Looking beyond the rhetoric: the arguments for (and against) Measures 66 & 67

program date: 
Thu, 01/07/2010

On January 26, Oregonians will be asked to decide how the latest chapter in the state's long-running tax wars will turn out. Opponents of two tax increases approved by the legislature in 2009 succeeded in collecting enough signatures for a referendum on what are now Measures 66 and 67. The former would raise the state income tax rate on those earning more than $125,000 per year while the latter would increase the minimum corporate tax. Supporters of the measures say vital public services are at stake. Opponents say raising taxes during a recession will only make matters worse.

Sooner or later, it had to happen. A terrorist attack would take place on President Obama's watch, and the wingnuts would bleat about his response to the End of the World as We Know It. As it happens, the attack consisted of a kid trying -- unsuccessfully -- to set his underpants on fire. Confronted with the reality of terrorism, the president -- appropriately -- responded cooly and logically.

Unfortunately, the Right seems to believe that his response to terrorism should be, well, terror. Rather than keeping his head, apparently the American people would be better served by Obama the Angry Father.

Religious garb in public schools: yes? or no?

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 12/21/2009

 Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod host a discussion of the issue of wearing religious clothing in public schools. In Oregon teachers are prohibited from wearing religious garb in school. The law dates to 1923  when an open supporter of the Ku Klux Klan, presided as speaker of the Oregon House. It was included in the Alien Property Act of 1923, which prohibited Japanese Americans from owning property in Oregon, and was designed to prevent nuns and priests from wearing religious garb in classrooms.

British Parliament Member George Galloway has been deported and banned from entering Egypt, after successfully leading a humanitarian aid caravan into the Gaza Strip. Galloway’s ‘Viva Palestina’ convoy faced a number of obstacles while trying to bring over two hundred vehicles full of aid into the Gaza Strip.

They were finally able to enter the besieged coastal strip on Wednesday, but were only given forty-eight hours to distribute their aid. Viva Palestina was just the latest of a number of solidarity marches and caravans showing support for the besieged population of Gaza on the one year anniversary of Israel’s massive invasion.
