Sonic Overload 4/11/11

Yes, I rant a bit around the middle of the show—fed up, as usual, with the new budget being hammered out by Congress and Obama, barely averting a government shutdown. In brief, it’s obvious that Obama is willing to kowtow to the Republicans’ slash and burn economic policy. That means cuts to programs meant to protect the most vulnerable people in this country. What else is new? A radical agenda and Obama’s unwillingness to stand up the Republicans during the first two years of his administration has led us to this point. And when I hear Obama considering cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, I’m waiting for his announcement that he’s joined the Republican Party. OK, that’s a stretch but no matter how far to the center or right he moves, the teabaggers will still try to label him a socialist. And they’ll continue to destroy any progress that’s been made over the last 100 or so years, especially what’s left of the New Deal.

But enough of that—you’ll hear it on the show although the invective is held to a relative minimum. You’re here for the punk rock and that’s what you’ll get...
