Ariel Sharon was a giant of Israeli politics. More than that, he was a lion—albeit a rotund one—God love him; and he is missed.
Justice And The Law Do Not Mix By Timothy D. Naegele Justice is in the eye of the beholder, and not some absolute standard that is clearly and quantifiably definable or identifiable. However, human beings have a sense of what is just and what is not, which is often governed by their belief systems and […]
Stalin and Mao were the most ruthless killers of their own people, and that is Putin’s heritage. He learned his craft well; and he must be viewed in this context, not as some Westernized Russian democrat, which he is not.
Can our legal system be fixed, and will the American people come to trust and respect lawyers and judges again, and believe that justice not only exists but prevails in this great nation? Maybe . . . if the profession is restructured, and if it attracts those people who believe that the law is sacred, sacrosanct and pristine—truly a shining city upon a hill—and they put such principles into practice.
Are the United States and China on a collision course in the Western Pacific and elsewhere? Only time will tell. However, one can never forget that China’s violent past was only a short time ago, and its human rights abuses continue to this day.

In the final analysis, will he be viewed by history as a racist or a healer? Time will tell.
Stalin and Mao were the most ruthless killers of their own people in the 20th Century, and perhaps in the entire history of mankind. It is time for the silent voices of those who died to be heard, and for these human tragedies of epic proportions to be recognized fully.
