Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week: author Jonathan Tasini will be here to tell us the real threat to the future of the American economy, and believe it or not, it isn’t the national debt.

Author David Neiwert will be joining us to discuss how the eliminationist rhetoric from the Right helped fuel the flames that led to last weekend’s disastrous attacks.

Peter Lehner from the NRDC will be here to give us some insight into the government’s new report on the causes of the BP oil spill that almost destroyed the Gulf of Mexico. 

And Linda Lipsen, the CEO of the American Association for Justice, will be joining us to talk about how the US Chamber of Commerce is restricting access to the courtroom for average citizens, but filing a record number of lawsuits on behalf of their corporate buddies.
