Silvio Canto, Jr. Thursday, April 27, 2017 6:00 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
On April 27, 1947, baseball said goodbye to the Babe. He was very sick and would eventually die in February 1948. Every major league park remembered Ruth with a ceremony. Of course, the highlight was Yankee Stadium and the Babe showed up. P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk), (YouTube) and follow me on Twitter.

Can we finally put this stupid 100 day marker to rest? It is stupid, silly and tells you nothing about the presidency. In other words, we elect a president for a full term and the first 100 days tells you nothing about what we will think of him a year from now or even 2020 when its time for reelection. Lets remember President Bush 43s 100 days. His presidency changed on 9/11. What about President Obama? He was walking on water in April 2009 and then took over 1,000 Democrats over the political cliff. Of course, the media is running hard to make everything about Trump a failure, as Marc Thiessen reminded us: Despite the best efforts of the[...]
K T Cat 4/26/2017 11:35:11 AM I hadn't planned on blogging about this today, but I spent about 20 minutes over coffee this morning sewer diving into a sequence of neo-Nazi timelines on Twitter. I clicked on one, just to get a flavor of it and then after scoping out his, scanned a few more for a while. It's no different from the racialist progressives I've been yelling about, living in Mein Kampf.These guys were literally trying to live in Mein Kampf, each having at least one tweet wishing der Fhrer a happy birthday on that benighted anniversary.I tried to step back and see what they had in common with their dance partners on the left and this was the best I could come up with: Arguing about race is easier than understanding ideas.Islam is an idea. Judaism[...]

Negocios Loucos 4/21/2017 6:09:45 PM While the scene is not specifically referenced in this Zerohedge Post, the subtext certainly references it. A great explanation of synthetic CDOs from Selena Gomez and Dr. Richard Thaler:
Negocios Loucos 4/7/2017 5:14:36 AM 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[...]
SEPARATION, NOT SECESSION: GREATER FEDERALISM AND LESS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS THE ANSWER TO OUR DIFFERENCES AS A PEOPLE With Trump's election leaving unhappy Californians as nervous as a Christian Scientist with appendicitis (if you don't get that joke, you don't understand the oxymoron that is Christian Science), some here in the Golden State are calling for secession. That is, for California to leave our Union and go its own liberal way. Trump is't their kind of President, and his vision of America not one they want to stick around for. Legally speaking, I think the issue of states[...]
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[...]
