Congressional inaction on energy threatens consumers

BY By ALICE CLICK - guest columnist

Energy heats and cools our homes and fuels our transportation system. When the August blackout plunged millions of Americans into darkness, it became clear -- without necessary investments and without sound energy policies -- there is no guarantee that the lights will stay on. President Bush called the blackout "a wake-up call" to modernize the aging infrastructure of the nation’s power grid. The sudden loss of power serves as an important reminder that all energy -- not just electricity -- is critical to the American economy.

Football in America

©2003 Copley News Service, 9/3/2003 It's September and that means not just the start of school but the football season. When I started writing this syndicated column, the one subject I vowed I would never write about was football. I'm going to break that vow and write about my favorite sport not just because I am excited about watching both amateur and professional football, but because I am excited for the thousands and thousands of kids and their families (including mine) who are getting ready for their football seasons.

AmeriWaste

This week AmeriCorps supporters are rallying in Washington to get taxpayer’s money for the Clinton-created “volunteer” program that pays college students for community service. They are planning 100 hours of non-stop testimony detailing how AmeriCorps “volunteers” are rebuilding communities, assisting the elderly, mentoring children, and rekindling a sense of patriotism—and how none of this good work will happen if they don’t get $100 million more from Congress.

Cheering for Tort Reform

In the latest cheerleader lawsuit, a senior in Pennsylvania, is suing her high school because she was dropped from the squad. Last year, after being caught with alcohol and tobacco, a cheerleader sued a Minnesota high school that demoted her from captain for her actions. She did not dispute the charges, she simply felt the school dealt with her too harshly. These lawsuits, like thousands of others that needlessly clog the courtrooms of America, demonstrate the extent to which the legal system has lost its mooring.

Kulongoski will let tax referendum play out with voters

BY JANIE HAR

In his post-session public appearances, Gov. Ted Kulongoski has maintained his opposition to a tax-increase referendum that could blow an $800 million hole in the budget legislators balanced last week. But the Democratic governor -- who critics say abandoned an earlier pledge to "live within our means" -- has not specified how active he will be in efforts to quash the referendum's chances of getting on the Feb. 3 ballot or succeeding with voters if it does.

Texas: Medical Theft Ring Exposed; Trial Lawyers are Robbing Patients of Their Trust

“Ambulance-chasing personal injury trial lawyers must be stopped,” said Peggy Venable, director of the 25,000-member Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy, in response to stunning announcement of a medical record theft ringleader’s arrest in Houston on Thursday. “The public has no confidence in trial lawyers and now the worst of their tactics have been exposed,” stated Venable. “They have robbed decent, honest Texas citizens of their trust, their money, and their peace of mind.”

Poli-bytes: A behind-the-scenes look at state and local politics

BY Dawson Bell

YPSILANTI An unlikely protester We know Citizens for a Sound Economy and Young Americans for Freedom are two of the most conservative outfits in American politics. We know Detroit's John Conyers is one of the most liberal members of Congress. What we don't know is what Conyers was thinking when he decided to join a CSE-YAF protest of Howard Dean. Presidential candidate Dean, a former Vermont governor and liberal firebrand, was in town two weeks ago to raise money when a dozen protesters with antitax signs showed up.

Eco-terrorists Attack Free Market System

Eco-terrorism is becoming commonplace. They are attacking our liberties and the American economy. For Texas CSE members and friends who participated in the counter rally at the ExxonMobil shareholder meetings, we well recall the radical enviro terrorists being picked up in SUV’s last year. These are anti-American, anti-capitalism radicals who sabotage business and industry and demonize the American way of life.
