ACLU: Petition to All U.S. Governors: What Happens in Arizona Stops in Arizona

ACLU: Petition to All U.S. Governors: What Happens in Arizona Stops in Arizona

The reactionary forces that have been pushing Arizona's racial profiling law will stop at nothing to see it enacted. And they’ll keep trying to spread their misguided tactics across the nation.

Only a vigorous rejection of this dangerous, un-American law will prevent it from spreading to other states. Sign the ACLU's petition to all 50 governors to let them know that you won't tolerate unconstitutional racial profiling in your state or anywhere in the United States.


To All 50 Governors:

There are numerous reports that state lawmakers are considering bills similar to that of Arizona's SB1070. This law is discriminatory, unfair and inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution and comes at a high cost both to taxpayers and to our treasured civil liberties.

I strongly oppose any effort to adopt this kind of legislation anywhere in the country. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Signed,
[Your Name]

(Barb) So now the Dems are striking back and the Repubs are crying 'Foul!' “Now the Democrats are responding in kind. How are the GOP responding? The article continues "McConnell and other Republicans described their 75-minute meeting with Obama as "productive," with several urging the president to tell Democrats to stop bashing the House GOP Medicare plan, which polls show to be deeply unpopular.”

The Maddow Blog - Maine moves to bust public unions

The Maddow Blog - Maine moves to bust public unions

Judy Taylor Studios

The labor mural that Maine Governor Paul LePage took down this year.

"What Republicans did to the public employees unions in Wisconsin this year was almost disguised, really, compared to what's happening in Maine right now. In Wisconsin, they reduced the value of belonging to a union by taking away collective bargaining rights, while at the same time making employees more aware of paying for union membership by ending the automatic deduction of dues from their checks.

In Maine, the state legislature has revised a bill that would make membership in a public-employees union optional. They call it "right to work," and there's no finer way to siphon power from unions and drive wages down -- that's why business interests want these laws and union workers hate them. Indiana Republicans gave up on a "right to work" bill this year rather than pick this particular fight."

US Uncut is a grassroots movement taking direct action against corporate tax cheats and unnecessary and unfair public service cuts across the U.S. Washington's proposed budget for the coming year sends a clear message: The wrath of budget cuts will f...all upon the shoulders of hard-working Americans. That's unacceptable. Obama seeks to trim $1.1 trillion from the budget in the next ten years by cutting or eliminating over 200 federal programs, many dedicated to social services and education. For instance, it cuts in half funding to subsidize heating for low-income Americans; limits an expansion of the Pell grant program for students; and decreases Environmental Protection Agency funding by over 12%. Meanwhile, Republicans are using their new House majority to slash spending even more brutally. The GOP has made it clear that they are bent on raiding funds for Social Security, Medicare, education; determined to kill health care reform; and gut needed investments in infrastructure, climate change and job creation, at a time when America needs it most. These cuts will come on top of very painful austerity measures made at the state-level across our nation–-worth hundreds of billions--since the recession began. In short, budget cuts demonstrate that Washington has abandoned ordinary Americans. But there is an alternative: Make corporate tax avoiders pay. Enjoying record profits and taxpayer-funded bailouts as the economy slowly recovers from a financial crisis, nearly two-thirds of US corporations don't pay any income taxes, instead opting to abuse tax loopholes and offshore tax havens. According to this study from the non-partisan Government Accountability Office, 83 of the top 100 publicly traded corporations that operate in the US exploit corporate tax havens. Since 2009, America’s most profitable companies such as ExxonMobil, General Electric, Bank of America and Citigroup all paid a grand total of $0 in federal income taxes to Uncle Sam. Tax havens alone account for up to $1 trillion in tax revenue lost every decade, money that could be invested in K-12 education, colleges, public health, job creation and hundreds of other worthy public programs. If we pay our taxes, why don’t they? If corporations profit here, shouldn't they pay here? It’s time for ordinary Americans to fight back and demand an end to the corporate tax avoidance. Join US Uncut and together let's make corporate tax avoiders pay. US Uncut is a horizontal movement. There are no centrally planned protests. If you want one in your town or city, you'll have to take it on yourself. Read our blog about what to do next. Also remember to visit UK Uncut for some inspiration. See you on the streets.

This story appeared first in the Sunday edition of the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper.


"School districts across the state are being asked to release the names of teachers who called in sick during protests in February at the Capitol, a move that led to closures for a day or more in many districts.

It's unclear how many of the state's 424 districts received requests, but several conservative groups have made public records requests for teacher names. Most districts have released them."

Another big boost for Wisconsin Dems and the recall effort - The Plum Line - The Washington Post: "Another big boost for Wisconsin Dems and the recall effort"
By Greg Sargent- The Washington Post

"The key here is that the Republicans who are targets of the recall drive may now find themselves casting a vote for this proposal after the public has rendered a very clear verdict on it, and after a court has ruled that their earlier fealty to the unpopular Walker led them to trample ordinary democratic processes. Such a display of total deafness to public opinion would only reinforce impressions that these public officials have gone rogue and need to be dealt with by extraordinary means — and must be recalled."

Pollution that runs off of farm fields, parking lots, construction zones and city streets, referred to as nonpoint source pollution, is the major cause of polluted waters in Wisconsin. Since 2002, NR151 has helped reduce this pollution by setting standards for manure and nutrient runoff from agricultural lands and by requiring developers and municipalities to reduce runoff from urban areas."
