The History of Haiti and its subordination by Colonial Powers, like the good ol' US of A

program date: 
Tue, 01/19/2010

 Abe and Joe take a brief tour through the bloody history of Haiti, and discuss the obligations that the developed world has -- or should have -- toward the undeveloped world.

The calamity in Haiti has made one thing abundantly clear -- when a nation has been at the business end of colonialism for centuries, it's that much more difficult to react when disaster strikes. And when, like Haiti, a nation has the temerity to aspire to self-government by people of African descent, the disparity is even more striking.

"Oh, I Believe in Yesterday"... 2009 Ends the 2000's Decade... Here is a look into our past

It doesn't matter what you call the last decade, "Zeros", "Nils", "Oh-Oh's", "Oughts", "Oughties", or "Naughties", 2000-2009 defied our predictions and perceptions of life on this planet and forced us to examine our future way of existing. The 21st century spent more interest in celebrity culture, online shopping, and Twitter than the world still suffering from AIDS/Cancer, homelessness, poverty, unemployment, climate change, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, wars, bombings, unexpected deaths, and addiction to oil. The decade sure did change the world, but just not for the reasons we thought.

Reflections on the Underpants Bomber

program date: 
Tue, 01/12/2010

 Sooner or later, it had to happen. A terrorist attack would take place on President Obama's watch, and the wingnuts would bleat about his response to the End of the World as We Know It. As it happens, the attack consisted of a kid trying -- unsuccessfully -- to set his underpants on fire. Confronted with the reality of terrorism, the president -- appropriately -- responded cooly and logically.

Sooner or later, it had to happen. A terrorist attack would take place on President Obama's watch, and the wingnuts would bleat about his response to the End of the World as We Know It. As it happens, the attack consisted of a kid trying -- unsuccessfully -- to set his underpants on fire. Confronted with the reality of terrorism, the president -- appropriately -- responded cooly and logically.

Unfortunately, the Right seems to believe that his response to terrorism should be, well, terror. Rather than keeping his head, apparently the American people would be better served by Obama the Angry Father.
