Legislation

The president just welcomed thousands who came here illegally as children. What does it mean?

program date: 
Tue, 06/19/2012

 Hosted by Abe Proctor.  Joe is on Vacation.

 

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 2nd Revolution: Dismantling Corporate Rule

program date: 
Wed, 06/06/2012

We live "drenched in corporate culture," with our planet, our democracy, and all of us "real people" under assault. But, according to Paul Cienfuegos, "We the people are more powerful than we dare to believe," and the corporate power structure CAN be dismantled. A long-time community organizer and educator, Cienfuegos provides a wealth of information showing how the fictions of "corporate personhood" and "corporate rights" can be challenged and reversed by empowered, informed citizen action. He'll be leading a Portland workshop June 9-10.

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.
