The Web of Precariousness by Gaither Stewart

“Chi non lavora, non fa l’amore”

Precariousness looms like a black cloud over the continent of Europe. The fragility of human life and of the life style generations of westerners are accustomed to today rages like a modern plague. Precariousness is a contagious disease. It leaps from worker to worker, from class to class. No wonder that life in our times has never seemed more temporary. Permanence belongs to another age.

(Rome) A popular Italian evergreen from the 1970s depicts a contemporary conundrum for many Europeans: “Chi non lavora, non fa l’amore” go the lyrics.  The woman tells her man, “If you don’t work, there will be no love-making in this house. If you strike and don’t bring home pay, I will strike too. No love-making here!” The worker goes back to his job and strikers beat him up and call him a scab. No sex if he strikes, beatings if he works. He is truly the superfluous and precarious man. His only hope is that the capitalist boss relents and grants the pay increases the union demands and lets love into his house again. But that, he must realize, is highly unlikely.

Say No to Nukes by Ralph Nader

Dandelion Salad

WASHINGTON, March 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/

The following is a statement of Ralph Nader on the 30th anniversary of Three Mile Island:

After thirty years without a firm order, the atomic power companies are pushing their radioactive, costly technology for a comeback on the backs of you, the taxpayers.

The old industry argument is that nuclear powered electricity will reduce our dependence on foreign oil. With only three percent of our electricity coming from burning petroleum, the pro-nuke lobby is now jumping on the global warming bandwagon. Uranium, they argue, does not release greenhouse gases like coal or oil.

What nuclear lobbies ignore is all the coal and oil that needs to be burned to enrich uranium, to transport radioactive wastes with protective highway and rail convoys, and to provide security since they would be a priority target for sabotage.

There are far better, cheaper ways to meet the electricity needs of today’s generation without burdening future generations for centuries with the deadly waste products.

US to embrace flood victims

The US government is bracing itself to care for up to 30,000 people fleeing record flooding in the country’s northern plains.

US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said amid ‘historically unprecedented’ flooding in the Red River valley region between the states of Minnesota and North Dakota, the federal government had readied itself to house and feed 30,000 people for up to a week.

“In the worst case scenario we could be dealing with 80,000 to 100,000 people evacuated,” Napolitano told reporters on Friday, adding the vast majority would likely stay with family or friends.

Napolitano also stressed that any decisions about evacuations will be made at the local level. So far, roughly one-third of Minnesota’s Moorhead city residents have been asked to evacuate their homes.

The former Arizona governor also stated that she had briefed President Obama on the situation this morning and will do so again this evening. ‘He’s watching it very, very carefully’, she said.

Pepe Escobar: Obama held hostage by PPPIP

Dandelion Salad



President Obama’s destiny – more than his foreign policy decisions – will be sealed by how he deals with the US financial crisis, argues Pepe Escobar. The verdict of top economists on Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s new PPPIP has not been auspicious. Some speak of taxpayer rip-off while Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman foresees a “lost decade of zombie banks”. The President has been trying to appease Wall Street while at the same time appeasing America’s anger directed at anything bank bailout-related. On a global level the Chinese have made it known their patience with America’s addiction to debt has limits. The upcoming G-20 meeting in London is bound to discuss more radical steps, while back in the US some already dream of a new saviour, post-Geithner.
