Chris Hayes Talks with Thomas Piketty

Chris talks to the hot, happening, economist (words that don’t usually go together) Thomas Piketty, French economics professor and author of “Capital in the 21st Century”. This is a long interview that I don’t believe aired on All In, I think it’s just online. Too bad. Very interesting, worth the time. Gonna get his book for sure.

Family Values Crowd Cheers Breaking Up a Family

The crowd at this Republican representative’s townhall cheered when Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) told a young girl that the law says her undocumented father would have to be deported, separating her family. This Scott DesJarlais has a strong pro-family record as an anti-choice politician who had asked several mistresses to have abortions when they got pregnant by him. Which is what a married man should do to protect his first family, right? Out of respect for your wife alone, of course you’d have your mistress have an abortion, if you’re a good Christian family values guy.

Of course he won reelection last fall anyway because Amurika! And if you get reelected after that, well, you can pretty much do whatever.

You certainly don’t have to worry about the growing Latino vote and their influence, not in your district. And so what if your party never ever ever elects a chief executive ever again? You’ve got yours Jack! And you’re better fighting Democrats in the White House than you are governing anyway.
