    Pope Francis urged a more humane global system that respects the poor and the environment, as he criticized the economic order, in an address to the United Nations on Friday. The pontiff, whose reform-minded approach has won him a rousing global following even from non-believers, offered his vision of a better world on his latest stop of a US tour that has brought thousands to the streets to welcome him. Taking the UN rostrum, the leader of the world’s more than one billion Catholics called for reform to global bodies, including the UN Security Council and financial lenders, to “limit...

    (excerpt) This moment at CPAC is even more important for the conservative movement as it happened at an important time when there is already a generational change going on in America.

There will surely be other homocon-related clashes within the conservative movement, just as the Democrat Party has regularly used the gay community as pawns in their re-election...

    WILKESBORO --Tammy Johnson watched her job hauled out the door at Ansell Golden Needles, one of a dozen textile factories to shut down in Wilkes County in the past three years. Johnson, 34, made work gloves until February 2002. But before she left, she wrapped her machine in plastic. She helped crate it for shipment to Mexico. She even helped make training videos and write manuals for the people who would replace her. The ordeal made Johnson very angry -- not at her employer, but at the elected leaders she believes pushed her job out of the country. "Our president...
