Remembering February 27
By : Daveparts - Thursday September 11, 2008
The day after Adolph Hitler became Chancellor of Germany his deputy and propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels wrote in his diary, “In conference with the Fuehrer we lay down the line for the fight against the red terror. For the moment we shall abstain from direct counter measures. The Bolshevik attempt at revolution must first burst into flame. At the proper moment we shall strike.” The Bolshevik attempt at revolution must first burst into flame? What an ironic statement, burst (...)

The Latest Bush War
By : Daveparts - Wednesday August 13, 2008
2 comments
By David Glenn Cox Ah, the time grows short from May to November, but still there is time for one more Bush war. The Russian incursion into Georgia has been heavy-handed and overbearing, but not really all that surprising. Russia is a nation on the far edge of Europe, and prior to the 20th century all political communications were sent by dispatch. Before the Czars could hear about an issue, in many cases it was already over. Ruling over a huge empire with weak and almost non-existent (...)

Be Careful What You Wish For
By : Daveparts - Tuesday July 29, 2008
By David Glenn Cox The Peoples Corporate Republic of China, the world’s largest slave labor plantation, have sought desperately to showcase to the world their Two Systems -One China policy by hosting the Olympic games. So far the plan is working beyond their wildest expectations, but not in the way they anticipated. While many hosting countries have, in the past, feared not having Olympic venues ready in time for the visiting people, China’s problems are just the opposite. (...)

Catch 23
By : Daveparts - Tuesday July 22, 2008
1 comment
By David Glenn Cox Probably the most profound statement made by a US President in the last fifty years was “It all depends on what your definition of is, is.” We no longer have Presidents who make profound statements, they would be lost over the heads of the masses and so the old axiom kicks in: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit. Fox News claims the recent drop in oil prices is due to President Bush lifting the executive order banning (...)

The Seething
By : Daveparts - Friday July 11, 2008
The Seething By David Glenn Cox People generally are passive and understanding, but as the pressure builds the passivity evaporates and what is left behind is a crystallized seething. A feeling that says, “I’m being screwed and I’m tired of it and you hide and watch what happens to the next person that tries it.” President Bush made a You Tube appearance where he waved to onlookers as he stepped off Air Force One and they just stared back at him.

Independence Day

Independence Day By David Glenn Cox There is nothing new under the sun, the murder of Caesar or the shots in Dallas. Conspiracies demand either victims or adherents. You’re either with us or agin us, sound familiar? We must all hang together or certainly we shall all hang separately. Ah, but that’s the point entirely! To hang you separately! You, who toil for a living, to educate children or deliver bread, or drive a beer truck or embalm the dead, (...)

McCain’s Greatest Enemy
By : Daveparts - Thursday June 5, 2008
By David Glenn Cox So, the Presidential campaign has begun in earnest, the policies, the politics, the personalities. The character assassinations, the implications, the reflexive comments and the unsaid innuendo, but for just a moment lets drop back into a huddle. We, as a species, tend to become overwrought and miss the obvious, outside of the politics, outside of party; we tend over-complicate, while dreaming of flight we forget about gravity. We forget the inescapable, the Democrats (...)

“ Rich people, God Bless Us!”

“ Rich people, God Bless Us!” By David Glenn Cox Here in the polarized states of America, with a little media magic, a draft dodger can become a war hero and a war hero a charlatan. After the New York Times exposé explains the media’s complicity in what has been going on, well thanks, but no thanks. Old news, Robert Novak and Judith Miller, Op Ed’s by Richard Perle and Pat Buchanon, the story then turns to inside baseball. Just conspirators trying to unburden (...)

Chinese Junk
By : Daveparts - Thursday April 24, 2008
By David Glenn Cox Strother Martin, in the classic film, "Cool Hand Luke," uttered those immortal words: “What we’ve have here is failure to communicate.” That sums up the current war of words between the Peoples Republic of China and CNN. Part of this situation is pure, heavy-handed, government propaganda, and part is American arrogance, quick to point out the sty in other’s eyes while unwilling to deal with the log in their own. A failure to communicate, based on (...)

There’s a Beggar at the Door, It’s Your Banker
By : Daveparts - Thursday March 6, 2008
There’s a Beggar at the Door, It’s Your Banker By David Glenn Cox My parents used to tell me about the last great depression, I vividly remember my father explaining to me how the landlady would come to beg his parents for the rent. Not to ask for the rent or demand the rent but beg. My grandparents would give her whatever they had at the time, fifty, seventy-five cents. She would leave, joyous for a small percentage of the five-dollar rent. She was happy because it was her (...)

The Man Nobody Wanted
By : David Cox - Wednesday March 5, 2008
By David Glenn Cox There is something strange going on in the political landscape of America. Something both parties see as a threat to national security, well to their national security at least. The candidates of both major political parties strike terror into the hearts of both political parties’ leadership for the same reason, and for opposite reasons. Last year it was a foregone conclusion that the Democratic nominee would be Hillary Clinton, no one doubted it for one minute, (...)

Operation Canned Goods
By : Daveparts - Monday March 3, 2008
Operation Canned Goods By David Glenn Cox History is written by the victors, that much is true. Not only are the valiant deeds of the victors made public but the crimes of the vanquished as well. The Spanish American War was predicated on the premise that Spanish radicals had planted explosives on the American battleship, USS Maine. The American ambassador described the negotiations, in his diary of that day, as going well and exceptional progress being made. But with the death of the (...)

I know! Let’s Rape Grandma!

I Know! Let’s Rape Grandma! By David Glenn Cox With the current subprime crisis, most lenders don’t sleep well at night. For years they lived an idyllic life style, lending out a dollar and getting back a buck and a quarter. Come in late and leave early; only a pimp had it better. But bankers never had to contend with the cops or wayward hookers. Like a drug dealer they just stood on the corner and waited for the suckers to come to them. Not that bankers don’t do good (...)

A Ship’s Smoke on the Horizon By David Glenn Cox The lost and stranded are always grasping for survival, it is human nature. Ernest Shackleton, lost in the Antarctic in 1914, gave his men a speech promising them only survival. And to emphasize the point he tore a single page from the Bible, a page that promised salvation, and threw down the rest of the book into the snow. Banished were any other ideas, only certain salvation was to be contemplated. It was a masterstroke of (...)

The Mother of All Dumb Ideas
By : Daveparts - Wednesday February 27, 2008
The Mother of All Dumb Ideas By David Glenn Cox We’ve all had dumb ideas in our past and I don’t exempt myself from this. I once threw Gunk engine degreaser on the floor to degrease it. Just one thing, I forgot to turn off the pilot light on the water heater first. Dumb? Man, that was dumb. After I got the fire put out my boss asked me, "Did you learn anything today?" I slowly shook my head and humbly answered, "Yes, yes I did." But my mistake was an error, not of (...)

The Gray Side of the Mirror
By : Daveparts - Sunday February 24, 2008
The Gray Side of the Mirror By David Glenn Cox The truth lives in the gray side of the mirror, rather than reflect the truth it absorbs it. Rather than accept the truth it absolves it, rather than championing truth it only bears it. The gray side of the mirror is the unpresented side, the side kept in the dark just as we are kept in the dark, shoved between frame and wall, between dark and light. Unasked, unnoticed, unrequited. Like the Shroud of Turin, its facets and details are only (...)

Watching the Dinosaurs Fall

Watching the Dinosaurs Fall By David Glenn Cox The motivation for this comes from an article written by Martin Wolf of the Financial Times and he told the truth, mainly. I won’t dispute a single fact or figure but in his article, “America’s economy risks mother of all meltdowns” he comes to us as a prognosticator, predicting the future of the things that will be. He wants to be the ghost of Christmas future when in fact he is the ghost of Christmas present. Come (...)

The Rockets Red Glare By David Glenn Cox The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Gosh, they really do think we’re stupid, all of us, not just the Fox viewers. Our protector, big bad bullyboy George, is going to protect us from an errant spy satellite. Its orbit is decaying and no mortal can judge where it might fall to Earth. Now considering that since the Earth’s surface is 2/3rds water, George thinks that, for safety’s sake, we (...)

The Jewel in the Crown
By : Daveparts - Tuesday February 19, 2008
The Jewel in the Crown By David Glenn Cox According to the Wall Street pundits, a stock market correction is anytime that the market goes down 10%. Since October we’ve had two corrections and have started on a third. The Wall Street Journal reports that 8 billion dollars have fled from US stock investment portfolios. In finance all good things are bad things and all bad things are good things. The escaping capital has reduced the volatility of the market, like when the big winner (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
