Kay's Commentary 2007-03-02

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: My recent two commentaries dealt with the suggestion that clearly Islamic terrorism must be dealt with for many years to come. Therefore, the Draft should now be resurrected. That news generated strong, sometimes hysterical reaction by some listeners. So, let’s pursue this issue further. Foolish me. I took a risk, and thought I was talking to an audience of Americans who were very aware of the present danger to our freedom and way of life, and could see that it is OK for each of us to care enough to participate in the preservation of our own national safety. It is wrong to expect a voluntary military to do it all indefinitely for the rest of us. If we were asked to serve in some capacity, I thought most would agree. Guess what - I was initially wrong, and then after a while, I was right. One Proverb keeps haunting me as a reaction to the negative emotion re universal military preparedness. "As you sow, so shall you reap." The permissive generations of the past 40 years chose to not discipline their children, to never say no to them, to be overly protective of their emotional well-being, and those parents created a grave disservice to their children, many of whom are totally self-absorbed and selfish. Even more important, they, the children, were cheated out of the sense of joint responsibility and loyalty. Many listeners who at first were angry at the mention of the Draft thought about it and decided that after all, it would help our nation and our own self worth to participate in our national military preparedness. And, our able-bodied young people would then have a personal reason to love and protect their national home. Even the man who called a local program and threatened to move to Poland with his son in the event of a Draft, I honestly believe would finally agree to stay and participate in our own defense. By way of emails and voice mails to me and other local programs, this topic has brought up many other creative ways of serving our country. Very appealingly especially to Conscientious Objectors, working in forestry, road building, housing for the poor, dealing with pollution, etc., were mentioned by the same listeners who at first were angry about the Draft. Also mentioned was the fairness of a lottery along with the Draft. All of these suggestions are wonderful. And best of all, instead of remaining mildly interested critical spectators of whatever our elected officials decide to do about terrorism, we all could be personally invested, and we all would be stronger. The final thought, it is good to be willing to look at and confront unpopular situations which in the final analysis brings us together and surely would help to conquer the evil in our midst because in unity there is strength. I have a good warm feeling because this has been a moment in time when the best came out of those who confronted their own inner fears and selves and responsibility to their fellow Americans prevailed. If we remain on this track instead of being mired in political divisiveness, without a doubt we will eventually conquer the enemy and be safe and home free. For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling.

Kay's Commentary 2007-02-23

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
This is in response to the hornet’s nest I stirred up with the
most recent "Initiate the Draft" commentary. You Gary Ransone and
others with the same parental knee-jerk reaction, went ballistic at the
notion of your child having any military involvement whatsoever. You’re
right that I did not want MZ to have to fight in Viet Nam, but had he
been called to serve, he would have gone. The alternative of abandoning
his Country was unthinkable.
My oldest son Lou served in the U.S. Army for three years, part
of it in occupied Germany. My husband Bernard served three years in the
Navy in World War 2, and was on his way to help finish off Japan in
1945. Then, VJ Day happened.
But this is a different world now. Islamic terrorism is real
and barbaric, and will not stop, and has permeated every part of the
globe, so we must have a strong military which will inhibit and
discourage the enemy much more than if we remain weak and vulnerable.
The reaction of those of you who are appalled at the suggestion
that we must be militarily strong, always say there are other ways to
deal with our enemies other than war, but like the far left now in power
they have yet to propose a peaceful solution, or any solution, and
meanwhile the enemy becomes stronger.
It’s tragic and idiotic that the four-month-old liberal-led
Congress is now busy micro-managing the Iraqi war with their foolish
destructive non-binding resolutions which only serve to tell the enemy
that we are buckling and about to give up.
So, to Pelosi and Murtha and the others involved in those
political shenanigans, I say, you have probably blown it for 2008,
proving you’re incapable of true and honest leadership.
To all caring Americans, I say, get real. We are in the midst
of fighting for our very existence.
If we do not confront the enemy as a nation with a formidable
military, we will lose our freedom and everything that is dear to us.
Bullies don’t fool with those who are strong and prepared.
Two years of military training and its attending discipline will
not hurt your sons and daughters, or my grandchildren and great
grandchildren. It will make them stronger and better involved
citizens. Only by being together and militarily prepared will we ever
hope to overcome this evil very organized enemy.

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

It’s the big elephant in the room this time. It keeps needling us constantly since 9/11 and especially after our war in Afghanistan. We realized then that the Islamic terrorists had already infiltrated the entire world, many living among us here in the U.S.
It’s four years since we entered Iraq, and we can see now that our military effort was too little too late.
What a mess we have created. We were too weak. We were never strong enough, and the Iraqis finally didn’t care enough to want to be a democracy. We didn’t have the wherewithal to stop their infighting.
The one thing that would have made all the difference in Iraq, and may have prevented the Civil War there, is so noticeable by its absence, and it’s called the Draft. D-R-A-F-T.
The courageous young Americans who signed up to fight in Iraq did not expect to be called upon to go back again and again and again. That was not the expected deal. That was not fair. But our leaders opted to do that rather than to establish what was fair, and that was the Draft. And, if it’s so, why after 60 years do we still have occupation troops in peaceful Germany and peaceful Japan?
Where is the government outrage when daily, military recruiters are physically thrown out of publicly financed universities around our country?
All Americans benefit from living in our glorious nation, so all able-bodied Americans should be serving in the military. That terrible word that no elected official from the President down has the cajonies to mention has been missing for the past four years. What are we waiting for?
Our enemies are laughing at our self-imposed impotence.
Poisoned and crippled by political correctness like all of the weak and useless Europe, our leaders are afraid that they will be committing political suicide by promoting the Draft. I think the opposite would be true. They would finally be considered honest, courageous, and serious instead of self-serving.
Like it or not, 9/11 was the dawn of a different world. Realistically, we may be fighting world terrorism for 20 years or even more. To defend ourselves and our allies, we must all be totally prepared and strong, like my generation was in conquering evil in World War II. We were all involved. We all cared. We all had a vested interest. We all had meat rationing and other restrictions. Women took over the factories when our men were fighting the enemy. Because we were together, we won.
Every able-bodied man and woman should serve willingly in the military for two years at age 18, then be in the Reserves until age 50. That is the law in Israel which always has a strong prepared Army.
If our entire society was invested in our safety and security, many of the polarized situations politically would be neutralized.
Again, for the past four years, most Americans have been only spectators and critics of the war, but personally involved? Unthinkable. To them I say “Wake up. If you want freedom, you must be willing to fight for it.”
Every American must be involved. Every American must care. Our country cannot fight cheap and win.
The world observes and sneers at our stupidity and at our military weakness.
There are those cowards who will scurry away to Canada or elsewhere, but they will be in the minority. To reiterate, if we initiate the Draft, never again will it be too little and too late.

The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: Some of you may be wondering what Judge Roy Moore of Alabama has been doing since he was removed from the Bench for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments from his Courtroom wall. Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for the crime displaying the Ten Commandments in his Courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his Judgeship, and now the ACLU is trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama. Is this evil or what? If you don’t believe in God, I suggest you pass on listening to Judge Moore’s following poem: America the beautiful, or so you used to be, land of the pilgrims pride; I’m glad they’ll never see. Babies piled in dumpsters, abortion on demand, oh sweet land of liberty, your house is on the sand. Our children wander aimlessly, poisoned by cocaine, choosing to indulge their lusts when God has said Abstain. From sea to shining sea, our nation turns away from the teaching of God’s love, and the need to always pray. We’ve kept God in our temples, how callus we have grown, when Earth is but His footstool, and Heaven is his throne. We’ve voted in a government that’s rotting at the core, appointing godless Judges who throw reason out the door. Too soft to place a killer in a well-deserved tomb, but brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb. You think that God’s not angry, that our land’s a moral slum, How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes? How are we to face our God from whom we cannot hide? What then is left for us to do but stem this evil tide? If we who are His children will humbly turn and pray, seek His holy face and mend our evil way, Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins, He’ll heal our sickly land and those who live within. But America the beautiful, if you don’t then you will see a sad but holy God withdraw His hand from thee. And underneath is signed: Judge Roy Moore. And I say This says it all. What is happening to our world? How is it possible that goodness is punished and evil is condoned?

KSCO 1080 AM radio – Tuesday 1-23-2007, 6:00 p.m.

The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
Some months ago, I spoke about our civilization being on its way out. Other thought provokers corroborate in a more erudite and academic way. The following is called “How Long Do We Have?”
About the time our original 13 states accepted their new Constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor of the University of Edinborough, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2000 years earlier: “A democracy is always temporary in nature. It simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship. I called it corruption, robbing from within.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilization from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During that 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:
>From bondage to spiritual faith,
>From spiritual faith to great courage,
>From courage to liberty,
>From liberty to abundance,
>From abundance to complacency,
>From complacency to apathy,
>From apathy to dependence,
>From dependence back into bondage.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:
Population of Counties won by Gore: 127 million
Bush: 143 million
States won by Gore: 19
Bush: 29
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in Counties won by Gore: 13.2
Bush: 2.1
Professor Olson adds, in aggregate the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great Country. Gore’s territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare.”
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the complacency and apathy phase of Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy, with some 40% of the nation’s population already having reached the government dependency phase. If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to 20 million invaders called illegals, and they vote, then say good-bye to the USA in fewer than five years.
It will always be a moral responsibility to take care of our infirmed and the bona fide needy and elderly in our midst, and it will always be a privilege to help those in need. It is the able-bodied who should not avail themselves of federal funds simply because it is free. Those persons should work like the rest of the citizens instead of being cared for by the government. It is a wonderful feeling to have your own dignity and self-respect.

The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
This reality check should have been heard around the world last August during the Israeli-Hezbollah war, but I submit it’s never too late to right a horrendous wrong.
The following excellent analysis was written by my favorite commentator Charles Krauthammer. It’s called "Life in an Orwellian universe".
"Israel’s moral scrupulousness is being paid in blood, and yet they’re still branded as evil personified.
What other country when attacked in an unprovoked aggression across a recognized international frontier is then put on a countdown clock by the world, given a limited time window in which to fight back regardless of whether it has restored its own security?
What other country sustains 1,500 indiscriminate rocket attacks into its cities, every one designed to kill, maim, and terrorize civilians, and then is vilified by the world when it tries to destroy the enemy’s infrastructure strongholds with precision guided munitions that sometimes have the unintended but unavoidable consequence of collateral civilian death and suffering?
Hearing the world pass judgment on the Israeli-Hezbollah war as it unfolds is to live in an Orwellian moral universe, with a few significant exceptions: the leadership of the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada, and a very few others. The world governments, the media, U.N. bureaucrats have completely lost their moral bearings.
The word that obviates all thinking and magically inverts victim into aggressor is disproportionate as in the universally decried" disproportionate Israeli response.
I say, whoever heard of anything disproportionate in war?
When the United States was attacked at Pearl Harbor, it didn’t respond with a parallel proportionate attack on a Japanese naval base. It launched a four-year campaign that killed millions of Japanese, reduced Tokyo, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki to a cinder, and turned the Japanese home inlands to rubble and ruin.
Disproportionate? No When one is wantonly attacked by an aggressor, one has every right, legal and moral, to carry the fight until the aggressor is disarmed and so disabled that it cannot threaten one’s security again. That’s what it took with Japan.
The perversity of today’s international outcry lies in the fact that is indeed a disproportionate in this war, a radical moral asymmetry between Hezbollah and Israel.
Hezbollah is deliberately trying to create civilian casualties on both sides while Israel is deliberately trying to minimize civilian casualties also on both sides.
And, Israel was not permitted to finish the job, so Hezbollah is alive and well, and will continue to create havoc in the Middle East, and someday in our own Country. What a shame

KAY Z COMMENTARY 1/11-1/17/07

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: It was the late 1970s. My husband and I were part of a small group visiting China. We were there the day that Richard Nixon signed the treaty with China to have joint economic relations. That day the Chinese people were dancing in the streets. There were no cars then, only millions of bicycles, and everyone wore black outfits, and it being bitter cold, bitter winter, they wore layers and layers of cotton clothing. I had mixed feelings for the people in their celebration. Despite their forthcoming Americanization and prosperity, the Chinese would lose a certain simplicity and peaceful existence and trade that in for capitalism and its companion, stress. Let’s fast-forward to 2007. U.S. manufacturing is almost nonexistent. Most of it is in China, and other countries. International corporations convinced our leaders that trade with China would benefit our country. I could never understand how we benefit when China could inundate us with enormous amounts of stuff, much of it inferior, and would take only a fraction of our products in return. And our leaders allowed and condoned that practice, and now China owns us. The following, floating around the Internet, author unknown, underscores my dismay and disgust with trade imbalances allowed by our government. And this will scare and anger you. ?December 26, 2006. When one day a year either makes or breaks the bank, how fragile indeed has our economy become? Decades ago when we manufactured almost everything here in America, the Christmas holiday was just that ? a holiday. Retail businesses made money, but the money spent on gifts stayed in American pockets. Now, almost everything is made in China, India, Mexico, and many other countries. Once the money is sent out of the country, it will never return. If you do not believe this, check the trade imbalance between the U.S. and China. We buy everything from them, while they buy pitifully little from us. It is a lucrative one-sided deal for China and corporations who engineered this scheme with the American worker coming out the loser. And, if you think that this stuff on a grand scale is not hurting America ? well, listen to this ? America’s finances are in such bad shape that China, our so-called most favored trading partner, is taking the billions of American dollars invested here which it has accumulated in this one-sided trade deal, and now wisely trading them in for Euros and precious metals. The Chinese are well aware of America’s deepening financial morass, and they are not going to get stuck with billions of worthless American dollars if the bottom falls out, and, my friends, unless our do-nothing Congress acts soon to reverse this looming economic disaster, the once mighty dollar will wind up like the post World War I German Mark, worthless. As we speak, the dollar is losing value. What is worse, however, is the mindset of the average American who seems to be more concerned about his neighbor’s dog pooing on his lawn, than about the impending collapse of the dollar. And, I say our government is really worse ? nobody’s home. Once the bottom begins to drop out, Americans will eventually get their heads out of the sand, and demand an end to the so-called free-trade schemes and a return to fiscal responsibility. However, by that time it will be too late, a depression equal or worse than that of the 1930s will be upon us. And, I lived through that one, and it was not good.
