Corporate personhood and the campaign to legalize democracy

 

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme court took another step in the long - and many say misguided - journey to granting corporations personhood under the U.S. Constitution. In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, a five-member majority of the court increased the ability of corporations to use their wealth to influence our electoral process.

Eclectronic superfudge with a live performance by Graintable

Tune into KBOO this Tuesday night 3/2/10 for a live performance by GRAINTABLE. Hes been lighting up the Westcoast with his blend of electronic superfudge. Catch up with him about the new Chip Chop release, a few Portland shows and find out what goes on in the mind of the sonic scientist. It all starts at 8pm on Portlands own 90.7fm KBOO.

Emerging on the experimental electronic music scene in 2008, Graintable is quickly making a name for himself with melodically mutated hip hop beats and bass heavy bangers. Busting out MPC-style sample bashing live sets, Graintable creates heavy grooves laden with high energy sound scapes that will keep repeating in your head for days. Graintable released his first track on RUNRIOT’s Motion Sickness compilation in ‘09 and is currently working on more synthed out brain stomping tracks to rip through portable music boxes and dance floors in 2010.

Short Description: 
Americans don't torture. No, they call it something else. And then they get away with it.

A deeply disappointing Department of Justice report reduces the war crimes of the Bush administration to an error of legal judgment. Sorry about the torture! Shouldn't have listened to those damn lawyers. With Joe out on vacation, Abe looks at a Bizarro World in which torturers and mass murderers enjoy lives of retired luxury in between speaking gigs and Sunday talkshow appearances. Oh wait -- it's our world.

Short Description: 
Reality, it seems, has a liberal bias. Abe looks at the results of a remarkable poll, and digs into

A recent poll from Research 2000, commissioned by the Daily Kos, revealed some extraordinary insights into the conservative mind, which were nonetheless completely unsurprising to anyone who's been paying attention for the last, say, 50 years. The survey of 2000 self-identified Republicans tells us that 68 percent either favor impeaching Barack Obama or aren't sure. 63 percent think he's a socialist. More than half either believe that he was born outside the U.S. or aren't sure.
