Child training from a biblical point of view requires spanking for purposes of correction (Prov. 13:24, Prov. 22:15, Prov. 23:13).
Assemblywoman Lieber represents the 22nd Assembly district, so if you live there please call in and express your opinion on this idea. Cities in her district include: Santa Clara, Mountain View, Santa Clara, San Jose, and Sunnyvale. Please be polite when calling in. Let your legislator know how you feel about this issue and ask her not to propose such legislation.
If you do not live in in Lieber's district you can still take action. Call your legislators and ask them to vote against this legislation if it ever comes up. You can find out who your legislators are here. Remember that your legislators represent YOU. They want to hear what you have to say. They know that each call or letter they get on a subject represents about 1,000 others who hold the same view so contact your legislator.

The Governor isn't even considering whether such a move is the right thing to do or not. Apparently he doesn't believe in personal responsibility or personal rights.
The Washington Post also has published the story. According to the Post Schwarzenegger wants to get input from everyone.
"My solution is that everyone in California must have insurance," said Schwarzenegger, who was inaugurated to a second term on Friday after time in the hospital to repair a broken leg. "If you can't afford it, the state will help you buy it, but you must be insured."
"My proposal is a beginning," he said. "Everything will be on the table and I want to hear from everyone. If we have the will -- and I believe that we do -- we can heal our broken system."
The NY Times quoted him as saying:
''I don't think it is a question or a debate if they ought to be covered. ... The federal courts have made that decision -- that no one can be turned away,'' Schwarzenegger said. ''The question really isn't to treat them or not to treat them. The question really is how can you treat them in the most cost-effective way.''

Do you drive a car? If you answer yes, then most likely you buy gasoline, the price of which is easily affected by a pipe closure such as this one.
The European Union has demanded that Russia restore the flow of oil through the pipeline.
It isn't exactly clear at this point whether Russia's claim is true or not. The move could be due to the tariff recently imposed on Russian oil by Belarus.
No matter what the cause we can expect to see oil prices here to go up.

Foreign Affairs recently published an article pointing out how Cuba has not essentially changed since Castro turned over power to his brother. Does this indicate, in any respect, how Cuba will be operated when Castro is dead and gone (assuming that he isn't already)? I believe it does.

yet he did his duty
No one voted for him
but he held the nation together
After he left he did as he should
He gave his help when asked
He remained quiet otherwise
The world was not depressed with his ramblings
He shall never again breathe
But his legacy lives on
His life as an example
His character as a model
Much can we learn from such a man
Yet one question still ask we can
Where will he spend eternity?
All good done, all deeds that shine
Had he ever done a crime?
