Protest and action

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/29/10

Air date: 
Tue, 06/29/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
This just in: up is down, in is out and black is white -- as long as you're a Republican.

With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the rampant denial, duplicity and hypocrisy that constitute the conservative psyche. As President Obama's Supreme Court nominee is vetted before the Senate, we learn from the GOP why Thurgood Marshall's civil rights crusade was so dangerous: he was a "judicial activist."

We also learn from our conservative brethren that the pressing American economic problem isn't unemployment, it's the deficit. So it's perfectly acceptable -- damn near required, even -- to sacrifice workers in the name of fiscal austerity.

Faced with the worst environmental disaster in US history, many people in the Gulf region have adopted a fatalistic attitude.
But community organizer Malik Rahim, who pulled together relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina, says this is no time for despair.
Instead, he has committed himself to biking from Louisiana to Washington DC to call for a restoration of the Gulf.
In doing so, he says he hopes to restore hope to a region that has been devastated twice in a five year period.
Malik Rahim spoke with KBOO about his bike ride to restore the Gulf.
