February 15th, 2003: Little did we know
By : Mary MacElveen - Friday November 3, 2006
February 15th, 2003: Little did we know By Mary MacElveen November 3, 2006 On February 15th, 2003, the world came together to tell Bush that we did not support his invasion of Iraq, but little did we know at that time the extent of the damage that would be done. We, who protested this war, never foresaw that over 2,800 U.S. soldiers would be lost to us forever. Never did we foresee that 655,000 innocent Iraqis would be killed. I use that figure of 655,000 based upon the publication (...)

As Democrats, we must not fear in speaking of God By Mary MacElveen November 3, 2006 If we are to believe that we live in a country based upon Christian values in which Bush and those like him wear God on their sleeve, as evident with the war in Iraq, in which Bush and the Republicans have broken some of the Ten Commandments. We must face up to the fact; we have not been living up to our Christian values. The reason why I only mention Christianity is because most that have led this (...)

What character has the GOP shown us? Stick with Alan Hevesi in the NY State Comptrollers race By Mary MacElveen November 2, 2006 In his latest column, Lawrence C. Levy of Newsday calls upon the Democrats to show character when it comes to whom they shall vote for in the NY State Comptroller race. In his column, he writes “But Democrats must show character and courage. Character, to look beyond party labels and cut loose a guy they have supported for years. And courage, because a (...)

Why should Americans vote Republican? By Mary MacElveen November 1, 2006 In hopes that this column will reach those who are more inclined to vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections, I want to ask you flat out, why should any voter even entertain voting Republican? What hope have your candidates given to the American people as many continue to suffer from despair? As many Americans grow bone weary of the war in Iraq and are beginning to wise up, this war has only delivered (...)

For the NY State Comptroller Race equate Callahan with Enron By Mary MacElveen October 30, 2006 In the race for New York State Comptroller which pits the Democrat incumbent Alan Hevesi against his Republican challenger, Chris Callahan to those who are vested in the New York State retirement fund, I want you to look at Callahan and think Enron. Yes, Callahan wants to give you the freedom to invest your retirement in whichever way you so choose, in my opinion that is gambling with your (...)

Italo Zanzi, acts like waving a magic wand will solve illegal immigration By Mary MacElveen October 29, 2006 Not every issue is black and white as evident in this Italo Zanzi for congress campaign commercial especially when it says that Zanzi has been fighting this issue for months. In this complex issue concerning illegal immigration, this is when experience does matter. Zanzi acts like he can wave a magic wand and the issue will be solved. The commercial also states that he just (...)

To Peter King and Joe Lieberman: Why hasn’t Osama bin Laden been captured? By Mary MacElveen October 24, 2006 As many viewed Keith Olbermann’s blistering on-air commentary of the GOP’s use of an ad to instill fear amongst the ‘gullible’ electorate using both pictures and words from Osama bin Laden, Mr. Olbermann was right to exhibit such outrage in targeting the Republican Party. Mr. Olbermann was correct to target both Bush and Cheney in the use of this ad. (...)

Congressman, Tim Bishop is a man that can be trusted and is the ‘real deal’ By Mary MacElveen October 23, 2006 I have been writing now since the 2000 presidential election which pitted Al Gore against George W.

Shortly after his discovery of this New World, the Europeans came... What you may not know of this day is that on October 9, 1967, Che Guevara was executed (...)

The GOP Campaign: “There’s a sucker born every minute and two to take him” By Mary MacElveen October 22, 2006 In the month of October as cited in this article "U.S. sees deadliest month in ’06 in Iraq" we have lost 78 American troops. We depend upon our soldiers to be the front line of our national security. With this astounding number lost to our collective national security under the Bush/Cheney/GOP led government, are you feeling secure? I think of our (...)

Both Peter King and Joe Lieberman must be forced to answer to these war crimes By Mary MacElveen October 21, 2006 In the closing days before these midterm elections, I have two politicians in my sights. One is Congressman Peter King (R 3rd Cong. Dist., NY) and the other is Senator Joe Lieberman (D (?) of Conn.) for their unbridled support of Bush and the whole-sale slaughter of innocent Iraqis. I recently wrote in a previous column for VHeadline.com As a result this horrifying news (...)

by Mary MacElveen When President Chavez called Bush "the Devil" he was lambasted for making that comment, but I read this comment from Bush’s Press Secretary, Tony Snow concerning Mark Foley’s criminal actions "Yes, look, I hate to tell you, but it’s not always pretty up there on Capitol Hill. And there have been other scandals, as you know, that have been more than simply naughty emails." To call the exchange of emails between a former congressman and a minor page is (...)

The United States of America: Born July 4th, 1776 - Died October 17th, 2006 By Mary MacElveen October 17th, 2006 In light of a despot signing ‘The Military Commissions Act of 2006’ into law, it was the day America died. America was born on July 4th, 1976 and died on October 17th, 2006. For a democracy, she died a perilous death at the young age of 230 years old. For six long years she screamed out in pain and while there were some protests, a great majority just stood by (...)

by Mary MacElveen As I think of the negative reactions coming from politicians within the United States in regards to President Chavez’ speech to the general assembly at the United Nations, a deeper psychology took place. It is not so much the man in Bush that Rangel, Pataki and Pelosi were protecting, but the institution itself. Most likely all three during these past six years have had their own negative thoughts concerning Bush and rightfully so. But, after September 11, 2001, (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
