Impeachment Time: Grab the Torches and Pitchforks!
Self-styled "progressives" in Congress should stop being afraid to demand Bush's head. The Fitzgerald indictment is now about one man lying; it's about a cover-up of the president's and vice president's mad scheme to trick the country into a war in Iraq, and that calls for impeachment. A bill of impeachment should be introduced right away.

Organic Food Labeling Compromised
Please, where-ever you buy your "organic" food, ask a manager or fill out a comment card on how they plan to deal with the new rules about labeling. This was an inside
job, it seems, and bigtime food corps are trying to hijack the organic marketplace. They've been at it for a while, but this is a big victory for them and a loss for those
looking to feed themselves well.

PORTLAND, Oct. 28—(al-Masakin) Millions of people across the world will take to the streets today, Jerusalem International Day—the last Friday in the month of Ramadan—in preparation for the one final onslaught against the Zionist entity for the liberation of Palestine and the holy city of Quds (Jerusalem). An onslaught, a war, a Holy war, and a jihad, a jihad that is coming as surely as night turns into day until the End of Days. An event as certain as the Holy Koran is the word of God.

The Wal-Mart Future Awaits You
Leaked memo reveals extent of plan to shift public perception of its health coverage, further burden its workers and influence the future of national healthcare policy. Among the initiatives recommended by the memo are plans to switch employees' paid-time off for more generous discount cards, to switch from a tenured and full-time workforce to a part-time, high turnover workforce, to build in-store, privately run healthcare clinics intended to deter employees from visiting the hospital, to require physical activity from all positions making it impossible for older workers to find jobs, and to "become more engaged in the national healthcare debate, to position Wal-Mart as a leader in healthcare in general," in order to deflect criticism and influence national healthcare policy.

Are you class conscious?
Economic class is one of the few subjects in American society that is forever taboo; the idea is in fact so forbidden that one never learns the basis for its censorship. Why is class such a dangerous idea? And why do most Americans have only a limited understanding of what is an established phenomena in every nation in the world? In spite of the intentional suppression of the class discussion, the issue found itself thrust upon the world public with the destructive outcome of hurricane Katrina. For the first time, many people witnessed a condition of poverty and suffering unbeknownst to them; the shock these visions created prompted people to ask questions about their reality that had never been raised, resulting in conclusions that heightened their awareness about issues that existed beforehand behind a veil of hidden forces. These new ideas consisted in recognizing relationships between race and poverty, class and survival, the protection of property over the life of the deprived—the grossest aspects of how we live, normally hidden from public view.

Torres, Sr., and others from groups, like "Veterans for Peace," gathered at a Vigil to protest the conflict. The toll of U.S. military dead had just reached the grim 2,000 mark.

Proposed $500 cap on non-cash donations would end important new industry.
The donation services industry has emerged as the most promising and positive new industry in decades - holding unique potential for creating prosperity and restoring hope among those at the lower end of our economy.

This vital, emerging industry will end if Congress chooses to adopt the recommendation of the Joint Commission on Taxation Reform to cap deductions for homeowner non-cash donations at $500.

In October, Senators Gordon Smith and Ron Wyden were requested to sponsor legislation requiring detailed documentation above $500, thereby preserving and fostering the most important new industry in decades that specifically benefits those at the lower end of our economy. In terms of both economic force, and positive social impact, preserving the donation services industry is crucial.
