U.S. Health Care Bill passes - on the backs of women needing abortions

Yes, I'm delighted the U.S. Congress has passed a health care bill that includes a public option.  But I'm VERY distressed that the 'deal maker' was removing abortion funding.  Democracy Now asks a 'postcard of thanks' be sent to a Congressman. 

I want to start a campaign of 'postcards of thanks' being sent to the organizations which will have to fund raise to support the women needing abortions.  Any thoughts?  What organizations would be savvy enough to use this in a publicty / education campaign, or to support the women suffering from the restrictions?

JDL Canada @Toronto Star: 'leading Jewish advocacy'

Thus Meir Weinstein must be on drugs... he published a letter in the Star today claiming to be the leading Jewish voice in Canada:

And why, pray tell, is the Star giving him a platform?

Someone should complain.

 Here are a couple of letters that were published about him JDL Canada earlier:

 ( apparently they frightened two women and forced them to leave a Ryerson event, and yet JDL is being hailed as noble and humanitarian )

Thoughts on Suzanne Weiss' article "How To Really Fight Anti-Semitism"...

Thoughts and concerns regarding yesterday's article by Suzanne Weiss regarding how to fight anti-Semitism...

 

Dear Ms. Weiss,

 

This is in reply to your article posted in rabble.ca.  Your introduction and your general comments on racism are accurate and thoughtful.  But by the middle of your first section, you started piling distortion upon falsehood in a continuous crescendo till the very end.

The Left is Left Behind

An interesting piece on the CCPA site by senior editor Ed Finn. In it, Finn address the following: If the left is right, politically, why isn't it more popular? A good catalyst for discussion, even if many NDPers will, no doubt, feel under attack.

But that's only fair. It's the NDP, as the largest organized force on the left,  that has been such an utter failure to address alternatives to neo-liberal orthodoxy and failed to abandon that repulsive prejudice and allergy to socialist ideas.
