    This evening, we covered the terms and duties of many public offices being sought around our state by Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and quite a few independents. We also reported back from the Green Party of Texas state convention, held near San Antonio the preceding weekend; this includes a 7 minute speech by Dr. Jill Stein (http://www.jillstein.org ), presumptive Green Party candidate for US President. Our guests talking us through all this: David Collins, candidate for US Senate (http://www.NewMenu.org/DavidCollins ), David Courtney, candidate for State Senate District 17 (http://www.TakingBackDemocracy.com ), and Carlos Villalobos, candidate for Harris County Precinct 1 Constable (CarlosVillalobosPTM@gmail.com ).

        For this show we chose to pursue the erosion of our rights as individuals to follow our conscience. How far should we allow government to tell us what to do? And what not to do? And indeed, what role should government play in our lives? Our guests were Burke Moore (Radical Houston Lawyer) and Bob Buzzanco (University of Houston Professor of History). We closed with a promo for the Houston Palestine Film Festival (http://www.hpff.org ) with Jackie and Khalil as guests.

            We pushed our envelope for Greenwatch this time. We had three segments, including two music sets. First off, Dean Becker, of http://www.drugtruth.net talked about the failure of the new prohibition. Following that, we had Herman Garcia and Brenda Shaw talking about a great event for this weekend, the 420 Festival. Their announcement was bracketed by two sets of musicians (to whom we apologize for not having been able to get better microphones, hey, it's a low budget studio, call Houston City Council and tell them to force the cable companies to cough up some money!): Stevie MuRee & Nitram of http://BerylGradyBand.com , and Robin Kirby & Sam Walke, of http://reverbnation.com/RobinKirby . Great music! We followed that with an update about Occupy Houston, including information about local actions around http://May1st.org a celebration of international labor day; guests we Alice Melendez, Jamin Stocker, Jay Spliff. See also http://OccupyHouston.org for ongoing updates. This originally aired on Public Access TV in Houston, April 16, 2012 (local cable and the world wide web).

              Has it really been two years since we did a show promoting Single Payer Health Care? Well, it's in the news again. The week before we aired this, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) held hearings about the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, often disparagingly referred to as "Obamacare"). Attorneys General for over half the states in the US argued against the "universal mandate" (another code). Most Green Party members feel that the Act did not go far enough, that in fact it did more to preserve for-profit health care than it did to move us toward something like Medicare for all, what we call "Everybody in, nobody out." Our three guests have promoted Single Payer Health Care for years, and appeared before on our show March 24, 2010 (see archives), right after the passage of the ACA. They are all members of Health Care For All Texas (http://www.hcfat.org ): Dr. Christine Adams; Ken Kenegos, R.N.; and Peg Nosek, Ph.D. They also mention favorably Physicians for a National Health Program (http://www.pnhp.org ). Hear their thoughts now, two years later, while the struggle continues for Health Care for ALL. This originally aired on Public Access TV in Houston, April 2, 2012 (local cable and the world wide web).
