Brad Duncan talks with Joe about how hardcore punk functioned to politicize many apathetic young people in the 1990s, but also faced a social contradiction with its anti-authoritarian message on the one hand and the realization of the need for solidarity with practical groups on other.

It's that time of year, when Jo Ann and Dave review which of our public figures deserve a gift in their stocking and which deserve a lump of coal, such as Senator John McCain for his blind opposition to "don't ask, don't tell"; Governor-elect John Kitzhaber for stonewalling single-payer health care advocates once again; and even closer to home, Portland Police Chief Reese and his public position on participatory democracy.
Listeners called in and shared their holiday list of candidates.

Join Abe and Joe as we mourn the death of the New Deal. President Obama's tax cut "compromise" spells out, in painful detail, the final death of the idea of liberalism as a governing philosophy. Obama was elected at the head of a populist wave and enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of Congress -- but at every turn, the prerogatives of the ruling class remained intact.
