Making a Killing From Hunger

From the April issue of GRAIN: "For some time now the rising cost of food all over the world has taken households, governments and the media by storm. The price of wheat has gone up by 130% over the last year. Rice has doubled in price in Asia in the first three months of 2008 alone, and just last week it hit record highs on the Chicago futures market ... In fear of political turmoil, world leaders have been calling for more food aid, as well as for more funds and technology to boost agricultural production. Cereal exporting countries, meanwhile, are closing their borders to protect their domestic markets, while other countries have been forced into panic buying. Is this a price blip? No. A food shortage? Not that either. We are in a structural meltdown, the direct result of three decades of neoliberal globalisation."

Stealth Campaigns

The Center for Public Integrity's Sara Fritz, in a five-part examination of how independent committees shape the presidential race, writes: "Their names roll off the tongue with a patriotic cadence: Freedom’s Watch, Democracy Alliance, Citizens United, Progress for America, Foundation for a Secure and Prosperous America. These are the new giants of American politics, the well-funded groups organized behind a veil of secrecy to influence the voters’ choice for president of the United States in 2008."

Arbeitslosenstatistik nicht aussagefähig: Immer mehr Ältere sind offenbar auf "Hartz IV" angewiesen

Das Armutsrisiko für ältere Menschen in Deutschland hat nach einer Studie des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes (DGB) deutlich zugenommen. Seit der Einführung des Arbeitslosengeldes II ("Hartz IV") im Januar 2005 sei die Zahl der älteren Hilfebedürftigen bis Ende vergangenen Jahres um mehr als 22 Prozent und damit fast doppelt so stark gestiegen wie bei den anderen Altersgruppen, berichtet der "Tagesspiegel" unter Berufung auf die DGB-Erhebung. "Das ist ein bedrückendes Ergebnis, vor allem vor dem Hintergrund des demografischen Wandels", sagte der Leiter der Abteilung Arbeitsmarktpolitik im DGB-Bundesvorstand, Wilhelm Adamy.

Sie wissen nicht, was sie tun ...

Am Montag will sich der CDU-Vorstand mit dem Thema Rente beschäftigen. Dazu erklärt der stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Klaus Ernst:

Der gegenwärtige Streit innerhalb der CDU zeigt vor allem eines: In der Rentenpolitik wissen Union und SPD längst nicht mehr, was sie tun. Es ist unerträglich mit welcher Ignoranz CDU-Fraktionschef Volker Kauder das Problem der Altersarmut leugnet und auf diesem Weg versucht, die Vorschläge seines Unions-Kollegen Rüttgers vom Tisch zu wischen. Dabei gebietet es schon der klare Menschenverstand, dass Arbeitsnehmerinnen und Arbeitnehmer mit Beschäftigungszeiten von 35 Jahren und mehr, nicht auf Grundsicherungsniveau abrutschen dürfen. DIE LINKE will, dass die Rente wieder den Lebensstandard ohne gravierende Abstriche sichert. Um vermehrter Altersarmut vorzubeugen, muss das stete Absinken der gesetzlichen Nettorenten, das mit der rot-grünen Rentenreform eingeleitet wurde, rückgängig gemacht werden. Hier liegt der Hauptgrund, warum trotz jahrelanger Beitragsleistung immer mehr Menschen im Alter auf Grundsicherung angewiesen sind. DIE LINKE fordert die Rücknahme aller Kürzungsfaktoren, die dazu führen, dass das Rentenniveau in den nächsten Jahren dramatisch sinkt. Wir wollen in die Richtung einer Erwerbstätigenversicherung gehen, in der alle Erwerbseinkommen berücksichtigt werden. Das bedeutet, dass alle, die Erwerbseinkommen beziehen, in einer Versicherung sind. Das betrifft dann die Abgeordneten des Deutschen Bundestages ebenso wie auch alle anderen Erwerbstätigen wie Beamte oder auch Selbständige.

Rentenpolitik ist Armutszeugnis

Als ein Armutszeugnis für die Rentenpolitik von Rot-Grün und der Großen Koalition bezeichnete Klaus Ernst, stellvertretender Vorsitzender der Partei DIE LINKE. die vorläufigen Zahlen des statistischen Bundesamtes zum Anstieg der Altersarmut:

Die Zunahme der Kosten für die Grundsicherung im Alter um 12,7 Prozent im letzten Jahr stellt eine krasse Zunahme von Altersarmut dar. Die Rentenkürzungspolitik von Rot-Grün bis zur Großen Koalition zeigt damit ihr wahres Gesicht: Senioren und Seniorinnen, die von ihrer Rente nicht leben können und im Alter den Weg zum Sozialamt antreten müssen. Wenn die in den letzten Jahren politisch verursachte, millionenfache Altersarmut noch aufgehalten werden soll, muss die gesetzliche Rente gestärkt und solidarisch umgebaut werden: die Dämpfungsfaktoren müssen abgeschafft werden, damit die Renten wieder mit der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung Schritt halten können. Beiträge für Zeiten der Kindererziehung und niedrigen Einkommens müssen höher bewertet werden – Solidarität statt privater Vorsorge muss das Motto der Rentenpolitik sein.

Big Food includes companies like Monsanto Chemical, a monster straight out of science fiction alien horror.

It is presently conducting a reign of terror against the world’s farmers, many of whom are committing suicide. The Monsanto monster will not stop until it kills us.......

EPA Official Ousted While Fighting Dow

Michael Hawthorne, of The Chicago Tribune: "The battle over dioxin contamination in this economically stressed region had been raging for years when a top Bush administration official turned up the pressure on Dow Chemical to clean it up. On Thursday, following months of internal bickering over Mary Gade's interactions with Dow, the administration forced her to quit as head of the US Environmental Protection Agency's Midwest office, based in Chicago. Gade told the Tribune she resigned after two aides to national EPA administrator Stephen Johnson took away her powers as regional administrator and told her to quit or be fired by June 1."

Marsden, the village that mast towers are now taking over

May 2 2008 by Our Correspondent, Huddersfield Daily Examiner

I WONDER if Marsden is rapidly becoming the Communications Mast Capital of Yorkshire?

This semi-rural village sits in a natural amphitheatre in what was once a ‘box canyon’ until the arrival of the canal and railway in the early to middle years of the 19th century. It was previously cut off from Lancashire (let alone the world) except for a tortuous and dangerous packhorse trail to Rochdale.

This is a morally bankrupt position that diminishes America’s stature in the world, and puts U.S. citizens and soldiers at risk. Moreover, it is not necessary.

The myth of Green McCain

The American Prospect

If the hype is to be believed, Sen. John McCain is practically the second coming of Sierra Club founder John Muir. ‘I will clean up the planet,’ McCain told a New Hampshire crowd in January, a promise he has made at dozens of campaign stops since then. ‘I will make global warming a priority.’ But while McCain maintains that global warming will be one of his top three issues as president, he has not articulated a plan of action, nor has he updated his policy positions to reflect changing scientific understanding. Despite all the kudos he gets for acknowledging the threat of climate change, both his record and policy reveal a candidate who is confused about what he’s supposed to advocate, and lacks true conviction about environmental protection...

How Under-the-Gun Iran Plays it Cool

By Pepe Escobar

This year, Iran finally becomes a natural gas-exporting country. The framework for the $7.6 billion Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline, also known as the "peace" pipeline, is a go. Both these key South Asian US allies are ignoring Bush administration desires and rapidly bolstering their economic, political, cultural, and - crucially - geostrategic connections with Iran. An attack on Iran would now inevitably be viewed as an attack against Asia.
