RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING...
Public Education in this country, especially in the major cities - populated by those families and children who most need it - is a DISASTER.
I have been writing about this for two decades, published mainly in the "Public Education Politics" section of this web site.
Now comes more evidence. See: "An Education Horror Show" (WSJ Editorial, July 8, pA16).
Then see the report in the Weekly Standard "Report on the incident at Middlebury College", emblematic of similar scenes going on on college campuses throughout the country.
"Unable to speak over the incessant jeers, (Charles) Murray was escorted out of the room, only to see the protests turn violent. The crowd pounded on the car he entered, rocked it back and forth, and climbed onto the hood. The professor escorting him ended up in the hospital."

What is equally a disaster is the recurring overwhelming political support given to the Democratic Party, a wholly - owned subsidiary of the National Teachers Unions, by Blacks and other minorities - the main victims of this bastardization of public education. IDIOCY AND FAILURE OF PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY. What a Shame.

They can’t imagine what hard contact lenses are.
They don’t know who Mork was or where he was from.
They never heard:
“Where's the Beef?", “I’d walk a mile for a Camel”, or "de plane, Boss, de plane"
They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.
McDonald’s never came in Styrofoam containers.
They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter.

1) The Fentanyl "crisis" is not hyperbole. This is bad and getting worse.
See the very informative article in ctmirror.org, June 30, 2019.
The life you save may be that of your child or grandchild.

2) Should "Chronic Pain" be a category added to those conditions warranting access to Medical Marijuana?
I agree with the psychiatrist from Yale: "a very broad and poorly defined clinical entity". Also likely a back door entry to "recreational marijuana."

3) A subject with both medical and fairness implications relates to "transgender" athletes. See recent articles in The Day by Lee Elci and by Amby Burfoot. How about a little common sense here?

4) A recent article in The Day discusses the history - and the plight - of "cadet nurses" in the WWII US Cadet Nurse Corps. Former President Harry Truman reportedly said that "cadet nurses should be compensated as other military veterans are." As is so often the case, our politicians "can be counted on to do the right thing...when everything else fails". 

5) In the often fluid and sometimes stormy atmosphere that is international relations, where today's ally can be tomorrow's adversary, America should not be selling the products of our military and scientific efforts "just to make a buck" - or many billions of bucks as is the case. Besides the ability to turn our weapons against us, reverse engineering is a certainty. See the recent article in The Day about our problems with Turkey and India.

6) Trying to "turn a silk purse into a sow's ear". Leave it to the Washington Post, the AP, and regrettably our own The Day to denigrate an excellent and unifying Washington July 4th celebration...just because President Trump was part of it. You delusionals: GET OVER IT. YOU LOST!

A REGUAR GUY?

At  least  it’s   comforting   to   learn  that   some  others   find  themselves   in  the  same   dilemma.

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . . I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist;   

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist;   

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic;   

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business;   

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel;   

I am older than 70, which makes me a useless old man;   

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary;   

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive culture, which makes me a xenophobe;   

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist;   

I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist;   

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant;   

Recently, a woman called me and my friends a “basket of deplorables”;   

Please help me come to terms with the new me...
because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!   

I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking - I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly. 

Funny...
it's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years.

Wouldn't this be nice to see this in all the U.S. newspapers and on all the major TV networks?


 
‘They Don’t Even TRY’: Hungary’s New Border Fence called a ‘Spectacular Success’......
  
Skeptics who believe a border wall will not stop illegals from entering the United States may want to look at what’s happening in Hungary.
 
On the day its border fence was completed, the influx of illegals entering Hungary went down from 6,353 per day to 870 the next. For the remainder of that month, illegal border crossings were steadily below 40 per day, officials said.
 
“They don’t even try,” a local border guard told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We haven’t had a single Muslim migrant in six months.” 
 
Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s pledge to stop illegals from flowing into the country appears to be a spectacular success.
 
Hungary’s 96-mile long, 14-foot tall double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence, the DC report said.
 
Nearly every police officer in Hungary is part of a rotation to monitor the border fence   at all times. Temporary military bases house the police while they do their rotation.
 
Additionally, Hungary will train and pay more than 1,000 volunteers to deploy as “border hunters”.
 
Illegals who are caught are arrested and dropped off on the Serbian side of the fence. They don’t get a chance to apply for asylum unless they do so at a “transit zone” where they are held in housing containers while their cases get processed, the report said.
 
In September 2016, thousands of migrants streamed across the border every day as they made their way north to Austria, Germany and Scandinavia.
 
“It was an invasion,” Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of Asotthalom, told the Daily Caller.
 
“Illegal immigration is a crime in a normal country. It’s not a normal thing to break into a country.”
 
“By mid-year it was well beyond 100,000 people who came across,” said Zoltan Kovacs, a spokesman for the Hungarian government. “You should at least have the ability to handle what’s going on.”
 
Kovacs added: “You might not like it, it’s not a nice thing, but … the only way to stop illegal border crossings is to first build a fence, man it, equip it, and also, in parallel, build up your capabilities in terms of legal confines, legal circumstances to be able to handle what is coming.”
 
It’s no surprise the mainstream U.S. media refuses to report this story to the American public. Can you imagine how support for a Southern border wall would spike if they could hear about this?
 
With illegal crossings into the United States exceeding 140,000 in the month of May 2019,
the Democrats who encourage and invite this  should be ashamed of themselves.  Do you realize that the number of illegal border crossings in May alone exceeds that of  the Allied invasion of France on  D-Day?

A  NATION  WORTH   LAUDING  --   ---  from  Heritage  Foundation:
This week, as Americans commemorate Independence Day and the creation of the most free, most prosperous nation on earth, we will inevitably hear from those who say there’s no reason to celebrate a country where not everyone gained their freedom or their equality in 1776. They will say that a nation stained with the evil of slavery, a nation that once refused women and blacks the right to vote or hold property, isn’t a nation worth lauding. 
As a woman and as a black person who lived through segregation, I have experienced both the inequality and the opportunity of this nation. As a student of history and as someone who works with governments around the world, I know how women and minorities are treated in other societies compared to the United States. Because of these experiences, I want to tell you exactly why America is worth celebrating.
Despite their flawed nature as human beings, our Founders laid out principles for forming a nation based on humanity’s highest ideals. Nowhere else on earth had that ever been done before. Those founding principles have guided this nation and created a framework that allows society to recognize the error of its ways.  The fact is, we abolished slavery. We even fought a war over it. We ultimately recognized women’s and minorities’ right to vote, to own property, and to have the full and equal rights of any other citizen. We have endeavored through our laws and our actions to eradicate the unequal treatment and marginalization of fellow Americans because of their ethnicity, religion, politics, or other characteristics.
July 4, 1776 — and the principles that day epitomized — began the foundation for a nation that would right its own wrongs. The unfortunate reality is that we had to grow into our principles. The Founders knew what we aspired to be, but the country wasn’t there yet and even today, we still have a ways to go. In fact, every Founder admitted in his writings that slavery contradicted the equality principle of the Declaration of Independence. They knew that it would be a journey for us to fully realize our ideals, but they set a course for achieving them, and every generation since has been working to advance them. That’s what has made America the unique and wonderful nation that it is. 
I love America not only because we’ve grown to rectify many of our wrongs, but also because we’ve been an incredibly positive force for good. We’ve built a free and prosperous nation where anyone has the opportunity to thrive and live out their dreams. We’ve also shared that gift with the world, helping others to achieve the same.
Despite that success, we continue to hear from the “America is irreparably flawed” crowd that our freedom and free market system only bring opportunity to the wealthy and well connected. They claim that the system just makes the rich richer and the poor poorer.  The reality is exactly the opposite: Capitalism has done more to lift people out of poverty than any other economic system in history. Plain and simple, over the last 25 years, it has been free markets that have cut the global poverty rate by two thirds. In the United States, every segment of the population — including women, minorities, and even the lowest income earners — have seen their incomes rise and their opportunities grow.
Realizing that people around the world deserve the same blessings of freedom and prosperity that we have, Americans work through our government, non-profits, and private charities to spread these blessings to other countries. We’ve even helped others fight for their very freedom — from both world wars to peacekeeping missions around the world. Despite the leftists who call our nation imperialist, when we help other countries defeat tyrants or repel invaders, we don’t use the opportunity to conquer them and build an empire. Rather, we help them to rebuild and become self-sufficient.
These are all proofs of a nation reaching for its highest ideals. While it took too long to correct many of America’s early injustices, and while we will always be a work in progress, our founding principles themselves created the framework that has allowed us to solve some of our biggest issues. While not perfect, we are a great force for good that works to bring freedom, prosperity, and that problem-solving ability to our own land and to others that want to replicate them. This is all part of what we are celebrating on Independence Day. Alexis de Tocqueville said admiringly of America, “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” His words still ring true almost 200 years later.  So, on this Independence Day, I encourage you to join me in watching fireworks, eating hot dogs and apple pie, proudly celebrating America, and continuing to work toward the vision of the nation our Founders thought we could be.  Happy Independence Day!

New Diversity in Congress

What a travesty for our nation.

The New Diversity in Congress
Several months ago, the 116th Congress was sworn in, and all day long, the media was fawning
over the “remarkable diversity” of the new Democrat members.
 
It was a day of “firsts,” we were told repeatedly.

While the new Democrat majority offers many members of note, we want to highlight a few “firsts”
who are examples of the “diversity” that was sworn in then.

HERE ARE OUR TOP MOST “DIVERSE” HOUSE FRESHMEN:

#1.    Ilhan Omar
     The first person who married her brother to commit immigration fraud ever to be elected
to Congress.   Omar is also the first open supporter of female genital mutilation to ever
be elected to Congress.   Such amazing diversity!

#2.    Rashida Tlaib
One of the first Muslim Brotherhood-linked and anti-Semitic candidates to be elected
to Congress.  She also claims to be a Palestinian – not American.   Wonders never cease.
Also has potty mouth using the term "mother f***er" for the president.

#3.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
     Where do we even begin?
   Let’s just say she is the first person elected to Congress who lied about being from the Bronx,
and thus, made up her life story.
She’s also an overt Marxist, in case you forgot.

#4.    Abigail Spanberger
     The first substitute teacher from an Islamist school (nicknamed “Terror High”) ever
to be elected to Congress.

#5 .   Donna Shalala
     Rep. Shalala was HHS Secretary from 1993 to 2001 under Bill Clinton and worked from
2015 to 2017 at the Clinton Foundation, and in 2016 she admitted in an interview that some
significant Clinton Foundation donors received “courtesy appointments”   in the Clinton
State Department.
