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.

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.

I think Iguodala is right. However, it is a little surprising to hear a player speak about the lockout in such a way.
