"DON'T CRY FOR ME, ARGENTINA:.
There is a very useful saying in Italian: "CHI MI LO FAR' FARE?" "WHO MAKES ME DO IT"?
steadily increasing number of physicians are asking themselves this
question in these recent and current years, as they find themselves
mumbling: "I don't get no respect."
And they (we) don't. We find ourselves increasingly playing second
fiddle to the Suits and to the health insurance companies that are
practicing Medicine without a license... given their power of the
But Not I. I am a diagnostician, a clinician, a people - person...and I Would Rather Fight Than Switch.
Nevertheless, I do have choices, in this, my 65th year of medical practice - in addition to the practice of Health Law.
See: "What To Do If You Don't Want To Practice Clinical Medicine", by Allistair Gardiner (in MDLinx.com, November 22, 2021).
So: Don't Cry For Me, Argentina.
HOW ANOTHER "HALF" LIVES.
"Drug Trade" is very likely actively protected by every legitimate
government in the world with payoffs in the many billions of dollars.
why did the "legitimate governments" fighting for 20 (or was it 40 or
60) years in Afghanistan (which produces 90% of the world's opium
supply) not destroy that crop totally and permanently and logically
when they had the chance - replacing it with other cash crops? You can
find that modest proposal made several times in my Rapid Response
offerings during those years.
ABOUT "PRIOR AUTHORIZATIONS".
As I was saying - and am experiencing every day.
This is the Patient's Insurance! DO SOMETHING.

With help from my friend, I have discovered the Rosetta Stone for the fevered ruminations of the "WOKE" generations.
See the book: "Explaining Postmodernism. Skepticism And Socialism From Rousseau To Foucault", by Stephen R. C. Hicks
(Connor Court Publishing, 2019).
humans who have been unable - or as often unwilling - to thrive or even
cope with Civilization as developed by humans over eons and based upon
Free Will and Judeo-Christian mores have decided to throw away all the
existing rules and to impose a new set of rules by Force. These new
rules will be specifically designed to benefit those outliers - again
by Force. The inevitable result - sooner rather than later - will be
Trial by Combat, first at the ballot box in free and fair elections,
and then if necessary Mano a Mano.
Meanwhile, "let the games begin".

This is what it's all about.
Are you going to make things happen, watch things happen...or wonder "Wha Hoppen"?

This should be the END OF THE OLYMPICS ENTIRELY.
If fundamental fairness is removed from the exercise, the Olympic Medal is Fool's Gold for the participants.
Remove the massive profit - and see how quickly things return to biologic normal.
I USED TO CALL VIRULENT ANTI-BLACK RACIAL DISCRIMINATION "FOCAL IDIOPATHIC IDIOCY".
ANOTHER FORM OF IDIOCY HAS LARGELY TAKEN ITS PLACE IN RECENT YEARS:
"Never Trumpers". Where did this disease come from, other than from fear of his Effectiveness?
There is still no cure...other than from the man's own words.
Here, in his own words.

TRUER WORDS WERE NEVER SPOKEN.
And I have been saying and writing this for decades. JUST LOOK IT UP.
Lives Matter, the NAACP, and the other racial hucksters on the far-left
terrified of men like me. I’m a conservative black man, who is a
retired assistant fire chief, small business owner, and concerned
citizen running for Congress.
folks have been gaslighting Black Americans into believing they are on
our side, but over 60 years of failed progressive policies have proven
them to be nothing more than snake oil salesmen.
Just look at what they are doing and ask yourself if they are hurting or helping black America.
• Forcing us into lockdowns that create unemployment
• Defunding the police.
• Burning our cities and businesses to the ground.
• Promoting abortion on demand.
• Fighting against laws to improve election integrity.

America, then join my team so I can promote an agenda in Congress that

believe Black Babies’ Lives matter and that young girls should not be
forced to compete against male athletes. It’s unfair and causing Black
girls to lose college scholarships but the left doesn’t care that the
policies they champion are harming Black Americans.
while the NAACP believes professional athletes should turn down work
because they disagree with pro-life policies in Texas, I believe
hypocritical “social justice” and “civil rights” organizations need to
stay out of the business of bullying Americans about their place of

I'M AN UNDERLINER. BUT THIS ARTICLE IS ALSO FULL OF MY QUESTION- MARKS.
"Finding Cause For Optimism In The Glasgow Climate Pact", by Anji Seth,
(in ctmirror.org, ct viewpoints, November 24, 2021). The article is
replete with declaratory / conclusory statements that qualify more
prayers than facts - and that appear to have no understanding of the

nearly 89 years of age, as a physician, an attorney, a past public
office holder and a student, I'll withhold judgment on the Science
involved - but not on the Politics involved.
Meanwhile, "back at the ranch", robots are preparing to use advanced AI to make human beings their house pets.
GLOBAL WARMING: MORE....
See: "After COP26, EV's Galore!", by Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. (in WSJ November 24, 2021, Opinion, pA13).
ABOUT JUSTICE, AHMAUD ARBERY, KYLE RITTENHOUSE..AND SO MANY MORE.
See the article by Jason L. Riley in the WSJ (Opinion, November 24, 2021) entitled:
"Justice, Not Revenge, For Ahmaud Arbery And Kyle Rittenhouse".
All people of Good Will: please read it carefully.
All others, including our asterisk - president: SHUT UP!!
MONDAY and TUESDAY, November 22 and 23, 2021WHAT KYLE RITTENHOUSE WAS PUT THROUGH, EVEN BEFORE THE TRIAL:
"THERE OUGHT TO BE A LAW"
WELL - THERE IS A LAW, SEVERAL LAWS!

statement has been true since Cain killed Abel, since the first caveman
emerged from his cave with his first "tool" (a club), since the first
enslavements, the first wars, the first tyrannies....
And it has been true since the founding of America.
The American Revolution was our first Civil War. See: "Friends, Enemies, Countrymen", by Bartle Bull (in WSJ November 20,21, 2021, C7).
The "Civil War", with the decades leading up to it, was our second Civil War.
100 years during and following "Reconstruction", was certainly an
uneven civil war among southern Whites, Blacks and Abolitionists.
Viet Nam in its later years was a form of insurrection by a large percentage of Americans opposed by that construct of Lies.
now we have the possibility of more massive civil unrest, based upon
the Leftist excesses of 2016-2020, the suspicions and actions
surrounding the Election of 2020, the hare-brained and destructive
policies of the *Biden Administration, and the ignorance / stupidity of
too many of the current two younger generations. See: "The Impossible Insurrection of Jan. 6.", by Barton Swaim (WSJ Opinion, November 20-211, 2021).
Our "Fail-Safe" positions are the coming elections of 2022 and 2024.
If the results of those elections do not right our foundering Ship of State: PAST IS PROLOGUE.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY, November 19 and 20, 2021RR#1
"THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP" - NO...ACCORDING TO ME.
JAPAN: an important ally, especially now that it has decided to re-arm. And it has strong opinions re. Taiwan and China.
SOUTH KOREA: another ally, busy with the North.
NORTH KOREA: they will continue to arm, worried about China and Russia more than USA. Keep talking...and also feed them!
TAIWAN: "ONE CHINA"...BS. That ended a long time ago, when those people became INDEPENDENT. DEFEND THEM!
CHINA: our most dangerous Enemy! WAKE UP, AMERICA, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
that has become the "inscrutable" one, especially under the current
leadership. But I think it can be depended upon as a counterweight
against China and Pakistan.
PAKISTAN: a nuclear adversary in
disguise. The main reason, together with Russia and Iran, why we were
not allowed to "win" in Afghanistan! But they are playing a necessary
(for them) multi-faceted game. So we support them.
IRAN: A PERMANENT - AND NUCLEAR - ENEMY. Anything else is dangerous delusion or self-service, whether by us or by other nations.
SYRIA: a client State, and certainly not ours. Probably Russia's. And Turkey's permanent adversary.
TURKEY; a Leftist tyranny...and an undependable NATO ally. Can't do much about that for now.
RUSSIA / PUTIN: "I DON'T GET NO RESPECT": PUTIN AS DANGERFIELD. That's his problem and his motivation...and ours.
THE NATO MEMBERS AND THE EU. Dependable in a real crisis, but committed to individual self-service otherwise.
GREAT BRITAIN: always a dependable ally, especially since she left the EU. "Two peoples separated by a common language".
AND MEXICO: great land-mass protections from the rest of the
world...except for Russia - 90 miles away. But sometimes barely
ISRAEL: our 51st State. A great ally, our first line
of defense in an unpredictable and unstable neighborhood including
established nations like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE...and all of the
instability inherent in a divided Islam.
And then there is Us:
VERY DIVIDED POLITICALLY, thanks to the self-serving divisive work of
Democrats and Leftists on the Black Community over decades...and now
thanks to the failure of education and maturation of at least two
As some wise man has said: "YOU CAN'T TREAT STUPID!"
Here, please check out the "PERSIAN PROVERB" which I shared in this
section a few days ago. Regarding the Division: hang in there until the
elections of 2022 and 2024. If Common Sense and Patriotism and Morality
can't solve this problem...

The Truth is that McConnell and Trump had and have different roles and tasks to deal with.
President Trump accomplished many good things for the nation - as did McConnell during the four years of that Presidency.
My Rapid Response offerings during those years bear clear witness to those facts.
should work together in their current respective roles...for the sake
of the American people through the Republican Party. THE
ELECTIONS OF 2022 AND 2024 ARE IN NO WAY SHU-INS!
MORE INFORMATION REGARDING TRUMP'S LEGITIMATE CONCERNS.
See: "Republicans Rescue Biden's Agenda" (WSJ Editorial, November 8, 2021, pA16).
Meanwhile, of a piece with this is the vital question for the coming election cycles:
WHO AND WHAT ARE REPUBLICANS??
That had better be made very clear to the electorate very quickly. Or they will lose again...and again....
WHAT SHOULD BE "EXPECTED" IS LAW AND ORDER, SWIFT AND EFFECTIVE.
The criminal justice system must be able to operate free of outside influences - and especially free of intimidation.
Common Law, our national Constitution and its Amendments, and centuries of experience articulate and demand that.
All of those who break that expectation should be at least charged with a misdemeanor (one year in jail) and should each be tried in criminal court.
ACTIONS MUST HAVE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES! The alternative is Self-Help.
PLEASE RE-READ MY OFFERING ENTITLED "PERSIAN PROVERB".
Then read the article entitled: "Millennials, Put Away Childish Political Things", by Mary Eberstadt (in WSJ November 12, 2021, Opinion, pA17)
How are we to categorize many of our children and grandchildren: "FOOLS" or "STUDENTS"?
Whatever they are, we had a part in guiding and teaching them...Or Not!
let's give them the benefit of the doubt, and Teach Them at this later
stage on their lives...for their sake and also to enable more rational
outcomes in future elections for all of us.
AND WHILE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PERSIAN PROVERBS, "FOOLS" AND "STUDENTS",
let's consider Islam and some Muslims.
See the article: "Educating Girls Is An Islamic Obligation", by Mohammed and Nusselbeh, (in WSJ November 12, 2021, Opinion, pA15).
THIS IS "DOMESTIC TERRORISM"!! WHERE IS THE FBI AND THE LOCAL POLICE FORCE NOW?

MORE ON COVID 19 INFECTION AND AVOIDANCE.
Please read this report carefully. The temptation for the non-vaccinated to make ANOTHER MISTAKE will be great.
YOU DO NOT WANT TO CATCH THIS INFECTION. NO WAY!
IN MY REASONABLY INFORMED OPINION REGARDING GLOBAL WARMING AND HUMANITY...
And then there is this:
- GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL AND IS UPON US;
- IT IS MAINLY CYCLICAL OVER THE EXISTENCE OF THE EARTH.
- IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY CONTRIBUTED TO BY HUMAN ACTIVITY. THE DEGREE OF THIS CONTRIBUTION IS ?
- IT IS PRODUCING, AND WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE ADVERSE EFFECTS FOR HUMAN EXISTENCE.
- IT IS REASONABLE AND RESPONSIBLE FOR MAN TO REDUCE OR REVERSE THE INVOLVED HUMAN ACTIVITIES.
- SUCH ACTIONS MUST BE COMPATIBLE WITH AT LEAST THE CURRENT AND COMING GENERATIONS' NEEDS...OR THEY WILL BE IGNORED AND RESISTED.
ACTIONS MUST INVOLVE BOTH WEALTHY AND POOR NATIONS AND REGIONS, WITH
THE FORMER ASSISTING THE LATTER...OR THEY WILL BE IGNORED AND RESISTED.
- TODAY'S LEADERS MUST
ACTUALLY LEAD, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ABOVE FACTS - AND RESIST THE
USUAL TEMPTATION OF "LEADERS" TOWARD HYPERBOLE AND OBFUSCATION. FOR THE
ACTIONS THEY MAY PROPOSE STRIKE THEIR ELECTORATE WHERE THEY LIVE.
AND THEY ARE WATCHING.

> No sir, it’s Google Pizza.
> I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry.
> No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month.
> OK. I would like to order a pizza.
> Do you want your usual, sir?
> My usual? You know me?
According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you
ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni,
mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.
> Super! That’s what I’ll have.
May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula,
sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?
> What? I don’t want a vegetarian pizza!
> Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
> How the hell do you know that?
Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical
records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.
> Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetarian pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.
Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly.
According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol
tablets once at Lloyds Pharmacy, 4 months ago.

> That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.
> I paid in cash.

That doesn’t show on your latest tax returns, unless you bought them
using an undeclared income source, which is against the law!
> WHAT THE HELL!
> I’m sorry sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.
Enough already! I’m sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter,

internet, TV, where there is no phone service and no one to watch me or
spy on me.
