Correctness and Political Incorrectness,
Political correctness is telling people what you think they
want to hear in an ideal world.
Political incorrectness is telling people what they are reluctant to
believe in the real world.
What follows are 6 examples of political correctness vs. political
The Republican party is the real enemy and is blocking progress towards solving
the world’s problems because of its intransigent opposition to present Obama and future Clinton-inspired
The enemy is not the Republican party, but federal
regulations slowing the economy to a crawl,
failure of effective international
and domestic security measures, and out-of-control
health care costs.
Ineffective and inadequate gun
control laws are the root cause of terrorist-related incidents.
None of the highly publicized incidents – in
Chicago, at Stony Brook, Fort Hood, San Bernadino, or Orlando – would have been
prevented by strict gun control laws, except, perhaps, by a ban on assault
Thanks to Obama policies, ISIS is in retreat around the world. What is
needed is patience with the current approach – killing ISIS leaders with
drones, economic sanctions, periodic air
strikes avoiding collateral damage to civilians, and avoiding U.S. troops on
head of the CIA, says
ISIS is on the rise and is rapidly metastasizing outside of its Middle Eastern and North African bases. We need to tear out ISIL at its roots; send in U.S. ground troops in concert with
allied troops, to do the job; identify ISIL by its name “extreme Islamic
terrorists”; and either stop, arrest, and put ISIL-inspired dissidents under close
Assiduous application of ObamaCare policies will
ultimately increase quality, lower
costs, and expand access for all.
over six years into ObamaCare,
the health law has not increased quality, lowered costs, or expanded overall access for the middle
class, indeed, the opposite is true.
Federal regulation, and
impugning the motives of the medical industrial complex and physicians,
will achieve its aim of improving U.S. health system outcomes.
To date, CMS initiatives and regulations, have not lowered costs or improved
performance of Accountable Care Organizations or of primary care physicians, or
increased satisfaction of health care
consumers ( “Early Performance of Accountable Care Organizations in Medicare,” “Two-Year
Costs and Quality in the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative,” NEJM, June 16,
Sooner or later,
physicians and the American public will recognize the wisdom and
effectiveness of federal intervention
into the health care system.
Maybe, but we’re not there yet. Other than a few groups, like the 2000 members Physicians for National
Health Care, 60% of physicians in
national surveys are pessimistic about benefits of top-down government
intervention. So too, is the public at
large, with more than 50% showing disapproval of ObamaCare.
The phrase “extreme Islamic terrorism” should
never be used because it besmirches the entire Islamic religion and all
The phrase “extreme Islamic terrorism” is useful because it specifically identifies the
enemy of Western civilization and clarifies what must be dome to defeat Islamic
extremists, who are a tiny minority of all Muslims.
and “homophobia” are incendiary, hateful, linked hate words that express
an underlying attitude of American culture.
There is little evidence that Americans
systematically hate its 3.3 million Muslim citizens or deprive members of the
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender
community of their rights.
York Times has accused Republicans
of corrosive politics that contributed
to the Orlando tragedy and of the “complicity” and “exploiting of prejudices” by the
NRA and by implication Donald Trump in shaping
the mindset of the Orlando assassin.
The Orlando tragedy is not the fault of any
particular political party. There is
plenty of blame to go around, but most of it should be directed at ISIS, and its policies of punishing the infidels and
non-believers in Shiaria Law, not at a political party.
The principle problem making the Orlando massacre
possible was the availability of assault weapons and the failure of sufficient
background checks to identify potential killers. The killers at Sandy Hook and Savannah were,
after all, not Muslims, but mentally unstable white men.
ISIS propaganda inspires lone-wolf martyrs to
kill infidels. Most Muslims are
law-abiding citizens, but unfortunately recent mass killers – in Chattanooga, Fort Hood,
San Bernadino, and Oregon – have been radical Islam extremists who have
passed background checks and legally purchased guns. Stricter
gun control will help, particularly banning assault weapon,s but so would surveillance of mosques, stricter
vetting of Muslin immigrants, and allowing the FBI and other law agencies to
be less political correct in questioning and retaining suspicious Muslims.
When pondering the
performance and effectiveness of the Obama administration and Republicans, look not
at the good intentions but at the tangible results. In the words of Groucho Marx, who after
catching his wife in bed with another man, denied anything was going on and asked his wife, “Who are you going to trust, me or your lying eyes?”
