Silvio Canto, Jr. Tuesday, September 25, 2018 4:30 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
Since last night, weve witnessed several examples of unacceptable news reportage. First, a new woman emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh but even some journalists cant believe what they are watching. The new womans story is based on a corroborating witness who wasnt at the party. What? Apparently he heard something about the party after it happened. Again, what? Jedediah Bila wrote put it this way: Timeline: She didnt know who it was for 35 years Kavanaugh was nominated She met with Dem lawyer for 6 days to assess her memories Accused[...]
We say happy birthday to Ian Tyson of Ian & Sylvia, the wonderful Canadian folk duo. Ian Tyson wrote, and along with his wife Sylvia, recorded some great songs. One of his songs was "Someday soon' recorded by Judy Collins.This is from Ian's official website: "Ian Tysons story is familiar to most. He learned guitar in hospital, recovering from a bad fall in a rodeo, he upped stakes from Vancouver Island and hitchhiked to Toronto, where he met a young singer from small-town Ontario called Sylvia Fricker. As Ian & Sylvia, they were the Canadian stars of the early 60s folk boom that gave the world Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez, the Clancy[...]
With all the talk about white supremacists, you'd think you'd find them around every street corner. At least you'd find them trending on Twitter or something like that. Instead, #BelieveSurvivors is trending. That's a hashtag for those who unquestioningly believe women who accuse men of assault. Here's a graphic for it I saw today. It's all trending because of the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. These are accusations that can't name the time, place, date of his assaults nor can they find any witnesses to corroborate the accounts by the "survivors." And yet, we have the hashtag trending, US senators demanding men shut up and a news media treating it like it's a serious story and not a crude hatchet job.Why?[...]
I finally got my Nikon D60 artillery piece cleaned. Over time, the sensor had gotten dirty, so all of its photos were coming out blurry. $60 later, it was ready to go. I spent a little time yesterday stalking our backyard dinosaurs, armed with the D60 and its telephoto lens.This has been a great summer for lizards. It's been hot and humid and we're catless right now, so there's plenty of food and no predators. The lizards have waxed fat and prosperous. I didn't see any of the really big ones, but I did track down this saucy fellow peering at me from under a bush. I left the photos large, so they might be worth a click. Enjoy.

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[...]

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[...]
