Low-Income Renters to Pay for Housing Bailout

Dean Baker writes for Truthout: "Just to remind everyone of where things stand, Congress was wrestling with the situation of several million low- and moderate-income families, who are facing foreclosures on their homes. [And now] Congress wants to take away money from low-income renters to help bankers that made bad loans in the housing bubble."

India Strengthens Regulations Against Cell Phone Towers

Re: India Strengthens Regulations Against Cell Phone Towers

"The base station antennas should be at least *3 metres away from the nearby building*…. Access to (such) sites should be prohibited," states the guideline, which also calls for warning signs to be put up near the towers.

Wow 3 meters! That will for sure protect people! I'd recommend at least
300000 meters as safe distance.

VA Struggles to Gear Up to Care for Female Veterans

Les Blumenthal, of McClatchy Newspapers: "Two nightmares haunt Robin Milonas. While serving in Afghanistan in 2004 as an Army Reserve civil affairs officer, the former lieutenant colonel got lost in a minefield while leading a small convoy delivering school supplies to civilians. Even more troubling is the memory of a man who arrived at the main gate of Bagram Air Base carrying a young boy whose leg had been blown off by a land mine. 'I was an outgoing, energetic, determined good soldier who wanted to make the Army a career,' said Milonas, of Puyallup, Wash., who just turned 50. 'Now I am broken.'"

Über 50 Prozent aller Eintritte von ALG II Empfängern in Beschäftigung sind Ein-Euro Jobs

Fast 50 Prozent sind Ein-Euro-Jobs

Der Rechnungshof legt akuten Reformbedarf offen. Über 50 Prozent aller Eintritte von ALG II Empfängern in Beschäftigung sind Ein-Euro Jobs, im Jahre 2007 gab es fast 800 000 Eintritte

Den aktuellen Bericht des Bundesrechnungshofs über die sog. Ein-Euro-Jobs wertet der DGB als Aufforderung an die Koalition, den massenhaften Einsatz von Ein-Euro-Jobs endlich zu stoppen. Die DGB-Vorstandsmitglied Annelie Buntenbach bezeichnete das Ergebnis der Bundesrechnungshof-Prüfung als "schallende Ohrfeige für die Politik". Sie kritisierte, dass die Bundesregierung nicht tätig geworden sei, obwohl der Rechnungshof die Praxis bei den Ein-Euro-Jobs schon im letzten Jahr bemängelt hatte.

Auf 100 Langzeitarbeitslose kommen 12 Ein-Euro-Jobber

Rund zehn Prozent der Langzeitarbeitslosen sind 2007 einem Ein-Euro-Job nachgegangen. Wie die Bundestagspressestelle am 19. Mai mitteilte, haben im vergangenen Jahr durchschnittlich 300.000 Empfänger des Arbeitslosengeldes II in einem Ein-Euro-Job gearbeitet. Bei im Jahresdurchschnitt 2,52 Millionen "Hartz IV"-Beziehern seien damit im Jahr 2007 auf 100 Personen rund zwölf Ein-Euro-Jobber gekommen, geht aus der Antwort der Bundesregierung auf eine parlamentarische Anfrage der Links-Fraktion hervor.

Blacklisted by the Bush government

by Tim Shorrock


Ever since a New York Times report uncovered warrantless domestic spying by the Bush administration, the issue of NSA surveillance and the 1978 law governing it has been intensely scrutinized and debated. Until now, however, little attention has been paid to dubious activities directly connected with the domestic spying. The Bush administration has used expanded national security powers to undermine the legal rights of people in the United States who are identified as al-Qaida supporters, but who are not charged with terrorist-related crimes. The U.S. Treasury Department and other agencies investigating domestic organizations and U.S. persons rely on the NSA to spy and collect evidence for them — a fundamental shift from the past, when the NSA’s vast eavesdropping powers were used only for foreign intelligence gathering. And in the name of protecting national security, the Bush administration has regularly withheld what it claims is key evidence against those accused — insisting, essentially, that the public accept without question its private conclusions about the suspects’ guilt...

Gitmo trials: Betrayals, backsliding and boycotts

by Andy Worthington


Anyone who has kept half an eye on the proceedings at the Military Commissions in Guantanamo — the unique system of trials for ‘terror suspects’ that was conceived in the wake of the 9/11 attacks by Vice President Dick Cheney and his close advisers — will be aware that their progress has been faltering at best. After six and a half years, in which they have been ruled illegal by the Supreme Court, derailed by their own military judges, relentlessly savaged by their own military defense lawyers, and condemned as politically motivated by their own former chief prosecutor, they have only secured one contentious result: a plea bargain negotiated by the Australian David Hicks, who admitted to providing ‘material support for terrorism,’ and dropped his well-chronicled claims of torture and abuse by US forces, in order to secure his return to Australia to serve out the remainder of a meager nine-month sentence last March...

Bush, McCain dream on in war land

Asia Times
by Jim Lobe


US President George W Bush and the man who hopes to replace him, Senator John McCain, have divulged to the world their beautiful dreams, in which Middle East weapons have become ploughshares, bitter enemies lie down together as lambs and evil powers abandon nuclear weapons. This stuff keeps the neo-cons happy, even though the politics that will make it reality are absent...

Finance chief quits McCain campaign over lobbyist ties

United Press International


Tom Loeffler, a Texas congressman turned lobbyist, resigned as finance co-chairman of John McCain’s presidential campaign Sunday.

You have perhaps a year, maybe two, before the riots start

With Contempt: An Open letter to Dianne Feinstein

By Michael Piotrowski

Mark my words: you have perhaps a year, maybe two, before the riots start. High gas prices, high food prices, incompetent disaster relief, home foreclosures, lack of jobs, and a loss of faith in the system will combine to create chaos.

Democracy in America

By Bill Moyers

We have fallen under the spell of money, faction, and fear, and the great American experience in creating a different future together has been subjugated to individual cunning in the pursuit of wealth and power -and to the claims of empire, with its ravenous demands and stuporous distractions. A sense of political impotence pervades the country - a mass resignation defined by Goodwyn as "believing the dogma of 'democracy' on a superficial public level but not believing it privately."
