Sunday's video:   Remember Goldwater 1964



My Spanish abuelo would be horrified by Spain today

Forgive me, but this is sick beyond sick.  Or as we say, “No tiene palabras,” or no words to describe this.
Like many of you, my ancestors are from Spain or the Old World.  On my father’s side, the first Canto moved to Sagua La Grande in central Cuba in the 1850s.  On my mother’s side, my Abuelo Pedro came to Cuba in the 1920s and settled in Ciego de Avila in eastern Cuba.
Spanish immigrants had a great reputation in Cuba.  The men were tough characters who worked all day and started many businesses.  As far as the women, they were beautiful, family-oriented and kept us doing our homework.  They set the table for much of the prosperity that pre-Castro Cuba enjoyed.
My good guess is that our grandparents must be looking down with dismay at this report from Spain:
After winning Spain’s national beauty contest last month, [Mr.] Ponce will become the first transgender woman [sic: Ponce is a man —ed.] to compete in the Miss Universe pageant.  But [he] is also on a mission to challenge traditional concepts of gender and beauty, as well as to break down what [he] sees as unacceptable barriers in the fashion industry. 
“Having a vagina doesn’t make a woman,” [he] said in an interview.  “Even if many people don’t want to see me as a woman, I clearly belong among them.” 
[Mr.] Ponce, 27, grew up in Pilas, a town in southern Spain where [his] father owned a bar that is now managed by [Ponce’s] elder brother.  Pilas was a conservative place, [he] says, where “there was nobody like me.”  That extended to [his] school, which also set [him] apart, placing [him] in a group of children needing special care, alongside some who were dealing with family breakups or who belonged to the minority Roma community.
Well, what would my abuelo say?  My guess is that it wouldn’t be suitable for publication on this family blog.
Men now women?
Did I tell you that the country’s birth rates are around 1.39, or way under the 2.1 per woman to maintain the population?  Are you surprised, then, to see this headline: “Spain’s population set to drop 11% by 2050“?
Something is sick in Spain, and it’s not the bullfights that the left wants to shut down.

California Democrats "loco" about Kevin De Leon......

California Democrats are crazy about Kevin De Leon:  "California Dems snub Sen. Dianne Feinstein for longshot rival, in 'clear-eyed rejection' of party establishment".

Feinstein is a liberal but she is one of few adults left in a party totally invested in identity politics.     On the other hand, Mr. De Leon is just another lefty pushing the party off the edge.

Feinstein will win, according to the polls, but this is just more confirmation that the Democrats are crazy, real crazy.

July 2007: The Democrats should listen to George McGovern!


A post from July 2007:

The Democrat Party changed in 1972. It nominated George McGovern and the party moved to the left.

To be fair, McGovern was a good man and a World War II hero. However, he was misguided about Vietnam and paid the electoral price by losing 49 states, including his own state of South Dakota.

What advice is McGovern giving today's Democrats:
"He is 84 now, is as opposed to the Iraq war as he was to the one in Vietnam -- and is paying close attention to the race for president.
"I'm not sure that an anti-war Democrat can win," McGovern said in an interview. "We haven't proved that yet."
"Some people point to the fact that the war in Vietnam was dreadfully unpopular," he said, "but that when I came out for an immediate withdrawal, it helped me win the nomination but not the general election. And there may be some truth about that." (McGovern: Not sure anti-war Dem can win)
McGovern is right. The Democrats are going to far to the left.

June 2007: The story of the pants has a happy ending!



A post from June 2007:

Here is a story with a happy ending:


This is a story about a legal system out of control. These crazy lawsuits are costing us all lots of money and creating backlogs in the courts.

For one day, there is a justice in the world!

July 2007: The House vote is all about giving the angry left something to chew on!



A post from July 2007:

Last night, the House voted 223-201 to set a timetable for bringing troops home. It was along party lines but 10 Democrats voted with Republicans!

Speaking of Republicans, they stuck together which should settle some concerns about the party breaking with Pres. Bush. 

Where are we? This vote won't please the angry left.

First, this is setting a timetable. The angry left wants immediate withdrawal. They don't care about consequences because they are obsessed with "getting Bush".

Secondly, Pres. Bush will veto this proposal and the House needs 67% to override the veto.

Third, the US Senate has to vote. The Democrats do not have the vote in the US Senate either!

So, where are we? Nowhere! We are back to the stalemate, i.e. giving the base something to chew on because the Dems do not have the courage to cut the funding and assume any responsibility!

P.S. By the way, our troops continue to do fine work in Iraq. We are making huge gains against Al Qaeda. Of course, who cares about beating Al Qaeda in Iraq! The Dems want to fight Al Qaeda everywhere except where they are, which is Iraq!
