The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 12/14/10

Air date: 
Tue, 12/14/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Compromise = Giving the Republicans everything they hold dear.

 Join Abe and Joe as we mourn the death of the New Deal. President Obama's  tax cut "compromise" spells out, in painful detail, the final death of the idea of liberalism as a governing philosophy. Obama was elected at the head of a populist wave and enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of Congress -- but at every turn, the prerogatives of the ruling class remained intact. The Bush tax cuts remain in place. Unemployment remains high. Obama and the Democrats kiss the ring of their corporate masters. Rest in peace, American Century. We hardly knew ye.

Press**Watch: Support Wikileaks


I won't be doing my show this week, but I want to promote the anti-totalitarian work being done by Wikileaks.  Right now the world corporate press is trying desperately to find circumlocutions that would allow them to avoid mentioning the fact that Julian Assange has just been arrested for...having consensual sex without a condom.

Now, supposing that was really done without consulting the women involved (one of whom is associated with the CIA's anti-Cuban corps), he should be confronted.  By the women.  And they should have better sense than to do him again.  But an international arrest warrant?

scope and grope


Today the well-read red is as obsessed as any rabid tea-bagger about the transportation security administration's invasive new screening procedures for airline passengers. In a weird convergence of left and right, huge numbers of Americans turn out to be averse to having strangers subject them to radiation, take naked pictures of them, or touch their junk.
