The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 01/04/11

Air date: 
Tue, 01/04/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe discuss the not inconsiderable accomplishments of the Obama administration.

 It's no secret that for progressives, the Obama administration has been a mixed bag. A number of landmark accomplishments seem diminished in light of what they might have been, had the President and his Congressional majority had the backbone to challenge the prerogatives of the wealthy.

Joe, back from vacation, joins Abe to discuss the accomplishments of the Obama administration thus far -- and suggest how the President might chart a bolder tack in the future.

How to gain the rule of the people, not corporations
Paul Cienfuegos – Corporations vs. People (lecture)

The Citizens United Supreme Court decision gave corporations a green light to secretly funnel in as much money as they want to elect candidates. The justices in their supreme wisdom have once again privileged corporations over citizens. The results have been dramatic. Even with a weak economy a record amount of cash has flooded political campaigns. Although corporations are not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution or Bill of Rights a series of legal decisions have given them the rights of personhood and free speech.
