if you misjudge the staleness of her character on our intellect in her tenacity

His whole career he he may not have had the credibility he had when he launched his presidential race ao see. Some of these young war more Progressive Democrats definitely have some good policies. There's this common ground. More radical socialist like myself can work with them on but. Fundamentally, they believe in that the system can be reformed and.

"The legal program recently, the activist in the community in some of the Cannabis Control Commission started. Listening to the people and things are starting to get better in some respects. But. The whole thing was botched from the beginning because of the governor and the Speaker of the House they thought that they were smarter than what was voted in and they felt like they could rewrite it, make it more restrictive, which made it more expensive for patients, which made it more expensive for applicants, which made it only about rich people in the industry and not letting. The traditional market move legal. You know, it's not what we wanted. It's not locals out of state big money coming in. And this happens in so many industries in so many instances in this state of Massachusetts. In it's because of the speaker of the house, it's because of the people that support them, which are a lot of times. Or means mainstream mainstay Democrats that just vote whatever the party leader tells them to vote. Whatever the money tells them to vote whatever the interest thousand to vote. In and things like police reform are important I mean I'm all about police reform especially good police reform One of the things that I see you know we hear about defunding the police we hear a lot about the police show police accountability. I would like to see more police boards, local boards where you know every city town has a local citizen review panel of the police of they can hear complaints may have some power to actually take action against bad officers number one and things get more transparent and it's not just about the police chief protecting his force. You know it's it's about actually ensuring the police force is the best didn't local city in town, and that comes from the citizens I feel like I also, I'd like to see. that. They be there they're forced like there's there's no pro union like I said, you have cw fourteen forty five is supporting us. You mentioned earlier a lot of the fleece unions.

There are different than what you find in the suburbs in the more know places outside the one, twenty, eight Luke even or outside in certain areas of Massachusetts like red states in a lot of the Democrats are actually Republicans.

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses
"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.
