Job Tracker: Who is exporting US jobs

Handy dandy way to check facts. There is no natural law that says you have to export jobs to stay in business – grin – except the law of greed. And there are examples of companies that care enough about their workers to say no to a short term increase in net profit by firing their current workforce. For those with short memories – the steelworkers and autoworkers of the 1960s and 1970s are the ones who built the foundation for today’s economy. Now their kids and grandkids are getting the bums rush from the Walmarts and GMs of America. So, if you care and want the facts of who is doing what – here is a source.

Amplify’d from www.guardian.co.uk

The UK must increase its support for the Global Fund’s battle against Aids

Hope is not such a popular word these days. As budgets are cut and belts are tightened, grand ambitions and aspirations – particularly when it comes to tackling the global Aids problem – have been squeezed out.

If this is the case, the UK must send a signal to the rest of the world that this is not a retreat from our commitment to the Global Fund.
Annie Lennox is the founder of the SING Campaign, which works with Comic Relief to tackle HIV. She is also a goodwill ambassador for UNAIDS, which operates as a technical adviser to Global Fund grant applicants.Read more at www.guardian.co.uk
 

Settler Terrorists should be policed and not answered in kind

All terrorists, not just settler terrorists, read from the same book and hope that their targets over-react to gain them new recruits and to strike fear into those who just want to live their lives in peace. They should be hunted down, arrested, tried, and imprisoned as the criminals against humanity that they are.

Settlers Torch Another West Bank Mosque

Torched mosque of Beit Fajjar

Not to be outdone by the magnificent handiwork of their settler colleagues of Yizhar, who burned down a nearby mosque several months ago, residents of Gush Etzion torched the mosque of Beit Fajjar, a village near Bethlehem.  Haaretz calls this a “price tag” action by settlers warning the Israeli public of their displeasure with the prospect that Bibi Netanyahu’s government might contemplate renewing the settlement freeze.
