SORT BY Relevancy
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the latest article by William Edstrom from Counter Punch titled, "Waiting for Collapse: USA Debt Bombs Bursting." as capitalism requires the accumulation of debt, which some argue resulted in the 2008 financial collapse at the federal level, a growing number of cities are going to have their "debt bombs" burst any time soon. As usual, we can expect the working class to pay the heaviest price.
Bob and Chris will also discuss the up-coming Workers World Party National Conference in New York City on November 7th and 8th. If you are in the area, we invite you to attend this conference with your fellow workers, workers who have been fighting capitalist oppression since 1959.
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, Bernie Sanders has been compared to Jeremy Corbyn, the newly elected Labour Party leader in the U.K.; however, as Election Boycott Advocate Christopher Alan Driscoll points out, there is a world of difference between the two: Corbyn is a life long socialist, a supporter of nationalization of banks, energy and railroads, and strengthening the National Health Service... also, he is staunchly anti-war, unlike Sanders, and the chairman of the Stop the War Coalition, the largest and most popular peace group in Britain. Are the Bernie Bots trying to pull the wool over our eyes?
Plus, we'll address President Putin's response to the Obama administration's accusation of sending troops to Syria, the recent GOP debate, and the Chinese economy and stock markets and what that means for our economy.
On this 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we will discuss the situation in Syria, the imperialist accusation that somehow Russia is building up troops in preparation for a military conflict, and Bernie Sanders' momentum in the polls.
Tune into Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates for a radical discussion few places elsewhere dare to have.
On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we begin by discussing the latest mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. The alleged shooter, Chris Harper Mercer, was a right-wing extremist who held white supremacist views, much like many rampage killers these days. Is capitalism to blame for the violent society we live in (since the Sandy Hook massacre, 142 school shootings have occurred)? Are white racially aggrieved males turning violent against their perceived enemies because of the conditions of capitalism? How about gun control, will we suddenly see a drop in rampages if enact more strict gun laws?
Russia is now conducting airstrikes on terrorists in Syria, the same terrorists that President Obama is defending. Plus, Putin and several other world leaders delivered speeches at the U.N. We'll discuss this and more.
On tonight's edition of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we'll discuss a recent article in the new Jacobin magazine, titled, " Struggles and Progress." How can an analysis of the Civil War help workers in 2015.
In another week in the capitalist United States, two television journalists were gunned down on live television. The man who filmed the attack and is believed to be responsible, Vester Flanagan, was a gay black man in America who couldn't find a job. Although clearly a disturbed individual, we'll discuss how our extremely stratified society under capitalism contributes to Vester's rage. The corporate media will mainly analyze the individual and omit and analysis of the underlying social conditions caused by capitalism.
This, plus your calls on Carson's Corner.
On today's show we will find out if Darrino made it on time to be a candidate and we will be talking about Blue Rodeo. Who's Blue Rodeo you ask? They are a Canadian musical band who never made it in the real world so now they are taking their frustrations on the Prime Minister Of Canada. They released a new song this week putting down Canada's Prime Minister. I have never purchased a Blue Rodeo album or single or ITunes, I don't even know what they sound like.We will go over which candidate is running where and as always we will taking your calls.
Join the chat board and get involved.
We will also be talking about how vile we are. A former listener called our show vile. Stop with the compliments Darrino and I are blushing.
The 20th anniversary of the Million Man March is being promoted with the words "Justice or Else!" What's the or else? In recent speech, Minister Louis Farrakhan called for African Americans to boycott Christmas as a response to racial injustice. How can we force justice by the withdrawal of our 1.9 trillion dollars from the U.S. economy during the season most businesses depend upon for their yearly profits? Who are we hoping to hurt with our boycott? How will their financial distress lead to a change of discriminatory laws? The procecution of police who killed citizens? The passing of sensible gun laws? The release of falsely accused prisoners? Do we need to work out a specific strategy to make sure our lack of buying gifts for friends and family produces the desired effects? Will enough people participate? Do we need to tie this boycott to a specific piece of legislation? Give us your views on the meaning of "justice or else!" What threat can we collectively carry out that can force a change and bring justice
