by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to

LEE IS BACK!
Well, well, well,
A voice from the past!
Who is going to listen?
Do we have to wait until November?
It may be too late by then!
Just as true today as it was when his book first came out.
He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman!
Often we need to be reminded of Iacocca's words.
Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its
death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All
The Leaders Gone?'.
Lee Iacocca says:
Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening?
Where the hell is our outrage with this so-called president? We should
be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless
leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've
got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a
ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the
taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting
mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians
say, 'Trust me, the economy is getting better.. ' Better'? You've got
to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I'll give you a
sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out, along with O a!'
You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and
maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this
The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in
handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan, Iran is completing
their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do.
And the liberal press is waving pom-poms instead of asking hard
questions. That's not the promise of the 'America' my parents and yours
traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?
I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not
outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest
'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with
crisis being the first.)
Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis.
It's easy to sit there with your thumb up your butt and talk theory. Or
to send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a
battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes
On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other
time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the
ashes.. a hell of a mess. So here's where we stand.
We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan
for leaving... but our soldiers are dying daily.
We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's
getting worse every day!
We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great
companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.
Gas prices are going to skyrocket again, and nobody in power has a
lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the
largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because
the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.
Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers' union.
Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegals amnesty
and free healthcare.
The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.
These are times that cry out for leadership.
But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the
leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are
the people of character, courage, conviction, and common sense? I may
be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point.
Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than
making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?
We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and
all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.
Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will
make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy. Deal with life.
Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can
restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed
that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to
Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more importantly, look
what Obama did about it!
Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down
the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care
problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are
eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.
I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you
to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is
everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call
them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a
Had enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here.
I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope -- I
believe in America. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living
through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some
of our worst crises: The Great Depression, World War II, the Korean
War, the Kennedy Assassination, the Vietnam War, the 1970's oil crisis,
and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.
Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and
care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future at stake!

Foundation, a think tank based in Washington D.C..

main reasons for this is the disappearance of fathers from homes,

parents with children in the United States in 2009 was 37.1%. This

of the difference, he admitted, is due to the lower level of education
among single parents. Nevertheless, when comparing singles and married
with the same level of education, the married poverty rate is still
lower. “In fact, being married has the same effect in reducing poverty

births outside marriage were to girls under the age of 18. The
three-quarters, of single moms were aged between 19 and 29.
decline in marriage and growth in out-of-wedlock births is not a
issue; it is the result of a breakdown in relationships between young
and women,” Rector explained.

poor families with children is a big cost to government, Rector
pointed out. There are dozens of means-tested welfare programs

range of services. In the 2011 fiscal year the combined cost for the

of this total was spent on single-parent families. On average, he

mothers marry the biological fathers of their children after their

even after a birth outside marriage, a subsequent marriage can be
very effective in reducing child poverty. Rector also noted that the
effects of marriage are not only economic. “Children raised by married

to the causes of single parenthood, Rector commented that the popular
view is that it is mostly due to a lack of knowledge or access to birth

The person or persons, whether fundamentalist

Crusade is to
embolden and enable moderate Muslims to attack the fundamentalist
their midst. Those "fundamentalist Muslims" are not at all
followers of the tenets of Muhammed or of their other prophets; Jesus
Abraham. They are rather standard issue despots who wish to

This is a critical distinction that must be articulated by Muslims and
non-Muslims alike, rather than by hiding behind the paralyzing
correct approach of failing to talk about this.

it must begin now - taking the place of a feckless policy that has

Yet, I’m glad I saw the
hyped-film because it was more informative
than I had thought it would be and included less propaganda than I had
predicted. If anything, it was nearly too informative as there was an
amount of information condensed into the nearly one-hour-and-a-half
documentary. Fact after fact is put forth which shows that President
definitely has many skeletons in the closet that have not been released
to the nation’s trust in him with the Oval Office.
To watch this movie and realize
– or simply be reminded of – all
that is unknown about President Obama is of concern. Much of the
has been ignored by the American media totally. When appropriately
to what is still unknown about Obama to date, one has to ask: How can

Obama to persons of suspicious-interest
due to their past actions and statements, such as former radical
Chicago educator Bill Ayers. While the media and blinded-liberals cast
facts aside, the movie does not. No, this portion of the movie is not
propaganda – it is the display of factual information about

Quite disturbing is the talk of
the United States economy in the
film. The current national debt which has increased two-fold during

dependent on the government. The “left” is aghast at this suggestion of
current economy. They actually believe that Obama is unintelligent
let this economy just happen. Ironically, it’s many of the people on
“right” who know Obama’s not stupid, and much of what has happened to
United States in the past four years is part of Obama’s plan.
How could one so-highly

ACTION AND REACTION...
As I have already observed in this section
this election season has focused all media outlets on important
than on providing the usual tripe for the entertainment...rather than
enlightenment...of their public. That's doubly good news, since
provides easy opportunities for cross-reading, vital to getting a clear
of what's going on.
Whatever you read on a regular
advice is that daily review of the Wall Street Journal is a critical
to the routinely slanted output of the very liberal main media.
following articles, found in just one edition of the WSJ (Friday, Sept.
2012) provide just one example of the scope, depth and insight
many subjects far afield from Finances. To these, I will add my
"IS ANYBODY THERE? DOES
CARE?". We will soon see.
- "Stirring Up The Melting Pot",
pA3. Without mentioning New London, Ct., this describes what is
going on in many of our smaller cities: an exploding diversity of
residents...a healthy although often challenging development.
- "The Shale
Revolution: What Could Go Wrong?" (pB1). Evidentally,
a great deal.
- "France Is
Still Waiting For Hollande" (pA15). Talk
about "putting lipstick on a pig". The Socialist disaster called
France is starting to have "buyer's remorse" over its recently
purchased socialist President. There is a clear lesson here for
Americans as we approach our own moment of decision over the nation's
2" (pA14). A valuable executive summary on
Barack Obama. "Obama was honest
when he said he wanted to remake America". This
should be read in context with the latest offering of that great
favorite of mine, Charles Krauthammer: "Empathy Gap
Keeps Obama's Hope Alive", in The Day (www.theday.com) Saturday, Sept. 8,
Thaw In The Arctic, Greenland" (pA2). Talk
about "the canary in the mine".
