The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/30/10

Air date: 
Tue, 03/30/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at the Tea Party.

For a few generations now, White Guys in America have been hearing footsteps -- female and nonwhite footsteps advancing relentlessly on the White Guys' exclusive clubhouse. This sense of creeping white unease has manifested itself in various ways over the years -- Nixon-era "states' rights," Reagan's crusade against "welfare moms," anti-immigrationism, and on and on -- and been skillfully exploited by leaders on the religious and political right.

Recent events, though, have thrown the White Guys into a full-blown, potentially violent panic. It began when Barack Obama's election appeared imminent, and reached a head with the passage of health care reform legislation. And this panic has a name -- the Tea Party.

 So what's it really about? And what if they took over? Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at what's eating at the Tea Partiers, and postulate on what the world would be like were the Tea Party to gain ascendancy.

Much of our urban landscape is paved over or covered with buildings, creating an environment that is the antithesis of nature. Rooftops and asphalt flush rain water into storm sewers, overburdening and polluting our rivers. Portland is fast becoming a leader in promoting vegetated rooftops to capture stormwater. Is it possible to go even further and actually create functional wildlife habitat on buildings that will help birds, bats, bugs and other animals as they traverse our urban landscape?

Thu, 03/25/2010

This fall, Portlanders will decide whether to continue their experiment with voter-owned elections. The question becomes more relevant in the wake of Citzens United vs. Federal Elections Commission, a recent Supreme Court ruling that removed bans on corporate campaign spending. This week, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Common Cause Oregon's Janice Thompson about the upcoming referendum on voter-owned elections and what else needs to be done to fix our ailing electoral process.

Denise Morris hosts this show about things moles, ordinary people, are doing to "root that mountain down"-- the mountain of oppression and exploitation.  We hear about people in Portland getting ready to join in the US Social Forum; about a big conference in Vancouver, WA challenging inequities of class and race around health issues;  about queer folk organizing to get over the fixation on the bourgeois institution of marriage; and about the dangers to our world and our lives from all the stuff we make and consume.
