The murder of a half a million children is a price worth paying?

We want Osama bin Laden brought to justice in the United States ... or do we?

by Mary MacElveen On September 20, 2001, Bush coined the now infamous phrase: "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists" ... that speech was given days after the attacks that befell the United States on 9/11. What a hypocrite Bush was and is, making that statement seeing that he gives safe harbor to a known terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles. On October 6, 1976, Cubana flight 455 took off from Caracas carrying 73 persons including a fencing team. Whether you are speaking of a (...)

By Mary MacElveen Today, someone sent me in an email the following quote made by Cindy Sheehan: ’And about Bill Clinton . . . . You know, I really think he should have been impeached, but not for a blow job. His policies are responsible for killing more Iraqis that George Bush. I don’t understand why to rise to the level of being president of my country one has to be a monster. I used to say that George Bush was defiling the Oval Office, but it’s been held by a long line (...)

Why can’t we have America back? Why is that so hard to do, Lady Liberty?"

de Mary MacElveen A small boy visits the Statue of Liberty while on a class trip. The weather is perfect with not a cloud in the sky. This child looks up to Lady Liberty in awe knowing how many passed her by in order to become citizens of this grand republic. He has the image in his mind of how many of our country’s ancestors came to our shores only to be welcomed by Lady Liberty ... he feels the spirit of freedom as he gazes upon her. At one point, the boy feels a drop of water (...)

To President Bush, Every single day, I pray that we make it through the next three years with you ruling this country. I have serious doubts that this republic will survive. There are so many indications that it will indeed fall. But, I pray anyway. But tonight, my prayers are with Specialist Douglas Barber who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom although, I do not see signs of a free Iraq. Why are my prayers with him?

By Mary MacElveen As each year goes by, I think of the body politics and throw up my hands since I no longer see any candidate worth fighting for.

Of trying to get myself excited about a candidate who can speak in complete sentences. Of (...)

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez Frias did not fire off missiles at innocent women and children

by Mary MacElveen It is so typical of the United States media to sound the alarm as they just did in an editorial: Halt Chavez arms buildup as if the sky is falling. Meanwhile, under this Bush administration, and as reported in a previous article, they allow Russia to rebuild the arms race ... which is far more devastating to the human race. Easy does it, my fellow Americans, you have nothing to fear from President Hugo Chavez ... but you do from Bush. Come to think of it, so does the (...)

by Mary MacElveen US Senator Hillary Rodham-Clinton called the lack of body armor provided to our military personnel as being "unforgivable" this past week and wants an investigation into this matter. While our troops do need that body armor, it is like placing a band-aid on a gaping wound especially when it comes to the use of depleted uranium in Iraq. More on that later... What I find unforgivable, especially after I wrote Blow Back! is where the CIA was used today in taking out the (...)

By: Mary MacElveen A while ago, I had discussions with a number of people through emails where they have suggested that I back down in my criticisms of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton since she voted for the war and perhaps will be the Democratic candidate come 2008. But, if I want to remain truthful with my readers and have credibility, I simply have to stay the course. As an American that has been against this war from the start, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s vote for this war (...)

By Mary MacElveen As each New Year starts many in a “Polly Anna” fashion and with a deep abiding faith in a higher power people believe that it will be better than the last. We celebrate as the seconds pass by where we enter the New Year only for the crushing blow of reality to hit us. We are living through some sort of twilight zone or time loop that has us repeating the same year we left. What we left was one of the bloodiest years yet in Iraq and now it is happening all (...)

How is socialism bad when it helps those who need it most?

by Mary MacElveen There are times where the good news coming from Venezuela is overshadowed by those closely monitoring what weapons have been purchased by the Chavez administration, or how he will interact with Bolivia’s president-elect Evo Morales. In my opinion both are treated by those who oppose President Chavez as if the sky were falling in. The opposition, both in America and in Venezuela, should sit down and take a deep breath. Some are alarmed at President Chavez’ (...)

by Mary MacElveen In answering the terrorists back who attacked the United States on September 11th, 2001, George W. Bush was quoted as saying: "They (the terrorists) hate us for our freedoms." Well, those freedoms can be found in the United States Constitution. Contained within the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the very laws that separate us from those we have always abhorred. By enacting the Patriot Act, we told Osama bin Laden and others just like him, that they won. Those (...)

A right to due process and presumption of innocence until proven guilty...
By : Mary MacElveen - Wednesday December 28, 2005
by Mary MacElveen When I read Howard Kurtz’s article: Bush Presses Editors on Security it reminded me of a CBS movie "Hitler: The Rise of Evil." You may be asking why this movie came to mind. There are many Americans and those around the globe who have compared Bush with Adolph Hitler. One has only to look at the Patriot Act to know this to be true. When Hitler came to power, he pushed for an Enabling Act which, as I have stated before, is strikingly similar and during his (...)

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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

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 (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! 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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

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 (...)
