Abe and Joe Talk Radio 8/19

program date: 
Mon, 08/18/2008

Host Joe Uris steers the ship solo thru 2 issues, one local and one international.  

Locally, we're centered on Mike Erickson's [Wiki] 2004 "vacation" in Cuba, where he lost all of the receipts and other paperwork showing that his vacation was, in actuality, a humanitarian mission, carrying medical supplies to a Cuban clinic that doesn't seem to exist.  

Internationally, of course, is our relationship with Russia, now that they've demonstrated their admiration for US Foreign Policy thru mimicry, by brutally invading another sovereign nation under the guise of "Liberation."  Because they can.
