Stability of Mentally Ill Shaken By Medicare Drug Plan Problems
By : Susan Levine - Saturday February 11, 2006
Some Prescription Denials Have Heightened Distress By Susan Levine Even among the incident reports crossing Craig Knoll’s desk weekly now, this one stood out: A 43-year-old client of Knoll’s mental health agency, a man who suffers from bipolar disorder, had come from his pharmacy frustrated to the point of meltdown. There were snags in his new Medicare drug plan. Of his four medicines, it would fill only two. "I’m not going to take any of them anymore," he yelled, (...)

Corrupt Congress: Virtually all of the $40 Billion in spending cuts affect the Poor and Young
By : USA Today - Saturday January 28, 2006
A new year brings new hope. And in this year it would be nice to see in Washington a new commitment to fiscal restraint and a resolve to bequeath a solvent government and robust economy to future generations. To listen to many Republican lawmakers, a move in that direction is underway. In the final hours before it wrapped up on Dec. 21, the Senate approved a five-year, $40 billion deficit reduction package. The measure, set to pass the House of Representatives early this year, would cut (...)

Pesticide Tests on Humans Approved by EPA
By : notepad - Wednesday January 25, 2006
Pesticide Tests on Humans Approved by EPA In yet another example of how America’s industrial giants together with Federal Health officials "protect" the safety and health of its citizens, the EPA has now determined guidelines which will allow testing of insect poisons on humans too. Shocking? - not really - especially considering how dispensation of various toxins to people has been happening for quite some time in the U.S. Consider the carcinogen Aspartame - although banned in (...)

By Philip Shishkin in Faizabad, Afghanistan, and David Crawford in Berlin, The Wall Street Journal The suspicious whirring of a motor came from somewhere in the dark skies above the river separating Northern Afghanistan from Tajikistan. Tajik border guards say they shouted warnings and then opened fire. What fell out of the sky was a motorized parachute carrying 18 kilograms of heroin. It was a small drop in a mighty flood of Afghan heroin that is reshaping the world drug market. Once (...)

EVO MORALES: WHITE MAN, YOU ONLY HAVE YOURSELVES TO BLAME

This month, cocaleros (coca farmers) champion Evo Morales was victorious in Bolivia’s presidential elections, with 51% of the vote. His triumph at the polls is a direct challenge to the US’s anti-narcotics campaign in the region, with Morales defending the production of the coca leaf - which, when refined, produces cocaine. Cocaine: the white man’s invention The coca leaf is traditionally chewed by the indigenous people of Bolivia to alleviate altitude sickness, a (...)

Of course, the pharmaceutical giants would have us believe it’s coincidental that their reps look like runway (...)

Political Ponerology: A Science on The Nature of Evil adjusted for Political Purposes
By : Aurora - Friday December 30, 2005
Polish Psychologist, Andrew M. Lobaczewski, who lived through the Nazi and Communist occupation of Poland, made a pact with fellow researchers to study the nature of the evil that had fallen on their society. They called the new science “Ponerology” which the dictionary defines: n. division of theology dealing with evil; theological doctrine of wickedness or evil; from the Greek: poneros -> evil’. But Dr. Lobaczewski was not proposing a “theological” study, (...)

Flashback: Judge Halts Mandatory Anthrax Shots- Troops shouldn’t be "Guinea Pigs"

WASHINGTON - A federal judge yesterday ordered the Pentagon to stop administering an anthrax vaccine to service members without their consent, ruling that defense officials cannot require troops to "serve as guinea pigs for experimental drugs." In blocking mandatory anthrax inoculations until a full trial can be held on the matter, U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan agreed with the contention by six unnamed Defense Department plaintiffs. They say the anthrax vaccine is an experimental (...)

CHICAGO, Dec. 7 (UPI) — It’s a far piece from the horse-and-buggies of Lancaster County, Pa., to the cars and freeways of Cook County, Ill. But thousands of children cared for by Homefirst Health Services in metropolitan Chicago have at least two things in common with thousands of Amish children in rural Lancaster: They have never been vaccinated. And they don’t have autism. "We have a fairly large practice. We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we’ve taken (...)

The Pentagon never told Congress about more than 20,000 hospitalizations involving troops who’d taken the anthrax vaccine, despite repeated promises that such cases would be publicly disclosed. Instead, a parade of generals and Defense Department officials told Congress and the public that fewer than 100 people were hospitalized or became seriously ill after receiving the shot from 1998 through 2000. They also showed Congress written policies that required public reports to be filed (...)

WORLD AIDS DAY: How Many Millions More Will Die?

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.

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 (...)
