If You Build Them They Will Come
By : Daveparts - Wednesday August 12, 2009
By David Glenn Cox The healthcare debate just keeps spinning out of control, death panels and let’s kill off granny movements bumbling, stumbling with overweight, jackboot wannbes. Watch them pretending outrage while keeping one eye on the director. I was watching the video of the St. Louis town hall scuffle and one man seems to always be on the edge of the camera shot. When he looks at the camera the camera moves forward almost like he was giving instructions. But when you hire (...)

Woodstock, Handmade

By David Glenn Cox It is funny how sometimes you start out to write one story and end up writing another. I have been doing research on Woodstock and as the old joke goes, “If you remember it, you weren’t there.” I remember it well enough and I wasn’t there, but as I watched the You Tube videos I began to remember details long forgotten, plus some things that I’ve learned since. I was watching a video of the Rolling Stones in Hyde Park in 1969, playing "Honky (...)

Raising Baby Bubba
By : David Glenn Cox - Saturday August 8, 2009
By David Glenn Cox There is a video making the rounds on the Internet of a woman dragging her child on a leash through a Verizon store. There was scads of outrage and the mother was charged with a felony. Well, Dr. Obvious says that child abuse emanates from poor parenting skills. When my wife was pregnant with our first child, another couple dropped by to congratulate us. As we chatted the husband said, “Enjoy those house plants while you can!” “Why is that?" I asked. (...)

How Far Must Johnny March ?
By : Daveparts - Thursday August 6, 2009
By David Glenn Cox Lost in the debate over health care and in between Sarah Palin’s speeches and right about the time the thriller stopped thrilling was Secretary of Defense Robert Gates announcing a “Temporary” expansion of the Army by 22,000 men. This temporary expansion is designed to take the strain off the Army. The Army has been growing all along and had reached 547,000 before this latest announcement. Some don’t think that 22,000 are enough; Senator Joe (...)

The Gate Keepers of Death
By : Daveparts - Sunday August 2, 2009
By David Glenn Cox There are several reasons that I believe we won’t get adequate healthcare reform. The first reason is that we don’t really deserve it. We let the political class ride unicycles and juggle bowling pins, anything to amuse the cows. Then we let the media and special interest lobbying groups tell us what’s good for us and what’s bad for us. We rail against what we don’t like and mumble about what we do want, and since the bulk of us are healthy (...)

In All the World

By David Glenn Cox I write about homelessness and I get answers like, “So, are you for or against Obama’s stimulus?” Recently I read an article that was highly rated entitled “Now is the Time to Give Up on the President.” The author, using snark and sarcasm, set up straw men and then proceeded to knock them all down, arguing that it is much too soon to criticize this president. The underlying theme was, however, that to criticize the President was to be (...)

Not Discouraged, Abandoned
By : Daveparts - Sunday July 26, 2009
By David Glenn Cox Last month the number of Americans who lost their jobs was revised down to 467,000, just under a half a million. The total number of newly unemployed now stands at 14.7 million people. That number was revised downward 358,000 by a government technique used to classify those unemployed for more than twelve months as discouraged workers. I am one of those workers, but I do not consider myself a discouraged worker as much as an abandoned worker. I have four resumes, (...)

GM’s Free Ride
By : Daveparts - Friday July 24, 2009
By David Glenn Cox A free ride on your dime, that is. Let us dispense with all talk of welfare cheats and lazy, good for nothings that don’t want to work until we deal with the king of welfare cheats, the king of free rides, and the king of government handout checks. Under the terms of the government sponsored bankruptcy deal, GM has been able to void worker contracts for wages and benefits, shed itself of the health insurance concerns, permanently eliminated 21,000 American jobs (...)

Coming Soon, to a Life Near You
By : Daveparts - Thursday July 23, 2009
By David Glenn Cox The other day I went with my son to the metal salvage yard. We had been cleaning up the shop and had two or three engine blocks plus the usual amalgamation of sheet metal. We pulled into the yard to wait in line for the weigh-in scale and in front of us was a large construction truck loaded down with scaffolding. Scaffolding on its way to the crusher and then to be melted down because that construction company saw no future need in owning scaffolding as a tool of its (...)

Saving Tinkerbell
By : Daveparts - Thursday July 16, 2009
By David Glenn Cox My November dreams have become restless nightmares now, as I toss and turn unable to find rest. Night figures haunt me, walking alone and in groups alone in the shadows, yet even through the darkness I can see their faces. Pale and gaunt, tight with anxiety, thin with hunger, steel eyes looking nowhere and everywhere. Looking back over their shoulders towards the future, like looking for yesterday to find tomorrow as they walk away slowly into the distance. Why do they (...)

The Ticking Clock
By : Daveparts - Wednesday July 15, 2009
By David Glenn Cox The clock ticks just the same each second as the hands point to the different hours. Day, night, morning, evening, and still the clock just ticks away the seconds. Listening to the ticking obscures the facts that things are changing quickly and that many of us have no idea what time it is. Right wing pundits make veiled remarks and some step out into the sunlight and call for insurrection and revolution. It should be remembered that in the cauldron of human existence (...)

A New Beginning
By : Daveparts - Monday July 13, 2009
By David Glenn Cox Political parties, like people, have a life span, but unlike people they are driven by their relevance. Political parties which are no longer relevant cease to exist. The Republican Party is a perfect example; its central core values of low taxes, small government and less regulation have been proven false and the Republicans have been exposed for what they are, the party of the rich, the party of less taxes for the rich, and the party of less opportunity for the poor. (...)

If We’re Not There, Start Without US

By David Glenn Cox It is well-documented that Joe Biden has been known to speak out of turn. Of course the flip side of such a reputation is the ability to say things meant in earnest and then to simply laugh them off. On Sunday the Vice President told George Stephanopoulos that Israel has a sovereign right to decide how to deal with Iran’s nuclear ambitions whether the United States agrees or not. His statements are beyond absurd, more worthy of a Dick Cheney or of Genghis Kahn. (...)

The Message of Benjamin Franklin
By : Daveparts - Friday July 3, 2009
By David Glenn Cox I was asked: what are you proud of this Fourth? Currently? Very little, but I see the future because the past is the future. These people that we were, are unusual in their patience and uncommon in their valor. When the rupture with the British Parliament first occurred, the Continental Congress selected Benjamin Franklin to go to London as the voice of reason. Franklin was considered the foremost American in the world. A man of science and of letters, he was respected (...)

Thirty Days in the New America

By David Glenn Cox I write with both anger and frustration at a people so insolated and conditioned like Pavlov’s dog that they have lost the ability to feel, to empathize with their fellow man. We had another murder-suicide here in Atlanta so I went to my browser and typed in Murder-Suicide. Out of the over seven million links, I put together a list for the past 30 days.

Spare Parts
By : Daveparts - Thursday June 25, 2009
By David Glenn Cox There are few people in this world that I wish hard tidings upon, some, but few just the same. Generally they fall into three categories. The first are the media rich who offer us suggestions as to how to climb to their lofty level without having wealthy birth parents. They are, for the most part, full of it! “Max out your 401K contributions every year and start a medical savings account. Don’t buy that new car every year; keep it for two or even three years, (...)

The Ghosts of Detroit (Part 2) By David Glenn Cox It was Durant who invented the modern car company, different models in different price ranges with different features all made with basically the same parts. The problem was Durant was a victim of his own success, he kept on buying more and more suppliers and car companies that added little to the GM line up. He bought thirteen different car companies and ten parts companies and then the sales began to slump. GM would need $12 million to (...)

The Ghosts of Detroit
By : David Glenn Cox - Tuesday June 23, 2009
By David Glenn Cox For the most part they have been forgotten; they are just empty, vacant memories like the empty, dilapidated homes which line her once proud streets. It was a land once ruled over by giants, captains of industry and labor and political thought. Of course, some remember the obvious ones, Ford or Durant. Yet there were so many more who, by their brains and backs, created out of thin air an economic powerhouse unrivalled anywhere in the world. Young Mr. Ford was a tinkerer (...)

Endless War, Empty Goals By David Glenn Cox The headlines could be from 2003, 2004, 2006 or 2008, and nothing changes. “Rescuers Search Iraq Blast Site” “US Base Attacked in Afghanistan” “US to improve Afghan Training.” If this were World War Two, the Yalta conference would have been two years ago and President Truman would be planning to meet in San Francisco soon to establish the UN. The wheels and the machinations turn and yet nothing changes; the (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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
Friday 28 September
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 (...)

They have also been the subject of much political debate and the focus of a Frontline special entitled College Inc. Unlike traditional (...)

PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education.

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

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 (...)
