As you may remember on January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

No on 26-151 interview with Kellie Barnes

Voters have received the Voters pamphlet and will get their ballots in the next few days. One of the biggest issues facing voters on May 21, 2013 is the issue of fluoridating water. Measure 26-151-ask voters ”Shall Portlanders fluoridate its drinking water supply”. Both sides of this debate were invited to participate in this conversation, unfortunately the pro-side didn’t respond. I will talk with Kellie Barnes, a local small business owner and a volunteer with Clean Water Portland on the No on 26-151 campaign. Have you decided? What questions do you have about fluoridation? Is it safe for food and pets? What questions do you have for the pro side? Let us know your thoughts! Join Kellie and I tomorrow morning from 8:30AM-9:00AM and join the conversation on Voices from the Edge.

The Politics of Language - Sera Davidow

Mental health professionals create psychiatric labels ostensibly to make sense of madness, but at what point do labels shut down understanding and actually damage people experiencing extreme states and emotional distress? On this episode of Madness Radio, Sera Davidow, psychiatric survivor and director of the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community (RLC), discusses the politics of language and labels, as well as the innovative programs being pioneered by the Western Mass RLC. Sera is also the co-producer of the new film, "Beyond the Medical Model."

Short Description: 
Just when you thought is was over, the War on Women returns.

There's one thing we can all set our clocks by -- somewhere, there's a conservative who's really bent that there are women out there having unauthorized sex. State legislators in Michigan, Virginia, Alabama, and Indiana have all recently introduced legislation restricting reproductive rights.

Is this really about protecting the fetus, or is it about controlling women, their bodies, and their sexuality? Or both? Abe and Joe examine this question and take listener phone calls.
