RESPONSE...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.

CAN AMERICANS AVOID A FURTHER
DESCENT INTO THIS CURRENT PANDEMIC OF STUPIDITY AND SELFISHNESS?
This race to the bottom is well
under way - and the answer will come with the November, 2024 elections.
Meanwhile, this Video offers a clear
battle plan to achieve this end.
"AVANTI IN SU",
as my father said as he fought in the Dolomite Alps in WW l...and as he urged
his children throughout his life.

SEE : "THE COMING
COLLAPSE OF THE U.S.HEALTH CARE SYSTEM", by Robert Glatter, M.D.
and Peter Papadakos, M.D.
This is REAL, folks.
And it doesn't even mention the
constantly increasing abusive, self-serving and often duplicative demands being
made by Medicare and by commercial health insurance payors for
"records" and for professional documentation - even on a quarterly basis
when the only datum that has changed in the interim is the professional's
To this add the abuse of
requirements for "Prior thorization" before a physician-prescribed
service or substance can be paid - and therefore made available to the patient.
The sum total of this is substantial
increases in the payor's bottom line at the expense of the professionals
providing the health care services.
The Losers here: the Patients and
This cannot be sustained. Thus:
"THE COMING COLLAPSE...."

protected the rights of parents. We have respected our taxpayers, and
we reject woke ideology. We fight the woke in the legislature. We fight

I have already recommended one
article that describes the despotic Speakership just ended, versus that which
has been imposed on Speaker McCarthy:

long-time analyst, whose offering is enhanced by the fact that her long

With rare exception, generally from
the WSJ and on Fox News, there is no longer unbiased journalistic
There are half-truths and outright
bias on every page.
Example: look up the Newsweek
article (and numerous other reports) that describe the recent House Republican
negotiations as distorting or weakening the Speaker's role and latitude in
conducting the nation's business.
In fact, LOOK THEM UP. The changes
negotiated alter the Speaker's role from DESPOT to democratic representative
(small "d") of his colleagues and of the people who elected them all.

DOCTORS AND THEIR PATIENTS GENERALLY
KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE DOCTORS MAKE A WRONG DIAGNOSIS.
And the Republican Political Doctors
made a wrong diagnosis regarding the poor outcome for them in the November,
They attributed the results to an
anti - Trump vote. WRONG.
The result was directly attributable
to the Poison Pill of American Politics: ABORTION.
If the USSC had announced its
decision after the election, the Republican Party would have wrested
control of both the House and the Senate from the Democrats.
And the mess of the House
Speakership election is the direct result of that misdiagnosis and the
frustration that followed.
There are ample excellent analyses
of what is now going on, much better than I can offer. I urge their review on
the reader, for your sake and for that of our nation.
Meanwhile, some Republicans marvel
at the "discipline" of the Democrat House members in their constant
voting unanimity...in supporting positions and actions like the erasure of our
national southern border with the influx of millions of unknown foreigners
throughout our cities and neighborhoods; support of lawlessness on our streets
and in our courts; enabling of raw sex experimentation on even very young
children; the killing of human beings in abortion; the bankrupting of our
nation; complete erasure of any semblance of morality, personal or societal....

"REPUBLICANS"? AND HOW MANY KINDS ARE THEY?
There can only be ONE KIND OF
"REPUBLICAN": A PERSONALLY AND POLITICALLY CONSERVATIVE PERSON WHO
STANDS AND FIGHTS AGAINST EVERY BIT OF THE ABOVE NOTED MADNESS, for the benefit
of his country - and even at his personal expense.
If the current Speakership exercise
ends up producing that, it will have been worth it...and we as a nation will

WIN", by Kimberly Strassel ((in WSJ Janury 6, 2023, Opinion,
AS A GROUP OF REPUBLICAN MEMBERS (TOO
FEW, IT TURNS OUT) TRY TO RETURN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO A
an equally serious change in our
system of "self-governance" has taken place in recent decades,
something which I appreciated during a Law School course:
American Law is supposed to be
enacted by ELECTED representatives of the PEOPLE - and administered
by non-elected hired workers under the theoretical control of the President. It
became clear to me that that had long ceased to be the case, with resulting
great loss of influence and control by the People on how and by whom they were
being controlled. Although Serious and un-democratic on its face, I did not
realize the broader implications of those changes on the nation's entire
structure and function.
Now comes an excellent article on
the subject that bodes ill and dangerous for our national integrity unless
