Don’t Ask Policies? Do Tell!
Today’s episode of vox pop pdx is titled Don’t Ask Policies. LISTEN HERE.
DON’T ASK DON’T TELL?
What do you think about a national policy that basically states that we must all agree to “not know” what we already know? Is that rational? Is that grown-up? Is that constitutional?
Where is your voice in the matter?
Tax breaks for the super wealthy?, unemployment benefits and jobs? Do you feel like a hostage?
What about wikileaks? What have you learned from the released documents? Do we have a right to know? Do you want to know?
Here’s some interesting food for thought on the subject.

Thanks for listening.

“Suffragist City” a small survey of Oregon citizens on voting
It would have been nice to sit around a coffee shop or a bar and talk with folks about politics and religion but alas everyone seemed to be somewhere else. It was a beautiful autumn day so they were probably on a nice hike in the Columbia Gorge. I walked around until I found a few people at bus stops and on the street and outside of grocery stores and working in their yards or painting houses. I asked them about the upcoming election. The first question I asked is “Are you going to vote?” Sadly, most people are not really very interested or informed. Some are too disenchanted ever since the Supreme Court gave the Presidency to Bush. Several people just couldn’t think of a reason to be interested at all, especially younger voters. But I did meet a handful of people who still think their vote matters.
How about you? Join me on facebook and let’s talk civics.
