China unveils 'world's fastest train link'

Yet another grand achievement of Communist China:  China unveils 'world's fastest train link'

Pay special note to the last sentence: "The network uses technology developed in co-operation with foreign firms such as Siemens, Bombardier and Alstom." This is the global economy at work.

Make no mistake, communism is now fully bonded with corporatism. This new creature is a social cancer that has fully metastasized- quietly choking out freedoms throughout the four corners of the world. Really, only two things stand in its way- Religion and the U.S. Constitution.

American Thinker: We're Staying, We're Praying; Get Used to It

"There are three kinds of faith: faith in God, faith in oneself, and faith in life. Think of these as building blocks.
When the United States was founded, the big block on the bottom of the pile was faith in God.

However, something happened through the course of American history: The blocks got restacked, and faith in self, or egocentrism, settled into the first position. Faith in self is very important, but it makes a poor foundation because it is not a perception of perfection. And the ego is shifty, so the other blocks tend to become unstable or fall off. As egocentrism became foundational, the spiritual and moral belief systems of our society turned upside-down. Day became night, dark became light, and the unthinkable became commonplace...

...the First Amendment purified Christianity, opening the way for ordinary people to experience the attainment of the saints of the past: 'Christ is who I am.' That self-identification cannot be coerced. It is, however, subversive to the new power elites, and it kindles persecution. As the new subversives, "God-Firsters" should use social science to protect their children and themselves, demand First Amendment rights, and tell the world, 'We're staying, we're praying; get used to it!'"

China’s Century: The Impending Threat to America

India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border—Hu Shih, 20th Century scholar.

It doesn’t matter if it is a black cat or a white cat... As long as it can catch mice, it is a good cat.”—(December 1978) Deng Xiaoping, Mao Zedong's successor.

A Christmas Story: 1944 - Connelly

The frigid night air cut through the Lieutenant’s army issue coat as he stopped in the knee deep snow to survey the perimeter. A heavy snow continued to fall on this Christmas Eve 1944, but it was not a silent night. The flashes of artillery lit the sky and generated a rumble like distant thunder as the young officer finished his tour of the unit’s outposts. He was an officer in Company B, 87th Chemical Mortar Battalion, the men who fired the big 4.2 mortars which were so critical to the effort of the infantry to advance. They were someplace in Belgium, he really had no clue where, and for the first time in a while the battalion was together again. All four companies had been brought in to help stop the German breakthrough. They didn’t know it, but the 87th was about to be thrown right into the heart of the Battle of the Bulge.

As the Lieutenant finished his rounds he wearily dragged himself into the monastery where the command had taken refuge for the night. The warmth that enveloped him as he entered the large community room was certainly welcomed. He glanced around and saw his comrades sprawled in every available space.

They were bedraggled and exhausted after 201 days of almost continuous combat, and by the looks on their faces you could tell that it was only going to get worse. Despite the thickness of the monastery walls, a new sound intruded, the quick crack of tank gunfire.

Everyone knew what that meant, American tankers were making a last ditch stand against the German armored column in the area. They were outnumbered and outgunned and their Sherman tanks stood no chance against the awesome German Tiger tanks...

Keeping up with science

Sent via email-
New Discovered Element to Be Added to the Periodic Table:

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each re-organization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration.

This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Communist China Conducting Effective Economic War Plan

Communist China Conducting Effective Economic War Plan Insight on the News Newspaper Find Articles at BNET

Tom Adkins writes- "Don't forget to add in China's gargantuan product-counterfeiting market and that pesky prison-labor thing. It's obvious: China is conducting economic warfare. These policies don't happen by accident. China is trying to eliminate our industries and make us totally dependent on Chinese imports. Then one day we'll wake up to higher-priced steel, higher-priced textiles, higher-priced televisions and no industrial base. And we'll be helpless to do anything about it. Sound familiar? Think Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, circa 1979. China's Sun Tzu philosophy is easy to spot."

Friend or Foe

Q:  In war- how can you tell friend from foe?
A:  Observe the direction the guns are pointing.

The Chinese haven't fired a shot in the same direction as the Americans since 1945.

Why aren't the Chinese helping us in Afghanistan?

Answer the question for yourself-

First read a biography of Mao Zedong HERE.
Then read "Beware the TzuCom" HERE.

"The Unconsidered Enemy" ties it all together.

Beware the TzuCom

By J.N. Kish - Kish Collections
The finest cloak is that which disrupts the rational mind to disbelieve its own senses and forget its own past.

When you hear the word Communism, what is your first thought?  For many, it's Russia, it's the Berlin Wall or something else related to the fall of the Soviet Union.  Communist Russia- our hapless and defeated enemy of the cold war. 

This first thought raises the impression in the mind that communism is ancient history, no longer a threat, nothing to be worried about, and- you know,  it wasn't really a big deal in the first place. 

All of these impressions are dead wrong.

When you hear the word Communism- your first thought should be China, your second thought Sun Tzu and your third thought Mao Zedong.  You should be concerned with the ongoing war between freedom and communism.  A war which has raged since the end of the second world war.  It is a quiet war, an unspoken war, a cloaked war.  It is exactly why you pay no attention.  It is a war that is being fought by one side - the communists (China).  It is fought behind the backs of some and right in the face of others.

Note:  There is some debate as to who is calling the shots (China or Russia).  I believe that it is China.  But, please, let's set this argument aside...  It's like arguing over the species of the bear which gnaws on your leg.
The enemy is the Sun Tzu Communist- The communist leader who worships the teachings of Sun Tzu. 
Sun Tzu was a master of the cloak.  He is well known as the author of the Art of War, in which he wrote:
The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory. - Sun Tzu
Look around- communism is quietly winning victory all over the world.  Even in our own United States.  China is swiftly becoming the most powerful nation in the world.  When China succeeds, communism succeeds by proxy.  There is an ongoing war between freedom and communism.  Victory is being decided - right now - exactly as Sun Tzu teaches.

Many have heard the term Chicom or Chi-Com - It is an abbreviation for "Chinese Communist". 

TzuCom or Tzu-Com is an abbreviation that I have coined for the Sun Tzu Communist.

The most dangerous form of the TzuCom is the wealthy global Chicom strategist who directs his resources by the word of Sun Tzu- always striving to spread communism by all means necessary.  Total war- by the book- word for word.  This form of the TzuCom could very well be the most crafty and dangerous creature ever to inhabit the Earth.  A creature that is one with the Art of War- able to carry out every tenent, no matter the human cost, with the precision of instinct.  Mao Zedong was this type of person- and the most notable TzuCom to date.

Tracking the TzuCom- In order to discover an elusive animal, one has to observe its signs.

The Art of War by Sun Tzu AND The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.  Apparently, I am not the first to link these two together- Unbelievably, this title was published by Classic Books America in 2009 and is available through for $9.95.  This book might as well be the TzuCom field manual.  Follow THIS LINK to learn more about the book, the TzuCom and the real communist threat.

How far back do the TzuComs go?  Sun Tzu lived approximately 2500 years ago.  I suspect that TzuComs can be traced all the way back to the early stages of communism. It is becoming clear that the TzuComs have been using Sun Tzu's playbook to spread and strengthen communism for a really long time.

Signs of the TzuCom in Vietnam- Dr. William Duiker- "Certainly many of the key leaders in Hanoi were aware of Sun Tzu and made use of his ideas." Follow THIS LINK to view the full interview at

As my research continues, I expect to find evidence that the TzuComs have influenced events in order to weaken the United States.  There is clearly motive (written in the Art of War) for the TzuCom to draw the United States into distant conflicts.  Limited wars- such as Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Sun Tzu- "Do not try to win by fighting him directly. Instead, attack a place that he must recapture... Don’t give the enemy anything to win. Divert him from coming to where you defend... The nation impoverishes itself shipping to troops that are far away... Military forces consume a nation’s wealth entirely. War leaves households in the former heart of the nation with nothing."

I am beginning to believe that the United States military is in Afghanistan because the TzuComs want the United States military in Afghanistan. After all, this is how they succeeded against the United States in Korea and in Vietnam.

Sun Tzu- "Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate."

Think about it- In nearly all of the superpower conflicts since Patton in 1945 (and possibly before) the TzuComs have been the ones with the Motive, Opportunity, Means, Method and Strategy.

First ask yourself- Why Aren't the Chinese Fighting "The War on Terror"?

Then read these quotes from Sun Tzu- Wikiquote.

Additional research will be added in the coming days.  Contact me if you would like to assist in the investigation.

Why Aren't the Chinese Fighting "The War on Terror"?

By J.N. Kish - Kish Collections
Have you ever wondered about China- about their intentions and their motives?  Have your ever had a "friend" who was always building something for himself, but would never come around when you needed help? If the Chinese are such great allies of the United States- Why aren't they helping us?  Why aren't they fighting "The War on Terror"?
They have so many men.  Why can't some of them help us in Afghanistan or Iraq?

The answers are written in Sun Tzu's, Art of War

Sun Tzu- "You can fight a war for a long time or you can make your nation strong.  You can't do both .... Thus those skilled in war subdue the enemy's army without battle .... They conquer by strategy."

Sun Tzu was a Chinese philosopher and military commander c.544–496. B.C.

Chinese leaders understand and live by Sun Tzu's lessons.  They have done so for thousands of years.  Many of our U.S. leaders are aware of Sun Tzu's teachings but few seem to take them seriously.

Sun Tzu said- "The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected."

While American leaders weaken our nation in Afghanistan- the nation of China remains focused on growing strong. 

Many people in the United States do not realize that The Communist Party controls China.  Many more do not understand how communism works. Some believe that we should trust the communists. I wonder- How many of you still believe communism is evil?

Communists do not believe in freedom.  They believe in strength, control and survival of leadership. They are always thinking- strategy.  They are always seeking new and creative ways to dominate and conquer- to win and survive.

Communism believes in command and control.  America believes in freedom.  Communist China is America's largest threat.  The cold war (supposedly) ended when the Berlin wall fell.  However, communists never stopped fighting.  They simply adapted their strategy to fit the new circumstances.  Sun Tzu preaches adaptation, secrecy and distraction.  The Communists have not given up.  In secret, they have launched a new type of war.

Sun Tzu- "Doing the right things at the start of war is like approaching a woman. Your enemy's men must open the door. After that, you should act like a streaking rabbit. The enemy will be unable to catch you."

Look at everything that China is doing in relation to the United States. They have been fighting a strategic war against us for years - and doing very well indeed. Everything that has made America strong is being stripped away- Manufacturing, Technology, Resources, Land, Wealth and Freedom.  All the while, the American people are led to believe that it is all an accident- that it's all our fault- that China is a great partner in the global economy- that China means well- that China should be trusted, implicitly- that it's OK to rely on China for our clothing, food and cheap labor.  After all- it doesn't really matter when China spies on us and steals our technology.   And when they provide weapons and intelligence to our publicized adversaries (i.e. North Korea and Iran), well, that's just business in the new global economy.  Every country deserves to make a buck.  You know- what we really need is a low-cost supplier of small arms.  Why don't we open up the bids to China- the Iraqi government is doing it.

Add it all up.  Read the Art of War.  It is all right there.  Right in front of us.

China has successfully baited our businesses with the lure of gain.  Our leaders have opened the door with free trade agreements, treaties and loans.  One day China will act - like a streaking rabbit.

This isn't a partnership. This is a strategic war.  Unless American leaders wake up to this reality, over time- this strategy will deliver victory to China.  In a global economy, Chinese Communists will rule the world.

Times Square can easily become Tiananmen Square.

Why is it that China doesn't seem to have a problem with Islamic Terrorism?  Major terrorist attacks in China, 1997-2007

Could it be that Terrorism is a tool of the Communists?

If you follow the Art of War- The idea does make sense.  If the Chinese Communists were to secretly support Islamic Extremism in the Western World, it would be consistant with Sun Tzu's teachings-

"Get assistance from the outside.  Influence events.  Then planning can find opportunities and give you control ... Manage to avoid battle until your organization can count on certain victory ...  You can kill the enemy and frustrate him as well ... Take the enemy's strength away from him by stealing away his money ... You can draw their men out of their cities ...  with small attacks.  The entire army becomes confused and distrusting ... You cannot win unless the enemy enables your victory ... Outmaneuver the enemy before the first battle and then fight to win ... Chaos gives birth to control ...  You must control chaos ...  You must force the enemy to move to your advantage ...  The enemy must follow you ... Ghostly! Ghostly! Arrive without a sound.  You must use all your skill to control the enemy's decisions ... Do not try to win by fighting him directly ...  Force the enemy to prepare his defense in many places.  You want the enemy to defend many places.  Then you can choose where to meet the enemy.  His forces will be weak there.  The enemy may have many men.  You can still control him without a fight ... Your war can take any shape ...  Make war without a standard approach ... If you follow an enemy's shifts and changes, you can always find a way to win ... Using deception, you can upset the enemy and change the situation ... You must be creative in your planning ...  You can keep your potential enemy's army busy by giving it work to do ... Do not trust that the enemy isn't coming. Trust your readiness to meet him."

CNN Money- "A Chinese-owned GM, it could happen"

The CNN Money article linked HERE says-

"As Chinese automakers eye bargains around the world, some think they could make a play for GM once it goes public... Such purchases would give the Chinese access to needed technology, as well as auto plants around the globe to serve various markets."

"The Chinese have a lot of our money and they're looking to invest it," said David Cole, chairman of the Center for Automotive Research.

"Assuming there's no government restrictions on something like that, anything is possible," said Bob Schulz, the top automotive credit analyst at Standard & Poor's.

The Louisiana Purchase 2009 - It's Bribery!

U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana publicly accepted a $300 million bribe yesterday.

Many of the facts are documented in this article- WashPo: Dana Milbank - Sweeteners for the South

Bribe- Something, such as money or a favor, offered or given to a person in a position of trust to influence that person's views or conduct.
Bribery- The offer or acceptance of anything of value in exchange for influence on a government/public official or employee. Bribes can take the form of gifts or payments of money in exchange for favorable treatment, such as awards of government contracts. In most situations, both the person offering the bribe and the person accepting can be charged with bribery.

Last Friday former Louisiana congressman William Jefferson was sentenced to 13 years in prison for bribery.
If William Jefferson deserves prison, so does Mary Landrieu.

Oh- and don't forget about the Senators who bribed Mary Landrieu- According to Louisiana Law (RS 14:119 — Bribery of voters): "Whoever commits the crime of bribery of voters shall be fined not more than two thousand dollars or imprisoned with or without hard labor for not more than two years, or both, for the first offense."

But this event didn't occur in Louisiana.  In this case, we need to look at Federal Bribery Law.  18 USC Chapter 11

18 U.S.C. § 216 : US Code - Section 216: Penalties and injunctions: "Whoever engages in the conduct constituting the offense shall be imprisoned for not more than one year or fined in the amount set forth in this title, or both."

The LP2009 travesty is much more than "business as usual".  The people involved must be held accountable.

Regenerative Acceleration Generator - Hoax, False Claim or Discovery?

The following article contains some interesting quotations from Canadian inventor Thane Heins-
The Fulcrum (University of Ottawa)- Ottawa physicist cracks Newton’s law

“We’re creating a new energy paradigm by basically [finding] a way to exploit a loophole in the laws of physics,”

“It’s obvious to everybody. The only people that it’s not obvious to are the engineers and PhDs, and [it’s because] their education is an impediment to them understanding it,”

But wait- Before anyone gets too excited and decides to invest the family fortune, read this-

"I'm sure you've heard the expression, ‘If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.’ Well, in the investment world, I say, If something sounds too good to be true, it definitely is." [1997 Washington Times 3 June B7]

A Proposed Solution to Fort Hood

The following was posted by Former Marine Infantry NCO "EvilMonk" on  A link to the thread is HERE.  This post is related to the KC article and discussion linked HERE.

I will not pontificate on the myriad motivational aspects of this issue, that has already been done elsewhere, and in great quantities.

What I will say is that our troops are at their most vulnerable when on a base in the states. There are many rules, laws, and guidelines in place while on a base, and they are all derived from experience. Seen a stupid Military rule? It’s there because someone at one time did exactly what is says not to do. In the best of times, a Member of the Armed Services is treated no better than a well-behaved kindergartener, ask any Veteran. Ownership of firearms and their presence on base are no exception.

Allow me to brief you on the current (as of two years ago) situation regarding personal firearms on base.

1. In order to just purchase a firearm, even off the base in the Camp LeJuene area, you needed your Commands’ express written permission. This included your immediate Commander as well as your Battalion Commander’s signature.

2. The weapon must then be entered into your unit’s armory, where it could be accessed at any time by the armorers. If they decide that they like your new Wilson Combat Custom, they could take it out for a spin. There is nothing you could do, and you would likely never know. Several private firearms developed mysterious “wear-and-tear” issues in my unit…

3. Any weapon on base that was not declared and in transit to or from the armory was highly illegal. CCDW (or equivalent) did not make exception to this factor, and served no on-base purpose except to flag your vehicle at the gate for “Random Inspection”.

4. To remove your weapon from the armory, someone had to be there, and this only happened when there was some reason for your unit to have their armorer actually in the armory (scheduled weapon’s maintenance, range qualification in progress, etc.). This meant that if you wanted your weapon for a private day at the range, you had to schedule it for a day that they would be unlikely to want to help you. Just to open the armory doors alone takes paper-work, and they don’t like having to do it just so you could get your firearm for a few hours.

Are you beginning to see why no one was armed on Fort Hood?

While the suggestion of allowing this nation’s military to be armed even when they are not in a hostile environment is certainly one that makes sense, I believe that another step could be taken that perhaps would make even more sense, and be easy to implement as well.

While in the military, you stand something that is called “Duty”. Everyone does Duty. In the Marines, this meant that once a month (more or less) you put on your uniform, the Duty Belt, carry the Duty Log Book, and stay awake for 24 hours while watching everyone else go about the daily business of training, preparing, and gearing up.

The Duty is an extension of the Command. An order from them is (supposed to be) an order from the Gods of Brass that rule all in the Military. They are prime candidates for armed presence and active deterrent.

If situations like this can’t be stopped from the top, perhaps a more localized solution should be investigated. Arm the Duties and give them supplemental training for the defense of their fellow Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen.

They are all in the military, not the Peace Corps, and they should all have the general concept down that they may in fact have to some day take a life to defend whatever it is that they are assigned to protect. It shouldn’t matter what MOS (Military Occupational Specialty or “job”) they have in the Military, they are all “Riflemen First” at least according to Marine Doctrine. This should be a rather easy and logical step towards the increased protection of our Armed Forces while they are in the States, on base, and at their most vulnerable.

Incidentally, it wouldn’t hurt to allow some trust for individual members that have a recognized CCDW to carry their personal firearms. After all, the weapons I have now are in much better shape and a vast improvement in reliability from anything the Government ever issued me! I also hear tell of a time when a Trooper could take his own weapon (within reason) to combat as a back-up, but that may be an unfounded rumor, and is a topic for a different thread…

The Military may never ease up on the Troops and their possession of private firearms, but they should seriously consider allowing the Duty Officers and Enlisted to carry issued firearms to help with the defense of their brethren. Outsourced security, inconsistent procedural policies, and unobserved fences and boundaries are epidemic in the Modern Military. They deserve the right to defend themselves, and they have an absolutely unassailable host of reasons for considering themselves to be targeted for hostile actions.

The Supreme Irony of Fort Hood is that this happened on an Army Base, by an Army Officer, and it was ultimately resolved by a “Townie” SWAT Police Officer whose unit was called in to “help the Soldiers”.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed…

That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

Convenire Volui Spectatus

Update- The following "common sense" suggestion was posted by "Rob P." on  A link to the thread is HERE.

...What would change these types of situation would be to REQUIRE those personnel who are standing watch be armed and trained with small arms and to have a "strategic arms locker" in various places around the command. The purpose of this locker is to provide O's the ability to arm their division personnel in the event of an escalating takeover/raid situation. It also decentralizes the arms/ammo supply dump a bit.

The additional armed personnel would enhance the ability to respond to deadly force incidents because they are right there at the time it happens rather than relying solely upon the ability of the few hire LEO to get to the scene."

Concealed Carry Would Have Saved Lives at Fort Hood

I am stunned and angered by the effectiveness of the terrorist act at Fort Hood.  I have been left to wonder- Why were our trained soldiers defenseless against this handgun attack?

According to the Fort Hood Sentinel- "the Texas Concealed handgun Law does not apply on Fort Hood. Therefore, concealed handguns are prohibited on Fort Hood. During firearms transportation the firearms will be unloaded and secured in the trunk, or out of immediate reach of all occupants." 

In addition, according to Fort Hood policy- "privately owned weapons and ammunition will not be stored or allowed in the barracks at any time"...  "Military personnel who fail to comply... are subject to judicial or non-judicial disciplinary action".

Yet, obviously, military personnel who do comply...  are subject to terrorist action and death.  Which is worse?

Note:  I have copied and archived the referenced FortHoodSentinel article and Ford Hood policy because controversial web links (especially factual ones) have a tendency to disappear.  The referenced article as of 11/7/09 can be downloaded HERE and the referenced policy can be downloaded HERE.

As a direct result of these policies, the capable defenders stationed at Fort Hood were forced-defenseless against the enemy unleashed within the gates.  I submit that the patrons of any coffee shop in Texas (where concealed carry is legal) would be more effective at defending themselves against this form of attack. Now, after this tragedy, we are all left to wonder- will policy makers realize and correct their errors?  What is it going to take to convince policy makers that Concealed Carry Saves Lives?

Just who are these policy makers?  Do they have names?  Do they have faces? 
They seem to be as effective as the enemy.  At Fort Hood- their work enabled the enemy.  How can these policy makers be identified and stopped?

The following history questions need to be researched and answered-

1)  When were privately owned guns banned from Fort Hood?  Why?  Who banned them?
I have heard from ex-military that privately owned guns were banned in the late 70's or early 80's.  Is this true?

2)  Where were the armed guards?  I have heard that armed guards were common at Fort Hood in the 50's.  Is this true?  When were the number of armed guards reduced? Why?  Who reduced them?  When was Fort Hood security outsourced? Why? Who outsourced it?

If we can understand and dissect the evolution of these policies, then we can be better prepared for the fight to reverse them.  I believe that the internal operations of Fort Hood were more secure in 1949 than they are in 2009.  Don't agree?  Prove me wrong.  We will all learn something through the exercise.

Here is a comment worth repeating-
Tracy (a commenter to the article HERE) writes:
"I have a standing order: If I am killed in a situation where I have been prevented from lawfully carrying a firearm for self-defense and where shooting in self defense would likely have saved my life, my life insurance and other financial assets will be used to sue the authority that prevented me from carrying a gun."

This comment gets to the point of how to attack flawed "anti-gun" policies.  When policies inflict or enable harm- the policy makers must be held liable. 

These cowardly policy makers have done too much to harm our country already.  They must be stopped and pushed back.  We citizens must hold them accountable for their bad ideas and social experiments.  These are real lives we are dealing with.  We are not guinea pigs.  We have our common sense.  We know what is right and what is wrong.

The right to defend.  The duty to defend.  The right to attack.  The duty to attack.

The families and individuals harmed in the Fort Hood attack should immediately form a class action suit against the policies and policy makers who enabled the harm.  The men and women killed and injured in this attack had a right to defend themselves.  Their means to defend were stolen by policy.  Their rights were stolen.  Their lives were stolen. 

The regulations against guns on this base can be likened to regulations against seat belts on the highway.   You know we are driving (we are at war) and you know there are chances we can crash (we can be attacked). Now, we order you- do not wear your seat belts (do not wear your guns).  When a car swerves into your lane, just brace yourselves for impact. 

You see- bad policy can enable the enemy.  Fort Hood is proof.  If you can't trust your soldiers to carry guns- who can you trust?

Global Warming Religion Violates Separation of Church and State

If climate change environmentalism has the same weight in law as religion and “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” - isn’t cap and trade legislation a logical violation of the First Amendment?

The Wisdom to Do No Harm – Article 2: The Living Being

The Wisdom to Do No Harm - Article 1: The Doctor was published on American Thinker earlier this month. Below is the second article in the series.  With recent announcements of a health care bill rollout and upcoming vote in the House, I have decided to publish this second article here on Kish Collections.

The Wisdom to Do No Harm – Article 2: The Living Being

Let’s step back for a moment and take a look at the current U.S. health care system from the footing of common ground.  I think that everyone, short of Einstein, would agree that the health care system is highly complicated.  We could also all agree, that like the human body, very few people completely understand all aspects of its function.  In fact, there may be some areas of the health care system, similar to the human brain and the disease of cancer, for which no one on this Earth may ever fully understand or adequately remedy.  This is a sad situation- but such is life.

In the current system, there are at least 700 thousand doctors serving a population of at least 265 million people. Each member of the system is currently dealing, as only they can, with the burden and responsibilities of each unique health care problem, crisis and decision.  When you look at it this way, from the bottom-up, this body becomes much more than a mindless populous under the rule of an all-knowing and all-encompassing government.  The health care system itself can be viewed as a living and breathing organism.  A body of millions of educated and informed individuals- each vested, committed and dedicated to victory over each of their individual health care problems.  It is arrogant foolishness to think a handful of pedant politicians can set up a better system from inside the stone walls of the capital building.

Yet, citizens continue to watch as elected leaders attempt to sell a false premise- “If the government does nothing, then the health care system (the patient) will surely fail (die)”. 

In contrast, consider for a moment a true premise- Federal entitlement programs, which were greatly expanded in the years of prosperity following World War II, are currently running out of money.  For more on the subject- look here, here, here, here and here.  At its root, the health care crisis is an economic problem. 

The politicians pushing national health care reform simply want more money from more people in order to create new, larger and more complicated governmental systems.  The well-meaning hope is that larger systems can financially prop up and bail-out the existing governmental systems, which are already insolvent.  Yet the underlying hope simply appears to be more governmental control over the U.S. economy.  This hope, for many of our leaders, is driven by a firm belief in command and control government. A system in which elected leaders are the brains and citizens are the brawn.  Good citizens, under control, mindlessly carrying out the seemingly benevolent wishes of the dear leaders- always supporting and always re-electing. Yet, socialist conspiracies set aside, health care reform is just another government bailout.

Although in this case, it’s government bailing out government. At its core, health care reform is a massive tax increase.  The task is to continue feeding the morbidly obese Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security entitlement systems.  Politicians know this truth is a hard sell.  It is much easier to present a false premise.

Has anyone ever heard the story of the family doctor?  The one where the doctor explains to the patient, “I have the easiest job in the world.” The patient asks, “Why would you say such a thing?” The doctor replies, “Because ninety percent of my patients will get well all on their own.”
Reasonable people should consider this lesson and begin to apply it to the health care system as a whole.  Earlier I defined the health care system as a living organism consisting of millions of intelligent individuals each vested and committed to success.  Let me reiterate- this system is not a machine.  It is a living being.  And because this is true, as with all living beings, it has the wonderful capability of healing itself naturally.  Let me ask you:  What specialists have diagnosed the entire health care system as a terminally ill patient?  What are their medical credentials?  What tests were run to arrive at such a conclusion?  How certain are you (as the patient, the consumer, the financier, the taxpayer) that our elected leaders are competent and trustworthy in the task of reform?

At this point, we can’t even get the health care reform “sales force” to explain in detail what the proposed treatment entails.  The way I understand it, right now there are four or more different large-scale health care reform bills floating around the halls of the legislature.

Recently, I watched a Senate committee markup of the Baucus Health Care Bill on C-SPAN.  During the session, one of the Senators read a newspaper headline and presented it as the fact-basis of his position.  Observing this, I thought- don’t our leaders have access to better information than the newspaper they read over brunch? Additionally- if this bill is passed, who will appear at the top of the org chart of the newly formed governmental enterprise- the editor of the New York Times?

The people in command, the people making our decisions- our legislators, have stated publicly that they do not understand what they are writing or reading. If this weren’t such a serious situation it could serve as a comedy. From the outside looking in, our leaders appear to be better suited to address the topic of steroids in baseball.  How can anyone reasonably expect these same people to devise and administer a treatment (a reform plan) that will work?

It is more likely with this bunch, that the health care treatment itself will cause death.  In a hospital, would you allow you’re doctor to administer a dangerous and painful treatment without first fully explaining the procedure, including all the known benefits and risks?  The clear answer is NO.  Why then do so many people continue to accept this kind of treatment from their elected officials?

We need a different approach.  Instead of a sales pitch, we need to attack our problems as a doctor would- by diagnosing and treating each ailment separately. Einstein said- “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Many of the health care efficiency answers already exist in the nature of the living being.  In the future, I will list and explain these underlying solutions in greater detail.

But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves- before our politicians can even begin to attempt a successful overhaul of the health care system, they must first fix their own problems.  It is foolish to expect a politician to think or act as a doctor.  With respect to health care reform, clearly the doctors have the wisdom, the patients have the motivation and the politicians are in the way.  Unless the voters are able to replace all politicians with medical doctors, government should not make our health care decisions.  Allow me to state these again clearly- Politicians should not be allowed to structure our health care systems.  The task is beyond their scope of work and clearly exceeds their skills.  We, the people, need to find the wisdom, the courage and the method to speak the words- “first do no harm”.

Why I listen to Michael Savage- every day.

Attached below is a copy of Michael Savage's broadcast from 10/27/09.  I encourage anyone and everyone to listen.  In this episode, Michael takes a stand for Faith and launches an attack on Larry David for the content of his HBO show "Curb Your Enthusiasm".  Michael does this while taking a deep dive into the meaning of "culture" as it applies to his slogan: Borders, Language and Culture.  Warning- this show is highly addictive.  Do not listen if you not prepared to deal with the consequences.

If you have trouble playing the clip in this window, here's a direct link to the mp3 file.

If you want to learn more about Michael Savage look- HERE, HERE and HERE.

Update:  Michael is now calling on all people of Faith to cancel their HBO subscriptions in protest of the recent episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry David urinates on a painting of Jesus.  I don't have an HBO subscription, but if I did, I would cancel it today. Here is a copy of Michael Savage's broadcast from 10/28/09 where he calls for all people of Faith to organize against the evil "sewer pipe" that flows out of Hollywood.
