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

          Kudos to Doris Sanden for providing some much-needed chuckle time.  These may have been around for a while, but they are still delightful. 

          A paraprosdukian (or maybe it is paraprosdokian, from the Greek meaning beyond expectation) is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to refrain or reinterpret the first part. 

          Here are a few good ones: 
*  Do not argue with an idiot.  He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
*  The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it is still on my list. 
*  Light travels faster than sound.  That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 
*  If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong. 
*  We never really grow up.  We only learn how to act in public. 
*  War does not determine who is right – only who is left.
*  Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
*  Evening news is where they begin with “Good evening” and then proceed to tell you why it is not. 
*  To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism.  To steal from many is research.
*  I did not say it was your fault.  I said I was blaming you. 
*  Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut and still think that they are sexy. 
*  Behind every successful man is his woman.   Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman. 
*  A clear conscious is the sign of a fuzzy memory.
*  Money cannot bring happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
*  I used to be indecisive.  Now I am not sure. 
*  You are never too old to learn something stupid. 
*  Nostalgia is not what it used to be. 
*  Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
*  Going to church does not make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car. 
*  A diplomat is someone who tells you to go to Hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip. 
And finally –
*  Hospitality is making your guests feel at home even when you wish they were.

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

          I wrote this on February 29, 2004, and it is in Part 2 of my book in section “United States of America”. 

          Well, isn’t there always something to fill us with angst.  This time it is the gays confronting the traditionalists, and the issue is becoming more hairy and the gays are behaving like anarchists. 

          With the help of certain lawbreaking Mayors and Judges, and other jurisdictions who are getting into the act, many gays are celebrating their so-called marriages.

          Almost everyone agrees that same sex partners will and should have some legal rights as a married couple, that is a man and a woman. 

          Now, gays, unhappy with the wording “legal partnership” want their union to be called a marriage.

          Since forever, marriage has been between a man and a woman and nothing more.  When children come into a marriage, they have one mother and one father and in no way ever can two fathers or two mothers be a marriage.  So, it looks like there is a stalemate. 

          There is, however, a reasonable solution.   Remember Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo said “What’s in a name?   A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” 

          To satisfy everyone, I propose that unions between gays could be called a garriage with a “g”.  That would sound the closest to the world marriage without trivializing the institution of marriage.  Just change one letter, an “m” to a “g” and if gays say the word fast enough, it sounds like marriage – even though it is not.

          Gays could get garried, hopefully have stable garriages, and celebrate long and happy years of gatrimony together.   Now, isn’t that a real good King Solomon type solution?

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

          I wrote this commentary in July 2007.  Now, 3½ years later, it is even more relevant.  It is in my book, in Part 3, The World. 

          Finally, we are experiencing an economic recovery, a jobless one.  Millions of U.S. jobs no longer exist, and the people are using the fact as a campaign issue to blame President Bush, now Obama, and they demand that he create new jobs.  

          So, let’s go back to about halfway through the first Clinton term.   Clinton convinced by corporate advisors and lobbyists, urged Congress to create the North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA.

          That plan was to make trade a level playing field for all nations, even the poor ones.   NAFTA did become law, but over the vigorous protests of many Americans and labor unions who saw that our Country would not benefit from these agreements.  

          I felt that way, too. 

          One year later GAT (the global form of NAFTA) also became law.  That low swooshing sound at first was thousands of U.S. companies sending pink slips to millions of longtime employees after which those companies set up operations in other countries where labor was much cheaper. 

          It took time before the full impact of NAFTA and GAT was felt.   Foreign trading partners and American companies in foreign countries have benefited at the expense of the U.S. economy. 

          To add to the NAFTA and GAT fiascos, shortly after our government voted China “Most Favored Nation” status, certain well-placed politicians stood to gain big-time by the China move. 

          The results of those two trade treaties are now obvious.  A large part of the U.S. manufacturing industry died.  Untold amounts of U.S. jobs are gone – forever.

          Now, China and other countries produce most of our clothing, and most of everything else.   Many high tech companies have left our shores for greener and cheaper pastures, as did other industries.  

          Furthermore, our trade agreements are lopsided.  We buy much more from China and elsewhere than they choose to buy from us, and I think that is crazy, and that is the way things are right now.   Trade only makes sense if it is balanced.   Otherwise, it is a joke. 

          This brings to mind another short-sighted disaster created by that one-time Democratic President Jimmy Carter, a prime example of the disconnected Left. 

          He gave away the Panama Canal, which we built and completed in 1914.  Guess who controls that now – China does.   And, that liberal move will haunt us for a long time to come.

          In 1992, Bill Clinton won the election with the frequent use of the quote “It’s the economy, stupid.”   And now, in 2004, George Bush will win if he remembers to remind the electorate again and again what really happened to the evaporation of U.S. jobs – “It’s NAFTA and GAT, stupid.”

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

          No one can disagree that ours is the most generous nation in the world when it comes to helping other countries – especially if they are the recipients of very bad luck – like Haiti, for example, when one year ago an enormous earthquake devastated the entire country. 

          Throughout this year, we have been reminded via TV that in Haiti millions became homeless, streets are filled with mud, safe drinking water is still not available, much sickness prevails, and as we speak, now the disaster remains exactly the same as it was one year ago.

          What is wrong?  Compassionate Americans, as usual, early on have given millions to help the Haitians – yet they are still homeless and nothing has been rebuilt. 

          Clearly the answer must be – the money sent to the leaders went into the pockets of corrupt people and not to the suffering victims. 

This despicable scenario happens every time.  We are too trusting, and we never learn.   

I submit – we Americans must never again send money to the leaders of an injured or destroyed country. 

Instead, we should use those millions meant to help the poor with American builders to go to Haiti and rebuild everything themselves.

This way, the Haitian people can have homes built for them, water made safe for them, streets, schools, and hospitals built for them, in a timely manner.

Also, our government sent many trucks to help clear the enormous debris.   According to U.S. media, they have never been used in this entire year.  They remain in ports because the Haitian government demands import taxes like 40% to allow the trucks into the country.   How can the Haitians be helped when their own leaders create such insane restrictions?  

Let’s stop being naïve and stupid when dealing with various disasters in other countries, and let’s stop trusting corrupt leaders.   There is a simple solution.  Let’s never again send money.  Instead, send workers and materials.

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

The first time I heard Alex Jones on our station, my first reaction was to be frightened, and turn him off, and I instinctively pushed his thoughts away.   

The next day he was on the air and I felt like it was imperative that I listen to him – because he was talking about possible dangers to the Country I love.  

That was almost two years ago.  Of course, I continue to listen to him – as do many KSCO listeners – old and new who are grateful that we can, especially since MZ my son, and CEO and owner, chose to keep him on regularly.  

Alex Jones is the world’s most popular internet, audio, and video personality, and can be heard and can be heard on the Central Coast of California exclusively on KOMY AM 1340 live weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to noon, and on KSCO week nights on delayed broadcast from 7:00 p.m. to10:00 p.m.

There are Americans who believe that Alex Jones is a conspiracy nut, but that is not so.  He is really a patriot who is committed to telling us what is really happening in our government and nation that affects all of us. 

During one recent program, he confided that his wife is scared and worried all the time, and he added “I’m scared too, but I must continue to share the dangers that exist despite the desire of those who wish to silence me.” 

During a trip to San Antonio, Texas, last year, where Michael and I attended a conference with Dr. Wallach and the Youngevity staff, we went to Austin, Texas, to visit Alex Jones in his very impressive and large studio where he produces CD’s and DVD’s for national distribution to make the Country aware of his urgent information.

Alex knows it is not about right and left or liberals vs. conservatives, it is all about money, and ultimate control of all of us by corporate and world governments.  

Other networks are discovering Alex Jones and his courageous messages, and his exposure is growing daily.  

Kudos to you Alex for putting yourself out there for all of us to contemplate and absorb.

The following is an encore presentation of an earlier KSCO commentary, which also appears in Kay’s new book.  Here is Kay Zwerling:

          As a longtime resident of this planet, and a lucky native born of this incredible Country, I need to speak out about why our United States, once the hope and promise of the world, is rapidly becoming weaker and unable to live up to its past expectations.   It is our own goodness, generosity, and trusting nature that is destroying us.

          The topic is:  Assimilation vs. diversity.

          Let’s roll back the clock to around 1913 when my own parents and European extended family were part of the greatest influx of immigrants to the United States.  

          In the late 1920s as a child, I saw how proud and grateful my family was to be here in America where they saw the hope and opportunity nonexistent in their own native Country.  The one abiding desire of all immigrants at that time was to quickly learn to speak, read, and write in English – in short, to become truly American.

          It is called assimilation.   That desire to be American in no way diminished the love that newcomers had for their own culture, history, and native language.  They knew it was their responsibility to keep their own heritage alive, and they never expected their newly adopted Country to do that for them. 

          Let’s fast forward now to the early 1960s or thereabouts when immigration surged again, from Mexico, Korea, Japan, China, Viet Nam, and many other countries.  It was then that the notion of diversity became very popular, and it was celebrated ad nauseum by the politically correct Left.

          Always motivated by feelings, never reality, the Left felt that it was wonderful to have this mixture of cultures in the United States, and in many ways it is true, it was; however, the Left, in its enthusiasm, felt that as a Country We the People were responsible for helping these newcomers keep their respective languages and cultures alive. 

          Big big mistake.  So what happened?   At that time, most new citizens came from Mexico and spoke only Spanish.   Our public education system, led by Leftist educators, created the program of “English as a Second Language” whereby Mexican children received most of their education in Spanish so their parents and they did not have to learn English, so they remained primarily Mexicans, but lived in the United States.    That’s called diversity?   I call it disaster. 

          Now, let’s fast forward to now, 2002.   As a result of 40 years of diversity, and the rejection of assimilation, many immigrants do not understand English, but they do have the right to vote, so our voting ballots are now in many languages.   This is stupid and wrong.  And, it is weakening and destroying the identity of our Country.  It is time to demand that to vote one must read, write, and understand English, and all ballots must be in English only because English is our national language.  

          What we have now is mass chaos and ghettoes of different cultures.  I say, tell political correctness and diversity to take a hike, because diversity divides and assimilation brings unity.  What we have now is a nation of babble.  Please, let’s take back our Country now.

The following is a KSCO commentary.  Here is Kay Zwerling:
          This is called “Bernie Madoff and Social Security”.   It was sent to me by Carol Terry, and kudos to you, Carol.  It is so simple, a caveman could understand it.  
          Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison?   To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him.  The trouble was, he did not invest their money.  As time rolled on, he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors.  Finally, there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going.   The next thing you know, Madoff is one of the most hated men in America, and he is off to jail.  Some of you know this, but not enough of you.  
          Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security.    There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes except that one was operated by the private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges, and status in spite of their actions.   Do you need a side-by-side comparison here?   Well, here is a nifty little chart: 
          Bernie Madoff takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.
          Social Security takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a Trust Fund and made available later.
          Instead of investing the money, Madoff spends it on new homes in the Hamptons, and yachts. 
Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund, the politicians use it for general spending and vote buying.  
When the time comes to pay the investors back, Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to payback the older investors. 
When benefits for older investors become due, the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the geezers.
When Madoff scheme is discovered, all Hell breaks loose.   New investors will not give him anymore money. 
When Social Security runs out of money, they simply force the taxpayers to send them some more.  
Bernie Madoff is in jail.
Politicians remain in Washington.
The taxpayer – “That is someone who works for the federal government, but does not have to take the Civil Service examination” – that was from Ronald Reagan). 
Here is another quote, “If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand.” – that was from Milton Friedman.
Isn’t this an excellent analogy?

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

I wish I had written the following, but I did not, and much of it is really worth sharing.   It was written by an editor of a newspaper in Michigan.  His name is Ken Huber.  It is called “What has America become?  Has America become the land of the special interests, and home of the double standard?”

Originally printed in the Iosco County News Herald on June 9, 2010


Has America become the land of the double standard?

Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don't want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

- Ken Huber
