program date: 
Mon, 01/16/2012

Well-read Red, Clayton Morgareidge, reads an excerpt from Gary Weiss' article from Salon on Mitt Romney and vulture-capitalism. The article reviews how Romney's former investment firm bought out companies and destroyed rather than created jobs, while turning a tidy profit, and how Romney's Republican opponents have even cricized him for it (drawing their own criticism for questioning capitalism).

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Economic Autonomy, Racial Injustice, War and Moving Beyond the Dream

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Economic Autonomy, Racial Injustice and War and the Need to Move Beyond the Dream.

Today's Talk Radio is pre-empted for a special for Martin Luther King Jr. Day produced by Jamilah Bourdon

"as we approach the official celebration of martin luther king jr.'s life, we spend another year of reflection on what the dream he spoke of means to us.  in the midst of this conversation, we tend to neglect his observations on the injustices of war and economic equalities- issues which still resonate to this day. 

join us as we feature portions of dr. king's speeches regarding economic autonomy, the connections between racial injustice and war; and the need to move beyond a dream into a reality."
