Kay Commentary 2012-05-26

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

I wrote this in June 2008, and it is in my book.

          The disturbing issue then was the North American Union.  I have a sense it has gone underground because many Americans are totally unaware and would be against this Union.

          Let’s read my Commentary of 2008 again, and be prepared to object to this takeover of our Country.  Here goes: 

Recently I attended a Flag Day celebration to honor American veterans from World War 2, Korea, and Viet Nam. 

The ceremony was touching, and it was beautiful to see their pride when each veteran got up and said a few words.  
        The program opened with a young girl singing God Bless America, and she concluded the ceremony with the Star Spangled Banner.   When the words “The land of the free, and the home of the brave” were sung, my eyes filled with uncontrollable tears.  

Because I am bummed out, because there is this gut feeling that We the People are losing our beloved Country as we know it.

Our President Bush and our Congress, without our knowledge and approval are giving away our nation as it was planned by our Forefathers.  We are, and still should be, a sovereign nation beholden to no one, but there are changes ahead.

Effectively, our borders with Canada and Mexico will be erased.  

They call it globalization.   But, we never voted on this change!  We have been betrayed by our leaders!    

We are in the process of becoming an alliance with Mexico and Canada – called the North American Union.  Our nation and our wishes eventually will become subordinate to the Union, and as we speak, the international superhighway is already becoming a reality, where certain other countries will be bidding to buy portions of the highway, and they will institute tolls to make money for themselves.  We the People never approved this!   

How do you feel about other countries owning part of the U.S.?  Why weren’t we consulted?  Now, it is clear why President Bush broke our laws by leaving the borders open deliberately all these years.  It is because he is a globalist who wants to enlarge NAFTA, which has been a disaster for the U.S., but good for the other countries involved.  
        What can we do to stop this blatant give-away?   Undoubtedly, the greed of a few powerful people who stand to benefit from this sneaky alliance is involved.   And, the kicker is, that the despicable, corrupt United Nations intends to be in charge for of the North American Union, and eventually, in charge of the World.  It is insane, and we are allowing it to happen.  How can We the People stop this take-over?
For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay Commentary 2012-05-19

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

          Isn’t it interesting how our leader, Barack Hussein Obama, is holding on so desperately in wanting another four years after the dismal job he has done with this first term.   Ego is a powerful motive in humans.  

          Surely it was not restful and easy to deal with having to prove for the past 3½ years that indeed he was born a true American.   We now know it is a farce, and he does too, and so do his numerous lawyers.   Our laws are being tampered with, and our Constitution has been diminished.

          What is in the heads of the American media who have covered for him constantly and refuse to acknowledge his numerous mistakes and decisions?  

          They know that another four years of his vacillating judgments will change our beautiful Country which our Forefathers created.   It will become a big socialist Country. 

          And now comes this issue of same sex marriage.   I would like to weigh in on it here – but first I respectfully suggest that if you do not believe in the existence of God, please do not continue to listen.  

          It is God who created long long ago that marriage is only between one man and one woman – and no matter how one wants to rationalize it, that fact is not negotiable.  

          It has been between one man and one woman since the beginning of time.  

          Now there are those humans who for their own sexual comfort are helping change this universal law which God created and it has been working very well for centuries.   And, if this new thinking prevails, I believe civilization will pay dearly. 

          If we humans try to change that, and include two men and two women – before long it will be OK for brothers and sisters to marry, and even worse than that.

          God considers any union other than one man and one woman an abomination.  

          Back to Obama – he wants to remain our President so badly that now he agrees that it is OK for same sex marriages.  How pathetic!   He also cannot stand the thought of giving up his private airplane that he uses daily probably even to go to Walgreen’s.  

          Let’s hope that logic and clear thinking will be with us when we go to the polls in November.  Let us vote Obama out of office, and let our beautiful capitalist Country remain intact.  

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay Commentary 2012-05-12

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

          Because our listenership has grown enormously since KGO several months ago disintegrated, and so many of their listeners happily are ours, I shall be reading more Commentaries from my book.

          Here is one I wrote in the Fall of 2009, and I submit these same perks are probably still available.   It is called “This is an insult.”  Read all of this and weep, folks.  This is what our elected officials have done to you and me.  A great thank you to all of us. 

          From an Emergency Room doctor – he says “I live and work in a border state overrun with illegals.   They make more money having kids than we earn working fulltime.   Today I had a 25-year-old with eight kids.  That is right.  Eight.  All illegal anchor babies, and she had the nicest nails, cellphone, handbag, clothing, etc.   She makes about $1500 monthly for each.  Do the math.” 

            I used to say “We are the dumbest nation on earth.”  Now, I must say, and sadly admit, “You are the dumbest people on earth, and that includes me, for we elected the idiots foolishly who have passed the Bills that allow this.”  Sorry, we need a Revolution now!  Vote them all out of office in the next election! 

            Get mad, and pass this on.  

            If an immigrant is over 65, and he or she can apply for SSI and Medicaid and get more than a woman on Social Security, who worked from 1944 til 2004, she is only getting $791 per month because she was born in 1924 and there is a Catch 22.  It is interesting that the federal government provides a single refugee with a monthly allowance of $1,890.   Each can also obtain an additional $580 in social assistance, for a total of $2,470 a month.  This is for an immigrant. 

This compares to a single pensioner, who after contributing to the growth and development of America for 40-50 years, can only receive a monthly maximum of $1,012 in old age pension and Guaranteed Income Supplement.  Maybe our pensioners should apply as refugees!

Consider sending this to all your American friends, so we can all be ticked off and maybe get the refugees to cut back to $1,012 and the pensioners up to $2,470.   Then we can enjoy some of the money that we were forced to submit to the government over the last 40, 50, and 60 years.

Please forward this to every American to expose what our elected politicians have been doing over the past 14 years to the over-taxed American.

Kay Commentary 2012-05-05

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

          This Commentary is in my book.  I wrote it in November 2008, and it is just as relevant now. 

          Perhaps the most destructive, life-changing aspect 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-correct” also known as p.c. 

          It is eruption of social tyranny.  It is also ugly, stupid truth about offending people and guarding the First Amendment. 

          The thin skins of p.c. people make conversation a mine field.  

P.C. is called cultural Marxism, or The New Communism.  

          It is responsible for stifling liberty and Common Sense.  

          It is Leftist bigotry.

          Now for the really destructive aspects of p.c.   It has made intellectual wimps of many elementary and high school students because competition is stifled, and the achievement of excellence is a no-no, because the egos of many students who cannot measure up are damaged. 

          Worse than that – history is no longer factual.   It is tampered with and changed so that nobody’s feelings are hurt. 

          Now, with regard to the damage to our military:  Many Americans feel it is immoral for our government to listen in on phone calls originating from outside our Country, where we could intercept any possible danger to our military by our enemies.

          It is more important to that p.c. crowd of people to be sure that their First Amendment rights take precedence over our soldiers’ safety in war.  Another related topic is so-called torture.  I believe that all war is torture.  Waterboarding is called torture, though no one ever died or was permanently damaged by a few minutes of waterboarding.  And, very often, life-saving information is obtained.

          Waterboarding releases information that could save the lives of many soldiers.   Asking our military to fight with conditions is suicide.  Waterboarding the enemy has proven to save many soldiers, and to withhold it is crazy.   And yes, the p.c. and their displaced compassion are idiotic.  If a country is at war, it must fight to win and not fight with one hand tied behind.

          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 is another form of callous political-correctness. 

For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling.
