Note to Iowa

For AlterNet, Joshua Holland writes: "While it's true that the big three have similar stances on a number of issues, on Iraq - the one that Democrats and swing voters say is either their top concern, or No. 2 after the economy - the top candidates' differences couldn't be more significant. In fact, only John Edwards among the top three Dems would effectively end the occupation of Iraq within a year of taking office."

How safe is Wifi?

Being exposed to the microwave (2.45GHz) radiation constantly emitted by WiFi routers is as safe as being in the main beam from a phone mast. But is that safe? Comparing the levels with those emitted by a mobile phone is not very helpful since we do not know those are safe either! There is evidence in some studies of longer term users of increased brain tumour risk on the side of the head they hold the mobile. There are reports of cancer clusters around phone masts but the government refuse to investigate. However 2 scientific studies in other countries show a trebling of cancer risk for exposure under 10 years . It may be more informative to compare the levels of microwaves with those that naturally existed up until 15 years ago when this technology started. You would find the levels are up to trillions of times higher now because the background microwave level is virtually zero. Is it sensible to compare these with light or with what used to exist in the microwave part of the spectrum? The European wide REFLEX project found human DNA shattered after short exposure to the levels we are exposed to now. The radiation intensity in the main beam from a phone mast is the same order of magnitude as a few meters from a WiFi router. (You can hire measuring equipment and see for yourself) These levels are below guidelines which is why the HPA is so confident about its study. However the guidelines are only intended to protect from short term heat shocks and do not protect against long term lower levels of exposure where heating is not the issue. All the independent scientists are calling for a revision of these out of date guidelines.

If you must have WiFi rather than cables then I would advise turn it off when not in use and especially at night.

Cell phone users tie up traffic

By Julie Steenhuysen

CHICAGO (Reuters) - If you're late for work, a driver using a cell phone may be to blame. U.S. researchers said on Wednesday that people who use cell phones while behind the wheel impede the flow of traffic, clog highways and extend commute times.

Ron Paul: Rage against the machine

by Devvy Kidd

Today is the Iowa caucus. In five days the New Hampshire primary will take place. Candidates from the Republican and Democrat parties are attempting to get the vote, no matter how many lies and false promises they have to make. The exception is Congressman Ron Paul http://devvy.net/candidates/paul_final.html , whose voting record for 22 years and his absolute consistent stand on constitutional government cannot be disputed. No flip-flopping, no tarts in the back ground, no scandals and this man will never sell us out to any special interest group in this country or globally, i.e., the Bilderberg group of world totalitarian monsters........

The Secret of Ron Paul's Success

by Cliff Kincaid

Many in the media are intrigued by Rep. Ron Paul’s success in the presidential campaign but usually focus on how much money he is raising. In terms of issues, some think he is rising in the polls because of his opposition to the Iraq War. That may be a factor, but my research convinces me that he is doing well primarily because he has a traditional Republican message of returning to smaller and less expensive government. More than that, however, he is talking about the threat posed by global institutions........

Ron Paul: Absolute faith in free markets & less government

Christian Science Monitor
by Gail Russell Chaddock

01/02/08

Ron Paul still looks surprised when his calls to follow the Constitution and restore a sound currency set off whoops of approval at a campaign stop. The 10-term GOP congressman from Texas has been making these points for 30 years, with little to show for it beyond hundreds of House votes on the short end of 434 to 1. Critics called him a crank. But lately, his views and values — the product of a lifetime of intense, self-directed study — are finding an audience. His message is basic: freedom and limited government. Repeal the welfare-warfare state. Get out of Iraq, now. Abolish the income tax. End the war on drugs. Put the dollar back on a more solid footing...

Economic outlook 2008: Darkening clouds

Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Dominick Armentano

01/02/08

Presidential election years usually are not recessionary but next year will be an exception. Several economic factors are colliding in an almost perfect storm to markedly slow the general economy and the stock market. The most important signal flashing recession is, of course, the subprime mortgage fiasco. After years of monetary inflation on the part of the Federal Reserve, individuals and families with poor credit were suckered into low-down-payment/low-interest adjustable mortgages that simply cannot be maintained or repaid under current conditions...

For the third straight month since the United States said it would improve processing and resettle 12,000 Iraqis by the end of the current budget year on Sept. 30., the number admitted has actually slid, the figures show...

Joe Napsha of The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports: "Americans are putting in more hours at work, about 42.5 hours in 2006, compared to about 37.5 hours in 2003, according to time-use surveys by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. The extra hours are a result of fewer employees to do work, fears of job security, a need for overtime pay and a hope for advancement, experts say."

The Legacy of Bush

The Bush Legacy

Conservative Courts Likely to Be Bush Legacy

David G. Savage, of The Los Angeles Times, writes, "After nearly seven years in the White House, President Bush has named 294 judges to the federal courts, giving Republican appointees a solid majority of the seats, including a 60%-to-40% edge over Democrats on the influential U.S. appeals courts."

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/010208F.shtml



The Bush Legacy (Take One)

Tom Engelhardt writes for TomDispatch, "If you don't mind thinking about the Bush legacy a year early, there are worse places to begin than with the case of Erla Osk Arnardottir Lilliendahl."

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/010208H.shtml



The Bush Legacy (Take Two)

Tom Engelhardt imagines what it would be like to rid ourselves of one legacy of the Bush administration - the "Global War on Terror."

http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/010908I.shtml



The Legacy of Bush II

Robert Scheer writes for Truthdig: "Curb your enthusiasm. Even if your favored candidate did well on Super Tuesday, ask yourself if he or she will seriously challenge the bloated military budget that President Bush has proposed for 2009. If not, military spending will rise to a level exceeding any other year since the end of World War II, and there will be precious little left over to improve education and medical research, fight poverty, protect the environment or do anything else a decent person might care about." And, The New York Times editorial board writes: "President Bush's 2009 budget is a grim guided tour through his misplaced priorities, failed fiscal policies and the disastrous legacy that he will leave for the next president. And even that requires you to accept the White House's optimistic accounting, which seven years of experience tells us would be foolish in the extreme."
