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.

THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS A SHOCK TO THE LEFT.
"THE ONLY THING NECESSARY FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH
IS FOR THE GOOD TO REMAIN SILENT".

GS

SHOCK TO NBC

As many of you are aware, it was the Knights of Columbus who submitted to congress that the words "Under God" should be added to our pledge of allegiance.  Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954. The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage think we should keep the words in our pledge verses the percent who want it removed.


If you read this and agree that "under God" should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it to be left in. If you delete it and don't forward it you are voting NO to "under God."  Easy huh!

Official versions  
(changes in bold red 
italics
)

1892

"I pledge allegiance to my flag and the  
republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and 
justice for all."

1892 to 1923

"I pledge allegiance to my flag and  
to the republic for  
which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for 
all."

1923 to 1924

"I pledge allegiance to   the   flag   of the United  
States
        and to the republic for which it stands: one  
nation indivisible with liberty and justice for 
all."

1924 to 1954

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United  
States 
of America      ,      and  
to the republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible with liberty 
and justice for all."

1954 to  
Present

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United  
States of America , and to the republic for which it stands, one nation 

under GOD
     ,       
indivisible, with liberty and justice for 
all."

Do you believe that the word "God" should stay in American  
culture?
      
  
NBC this morning had a poll on this question.  They had the highest Number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the Percentage was the same as this:       
  
86% to keep the words, "IN God We Trust" and "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, 14% against.

That is a pretty 'commanding' public response.     

Why is the world catering to this 14%?       
  
AMEN!       
 
In God We Trust       
And again

THAT'S WHO WE WERE...AND ARE!

And there is one more great thing that we have to do, besides having won  WWll and the COLD WAR.
We have to save this country in 2016 from the grip of the most poorly educated, poorly raised, poorly motivated, most immature, most self-centered generations that this country has ever been beset with...beginning with those from the late 1960's: HORSE'S ASS, CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN OF HORSE'S ASS!
Since these benighted folks have nicely organized themselves into the liberal Democratic Party, the target is clear. 

THROW ALL OF THE BUMS OUT AND ELECT REPUBLICANS.
Not that Republicans are any great shakes these days.  But they are at least adults...and they are not Democrats!
This means that all Senior Citizens must vote in 2016, must vote uniformly for the Republican candidates, and must stop worrying about their Medicare check and health benefits - both of which are secure. 

YOU...THE GREATEST GENERATION...THIS IS YOUR FINAL ACT.  DON'T MISS YOUR CURTAIN CALL!

GS

No matter what our kids
And the new generation think about us,


WE ARE AWESOME !!!  
OUR Lives are LIVING PROOF !!!  


To Those of Us Born  
1925 - 1970   :

At the end
Of this email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno. If you don't read anything else,
Please
 
Read what he
Said.
 


Very well stated,
Mr. Leno.
 
~~~~~~~~~  
TO ALL THE
KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
 
1930s, '40s, '50s,
'60s and '70s!!



First, we survived
Being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank
 
While they were
Pregnant.
 


They took aspirin,
Ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.
 


Then, after that
Trauma, we were
 
Put to sleep
On our tummies
 
In baby cribs
Covered
 
With bright colored
Lead-based paints.
 


We had no
Childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets,
 
And, when we
Rode our bikes,
 
We had baseball
Caps,
 
Not helmets, on
Our heads.
 




As infants and
Children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts,
No air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..
 




Riding in the
Back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
 


We drank water
From the garden hose and not from a bottle.
 




We shared one
Soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.
 




We ate cupcakes,
White bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.
And we weren't overweight.

WHY?  


Because we were
Always outside playing...that's why!
 


We would leave
Home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights
Came on.
 
No one was
Able to reach us all day.
 
--And, we were
OKAY.
 




We would spend
Hours building
 
Our go-carts out
Of scraps
 
And then ride
Them down the hill,
 
Only to find
Out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned
To solve the problem..
 




We did not
Have Play Stations, Nintendos and X-boxes. There were
 
No video games,
No 150 channels on cable,
 
No video movies
Or DVDs,
 
No surround-sound or
CDs,
 
No cell phones,  
No personal computers,  
No Internet and
No chat rooms.
 




WE HAD FRIENDS  
And we went
Outside and found them!
 


We fell out
Of trees, got cut,
 
Broke bones and
Teeth,
 
And there were
No lawsuits
 
From those accidents.

 

We would get
Spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand,
And no one would call child services to report abuse.  



We ate worms,
And mud pies  
Made from dirt,
And  
The worms did
Not live in us forever. 

We were given
BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 22 rifles for our 12th, rode horses,made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and

-although we were
Told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.  


We rode bikes
Or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just
Walked in and talked to them.  




Little League had
Tryouts  
And not everyone
Made the team.  
Those who didn't
Had to learn  
To deal with
Disappointment.  


Imagine that!!  




The idea of a parent bailing
Us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!




These generations have
Produced some of the best   risk-takers,  
Problem solvers, and
Inventors ever.  


The past 50
To 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..  


We had freedom,
Failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.  


If YOU are
One of those born  
Between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!

HILLARY AND BILL CLINTON:
THE BONNIE AND CLYDE OF THE LAST 50 YEARS.
And their Law degrees are much more effective than guns.
If you want a tutorial on Bill, see my section on this web-site entitled "The Clinton Presidency",
a grateful ode at the time to his departure as President.
If you need evidence of Hillary's views of the Law as applied to her, just read the news accounts
of her opaque e-mail system, her solicitation of donations to the Clinton Foundation from foreign
governments with which we do business, and her most recent reported destruction of e-mails that
are national property. 
Hillary Clinton has just disqualified herself from any high office, including the Presidency of the United States.

NOW FOR A BRIEF BUT VITAL PHILOSOPHIC INTERLUDE:

WITH THE INTENTION OF ARRIVING SAFELY

THOROUGHLY USED UP, TOTALLY WORN OUT,
AND LOUDLY PROCLAIMING:
'WOW! WHAT A RIDE'"

PUBLIC EDUCATION POLITICS.

I was hoping that I would no longer have to add to my years-long commentaries on this subject collected under my web-site Category of the same name. After all, most teachers are good people, professional and committed.  But something happens to them in their union setting.  It's like watching "On the Waterfront".  The public education teachers' unions - and by direct extension the teaching profession - have utterly failed public school students during the last 40 years.  And they haven't changed their ways.

WHAT A SHAME!

THIS MIGHT BE DISMISSED AS A VITRIOLIC SCREED AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA - EXCEPT FOR ONE THING: IT APPEARS TO BE ALL TRUE. 

And even the postscript about the uber-liberal Mayor of New York City reminds us of the intolerant and totalitarian approach of ultra-liberals when the rest of us refuse to agree that 2+2=5.

ISRAEL: "ON THE OTHER HAND...."
Here is a good summary of the demographics and politics of this keystone nation today.  If the Muslims of the world would rather maim and kill fellow Muslims of different sects rather than unite at least in the political sphere, what makes you think that they will make peace with hated Jews. Irrational, to say the least.

If you need more than merely my observations, please read the following excellent articles,
precisely on point:
  1. "A REFORMATION FOR ISLAM", by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, in WSJ March 21,22,2015, Review, pC1;
  2. "There Will Be No Peace In Our Time,Get Over It", by Charles Krauthammer, in The Day (www.theday.com), March 21, 2015, Opinion, pA4

ISRAEL.  A DIFFICULT DECISION...AND A RIGHT ONE.
For many years I criticized Israel for pursuing its settlements as a severe impediment to achieving any peace in that tinderbox area of the world.  But even then, as  now, there appeared to be only one "peace" that would be acceptable to the neighboring Arabs and Muslims: the disappearance of Israel and "the Right of Return".  As things have only gotten worse, particularly with ISIS and the Iranian nuclear program,  Israelis had to choose between "guns and butter".  They chose wisely: survival first.

A LETTER FROM A PROCTER AND GAMBLE EXECUTIVE TO THE PRESIDENT

Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America 's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest-rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to Be known as "Partnering". Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development, for Procter and Gamble, and over the course of 36 years made corporate history.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

Dear President Obama, You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America, and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because you align yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America ' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist "goose that lays the golden" egg which provides the highest standard of Living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use extortion tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.
You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything y ou do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
By Lou Pritchett, Procter & Gamble
This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise. Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits.

All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.. It's happening right now.
