Special thanks goes out to The Arrogant Worms (website: http://www.arrogant-worms.com/) for the outro music, sampling from "Don't Go Into Politics." Thanks guys! Intro and a bit about our surprise wintry weather in Iowa and Ontario News You May Have Missed - a plethora of newsy bits that flew under the NORAD radar. Issue One -- Did someone page Dennis Hastert or is that a new Congress in your pocket? Fallout shelters for Republicans and what might happen in November. Issue Two -- Gagging Rona Ambrose or the Cons' noxious plan to derail Kyoto. Bush frowns, Harper jumps, in Alberta the oil boys celebrate. Will the world mourn? Where's Jack Layton? Issue Three -- Dear (demented) Leader has the bomb. 'You know, the bomb Dmitry. Remember we talked about what we would do if something went wrong with the bomb. . . ?' Will now Kim Jong Il has the bomb and is it worth fighting in the war room about? Or a thankful national security diversion for the GOP from the Foley mess? We discuss.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
