The real combat is occurring in the maternity wards. Western democracies have made the ballot the primary and almost only weapon. It's all about the votes. Muslims are having babies and Europeans are not. When the Muslims can elect the government of their choice, the war will be over.

Up to that point, the rule of thumb was that if you were a righteous man, God would pay off with good fortune. When a king was upright and moral, his troops won battles. When he was a pig, his troops lost. Not much was said about the troops who died in combat and their widows, but, hey, we're talking about the kings here, OK?Job is the answer to the question, Why do bad things happen to good people? It takes five dudes to hash this out. Job, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the Naamathite and Elihu the Dude What's Got the Answers.The scene starts with Job[...]
Silvio Canto, Jr. Thursday, March 23, 2017 7:45 AM "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

Maybe retired Senator Harry Reid keeps up with the U.S. Senate these days. Or maybe he is hiding from the ugly mess that he left behind. Who knows and who cares? Back in my school days, I recall that a history teacher said that the Founders had created the Senate as a firewall against the passions of the day. As George Washington put it, the Senate is the saucer where we cool off the tea. I guess that we need a new saucer because this one is not cooling the tea, the coffee, or anything else. The U.S. Senate looks more and more like a place for partisanship rather than statesmanship, as Michael[...]

Dear Friends: It is my pleasure to be a guest on Silvio Canto's wonderful Blogtalkradio.com program, Canto Talk, this Valentine's Day. I will be joined by military history expert Barry Jacobsen to review romance-based myths. So, Click HERE on Tuesday, Feb. 14th at 11 am Pacific Time/ 1 pm Central/ 2 pm Eastern or after for the archived show.Barry will start the program by reviewing some traditional myths surrounding romance. Then, we will review how they have evolved to take darker characters and transform them into romantic heroes, in a trend I will call twilighting.For example, the vampire began its history in literature as a character more suited for Halloween than Valentine's Day.But, in the new Millennium, vampires have[...]
Former California state legislator Chuck DeVore: UPDATE: OK, I guess he's right whether by accident or not. Murders are every year while legislator elections are generally not, and the same people are often re-elected while nobody is ever re-murdered.
Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) today stepped alarmingly into the ether when she characterized alleged Russian interference in the November election as an act of war.Ok, let me stipulate for the court that I am against the Russians or any other foreign entity messing with our election process. But foreign governments have been doing that sort of thing since Persian gold Darics ended up in the pockets of Athenian politicians to oppose Philip of Macedon (and likely long, long before that). We certainly have gone to great lengths in the past to interfere in other nation's internal affairs, including killing their candidates and sometimes leaders (just ask Diem of S. Vietnam or Allende in Chile; or more recently Obama[...]
SEPARATION, NOT SECESSION: GREATER FEDERALISM AND LESS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS THE ANSWER TO OUR DIFFERENCES AS A PEOPLE With Trump's election leaving unhappy Californians as nervous as a Christian Scientist with appendicitis (if you don't get that joke, you don't understand the oxymoron that is Christian Science), some here in the Golden State are calling for secession. That is, for California to leave our Union and go its own liberal way. Trump is't their kind of President, and his vision of America not one they want to stick around for. Legally speaking, I think the issue of states[...]
The violence and rioting at Berkeley are intended to be a win-win for the left. I don't think that the timing is coincidental to Trump's inauguration. Trump has been wrong-footing the left and "flooding the zone" by moving to keep campaign promises with record speed. The left has been exhausted trying to maintain their outrage. Enter Milo. The location and the advance notice gave the leftist globalist scum time to plan their rioting for maximum effect. It allows them to seize the initiative from Trump and make headlines about Nazis and white supremacists, as to build sympathy to their cause. Right on cue, CNN tweeted this: This looks is a win-win for the[...]
B-Daddy 1/12/2017 5:52:57 PM The impending move of the Chargers to Los Angeles has left with me with a so what feeling. I lost emotional connection with them a few years back. I had no intention of supporting another hold-up of the city finances. The only silver lining is that maybe we will have incentive to figure out how to make stadiums profitable without football teams. If that problem could be solved, we could build stadiums and not get soaked on the deal. So long. And good luck playing second fiddle to the Rams in LA.
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[...]
Doo Doo Econ Tuesday, January 19, 2016 6:08 PM 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.
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. [...]
Dean 11/11/2015 9:22:09 AM Over the weekend, Salon writer, DAVID MASCIOTRA, caused quite a dust-up on social media with his own salute to the troops ahead of Veterans Day . 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. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as heroes.If you desire, you can read it[...]
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[...]
These two post-production techniques are examples of techniques that are easy to learn, yet bring considerably more "value" to your images. Firstly, have you ever wondered how graphic artists make text appear as though it was written on objects in Photoshop?
