Fear not, citizen, the President has your interests at heart. That's why he's wooing Wall Street.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/07/11

Air date: 
Tue, 06/07/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Welcome to the Machine. The USA PATRIOT Act has been renewed for another four years.

The surveillance state ushered in under the reign of Bush the Younger was given a bipartisan imprimatur in late May when the USA PATRIOT Act was renewed for another four years. Warrantless wiretaps?

It appears that any hopes progressives may have had that President Obama would undo the Bush-era security state are unfounded. Whither from here? Abe and Joe survey the damage.

Bill and Sanho talk about the reasons why the war on drugs has failed to curb abuse while defying empirical evidence about usage.

Sanho Tree is director of the Drug Policy Project, which works to end the domestic and international “War on Drugs” and replace it with policies that promote public health and safety, as well as economic alternatives to the prohibition drug economy.
