Democrats waste everyone's time with COVID cash bonanza giveaway bill

Years ago, I heard that Senator Bob Dole said this about legislating:

All you need to know is this.  You can never go wrong by voting for a bill that fails, or against a bill that passes.

Let me borrow a bit of Senator Dole’s wisdom and say this: the easiest thing is to vote for a bill that you know will never become law.

On Friday night, the House Democrats voted for a mammoth bill that includes everything under the liberal sun.  This is from NBC News:

The Democratic-controlled House voted 219 to 212 to approve the bill, which includes $1,400 direct payments, a $400-a-week federal unemployment bonus, a per-child allowance of up to $3,600 for one year and billions of dollars to distribute the coronavirus vaccines and to assist schools and local governments.

The vote split largely on partisan lines, with every Republican voting against the measure and just two Democrats joining them — Jared Golden of Maine and Kurt Schrader of Oregon.

Wonder how many more Democrats wanted to vote “no” but couldn’t?

According to polls cited in the article, the bill was supported by majorities of voters.  If so, then why didn’t any GOP members support it?

In sum, this is a horrible bill with something for every interest group.  It will never make it in the U.S. Senate, and that’s the best part.

Is the border about to explode?


The news from the border is that the kids, and lots of them, are coming.  This is from Axios:   

A Customs and Border Protection staffer told top administration officials Thursday the agency is projecting a peak of 13,000 unaccompanied children crossing the border in May, sources directly familiar with the discussion told Axios.

Get ready for chaos.

The Biden administration is getting the "shelters" ready or the places to put these children. It will also move these children to other places because there is not enough room on the border anymore.

What could go wrong?   Let me share a few possibilities:

1) These kids are coming from Mexico and Central America where COVID is getting worse, not better.  Is it fair to ask:  Who will these children infect?  Are they going to be isolated?  How is that going to look?

2) Who is paying for this?  My guess is that the taxpayers will pay for it but the problem is that no one explained this during the campaign.  All we heard in the campaign was that the Biden administration would be more "humane."  My guess is that most Americans do not believe that "humanity" is the same as taking thousands of children from other countries.  

What will this play in 2022?  Not well -- every Democrat running in 2022, especially in districts between the coasts, will be worried about explaining this disorder on the border.

Kristof got it right


Honestly, I was not expecting this, but Nicholas Kristof is right about school openings.  This is from Fox News:  

“Many Democrats seemed to be more suspicious of in-person schooling last summer when President Donald Trump called for it,” he writes, adding, “We shouldn’t let ourselves be driven by ideology rather than science.”

Yes, a little too much Trump Derangement Syndrome on the Democrat side of the aisle.

Wonder when the teacher’s public union will call on the New York Times to cancel Kristof?  After all, telling the truth can get you canceled in today’s climate.

Many of us have seen Catholic schools or other private schools open and operate successfully in North Texas.  Some of our public schools have also opened with no apparent damage to kids or teachers.  In fact, I spoke with a father a couple days ago who told me that his kids can choose between “in person” or “virtual” in the local high school.

The real question is this:  How much damage has the union done to its brand?  The answer is significant.  You are seeing more and more parents “home schooling” or calling the private schools and negotiating the enrollment of their children.  For example, a local friend who works for the Catholic schools told me that the phone is constantly ringing or parents asking for a spot this year.

Maybe Mr. Kristof can follow this article with one about how the media shot itself in the foot by going anti-Trump 24/7.

Happy # 74 Sandie Shaw

Sandra Ann Goodrich (Sandie Shaw) was born in England on this day in 1947.    She had a great face and super looks!

We remember her for a hits on the radio back in the 1960's, specially "Girl don't come" from the early days of Beatlemania.    Her songs were part of The British invasion!

Vicente Fox sticks his nose into the El Chapo case

Vicente Fox got off to a great start by winning the 2000 presidential election and putting an end to 70-something years of one-party rule in Mexico.   It was historic and very promising but did not quite work out as most Mexicans anticipated.  To be fair, the Mexican swamp is a bit more complicated than ours.  

Since leaving office in 2006, President Fox has found a way of sticking his nose in everything, especially getting into fights with President Trump over the border wall.

He is back in the news with a rather interesting tweet about Emma Coronel Aispuro, El Chapo’s young pretty wife.   By the way, how do they say “trophy wife” in Spanish?  I’m not sure, but Emma fits the description. 

“El Presidente” Fox tweeted about the arrest and a lot of Mexicans are wondering what in the world he’s talking about.  He wrote in Spanish something like this:  “Don’t worry, Emma.  The president will come to the rescue!!” 

What’s that supposed to mean?  President Lopez-Obrador is going to intervene to get her out of the U.S.?   I think that he was referring to the 2020 arrest of a former Mexican defense secretary, retired Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos.  He was accused of drug trafficking and money laundering, the same as El Chapo’s wife.

I asked a couple of Mexican friends south of the border and got a couple of  interesting responses:

First, Vicente Fox is just looking for attention.  He wants an interview with CNN; and,

Second, El Chapo just wants his pretty wife in prison so he can spend more time with her.  

Time will tell but Mexican politics just gets more and more interesting all the time.

Happy # 79 to Mrs Ingalls, one of our favorite TV mothers!

We say happy birthday to Karen Grassle who was born in California on this day in 1942.

She is well known as Mrs Caroline Ingalls and one our very favorite TV mothers.

"Little House" was based on a series of books written by Laura Ingalls-Wilder.  Laura was born in the late 1800's and published the books in the 1930's. 

It was her family's story.  The stories were about Pa, Ma, sister Mary and Almanzo, the young man she eventually married.

I have never read the books but the TV series was fabulous.  The shows were extremely well written, serious and touched on real family issues.

It was a great show.

Happy # 79 Joe Lieberman

Image result for joe lieberman images
We say happy birthday to former Senator Joe Lieberman.   He was born in Connecticut on this day in 1942.

We remember Senator Lieberman for several reasons:

1) In 1998, he stood up in the US Senate and called out President Clinton's Oval Office behavior.   Unfortunately, most Democrats, and specially the party's women, stayed quiet;

2) In 2000, VP Gore selected Senator Lieberman to be the party's VP nominee.   We recall that the Gore-Lieberman ticket lost that election.     Unlike VP Gore, who became unhinged, Senator Lieberman accepted the verdict and moved on;

3) In 2003-04, it was Senator Lieberman who tried to persuade Democrats to adopt a more realistic view of the Iraq War;

4) In 2006, Senator Lieberman was defeated in the Democrat Senate primary but won the election as an independent anyway; and,

5) Mr. Lieberman became a Trump supporter in 2017

We wish him a very happy birthday.   We remember him as maybe the last of the old Democrats.  

The Liebermans wrote a good book about their 2000 campaign memories.

February 24, 1996: The Cuban government shot down US citizens over The Florida Straits

We hear that President Biden wants to change the tough approach that the Trump administration set against Cuba.  He wants dialogue, whatever that means, with a dictatorship.  How can you talk to a regime that locks up its own people?

From Miami to other cities, Cuban Americans will remember today the 25th anniversary of a terrible massacre over the Florida Straits.

On this day in 1996, four young men on a humanitarian mission were killed by the Cuban Air Force.  

Our friends at Capitol Hill Cubans recall what happened that awful day.  This is from Senior U.S. District Judge Lawrence King in the civil lawsuit against the Castro regime and the Cuban Air Force (FAR):

“The government of Cuba, on February 24th 1996,in outrageous contempt for international law and basic human rights, murdered four human beings in international airspace over the Florida Straits. The victims were Brothers to the Rescue pilots, flying two civilian unarmed planes on a routine humanitarian mission, searching for rafters in the waters between Cuba and the Florida Keys.

As the civilian planes flew over international waters, a Russian built MiG 29 of the Cuban Air Force, without warning, reason, or provocation blasted the defenseless planes out of the sky with sophisticated air-to-air missiles in two separate attacks. The pilots and their aircraft disintegrated in the mid-air explosions following the impact of the missiles. The destruction was so complete that the four bodies were never recovered.””

What was “the crime”? They were flying over international waters looking for rafters and advising the US Coast Guard.   It was a humanitarian act that posed no threat to the Cuban regime.

The four victims were: Armando Alejandre Jr. (45 years old), Carlos Alberto Costa (29), Mario Manuel de la Peña (24), and Pablo Morales (29).

Three of these young men were US citizens and the 4th was a legal resident.  

On behalf of their families, I call on the Biden Administration to remember that nothing has changed in Cuba. To my knowledge, the regime has never apologized for the criminal act.

Happy # 65 Eddie Murray

We say happy birthday to Eddie Murray, one of the Orioles' greats.      He was born in LA on this day in 1956.

Eddie broke in 1977 and turned into one of the most consistent hitters in major league history:  .287 career batting average, 504 HR, 3,255 hits and 1,917 RBI.

Murray was a key piece of the teams that played in the 1979 and 1983 World Series.   He hit 2 HR in game 5 of the 1983 World Series to clinch the title for Baltimore.

The pause that doesn't refresh

Well, let me show my age by recalling that famous Coca Cola ad about the “pause that refreshes.”  I guess that it’s been around since 1929 so my parents probably remember it too. I recall that they had a Spanish version of that slogan called “la chispa de la vida” or the spark of life.

Coca-Cola’s employee training is gone woke these days, according to news reports:   

The images show a section of the training titled “Confronting Racism. Understanding what it means to be white. Challenging what it means to be racist.”

The training then moves to a slide with instructions on how employees can “be less white.”

“Be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with apathy, break with white solidarity” are listed as ways to become less white.

The training then claims that this effort to be less white has to start early, as children as young as three are already taught that their white race makes them inherently superior.

“In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white,” the slide reads. “Research shows that by age 3 to 4, children understand that it is better to be white.”

“Try to be less white,” the training concludes.

How does a person act “less white”?  What in the world does that mean?  How do we come together by focusing so much on skin color rather than the product we make and sell?  Are we paying the price for filling our HR departments with social justice warriors?

The country will get more and more divided and angry.  As for me, “Diet Dr. Pepper” based in Waco, Texas tastes a lot better all of a sudden.

Happy # 80 Ron Hunt

We remember Ronald Kenneth Hunt who was born in St. Louis on this day in 1941.

Ron Hunt broke in with the Mets in 1963.  He hit .272 with 10 HR and was # 2 in the Rookie of the Year vote behind Pete Rose.  He also hit .303 in 1965 and .288 in 1966.  However, nobody remembers him for that or his .273 average or 1,479 hits over 12 seasons.  

We remember Ron Hunt because he got hit by a pitch 243 times.   in 1971, he got hit 50 times with Montreal.    The next two guys on that list are Don Baylor (35) and Craig Biggio (34).

As a consequence, Hunt retired with a .368 on-base-pct.   

How did he do it?   I don't know but he was very effective when you really needed a runner on base.

Could we come together like we did 40 years ago?

Back in 1980, many of us spent President Washington’s birthday watching an Olympic hockey game.  It went into history books as the “Miracle on Ice.”   They even made a movie out of that day when the U.S. beat the mighty USSR, 4-3.

As you may remember, we were in the middle of various crises, abroad and at home.  

First, the USSR had just invaded Afghanistan and was pushing its weight around in Nicaragua and paying for Cuban troops in Africa.

Second, Iran had kidnapped U.S. diplomats and mocking President Carter every day.

It seemed like no one feared the U.S. The bad buys certainly didn’t.  

Third, the U.S. economy was struggling, from long gas lines to inflation to stagflation.

In the middle of all this, a bunch of young Americans gave us the time of our lives.  It was the first hockey game that I ever paid attention to!

The U.S. beat the old USSR in the Olympic semifinals to move on to the gold game. What a great game.  In fact, listening to Al Michaels of ABC call the last minute of that game was unbelievable.  

Here is the story of that day:

“In one of the most dramatic upsets in Olympic history, the underdog U.S. hockey team, made up of college players, defeats the four-time defending gold-medal winning Soviet team at the XIII Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid, New York. The Soviet squad, previously regarded as the finest in the world, fell to the youthful American team 4-3 before a frenzied crowd of 10,000 spectators. Two days later, the Americans defeated Finland 4-2 to clinch the hockey gold.”

It gave us the lift that we all needed back then!  Again, what a game and how timely that it happened on George Washington’s birthday.

Looking back at that day, could that happen today?  We hear of schools dropping Washington’s name.  Would people today complain that it was an all-white team projecting white supremacy?  

I hope that I’m wrong.  I was there cheering those young men that day in 1980.  I had disagreements with people back then but no one was cheering against the country.  On the contrary, this hockey game brought the nation together.

Could that happen today?  I hope so, but 20-something folks back in 1980 had a more positive view of their country than the ones that I see on TV or streets today.  We had disagreement but we were all waving the U.S. flag on hoping for a victory on Washington’s birthday.

Happy # 71 Julius Erving

We say happy birthday to Julius Erving, one of the greatest NBA players ever.  

In 5 ABA seasons, he won three scoring titles, three MVP Awards and two championships.   He also won the NBA MVP in 1981 and led Philadelphia to a championship in 1983.

He scored 30,026 points in an amazing career!

I remember him with the 76'ers and all of those amazing moves on the court.

11 Central Time will never the the same without Rush

Like many of you, I was shocked to hear about Rush Limbaugh’s death.  By coincidence, I had just tuned in they announced that his wife would say something.  For a second, I thought that she had news of Rush undergoing some special treatment.  Then she told us the sad news that many of us feared because our favorite host had been gone so much lately.

Back in the fall of 1990, I was working on several projects down in Ciudad Juarez on the other side of the border from El Paso, Texas.  My work required me to fly to El Paso on Tuesday mornings and spend a couple of days in Ciudad Juarez.  My plane from Dallas landed around 9:45 local time and then I rented a car for the drive across the border.

A few minutes getting in my car, Rush would come on the air and I loved the show.  It was so different from anything on the radio those days. Later, I found Rush on Dallas radio and I’ve been listening ever since.   He’s been #1 in Dallas since 1992 when he went on WBAP.

Everyone is talking about his passing.  I won’t waste my time with the trash coming out of the left.  It’s awful and unproductive to focus on people who hate that much.    What good comes from that?  No good, which is why many of them to have to hate just to get noticed.  

For me, Rush’s success was because he was so genuine, believed what he was saying and loved the U.S. and what it stood for.   I related to it every second that I had the good fortune of listening to his monologue or those wonderful parodies from Paul Shanklin.   I guess that my favorite is still the one about Sharpton and Jackson.

How much will we miss Rush every day talking about politics and everything else?  I will miss him a lot, and 25 million will too.  

11 a.m. weekdays will never be the same.

Happy # 94 Sidney Poitier

We say happy birthday to Sidney Poitier, a great actor of the 20th century.   He was born in Miami on this day in 1927.

Portier was in some of the greatest movies of the last 50 years, as we see in this biography:   
By the end of 1949, he was having to choose between leading roles on stage and an offer to work for Darryl F. Zanuck in the film No Way Out (1950). 
Poitier's performance as a doctor treating a white bigot got him plenty of notice and led to more roles, each considerably more interesting and prominent than most African American actors of the time were getting. 
Nevertheless, the roles were still less interesting and prominent than those white actors routinely obtained. 
But seven years later, after turning down several projects he considered demeaning, Poitier got a number of roles that catapulted him into a category rarely if ever achieved by an African American man of that time, that of starring leading man. 
One of the films, The Defiant Ones (1958), gave Poitier his first Academy Award nomination as Best Actor. Five years later, he won the Oscar for Lilies of the Field (1963), the first African American to win for a leading role. Poitier maintained activity on stage, on screen, and in the burgeoning Civil Rights movement. 
His roles in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967) and To Sir, with Love (1967) were for their time landmarks in the breaking down of social barriers between African Americans and whites, and Poitier's talent, conscience, integrity, and inherent likability placed him on equal footing with the white stars of the day. 
He took on directing and producing chores in the Seventies, achieving success in both arenas. Although he has reduced the frequency of his roles in recent years, he remains one of the most respected and beloved figures in American cinema of the twentieth century.
We wish him a lot more birthdays!

Smokey Robinson was born in Detroit back in 1940.

He recorded several hits with The Miracles and later as a solo artist.

He wrote The Temptations' "My girl" and The Beatles recorded "You really got a hold on me"!

Robinson was a vital force in "The Motown Sound" that dominated the pop charts for such a long time.

What's my favorite Smokey tune? It's gotta be "More love".

Ask former President Obama about Chicago and Lincoln

My friend in Chicago called to inquire about our electricity issues.  I guess that everybody is talking about Texans freezing at home.  The good news is that most of us are okay now.   He added that Chicago is now looking at reviewing a few school names starting with favorite son Lincoln.  You guessed it:  white supremacy!

It left me a bit surprised because no one is asking former President Obama about President Lincoln.  As I recall, then-senator Obama announced his presidential campaign in Springfield, Illinois.  Guess who is buried in Springfield?

As you probably remember, president-elect Obama took a train to Washington D.C.  Guess whose route he followed?  Let me remind you about that day:   

Barack Obama’s arrival in Washington by train today harkens back to the inaugural White House trip of the former President who is Obama’s political idol: Abraham Lincoln. In 1861, our 16th President rode the rails through New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania en route to the capital.

So Lincoln was Obama’s political idol?   Let me say a couple of words:

First, It’s wonderful that our first African American President would admire the Great Emancipator.  It makes sense.

Second, what does canceling Lincoln say about the state of the Left?  It tells me that many in the Left don’t know about their country or don’t care about the nation that provides them the freedom to be stupid.

It’s time to put a question to President Obama about this issue.  After all, his city wants to cancel his political idol.

Democrats talking Trump parents talking schools

During the CNN town hall, Joe Biden answered a question by saying that he was tired of talking about President Trump.   

Maybe he is, but his fellow Democrats can’t stop talking about the guy living in Florida.   From Georgia to New York, there are many investigations opening.   The New York Times wants more investigations, too.   A House Democrat wants to use the KKK law from 1871 for intimidation and incitement of Capitol riot.

As the Democrats obsess with President Trump, parents from coast to coast are sending the political class a different message:  Open the schools or else.   This is from David Catron:    

In most red states, public schools opened up last fall for full time in-person instruction or some hybrid of in-person and distance learning. The blue states have, however, been considerably more dilatory about reopening. These states are, of course, governed by Democrats who are bought and paid for by the teachers unions. During the most recent election cycle, for example, the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) contributed a combined total of $43.6 million to Democrats and outside spending groups that support them. In the reopening debate, money talks and science walks. Ask California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

By the way, wonder if these Democrat politicians even send their kids to public schools?   We remember that President Clinton and President Obama did not.

So the blue vs red divide keeps widening.  On one hand, the “blues” are talking Trump “All Day and All of the Night” to quote the Kinks.  On the other hand, the “reds” want the teachers’ union to to care about the kids and to get back to work.  It’s hard to believe that those two groups are living in the same country.

And the media?  They are pitching softballs at Biden and avoiding difficult questions.  They can’t let go of Trump either.

And the public gets more frustrated because no one seems to care about them.  I guess that this is how civil wars happen, as an old teacher told me over the phone yesterday.

Happy # 72 John Mayberry

Image result for john mayberry baseball images

We say happy birthday to John Mayberry who was born in Detroit on this day in 1949.

Mayberry broke with the Astros in 1968 but did not get to play every day until he became Kansas City's first baseman in 1972.     

After that, John was one of the top power hitters in the AL with KC and Toronto:   .261 average, .360 on base pct, 255 HR and 881 RBI in 1,670 games.

Mayberry's best season was 1975:   .291, 36 HR, 106 RBI and second in the AL MVP to Fred Lynn.
