-UPDATE-090106

It looks like the challange is on. Ron Coleman has filed suit challenging the contest. He is throwing an entire noodle bowl of points at the court in hopes something will stick, HERE.

 

Love him or hate him, it’s official! Except, it’s not quite. read the link. The “certification” will only stand if Coleman doesn’t challange.

-UPDATE-

The notice discussed below has since been superseded by another, so you will not see it at the bottom of my page. However, it is still on the FDA website. It’s website issuance date is still in question.

More Melamine found in wafer rolls, (cookies), Recalled from National Brands.

If you don’t know, make the jump and read the FDA notice in the “continue reading” below. 

If you will notice at the bottom of my blogsite this notice is listed in the FDA website today, Jan. 5, 2009. However, the notice is dated for Issuance on December 19th. At least two blogs were aware of a notice from Associated Press this early: Salon.com and Boston.com. The notices may have been derived from the company’s site.  This is not the first time I have noticed a discrepancy in issuance date and notice date from the FDA.

Maybe there are simple and innocent answers for this gap. However, it’s clear that the FDFA did not issue a website national recall throughout the entire holiday season, even though they may have had the information. Someone did. Who benefited? What are we going to do about it?

Kudos to Salon.com, Boston.com and AP. Let’s hope all the wafers were distributed to your area, instead of nationwide, and returned.  Otherwise, some of us may be looking at a slightly more plastic life. I didn’t, but if I thought I had ingested some of this garbage, I would talk to my doctor; even if I  wasn’t sick. It never hurts hurt to establish a baseline. (more…)

The New Mexico Independent just put this out:

BREAKING NEWS: Richardson withdraws

N.M. governor cites federal investigation into a California company with state contract

 By TRIP JENNINGS 1/4/09 11:36 AM

[Gov. Bill Richardson is withdrawing his name for consideration as U.S. Commerce Secretary, citing a federal investigation into a California company being investigated by the FBI.l Richardson has withdrawn his name from candicacy as Us commerce Secratary…]

Hmm. He could  be guilty of something. Or, as a personal observer to, and recipient of what the VRWC smear tactic did in the Clinton admin, he may think it might be too much for the Obama administration to take on right now.

The VRWC smear campaign came at a cost of more than 70 million voters dollars and the use of  investigation as  a political tool rather than a search for truth. 

I still don’t like him for what he did to HRC, but I’m going to wait and see how this investigation turns out, and then decide who to point fingers at.

P.S. the fact that the NYT, AP and Wapo are leading the charge on this uproar, just like with the VRWC allegations, does not inspire my trust.

The ACLU could use little help. Seems a few of their regular contributors got stung by the Madoff bee. We are into the new year so I don’t believe contributions would count for 2008. However, the need is still there and contributions can be counted against 2009. 

In the  mean time, they have filed suit on the  discriminatory Arkansas Act 1 law that went into affect on January 1st:

ACLU Asks Court To Strike Down Arkansas Parenting Ban (12/30/2008)

Over A Dozen Families Affected By Act 1 Step Forward To File Lawsuit

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

CONTACT: media@aclu.org

LITTLE ROCK– The American Civil Liberties Union today filed a lawsuit seeking to strike down a new law that bans any unmarried person who lives with a partner from serving as an adoptive or foster parent in the state of Arkansas. 

At a press conference at the Arkansas State Capitol this morning, several of the plaintiffs described how Act 1, which is set to go into effect on January 1, impacts their families and why they decided to be part of the case.

A pattern where a man hits, threatens, verbally assaults, intimidates, bullies, confines, pimps or otherwise controls a women by violence is that of a misogynist sadist, and should be considered under the law of justice just as any other violent  crime with special dispensation as a hate crime.

A man who participates by acknowledging said crime without rendering the perpetrator to justice; who promotes alleged crime by seeking to confine the victim to this role under subliminal or overt  threat of loss of Christian or other religious redemption is also guilty.

I’m no lawyer, but that’s what I think. Read what the New Agenda is saying HERE.

By the way, I would say the same for any abusive paring of this nature.

If you need immediate assistance, dial 911.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). 

If you are in an abusive relationship and reading this post, don’t forget THIS.
