We're new at this stuff...was in touch with nigel with an e-mail...trying to get to you with a request for 7 minutes of your time...We tried to follow your lead and get involved in local politics ("tag you're it")...we really tried, but after endless hours of listening to anyone that wanted to talk about anything for as long as they wanted, (complete with powerpoint presentation on a bus stop sign that was in the wrong place), we tried other chapters, we came to the realization that the dems are somewhat ineffective because they are too nice.
Last night I was watching FSTV and saw their summer documentary about Monsanto. Now, Monsanto's activities vis a vie Ogent Orange has been well known to me for a long time. And I have been long opposed to their GM program. What disturbed me is that e-mails published to scientific journals were traced back to Monsanto employees or their public relations firms. These posts are evidence of Monsanto's policy to INTENTIONALLY contaminate the wild environment with Monsanto's GM seed.
All this talk coming from the "intelligent" left about why we need to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is so disappointing, because it demonstrates what seems a complete lack of understanding of the underlying reasons we are there. Our involvement there has less to do with fighting terrorism or setting up a Democratic Afghanistan than it does with understanding global energy strategies against nations competing for Super Power status.
Let's be real here. How many of you have ever been able to sit down with a Presidential candidate and discuss issues with them? Only the smallest fraction of voters even get to press flesh with a candidate for our Presidency. We are expected to make our choices based on hearsay. Does anyone else see this as a problem?
About Two weeks ago (between the 7th and 14th maybe), Tom had a caller describe his community, which had bandeed together to self-insure. He gave their website and was going to send information into the show. I thought he said he was from Ohio, maybe Indiana - I tried searching the old tapes... no luck. I wanted to bring this idea to a few people I know in Madison, WI - Walker asside, there are some people in Wisconsin who still believe in cooperator (as opposed to greed). Can anybody recall this and point me to their website?
The President has authority, under the Antiquities Act of 1906, to proclaim national monuments on lands already under Federal jurisdiction.
Can the President declare the Great Lakes a National Monument to preserve this great natural resource from grabby thieves?
Purge the Filth - Turn Bush, Cheney and their other senior officials over to the Haig for prosecution as War Criminals
Email the Nobel Committee to Revoke Obama's Peace Prize: firstname.lastname@example.org
Forget the fact that he promised he would end the Afghan war as soon as he got into office and that we are now still in it 3 years later and consider the ego it takes to use War games – destroying and ending peoples lives – in a bid to further your own personal career goals as a politician.

The Worst Environmental President Ever
Three years agoPresident Obama made a campaign promise to take on big agribusiness and the meat industry by passing the fair farm rules.
Two years ago the fair farm rules, which were passed as part of the 2008 Farm Bill started to be worked on by the USDA.
One Year ago these rules were proposed by the USDA, but due to pressure from big agribusiness they have not been finalized or implemented.
ARE THE REPUBLICANS GOING AFTER THE FRESH WATER OF THE GREAT LAKES
With the recent power grabs in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan what common thread "FLOWS" through that region...?

The solution is an Independent or Progressive candidate. But they are locked out of the process by a corporate media whose Boards of Directors shudder at the thought of Washington and the public treasury being ruled by a party that won’t play the type of cash-ball that will concentrate wealth using the other corporations whose Boards they sit on.
