There are several common household products that may seem safe yet in truth contain toxins. Some of these toxin containing household products may surprise you. One disturbing fact is that a few of these products are daily use products.
For my first post on this red state blog I thought I would keep things light and revisit some of the old republican campaign ads that had the highest impact. Each ad will be for a different republican so that I don’t end up covering the same politician twice. The ads that I create will be the best solely by my opinion, so you may or may not agree.
Adults need city parks too. I was out earlier this week and had myself all bundled up and ready to go for a nice relaxing yet brisk walk. It was then that I realized I actually had to travel quite a bit for simple yet also missing luxury.
Governor Ronald Bentley finally admits that the Alabama immigration laws need a second look. The state of Alabama has the toughest immigration reform laws out of each state. As a result, the state has received quite a bit of controversy. Only after harsh criticism has Governor Bentley come to recognize the need to reevaluate the current immigration laws in Alabama.
The labor board has dropped charges against Boeing after a recent settlement between the labor board and Boeing. As part of the settlement, the union has also agreed to drop charges of federal labor law violations. This cased was stemmed from Boeing opening a manufacturing plant in a right to work state following 2 strikes in 2005 and 2008.
Could a successful business executive, and public figure be a good candidate for Commander in Chief? Could a new American tycoon "Rockefeller" type be president? Possibly, his stances on humanitarian efforts may not sit so popularly with the masses, as he is opposed to official United States military involvement in humanitarian interventions around the world, however this information is per July of 2000. This sort of non-interventionist policy is reminiscent of the Monroe Doctrine. There is the provisional interventionist policy for violent threats, meaning the United States would still support allies in times of crisis, thereby maintaining alliances long standing and improving America's worldwide image. It is possible that this will also assist in fixing the overall budget shortfalls and deficits, by providing focused humanitarian efforts and assistance to Americans in need and reducing costs for operations abroad.
One of the first to really be public about this acknowledgment was Cherry Knoll, Michigan, principal Chris Parker who had to deal with one of his teachers who decided to remove the the word “gay” from the song “Deck the Halls.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States was a man of change. During his time and even after he was and is commonly seen as a man who was willing to take chances and fight for the survival of his fellow Americans. He was a man who stood up and made others stand up with him to pursue and achieve the American Dream through hard work and dedication. I can only wonder, what would FDR think now?
So you look at the protesters, expecting to see at least something vaguely threatening. Maybe not Molotov cocktails, but at least some sticks, a slingshot maybe. Only there's nothing of the sort. In virtually every single picture, the protesters are completely unarmed. They're also unarmored. Every now and then, you'll find a picture where someone is throwing something, but it's inevitably something that could not possibly inflict any harm on anyone as heavily armored as those riot cops. 99% of the protesters don't have anything that could be construed as a weapon by any stretch of the imagination.
And then the riot police charge, and you notice who they single out to be knocked down and beaten with clubs. Not big, burly protesters- of whom there are few indeed!- but nineteen-year-old girls, eighty-four-year-old women, skinny little guys who look like a breeze would knock them over.
Some of them even take it so far as to advocate the death penalty (by stoning, no less!) for everything from having your hair too long to mouthing off to your parents, as well as for the usual suspects of homosexuality and idolatry. Everything listed as a death penalty crime in the Old Testament would become one again in a Dominionist America.
For one thing, there was never any significant organized resistance to the Nazis in Germany, unlike the situation in occupied countries such as France, where large partisan organizations waged guerilla campaigns. The percentage of the German people that either actively or passively supported the Nazi regime was just too high for anything like an armed resistance. Such resistance activity as did occur was mostly sporadic, disorganized or limited to conspiracies within the military.
Another factor is that one of the only significant acts of resistance to the Nazi regime was actually a nonviolent protest in a public square, the famous Rosenstrasse protest held by the German wives and family members of Jewish men at risk of deportation to the concentration camps. In all the years of Nazi rule, the Rosenstrasse protest was the only incident of German citizens publicly protesting some aspect of the Holocaust, and it was the only incident in which the Nazis arguably backed down.
Just six years after hosting the world's first civilian nuclear accident in 1952, Canada's Chalk River facility was the location of another accident in 1958. This one is not known to have resulted in any deaths or major injuries, but it certainly had the potential to do.
This seems like an excellent way to promote the fair trade concept. People interested in ethical purchasing can visit a fair trade town for tourism or shopping, knowing that they will easily be able to find their favorite fair trade products and possibly even find some new favorites. The businesses in the town benefit because of the increased traffic at restaurants, hotels and gift shops. The town benefits from the increased tax revenues. The people who make the fair trade products see some increased business and a little more money in their pockets. Finally, the tourists benefit because they can enjoy their visit while knowing that their actions support ethical purchasing and fair trade.
The first goal is for the town council to pass a formal resolution encouraging fair trade and supporting the goals of the fair trade movement. The town must agree that fair trade products such as coffee or pastries will be served at town meetings and other official functions.
The second goal is for the retail shops, restaurants and caterers in the town to serve a wide range of products certified as being fair trade. The organization provides specific targets for meeting this goal.
The third goal is that the town must have established support for fair trade from prominent community organizations such as employers, churches or other entities. These organizations must not only support fair trade, but actually use fair trade products whenever they can.
