Be careful, Mr. Dorsey


Just saw an interview with Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter.  He made 
an interesting admission:   

"I believe this was the right decision for Twitter," Dorsey continued. "We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all. 

"That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us," the CEO went on.

Failure to promote healthy discussion?  Yes, but what about a failure to promote balance?  I wonder how many "tweets" in 2020 promoted the riots that we saw in so many cities?  Were those accounts taken down for "promoting violence"?

Twitter needs to be challenged on the Section 230 issue.  Maybe AG Ken Paxton of Texas can start a lawsuit against Big Tech claiming discrimination against our citizens.   My guess is that more than a few states will join!

We say happy birthday to Bobby Grich, who was born in Muskegon, Michigan on this day in 1949.

Grich, along with the late Don Baylor, were highly rated minor leaguers in the Orioles' system.  

He broke with Baltimore in 1970 and became a regular in 1972:   .278 average, 12 HR & 50 RBI.

Over the next few years, Grich became the best defensive second baseman in the AL:  Gold glove 1973-76!    

After the 1976 season, Grich became a free agent and played the rest of his career with the Angels.   

Grich had many injuries and retired after the 1986 season:  .268 average, .371 On base Pct, 224 HR & 864 RBI in 2,008 games.

2021 like 1984?

For many of us, 1984 is the year that President Reagan came within 3,700  votes in Minnesota of winning 50 states.   Then there is the other 1984, the famous book about the future.

In this context of the cancel culture, is it any surprise that "1984" is back in the best seller list?   Maybe it's a coincidence or maybe some Americans are reading this from the book:   
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
We will survive this madness.  The Democrats are clearly overreaching, as a stunning Rasmussen poll about President Trump (49% approval) showed yesterday.   Fasten your seat belts and stand up to the thugs because what they really fear is that the 74 million who voted for President Trump will return for sure in 2022.

Happy # 82 Sandy Valdespino

He broke into pro-baseball with style hitting a 3-run homer in Midland, Texas in what they used to call Class B ball, or rookie league today.     He ended that rookie season hitting  .295,  11 HR, 62 RBI, and a team-leading 12 triples.     Wonder what those baseball fans in Midland Texas thought of the little Cuban flying around the bases?
Sandy, as he was known, broke with the Minnesota Twins in 1965 hitting .261 and playing in 5 World Series games against the Dodgers.
We remember Sandy as one of the original 1970 Milwaukee Brewers.   After going hit-less in nine at-bats he was sent to Portland or the AAA affiliate.   He finished his career in 1971 with the Royals and worked as a coach for the Yankees after baseball.
