This week’s Ring of Fire Radio, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and David Bender: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

This week on Ring of Fire Radio, Paul Schrade, friend and former advisor to Senator Robert F. Kennedy, joins us on the day when the RFK Community Schools will be dedicated in Los Angeles.  He’ll tell us about his 25 year effort to build a meaningful legacy to Senator Kennedy that’s based on teaching social justice to future generations.

Rolling Stone Magazine political correspondent Tim Dickinson will be here to tell us why President Obama deserves much more credit than he is receiving from his progressive critics, and why his first two years in office should be considered very successful.

Author Robert Scheer enters the Ring to explain how the disastrous policies of Ronald Reagan and his economic advisors led to the downfall of the entire US economy more than a quarter of a century after they we enacted.

And blogger David DeGraw will tell us how we can take back our democracy by arming ourselves with the proper tools – not with firearms and belligerence – but with knowledge and activism.
