Critical Information for all Katrina victims, refugees, survivors
By : Gerald Lieberman - Monday September 5, 2005
4 comments
Israeli citizens that made their homes in the illegal (under international law) settlements in Gaza, are to receive between $200,000 - $300,000 each to relocate- paid for by US taxpayer dollars. "Settlers, who were encouraged by the Israeli government to move to settlements, are entitled to compensation," says Sarit Michaeli, spokesman for B’Tselem, the independent Israeli information centre for human rights in the occupied territories. Israel has negotiated a $2.2 billion dollar (...)

Budget cuts delayed New Orleans flood control work By Andy Sullivan
By : Andy Sullivan - Monday September 5, 2005
By Andy Sullivan Bush administration funding cuts forced federal engineers to delay improvements on the levees, floodgates and pumping stations that failed to protect New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina’s floodwaters, agency documents showed on Thursday. The former head of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency that handles the infrastructure of the nation’s waterways, said the damage in New Orleans probably would have been much less extensive had flood-control efforts (...)

No one can say they didn’t see it coming"
By : Sidney Blumenthal - Saturday September 3, 2005
In 2001, FEMA warned that a hurricane striking New Orleans was one of the three most likely disasters in the U.S. But the Bush administration cut New Orleans flood control funding by 44 percent to pay for the Iraq war. By Sidney Blumenthal Biblical in its uncontrolled rage and scope, Hurricane Katrina has left millions of Americans to scavenge for food and shelter and hundreds to thousands reportedly dead. With its main levee broken, the evacuated city of New Orleans has become part of (...)

Truth about Cuba’s economy lies in middle
By : Paolo Spadoni - Saturday September 3, 2005
3 comments
by Paolo Spadoni Last February, Fidel Castro proudly stated that Cuba is recovering from the ashes of its post-Soviet economic recession and "rising again like the phoenix." Conversely, U.S. Interests Section Chief James Cason recently said that the island is facing severe economic problems and that Castro’s government "is on its last legs." What is the truth about the current status of Cuba’s economy? The economic situation in Cuba is not as bad as U.S. officials would have (...)

The world has seen the cataclysmic aftermath of Katrina. There has been an outpouring of support throughout the world. Many countries have offered immediate, life-saving resources. But the jackals and hyenas in the current hub of power in d.c. (comics) refuse all offers to help, saying that this is an "internal affair". The "white" house is glad to see the devastation. More reconstruction $$$ into Halliburton’s (etc.) pockets. There’s only one thing money can’t buy, and (...)

Borrowing, Spending, Counterfeiting

Texas Straight Talk http://www.house.gov/paul/ Few Americans truly understand how our Federal Reserve system enables Congress to spend far beyond its means, but the cycle of spending and printing money affects all of us. Simply put, the more money our Treasury prints, the less every dollar is worth. Our pure fiat money system, in place since the last vestiges of a gold standard were eliminated in the early 1970s, has reduced the value of your savings by 80%. Disregard the (...)

The Trillion-Dollar War
By : LINDA BILMES - Tuesday August 23, 2005
By LINDA BILMES Cambridge, Mass. THE human cost of the more than 2,000 American military personnel killed and 14,500 wounded so far in Iraq and Afghanistan is all too apparent. But the financial toll is still largely hidden from public view and, like the suffering of those who have lost loved ones, will persist long after the fighting is over. The cost goes well beyond the more than $250 billion already spent on military operations and reconstruction. Basic running costs of the current (...)

Annual NII report shows 1.5m Israelis below poverty line
By : Ruth Sinai - Monday August 8, 2005
By Ruth Sinai In 2004, 1.534 million people in Israel lived below the poverty line, according to a National Insurance Institution (NII) poverty report released Monday. The figure attests to a substantial rise in poverty rates, with 100,000 more poor Israelis in 2004 than there were in 2003. The report also shows that the number of poor families make up 20.3 percent of Israel’s population. The number of children living in poor families has reached 700,000. After six years of (...)

Train Wreck of the Week
By : Bob Chapman - Monday July 25, 2005
In three votes the Senate, unable to reach a consensus on how much to spend, rejected proposals to increase the Homeland Security Department’s budget for mass transit and rail by amounts from $100 million to $1.4 billion. It finally voted 96 to 1 to adopt a $31.9 billion spending plan for Fatherland Security in the 2006 budget, which is preposterous. There is little if no terrorist threat in America. By next June the British plan to cut their forces in Iraq from 8,500 to 3,000 at the (...)

Some old guy in front of me was picking up his little paper bag of prescription medicine. The lady behind the counter handed him a credit card slip and said, "I’m sorry." She was sorry because the bill was over $1,200. The old man stared at the charge card receipt and stared at it some more. Hesitating, he signed, then said, "I hope I die before I have to pay for (...)

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.

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.

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 (...)
