Silvio Canto, Jr. Friday, February 15, 2019 11:30 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
On this day in 1786, future President James Monroe married Elizabeth Kortright. Monroe was 26, a famous revolutionary and practicing lawyer. She was 17 and quite a beautiful young woman. The new couple settled in Virginia and had two daughters plus a son. In 1794, President Washington named Monroe ambassador to France. Soon later, the family moved to Paris and Elizabeth came to be known as "la belle americaine". Monroe was the 5th President of the United States (18171825). We remember him for The Monroe Doctrine and for being the last man of The Founding[...]

In the past week, I've tried to spend a lot more time thinking of thanks instead of noodling on nincompoopery. Since I'm a firm believer that you can train your brain into specific default behaviors, I'm trying to see gratitudinous things all around me and stop yelling at the windshield while I drive.It's made me a calmer and happier person and today it paid off in a concrete way. Coming home from the gym this morning, I thought about the sentiment I would write in my wife's Valentine's Day card and it came to me almost immediately. I just thought of the things for which I'm deeply grateful.For example, if it weren't for her, I'd be this weird, hermit dude with wild hair and nervous tics, writing manifestos in a cabin in the[...]

2/10/2019 1:33:41 PM In school lunches, the tomato paste in pizza sauce makes the pizza qualify as a serving of vegetables. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Agriculture contemplated changes to school-lunch programs that downgrade the assessment of the nutritional value of tomato paste. (Amy) Klobuchar wrote to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack that tomato paste contributes dietary fiber, potassium a nutrient of concern for children as well as Vitamins A & C. It is delivered to kids in popular school items they enjoy eating and drives [school-lunch and breakfast-program] participation.

Jussie Smollett is allegedly an actor. Couldn't prove it by me. You'll forgive me if I don't post his picture. Jussie was allegedly the victim of a very unusual crime recently. It staggers the imagination. Really.Jussie lives in Chicago, and says he was allegedly the subject of a racial and homophobic attack on his way back from a Subway restaurant. At 2:00 AM.Okay There''s at least a hint of plausibility there. The temperature was -21. Plus whatever wind chill there was.. They call Chicago the "Windy City". I've been there. They're not lying. Personally I'd have to be pretty doggone hungry to go out for a sandwich at 2AM, when the temperature was -21, and I had to walk to get there. I'd probably lick the[...]

The suicide was confirmed by the NYC Medical Examiner on Wednesday, just as the City Council passed bills to give counseling to taxi drivers facing financial and mental health issues.The Medical Examiner confirmed Kim committed suicide in his Bayside home on November 5th, the Post reports, adding that "Kim, who had just purchased his taxi medallion last year, was more than $500,000 in debt from the deal and struggling to stay afloat." His friend, taxi driver Young Lee, told the tabloid, "He was in a lot of debt from that. For a while he was making money but then it just went slowly down[...]
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[...]
