Host Cecil Prescod interviews Christopher Phillips, author of "Constitution Cafe: Jefferson's Brew for a True Revolution: Jefferson's Brew for a True Revolution."

A radical in his own day, Thomas Jefferson believed that the Constitution should be revised periodically to keep up with the changing times. Instead, it has become a sacred, immutable text-and in Phillips's opinion, it's in need of some shaking up.

For his book Phillips gathered together Americans from all walks of life, moderating dialogues inspired by Jefferson's own populist political philosophy, formulating new Constitutional articles.

Occupy!

Sun, 11/20/2011

In the past week, we’ve seen a nation wide campaign to evict protestors from the Occupy encampments, including the mass arrests in Zucotti Park at the heart of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.  Locally, Portlanders came out in force to support the Occupy movement on Saturday, November 12th,  with the announcement of a midnite eviction by Mayor Sam Adams.  Thousands rallied in the streets to show support and delay an eviction.

With recent events, many are asking, What’s next for the movement?

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Christopher Phillips, author of "Constitution Café: Jefferson's Brew for a True Revolution."

Call in to discuss whether you think the Constitution should be revised every twenty years.

A radical in his own day, Thomas Jefferson believed that the Constitution should be revised periodically to keep up with the changing times. Instead, it has become a sacred, immutable text-and in Phillips's opinion, it's in need of some shaking up.

Jodie Evans speaks on "Disturbing Power the CODEPINK Way"

Rocking the boat is never an easy task but you can accomplish meaningful things and have some fun along the way. Playing ball with the rich and powerful of course has its rewards. You're in the golden rolodex. You get invited to all the right parties. People nod at you when you enter a room. Your name gives you entrée to inner circles. In politics the president or the secretary of state may even smile at you and call you by your given name. But all of that adds up to what exactly? Not much. That kind of fame is fleeting. Better to shake things up and fight for human rights and justice. Even if you don't succeed every time you can look in the mirror and feel good about yourself.

Political science professor Thomas Ferguson on the failure of the "Super Committee"

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Thomas Ferguson, professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and a senior fellow of the Roosevelt Institute, about the significance of the failure of the Congressional budgetary Super Committee and what it bodes for the future.

Ferguson says, "Read the fine print on the 'crisis' in Social Security and you discover that even critics, such as Peter Orszag (President Obama’s former OMB chief), admit that under their pessimistic assumptions Social Security payments might rise by all of one percent of GDP by 2050! Social Security is obviously a non-problem, especially in the middle of the Great Recession.
