Publisher’s note: John Conyers introduced this right after the illegal wiretapping revelations I think that many more congresspeople would sign on if the impeachment resolution was about the illegal wiretapping only. The case for impeachment over illegal wiretapping is cut and dry. Bush admitted to breaking the law on national TV and has said he will continue to do so. When this information came to light, everyone was in an uproar and the momentum was so moving toward immediate (...)

by Thom Hartmann Carl loved books and loved history and, after spending two years in the army as part of the American occupation forces in Japan immediately after World War II, was hoping to graduate from college and teach history, perhaps even at the university level if he could hang on to the GI Bill and his day job in a camera store long enough to get his Ph.D. It was 1950, and he’d been married just a few months, when the surprise came that forced him to drop out of college: his (...)

The U.S. gulag prison system: Shame of the nation and crime against humanity by Stephen Lendman Photos: © Jacob Holdt 2004 No, not the gulag you think, outrageous as it is. I’m referring to the U.S. prison system that’s with no exaggeration about as shockingly abusive as the gulag abroad. It qualifies for that label by its size alone - more than 2.1 million as of June 2004 and growing larger by about 900 new inmates every week. Blacks, mostly poor and disadvantaged, (...)

At 64 percent, Americans’ support for the death penalty is 20 percent higher than Canada and 40 percent higher than Australia. Nonetheless, it is at its lowest level in 27 years and is lowest among youth, indicating that a shift may be in (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

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.

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.

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 (...)
