Old Mole Variety Hour on 04/20/09
Laurie Mercier hosts on this Monday after tax day. The moles discuss who controls the wealth and how it can be redistributed more fairly to insure participatory democracy and social justice. Along with reviews and commentaries they’ll speak with Jo Comerford, Executive Director of the National Priorities Project (NPP). The NPP analyzes and clarifies federal data so that people can understand and influence how their tax dollars are spent, and Comerford will help us understand how 40% of tax revenue that currently supports military spending could be redirected to more critical and productive needs. http://www.nationalpriorities.org/
And Old Moles Bill Resnick and Norm Diamond will discuss how recent polls indicate Americans are frustrated with capitalism and how the left can seize the moment to offer real social and economic alternatives.
