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 Statue of Liberty
 
This was written by Rosemary LaBonte to the editors of a California newspaper in response to an article written by Ernie Lujan who suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the immigrants of today aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.  The paper never printed this response, so her husband sent it out via internet.

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer.  Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented.

Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground.  They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times.  They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.  Nothing was handed to them.  No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them.  All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out.  My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, Ireland, Greece, France, Poland and Japan.  None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from.  They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan.  They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French American, the German American or the Irish American.  The people of France saw only Americans.  And we carried one flag that represented one country.  Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were.  It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here.  These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American.  They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.
 
And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges.  Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.
 
I'm sorry, that's not what being an American is all about.  I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life.  I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.
 
And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill.  I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.
 
LET THIS NEVER HAPPEN!

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends'.
    - Martin Luther King

A German's View on Islam – worth reading.
 
Hard to argue with this:
 
This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.
 
The author of this email is Dr Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.  A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.
 
'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.'  My family lost everything.  I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.
 
'We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.
'Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant.  It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
 
'The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march.  It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.
'It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.  It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
'The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
 
'Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.
 
'China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
 
'The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
 
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving?
 
'History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt. Yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our Enemy if they don't speak up.  Like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them and the end of their world will have begun.
 
'Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
 
'Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in  Ottawa, too, while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive? The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.
 
'In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation's shores.
 
'In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of "no-go" zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.
 
'As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts - the fanatics who threaten our way of life.'
 
'Lastly, anyone who doubts that this issue is not serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION...AND "ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION".

Well, a divided US Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling denying a President a right to legislate, in accordance with our Constitution and with 4th grade Civics lessons. 
But a legislature should legislate.  And calling any effort to come to a reasonable conclusion based upon the facts as "amnesty" is not legislating.  It's posturing.
Here's my proposal, with supporting facts.
  1. Illegals with any evidence of involvement in the U.S. drug trade, or who commit any misdemeanor or felony while here should be immediately sent back to the custody of Mexico, without any chance - forever - for a legal immigration to this country. If they return illegally, they should serve a minimum of 10 years in our prison - and then be returned. 
  2. Illegals who came to work and live here - and who have been doing so without breaking any other of our laws should be considered "invitees", since they responded to "that great sucking sound" produced by American business looking for cheap and exploitable labor for their profits, and to the failure of State and Federal governments to enforce Immigration Laws long on the books. They should be given Green Cards and should have a five year path to citizenship open to them.  Constitutionally, they should have the status of "aliens", a protected class. Their children not born in America should have the same status.  Their children born in America should be considered citizens.
  3. We must prevent the further inflow of people illegally into America from any other country by fencing, military patrolling, drones...whatever combination is effective.  And for any who succeed in entering despite these measures, stiff fines should be imposed on any American individual or company who hires them AND on the Mexican government in the form of commercial penalties and/or in reduction of financial supports.

REGARDING THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,
I continue to hold to my two touchstones:

1) ANYBODY BUT BONNIE AND CLYDE;  and
2) THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE, LEGALLY AND HONESTLY DETERMINED.

At this point, Donald Trump represents that "will of the people", insofar as registered Republicans are concerned.
Therefore, my support of the attached is entirely consistent with my position to date.

GS

 Dear fellow Trump supporter,

You can decide the outcome of the election between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton — right now.

Let me explain.

Virtually every respectable poll shows a skin-tight race. Since 2008 Democrats have done a much better job of registering their potential voters. The good news is there are very few low-income, African-American and Latino voters — all traditionally Democratic-leaning voters — left to register.

As of today the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is dead even. Every respected poll shows a race within the margin of error. We are looking at a cliffhanger.

A new sophisticated analysis and voters modeling by the Committee to Restore America's Greatness, however, has identified over 1 million potential Trump voters in the ten key states that will decide this election. This is the absolute key to victory for Donald Trump.

Remember that in 2012, a change in just 700,000 votes in five states would have swung the election to Mitt Romney.

Based on a voter registration  program we tested in Pennsylvania and verified in Virginia, an aggressive program launched in June can result in the addition of more than 1 million new Trump voters registered for the November election. I stress this is a vigorously tested program that we know can work — not some pie-in-the-sky plan to grab a million new voters.

We here at the Committee to Restore America's Greatness are committed to a strong, well organized "Ground Game" in the swing states to locate and register these new voters — and then turn them out.We have assembled an experienced team of professionals with a track record of successfully registering voters and of mobilizing them for election day. We have a budget, a plan and the know-how to make it happen

Our analytic targeting is cutting-edge, allowing us to zero-in on those who are likely Trump voters. We will have skilled teams to contact and sign them up. The Trump campaign has not announced any aggressive voter registration effort.

That is why our plan is so important. As a veteran of nine Republican presidential campaigns I can tell you this sophisticated voter registration plan can make all the difference in the world. As a friend and adviser to Donald Trump for almost 40 years I can tell you the enthusiasm for Trump is unlike anything I have seen. The new voters we need are out there.

Again, in 2012, a switch in just 700,000 votes in a handful of states would have changed the outcome of the election. Below are targets, goals and budget by state based on our extensive research. The truth is we can find and register 1 million new Trump voters . There is no pro-Trump Super PAC where you can get this kind of return on your investment. This important voter registration drive can literally change history.

Registration closes on October 7, 2016.  With four months left, there is time to accomplish this goal but the program must begin in June. Staffing, logistics and voter list acquisition will take time.

A new Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll  shows Trump leading narrowly in Ohio, virtually tied in Pennsylvania and tied dead-even in Florida. The 100,000 new voters we would register in Ohio would tip the state to Trump. The 225,000 new Trump Voters we would register in the Sunshine State would make the difference there too.

This vital voter registration plan must begin as soon as possible. We need to raise the $7,992,500 required to get the job done.

The Committee to Restore America's Greatness has no fancy offices or high-priced consultants. Every dollar you donate will go for voter registration and our goal of signing up 1 million new Trump voters.

We are executing a pre-tested voter registration program. We know it will work.

Both myself and the Committee to Restore America's Greatness are totally committed to Donald Trump's victory.

You probably have seen me on networks like Fox News, Newsmax, CNN and MSNBC advocating for Donald Trump.

For over 30 years, I served as Mr. Trump's chief political adviser and confidant. I have advised four U.S. president in their elections, including Ronald Reagan.

I have already assembled a team of some of the best political minds in the business – strategists who know how to play hardball with Hillary and her cronies.

With many establishment Republicans in Washington ignoring – or even opposing Donald Trump, our role is absolutely critical.

And that's why you can make a HUGE difference.

Won't you send $100 for this vital program today? Of course $50 or even $25 would be a great help. If you can send $500  or $1000 or more it would be a Godsend.

There are no limits on how much you can give the Committee for the Restoration of America's Greatness and corporate contributions are acceptable. We don't take donations from lobbyists as a policy.

We have the political experience, expertise and voter registration plan to lock up this election now for Donald Trump. Trump has already demonstrated his ability to bring hundreds of thousands of new people to the political process. I stress that we must begin immediately or fall short of our goal of 1 million new voters for Trump.

Only Donald Trump can make America great again. This could be America's last best chance to reverse course and save our country. Please rush me your response today.

There is no other pro-Trump Super PAC taking on this crucial task. We must counter Hillary's ground game backed by the big unions.

Your answer could make the difference.

Sincerely,

Roger J. Stone, Jr.

The Committee to Restore America's Greatness

P.S. I don't need to tell you big money Clinton supporters like George Soros and his front groups will scour homeless shelters and soup kitchens to squeeze out votes for Hillary- not to mention their various efforts to register and vote illegals. Only 1 million NEW Trump voters can defeat there plan. Rush us your answer

NOW ARE YOU IMPRESSED...FINALLY?

GS (1/30/1933)

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 coloured 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, 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.
 
We also could publicly express our belief in God and Our Lord Jesus
 
without a challenge from someone who felt offended by it.
 
 
If YOU are one of those born
  between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS! 
 
 
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives  for our own good.
 
 
 While you are at it, forward it to your kids, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.
 
 
Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it ?
 
~~~~~~~

POPE FRANCIS, IS IT TIME TO REMOVE THE VELVET GLOVES?

Very recently there was published by Adam Shaw in Fox News / Opinion an angry broadside at the Vatican ship of state, and particularly at Pope Francis. That article is posted In Toto below.  Unfortunately, it has a lot to commend it...although it comes to a wrong conclusion.

When Jesus said: "Thou are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church", I do not believe that He created a rock garden with Simon/Peter as the first rock among equals.

In my opinion as a life-long and faithful Roman Catholic, the Church has made and clings to a number of serious self-inflicted wounds, especially since its marginalization and even dismissal of the spirit and work of Vatican ll and of Pope John XXlll. In recent years I have discussed some of these in my section entitled "Catholic Church: What's Wrong With The Catholic Church" (in www.asthma.drsprecace.com)

These include its prohibition against non-abortifacient contraception, its position that a "unitive" function of sex requires that Every act of sexual intercourse must be open to conception, its continued condemnation of homosexuality long after that inclination has been proven in most cases to be the result of biologic developments in gestation, and even its position that divorced and re-married Catholics cannot receive Holy Communion, our central act of Faith and Hope.

In my opinion, Pope Francis should, unilaterally and "Ex Cathedra" if necessary, either declare these positions unchanged - or change them! Practicing Catholics, the "Body of the Church", have a right to expect to have a true compass from their Church.  Then they can decide individually what course to set.

This is what should take place in this "Year of Mercy". It would be truly merciful.

Enough is enough, Pope Francis should resign - FoxNews.Com

Putin calls to improve ties with the EU despite sanctions - The Day.Com

It was very satisfying having that animated discussion at Muddy Waters. We certainly went "from 0 to 60 in 6 seconds". And that's good.
I have read the paper you sent.  I suggest that we leave a paragraph by paragraph review for when we can also enjoy some wine and dessert at my home.
My knowledge of Russian history goes back just a few centuries. However, my insight into Western civilization is much more robust. I offer herewith a brief synopsis, which has one constant denominator: the constant quest for the rights of the individual vs the rule of the collective.
  1. The overthrow of the despotic Roman Empire.
  2. The rise of Christianity and its centrality as the only source of order in the Dark Ages.
  3. The fight of Christianity against the despotic Muslim world (ie. the Crusades).
  4. The successful fight against the despotism of English royalty (ie,. the Magna Carta).
  5. The successful fight against the developed despotism of the Roman Catholic Church (ie. the Reformation).
  6. The flowering of the human spirit in the Renaissance and in the French Revolution.
  7. The successful overthrow by the colonists of despotic English rule.
  8. The preoccupation of Americans with their own Manifest Destiny, too busy to pay much attention to the "Great" tsarist rulers and other Royal despots - until World War l. 
  9. Revulsion against the Russian Revolution as it was hijacked by Atheism and by the total subjugation of the human spirit in the Lenin / Stalin decades.
  10. Revulsion against the Soviet Russian subjugation of half of Europe after World War ll.
  11. Anxiety over the clumsy Communist movement in this country, punctuated by the Russians' theft of the Hydrogen Bomb and by their involvement in the Korean War against America. 
  12. Forty years of "Cold War", at times not so cold, regularly kept tense by the pronouncements of a parade of bellicose Soviet Premiers, while their own citizens continued to be subjugated and suppressed.
  13. Putin's constant anti-West posture and actions, including the unilateral annexing of the Crimean Peninsula and his proxy wars in Giorgia, in Chechnia and in Ukraine, all against "the people".
Given all of this, you cannot expect "a rose garden". 
As "England and America are two peoples separated by a common language", America and Official Russia (as distinguished from its people) are two societies separated by history and by primacy of Values: the rights of the Individual vs. the power and prerogatives of the Collective. As long as these differences continue, mutual distrust may be the best  that we can hope for.
I hope that I am wrong.  Perhaps you can offer some light...and hope. To be continued...

What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’...

The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum
in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945..  The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted!

 
(1) Tokyo, Japan
0800-September 1,1945
To: President Harry S Truman 
From: General D A MacArthur
     Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions?
 
(2) Washington, D C
1300-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur
From: H S Truman 
     Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct! 
 
(3) Tokyo, Japan 
1630-September 1, 1945
To: H S Truman
From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz
     Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean? 
 
(4) Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945 
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman 
     Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’ really means...

GLOBAL WARMING, 2016: A PERSONAL SYLLABUS.

(Please see also the Category “The Arctic…” in

www.asthma.drsprecace.com

The following is developed in part from scores of relevant reports / articles in my possession.  GS

 

INTRODUCTION:

Methods of Reasoning: a) Deductive, as applied in Medicine: History, Physical Examination, Laboratory testing, Differential Diagnosis, Impression / Diagnosis.  b) Inductive, as often applied by Lawyers: Conclusion, Facts, Law, Precedent.

In this case, my preference (as an M.D., J.D.): Inductive.

CONCLUSIONS:

1)    GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL.  ACCEPT IT AND PROCEED…

2)    HUMAN ACTIVITY IS CONTRIBUTORY.  HOW MUCH IS A FAIR QUESTION.

3)    THEREFORE, WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION, TO OURSELVES AND TO OUR CHILDREN, TO CONTROL, MODIFY OR ABANDON CONTRIBUTORY ACTIVITIES – AS IS COMPATIBLE WITH CURRENT HUMAN SURVIVAL, BOTH GLOBAL AND LOCAL.  WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO COMMIT SUICIDE. FOSSIL FUELS VS, RENEWABLE VS. NUCLEAR (FUSION, FISSION). DEAL WITH MASSIVE FOREST DENUDATION AS A WAY OF LIFE IN LARGE AREAS OF THE WORLD.

4)    DEMAND HONESTY IN SCIENCE. AVOID CONFUSION, SLOPPY “SCIENCE”. IDENTIFY SELF-DEALING IN SCIENCE, POLITICS / GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS….

TIME FRAME BEFORE DISASTER: A DECADE OR A CENTURY??

CURRENT EFFECTS: MORE SEVERE WEATHER; SEA LEVEL CHANGES….

 THE FACTS:

A)   97% OF THE WORLD’S CLIMATOLOGISTS AGREE.

B)    THE ENIGMA OF ANTARTICA, WHEREIN MORE WATER IS TRAPPED THAN EXISTS IN THE REST OF THE WORLD…ALREADY 70% WATER.

C)    THE ACTUALITY OF THE ARCTIC MELT…AND THE EVIDENCE FOR A MASSIVE ACCELLERATION FROM MELTING OF THE PERMAFROST AND RELEASE OF METHANE AND RESULTS OF THAT…

D)   EL NINO / LA NINO: MORE SEVERE? MORE FREQUENT?

E)     DRAMATIC / DISASTROUS WEATHER WORLDWIDE ALREADY DEVELOPING.

CLIMATE SKEPTICS / DENIERS:

1)    “NOT HAPPENING, JUST CYCLICAL”.

2)    “BAD FOR BUSINESS” . “BAD FOR THE WORLD’S CURRENT POPULATION”.

3)    “THE SCIENCE IS JUST WRONG”.

LIKELY RESULTS OF GLOBAL WARMING:

A)   MARKED RISE IN SEA LEVEL WORLD-WIDE, INUNDATING MANY MEGA-CITIES.

B)    WINNERS AND LOSERS AMONG POPULATION CENTERS, WITH RESULTING STRIFE / WARS. ONE EXAMPLE: OIL AND OTHER FOSSIL FUEL-BASED ECONOMIES.

C)    GLOBAL COMPETITION: COMMERCE, POLITICS, NATIONAL SECURITY. ONE MAJOR CURRENT EXAMPLE: THE ARCTIC CIRCLE, THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE, ALREADY OPENING UP TO COMMERCE, NATURAL RESOURCES, GOVERNANCE, NATIONAL SECURITY COMPETITION. (SEE MANY OTHER OFFERINGS IN THIS SECTION).

D)   THEREFORE, AN EXISTENTIAL PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED…AND NOT BY THE “DISSEMBLING MISCREANTS” AMONG US.

THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS:
It's true. If you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have guns.
After many decades of glamorizing violence, ignoring mental illness, enabling illicit drug use and criminal recidivism, this is where we are. 
Of course, the gun opponents will be out in force: not those espousing reasonable regulation, but those demanding confiscation from citizens asserting their right under the Constitution. Wrong conclusion...and too late for that.
Rather, those citizens who have a gun permit obtained legally and reasonably and who wish to protect themselves from the maniacs among us should be allowed to "conceal carry", to protect themselves and also the rest.  This is becoming all the more imperative since the Police are being sufficiently intimidated by "Political Correctness" and by cries of "Racism" to delay and to weaken their obligated response to such incidents.
This is the world we live in, thanks to the epidemic of societal insanity that we have witnessed in recent decades.
When will we say "NO MORE"?
In November, 2016, at the ballot box, I hope and pray.

DONALD TRUMP: A MORE "NUANCED" OPINION....

GS

I hope you're right about his potential.

Yes, you can post my response.  I made two minor changes.  The version directly below is the one you should use.

Donald Trump (I still can't believe this is happening) is a classic blowhard with obvious megalomaniacal delusions of grandeur.  We all know this, probably including many of his supporters; at least the ones with a shred of intellectually honesty.  Donald Trump himself probably knows this.  And, his Presidency would very likely be a national-level repeat of Arnold Schwarzenegger's governorship of California.  He can bluster all he wants about the laundry list of things he will get done, and policies he will change with a mighty wave of his hand and stroke of his pen.  But, in the end he will still have to deal with the political process.

A process that, for all its gross inefficiency, shameless partisanship, and blatant corruption remains the 800-lb. gorilla in the room.  Maybe the abject rage that so many people feel about this system (Trump supporters, Sanders supporters, and plain old pissed-off independents like me) will be enough to get Trump into the White House.  As I noted to a friend about Trump's reasons for surviving as he has, I believe that much of the energy behind it is purely emotional, purely instinctual, purely reactionary; like the irresistible, unnerving urge to scratch an itch.

Fine, I grant all of this.  And, maybe this is the sort of primal scream that is required to shatter the glacier that has slowly enveloped the Federal Government over the last fifty years.  I can live with that; do you know why?

Because Hillary Clinton can not be allowed anywhere neeeeaaarrrr the Presidency of the United States--ev-verrrrr.  Not only would she be a third (and/or fourth) term for the absolute worst President in the modern history of this country, but the actual consequence (not possible, not probable) of her affecting the succession of two or even three Supreme Court justices will have direct detrimental consequences on this country for decades to come.

Once again, I can't believe this is the choice we face.  What happened to this country?

Muslims My Ass

I want to shake the person's hand that wrote this...

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?
The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY???

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has
always been a part of America's history." ??????

 

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE

Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed?
Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?  Sorry
again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence?  Bill of Rights?  Didn't think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England?  No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America?  No,
they did not.  In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human
slavery.  Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery
himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as
"pug nosed slaves."  Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of
your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country?  Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with
Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era?
Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are
subservient to men in the Islamic culture.  So much so, that often they are
beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a
direct family member or their husband.  Yep, the Muslims are all for women's
rights, aren't they?

Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with
Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in
killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001?
If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a
field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were
rejoicing in the Middle East.  No one can dispute the pictures shown from
all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other
cable news network's that day.  Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's
asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone
cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval
for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America.

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.  They were Muslims.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at
Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was
supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and
Afghanistan .

Also, don't forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15.2013 was done by
2 Muslim Brothers. That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America.

EVERY AMERICAN AND CANADIAN MUST READ THIS!!
Be sure to SEND IT TO ALL.

A short poem you won't forget .....
 
Do you recall when the President referred to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road?"  Today, I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he had written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.
:
At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi, and of course the anchor said "yes."  He then 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 an anonymous 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 and Hillary didn't give a damn.
 
Just two dead Seals who carried the load
No thanks to us... We were just "Bumps In The Road."
 
So, will this reach every American with a computer?  Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seals' execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing?
 
The Obama Administration obviously won't be held accountable because they apparently accept Hillary Clinton's assessment, "What difference does it make?"
 
And she wants to be the next President.  Pray she is not!!!

Secession Cul-de-sac

I say, I want a divorce. Secession is for me. I don’t see any way out of it. Half the country wants freedom of responsibility and the other half wants freedom from responsibility. They are irreconcilable positions. Either one forces its will upon the other, or we have a civil war. So, republicans, sure, why not? But we will still have Gov’t trying to run the economy. They may do a better job of it, but it’s not a cure. It’s just, perhaps, a less lethal dose of poison. I’m tired of it.

Twelve people should not determine what the interest rate is. The market should. Bankers are no longer bankers. They are Gov’t agents, even more now with “Dodd/Frank”. “No man can borrow unless another man saves” has been replaced with “no man can borrow unless another man is taxed”. The GSEs (Gov’t Sponsored Enterprises) and their secondary markets have ruined the banking industry. The loans no longer come from depositors’ money. The loans come from the taxes collected by the Gov’t. And where do the little folks deposit there money now, in the stock market? Really?

The first question a business must ask itself these days is not what’s the market doing, what’s R&D say, what’s the price point? No, it’s, what are the tax implications? The business with the best lobbyist gets the most favorable tax code and makes the most money.  We need a flat tax. And more important, we need term limits!
The deformation of capitalism is complete. Mercantilists could only dream of this kind of system; Fascists would be amazed at how well disguised the use of force has become, how easily employed and how willingly accepted. The total elimination of cash is not that far away. Every transaction, every action will be monitored. Those pesky terrorists... we’ll show them. Good-bye liberty, ta-ta freedom of individual responsibility, sayonara, America.

Alan Simpson, the senator from Wyoming, calls senior citizens 'the Greediest Generation' as he compared Social Security to a milk cow with 310 million teats.

Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off but she also tells it like it is!

"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!!!

1.    As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for   FIFTY YEARS.

2.    I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old.  I am now 63).

3.    My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans,
      were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you
      political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of
      zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning
      Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.

4.    Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled
      the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing
      retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age,
      67.  NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the
      goalposts YET AGAIN!

5.    I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare
       from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game.
       Why?  Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an
       extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6.    I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our
      entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why?
      Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you
      just kept on spending even after you ran out of money.  Now, you come to the
      American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.  To add
      insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" to your
      incompetence.

Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1.    How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your
      pathetic 50-year political career?

2.    At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and
      how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American
      taxpayers?

3.    How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4.    What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing
      in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you
      exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called
Congress who are the "greedy" ones.  It is you and your fellow nutcase
thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from
millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you
lunk-headed leech.

That's right, sir.  You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole
purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers.  You know it, we know
it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

NO, I did not stutter!

P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements."  WHAT AN
INSULT!!  I have been paying in to the SS system for 52 years!  "It's my
money" - give it back to me the way the system was originally designed and
stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out
these monthly checks!

A GOOD REASON TO VOTE THIS YEAR, NO MATTER HOW MUCH OR LITTLE MONEY YOU MAKE.

GS

A Good Read
 
I'm a 54 year old consulting engineer and make between $60,000 and $125,000 per year,
depending on how hard I work and whether or not there are work projects out
there for me.
 
My girlfriend is 61 and makes about $18,000 per year, working as a part-time mail
clerk.
 
For me, making $60,000 a year, under ObamaCare, the cheapest, lowest grade policy I
can buy, which also happens to impose a $5,000 deductible, costs $482 per
month.
 
For my girlfriend, the same exact policy, same deductible, costs $1 per month.
That's right, $1 per month. I'm not making this up.

Don't believe me? Just go to http://www.coveredca.gov/ ,
the ObamaCare website for California and enter the parameters I've mentioned
above and see for yourself. By the way, my zip code is 93940. You'll need to
enter that.

So OK, clearly ObamaCare is a scheme that involves putting the cost burden of
healthcare onto the middle and upper-income wage earners.
But there's a lot more to it. Stick with me.

And before I make my next points, I'd like you to think about something:

I live in Monterey County, in Central California. We have a large land mass but
just 426,000 residents - about the population of Colorado Springs or the city of
Omaha.
 
But we do have a large Hispanic population, including a large number of illegal
aliens, and to serve this group we have Natividad Medical Center, a massive,
Federally subsidized county medical complex that takes up an area about
one-third the size of the Chrysler Corporation automobile assembly plant in
Belvedere, Illinois (per Google Earth)

Natividad has state-of-the-art operating rooms, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, fully equipped, 24 hour emergency room, and much more.

If you have no insurance, if you've been in a drive-by shooting or have overdosed
on crack cocaine, this is where you go. And it's essentially free, because
almost everyone who ends up in the ER is uninsured.

Last year, 2,735 babies were born at Natividad. 32% of these were born to
out-of-wedlock teenage mothers, 93% of which were Hispanic.

Less than 20% could demonstrate proof of citizenship, and 71% listed their native
language as Spanish. Of these 876 births, only 40 were covered under [any kind
of] private health insurance. The taxpayers paid for the other 836.

And in case you were wondering about the entire population - all 2,735 births - less
than 24% involved insured coverage or even partial payment on behalf of the
patient to the hospital in exchange for services. Keep this in mind as we move
forward.

Now consider this:

If I want to upgrade my policy to a low-deductible premium policy, such as what I had
with my last employer, my cost is $886 per month.

But my girlfriend can upgrade her policy to the very same level, for just $4 per
month.

That's right, $4 per month. $48 per year for a zero-deductible, premium healthcare
policy - the kind of thing you get when you work at IBM (except of course, IBM
employees pay an average of $170 per month out of pocket for their
coverage).

I mean, it's bad enough that I will be forced to subsidize the ObamaCare scheme in
the first place. But even if I agreed with the basic scheme, which of course I
do not, I would never agree to subsidize premium policies.

If I have to pay $482 a month for a budget policy, I sure as hell do not want the guy
I'm subsidizing to get a better policy, for less than 1% of what I have to fork
out each month for a low-end policy.

Why must I pay $482 per month for something the other guy gets for a
dollar? And why should the other guy get to buy an $886 policy for $4 a month?

Think about this: I have to pay $10,632 a year for the same thing that the other guy
can get for $48.

$10,000 of net income is 60 days of full time work as an engineer; $48 is something I
could make collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one day a
month. Are you with me on this? Are you starting to get an idea what ObamaCare is really
about?

ObamaCare is not about dealing with inequities in the healthcare system. That's just the
cover story. The real story is that it is a massive, political power grab.

Do you think anyone who can insure himself with a premium policy for $4 a month
will vote for anyone but the political party that provides him such a
deal? ObamaCare is about enabling, subsidizing, and expanding the Left's political power base, at taxpayer expense.

Why would I vote for anyone but a Democrat if I can have babies for $4 a
month?

For that matter, why would I go to college or strive for a better job or income if
it means I have to pay real money for healthcare coverage? Heck, why study
engineering when I can be a schlub for $20K per year and buy a new F-150 with
all the money I'm saving?

And think about those $4-a-month babies - think in terms of propagation models.
Think of just how many babies will be born to irresponsible, under-educated
mothers. Will we get a new crop of brain surgeons and particle physicists from
the dollar baby club, or will we need more cops, criminal courts and
prisons?

One thing you can be certain of: At $4 a month, they'll multiply, and multiply, and
multiply. ObamaCare: It's all about political power.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY NOMINATION IS RIGGED...
but not the November Presidential Election, unless you count STUPIDITY as a driving force. We'll see.

ON THE ONE HAND...ON THE OTHER HAND...
The following comments and references are offered in an effort to balance the sometimes strident opinions presented herein.  This is not an apology, as you will see.  For "These are the times that try men's souls", times that demand bold thought and action.
Nevertheless, let's try.
1) Obama on Supreme Court nominees: the Law Professor doesn't know his history.  See "Obama's Ahistorical Scolding About The Supreme Court", WSJ April 11, 2016, Opinion, pA13.
2) The Nation is indeed divided, seriously so. And the bums who physically attack Trump event attendees are playing with fire. So are the adolescent idiots in "institutions of higher learning" who attack and vilify anyone not of their persuasion.  See: "How the Yale Halloween Vigilantes Finally Got Their Way", WSJ June 4,5, 2016, Opinion, pA11.
3) The depressive statement attributed to Rev. Frank Graham, quoted in part here:

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
 
Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back.  He wrote:

The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.  The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.
 
A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays,government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow  travelers"
have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

You will never again out-vote these people.  It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.  It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our  beloved country to its former status.

People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard.  The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.
 
The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.
 
Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness...

4) "A Party Divided, And None Too Soon", by Peggy Noonan, in WSJ June 4-5, 2016, Opinion, pA11.
5) A new "Journal of American Greatness", which offers in-depth but anonymous commentary (for self-protection) on the issues at hand. I will add a Link to that source on my web site.
6) "How The Senate Is Supposed To Work", by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, WSJ Tuesday, May 31, 2016, Opinion, pA13. A strong reminder of the value of bipartisan legislation.
7) "The West's Weimar Moment", by Jochen Bittner, in NYTimes May 31, 2016, OP-ED, pA21. This is a cautionary tale recalling how Germans overthrew their weak government in the throes of the Great Depression.  Not directly on point, but cautionary nevertheless.

As for myself, no change:
Anybody but Bonnie and Clyde;  and
my car now sports a Trump bumper-sticker, reflecting "the will of the people" - and not of the Oligarchs.

To be continued.

Marines in Wyoming
 
USMC vs the ACLU
 
The ACLU recently closed it's only office in (Cheyenne) Wyoming in recognition of the fact that, they are not welcome here;  no kidding, this was in the Laramie newspaper a couple days ago.
HOOH RAH !!! - "SEMPER FI" THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO KEEP IT GOING!
What's wrong with the picture?



ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!
 
If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying. This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms.
 
"These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, "on federal property and on federal time... For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately."

When asked about the ACLU's charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Corps said, "Screw the ACLU, GOD Bless Our Warriors. Send the ACLU to Afghanistan and then watch those SONS OF BITCHES pray."
