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.

Kathy Christison speaks on Settlements: Obstacles to Peace

Kathy Christison - Settlements: Obstacles to Peace (lecture)

There are some 500,000 Israelis living in settlements on what is almost universally regarded as Palestinian land. The first houses went up in the late 1960s and have continued under both Labor and Likud governments. They are the “facts on the ground” Israeli leaders said they wanted to create. There are freezes, partial freezes, and temporary halts in construction. But the trend in more and more building continues. The stalled peace process goes off track. Road maps are redrawn. The Obama administration vetoes UN resolutions condemning Israeli policy.
