Three budgets for the Federal Government are being proposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. Ellen Frank, a University of Massachussetts economist who writes for Dollars and Sense, talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about the values behind each of them and what their impact would be.
In the course of confirmation hearings for John Brennan as director of the CIA, the question was posed, "Can the President order the killing of an American citizen on US soil?" In this commentary, Clayton Morgareidge reads from two recent articles about Rand Paul's filibuster of the Brennan nomination, asking how did such a question become a serious one, and whether the Democrats should have supported Paul.
Bill Resnick attended the rally on Sunday in support of the Postal Service workers and against cuts in service, including Saturday deliveries. He recorded sound bites from speeches and interviews at the rally, plus a more extended defense of the Postal Service by Willie Goshell, in the KBOO studios. From it all, we learn more than we knew about what the Postal Service does to bind communities together.
Iven Hale hosts this episode of the Mole dealing with Congressional Budget proposals, drones and filibusters, rape and Native Americans, civilization's fate in the hands of capitalism, and the fight to save the US Postal Service.
