Draft Creep PDF Print E-mail
Justice News
Wednesday, 21 January 2004 03:39
David Wiggins: Say hello to "draft creep." Remember "bracket creep(1)," AKA the "sneaky tax increase," whereby inflation and income growth forces people into progressively higher tax brackets? Bracket creep is a way for the government to raise taxes without seeming  to be raising taxes. There is no congressional debate, and no new law is passed for the President to sign. Taxes just go up. Similarly, draft creep is a way for the government to initiate the draft without seeming to initiate the draft.

Happy New Year.. from Baghdad PDF Print E-mail

An excerpt from the diary of a young Iraqi woman... Monday, January 05, 2004. Happy New Year... So this is 2004. Not surprisingly, it feels much like 2003... While many people consider 2003 a 'year', for us it has felt more like a decade. We started the year preparing for war. While the rest of the world was making a list of resolutions, we were making lists of necessary items for the coming battle. We spent the first two and a half months of 2003 taping windows, securing homes, stocking up o­n food, water and medication, digging wells and wondering if we would make it through the year.

I just got off the phone with John Graham, who is in very good spirits and so pleased to hear of the support he is receiving from all over the world. He asked me to tell you that he loves you all for your concern and your contributions to his situation. Graham's freedom fund have been very generous, coming from all parts of the globe. We are now about half-way towards the $25,000 bail required for John's release.
