Some Adult & Kids books on Veterans PTSD

Jack E. Kemp

I'm working on updating my reading list of the latest writings on PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It includes a book by a college professor in Southern Missisippi who visited the local VA hospital and invited some of the residents to come to his class, one of whom, a Vietnam vet, literally howled after seeing some films. The prof invited him back to help teach the course and his unit in Vietnam became the subject of the book "The Boys of '67." There is a…

It's Time to Resurrect a Sixties Protest Slogan - But With a New Twist

Jack E. Kemp

While others were celebrating and drinking, Willie McTear spent the flight home from Vietnam lost in thought. He tried again and agian to remember the faces of his friends Ron Schworer and Forrest Ramos. Already it was getting harder to recall them vividly, which saddened the big man greatly. He didn't want to forget his friends. He never wanted to forget. When he filed off the aircraft in San Francisco he finally smiled. There wa a crowd there cheering, welcoming him -…

Megyn Kelly previously joined Trump in the mud pit



Jack E. Kemp

Now it turns out that Megyn Kelly is pretty trashy at times. But Megyn isn't running for President, she's running - and not that well these days - for serious media journalist. The answer to the question "Who is trashier, Trump or Megyn Kelly?" is BOTH of them are. I don't want either of them to rise to the top of their professional pursuits.

Here's what Walid Shoebat…

Trump vs. Megyn Kelly, two out of three falls

Jack E. Kemp

Many conservatives are rightfully angry at Megyn Kelly's remarks towards Donald Trump. But the picture is more complex.

Megyn Kelly did destroy her own credibility by chosing to first make a Presidential debate, during a time of national crises, the subject of an issue best suited to the gab fest known as The…

Jack E. Kemp

Gene Schwimmer's take on Trump - and what Schwimmer doesn't address

Jack E. Kemp

Gene Schwimmer, a long time New York resident, has written an excellent analysis of Donald Trump's limitations in an article at American Thinker, calling him a self promoter rather than a Republican or a Democrat. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/08/trump_what_you_dont_see_is_what_you_will_get.html ; I do believe that while Mr. Schwimmer is correct…

Cake Suggestions for Oregon and Other Bakeries

Jack E. Kemp



Since the State of Oregon doesn't allow bakeries to discriminate on the basis of the store owner's religion being offended, here is a suggestion or two for a cake request.



Go to an Oregon bakery in a liberal urban neighborhood (a statement that might be close to redundant on my part) and ask them to make you a cake that says. "I had an abortion and it was successful!" Mind you, you don't need to present a note from Planned Parenthood - just CLAIM…

My Human Growth Hormone injectons in the 1950s vs. Planned Parenthood

Jack E. Kemp



In the 1950s, I stopped growing at 5 feet of height. My mother was just under 5 feet tall. At that time, she took me to our family doctor who gave me injections of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and, over time, I grew to 5 feet 7 inches. We had no idea where the product came from, essentially believing it might well be a lab created compound. My immigrant mother and I didn't ask questions then. I grew taller in my midsection but my arms and legs are somewhat…

Over Ten Thousand Rally in Times Square against U.S.-Iran Agreement

Jack E. Kemp

The speeches in New York’s Times Square on Wednesday evening included cries of "Where is Chuck?" (Sen. Schumer, who was not present) and "Kill the Bomb!" A crowd estimated at between ten and twelve thousand lined both sides of at least six sidewalks leading south from Times Square. Speakers came from all over the country and the world to urge - make that demand - that Congress and its most high profile Jewish member Sen. Charles Schumer - put an end to the nuclear…

Donald Trump's "Howard Dean Scream" Moment against McCain

Jack E. Kemp



When someone in New York City doesn't even have the minimum standards of decency of that city, they are said to have no effin' class (the effin is a thinly disguised substitute for the "F" word). Donald Trump hit a new low in having no effin' class.



America Online reported, with video documentation, that:…

Administration puts Iran in charge of Obamacare Death Panels

Jack E. Kemp



One of the main reasons I have not previously written about the so-called negotiations between the Obama administration and the government of Iran is that I am more of a generalist as a writer, not privy to what goes on in Washington - and I am not an attorney. Only today did I learn - without that much surprise - that the GOP has created a Congressional mechanism to bypass the requirement of a two thirds vote for treaty ratification, as stated in the U.S. Constitution.…

The Washington Post tries to teach Donald Trump about Real World Construction Projects

Jack E. Kemp



Conservative Treehouse today examined a rather snarky piece in the Washington Post which tried to smear Donald Trump as an employer of illegals to work on his Washington, D.C. Post Office Hotel via an outside general contractor, a situation where Mr. Trump may have limited or no capability of monitoring their hiring practices.…

Fourth of July Freedom Isn't Free - Lessons from a Rear Echelon Veteran

Jack E. Kemp and Veteran "Steve"



This is an unusual July 4th story. It is a about an Air Force veteran I know who I will call Steve (not his real name) and his complaints about the story I wrote about the Memorial Day Parade in Little Neck-Douglaston, NY this year which didn't express his concerns about the real meaning of the holiday: those veterans who died in the service of their country. This thought wasn't easy for Steve to convey to me because he had previously told me that he…

NY Times Dynasty founder Ochs buried with a Confederate Flag!

Jack E. Kemp
The little mosaic flag pattern at the 42nd Street subway platform is secondary to the historical fact that NY Times dynasty founder and late president Adolph Ochs was buried with a Confederate flag - and his mother was a spy for the Confederacy!

To paraphrase James Carville, drag a $100 investigation through the NY Times and you…

The Pope Goes Full Rosie O'Donnell on Guns

I am reluctant to write this, but there are things here that have to be said.



This Pope is getting stranger and stranger. Recently he stated that:

French Filmmaker Creates a Profound PTSD Documentary About American Veterans

Jack E. Kemp

 

How did a Frenchman get to make a detailed film about American service veterans being treated for PTSD in a Yountville, CA, facility (in the Napa Valley) called The Pathway Home?

Laurent Becue-Renard took to the stage of New York’s Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, after the showing of his documentary “Of Men and War” to first acknowledge the American servicemen who are buried on French soil as a result of their fighting in World War I (the…

Suppose Bruce Jenner entered Women's Boxing

Jack E. Kemp



Here's a hypothetical thought exercise for you.



Suppose Bruce Jenner, after completing ALL his sex change operations, decides he needs some more money because the people who died as a result of his auto accident take all of his cable tv show profits. He then sees a financial - and publicity - need to enter some senior division women's boxing league (perhaps newly formed by his promoters). He then enters the ring and beats up on a number of women a foot…

Red State has a piece  http://www.redstate.com/2015/06/14/democratic-party-now-literally-selling-hate/   ; about the Democratic Party sending an email to all their listed members that advertises - for Father's Day, no less - a coffee mug for sale. Written on the side of it are the words "I Hate Tea" and below that "Parties."
