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.

CATHOLIC EYE OPENER

    During the Civil War most of the  nurses were nuns. 

    Even if you are not Catholic, this  is eye opening: when the Catholic Church was founded, there were no hospitals. Today, one out of five people in this Country receive their medical care at a Catholic hospital.

      When the Catholic Church was  founded, there were no schools. Today, the Catholic Church teaches 3  million students a day, in its more than 250 Catholic Colleges and Universities, in its more than 1200 Catholic High Schools and its more than 5000 Catholic grade schools. Every day, the Catholic Church feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more people than any other organization in the world.

      The new Obama Health Mandate could end all this and the tax payers would have to make up  the loss.  Also, all Catholic adoption services will come to an end...a human disaster.

      There are more than 77 million Catholics in this country. It takes an estimated 50 million Catholic votes to elect a president. 

      I am asking all of you to go to the polls in 2016 and be united in replacing all Senators and Reps with someone who will respect the Catholic Church, all Christians, and all Religions with the exception of  Islam. 

      Mr. President, you said, "The USA  is not a Christian Nation." You are wrong - we are a Christian Nation founded on Judeo-Christian values allowing all religions in America to  worship and practice freely.... something that Islam will never  do. 

      Oh, by the way, on MUSLIM HERITAGE IN America .... Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, know of a Muslim charity, ever seen Muslims shaking hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, or ever seen a Muslim Candy Striper volunteering in a hospital?  Have you ever  seen a Muslim do much of anything that contributes positively to the  American way of life?

FOR ONCE, I'M SPEECHLESS WITH ADMIRATION.


GS


Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor of a British national newspaper. Ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?
Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!


Written by a housewife, to her daily newspaper:


'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since? 

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day in Washington , and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan . 

I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s and James Foley’s heads while both screamed through their gurgling slashed throats,more beheadings are imminent.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to the bank:

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner - who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and 'fed special food' that is paid for by my taxes - is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran..' Well, believe me!! You guessed it ..................

I don't care!!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous Behaviour!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country! And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. Our soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to add, AND......... I hope you forward all this.

Only six defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The British Soldier

3. The Canadian Soldier.

4. The US Soldier

5. The New Zealand Soldier

6. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul, the other 5 for your freedom.


GIVE THIS LADY A STANDING OVATION. SHE HAS INDEED TICKED ALL THE BOXES

Isn't it interesting that so many people in the Western World feel this way, but not one of our politicians, who are supposed to represent us, ever have the guts to state the situation like it is?

We do not have strong politicians, just weaklings that bend in the wind.

Folks,
check out the lead editorial in the attached edition of the Georgia Weekly Post, created and published by my friend Tony Delmichi, formerly of N.Y.C. and New London and now of Atlanta and Dunwoodie, Georgia. 
The key to my thesis remains the same: my thesis works IF we have an independent Fourth Estate: the Press.  If that disappears...and indications are that "Freedom of the Press" is disappearing...then "keep your powder dry" - and prepare for Civil War III.

"San Andreas"

The movie review of this movie is another example of the evident inability of some (many ?) members of our younger generations to recognize and appreciate human emotions. I believe it is the result of broken homes, a drug culture, and the cyber - culture in all its forms. Have we already reached the "Singularity"...and don't recognize it.  The movie review gives passing recognition to the emotions depicted, and gives credit to Hollywood's ability to create "disasters".  But it still gives the movie a "2 star" rating.
WRONG.  This is a fine movie, even a family movie for teenagers and older adults. And it also accommodates a theory of mine: that viewing depicted true-to-life disasters in some way may prepare an individual to deal with a real disaster if encountered. My only fault with this movie is that they did not give high billing as "Supporting Actor" to GOD.  B+.

A Valuable Lesson From Law School:
"The U.S. Supreme Court is like an 800 pound gorilla:
it sits where it wants to sit."
The Decisions of SCOTUS in recent days are not unique in their dismissal of the intent of the Founding Fathers to create a nation governed by three independent Federal bodies (Legislative, Executive and Judicial).  There have unfortunately many other examples throughout the history of America. 
This Court could have acted Judicially by following the plain language of the Accountable Care Act (aka. ObamaCare) and the clear intent of Congress, as outlined in an article by George Will. Or it could have acted Politically, as it has done twice now, regarding ObamaCare (aka. SCOTUSCARE, according to Justice Antonin Scalia in his Dissent).
Personally, my only challenge has recently been - and will accelerate - absorbing the increasing number of patients, generally sicker and more complex, who are seeking my care and that of my fine Registered Nurses. I can deal with that. 
Nationally, we now have evidence that None of the three branches of Federal Government are functional in the way that our U.S. Constitution articulated.  Into that vacuum has spread the nearly unilateral actions of the Administrative (bureaucratic) bodies. 
The prognosis for this nation is Guarded.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY.

And my gift to myself is Freedom of Expression.  So here goes...
•    The encyclical of Pope Francis is right "on point".  And it is more important for our times than was that of Pope Leo XIII in the 19th century.  If we ignore its clear messages, then these are the "End Times".
•    Do "moderate Muslims" exist?  If so, then they must ignore the now meaningless Shia / Sunni schism and return to a once tolerant Islam, even at the cost of a civil war.
•    The now massive world - wide movement of displaced persons and immigrants from politically and war - ravaged countries can be a catastrophe, or an opportunity. The nations of Europe and the Middle East cannot absorb them.  What is needed is another "New World" as was found and founded in The Americas.  Where, you say?  In the now unoccupied sands of the Sahara that can be returned to its former fecund self by a new environmental colonization effected by the affected nations...and by the rest of the world's nations - all in the self-interest of avoiding another world conflagration.
•    On the home front,  see my earlier posting in this section on the abuses of "racism" to explain all our ills.  The real focus of our efforts to avoid more mindless or evil acts as befell Charleston should be for every person to heed the call: "If you see something, say something!" And that should include our health professionals and the parents and friends among us.  As for guns, access to them should require accepted background checks (and not tools for confiscation).  And in rational hands, guns can do and are doing good in discouraging individual and even governmental mischief.
•    What race do you want to be?  Just pick a race and go for it. Unlike sex, which is in large part biologically determined, personal choice of a particular race can bring substantial dividends in our affirmative action society.  Any other "choice" you want?
•    2016 will see the most important Presidential Election in a century, as I have discussed earlier in this section.  And the Republicans are well on their way to losing it - again.  "Stupido. Stupido. Stupido".
THERE.  Now I can enjoy my Father's Day, in the glow of my four living children and five grandchildren, and with the vivid and loving memory of my Maura and her mother.   

Love, Dad

In the 1990's, our son Perrin worked closely with Joan and Melissa Rivers as Lighting Director for E Entertainment.  After a performance at Mohegan Sun, Joan met Perrin's mother and me very cordially, described that relationship and allowed a photo of the three of us that I cherish, especially since the sudden death of my wife seven years ago.  Each was the definition of a "mensch", a true person in a world increasingly devoid of such benign forces of nature.

You're a 19 year old kid.

You are critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam.

It's November 11, 1967.

LZ (landing zone) X-ray.

Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out.

Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.

You look up to see a Huey coming in. But... It doesn't seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.

Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.

He's not MedEvac so it's not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.

Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety.

And, he kept coming back!!

13 more times!!

Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.

He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, in

Boise, Idaho

May God Bless and Rest His Soul.

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we've sure seen a whole bunch about the thugs Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, the Government shut down, "what difference does it make!!!

And the bickering of congress over Health & OBAMA CARE!

BUT ZIP ABOUT THE PASSING OF

Medal of Honor Winner Captain Ed Freeman

Shame on the media !!!

WEDNESDAY through SUNDAY, May 27 through 31, 2015

Well, once again a vacation out West has worked its magic.  After a difficult five months of coping with a suddenly growing medical practice (in our 52nd year, thanks to ObamaCare subsidies for Husky patients) and other issues, these twelve days away in the Rocky Mountains (Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Colorado) have been "just what the doctor ordered".  And to have shared it with two of my sons and families is a big bonus. Back to full strength, piss and vinegar.
During this time I have paid some attention to happenings nationwide and worldwide.  Suffice to say that there are many horses out West; but there are more horses' asses in the East.  And of course, California is  a "special case'. 
I have also had time to read two books which in my opinion cannot be missed:

1) "Legends And Lies: The Real West", by Bill O"Reilly and David Fisher, Henry Holt and Co., New York, c2015.
2) "Things That Matter", by Charles Krauthammer, Crown Forum, New York, 2013,2015.

Enjoy.

UNBELIEVEABLE.

GS

ALERT!   ALERT!   ALERT!

PLEASE READ ON!

HOORAY – A 53-46 vote

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11. It: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries”.

By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution. HOORAY.

This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known ! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legis..traitors”… vote against them.

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on  all  private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.

Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.:

Baldwin (D-WI)  

Baucus (D-MT)

Bennett (D-CO)

Blumenthal (D-CT)

Boxer (D-CA)

Brown (D-OH)

Cantwell (D-WA)

Cardin (D-MD)

Carper (D-DE)

Casey (D-PA)

Coons (D-DE)

Cowan (D-MA)

King (I-ME)

Klobuchar (D-MN)

Landrieu (D-LA)

Leahy (D-VT)

Levin (D-MI)

McCaskill (D-MO)

Menendez (D-NJ)

Merkley (D-OR)

Mikulski (D-MD)

Murphy (D-CT)

Murray (D-WA)

Nelson (D-FL)

Reed (D-RI)

Reid (D-NV)

Rockefeller (D-WV)

Sanders (I-VT)

Schatz (D-HI)

Stabenow (D-MI)

Udall (D-CO)

Udall (D-NM)

Warner (D-VA)

Warren (D-MA)

Whitehouse (D-RI)

Wyden (D-OR)

Folks: This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.

46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
