The Bhopal Survivors Tour 2009...

The guest is activist Satinath Sarangi (Satyu) who has been working in Bhopal for the past 25 years.

 

The Union Carbide Chemical Disaster in Bhopal, India has killed more than 23,000 people due to a catastrophic gas leak and ongoing water contamination in this central Indian city. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the horrific night in 1984 when a toxic cloud of methyl isocyanate enveloped the sleeping city. The Anniversary is a celebration by Bhopal survivor groups and their allies of 25 years of courage in the face of corporate crime.

Two senior activists Rachna Dingra and Satinath Sarangi and two Bhopal Disaster survivors, will be touring the US and Canada in this April and May. The tour is being hosted by the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal and the Association for India's Development. ICJB is a coalition of survivors group and allies around the world working for justice and a life of dignity for the survivors of the Bhopal Disaster, and for a toxic free future for us all. AID is a volunteer movement promoting sustainable, equitable and just development.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 05/26/09

Tue, 05/26/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Joe and Abe solve the Curious Case of the Cowardly War-Mongers

Closing the Guantanamo Bay gulag would be nice and all, but not if we have to bring the terrorists back to the United States! Apparently they're all 10 feet tall with various mutant superpowers, and no American prison can hold them. As soon as we brought them here, they would break out en masse and start a cross-country rampage, burning and pillaging as their ranks are swelled by liberal America-haters and other ne-er-do-wells.

Joe and Abe examine the rank cowardice behind the Senate's vote to keep the Guantanamo prison open.

Dubya, Hammer of God

May 18, 2009

Remember, back in those nightmare years surrounding the initial invasion and occupation of Iraq? Remember when we would speculate, half in jest, that Dubya was an unhinged, end-times, Book-of-Revelation, whackjob war leader? That he was, ha-ha, doing God's work in smiting the infidels? That he was, snort, paving the way for the Apocalypse?

All of it was true.

It seems that Donald Rumsfeld, in those early days during and after the invasion, would submit to the President a daily intelligence briefing called the Worldwide Intelligence Update. On each cover was emblazoned a full-color hymn to American martial virtue, complete with appropriately smite-tacular Biblical verse.

I kid you not. Bush was EVERY INCH the nutjob avenging Warrior of God we imagined him to be in our dark satiric daydreams.

These people need to go to jail.
