    " Dear Activist, We’re down to the wire—and we’re going to need IMMEDIATE response to stop Senator Frist when he attempts to trigger the “nuclear option” to shut down debate about judicial nominees. So, we’re trying something new and groundbreaking—and we need you to be part of it.It’s called Mass Immediate Response (MIR) and it allows thousands of people to contact the Senate and make their voices heard all at the same time. Here’s how it works: As soon as Senate Republicans trigger the “nuclear option,” we’ll send a text message to your cell phone. Embedded in that text message...

    Four Days Left to Stop Federal School Voucher Bill: Fax - Call - Pass It On Over the last few months, you've helped put the Radical Right's federal school-voucher agenda on the ropes. Senate leaders had to strip D.C. voucher legislation from the District of Columbia appropriations bill in order to pass it this week. But Congress' pro-voucher GOP leaders are trying to trump our grassroots efforts with more back-door legislative maneuvers. House and Senate negotiators are drafting a so-called "omnibus" bill that combines Congress' unfinished spending measures, and, as of this writing, privatization advocates have successfully inserted what would...

    Sorry to be so short on facts, but a new book ("Blood Money") charges LBJ with ordering the JFK hit.The author is the former business partner of the man he accuses of setting it up (??? Clark), and claims there is no doubt in his mind as to the truth of the allegation.Apparently LBJ was about to be indicted on another murder charge, and saw his ascendency to POTUS as his way out.

    University of Michigan News Service ^ | 2003/05/19 | Diane Swanbrow
    May 19, 2003 Student drug testing not effective in reducing drug use ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Drug testing of students in schools does not deter drug use, University of Michigan researchers have concluded, based on a large, multi-year national sample of the nation's high schools and middle schools. The findings were reported recently in the Journal of School Health. The research challenges the premise that has been central to the rationale for schools adopting a drug testing policy. The contention that testing is a deterrent to drug use also was an important consideration in a recent split decision by the United States...

    Posted on 02/20/2001 20:22:02 PST by JohnHuang2 (CNSNews.com) - Dick Morris, the consultant who once befriended and advised Bill Clinton, Tuesday accused Bill and Hillary of shipping 70 museum pieces, donated to the White House by prominent American craft artists, to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark. "There, they will presumably use [the artworks] to decorate the president's 5,000-square-foot penthouse apartment or other parts of the planned library -- although the artists who gave them had been assured that their works would be 'displayed in a prominent location in the White House at events throughout the years,'" said...

    More kids get high on household items By Deb Dawson Just about everyone in Hunterdon County has at least one item in the house that can be used to get high, and many Hunterdon teens know it. Aerosol cans of all types are used as inhalants — Cool Whip, Pledge, air freshener, you name it. Sheets of fabric softener placed in a bag, gasoline, paint, nail polish, permanent markers and White-Out are all used as inhalants, too. Want a “snot ball”? That’s what kids call a ball of rubber cement that is burned while the fumes are inhaled. Karin Gruss,...
