The generations who founded America and our republic saw that ensuring the individual rights of free people was necessary to limiting government power and to their own pursuit of happiness. This came to be expressed in our Bill of Rights with its ultimate guarantor, the Second Amendment.

What just happened in the 2016 presidential election in many ways was unprecedented and in other ways was expected by keen observers and deep thinkers. Fox News interviewed a university pollster who admitted that all the pollsters, all the political analysts and all the political pundits, were wrong. The only ones who were correct were Professor Helmut Norpoth of Stony Brook University, who was 99% certain that Trump would win, and Anonymous, who also predicted a Trump landslide.

The biggest losers on election night were in the liberal media, an adjunct of the national Democratic Party. But the far-left “progressives” who had backed Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and then rationalized voting for Hillary Clinton lost big. Many conservatives in the media also look like fools.

The left-wingers who were humiliated include:

We alternated watching between ABC News and CBS News. On ABC News, George Stephanopoulos and Cokie Roberts and the Donald J. Trump, President Elect, and family after 2016 winroaming correspondent Cecilia Vega were some of the main commentators.

Teri O'BrienNow that Vice President Joe “Stand Up Chuck” Biden has finally let people get some sleep at night by announcing that he will not be running for president after all, it’s pretty clear that the commie fossil who has gotten so much attention for the last several months will be the nominee. That’s sad news for Sen. Bernie Sanders, who no doubt thought that the big crowds he’s been drawing and Bill Maher’s endorsement, might win the day for him.

Public health has had a magnificent and resplendent history. Sadly, the public health establishment has strayed far from its glorious origins and has gone from a lean, effective medical discipline composed of dedicated, independent physicians and health care workers to a bloated, politicized, entrenched, bureaucracy more concerned with political agendas — and its own existence and budgets — than the public health it had been charged to protect.

On RINOs, prevaricators and moderate Republicans

In his diatribe in the Telegraph [Sept. 21], Jack Bernard, the self-described “Republican Health Care Executive,” insists on debating me and equivocates about his supposed (moderate) conservatism. Alas, he says his published conservative treatises have all been published in other newspapers. What a shame!

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people — now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.

Trump — With moderate Republicans, who needs foes?

The letters in the Telegraph lambasting Trump continue [09/12/16] and that is to be expected in this polarized political season. What is not to be expected, at least by savvy political debaters, is the ease with which these letter writers inconveniently ignore the rebuttals already made in total disregard of the usual rules followed in policy debates!

Insulting voters, demonizing Trump!

Several letters, including some long ones, have been published in my local newspaper, the Macon Telegraph, demonizing Donald Trump. One letter pretending to objectivity and citing the liberal media asserted that Trump told more lies than Hillary — as if a Krystal patty was as big as a Burger King whopper or a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder! Trump may tell little tales from time to time to shock and capitalize on media publicity, even if in the negative. How else could he get through the fog and for free too!

Politics is politics, and to paraphrase the remark misattributed to Bismarck, “politics are like making sausages, not a pretty sight.” Trump, bombastic and offensive to some, is using populism and taking advantage of the disaffection and anger of American voters to get elected president. He did not become a successful businessman from idiocy and pomposity, but from cunning, common sense, and hard work.

My mother and I recently had a difference of opinion regarding Pope Francis. I said that he was naive and certainly not of the caliber of his two previous distinguished predecessors, the two towers of intellect: John Paul II, canonized as Saint John Paul the Great by his brilliant successor, Benedict XVI. She said Pope Francis knew what he was doing and by his words and action is a communist. He has brought about the friendship between President Obama and a dictator, who along with his more majestic brother, has held the Cuban people captive for over half a century.

I find it helpful to look back occasionally at our progress in the culture war waged by organized medicine against gun owners.  The players change and language evolves, generally in an attempt to mask the gun-grabbers’ true intentions.  But one force for gun control has remained constant.  The American Medical Association (AMA) still wants to ban gun ownership by regular citizens, although it will still vigorously deny it, even as it moves toward its goal.

Honorable and worthy vocations

The world used to be more orderly and peaceful. We all knew our roles and place in the world. Guided by our parents, pastors, and teachers, we knew how high we should reach and set our goals, so that one day we successfully reach our niche in life. We studied as children and then as adults fulfilled our occupations and professions to the best of our abilities, or at least satisfactorily and responsibly. We strove to reach our métier in life, so we would not end up as a disillusioned and unemployed “poets manqué.”
