MySQL Multiple Query

I am trying to select data from two separate tables and display everything, not filter based upon information within both tables.

Example, i would like to join these to statements together:

SELECT first,last,email from users;

SELECT first,last,email from contacts;

Any ideas or direction? I have looked into JOINS but doesnt seem to be offering what i'm looking for.

Both tables look very similal why are you storing same data twice?

Which would be best for passing one login username/password to a main script and subscripts, for bypassing the need of the user to sign unto each and every sub script seperately...

Example would be for the main login to pass the active session to all of the multiple scripts in the entire site for automatic accessability without having to login for each new script.

Join, Union or a different process all together?
