The latest (and greatest?) observations from Jim Hightower are only now available at our Substack website. Join us there!

You bought it, you own it–and that means if it broke, you can fix it, right? Not so fast! Turns out, the greedhead corporate makers of stuff from iPhones to John Deere tractors have made it illegal (!) for us consumers to fix our *own stuff* in an effort to bilk us out of even more money. This Tuesday, July 13 at 7 pm ET, Hightower will be joined at the Chat & Chew by Nathan Proctor of Public Interest Research Group, Willie Cade of Repair.org, and Walter Schweitzer of the Montana Farmers Union– all leaders of the fast-rising Right to Repair consumer movement. Grab a libation and come on down!
