This week Occupy Radio takes a deep breath, and looks at the issues through a comedic lens.
From crude oil spills to the desperation of the wealthy, to Jill Stein's Green Shadow Cabinet and the utter disappointment of the Obama presidency, and how we are all enslaved by "psychopathic greed monkeys". Everything is fair game as comedian Lee Camp joins us this week on Occupy Radio.

The Founding Fathers told us that the government of the United States needs regular doses of revolt to keep it responsive to the needs of the masses. With the government enthralled by corporate America, the Occupy Movement heeded that revolutionary call, and was met with predictable repression.
This week on Occupy Radio we talk with Beau Hodai about his report, "Dissent or Terror: How the Nation's Counter Terrorism Apparatus, in Partnership with Corporate America, Turned on Occupy Wall Street".

Jason Leopold writes for Al Jazeera. See his articles here. Leopold, just back from Guantanamo, says that since President Obama's speech, no one has been freed, no one has quit hunger striking, and the number of people being force-fed has increased. Abusive policies are being adopted, in part in apparent response to the hunger strike. The top commander at the prison is suspected of perjury, in addition to cruel and inhuman treatment. The U.S. military's own lawyers say he is unfit for command. The prison has kept hidden listening devices in rooms where prisoners meet with attorneys, and has accessed defense lawyers' files and emails. There remains one way out for prisoners of this camp: death.
