White ribbons

TO THE EDITOR: The target for the White Ribbon Campaign (WRAP) this year is the harm that it causes our citizens.

The campaign will be Oct. 28 through Nov. 11. Please display white ribbons on your lapel, on automobile antennas, door knobs, etc.

Pornography is only the tip of the iceberg. It leads to many other problems associated with sexual perversion. There are several laws against pornography. Many of them specify harm to children, and the solution is prosecution.

Unfortunately, some cases are never reported to authorities, and authorities need to be reminded when problems exist. Awareness, education and protest are the life blood of the campaign. Pornography is rampant on the Internet, TV, movies, music, magazines, video, cell phones etc.

Subscribe to Morality In Media’s newsletter or go to their website. Voice your opinion at www.PornHarms.com. Write letters and e-mails. Write to your president, legislators, advertisers, editors, TV stations, etc.

Petition your U.S. attorneys to enforce the federal obscenity laws. Pray that the United States will shield itself from this cancer in our country.

Election machines

TO THE EDITOR: Tea-Publicans are running out of reversionary, angry white men, necessitating new ways to propagate the economic apartheid allowing the force-feeding of our money to corporations, heavy industry and the military like they’re Strasbourg geese.

Their standard methodology of lies, treachery, corruption and false patriotism remains, but they’ve focused much of their rhetoric of transference (accusing others of the very sins they’re committing) to the co-opting of the electoral process. Theirs is an elitist ideology rooted in racism, classism and maintaining that voting is a privilege, not a right. They understand the power of the majority is the foremost threat to fascistic dominance.

Integral to their plans to privatize, monopolize and politicize electronic voting was, ironically, their theft of the 2000 presidential election. The pursuant outrage fueled passage of the Bush administration’s self-serving legislation mandating the computerization of voting machines, yet providing no effective governmental oversight.
