Bundesregierung beschließt 13%iges Armutsrisiko - 36 Prozent erhalten Niedriglöhne

Das Bundeskabinett verabschiedete am Mittwoch (25. Juni) in Berlin den 3. Armuts- und Reichtumsbericht der Bundesregierung. Dem Bericht ist zu entnehmen, dass 2005 über 36 Prozent der Beschäftigten für Niedriglöhne arbeiteten. Die Armutsrisikoquote für die Gesamtbevölkerung Deutschlands habe 2005 bei 13 Prozent gelegen. Die Bundesregierung hob hervor, dass demgegenüber das Armutsrisiko im europäischen Durchschnitt bei 16 Prozent gelegen habe. Die Linksabgeordnete Katja Kipping wies allerdings darauf hin, dass dem Deutschen Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW) zufolge das Armutsrisiko in Deutschland bei 18,3 Prozent liege. Kipping erklärt die große Diskrepanz dadurch, dass "die von der Bundesregierung bei der Armutsberichterstattung bevorzugte Methode" dazu führe, dass Geringqualifizierte, Migranten und Familien mit kleinen Kindern "untererfasst werden". So käme die Bundesregierung, dass angeblich nur 13 Prozent der Bevölkerung von Armut bedroht seien, statt 18 Prozent. Außerdem kritisiert sie: "Die monatliche Armutsrisikogrenze sollte seriösen Auswertungen zufolge nicht wie im Entwurf des Armutsberichts bei 781 Euro sondern dem DIW folgend bei 880 Euro angesetzt werden."

AKW's sind keine Klimaretter - Kein Ausstieg aus dem Ausstieg

Zur Zeit wird vor allem von Seiten der CDU/CSU die Rettung des Klimas durch Atomkraftwerke gefordert. Wir haben schon beim Weltklimagipfel in Bali unsere Gegenposition vertreten.

Kein Ausstieg aus dem Ausstieg

DIE LINKE lehnt die von führenden Unionspolitikern erneut geforderte Verlängerung der Laufzeiten von Atomkraftwerken ab. Dazu erklärt das Mitglied des Parteivorstandes Wolfgang Methling:

Den von führenden CDU- und CSU-Politikern erneut geforderten Ausstieg aus dem Ausstieg aus der Nutzung der Kernenergie in Deutschland lehnt DIE LINKE entschieden ab. Die Kennzeichnung der Atomenergie als "Ökoenergie" ist zynisch. Die Forderung nach einem "Atomkonsens II" mit längeren Laufzeiten der Kraftwerke bedeutet vor allem höhere Gewinne für die Energiekonzerne und eine weitere Belastung der künftigen Generationen mit radioaktiven Abfällen. Die fortgesetzte Nutzung der Kernenergie verzögert den notwendigen Kurswechsel auf den Ausbau der Nutzung erneuerbarer Energien. In der LINKEN gibt es eindeutige Beschlusslagen zur Überwindung des nuklearen Energiezeitalters.

68 Prozent wollen kein AKW, auch wenn Strom umsonst wäre

Wieder eine Meinungsumfrage zur Atomenergie: 68 Prozent der Bundesbürger würden den Bau eines neuen Atomkraftwerks in ihrem Wohnort selbst dann ablehnen, wenn sie dafür lebenslang kostenlosen Strom bekämen. Das geht aus einer am Mittwoch (16. Juli) veröffentlichten Emnid-Umfrage für das Magazin "Vanity Fair" hervor. Unter dem Eindruck der Unfälle im US-Atomkraftwerk Harrisburg (Three Miles Island) 1979 und Tschernobyl 1986 lehnen die Deutschen die Atomkraft weiterhin offenbar mit großer Mehrheit ab. Anfang Juli kam es in Frankreich zur Freisetzung von Radioaktivität aus der französischen Atomanlage Tricastin. Für öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit sorgte auch eine Studie im Auftrag des Bundesamtes für Strahlenschutz (BfS), wonach das Krebsrisiko von Kindern mit zunehmender Nähe ihres Wohnortes zu deutschen Atomkraftwerken ansteigt.

Scalia Cites False Information in Habeas Corpus Dissent

Marjorie Cohn writes for Truthout: "To bolster his argument that the Guantanamo detainees should be denied the right to prove their innocence in federal courts, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent in Boumediene v. Bush: 'At least 30 of those prisoners hitherto released from Guantanamo have returned to the battlefield.' It turns out that statement is false."

What Boumediene means

CounterPunch
by Joanne Mariner

06/25/08

The Supreme Court ruling in Boumediene v. Bush was a nail in Guantanamo’s coffin. For the third time in four years, the Supreme Court sent a strong message that it disagrees with the Bush Administration’s detainee policies.The Court’s 70-page opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, holds that prisoners in US custody at Guantanamo have the right to challenge their detention via a fair process in federal court. Specifically, the decision says that the Military Commissions Act of 2006, which stripped the detainees of their right of access to the courts, represents an unconstitutional suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. The ruling overturned a lower court decision that found that the 2006 law was constitutional. Like the Court’s previous Guantanamo decisions, the ruling is a victory for individual rights. But viewed as a whole, along with the laws and executive orders that they address, the decisions also provide an interesting case study in the checks and balances, highlighting the complex power relationships among, and decision-making processes of, the three branches of government...

Is war good for the economy?

AntiWar.Com
by Justin Raimondo

06/25/08

Somewhere, George Orwell isn’t smiling. He’d no doubt be appalled, and a little nonplused, by the accuracy of his speculations in Nineteen Eighty-Four. In the novel, you’ll recall, the deliberate impoverishment of the ordinary ‘proles’ and the Outer Party types was a matter of INGSOC policy, a theme underscored by the general shabbiness of Orwell’s dystopia, what with the constant shortages and the way thing always seemed to be literally and physically falling apart. Particularly striking is the Orwellian presentiment that the world of the future is bound to be poorer and, simultaneously, engaged in constant warfare. This prediction seemed, for quite a while, to be one of the few he got wrong. Yet Orwell, it turns out, was right; it’s just that the productive power of capitalism in the U.S. was so great that it coasted along for a long time on sheer momentum...

Many States Turning to Paper Ballots for Fall

The Boston Globe's Brian C. Mooney reports: "Florida's election fiasco in 2000 prompted many states to adopt electronic touch-screen voting systems, but after a spate of malfunctions and meltdowns in 2004 and 2006, paper ballots are making a big comeback."

http://www.truthout.org/article/many-states-turning-paper-ballots-fall



Check That Vote

New York Times editors say: "Electronic voting is notoriously vulnerable to technical glitches and vote theft. By now, most states have passed good laws requiring paper records of every vote cast - an important safeguard. But that is not enough. States also need strong audit laws to ensure that machine totals are vigilantly checked against the paper records. That is the only way that voters will be able to trust electronic voting."

Then there's a select group that are masters of the universe in the ever-expanding military-corporate complex, regularly scoring more than a billion tax dollars a year from the Department of Defense. Unlike Lockheed, Boeing, and Northrop Grumman, however, most of these billion-dollar babies manage to fly beneath the radar of media (not to mention public) attention. If appearing at all, they generally do so innocuously in the business pages of newspapers. When it comes to their support for the Pentagon's wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq, they are, in media terms, missing in action."

Regierung plant Chipkarte für Arbeitnehmer

„Elektronischer Einkommensnachweis: Die Arbeitsdaten der rund 40 Millionen Arbeitnehmer in Deutschland sollen bald per Chipkarte gespeichert werden. Der digitale Schlüssel soll die Beantragung etwa von Kinder- oder Elterngeld erleichtern - und so viel Papier und Geld sparen…“ Meldung beim Spiegel online vom 23.06.2008 http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/0,1518,561562,00.html

Aus dem Text „… Pro Jahr wird mit einer Entlastung der Unternehmen um 25 Millionen Euro gerechnet, wie aus dem Juni-Monatsbericht "Schlaglichter der Wirtschaftspolitik" des Wirtschaftsministeriums hervorgeht. Jede weitere in das Verfahren einbezogene Bescheinigung wird demnach zu einer weiteren Entlastung von rund fünf Millionen Euro führen. Die Kosten für die Chipkarte nebst digitaler Signatur müssen die Arbeitnehmer tragen. Dem Bericht zufolge liegen sie bei zehn Euro für drei Jahre.

Datenschützer kritisiert ELENA

„Thilo Weichert, der Leiter des unabhängigen Landeszentrums für Datenschutz Schleswig-Holstein (ULD), hat das Verfahren zum elektronischen Einkommensnachweis (ELENA) scharf kritisiert. Dieses Verfahren soll heute vom Bundeskabinett beschlossen werden. Mit ELENA werde nicht der schönen griechischen Göttin gehuldigt, sondern eine hässliche, datenschutzwidrige Großdatenbank in die Welt gesetzt, heißt es in der Stellungnahme des Datenschützers…“ Artikel von Detlef Borchers in Heise news vom 25.06.2008 http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Datenschuetzer-kritisiert-ELENA--/meldung/109961

Aus dem Text: „…Nach einem Bericht der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung laufen die Arbeitgeber gegen diese "Stechuhr für alle" Sturm, weil der Verwaltungsaufwand für die individuelle Zeitdatenspeicherung sehr hoch sein soll. In jedem Fall würde er die Unfallversicherungen nur wenig entlasten. Sollte das "Konjunkturprogramm für die Hersteller von Zeiterfassungssystemen" (FAZ) kommen, könnte die Gefahr bestehen, dass die solchermaßen anfallenden Arbeitszeitdaten auch für ELENA-Meldungen benutzt werden…“
