Fear not, citizen, the President has your interests at heart. That's why he's wooing Wall Street.

It's been estimated that the winner of the 2012 presidential election will need to spend $1 billion to do it. In 2008, the financial sector, realizing it had been the catalyst for the economic meltdown, realized Barack Obama was a winner and decided to back him. This time around, he's making sure they back him again.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/07/11

Short Description: 
Welcome to the Machine. The USA PATRIOT Act has been renewed for another four years.

The surveillance state ushered in under the reign of Bush the Younger was given a bipartisan imprimatur in late May when the USA PATRIOT Act was renewed for another four years. Warrantless wiretaps? You bet. Illegal searches of personal and business records? That's just how it is these days, because, you know, terrorism.

It appears that any hopes progressives may have had that President Obama would undo the Bush-era security state are unfounded. Whither from here? Abe and Joe survey the damage.

Arun Gupta - Economic Crisis & the Tea Party

Arun Gupta - Economic Crisis & the Tea Party (lecture)

You’ve played by the rules. Went to work every day. Paid your bills and taxes. When your country summoned you to fight in its wars you were proud to serve. You’ve worked hard all your life and now what do you get? Bupkis as they say in Yiddish. Goat droppings. Your job was outsourced overseas. Your house has been foreclosed. You’re in debt. Meanwhile, the big banks are sitting pretty on tons of cash. The stock market and corporate profits are up. GE made billions in 2010 and didn’t pay a dime in taxes. With this backdrop in walks the Tea Party. They got the answers. You know why you are getting shafted? It’s the immigrants, gays, uppity women, minorities, liberals, unions, and public service workers.
