Subject: News On Global Warming

by Michael Winship

When I heard about last week's ostensibly successful test of the missile defense shield, I thought back 45 years to the Cuban missile crisis of October 1962, when we feared ourselves defenseless from Russian nuclear rockets just a hundred miles offshore.

John went off on another poorly
Thought out rant
He looks less like McCain and
More like McCant.


The World Energy Watch presents recent news and analysis highlighting the activities of the players involved in the power struggle for the world's remaining energy resources.

Chicago, IL -- David Warwak looks like Eric Schlosser the author of Fast Food Nation. He sounds like Eric Schlosser. Unfortunately, instead of a best seller, Warwak's efforts to wake young people up to the politics of eating have earned him a pink slip at the Chicago area middle school where he has taught art for almost 8 years.

On September 27 here in Philadelphia, the Liberty Medal for 2007 was awarded to Bono and his organization DATA (Debt AIDS Trade Africa), for their work in fighting AIDS and poverty in Africa. Each year, the National Constitution Center awards the Liberty Medal to a person or persons for outstanding work in advancing the cause of liberty around the world.

OK, as a life-long "hippie at heart" who has long advocated that peace and love are much better as a life philosophy than war and hate, even I comprehend that there comes a time when I can no longer continue being diplomatic. Eventually, one has to come to the realization that when you are dealing with an elephant's ass, you have to admit and resort to treating the elephant's ass exactly the same way it is treating you.

When they want the media
To paint a better picture
They keep toting guns but
Start quoting scripture.


The Repuglican Party is attempting to pull off the biggest “bait and switch” ever conducted in these United States! Thanks to the Repuglican Party and the radical right, the basic foundations of America that the forefathers so carefully put in place to make this the greatest nation in the world are being turned upside down and inside out! Secularism, liberalism, equality, civil rights, civil liberties, tolerance, benevolence, impartiality, fairness, a government of the people, by the people, and for the people have always been AMERICAN VALUES! The Repuglicans would have you believe America was built exclusively on “Christian” values, it was not! In this the land of the “melting pot,” the land of “give me your tired, your weak, your huddled masses,” Christianity has never ever been the prerequisite! LIBERAL AMERICAN VALUES, to include all religions and/or no religions, are the building blocks that have always been the finest example of true freedom and democracy!
