Ethics Cloud Over California Republicans

Hollywood party girls don't have a monopoly on trouble in California. A disproportionate number of the state's congressional Republicans are facing ethics questions that threaten to sink their careers and their party's political fortunes too.

Powell: Close Guantanamo Now, Restore Habeas

This morning on NBC's Meet the Press, General Colin Powell strongly condemned the US prison at Guantanamo Bay, calling it "a major problem for America's perception" and charging, "if it was up to me, I would close Guantanamo - not tomorrow, this afternoon."

Let Torture Into Court

"Should federal courts hear claims alleging torture by US officials? They should indeed. Denying a federal forum for torture claims does not merely undermine the United States' commitment to a universally condemned practice. It also weakens the institutional role of the courts as a check on executive power and tarnishes their reputation as guarantors of individual rights," says Jonathan Hafetz.

Wir sind Bantam! Melden Sie Ihren Bantam Standort

Alle reden von der Agro-Gentechnik. Wir sagen: BANTAM und bauen samenfesten Zuckermais an. Weil er köstlich schmeckt, am allerbesten frisch aus dem eigenen Garten. Aber auch, um ein praktisches und lebendiges Zeichen gegen den Anbau von gentechnisch verändertem Mais zu setzen.

Die Umwelt- und Gesundheitsrisiken der Agro-Gentechnik sind uns zu hoch. Die Ziele der gentechnischen Manipulation (Insektengiftigkeit, Pestizidresistenz) lehnen wir ab. Die Bedrohung der Artenvielfalt und die weltweite Monopolisierung des Saatguts in den Händen weniger Agrar-Multis halten wir für gefährlich. Wo Gentechnik wächst, gerät die gentechnikfreie Landwirtschaft unter Druck und letztlich unter die Räder. Deshalb sagen wir BANTAM, bevor es zu spät ist.

Wo Bantam steht wächst keine Gentechnik. Deshalb wollen wir den Anbau von samenfesten Maissorten in ganz Deutschland fördern und zu einer Tradition machen, an der auch das neue Gentechnikgesetz und seine Verordnungen sich orientieren müssen.

Wer gentechnikfreien Maissorten wie den "Golden Bantam" anbaut

* muss über den Anbau von Gentechnikmais in seiner Nachbarschaft genau informiert werden

* muss vor gentechnisch verändertem Pollen geschützt werden, besonders dann, wenn aus der Ernte neues Saatgut gewonnen und vermehrt werden soll

Machen auch Sie Ihren Garten zur gentechnikfreien Zone, die wir gemeinsam verteidigen. Machen Sie mit bei unserem "Zwergenaufstand", mit dem wir die "Gentechnik-Riesen" das Fürchten lehren. Genießen Sie im Herbst den maissig-süßen Geschmack von "Golden Bantam". Vermehren und empfehlen Sie ihn weiter.

In jedem Korn steckt ein Kolben – packen wir's an!

Hartz IV: Der Bundessozialrichter zu Unterkunftskosten

Was Hartz IV-Empfänger für ihre Wohnung ausgeben dürfen, muss den aktuellen Mieten an ihrem Wohnort entsprechen, betont Peter Udsching, Vorsitzender Richter am 7. Senat des Bundessozialgerichts, gegenüber der ZEIT. Gegenwärtig übernehmen viele Kommunen nur einen Teil der Mietkosten und fordern die Menschen auf, sich eine billigere Bleibe zu suchen. "Die Leute haben einen Anspruch darauf, in ihrer Gemeinde mit den Kosten für angemessenes Wohnen versorgt zu werden", so Udsching. "Alle Gemeinden sind jetzt gezwungen zu erheben, welchen Wohnraum es bei ihnen zu welchem Preis gibt."

Oil Price Gouging: From Enron With Love

by David Usher

Remember what Enron did to California and millions of investors? It took advantage of deregulation in California, manipulating electricity prices by raiding the futures market, overscheduling power lines, and creating fears about shortages. PG&E went bankrupt because it could not raise rates to customers. The whole thing unraveled, and Enron went down in flames in the biggest bankruptcy in American history......
