Air date: 
Tue, 02/16/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Reality, it seems, has a liberal bias. Abe looks at the results of a remarkable poll, and digs into

A recent poll from Research 2000, commissioned by the Daily Kos, revealed some extraordinary insights into the conservative mind, which were nonetheless completely unsurprising to anyone who's been paying attention for the last, say, 50 years. The survey of 2000 self-identified Republicans tells us that 68 percent either favor impeaching Barack Obama or aren't sure. 63 percent think he's a socialist. More than half either believe that he was born outside the U.S. or aren't sure.

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this show begins with several  discussions of work: how its wages are stolen, why it can be called slavery, whether work is necessary, and the value of "real" work.  In the second half of the program, we hear from a human rights activist just returned from Haiti, and Bill Resnick provides an assessment of the Obama presidency and its limitations.

KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.
