Dave Meserve, former City Council member in Arcata, California, talks about the federal court overturning the ballot measures Meserve wrote which banned military recruiters from contacting underage teens.

The former Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee talks about the ongoing fight, and Arnold’s plans to blow up the Waste Management Board (where Laird now works) even though it gets no revenue from the state general fund. Peter B. also talks with Roger Shuler of about the case of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, who was railroaded into prison by pals of Karl Rove and is getting stiff-armed by the Obama Justice Department.
