Guess Who's Coming to Radio??!! on 12/16/10

Air date: 
Thu, 12/16/2010 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
a review/overview of the constitution!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' feel it's high time for a little lesson about a word consistently credited by some individuals, but never actually utilized by said people- the constitution.  in light of all this wikileaks business (and yes, in light of the manufactured controversy surrounding our teacher michael jackson's album release, as well as his legacy) we find it imperative to discuss the MANUFACTURING OF DECEPTION (and the will of the people to be deceived) in relation to the violations of the basic tenets of the constitution. 

do these amendments mean anything anymore, and did they EVER mean anything?  join us in the discussion, and call 503 231 8187!  we encourage constructive and pro-active dialog!

The Death of the New Deal - or - Obama's Tax Cut "Compromise"

program date: 
Tue, 12/14/2010

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris.

Join Abe and Joe as we mourn the death of the New Deal. President Obama's  tax cut "compromise" spells out, in painful detail, the final death of the idea of liberalism as a governing philosophy. Obama was elected at the head of a populist wave and enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of Congress -- but at every turn, the prerogatives of the ruling class remained intact. The Bush tax cuts remain in place. Unemployment remains high. Obama and the Democrats kiss the ring of their corporate masters. Rest in peace, American Century. We hardly knew ye

Bill Moyers – Organize! Honoring Howard Zinn (lecture)

Joe Hill, born in Sweden, emigrated to the United States in 1902, where he became a migrant laborer. When he was a dockworker in California, Hill joined the Industrial Workers of the World, the IWW.

He traveled widely, writing political songs, making speeches and organizing workers under the IWW banner.

In 1915, while working in a mine in Utah, he was accused of murder in a dubious case that became an international cause celebre. Just prior to his execution, he wrote to Bill Haywood, an IWW leader, saying, "Don't waste any time in mourning. Organize.”
