    Starbucks Is Cra-Cra

    Is that how you spell it? Or is it cray-cray?So some Starbucks employee somewhere called the cops on non-paying loiterers in their store. The cops then led the loiterers out in handcuffs. This resulted in a stand-down of thousands of Starbucks, retraining sessions for the employees, a corporate apology and a change in policy so that anyone will be allowed to use Starbucks' restrooms.Imagine what that will look like in San Francisco or even here in downtown San Diego.This guy and his compadres may soon be part of the downtown Starbucks experience. YayThis was done because Starbucks was afraid that their workforce might be full of racists and other People of Intolerance (PoI). There's no word on whether or not Starbucks[...]

    Gender Confusion And Declining Birth Rates

    Yes, I'm a curmudgeonly, hopelessly out-of-date fuddy-duddy. Perhaps in the top 1% of the fuddiest of fuddy duddies. That's probably why I see a correlation between a recruiting ad the USMC is running and declining birth rates in the US.If you didn't know, the birth rate in the US declined last year to just about the lowest ever. If you further didn't know, births happen because a man and woman love each other very much and have a "dance" and then the woman gets big and the stork brings a baby and then the woman gets smaller. At least that's what I told my kids between shots of bourbon, sitting on my front porch.We don't seem to have pondered what might happen if we spend 30 years telling young 'uns that there are 37 genders,[...]

    "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

            Back in December 1972, Nicaragua was hit by a horrible earthquake. It killed 10,000 people, devastated villages, and may have been the beginning of the end of Somozas reign. The damage exposed the corruption and inefficiencies of the regime.    A couple of days ago, an air crash in Cuba killed 100 people and exposed some serious problems in the Castro regime.       My good Cuban friend, Dr. Carlos Eire, brought this item to my attention:      Cubas problems have gotten so bad that, a few weeks ago, the country grounded most of its domestic flights because of safety concerns over its fleet.     To continue flying,[...]

    1955: Chuck Berry and the story of "Maybellene"

          Chuck Berry has a very special place in the history of rock.  He is one of the legendary composers and guitarists.     Where would rock be without Chuck Berry?On this day in 1955, Chuck Berry recorded "Maybellene" and the rest is history:John Lennon once famously said that if you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry.' Thats how foundational Berrys contributions were to the music that changed America and the world beginning in the mid-1950s. Even more than Elvis Presley, who was an incomparable performer, but of other peoples songs, Chuck Berry created the do-it-yourself template that most rock-and-rollers still seek to follow. If there can be said to[...]

      Legendary guitar maker Gibson files for bankruptcy  The 120-year-old companys desperate move comes as annual sales of guitars have reportedly dropped to 1 million from 1.5 million a decade ago, as hip-hop music has come to dominate at the expense of guitar-fueled rock.Curiously missing from the story was the assault they were subjected to by the Obama administration just a few years back. Could this have played a part? A golden oldie from LCR, with updates by me.By the Left Coast RebelIs it any wonder that American business is dying?

    Despite CalPERS, like most government pension plans, being vastly underfunded, they're actually still paying out more money to beneficiaries than they're taking in as contributions from municipal employees and employers.CalPERS 2016-17 financial report:Look at the numbers circled in green. That's what they're putting into investments. The numbers circled in red are what they're taking out each year.The green numbers were even lower in recent years. CalPERS has been putting far less into the market than it's been taking out every year. They're belatedly starting to increase contributions, and the net contributions (green minus red) should turn positive fairly soon.To the extent CalPERS is representative of public pensions[...]

    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[...]

        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.   [...]

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[...]
