Silvio Canto, Jr. Saturday, August 29, 2015 10:30 PM "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 American Thinker post) President Obama's latest case of executive overreach has hit a wall or Judge Erickson: A federal judge in North Dakota acted late on Thursday to block the Obama administrations controversial water pollution rule, hours before it was due to take effect.Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota found that the 13 states suing to block the rule met the conditions necessary for a preliminary injunction, including that they would likely be harmed if courts didn't act and that they are likely to succeed when their[...]
K T Cat 8/28/2015 6:19:29 AM After yesterday's post wherein I showed my affection for The Donald because he's showing that the progressive cultural gestapo is powerless, I listened to parts of a Trump speech.He's an idiot.He said all kinds of sensible things and then he said all kinds of ridiculous things. He's the guy at the bar who wants to talk politics with you after a few beers. Interesting for about 20 minutes and then you want to get away. God help us if he gets elected. Still, he'd be better than bringing in Hillary's organized crime syndicate or the progressive fascism of Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. I think. Maybe not.Peggy Noonan, probably the only political pundit worth reading, has a typically outstanding analysis out today. Her claim is[...]
Today marks the 76th anniversary of the release of the Wizard of Oz. Mark Steyn marked the occasion of the 75th anniversary as only he is capable, detailing the genesis of the film's hit number, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, embedded below. As a kid, I always loved the Wizard Of Oz, and felt, growing up, I did not live in Kansas, or as Steyn put it: . . . in drab, dusty, cheerless, broken-down black-&-white Kansas. I lived in Oz. The pace of technical innovation in this country was charging ahead starting in the 1960s and Tomorrowland was my favorite themed area of Disneyland. But lately I have been more pessimistic, thinking that the underlying cultural conditions that allowed such technical[...]
Watched all of the #GOPDebate and drunk tweeted on my BDaddyLiberator account. I wasn't going to, because, as I told Mrs. Daddy, it's just entertainment. Her response was that it was the best entertainment we had available last night. Sadly, she was right.My take in brief:1. The Donald followed Steve Sailer's advice and went all in for the white male vote.2. Rubio impressed, surprisingly. It is an important point he made that Mexico is not the prime source of illegals. But he failed to leap to the easy solution, pay Mexico to keep Hondurans, Salvadorans and Nicaraguans out of our country.3. I disagree with friends about Jeb Bush who thought he looked good; he looks like way too try-hardy, or as[...]
... you've got a big dump in your pants This is CVS, the drug store, which some idiots blew out at $87 or lower this morning. Same thing happened with lots of other stocks and even the whole market to a lesser degree.
W.C. Varones 8/8/2015 6:01:55 AM Those of you outside California probably never saw this ad, which was the talk of the state during the 2010 Senate primaries.Fiorina got a lot of "WTF?" reactions to the ad, but I thought it made a good use of silliness and hyperbole to make serious points about her opponent's record.
Doo Doo Econ Wednesday, August 05, 2015 5:00 AM Doo Doo Economics are the policies of overspending, printing money, neglecting the key economics issues, bad science and promoting entitlement programs which all add up to higher taxes during a recession and economic unsustainablility.
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. [...]
It has been a while since writing an entry in this blog. A quick explanation is in order.I have been investigating and accumulating evidence related to the Obama administrations financing, arming and training of Islamic extremists in the middle east. This investigation uncovered the entire Obama Middle East Strategy.Several interviews were with a source who was in the room during many of the highest level meetings during the end of the Bush administration through the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq under the Obama administration. These conversations revealed the Obama administration's middle east strategy, or at least the facade used when talking to American military commanders. The strategy is outright[...]
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[...]
*Youre loving this 4-team college football playoff format, arent you? Youve been loving the weekly unveiling of the top 4 teams every Tuesday night that was must-see T.V. for East Coasters and must-listen radio/must-interwebbing for us work-a-daddies on the West Coast, yeah? And you totally ate-up those semi-final games on New Years Day, didnt you? But youre a greedy one, right? We know what youre thinking, you dirty bird: Now, that youve wet your beak on this particular playoff format, youre of the mind that if 4 teams are good, 8 is better. Did we feel you on that?Well, pump the breaks, there, champ.There are certain logistical details within an 8-team format that need to be overcome, the chief[...]
Recently NFL pro-bowl running-back Arian Foster, of the Houston Texans, came out as a nonbeliever to ESPN Magazine. It was a bold move in a multibillion-dollar business where religion (mainly Protestant Christianity), militant nationalism and sports ...
In January 2013, a large part of northern Mali was under the control of Ansar Dine and the rule of Sharia law. Since the infamous date of September 11 Islam has been misinterpreted around the world. Islam is perceived as a violent religion. However, since ...
