Bush Faces a Long Legal Battle With California

Writing for US News & World Report, Marianne Lavelle says, "The concept of the White House throwing out all the bad news at 5 p.m. on a Friday, when it is sure to get minimum press coverage, was immortalized in the great 'Take Out the Trash Day' episode in the first season of The West Wing. Well, the Bush administration's decision on California's climate change program wasn't made on a Friday, but it was after business hours the week before Christmas, about eight hours after President Bush signed into law an energy bill that the administration obviously thinks will give it perfect cover for what it has done."

It is not, as might be expected, in a blighted city center, but in the once-booming suburbia of Southern California. The noisy, dusty camp sprang up in July with 20 residents and now numbers 200 people, including several children, growing as this region east of Los Angeles has been hit by the US housing crisis."


Will you have food to eat next year?

from Reason to Freedom
by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster


With the economy tanking and the weight of fear hanging over us, the future looks bleak. Right now many Americans are facing the reality of becoming homeless and hunger and malnutrition will most likely become a reality to Americans who thought that impossible for even the poorest among us. You need to take action now. Americans depend on the food they get from the grocery store more than ever before. The unpalatable fact is that food from the local, corporate grocery store is going up in price so rapidly that people who have not shopped for a while are having sticker shock. The price you pay is only one issue, however. That food, and how it is produced, is also causing many of your health problems...

The US Dollar: The Long Farewell?

By Gwynne Dyer

As the U.S. dollar fell in value, the price of oil (which is usually calculated in dollars) rose to compensate for it, but there was no comparable adjustment for foreign central banks that had huge amounts of U.S. dollars in their reserves. China, which was sitting on about a trillion U.S. dollars, simply lost several hundred billion as the currency's value fell. So various central banks started wondering if they should diversify their reserves, and some acted on it.

Latin America Breaks Free Of The US

By Janette Habel

The US has lost ground in Latin America over the past decade, since the project to develop the Free Trade Area of the Americas flopped and since leftwing governments took power and used it with imagination and vigour. The US continues to try to block such emancipation by promoting more free trade agreements, and increasing military cooperation in the name of the war on terrorism and narcotics and the defence of market democracy.
