How do we change the national conversation about war and peace? Also: Update on health care reform legislation

program date: 
Wed, 07/22/2009

Seven months into a new administration and the nation still finds itself embroiled in two Asian wars. Many Americans would have difficulty explaining how the Obama administration's conduct of these wars differs from the last administration's. They're certainly not being helped by policymakers and pundits who are working overtime to marginalize arguments for American withdrawal from the region. With the economy now people's foremost concern, how does the peace movement change the national conversation about war and peace?

The Death of Labor Law Reform, or Why the Democrats are So Pathetic and Meaningful Reform is Dead

 Bill Resnick for The Old Mole Variety Hour
 
 Why are the Congressional Democrats so weak and afraid? Why did they refuse to consider universal single payer health care, also called Medicare for All? Why last week did card check union organization die in the Congress? The card check provision was certainly the key part of the Labor Law Reform bill and labor’s top legislative priority. The AFL-CIO spent hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising and campaign contributions – yet its key section was killed by the Democrats. But how could that be?
