Disheartened

While observing Fox News, it was disheartening to see what their viewers were subjected to. It seems the Republicans’ far right wing extremists are conveying their idealistic visions against various nationalities, social diversities or political beliefs with an absence of emotion concerning women’s health issues, children’s rights, voter suppression, Seniors, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid...

Things That Matter

All of us in small towns and large not only have the right to speak on behalf of our neighbors and ourselves, we have the duty and responsibility to do so -- and 238 years ago, we made a clear Declaration to do just that...

An Anecdote Driven Mind

So, is Thomas Kachadurian now the Northern Express’ official resident ranter? His recent factfree, hard-hearted column suggests it. While others complain about the poor condition of Michigan’s roads and highways, he rants against those we employ to fix them...

No On Prop 1

Are we being conned? Are those urging us to say “yes” to supposedly ”revenue neutral” ballot proposal 1 on August 5 telling us all the pertinent facts? Proposal 1 would eliminate the personal property tax businesses pay to local governments, replacing its revenue with a share of Michigan’s 6 percent use tax paid by us all on out-of-state purchases, hotel accommodations, some equipment rentals, and telecommunications...

Fix VA Tragedy

The problems within the Veterans Administration identified under former President Bush continue to hinder the delivery of quality health care to the influx of physically wounded and emotionally damaged young men and women...

Women Take Note

I find an interesting link between the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby and the crisis on the southern border. Angry protesters shout at children to go home. These children are scared, tired, hungry and thirsty, sent to US prisons awaiting deportation to a country where they may very likely be killed...

Start the New Year with cool tunes for a good cause

Kristi Kates - December 27th, 2007
Start The New Year With Cool Tunes For a Good Cause
Promo agency Waxploitation brought together a plethora of musicians around the holidays to put on their fourth benefit auction for the victims of the ongoing conflict in Darfur, with 100% of the auction’s proceeds earmarked for Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam America, and Human Rights Watch. Participants got to bid on such items as signed guitars and other memorabilia from Bloc Party, Gorillaz, The Decemberists, Coldplay, Thievery Corporation, Gnarls Barkley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brian Wilson, and plenty of others. This particular auction may be over, but if you still want to help (and get some great tunes to boot), you can snag Waxploitation’s Causes 1 compilation CD, which is downloadable now on iTunes and which includes tracks from Bloc Party, International Noise Conspiracy, David Sylvian, Teargas & Plateglass, and more. Check it out at http://www.waxploitation.com/2007/causes.html...
