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.

SATURDAY and SUNDAY, May 24 and 25, 2014

TIME TO UNLOAD ON "THE STATE OF THE DIS-UNION".

THE PRESIDENT.  Whether by design or otherwise, Barack Obama has weakened the country externally and internally.  And he has promoted or otherwise produced greater divisions among long-standing fault lines than has any other Chief Executive in memory.  

THE CONGRESS: HOUSE AND SENATE.  Our system for the selection, care and feeding of our elected Federal representatives no longer works.  Both the persons and what happens to them when they get to Washington are the result of corrosive election financing, rampant media politicking, coercing House and Senate rules, and co-opting rewards for getting and staying in office no matter what.  The rare individual who can overcome those hurdles finds himself or herself out of a job very quickly. 

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. Divided and nearly conquered by stupid in-fighting on all sides.  You would think that the Party has been broadly infiltrated over recent decades by Democratic operatives.  How else to explain such great losing positions as "amnesty" vs. fairness and common sense, "no new taxes" pledges regardless of circumstances, freedom for Wall Street and corporate polluters to do whatever they want to increase the obscene disparity of wealth distribution - often on the backs of the Middle Class, totally ineffective counters to allegations of "racism", and on and on?

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. As myself a Democrat for 30 years - until the Party nuts left me in the 1990's, I can attest to how much the Party has abandoned any claim to legitimacy as a representative of average law-abiding, self-respecting, informed, educated and ethical  Americans.  Instead, they have restored the plantation and are subtly enslaving several generations of all colors and races.  Articulate, Arrogant and Asinine.  And also totalitarian if given half a chance.  

THE  PEOPLE. You still have "the power", but only if you get informed and engaged and vote. Was my grandmother right when, decades ago, she would call many of you "air heads"?

BLACK PEOPLE.  Folks, you've been had...by your self-serving Black "leaders", by the Teachers' Unions that refuse to allow your children to learn effectively, by the cynical politicians you follow like lemmings, and by your own lack of self-respect.  WAKE UP! You can do a lot better than simply crying "Racism" at every turn, thereby making yourselves the most racist and thus the most reviled by the vast majority of fair people.  As a commentator on society said a long time ago, and with apologies to the Creator: "For Christ's Sake: Poor Is Poor".  Do something about it...by yourselves.  And start by earning your own self-esteem and by restoring your family life.  Everyone else is rooting for you and waiting for you to turn things around for yourselves. 

LATINOS AND ASIANS.  Solid citizens...or would-be citizens.  Maintain your traditions while embracing the real America, not the stupid, amoral and immoral idiots portrayed on our execrable "social media". 

We frequently hear our "divisions" decried by all manner of talking heads.  Damn Right.  We had better stay divided, and not surrender to the  "America" that is being pushed on us by people who are either ignorant, self-serving...or traitors to this country.  You can still get your America, our America, and the America of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution back.   But don't wait too long to WAKE UP.

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA
By Patrick J. Buchanan
 
Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. Among them are these:
 
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that  600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
 
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the 60's on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student
loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in
discrimination against white folks - with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas - to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated  their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and
nursing homes for blacks. We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??
 
Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids? Is white America really
responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
 
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?
 
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially  interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?
 
Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
 
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. They all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.
 
Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!
 
There are NO all white universities in America, but more than 20, last count, all black universities in America.

Yes, a great article.  And a great story, although not at all unique.  This country is now seriously infected with a disease I used to attribute to racism against Black people: "Focal Idiopathic Idiocy".  And the incubator for this ultra-Left idiocy is current American Academia: our universities and many of their faculty.  Unfortunately, the rest of us are going to  have to live with - and fight against - this disease until this group (which I predicted in the 1960's to become "Horse's Ass" and "Son of Horse's Ass") literally die off.  Because they are not rational and not educable.  It will be a long fight. So, keep your powder dry and protect your energies for the long haul.

THE BUSH FAMILY DYNASTY: STILL CONTRIBUTING.

Within a few days of each other, the brothers Bush have offered the nation and the Republican Party two ways out of their current political morass.  Jeb Bush has offered a sane and humane approach to Immigration as a substitute for the inane "amnesty" reflex of too many.  And George W. Bush, in his comments for the 50th anniversary of LBJ's civil rights acts, has placed the responsibility for the continued plight of our Black brothers squarely on Education - or the lack of it for them.  Embrace these two problems with solutions...and both the nation and the Republican Party will be much better off. 

Thank you, gentlemen.

GS

My solution:

1) Secure the borders, IMMEDIATELY.

2) STOP watering down the distinction separating 'legal' from 'illegal' (ONE example--giving Driver's Licenses to illegals).  If you are caught driving here illegally, you will suffer the SAME consequences as any other driver (rather than receiving preferential treatment as currently exists in L.A. County.  If you injure or kill another person/s while driving illegally you will be deported immediately upon completion of your FULL sentence in American prison.

3) Ensure that NOT ONE PENNY of taxpayer money is spent on illegals for non-emergencies.

4) Prosecute EVERY employer who hires illegal workers (NO exceptions, not even Farming).  Legal labor can compensate up to a point, after which (for a time) some crops will be lost and prices will spike.  The imbalance will right itself in time.

With just these 4 steps, MILLIONS of illegals would evaporate in a matter of months, as they did after the Crash of '08.  Legal-age citizens born to illegals will have a choice of whether to follow their family members to (most often) Mexico, or to be separated from them until such time as these family members are granted legal status.  Or, they can send money back to Mexico to support these family members in a manner that more closely resembles their American experience.

The minor-age status of citizens born to illegals will enable their guardians to remain here, but under a temporary hybrid legal status that allows them to work to support their children until age 18.  During this time they could begin (and hopefully complete) their citizenship process to avoid being a burden on either their adult children, Society, or both as they age. 

5) Alter the wording of the 14th Amendment to restore its original intent rather than allow it to enable false claims of citizenship on all future 'anchor babies', thereby preventing more of the aforementioned scenario.

This is what needs to be done.  This problem continues to fester and deepen into the tissue of America.  We can endure a relatively low amount of pain and reconstruction of this tissue NOW or suffer the loss of a tremendous amount of blood and tissue through apathy,  political correctness, and emotion-based, TOTALLY unrealistic "good" intentions.

BENGHAZI: "If it walks like a duck...", it is a cover-up at the "highest levels".

GS

<>An ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives at the end of the interview asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi. He thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair. The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer:
<> 

THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI

We're the battling boys of Benghazi

No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.

Just a fiery death in a blazing hell

Defending our country we loved so well.

It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,

fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.

We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate

Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,

But we stood fast to bar the door.

Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,

So we fought, and we fought, and we fought 'til we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,

But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.

Just two dead seals who carried the load

No thanks to us.........we were just "Bumps In The Road."

 

Will this reach every American with a computer? Or do we like the press give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal's execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing?

GIVE 'EM HELL HARRY.

GS

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation's history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him.  However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri . His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an 'allowance' and, later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves.  There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, "You don't want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn't belong to me...  It belongs to the American people and it's not for sale."

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, "I don't consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise."

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth.

Today, too many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices.  Political offices are now for sale (ie. Illinois ).

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, "My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference!

We should have cloned him!

THE DAY, NEW ENGLAND'S BEST NEWSPAPER.

Besides the regularly occurring awards, this newspaper is a winner.  As an example, check out the Wednesday, April 30,2014 edition, chock full of excellent stories: about abuse of painkillers; about New London's budget woes; about the Coast Guard's "Ancient Mariner"; about some probing questions for "L&M executives"; about the necessary choice between integration vs. neighborhood schools; and two articles about NBA owner Donald Sterling, the one by Mike Dimauro, finally getting it right.

Given all of this, we can forgive (and even be amused by) the occasional schizophrenia when it comes to politics, always becoming more pronounced as we approach any election. Especially because we know the cause of it.
