All Our Problems - Migrants To Blame: Pro-Migrant SanctuarySphere
No To Borders and Binaries provides a good breakdown of the financial meltdown. May have been predicting this day for some time and as we all know there's been no oversight. Even after the devastating collapse of Enron, and other companies, the government's done nothing to protect the American people from the greed of corporations who seem to make money out of thin air. No need to plant a tree in the back yard when you can just wiggle your nose.
We're getting closer to the date where we choose our next president even if McCain drops out of the race to help fix things a government he's been a part of for 26 years has created. Check out XP's Get Out And Vote Message as well as Citizen Orange's.
Did McCain really suspend his campaign? Liza at Culture Kitchen points out that he never really did.

Personally I see biometric ID cards as a benefit to no one other than those who wish to control. How in a free society can one allow themselves to be controlled in such a way? If I, in my innocence, am detained at an airport will those other thousand people in my vicinity applaud that control of me and the power that calls me into question? Britain is going to start issuing these cards to foreign nationals. Let's all hop on the slippery slope.
As XP pointed out previously it's the immigrants that will rebuild after Ike. While many have acid comments about the undocumented migrant they certainly have no problem bringing them into their employ. When things have to get done you call on those that are strong and willing.
If you haven't signed the petition for Ana Romero please take a few moments and do so now.
It's really terrible that acts such as genital mutilation still happen in the world, but one woman continues to fight for asylum in the US. Seems that they wanted to deny her request because she had already gone through this horrendous procedure. That's obviously a ridiculous reason to send her back and Mukasey agreed stating that this act can be repeated more than once.
Nuestra Voice points to a group of Colorado religious leaders who are asking for a respectful dialogue on immigration.
