Dispatches from the War on Sex: Mississippi's 'personhood' initiative

program date: 
Tue, 11/08/2011

Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

Voters in Mississippi will decide tomorrow on a 'personhood' initiative which, if passed, would confer legal personhood upon a fertilized ovum. This would of course render abortion illegal, and any other act that interfered with said ovum's development -- like, say, a miscarriage, or the use of certain kinds of birth control -- could be considered negligent homicide or even murder.

Thus do the War on Sex, and the War to Put Women Back In Their Place, continue. Abe and Joe examine the situation and take your phone calls.

Occupy Wall Street comes to Portland -- and it's the real deal.

program date: 
Tue, 10/11/2011

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 

The Occupy Wall Street movement has come to Portland. Much has been made aboutwhat the movement iswhat the occupiers want, and what their message is. It's really pretty simple -- it's about economic injustice. And it's the real deal. This is true economic populism. It cuts across race, creed, gender and party. It is, as the plutocrats howl, class warfare. And for the first time in a long while, it seems as if the masses have a notion to win.
