  • 'Fracking' protesters say drilling jobs not worth environmental risks

    (CNN) -- Charlotte Bevins' long blond hair blows in the wind as she stands amid protesters, her eyes red and puffy from crying. Just four months ago, Bevins' brother, Charles, lost his life in a drilling accident in central New York. He was 23, a father of two small children. Gazing at the ground, Bevins tightens her grip on the handles of the baby stroller that cradles her young niece while hundreds of protesters lining the nearby streets wave signs and yell around her. No fracking way. No fracking way. No fracking way, the crowd chants. Bevins recently made the...
  • Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution [The National Organization for Women]

    01/06/2011 4:56:33 PM PST · by Sub-Driver · 37 replies
    Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution We won't stand for sexists like Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia interpreting women's rights as unprotected in the U.S. Constitution. In a recent interview, Scalia erroneously stated that women are not protected under the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. Right now, five justices have the power to pick and choose when women should be considered full citizens. And that's not right. We need to add an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution that will guarantee women and men equal status under the law. I stand with NOW today to demand that...

    Hell Seriously Breaks Loose With Bill O'Reilly On The View (Whoopi, Joy Behar Walk Off The Set) Today Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the set after getting in a heated argument with guest Bill O'Reilly, who said, "Muslims killed us on 9/11." Before she left, Whoopi screamed, "That is such bu*l*hit!" The tension began the moment O'Reilly walked on and didn't great the panel with the customary handshakes hugs, and instead, fist-bumped them. Joy asked him, "Do you have OCD or germ-phobia?" Shortly thereafter, he needled Whoopi about her standoffish body language, and then intimated—with some incredibly creepy...

    Alliant Energy’s Iowa customers will be seeing higher bills this month to pay for the utility’s investments in green energy. The utility plans to ask state regulators for a 13.8 percent, $163 million annual rate increase today to pay for a new $468 million wind farm, and to improve its ability to transmit energy from renewable sources. The 200-megawatt Whispering Willow Wind Farm in Franklin County is the first owned by Alliant’s Interstate Power & Light utility. It began operating in December, and has enough capacity to serve about 150,000 homes at full output. Improving the transmission grid to enable...

    Andrew Breitbart takes on the elitist media, specifically the three female "feminists" who have been on the trash Sarah bandwagon from the beginning, and he does it with gusto: What a shock that Maureen Dowd devoted her New York Times column Sunday to attack Sarah Palin. It did not so much criticize Alaska's governor for prematurely stepping down from her official duties as to finish off what sister snipers Katie Couric and Tina Fey began last fall. The assassination of Sarah Palin - by media. For those who didn't pay attention, Mrs. Palin's unexpected stratospheric rise as a national political...

    MEXICO CITY - Demonstrators stormed a Wal-Mart on the outskirts of Mexico City on Tuesday, accusing the U.S.-based retailer of selling low-cost goods at the expense of workers, farmers and public markets. About 250 protesters chanted "Out! Out!" in front of Wal-Mart's corporate headquarters before entering the adjacent store, where they blocked aisles for about 30 minutes before leaving. There were no immediate reports of arrests, injuries or damage. Ruben Garcia, a Mexican citizen who works with San Francisco-based activist group Global Exchange, said the discount chain's low prices take business away from the country's traditional public markets and depress...

    It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has eliminated a population equal to that of America's 60 largest cities. Forty-eight and a half million Americans have vanished without a trace! According to Dennis Howard, who heads The Movement for a Better America, "that's not some imaginary nuclear contingency plan. It is in fact the cumulative impact of nearly 34 years of abortion on demand.” MT. FREEDOM, NJ - September 29, 2006 -- It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has already eliminated...

They're financially bankrupt. They've been morally bankrupt since they started, before they started, but financially bankrupt -- and now the Drive-By Media is just having sort of like a Vagina Monologue moment here with the announcement that Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda and Rosie O'Donnell have mounted a radio talk show network to challenge me.

    But don't question theirs (gallon-sized hat tip: Coalition of the Swilling)... The Chicks can't hide their disgust at the lack of support they received from other country performers. "A lot of artists cashed in on being against what we said or what we stood for because that was promoting their career, which was a horrible thing to do," says Robison. "A lot of pandering started going on, and you'd see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultra-patriotism." "The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism,"...

    Most of Mrs. Bush's humor at the correspondents' dinner was just right: Edgy but not over the edge. But I think the stripper and horse jokes were totally beneath her. Just put it to the other-shoe test: If it were Teresa Heinz Kerry standing up on the dais telling the same jokes, the conservative commentariat would be buzzing for the rest of the year about what a tasteless skank she is.

    On March 31, 2005, thirty years after feminism’s hey-day in the 1970s, a woman died from dehydration, on the orders of her adulterous husband, who was supported by the courts in his quest to end his wife’s life. On February 25, 1990, Theresa Schindler Schiavo collapsed in her home and suffered significant brain damage. In 1992, Mrs. Schiavo’s husband Michael was awarded a $1,050,000 malpractice settlement, of which $300,000 was allocated for Mr. Schiavo’s loss of consortium and $750,000 for Mrs. Schiavo’s rehabilitative care. Mr. Schiavo subsequently refused to allow rehabilitative care for his wife. There are other reasons to...

    When Brooklyn gunshot survivor Yolanda Taylor was invited to a recent Mothers Against Guns gala as an honoree, she never dreamed she'd be stiffed out of her complimentary commemorative journal — certainly not one that cost her friends $200, she says. Nor did she imagine she'd be erroneously "honored" for losing a loved one — in front of Mayor Bloomberg, no less — rather than for living to tell her story. But that's what Taylor says happened at Antun's Reception Hall in Queens on March 4, the 15th anniversary of her shooting. Now she says she's "disgusted" by the behavior...

    Today is a special day. It’s the 75-year anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s famous “salt march.” On March 12, 1930, Gandhi began a 240-mile march to nonviolently resist the British tax on salt and move India closer to independence from British rule. Gandhi changed India and the world, with his relentless, nonviolent struggle for peace and justice. (For more on Gandhi’s life, click here.)Today is also important because it begins our 7-day countdown to the March 19 worldwide day of protest against the Iraq war. Next Saturday, people throughout the world will raise our voices on the two-year anniversary of the US...

She asked during a debate on the Fox News Channel: "If ... lesbian and gay rights issues were such a serious kind of value, a core value, why did Jesus never talk about them?" Of course, the answer is that homosexuals have no special rights that distinguish what they do and who they are. They have only the same rights...

    Pro-abortion group NARAL is using women serving in the military overseas to spread their abortion agenda. In a message to supporters last week, NARAL asked its members to "support our troops" by helping to "protect servicewomen's rights abroad." Appealing to people who believe having an abortion is their constitutional right, NARAL expressed concern that female members of the military are not being allowed to have abortions while they are serving on behalf of their country overseas. "The thousands of women serving abroad in our military are being denied their freedoms, even as they are fighting to defend ours," NARAL contended...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Does movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger have a problem with women? Although Schwarzenegger's run for governor of California has excited many voters tired of conventional politicians such Gov. Gray Davis (news - web sites), some are complaining the actor's past statements and behavior toward women cast doubts about his character. In the latest distraction from Schwarzenegger's official message of a "people's revolution" to retake Sacramento in an Oct. 7 recall vote, a group of women announced they would picket the former bodybuilder's campaign headquarters on Friday to protest what they call his misogynist views and crude behavior...
