Ex-Judge Loses Long Island Red-Light Camera Fight (via CBS New York- News, Sports, Weather, Traffic and the Best of NY)

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A former judge has lost his court argument that a Long Island county's red-light camera system is unconstitutional. In a ruling last week, state Supreme Court Justice Anthony Parga denied Samuel Levine's claim that he should be able to confront in court those who installed Nassau County's red light cameras. Parga […]

Marina [Brazilian GP Prez cand] Suprises But She’s No King (or Queen) Maker (via Andrew Downie’s Brazil Blog)

When you get that sort of response you never know if it is representative of the bigger picture. There could be any number of reasons one polling station or area or city supports a particular candidate and until that point there was no reason to believe the polls that gave Marina around 14 percent of […]

Rowing with Roz by Ralph Nader (via Dandelion Salad)

The earlier Washington Post Style Page would have snapped up the suggestion in all its engrossing dimensions. This rejection, in favor of regular style features of entertainers and celebrities filled with strange angst, is representative of the contemporary media’s aversion to covering up-and-coming civic leaders as they did in the Sixties and Seventies. In those […]

Dissent in the age of Obama by Cindy Sheehan (via Dandelion Salad)

I have observed that it was one thing to be anti-Bush, but to be anti-war in the age of Obama is not to be tolerated by many people. If you will also notice, the only people who seem to know about the raids are those of us already in the movement. There has been no […]

We Need an Alternative to the Democrats and the GOP By Timothy V. Gatto (via Dandelion Salad)

Since the corporations control the government (and I mean exactly that) it really makes no sense that the labor unions of this nation should support the Democratic Party. Ask yourself this simple question; why should unions support a political party that is in the control of corporate interests that the unions were designed to thwart […]

Obama taps food-industry exec for top ag-research post (via Food Freedom)

Earlier this month, Congress approved Obama’s nomination of Catherine Woteki, the USDA’s undersecretary for research, education, and economics. The appointment drew little attention in the press, including the sustainable-food blogosphere. That’s surprising, because Woteki comes to her new position after a five-year stint as global director of scientific affairs for Mars, Inc., the multinational junk-food […]

Feminism, “The Social Network,” and A-holes (via Ecobeth)

Though some of this could be fictional and Hollywood-ized, it was pretty sad to watch all this. For such an intelligent film, I wonder if anyone else picked up on the misogyny. The film was cleverly made to put all these incidents together to paint the picture of the men involved as fiercely struggling with […]

Chris Hedges: March to Nowhere – Chris Hedges’ Columns – Truthdig

There was no war cry against Wall Street and the purveyors of death in the defense and health industry. There was no acknowledgement that unfettered capitalism and globalization are killing our ecosystem and creating a worldwide system of neo-feudalism. There was no acceptance that the corporate state must be dismantled if we are to save […]

Cheap Debt for Corporations Fails to Spur Economy – NYTimes.com

As many households and small businesses are being turned away by bank loan officers, large corporations are borrowing vast sums of money for next to nothing — simply because they can, Graham Bowley writes in The New York Times. Companies like Microsoft are raising billions of dollars by issuing bonds at ultra-low interest rates, but […]
