No Nation Can Long Endure Half Bankrupt
By : Daveparts - Tuesday March 3, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com I take no joy in saying the things I say; I wish I could write about happy puppies loping through the warm grass in the summer sunshine. Oh, wouldn’t it be loverly? I take no pleasure in the things I see; I become angry to the point of outrage, not at the right, no, not at them, they are acting as you would expect spoiled children to act. My anger is with the left, or the lack of the left. Have we become so desensitized as a people (...)

Being Woody Guthrie
By : Daveparts - Sunday March 1, 2009
2 comments
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Today we have so many celebrities who take on social causes; it is almost a given that they will each have some charity or cause that they support. That is good, I suppose, but still there is a clear distinction between being socially conscious and being Woody Guthrie. Woody has been dead almost half a century, and his deeds and exploits have fallen from public memory. Woody wasn’t socially conscious, he was its conscience. In the (...)

All the News that’s Fit to Spit
By : Daveparts - Friday February 27, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com It was announced yesterday that the San Francisco Chronicle is in danger of shutting down. Founded in the days of the California gold rush, the Chronicle was once staffed by writers such as Mark Twain and Bret Harte. But those days are long gone; what with I-Pods and laptops, who reads newspapers anymore? I can’t say that I know much about the Chronicle, being almost 3,000 miles away from it; I’ve never read it. Maybe it was a (...)

Tomorrow a New World Begins
By : Daveparts - Wednesday February 25, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Tomorrow a New World begins; in this new world we are going to tell the unvarnished truth. We are not going to skim the numbers or color the facts. The unemployed are unemployed. They are not discouraged workers, they are not displaced or outsourced, they are unemployed. And they are unemployed, to a large degree, so that a small number of people can get very, very rich. We are not in a recession, repeat, we are not in a recession; we are (...)

The Howling Days of Madness
By : Daveparts - Friday February 20, 2009
By David Glenn Cox You know, sometimes I pick up this 21st century quill and electronic rodent ready to charge down some pre-determined path. Here I was, ready to write a very informative piece about past financial collapses all throughout the history of our capitalist enclave, when the demons overtook me. Perhaps demons or maybe a guiding spirit, pointing me down a spiritual path. Oh, fuck it, it’s damn laziness; at least that’s what they called it in high school. But then, (...)

The Creeping Hand of Socialism
By : Daveparts - Tuesday February 17, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com When we have all been thoroughly indoctrinated in truth, justice and the American way, the very word socialism evokes flickering black and white images of Winston Smith. His empty, loveless life controlled by the stern-faced Big Brother. Or we hear the clicking sounds of jackbooted policemen, and even worse, of the secret policemen. Who told you these things? Who put these images before your eyes? Why, the very people who benefit from (...)

Let the Sky Fall

By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Let the sky fall, let the sun crash and commence with the days of iron rain. Let the blood of the guilty and the tears of the innocent mix and intermingle in the sewers of greed. There is no bipartisanship in Washington; there is only buy partisanship. The President, still in his first month in office, has had dinner with Republican pundits. He has gone to Capitol Hill to meet with both House and Senate Republicans. He has supported a (...)

I’ll Wait For You
By : Daveparts - Saturday February 7, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Years ago I was in a terrible car crash. It was a beautiful, sunny spring day and we were headed for Panama City, Florida. My friend had just replaced his four thousand-pound Ford with a new MGB convertible. The back tire, the driving wheel, got into the gravel and lost traction. The car swerved and he jerked the wheel to correct, but it wasn’t a four thousand-pound Ford, just an eighteen hundred-pound sports car. All of my life (...)

The War on Sense
By : Daveparts - Saturday January 31, 2009
By David Glenn Cox It is a shocking statistic and one that should spur us to action in 2006, 4,800 Americans lost their lives in the search for illicit pleasure. Most were young people under the age of 35 and there were thousands of others who were injured, some permanently in pursuit of kicks and cheap thrills. If we follow the same model as our war on drugs our path is clear, we must outlaw the motorcycle. We must jail it purveyors and those who would facilitate their parts or repair, (...)

Long Shadows
By : Daveparts - Monday January 26, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com The "American Spectator" calls it Obama’s New Deal; CNBC and its parrot networks call it Obama’s New Deal, as well. As would be expected, the right tries to frame the argument by smearing the left. So lost and out of touch are these Ba’thist dead enders that they fail to realize that a New Deal sounds like a pretty good idea to millions of struggling Americans. But Obama’s stimulus program is not another New Deal, (...)

Economics the Hard Way
By : Daveparts - Friday January 23, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com My father used to lament the poor mathematical performance of his children, “They struggle to get a C in math, yet they always know to the penny how much allowance they are due.” It was true enough and goes straight to the heart of the problem with numbers. We have a fundamental disconnect with the numbers that don’t affect us directly. The cheering crowd on the National Mall Tuesday, estimated to be one million plus, was (...)

Message in a Bottle
By : Daveparts - Monday January 19, 2009
By David Glenn Cox I’m too angry to sleep, too weary to hope. I’m too old for optimism and too young to stop fighting. I’d hit someone if only I knew who; I’d march if only I knew where to go. I support the new President and think that he will bring a new vitality to the nation, but my age and anger tells me that vitality is a show business term. That trickle down never reaches us, and political spin is just so much wind passed into our faces. I have seen tax cuts (...)

We Poke Along
By : Daveparts - Monday January 12, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com In May of 1935, Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 7034 establishing the Works Projects Administration. The WPA replaced the Federal Emergency Relief Agency. You see, they didn’t have any cut-and-dried answers, they were in new territory and kept trying things until they got it right. The WPA only existed for eight years, but over the course of its life it employed a total of 8,500,000 people. Republicans called it a bastion (...)

Happy Idiot
By : Daveparts - Friday January 9, 2009
By David Glenn Cox Gee, I wish I could be a happy idiot. Just think, then nothing to worry about except whether Tom Cruise and his wife are going to have another baby or not. Gosh, life would be swell; it makes you wonder why Steinbeck wrote all those depressing stories about poor people. How could anyone sit through Hemingway’s story about an old fisherman and a fish when they could have been reading about who Clark Gable was dating? It really makes you wonder about this world, (...)

Connecting the Dots
By : Daveparts - Thursday January 8, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com It seems I can’t even watch TV news anymore, it just makes me too angry, the cluelessness of the government. I voted for change, not a slight alteration but for change. I sit here in this tiny berg of Powder Springs and I ask myself, “Why is it that I can see these things and these highly-paid experts and analysts don’t?” I see an economy coming apart at the seams and the politicians of both parties are talking (...)

Money Owes No Allegiance
By : Daveparts - Tuesday January 6, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Jan. 5 (Bloomberg) — "The engines that have lifted the U.S. economy out of every recession since World War II will be of little help this time around. Inventory rebuilding, household spending, home construction and payroll growth — the forces that powered, to a greater or lesser extent, each recovery since 1945 — may remain missing for much of 2009. A glut of unsold properties may keep housing depressed, while shriveled (...)

The CIA Wouldn’t Lie to Us, Would They?
By : Daveparts - Monday January 5, 2009
By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com I guess that all depends on who they’re talking to; they lie to suit their purpose and tell the truth when it fits their needs. If you were to ask a government official, “Are UFO’s real?” they would smile a paternalistic smile and maybe even roll their eyes a little and say, “No Virginia, UFO’s aren’t real.” Then this same government would publish a FEMA manual of procedures for firefighters (...)

Dumbocracy By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com "You don’t have to pass an IQ test to be in the Senate,” Senator Mark Pryor once said. If ever there was one word of truth emitting from the halls of congress, this was it. I’ve heard it said that democracy works best in small groups, but you couldn’t prove it by me. With my family of four in tow I would take them out to dinner using the democratic model by which we would decide on pizza. Then the (...)

God is With Us

God is With Us By David Glenn Cox http://theservantsofpilate.com Tom Lehrer, one of the first satirical, political song writers, once penned a song entitled “National Brotherhood Week.” The song went, “Oh, the black folks hate the white folks and the white folks hate the black folks and the Indians hate the Mexicans and everybody hates the Jews." Funny, because it is was so true. But then as now, to confound cause and purpose with religion and race discolors the argument (...)

All Right, But Just This Once.
By : Daveparts - Wednesday December 24, 2008
All Right, But Just This Once. By David Glenn Cox Years ago there was a “Far Side” cartoon with an angry lynch mob in front of an old, Western jail. The sheriff was addressing the mob, “Now you boys know that I can’t just turn him over to you without a fair trial. Well, all right, but just this once.” That pretty much covers my feelings towards Mr. Madoff. I’m all for law and order, but this admitted criminal, who used trust to defraud his victims, will (...)

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 (...)

Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America. 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. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

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 (...)
