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.

O.J.SIMPSON: GUILTY OF MURDER?
I don't know. You don't know. And no one will ever know.
That's because of the LOUSY JOB Judge Ito did while presiding over that case.

In criminal cases, I always defer to the Jury. In this case, they came back with a Not Guilty verdict. Then came the Civil case, with a much lower and grossly inappropriate level of proof required (51% vs 90+%) for a capital case. I viewed that as a form of Double Jeopardy.

Then came Simpson's STUPID decision to go after his stolen property himself. That resulted in a sentence which was in my opinion grossly excessive.
Now, after a correction through the Parole process, the attorney -general of Florida wishes to add her own sentence.
This is not Justice. This has been mob rule by TV and social media.
I once expressed clearly my opinion about the poor work of

Judge Ito at a conference on the subject held at University of Connecticut School of Law (my alma mater) in the presence of several of the prime participants in that case. My comments were met with a deafening silence.
Wither O.J.Simpson?

'"JUSTICE IS MINE. I SHALL REPAY", SAYETH THE LORD"'.
Meanwhile, he should be allowed to conduct the rest of his life as a private citizen - if he doesn't go STUPID  again.

At least that's some of what I learned in Law School.

SHALL WE HIRE A MONUMENT ENGRAVER TO GO TO
ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY  AND ADD THE MISSING WORDS?

THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM AN APPALLED OBSERVER:
 
Today I went to visit the new World War II Memorial in Washington,DC.
I got an unexpected history lesson. Because I'm a baby boomer,
I was one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my parents,
Veterans of 'the greatest war,' with their families. It was a beautiful day,
and people were smiling and happy to be there. Hundreds of us milled
around the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eisenhower and Truman
that are engraved there.

On the Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read the words
President Roosevelt used to announce the attack on Pearl Harbor :

'Yesterday, December 7, 1941--a date which will live in infamy--
the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked.'

One elderly woman read the words aloud:

'With confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding
determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph.'
 
But as she read, she was suddenly turned angry. 'Wait a minute,' she said,
'they left out the end of the quote. They left out the most important part.
Roosevelt ended the message with

'so help us God.'

Her husband said, 'You are probably right. We're not
supposed to say things like that now.'

'I know I'm right,' she insisted. 'I remember the speech.' The two looked dismayed,
shook their heads sadly and walked away.

Listening to their conversation, I thought to myself,
'Well, it has been over 50 years; she's probably forgotten.'

But she had not forgotten.
  She was right...

I went home and pulled out the book my book club is reading ---
'Flags of Our Fathers' by James Bradley.
It's all about the battle at IwoJima.

I haven't gotten too far in the book. It's tough to read because
it's a graphic description of the WWII battles in the Pacific.

But right there it was on page 58.Roosevelt's speech to the nation ends in
'so help us God   ..'

The people who edited out that part of the speech when they engraved
it on the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the war!
But they couldn't fool the people who were there.
Roosevelt's words are engraved on their hearts.

Now I ask:
 
'WHO GAVE THEM THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE WORDS OF OUR HISTORY???'

People today are trying to change the history of America by leaving God
out of it, but the truth is, God has been a part of this nation, since the beginning.
He still wants to be...and He always will be!

GS

Ted Nugent

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don't know where that is, just Google it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won't be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience. Then take a knee.
Then, take one at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces...the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.

Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. from Khe San to Saigon... Anywhere will do. REAL Americans died in all those jungles. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat... Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress... Your number won't be printed on it unless your number is up! You'll need to stay hydrated but there won't be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You're on your own.

There's a lot of places to take a knee. Real Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That's what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.
While you're on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken...but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains...every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.

No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans...just American men and women...delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us...blazing a path so you would have 'the right to take a knee.'

You haven't an inkling what it took to get you where you are; but your 'protest' is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is issued to another...

If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we'll both kneel before Almighty God. We'll thank Him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We'll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We'll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We'll pray for liberty and justice for all...because He is the one who provides those things.
And there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave It goes like this...

"GOD BLESS AMERICA!"

IT HAS BEGUN:
the repudiation of feckless Republicrats through the Primary process in preparation for the 2018 national elections.

And it is entirely in keeping with President Trump's efforts to restore Republican principles to the governance of this nation.

GS


Fellow Conservative,
Thanks in no small measure to your help, Judge Roy Moore has just defeated Mitch McConnell's crony "Big Luther" Strange and become the Republican nominee for United States Senate in Alabama.  If he prevails in December, Judge Moore will fill the seat that Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated to lead the Department of Justice.

This was not just a defeat.  It was a good old fashioned butt-kicking.  McConnell had pulled out all the stops and all the usual suspects in the Republican establishment had opened their wallets to outspend Judge Moore 20-1.  It didn't work.  Alabama's Republicans gave Moore a smashing victory!



This was a grand repudiation of Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment, and will, we hope represent the beginning of many successful primary challenges to the dozens of squishy Republican Senators who have refused to do in Washington what they promised.

I want to thank you again for your support, because you made this possible.  I also want to remind you that tomorrow starts a new campaign: one against the liberal Democrat nominee where Judge Moore will no doubt be called all of the terrible things he was called in this primary, and worse.

And this time his opponent is not a squishy Republican.  It's much worse.  His opponent is Doug Jones, an ultra-liberal zealot best known as one of the most liberal members of Bill Clinton's Justice Department under Janet Reno.

Please read the first 70% of Paul Choiniere's most recent article in The Day, Sept. 26, 2017. Personal, heartfelt and right on point.
Then something happened on the way to the printing press.

Just so you know: this nation became badly divided with the rise of the "Leftist" gang of the Democratic Party, with Black racism, with the flouting of all Immigration Laws, and with eight years of an arrogant Obama administration. Donald Trump won by making and demonstrating that diagnosis.  The recent Primary win by Judge Moore in Alabama is another of many election laboratory results that will support that division throughout 2018.
What to do? RESTORE BALANCE, which is what the President is trying to do.

5) Pope Francis. You have earned your black eye. Now is the time for decisions "Ex Cathedra"...or for your eventual relegation to the list of many mediocrities of the Papacy.
6) North Korea (and Iran). Truth: you can't stop a nation from becoming Nuclear if it is determined to do so and if it has the backing of one or more existing Nuclear nations. So, draw the line at USE. USE = DESTRUCTION. Back to the Cold War (we hope).
7) "The Black Community", at least those who have allowed themselves to be led by the Democratic Party and by cynical and self-serving "leaders". These are the worst "racists" today, although we will always have insane and ignorant racists on all races against other races. The vast majority of Americans are good people waiting for a chance to embrace other people of all races who integrate and absorb into American life without losing their own heritage. The Irish and the Italians are two examples of this successful transition. But Americans will not accept this Black Racism.
Other immigrant races should take heed.
8) Yes, Americans are divided...and it's a good thing after the disastrous direction of the last 8 years. We now have a chance to restore the balance afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution and by our history to date. This is a fight that's worth the effort, as long as it takes. Democrat - Leftists and Republican - RINO's take heed.
The rest of the world should also take notice. The alternative is the Suicide of Europe (aka the book entitled "The Strange Death of Europe" recently published).

MORE ON OUR INCREASINGLY UN-CIVIL CIVIL WAR.
One of the many benefits to this country of getting out of the Obama era barely in time has been the diagnosis of a social cancer that had begun to metastasize: the Leftist Agenda. The election of President Donald Trump was such a shock to the system of these Leftists that their resultant hysterical delusions have revealed that Agenda in all of its anti-American detail. Nowhere has that been more evident than in what has been going on within and without our college campuses - our "Institutions of Higher Learning", as the saying goes.
The latest evidence for this is chronicled in a valuable recent article:
"Higher Ed's Latest Taboo Is 'Bourgeois Norms'", by Heather Mac Donald (WSJ Sept. 19, 2017, Opinion, pA17.
Whether by "medical means" (ie. public opinion, the power of the purse, the ballot box...) or surgical means (ie. changing "cIVIL WAR to CIVIL WAR), a Leftist overthrow of our American constitutional democracy will not succeed. The first dose of medicine has been administered in the 2016 elections. The choice of the remainder of the "treatment" is in the hands of the Leftists, at least in the near-term.
This is unfortunately not hyperbole.

GS

OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents!

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in
the last election...  While everyone is focusing on Arizona's new law,
look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

An update from Oklahoma:
Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten
Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in
D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake Hey this is a
conservative state, based on Christian values... HB 1330
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all
illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless
they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all
scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal
Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently they passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all
illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative
purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring   Oklahoma as a
Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining,
Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.

More states  are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the
Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi
and Florida.  Save your confederate money, it appears the South is
about to rise up once
again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns.
Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state
have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm
sure that was a setback for the criminals  The Liberals didn't like
it-
But...
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL
drivers' license exams will be printed in English and only English and
no other language.  They have been called racist for doing this, but
the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only.  If you
want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really
simple
By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either.

Guess what... who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

It is also clear that she has no understanding - or won't acknowledge it - of the cIVIL War that her Leftist colleagues have unleashed on this country. Not smart.
If rational liberal Democrats do not see this and correct it, they will be in the same position as moderate Muslims and their Fundamentalist crazies: A Pox On All Their Houses.

TO PARAPHRASE RICK IN "CASABLANCA":
"ALAN, I THINK THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP".
For many years, I considered Professor Alan Dershowitz a committed Liberal often leaning further Left. However, that opinion has changed with the numerous comments and articles that he has presented in recent months. The man is now not only erudite, but he is also measured and reasonable.
The article offered below should be read carefully. It has much to say about "The Hard Right And Hard Left". This is especially relevant in these times of riots dangerously permitted by Law Enforcement. Such violence perpetrated by anyone is tantamount to the famous exclusion of "crying 'Fire' in a crowded theater" from any protection under the First Amendment.
And what about the current law enforcement tactics which appear to have become SOP for police officers? Some of those tactics seem to place both police and their quarry in unnecessary danger, too often with tragic and avoidable results. I intend to research this matter further, and will share my findings at a later date. Meanwhile, "peace officers" must keep the peace with effective means and with serious consequences for any who breach that universal requirement for a stable society.

Please see: "The Hard Right And Hard Left Pose Different Dangers", by Alan M. Dershowitz, WSJ Sept. 11, Opinion, pA17.

When  I was a kid, I couldn't understand why Eisenhower was so  popular.  Maybe this will explain why...

       General Eisenhower  Warned  Us.

        It  is a matter of history  that  when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General  Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he  ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the  German people from surrounding villages to be ushered  through the camps and even made to bury the  dead.
He did this because he said in words to this  effect:
'Get it all on record now - get the films -  get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of  history some bastard will get up and say that this never  happened'
This week, the UK debated whether to  remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it  'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never  occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a  frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world  and how easily each country is giving into it.
It  is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in  Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial  chain, in memory of the, six million Jews, 20 million  Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic  priests Who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved,  beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while many in  the world looked the other way!
Now, more than  ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to  be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

        This  e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people! Be a link  in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the  world.
How many years will it be before the attack  on the World Trade Center 
'NEVER  HAPPENED',

        Because  it offends some Muslims???
Or some other people whom feel offended?  Or decide the past is not "politicaly" correct?

Stop Blaming Trump
By Ben Stein's DREEMZ

This is almost too perfect. In the 20th century, in perfect conformity with law in a constitutional republic, a number of states and cities erected statues to local heroes. These heroes were sometimes Confederate soldiers. Now, no sane person thinks human slavery was or is anything but repulsive. But fighting for your neighbors and your friends, well, that’s something else again. We often put up monuments to war heroes who do things that in retrospect look bad. Much of the United Kingdom is dotted with memorials to heroic, super brave Empire flyers whose job was — to put it plainly — terror bombing of German women and children. So, monuments sometime go up that turn out to be questionable morally.

Still, the Confederate monuments are up there in accordance with law. The people who are vandalizing them, tearing them down, urinating on them — they’re the law breakers. Maybe, in time, under legal procedures, the memorials to Confederate generals will come down and that’s the way a democracy works.
But to spit on President Trump because he says,"Obey the law and respect what the law ordained," well, that’s just anarchy. Why are we so happy about anarchy? It never ends well.
And in the same vein, I see in the newspapers that most of the statues in question were put up in and around the 1920s. That’s almost a century ago. Why has it taken so long to get around to desecrating them and realizing how morally odious they are? Isn’t this just another example of the mainstream media Trump horror of the day? Who’ll take my bet that it will soon be forgotten and we’ll pass on to another Trump war crime?

And if it isn’t forgotten, if the struggle to make war on inanimate objects goes on for a decade, will it raise the math proficiency scores of Chicago high school students by one percent? Will tearing down the Gallant Pelham make one black father stay home with his son? Will sawing off the nose of Jefferson Davis keep one young man from joining a gang? It’s all just excuses and blame shifting. To read more of Ben Stein's article, go to The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes cast him as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

An interesting read from a military lifer about Presidents

You will find this interesting.  For the non-military oriented, this man is the retired Chief Master Sergeant OF the Air Force, not IN the Air Force., whose office was in the Pentagon. That's the single, highest ranking non-officer in the entire Air Force as indicated by the very busy area mixed in his stripes.

by George Roof, Chief Master Sergeant, USAF (Retired)

Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine.  I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about.  I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that bastard Robert McNamara , LB Johnson, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.

After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his ass waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show.  Nixon was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.

Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy 'Peanuts' Carter who’d been funded by Saudi money.  The military was turned into Section 8 and even the Whitehouse suffered the austerity.
 
Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray.  He not only loved the country and the military, they loved him back.  Esprit d’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy 'Peanuts' were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.

Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.
 
Welcome to Bill Clinton.  Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the 'Oral' Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation.  He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.

I actually felt sorry for Bush 2.  He was doomed to infamy from the start.  He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of WWII when they were 'simply socialists' waiting to feed him to the sharks.
 
Then there came the Manchurian Candidate Obama with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been 'sealed.'  (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle , OR their two faked kids.) From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissention of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.”  That was mild to the crap that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us bullshit about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries.  Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority.  By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle.  No one had balls to impeach this charlatan Obama.

Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice Scalia suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split.  Finally, Congress shows some balls and rejects Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nomination.  The Libertards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros 'has paid' demonstrators to cause turmoil at 'all the Republican gatherings.'  Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts.  Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.

But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum.
Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince middle America not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp.  It was time.  Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform.  Ohio and Pennsylvania , where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote,.... and creamed it.

The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated.  An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the old hag Ginsburg who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually retire and leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.

 Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election 'was' rigged.  They even advocated having the election repeated.  They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon.  They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.

This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone.  They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-assed whimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see.  At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time.  If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us.  Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America.  Donald Trump has done more in his short time in the public eye...he prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming president!
So for you liberal lurkers and you half-assed fence-sitters, Tough Shit!  You had your big hurrah and now your party is over.  For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves.  You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BASTARDS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril.  You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace.

This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN.  Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you 'forfeit' your American citizenship, ......

YES, HE IS YOUR PRESIDENT!!!!

9) What's all this about "LGBT"? Let's not go back to the future, the 1970's when the biologic reality of Homosexuality, beginning in the womb, was understandably demonized by the "public baths" and scores of sexual contacts per individuals that were made known to the public, together with the terrible AIDS epidemic of the 1980's and 1990's - a direct result of those activities. The "LGBT Community" is at risk of making the same mistake by hyping their situation into a plight and a blight.
See the article by Julia Werth in ctmirror.org, Aug. 27, 2017.
10) The Opioid Crisis. Once again the Government operates with a bludgeon instead of with a scalpel. In the 1990's physicians were severely taken to task for "not taking care of Pain". The vast majority responded responsibly. The vast majority of physicians had nothing to do with the subsequent diversion of opioids to criminal use. So now physicians are effectively being driven out of prescribing narcotics with the often draconian regulations that put their medical licenses at risk. The maxim "First Do No Harm" ("Primum Non Nocere") does not necessarily include a requirement for me to put myself at serious personal risk.

IN A NUTSHELL.
"In a democracy the people always get what they deserve".

GS

Be sure to Read the Poem at the end.
Charley Reese's final column for the Orlando Sentinel...
He has been a journalist for 49 years.
He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
 
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican nor democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day.
 
It's a relatively short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!
 
545 vs. 300,000,000 People- by Charlie Reese
 
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
 
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
 
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
 
You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.
 
You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.
 
The House of Representatives does.
 
You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.
 
You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.
 
You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
 
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
 
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
 
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.
 
The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.
 
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
 
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
 
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.
 
Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.
 
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
 
If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.
 
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ... If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.
 
There are no insoluble government problems.
 
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
 
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
 
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power. They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses, provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...
 
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!
 
What you do with this article now that you have read it... is up to you.
 
This might be funny if it weren't so true.
 
Be sure to read all the way to the end:
Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table, at which he's fed.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay, he works for peanuts anyway!

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways to tax his ass.
Tax all he has, then let him know that you won't be done till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;then tax him some more, tax him till he's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod into which he's laid...
Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom..."
When he's gone, do not relax,
it’s time to apply, the Inheritance tax.
