Silvio Canto, Jr. Sunday, June 23, 2019 10:07 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
In The Beatles' 45's collection, there are 3 very strange B-sides. They did not make it to an LP. In fact, they were hidden until the 2-volume CD released in the late 90s. ("Past Masters, volume 1 and 2") The first one is "I'm down". It was the US B-side of the big hit "Help". The lyrics are repetitious but the song is catchy. This song reminds of "Long Tall Sally", a Fats Domino song from a very early album. The second choice is "The Inner Light", the US B-side of "Lady Madonna". On this one, George Harrison plays the sitar and sings. The lyrics are interesting, specially if you are into a lot of[...]
Over the last several years, we've blogged and posted about the amazing Bee Gees, or Brothers Gibb. (They celebrated 50 years in 2010) Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb started singing when they were kids growing up in the UK and then Australia. Eventually, they got an international recording contract in 1967.Barry was 20 and the twins were 17 when they had their first international hit. Robin died in 2012 and Maurice in 2003. Nevertheless, they left us many recordings or memories:

6/23/2019 8:16:16 PM The first formally recognized slaveholder in America was black . . . [H]e was named Anthony Johnson, he was a black Angolan farmer, he was captured in Angola by Arab slave traders, [who] sold him off. He ended up in Virginia, and he was a slave [there]. He was eventually emancipated after his indenture was over, he was freed, and he himself became a successful farmer. He also owned slaves; so, he owned a black slave named John Casor . . . [T]he question is: are the black descendants of Anthony Johnson, a slave owner, entitled to reparations for slavery? Doesnt make a whole of sense, does it? Are the black descendants of John Casor- the slave owned by Anthony Johnson- entitled to reparations from the black descendants of[...]

K T Cat 6/22/2019 1:14:14 PM I finally had to put Mein Kampf down, permanently. I had planned to listen to the whole thing, but it's such an awful book in every respect that I couldn't get more than about two thirds of the way through it.As I listened, I wondered how anyone took it seriously. It's a prolonged rant by a semi-literate loon. For example, he goes on for pages about how the Japanese culture is, in fact, Aryan, albeit with a facade of oriental decorations. There's no proof, just an assertion that Aryans make all things good from which he launches one fantasy after another.Pondering a post on why the Secular Left loves race more than ideas, I think I hit upon it.Mein Kampf claimed that Germany lost WW I because all those dead, German boys were[...]
W.C. Varones 5/15/2019 8:09:10 AM Alabama:A Shelby County husband and father has been found guilty in the slaying of his longtime friend who was shot multiple times in the stairwell of her Highland Lakes home in 2016 and found dead by her young son.After only one hour of deliberation Tuesday, the jury convicted 39-year-old Adam Michael Burrus in the murder of Connie Woolweaver, a beloved mother of two. Investigators found nine shell casings and eight bullet fragments near her body and said one of the shots entered through the back of her head and exited through her eye.Woolweaver, according to testimony, had loaned Burrus a total of $176,000 and was calling in those loans. A week before her death, Woolweaver text messaged a friend, saying she was not going to[...]

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[...]
