    "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

          We say happy birthday to the Babe up in baseball heaven.George Herman Ruth was born on this day in 1895.   We know him as "Babe", "The Great Bambino", "The Sultan of Swat" and the man who hit 714 career home runs.  Ruth was the greatest professional athlete of the 20th century. He saved baseball in the 1920's after the White Sox World Series scandal. It was Ruth and his majestic homeruns that put people in the seats.        He set the season home run record in 1927.  Maris broke it in 1961 with 61.          He set the all time record home run record, a mark that stood until Aaron passed him in 1974.           His[...]

    ... is growing in popularity by leaps and bounds.I'm about to zip over to a friend's house to watch this morning's games where about 6 men are gathering for British breakfast and (proper) football. Of the 6 of us, only 2 of us have been watching the English Premier League (EPL) for longer than a year. Out on Twitter, my man Dean has started following Manchester City. At work, my office mate now texts me regularly when the games are on.For me, football in general and the EPL in particular is the best sport out there. No commercial breaks and almost every game means something. In the EPL, it's not just about placing in the top 6 spots so you can go to one of the European tournaments, it's about not placing in the bottom 3 and[...]

    Two caffeinated chihuahuas.To feed my Keurig habit, I ordered Starbucks Sumatran K-cups from Amazon. They were delivered yesterday before we got home and the two smaller Catican Guards, both chihuahua mixes, attacked the box. One of our sons arrived at the scene before they managed to get into the coffee. He rescued the box and prevented what surely would have been one of the greatest disasters in human history as two caffeine-crazed chihuahuas would have been loosed upon the world.I think he deserves a medal.We came this close to the end of civilization as we know 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[...]

    Every once in a while a piece of legislation is introduced here in California that just completely makes me flip my lid. Now it has happened again. The piece of legislation that is creating more Nanny State and less Manifest Destiny is SB 8 offered by Bob Hertzberg of CA Senate District 18. This bill would tax services offered by small businesses. So just think, the myriad of Vaping and Hooka stores that have cropped in my neighborhood would now have to tax your experience. The small nail shop owner, the hairdresser you have been going to since you were in college, all of these services could potentially be taxed.The worst part of the bill is that Hertzberg actually believes this would enhance the states business[...]

        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.   [...]

Her face and head are bandaged, leaving visible only a bruised blue-black eye and swollen lips.

    The most recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics is Angus Deaton, a British-American Princeton economist known for his focus on data to explain sources of economic growth.  In his book, The Great Escape, he attempts to explain why some nations escaped the grinding poverty that has been the condition of most of mankind since the dawn of history.  In my opinion, part of the trick is asking the question properly, not "Why are so many nations so poor?" but "What sets the rich nations apart that they escaped poverty?"  In The Great Escape he summarizes the answer:Perhaps the best answer is that poor countries lack the institutionsgovernment capacity, a functioning legal and tax system, security of property[...]

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[...]

    It is more apparent than ever, during this ripening presidential election contest, that there are two parties in America. One of diversity, youth, vigor, and which challenges the status quo; the other of tired old ideas and of old white guys and one old gal.In a world turned upside down moment, we see the two political parties flip roles, each become the other's stereotype.The Republicans this year have become the party of diversity; running a host of candidates who include two Hispanics, an African-American, an Asian, and a woman. The Democrats, the Party of Diversity, are running five old, white men and an old (and very entitled) white woman.The average age of the 15 Republican candidates (Rick Perry dropped out today)[...]

    It seems a long time since the attacks on 9/11/2001; and it seems like yesterday. Thats a trick your mind plays on you with traumatic memories: putting a healing distance between then and now, all the while indelibly imprinting the memory so it always seems fresh; easily recalled as clearly today as when it occurred.In 2001 I was living in Michigan, a business man who worked out of his home office. That morning, I got my coffee and walked down to my office. It was just a few minutes before 9am on a crystal clear autumn morning. My office had a large window, and as I sipped my coffee I looked out at squirrels playing on my lawn.As always, I turned on my computer. Back then, Yahoo was my Homepage. As it booted-up, I glanced[...]
