News You Need To Know

Wade Rathke, who founded ACORN, announced on his blog that ACORN International has officially changed its name to “Community Organizations International.” Too much bad press and 14 lawsuits is making it difficult for them to do business - so they are hoping a name change will provide cover for them..... They are also dismantling a New Orleans non-profit named Citizen's Consulting Inc. which is connected to several of over 200 ACORN affiliates. ACORN currently works in 12 countries.

Stating that SPEED is needed in order to pass the energy and health care bills, Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats have cut off debate regarding the group
ACORN and it's wide-ranging possible violations of the law..... they r

dice on a top priority this week, bringing a contentious
climate-change bill to the floor despite strong misgivings
from her rank-and-file and an outspoken chairman who
remains a major impediment. The speaker filed the
legislation with the Rules Committee on Monday night,
her spokesman said, even though its authors, Energy
and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman
(D-Calif.) and Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey, are still
working out a deal. [I'm sure this will be presented as a
dire emergency which needs to be addressed NOW,
along with everything else they are attempting in their
desire to "never let a serious crisis go to waste". We can
watch the farmers, among others, try to keep this from

On the Global Warming front, Thursday was the 14th
consecutive day in Arizona to stay below 100 degrees,

Canada, where government provides health care for all of its citizens, patients must
wait an average of 7 weeks for treatment of life-threatening cancer, and 9 hours for
emergency room care.
