Joe Lieberman's Loyalties

Paul Rogat Loeb points out: "This isn't the first time Joe Lieberman's placed loyalty to his career above all other allegiances. Afraid that Connecticut's Democratic voters will reject him in the primary, he's now hedging his bets by planning to run as an Independent if he loses. 'I have loyalties that are greater than those to my party,' he says, and tries to make this sound noble."

Not in Our Name: The Voters' Pledge

"Americans must summon the civil courage to face what is being done in their name and to refuse to be accomplices. The Voters' Pledge is one way to do this. The Voters' Pledge is a project comprising many of the major organizations in the anti-war movement - United for Peace and Justice, Peace Action, Gold Star Families for Peace, Code Pink, and Democracy Rising - as well as groups with broader agendas like the National Organization for Women, Progressive Democrats of America, AfterDowningStreet.com, and magazines including the American Conservative and The Nation. The goal of this coalition is to build a base of anti-war voters that cannot be ignored by anyone running for office in the United States. We want millions of voters to sign the pledge and say no to pro-war candidates," writes Daniel Ellsberg.

Hartz IV-Fortentwicklungsgesetz: Erwerbslosen- und Sozialhilfeinitiativen kritisieren Bundesrats-Ausschüsse

06.07.06

Die Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft der Erwerbslosen- und Sozialhilfeinitiativen e.V. (BAG-SHI) kritisiert die Empfehlungen der Ausschüsse des Bundesrates zum so genannten Hartz IV-Fortentwicklungsgesetz. Das "Gesetz zur Fortentwicklung der Grundsicherung für Arbeitsuchende" soll am Freitag im Bundesrat verabschiedet werden. "Die Forderungen der Ausschüsse des Bundesrates, soziale Leistungen nur noch vorübergehend zu gewähren (Punkt 9) oder den Vorrang lebenslanger Unterhaltsverpflichtungen zwischen Eltern und Kindern auszuweiten (Punkt 10), sind für uns nicht akzeptabel", so Andreas Geiger von der Arbeitsgemeinschaft.

Attac kritisiert Gesundheitsreform als "schamlose Abzocke"

Eckpunkte der Gesundheitsreform: Attac kritisiert Gesundheitsreform als "schamlose Abzocke" (06.07.06)

Attac sieht in "dem angeblichen Kompromiss" zur Gesundheitsreform "nichts als eine schamlose Abzocke der Kranken und Versicherten". "Eine medizinische Versorgung für alle verlangt, dass deren Kosten allen je nach ihrer finanziellen Leistungsfähigkeit getragen werden", meint der Chefarzt an der Hochrheinklinik in Bad Säckingen, Arndt Dohmen, zugleich aktiv in der Attac-AG "Soziale Sicherungssysteme". Eine solche solidarische Bürgerversicherung setze voraus "dass sich niemand mehr aus der Solidarität davonstehlen kann, also die Beitragsbemessungsgrenze fällt". Attac fordert daher die Abschaffung der privaten Krankenversicherung. Weiterhin müssten die Unternehmen die Hälfte der Kosten des Gesundheitssystems tragen, damit ein gesetzlicher Krankenversicherungsschutz für alle Menschen im Land finanzierbar sei.

The Bush administration's destabilization policies

Mother Jones
by Tom Engelhardt

07/05/06

[A]dministration strategists have long been trying to destabilize Iran in a variety of ways, while threatening future military assaults on that country's nuclear establishment. If, at some future point, they were to follow through on this, the results for the global economy would undoubtedly prove both staggering and destabilizing in ways it's quite possible no one could handle. In the meantime, they have been willing to destabilize the world by essentially growing terror in the pursuit of other ends. Despite the centrality of the 'global war on terror' to their plans, it's obvious that the taking out of hostile terrorist groups has not been the only, or even perhaps the primary item on their agenda -- after all, they curtailed the hunt for Osama bin Laden in order to whack Iraq. Rhetoric aside, they seem, in fact, to be quite willing to live with the global phenomenon of ever proliferating, ever more homegrown terrorist organizations...

Why conservatives can't govern

AlterNet
by Alan Wolfe

07/06/06

Contemporary conservatism is a walking contradiction. Unable to shrink government but unwilling to improve it, conservatives attempt to split the difference, expanding government for political gain, but always in ways that validate their disregard for the very thing they are expanding. The end result is not just bigger government, but more incompetent government. 'Ideas,' a distinguished conservative named Richard Weaver once wrote, 'have consequences.' Americans have learned something about the consequences of conservative ideas during the Bush years that they never had to confront in the more amiable Reagan period. As a way of governing, conservatism is another name for disaster...

FARMERS CONTINUE BLOCKADE AGAINST ESB LINE - RADIO MAST OBJECTIONS

I am sending you the below for posting.

Best, Imelda, Cork


IRISH EXAMINER, THURSDAY, 06.07.2006

"FARMERS CONTINUE BLOCKADE AGAINST ESB LINE

by Eoin English

Defiant landowners vowed last night to continue their blockade against an ESB [Electricity Supply Board] power line despite the threat of massive legal bills. The Bantry Concerned Action Group (BCAG) said its members will continue to deny ESB crews access to over 20 farms in the area. The ESB workers, who have a court order allowing them access to land to erect a 14-kilometre power line to a wind farm, have been blocked from farmland since last Thursday. The BCAG was standing firm yesterday despite confirmation from the ESB that it is taking legal action against the landowners to recover the costs of having crews idle in the area since last week. Costs are estimated at up to 15,000 [euros] a day. Landowners were yesterday facing a bill of up to 60,000 [euros]. But BCAG spokesman Joe Burke said his members will not back down. "I don't give two hoots what the ESB say. That's just a threat," he said. "I'm not worried, and the other landowners aren't worried either. Even if it's 100,000 [euros], or 200,000 [euros] a day, my children are more important than that. "I'd never forgive myself that I didn't stand up and protect them. "They can take us to court. All I can do is explain to the judge that this is what the farmers here want." He made his comments as farmers from Waterford, Galway and Tipperary joined the protest. A number of other protesters, linked to the Rossport Five protests in Mayo last year, are also offering support. "


And in today's (Thurs., July 6, 2006) IRISH EXAMINER's "Local News" roundup column the following appears:

"RADIO MAST OBJECTIONS

Groups in Kenmare [Co Kerry] are strongly opposing the erection of a telecommunications mast at the local garda station. Deputy Jackie Healy-Rae said health and safety considerations were no being taken into account and there were schools, shops, hotels and private homes within 1 km of the structure."

Unter dem Stichwort »Globalisierung« werden ideologische Mythen kolportiert, zu sich selbst erfüllenden Prophezeiungen gemacht: das Ausbluten der Staatskassen, die Abschaffung von Arbeitnehmerrechten, das Ende der Sozialsysteme. Es ist heute eine Hauptbeschäftigung der Linken, diese Mythen zu entlarven und zu bekämpfen. Wie gesagt: Sie fallen nicht vom Himmel, sie werden gemacht.

It is important that the strictest requirements be placed on those voters who live in cities who attempt to register to vote. There are a myriad of again, legal but unethical excuses that can be used to reject the attempt by a voter to register to vote, or to purge them from the rolls.

Phone mast inquiry has been withdrawn

A PUBLIC inquiry into a phone mast at Codnor has been scrapped, after T-Mobile withdrew its appeal.

An inquiry was due to take place to see if the phone company should be allowed to keep its monopole mast at land near the market place.

The phone company originally launched its appeal on grounds of non-determination after Amber Valley Borough Council didn't make a decision on the future of the mast within an eight-week timescale.

At a meeting earlier this month, councillors on Amber Valley Borough Council's planning board decided to press ahead with an inquiry despite warnings from senior council officers that the council could lose the case and land the taxpayer with huge costs. Within days of this decision by the council, T-Mobile withdrew its appeal.

However, T-Mobile's withdrawal does not automatically mean that the phone mast will come down. At the council meeting senior legal officers advised councillors that even if T-Mobile lost the appeal, they could still exercise permitted development rights, thus allowing the mast to remain.

Cliff Jones from Jessop Street, Codnor is one of a number of residents who has been fighting to have the mast removed. Cliff said: "I am pleased that T-Mobile has withdrawn their appeal, however, we just hope that this means that the mast has now got to come down. I would like to thank the councillors who made a stand and went against officer's recommendations and called for the public inquiry."

Isn't this a ludicrous situation where, although this Council has stood firm and forced T Mob to withdraw - they could still keep the mast in place. I just wonder who is running this country!
