"A New Nightmare" SOAPBOX 92 GUESTS DENNIS KUCINICH AND THAD RUSSELL

SHOCK AND AWE IN LIBYA
(SOAPBOX #92) – Cindy welcomes two notable guests.  Cindy’s first guest, Thaddeus Russell, is an historian and cultural critic, author of A Renegade History of the United States.  (And those are just his introductory credits!)  A true nonconformist, he has a long list of public appearances.  Yes, previously, our “Bad Thad” had moved past the social/ethical conservatism of our historical “cultural leaders” to focus on the actual people themselves.  He regularly argued that many white Americans envied slaves for good reason, since slave culture offered many liberating alternatives to the highly repressive and work-obsessed, anti-sex culture of the early United States.  He demonstrated that prostitutes, not feminists, won virtually all the freedoms that were denied to women but are now taken for granted.  In short, this man is a truly creative & revolutionary thinker.  It should come as no surprise the man today perceives himself as though he’s been on an island and yelling for three years now.  (It seems he doesn’t want to kill the world’s unfortunates in order to SAVE them.)  He asks why are today’s “liberal” people are not separating themselves from the slaughter of innocents?  Hey there, boyz and grrls: Can you say “Bad mass murderer?”  “Bad!”  (I knew you could!)

Cindy’s next guest is Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio,  discussing our military intervention in Libya.  Congressman Kucinich had SEVERAL objections to this action, all on quite serious grounds.  This is a new nightmare for people in another land and a new nightmare for the American people.  Yet the BIGGEST objection seems to be that the entire power to make war is given by our Constituation in Article I, section 8 to Congress; not to the President.  This is not an academic debate.  The Founders felt very strongly, indeed about putting the war powers in the hand of the country’s legislative body.  Dennis offers MANY important points to consider!
