Civilianism #20 / Bridges and Freedom

Monday 8/6/2007
3:00pm - repeat 10:00pm

If a bridge falls in Minneapolis, does it make a sound Republicans can hear? Bridges collapsing, infrastructure crumbling, yet Republican politicians won’t raise taxes and fix things because they’re selfish and greedy. More signs of greed include telling 22,000 Iraq veterans they have personality disorders, separating them from the military and denying them their medical benefits. What is wrong with Republicans? They also start wars just to spread killing and chaos, not freedom or democracy, so that in the ensuing chaos they can grab control of natural resources.

Bush’s bizarre behavior during his first press conference with Prime Minister Gordon Brown should be grounds enough for a finding of a pre-existing personality disorder. Can we separate him from the U.S. government?

Jeff of the podcast GOP Exposed called in a long voicemail about slavery and his theory as to why we invade other countries.

Then I go way off script and rant about the occupation in Iraq for a bit. It felt good, though I stick to my promise to remain un-hysterical, unlike many Republican broadcasters. I’m so sick of the occupation of Iraq and the administration’s excuses and constantly evolving reasoning I’m afraid I’m becoming numb to it. Getting angry helps keep me focused on how wrong and immoral the invasion was and the occupation is. Please don’t get numb to it because then apathy sets in. We have to end our involvement in Iraq as soon as possible and remain dedicated to that.
This podcast also plays a portion of the Jon Elliot radio show featuring the story of Mark and Deborah Kuhn, who had an unfortunate run-in with the law concerning their American flag. Their story includes a strange encounter with an Iraq war veteran.

The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office arrested activists Mark and Deborah Kuhn in West Asheville Wednesday morning after a complaint that the couple was desecrating an American flag. They say a deputy invaded their home and used excessive force.

Alternative Radio Friday 4/13

5:00 pm & 10:00 pm
In Conversation
Kurt Vonnegut

Where recorded: New York, NY
Date recorded: 23 Feb 2003

While attending university in the mid 70s, I probably spent more time reading the novels of Kurt Vonnegut than my college texts. He was my hero, and has become a cultural icon. His observation of the destructiveness and dehumanization of the 20th century, distilled by his rich imagination and quirky view of events and their time frames, make for delightful reading and listening experiences. His irreverence is palpable, as is his disdain for Bush and the current administration. Asked by a journalist for an idea for a really scary reality TV show, Vonnegut responded, "C Students From Yale, it would stand your hair on end." In his book Hocus Pocus, published in 1990, he wrote, "Just because some of us can read and write and do a little math, that doesn't mean we deserve to conquer the Universe."

Kurt Vonnegut
Kurt Vonnegut was an infantryman in WW2 and was captured during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944. He was then taken to a POW camp in Dresden in time to experience the horrific Allied firebombing of the city from the relative safety of an underground meat locker. The destruction wrought was greater than that of Nagasaki. He is now a self-described "fourth-generation German-American living in easy circumstances." He has written over 20 books and ranks among America's most widely read and best loved authors.

MAKING CONTACT - a weekly international radio program

April 11, 2007
3:00 pm & 11;00 pm

Taxes are something we all have to deal with, whether we like it or not. They fund basic infrastructure and much needed social programs. The tax cuts of the Bush administration were supposed to create more jobs and redistribute the wealth for average Americans, but have they?

To find out, we talk with a single mom and a tax fairness advocate to debunk some myths about how wealth is created and what people can do to change tax policy. We also look at how an under-reported union between political conservatives and the Christian right preserves the gap between the haves and have-nots.


Harmony Langford, single mom in Flint, Michigan; Anisha Desai, Deputy Director, United for Fair Economy; Tom McClosky, vice president of government affairs and chief lobbyist of the Family Research Council; Rich Meagher, PhD candidate, City University of New York; Max Sawicky, economist at the Economic Policy Institute.
