Permanently capitalizing the “P” in Presumptive Nominee, the Texas primary shoved Mitt Romney right over the delegate precipice. And now with the nomination locked up tighter than a rusted pickle jar 20,000 leagues beneath the sea, the campaign has taken a sudden turn towards the nebulous. Candidates don’t make mistakes in the murky bog of summer. Even when they do, the atmosphere is too hazy to notice.
On the next Your Call, It’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we'll bring back a conversation Rose Aguilar had with Paul Mason, BBC Newsnight economics editor and the author of "Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions." Mason believes that from Tahrir Square to Zuccotti Park, advanced forms of communication have created a new relationship between the media and millions of people who are standing up for economic justice and freedom. It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
On June 5th, San Franciscans will be voting on many things, one of which has to do with their trash.
Since the 1930s, the company Recology has been taking care of The City’s trash and recycling, with no competition. This year, proponents of Proposition A want to change that by opening up the city's trash collection and processing services to a competitive bidding process. Other companies – even out of state ones – would have the chance to bid for the job.
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the two statewide ballot measures to increase the taxes on cigarettes and to change term limits for state legislators. Voters will also vote on the 2012 presidential contest, and local and statewide races. What’s at stake? What questions do you have? Join us live at 10 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.
