Legislation

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 04/05/11

Air date: 
Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
At least they're consistent. Abe and Joe look at the GOP's latest assault on women.

 They're as predictable as the tides. Back in control of the U.S. House and statehouses across the land, the Republicans have returned to their age-old crusade -- smacking down uppity women everywhere. Abe and Joe look at the landslide of new laws and pending legislation  that is chipping away at women's equality and reproductive rights.

In the end, though, it all down to the same old patriarchal song -- fear of sexuality and fear of women.

Wisconsin Uprising

program date: 
Wed, 03/16/2011
Wisconsin is again at the center of a fight for labor and collective bargaining rights. We did most of these interviews last week, just as the news broke that collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin had been all but eliminated for public workers. This came after three weeks of massive protests in Madison and less publicized protests across the state that inspired social justice activists nationally and internationally.
Tonight on Circle A Radio we speak with Ken Germanson, former President of the Wisconsin Labor History Society. We also have interviews with Margaret Shannon, Natalie Tsoris, and Lauryl Sulfate, all of Wisconsin, all opposed to the union-busting Budget Repair Bill proposed in the Wisconsin State Senate in February 2011.

Voices from the Edge 03-17-11 A new look at Oregon's Measure 11 and its impacts

program date: 
Thu, 03/17/2011

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.
