  • access to medicine
  • environmental protections
  • food safety
  • consumer protections
  • labor protections
  • Internet freedom
  • Copyright law

The whole text of this far reaching international trade agreement has been kept secret from the public, until late last fall when it was leaked through wikileaks.

Positively Revolting on 01-28-11 Single Payer Health Care w/ Guest Dr. Paul Gorman

program date: 
Fri, 01/28/2011

Single Payer Health Care in -- The Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act

Isn't it time we acknowledge health care as a right?  What could possibly make it alright for there to be a profit motive in health care?  Why should we endlessly capitulate to the private insurance industry?  Why do people go without essential preventative care, while the executives take home millions of dollars? And why have we put up with this for so long?

There is a growing movement that is asking these sorts of questions.  This weekend US Representative John Conyers will be the keynote speaker at The Oregon Single Payer Conference.  The Conference takes place on Saturday, January 29th, 8:30 am - 4:30, at The First Unitarian Church in downtown Portland (at SW 12th & Main). The Conference will address new tactics for Single Payer advocates to gain public attention. There will be sessions that focus on moving theory into action, converting citizen activists into effective community advocates, and reviewing resources available to enhance these advocacy efforts.

Currently, State Rep. Michael Dembrow and State Senator Chip Shields are introducing the "Affordable Health Care for All Oregon Act".  And California, Pennsylvania, and Vermont also have pending legislation promoting single payer alternatives.  

Dr. Paul Gorman joined Ani and Lyn in the studio on 1-28-11.  Paul is a member of Mad as Hell Doctors and Physicians, and he is working hard to educate the public about the Single Payer model.

program date: 
Fri, 01/07/2011

2011, a year in review..... Ani and Lyn review the last seven days.  We think it's been a weird, and busy, first week of the year.  What's taken your attention this week?  Our discussion of topics included, but was not limited to:

How can we share information without becoming overwhelmed, especially when the news tends to the overwhelming side to begin with?  How are we supposed to integrate information about massive bird and fish die offs, and go about our normal business without demanding much better answers as to why?

Positively Revolting on 12-17-10: Winter Solstice - Delving into the Dark, and Welcoming the Sun

program date: 
Fri, 12/17/2010

So we've made it around the Sun, one more time.  The longest night of the year comes next week-- Winter Solstice is Tuesday, the 21st, with the Sun going into Capricorn at 3:38 PM, Pacific Time. 

This is one of the eight turning points of the pagan year.  The last was Samhain, more commonly known as Halloween.  At that time, the old year dies... the earth lies almost at rest around us for six weeks.  Now, at Winter Solstice, it is reborn.

In this time, all posibilities exist as we dive deep into the void to find our visions, and make them manifest.  In this longest night, we can access our subconscious selves, our dreams, and we can face our shadow selves.  In these things lay our personal power.

Your shadow self is not your enemy, the more you understand it, the more you know which parts serve you, and which parts you should cull.  And as the days lengthen, and the sun returns, so too can our visions take shape.  Your thoughts are seeds to cultivate in the weeks ahead.  Plant them well.

To celebrate the Solstice, Ani and Lyn combine their skills to bring you mini astro-tarot readings.  

And a good Solstice to all.

this morning's program: host & speaker

I am a daily KBOO listener; however, while todays speaker while speaking from the heart regarding her dismay over the Afganistan theater of war, she makes vague statements, with great emotion, but few references to facts, which could easily be woven into her statements to make them more illuminating, it would give more power to her rally cries. Tt feels as though I am simply listening to hyperbole LIKE ON CREEPY FOX NEWS!  The Hosts of the program, similarly, are never probing or asking for clarification of the important issue, an important question to probe is: "why ARE we there?".  This program is dithering, and the speaker is bland, unconvincing of any knowledge base, boring, 10th rate.  Additionally, this is typical of the "Positively Revolting" hour, I usually never tune in when I know these two hosts will be on, bcs. it is never a provoking program, it rarely reveals or provides any new information about anything.  If this program has to continue to be on at all, consider putting it on late at night....it is pablum. 

Good Sista' Bad Sista' on the other hand was a great relief for me on Friday morning's programing, those women are sharp, witty and smart. 

Do not dumb us down with this progam "Positively Revolting", it is a zero.

Pay Equality

I recently heard the argument that the pay differential between men and women is actually fair. This idea is based on the situation of women living longer than men but work the same period of time. This argument claims that the total difference of pay between men and women equals the cost of additional medical care spent for women in their senior years.

For example, let's say a man and a woman work the same number of years (about 40), in the same job with the same responsibilities, and the man makes 10% more than the woman. Say that the job pays (in constant dollars) an average of $30,000 over the forty years. The man makes $1.2 million over this period and the woman makes $1.08 million.

The difference is $120,000. Now at age 60, a man will generally live to be 75 and a woman will live to be 85. Most medical expenses are incurred in the last ten years of live. These costs are paid mostly by public funds through MediCare. The pay_inequality_is_fair argument holds that this $120,000 pay differential is used by society to pay the additional medical expenses that women use and men don't.

I realize that this argument will float like a lead zeppelin on the Positively Revolting community. However, you may want to be aware of it so you don't get blindsided by it in a public debate on the issue.

Thank you,
Alan in Portland

Where did Ani go?

Where did Ani go? I miss her!

I'm here, honest

Hi there, Melodie and I are hosting alternating weeks on Friday mornings, now. I hope you had a chance to hear my program with Norman Solomon last Friday, 11/7, but if you didn't, you can hear it online-- there is a link to the audio on this program page. I will host again on the 21st. Thanks so much for listening! with love & solidarity, ani

woo hoo!

Glad you're still involved in the show. Thanks for all that you do for our community!

much love, m

Wow... How about some positive feedback?

I must have picked a good week to start listening to KBOO. My unhealthy addiction to KPOJ has been shaken. What stirred me to radio hop was the recent clubbing and scrubbing of morning show co-host Heidi Tauber.

Thankfully (along with news I'm not hearing elsewhere) I struck gold with back to back to back mornings of call in shows which were right up my avenue. On Wednesday Barbara Bernstein and friends of the 40 Mile Loop took me on a bike ride down memory lane. The next day, Dave and Jo Ann took on the very difficult but extremely important topic of race and justice in America. I found the candor of the hosts and callers-in to be a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yesterday was quite synergenic. I didn't think anything Positively Revolting would be my pint of brew, but the community of thought that came together was positively revolutionary. I'm still not entirely successful in finding joy amidst the madness, but the range of emotions I was able to experience during the show were a welcome departure from depression. Together we just may succeed... or at least, survive.

KBOO, I think I love U. (And Jeff always has sumpin' to say to go along with that sexy voice! I'm glad he seems to hop around the dial too.)
