Climate Change Challenge

by JeffStrate on March 8, 2017 · 0 comments

 

The March edition of Democratic Visions is concerned with climate change.  Dr. Eric Grimsrud, atmospheric chemist and Montana State University Professor Emeritus, shares his perspectives on the consequences of mankind’s slow response to the challenge of global warming and highlights two tools that might help, if it is not already too late,  1) the divestment of funds from the fossil fuel industry and 2) a carbon tax.   Grimsrud  exhibits the vinegary rake that comes with working at a small town newspaper, in this instance, The Zumbrota News Record.   During his high school years, Grimsrud, an atmospheric scientist to be, set type for his publisher editor Father.

Democratic Visions One-on-One

by JeffStrate on December 29, 2016 · 0 comments

What happend? What's next?

The Uptake, the citizen driven, online, news service, was “baptized” during the tumultuous, September 2008 Republican Party Convention at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.  That’s the G.O.P. convention associated with un-announced search warrants, the torching of squad cars, the arrest of more than 300 protestors including journalists, roughed-up demonstrators and conventioneers; that’s the one that nominated John McCain and placed a tiara on Sarah Palin as its VP candidate to an amused and bemused electorate.

 

Two months later, voters, Obama and Biden solved that problem.

 

This past election season, neither Sanders or Clinton and Kaine were provided a position to help solve the Trump problem.  With DT’s carnival about to enter the big top’s center ring, America’s political culture continues to morph into the kitsch world of a John Waters film.  The cynical fun, however, is now a real nightmare.

 

The Uptake executive producer Mike McIntee  joined Tim O’Brien for a 22 minute, one-on-one, Democratic Visions meet-up on December 19th.  Much has since happened.  The following day, McIntee was carting office and streaming gear into the renovated press bunker at the Minnesota Capitol.   Six days later, the StarTribune reported that Amy Klobuchar had told it that she would run in 2018 for re-election to the U.S. Senate and not for Governor.   A few days after that, the President-Elect was defending Israel’s settlement policies and damning Kerry and Obama via tweets. Only the tandem deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds have dimmed these recent Twitter flare-ups.

 

That said, the new edition of Democratic Visions features Mr. McIntee and Mr. O’Brien sharing still timely perspectives on  the life political as the informed and engaged adults that they are.    Mike and Tim have a lot to say about where we’ve been and where we’re headed, about the DFL, future DFL leadership, the national Democrats and DT.

 

The second and third courses of the viewing include a visual essay set inside the winter time, tropical redoubt of the Como Conservatory and some ruminating by truck driver, critic-at-large Bruce Baird.

A post election respite

by JeffStrate on November 15, 2016 · 0 comments

The Thanksgiving edition of Democratic Visions provides DFLers and progressives with respite from the cross-talking panels of post-election, conjecturing TV and radio pundits and Democrat Party spin meisters who have been getting it wrong ever since Bernie tossed his hat into the presidential candidate ring.

 

But first, this week the StarTribune has published commentaries by two of our favorite guests.
 

coupled image of Tharwat and Timmer

TV host Ahmed Tharwat and blogger Steve Timmer.

LeftMN’s Steve Timmer of Edina writes about the possibility of Keith Ellison becoming chair of the Democratic National Committee. Read “In search of a DNR Chair” here. BelAhdan’s Ahmed Tharwat of Minnetonka suggests that American Muslims need a survival guide. Tharwat’s sly think pieces regularly infuriate the trolling hyenas in the Strib’s reader comments section. Read it here.

The new Democratic Visions opens with a video essay of mostly west suburban natural settings underscored by Aaron Copeland’s “Appalachian Spring” and continues with a variety of guests from this year’s video vault.   Eden Prairie Council member Ron Case talks about his favorite hamlet of cul-de-sacs, McMansions, SW Light Rail, open spaces, diversity and good government. Humorist Jon Spayde returns as a spacey and failed TED talker who claims that the digital age is “so over, so yesterday.”   We have also dusted off an April 2016 chat between DFL activist and Democratic Visions host Tim O’Brien and blogger Steve Timmer that foreshadowed a presidential-elect Donald Trump.

Meanwhile in MN CD 3 …

by JeffStrate on October 17, 2016 · 3 comments

Image of Bonoff and Paulsen

Terri Bonoff and Erik Paulsen

A KSTP/SurveyUSA poll published late last week on Tom Hauser’s At Issue political analysis program, shows GOP, right wing incumbent Erik Paulsen with an eleven point lead over DFL endorsed challenger Terri Bonoff.
 

“After several months of withering attacks trying to tie him to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Erik Paulsen holds a commanding lead in his race with 3rd District challenger Terri Bonoff. In our exclusive KSTP/SurveyUSA poll, Paulsen leads Bonoff 49 percent to 38 percent. Another 13 percent remain undecided.”

Steven Schier, the ever available pundit from Carleton College, notes in the October 16, 2016  KSTP-TV News web article about the poll that voters are not associating Mr. Paulsen with Mr. Trump.   That is clearly the case.  Terri’s team needs to do a quick and major re-direction on what will work during the next three weeks.

The article does not mention the dump trucks of misleading, anti-Bonoff mailers that arrive at our Eden Prairie (CD 3) home or refer to the equally smelly and un-credible, anti-Bonoff spots that pop up on television and the internet.

This month Democratic Visions features a fifteen minute discussion between Terri Bonoff and Ted O’Brien and a Junk Yard Democrats’ video.  With “He Talks the Line,” the boys re-purpose a Johnny Cash classic to comment on Mr. Paulsen’s record.

The early summer edition of Democratic Visions features mostly segments that we had recorded in April and May but just couldn’t fit into our spring line-ups.  Each program must come in a bit south of 30 minutes for airing on various cable systems.

 

30 minutes is an eternity in the tweet and text world and the issues considered on this particular edition have been ruminated about hundreds of times by others in our increasingly fractured universe of new and old media. But proposed copper pit mining in Northern Minnesota, high student loan debts, Trump, Ventura, Reagan and the under informed are here being considered by our ruminators:   DFL elders Tim O’Brien and blogger Steve Timmer and The Theater of Public Policy’s chief  interrogator Tane Danger and political analyst Bob Meek.   These are local guys here provided with a Charlie Rose type TV venue, albeit just a public access studio nested alongside an art gallery within the Bloomington Civic Center  – that is tended to by non-paid volunteers.

 

Tucked in at the 8’/30″ mark of the program is an initiative of our ongoing mission to restore political humor to Minnesota television.  Our good friend Doug Lind has re-purposed some dusty political jokes.  We recorded him testing his musty slap shots out on a group of Eden Prairie High School millenials at the the “DFL Comedy Club.” We think the joint is located somewhere in Hopkins (a safe zone for progressives) but it could also be out in Carver County which is not a safe zone for the informed or liberal. Enjoy.

SWLRT Stations - N Mpls

 

The late spring edition of Democratic Visions features a discussion with transit equity advocate Kenya McKnight Ahad and myself on Southwest Light Rail, public transit and North Minneapolis.  There had been hopes that the Minnesota State Legislature would, before end-of-session, appropriate $135 million dollars for the project through bonding or at least pass a bill that would enable other agencies such as the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority to raise that amount.  That $135 million, the State’s comparatively small share of the $1.79 billion dollar project, is needed to complete a match to qualify Southwest Light Rail for $895 million dollars from the Federal Transit Administration.

 

Three Chambers of Commerce, the city councils of Minneapolis, St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Eden Prairie and most of the neighborhoods along the planned alignment are now hoping that a special legislative session will provide the $135 million along with, of course, other transportation needs.  During transportation, transit and infrastructure bill manuverings in the Legislature and opposition by some folks along the Kenilworth Corridor in Minneapolis and the Claremont residential complex in Minnetonka, media discussion of the impact of light rail and improved bus transit on North Minneapolis has been non-existent. I argue that North Minneapolitans will have the most to lose should lawmakers fail to act positively.  During our discussion, Kenya McKnight Ahad advises that good transit studies and plans incorporating light rail and improved bus connections for North Minneapolis within its corner of the metro area and beyond already exist.  What doesn’t exist, Ahad says, is a dependable manner and commitment to fund the plans.  This segment runs about 22 minutes.

Boy with collected litter.

A public service message from Democratic Visions.

The Star Tribune this morning reports:
 

A proposal to ban Minneapolis stores from handing out plastic bags — and require them to charge customers for paper bags — has cleared an important hurdle at City Hall.
 
Monday, following a lengthy public hearing, the City Council’s Health, Environment and Community Engagement committee voted 4-0 to forward the plan to the full council. It appears the plan may have enough support to pass the 13-member council; in addition to the four committee members who voted in favor of the plan, two other council members attended the meeting to voice their support. A fifth committee member, Council Member Andrew Johnson, expressed support for the plan but abstained from voting because he intends to work on an amendment that would make the policy more “consumer and business friendly.”’  Click here for the full story.

This is mighty fine news that I hope the full city council passes … and then the whole State of Minnesota needs similar legislation.  California’s currently stalled plastic bag law was prompted by several earlier municipal plastic bag laws.   State wide regulation made sense to businesses, regulators, environmentalists and legislators. But the California plastic bag law that was passed by the legislature, signed by Governor Brown and had been planned to be effected for large grocery chains and pharmacies on July 1, 2015 and for convenience and liquor stores on July 1, 2016 has been suspended pending a referendum vote this coming November 2016.
 
California stores would have been required to offer customers recycled paper bags or bags made of compostable material at a cost of at least 10 cents.  Folks on the state’s food-assistance program would not have to pay for the earth friendly bags.  The state of California was slated to provide $2 million in state-backed loans to help businesses transition to re-useables. But last year, plastic bag manufacturing industry opponents to the new law gathered enough valid voter signatures to force a November ballot referendum question on the law.  (More on this here.)
 
For the past three years Democratic Visions has been running this sly parody of a PBS nature documentary.  It was produced by Heal the Bay (Santa Monica) and is about the life cycle of a plastic bag and is voiced by Jeremy Irons.  We’ve tagged it with a Minnesota-based epilogue.

Overcoming Minnesota’s humor-challenged media

by JeffStrate on March 14, 2016 · 0 comments

Gov. Christie and The Donald

As Seen on TV

Our times are blessed with the most knowing, sharpest and laugh generating political satire since, well, maybe ever.  At least three minutes a week of Saturday Night Live earn occasional rank with more dependable flame and cream pie throwers John Oliver (Last Week Tonight-HBO), Bill Maher (Real Time with Bill Maher-HBO),  Trevor Noah (The Daily Show-Comedy Central), and the heritage TV net boys Fallon, Colbert, Kimmel, Meyers, et. al.   On-line, The Young Turks, The Onion, and Deep Rogue Ram (Vancouver) and hundreds more are uploading stuff.  The big players are pumped with teams of writers who get paid.  So too, some of the less dependable, online spit ballers.
 
Minnesota electronic media falls flat on political humor.  The guy with the cartoons on TPT’s Almanac and most of that weekly’s ‘humorists are very self-aware, limp and Saran-wrapped for consumption by Crocus Hill donors.  The annual roasts put on by MinnPost for raising bucks have the bite and wit of Almanac.  The highlight videos of these well-meaning MinnPost attempts at insider, comedy sketches are just brassy camouflage for humor-challenged, aging, media types.  When Keillor and his possums are the only ones in broadcast and broadband land serving up slices of tangy Minnesota onion, ones garnished with whimsy, we turn to, say, Sid Hartman.
 
Democratic Visions, a modest cable access show with no budget, occasionally pours vinegar on the life political.  In the past, MPP co-birther Eric Pusey has uncorked his incredulity to amusing affect.  In the months to come, retired KQ Morning Show, token liberal, Mike “Stretch” Gelfand and improv humorist Jon Spade will serve up encores.   Bruce Baird, however, makes his TV debut right here and now on Democratic Visions.  He and I react to Republican presidential candidate ads.  Being the Ed Wood of Minnesota political issues television, I am grateful to be of service to the progressive community.

My Problem with Huggy Democrats

by JeffStrate on February 15, 2016 · 1 comment

Image of MSNBC debate stage

Rachel Maddow hugging Bernie after a recent Hillary/Bernie ‘debate’ on MSNBC.

 

Over the past seven years I have recorded on my video cam a variety of DFL functions, conventions, rallies, town meetings and Senate District central committee meetings.  I have edited the raw video for segments on Democratic Visions, the public access TV program that I produce with the help of other, unpaid volunteers.

A few elected and rank and file partisans have mistakenly thought that I was a “tracker.”  I and my production colleagues are not trackers.  Trackers are those pale, silent and creepy gents who quietly place a tripod with a tiny, mounted camera at the back of a town meeting.  They are  hoping to record gaffes and clumsy sound bites that can be used against the progressives and liberals of this world.  Lefty organizations also employ trackers, but I am not one of them nor do I know anyone who is but I know a cockroach from a real video journalist.  One of Democratic Visions’ missions has been to capture and to share on cable access TV and its  YouTube channel  the joy, humor, thoughtfulness, diversity and humanity of being a lefty.   One cannot do that from a stationary tripod or from the voyeuristic employ of a cell phone with a peephole lens.

 

When I am at, say, a DFL convention, I am waltzing about with a serviceable Sony Handicam for different angles of the speakers, panelists, audience members, coffee sippers, applauders and getting shots at the sign-in, candidate and refreshment tables.  I look for moments that can be used to show our essences in our various degrees of genius, wit, gravity and serendipity.  The tracker, on the other hand, with the tiny camera on the tripod or, for that matter, the hired professional/institutional ‘media’ crew with their own tripods and tiny cameras at the back of the room, cannot make anyone look good.  In that respect, they have something in common with the non-partisan, gray ladies who run the League of Women Voters candidate forums.

 

I grimace when, say, some city council or legislature candidate begins her/his introductory remarks with an unctuously oily ‘I want to thank the League of Women Voters for inviting me to share with you tonight why I am seeking election and how I plan to give back to a community that my family and I love so very, very dearly.’   Well,  ‘Thanks’ for what?   The televised and streaming versions of the stilted and pinched LWV forums are of interest only to a candidate’s campaign manager and spouse, the weekly community newspaper editor and the occasional tracker (if permitted by the gray ladies to set up a tiny camera on a tripod). These, well intended League attempts to spark voter interest are as reliably dull as a Ford Focus coated in February road salt.   It is my view that the LWV is sucking the juice out of Minnesota’s brand of democracy.

 

That’s why I risk losing what little dignity I still retain as a veteran television producer and journalist by prancing about meetings, kneeling, standing on benches, laying flat on the floor, sneaking up behind the head table or poking my camera into a trio of gabbers.  I am attempting to gather video and sound that local politics, in spite of the muzzle of Minnesota Nice, the leash of the politically correct, and the flare of the Black Lives Matter movements of our times, do indeed have a pulse and an ethic richer than the stump speech or the calculated chit chat on Almanac or the bombastic teasers on FOX and CNN.

The current edition of Democratic Visions considers the perspectives of elders who were civil rights and educational activists in Alabama in 1965 and Pastor Paul Slack, a new generation, North Minneapolis pastor who is actively engaged in today’s social justice challenges.
 
This year has marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Selma/Montgomery peace marches; the martyrdom of six civil rights activists, the Voting Rights Act and voter registration drives in the South. A nearly forgotten, but massive grass roots initiative to help under-funded, southeast Alabama school districts, which was operated by Tuskegee Institute, was also part of the mix. Democratic Visions attended a reunion in October at St. Olaf College of some of the project’s veterans including its coordinator Dr. Bert Phillips. In a separate segment, Pastor Paul Slack, pastor of New Creation Church and President of ISAIAH, a faith-based, state-wide alliance of churches working on social justice issues, shares his perspectives on the black experience in today’s America.
