Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling.Perhaps the most destructive life-changing aspects of American society in the past 50 years has been the advent of the liberalism-created philosophy of political correctness.These arrogant rules of behavior have taken hold and have remained in our society for much too long. They are phony and should be discarded. On the Internet, there are various descriptions of the meaning of political correctness, also known as p.c. It’s an eruption of social tyranny.It’s also ugly stupid truth about offending people and guarding the First Amendment.And, also, the thin skins of p.c. make conversation a minefield. And, p.c. is also called cultural Marxism, and the new communism.And, it’s also responsible for stifling liberty and common sense.And, finally it’s called leftist bigotry.It’s astonishing that these restrictive rules of behavior have been embraced and tolerated in our society and especially in all of Europe for over five decades. Now, for the really destructive aspects of p.c. I mentioned this before, it has made intellectual wimps of many elementary and high school students where competition is stifled and the achievement of excellence is a no-no because the egos of many students who can?t measure up are hurt. Poor babies. Worse than that ? history is no longer factual. It’s tampered with and changed so nobody’s feelings are hurt. Now, with regard to the damage to our military.Besides the problems encountered in Vietnam, and with regard to fighting in Iraq, many Americans feel it’s immoral for our government to listen in on telephone calls originating from outside our Country where we could intercept any possible danger to our military by our enemies. It’s more important to that p.c. crowd to be sure that their First Amendment rights take precedence over our soldiers? safety in war. Another related topic is called torture. I believe all war is torture. Waterboarding is called torture though no one ever died or was damaged for more than a few minutes of waterboarding. I wonder at the liberal compassion for the enemy who slices off the heads of American soldiers and anyone else they don?t like. Waterboarding releases information that saves the lives of many soldiers. If it saves only one, I believe it should be used. Asking our military to fight with conditions is suicide. Another d?j? vu from Vietnam. Waterboarding the enemy has proven to save many soldiers, and to withhold it is crazy. And, yes, p.c. and its displaced compassion is idiotic. If a country is at war, it must fight to win, and not fight with one hand behind its back because ?we are better than that? ? that’s a crock. How incongruous is the way of liberal displaced compassion where those of the political left will show emotional concern for the perpetrator of evil or the murderer and yet minimize and ignore the pain or death of the victim.It’s another form of callous political correctness.For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling. copyright 2008

It’s all about the explanation of life. If you want to know about life, here it is on a laminated card, and this is what it says: On the first day, God created the dog. God said, Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes by and I’ll give you a lifespan of twenty years. The dog said, That’s too long to be barking. Give me ten years & I’ll give You the other ten back, and God agreed. On the second day, God created the monkey, and God said, Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I’ll give you a twenty-year lifespan. The monkey said, How boring. Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don’t think so. The dog gave You back ten, so that’s what I’d like to do, too, OK? and God agreed. On the third day, God created the cow. God said, You must go out in the field with the farmer all day long, suffer under the sun, have calves, give milk to support the farmer. I’m going to give you a lifespan of sixty years. The cow said, That’s kind of a tough life You want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I’ll give You back the other forty. And, God agreed. On the fourth day, God created man. God said, Eat, sleep, play, marry, enjoy your life. I’ll give you twenty years. Man said, What? Only twenty years? I’ll tell You what, I’ll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave You back, the ten the monkey gave You back, and the ten the dog gave You back. That makes eighty years, OK? OK, God said. You’ve got a deal. So, that’s why the first twenty years of our lives we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren, and for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everybody that goes by. You?ve just had life explained to you.For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling. copyright 2008

Without a doubt, many Americans are reflecting on the elections, and how it all worked itself out. Our Country is ill, and we are apprehensive and worried ? for numerous reasons. The wonderful thing about this beautiful nation is that we could be passionate about our wishes and feelings, and can freely express our thoughts, and then have a say in choosing our leader.We the People have spoken, and you will be our President for the foreseeable future. I for one acknowledge you are my President, and hope that you will lead us in as democratic a manner as we have been accustomed to since the inception of our Country. I sincerely hope you will surround yourself with thoughtful people to help you understand what must be done to heal our nation. There have been voting irregularities, which have not been dealt with yet, and from your handlers some very troublesome actions which you must not allow to happen again. We must remain a free country, and if you change it, we will rise up against you Point in fact, when Joe the Plumber asked you a perfectly normal respectable question, your staff within 24 hours scrutinized his life hoping to diminish him as an example to not ask the President uncomfortable questions. That is not the American way It was despicable. These tactics will not work in our democracy, so please don?t let it happen again To end on a happy note, to me, with emotional tears, the highlight of the election evening was to see you and your beautiful family come out and rejoice with our nation in finally having a black President. It was a wonderful historic moment. President-elect Barack Obama, please don?t blow it For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling. Copyright 2008
