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.

"Deepwater Horizon"

They certainly get the pyrotechnics and the deafening sound right, although at the expense of hearing the dialogue. They also try to develop individual characters, although ultimately superficially. But does a person, in panic and pain for sure, need all of that time to get off that rig that is about to incinerate you - and JUMP INTO THE WATER?

But my main criticism is not with those details, but with the bigger picture: there was a crime; there are many victims; but there is no Punishment.

And don't talk to me about money damages.  PEOPLE NEED TO GO TO JAIL. That theme was barely implied in the movie. Not so with Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal who, addressing the many examples of corporate crime, has drafted the "HIDE NO HARM ACT", which would finally make responsible corporate individuals criminally liable for corporate criminal acts perpetrated under their control. That should have been the message of this movie, "based on a true story".

What: too politically incorrect?

Hi, Mom.

GS

Maxine for President!

Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in this country lately -- illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida



... not me -- I concentrate on solutions for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.
 
* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.
* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.
 
Any other problems you would like for me to solve today? Yes!
 
Think about this:
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments  

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 12 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
THE CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq .... why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore. 

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this -- you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians ... it creates a hostile work environment.

New SS Checks…
 
THIS IS WORTH THE FEW MINUTES IT TAKES TO READ AND DIGEST!
 
F.Y.I.  By changing the name of  SSC contributions, it gives them a means to refute this program in the future.  It’s free money for the government to spend under this guise (new name).
 
It is really sad to think that most people will just roll over and accept this as if there is nothing that can be done,  but maybe there is if we make a little noise about our displeasure with what they have done to today’s retirees.   I will pass this on!!!!!
 
Subject: New SS Checks
 
The Social Security Check is now (or soon will be) referred to as…..
A *Federal Benefit Payment*!!!

I'll be part if the one percent to forward this. I am forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.
 
Please keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.

The government is now referring to our Social Security Checks as a "Federal Benefit Payment."
 
 This isn't a benefit. It is our money paid out of our earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security, but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes.
 
If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that's close to $180,000 invested in Social Security.  If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both you and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, After 40 years of working you'd have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!
 
This is your personal investment!
 
Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.  That's almost three times more than today's average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration. (Google it –it’s a fact).
 
And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you're 98 if you retire at age 65)!  I can only imagine how much better most average-income people COULD LIVE in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.  Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger government *Ponzi Scheme* than Bernie Madoff ever did.
 
They took our money and used it elsewhere.  They forgot (oh yes, they knew) that it was OUR money they were taking.  They didn't have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them.  And they didn't pay interest on the debt they assumed.  And recently they've told us that the money won't support us for very much longer (Isn't it funny that they NEVER say this about welfare payments?).
 
But is it our fault they misused our investments?
 
And now, to add insult to injury, they're calling it a *benefit*, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.  Just Because they borrowed the money, doesn't mean that our investments were a charity!
 
Let's take a stand.  We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government.  Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.
 
Then call it what it is: Our  Earned  Retirement  Income

The editorial referenced here makes clear that the "Establishment" Bums are both yours and mine: Democrat and Republican. But here is a description of an entire Presidential Administration that has corrupted many of its operating organs: IRS, Justice Department, SEC, State Department, even Department of Defense....
It is very difficult to change the composition of the entire collaborative Senate and Congress, Democrat and Republican, in one national election.
But it is easy to remove an entire Administration:
THROW THE BUMS OUT and enable an entirely new Administration:

"SFOGARE":  Italian for "to vent", to put out the fire.
That's what I must do every time I think of the abject failure that has been
Public Education during the last 40 years.
I am not new to this subject, as you can see from a visit to the Category on my web site entitled "Public Education Politics".
But now the scope of the failure is fully evident: absentee parents beginning with pre-school and trying to make up for it with destructive permissiveness and with efforts to administer "self-image" rather than having it be personally earned;  colleges and universities which have become institutions of totalitarian indoctrination instead of open dialogue and "higher education"; addiction to gizmos and gadgets at the expense of learning priceless socialization - and with resultant depression and suicidal ideation; ridiculous grade inflation and the holy "Curve"....

It is this last concept that prompts me today.
Please see the good article entitled: "Free Students From The Grade Curve Trap", by Adam Grant, NYTimes Sunday, September 11, 2016, SR p 3.
I have a personal story about that.  In the mid-nineties, I served as Adjunct Professor of Law at Quinnepeac School of Law for three semesters. My subjects included Health Law and Medical Mal-Practice Law.  My students were second and third year Law students.
On the first day of the first semester course, I met with 32 students.  After some pleasantries, I issued two rules: 1) this was not to be a correspondence course; three unexcused absences = no grade; 2) no grading "on the Curve"; I would give whatever each earned, 32 "A"s, 32 "C"s, etc.  We then proceeded with the day's material.
At the second class meeting, 16 students were ABSENT, never to be seen again.  The rest of us continued with a fine semester course, until of course I had to read and grade 16 three - hour essay exams.  As it turned out, they all earned A's and B's, with one C.  I continued for two other semester courses. A very rewarding experience, as have been all of the experiences of teaching and learning during this, my 60th year as a practising physician.

So, what has this wreck called "Public Education" wrought? Just look around you, and especially at those who don't even know that they are dying of STUPIDITY.
And now comes the news that up to 40% of Millennials are still living with their parents!   
CONGRATULATIONS: YOU GET AN A ++ AND A 4.5 GPA,

The Story of a Frog - An Analogy
 
The STORY...

"If you place a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will immediately try to
scramble out. But if you place the frog in room temperature water, and don't
scare him, he'll stay put. Now, if the pot sits on a heat source, and if you
gradually turn up the temperature, something very interesting happens. As
the temperature rises from 70 to 80 degrees F., the frog will do nothing. In
fact, he will show every sign of enjoying himself. As the temperature
gradually increases, the frog will become groggier and groggier, until he is
unable to climb out of the pot. Though there is nothing restraining him, the
frog will sit there and boil. Why? Because the frog's internal apparatus for
sensing threats to survival is geared to sudden changes in his environment,
not to slow, gradual changes".

This is worth reading, however it will upset you.

ALL Of A Sudden....Seven Short Years Have Passed!

Before Obama, There was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America.

. All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.

. All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports, and businesses.

. All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.

. All of a sudden we are inundated with lawsuits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.

. All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.

. All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.

. All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in 'anti-Muslim speech'.

. All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS are emphatically declared they are NOT Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined NOT to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like 'workplace violence."

. All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood.

. All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle east, giving rise to ISIS.

. All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama's stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted.

. All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed over to fund their programs.

. All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war, and sabotage THEY perpetrate against our soldiers.

. All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World War I levels Of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further drawdown of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress.

. All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the Middle East .

. All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility.

. All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.

. All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama's "Syrian refugee" resettlement Programs.

. All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA.

. All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two supporters of RADICAL Islamic Jihad, is disarm American citizens.

. All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend the Christian funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.

****************************** ****************************** ****************
TODAY, AMERICA IS MUCH LIKE THE FROG....
All of a sudden, I'm sick to my stomach. I'm not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and just how much "progress" has been made by Islam these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to an average 75 year lifetime!

URGENT emails and phone calls needed to the American Medical Association

The American Medical Association (AMA) is considering  whether to abandon its decades-long position opposing assisted suicide and take a neutral stance. Please contact the names below, asking them to not change their stand!  Alan

 

Memo

To: State Affiliates and Board members

From: Jennifer Popik, J.D. Director of Medical Ethics at National Right to Life

Re: URGENT emails and phone calls needed to the American Medical Association (AMA) over next several weeks

Date: September 15, 2016

 

Background:

There is an effort currently underway within the American Medical Association (AMA) to abandon its decades-long position opposing assisted suicide and take a neutral stance. At its July 2017 annual meeting, the AMA will consider taking a “neutral” position which essentially sends a green light to the states that legalizing is acceptable. However, we have recently been made aware that the AMA will hold an interim meeting on November 13 and 14 in Orlando where a special breakout session will be held on assisted suicide.  

 

Both the national and state medical societies’ opposition to doctor-prescribed suicide have been instrumental in stopping the spread of these dangerous laws. In fact, when the Vermont and California medical societies took neutral positions, it was devastating to the efforts in the legislature to block legalization. Assisting suicide is now legal in Oregon, Washington, Vermont, and California, and the practice may have some legal protection in the state of Montana.

 

Action Needed

We are asking the following things:

1.      Please have your members contact one or both contacts below via phone or email.

2.      Please restrict arguments to the suggested bullet points, in the person’s own words.

3.      Speak with any physicians you know and urge them contact the AMA.

4.      Ask for a written response/ report any information received back to NRLC.

           

1.      Who to contact:

Dr. Andrew W. Gurman, MD, AMA President, andrew.gurman@ama-assn.org

Chicago IL 60611-5885

Based on both polling and the positive experience of many states fighting these assisted suicide laws, please try and restrict your arguments to one or two of the following:

 

2.      What to Say:

(Select one or more of the following statements and re-word or add your own thoughts.)

 

The AMA should retain its longstanding position in opposition to the legalization of assisted suicide because:

 

         Medical professionals should focus on providing care and comfort to patients – NOT becoming a source of lethal drugs.  I would not want my doctor to have this power and suggest suicide to me as an “option.”

 

         Will the government and insurance companies do the right thing – pay for treatment costing thousands of dollars – or the cheap thing – pay for lethal drugs costing hundreds of dollars?

 

         Everyone knows someone who has been misdiagnosed or outlived a terminal diagnosis.

 

         Wanting to die because of depression is treatable.  Millions of people are living proof.

 

         Everyone agrees that dying in pain is unacceptable, however nearly all pain is now treatable. A patient in pain should find a new doctor.

 

         Oregon is proof that general suicides rise dramatically once assisted suicide is promoted as a “good.”

 

         My family member could die from taking lethal drugs and I wouldn’t know about it until he/she is dead because no family notification is required in advance.

 

         Assisted suicide is a recipe for elder and disability abuse because it can put lethal drugs in the hands of abusers.

 

         A relative who is an heir to the patient’s estate or an abusive caregiver can pick up the lethal drugs and administer them without the patient’s knowledge or consent.  There is no oversight and no witnesses are required once the lethal drugs leave the pharmacy

* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000

* National debt: $19,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $192,710
* Total budget cuts so far: $385

Think of the media circus, flags at half staff, and all the things that were said of Whitney Houston when she died.   Think about how it was when Prince died (from an overdose no less).  I don’t know about you, but it seems we are turning this country over to the likes of people like Whitney and Prince.  This hero died with barely anyone's notice...

"Shifty" By Chuck Yeager
Shifty volunteered for the airborne in WWII and served with Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, part of the 101st Airborne Infantry. If you've seen Band of Brothers on HBO or the History Channel, you know Shifty. His character appears in all 10
episodes, and Shifty himself is interviewed in several of them.
 
I met Shifty in the Philadelphia airport several years ago. I didn't know who he was at the time. I just saw an elderly gentleman having trouble reading his ticket. I offered to help, assured him that he wasat the right gate, and noticed the "Screaming Eagle," the symbol of
the 101st Airborne, on his hat.
 
Making conversation, I asked him if he'd been in the 101st Airborne or if his son was serving. He said quietly that he had been in the 101st. I thanked him for his service, then asked him when he served,and how many jumps he made. Quietly and humbly, he said "Well, I guess I signed up in 1941 or so, and was in until sometime in 1945 ..." at which point my heart skipped.

At that point, again, very humbly, he said "I made the 5 training jumps at Toccoa, and then jumped into Normandy . . . do you know where Normandy is?" At this point my heart stopped. I told him "yes, I know exactly where Normandy is, and I know what D-Day was." At that point he said "I also made a second jump into Holland , into Arnhem ." I was standing with a genuine war hero ... and then I realized that it was June, just after the anniversary of D-Day.

I asked Shifty if he was on his way back from France , and he said "Yes... And it 's real sad because, these days, so few of the guys are left, and those that are, lots of them can't make the trip." My heart was in my throat and I didn't know what to say.

 I helped Shifty get onto the plane and then realized he was back in coach while I was in First Class. I sent the flight attendant back to get him and said that I wanted to switch seats. When Shifty came forward, I got up out of the seat and told him I wanted him to have it, that I'd take his in coach. He said "No, son, you enjoy that seat. Just knowing that there are still some who remember what we did and who still care is enough to make an old man very happy." His eyes were filling up as he said it.
And mine are brimming up now as I write this.

Shifty died on Jan. l7, 2012 after fighting cancer.
There was no parade. No big event in Staples Center ..
No wall-to-wall, back-to-back 24x7 news coverage.

No weeping fans on television.  And that's not right!

Let's give Shifty his own memorial service, on line, in our own quiet way. Please forward this email to everyone you know. Especially to the veterans.
Rest in peace, Shifty.

Chuck Yeager, Maj. General [ret.]
 
P.S. I think that it is amazing how the "media" chooses our "heroes" these days...Elvis, Michael Jackson,  Whitney Houston & the like.
 
"SHIFTY" - an incredible American hero.

THANK YOU, TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES.
Last evening at 8 PM, you aired the movie whose story has been the basis for my work during this election campaign from the beginning:
"BONNIE AND CLYDE". To be more specific: Anybody but Bonnie and Clyde.
In fact, Donald Trump was not my first choice. I would have preferred Gov. Huckabee or Newt Gingrich. But the people have clearly spoken, at least to date; and that's good enough for me - so long as they VOTE. Meanwhile, I have found, while carefully ignoring the many mine-fields placed by the totally biased main Media, that there is much more to Trump than meets the eye - or nose.

Now comes the clear statements of Hillary herself, in the FBI documents just released, that she "can't remember" many things related to her personal e-mails and to the instructions given to her regarding the handling of Confidential or Secret information she was to receive and did receive as U.S. Secretary of State!  And this she attributes to her "concussion" a couple of years ago.
This personal admission places her medical, neurological and psychological condition squarely in play relating to her ability to serve in- and therefore to run for - the Presidency of the United States. 
"IS ANYBODY THERE? DOES ANYBODY CARE?"

AND NOW LET'S DISCUSS ONE OF THE SEVERAL "-ISMS",
THROUGH WHOSE ACCUSATIONS MADE BY FAR LEFT CRAZIES ARE DESIGNED TO ELIMINATE FREE SPEECH BY INTIMIDATION - AND EVEN BY PHYSICAL HARM.

LET'S CONSIDER "RACISM".
"Racism" goes back to the immediate descendants of Adam and Eve, who quickly established themselves into "Tribes".  And that tribalism continues unabated to this day...in every corner of the world and among all peoples.  The immediate corollary of that was and is "Us versus Them". In fact, America came to be due to the religious tribalism the Puritans were suffering in England. Then came the turn of other religions, of the Indians (including among themselves with a vengeance), of the Blacks from Africa (regarding whom Americans have nearly torn themselves apart for over two centuries), of the Chinese, the Catholics, the Irish, the Italians, the Jews, the Asians and most recently the Middle Eastern Muslims. 

This situation is and will continue to be inevitable - unless a relatively recent development (ie. beginning in the early 20th century) continues to gain currency.  Where practiced, it has proven to be very effective in overcoming Tribalism. That development is INTEGRATION INTO THE PREDOMINANT SOCIETY AND CULTURE, while maintaining their own tribal culture.
By contrast, insistence on isolation in one's own culture always produces intolerance, prejudice and "us versus them".  That is the choice of every new wave of immigrants - and of each of the tribes already here.

NOW HEAR THIS, BLACK AMERICA.  That is your choice. All of the other shades of ethnicity have been ready for a long time to integrate you into the predominant Society, where you can earn your place, as they all had to do.
Meanwhile, to correct a very nasty and isolationist quotation:
"ALL LIVES MATTER".

"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?"

Charles Krauthammer is underwhelmed by Donald Trump.  But he should see the difference between the possible actions of a businessman in a world where "business ethics" has been an oxymoron for decades...and the likely illegal machinations of a Secretary of State - for her benefit and to the detriment of her country.

Movie review for "Florence Foster Jenkins"

I don't recall ever walking out of a movie that featured Meryll Streep...before this one.  And that, despite the fact that I had promised myself beforehand not to do so, in deference to Ms. Streep.
But that I did. I am not into cruelty or sadism, not toward animals and certainly not toward fellow human beings.

You might want to read the story of Ms. Jenkins life in the Wikipedia account. Perhaps I should have done that before going.

Anyway, I have nothing good to say about those who surrounded her in real life.  And as for Ms. Jenkins, my diagnosis is Tertiary Syphilis and related psychosis. Was there not one person who loved her enough to shield her from her delusions?

So, did this movie, hurtful and once more depicting man's inhumanity to man, have to be made at all?

No Grade.
