No on X - Santa Cruz utility tax hits poor people

In a vote-by-mail election set for August, 2005, Santa Cruz residents will be asked to approve another utility tax. Of all the things to tax, essentials are the worst possible choice. Whether you're rich or poor, you still have to flush the toilet.

The proposed 3 to 12% utility tax comes on top of a 7% utility tax and is made worse by a massive, multi-year, 124% increase in city water rates, not to mention a backward water pricing scheme that already has small users paying up to 580% more per gallon than big users.

As usual, Santa Cruz City Council calls itself progressive but doesn't behave that way. Please join me in voting no on Measure X.

Snowed: US (Corporate) Media Ignore climate change

author: Ross Gelbspan / Mother Jones

Though global climate change is breaking out all around us, the U.S. news media has remained silent. Not because climate change is a bad story-to the contrary: Conflict is the lifeblood of journalism, and the climate issue is riven with conflict.

Kucinich/Abercrombie need help addressing concerns about Iraq Withdrawal

Now's the chance to explain to some congresscritters how you feel about the need to bring the troops home, and the truth about what is happening in Iraq. Some congresscritters people are evil, true...however some are good people whose biggest crime was trusting the president. They have been watching too much Corporate News and have no clue what is really happening. These are the people we need to a respectful manner. Many are probably incredibly embarrassed they have been lied to and have been going along with the entire sham so we need to be gentle with them.
