Re: Senator Feinstein Makes 68 year old woman homeless in Santa Ana.

A Senator breeches a promise from Decemer 16, 2003 and when her constituent representative gets a call that Lee Murphy was denied her housing voucher she says, "The Senator's words are not written in gold you know!" I ask why not? Then to add salt into the wound, I receive two more letters on March 5th and March 15th. reaffirming that one, my granddaughter was not allowed to be a co-signor for housing, a blatant untruth; and two, I was not in their district sorry. Eight letters addressed to this senator just asking how I could have a "Fair Hearing" from the discriminatory practices of OCHA were all ignored. I find the worker I discharged still on my case after sending a certified letter to fire her to her Superintendent in San Francisco. Is this who I should be pushing my shopping cart with all my worldly possessions down to the polls to vote for? I think not. But Why, Mr. & Mrs. America is this not a newworthy story to be printed and to be made for public view? And, is there not one attorney left out there in this abuse of my civil rights and the unconstitutional procedures that happened, and occurs on a daily basis as lower positioned government workers bury those they wish to at a national level too...not a matter to address and investigate thoroughly? I cannot believe that some attorney would not follow his own oath, "He takes whomever becons to whatever destination may be commanded."

Write me when you can folks, for America...this can happen to any one of you!

Merck Money

From www.cwa-cope.org (Communication Workers of America COPE)
Multinational Corporations: Studies in Greed

With sales up 5 percent last year, Merck & Co. was not satisfied: To hold down
costs, the pharmaceutical giant eliminated 3,200 jobs as 2003 drew to a close, and
announced that an additional 1,200 positions would go this year.

But Merck's picture abroad was quite different. It made 1,300 new hires in 2003
outside the United States. Company documents show that Merck had a cumulative $18
billion in foreign earnings untaxed by the end of last year, $3 billion more than in
2002. And the company said it had no intention of ever paying U.S. taxes on that
burgeoning sum.

"Foreign earnings of $18.0 billion...have been retained indefinitely by subsidiary
companies for reinvestment," Merck's annual filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission said. "No provision is made for income taxes that would be payable upon
distribution of such earning."

thumbs up to gutterpunks

I like gutterpunks, they're nice. Usually. Their music is excellent, too. "crusty" punk rock. heavy. Their lifestyle isn't healthy or safe, they have some good things going for them though. But there's nothing progressive about living in the gutter. Not perpetuating the system?? such a stupid argument, makes no sense!! but ohwell.

Undocumendted immigrants are human

Pat Tillman: American Hero

Pat Tillman was a great American. Period.

Leftys that populate the IndyMedia sites on the other hand are a radical group of Anti-American dopers that have accomplished ZERO in their pathetic lives.

The irony about the extreme liberals is that you scare mainstream Democrats to vote for Mr. Bush.

By the way... Keep up the great work GW!

Re: Pat Tillman: Dumb jock, baby killer?

Liberals make me sick.
They would never sacrifice themselves for America.
Ever read 1984? A futuristic liberal nightmare.
Thank God for people like Pat Tillman, true heoes.

Re: Peter Lumsdaine on Democracy Now

There have always been those people who have made history, sacrificed for it, lived it, and become it. These men and women will be immortal. They will live forever through their legacy if not remembered by name. I do not believe that their goal is to make history, but to change what may in time become history.

So while these men and women make their way through life, in the mountains, fields, on outskirts a thousand sprawling metropolises, or on the war-torn lands of the 21st century empire, history drags its feet beneath them until the next time the people dare rise up in its path, bracing themselves for the storm to come.
That time is now.

I have the deepest respect for these 5 men and women and the deepest love for Peter and Meg Lumsdaine, as their daughterand step daoughter.
