The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/05/12

Air date: 
Tue, 06/05/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
As Joe prepares for his annual hiatus, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

 The State of the Union is screwed. Four years into the New Depression, the economy still lags and working people suffer while the ruling class rolls in profligate wealth. Inequality grows more extreme. The wars drag on. The modern surveillance state is a reality. The planet grows warmer.

What's to be done? Do we play by the rules, and rely on our democratic institutions? If so, whom do we support? Does it matter? Is it time for a more creative solution?

In Joe's last show before his annual summer break, he and Abe survey the State of the Union.

Short Description: 
Abe and Joe ponder the recent preponderance of religious misbehavior.

Some three centuries into the Age of Reason, there still seem to be an inordinate number of public clashes between the secular and the sacred. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is using the two-week runup to the 4th of July to stage something called the "Fortnight for Freedom," a nationwide campaign aimed at ensuring that the Catholic Church (and other institutions) can continue to exercise their religious liberty by denying their employees access to contraception and abortion.

Atkinson School, one of many Portland Public Schools is suffering from fund cuts for 2 and half position for next year. Listen to community organizers Kim Heron, Diana Cameron, Savannah Paz, Carissa Harrison and Constance San Juan about the actions parents, teachers and community memebers are taking to save their children's education.

Back in February the city of Philadelphia's school system announced the closing of 40 public school to be replaced by privately owned private and charter schools by 2017. This announcement received very little to no coverage by the local or national media. It appears that this pattern is not new and is repeating itself all over the nation.
