Kay Commentary 2012-03-23

The following KSCO commentary is an encore presentation.  Here is Kay Zwerling:  

          Last week I received an urgent letter for funds to support Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona.  It appears that the powers that be do not like the fact that Arpaio is being too successful in his job. 

          Arpaio is being punished for being “tough on crime”.

          He continues to fight to stop illegal immigration, and he forces prisoners to wear pink jump suits, and he cracks down on the criminal wave coming across our southern border with Mexico. 

          According to the Wall Street Journal, since February 2007, Sheriff Arpaio has arrested about 30,000 illegal immigrants, and the administration is now attempting to curb the powers of this true American.   Now, Obama wants to discredit Arpaio, silence him, and remove him from his job.   

          Why, you might wonder, would our leader who promised change, honesty, and transparency want to discard the Sheriff who is doing such a good job for our Country? 

          Well, here is the simple answer – Liberals led by the ACLU have filed 2,700 lawsuits against Sheriff Joe – accusing him of illegally profiling Latinos. 

          But, they are indeed illegal and they are Latinos from Mexico, and that is not profiling. 

          Also, President Obama has been doing a dismal job as President and he knows that if he has any chance of remaining in office for more than one term – clearly he must do everything in his power to convince the Country to give amnesty to the illegal immigrants who are here.   If that happens, of course, those new Americans will keep him in office for two terms.  

          Along with amnesty, the following will happen:  The illegals will expect Welfare benefits, free healthcare, free hospitalization for childbirths, and free schooling in Spanish.  And, who will pay for those perks?   You and me! 

          Most Americans do not get these taxpayer-funded handouts. 

          Why should those who come here illegally get them?

          The Left likes to think there are 11 million illegals here. 

That was the estimate eight years ago.  The amount could now be closer to 29 million. 

          To make this wonderful tough honest American, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the fall guy for Obama’s agenda, I say it stinks!  

          Sheriff Joe should remain where he is, and remind Congress that they are not serving time in a hotel, and continue to expose illegals.  

          And, We the People should support Arizona – and remain alert, and not allow amnesty for illegals, and the U.S. government should close the borders!   

(Bill Graff says):  “Kay reports:   Not much in Joe Arpaio’s situation has changed almost two years later.”

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

          This is chuckle time.  Because most of us are stressed out with worry about the direction of our beloved Country, let’s take out a few moments to laugh.   My son Lou shared this one with me, and it is called “Law dilemma” –

A young law student having failed his law exam goes up to his crusty old professor who was renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind.  

Student:   Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?

Professor:   Actually I probably do, otherwise I would not be a professor, would I? 

Student:  OK, so I would like to ask you a question.   If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as it is.   If you cannot give me the correct answer, however, you have to give me an A.   OK?

          The professor agreed, and the student asked him the following question:  “What is legal but not logical – logical but not legal – and neither logical nor legal?”   

          The professor thought about it for some time, and could not answer that question.  

          So, finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark to an A as agreed, and the student goes away very pleased.  

          The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still cannot get the answer, so finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really really tough question to answer, “What is legal but not logical – logical but not legal – and neither logical nor legal?” 

          To the professor’s surprise and embarrassment, all the students immediately raised their hands. 

“Alright,” said the professor, and asked his favorite student to answer. 

          “It is quite easy, sir,” says the student, “You see, you are 75-years-old, married to a 30-year-old woman, which is legal but not logical.   Your wife has a 22-year-old lover, which is logical but not legal.   And, your wife’s lover failed his exam, but you have just given him an A, which is neither legal nor logical.”

Kay Commentary 2011-03-10

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

Dear KSCO Listeners,

          Because of the KGO disruptive episode a while ago, our listenership has grown enormously, for which we are delighted and grateful. 

          Most of the new listeners do so via the internet, so MZ has happily obtained a very substantial amount of bandwidth to accommodate them, and because of the newcomers I shall now occasionally broadcast more of the Commentaries from my book, like now –

          This was broadcast in September 2008, with additions now, and it is just as relevant today –

The sad current fact is that there no longer is a true media in our Country.  The news that We the People are getting is no longer honest and balanced.  It is a planned liberal machine committed to making Barack Obama President, again.  And, it furthers the motto of leftist extremists, which is “The end always justifies the means.”

In 2008, the McCain campaign was barely covered, and then mostly to ridicule Sarah Palin.  

The public unfairly was not getting the real truth.  The deck was stacked.  It is the same now. 

Obama never held an executive job in his life.  While in Congress, he voted Present, most of the time. 

As President, who must make clear, fast decisions, Obama has been a dismal failure. 

He cannot make fast decisions – in fact, he is almost incapable of making any decisions.

He puts most of them off, hopefully until his next four years.

Now, please listen to this urgent request from Tom Winter, President and Editor in Chief of Human Events, a credible conservative Washington, D.C., weekly:   

Dear Conservative Friends,
They say the truth hurts – in Obama’s case, it is devastating.
Not surprisingly, the BIG media has kept the American public blind to the truth about Obama including:
The fact that a corrupt Chicago machine politician “made a U.S. Senator out of Barack Obama”.
Also, how Obama won his first election by having his lawyers knock all his opponents off the ballot on technicalities – that is a great tool for shady lawyers.   
Then, the Tony Rezko connection “I have never done any favors for him”, says Obama, about convicted developer Tony Rezko.  Oh, but yes he has.  
Then, Obama’s connection to ACORN, the ultra liberal tough organization, which started many years ago with good intentions and which supposedly bullied banks recently to make subprime loans to unqualified people.  
Tom Winter wants to expose the many skeletons in Obama’s closet by sending specifically to young people, especially those on college campuses, the editorial supplement called “The Truth About Obama, what every citizen needs to know.”   

Finally, these are very critical times in our Country!   We must not allow these BIG MEDIA LYING SCOUNDRELS and liberal college professors to succeed in keeping this incompetent candidate in the White House for another four years.   If that happens, we will lose our Country to socialism.

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

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

How can I not share this gem from an unknown author who must have spent considerable time to research all the following?

To President Barack Hussein Obama and all 535 voting members of this Legislature – and to keep it fair, let’s go back a number of decades of U.S. government leaders. 

It is apparent that many of you must be incompetent. 
1.   The USPS (that is the Post Office) was established in 1775.  You have had 234 years to get it right, and it is broke.
2.   Social Security was established in 1935.  You have had 74 years to get it right, and it is broke.
3.   Fannie Mae was established in 1938.  You have had 71 years to get it right, and it is broke.
4.   Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.  You have had 44 years to get it right, and both of them are broke.
5.   Freddie Mac was established in 1970.  You have had 39 years to get it right, and it is broke.
6.   The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil.  It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24B per year and we import more oil than ever before, and now gas is approaching $5 per gallon.  You have had 32 years to get it right, and it is an abysmal failure.

You have failed in every "government service" you have initiated with enthusiasm while overspending our tax dollars.

And, now you want Americans to believe you can be trusted with a government-run healthcare system called Obamacare?!   
          We are broke.

In the last several decades, we have provided foreign aid to many countries, some not even our friends. 

America – a Country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medications, and mentally ill without treatment, etc.  

If all of the foregoing information is indeed true, we Americans must vote in more competent leaders with more compassion for our own needy. 

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
