SOTU 2006 Comments By Peter Fredson February 2, 2006 The lengthy speech of G.W.Bush at the SOTU met all of my expectations. I expected Bush to mention 9/11 and was not mistaken. I expected many other words and phrases designed to arouse emotions and was not mistaken. Terrah, Iraq, Stay the Course, God, etc. all were applauded by the sycophant gathering. I have dissected some of Bush’s speeches and found many phrases to be old friends. Bush promises have previously been promised (...)

The Legacy of G. W. Bush 3 By Peter Fredson January 31, 2006 Part Three: GEORGE W. BUSH: SAINT OR SINNER? G. W. Bush has a large base of Christian fundamentalists including many thousands of trained influential evangelists, parsons, ministers, priests, faith-healers, etc. who are expert in dealing with emotive issues, fantasy scenarios, and persistent indoctrination. They have an absolutist view of their ideology which allows them to show disdain for all other beliefs, dogma, practices (...)

The Legacy of G. W. Bush 2 By Peter Fredson January 29, 2006 Part Two: GEORGE W. BUSH AND COMPASSION I have studied the mannerisms, verbalizations and actions of GWB for some years. I now realize that nothing is what it seems to be. GWB may never have studied George Orwell, but he has mastered the arts of Double-Think (holding two separate contradictory thoughts at the same time) and of NewSpeak (in which words rarely mean what they seem or actually represent the opposite of what is (...)

THE LEGACY OF GEORGE W. BUSH 1 Part One By Peter Fredson January 28, 2006 The passionate interlude of William Clinton with Monica Lewinsky started my computer files of Presidential adventures. Soon thousands of files of interesting escapades filled my computer hard-drive, although none as sexy as those of Bill and Monica. There was a great moral outrage of Republican Senators over the Presidential blow-job with a tremendous sackcloth-and-ashes routine for months, including special (...)

CONSIDERATION
By : peter fredsib - Wednesday January 25, 2006
CONSIDERATION By Peter Fredson January 24, 2006 I wonder if President George Bush has ever thought about what his actions reflect, or what consequences will result? Does Bush ever deliberate, reflect, or contemplate? Does he ever recite a little mantra to help his mind instruct his body? Does Bush ever show concern, compassion, respect, sympathy toward other people, other cultures, other religions? Although I have been a Bush watcher for several years I find no trace of concern for (...)

SOME BASIC PROBLEMS WITH GEORGE W. BUSH By Peter Fredson January 24, 2006 Like many Americans, I have spent much time in the past 5 years trying to figure out who George Bush is, how in the world he was considered to be Presidential Material, what he is trying to do, and why his character shows so many flaws but yet his supporters are willing to forgive, overlook, or disbelieve any of his negative elements. Any analysis is difficult as he surely does not act alone, or with ordinary (...)

WAR CRIES By Peter Fredson January 23, 2006 What is appropriate to describe the onset of a war? Crossing the Rubicon, The Die is Cast, The Flight of Birds signals disaster ahead, the Oracle has Spoken, or Crying Wolf? Certainly Greek and Roman warriors had their rhetoric, their beating of shields with swords, the symbolic flight of arrows, the chest-beating, the swaggering and strutting, the bellowing and threatening. In that respect we have not evolved a whit. The entire stage play (...)

I Weep For My Country By Peter Fredson January 20, 2006 Several years ago I was trying to find something on TV worth watching amidst all the commercial propaganda for cars, chapstick, sanitary napkins, and diet pills, when my attention was suddenly focused on the slight figure of a white-haired Senator, with a slight tremor, who was holding a palm-sized copy of our Constitution in his hand. He said this phrase which has since come back to haunt me. “Today I weep for my (...)

BUSH AND NEWSPEAK DIPLOMACY By Peter Fredson January 19, 2006 Most of us know that Bush not only mangles phrases, but he manipulates the meaning of ordinary words, twisting them beyond recognition in some sick paraphrase designed to further his imperial ambitions. For instance, he seems to blast ordinary but “sacred” words in the US into unrecognizable rubble. Democracy, liberty, freedom, and sovereignty have been mangled and distorted far from any legitimate meaning. (...)

PUZZLED TO DEATH

Puzzled to Death By Peter Fredson January 16, 2006 I’m puzzled. Perhaps I’m confused and do not see things clearly. I’m not a lawyer, nor do I play one anywhere. But the legality of the Bush administration actions really puzzles me. For instance, if the President sends people out to destroy a village because he suspects one person in that village has bad intentions toward him, is that okay? I f he does not succeed in killing any terrorist, but instead (...)

BUSH CRUISE MISSILES MURDER PAKISTANI CIVILIANS

Bush Cruise Missiles Murder Pakistani Civilians By Peter Fredson January 14, 2006 Emperor George I, by grace of the Supreme God of the Universe, and the Republican Senate, murdered at least 17 to 35 civilians today, in Pakistan, by launching multiple cruise missiles, which destroyed their homes and lives. By Bush terms, so few deaths are negligible, hardly worth mentioning. He would be willing to murder many more times that number to achieve his objective in combating (...)

FANTASY VS REALITY By Peter Fredson January 10, 2006 I hold no grudges against fantasy. As a teen-ager I had a stack of paper-backs on science-fiction, many books on mythology and religion, and some of the most lurid horror magazines of the 1940’s, not to mention an equally large stack of magazines of the Far West, outlaws, gun-slingers, etc. When I went off to war my mother threw all that “junk” away, which I still mourn as many would now be exceedingly valuable and (...)

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS OF 2005 By Peter Fredson December 30, 2005 As 2005 is fading into history there are some questions regarding George W. Bush that have not yet been answered. Perhaps in his State of the Union Message, in a couple of weeks, he will answer these nagging questions, perhaps not. First of all: Cindy Sheehan says she would like to know what were the noble purposes for which George Bush hastily declared war on Iraq. I too would very much like to know. So far I have (...)

Sovereignty or Slavery

Sovereignty By Peter Fredson December 29, 2005 When I become confused by lies I often turn to my Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary that has been my companion since 1950. Today I read some articles published since 2004 about Iraqi Sovereignty put out by the Neocoms of the Bush Administration and the more I read the more I was confused. The meaning to the Bush thugs of Sovereignty is similar to the meanings of Liberty, Democracy, Freedom, and Constitution. That is, those words mean (...)

REASONABLE EXPECTATIONS By Peter Fredson December 28, 2005 The great majority of Americans reasonably expect that their leaders should uphold American traditions, virtues, ethics and morals. As we look back on the G.W.Bush record in the Presidency, over the past five years, we compare it against the reasonable expectations most Americans have of their Presidents. One of the great virtues is openness, candor, and transparency, clear exposition of facts, frankness, honesty, truthfulness (...)

Victory is declared by George Bush with big smiles, strutting, swaggering, staring intently into the cameras, bobbing his head, making stiff gestures with his hands to show the world that he is (...)

By Peter Fredson December 20, 2005 As we come to the end of 2005, I looked back at the G.W.Bush record to see if it reflected glory or shame. I am forced to the conclusion that he is a dirty President. I don’t mean anything connected necessarily with soap and water, but with morals, ethics, “clean” politics, upstanding behavior, model citizenship, fair play, upholding the laws and respecting the Constitution. I find his conduct to be less than meritorious. GWB prefers (...)

George Bush Is the Law By Peter Fredson December 17, 2005 For several years when I looked at the daily news I was shocked by the arrogance and egomaniacal activity of George W. Bush. Almost daily he would commit some outrage against American values, democracy, freedom, civil rights, or Constitutional protections. All this is done under the guise of protecting Americans from Terrorists. All this is done under constant references to 9/11 which supposedly give GWB some extra-constitutional (...)

I wanted to check how his recent speeches went over with them. It seems that a few had become disappointed with his poor performance and unsatisfactory explanations of the war he started in Iraq. But after his speeches a few decided that confession was really good for the soul. In fact, we might regard the U.S. as a large confessional, with GWB as a (...)

NEW OLD ADMINISTRATION LIES

Formal Administration Lies By Peter Fredson December 15, 2005 The administration lies have been coming fast and thick recently. The President just made a series of speeches, Condi made a series of speeches, and Cheney made several speeches. Ordinarily it would be hard to keep up with so many speeches, except for the fact that essentially they are all the same speech. In several the wording is identical, from cut-and-paste jobs of phrases that sounded good and suckered some Bush devotees (...)

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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 (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

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 (...)
