Description

"You guys can go on and on about the Koch Brothers but there are some pretty bad Goldman Sachs Brothers" ~ Robert Scheer "If you tell me that I'm a self-hating Jew because I don't want to bomb women and children - and I don't want to bomb innocent civilians who have been kept in an outdoor prison - which is what Gaza is - NO! You believe in apartheid. You believe in racism. And I'm not with you. Period." ~ Robert Scheer On August 23, 2014 journalist Robert Scheer received the Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains (PDSMM), Tim Carpenter Courage Award for Lifetime Achievement.
