This is Reefer Madness II, concocted by the same industries who did RM I...important whether or not one cares about "smoking" of any plant.

IMMIGRATION DEBATES UP IN THE US SENATE, NEW SANCTUARY MOVEMENT LAUNCHED IN THE U.S. (tags)
The US Senate, after a long delay will finally begin debates this coming Wednesday, May 16, on the much-awaited comprehensive immigration reform bill that will decide the fate of more than 12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. The issue: Amnesty or a guest worker program? Senator Arlan Specter wanted the Senate Bill 2611 to be revived while the White House proposes a very expensive “ temporary guest worker program” The democratic party promised a comprehensive immigration reform that will be favorable to the large immigrant community where it derived its support during the last elections. On the other hand, the traditionally anti-immigrant republican party is trying to win over the conservative sector of the immigrant population by giving a limited reform. President Bush, whose wife is a Mexican, promised an immigration reform bill by the end of this year. Senators Ted Kennedy and John McCain are also bent to revive their own immigration bill that died last year during the Senate debates that gave way to SB 2611 that the Republican controlled lower house killed in 2006. The senate killed the oppressive HR 4437 but gave way to some of its anti-immigrant features in the SB 2611 that did not pass the republican controlled lower house. CDIR Immigrant Rights Update

Should the Irish be Trusting the Brits? (tags)
The Irish people want peace, with justice, in the Brit-occupied Six Counties of N. Ireland. This is why, in 1998, they voted for the “Good Friday Agreement” (GFA), a formula for power sharing. At an Irish peace forum on 11/18/05, at Georgetown U., panelists debated the GFA. They all seem to agree the now-suspended Six County “Assembly,” had to be restored in order to make any additional progress. However, many other issues, like building trust, remain.

BUSH CAN WIN THE WAR TODAY (tags)
Unlike Reagan and Nixon, Bush has no one to pardon him. Cheney already said he won't run for president. The tattered flag he cowers behind can no longer hide the tyrant who has tortured, murdered, and robbed his way to world domination. He can hardly buy an audience any more. He ordered the military to listen to him yesterday. Win the war Bush. Just point your aircraft at the ground.

AUTHOR KITTY KELLEY PREPARES 'COUP DE GRACE' FOR GEORGE BUSH DYNASTY (tags)
George Bush's family offers a deep, dark mine of scandalous material as it threatens to become a self-serving dynasty that is bigger than the US Constitution. Kelley's book about the would-be dynasty could be the biggest obstacle to its becoming a reality, bigger than Michael Moore's film "Fahrenheit 9/11" because it will cause more discussion. Anyway, the big question remains, Did Sharon Bush spill the beans to Kitty Kelley? Read on.
