Conservatives Ready to Battle McCain on Convention Platform

According to Michael D. Shear, of the Washington Post: "Conservative activists are preparing to do battle with allies of Sen. John McCain in advance of September's Republican National Convention, hoping to prevent his views on global warming, immigration, stem cell research and campaign finance from becoming enshrined in the party's official declaration of principles."

Free Trade, Why "Free" Matters

For Truthout, Dean Baker writes: "Senator McCain was in Colombia last week touting his support for the trade agreement that the Bush administration had negotiated with the country. He also touted his support for NAFTA, contrasting both positions with Senator Obama's opposition to the two pacts. McCain had an important ally in his campaign. The media decided to embellish McCain's case by touting his support for 'free trade,' as opposed to the specific deals in question. This is a very important difference and it reflects deeply held biases in the media."


Free Trade's False Promises

Kevin Gallagher writes for The Guardian UK, "John McCain has just returned from his so-called 'free trade tour' in Mexico and Colombia where he highlighted the success of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and showed his support for the stalled and controversial US-Colombia Free Trade Agreement. It is unusual for a presidential candidate to travel abroad during a campaign and even more unusual to cite NAFTA as a success story in Mexico."

Besichtigung der Wohnung (Hausbesuche bei ALG II) muss nicht geduldet werden

Wir haben hier immer die Auffassung vertreten, dass die so genannten "Hausbesuche" durch Arbeitsagentur oder die KdU-Stelle des Landkreises rechtlich höchst problematisch sind. Das Landessozialgericht NRW hat in einer Entscheidung (L 7 B 284/07 AS ER) unsere Sicht bestätigt und darauf hingewiesen, dass ein ALG II Hilfeempfänger die Besichtigung seiner Wohnung nicht dulden muss, "denn das Gewähren des Wohnungszutritts bzw. das Dulden eines Hausbesuchs wird von § 60 Abs. 1 SGB I nicht erfasst".

Steinbrück hetzt gegen sozial Schwache

Bundesfinazminister Peer Steinbrück (SPD): Ein Hartz IV Verfechter und rechter SPD Politiker. Steinbrück lies sich zu skandalösen Äußerungen hinreißen, die sozial schwache Menschen diskreditierten.

Fast unbemerkt von der breiteren Öffentlichkeit lässt sich der deutsche Bundesfinanzminister Peer Steinbrück (SPD) zu skandalösen Äußerungen hinreißen. Bei einem rechten Stammtisch-Politiker mag man aufgrund der fehlenden Bildung noch nachvollziehen, woher solche dumpfen Parolen wohl kommen mögen, aber bei einem Politiker, der ein äußerst wichtiges Amt im Staate inne hat und zudem ein "Vertreter des Volkes" sein soll, lässt so etwas kaum Spielraum zur Phantasie. Steinbrück ist im Übrigen ein Hartz IV Verfechter erster Stunde.

Opposition to invasion of Iraq based on emotion or facts?

by Devvy Kidd

Our soldiers are coming home and dying from DU exposure. Their children from both Gulf Wars are being born with horrible birth defects and yeah, I do get a little emotional about this. A phony "war of liberation" and nation building that is a gross misuse of our military, but fits in perfectly with the plans of the mad power mongers who own Washington, DC. There will NEVER be any "success" or "mission accomplished" in Iraq. Every single nation building invasion the U.S. has ever participated in has turned into a nightmare........

Today is Independence Day. In between the parades, fireworks, BBQs, baseball games and other patriotic festivities, you may have occasion to actually read the Declaration of Independence. After all, that document is what this holiday is supposed to be about. You might even have time to read some editorials and news articles, watch some TV program or hear politicians pontificate about the significance of that document...

Planning the world to death

Classically Liberal
by CLS


Just a little bit of Economics 101 is enough to predict that government policies like biofuels subsidies would push food prices higher globally. The problem is that the Times and the politicians both seemed to believe that if the bureaucrats had ‘good intentions’ they could ‘rationally plan’ the market in ways that abolish basic laws of supply and demand. In any other field they would be laughed out of office for doing that. Imagine them thinking that rational, central planning could reduce the effects of gravity. But economics, more than the hard sciences, has the ability to attract charlatans who believe in the economic equivalent of alchemy...

The Democrats’ foreign-policy game

Christian Science Monitor
by Stuart Gottlieb


The Democratic Party and its presumed presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama, have made ‘restoring America’s image’ and ‘renewing American leadership’ cornerstones of their foreign-policy promises for 2008. Nearly every Democratic foreign-policy speech, press release, or Web link says as much. This is a powerful message that certainly resonates with American voters and our friends around the world. However, if we look just below the surface of the rhetoric and analyze specific policies proposed by Democrats in Congress and on the campaign trail, we find plans that would only further damage America’s international standing. On two critical issues in particular — trade and the war in Iraq — Democrats have been trying to have their cake and eat it too: They claim they’ll restore America’s image and leadership and simultaneously promise unilateralist and irresponsible policies certain to have the opposite effect...
