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

This got by me while on vacation recently, but it is a true logical gem. Kudos to Rae Williams for sharing this. It bears repeating.

Maybe Obama will put to sleep his agenda to change our free Country into socialism. But, it is unlikely.

As the late Adrian Rogers said, "You can’t multiple wealth by dividing it."

An economics professor at a local college, made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but recently he failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked, and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, and that is a great equalizer.

 

The professor then said "OK, why don’t we have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan." All grades will be averaged and everyone would receive the same the same grade, so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset, and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less, and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride, too, so they studied little. The second test average was a D (like in dumb). No one was happy.

When the third test rolled around, the average was an F (like in fail).

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame, and name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away no one will try or want to succeed.

It could not be any simpler than that.

Remember, there is a test coming up within the next five months – the midterm election in 2010.

Don’t forget to vote.

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

This is in honor of Memorial Day.

At a time when our President and other politicians tend to apologize for our Country's prior actions, here is a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our Country.

They are good.

JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 1960s when DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all U.S. military out of France ASAP.

Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"

DeGaule didn’t respond.

You could have heard a pin drop.

When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of "empire building" by George W.Bush.

He answered by saying, "Over the years, the U.S. has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that didn’t return."

You could have heard a pin drop.

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian, and French Navies at a cocktail reception. He found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks, but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it is because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies, and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

You could have heard a pin drop.

And finally this story fits right in with the above –

Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this Country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."

You could have heard a pin drop.

Finally,

This has been floating around for a while, but it is timely and really worth repeating.

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Plager Zeitung of April 28, 2010.

"The danger to America is not Barak Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President."

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The republic can survive a Barak Obama, who is after all merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.

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

 Let’s take a rest from daily stressful occurrences and bad world news, and just reminisce about the happier, simple past.

After a while, one realizes that everything in life is timing.  Case in point – my two lifelong teen girlfriends and I planned to go to a party one Saturday night in 1936.  I decided not to go, and told them to go without me.   I was worrying then a lot about my dad’s failing health.   But, they coaxed me to go, and I did. 

That party shaped my life – I met the young man – fleetingly – who was to become my husband, the father of my three children, and the love of my life for 58 years plus four years of courting.   Sure – we bickered now and then.

If I had stayed home that Saturday night – we never would have met, and what a loss that would have been for us – and Louis, Regina, and MZ never would have happened.  

Clearly, important life moments happen in unplanned times.

Also, during WW2, my husband Barry served in the Navy.  Right after our Country conquered Germany, his group was ordered to San Francisco for several days in 1945 while en route to Japan, and as luck would have it VJ Day happened then, so this Navy contingent was not sent to Japan after all.   See the unplanned good timing.   My husband and his group remained in San Francisco for one year until they were released from the Navy, during which time he discovered how beautiful California was, and decided we should try to live here.

That was a good thought – we didn’t want to remain in New York, and the timing made California an option. 

If you have a moment to think, you will discover that some inconsequential incidences may have shaped your whole life, also.  Think about it.

Another prophetic incident – after our little family of four (MZ had not yet entered this world), on Labor Day 1947, we arrived in Santa Cruz from New York.  That happened to be the day that KSCO came on the air for the first time.   Little did we know then how important it would become in our lives.  

When we arrived in Santa Cruz in September 1947, Barry planned to meet a certain retiring optometrist who wrote to us several times in Brooklyn about how wonderful life was in Santa Cruz, then population 12,500.   He said he went fishing several times a week, and convinced us to come and look at his practice which he wanted to sell.   

The morning after we arrived, Barry visited with the retiring optometrist for several hours, and became convinced that we should stay here in Santa Cruz, and purchase his practice.

In retrospect, it was a wonderful move, and a great place to raise our family.   MZ joined us in 1951, and we were all thrilled with his arrival.

At that time, the early ‘50s, we had intercoms, and I woke the children every morning with KGO, that big San Francisco station that initiated the new format of interactive newstalk in the late ‘50s.

The rest is history.   In his teens, MZ would go to San Francisco often on a bus for an afternoon just to watch the celebrities enter and leave the KGO building.   As a teenager, also, he hosted a weekly high school program on KSCO until he was fired by the boss, Mr. Berlin, for making a fart noise with his mouth on the air.   Decades later, when we purchased KSCO, Mr. Berlin, the original engineer owner, and MZ became very good friends.

Wouldn’t this be a good script for a movie?  

This waxing sentimental must end for the time being.  Thanks for listening, and yes you must agree that unplanned timing often changes the direction of our lives in an unusual or exciting way.

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

          This is about just one hospital, and you would see that it is unbelievable.   Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, is a famous institution for a variety of reasons.   JFK died there, Lee Harvey Oswald died there shortly thereafter, and Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald, died there a few years later.   Parkland has the second busiest maternity wards in the Country, with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year.  That is almost 44 per day every day. 

A recent patient survey indicated that 70% of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.  That is 11,200 babies born every year just in Dallas.

Records show the hospital spent over $70 million delivering 15,938 babies in 2004, but they managed to end up with almost $8 million in surplus.   Medicaid kicked in over $34 million.  Dallas County taxpayers kicked in more than $31 million, and the feds tossed in another $9.5 million.  

The average patient in Parkland maternity wards is 25 years old, married, and giving birth to a second child.  She is also an illegal immigrant.  By law, pregnant women cannot be denied medical care based on their immigration status or ability to pay. 

OK – fine – that does not mean they should receive better care than everyday middle class American citizens.  But, at Parkland Hospital they do.   Parkland Hospital has nine prenatal clinics – NINE!

These illegal women receive free prenatal care including medication, nutrition, birthing classes, and child care classes.  They also get freebies such as car seats, bottles, diapers, and formulas.

Most of these things are available to American citizens as well, but only for low income applicants, and even then the red tape involved is almost insurmountable. 

Because these women are illegal immigrants, they do not have to provide any sort of identification – no proof of income.  An American citizen would have to provide a Social Security number, which would reveal their annual income – an illegal immigrant need only claim to be poor, and the hospital must take them at their word. 

Presently, there are about 140 U.S. patients who receive roughly $4 million for medical care.   As it turned out, they did not qualify for free treatment because they resided outside of Dallas County.  So, the hospital is going to sue them.  Illegals get it all free, but U.S. citizens who live outside the Dallas County get sued.  How stupid is this?  

How much longer will Dallas and Parkland Hospital pander to illegals, and punish legal residents?  When will Congress step in and send illegals back to Mexico?  This kind of preferential treatment to illegals at the expense of Americans is sheer insanity!   It is financial stupidity.   Let’s send them back and close the borders.

If you question these figures and costs, you may call Parkland Hospital for verification. 

And, kudos to you Marilyn of Capitola.

The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
Because their existence in our Country remains incongruous, let’s examine sanctuary cities in the U.S. How long have they been allowed to flourish, and more importantly – why? Surely there were none when the 13 states were born in 1776.
For those of you who don’t know, sanctuary cities are places that welcome and protect known illegals in our Country.
Also, for your information, there are 31 sanctuary cities in our Country. Los Angeles was the first, that was in 1979. San Francisco is one of the very active ones. It protects various illegal incidents that would otherwise not be tolerated by any other cities in California. New York City is another. These 31 American cities have ordinances banning city employees and police from asking about immigration status. Some States forbid sanctuary cities because they know it undermines laws of the State.
Why should there be places in the U.S. which encourage and condone possible illegal behavior, and are protected and coddled for breaking our laws?
Those leaders of sanctuary cities could agree that because we are a free nation people should have the right to change the laws if they can get away with it. That sounds crazy to me, but that is exactly what sanctuary cities do.
Very interesting, though. Right now, and what the Governor of Arizona did a while ago to protect her State which is overrun with illegals and their problems, all sanctuary cities are crying out and accusing Arizona of committing the shameful act of possibly inquiring that people who look Mexican or Spanish should show proof of citizenship. The federal government refuses to keep the border closed so those numerous problems with illegals must be dealt with by the Arizona Governor.
Our bleeding-heart liberals think it is unforgivable to embarrass any Spanish-looking person if he or she is here illegally. Why are we concerned about their tender feelings if they cross the border and broke our laws? If they break into your home, would you still be polite and gentle with their feelings?
If I try to enter Mexico illegally, I would either be shot or incarcerated, or maybe even both.
U.S. federal and state leaders develop should develop some backbone and close and protect our borders now – right now – and eliminate sanctuary cities or our federal and State laws will soon become meaningless. The world must be laughing at us for tolerating sanctuary cities.

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

What’s occurring in Arizona as we speak is a grotesque situation where it appears that right is wrong and wrong is right. That is to say, the illegals are screaming like they belong here, like they were welcomed here, because they were. Because of our leaders’ delinquencies, illegals in our Country for the past 20-25 years were given the wrong message. They figured if the borders from Mexico were open, they were welcome to come here. Many came for a better life, and who can blame them? Now, we want them to go home.

The blame for this probable five-decade disaster, which is now coming to haunt us, can be laid to our past four to five Presidents, namely: President Bush Sr., President Reagan, President Clinton, President Bush Jr., and now currently for the last 1-1/2 years President Obama.

They all left the borders open knowingly. They broke our laws. Why? Possibly for cheap labor, which could have been obtained from the able-bodied Americans allowed to remain on Welfare indefinitely, which is sad, because those who do no work, and are able to, have no self-respect and dignity. The irony is now illegals are getting the few jobs that are available, and the American citizens are not.

Our President has been telling us lies about the amount of illegals living and working here – he says "maybe 11 million", when it is possibly more like 30 million. We will never really know. And, those immigrants who waited, and became citizens legally, are also very angry that illegals are being given extra perks for breaking our laws. Example: Some free college educations. And, the new legal citizens did the right thing, and they’re not rewarded.

Obama made sure everyone is included in the new universal healthcare debacle, which hopefully will be repealed. That amount of illegals has been soft-pedaled, and not mentioned specifically – because the government will probably be paying the bill for them. They cannot be excluded, and they are accustomed to excellent healthcare here in all U.S. hospital Emergency Rooms.

We the People must demand loud and clear that our borders must be kept closed now! Our jails are already overcrowded with unsavory characters, many from Mexican gangs here illegally, and it is all at our expense, and Mexico may be laughing at us and our stupidity.

The future for America looks bleak. Either we could lose our beloved U.S. by overcrowding illegals, which Obama needs to win another four-year term – or by Obama socialism. Please – let’s wake up before it is too late. Let’s demand our laws be enforced.

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

Here is some very interesting information about Sarah Palin, sent by an unknown Alaskan. He says "The last 45 of my 66 years I have spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics, but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here is what I know about Governor Sarah Palin":

#1. Democrats forget when Palin was the darling of the Democrats because as soon as she took the Governor’s office away from the fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republicans’ "Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC), and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jumpsuits.

#2. Now, with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge giant oil companies here, so she constructed a new system of splitting the oil profits called ACES. Exxon, the biggest corporation in the world, protested and Sarah told them "Don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being nearly wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Which other Governor in the Country that has done anything similar?

#3. She also walked into Governor’s office with a list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as Pork. She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the "When Hell Freezes Over" stack. She let locals know that if we needed something built, we would pay for it ourselves. She also sold the previous Governor’s jet because it was extravagant.

I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other Governors.

#4. Also, she managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline, which would be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it, although they tried.

#5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth, they were holding it like an investment. No Governor for 30 years could make them get started, and she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened Court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the Courthouse. Alaska won again.

#6. After the recent national election, she was content to return to Alaska and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. They kept tormenting her with frivolous lawsuits, and they always lost. No one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. They should have known better.

Now, you have just heard the truth about Sarah Palin which sends the media along with the Democratic party into a wild frenzy to discredit her. So, I say "You go girl". I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals. Kudos to the unknown Alaskan for this information. No wonder the pathetic Democrats are terrified. What’s the best thing they could come up with? A leader busy dismantling our free Country and changing it into a socialistic one. Is that the change he promised us?

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

This story was written by an anonymous author, and in addition to other reasons for this repetition, I think it bodes well for those of us who are older to remember this when we go to the polls in November.

Also, if we are to save our Country from the Obama abomination in November, we must change the Congress. It will be our only chance to save this free Country we love so much.

Here is this story:

Wednesday, I was at the doctor, to whom I have been going since we moved down here to Palm Desert, California. He is the one who discovered my cancer. I have to get a very expensive shot every three months. Each time it costs $3,000. That is designed to keep the PSA down, and help to prevent a recurrence of the cancer. It has some uncomfortable side effects, and I was questioning the need to continue with it when the doctor assured me that it was necessary. He then asked how old I was, and when I replied 70, he said that if this new legislation does go through as intended by the powers that be, that I probably would not be able to get it next year anyhow, as that would be money better spent on someone else with greater longevity. I would be referred to someone to counsel me. That is barbaric! I asked him why the AMA had endorsed the plan, and he replied that only about 15% of the nation’s doctors were members of the AMA, and most of them were not really on the front lines of doctorhood, but in some other areas of medicine, like teaching.

This man got part of his training in London, and practiced in Canada for 16 years before coming to the U.S., and he has no use whatsoever for socialized medicine regardless of how you wrap it or what kind of bow you put on it. He said that we have a shortfall of around 400,000 doctors at the present time, and many of today’s doctors are of the Baby Boomer generation who are nearing retirement, and will decide to hang it up rather than be forced to decide who will live and who will die.

This is scary, my friends. The picture of our over 69 age group is not pretty in Obama land.

In fact, "Nobody over 59 can receive heart repairs, stents, or bypass because it is not covered, because it is too expensive and not needed," he said.

Obama wants to have a healthcare system just like Canada and England’s. And, he wants to discard the one we have, which is the best in the world.

If this does not sufficiently raise your fear level, just remember that our esteemed Senators and Congress people have voted themselves, at the cost of the taxpayers, their own healthcare plan that is very low co-pay. They and their families are guaranteed this plan for the remainder of their lives. They are not subject to this new law. They specifically wrote into the Bill a section exempting themselves. I say, if it is so good for us, why did they exempt themselves? Their behavior is despicable.

Please, use the power of the internet, and any other method, to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in about seven months, and we have the ability to stop and possibly reverse this dangerous direction Obama and Congress have begun, and in the interim let’s make their lives miserable!

You know, I am old, and wonder how dare those miserable skunks in charge of our government now play God with We the People while they embrace their own special exclusive healthcare program.
