When Predictions Become Reality
2003 was the hottest year ever recorded, directly resulting in 10's of thousands of deaths world wide. The 10 hottest years in the 143-year-old global temperature record have now all been since 1990, with the three hottest being 1998, 2002 and 2001. Global Warming can no longer be ignored
We knew this day was comming. We've been hearing about it for years. Until recently no one has taken it seriously enough to do anything about it. We hear pseudo scientists (people who aren't really scientists at all) but paid spokespersons working for the very corporations with their own agenda, the very corporations that are guilty
of polluting our earth the most, these pseudo scientists on the corporate payroll have actually been denying scientific evidence on behalf of their corporate sponsors in order to deceive the public. The unstable world of climate change has long been a prediction. Now, the WMO says, it is a reality.
The Bush-Cheney energy policy agenda falls far too short in addressing this problem. That's probably because its drafting, spearheaded by Vice President Dick Cheney, came out of a series of meetings behind closed doors with top energy company executives. .
The truth is now so blatantly obvious it can no longer be denied. We can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines waiting for the government to take action while these corporations are still controlling the government.. We have procrastinated enought. We need to do today what should have been done a long, long time ago. Find out more Click Here

WHO WHAT WHEN WHERE HOW
In the United States, there is a widening gap between a citizen's ability to monitor his or her government and the government's ability to monitor a citizen. Average citizens have limited access to important government records, while available information is often illegible. Meanwhile, the government's eagerness and means to oversee a citizen's personal activity is rapidly increasing.
As the government broadens internal surveillance, and collaborates with private institutions to access data on the public, it is crucial that we maintain a symmetry of accountability. If we believe the United States should be a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" it is of central importance to provide citizens with the power to oversee their government.
At least as much effort should be spent building tools to facilitate citizens supervising their government as tools to help the government monitor individuals. Without government oversight there is no Democracy.According to Sen Henry Waxman, "The actions of the Bush Administration have resulted in an extraordinary expansion of government secrecy. External watchdogs, including Congress, the media, and nongovernmental organizations, have consistently been hindered in their ability to monitor government activities. These actions have serious implications for the nature of our government. When government operates in secret, the ability of the public to hold the government accountable is imperiled."

Goverment Information Awarness
Even though George W Bush has been the worse failure as a president in the history of the United States of America in both domestic and foreign policies, after nearly 4 years of one monumental mistake after another, over 40% of the American people still support him. The statement below will reveal the answer.
German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel said, "What experience and history teach is this -- that people and governments never learn anything from history, or act on principles deduced from it." Useful idiots continue to accept new promises built on a foundation of previously broken promises, This is what makes them useful."
The lesson that the Pentagon and the State Department took from Vietnam: The way to maintain support for a war is to keep the pictures and stories of the dead and the wounded from the American people.
