The history of the United States is a saga of immigration, whether you're a descendant of immigrants, a descendant of those displaced by immigrants, or an immigrant yourself. In a place such as this -- where being a American is more about an idea than where your ancestors came from -- the question of immigration still resonates.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/05/12

Air date: 
Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
As Joe prepares for his annual hiatus, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

 The State of the Union is screwed. Four years into the New Depression, the economy still lags and working people suffer while the ruling class rolls in profligate wealth. Inequality grows more extreme. The wars drag on. The modern surveillance state is a reality. The planet grows warmer.

What's to be done? Do we play by the rules, and rely on our democratic institutions? If so, whom do we support? Does it matter? Is it time for a more creative solution?

In Joe's last show before his annual summer break, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

Short Description: 
Abe and Joe ponder the recent preponderance of religious misbehavior.

Some three centuries into the Age of Reason, there still seem to be an inordinate number of public clashes between the secular and the sacred. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is using the two-week runup to the 4th of July to stage something called the "Fortnight for Freedom," a nationwide campaign aimed at ensuring that the Catholic Church (and other institutions) can continue to exercise their religious liberty by denying their employees access to contraception and abortion.

Tillicum Wawa with Cynthia King/News on Winnemem Wintu/Upcoming "Return Voyage" Event

What a great learning opportunity, speaking with Cynthia King, Native herbalist and owner of The Herb Shed! Her specialty is aromatherapy...at one point she sprayed cedar mist in the air room. The calming and balancing effects left us very relaxed. I thinks that could be heard on-air. Thank you so much, Cynthia, for coming to KBOO and being part of the conversation!
