Short Description: 
Our Republic is broken. What's to be done? With Joe on vacation, Abe tosses out a possible answer: a

Our Republic is broken. A lockstep minority, cloaked in arcane rules, can bring business to a complete halt. The influence of monied interests is rampant. The social contract has been shredded, and cherished liberties erode. A yawning chasm opens between rich and poor. A bloated foreign empire bleeds the Treasury. The public discourse is controlled by a profit-driven Fourth Estate that is loath to criticize its owners. The promise of a populist president seems impotent against the entrenched forces arrayed against him.

Our Republic is broken. What is to be done? Let's call a Constitutional Convention and fix it.

Haiti, Race and International Adoption

The arrest of 10 American Baptists for attempting to take children out of Haiti without permission has rekindled the debate over international adoption. Many Americans believe the plight of Haitian children more than justifies removal of orphans to new homes abroad. Critics fear incorrect identification of Haitian children as orphans and the potential for human trafficking.

Today's topic is Abortion, and Female Callers take Precedence

program date: 
Tue, 02/02/2010

 With Joe on vacation, Abe takes on the warm, fuzzy, not-at-all divisive issue of Abortion.

 It's clear that the issue of abortion elicits a visceral reaction from certain members of the political right, in a way that few other issues do. The reason why is perhaps less clear than it might appear. On the surface, it is framed by abortion opponents as a question of the right of a human to not be murdered. Dig a little deeper though, and you find a fear of sexuality and sex -- particularly female sexualty, and the choice of young women to have sex on their own terms.
