Carol Coren

grassroots advocacy initiatives need resources for extraordinary expenses involved in legal services, filing fees and communications costs. Still, their strength resides in the dedication and sweat equity of their constituencies and that requires very modest outlays. We are however entering a period that will test people who are struggling to cover costs of transportation and food. Convening for a weekly meeting might begin to be too great a sacrifice for people in rural communities and providing modest amenities like coffee and cake to people who have taken time to convene and to empower a grassroots movement might be too high a cost for those who convene such groups. Rule are changing and it is a pity that resources are diminishing as this happens.

Grassroots organizing is so 70's? And what, Medicare is so Sixties?

It's not an either/or question. It's not one film vs. 3,000 organizers.

mbt the Masai Barefoot Technology built into the shoe encourages better posture, better muscle tone and more energy expenditure in everything from standing still to running full tilt.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)Voters in one suburban New York community alreadypaying some of the highest property taxes in the country will decide whether toback a $400 million referendum for a new hockey arena and ballpark.Nassau County officials supporting the effort say the August vote is neededto give officials enough time to build a replacement for the Nassau VeteransMemorial Coliseum before the New York Islanders lease expires in 2015. Withouta new building, the hockey teams owner, Charges Wang, has said he may have tomove off Long Island.Proponents, including labor unions, tourism officials and many businessgroups, say the construction project will bring jobs and spark economic growthin the community just east of New York City. Opponents say Nassau County, which is under the thumb of a state watchdogagency after a fiscal emergency was declared earlier this year, should not beasking taxpayers to foot the bill.Turnout was reported wholesale falcons jersey to be extremely low by early afternoon Monday.Elections Commissioner William Biamonte said the turnout was only about 5percent of all registered voters.Republican County Executive Edward Mangano insists the project wouldgenerate income to overcome any initial taxpayer investment. He says amanagement company created by Wang would be required to pay 11.5 percent ofrevenues generated from all events, including hockey games, wholesale bears jersey with a guaranteedannual minimum of $14 million. He also said the county would reap sales taxrevenue.He said the average cost to taxpayers would be as little as $14 per year,though others say the average could be four times higher.All transactions have wholesale bills jersey risks, says Mangano, who argues that allowing theIslanders to pack up and shuttering the coliseum would be more costly totaxpayers. He also points to studies that claim the project will create over1,500 construction jobs and over 3,000 permanent jobs.The cost to run the referendum is estimated to be $2 million, which Wangsays he will pay, but only if voters approve the project. Even if voters givetheir consent, there are still major hurdles. The county legislature must signoff on the borrowing, as does the Nassau Interim Finance Authority, whichearlier this year declared wholesale cardinals jersey a fiscal emergency in Nassau, citing a budget deficitover $100 million.The most vocal opponent is a group called the Association for a Better LongIsland. Executive director Desmond Ryan said a county already awash in debtshouldnt be taking on additional financial obligations.Mangano doesnt want to be the elected official who loses the Dodgers,Ryan said in a reference to the notorious decision by the owners of baseballsBrooklyn Dodgers wholesale browns jersey to move to Los Angeles in 1958. I have tried to make it clearthis coliseum deal is not about the Islanders. Sports franchises come and go.Wang tried to privately develop the property about eight years ago,envisioning an expansive wholesale panthers jersey complex of office buildings, apartments and retailstores. That proposal, called wholesale bengals jersey the Lighthouse Project, failed because ofcommunity opposition. Now, he is backing a publicly financed plan.Nassau residents last year paid an average property tax bill of $11,500,nearly the highest in the country. The county portion of that tab is 16.4percent. The rest goes to finance schools, though the county has no say overschool district spending, which is decided in each local municipality.

死者·行方不明者約100人に上った台風12号による紀伊半島豪雨から2カ月が経過した。その間、死者·行方不明者や孤立集落が集中した奈良県十津川村や五條市大塔(おおとう)町は注目が集まり、復旧·復興に多くの支援も寄せられた。一方で、被害の深刻さや復旧の姿が伝わらず、風評被害に苦しみながら復興に向かっている被災地もある。
同県中部に位置する川上村は、県内で発生した約1800カ所の土砂崩れの中でも、人家に隣接した崩落としては最大規模で、土砂崩壊量が概算で東京ドーム1杯分に相当する大規模な土砂災害に見舞われた。土砂崩れの発生は9月4日午後5時半ごろ。役場の電灯が突然消え、近くの国道169号を大量の土砂が埋め尽くした。

ティンバーランド

ティンバーランド労組への配慮も顕著だ。会社員らの厚生年金と公務員らの共済年金の一元化問題では、公務員労組から支援を受ける議員が「人事院が来年2月に公表する会社員と公務員の退職金比較調査の結果が出るまでは、共済年金の特権的な上乗せ部分である職域加算の取り扱いを決めるべきではない」と主張。時間稼ぎをして法案の中身を骨抜きにしようという意図は明白だが、骨子案はあっさりとその主張を受け入れた。

 ティンバーランド首相は年末までに、社会保障分野と消費税増税部分をあわせた一体改革素案をまとめる方針だ。古本伸一郎党税調事務局長は12日の党一体改革?税制両調査会合同会議で、「31日の除夜の鐘のところまで、みなさんと相談していきたい」と強調したが、抜本的な改革は先送り必至の情勢だ。
