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.

Here are some more really big questions facing our national leaders.

Global terrorism and home-land security must remain Number 1 on our agenda.  But we would appreciate hearing from our would-be leaders about all the number 2's out there...and soon.


MONDAY, August 30, 2004

For a change, let's list some really big questions facing our national leaders, whoever they may be come January.  These have all been topics of lead articles of late:

When are our would-be leaders going to talk seriously about these problems, rather than fighting incessantly over a war that we lost over 30 years ago?   "Enough, already".

Did you hear the one about...


TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY, August 24 and 25, 2004

The following requires no comment:

Did you see the Denzel Washington interview with Katie Couric on NBC last Friday morning (13 August 2004)?

 Not many people are talking about it. They are wishing it would go away and are trying to sweep it under the rug.


Meryl Streep and Denzel were on the today show "live" with Katie Couric to talk about the movie "Manchurian Candidate."

At one point Katie asked Denzel, "have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11?" To which Denzel replied, "No, and I have no intentions on seeing it."  Katie and Meryl were "so noticeably" taken aback.  It was so cool!  Then, a discourse (or more preferably, a fight!) began between all three of them with Denzel being barraged with all kinds of anti-Bush, anti-republican comments, but "the man stood his ground" and soon enraged the women so much that they couldn't get a word in edgewise. Meryl Streep turned blood red and she sat with her legs crossed and her one leg shaking up and down, fuming!

Then Katie uttered the words that put the final nail in her coffin, she said to Denzel "you see, that's the problem I have with "you people."

She of course did not get to finish her sentence because Denzel pounced on her verbally by responding "YOU PEOPLE! YOU PEOPLE! Just what do you mean you people! Do you mean "You People" as in me as a Christian, or do you mean "You People" as in me as a REPUBLICAN?

She then tap danced her way through the next minute of the show.  But Denzel went out fighting and declaring that Fahrenheit 9/11 is nothing but propaganda and lies distorted to support a cynical democratic film director's views.

There's a celebrity that de serves to wear the uniform in movies and I don't mind at all.

A recent interview on National Public Radio regarding the future of democracy in Iraq was that the person being interviewed actually knew what he was talking about.  Retired Colonel Patrick Lang is the former Chief of Middle East Intelligence for the Defense Intelligence Agency.  In contrast to so many members of the liberal media and also the public (the "Anybody but Bush" crowd) who wring their hands (and hope for the worst?) over the wreckage-strewn efforts toward that end, Col. Lang expressed the insight that everything is going according to standard Middle East practice.  That is, the many factions always present are talking, lying, maneuvering, fighting and dying to obtain their maximum piece of the power pie.  The role of the U.S. in such a contest is to gradually compress the field of battle so as to focus attention to the point where negotiation or death are the only options.  This is what is being done, actually and figuratively, in Iraq and in Afganistan.  It's not pretty; but it's the right game plan...and it is going according to plan for that strange part of the world.

A very busy news cycle...and not much of it good.


SATURDAY, August 21, 2004


FRIDAY, August 20, 2004

There are two main themes underlying this Presidential election.  One comes from the "Anybody but Bush" crowd.  Folks, now do you really mean "anybody"?  The second pits those of us who stand for "America First" be distinguished from "Fortress America"...against the "internationalists", the "multilateralists", the "globalists" about whom I have commented recently in this section.  The projection of American strength and of single-minded purpose are producing results around the world:

Contrast this with the impotence and negligence of that great world body, the United Nations, with regard to the continuing disaster in and around Darfur, Sudan.   What a shame...again and again and again.


MONDAY through THURSDAY, August 16 through 19, 2004

It is getting harder and harder to keep up with the nonsense, hypocracy and cynicism belching forth from John Kerry...but I'll keep trying.



SUNDAY, August 15, 2004

A lot of issues for today.  Some of these, as has been the case throughout this section, relate to local problems involving New London, CT, often as reported in The Day.


MONDAY through SATURDAY, August 9 through 14, 2004

Too long an interval...but it was family time again.


SATURDAY and SUNDAY, August 7 and 8, 2004

Another busy news cycle.


THURSDAY and FRIDAY, August 5 and 6, 2004


SUNDAY through WEDNESDAY, August 1 through 4, 2004

There is developing a note of hysteria, not to mention irresponsibility, in the messages John Kerry and his Democrats have been sending this week: the President, that liar who "mis-led us into war", is now allegedly playing crass politics with intelligence regarding another terrorist attack on our homeland.  We don't need "Code Orange"; but we do need to adopt immediately all the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission...before most legislators including Senator Kerry have had a chance to read them in toto.   Such actions are not only divisive with regard to the conduct of this war; they are corrosive and subversive regarding the necessary level of trust citizens need to have in their leaders at such times of crisis.   These are voices of desperation.  Meanwhile, President Bush leads with a steady hand, supported by both diplomatic and military teams, as the news from both Afganistan and Iraq show more and more that the indiginous populations have gotten the idea: they must fight for their own freedom and democracy.  Senator Kerry, you are just not ready for prime time.
