    "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

    Remember when personal conduct did not affect your job?

            Back in 1998-99, many Democrats and liberals defended President Clinton.   My favorite defense was that President Clintons private behavior did not affect his job, i.e. look at your 401-K and the unemployment rate was something I heard about on TV back then    I find this interesting because Bill OReillys alleged personal conduct did not affect his job either.   After all, his ratings never dropped.      This is why Ive grown so skeptical of any public figure accused of sexual harassment, specially when we hear about them on The New York Times.    Back in the summer of 1998, when many of us were caught up in the McGwire-Sosa home run chase,[...]

          Omar Enrique (Gonzalez) Vizquel was born in Venezuela on this day in 1967.   He was too young to watch Luis Aparicio play in the major leagues but I'm sure that he heard a lot about him growing up.    Every kid in Venezuela knows about the great Aparicio. Omar was an outstanding shortstop.   However, let's not overlook his bat:  .272 BA, 2,877 hits, 456 doubles and a very good .336 On Base Pct. Will he make the Hall of Fame in a couple of years?   Probably not but he will eventually.

    Thanks to our unusually wet winter, we've had an abnormally large springtime insect bloom. In addition to the Crane Flies I've photographed recently, there are Sphinx Moths a-plenty. I caught some of them sipping on flowers in our back yard last night. I shot it in 1080p and then edited it down to 720p to focus on the moths. It might be worth watching in full-screen mode. Enjoy

    I'm listening to Mike Nesmith's autobiography, Infinite Tuesday, these days. Mike was one of the Monkees, in case you didn't know. The book is painfully honest and that gives it tremendous charm. More on that in another blog post, perhaps.Mike coins the term, "Celebrity Psychosis," to describe what happens to you when you become a big star. You turn into something of a psychotic and it comes to dominate your life if you don't fight it tooth and nail, which most people can't. It's what causes celebrities to park their cars in fire lanes and be deeply offended when the car gets towed. It makes then scream at paparazzi and then pose for photographers to make sure their face is seen in all the right places. You take advantage of[...]

    Look at this racist report from CBSports: Oddly, none of them were beat off the dribble possession after possession in the Bruins 86-75 Sweet 16 loss to Kentucky. That honor belonged to Lonzo Ball, LaVars son, who watched DeAaron Fox go for 39 points in 36 minutes.I mean calling out an African American for making a mistake is racist, isn't it???? Here's the article in it's entirety: LaVar Ball has a new theory for why UCLA didnt win the national championship he predicted UCLA would win: too many white guys. Realistically you cant win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow, he told The Orange County Register. UCLA had three white starters this season -- Bryce Alford, TJ Leaf and Thomas Welsh.[...]

        Jon Ossoff failed to win a 50% plus one majority in last night's Georgia 6th District special election. Nine million dollars from outside the district (as opposed to $1,000 raised locally) wasn't enough to buy the Democrats an election. There'll be a one on one runoff in June.

        If you think that Chelsea Clinton is everywhere on mainstream media, you're not alone. The New York Post has a nice piece, but a casual search of the internet will reveal Chelsea's fabulousness in a Variety of ways.  She has joined the "conversation" about breast feeding, how brave.  She has also weighed in on sexism, Trump's kids, and how she is fighting President Trump. All this is reported with either breathless admiration for a young one (she's 37) so brave, or all of the intellectual depth of the high school cheerleading squad.The problem is that it's racist. Why? Because she is crowding out the young progressive voices of LGBTQP POCs who are not being heard.  Who are these people you ask?[...]

    The violence and rioting at Berkeley are intended to be a win-win for the left.  I don't think that the timing is coincidental to Trump's inauguration.  Trump has been wrong-footing the left and "flooding the zone" by moving to keep campaign promises with record speed.  The left has been exhausted trying to maintain their outrage.  Enter Milo.  The location and the advance notice gave the leftist globalist scum time to plan their rioting for maximum effect.  It allows them to seize the initiative from Trump and make headlines about Nazis and white supremacists, as to build sympathy to their cause.  Right on cue, CNN tweeted this:        This looks is a win-win for the[...]

    Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) today stepped alarmingly into the ether when she characterized alleged Russian interference in the November election as an act of war.Ok, let me stipulate for the court that I am against the Russians or any other foreign entity messing with our election process. But foreign governments have been doing that sort of thing since Persian gold Darics ended up in the pockets of Athenian politicians to oppose Philip of Macedon (and likely long, long before that). We certainly have gone to great lengths in the past to interfere in other nation's internal affairs, including killing their candidates and sometimes leaders (just ask Diem of S. Vietnam or Allende in Chile; or more recently Obama[...]

    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.   [...]

        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[...]
