Patriots Who Love the Troops to Death

The New York Times's Frank Rich says, "Gerald Ford spoke the truth when he called Watergate 'our long national nightmare,' but even a nightmare can have its interludes of rib-splitting farce."

39 California Counties' Vote Systems in Question

Hector Becerra and Jordan Rau of The Los Angeles Times report: "County election officials scrambled on Saturday to develop contingency plans for the February presidential primary election after California's secretary of state imposed broad restrictions on electronic voting machines that she said are susceptible to hacking."

Is California GOP Trying to Steal the 2008 Election?

Newsweek writer Jonathan Alter says, "Our way of electing presidents has always been fertile ground for mischief. But there's sensible mischief - toying with existing laws and the Constitution to reflect popular will - and then there's the other kind, which tries to rig admission to the Electoral College for strictly partisan purposes. Mischief-makers in California (Republicans) and North Carolina (Democrats) are at work on changes that would subvert the system for momentary advantage and - in ways the political world is only beginning to understand - dramatically increase the odds that a Republican will be elected president in 2008."

House Approves Record $460B Pentagon Budget

Andrew Taylor, writing for the Associated Press, reports that a record $460 billion Pentagon budget approved by lawmakers late Saturday night "would add money for equipment for the National Guard and Reserve" but "does not include Bush's 2008 funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Democrats say they want to consider that money in separate legislation in September."

Canadians, by the way, are also mobilizing their own We the People (Vive le Canada, the Canadian Action Party, et al.) to oppose their branch of the power-elite represented by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives and the Canada West Foundation, both of which advocate “deep integration” with the U.S. and Mexico. When the SPP meets August 20-21 at Montebello, Quebec­surrounded by heavy security­there may be as many as 10,000 protesters in the area.......

Council blunder leads to new mast

By Nurinder Johal

Angry: Richard Thompson front with Kilsby residents in front of the mobile phone mast (MAST_079007)

RESIDENTS are angry about a phone mast that has been built in their village because of a council blunder.

Villagers in rural Kilsby were against the Orange phone mast being built.

They claim the 15-metre mast situated at the mouth of Kilsby tunnel is an eyesore and want it to be taken down.



And still it goes on, week after week! The guilty LPA planning officers
(who give their so-called professional advice to councillors and so often recommend approval of telecoms applications without due consideration of the pros and cons) demonstrate yet again their incompetence and ignorance of the associated legislation. Any complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman in such circumstances is all very well but the sooner someone takes an LPA to court (vide the the learned statements of three Appeal Court judges in the 'Bardsey' case) the better. We might then see something being done!

CIA, not Pakistan, should be asked about Osama's whereabouts

Owais Ahmed Ghani, governor of Balochistan, said here on Thursday that it is the CIA and not Pakistan that should be asked where Osama Bin Laden is, since it was the CIA that recruited, trained and shepherded the future chief of Al Qaeda during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the ensuing conflict.

Gingrich says war on terror 'phony'

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday the Bush administration is waging a "phony war" on terrorism, warning that the country is losing ground against the kind of Islamic radicals who attacked the country on Sept. 11, 2001.

Iraq Power Grid Said to Be Near Collapse

Power supplies in Baghdad have been sporadic all summer and now are down to just a few hours a day, if that. The water supply in the capital has also been severely curtailed by power blackouts and cuts that have affected pumping and filtration stations.,,-6827777,00.html

Baghdad Misery Index: 117 Degrees, No Water

Jamil Hussein, 52, a retired army officer in northeast Baghdad, said his house has been without water for two weeks, except for two hours at night. He says the water smells and is unclean.

Stock Market Meltdown

It's a Bloodbath. That's the only way to describe it.

By Mike Whitney

On Friday the Dow Jones took a 280 point nosedive on fears that that losses in the subprime market will spill over into the broader economy and cut into GDP. Ever since the two Bear Stearns hedge funds folded a couple weeks ago the stock market has been writhing like a drug-addict in a detox-cell. Yesterday's sell-off added to last week's plunge that wiped out $2.1 trillion in value from global equity markets.

A Week in the Death of Iraq

By Dr. Mohammed

When will I die? That's the question circling in my head when I awake on Wednesday. I'm sweating, as usual. My muscles ache from another long night of no electricity in weather only slightly cooler than hell. As I dress for work, other questions assail me: How will I die? Will it be a shot in the head? Will I be blown to pieces? Or be seized at a police checkpoint because of my sect, then tortured and killed and thrown out on the sidewalk?

Interkultureller Humanismus als Hoffnung für das 21. Jahrhundert - The Prospects of Intercultural Humanism in the 21st Century

Die Wertschätzungen, die der jüdische Physiker Albert Einstein und der christliche Physiker, Philosoph und Friedensforscher Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker dem hinduistischen Politiker Mahatma Gandhi erweisen, deuten auf einen interkulturellen Humanismus hin, der unserer Auffassung nach innerhalb einer weltweiten Vielfalt von Religionen und Weltanschauungen als Orientierung für das 21. Jahrhundert dienen könnte und sollte.

The Prospects of Intercultural Humanism in the 21st Century

The values that the Jewish physicist Albert Einstein and the Christian physicist, philosopher, and peace researcher Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker attribute to the Hindu politician Mahatma Gandhi, point towards an intercultural humanism which we regard as part of a worldwide array of religions and perspectives of the world which could and should survive as an orientation for the 21st century.

Hiroshima: Der Mahnruf des missachteten Gewissens

Heute vor 62 Jahren warfen US-Soldaten erstmals in der Menschheitsgeschichte eine Atombombe. Ihr Ziel war die südjapanische Stadt Hiroshima. Nur drei Tage später fiel die zweite Atombombe auf Nagasaki. Am 6.August 1945 starben in Hiroshima 140.000 Menschen und kurz danach in Nagasaki 73.000.

Du sollst den Kern nicht spalten!

Papst Benedikt XVI. geißelt Atomraketen und setzt sich für den "friedlichen und sicheren Gebrauch der Atomkraft" ein. Der Einsatz der Nuklearenergie soll auch der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung in den armen Ländern dienen.
