      The Bush Religious Fundamentalism
      By Beto Segovia
      George W. Bush is the darling off the Christian Right, the religious movement
      concentrated in the 'bible' belt of our country - The Southeast and the
      Midwest. Fundamentalist Christians believe that the Gospel, literally, is the
      'word' of God which must be obeyed absolutely. This group is synonymous with the
      conservative right wing and has taken over the Republican Party platform.
      President Bush is a self proclaimed 'man of faith' who relies on the literal meaning
      of the Gospel. He makes decisions and formulates policies based on his
      religious fundamentalist beliefs which affect all the World.

      COUNTER POINT TO RAOUL LOWERY CONTRERAS
      America Deserves Better
      By Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz, Congressman Silvestre Reyes, Congressman Joe
      Baca
      This past week a group with strong ties to Republican operatives old and new,
      and funded by a Texas millionaire, launched an advertising campaign to
      discredit the service of John Kerry during the Vietnam War, and to question whether
      or not he deserved the medals and Purple Hearts he received there. It was
      another shameful display of the worst kind of politics, and a shameful attack on
      the service record of an American war hero. It was also an insult to all of us
      who have served our country, and to all those who have seen the toll the
      battlefield takes on a soldier.

      COUNTER POINT TO BETO SEGOVIA ON CHAVEZ
      By Antonio Antonetti
      Beto the part that you don't know, is that Chavez already made a deal with
      the Bush administration, by giving the USA a belt of the Orinoco river to be
      exploited at their will, (is one of the biggest weal's of petroleum found in
      Venezuela)…Another thing that you may not be aware is that Chavez who declared
      himself as en enemy of anyone who opposes him, was the same person in charge of
      buying the computers and also did the hiring of the technicians that programmed
      the so call software (USA techs) that did the vote count of the 'recall' in
      Venezuela.

      August 23, 2004 Requiring Health Providers to Question Citizenship and
      Naturalization Status of Patients Is a Matter of Grave Concern
      By Patricia Mejorado
      I am deeply concerned about a proposal put forth by the Centers for Medicare
      and Medicaid Services (CMS), which requires providers to question the
      citizenship and naturalization status of patients using emergency care. The current
      proposal, which implements Section 1011 of the Medicare and Modernization Act
      (MMA), has potentially massive public health implications.

      Hispanic vote could decide the 2004 General Election
      By Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
      With less than three months to go until the elections, Latino voters
      constitute one of the most coveted voting blocs in 2004. While polls show most voters
      have already decided who they will cast their votes for, Hispanics stand out
      as one of the few groups of voters that remain up for grabs.

      Venezuela's Referendum Resolves Leadership Crisis, but Fails to Reconcile the
      Country's Polarized Society/Council on Hemispheric Affairs
      o The overwhelming turnout of Venezuelans on August 15 reaffirms the
      country's democratic process, while providing President Hugo Chávez with a
      reinvigorated populist mandate for his social spending programs.

      The Price of Dissent in Venezuela - Hugo Chávez's thugs celebrate their
      "victory" by shooting my mother.
      BY Thor L. Halvorssen On Monday afternoon, dozens of people assembled in the
      Altamira Plaza, a public square in a residential neighborhood here that has
      come to symbolize nonviolent dissent in Venezuela. The crowd was there to
      question the accuracy of the results that announced a triumph for President Hugo
      Chávez in Sunday's recall referendum.
