Tuesday, October 25, 2016 on Occupy EPIC Radio

7:30 AM EST -- call in line: 304-885-0708

The theme of the discussion is:The Fascist Danger.  

I am sure many, if not all of us on the side of the glass half full perspective on the future of humanity, have used, or considered using, the word "Fascist" in connection with the Trump phenomenon. What do we mean by that? Is it mainly weaknesses in democracy and equality that foster it? Is it economically determined? Is it a fatal human flaw? What is the path out? What are the best chances for positive momentum on the inequality questions (reversing austerity) after a Clinton victory -- both in legislatures and the streets -- would that lessen the "fascist" threat?

Getting Ready

The Pig Poet

The Poetry Show on EPIC Radio this morning, 7:30 - 9:00 AM
Reading selections from David Lee -- A Legacy of Shadows. 
Lee is known as "the Pig Poet". Tune in and find out why!

Speaking of pigs -- as you will hear -- they surpass the degraded Trump cartoon by orders of magnitude in dignity. Again, if Trump can't persuade you to vote against him -- no one can. His cult will exact a heavy personal, moral and social cost on those who get sucked in, for whatever reasons, whether rotten self-esteem, or toxic cocktails of justified and unjustified resentments. If not renounced, they  will lead straight to hell. And if they are not defeated, they will take us all to hell with them.

Edgar Lee Masters on Poetry Monday on EPIC Radio

Poetry Monday on EPIC Radio
Edgar Lee Masters
7:30 AM
Call IN number: (304) 278-4113

Edgar Lee Masters was born on August 23, 1868 in Garnett, Kansas, where his father had briefly moved his family in order to set up a law practice. Soon, however, the family returned to the western Illinois farmlands, and Masters attended public schools in Petersburg and Lewistown. He attended Knox College for a year but was forced to withdraw because of his family's financial difficulties. He read law with his father and was admitted to bar in 1891. He practiced law for nearly thirty years, first in Chicago and later in New York. For several years beginning in 1903,  he was the law partner of Clarence Darrow. Darrow is remembered today for his defense of John Thomas Scopes who was prosecuted for teaching evolution in Tennessee in 1925. Masters published several books and plays, some pseudonymously to protect his legal practice, before his masterwork, Spoon River Anthology, appeared in 1915. The book is a series of over 200 short free verse dramatic monologues spoken in the voices of deceased residents of the fictional town of Spoon River. The collection was considered scandalous because of its frank treatment of topics such as sex, suicide, abortion, blasphemy, and hypocrisy. It proved wildly popular, going through several editions rapidly, and became a classic in American literature.  Although Masters continued to write throughout the rest of his life, he would never again equal the critical and popular success of Spoon River Anthology. He died on March 5, 1950 in a convalescent home in Philadelphia, PA. His body was returned to Petersburg, Illinois, to be buried. 

This week's featured poem is "Fiddler Jones," from Spoon River Anthology. 


The earth keeps some vibration going
There in your heart, and that is you.
And if the people find you can fiddle, 
Why, fiddle you must, for all your life. 
What do you see, a harvest of clover?
Or a meadow to walk through to the river? 
The wind's in the corn; you rub your hands 
For beeves hereafter ready for market;
Or else you hear the rustle of skirts
Like the girls when dancing at Little Grove. 
To Cooney Potter a pillar of dust
Or whirling leaves meant ruinous drouth;
They looked to me like Red-Head Sammy
Stepping it off, to "Toor-a-Loor."
How could I till my forty acres
Not to speak of getting more, 
With a medley of horns, bassoons and piccolos
Stirred in my brain by crows and robins
And the creak of a wind-mill—only these? 
And I never started to plow in my life
That some one did not stop the in the road
And take me away to a dance or picnic.
I ended up with forty acres;
I ended up with a broken fiddle—
And a broken laugh, and a thousand memories, 
And not a single regret.

Paris On the Potomac at EPIC Radio


The Paris on the Potomac Show


7:30 AM  TODAY -- JOHN CASE AND Karen Caudle on all things Shepherdstown

WITH David Manthos from SKYTRuth.ORG and JIM Probst from Citizens Climate lobby

CALL IN LINE: 304-885-0708

Citizens climate Lobby is an international organization started in San Diego in 2007 with presently 341 chapters in the US, [5in WV] and at least a dozen other countries. We work to create the political will for a livable world. We do this through outreach, such as the event on Thurs. as well as letters and opeds in print media and radio and TV. Are primary focus is our proposal known as Fee and Dividend which would put a steadily rising fee on carbon emissions with the monies collected returned in the form of a dividend to US
households in equal shares. 

The effect of this would be to make fossil fuel produced energy more expensive and  renewables would become more competitive and ultimately rise to the top as the most efficient and sustainable way to produce our energy needs. We anticipate that our
proposal will be introduced as a bill in the next congress and we are looking for all hands on deck to help promote this first.
