    "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

          According to Songfacts,  B J Thomas' "Raindrops keep falling on my head" was the first million seller for songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David.     I was surprised to read that since the duo wrote many songs for Dionne Warwick.   The Carpenters' "Close to you", another Bachrach-David composition, sold a million or more but that was not released until the summer of 1970, or months after this one."Raindrops...." was from the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" with Paul Newman & Robert Redford.   It became his signature song and a best seller.    Click here    Tags: "Raindrops keep falling on my head" by B J Thomas  To[...]

            We will get back to the partisan battle zones soon but let me share a memory of an important inauguration.    Inauguration Day is a very special day that transcends partisanship. Mr. Trump spoke the same words that every new president has spoken since George Washington in 1789. It is an awesome example of continuity and peaceful transition. It is so rare in world history that it leaves you astonished, especially those of us who grew up in places where this does not happen.    For many of us, Ronald Reagan will always be that special politician who made us conservatives. It was certainly my case when I became one of those young Reagan troops fighting for the 1976[...]

    I figured someone had to say it.      I googled the title of this blog post and came up with essay after essay asserting that Global Warming Climate Change made the drought worse. I couldn't find anything saying it had ended the drought. If the thing is so powerful that it can cause rain to fall here and not there, parching a forest, then it must also be able to make rain fall there and not here, turning a desert into a fruitful pasture.        Or something like that.        Or maybe I've got it all wrong and Global Warming Climate Change is effectively Satan, only doing evil. I guess that would make scientists and government regulators into angels, fighting[...]

    Dear Friends: As we begin the week that will lead to Donald Trump's inauguration as President of the United States, Silvio and I have arranged to interview a wonderful woman who can give us some insights about the man. So, please join me this Wednesday, Jan. 18th at 10 am PST/noon Central/1:00 pm Eastern Standard time on Canto Talk (click HERE for the live show or for the podcast after).As with all shows, Egypt will be mentioned. In this case, I will have to lead off the show with Egypt, because that is how I met Terry Lee Ebert Mendozza. We both share a love of the movie Cleopatra, the 1963 version with Elizabeth Taylor, and are on a Facebook group celebrating the film.However, she took her passion to the galactic level by[...]

      THINK TRUMP THE MOST UNPOPULAR PRESIDENT-ELECT EVER? THINK WE ARE THE MOST DIVIDED WE HAVE EVER BEEN? WELL, THINK AGAIN      With questions of Russian involvement in the election and at least one leading Democrat saying Trump's Presidency will be illegitimate, many Democrats are staying away from the inaugural. Entertainers are refusing to perform. President Obama is threatening to hang around just blocks away, a constant gadfly for the new administration. Democrats are calling for an independent commission to investigate the election.                 Has their every been a time we were more divided, or an incoming president more reviled?       [...]

     Senator, I don't recall, is an often heard response to potentially damaging questions when a Washington politico testifies in front of a Senate hearing. It's a safe way of avoiding the out-right lie one would otherwise have to give to avoid answering in a truthful and damaging way.When asked by the FBI in July about her use of a private server and handling of classified emails while Secretary of State, I don't recall was an often heard answer from Hillary Clinton.It seems the smartest woman in the world can't remember ever being briefed on security measures or the proper handling of classified documents.

    Yawn - Chargers to Leave San Diego

    The impending move of the Chargers to Los Angeles has left with me with a so what feeling.  I lost emotional connection with them a few years back.  I had no intention of supporting another hold-up of the city finances.      The only silver lining is that maybe we will have incentive to figure out how to make stadiums profitable without football teams. If that problem could be solved, we could build stadiums and not get soaked on the deal.          So long.  And good luck playing second fiddle to the Rams in LA.  

    Putin, Trump, Obama and Our Shared Interests with Russia

    The current insanity over the Russian hacking of DNC emails, not yet proved in my opinion, is another tempest in a teapot.  It has merely provided Obama another opportunity to demonstrate his petulance and contempt for Trump.  It's ironic that the hacks, as revealed on Wikileaks, demonstrate just how corrupt the media and Democratic party are.  Their collusion is only surprising as to the vastness of its extent. Worth considering is the extent to which our nation's interests align with Putin's.  This is not the same as admiring Putin, who is a dictator and likely murderer.  But he is also the leader of a singularly important nation, whose interests have changed since the cold war.  Full[...]

    While watching Ted Cruz doing a presser in Arizona at the border of the United States and Mexico, I just shook my head. That is my current reaction to anyone or anything mentioning the border. When two former Mexican presidents thought they would share their foul mouthed expression over Mexico paying for a wall I laughed. Dolia Estevez wrote about the most corrupt people in Mexico and you bet politicians were named, so much for being the beacon of light and truth that they believe they are when speaking of public policies.I think I have finally come up with the best idea for the border wall. Well I dont want to steal credit for the idea, my mother in law Lillian actually thought of this, and its a brilliant. What makes it[...]

    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[...]

        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.

        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[...]
