White CEO of Republican Think Tank Refuses to Let Black Subordinate Run for Lt. Governor of Illinois
28 Mar 2009
Here's the actual e-mail from Joseph Bast, the CEO of a Republican think tank in Chicago, the Heartland Institute, in which he explains why he has stopped his employee, the former Mayor of Maywood, Ill., an all-black suburb, from running for Lieutenant Governor. This was sent to other Republican insiders yesterday morning.
Note the hypocrisy -- Conner ran for Cook County Assessor in 2006 and netted 250,000 votes. He was an employee of Heartland then too.
Guess these low-lifes at Heartland don't want a black man to be one of the leaders of the Illinois GOP.

27 Mar 2009
presented by The Jamaica Plain Forum

First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist

Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Today's economic crisis is the worst since the Great Depression.
However, as David Korten shows, the steps being taken to address it do nothing to deal with the reality of a failed economic system.

Korten identifies the deeper sources of the failure: Wall Street
institutions that have perfected the art of creating phantom "wealth" without producing anything of real value. Our hope lies not with Wall Street, but with Main Street: in an economy that is locally based, community-oriented, and devoted to creating a better life for all.

In his new book, The Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth, will be available for purchase and signing.
