The following is a KSCO commentary.  Here is Kay Zwerling:

          I wrote this in March 2007, and it is in my book. 

In our democratic society, how come the manner in which we elect our most important leader for President is not democratic?  

Whichever politician believes he or she has the wherewithal to be the leader of the greatest and most powerful country on our planet, that person must soon come to the realization that the only requirement is to have a war chest of around $100 million.  

This system must have been in place for so long that no one seems to question it.  It surely could not have been the norm when our country was new.

True, George Washington was a wealthy, and much loved patriot, so was Abraham Lincoln loved and worthy, but he was very poor, and he became President.  

At what point in our history did we exclude presidential candidates who may have been wonderful leaders while we looked only to those few who had lots of money, but otherwise would not have been considered as Presidential material at all?   That is where we are now.   

The cost of running for public office went up rapidly once TV became the perfect vehicle to showcase candidates.  

Let’s take Hillary Clinton – actually let’s not.  She has been a Presidential wannabe since she moved into the White House.

Remember that foolish campaign wording she wrote, “You will get two for the price of one.”  Whoever wanted Hillary in the first place?

Her only credential is that she is a woman, and that is not good enough.  She has accomplished nothing to make herself a viable candidate for the Presidency, except that she has a war chest of over $100 million.  And, oh yeah, she claims it takes a village to raise a child.  That is nonsense.

Some Democrats started the rumor that she is smartest woman in the world, and that is a crock, also.  

No wonder we wind up with mediocre leaders much of the time.   Franklin Delano Roosevelt was pretty good though he was a racist.  He could not find room in our country for a ship load of Holocaust victims so he sent them back to Germany to be annihilated.  

Back to Hillary – an empty suit, a contrived and staged creature who lives by the polls just like Bill did.   Her magnum opus was her government health plan and it was a disaster, discarded by the entire Congress.  She was a committed liar who would not remember anything while under oath.  She lied about her questionable documents while with the Rose law firm, and mysteriously had them brought forth anonymously many months later.  She and Bill helped themselves to furniture and other treasures that were not nailed down when they left the White House, and when ordered to return the furniture and artwork, they did so shamelessly.  And, now they both want another eight years in the White House?  God help us.   Their greatest flaw is their arrogance and underestimation of the intelligence of We The People.

The following is a KSCO commentary.  Here is Kay Zwerling:

          I wrote this in April 2006, and it is in my book.   It was also a Commentary at least twice, yet nothing has changed – the illegals are still coming in illegally. 

Weighing in on the present immigration mess – first close the borders, ignore the marchers who wish to undermine our laws, those here illegally must obey the laws, must learn English, vote in English, apply for citizenship, and wait the same amount of time as those who come in legally. 

No drivers’ licenses, no voting rights until they become legal citizens. 

That is what I think.  No more amnesty.  Furthermore, no more voting ballots in any language other than English.  That is idiotic.  No more pandering to foreign newcomers. 

All of these related troubles stem from weakling leaders in both political parties those whose main concern is, and has always been, re-election and vying for newcomers’ votes.  Those leaders willingly left the borders open.   Both political parties for over two decades are responsible for the 11 million illegals here.   Actually there must be more than twice that amount because I am talking about what was in April 2006. 

Thank you President Ford, thank you George Herbert Walker Bush, thank you President Clinton, and George W., for your deliberate failures.

Since the word felon has been used so loosely, and then crossed out, I submit it is our delinquent leaders, Presidents and Congress, who by their inaction in upholding the laws of our land, are the real felons.    

          And another thing – the tail must stop wagging the dog.  

          About the UCSC student protests – the students should be expelled for leaving their classes and We the People should withdraw our public funds helping them.  They are in school to learn their subject matter and not to make policy for the university and the country.  And, the wimpy delinquent faculty better shape up or they should be fired!   About the Regents who approve enormous salaries and bonuses to upper employees while denying raises to the lower employees who keep the university functioning, that is wrong!   The Regents should be replaced! 

          Better still – maybe the public university which We the People support, who have 85% liberal professors brainwashing our children, should be closed.

The following is a KSCO commentary.  Here is Kay Zwerling:

        For many years, countless numbers of WW2 veterans living in Central California, also veterans of subsequent wars have yearned for the promised Fort Ord veterans cemetery to become a reality.  These veterans, many now in their 80s, are referred to as the Greatest Generation – my generation – because we were all involved, we were together as a nation, and victory in war was more achievable then than now when our nation is very polarized and not together.  And, many have yet to grasp the danger of world Islamic terrorism.  

        Now, finally, after 14 years, AB3035, the Bill to create that Fort Ord cemetery, has been passed, and for that kudos to State Senator J. Denham, Assemblyman S. Salinas, and Congressman Sam Farr.  

        The Central Coast State Veterans Cemetery Endowment Fund is now charged with acquiring the initial $4 million to proceed with this project.  The yearly maintenance fund for the cemetery, however, will be the responsibility of the State.

        So, now, why don’t We The People use our creative thoughts and see how soon we can raise the necessary funds?

        Kudos, also, to WW2 veteran Paul Ventura of Pebble Beach for caring so much for this project to become a reality that for years he kept the desire alive and now also he has various ideas about how to raise the funds needed.

        If you would like to be involved in this project, call Paul Ventura at (831) 626-0377, or email Paul at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  

        Let’s all get involved in this worthy and much wanted project.  It is a way for us to say to those veterans who fought for us “With deepest sincerity and appreciation, we thank you for the huge sacrifice you have made by putting your lives on the line for our nation.”
