We, the People, are De-Voted

By George:

The article you will read below was written by me close to a year ago, but for whatever reasons, I didn't publish it. I am not egotistical enough to think that the election results would have been different had I published it, but it would have given me the satisfaction to know that I was able to predict the future. So read the story, and at the end I will inject the new reality into the mix.

Since this year of 2012 is a leap year, that means it is a presidential election year. All the talking heads are pontificating with self-perceived insight into the ultimate results of said election, but I can only listen and shake my head in disbelief. Don't they realize that all speculations may be moot? Someone has to stand up and scream "It doesn't matter who you vote for, because by the time you cast your vote, the winner may already be chosen".

To Mend a Broken Heart

By George:

While the events chronicled here are absolutely factual, the names of the doctors have been redacted for obvious reasons

The cold gloomy February day was mirroring my mood as I sat by the window trying to examine my innermost emotions. I was 44 years old and in top physical condition. I worked out at a gym regularly, and my doctor had just given me a clean bill of health. Yet I KNEW that there was something drastically wrong with me. I was positive of it, but I just couldn't convince either my wife or my physician.

I even tried to persuade myself that perhaps it was just my overactive imagination, but the more I tried to rationalize it away, the more my body kept compelling me to do something about it.

It all started the previous summer.

An Accomplished President

By George:

Once again I am passing along something that I came across in my travels through the Blogosphere. I cannot take credit for its content, but it is something that will either make you think, or make you stop thinking.

It is entitled:

President Barack Hussein Obama's Accomplishments.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple "global apology" tours and concurrent "insult our friends" tours.

First President to bow to a foreign leader.

First President to refuse release of his college transcripts and Student Loan documentation.

A Poetic Plea

By George:

As you know, from time to time I publish content from emails I receive that I find amusing or has a message. This time I am sharing with you a poem that someone had posted as a comment on a story I read on This one is both amusing and has a message. Enjoy.

T'was the night before elections,
And all thru' the town,
Tempers were flaring
Emotions ran up and down.

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had shut off the TV,
Tired of political crap.

The Understanding Heart.

By George:

While the events chronicled here are absolutely factual, the names of the doctors have been redacted for obvious reasons

Monday, May 7th - I looked up from my work, glanced at my watch and realized that I had ten minutes to catch my usual train home from the hospital where I work.  I quickly grabbed my stuff, put my computer to sleep, and bid my coworkers goodnight.  Since the downhill walk to the train is about 8 minutes, I was not too concerned; still I didn't saunter along, but proceeded with alacrity.

Arriving at the train station I noticed that my heart was racing, and I was puzzled because I didn't think that I was walking that fast.  The train arrived and I got on, figuring I just needed a little rest to get my heart back to normal.  I sat by the window staring at the passing scenery, feeling the unusual staccato pounding unabated in my chest. I took my pulse and it was racing at 155 beats a minute.  Having been a paramedic in my younger days, I had an idea of what was happening, but I was not ready to admit it to myself.  When I got off the train some 50 minutes later, the manic drummer was still pounding its incessant beat.

Bordering on Insanity

By George:

One of the many controversies roiling the political scene today is the issue of Illegal Immigrants. I happen to be uniquely qualified to discuss this topic, because about 56 years ago, my parents and I entered these United States of America as immigrants from Hungary. It was during the Hungarian Revolution when we "escaped" from Hungary, and as "refugees", eventually settled in America. (The story of our odyssey probably warrants an article, or maybe even a book).

So against this backdrop, I will offer my opinion on this topic, and via logic, unearth the truth buried deep beneath the "male bovine excrement" of the Media.

Remembering the Munich Massacre

By George:

This Sunday morning, as  usual, I was listening to "Religion on the Line".  When I turned the show on, they were conversing with Ankie Spitzer, who has dedicated her life to the memory of the horrific terrorist event of the Munich Massacre.

I realize that most young people today have never heard of the Munich Massacre, but that is probably why it is most important that event this come to light again.  We have become so acclimated to acts of terrorism today, that the murder of a dozen people may not make much of a ripple on the news front.  But 40 years ago, this was big news EVEN to people who were not Jewish.

A group of Palestinian murderers had gained entrance to the Israeli contingent at the 1972 Olympics being held in Munich.  Before it was over, 11 Israeli athletes were murdered while the world looked on.  Then after  it was over, the world quickly forgot about it.

It is now 40 years later, and Ankie Spitzer, whose husband was one of the Jewish lives snuffed out by terrorism at this event, is trying to get the Olympic committee to devote a moment of silence during this year's olympic event.  As you can probably imagine, they want nothing to do with it.  But she will not give up.

Ankie has gotten signatures from the athletes who are now assembling for the 2012 London Summer Olympics, and she is trying to get signatures from all of US to present to the Olympic committee. We who care about victims of terrorism everywhere, we who want to keep the memory of the eleven murdered Israeli athletes alive, are requested to sign this petition.

You can go to their website established for this purpose and add your voice to the rising chorus.  The chorus that declares to the world "We Will Remember, because we Care."

The Truth About the Obama Mystique (read as "Mistake")

By George:

Although I have covered this topic more than a year ago in a lighter vein in an article entitled "The Play Must go on - NOT", I will this time, however, approach this subject with the severity that it deserves. I have given this issue a lot of thought, and I can't believe that this plain truth has eluded everyone else. Is it some form of cognitive dissonance, or are they just in a state of denial? I listen to talk radio, I watch political television shows, I peruse the pundit-sphere, yet everyone seems to be oblivious to the most obvious certainty: Barack Hussein Obama is NOT our President.

Wait, wait... Before you send for the men with the straightjackets, hear me out. Let me present the facts, follow and research my links, and then you can either categorize me as a whacko, or marvel at my mental acuity to see through facades.

The American Divorce Agreement

By George:

As you know by now, from time to time I will reprint something that I receive via email if I believe my readers will enjoy. The article below is one of those, so tell me if you like this idea proposed below....

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Since we are not going to get gasoline back to $1.50 per gallon and coffee to $2.00 per pound maybe this would be a solution we could live with.

This is so incredibly well-put,  I can hardly believe it's by a young person, a student!! Whatever he runs for, I'll vote for him!


Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, regressive, Marxists, and Obama supporters, et. al.:

Dé·jà Vu, All Over Again.

By George:

History repeats itself, and nowhere is this truer than with Jewish history. We cannot help but draw parallels between the historical story of Purim, and the events unfolding in the current day Middle East. The similarities are eerie.

The tiny country of Israel is once again facing an existential threat necessitating decisions that her very survival hinges on. One of her neighbors is on the verge of of procuring nuclear weapons, with the leaders of this country publicly salivating over the prospects of eliminating Israel and the Jews as soon as they have the means. The terrorists in Gaza are bombarding Israeli cities daily with rockets, that make life precarious for those within reach. And now, a "million" anti-Israel activist (promoted as The Global March on Jerusalem) are threatening to surround Israel from the immediate neighboring countries of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt, to march across the Israeli borders towards Jerusalem on March 30th, with the purpose of overwhelming the Israeli defense forces and "take over" Jerusalem.

By George:

You, my readers, may have been wondering why I have been silent in these pages for a while now. I could answer that in one of two ways. I could spin you a tale of circumstances, coincidences and wonderment, or I could tell you the straight Truth.

Well, since this is The Unmitigated Truth, I cannot do anything but embrace verity. While my absence was precipitated by the demise of my computer, and then some international travel encroached on my availability, the honest answer is that I was lazy and I kept putting off the resumption of these posts. This phase is thankfully behind me, so with my new iPad in hand my new iMac at home, you can look forward to hearing from me regularly.

Though I haven't posted any articles lately, that doesn't mean that I have lain fallow. I have about a dozen articles started, and now I will finish them and present them to you for your edification. I am looking forward to your comments and feedback.
