      Following just one day after Bernie Sanders' enormous rally in southern San Diego County's National City, Bernie headed to north San Diego County's city of Vista.                 Arriving at 11am, 2 hours before showtime, the line stretched for more than a half mile all the way down Longhorn Drive and around the corner onto Shadowridge.                  In addition to Secret Service and local sheriff deputies, security was handled by TSA pervs. But they didn't touch my junk.    The crowd was pretty big, filling most of the football field and the home side bleachers.  It was mostly young, with a few older hippies[...]

    San Diego is Feeling the BernIn just one of two local appearances this weekend, Bernie Sanders drew a huge crowd:Im running for president because we are going to create an economy that works for all of us not just wealthy campaign contributors, Sanders said at yet another of his massive rallies, this one in Kimball Park with a crowd estimated at 10,000.Across town "big dog" Bill Clinton drew "hundreds":Bill Clinton told hundreds of people in the Bonita Vista High School gym and hundreds more in an outdoor overflow area where his comments were piped in that they needed to help deliver a big win and the necessary delegates to allow Hillary Clinton to clinch the nomination before the summer Democratic convention in[...]

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

            (My new Babalu post)     President Obamas last year in office has been marked by two awful photos.    The first one was in Cuba with Che in the background.   It caused an outrage as many of you remember reading in this blog.    President Obamas latest photo will upset more than just Cuban Americans. In other words, most Americans remember Ho Chi Minh and the 60,000 troops lost in Vietnam.    President Obama did not have to stand in front of these tributes to Che and Ho.    He could have told the leaders of Cuba and Vietnam that such displays were unacceptable.    So what does it say about President Obama?   It tells us that[...]

    Apparently, we whacked some Taliban dude in Afghanistan.Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was likely killed Saturday in a U.S. drone strike in a remote area of Pakistan, a U.S. defense department official said.Why? We're leaving the place. If you're not going to win the war and impose your will on the country, then what's the point of killing? Whether the guy was bad or good, I don't see the point in killing him. Like the Democrats, to take one example, the Taliban isn't driven by individuals, it's driven by ideology. 4 years from now, Bernie Sanders won't be running for president, but they'll still be some socialist nutbag in the Democrats' primaries.If we're going to get out, let's stop killing people and get out.

    You Get Weird When You Live Alone

    ... or when you only live with people who think just like you. The problem with living alone is that there's no one to say, "Dude, you probably shouldn't do that. It's really weird" when you eat a dinner of oatmeal, bacon and beer dressed in a polyester track suit. Similarly, if you're a post-modern, secular progressive at a university, news media office or in the Administration, chances are good that you're completely surrounded by people who think almost exactly like you. So when you decide that 6', 300# men who dress in women's clothing ought to be allowed to join 12-year-old girls in the restroom, there's no one there to say, "Dude, you probably shouldn't do that. It's really weird."

    Newt Gingrich for Vice President?

    There's a rumor making the rounds that Newt Gingrich is not only on Donald Trump's short list of VPs, but that he is the favorite. He certainly has been making the rounds of the talking head programs talking up his buddy Trump. Trump could do a lot worse than Newtie. Of course, Newt comes with some baggage that might not set well with some women voters. So, let's take a look at some of the pros and cons of a Gingrich vice presidency.On the plus side, Newt is really smart. He's formally educated. He's literate. He's the anti-Trump in this regard. He was the architect and prime mover behind the Contract with America which gave control of the House of Representatives to Republicans, providing balance to the Clinton[...]

    Imagine if you will, that libertarians have taken over a state and seceded from the United States.  Libertarians ideals are fully implemented. There is no minimum wage for example, and libertarians from the rest of the United States have migrated there.  How long would this last?I ask this because libertarians are among those on the right who call for open borders.  The practical effect of an initially successful libertarian state would be an initial economic success that would attract those without skills to work at wages that are illegal in the U.S.  How long before the libertarian businessmen of Libertopia were making fat profits selling goods produced with low cost labor back into the U.S.? How long[...]

    The Confederate Conundrum

    Over at the Alternative Right blog, Matthew Heimbach makes the case for flying the Confederate battle flag.  He is unapologetic about the inherent racism in the symbol and I applaud his honesty.  He also deplores the greed and lack of humanity that led to the importation of slaves from Africa, to be fair. The crux of his argument follows:This flag has become a symbol of the Confederate soldier, but also White resistance to federal tyranny and forced multiculturalism. The men who fought under it rejected the idea of multiculturalism and an empire to rule over them, instead supporting a movement that would allow them self determination. States Rights is a part of this ideology, but it must be understood within the[...]

    While watching Ted Cruz doing a presser in Arizona at the border of the United States and Mexico, I just shook my head. That is my current reaction to anyone or anything mentioning the border. When two former Mexican presidents thought they would share their foul mouthed expression over Mexico paying for a wall I laughed. Dolia Estevez wrote about the most corrupt people in Mexico and you bet politicians were named, so much for being the beacon of light and truth that they believe they are when speaking of public policies.I think I have finally come up with the best idea for the border wall. Well I dont want to steal credit for the idea, my mother in law Lillian actually thought of this, and its a brilliant. What makes it[...]

    A Kinder and Nicer NFL?Are any of you buying the new crisis management public relations campaign by the NFL, Together We Make Football? The NFL has been pushing commercials that make them look like AT&T or Hallmark. Problem is, I dont think many are falling for the new kinder and gentler NFL. The whole reason they have to clean up their act is that there have been so many bad actors in NFL with behavior stretching from bad to criminal that they had no choice but to look like they cared. And rather than really take a look at the behavior and get rid of bad players, they have them do the classic mea culpa like Ray Rice after he beat his fiance unconscious, they go away for a little while either by due process or the NFL[...]

        Once again Americans are facing questions about the definition of a Natural Born Citizen (NBC).This is the simple and indisputable definition: Two citizens who have a child, naturally create a new citizen. This is a Natural Born Citizen.There is absolutely no expert either legal or historical who will argue to the contrary. They may argue to include additional citizens, but this is the core of the definition.Two people who have a child in a location, have a citizen who is native to that land. This is a Native Born Citizen. Thus, terms like "Native American" which imply a location and not an allegiance to a country.A person can be both Natural Born and Native Born, or in the United States we also have Naturalized[...]

                    Do you remember the headlines when Obama apparently declared America a Muslim country on French television?    Taken from an Islamic perspective this statement is dangerous. It sounds as if the President of the United States sees America is a Muslim nation. When you consider translations, this may presented to the masses as exactly that, American President Hussein (an exclusively Islamic name)  Obama declares America to be Islamic. Thus America would be "al-Islam", or territory which may never be ceded to non-Muslims.Semantics, right? Over-reaction, right?Except, this is a long standing meme from not only the President, but also his staffers.   [...]

Here is the headline, followed by the sub-headline and then followed by the first paragraph of the piece:You dont protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracyIt's been 70 years since we fought a war about freedom. Forced troop worship and compulsory patriotism must endPut a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him.

        Theres no denying that over the last few decades most all on-field rules changes made by the NFL have been exercises in increasing offense and scoring. This has created an arms race in a sense where the pendulum swings back and forth between the NFL offenses and NFL defenses whereby the offenses get aided by rules changes and the defenses counter with a combination of innovative schemes and superior athletes. To wit, for years, its been conventional wisdom that the best athletes in the world were in the NBA. Now days, we would add NFL defensive backs and possibly outside linebackers/rush ends into that mix (you dont think dudes like Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis and J.J. Watt can ball a little?).But[...]

    It is more apparent than ever, during this ripening presidential election contest, that there are two parties in America. One of diversity, youth, vigor, and which challenges the status quo; the other of tired old ideas and of old white guys and one old gal.In a world turned upside down moment, we see the two political parties flip roles, each become the other's stereotype.The Republicans this year have become the party of diversity; running a host of candidates who include two Hispanics, an African-American, an Asian, and a woman. The Democrats, the Party of Diversity, are running five old, white men and an old (and very entitled) white woman.The average age of the 15 Republican candidates (Rick Perry dropped out today)[...]

    It seems a long time since the attacks on 9/11/2001; and it seems like yesterday. Thats a trick your mind plays on you with traumatic memories: putting a healing distance between then and now, all the while indelibly imprinting the memory so it always seems fresh; easily recalled as clearly today as when it occurred.In 2001 I was living in Michigan, a business man who worked out of his home office. That morning, I got my coffee and walked down to my office. It was just a few minutes before 9am on a crystal clear autumn morning. My office had a large window, and as I sipped my coffee I looked out at squirrels playing on my lawn.As always, I turned on my computer. Back then, Yahoo was my Homepage. As it booted-up, I glanced[...]
