Who are the Troublemakers in our Democracy?





The Massachusetts Observer


Posted: 29 Nov 2013 02:39 PM PST

Massachusetts Observer Radio presents programs from the past that shine light on the present.

Radio programs were not traditionally saved for posterity, and sometimes we must be satisfied with any recordings or even snippets that have survived. The episode of "America's Town Meeting of the Air" centering around the question "Who are the Troublemakers in our Democracy?" which was broadcast in May of 1952 is a good example. We have only part of that program available.

Its import, however, makes it worthy of our attention. The discussion was taking place during what many have seen as a Communist witch hunt in the United States at the time. Senator Joseph McCarthy, who zeal to ferret out Communist and/or sympathizers left us with a name for the practice: McCarthyism.

Three speakers from different points of view are heard in this order: Arnold Forster, Merle Miller, and Victor Riesel. Who they are and what they believe will be heard. The moderator is Marquis Childs.

For Massachusetts Observer Radio listeners, who believe in making up their own minds on the issues, here is the program. To listen, please click here.

The Massachusetts Observer


Whose Democracy is It?

Posted: 24 Nov 2013 10:59 AM PST


Massachusetts Observer Radio presents programs from the past to shed light on the present.

The Date: December 12, 1940

The Location: New York City

The Discussion: What are we preparing to defend?

The Event: Broadcast of America's Town Meeting of the Air

The Participants: Harry Overstreet, author, writer, and president of The American Association for Adult Education /Colby Chester, Chairman of General Foods

Two speakers with very different views attempt to answer the question which we re-state as "Whose Democracy is It?"

Technical Points: Many of the early recordings were not intended to be saved and were not always carefully handled. In this broadcast, there are a few skips at the beginning during Mr. Denny's introduction; they can be easily understood, however. Additionally, our program ends abruptly with a question about corporate inquiries into public education directed toward Colby Chester. After he answers the question, the program finishes.

Final Point: Despite any technical glitches, the discussion is an important one that echoes much that we hear in our present time. Serious seekers of historical precedence to current events will find it worthy of their time.

Please don't take my word for the anti earth antics of these brothers. It is an easy search to find these two. I believe that we need to pay close attention to them, be loud when we find yet another nasty bad thing that they have their greedy fingers in. 

This doesn't have anything to do with FRACKING but I think it is way past time that we TAX the hell out of these guys. 

November in Puerto Rico and finally it is starting to feel like our winter. The temperatures had been feeling like late August and early September, on and on into November.
That humid weather that normally we felt in August carried on till just a couple of weeks ago.
Storms still coming off the coast of Africa, we pay attention because it's not over till it's over, hurricane season. Climate, Global Warming, Big Business, Fracking among other things.

Fwd: NOT THIS YEAR FOR LEGAL POT IN PUERTO RICO




NOT THIS YEAR FOR LEGAL POT IN PUERTO RICO

Who said " There's always hope." My belief is the only way this is going to get passed is because of over crowded jails and the amount of $$$ it takes to house the first time 
offender !!  I hope the US States,  make big money on Pot taxes and show poor Puerto Rico the way.

Fwd: Got an idea for a petition?




Know of a problem in your area that ought to be solved? Start a petition on MoveOn's petition website so that other MoveOn members can help make it happen.

Start your Petition

Dear MoveOn member,

Here's how it'll go:

You see something that needs a change, so you start a petition on MoveOn's website.

You recruit your friends to sign it and they, in turn, get their friends.

We send it out to some of our members and they get really excited about it, so we send it to everyone in your city, your state, or maybe even all 8 million MoveOn members.

Now that you have a bunch of people on board, you organize them. We give you the support you need. You use our email tool to have them call their representatives, get more signers, go to events.

MoveOn pays for you to print up copies of your petition, and you deliver it to the person you're petitioning. You get on TV and in the newspaper. 

And you win.

It's happened hundreds of times already. It could very easily happen to you. All you need is a good enough idea and the willingness to put in the time. Show us you mean business and we'll be with you every step of the way. You really can do this. How about it?

Click here to start your own petition right now.

Thanks for all you do.

–Milan, Mariana, Eric, David, and the rest of the team

P.S. If you get 20 signatures on your petition, we'll email it to at least 1,000 people in your area to help it grow (assuming, of course, that it's consistent with MoveOn members' progressive values).
