The shocking headline from Pravda...

USA executes its citizens every ten days

... would explain why immigrants wield so much political clout.

    Substitute "criminals" for "citizens" and most of us would be comfortable. But what does that say about what we think of "criminals"? Are they so much less a person, as in the image and likeness of God, or a citizen, that we should be comfortable being comfortable with their execution? Perhaps, in a sense, Pravda is confronting us with a truth...

    Today the U.S. is the country with most people in prision. We have created a criminal underclass second to none. The Mafia, the black gangs, the creeps and the bloods, the latin gangs like Mara Salvatrucha are just a sample. Just because Europe is a sick man, doesnt mean we do not have our own moral decay to contend with.

    Another cold war joke: A communist apatchik talks at length about the wonderful life in USSR. One of the comrades reacts: " Tthis is all a big surprize for me. How come I have never seen or heard about all these great things we are all supposedly enjoying?" The aparatchik answers angrily: "It is, because you do not read newspaper, comrade!"

    Old Cold War Joke: Pravda means Truth Ivestia means News There is no Pravda in Ivestia and No Ivestia in Pravda

    It's good to see Pravda is still in business and providing the "Truth." I thought that after the Soviet apparatus collapsed most of the writers for Pravda came over to the states and got jobs writing for the NY and LA Times.
