SORT BY Relevancy
There are many things of the past that have faded into just memories. A and P food stores no longer dot the landscape. Woolworth's are also distant memories. THe American Football League was swallowed up by the NFL and few traces of its' exsistance remain.
American Motors has gone the way of the do do bird and it is time for the NAACP to follow suit. Just the name is enough for me to not be able to take it serioulsy as an agent for change in the 21st century. Real "colored people???" If Rush Limbuagh got a blast about "colored people" liberal would lose their damned minds. So like a boxer that has stayed too long the NAACP stumbles punchdrunk through the days stammering nonesense. Its time to put up the gloves.
The Election Boycott Advocates welcome a very special guest to the show. Deputy Editor at the Greanville Post, Alya Rea, joins the show to discuss the relationship between the United States, Russia and Ukraine.
The Following is Rea's bio from the Greanville Post:
Alevtina Rea is a researcher, analyst and writer and a strong supporter of social justice and human rights. For 7 years (2005 – 2012), she worked as an assistant editor with CounterPunch, a leading left political journal in the Anglophone world that exemplifies, along with The Greanville Post and a small cluster of sites, what an oppositional press should be like. She believes that “the role of the media is to educate, inform and shed light where there is none” in order to counter state-sponsored propaganda. Given the appalling criminality and atrocities committed by Western imperialism around the world, she believes that Russia—by opposing such power, and by her growing cooperation with Latin American and Asian countries— offers a new hope to humanity. Ms. Rea is also a contributing author to CounterPunch, Cyrano’s Journal Today, Uncommon Thought Journal, and the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's Sunday, and it's time for the Election Boycott Advocates to appear on Carson's Corner. Last week after a great discussion on the origins of socialism and social democracies, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement to the show. We will discuss our vision for the future of America and the current issues that face working class Americans- or better yet, the very system that oppresses all of us. How do we overturn that system? What do we put in its place? We will attempt to answer all these questions and more.
On the heels of the Ferguson verdict this is the hot debate in the Black Community. Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and can make or break many retailers. In protest many Black consumers have decided to boycott Black Friday to show the power of the Black Dollar. I have expressed my opinion here Why I do NOT think Blacks should boycott Black Friday, but I want to hear from you. Let's talk about it.

The Election Boycott Advocates welcome one of their own to the show, Christopher Alan Driscoll. Driscoll, who was Ralph Nader's media director for his three presidential campaigns, has a firm grasp on the origins of socialism that he will discuss. EBA members Bob Carson and Thomas Baldwin want to explore how to arrive at socialism here in the U.S. with Christopher. We want to know how we create a more equitable and sustainable society that is owned by the workers.
Plus, in hour two, we'll delve into all things Ferguson.
On this edition of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason of the Zeitgeist Movement to the program to discuss how to create a new sustainable world. The working class undoubtedly faces many challenges- change is easier said than done. However, there are steps that we can take to overcome the ruling class. Harry Cason believes that we have to sell everyone a program that contains enormous benefits to everyone. Bob Carson believes we have to reevaluate the way we look at the market system and move beyond capitalism. Capitalism in its current ( and arguably any form) is not designed to address human needs, and therefore continuing capitalism will only further increase the pain of the working class. This consciousness spurred on by the miserable conditions of the working class will lead to a revolution. Christopher Driscoll believes that we need to pull out the rug from the ruling class- the rug of legitimacy- and establish worker owned factories and workplaces. Thomas Baldwin believes a new set of principles will emerge from a value system. All believe that the ballot box is no ride to power for the working class, so what do we do? What course of action should we take? Tune into Carson's Corner to hear this very unique discussion that you will hear few places elsewhere.
Only a handful of Minneapolis NAACP members received notice about an upcoming election scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7. This election was to elect a new president and executive board. Join the team of Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen as we examine what has happened to the Minneapolis NAACP.
It's Sunday, October 26th, 2014, and it's time to welcome the Election Boycott Advocates to Carson's Corner. It's been a very interesting week for the Election Boycott Advocates. Despite the fact that the Democratic Underground, a major website dedicated to promoting one faction of the business party, the Democratic Party, banned the Election Boycott Advocates after just one post, other sites have begun to take notice. The point is clear: the Election Boycott Advocates are gaining steam and are not going away, despite the wishes of those vested in the political system. As cohost Christopher Driscoll said on this program last week, it's starts with non-compliance. We will not participate in phony elections to prop up a corporate government for the ruling class. We will no longer march with our oppressors. We are on a mission to spread non-compliance.
This week, Thomas Baldwin, Christopher Driscoll, Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement, will continue to have the discussion on how to change our system. Should we become more of a social democracy and increase the amount of social systems in America? Should we completely move beyond capitalism and bring democracy to ownership and the workplace? Build our own institutions? All of these solutions are certainly valid, and will be discussed in greater detail. We also welcome any and all calls. Unlike other shows, we don't screen callers. We welcome any point of view on the air. Make sure to join us at 9pm est.
