RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...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.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION.  GS

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WW II MOVIE STARS?

In contrast to the ideals, opinions and feelings of today's "Hollywood" the real actors of yester-year loved the United States. They had both class and integrity. With the advent of World War II many of our actors went to fight rather than stand and rant against this country we all love.

They gave up their wealth, position and fame to become service men & women, many as simple "enlisted men."

This page lists but a few, but from this group of only 18 men came over 70 medals in honor of their valor, spanning from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguish Service Crosses, Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honor.

So remember; while the "Entertainers of 2007" have been in all of the news media lately I would like to remind the people of what the entertainers of
1943 were doing, (64 years ago).

Most of these brave men have since passed on.

"Real Hollywood Heroes"

Alec Guinness (Star Wars) operated a British Royal Navy landing craft on D-Day.

James Doohan ("Scotty" on Star Trek) landed in Normandy with the U. S. Army on D-Day.

Donald Pleasance (The Great Escape) really was an R. A. F. pilot who was
shot down, held prisoner and tortured by the Germans.

David Niven was a Sandhurst graduate and Lt. Colonel of the British
Commandos in Normandy.

James Stewart Entered the Army Air Force as a private and worked his way to
the rank of Colonel. During World War II, Stewart served as a bomber pilot,
his service record crediting him with leading more than 20 missions over
Germany, and taking part in hundreds of air strikes during his tour of duty.

Stewart earned the Air Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, France's Croix

de Guerre,and 7 Battle Stars during World War II. In peace time, Stewart
continued to be an active member of the Air Force as a reservist, reaching
the rank of Brigadier General before retiring in the late 1950s.

Clark Gable (Mega-Movie Star when war broke out). Although he was beyond the

draft age at the time the U.S. entered WW II, Clark Gable enlisted as a
private in the AAF on Aug. 12, 1942 at Los Angeles. He attended the
Officers' Candidate School at
Miami Beach, Fla. and graduated as a second lieutenant on Oct. 28, 1942. He
then attended aerial gunnery school and in Feb. 1943
he was assigned to the 351st Bomb Group at Polebrook where flew operational
missions over Europe in B-17s. Capt. Gable returned to the U.S. in Oct. 1943

and was relieved from active duty as a major on Jun. 12, 1944 at his own
request, since he was over-age for combat.

Charlton Heston was an Army Air Corps Sergeant in Kodiak.

Ernest Borgnine was a U. S. Navy Gunners Mate 1935-1945.

Charles Durning was a U. S. Army Ranger at Normandy earning a Silver Star
and awarded the Purple Heart.

Charles Bronson was a tail gunner in the Army Air Corps, more specifically
on B-29's in the 20th Air Force out of Guam, Tinian, and Saipan.

George C. Scott was a decorated U. S. Marine.

Eddie Albert (Green Acres TV) was awarded a Bronze Star for his heroic
action as a U. S. Naval officer aiding Marines at the horrific battle on the
island of Tarawa in the Pacific Nov. 1943.

Brian Keith served as a US. Marine rear gunner in several actions against
the Japanese on Rabal in the Pacific.

Lee Marvin was a U.S. Marine on Saipan during the Marianas campaign when he
was wounded earning the Purple Heart.

John Russell: In 1942, he enlisted in the Marine Corps where he received a
battlefield commission and was wounded and highly decorated for valor at
Guadalcanal.

Robert Ryan was a U. S. Marine who served with the O. S. S. in Yugoslavia.

Tyrone Power (an established movie star when Pearl Harbor was bombed) joined

the U.S. Marines, was a pilot flying supplies into, and wounded Marines out
of, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

Audie Murphy, little 5'5" tall 110 pound guy from Texas who played cowboy
parts: Most Decorated serviceman of WWII and earned: Medal of Honor,
Distinguished Service Cross, 2 Silver Star Medals, Legion of Merit, 2 Bronze

Star Medals with "V", 2 Purple Hearts, U.S. Army Outstanding Civilian
Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, 2 Distinguished Unit Emblems, American
Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with One
Silver Star, Four Bronze Service Stars (representing nine campaigns) and one

Bronze Arrowhead (representing assault landing at Sicily and Southern
France) World War II Victory Medal Army of Occupation Medal with Germany
Clasp, Armed Forces Reserve Medal, Combat Infantry Badge, Marksman Badge
with Rifle Bar, Expert Badge with Bayonet Bar, French Fourragere in Colors
of the Croix de Guerre, French Legion of Honor, Grade of Chevalier, French
Croix de Guerre With Silver Star, French Croix de Guerre with Palm, Medal of

Liberated France, Belgian Croix de Guerre 1940 Palm.

So how do you feel the real heroes of the silver screen acted when compared
to the hollywonks today who spew out anti American drivel as they bite the
hand that feeds them? Can you imagine these stars of yester-year saying they
hate our flag, making anti-war speeches, marching in anti-American parades and saying they
hate our president?  I thought not . . . neither did I!

"They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk:
Why you ain't,
Where you is,
What he drive,
Where he stay,
Where he work,
Who you be...

And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.

And then I heard the father talk.

Everybody knows it's important to speak English

except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor

with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.

In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living. People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education, and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around.

The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.

These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids. $500 sneakers for what ? ?

And they won't spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.

I am talking about these people who cry when ! their s on is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was 2 ? ?

Where were you when he was 12 ? ?

Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn't know that he had a pistol ? ?

And where is the father ? ? Or who is his father ?

People putting their clothes on backward:
Isn't that a sign of something gone wrong?

People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn't that a sign of something ?

Or are you waiting for Jesus to pull his pants up ?

Isn't it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?

What part of Africa did this come from??

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don't know a thing about Africa .

With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap, and all of them are in jail.

Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person's problem.

We have got to take the neighborhood back.

People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different 'husbands' -- or men or whatever you call them now.

We have millionaire football players who cannot read.

We have million-dollar basketball players who can't write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job. Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.

We have to start holding each other to a higher standard.

We cannot blame the white people any longer."

BARABING.

Difference Between a Republican and a Democrat

Fred Thompson and Hillary were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person..

The Republican, Fred Thompson, gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He then took $20 out of his

pocket and gave it to the homeless person.

Hillary was very impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she decided to help. She walked over to the homeless person and gave him

directions to the welfare office. She then reached into Thompson's pocket and got out $20. She kept $15 for her administrative fees and gave the

homeless person $5.

Now, do you understand the difference?

No common denominator to the following set of comments.
That's enough for now.  It is Sunday, after all.

GS

THURSDAY through SUNDAY, October 18 through 21, 2007

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. 
 

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.  And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a crutch, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship Nick and Jessica and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him?  I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.   But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke;  it's not funny, it's intended to get you  thinking.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Katrina)  Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.

She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our  schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.  And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.  Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.  Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. 
 
My Best Regards.

Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

BARABING!  America owes its independence in part to France.  Now, do we love to hate them?  Or do we hate to love them?  GS

Here's a couple you may not have heard yet.
    
Back when Colin Powell was Sec of State he was being interviewed in England by a group of international reporters when a French reporter asked him: "Does America expect to retain control of any of the territory you have conquered recently?"
Powell slowly responded with: "Yes. We will surely retain control of some territory It will be like the territory we retained in France after World War II. If you will check you will see that we retained an area of about six feet by three ft for each American lost in France who is buried there."

____________________________________________________________

Then there was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American.
During a break one of the French engineers came back into the room saying "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?"
A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:
"Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck.. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?"  Once again, dead silence.
_____________________________________________________
       
A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies.

At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
   
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, 'whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English.'? He then asked, 'Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?'
     
Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied 'Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German.'
   
You could have heard a pin drop!!

Is there anyone in this gang that you would feel comfortable with leading our country?  GS

In a Democratic debate, rivals assail Clinton

By Steve Holland and Ellen Wulfhorst Thu Sep 27, 1:31 AM ET

HANOVER, New Hampshire (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidates pounced on rival Hillary Clinton for her positions on Iraq and Iran in a debate on Wednesday as they sought to undercut her status as the campaign front-runner.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, a distant third place in most national polls and needing a breakthrough performance, led the attack against Clinton on the campus at Dartmouth College.

With the Democratic left-wing demanding a hasty U.S. timetable out of Iraq, Edwards criticized the New York senator for not ruling out that U.S. troops might engage in some combat missions in Iraq if she were to win the 2008 election.

"To me that's a continuation of the war," Edwards said. "Combat missions mean that the war is continuing. I believe the war needs to be brought to an end."

Edwards' broadside put Clinton on the defensive at a time when she is enjoying a comfortable lead in opinion polls and trying to appear above the fray. But there was no sign that the debate would prompt a major shake-up in the Democratic field.

"There may be a continuing counter-terrorism mission," she said, while adding that "the vast majority" of American troops would be out of Iraq by the end of her prospective first term in 2013.

The cross-fire on the campus of Dartmouth College came at the first debate of the critical autumn season leading up to the early voting contests in January ahead of the November 2008 election to replace President George W. Bush.

Iraq was a dominant theme of the debate as Democrats seek a way to force Bush to change his war strategy, which may leave as many as 100,000 troops there by the time the next president is inaugurated in January 2009.

IRAN'S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD

Iran occupied plenty of attention as well. Washington accuses Iran of trying to develop a nuclear bomb and supplying weapons to Iraqi guerrillas fighting the U.S. forces. Tehran denies the charges.

Edwards criticized Clinton for voting earlier in the day in Washington to approve a nonbinding motion calling on the State Department to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard as "a foreign terrorist organization," which Edwards said was a potential first step toward war against Iran.

"I have no intention of giving George Bush the authority to take the first step on a road to war with Iran," Edwards said, pointedly mentioning that two other candidates on stage, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden and Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd, had voted against the measure.

Long-shot candidate Mike Gravel jumped on Clinton as well, saying, "I am ashamed of you, Hillary, for voting for it."

After a loud laugh at the often-comical Gravel, Clinton defended her vote.

She said it would allow the U.S. government to designate the Revolutionary Guard "as a terrorist organization which gives us the options to be able to impose sanctions on the primary leaders to try to begin to put some teeth into all this talk about dealing with Iran."

OBAMA HOLDS HIS PUNCHES

Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, in second place in the polls despite leading in fund-raising, held his punches against Clinton.

He reiterated his position that he would engage in direct talks with Iran, a pledge Clinton has said shows Obama is too inexperienced to be president.

"We've got to talk to our enemies and not just our friends," Obama said.

Biden suggested Clinton's experience as first lady in the administration of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, when she tried unsuccessfully in the 1990s to reform health care, would hamper her effectiveness as a U.S. president.

"I'm not suggesting it's Hillary's fault. I think it's a reality that it's more difficult, because there's a lot of very good things that come with all the great things that President Clinton did, but there's also a lot of the old stuff that comes back," Biden said.

As Clinton fixed a chilly stare on him, Biden hurriedly added: "When I say old stuff, I'm referring to policy, policy."

BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN AND VERY, VERY SCARY!  IT IS WELL WORTH YOUR TIME.  GS

MIDDLE EAST IMPERATIVE BY
JIM CASH, Brig. Gen., USAF, Ret.

I wrote recently about the war in Iraq and the larger war  against radical Islam, eliciting a number of responses. Let me try  and put this conflict in proper perspective.

Understand, the current battle we are engaged in is much bigger  that just Iraq. What happens in the next year will affect this  country and how our kids and grandkids live throughout their  lifetime, and beyond. Radical Islam has been attacking the West  since the seventh century. They have been defeated in the past and  decimated to the point of taking hundreds of years to recover. But  they can never be totally defeated. Their birth rates are so far  beyond civilized world rates that in time they recover and attempt
to dominate again. There are eight terror-sponsoring countries that make up the grand threat to the West. Two, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan just need firm pressure from the West to make major reforms. They need to decide who they are really going to support and commit to that  support. That answer is simple. They both will support who they think will hang in there until the end, and win. We are not sending very good signals in that direction right now, thanks to the Democrats.

The other six, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, North Korea and Libya will require regime change or a major policy shift. Now, let's look more closely.

Afghanistan and Iraq have both had regime changes, but are being  fueled by outsiders from Syria and Iran. We have scared Gaddafi's  pants off, and he has given up his quest for nuclear weapons, so I  don't think Libya is now a threat. North Korea (the non-Islamic threat) can be handled diplomatically by buying them off. They are starving. That leaves Syria and Iran. Syria is like a frightened puppy. Without the support of Iran they will join the stronger side. So where does that leave us? Sooner, or later, we are going to be forced to confront Iran, and it better be before they gain nuclear capability.

In 1989 I served as a Command Director inside the Cheyenne  Mountain complex located in Colorado Springs, Colorado for almost  three years. My job there was to observe (through classified means)
every missile shot anywhere in the world and assess if it was a  threat to the US or Canada. If any shot was threatening to either  nation I had only minutes to advise the President, as he had only  minutes to respond. I watched Iran and Iraq shoot missiles at each  other every day, and all day long, for months. They killed hundreds  of thousand of their people. Know why? They were fighting for  control of the Middle East and that enormous oil supply.

At that time, they were preoccupied with their internal problems  and could care less about toppling the west. Oil prices were  fairly stable and we could not see an immediate threat. Well, the  worst part of what we have done as a nation in Iraq is to do away  with the military capability of one of those nations. Now, Iran  has a clear field to dominate the Middle East, since Iraq is no  longer a threat to them. They have turned their attention to the  only other threat to their dominance, the United States. They are  convinced they will win, because the United States is so divided,  and the Democrats (who now control Congress and may control the  Presidency in 2008) have openly said we are pulling out.

Do you have any idea what will happen if the entire Middle East  turns their support to Iran, which they will obviously do if we  pull out? It is not the price of oil we will have to worry about.  Oil will not be made available to this country at any price. I  personally would vote for any presidential candidate who did what
JFK did with the space program---declare a goal to bring this  country to total energy independence in a decade.

Yes, it is about oil. The economy in this country will totally  die if that Middle East supply is cut off right now. It will not  be a recession. It will be a depression that will make 1929 look  like the "good-old-days".

The bottom line here is simple. If Iran is forced to fall in  line, the fighting in Iraq will end over night, and the nightmare  will be over. One way or another, Iran must be forced to join  modern times and the global community. It may mean a real war---if  so, now is the time, before we face a nuclear Iran with the  capacity to destroy Israel and begin a new ice age. I urge you to  read the book "END GAME" by two of our best Middle East experts,  true American patriots and retired military generals, Paul Vallely  and Tom McInerney. They are our finest, and totally honest in their  assessment of why victory in the Middle East is so important, and  how it can be won. Proceeds for the book go directly to memorial  fund for our fallen soldiers who served the country during the war  on terror. You can find that book by going to the internet through  Stand-up America at www.ospreyradio.us or www.rightalk.com.

On the other hand, we have several very angry retired generals  today, who evidently have not achieved their lofty goals, and  insist on ranting and raving about the war. They are wrong, and  doing the country great harm by giving a certain political party  reason to use them as experts to back their anti-war claims.

You may be one of those who believe nothing could ever be  terrible enough to support our going to war. If that is the case I  should stop here, as that level of thinking approaches mental  disability in this day and age. It is right up there with alien  abductions and high altitude seeding through government aircraft
contrails. I helped produced those contrails for almost 30 years,  and I can assure you we were not seeding the atmosphere. The human  race is a war-like population, and if a country is not willing to  protect itself, it deserves the consequences.

Now, my last comments will get to the nerve. They will be on  politics. I am not a Republican. And, George Bush has made enough  mistakes as President to insure my feelings about that for the rest
of my life. However, the Democratic Party has moved so far left,  they have made me support those farther to the right. I am a  conservative who totally supports the Constitution of this country.  The only difference between the United States and the South  American, third world, dictator infested and ever-changing South
American governments, is our US Constitution.

This Republic (note I did not say Democracy) is the longest  standing the world has ever known, but it is vulnerable. It would  take so little to change it through economic upheaval. There was a  time when politicians could disagree, but still work together. We  are past that time, and that is the initial step toward the  downfall of our form of government. I think that many view  Bush-hating as payback time. The Republicans hated the Clintons  and now the Democrats hate Bush. So, both parties are putting
their hate toward willingness to do anything for political  dominance to include lying and always taking the opposite stand  just for the sake of being opposed. JUST HOW GOOD IS THAT FOR OUR COUNTRY?

In my lifetime, after serving in uniform for President's  Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush I have a  pretty good feel for which party supported our military, and what  military life was like under each of their terms. And, let me  assure you that times were best under the Republicans. Service  under Jimmy Carter was devastating for all branches of the  military. And, Ronald Regan was truly a salvation.
 
You can choose to listen to enriched newscasters, and foolish people like John Murtha (he is no war hero), Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Michael  Moore, Jane Fonda, Harry Reid, Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Ted
Kennedy, and on-and-on to include the true fools in Hollywood if you like. If you do, your conclusions will be totally wrong.

The reason that I write, appear on radio talk shows, and do  everything I can to denounce those people is simple. THEY ARE  PUTTING THEIR THIRST FOR POLITICAL POWER AND QUEST FOR VICTORY IN 2008 ABOVE WHAT IS BEST FOR THIS COUNTRY.
 
 
I cannot abide that. Pelosi clearly defied the Logan Act by going to Syria, which should have lead to imprisonment of three years and a heavy fine. Jane Fonda did more to prolong the Vietnam War longer than any other human being (as acknowledged by Ho Chi Minh in his writing before he died). She truly should have been indicted for treason, along with her radical husband Tom Hayden, and forced to pay the consequences.

This country has started to soften by not enforcing its laws,  which is another indication of a Republic about to fall.
 
All Democrats, along with the Hollywood elite, are sending us headlong into a total defeat in the Middle East, which will finally give Iran total dominance in the region. A lack of oil in the near future will be the final straw that dooms this Republic.
 
However, if we refuse to let this happen and really get serious about an  energy self-sufficiency program, this can be avoided.

I am afraid, however, that we are going in the opposite direction. If we elect Hillary Clinton and a Democrat controlled congress, and they carry through with allowing Iran to take control of the Middle East, continue to refuse development of nuclear energy, refuse to allow drilling for new oil, and continue to do nothing but oppose everything Bush, it will be over in terms of what we view as the good life in the USA.

Now, do I think that all who do not support the war are un-American---of course not. They just do not understand the importance of total victory in that region. Another failure of George Bush is his inability to explain to the American people why we are there, and why we MUST win. By the way, it is not a war. The war was won four years ago. It is martial law that is under attack by Iranian and Syrian outside influences, and there is a difference.

So, what do I believe? What is the bottom line? I will simply  say that the Democratic Party has fielded the foulest, most power  hungry, anti-country, self absorbed group of individuals that I  have observed in my lifetime. Our educational system is partially  to blame for allowing the mass of America to be taken in by this
group. George Bush has done the best he can with the disabilities  that he possesses. A President must communicate with the people.  And, I would tell you that Desert Storm spoiled the people. Bush
Senior's 100-hour war convinced the people that technology has  progressed to the point that wars could be fought with no  casualties and won in very short periods of time. I remember  feeling at the time, that this was a tragedy for the US military.  To win wars, you must put boots on the ground. When you put boots
on the ground, soldiers are going to die. A President must make  the war decision wisely, and insure that the cause is right before  using his last political option.
 
However,
 
CONTROLLING IRAN AND DEMOCRATIZING THE MIDDLE EAST IS THE ONLY CHOICE IF WE ARE HELL-BENT ON DEPENDING ON THEM FOR OUR FUTURE ENERGY NEEDS.

House #1 A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas.  In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a  year.  The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, (which last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home.  This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area, either. It's in the South.



House #2 Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university.  This house  incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can  provide.  The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest.  A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer.  The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system.  Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern.  Wastewater from showers, sinks and  toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the  cistern.  The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house.  Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the  surrounding rural landscape.    

HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville, Tennessee; it is the abode of the "environmentalist" Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on  a ranch near Crawford, Texas; it is the residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.  

(It was Gore who released the documentary film, "An Inconvenient Truth", on the issue of global warming!)

Yes, I'm still here.  But, to borrow the message that air raid wardens periodically gave to their wards in London bomb shelters during "The Blitz": "Ladies and Gentlemen, the news is...there's no news".  Or at least nothing that I have not already addressed. 
But please "stay tuned".
