The GA Remodel

Circumventing derp and top-heavy logistics process in GA.

This is an open discussion on how to circumvent the top heavy logistics process in GA. While the working group model and affinity group model has gone some ways to alleviating the pressure, little outreach and action has taken place.  Please feel free to add to the discussion in the comments section, here's the first sally from Not Me.

There are comments at the bottom of this initial proposal post. Please read through the comments and ring in where you feel it is appropriate. Several other posts will be generated out of this and linked back to this GA remodel post. If necessary, I will generate a page for this conversation.

Jimmy Carter Contributes to the New York Times, Op-Ed gets page A19.

Jimmy Carter Contributes to the New York Times, Op-Ed gets page A19. 

Former President James Earl "Jimmy" Carter contributed a stunning piece, criticizing the United States turn from a "global champion of human rights".  Citing specifics in the past ten years where the US government has chosen power or lucrative business over protecting humanity. 

"Jimmy Carter, the 39th president, is the founder of the Carter Center and the recipient of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize."

"A version of this op-ed appeared in print on June 25, 2012, on page A19 of the New York edition with the headline: A Cruel and Unusual Record." - New York Times

I am willfully and knowingly quoting this entire article directly copying all links in context and citing New York Times copyright.  I have a minuscule readership in comparison to the NYT, and with Carters former presidency, this article is probably going to garner some attention anyway, even a tiny blog like mine can help with that. I understand that NYT cannot give preferential treatmemt to this article, especially considering it is an Op-Ed piece. The neato thing about the internet is, I can.

Dissent isn't limited to the "radical left" or the "privileged academic", across the board people are speaking out against these human rights atrocities.  You can click through to "A Cruel and Unusual Record" on the New York Times website and proceed no further if you have an issue with reading the exact same thing here.

"Until today, the governor has not been held accountable for his lack of action on anti-immigrant initiatives- we've taken care of them. Now, the ownership is on him. Let's make sure we hold him accountable to the people he has sworn to protect."
