Hooked Into You (tags)
Reinvigorated, jump started, reenergized, pumped up and ready to go, just the right amount of boost, we hear them all when it comes to the last stretch of elections. “Getting all tingly and excited for the next four years that I know I will be spending with you.” “The American people will be making the right decision by voting for me.” “Out with the old and in with the new.” “Now's not the time to give in.” Either way both of them seem to agree, “You'll be making the right decision by voting for me this coming election.”

Time for DISSENT is Now,=. Dont let OUR govt try to shut us up or out. (tags)
Why is Congress not receiving calls and emails suddenly ? Does OUR govt not have enough funds for a decent size computer or telephone service ? Could it be that it is 'closed' so as not to hear what we HAVE TO SAY LOUDLY ? "We dont want that bill passed to bail out financial & investment corps"....is it not shouted out loud and clear enough? by so many, in blogs, commentaries, and over many personal daily conversation.....

La reivindicación de la libertad de expresión ha sido eterna compañera de viaje de las luchas y de los avances democráticos. Aunque es muy reciente (1993) la institución del Dia Mundial de la Libertad de Prensa http://portal.unesco.org/es/ev.php-URL_ID=20261&URL_DO=DO_PRINTPAGE&URL_SECTION=201.html y los efectos de los planteamientos que se hicieron para instituir la celebración sean, el 3 de mayo de 2008, más impactantes que nunca, solamente 1 de las aperturas de los 16 medios más representativos de las opiniones convencionales francesa y española hace alusión a la celebración:
Carta de la señora Maigret al Emilio de Rousseau (tags)
La carta que usted dirige a las Visitadoras de Vargas Llosa ha incluido mucha emoción en nuestros debates. Emoción por el “Alba de los hijos que no tuvimos” que parece ser el primer elemento que une a ustedes. Yo tampoco he tenido hijos ni tomado la decisión de no tenerlos y tras sentirme incómoda por lo que me parecía una barrera de exclusión en el debate, quiero expresarle mi agradecimiento, porque, finalmente, la perspectiva que usted imprime ala mismo me parece altamente positiva.

Again, Let the Immigration Debates Commence (tags)
Now that the Immigration Overhaul /Reform Bill or S.B. 1639 is being debated in the Senate, much emotions had been invested in the debate and a lot of sparks have flew and have lighted the dark night of the long wait. The LA Times today, June 26 hit the issue on the head: “ Conservatives continue to brand the legalization plan as amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants they say should be forced to go home. Religious groups have decried the weakened emphasis on family immigration. Immigrant-rights groups complain that temporary workers can never become citizens.

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

Time to Dump Bush and Keller (tags)
As an editor, holding a story is as biased and manipulative of public opinion as running one. No credible, honest journalist can make those decisions. If you've got it, you have to run it, and the Times' Keller failed that basic test, proving he's nothing but an administration shill.

Media Give Bush a Free Pass on the Bulge (tags)
While the story of Bush’s mystery bulge is still all over the web, and has become a source of yucks on the comedy circuit, the major media are failing to press the White House on the serious question: What is that thing and why does the president have to wear it, not just at debates, but even in his pickup truck on the ranch?
I Was Arrested but the Real Crime is the Corporate Hijacking of Our Democracy (tags)
Every time I engage in non-violent civil disobedience against an oppressive government, I revel in the power that we the people actually have. If more people engaged in civil disobedience more often, we would change the oppressive power structure much more quickly. I have been charged with trespassing on private property and the failure to obey a reasonable order by the police. But you and I know that the real crime is the corporate hijacking of our democracy.
