The New Anti-War Protesters By Joseph Rosenbloom SANDWICH, N.H. — By the end of last week, Maggie Porter’s brick collection totaled 1,099 — and counting. The bricks are meant to depict the coffins that the United States has been transporting to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware since the Iraq War began. Each brick is wrapped in a miniature American flag and labeled with the name of a serviceman or woman who has died in the war. Over Columbus Day weekend this month, (...)

EVERY VOTE WILL COUNT

by Mike Schiller 2 days from today, we will finally get to do something we have not done since 1996... pick a President. It’s been a long wait, but the moment is about to arrive. During the summer of 1999, I was living in a different world than the one I live in now. My life revolved only around my needs, my goals, my ambitions, my desires and my pains. Around that time, a person said to me, "In another year, Bush is going to be President", and I laughed. I said, "This is 1999, not (...)

Mr. President you should not be our commander in chief
By : Patricia Wilson - Sunday October 31, 2004
By Patricia Wilson TOLEDO, Ohio (Reuters) - Democratic challenger John Kerry turned President Bush’s own words into a weapon on Thursday and said it was the Republican incumbent who had jumped to conclusions in Iraq, disqualifying him from being commander in chief. The Massachusetts senator, energized by his beloved Boston Red Sox’s long-awaited win in baseball’s World Series and a joint appearance with rocker Bruce Springsteen, launched a withering attack on Bush over (...)

Letting Down the Troops
By : BOB HERBERT - Saturday October 30, 2004
By BOB HERBERT Not long ago I interviewed a soldier who was paralyzed from injuries he had suffered in a roadside bombing in Iraq. Like so many other wounded soldiers I’ve talked to, he expressed no anger and no bitterness about the difficult hand he’s been dealt as a result of the war. But when I asked this soldier, Eugene Simpson Jr., a 27-year-old staff sergeant from Dale City, Va., whom he had been fighting in Iraq - who, exactly, the enemy was - he looked up from his (...)

It’s Not Just Al Qaqaa
By : Paul Krugman - Saturday October 30, 2004
by Paul Krugman Just in case, the right is already explaining away President Bush’s defeat: it’s all the fault of the "liberal media," particularly The New York Times, which, so the conspiracy theory goes, deliberately timed its report on the looted Al Qaqaa explosives - a report all the more dastardly because it was true - for the week before the election. It’s remarkable that the right-wingers who dominate cable news and talk radio are still complaining about a liberal (...)

Osama’s Election Editorial

By William Rivers Pitt So the bastard is still alive. He isn’t dead of kidney failure or rotting in a cave somewhere in the Hindu Kush. He wasn’t smoked out of his hole, and he in no way appeared to be on the run. The images broadcast on every American television station in the last few hours showed a man apparently in good health, clothed in traditional white and wrapped in a golden robe. His hands were steady and his voice was clear. From all appearances, Osama bin Laden (...)

The Great Delusion Kerrycrats and the War

But if he actually believes that Iraq is "a remarkable success story,’’ it’s downright spooky. He’s already got his persona for Sunday: he’s the mad scientist in the haunted mansion, fiddling with test tubes to force the world to conform to his twisted vision. (...)

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.

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 (...)
