BUSH BULL-HEADED WARMONGER
By : Peter Fredson - Thursday January 11, 2007
1 comment
Bush Bull-Headed Warmonger By Peter Fredson January 11, 2007 Last night it was the old George W. Bush that we have come to know and despise. It was the obdurate, head-like-cement, aggressive, unrepentant Bush that loves to kill Muslims for his shrinking Dominionist and Reconstructionist Fundamentalist base. He still thinks that some God advised him to go head with killing rag-heads. And, to leave no one out, Barney and Laura still believe in him Bush had a stroke of genius in his (...)

THE NEW NEW BUSH PLAN

The New Bush Plan By Peter Fredson January 10, 2007 Ever since the elections of November 2006, George Bush has struggled against reality by immersing himself in a “listening” frenzy with his ears turned only toward advice coinciding with his own flawed judgment. Now, it seems he has come up with a plan to ensure victory and success in Iraq. From all indications he is going to let the Iraqis take the blame. That is, provided the Iraqis are grateful to Bush and his neocons (...)

SADDAM FACED DEATH WITH DIGNITY

Saddam Faced Death with Dignity By Peter Fredson December 30, 2006 One of the changing pretexts for invading Iraq is over. Saddam Hussein was hanged today. The show trial, arranged and orchestrated by the Bush people, carefully manipulated, carefully coached, is now history. Saddam was dignified to the end. We wonder if Bush and Cheney will face the gallows with equal equanimity, or if they will squeal like pigs when their end comes. The pretext that Saddam was evil and therefore had to (...)

Mork from Ork and his first Christmas experience. Posted by Peter Fredson December 23, 2006 I found this on an old computer, without attribution, and thought you might like to see it at this season. If you think the holidays are confusing, just read this: "Mork calling Orson. Mork calling Orson...Hello, Orson?

EASY POP QUIZ By Peter Fredson December 22, 2006 An amusing test of American intelligence or gullibility. 1. Which nation of the world poses the greatest threat to the rest of the world? 2. Which nation of the world has declared that it will preemptively and unilaterally attack any county that its President believes poses some “intention” to some future attack? 3. Which nation of the world has a President whose lawyers have assured him that he is above the law, can take (...)

ATROCIOUS SLAVE LABOR AT XMAS

SLAVE LABOR FOR XMAS By Peter Fredson December 17, 2006 We speak of the slave-type labor performed for Neocon corporations in Latin America or China, but has anyone thought of the slave-type labor performed by Santa’s Elves? This is the time of year when we should ask such questions for humanitarian reasons. Evidently they work 18 hours a day, all year. Do they get any vacations? Paid? Sick Leave? Pensions? Health Care? Do they have any ombudsman, lawyers? Where can they go to (...)

SOME SIMPLE QUESTIONS TO ASK BUSH

SOME SIMPLE QUESTIONS By Peter Fredson December 8, 2006 I still have some simple questions to help untangle a complicated web of misdirection, misinformation, deception, propaganda, and untruths that were spun by the disastrous Bush administration. Although several administration-controlled “investigations” brought out some of the architecture of this web, I am not at all satisfied that we got at any simple truth. We need more “Deep Throats”, a few courageous (...)

WHO TOOK US TO WAR? By Peter Fredson December 3, 2006 Who started the war with Iraq? No, not with Afghanistan, but with Iraq. Did Bush start it, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, or a combination of Leo Straussian collegian chicken hawks, corporate billionaires, and televangelists? Certainly it took some sort of concerted Neocon effort that decided that invading Iraq was good for our country. After Bush was selected as President he did almost nothing but go on vacation. But we know that the (...)

Pentagon Cover-Up of Army Base Disaster By Peter Fredson November 4, 2006 I have searched all the major newspapers in vain for the greatest Iraqi disaster this year. There seems to be a massive cover-up of hundreds of American dead, not to mention many Iraqis. This October Surprise may prove to be the undoing of Secretary Rumsfeld, if not George Bush. I found the story on several blogs by surfing the Internet. The original story was written by Brian Harring on this link: (...)

Is Air Force One Public Property? By Peter Fredson November 3, 2006 For several days I have watched “Air Force One”, a beautiful blue plane, land and saw George Bush step out onto campaign platforms. The plane forms an impressive backdrop for a sleazy partisan effort. I wondered how the costs of transporting Bush and his people, (staff, security, agents, etc.) were passed on to the taxpayer or if any were reimbursed by Republicans to the Treasury. I wondered if this (...)

SHOE SALESMAN SETS OFF CRAZY CHAIN OF EVENTS

SHOE SALESMAN SETS OFF CRAZY CHAIN OF EVENTS By Peter Fredson October 28, 2006 An item from WFMY News 2 - Greensboro, North Carolina caught my attention. It seems that a shoe salesman knocked on a door around 8:00 p.m. when 4 men appeared, pulled him into the house and then locked him in a closet. The men then went outside to steal their victim’s car, but the victim kicked the closet door down and smashed his car window with a lamp. The car-jackers evidently startled and drove (...)

Why? Because a woman owns the weapon of seduction. It’s she who takes off her clothes, shortens them, flirts, puts on (...)

An Analysis of the U.N. speech of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Part One By Peter Fredson September 26, 2006 It was difficult to find the text of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Address to the United Nations on September 19th, 2006. Most of the sycophant media of the U.S. did not see fit to print it, but limited any mention to ridiculing or trivializing it. The New York Times printed all of the Bush rhetoric but somehow could not find room for that of Ahadinejad. I found it on the (...)

Part Two By Peter Fredson September 23, 2006 Continuing with quotes from President Hugo Chavez and an examination of his statements. “He (Bush) spoke to the people of Lebanon. Many of you, he said, have seen how your homes and communities were caught in the crossfire. How cynical can you get? What a capacity to lie shamefacedly. The bombs in Beirut with millimetric precision?” “This is crossfire? He’s thinking of a western, (...)

Did Hugo Chavez Speak Truth Or Lies? PART ONE By Peter Fredson September 22, 2006 The President of Venezuela addressed the U.N. Assembly this week. His unkind references to the President of the United States, George W. Bush, made many people uncomfortable, electing a huge variety of boorish, loutish, obscene, and uncomplimentary remarks. I have examined the Chavez speech in detail, and find that much of what was criticized was actually warranted. If we leave out the jingoistic and (...)

The Crocodile Man By Peter Fredson September 4, 2006 It is a sad day for Australia. Steve Irwin, “The Crocodile Man” is dead. He was killed accidentally when swimming over a sting-ray and its barb went into Steve. He died shortly thereafter. We were astonished that, after all the daring-do escapades with dangerous wild animals, Steve was not invincible. He handled the most poisonous snakes on this planet with amazing aplomb.

WATCHING THE NEOCONS SQUIRM By Peter Fredson September 2, 2006 For the entire Bush takeover of our country I have watched and listened to his many speeches. Lately they have increased dramatically in number. But they are all the same speech. He repeats identical phrases. How many times has he referred to 9/11? Has anyone kept count? And how many times has he mentioned Democracy, Liberty, Sovereignty, and Freedom? What is more to the point is his Orwellian double-think application of (...)

You’ve continually cited the elections, the new government, its progress in Iraq, and yet the violence has gotten worse in certain areas. You’ve had to go to Baghdad again. Is it not time for a new strategy? And if not, why not?” President: “You’ve covered the Pentagon, you (...)

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

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 (...)

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. 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 (...)
