OUR VOTE IS NOT A LEGAL
We wanted you to hear from it first: The Supreme
Court just took a major step in knocking the referendum off the ballot.
Friday late-afternoon The Supreme Court put a
preliminary injunction on the referendum. That keeps the referendum from being
on the ballot until further notice.
It's an outrage. Our vote is not a legal
football to be kicked around by judges. It is a right, nothing something we
should have ever had to fight for. So we have every right to be angry at this
decision! It's against that which is deepest in a democratic system: voting and
the right for the people to have their say.
This is round one of a multiple-round fight. The implementation of the
preliminary injunction is a little unclear since the ballots are already
printed. Stickers should not be put to cover up the question on the physical
ballots, because there still remains a chance the injunction will be lifted. So
Yet our outrage needs to be heard. Money and
undue influence should not trump the interests of the public in Philadelphia and
We have two immediate actions:
1) Send a letter to the Gaming
Oversight Commission to tell them this situation is unacceptable. We
should not be worried about whether our right to vote is going to be upheld.
2) Join us for a "Our Vote is Not a Legal
Football" rally. Join us Monday, 12noon at City Hall [West-side,
Dilworth Plaza]. We will take a visit to our visiting Supreme Court
Let others know, by passing this message on
across the City and State. The bottomline:
This is an outrage; and this is the moment to show what we are made of. Our
movement will only use this fire to grow.

Bill Moyers has put together an amazing
90-minute video documenting
the lies that the Bush administration told to
sell the Iraq war to the
American public, with a special focus on how the
media led the charge.
I've watched an advance copy and read a transcript,
and the most
important thing I can say about it is: Watch PBS from 9:00 to
10:30 PM on
Wednesday, April 25.
What comes out of watching this show is a
that no investigation is needed by Congress, just as no
information was needed for the media to get the story right in the
place. The claims that the White House made were not honest mistakes.

falsehoods. And they were high crimes and misdemeanors.

concerned about the path to wholesale war this government is taking? There
is still an opportunity to be optimistic about our future. Dennis Kucinich
is the only Democratic Presidential Candidate to vote against the war in
Iraq. He has a 100% voting record against funding the war and has a plan
to bring our troops home and stabilize Iraq.
Here is the link to Dennis Kucinich's
