I have a few articles for you today that should be brought to the attention of the world outside of China. The fight for civil rights is alive and well in China, but we hear little of this.

Chinese Rights Lawyer Beaten, Staging Hunger Strike in Prison.
December 28, 2007.

Now onto some other links:

There are many issues in this post that need broader attention. Slavery? Rape? Permanent most favored nation??? I think NOT!

I may not write another open trackback tomorrow, but we’ll see. I have to catch up with my military posts, so maybe I will make a post out them. I’ll give you the title and a little about the article. That’s if I do it. I’m still waiting for that phone call from across this land mass…so have a Happy New Year, I pray for many blessings to all of you, and post what you will. Just make sure you add a link back to me and include me in your post. Also, no porn. This is Rosemary signing off for now.
