Bending The Ear The Feeds Us

For the Jan 22nd show, we want to find out what concrete actions we can take as civil actors to move our government in the direction we want it to move. Cautious Optimism is what a lot of us feel about an Obama administration - and many of us have already felt disheartened by moves Obama has made: Rick Warren giving the benediction, a distanced stance on the Gaza invasion, Dennis Blair as Director of National Intelligence. But, we also know, that freedom is never given, it must be taken. And it's Obama's job to execute the will of the people. And it's our job to make our will known. If we want to go from the Worst President in History to the Best President in History (and even to the cynics.. why not?), what do we do, day to day, living in our communities to make it happen. Please, post your questions, thoughts and concerns, and we'll try to address them on air.
