I've started to play with my own recipes for things instead of just taking something out of a beloved cookbook or website. I've also started trying some wacky things I've found online. This post deals with one of each.I want to make my own fried chicken seasoned flour mix. I like the sophistication of thyme or savory as well as the kick of cayenne, so I tried this one recently.1 1/2 cups flour1 1/2 tbsp paprika1 tsp salt1 tsp pepper1 tsp cayenne (red) pepper1/2 tsp white pepper1/2 tsp garlic powder1/2 tsp onion powder1/2 tsp savoryI liked it, but it needed more kick. Next time, I'm going to double the cayenne to 2 tsp.As for the coffee rub, dig this crazy recipe for steak seasonings.2 tbsp chili powder 1 tbsp[...]
When I started my tobacco-growing experiment, I figured the plants would get about 75% to full-grown and then stall out because I was so late in the year. Cold weather and the lack of sun would stunt their growth.I was wrong.The biggest are now a full 6' tall and the others aren't far behind. The plants are also blooming.I harvested one leaf which was yellow and ready to go, a Tennessee varietal, and have hung it up to dry in my garage. Results to follow.
Silvio Canto, Jr. Friday, December 13, 2019 2:16 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
We just learned who Time has chosen as person of the year and its a teenager talking about climate change. Im not going to take shots at a young girl, but she is the wrong person for such a recognition. Over in Hong Kong, people are literally standing up for freedom. I agree with Ben Domenech: In defiance of the most powerful authoritarian regime in the modern world, the protester in Hong Kong has stood against the authority of Red China with courage and dedication. They have not bowed to the brutality of the police, who have murdered, raped, and abused them. They have not run from the tear gas or the hoses. They have[...]
On this day in 2000, The Supreme Court finally ended the election recounts after several weeks of partisan politics and marches here there and everywhere. We remember that The Supreme Court decided Bush v Gore: Seven of the nine Justices recognized, as Will puts it, that the standardless recount ordered by the Florida court different rules in different counties regarding different kinds of chads and different ways of discerning voter intent violated the U.S. Constitutions guarantee of equal protection of the laws. (PowerLine) At the end of the day, the US Supreme Court correctly stopped VP Gores plan, or[...]
In case you haven't seen it, a Methodist church in southern California (Rev. Karen Clark Ristine, pastor) decided they needed to make Christmas more politically relevant this year. Every year, around this time, the Left begins to take some small interest in the Christmas story. However, they insist on recasting Mary and Joseph as "homeless", or more recently as "illegal immigrants". Balderdash (Note: If Joe Biden is listening, you can use that in your campaign) On Twitter, (don't get me started) one budding Scriptural scholar wannabee said that the "real villain" of this piece wasn't King Herod, but rather the greedy innkeeper, who could not find a room for a very pregnant woman.Let's inject just the tiniest bit[...]
W.C. Varones 12/3/2019 9:07:18 AM 1) We're going to need to decouple from the evil Chinese regime. This started as a crazy Trump position but is now bipartisan consensus. This will be painful for multinational corporations.2) Trade war with Europe is just starting up over the French digital tax. Buckle your seat belts.3) Central banks are going to have to print like mofos to keep asset prices up. And they will. Add in some fiscal diarrhea even in formerly austere places like Germany.
W.C. Varones 10/27/2019 2:52:00 PM I'm a huge Ric Edelman fan. I'm a regular listener of his radio show and believe he's made a huge positive contribution to the financial literacy of America.But he sometimes makes some really bone-headed mistakes. The past couple weeks have had some big ones on his radio program.Roth vs. Traditional 401(k)Last weekend's (10/19/19, minute 48) radio show had a caller ask about Roth vs. 401(k)s. The caller correctly made the observation that post-tax (Roth) contributions effectively allowed you to contribute more money, but Edelman rejected the argument:"It doesn't matter. In other words, investing $10 now and paying the taxes later or investing $8 now and not paying taxes later, it's the same math. It doesn't make any[...]

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. To be born into wealth or privilege was deemed an act oftreason against the People.No level of dissent was tolerated: disagreeing with the goals
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[...]
