Wake Up and Smell The Boot Polish

program date: 
Tue, 11/10/2009

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 Today, Joe is by himself, and he opens the show with a reading of an article from August of 1993 that was printed in a small independent rag called PDXS.  The article was entitled "Wake Up And Smell The Boot Polish," and warned us of a pending Fascist State looming on the horizon.  Amazingly, the article could have been written yesterday, and inspired quite the flurry of calls.

Creating the World Anew, Together-- Here and Now

Categories:

This morning on Positively Revolting talk radio, I hosted a discussion on revolutionary spirit and radical social change. You can listen to the audio for that program here.

In England, bonfires are lit on November 5th, and Guy Fawkes is still burnt in effigy, four hundred plus years after the original attempt.
