On October 15th, 2008, Kevin Martin, Chairman of the FCC (Federal Communications Commissions), announced a proposal to reform "intercarrier compensation". Major telephone carriers, like AT&T, Verizon & Sprint, are aggressive advocates of this reform as they would reap millions from this proposal. Who will pay for it? You will.

"This could be potentially a billion-dollar giveaway to phone monopolies, paid for out of consumers' pocketbooks," said Chris Murray, an attorney with Consumers Union.

What does this mean to you?

2008/10/24: Wisconsin "Bring Our Guard Home" campaign: organizing materials you can use

WNPJ joins in a statewide effort to challenge the planned 2009 deployment of more than 3,000 Wisconsin Guard members to Iraq, as part of a nationwide campaign now active in more than a dozen states. The national campaign began in Vermont, with legislation challenging the legal basis for the Federal government taking State Guard troops for Iraq on the basis that the reasons Congress gave in 2002 for authorizing the Iraq mission have expired, and Congress has never re-authorized the Iraq occupation on any other basis.
