Randi Rhodes: The Occupation

Randi's on vacation this week (back Mon, 12/19), but our good friend Nicole Sandler will be occupying Randi's microphone today. She'll get into the latest on the Occupy movement and talk about getting money out of politics with some great guests, including:

Freelance writer and one of the better known faces of the Occupy movement, Jesse LaGreca (you may know him best by this unaired Fox News interview or perhaps as MinistryOfTruth on Daily Kos). Jesse is still involved in the movement, and he's got an update on what Occupy is evolving into, what the occupy movement stands for now - and what's likely to happen next.

Kim Doyle Wille of FeedTheUS.com will talk with Nicole about her latest project, #OccupyNorthPole, an effort to help poor kids by raising awareness that donations are way down for Santa requests this year.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will discuss the 'Saving American Democracy Amendment', his Constitutional amendment to get money out of politics, that mirrors the effort that began in the House by Rep. Ted Deutsch (D-FL). Sign Sen. Sanders' petition here. http://sanders.senate.gov/petition/?uid=f1c2660f-54b9-4193-86a4-ec2c39342c6c

Finally, Joshua Holland of Alternet will provide an update on the effort to Occupy the Ports on the West Coast, how successful it's been so far, and whether the Occupy movement is likely to attempt similar events in the future.
