Increasing numbers of Afghans, Yemenis and Somalis live like this. But we don't think about them, or if we do, we justify their inconvenience or worse for the sake of our national security. It's an utterly myopic attitude to adopt. -- James Jeffrey's "View From the Wreckage"

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has rejected a bid by a coalition of civil and immigrants rights activists to prevent police from enforcing an Arizona provision that is at the heart of the fierce national debate over immigration.

for now.  A full appeal hearing before the Second Circuit is set for September 28th.

Will President Obama get 4 more years to finish his war on the Constitution? Not if we can help it.

When Obama's former teacher and senior policy advisor, UC Berkeley Law School Dean Christopher Edley presented a "report card" on the president's performance at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, World Can't Wait's response team was there to protest broken promises and continuation of the criminal actions of the Bush regime.

This call addressed an enormous need. Who will refuse to be silent when Bradley Manning faces life in prison for giving the people the truth about the crimes of our government - while the war criminals themselves walk free? Whose hearts will lift at seeing a wave of actions refusing to go along with the "lesser of two evils" and all its hellish wars and other crimes?
