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

In the early 1930s when Hitler became leader of Germany, his first Law was to take the guns away from the people, so the Jews went quietly to the ovens, six million of them, including my maternal uncle and his family.  I was a child at that time. 

I am a vigorous opponent of gun control because it is naïve and stupid to believe that taking guns away from citizens will eliminate or lessen crimes – that is nuts!

Listen to the following news from Australia, which underscores the folly of taking guns away from the people.  This is dated 3-5-2006, and it is from Ed Chenel, a Police officer in Australia:  

“Hi Yanks, I thought you would like to see the real figures from Down Under.  It has now been 6 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australian taxpayers more than $500 million.  

The first year’s results are in now:  

Australia-wide, homicides are up 8.2%.   Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6%.  Armed robberies are up 44% – yes, 44% in the State of Victoria alone.  Homicides with firearms are now up 300%, and that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns.  

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months since the criminals now are guaranteed that their victims are unarmed.  There have also been dramatic increases in break-ins and assaults of the elderly while the resident is in the home.

Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety was decreased after such monumental efforts, and expenses are expended in successfully ridding Australia of guns.  You will not see this in the American evening news, or hear your Governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information, because they have an idiotic mental block.

The Australian experience speaks for itself.  Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property, and gun control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.  It is a no brainer!  Take note Americans before it is too late.  Remember guns do not kill people – people kill people.  Put another way, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!   
        Please forward this information to everyone you know.  Do not be a member of the silent majority.  Be one of the vocal minority who will not let this happen in the USA.”

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

          I wrote this story about my mother in 1981, two years after her death.  I was studying clinical philosophy at that time, a new discipline, which was deep, personal, and analytical, and while I was still missing my mom, I thought about her a great deal then.

Parents and children have powerful and intimate relationships and perspectives about each other – sometimes positive, sometimes negative, and sometimes neutral.  Here I reveal my mother through my own appreciation of being a child, a parent, and a grandparent.   I address a philosophical problem, that of finding a sense of groundedness in response to the universal human problem of the abyss – that is, the lack of meaning and aloneness – or nothingness.  My mother found her ground in God, and in so many ways, now I do, too.  

This is called “My Mother’s Ground”.

 She came to America from Greece in 1912, or thereabouts, at the age of 16.  The fourth in a family of six children, quite poor, she had been a young schoolteacher in her village.  Her sister and brother-in-law living in New York sent her the money to join them in the land of hope and opportunity.

She met and married my father, had three children, became a widow at 42.  With the three of us married, or gone soon after, she remained alone in the big house, and somehow managed to make the money last.

We worried and wondered at her aloneness every night.  She would say to me “God will take care of me, I’m not afraid.”  God was my mother’s ground.  

An invalid for six years, and in need of continual custodial care, my 82-year-old mother spent her final years in a local convalescent home.  At times, she was amazingly alert – other times, forgetful.  Most often, strangely peaceful and content.  In the early days of her confinement, she would often ask in bewilderment “Por que el Dios mi hizo esto ” (Why did God do this to me?)

Interestingly, after her second stroke, she communicated almost exclusively in Spanish, her native tongue, despite the fact that she had been quite articulate in English.

What made it possible for my mother to face each day with valor, even a smile?  Her philosophy, which she affirmed each day when we were together, and that was every day, “Todo lo que hace Dios es para bien” (Everything that God does is for good).  God was my mother’s ground.

In a way, I envied her very much, but I do not believe she ever allowed herself to see the abyss.  She chose very early in her life to insulate herself from the anxiety of nihilism by a total and daily commitment to the will of God.

What a fascinating and incongruous polarity of personality was my mother:   A most gentle benign imposition of an iron will in areas concerning her children, and a personal complete and total surrender to the will of God.  Indeed, God was my mother’s ground.

Kay Commentary 2013-03-02

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

My friend Michael Olson shared this with me.  It is called “Catching Pigs”, and it is thought provoking. 

There is a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.  

One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed a young man (an exchange student) who kept rubbing his back.  The professor asked the young man what was the matter, and the student told him that he had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist regime.

In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”  

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke.  “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming everyday, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.  You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again, you then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.  Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to that, that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.  The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America.  The government keeps pushing us toward communism and socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops, welfare, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms – just a little at a time.

One should always remember two truths:  

1.  There is no such thing as a free lunch, and   

2.  You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. 

If you see that all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends.  

However, if you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably delete this email, but God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Quote for the day:  “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

Kay Commentary 2012-09-15

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

          To continue about Obamacare, it appears we now have a Supreme Court that has little respect for the U.S. Constitution.  They simply do whatever they want to do, and make up whatever reasons they can to justify their decisions. 

          That sounds really bad, but that is the truth.  Thanks to this Supreme Court, we are stuck with Obamacare – at least for now. 

          I will continue with the rest of the 15 reasons why Obamacare is a disaster:   

#6.  Obamacare is going to impose nightmarish paperwork burdens on doctors, hospitals, and the rest of the healthcare system.  This will significantly increase our healthcare costs as a nation.

#7.  Obamacare will send health insurance premiums soaring.  This is especially true for younger Americans.

#8.  Many small businesses will be crushed by the provisions in Obamacare requiring them to provide expensive health insurance coverage for their employees.

#9.  Obamacare will make the emerging doctor shortage in America much worse – surveys found we could see hundreds of thousands of doctors leave the medical profession because of Obamacare. 

#10.  Obamacare has already forced the cancellation of dozens of doctor-owned hospitals. 

#11.  To fully implement all Obamacare provisions, hoards of new government bureaucrats will be required.  

#12.  You will wait much longer to see a doctor.  In Massachusetts, the wait grew from 33 days to over 55 days.

#13.  With Obamacare, you pay full price for life-saving drugs, but life-ending drugs are free!

#14.   Obamacare will add 16 million new people to Medicaid roles.  Law abiding American taxpayers will be paying their costs.

And finally,

#15.  Congressional budget office estimates Obamacare will add over $1 trillion to government spending over the next decade.  

          I believe that this Obama tool to achieve his ultimate goal means that Obama would like to bankrupt and destroy America.  The best way we can overlook this is to not vote him into office in November.

          Dear Listeners,

          We the People have reason to be very worried about the direction of our beloved U.S.

          If Obama remains in office for another four years, many changes will occur which we will surely not like. 

          Obama totally on his own took out of our Medicare billions of dollars and put them into Obamacare, which will destroy our Country.

          So, when you go to the polls, remember – think very carefully what kind of government you really want, and how much you value your current freedom!

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
