This is a new section. It will
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
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
campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will
be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick",
by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.
That's all I promise.

- The destruction of all notes relating to that autopsy by the
person who performed it.
- The refusal of the government, including the Warren
Commission, to release the photos taken of that autopsy.
- The refusal of Chief Justice Warren, the Chairman of the
formal investigating body, to allow substantive testimony by Mrs.
Kennedy. This, and numerous other decisions by Warren , leading
to a serious and prolonged division among the members of his
commission, including then - inspector Arlen Spector.
- The refusal of the CIA and of J. Edgar Hoover's FBI to
release its independent findings, at least in part an effort to avoid
criticism for not monitoring the activities of Oswald, whom they had
been following for months.

President, both here and abroad. President Obama is a

Why ObamaCare is a
Wayne Allyn Root
Published October 21, 2013
There are two major
political parties in America. I'm a member of the naïve, stupid,
one. I'm a Republican.
How stupid is the GOP?
They still don't get it.
I told them 5 years ago,
2 books ago, a national bestseller ago ("The Ultimate Obama Survival
Guide"), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that ObamaCare
never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare
lower the debt, or expand the economy.
The GOP needs to stop
calling ObamaCare a "trainwreck." That means it's a mistake, or
accident. That means it's a gigantic flop, or failure. It's NOT.
Message to the GOP: This
isn't a game. This isn't tiddly-winks. This is a serious, purposeful
hijack America and destroy capitalism. This is a brilliant, cynical,
purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring
capitalism. It's not a failure. It's Obama's grand success. It's not a
"trainwreck," ObamaCare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to
bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to
Obama's hero and mentor
was Saul Alinsky -- a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism.
Alinksky's stated advice was to call the other guy "a terrorist" to
hide your own intentions. Alinsky's advice is to scream that the other
"ruining America," while you are the one actually plotting the
destruction of America. To claim again and again in every sentence of
speech that you are "saving the middle class," while you are busy
wiping out the middle class. The GOP is so stupid they can't see it.
no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack.
The tell-tale sign isn't
the disastrous start to ObamaCare. Or the devastating effect the new
having on the economy. Or the death of full-time jobs. Or the
debt. Or the dramatic increases in health insurance rates. Or the 70%
doctors now thinking of retiring- bringing on a healthcare crisis of
unimaginable proportions. Forget all that. The real sign that this is a
purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration
Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and
wants to stop ObamaCare "terrorists."
There's the clue. Even
the clueless GOP should be able to see that. They are calling the
people terrorists. These are the patriots who believe in the
patriots who believe exactly what the Founding Fathers believed, the
who want to take power away from corrupt politicians who have put
trillion in debt. That's because they are Saul Alinsky-ing the GOP. The
trying to purposely hurt America, capitalism, and the middle class are
the patriots by a terrible name to fool, confuse, and distract the
ObamaCare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success. Stop calling it a
failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all
1. ObamaCare was
intended to bring about the Marxist dream -- redistribution of wealth.
Rich people, small
business owners, and the middle class are being robbed so that the
money can be
redistributed to poor people (who vote for Democrats). Think about it.
you're rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own health
(at much higher rates) AND 40 million other people's costs too (through
tax increases). So you're stuck paying for both bills. You are left
Those who get these subsidies vote for Democrats who brought them

intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on
Think about it. Even Obama's IRS predicts that health insurance for a
American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle
Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or
People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K can't possibly hope to spend
$20K on health
insurance without becoming homeless.
Bingo. That's how you
make middle class people dependent on government. That's how you make
addicted to government checks. Brilliant.
3. As a bonus, ObamaCare
is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating
crummy, crappy, part-time jobs. Why? Just to make sure the middle class
trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per
pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the

- The Business World needs to be monitored...and to some extent
regulated. "Greed" is not good, at least for political gain.
- Business "welfare" is alive and well. It must be
stopped, by the business "pigs" themselves for starters. The
Stock Market is populated by Bulls, by Bears, and by Pigs!
- The "Blue Sky Laws" enacted in the 1930's, trying to
establish a level playing field, must be restored and enforced.
Right now, there are two categories of players: the "insiders" and
everybody else. That is illegal.
- Banks should be in the business of making savings,
loans and investments...and NOT IN VEGAS, as has been the case since
the early 1990's.
- There should be no such thing as "too big to fail".
Whatever your size, you screw up and you fail.
- The "Military / Industrial Complex", first identified by
President Eisenhower, must be tightly regulated.
- "White Collar Crime" should receive punishments commensurate
with the number of people harmed...and the degree of harm.
- There should be no limitations to election donations, so long
as there is complete transparency of donor identity. The First
Amendment Freedom of Speech is the most important of all of our
- The only "social issue" which is non-negotiable
should be Abortion - from conception onward - except to save the LIFE
of the mother.
- Homosexuality is, in the vast majority of cases, a biologic
fact and not a choice. Civil Unions and civil "marriage",
YES. Religious "Matrimony", NO.
- Homosexual Adoptions, in accordance with the "best interests
of the child", Yes.
- Freedom of Religion, YES. Freedom from Religion,
NO. Atheism is its own "religion", one of many, that does not
have veto power on the others.
- Comprehensive Reform of Immigration, beginning with the
"Dream Act" passage and proceeding with a structured and reasonable
path toward citizenship for the illegal aliens already in this country.
That is common sense and an imperative for this country's progress -
and not "amnesty".
- Better control of our borders...and of that "great sucking
sound" that is produced by our own business needs.
- No international treaties that might contravene or supplant
our national sovereignty or our own laws.
- "RealPolitik", not wishful thinking in our foreign
relations. Nations have interests...not "friends".
- Pre-emptive Self-Defense. Evil exists, currently
notably in the form of Terrorism. Deal with it.
- Establish the future of the Arctic Circle as a prime priority
for this country.
- Re-energize the 10th Amendment of the U.S.
Constitution. We should embrace Federalism as a counterbalance to
the Federal Government.
- Reduce the Federal Budget deficit by comprehensive Tax Reform
(including increased taxes where appropriate), and by stimulating small
business and entrepreneurship. "No New Taxes" is unrealistic and
counterproductive - politically and economically.

good Demo-Republican who knows the people. He will be a great
candidate for President of the United States. Whether he is
nominated or wins is another matter.

IF YOU WANT TO GET ME REALLY UPSET...
"Racism is big
topic for New London candidates"
(article in The Day, Oct. 30, 2013).
Racism still is
alive and virulent in parts of the country. And
Black "leaders" should go there to voice their concerns and to try to
make a difference. Everywhere else, as in New London, Ct., it is
their stock-in-trade as a substitute for Denial regarding the real
facing some Blacks everywhere.
I addressed this in
my earlier comments relating to the Travon
Martin trial. So I'll try not to repeat myself here.
Simply put, New
Londoners - including myself while on the Board of
Education - addressed this issue in the late 1960's, introducing our
community to the political process in this City. And we were very
very successful. For decades, New London has been a diverse and

But we do not accept persistent irresponsibility, studied ignorance,

every turn when these real issues are brought up are the true

COULD IT BE...ANOTHER WORTH-WHILE MOVIE?
"The Fifth Estate". I give it an A: in plot, in
characterization and acting, in telling us what the makers had in mind,
what they revealed without intending to.
As I left the theater
after viewing this movie, a statement made
in another movie immediately came to mind:
"You want the
Truth? You can't handle the
Truth"! (Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men".).
that' s the way it
really is. We human beings could not bear to see ourselves as we
