Buddy, Can You Spare a Billion?

Dana Milbank, reporting for The Washington Post, writes: "Meet Alan Schwartz, welfare recipient. As the chief executive of Bear Stearns, he's getting rather more public assistance than your typical welfare mom - specifically, $30 billion in federal loan guarantees to help J.P. Morgan Chase take over his firm."

Economy Loses 83,000 Jobs

Dean Baker, writing for Truthout, analyzes the latest economic reports: "The establishment survey showed the economy losing 80,000 jobs in March, the third consecutive month of job loss. The private sector lost 98,000 jobs, the fourth consecutive decline in private sector employment. Overall, the private sector has lost 296,000 jobs over the last three months, a decline of 97,000 per month. Not surprisingly, the weakness in the labor market is also affecting wage growth."

Greenpeace und die Evangelische Kirche Bayerns wollen Genmais verhindern

Die Umweltschutzorganisation Greenpeace will das neue Gentechnikgesetz kreativ nutzen. Aktivisten der Organisation verteilten am 3. April im bayerischen Landkreis Kitzingen in den Orten Fröhstockheim, Rödelsee und Wiesenbronn ökologisches Saatgut der Maissorte Bantam. Ziel der Aktion: "Hobbygärtner und Landwirte" sollen den Öko-Mais in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft zu den zwölf Feldern aussähen, auf denen in diesem Jahr Gen-Mais angebaut werden soll. Das könnte für die Anbauer des Genmaises ein rechtliches Problem darstellen: Das neue Gentechnikgesetz schreibt nämlich Sicherheitsabstände für Gen-Maisfelder vor. 150 Meter müssen zu konventionellem und 300 Meter zu Öko-Mais eingehalten werden, um - jedenfalls per Theorie - Kontaminationen durch den Genmais zu verhindern. Der Genmais-Anbau ist rechtswidrig, wenn er dem Biomais zu dicht auf die Pelle rückt.

Grüne fürchten neue Aufrüstungsspirale: "Die US-Raketenabwehr ist Bestandteil einer offensiven Interventionsstrategie"

In den vergangenen zehn Jahren sind die Grünen vor allem durch die Befürwortung von Kriegseinsätzen in aller Welt aufgefallen. Jetzt wenden sie sich mit ungewöhnlich scharfen Worten gegen die geplante US-Raketenabwehr in Osteuropa. Diese sei "kontraproduktiv und unverantwortbar", kritisierte der grüne Bundestagsabgeordnete Alexander Bonde anlässlich der Erklärung von Bundesverteidigungsminister Franz Josef Jung (CDU), Deutschland und Europa seien auf das amerikanische Raketenabwehrsystem angewiesen und müssten dieses durch ein NATO-Raketenabwehrsystem ergänzen. Jung lasse jetzt in Bukarest die Katze aus dem Sack, so Bonde. Die Bundesregierung werde die US-Raketenabwehrpläne unterstützen und außerdem durch ein NATO-Raketenabwehrsystem ergänzen. Nach Auffassung von Bonde ist das Rüstungsprojekt grundverkehrt: "Das Raketenabwehrsystem ist Bestandteil einer globalen und offensiven Interventionsstrategie der USA."

Residents' phone mast fear

ANGRY Upminster folk fear that a new phone antenna planned for their street could make their children sick from radiation poisoning.

The 12.5metre O2 mast, planned for Corbets Tey Road, in Upminster, has been met with staunch opposition from local residents and shopkeepers who claim the antenna is a lethal eyesore.

Now they've decided to fight back, launching a No To O2 campaign and petition.

Council takes up mast battle

A source of concern ... The phone mast

By Alison Hayes

TOWN councillors have agreed to write to a Newmarket school urging it to start a petition against a mobile phone mast which has been put up close by.

The council is trying to get the mast, which was put up in Exning Road close to the town's new leisure centre and Newmarket College about two months ago, taken down.

81 Percent in US Poll Say Nation Is on the Wrong Track

David Leonhardt and Marjorie Connelly report for The International Herald Tribune, "Americans are more dissatisfied with the country's direction than at any time since the New York Times/CBS News poll began asking about the subject in the early 1990s, according to the latest poll. In the poll, 81 percent of respondents said they believed 'things have pretty seriously gotten off on the wrong track,' up from 69 percent a year ago and 35 percent in early 2002."

Risky misreading of Democrat turmoil

Hawaii Reporter
by Christopher G. Adamo

04/03/08

Rush Limbaugh is enjoying the ensuing success of his ‘Operation Chaos,’ his ongoing effort to weaken the political prospects of the Democrats by prolonging party infighting between the Hillary and Obama camps. But despite Limbaugh’s exuberance, the Democrat Party is alive and well, and could under the right circumstances, resuscitate itself very quickly. Sadly, many of the conditions necessary for such a scenario result from the collaboration of inexcusably gullible Republican ‘moderates.’ Willfully ignorant of past experience, they are again buying into the inane notion that partial concession to fundamentally flawed liberal principle is a worthwhile tactic by which to improve the political climate...

States sue EPA over global warming

Utica Observer-Dispatch

04/02/08

Officials of 18 states are taking the EPA back to court to try to force it to comply with a Supreme Court ruling that rebuked the Bush administration for inaction on global warming. In a petition filed Wednesday, the plaintiffs said the 5-4 ruling in April 2007 required the Environmental Protection Agency to decide whether to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, from motor vehicles...

2008 PigBook released: Republicans top porkers

Citizens Against Government Waste

04/02/08

Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today released the 2008 Congressional Pig Book, the latest installment in an 18-year exposé of pork-barrel spending….. In fiscal year 2008, Congress stuffed 11,610 projects (the second highest total ever) worth $17.2 billion into the 12 appropriations bills. That is a 337 percent increase over the 2,658 projects in fiscal year 2007, and a 30 percent increase over the $13.2 billion total in fiscal year 2007. …. For the first time, the names of members of Congress were added to the projects. The top three porkers were members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, beginning with Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) with $892 million; Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) with $469 million; and Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) with $465 million...

Dan Froomkin, The Washington Post, says: "The publication of a new book by Eric Lichtblau, one of the two New York Times reporters who in late 2005 broke the story of the Bush administration's warrantless surveillance program, is calling attention to how the White House successfully persuaded The Times to suppress its expose in the fall of 2004 - when it might have had a profound effect on President Bush's reelection hopes."

When the Clintons Mine Big Bucks

Steve Weissman writes for Truthout.org about the relationship of Canadian mining mogul Frank Giustra with the Clintons: "Giustra and his agenda should rank among the major issues in the Democratic primary. They do not, mostly because the Obama campaign has so far failed to question the newfound Clinton riches, both in the family coffers and the William J. Clinton Foundation. I suspect the Illinois senator will raise the issue in the run-up to the Pennsylvania primary on April 22."
