Arkansas' two senators joined with the majority of Republicans to vote "yes" to CAFTA, the so-called "Free Trade of the Americas".

Unions and some U.S. Industries were oppossed to the treaty. Most big business interests were in favor of it.

A "yes" vote was a vote to pass the legislation and a "no" vote was a vote to defeat it.

Voting "yes" were 10 Democrats, 43 Republicans and one independent. In other words, only eight other Senate democrats joined our two in voting for the agreement.

Voting "no" were 33 Democrats and 12 Republicans.

Is CAFTA a good idea? Why did Pryor and Lincoln mostly vote with Republicans on this issue?

Just heard on the radio, LULAC OPPOSSES CAFTA. The AFLCIO was pissed off and got the upper hand. I also have a story about my visit to LULAC on my own blog.

Kudos to our two lefty Senators for supporting CAFTA. You folks who think we can shut out the world with tariffs and subsidies live in a century that's past. Free trade is our only hope for the future. Get over it.

You assume that CAFTA and NAFTA represent free trade just because its supporters call it that.

CAFTA and NAFTA represent managed trade, with each document running thousands of pages. Unelected government boards pick winners and losers, not the free market.

Not that I am a big subsidy fan, and I think tariffs should only be used on countries that don't engage in massive cost shifting (that would not represent true free market decisions anyway).

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
