Thank you all for caring about America's Wild Horses -- this is an announcement from Madeleine. Since the BLM has made the comment process difficult, Madeleine will hand carry letters to Washington. Goal: 20,000 letters. Info below. Please pass the word -- I know we are all swamped and overwhelmed -- but we cannot let this one go. Love you all.... --J.Sea

Dear Friends, Supporters, and Future Supporters, We have heard you voice your complaints about the roundups. We have listened to you share so many of your personal stories about your own adopted mustangs. We have all sent thousands of letters via fax, email, and USPS to our Government officials. Even to the point of their phone lines being unplugged and emails shut down due to the high volume of wild horse supporters on this issue. We are doing all of these things daily, but there still has been NO change.

It's time for the PONY EXPRESS!!! I will personally hand deliver each and every letter that you write, via the Pony Express (one of our beautiful mustangs), to Washington DC. I am setting a goal of 20,000 individual letters to take with me. Americans, International supporters, animal activists, anyone who would like to tell President Obama, Secretary Salazar, and Bob Abbey that we aren't going to sit by waiting until these roundups are over is encouraged to write. This is a very important issue to hundreds of thousands of people that have pleaded with our government to stop gathering our wild horses.

This way they cannot unplug their phones, make their website impossible to send a comment to, or delete emails. These are GOING to get to Washington. I promise you that! For the millions of people who are unaware of the roundup process, here it is: The Bureau of Land Management, a branch of the Department of the Interior, has scheduled the removal of America's wild horses and are attempting to change the grazing rights to be cattle only on the BLM owned land, which leave our wild horses homeless. 100 years ago there were 2 million horses. Now, because of these roundups, there are only 30,000 left. They contract low-flying helicopters to taunt and scare the mustangs, separating them from their families, and eventually coerced into tiny pens.

The mustangs are then taken off to holding facilities where they no longer have room to roam anymore. They will be moved to a long-term holding facility for up to three years if not adopted out or sold to a buyer that intends on using the wild horse for slaughter. Deadline for letters: September 1, 2010 This gives us ONE month to get 20,000 letters in hand to bring to our Nation's Capital. You can find all of this information, as well as a link to the letter on our website, www.savingamericasmustangs.org . Every letter counts! Please forward this email to all of your contacts so that we can make this Pony Express as huge as HUMANLY possible. (or HUMANELY possible on behalf of our majestic, wild horses)

Very Sincerely, Madeleine Pickens Please Follow Madeleine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/mpickens Become Madeleine Pickens' Friend on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/madeleine.pickens Visit her websites for up to the minute information: www.savingamericasmustangs.org or www.madeleinepickens.com

A License to Kill? More information about the biological effects of non-ionizing radiation from wireless technology is coming out every day. Enough is not being done by cities, counties, states and the Federal Government to protect us from the potentially devastating health and environmental effects. Through the 1996 telecommunications act the telecoms are shielded from liability and oversight. Initially cell phones were released with no pre-market safety testing despite the fact the Government and the Military have known for over 50 years that radio frequency is harmful to all biological systems (inthesenewtimes dot com/2009/05/02/6458/.). Health studies were suppressed and the 4 trillion dollar a year industry was given what amounts to a license to kill.
On it's face, the 1996 telecommunications act is unconstitutional and a cover-up. Within the fine print city governments are not allowed to consider "environmental" effects from cell towers. They should anyway! It is the moral and legal obligation of our government to protect our health and welfare? Or is it? When did this become an obsolete concept? A cell tower is a microwave weapon capable of causing cancer, genetic damage & other biological problems. Bees, bats, humans, plants and trees are all affected by RF & EMF. Communities fight to keep cell towers away from schools yet they allow the school boards to install wi fi in all of our schools thereby irradiating our kids for 6-7 hours each day. Kids go home and the genetic assault continues with DECT portable phones, cell phones, wi fi and Wii's. A tsunami of cancers and early alzheimer's await our kids. Young people under the age of 20 are 420% more at risk of forming brain tumors (Swedish study, Dr. Lennart Hardell) because of their soft skulls, brain size and cell turn over time. Instead of teaching "safer" cell phone use and the dangers of wireless technology our schools mindlessly rush to wireless bending to industry pressure rather than informed decision making. We teach about alcohol, tobacco, drugs and safe sex but not about "safer" cell phone use. We are in a wireless trance, scientists are panicking while young brains, ovaries and sperm burns. more information: http://www.wirelesswatchblog.com

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
