Rev. Bookburn’s letter to Obama 2.21.09

I want to ask that policy be made without being obstructed by the opposition. It's healthy to seek input from all, but the GOP has lost all legitimate say in nearly all subjects, especially the economy, environment, social justice, and war. The economy is in shambles. From Reagan to W. Bush, the people of this nation and the world have seen disasters due to the forces of extremist policies and greed. In order for forward change and solutions to happen, drastic measures are needed. The days of corporate welfare, military overspending, de-regulation, globalization, and underfunding social services need to end. The waste is when there are policies and tax cuts that favor the top 1%. The waste is funding a vast prison industrial complex for mostly non-violent offenders, as well as the absurd war against marijuana. The waste is underfunding sex ed and family planning organizations while pumping money into unrealistic 'faith-based' non-professional 'counselors.' We need to move past myths and the fantasies that lead to the wrongful policies that lead our nation to crises. We need to avoid the mistakes of Bill Clinton and past Democrats of going to extremes to please the opposition (look how they rewarded him). The people of this nation and the world are understandably disillusioned. Real action and real change can reverse that. You'll need to be able to think and act independently. The words of the Rush Limbaughs, Pat Robertsons and John McCains of the nation have become increasingly irrelevant. You will ultimately leave a legacy of the highest honor if you truly represent change for working and non-working people, as well as those who depend on safety net programs. The rights and well-being of the most defenseless people and animals should always be the highest priority. The people will remain behind you as long as you are an ally. Respectfully, Rev. Bookburn - Radio Volta

‘The Christian god can easily be pictured as virtually the same god as the many ancient gods of past civilizations. The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this ragin three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites. To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.’

We have been told that Radio Volta should be able to get it up by Feb. 15. We’re going to do the anniversary show, but with elements of the Love Night, Erotic Interpretation of the SuperBowl and Hash Wednesday shows. This show will have much music and laughs. We’re also gearing up for a show series The Trial of George W. Bush. Simultaneous with that, we’ll balance the series with an introduction to international psychedelic music from the Love, Peace and Poetry series, which are new to us. We’re also making progress on making our animation project a reality. Radio Volta shall soon change the name and domain to VoltaRadio, with an automatic redirect. We’re running Mr. Z’s open letter to the President below.


Happy Birthday Co-Producer Pastor Rex Cat

RIP Lux Interior


Letter to the President – from Mr. Z


Dear Mr. President:


Having smoked marijuana "in the past" does not disqualify one from being a police officer, a judge, an Olympic Athlete, a political candidate, or even being elected President of the United States, and why should it?


After all, smoking marijuana is a fairly harmless pastime. In America, as well as in other parts of the world, it is often a rite of passage.


Two recent unrelated news items, connected by a common thread, caught my attention. Neither is earth-shattering, nor should they be. The President of the United States' half-brother was arrested in Kenya and charged with possession of marijuana. A few days later a British tabloid published a photograph of Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, smoking cannabis.


Neither of these events caused major scandals. The world knows that when it comes right down to it, marijuana is "no big deal." According to a study cited in the U.S. News & World Report, 42% of Americans have sampled reefer, in spite of it being illegal.


Marijuana has a minimal effect on people's lives. There are way more important matters at hand. Marijuana is really no big deal, unless you or someone you care about is in prison because of laws prohibiting marijuana.


I am currently a marijuana prisoner, incarcerated in the Federal Prison Camp at Jesup, Georgia. Approximately 10% of the prisoners here are serving sentences for marijuana only. The waste and absurdity of incarcerating someone for supplying a product that nearly half of all Americans have used, with no particular negative affect, challenges description.


Every year, more Americans are arrested on marijuana charges. Every arrest negatively affects a daisy chain of family, friends and community. Lives are put on hold while they sit in jails and prisons. Jobs are lost. Families go without income. Homes are lost. The productive capacity of the incarcerated lies fallow.


Millions of Americans have marijuana histories. Some become athletes. Some are elected to public office. Some of us go to Federal Prison.


It's time to reevaluate America's marijuana policy. It is time to let the marijuana prisoners go home and those in the marijuana underground join the mainstream. After the Vietnam War ended, war resistors were given amnesty. After the U.S. Civil War, Confederate prisoners were released and returned to their communities. There is a time to heal all wounds.


It is now our time, Mr. President. It's time to free the marijuana prisoners and end the War on Marijuana.


Most Respectively Yours,

Harold Baranoff

Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan (Thanks for Ruining America)

William Kleinknecht – Feb. 6, 2009

‘Reagan rolled back a century of progressive advances. And now we’re seeing the results of his terrible policies more clearly than ever.’


‘Ronald Reagan's 98th birthday is being celebrated today at a time that should be a cause for soul searching among his admirers. The conservative revolution that Reagan unleashed upon the nation and much of the world lay in ashes, and Washington is embarking on a new epoch of government intervention to eradicate the excesses of free-market purism. One would expect liberals to be out in the streets looking for statues of the Gipper to topple from their pedestals.

But nothing of the kind is happening. While George W. Bush is now the bane even of many conservatives, a Marine Corps contingent will lay a wreath at Reagan's gravesite safe in the knowledge that much of the nation holds his memory in a warm embrace.

Historians may one day view this as an odd historical conundrum, since Reagan's legacy is so clearly imprinted on the myriad of forces that have vitiated the American dream for millions of working people and brought wreckage to the world economy.

The continuing fallout from Reagan's policies – the meltdown of the financial sector, widening income inequality, the emergence of lockdown America, the obscene inflation of CEO compensation, the end of locally owned media, market crashes, blackouts, drug-company scandals, rampant greed and materialism -- is all around us. As D.H. Lawrence once wrote in another context, "The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins."

The subprime mortgage crisis, the root of the chaos in the financial sector, is a case in point. Its antecedents clearly lay within the Reagan administration, beginning with an appearance by Donald T. Reagan, Reagan's first treasury secretary, before the Senate banking committee in early 1981, when he laid out a detailed vision for near-complete deregulation of the financial industry.

On Regan's behalf, Richard Pratt, Reagan's first chairman of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, drafted the Garn-St. Germain Depository Institutions Act of 1982, which included a provision, Title VIII, that enabled lenders for the first time to issue adjustable-rate mortgages and other exotic loans, such as those requiring interest-only payments. The provision was aimed at helping rescue the savings and loan industry by allowing thrifts to respond to the volatility in interest rates that prevailed in the early 1980s, but it would be precisely these types of loans that brought about foreclosures on hundreds of thousands of home mortgages in 2007 and 2008.

Even more significant for the future of the American economy was the decision by Reagan's appointees at the Federal Reserve in 1987 to allow large bank holding companies to handle the underwriting of mortgage-backed securities. This measure was one of several aspects of financial deregulation in the 1980s and afterward that promoted banks' headlong rush into the securitization of mortgages, with the dire results that now engulf our nation.

But it wasn't just Reagan's championing of deregulation that weakened the American dream. While Reaganism has often been portrayed as the antithesis of the New Deal, it was more profoundly a repudiation of a long epoch of reform that, with some brief but notable interruptions, extended from the Populist era through the early 1970s. At the turn of the century, Progressivism brought about a political and cultural awakening whose reform impulses reached into every sector of American life: law, philosophy, economics, art, literature, education, the social sciences. The period brought about the creation of the Federal Trade Commission to protect the public from the most avaricious tendencies of big business, the enactment of important laws like the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906, and the establishment of new rights like woman suffrage. Through an explosion of good government groups, the average citizen began playing a greater role in public policy. Progressivism also spawned the concepts of business ethics and labor relations, the recognition that tending to the morale and working conditions of employees was smart management.

Reagan stood against everything that had been achieved in this age of reform. His constant attacks on the inefficiency of government, a rallying cry taken up by legions of conservative politicians across the country, became a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more money taken away from government programs, the more ineffective they became, and the more ineffective they became, the more ridiculous government bureaucrats came to be seen in the public eye. Gradually government, and the broader realm of public service, came to seem disreputable, disdained by the best and brightest college students planning their careers. And the image of government was dragged down even further by the behavior of politicians, who, imbued with the same exaltation of self-interest that is the essence of Reaganism, increasingly treat public office as a vehicle toward their own enrichment.

Reagan's brand of conservatism rippled across our society as thoroughly as did Progressivism. He disenfranchised the average citizen by inventing the soft-money machine that made large corporations the real power in Washington. He empowered corporate executives to abandon the concept of loyalty to employees, shareholders and communities, and weakened the bargaining power of labor. He presided over the slow creep of commercial values into virtually every sphere of American life. Commercialism has invaded realms where it was once verboten -- the non-profit sector, law, health care, politics, public schools, public radio and public television. Instead of public policy influencing the corporation to fit the needs of society, society is shaped to fit the needs of the corporation.

President Barack Obama was elected on a platform that envisioned nothing less than a repudiation of Reaganism. In his first weeks in office, Obama has proposed major government intervention in the economy, including new regulation of the financial sector. And yet he dare not utter criticism of Ronald Reagan. In his campaign, he expressed admiration for Reagan's leadership and the way in which he inspired Americans. Indeed, it is treated as received wisdom in Washington that the Republican party desperately needs to regain the type of leadership that Reagan brought to their party.

But leadership alone was hardly what was necessary to end the economic torpor bedeviling America at the end of the 1970s. History is replete with examples of populist leaders who filled the public squares with screaming throngs while leading their nations to ruin. In public policy, as in science, there are truths and there are untruths, and the wrong actions can have dire consequences The evil of stagflation and the decline of our manufacturing sector in the 1970s did require forceful leadership and renewed investment in the productive capacity of our nation, but not the corporate welfare and abandonment of working people that was the essence of Reaganism.

If America is serious about regaining its economic standing in the world, it is essential that we have a full public debate of what and who led us down the wrong path. Reagan should no longer be exempt from the scrutiny that his legacy so richly deserves.’
