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.

THE FLORIDA SCHOOL SHOOTINGS TODAY:
"Rapid Response"...and "the usual suspects".
Once again, families mourn and politicians wring their hands.
I have addressed this subject in the past. Nothing has changed.
There are too many "causes" and "substantial contributing factors" to enumerate here. But, as noted only by a foreigner - the former British Prime Minister" on the Bret Baier Fox News show today - the root cause is what has become of large swaths of American society in recent decades under the influence of the "secular progressives"...aka The Left.
It will take at least one generation, if not more, to staunch the desperation and bleeding of those tens of millions already affected and to stop the spread of this virulent infection - and only if The Left is thoroughly defeated.
Meanwhile, all the usual discussion about "gun control" fails to address the main reason why the vast majority of Americans cling to their guns. They are not mainly "hunters" or "nuts". They are normal, common folks who have lost their confidence in the direction of this country and in the safety of their freedoms - and who are hedging their bet for a possible conflict, either with corrupt authority or with fellow inhabitants of this land. That's why!
Any effort to address reasonable "gun control" must bear that in mind - or it will fail as usual. We are back to why the Founders passed the Second Amendment.
God Bless the deceased, the injured and their families.
And God Help Us All.

Ms. Pelosi is a saint.

Last Saturday afternoon in Washington, D.C. an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic Cathedral in D.C. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's Mass, and asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.
 
The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over some of Pelosi's views." Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to you if you'll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint."
 
The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the Church can use the money, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon." As Pelosi's aide promised, Nancy Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Ms. Pelosi was present.
 
The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Ms. Pelosi's presence is probably an honor to some, the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other issues. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington and in California . The woman is simply not to be trusted."
 
The Cardinal concluded. "But, when compared with Hillary Clinton, Ms. Pelosi is a saint."

Thanks. And don't hesitate to give me more feedback on any subject, whether you agree or disagree. That's how we all continue to learn.
Love to all.

Hi Uncle George

Good post. I especially agree with Diagnosis bullet point number 3. To reduce drug use those things must be reversed. However, I think one thing that will help is ending drug prohibition. If drugs were legalized profit margins in the business would plummet since the drugs are essentially a commodity, and it wouldn’t be dangerous any more to grow/supply/use them. They could be regulated and taxed similar to alcohol (although I’m not really for the singling out for special taxation of any product or service). It would also have the great benefit of keeping thousands of inner city youth out of jails, which are the incubators for lifetime criminals, would put them into the market economy like the rest of us putting them on a path to a better life, and would drastically increase the safety of people living in the inner cities. The lower prices of drugs under such a scenario would not affect demand significantly because demand for drugs is pretty inelastic. Those who are suffering will do anything and pay anything to get them already. For those who continue to use them, the quality and safety of the drug supply would be improved, reducing deaths. In fact, the money saved from not having the “drug war” could be used to improve treatment and awareness too. In addition, the safety and lives of citizens of countries currently racked by drug cartels, such as Mexico, Colombia and Venezuela, would be greatly improved.

Yes, there are risks. But the risk/reward is too great not to do it, IMO. Our one experiment with something similar - ending alcohol prohibition - was extremely successful.

As always, I appreciate your thought-provoking posts. Please keep them coming.

Chris

REGARDING THE STATE OF THE UNIONS:
NATIONAL, STATE, AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES.
Enough printer's ink has flowed in recent days to discuss the economics of running governments. Crucial to that calculus is the "mother's milk of politics": money, preferably a lot of money unencumbered by responsible obligations expected of the people.
At the Federal level, the recent results have been much more promising than elsewhere. Very important needs (debits) have been funded while income (assets) has been addressed in the form of the recent Tax Reform legislation and the already clear positive effects on the economy. Other important issues, especially regarding a comprehensive Immigration Policy, have had to wait - hopefully not for long.
At the State level, with Connecticut a "wholly owned subsidiary" of the Public Employees unions, the prognosis is much more guarded for this seriously ill patient who is bleeding profusely. Out-going Governor Malloy offered a typical Democratic treatment program: feeding and bleeding at the same time, and never getting the  patient out of bed. What did Albert Einstein say about repeating and repeating the same actions and expecting different results? That's what happens when, regardless of the label, the people endorse the same political party for 40 years? IDIOCY.

"AND IN THE CHURCH AS IN THE GOVERNMENT, THE SCORCHED-EARTH TACTICS OF ULTRACONSERVATIVES OFTEN GIVES THEM A SWAY DISPROPORTIONATE TO THEIR ACTUAL NUMBERS".
This is a direct quote from an article by Frank Bruni, entitled
"The Scariest Catholic In America", NYTimes Feb 4, 2018, Sunday Review, p3.
It addresses the hysterical reaction of some ultra-conservative "Catholics" to the issue of according any Christian charity to persons whose sexuality may be in question for themselves ("L.G.B.T.). Fortunately, two leaders of the Church are clearly quoted as decrying such un-Christian actions.
"Meanwhile, back at the ranch", Pope Francis seems to have retreated to nibbling at the edges of teachings of the Magisterium, despite his being the Teacher in Chief. What about divorced and re-married Catholics' access to the Sacrament? What about the ridiculous "Unitive Function of Sex" for a committed married couple? What about non-abortifacient contraception for those same couples? What about scientific - and Christian - understanding for persons whose sexuality is not clear...to themselves or to science?
What about all of that? We need answers, Your Holiness...not obfuscation.

MORE UNREPORTED NEWS

On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees. The report said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary, instead he donated it to an amazing cause! (see below). The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million. Here are some other key findings:
There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies. *Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
 
*However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking. Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It's so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!
Oh, and where's the media coverage of this? Oh that's right, they don't cover anything good that the President does.

ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET.
I have relatively minor holdings in the stock market.
My "holdings" are my family investments in Education: 7 Bachelor's Degrees, 5 Master's Degrees and 3 Doctorate Degrees.
Beyond that, a few observations.
1) When J.P.Morgan was asked "What will the Market do?", his reply was "It will Fluctuate, my boy.  It will Fluctuate".
2) "In the Market, Bulls will win, Bears will win; Pigs will not win."
3) The Golden Rule for Investing: Diversify!
4) Look at the percentage drop, not the numerical drop.
5) It tells you something about the priorities of some Americans when the stock market decline - in which less than 50% of Americans are invested - is seen as terrible because all other economic indicators are rising, including wages, profits, investments, consumer confidence....
6) What is terrible is the continuing decline of American Education, at all levels. "Is anybody there? Does anybody care?"

MORE FAKE NEWS - OR AT LEAST INCOMPLETE, THIS TIME FROM ITALY.
From general reading, and particularly from reports from native Italians who return to their homeland frequently, I learn that Leftists there have much greater sway in daily life than here in America - so far.
A very recent example is the reportage about a bad incident in Macerata, Italy.
"African Immigrants Shot In Italian Town", by Eric Slyvers, WSJ Feb. 5, 2018, World News, pA6.
The story stresses immigration violence, hatred, etc. Nowhere in the story is the fact that the shooter was reacting against an immigrant who had just been arrested for allegedly attacking, killing and dismembering a teenage girl inhabitant of that town. He had tried to gain access to the accused, without success.
Does this justify the action? No. Does it put it in proper context? Yes. Can such truth-telling be found in the media today...even at times in the WSJ? Hardly.

REGARDING THE CURRENT FLU EPIDEMIC.
1) Immunizations of all kinds are the most effective and cheapest form of medical care. To refrain from or to neglect getting immunized is STUPID; and for any parents and their children is IRRESPONSIBLE. Regarding the annual Flu vaccines, "egg allergy" is no longer considered an impediment to getting the shot. And you can still get the 2017-2018 Flu shot now.

2) The characteristics of this year's Flu epidemic resemble those of the Pandemic of 1918: the young and healthy are more likely to get seriously ill and to die. That is probably because the Inflammatory part of our Immune System is a BLUNT INSTRUMENT, prone to over-reacting to an invader, thus at times being itself the cause of death rather than the infection. The obvious example is SEPSIS. Therefore, make sure your physician considers high-dose Steroids in case of serious or grave illness.

3) Any "cold" is not "just a cold". It is a viremia, involving the entire body and capable of causing serious illness besides the well-known problems. Thus, treat a "cold" aggressively from the outset. My patients are given a "Cold Regimen" and are urged to use it. If you wish a copy of that Regimen, without thereby establishing a physician-patient relationship, send me a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request. Meanwhile, an important note: "Z-PAK" DOES NOT WORK FOR RESPIRATORY TRACT ILLNESSES.

DEAR READER,
you are familiar with "Around The World..."
Here is another favorite, of mine at least:
POT POURRI: NEWS AND OPINION IN SMALL AND SPICY MORSELS.

1) A very erudite exposition entitled "Islam In Global Politics: A Civilizational Crisis?", by Clive Kessler, in http://acdemocracy.org, 2/2/2018.
Let's cut to the chase: a) Muslims have to decide whether they want to join the rest of the world in these recent and current centuries - or not;
b) Israel is Forever - and Jerusalem is its Capital;
c) administrative assistance in the management of East Jerusalem is desirable and likely;
d) a "Palestinian State" in Gaza is desirable and likely, with no "right of return" unless consistent with that geography;
e) Egypt - and increasingly other Arab / Muslim are getting along with Israel. It's called Reality and Self-Interest.
2) Medical Malpractice Reform. Stop nibbling around the edges. Take MM out of the Civil Court and trial attorney system and establish Health Courts, as is the case in Patent and Bankruptcy Courts - where experts hold sway.
3) Connecticut Supreme Court's bad decision regarding Public Schools and their support. It is abundantly clear that our incestuous legislatures have failed for many decades in a Constitutional obligation. That requires the Judiciary to intervene on Constitutional grounds.
"Can You Hear Me Now?"
4) The Armenian Genocide. When does the world and the U.S. acknowledge and condemn the Turkish action? Or do we wait for a Kurdish genocide, already beginning and by the same perpetrators?
See " Will Trump Tell The Truth About The Armenian Genocide", by Robert M. Morgenthau, in WSJ Jan. 26, 2018, Opinion, pA15.
5) Screen Time for kids. I'm not convinced. Go out and play!
See "Not All Screen Time Is Equal", by Christopher Mims, in WSJ Jan. 22, 2018, B1.
6) "The Case For Tactical U.S. Nukes", by Matthew Kroenig, WSJ Jan. 25, 2018, Opinion, pA15.

Of course! With the proliferation of nuclear weapons among too many nations (and including North Korea, if we are realistic) since the days of the bilateral Cold War,
"limited" destruction is the only credible deterrent to avoid the end of the world. In fact, it was a given to us, medically supporting the U.S. Third Armored Division in Germany facing 20 Soviet divisions 90 miles away at the Fulda Gap, (1960-1962) that we would use tactical nuclear weapons to avoid being overrun. Folks, think of this: America run by "Leftists" could surrender to a belligerent Russia in the face of a threat or actuality of great tactical nuclear destruction short of Armageddon, just as the British Government immediately before Churchill wanted to do just that when faced with Hitler's conventional might. Wake up everyone, and look at the Facts!
That's It For Now.

A Must read from Charles Krauthammer...New York Post

NOTE; Krauthammer is a well-respected conservative and is NOT a Trump fan or supporter!

An article from the New York Post:

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president's administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to Organizing for Action.

OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished. Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."

OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, "The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House."

Sperry writes that, "The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide... The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy!

THANK YOU, SUSAN...AND ESPECIALLY FOR
10 GREAT YEARS AT THE CUSTOM HOUSE.
GEORGE.

Forgot to mention that 'Little Lonnie' won his division in tennis and will be in the Special Olympics again this July in Seattle. In the last games he won a gold medal.
For that matter, Jennifer Hillhouse has two grandchildren who will represent the US in S. Korea. Their sport is cross country skiing.
Congratulations!!!

Hello everyone. It was a great day. I wanted to share these photos with you.
We had four big events: 1.) Rogovin Movers were here to reposition the lighthouse lens, 2.) took George to lunch to celebrate his 85th birthday, 3.) hosted a reception for the Homeless Hospitality Center's volunteers, and 4.) hosted a wedding for our own Gwendolyn Bosco (past NLMS secretary) and Lonnie Braxton (current honorary trustee)!

Special thanks to Linda, Margaret, Christina, & Bill who put in extra hours to host HHC guests.
The HHC volunteers live in NL and I have never heard so many people say that they did not know this building was a museum! It makes me think Margaret is right & perhaps we should not charge NL residents admission. We also have to settle the name issue so we can get some clear signage our front (Andrew's suggestion).
The only pad thing today is that the HHC's large coffee pot kept tripping out circuits (& they are not labeled).
Cadets in Saturday to do some painting...
All best,  --Susan

Lord's Prayer, by a 15-year-old school kid who got an A+ for this entry (TOTALLY AWESOME)!
 
The Lord's Prayer is not allowed in most U.S. Public schools any more.
A kid in Minnesota wrote the following NEW School Prayer:
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
 
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
 
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.
 
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
 
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong.
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong
 
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
 
         Amen
 
If you aren't ashamed to do this, Please pass this on.
Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me,
I will be ashamed of you before my Father"!
 
AWESOME

ABORTION: THE INTENTIONAL DESTRUCTION OF A HUMAN LIFE,
AT ANY TIME FROM CONCEPTION TO BIRTH.
Compare and contrast these three statements:
1) the letter to The Day by John Goodrich, Feb. 1, 2018 (web address below)
2) the article in www.ctmirror.org by Ana Radelat, Jan. 29, 2018, entitled "Blumenthal, Murphy Help Sink Abortion Bill";
3) the recent Letter from the Bishop of Norwich to the Faithful and to the Public.
This is not a "Catholic" issue. It is not a "religious" issue. It is certainly not a "women's health issue". It is an existential human issue, regarding which every human being is personally responsible. Personally responsible.
