The New Congress and the Economy

Next week the new U.S. Congress will begin working with a new administration in the White House. Behind the smiles and calls for cooperation, there's already signs of differences between both sides of the congressional aisles and the president elect.

Categories:

 As 2009 dawns anew, we find our nation facing the hope and promise of a new administration and the anticipation of something different- an historical change to truly believe in. But before we can honestly move forward, it might be useful (if not somewhat amusing and painful) to look back over our collective shoulders on the last eight years - lest we forget our past.

Isreal, The Timeline: from Way Back Then till Right Now

program date: 
Mon, 01/12/2009

 Hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris cover many of the key points in Isreal's history, in an effort to understand how and why today's slaughter in Gaza came to be.  Of course, several well-spoken listeners offer illumination on some events, and contrasting views on others.
