Voices from the Edge 12-23-10 Who Was Good & Who Was Bad in 2010?

program date: 
Thu, 12/23/2010

It's that time of year, when Jo Ann and Dave review which of our public figures deserve a gift in their stocking and which deserve a lump of coal, such as Senator John McCain for his blind opposition to "don't ask, don't tell"; Governor-elect John Kitzhaber for stonewalling single-payer health care advocates once again;  and even closer to home, Portland Police Chief Reese and his public position on participatory democracy.

Listeners called in and shared their holiday list of candidates.

Jo Ann Bowman is a former state legislator, former executive director of Oregon Action, and a long-time leader in the struggle for racial and economic justice.

What should the government be able to keep secret? Were the WikiLeaks a good thing?

Tue, 12/21/2010

 What should the government be able to keep secret? Were the WikiLeaks a good thing?

 The release of secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks has prompted a draconian response, ranging from calls for founder Julian Assange's assassination to repeated attempts to shut down WikiLeaks and its satellite Web sites. Attacks from leading American political and media figures -- not to mention Assange's arrest -- suggest that it's a far graver sin to expose secrets than to govern under their aegis.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 12/21/10

Air date: 
Tue, 12/21/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
What should the government be able to keep secret? Were the WikiLeaks a good thing?

 The release of secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks has prompted a draconian response, ranging from calls for founder Julian Assange's assassination to repeated attempts to shut down WikiLeaks and its satellite Web sites. Attacks from leading American political and media figures -- not to mention Assange's arrest -- suggest that it's a far graver sin to expose secrets than to govern under their aegis.

Is piercing the veil of government secrecy a good thing? Is WikiLeaks endangering national security, or providing a public service? Is an independent Web-based entity fulfilling the role that the American press has largely abdicated? With Joe on vacation, Abe looks at the fallout.

The Death of the New Deal - or - Obama's Tax Cut "Compromise"

program date: 
Tue, 12/14/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris.

Join Abe and Joe as we mourn the death of the New Deal. President Obama's  tax cut "compromise" spells out, in painful detail, the final death of the idea of liberalism as a governing philosophy. Obama was elected at the head of a populist wave and enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of Congress -- but at every turn, the prerogatives of the ruling class remained intact. The Bush tax cuts remain in place. Unemployment remains high. Obama and the Democrats kiss the ring of their corporate masters. Rest in peace, American Century. We hardly knew ye
