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.

"KRAUTHAMMER WAS RIGHT, OBAMA WAS TRANSFORMATIVE", by Paul Choiniere, Editorial Page Editor, The Day, August 30, 2015.

Krauthammer was right, Obama was transformative - TheDay.Com

Here is a well -presented "Apologia Pro Vita Sua" for President Obama.
There is only one problem: in each of the areas allegedly addressed and even allegedly solved, what the Obama Administration has done is to say:
"TAKE TWO ASPIRIN AND CALL ME IN THE MORNING".
That is to say: Obama has addressed symptoms, without having taken a careful History and without having done a careful Physical Examination. The result is analogous to the truism: "Justice Delayed, Justice Denied", which we all know all too well.  In this case, it is "Diagnosis Delayed, Patient Deteriorated".
Let's look at the alleged "transformations".
1) ObamaCare: a Christmas Tree of Wants with no attention paid to true Health Care reforms needed. This is leaving the Health Care System reeling, patients receiving short shrift masking as necessary health care, and the general public becoming impoverished with out-of-pocket and massively rising insurance costs.
2) Public Education: a lot more of bureaucracy and testing (including the ridiculous "new, new math"), without touching the corrosive impediments constantly placed by Teachers' Unions for the last three decades in the way of common sense reforms for a failed system and failed millions of students. 
3) The Environment: a slightly better grade here, for effort if not for results. "Where's the Beef?" The environment continues to be despoiled by past and present mining technology and carbon-based energy production. Our "leaders" continue to pay off their donors and to avoid LEADING their constituents to an understanding of the current benefits of Nuclear Energy: now through fission and soon through fusion. They can't even get Harry Reid's favorite mountain done.
4) National Security and Foreign Affairs: A DISASTER.  All Wrong, and on the way to World War lll, with our soldiers once again training with broomsticks, as after Pearl Harbor. Too much to go into here; but check out my Rapid Response section on my web site (www.asthma-drsprecace.com). 
AND WORST OF ALL, PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS BEEN A DIVIDER, NOT A UNITER, to the extent that the elections of 2016 could also be "transformative" for this nation - in the worst possible way. 

As President Bush famously said during "Katrina": "YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB, BROWNIE".

A Doctor-Assisted Disaster for Medicine
As a physician in Oregon, I have seen the dire effect of assisted-suicide laws on patients and my profession.

By William L. Toffler
Aug. 17, 2015 7:11 p.m. ET
Since the voters of Oregon narrowly legalized physician-assisted suicide 20 years ago, there has been a profound shift in attitude toward medical care—new fear and secrecy, and a fixation on death. Well over 850 people have taken their lives by ingesting massive overdoses of barbiturates prescribed under the law. Proponents claim the system is working well with no problems. This is not true.

As a professor of family medicine at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, as well as a licensed physician for 35 years, I have seen firsthand how the law has changed the relationship between doctors and patients, some of whom now fear that they are being steered toward assisted suicide.

In one case a patient with bladder cancer contacted me. She was concerned that an oncologist treating her might be one of the “death doctors,” and she questioned his motives. This was particularly worrying to her after she obtained a second opinion from another oncologist who was more positive about her prognosis and treatment options. Whichever of the consultants was correct, such fears were never an issue before.

Under Oregon’s law, a patient can request lethal drugs only if he has a terminal illness and less than six months to live. However, it is nearly impossible to predict the course of an illness six months out, and many patients given such prognoses live full, rewarding lives long past six months.

The law requires that patients be referred for psychological examination if the doctor suspects they have depression or mental illness. But some doctors see suicide as a solution to suffering and depression as rational given patients’ circumstances. Last year only three of the 105 patients who died under the law were referred for a psychological exam.

A 2008 study published in the British Medical Journal examined 58 Oregonians who sought information on assisted suicide. Of them, 26% met the criteria for depressive disorder, and 22% for anxiety disorder. Three of the depressed individuals received and ingested the lethal drugs, dying within two months of being interviewed. The study’s authors concluded that Oregon’s law “may not adequately protect all mentally ill patients.”

Also concerning are the regular notices I receive indicating that many important services and drugs for my patients—even some pain medications—will not be covered by the Oregon Health Plan, the state’s Medicaid program. Yet physician-assisted suicide is covered by the state and our collective tax dollars. Supporters claim physician-assisted suicide gives patients choice, but what sort of a choice is it when life is expensive but death is free?

A shroud of secrecy envelops the practice of assisted suicide. Doctors engaging in it do not accurately report the actual manner of death. Instead they are required by state law to fabricate the death certificate, stating that the cause is “natural” rather than suicide. In late 1997, right before assisted suicide was about to begin, the state legislature implemented a system of two different death certificates—one that is public and includes no medical information and another that is kept private by the state. As a result, no one outside of the Oregon Health Division knows precisely how many assisted suicides have taken place, because accurately tracking them has been made impossible.

In my practice, more than two dozen patients have discussed assisted suicide with me. Most did not have a terminal diagnosis. One inquiry came from a patient with a progressive form of multiple sclerosis. He was in a wheelchair yet lived an active life as a general contractor. I asked him how the disease affected his life. He acknowledged that MS was a major challenge and told me that if he got too much worse, he might want to “just end it.”

I told him I could understand his fear and frustration and even his belief that assisted suicide might be a good option. I also told him that should he become sicker or weaker, I would work to provide him the best care and support available. No matter how debilitated he might become, his life was, and would always be, inherently valuable. As such, I said that would I not recommend nor would I participate in his suicide. He simply replied: “Thank you.”

The way that physicians respond to patients’ requests for lethal drugs has a profound effect on their choices and their view of themselves and their inherent worth. Such patients deserve doctors who will support them through their illnesses, not offer them a quick exit.

One of the most troubling notions I hear is that killing oneself with sleeping pills is “dignified”—as if natural deaths aren’t. Last year my wife, Marlene, died of metastatic cancer. We’d been married for 40 years. The final five years we both knew she would inevitably die of her cancer. At one point doctors told her that she had only three to nine months left, yet she lived more than four times as long.

While I treasure all of our years together, the last years of our marriage were among the best. There was great suffering but also great joy and meaning in the special moments we and our seven children shared together—moments that became all the more special the closer we came to the end of her life. I wouldn’t trade a nanosecond of those last years. She died peacefully and naturally at home surrounded by her family and friends. She never took an overdose, yet her death and life had great dignity.

Some two dozen suicide bills have been introduced in legislatures around the country, from California to Maine. These states should heed the example of Oregon, where assisted suicide has been detrimental to patients, degraded the quality of medical care, and compromised the integrity of the medical profession.

There are some encouraging signs. In 2012 an assisted-suicide referendum narrowly failed in Massachusetts by two percentage points. The California senate passed a suicide bill in June, but it stalled in the state assembly after opposition to it mounted.

As a society we should continue to reject the legalization of physician-assisted suicide as a solution to suffering. Instead we must work to increase access to hospice and palliative care to better support those suffering from terminal illness. The sick and aging deserve better than Oregon’s mistake.

REGARDING THE DEBATE BETWEEN NEW LONDON MAYOR FINIZIO AND CANDIDATE PASSERO.
As I viewed it streaming live on the web page of The DAY, moderator of the debate, I thought of two literary classics: "ALICE IN WONDERLAND" and " A TALE OF TWO CITIES".  Although standing just a few feet apart, these two worthy adversaries could not have been more far apart, despite both being Democrats.  Meanwhile, as I believe is true in the nation itself, the outcome of this local election and also of the 2016 national election will be based upon how sick and tired of political "business as usual" folks are...and on how depressed and immobilized they are.

Someone please tell me, what's wrong with

Both Democrats and Republicans
 
They Say,"We're     broke"

But, over the last several years, THEY

A total of $14,933,000,000
that's 14.933 BILLIONS, of Dollars
& they all still hate us.!!!
 
( NOTE HOW MANY AFRICAN NATIONS!)
 
But, on the other hand,

OUR MILITARY IS BEING CUT,
OUR SOLDIERS ARE HAVING THEIR BENEFIT's
CUT & THE GOVERNMENT'S GONE BACK ON ITS
PROMISE OF FREE MEDICAL CARE & DENYING DISABILITY TO THOSE PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY TORN APART, FOR NO GOOD REASON, IN POLITICAL WARS!

Our retired seniors,
living on 'fixed incomes', have their
taxes raised, to send to these countries,
& also, are having medical benefits cut.

Our own citizens receive NO aid, unless they're the ones who
refuse to work, & have babies
for welfare payments!

Nor do the seniors & working public
get any breaks, while our government
& religious organizations will pour
Hundreds of Billions Of dollar's,
& Tons of Food, to Foreign Countries & the illegals,
& the leeches within our borders!
 
AMERICA:
A country where we have
 
Our brave warriors, damaged for life,
waiting in year long lines for their due,
the elderly going without needed medication,
& the mentally ill without treatment,
& for all of us, our safety is at risk,
because   prisoners are being released,
back onto the streets, due to "lack of funds "
-- etc.
 
& YET .......

They'll have a "Benefit Show"
For the people of Haiti , on 12 TV Stations ;
with ships & planes lining up with food,
water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors

Now Just Imagine, if
Our own *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US'
the same support they give foreign countries.

"IF I WERE A RICH MAN..."

I would become a candidate for President of the United States.

I kid you not!

I could do no worse than we have witnessed during the last 7 years.

And I would do at least as well as some of the Republican candidates.

As for Hillary Clinton, "fuggedaboudet".  As for Joe Biden...promising.

You may not know that I was a Democrat for 26 years...until the Democrats lost their minds...and possibly their souls.

SO: WHAT WOULD BE MY POSITIONS?

All you have to do is to Search them on my web site, especially including the Rapid Response section going back to March, 2003.

But I'll offer an incomplete, "Executive Summary".

Racial Bias: it's there, still, but in isolated pockets of society - except in some loud elements of Black society, which tend to be the most "racist".

Social Inequality.  Of course it exists, in Capitalist societies and in Communist societies.  What to do? Study and Work.  Work and Study.  And stop whining!

The Addiction to Sex and the more base instincts of human nature.  And maybe be then your "Mojo" will come back...without the need for Viagra or Cialis. And take another look at Spirituality, whatever the Religion.

Immigration.  We need immigrants. We always have.  But we must have effective control of our borders (if we want to be considered an actual country) assure that only legal immigrants come in, provide a strict mechanism for illegal immigrants already here - and law-abiding - to achieve legal status over time, and uphold the 14th Amendment of our Federal Constitution regarding all persons born on U.S. soil. 

Taxation.  A Flat Tax, without deductibles, for private citizens and for corporations, should be seriously considered.

Elections: Limitation on running time for elected office, total transparency regarding political donations, and term limits for all elected officials.

Climate Change.  It's here.  Whatever the reasons, we should not be soiling our nest in avoidable ways, as we are obvious doing.

Crime and Punishment.  Really, applied to all the lawless, from the pimp to the President.

Our "Allies".  Ha!  Nations do not have friends. They only have Interests. Get it? And that goes for our dealings with the "United Nations".

Our "Enemies". No, our adversaries at a point in time.  Except maybe Russia and China. 

Islam.  A worthy if confused and divided Religion.  Only they can resolve their issues.  Meanwhile, Isis, Al Qaida, the Taliban are dissembling wolves in religious clothing.  As they are attacking us, we must destroy them - and now, not "30 years" from now, as even some of our confused and self-serving military "leaders" are saying.  Look at the opportunity of the 1930's regarding Nazi Germany and Imperialist Japan...and what those lost opportunities produced.

Iran.  This administration is out of its mind, or totally out of courage, to push the "agreement" now before Congress. 

Enough...for now.  "IF I WERE A RICH MAN..."

ISIS will have to be confronted and destroyed, from within the Muslim world and by the rest of the world.  It's just a matter of time...and the sooner the better.

THE DEBATE, AKA " GOTCHA".
I watched the entire debate among the major Republican candidates. And yet I can't recognize the reportage that it produced.
All of the candidates were adult and articulate; and they were helpful in their proposed approaches to serious national problems that have been either ignored or have been produced by the current administration since 2008.
The big surprise was Megyn Kelly. She had her own agenda.  Is she a closet ultra-liberal? Or is she simply another deluded or cynical female who thinks that being against killing babies in the womb is an "attack on women's health"? 
If you missed the debate, you missed it...and you can't catch up by reading about it - not these days and not with this Yellow Journalism. You'll just have to wait for the next debates, "the real deal".

Senior tax return

I just received an audit on my tax return for 2012 back from the IRS. It puzzles me!!!
They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.
I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?"
I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads;
42 million unemployed people on food stamps,
2 million people in over 243 prisons; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate."
1 useless President.
Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

God's plan for aging

Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach & stretch.

And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.

So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.

Nine Important Facts To Remember As We Grow Older

#9  Death is the number 1 killer in the world.   

#8  Life is sexually transmitted.   

#7  Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.   

#6   Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.   

#5  Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.   

#4  Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.  

#3  All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.   

#2  In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.   

#1  Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

Please see my recent offering entitled: "The State of our System of Justice."
Now comes yet another shocking encounter between a police officer and a member of the public...once again resulting in death.  This time it was in Cincinnati, and once again it involved a traffic stop.
However, this time we had the benefit of the officer's body cam, at least as much as was released publicly.  From what I viewed and have heard, I can come to several opinions: 1) the officer was tentative, even fearful, and evidently not well trained in this work, being a college campus officer; 2) the police procedure he was apparently following leaved much to be desired, as he seemed to wonder whether to allow the victim allegedly to get his driver's license from his glove compartment...vs possibly a gun; 3) the victim seemed on the video to make a sudden move, which spooked the officer into shooting and killing him; 4) the District Attorney grossly over-reacted in immediately charging the officer with "Homicide".  So far, it seems like a tragedy of errors.
I believe that there is much more to see and to know here.  Stay tuned.

REGARDING THE REAL PROBLEM WITH "SAME SEX MARRIAGES".
The report reproduced below gives me an opportunity to address the issue of Homosexuality.  First of all, for the great majority of homosexual persons this is a biologic fact begun in utero and not a choice. The degree of "penetrance" of the tendency varies, as does "maleness" and "femaleness" in "straight people.  How persons express that fact should be a matter between themselves and their Creator.

Beyond that, Society has an important role to play, in Civil Law but certainly not in Criminal Law.  A same-sex couple should be accorded the same legal rights as "straight" couples, under the rubric "Civil Union".  But, given the foundational role of traditional Marriage in Society for eons - especially regarding children -  that Term should be reserved for a man and a woman - in Civil Law and certainly as a religious Sacrament.  In fact, the Sacrament of Matrimony, also a contract, is held not to have been valid without the "consideration" of a couple's intent to bear children.  The absence of that intent is grounds for a valid Annulment in the Catholic Church. 

And here we get to the crux of the distinction between "Civil Union" and "Marriage".  The central purpose of the latter is to procreate and raise healthy children.  That is not the case with same-sex relationships.  And the results for the children are important to both the children and to the Society which they will join as adults.  PLEASE SEE THE FOLLOWING REPORT ON THIS SUBJECT, REPRODUCED BELOW. 
Thus, the entire matter of Homosexuality and homosexual relationships would be better approached, and with less "sturm und drang", by reference to the above facts.  Of course, cessation of the radical diatribes engaged in by the Far Right and by the "flaming" far Left would be of great help.
