LEBANON: Plight of the trafficked domestic worker
Tuesday, September 29, 2009
October 15, 1969 Millions gather around the nation to say - no more to the war in Vietnam. It took 6 more years to end it and many thousands of lives.
October 17, 2009 Take action to re-start the Revolution and say no more war in Afghanistan - http://www.iraqmoratorium.org
If you agree that the Afghanistan problem needs new thinking, then maybe you ought to say so before we have something noone wants or will support.
October 17, 2009 Afghanistan action day.
40th Anniversary of the Vienam Moratorium
OCTOBER 17, 2009 - A National Day of Action
Growing numbers of anti-war organizations and activists are joining a call to organize anti-war events in local communities on Saturday, October 17, 2009 to demand an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Vietnam Moratorium.
people are still dying and suffering in a devastated Iraq, more US troops are being sent to war in Afghanistan, and billions of dollars are spent on both wars while social services are slashed at home during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

Swine flu developed within industrially grown herds of thousands of pigs in unsanitary conditions, which is a formula for creating the chance of a disease breakout.
The unintended consequence of the use of pigs kept in small numbers by families who collected and recycled garbage for income? A safer Cairo?
Why'd they really do it? They have had 30+ deaths from avian flu arising from "farming" too many chickens in unsanitary conditions for the world poultry market. Had to look good at something but not threaten the income of poultry traders. Add to this that the garbage pickers are minority Coptic Christians and the government probably thought no one would care.
But now the garbage is piling up
Swine-Flu Slaughter Leaves Cairo Without Pigs to Devour Trash
The Australians built 3 fences to keep rabbits out of Western Australia. It took 6 years to build and was a bit over 2,000 in length.
In 7 years, we have not been able to build 27 miles of fence using private contractors.
Grin - maybe Congress should have gone for the Public Option, copied the CCC of the Depression Years, and hired a bunch of out of work construction workers put them under the supervision of US Forestry trail builders and just do it!
Auditors reported last week that the high-tech, 28-mile “virtual” section of the fence was running a mere seven years behind this month’s planned opening.

I have more faith in Americans than those who make a living trying to scare us. I believe in standing up for what you believe, what you are for but try not to get too excited by the Dobbs and Becks of the world.
Sometimes though, you just gotta let loose and say: "What are these people thinking in making such wild and untruthful claims!"
Beautiful Afghan carpets, jewelry and other craft items were available for sale at the recent showing of the film, "Afghan Women, A History of Struggle", at the Fellowship of Reconciliation on Sept. 11th. Those who missed it can now help support the schools for women and girls for which these craft sales raise money.

Now, instead of sand, you get selected pieces of "soft " information and pass it around via leaks to reporters and op-ed types who will be glad to serve as trap assistants. The ant lion may be a someone working in the background who can always deny that he had anything to do with the trap.
The problem is that now, there are hundreds of folks who can tell everyone about the trap and the set up.
If we are really going to change how things have been done in the past to screw things up, I think that when a General has a report to send the President that he ought to deliver it in person and on camera and then they sit down and talk about it in public. If there are leaks about the report, then fire the General who can't do the job on his/her own.
Lincoln has to fire a lot of folks until he got two winners, Obama should do the same.
