The uranium in uranium weapons that dying Navajo vets believed to have poisoned them might well have been mined in their own poisoned homeland, as the U.S. built its post World War II nuclear power, weapons, and war machine.

Interview with Josh Stearns, program manager with Free Press, conducted by Scott Harris
A race car sponsored by the Indiana National Guard was the first to crash today, 05/23/2009, in the Indianapolis 500, not long after the opening ceremony to honor America's veterans, including a speech by General Craig McKinley, a three-volley salute, and the national anthem sung by a member of Indiana's Guard. The Indiana Guard sponsored two Indy500 race cars, to promote itself, and encourage recruitment, this year. The 1313th Engineer company just deployed to Iraq, after a send-off party at East High School in Columbus, Indiana.
The SPNYC calls for free distribution of all preventative materials, the opening of free testing centers at all NYC public hospitals, a moratorium on billing for all swine flu related medical care, and the free distribution of Tamiflu and other swine flue treatments.

To inform people about another way the government is misleading the public to futher the gains of a corrupt government and bankers.
Barack Obama hasn't been to the mountaintop, not in Appalachia. Or, if he has, he wasn't moved, and he doesn't care; his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved 42 out of 48 permits to blow up Appalachian mountains---mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining permits.
More than a few environmentalists went into Obama Shock at the news. "United States of Appalachia" author Jeff Biggers responded with "Waterboarding for Appalachia," describing MTR as "the process of blowing up our nation's oldest and most diverse mountains, razing historic communities, poisoning watersheds, and causing massive erosion and flooding."
Of course, the market-invested pension funds and 401k's were simply pacifying neoliberal illusions sold to American workers for decades.
On Saturday, May 23, 2009, the racist and anti-immigrant organization Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR) is holding its membership meeting at the Best Western: Mill Creek Inn in Salem, Oregon. OFIR is a statewide group with organizational and political ties to the national white supremacist movement.
The alarm bells should be ringing day and night about what's being prepared at General Motors — the ripple effects could produce tidal waves.
The Obama administration has made no secret about its plans for GM: the Chrysler bankruptcy was the "test case," and now Obama's Wall Street buddies inside the Auto Task Force plan to replicate it. The vast implications of the Chrysler bankruptcy went unnoticed by the mainstream media, concerned as it was with the convenient hype provided by Swine Flu.
The real swine, however, are those preparing the greatest single attack on American workers since the Great Depression, the precedent of which will reverberate loudly through business-labor relations in the country — that is, if workers at GM and its parts suppliers don't put a stop to it.

Since President Barack Obama took office in January, the U.S. economy has gone from bad to worst. Nationwide, home foreclosures continue to climb, consumer spending is down due to the credit crisis, more than 6 million Americans remain unemployed, and while paychecks are shrinking, inflation and gas prices are on the increase. The U.S. economy and capitalism is in a total mess.

The magnificent crow. The large black bird that we see so commonly flying in the skies in the pacific northwest, and perching on the tall trees is our avian brother. And as feeling, living beings, we should have a caring and respectful relationship with them. The department of fish and wildlife, as a publicly funded organization that represents the citizens should make policies based on respect and caring for wild animals. However they are operating in an exploitative manner toward wildlife, a legacy that has been handed down from the 1850s, and should be modernized to an approach that is ecological and compassionate.
A despairing country elected a president who promised change. Americans arrived from every state to witness in bitter cold Obama's swearing in ceremony. The mall was packed in a way that it has never been for any other president.
The people's good will toward Obama and the expectations they had for him were sufficient for Obama to end the gratuitous wars and enact major reforms. But Obama has deserted the people for the interests. He is relying on his non-threatening demeanor and rhetoric to convince the people that change is underway.
The change that we are witnessing is in Obama, not in policies. Obama is morphing into Dick Cheney.
President Barack Obama has nominated a lawyer for the nation's largest toxic polluters to run the enforcement of the nation's environmental laws.

The past week has provided a definitive demonstration of the subservience of the Obama administration and the Democratic Party to the military-intelligence apparatus of American imperialism. Day by day, the White House and the Democratic-controlled Congress delivered decisions along the lines demanded by the Pentagon and CIA, in many instances directly repudiating the campaign promises made to win popular support during the 2008 election.
When the reality of the economic crisis first made itself known, many who realized what was happening dubbed it "the greatest crisis since the Great Depression." This description was more than bombast; it was a sober analysis of the immensity of the economic problems in the country — problems that had been building up for years.
The mainstream media is now — for political reasons — in a constant clamor for the economy's elusive "rock bottom." This is so people will be more hopeful, less agitated, and more willing to let those who destroyed the economy continue running the country un-challenged. Every time a new economic indicator comes out that wasn't "as bad as expected," Wall Street cheers and politicians give their "we've turned the corner" speeches. Reality is thus turned on its head.
May 18, 2009 "Information Clearing House" --- Anyone who has ever wasted good money on a clunker only to drop the transmission 15 minutes after leaving the car-lot, knows the feeling. It's like a swift-kick in the groin followed by weeks of fist-pounding rage. It's called buyer's remorse; "Gawd, I wish I hadn't bought that piece of dogshite!"
There are probably a lot of former-Obama supporters feeling that same agonizing sense despair now that President Rainbow has done an about-face on every campaign promise he made. So much for "truth in advertising", eh?

The issue of when Pelosi knew is a distraction.
While nearly every state is facing severe budget deficits, New York State showed how to balance the budget without completely destroying the social safety net. New York took a few progressive steps forward in balancing the budget and painted a more sensible picture of "shared sacrifice" than what the average politician has proposed. Instead of sacrificing social programs and increasing taxes that affect primarily workers, two new tax brackets were created for New York's wealthier citizens, generating 4 billion dollars in state revenue.
Prior to the new budget, New York's highest tax rate was 6.85 percent, for anyone making $20,000 or more. The additional tax brackets are 7.85% and 8.97% for those whose income is more than $300,000 and $500,000. These new rates are temporary and set to expire in 3 years. According to the Times-Union, "In broad strokes, the agreement closes the state's estimated $16.2 billion budget deficit through $6 billion in federal stimulus dollars, $6 billion in cuts to an array of programs, and $4 billion in new revenue through an increase in the personal income tax on affluent New Yorkers." The grassroots movement that pushed this "wealthy tax" forward not only asked that new tax brackets remain permanent but also asked for a third tax bracket on New Yorkers earning $1 million or more annually, which would have raised an additional billion dollars.

The Capitalist "health care" system is not simply broken, but shattered. Suffering multiple breaks, a one payer health care system will not in itself suffice to guarantee Americans a health care system comparable with the rest of the world.

With the decline of the SPP, a rift may be emerging as to the next course of action to take in regards to North American integration. Some would like to see more focus placed on Canada-U.S. bilateralism while others believe that trilateralism should always be the way to go. The vision of a North American Union has not been abandoned.
Thousands of studies world wide condemn wireless technology as the most under reported public debacle facing humanity and the most devastating environmental challenge facing all biological systems. The technology has proliferated with virtually no oversight and continues to cause cancer and destroy DNA and the blood brain barrier. The installation of WiFi in virtually all Portland Public Schools directly threatens the health of our children while they are exposed to a large dose of low frequency radiation all day long.

Gee - the bureaucrats, minions, operatives, flunkies and errand boys all knew about it. The only ones who didn't know about it were the Public, Obama and Bloomberg (uh, until he checked his Blackberry). Gates, "incensed" though he claims to be, DOES appear to have been aware of this event in advance, if you read closely.
I have been volunteering with Western Service Workers Association for almost a year now, and have not come across any of the so-called "authoritarianism" described in another article in this publication. I have seen no "brain washing" nor are there any "weapons" stored anywhere on the site of their office in Santa Ana California.
Mending our own pockets, setting system stabilization above profit maximization and long-term survival above short-term constraints is vital for an open, dynamic and future-friendly world.
In an extraordinary interview published in Sunday's New York Times magazine, President Obama outlined his vision for the US economy in a piece entitled "After the Great Recession."
