Silvio Canto, Jr. Wednesday, October 16, 2019 3:45 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
Weve told you before about the killings south of the border. Early this week a police convoy in Michoacan was ambushed by cartel members, with 13 officers killed. The attack is considered to be a message to President Lopez-Obrador: The attack the worst on Mexican law enforcement in years comes at a time when violence attributed to drug cartels has spiked in recent months. No attack on the police will go unpunished, and this was a cowardly, devious attack because they laid an ambush in this area of the road, Gov. Silvano Aureoles said. Governor Aureoles is right, but is President Lopez-Obrador[...]
Maybe I'm old fashioned but baseball is best on the radio. Of course, I like to watch the games on TV but a good radio announcer is still my favorite.Mark Holtz was born in October 1942 and passed away in 1997. He was added to the Rangers' Hall of Fame a few years ago. Holtz was the radio voice of the Rangers from 1982 until 1997, or when he died of cancer.Holtz made a very bad team interesting. Mark had terrible Rangers' teams for much of his broadcasting career. Yet, it was fun to turn on the radio at 7 PM and hear Mark introduce the starting lineup.Sadly, Holtz passed away and was not around for the '98 and '99 division titles or the back to back[...]
Yesterday, I blogged about the (now removed) framed pictures of Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in my garage. As I thought about it, I realized that I had been doing it all wrong all along. I have replaced them with this photo."Barack, I heard that KT is drinking a lot, downloading porn and getting fat because he doesn't work out.""That's no big deal, Ellen, as long as it's not out of alignment with his values.""And his values can be whatever he wants, right?""Right"What a difference a day makes Now when people go grab an adult beverage from the wine cooler or the fridge in the garage, they'll see President Obama placing the Presidential Medal of Face Chafing around the neck of Ellen DeGeneres for carpet eating[...]
I have framed pictures of Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in my garage. I have to explain it from time to time and up to now, I've always been surprised when the question arises and stumble with my response. This is partly because my deep love for the two men has become second nature to me. I'm writing this to codify my thoughts so I can provide a concise answer.Lee and Jackson make me a better man.When I ponder some imprudent action or am tempted to give in to vice, I can imagine General Jackson's disappointment in my behaviors. An orphan by age five and a widower early in his adulthood, probably no more than 1% of the population had as rough a life as Thomas John Jackson. Almost no one in American history[...]

W.C. Varones 8/19/2019 10:54:52 AM The experts agreeWe're going Full MMTSo start buying gold Mauldin Economics on the prestigious Camp Kotok economic gathering:There was an open debate about MMT or Modern Monetary Theory. Brilliant young man economist Sam Rines took the difficult position of being pro-MMT for the sake of debate. He thinks it would be a disaster but is truly afraid we will actually pursue such a policy. There was the usual pushback, which Ive written about more than once, but I have to admit that I was struck by the private conversations after the debate. Many smart, well-informed thinkers were almost resigned to seeing MMT actually attempted in the next decade.
Leftist ViolenceComes toAmerica, a Historical Perspective(To read previous installment, go here; to start with Part One, go here)19th century Europe was marked by growing leftists movements, which attempted several short-lived revolutions throughout the continent. While these leftist risings failed, a new left-wing extremist movement, theanarcho-communists, grew out of them.The word itself comes from a Greek word, anarkos, which means without a chief. Anarcho-communist believe that all government should be abolished along with private property, and thatcommon ownershipof themeans of productionin combination with astateless societies should be the organizing principle. To bring about such change, anarchists argued that violent[...]
PART THREE: UTOPIAN VISIONS LEAD TO BLOODY REVOLUTIONS(To read the previous installment, go here)In 1792 the French liberal intelligentsia, imbibing the heady wine of Rousseaus theories, inflamed the urban mobs against the upper classes.

B-Daddy 6/18/2017 4:30:05 PM As a Bible following Christian, I am often confronted with accusations of hate, along with accusing questions along the lines of what would you do if your child ______________? Father's Day is a great day to answer with the love God grants me through Jesus Christ. I have two adult sons, and both my wife and made their upbringing our number one purpose. Our love them is well-known and shown, so I have skin in the game to discuss this topic. So on to the accusations. What if your son came out as gay? I would still love him of course. Further, I would have good advice for him, remain celibate. This advice is given out of my love. The gay promiscuous lifestyle isn't known for its[...]
Going Hugo Chavez one better, the Democrat controlled California legislator is taking action to ensure that one of their own who voted for the hated gas tax won't get recalled. The legislator is rigging the system to make it harder and longer to recall State Senator Josh Newman (D-Fullerton) whose support for the increase made him a recall target. From the Sacramento Bee:Democrats are pushing late-blooming bills to significantly improve state Sen. Josh Newmans odds of surviving an effort by the state GOP and others to recall him from office.The proposed changes, which became public Monday morning, would add months to the existing timeline of certifying a recall election for the ballot. The measure would virtually[...]
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[...]
He has repeatedly shown incredibly poor judgment. He has persistently and consistently demonstrated that he has such a tremendous bias and animus against Trump that he will say anything and accept any proffer of even bogus evidence to try to remove the president from office. -- Rep. Andy Biggs
