Mar 4, 2008

What does everyone think about Bush's new plan to open up the Arctic National Wildlife for oil drilling? Sounds disastrous to me!

Blog: US admits economy is in downturn  
"US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson has admitted that the US economy is facing a "sharp decline" at the moment but hoped for a recovery later in the year." -- BBC
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7302068.stm

How long are we going to wait before we can get the government to adapt to the needs of our generation? This economy depends too much on oil and spending, it's time to change.

Alert: Remember the Legacy of MLK!  
Focus:Civil Rights
Action Request:Various
Location:United States
I hope that everyone is enjoying the holiday!  The slogan for this year's holiday is "make it a day on...not a day off!"  So if you get a chance why not try to go out and do something for your community.  If you want to do something but not sure what you can do check out the MLK Day website.  If you don't have time to do something big why not take a few minutes to learn more about Dr. King or maybe find one of his speeches and read it over.  Always remember even the littlest things can make a change!  Have a great day!

Blog: Thoughts on Bush's Economic Plan?  
I was clicking through Care2 when I found this group.  There are some excellent ideas on here I hope everyone gets behind them so they can become successful!  Since all of you have these great ideas I was wondering your thoughts about Bush's new economic aid package. He is calling for a $145 billion package. For more details on the actual plan click here. Bush said that America needs, "a shot in the arm to keep a fundamentally strong economy healthy."  Do you think that this plan will be enough?
