SB1070-like Bill Introduced in Texas House

 Fascist/Racist politicians in Tomball are organizing against freedom of movement, and attempting to institutionalize racist policies:

Debbie Riddle, a republican state representative from Tomball has made good on her promises to introduce anti-immigrant legislation in advance of the 2011 legislative session.

This is something to worry about with the new state legislature consisting of 99 Republicans and 51 Democrats, one vote short of a two-thirds majority.

    From GERMANY- 

A review of the impact that the US midterm elections will have on international relations- can a divided America maintain world leadership? Germany's Parliament extended the life of its nuclear power plants by 10 or more years, leading to demonstrations and unrest.

  All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer. 
This program will be aired on Friday evening at 6:30pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < http://www.kzyx.org >
