Silvio Canto, Jr. Monday, March 27, 2023 10:01 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

Wife kitteh volunteers with a local Jesuit organization to help poor children get an education. The whole affair is lovely and successful with lots of kids going on to be the first in their families to graduate from college. The work they do is God's work and the people they help are God's children. You have to keep that in mind when the activists drive you up the wall. The activists and the poor are not the same people.We went to the Jesuit charity organization's annual gala last night and had a reasonably good time, save for the fact that I wished I was dead. We'd tied one on the previous night and then my stubborn body woke me at 0340 that morning. I felt like an extra in The Walking Dead. I sat through their[...]
K T Cat 3/25/2023 6:48:52 AM What happens in Iran when you mention that you've noticed the Mullahs have screwed things up again with their wacky notions based on literal interpretations of the Koran? Some dudes in robes with truncheons show up at your door and beat you.What happened in East Germany when you remarked to your neighbor that the store was out of bread and meat again? The Stasi, in their fashionable black leather jackets kicked your door down and hauled you off to prison.How about in Nazi Germany when you talked about how the neighborhood was falling to pieces, mostly because Allied bombers were flying unopposed by the Luftwaffe and bombing the place to bits? The Gestapo appeared and you disappeared.What if you were a West African in the[...]
W.C. Varones 2/3/2023 7:04:10 PM Doctor cycling in California run down, stabbed by driver screaming about white privilege: A doctor cycling along the Pacific Coast Highway in California was mowed down by a driver who then got out of his vehicle and stabbed the cyclist to death while screaming white privilege slurs. Dr. Michael Mammone, 58, of Laguna Beach, was on his bike in Dana Point when he was struck by the driver of a white Lexus. The driver allegedly sped through a red light at an intersection before running over Mammone on Wednesday afternoon, KABC reported. He then jumped out of his vehicle and stabbed the victim multiple times in the back before bystanders tackled him to stop the attack.

B-Daddy 1/26/2022 8:32:44 PM Well not really; and not just because Burnham isn't a household name. James Burnham authored key insights on "managerialism" and predicted its eventual triumph over capitalism in his 1941 book "The Managerial Revolution," summarized here, but skip ahead 5 minutes (this is a great podcast). George Orwell provided this summary in 1943.Capitalism is disappearing, but Socialism is not replacing it. What is now arising is a new kind of planned, centralized society which will be neither capitalist nor, in any accepted sense of the word, democratic. The rulers of this new society will be the people who effectively control the means of production: that is, business executives, technicians, bureaucrats and soldiers,[...]
Which would be the result of actually implementing this whole #DefundThePolice nonsense. To catch you up:From The Guardian:The Minneapolis city council has pledged to disband the citys police department and replace it with a new system of public safety, a historic move that comes as calls to defund law enforcement are sweeping the US. Speaking at a community rally on Sunday, a veto-proof majority of council members declared their intent to dismantle and abolish the embattled police agency responsible for George Floyds death and build an alternative model of community-led safety. The decision is a direct response to the massive protests that have taken over American cities in the last two weeks, and is a[...]
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[...]
