Emily Posner called from Maine to tell us about the movement to end or limit periods of solitary confinement for prisoners. Her comments focus on Maine, but certainly apply to most prisons in the U.S. Sorry to say, we had some technical problems, so we just uploaded “the best we could”.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/30/10

Air date: 
Tue, 03/30/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at the Tea Party.

For a few generations now, White Guys in America have been hearing footsteps -- female and nonwhite footsteps advancing relentlessly on the White Guys' exclusive clubhouse. This sense of creeping white unease has manifested itself in various ways over the years -- Nixon-era "states' rights," Reagan's crusade against "welfare moms," anti-immigrationism, and on and on -- and been skillfully exploited by leaders on the religious and political right.

Recent events, though, have thrown the White Guys into a full-blown, potentially violent panic. It began when Barack Obama's election appeared imminent, and reached a head with the passage of health care reform legislation. And this panic has a name -- the Tea Party.

 So what's it really about? And what if they took over? Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at what's eating at the Tea Partiers, and postulate on what the world would be like were the Tea Party to gain ascendancy.

This fall, Portlanders will decide whether to continue their experiment with voter-owned elections. The question becomes more relevant in the wake of Citzens United vs. Federal Elections Commission, a recent Supreme Court ruling that removed bans on corporate campaign spending. This week, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Common Cause Oregon's Janice Thompson about the upcoming referendum on voter-owned elections and what else needs to be done to fix our ailing electoral process.

For better or worse, the Democrats' health care reform legislation has passed. What's THAT mean?

program date: 
Tue, 03/23/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

For better or worse, the Democrats' health care reform legislation has passed.

But is it a good bill? Who benefits? Who loses? What about the public option? Will we ever get a single-payer system? How will this impact life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Abe and Joe look at the new health care status quo.
