We invite you to join United for Peace and Justice to learn about and discuss issues in three major areas...

The domestic consequences of war:
-- Building a free and open society based on respect for democracy, civil liberties, and civil rights. How can we reverse the tide of our eroding rights and stop the attacks on people from the Middle East and other immigrant groups?
-- Reordering US spending priorities that favor tax cuts for the rich and increased spending on war toward more spending for education, health care, and needed social programs. How can we support the real needs of veterans while cutting wasteful military spending to remedy our state and local budget crises and save critical social programs?

A U.S. occupation of Iraq:
-- The impacts of the war on food supplies, water, and electricity for the people of Iraq. How can we build solidarity and support for an Iraq-led redevelopment effort even after the cameras are gone?
-- How the "second invasion" of Iraq is underway by profit-seeking U.S. corporations.

U.S. Empire
-- Building a safer world through an alternative foreign policy based on international law, cooperation, and economic & social justice.
-- Reversing the Bush doctrine of "preemptive war," to prevent attacks on the people of Syria, Iran, North Korea, or Cuba.
-- The need for a rapid shift to clean, renewable energy sources

but I shouldn't assume that all music listeners satellite internet are like me. What happens when I get an anti-rap dish network person who is assaulted by "Bombs Over Baghdad" mengumalogy at volume 10? Still, it's something to think directv about. I'm not sure if I will follow through loan with my urge or not. If I do, it must of satellite tv course be done relentlessly. I can relate, mortgage as I feel myself distancing myself from this online poker tedium, far more interested in the shifting online casino time signatures in the song I'm listening
