Japan Politics ElectionsTOKYO — Japan’s opposition swept to a historic victory in elections Sunday, crushing the ruling conservative party that has run the country for most of the postwar era and assuming the daunting task of pulling the economy out of its worst slump since World War II.

A grim-looking Prime Minister Taro Aso conceded defeat just a couple hours after polls had closed, suggesting he would quit as president of the Liberal Democratic Party, which has ruled Japan for all but 11 months since 1955.

I just have to plug this awesome progressive radio station

leave a comment »

airamericapenThis has got to be one of the best radio station ever! Well it’s a lot more than a radio now a days (Former name was Air America Radio). It’s very hard to find liberal/progressive radio, since the conservatives like Rush Limbaugh dominate radio. The only one I don’t care for is Rhandi Rhodes (I think that’s the spelling) But everyone else on there is good. Ron Reagan is my favorite (He’s nothing like his father Ronald Reagan LOL!)

You can listen live without a radio by clicking here or here.
