Kay Commentary 2012-08-11

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

          I read this little gem for the first time in May 2010 and it was sent to me from listener Gene Sanden.   It is called “God is busy”.   If you do not know God, do not make stupid remarks.

          A United States Marine was attending some college courses between assignments.  He had complete missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.  One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and member of ACLU.  

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in.   He looked up to the ceiling and flatly stated “God, if You are real, then I want You to knock me off this platform.  I will give You exactly 15 minutes.” 

The lecture room fell silent.  You could hear a pin drop.   Ten minutes went by, and the professor proclaimed “Here I am, God.  I am still waiting.”  It got down to the last couple minutes, when the Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him, knocking him off the platform.   The professor was out cold.   The Marine went back to his seat, and sat there silently.  The other students were shocked, stunned, and sat there looking on in silence.  The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked “What in the world is the matter with you?  Why did you do that?”  The Marine calmly replied “God was too busy today protecting American soldiers who are protecting you and your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot.  So, He sent me.”  The classroom erupted in cheers.  

          This is good.  Keep it going.  Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly.  

          Sincerely,

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay Commentary 2012-08-04

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

          These are two random thoughts.  One is Donald Trump’s, and one is mine, and I will read mine first.

Random thought #1:   Isn’t it true that sanctuary cities are U.S. cities which have national government approval to break the laws which our Congress passed for the betterment and sensible running of our Country?

          But something is wrong with that interpretation of sanctuary cities.  Truth be told, while our federal government makes laws so that our Country can function logically – they turn around and give certain American cities permission to break those very laws passed by our Congress to run the Country smoothly – or, rather, logically. 

          So, what is right – can we break the national laws, or do we observe them? 

          For your logical information – it appears that all the large important U.S. cities like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc. – I believe there are close to 100 sanctuary cities – they are all full of illegals who are breaking our laws, legally. 

          Is this a stupid joke?

          Why does our federal government condone and approve of the existence of sanctuary cities which apparently exist to break our national laws?!  What kind of stupidity comes from our Country who wants to have it both ways?!

And now for random thought #2:  Donald Trump explains Obamacare.  Let me get this straight.  We are being gifted with a healthcare plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we do not, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 60,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he does not understand it, and it is passed by a Congress that did not even read it, but exempted themselves from it, and it is signed by a dumbo President who smokes – with funding administered by a Treasury Chief who did not pay his taxes – for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take affect by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare – all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a Country that is broke.   What in the world could possibly go wrong?

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay Commentary 2012-07-28

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

          This is the first Commentary in my book. 

It all started about 40 years ago in our pristine, beautiful Santa Cruz, population 15,000.  While many rejoiced when the University of California chose Santa Cruz for their new campus, I felt uneasy sensing that this quiet little piece of Heaven would never again be the same.  

The small colleges planned did become a reality, but the young minds were not allowed to flourish, at least not in the Political Sciences Department.  Conservative students taking part in KSCO programming confirm that fact.  They felt stifled, intimidated, and ostracized.   Some professors in the Political Sciences called themselves the New Left, and made sure their students understood the Marxist philosophy. 

The leftist newcomers who embraced Santa Cruz as their own, set out to make sweeping changes in our formerly conservative city.  Our previous leaders did not allow any pollution-producing industries.  They were sensitive to the environment long before the lefties thought they had invented that concept.   

Among the new changes, Santa Cruz was declared a Nuclear Free Zone), war was rejected because it was hateful (duh) – and now peace is patriotic. 

Our Navy ships are denied permission to come to Monterey Bay, new businesses are discouraged, and our leaders actually declined Federal funds to widen Highway 17. 

Santa Cruz has become a place, not allowed to grow, but is growing anyhow – a place run by liberal extremists who spend money foolishly.

Since 9/11, the world has forever changed.  Global terrorism will have to be dealt with, perhaps forever.  Now our country is buckling under the years of State, Local and Federal excesses, not the least of which are enormous salaries, pensions, and hidden perks which our leaders quietly give themselves.  

Plus, open borders, validation of illegals, and rewarding illegals with amnesty, driving licenses and the right to vote. 

Our leaders are making a farce of our Constitution, all for the Almighty Vote.  Corruption is acceptable.   And yes, Santa Cruz is a sanctuary city. 

And finally, again the prophetic parting words of my Cabrillo College History Professor in 1967 continue to haunt me.  His chilling prediction was that the United States will eventually become a third-world country.  What can we do to stop the madness?  

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay Commentary 2012-07-21

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

          My son Michael forwarded the following letter to me.  It was sent to him locally by a Mr. Fee Dugan. 

It is with great pleasure that I share it with my listeners because this is about Nancy Pelosi, and I have had an ongoing dislike for Nancy Pelosi since she insisted that the government give her a larger plane to take her weekly from California to Washington D.C. and back at the government’s expense because her small plane that was given to her had to stop once each time to refuel while crossing the Country and that extra time annoyed her.  

Here is the letter.  It was written by Dennis Guthrie, an attorney, and it was looked over by Snopes.com, and it is authentic.   

“Dear Ms. Pelosi,

          I write to you out of utter disdain.  You are as despicable and un-American as the traitor Jane Fonda. 

          You obviously have not read the Constitution recently, if ever, or the federal papers, or even the books on John Adams.  You ought to take the time while riding around in your government-provided luxury executive jet to do just that.

          You represent socialistic and even Marxist principles that our Founding Fathers tried to avoid when setting out the capitalist republican form of government represented by our Constitution.

          I find it interesting that you and your husband are multi-millionaires with much of your fortune being made as a result of your public service.  You have controlled legislation that has enhanced your husband’s investments both on and offshore. 

          At the same time, you redistributed the wealth of others.  Our system of a free market economy is being destroyed by the likes of you, Harry Reid, and now our President.

          You ride around in a Gulfstream airplane at the taxpayers’ expense while criticizing the presidents of companies who produce something for the economy.  You add nothing to the economy of the U.S.  You only subtract therefrom. 

          I await your defeat in the next election with glee. 

          Do not ever use the term un-American again for protestors who love this Country and are exercising their rights upon which this Country was founded. 

          By the way, while I served in the army, I was spit on by the same type of lunatics who support you and who you probably supported in the 1960s and 1970s.

          You are an embarrassment to all of us who served so that you would have the protected right of free speech to call us un-American.

          But at the same time I have the right to write you to notify you that I consider you to be un-American as do the majority of the people of this formerly great Country.   You are a true disgrace to most of the people who serve this Country by offering themselves for public service in the United States Congress.

          I feel certain your aides will not share this letter with you, but I intend to share it with many others.”   

          And so, dear listeners, I Kay delight to be sharing this with you.

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
