The Bush Administration's Data Mining Threatens Democracy

The current administration's "Unitary Executive Theory" of executive power and its warrantless surveillance policies are a danger to the rule of law and a democratic society.

Sheehan Labels Bush’s White House: “A Crime Scene!”

On May 18, 2006, activists attempted to deliver a “Don't Attack Iran” Petition, which was signed by over 43,000 individuals, to a White House official. The bureaucrat refused to accept it, despite the fact that the Right to Petition the government for a redress of grievances is a right older than the Constitution and a cornerstone of the First Amendment. A defiant Cindy Sheehan then labeled George W. Bush’s White House: “A Crime Scene!”

Headquarters Opens at the Contemporary Museum

The Contemporary Museum in downtown Baltimore is hosting a "Headquarters" project that looks at the U.S. prison system, how it has evolved, and how it is interlinked with urban blight. Unlike traditional museum exhibits that prioritize paintings and photographs, this museum "project" features artwork, a weekly Thursday night discussion, and attempts at artistic intervention into everyday life.

BGE 72 Percent Rate Hike Set to Stand [Updated]

While the 72 percent will stand, it will be phased-in with a first 19 percent hike in July 2006. That will be followed by a 25 percent hike in June 2007, and another hike in January 2008, all to equal a total 72 percent rate increase. With Maryland Governor Bob Erhlich backpeddling from his vow to call a special session, it looks unlikely a reduction will occur.

Commentary :: War in Iraq

Breaking the Mikulski Code!

Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD) voted against the Iraqi War, but she has consistently voted to fund it. She poses as a liberal, but on the Iraqi conflict, there is little or no difference between her complicity in that wrong and that of VP Dick Cheney. He was recently booed at a baseball game. When will the people of Maryland begin booing her? Another funding for the Iraqi War vote is coming up in late April. Will Mikulski again support the Bush-Cheney Gang?

Paul Wolfowitz’s Heart of Darkness

Now, War Hawks within the Bush-Cheney Gang are planning a First-Strike against Iran. It may come just before the Nov. midterm elections. The Neocon Paul Wolfowitz concocted the notion of a Pre-emptive War. His target, in 2003, was Iraq. Every time I hear Wolfowitz’s name mentioned, I curse him for all the deaths and suffering that his scheme has caused to the peoples of that unfortunate country, our brave troops and to our dwindling treasury.
