       The Terminator Says Hasta La Vista Baby to 75 Year Old

Calif. Governor Has No Mercy for Inmate
I must terminate you now
By DAVID KRAVETS Associated Press Writer
SAN FRANCISCO - California's oldest death row inmate — a 75-year-old who is legally blind and nearly deaf — is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to do something it has never done before: block an execution because of the condemned man's advanced age and infirmity.

Gov.Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday denied Allen clemency. Barring a last-minute reprieve by the courts, the governor's decision means Allen will become the second-oldest person put to death since the U.S. Supreme Court allowed capital punishment to resume in 1976.

       Boycott Bush

From Roland R.
A consumer campaign to boycott Bush's biggest funders

This website was established on April 12th 2001 by Ethical Consumer magazine, following the rejection by President Bush of the Kyoto Agreement on global warming. Since that date, he has gone on to offend many more people around the world by his illegal invasion of Iraq and other regressive steps such as opposing weapons proliferation treaties.
What we want
On this website we call on consumers who oppose any or all of Bush's activities to boycott the brands of his biggest corporate funders until they:
publicly call on him to support the Kyoto protocol, and

cease all political funding of the current administration until he does so.
