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.

What I Learned in the Peace Corps

> Did a Former Peace Corps Volunteer Defend Trump’s Sh*thole ...
>
>
> Africa the Dark Continent.  This is horrifying, but needs to be known.  Makes us, as a nation,
> look unbelievably naive and pathetically stupid.
>
> All cultures do not share the same mores, ethics and standards.
>
>The real world….What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa:  Trump Is Right
>
> By Karin McQuillan
>
> Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a
> community center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger,
> except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was,
> in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment"
>
>
> In plain English: s--- is everywhere.  People defecate on the open
> ground, and the feces is blown with the dust on to you, your clothes,
> your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not
> even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites that bore through
your skin and cause organ failure.
>
> Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades
> later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is
> no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations
> of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it
> are racism.
>
> Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand
> boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame
> Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his
> head not to see.
>
> I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant
> things are not true.
>
> Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy,
> meaningful lives in their own cultures' terms.  But they are not our
> terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human
> relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.
>
> As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved
> Senegal.  In fact, I was euphoric.  I quickly made friends and had an
> adopted family.  I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man.
> People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew
> you, their innermost thoughts.
>
> The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly
> obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we
> hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could
> they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can't understand
> anything in Senegal using American terms.
>
> Take something as basic as family.  Family was a few hundred people,
> extending out to second and third cousins.  All the men in one
> generation were called "father."  Senegalese are Muslim, with up to
> four wives.  Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I
> witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age
> ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.)  Sex, I was told, did
> not include kissing.  Love and friendship in marriage were Western
> ideas.  Fidelity was not a thing.  Married women would have sex for a
> few cents to have cash for the market. What I did witness every day
> was that women were worked half to death.  Wives raised the food and
> fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather
> wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded
> grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had
> conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their
> co-wives.  Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.
>
> Yemily was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.
>
> The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed “ they were unknown."  The
> value system was the exact opposite.  You were supposed to steal
> everything you can to give to your own relatives.  There are some
> Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system.  They fail.
>
> We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa.  The
> kleptocracy extends through the whole society.  My town had a medical
> clinic donated by international agencies.  The medicine was stolen by
> the medical workers and sold to the local store.  If you were sick and
> didn't have money, drop dead.  That was normal.
>
> So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father's
> Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn't
> bathing him, I wasn't surprised.  It was familiar.
>
> In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom.  Go to the post
> office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp.
> After paying the bribe, you still didn't know it if it would be mailed
> or thrown out.  That was normal.
>
> One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the
> wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from
> the medical aides, who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree
> instead of working, collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads
> so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.
> Callousness to the sick was normal.
>
> Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as
> you would have them do unto you.  It's not.  It seems natural to us
> because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture.
>
> We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It's not.  My town
> was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a
> government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business
> was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world
> bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese
> insistence on taking care of relatives.
>
> All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a
> Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he'd go to another country.
> The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for
> free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are
> not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The
> result: Everyone has nothing.
>
> The more I worked there and visited government officials doing
> absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the
> idea that a job means work.  A job is something given to you by a
> relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give
> back to your family.
>
> I couldn't wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa
> here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on
> our shores with a visa.
>
> For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace
> Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously
> my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on
> the American heritage to the next generation.
>
> African problems are made worse by our aid efforts  Senegal is full of smart, capable
> people.  They will eventually solve their own country's problems.
> They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.
>
> We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world
> immigration by the hundred million with chain migration.  They tell us
> we must end America as a white
>
> , Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation to prove we are not
> racist.  I don't need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders
> because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate
> America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.
>
> As President Trump asked, why would we do that?
>
> We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was
> happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor
> Senegalese.  I am not willing to donate my country.
>
> If ever there were an email that needed to be sent around the globe,
> this is it.  What a story this woman tells of what is actually happening in places we send our
> hard earned tax dollars.
>
> We are fools to do it.

RR#1

"YOUR MISSION, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT..."
This is not hyperbole. It's God's honest Truth.
And pressing for this outcome are individual and collective dictators working to enslave the rest of us.
We Americans are in the best position to avoid this outcome, but only if we retain our principles, our military, economic and moral strengths...and
OUR AMERICAN NATIONALISM.
WAKE UP!

What The Head Of UN Global Communications Just Said About Our Border Should Scare You

RR#2

ANOTHER POT POURRI: SHORT AND SWEET - OR NOT.

1) There have always been Rich and Poor. "The poor will always be with you". But it would certainly help everyone if the Rich were much more generous with their excess...with how they got there (ie. "Win - Lose" instead of "Win - Win"), and with how they share it. Most billionaires are absolutely stingy. Did you ever see a hearse pulling a U-Haul?
2) The use of narcotics and dangerous drugs has always been with us. But never has there been so much information and so widely disseminated. The most recent demonstration of pure Stupidity is "Vaping". 3) What about the National Debt? See the article: "It's Time To Start Worrying About The National Debt", by Valerie Ramey (in WSJ August 24-25, 2019, Review, pC5). I give up trying to understand that. I just hope that America is "too big to fail".
4) Education: always more on the abject failure of Public Education. I won't repeat myself - this time.
5) Regarding global warming. Notice that I have no quotation marks around that term. It's real. But the current "science" about its causes is distorted. A useful recent article on the subject appeared in the WSJ:
"If you Want 'Renewable Energy,' Get Ready To Dig", by Mark P. Mills.
6) If you want "gun management", since "gun control" is both illegal and dangerous, work on mental health, mental illness and effective monitoring of dangerous individuals. Americans will buy into that.

That's it for now.
