First there is the Intro from Kim and then the 99 Report at 6:30PM and then we get our Wonk on with Perry @mommapolitico does Kitchen Table Politics. Perry has been doing a great job keeping up with the GOP antics and Debates. ( 99Report is continuing focus on #OccupyStudentDebt and #OccupyForeclosures and #OccupyingTheDream that starts Jan16th and updates will be posted on the 99 Report Blog).
We have such Great Guests tonight....
Guest During the 99 Report :::
Please read Matt Bieber's Post about His Removal and Arrest at a Romney Event on January 9th....in New Hampshire.
I am having a special guest during the 99 Report at 6:45PM , a Divinity Student from Harvard went to NH to watch and be a part of the Primary Process there and had an Experience that needs to be heard. Matt Bieber is a eloquent young man that was removed from a Romney Event and then arrested. There are many questions about how this situation was handled and why he was arrested. Is Romney "Hiring" Police Departments to Work Security at his events at Private Settings ? Is that legal ? Is Romney allowed to have Citizens arrested ? Is Romney allowed to suspend the Constitution at his Events ? Shouldn't we be encouraging our young people to be a part of the process ? ( we will continue to follow his case, and his arraignment is 1/26/12)
And tonight during Perry's Kitchen Table Politics 7-7:30PM EST she has a special Video Interview with Chuck D of Public Enemy and Air America which she taped this weekend, so this is a special treat. ( Video will be posted here after the show. ) And you can also find @MrChuckD on twitter too. Perry did a great interview with him and she talked Music and Politics with him, and great that we have this chance to hear from him on the Politics of these Times....And his concerns about Homelessness and his efforts and work to Give Back. Do go to his website and see how he is working to use his music and political Voice to give back. And share the information about Operation Skid Row. His Concert Series Starts January 15th In Southern California to raise awareness and funds and support for Homelessness Operation Skid Row Give Back Festival is inspiring and getting it done.
This is the video of @mommapolitico interviewing ChuckD at a record store in Ventura, there is a little background noise, but listen closely and turn up the volume, Chuck is still political and so accurate on the issues, and he's talking about giving back with his latest project and tour working with other musicians to help Homeless in LA and California. #OccupySkidRow

From The David Dance Website This Synopsis:
"Set in a cold winter in Buffalo, New York “The David Dance” tells the story of siblings, David and Kate Patrone. David is the host of a local radio show called “Gay Talk”, which usually focuses on such breezy topics as “Body-Piercing: Fashion or Faux pas?” Kate is a thrice divorced banker with a yen for Schumann and cats. Though they are both successful in their own right, they share a secret inadequacy about themselves. Kate decides to adopt an orphan in Brazil and asks David to be the father figure. David grapples with his self doubts about this while courting an amiable technical assistant who also moonlights as drummer for an all-lesbian rock band. Told from present to past and back again, we experience the bittersweet life of a man as he struggles to pull its colorful pieces together. "
