Nine years of occupation in Afghanistan-- how do we stop it? a discussion with Dan Handelman.

The nine years of occupation in Afghanistan has squandered precious resources, fanned xenophobia, and furthered the militarization of society.

Abe and Joe examine the billionaire backers of the Tea Party movement.

program date: 
Tue, 08/31/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 

The Teabaggers -- noisy, bigoted and ignorant, but basically harmless, right? And if we're lucky, they'll hijack the Republican Party and nominate a bunch of un-electable loons. The best thing the Teabaggers can do is to keep making asses of themselves in public.

Jo Ann and Dave talked about the various aspects of Katrina's impacts, including the permanent displacement of over 100,000 residents, the reshaping of the city and the federal indictments against the New Orleans police.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 08/31/10

Air date: 
Tue, 08/31/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe examine the billionaire backers of the Tea Party movement.

The Teabaggers -- noisy, bigoted and ignorant, but basically harmless, right? And if we're lucky, they'll hijack the Republican Party and nominate a bunch of un-electable loons. The best thing the Teabaggers can do is to keep making asses of themselves in public.

But what if they have friends in high places? A bombshell article by Jane Mayer in the New Yorker paints a vivid portrait of two such highly-placed friends. David and Charles Koch, the patriarch sublings of Koch Industries, are philanthropists of note -- and also deep-pocketed backers of the Tea Party and other conservative causes. Abe and Joe delve into the New Yorker piece and discuss the role of big money in today's discourse.

August 30 Old Mole Variety Hour

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how medical care is improved when delivered by people who are cooperating rather than being managed from the top; whether charity keeps us from dealing with the real probems; the new Todd Solandz movie Life During Wartime; and music that keeps lost causes from being forgotten so that they may rise again and succeed.

Songs of Lost Causes

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

 With the help of the Old Mole's  radical musicologist Brad Duncan, we sample and discuss some music that keeps alive memories of lost battles that can nevertheless point the way to a better future.  Among the battles are the Spanish Civil War, the 1984 British miners' strike, the life and death of Malcolm X, and the ongoing struggle for the rights of political prisoners in Northern Ireland.  Here is a video of Ciaran Murphy's "Rebel Song" with images that give you an idea of what he's singing about.
