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.

Well, once again a vacation out West has worked its magic.  After a difficult five months of coping with a suddenly growing medical practice (in our 52nd year, thanks to ObamaCare subsidies for Husky patients) and other issues, these twelve days away in the Rocky Mountains (Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Colorado) have been "just what the doctor ordered".  And to have shared it with two of my sons and families is a big bonus. Back to full strength, piss and vinegar.
During this time I have paid some attention to happenings nationwide and worldwide.  Suffice to say that there are many horses out West; but there are more horses' asses in the East.  And of course, California is  a "special case'. 
I have also had time to read two books which in my opinion cannot be missed:

1) "Legends And Lies: The Real West", by Bill O"Reilly and David Fisher, Henry Holt and Co., New York, c2015.
2) "Things That Matter", by Charles Krauthammer, Crown Forum, New York, 2013,2015.

HOORAY – A 53-46 vote

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11. It: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION and DISARMAMENT of all UN countries”.

By a 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution. HOORAY.

This is that brief, glorious moment in history when everyone stands around...reloading.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known ! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legis..traitors”… vote against them.

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Senate Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on  all  private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.

Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.:

Baldwin (D-WI)  

Baucus (D-MT)

Bennett (D-CO)

Blumenthal (D-CT)

Boxer (D-CA)

The real "thigh-slappers" are always true.


A good laugh for people in the over 60 group!
When I bought my Blackberry, I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter.
I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses,
my 13 grand kids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way.
I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of space.
My phone was beeping every three minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell phone in the garage in my golf bag.
The kids bought me a GPS for my last birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with the Blue tooth [it's red] phone I am supposed to use when I drive.
I wore it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.
I mean the GPS looked pretty smart on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying, rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would sarcastically say, "Re-calc-u-lating." You would think that she could be nicer It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good relationship...
When I get really lost now, I call my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and while she is starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she loves me.
 To be perfectly frank, I am still trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how I lose three phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions, checking bathrooms, and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.
The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every time I go to the
grocery store. You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I never remember to take them with me.
Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual."  Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look.
I was recently asked if I tweet. I answered, "No, but I do fart a lot."

P.S. I know some of you are not over 60. I sent it to you to allow you to forward it to those who are. I figured your sense of humor could handle it.
We senior citizens don't need any more gadgets.
The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we can handle.

Large segments of our populace have lost - or never gained - the power of critical thinking, thanks to the pablum they were fed during their schooling.  For the rest of us: "Keep you powder dry".


U.S. Counterterrorism at Risk - American Center for Democracy



Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: "WOW!! WHAT A RIDE!"

I have for decades been disappointed with the Church on this subject, especially during the tenure of the last two Popes. 
For "Liberation Theology" to be equated with "Socialism" and with "Communism" requires that the predominant political philosophy operative in Latin America, especially as regards ownership of land, be called "Fascism".  Thank God for Pope Francis.

Legitimate police methods must be re-established, as must public respect for the Law in all venues. Mindless rioting is no substitute.


Alan Dershowitz: Charges Against Baltimore Cops Won't Stick - NewsMax.Com

FRIDAY, May 1, 2015

Meanwhile, Bill O'Reilly has outdone himself this week in his daily series of  "Talking Points" on the O'Reilly Show.  The topic, of course, has been the sad and dangerous events in Baltimore and other cities. He is one of the very few who has made the right diagnoses regarding "root causes".  The criminals and idiots - and here I include their "leaders" - have set back the opinions and regard of our larger society 40 years. 
What a Shame!
