Warrior Capitalism: Middle class? What middle class?

program date: 
Mon, 05/18/2015

Tom Becker shares Jack Smith's article from Counterpunch.  It's about the disappearance of class terms, i.e., ruling class, upper class, working class, in political discussion by both politicians and journalists and the political consequences of that.

Bill Resnick with Brian Tokar on Bernie Sanders

program date: 
Mon, 05/18/2015

Bill Resnick interviews Brian Tokar on the promise of Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. Brain and Bernie built their political careers in the same town--Burlington, Vermont--starting in the late 1970s: Brian as a Green, Bernie as a Scandinavian-style socialist. Brian evaluates Bernie's politics, starting as a developer's friend and evolving into a defender of the environment as a Congressman and Senator. But Bernie has never attempted to build political movements nor identify with Vermont's progressive political parties.

Tue, 05/12/2015
The Oregon Supreme Court recently overturned the efforts of the Oregon Legislature to correct some of the funding problems as they affect PERS.  I interviewed more than a half-dozen legislators in 2014 about what they thought about the PERS funding issue and how they would deal with it.  This piece is a look back at the comments of those legislators and their thoughts in light of the recent ruling.
