How Tough Is Our President?

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "Latest word from the White House is that the President still supports a public option but is also standing by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius's remark last weekend that a public insurance plan is 'not the essential element' of health-care reform. So where, exactly, is the White House on the public option? Just about where it is on the question of whether it agreed with Big Pharma to bar Medicare from using its bargaining clout to get lower drug prices -- or didn't. In other words, we don't know."

Stop Corporate Terrorism

The Progressive Populist: "For sheer, unmitigated gall, it's hard to beat the conservatives who are mounting a last-ditch campaign to derail meaningful health care reform. First, the health insurance and pharmaceutical companies bribed Congress members with millions of dollars in campaign contributions to keep expansion of Medicare - the most efficient way to provide affordable health coverage to every American - 'off the table.'"

Ban on phone masts on Sefton Council land could be lifted

Aug 19 2009 by Nick Moreton, Formby Times

A LIFTING of the controversial ban on phone masts being placed on council property will be discussed at Sefton’s next full council meeting, in September.

A moratorium currently exists which prohibits the council from putting mobile telecommunications on its land and buildings.

Councillors agreed the moratorium in July 2000 over concerns for public safety, amenity and the visual impact of phone masts.

However, the council has little or no say on the siting of phone masts, apart from when they require planning permission, and critics say the ban has lead to masts being put up in places that are less acceptable to the community, such as in residential areas near schools and offices, when they could be put in places such as cemeteries or on the end of Southport pier.

Lohnsenkung und Aufhebung des Kündigungsschutzes zur Krisenbekämpfung

„Es war schon vor Jahren nicht schwer vorherzusagen, dass in Spanien die Immobilienblase platzen wird. Da auch die sozialistische Regierung nicht gegensteuerte, trifft die Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise das Land besonders heftig wegen der allgemein miesen Rahmendaten. Es steht als Beispiel, wie eine neoliberale Deregulierung in vielen Jahren dafür gesorgt hat, dass sie besonders hart trifft. Doch die Arbeitgeber nutzen sie nun zum Generalangriff auf verbliebene Rechte, statt nach eigenen Verantwortlichkeiten zu suchen. Sie setzen dabei auf Konfrontation, fordern eine Lohnsenkung, die Aufhebung des Kündigungsschutzes und geringere Abfindungen. Das klingt zwar spanisch, doch die Vorstellungen geistern auch in Deutschland durch viele Köpfe und spätestens nach der Wahl wird derlei auch hier vorangetrieben, was von Freiburg bis Flensburg in Hinterzimmern diskutiert wird und derzeit nur manchmal und leise die Öffentlichkeit erreicht…“ Artikel von Ralf Streck auf Telepolis vom 18.08.2009 http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/30/30943/1.html

Bomben und Panzer bringen weder Frieden noch Demokratie

19. August 2009

Im Zusammenhang mit den Präsidentenwahlen am 20. August eskaliert die Gewalt in Afghanistan. Dazu erklärt Christine Buchholz, Mitglied im Geschäftsführenden Parteivorstand:

Die Bundeswehr muss ihre Rolle als Kriegspartei am Hindukusch beenden und abziehen. Bomben und Panzer bringen weder Frieden noch Demokratie. Die Truppen der USA und der NATO lösen keines der Probleme, sie sind das Hauptproblem für eine friedliche Entwicklung in Afghanistan. Die NATO hat seit seiner Einsetzung als Präsident das Regime Karsai unterstützt. Karsai fungiert als Adressat für die milliardenschweren Zuwendungen internationaler Geber. Immer wieder gibt es Vorwürfe, er habe in seiner Position durch die Verteilung von Pfründen ein persönliches Patronagesystem aufgebaut. Er gehe mit einem Septett von Warlords ins Rennen, die fast alle als mutmaßliche Kriegsverbrecher auf entsprechenden Listen der UNO und mehrerer Menschenrechtsorganisationen stehen. Vor Beginn der heißen Wahlkampfphase habe er zahlreiche Vereinbarungen mit einflussreichen Warlords, Regionalfürsten, Gouverneuren, Parteichefs und Stammesältesten geschlossen und diesen bei erfolgreicher Wiederwahl Teilhabe an der Macht versprochen. DIE LINKE fordert den Abzug der deutschen Soldaten aus Afghanistan und weiß sich damit im Einklang mit einer Mehrheit in der Bevölkerung. 69 Prozent der Bundesbürgerinnen und Bundesbürger hatten sich in einer repräsentativen Umfrage im Juli für einen Truppenabzug ausgesprochen. Die Bundesregierung betreibt stattdessen die Ausweitung des Truppeneinsatzes. Deshalb sind auch wichtige Hilfsorganisationen auf Distanz zu dieser Politik gegangen, wie erst kürzlich die Welthungerhilfe. Ihr Generalsekretär Wolfgang Jamann wirft der Bundesregierung zu Recht vor, dass die Entwicklungshilfe durch die Wiederaufbauteams in den Provinzen als Instrument für politische und militärische Interessen missbraucht wurde und sogar Teil der Militärstrategie geworden ist.

Foreign demand for long-term US securities rises

China and Russia trimmed their holdings: The Treasury is auctioning record amounts of debt to cover what it estimates will be a $1.85 trillion budget deficit this year. If overseas buyers don't continue purchasing U.S. debt, some economists worry that would mean falling demand at Treasury debt auctions and rising interest rates.

Scalia says there's nothing unconstitutional about executing the innocent

In Justice Scalia's world, the law has no problem with sending an innocent man to die. One wonders why we even bother to have a Constitution.

The other day, President Obama made a speech in which, among other things, he pledged that the U.S. would withdraw from Iraq on schedule. The question is: according to whose schedule? Because shortly after Obama spoke, the Iraqi government announced it wants to hold a referendum in January on whether U.S. forces should leave earlier than the 2011 deadline stipulated in the status of forces agreement signed last year by the Bush administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki...

This Is Reform?

By Bob Herbert

It's never a contest when the interests of big business are pitted against the public interest. So if we manage to get health care "reform" this time around it will be the kind of reform that benefits the very people who have given us a failed system, and thus made reform so necessary.
