    Alabama:A Shelby County husband and father has been found guilty in the slaying of his longtime friend who was shot multiple times in the stairwell of her Highland Lakes home in 2016 and found dead by her young son.After only one hour of deliberation Tuesday, the jury convicted 39-year-old Adam Michael Burrus in the murder of Connie Woolweaver, a beloved mother of two.

A week before her death, Woolweaver text messaged a friend, saying she was not going to[...]

    "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

            New York is joining other states in approving drivers licenses for illegal immigrants.  This is from the Hill:    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) will sign a bill allowing undocumented immigrants to apply for drivers licenses in the Empire State, a counsel to the governor announced Monday evening.    The measure was approved by the state assembly last week and passed the Democratic state Senate on Monday, according to WKBW.    Cuomo has long supported the policy but has expressed concern that information collected through the application process could be used against immigrants.    In a statement, Counsel to the Governor Alphonso David said Attorney[...]

    "The reserve clause" and the story of Curt Flood

            Curt Flood was a pretty good baseball player.  He was a career .293 hitter and an important piece of the St Louis power team that won 3 National League pennants in 1964, 1967 and 1968.   Flood played on a team that included Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Orlando Cepeda, Tim McCarver and quite a few others.    However, he made labor history many years ago:    On June 19, 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court rules against Curt Flood in Flood v. Kuhn, denying Flood free agency as a baseball player. Flood was trying to break the reserve clause that had tied baseball players to one franchise since the establishment of professional baseball.    In other words, he[...]

    ... is not acceptable behavior in humans. Well, some of it at least.When our dogs bark at strangers outside our gate, we don't freak out. It's just the dogs being dogs. If a guest or one of our kids ran out and shouted at strangers outside our gate, we'd have a problem with them.Recently, Kyle Kalashnikov, or whatever his name is, lost his acceptance to Harvard because he said some naughty words as a teen. Steven Crowder, a comedian, is regularly trashed by Right Thinking People for saying naughty words. I never see these Paragons Of All That Is Proper slagging rap artists for saying naughty words.The only thing I can think of is that our noble and aristocratic Elites see Steven Crowder as a person, but feel that the rap[...]

    At the gym this morning, on one of the TVs, was the CEO of Google, old what's-his-name.Aside: Why do gyms think you want to watch political shows while you work out? Why isn't it all travel, adventure and sports?Anyway, some CNN airhead was interviewing him about hate speech and controlling the political discourse on YouTube and elsewhere. It gave me chills.Here's the head of this ultra-massive multinational whose control over communications is utterly dominant and whose corporation is completely in bed with one particular political party, calmly talking about what opinions will be suppressed on the Internet.I'm guessing that the racist ravings of Ta-Nehisi Coates won't be among the ones banned from YouTube.In completely[...]

    Leftist ViolenceComes toAmerica, a Historical Perspective(To read previous installment, go here; to start with Part One, go here)19th century Europe was marked by growing leftists movements, which attempted several short-lived revolutions throughout the continent. While these leftist risings failed, a new left-wing extremist movement, theanarcho-communists, grew out of them.The word itself comes from a Greek word, anarkos, which means without a chief. Anarcho-communist believe that all government should be abolished along with private property, and thatcommon ownershipof themeans of productionin combination with astateless societies should be the organizing principle. To bring about such change, anarchists argued that violent[...]

    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[...]

    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.   [...]

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[...]
