James Risen's New Book: Exposing the "War on Terror". After 13 years of militarized zealotry and fearmongering in the name of fighting terrorism, the book - subtitled "Greed, Power, and Endless War" -- zeros in on immense horrors being perpetrated in the name of national security. It's also a wise response to repressive moves against him by the Bush and Obama administrations. Read more at huffingtonpost

Why you shouldn't vote in the election on November 4:
1.) You are happy that the governor and legislature raised taxes on senior citizens especially after promising not to. 2.) You are pleased that the governor and legislature diverted millions in funds from successful public schools to for-profit charter schools which perform poorly and are not held accountable for their poor performance. 3.) You are happy that the public schools are forced to cut teacher salaries, cut school programs, and then get blamed for all the ills of society. 4.) You are pleased that the governor and legislature won't do anything about our crumbling roads and infrastructure so that we can have more damaged cars and trucks, broken down bridges, flooded underpasses and accidents. 5.) You are happy that the governor and legislature eliminated the helmet law for motorcycles thus guaranteeing that more people will be more seriously injured and killed, and everyone else's insurance costs will go up. 6.) You are pleased that the governor and legislature passed a bill allowing the shooting of aerial fireworks by anyone in your formerly quiet neighborhoods before and after every holiday (including Christmas) thus threatening our peace and safety and threatening our homes with fire.
If you are pleased and happy with these things, then you should not vote in the November 4th election. You can be assured that your not voting will enable a continuation of the kind of decisions that our current governor and legislature are so eager to make.
