RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will
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
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
campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will
be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick",
by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.
That's all I promise.

This situation is a massive stain on American Society.

duty, with an extra initial year of remediation for those millions who

ARE THREE KINDS OF PEOPLE:
people who make things happen;
people who watch things happen;
and people who are constantly saying "Wha' Hoppen?"
A PERSIAN PROVERB puts it another way:
"He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool. Shun him.
He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a student.
He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep. Awaken him.
He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise. Follow him."

Unprecedented Religious Persecution Can't Go On
FRIDAY through TUESDAY, December 19 through 23,
Is that where we are going, by mindless commission and by cowardly
omission? Not me. It's time for large-scale arrests...for
actions including incitement to riot. And it's time for sovereign
States in this Republic to take back their jurisdiction over Public
Safety, instead of surrendering it to a Federal Justice Department
seemingly intent on practicing prosecutorial misconduct. ENOUGH!
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY, December 17 and 18,
MY MIND...in no particular order, but with gusto.
YOU HEAR ME NOW?
and its progeny. Is there prejudice? Is there dislike and even
contempt based upon valid observations? Is there police misconduct? Is
there a blue line of police cover-ups? Is there total disrespect on the
part of some Blacks for Law and Order? Are there criminals, bums and
anarchists out there just trying to foment disorder? Are there
high-profile pimps presenting themselves as "leaders" just to make
their own careers? Are there politicians who will do anything to get
re-elected? And are the reasons for the second-class status of too many
Blacks the result of their own irresponsibility? YES to all! So,
what are we all going to do about it?
As Senator Marco Rubio has declared, President Obama is either the
poorest negotiator in presidential history...or he is totally
unprincipled. I have always questioned the merits of 50 years of
a policy of isolation. But a change in that policy should achieve
more than the release of a few prisoners on both sides and greater
opportunity for more commerce. It should guarantee a better life
for the Cuban people. Was that even discussed?
They and much of Hollywood have been hoist on their own arrogance. You
simply DON'T play with the idea of killing a sitting world
leader. There has to be an understanding among those leaders that
assassination is simply not done. For any nation can kill another
nation's leader at will. That's why George W. Bush was so
incensed at Saddam Hussein for having planned precisely that on his
TERRORISTS BY ANY NAME ARE NOT ISLAMIC - or I hope that they are not
Islamic. If they are not, true Muslims must destroy them. If they
are, enter World War lll, aka "The Last Crusade".
ENERGY INDEPENDENCE. We have and must take the opportunity to achieve
this, even to the extent to becoming a strong energy exporting nation,
in order to re-set the balance of power in this world, now centered
among nations that we can never trust. Fracking is unhealthy. So is
coal mining, oil drilling on land or sea, laying waste to forests and
open land, etc.
Baloney! The Far Left always tries to capture the vocabulary of
controversy in order to control the discourse. Please see my
recent Rapid Response offering on this subject. And add to that a
recent Editorial in the NYTimes entitled: "Torture By Psychologists and
Doctors". More Baloney! Enhanced Interrogation will always be applied
when the stakes are high enough, even for the benefit of the feckless
Far Left. And it will always be psychologists and physicians that
will be be called upon to prevent physical injury from such
methods. That is not "unethical". That is pre-emptive
self-defense and is entirely moral and ethical.
REFORM. How stupid can the Republican Party be? Very Stupid. There are
all kinds of moral - ethical, equitable and demographic - practical -
political reasons to address and solve this self-induced problem. WAKE
UP, before you end up as the third Party in a Two Party political
WANT PEACE? PREPARE FOR WAR". America must always field a strong

performing, are definitely not examples.

an old woman died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in
Saskatchewan, it was believed that she had nothing left
any value. Later, when the nurses were going through her
possessions, they found this poem.
quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were
and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse
her copy to Alberta.
old woman's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the
edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association
Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based
his simple, but eloquent, poem.
this little old woman, with nothing left to give to the world, is now
author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.
do you see nurses? .. .. .. What do you see?
are you thinking .. .. .. when you're looking at me?
crabby old lady .. .. .. not very wise,
of habit .. .. .. with faraway eyes?
dribbles her food .. .. .. and makes no reply.
you say in a loud voice .. .. .. 'I do wish you'd try!'
seems not to notice .. .. .. the things that you do.
forever is losing .. .. .. A sock or shoe?
resisting or not .. .. .. lets you do as you will,
bathing and feeding .. .. .. a long day to fill?
that what you're thinking? .. .. .. Is that what you see?
open your eyes, nurse .. .. .. you're not looking at me.
tell you who I am .. .. .. As I sit here so still,
I do at your bidding, .. .. .. as I eat at your will.
a small girl of Ten .. .. .. with a father and mother,
and sisters .. .. .. who love one another.
young girl of Sixteen .. .. .. with wings on her feet.
that soon now .. .. .. a lover she'll meet.
bride soon at Twenty .. .. .. my heart gives a leap.
the vows .. .. .. that I promised to keep.
Twenty-Five, now .. .. .. I have young of my own.

to each other .. .. .. With ties that should last.
Forty, my young sons .. .. .. have grown and are gone,

look at the future .. .. .. and shudder with dread.

I think of the years .. .. .. and the love that I've known.

is now a stone .. .. .. where I once had a heart.
inside this old carcass .. .. .. a young girl still dwells,
now and again .. .. .. my battered heart swells.
remember the joys .. .. .. I remember the pain.
I'm loving and living .. .. .. life over again.

new face of the GOP
to a bloodbath in the midterm elections, Republicans now control both
the House and Senate, and they are setting their sights on the White
House for 2016. They are undoubtedly energized by young and diverse
representatives such as Mia Love, the first African American Republican
woman in the House, and Elise Stefanik, the youngest woman to be
elected to Congress.
West Virginia, Saira Blair won a seat in House of Delegates, becoming
the nation’s youngest elected state legislator.
and her father, state Sen. Craig Blair, sat down with Yahoo Global News
anchor Katie Couric to discuss her inspiration to run, her historic
win, and hope for her generation in the political process. “My
generation is going to have $17 trillion of debt on our hands. And we
deserve at least one vote in the House of Delegates. Because we
shouldn't have to wait until we're 30, 40, 50 or 60 to understand the
importance of conservative principles,” Blair said.
Williams, deputy director of the Republican National Committee, is
tasked with spreading the Republican message to the younger generation.
Borrowing the strategy of President Barack Obama’s groundbreaking
Internet campaign, he says, “We have a new digital and data program
that is … using social media and leveraging it to target voters in new
then there are online news sites, such as the Independent Journal
Review with over 24 million views monthly, that reach millennials and
bring them up to speed in politics and culture on an entertaining way.
despite the strides the GOP is making toward a more diverse leadership,
the age gap in voting preferences that emerged in 2004 has remained
evident in the past four election cycles. Voters who are 18 to 29 vote
Democrat, and those older than 65 lean Republican.
to the Pew Research Center, “Millennials stand out for voting heavily
Democratic and for liberal views on many political and social issues,
ranging from a belief in an activist government to support for same-sex
marriage and marijuana legalization.”
millennial Republicans like Blair have a lot of work to do before the
Grand Old Party begins to look young.

REGARDING "TORTURE", AND THE TORTURED LOGIC
When this subject came up initially in the mid-2000's, I expressed my
opinions in the then-"Rapid Response" offerings, searchable if one is
In the days since publication of the one-sided report on "torture" by
Senator Dianne Finestein's committee, nearly everyone has expressed an
opinion. I have reviewed most of those offerings. I suggest
two for general perusal: a) "A Flawed Report's Important Lesson", by
Peggy Noonan, WSJ Dec. 13-14, 2014, Opinion, pA13; and b) "A travesty
Of A Report Seeks History Rewrite", by Charles Krauthammer, in The Day
Dec. 12, 2014, Opinion, pA6.
Where we must really begin and end is with the abuse of the word
"torture" in this context. Encyclopedia Britannica defines it as
"a general term for methods of intense pain...." Webster's Dictionary
describes "the infliction of intense pain...." Article l of the U.N.
Convention Against Torture is also informative, although including the
caveat "if not lawful" (?).
In my opinion, the term "torture" would require the outcome of physical
injury and not only pain, fear, etc. It is my understanding that
substantial efforts were made to avoid injury from the practices in
question, including medical monitoring. In my opinion, such methods
should only be used when an existential threat exists to a people - as
was and is the case vis a vis the terrorists around us in the last two
decades. And with that justification and with the proviso regarding
avoidance of physical injury, the practices in question were not
torture, were ethically assisted by medical personnel, and were
justified...all the unending conclusory statements to the contrary
notwithstanding. Now: will anyone actually use that reasoning to
justify the practices in question, instead of capitulating to the
incorrect, political and cynical misuse of the word "torture"?
