Hard to follow what the teacher's union is thinking


We just learned that Mexico has revised its COVID deaths figures upward.  In other words, 310,000 according to a BBC story. 

For comparison, the U.S. has recorded 549,000 deaths with a population of 330 million. Mexico is at 310,000 with a population of 130 million.

The new report from Mexico puts Joe Biden’s decision to let thousands walk in from Mexico in a different light. What were they thinking at the White House? The answer is that it was all about reversing Trump’s decisions.

In this context of revised COVID numbers from south of the border, we learned that San Diego teachers will give the migrant kids in-person training but still force their regular students to attend on-line courses.  This is one of those stories that you have to read three times to believe:   

"We have 130,000 kids who haven't been allowed in a classroom for over a year in the San Diego Unified School District. It's great that there's in-person learning for those unaccompanied minors from Central America, but I wish every child in San Diego County was allowed the same opportunity for in-person teaching," San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond told Fox News.  

"The system is broken when San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person, but the 100k students of taxpaying families at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning in Zoom school," Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent, told Fox News in an email. 

How in the world do you explain that?  I would argue that the kids in San Diego are less likely to be a COVID threat than some who came from high-risk areas, like the aforementioned Mexico situation.

Yes, I understand that most of these arrivals are from Central America.  Nevertheless, they walked or rode through Mexico.  It's not clear to me that criminal elements provide masks, hand sanitizer or keep them in a safe distance.  

How do you explain this?  You can't but this is what happens when you send money to public teachers without forcing to work for their salary.

Happy # 87 Shirley Jones

We say happy birthday to Shirley Jones who was born in Pennsylvania on this day in 1934.   

She appeared in lots of films, from "Oklahoma" to "The music man".    


I guess that most of us remember her as the mom in "The Partridge Family".

Happy # 86 Herb Alpert

We say happy birthday to Herb Alpert, who was born in Los Angeles on this day in 1935.

In the early 1960's, Herb Alpert hit the charts with The Tijuana Brass.  His career included number one hits & many albums that charted on Billboard. They also won 8 Grammy's and sold 70 million albums around the world.

Alpert is also the only artist to hit # 1 with an instrumental "Rise" in 1979 and as a vocalist with “This guy's in love with you" in 1968.

Not bad for a guy whose first hit was "The lonely bull"!

COVID news from Mexico plus Rep Cuellar and President Reagan 1981

COVID news from Mexico plus Rep Cuellar and President Reagan 1981 03/30 by Silvio Canto Jr | Politics

Mexico COVID figures updated in the wrong direction as more people come in.....Senator Romney selected as a 'Profile in Courage' but what about Representative Cuellar from South Texas.......Democrats once again can't move a gun control law...................President Reagan shot on this day in 1981......

Will Representative Cuellar get the Profile in Courage award too?

We've heard that Senator Mitt Romney will receive "The profile in courage" award for voting to impeach President Trump.  Yes, the left loves him now after trashing the rich businessman who tied the dog on the family car.   

My suggestion to the JFK Library Foundation is to look to South Texas for a man saying a lot of courageous things.  

This is from an interview with CBS News:    

"While journalists have been blocked from accessing the sites themselves, Cuellar provided to CBS News photos from a Border Patrol facility in Donna, Texas, some of which show children with foil blankets waiting to be processed. 

Other images from the Texas Democrat show families under a bridge in McAllen, Texas, at a temporary processing site as they wait to get into a holding facility. More photos show scores of young girls who Cuellar said have been held at the border facility for days, far longer than the legal limit of 72 hours that border officials have to turn over unaccompanied minors to the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is responsible for housing the children."

Let me translate:   In your face Joe Biden!

Cuellar apparently warned the Biden transition team to avoid quick changes on the border.  He has been screaming about the mess down on the border.

I hope that Democrats are listening to Representative Henry Cuellar.  He is a true "profile in courage" for standing up to his President and party message.

Happy # 76 Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton is one of the best "rock guitarists" ever!    He was born on this day in 1945.

Clapton's career goes back to The Yardbirds, Cream, and his own solo work.

My favorite Clapton guitar performance is "White Room" recorded by Cream, i.e. Clapton, Ginger Baker & Jack Bruce. 

According to Songfacts, Eric Clapton used a Wah-Wah pedal on his guitar.  It was great.

Who knew that our kids grew up watching such awful films?


Well, you learn something every day.  I just learned that DumboPeter Pan, and Cinderella are sending our kids bad messages.   

This is from Disney:   

Dumbo, Peter Pan, The Aristocats, Swiss Family Robinson, Lady and the Tramp and The Jungle Book are not accessible through kids’ profiles with the parental controls switched on. Disney has not removed the affected titles from its streaming platform, and users can still access the films through an adult profile. Each one starts with the content advisory that Disney added last fall.

“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the content advisory reads. “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove the content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”

There's more.  I guess Cinderella is bad too, according to a theater company in Minnesota.  They say that the cast is too white.  So are they going to shut down Roots because the cast is too black?  or Amistad because there is no diversity in the ship?

When is this madness going to stop?

I think that what bothers the "wokes" is that Dumbo was a self-starter and did not rely on government to fly.  As for Peter Pan, maybe the real issue is that the character never grew up or applied for Social Security.  The Robinson Family must drive the "wokes" crazy especially since there is a dad and mom in the story.  The Aristocats drive them crazy because there was no death tax when the rich lady died.  The Lady and the Tramp is just too much because she is a lady rather than a lesbian.

When is this madness going to stop?  I hope that soon because I plan to show our new grandson these movies, especially Dumbo.

This is not immigration or political asylum


Our family came here from Cuba back in 1964.  We came here legally and because of the generosity of the American people.  They offered us an opportunity to come here and start a new life.  Last, but not least, we came to the U.S. in an orderly fashion.

Sorry, but that's not what we are watching at the U.S.-Mexico border.  What we see there is chaos brought to you by a U.S. president who did not have the backbone to tell the immigration activists to shut up.

I loved what Senator Collins said a few days ago:

Border Patrol is overwhelmed, overworked, & discouraged by new policies. Agents took us through a dangerous path to the Rio Grande where we could hear the Cartel members taunting us across the river. Human trafficking, child abuse, & drug smuggling are rampant. This is a crisis.

Yes it's a crisis.  Worse than that, we've created a brand new business for criminal elements to exploit.  Back to Senator Collins:

Mexican cartels control who crosses the border. A young mother from Guatemala, sitting on an aluminum blanket with her 1-year-old, told me she paid smugglers $6,000.

I guess everybody knows what's going on except The White House and the reporters who would rather ask him about filibuster.  It is incredible that President Biden did not get a single question about how criminal elements are making money out of all of this.

Biden press conference: Did they want an audience?


Do you remember the last time that a president held a noon central press conference?  It happens, but most presidents do it on prime time to connect with a large audience.   
 
Why did the White House put the President Biden in at 10 a.m. Los Angeles time?  Or at noon in Dallas, when most people were working or driving to lunch?
 
I would love to see audience figures.  My guess is that the White House went out of its way to keep President Biden from viewers.  Didn't they do the same thing during the campaign?
 
My second point is about the media and the selections of correspondents called.  Peter Doocy of Fox News did not get a question, but CNN and PBS did.  Have you done a ratings comparison?   
 
President Biden claimed that Republican voters support him.  Really?  It's amazing that no one in the press challenged the president on that.  He is wrong or selectively relying on polling data.  Again, no challenges.
 
Another Democrat in the White House and another press corps working on his behalf.   And another poll that the public distrusts the media.  Wonder why?

Megan the MVP of victimhood

The Biden White House (or maybe Biden-Harris) continued its "unity" campaign by inviting the divisive Megan Rapinoe.   Wonder if she took a knee when she saw all of those flags?   

As you may remember, Megan is on the US Soccer team and a super star on the LGBT victim squad.

Megan is apparently pushing the "equal pay" message again.  Frankly, I don't watch soccer but many of my Latin American friends do.  Let me tell you that not one has rushed home to watch a women's soccer game, unless their daughter was playing.  

I'm not knocking the ladies' talents but just looking at the fact that nobody follows the sport.   The average attendance is not enough:   12,833.

Maybe some day women's soccer will match the NFL or MLB or NBA or NHL.  Or even college sports.

At the moment, women's soccer is all about watching talented US ladies beating the crap out of over-matched international teams.  Remember the US beating Thailand 13-0 in a world tournament?  

Good luck to the ladies.  However, they are getting what they've earned based on the lack of interest in their game.

My memo to Megan is to sell lots of tickets and then you'll get a contract that reflects your value rather than your mindless playing of the victim card.

Shame on President Biden for talking unity standing next to this woman or whatever it is.

Happy # 59 to Kevin Seitzer

Happy birthday to Kevin Seitzer.   He was born on this day in Springfield, MO., in 1962.

Kevin broke with the Royals in 1986 and hit .323 with 207 hits in 1987.    He was a very consistent hitter and played first and third base very well.

He retired after 12 seasons:   .295 average, 1,557 hits and a couple of All Star selections.

Happy # 77 Diana Ross




We remember Diana Ross who was born in Detroit on this day in 1944.

Question: Is that possible? I guess that time really does fly by!

We have followed Diana Ross from The Supremes to her solo career.

The Supremes had a bunch of # 1 singles.   In the late 1960's, they were one of the most consistent hit makers along with
The Beatles

She is a great performer and artist!

When you lose the Dallas Morning News...


The Dallas Morning News once supported Republicans, like Gov. Mitt Romney in 2002, and of course President George W. Bush, President George Bush and President Ronald Reagan.  In 2016, it went for Hillary Clinton, and then in 2018 for Beto O'Rourke.    
 
On Wednesday morning, its editorial page addressed the border issue this way:    
 
President Joe Biden’s administration, which promised a more humane and responsible immigration policy, seems to have been caught flat-footed by the massive surge of migrants from Central America to the United States, and has made a bad situation worse by issuing messages that are as clear as mud.
 
Administration officials have spent the last few days trying to send the belated message that the border is closed. But for weeks, those officials also emphasized that they were reversing the Trump administration’s border policies and would be more welcoming.
 
No wonder the border is in crisis. When the message is so muddled, people who are desperate to flee dangerous situations at home hold out hope that they will be allowed to enter if they simply show up at the border. 
 
And the administration can’t say it didn’t know this was coming. In promising to roll back Trump’s immigration policies, Biden had asked for time to implement “guardrails” to avoid winding up with “2 million people on our border.”
 
Wonder if the editorial board checked with President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador of Mexico?   He is basically saying the same thing:
 

'Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants'

I don't know where this is going to end but I wouldn't want to be a Democrat running in a competitive district in 2022.   High gasoline prices and chaos on the border is not a good platform.

Happy # 55 Tom Glavine

We say happy birthday to Tom Glavine.    He was born in Concord, Massachusetts on this day in 1966.

Tom broke with the Braves in 1987 and lost 17 games in 1988.   However, his career turned around in 1989 (14-8 & 3.68 ERA).    He became one of the best pitchers in baseball in the 1990's and beyond.

Tom retired with 305 wins, 244 with Atlanta and the rest with the New York Mets.   He was 14-16 in the post season but did pitch very well in the World Series (4-3 with a 2.16 ERA).

Glavine was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2014.

"Houdini" with Tony Curtis & Janet Leigh is a good movie


A few days ago, the retro channel showed "Houdini", a 1953 film with Tony Curtis & Janet Leigh.   It is the story of the famous Harry Houdini and based on the 1928 book "Houdini" by Harold Kellock.

I found this movie to be very entertaining.   Curtis & Leigh make a great pair.

Roberta jets off to Mexico


The Biden administration is sending Roberta Jacobson, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico and now Biden "border czar," to visit Mexico.  I guess that the delegation will talk about the border “challenge.”   

Remember how well Roberta's last venture turned out?  She negotiated the reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba.  We remember that episode as Obama and Raul doing the wave at the baseball game, but nothing changed in Cuba. Coddling dictators never works! 
 
And neither does failure to read other foreign leaders. 
 
But here we are, and Ambassador Jacobson is going down to Mexico to talk border, according to news reports.   
 
Wonder what that conversation will be?  
 
Let's imagine Ambassador Jacobson and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez-Obrador talking over a couple of Topo Chicos:
 
Jacobson:  As you know, Señor Presidente, we need your help at the border.
 
Lopez-Obrador:   You opened the border, not us.  We made a deal with President Trump and it was working well for the U.S. and Mexico.
 
Jacobson:  I know, Señor Presidente.  So we need to reestablish "The remain in Mexico" program but let's give it a different name so it does not sound like the Trump program.
 
Lopez-Obrador:   How can I help you?  You opened the border and people accepted your invitation.  And now you want me to bail out your president.
 
Jacobson:  You are right, Señor Presidente.  But we really need your help so we can stop this “challenge” on the border.  It’s going to kill us in 2022.
 
Lopez-Obrador:   What are you going to do for Mexico?   My people are furious that you've turned Mexico into a highway to the north.  I’ve got my own midterm elections in 2021.
 
After the meeting, Ambassador Jacobson will fly to Washington and tell President Biden that the Mexican president is a very angry man.  The president will ask Vice President Harris to call President Lopez-Obrador.  
 
And so the border goes.  This is what happens when Trump Derangement Syndrome drives your foreign policy and you put a neighbor in a bad situation.

Me racist, you racist, we racist


The bad news is that the cancel culture is doing too much cancelling.  The good news is that this has all the makings of a circular firing squad story.   At least the bullets are aimed at each other.

The Teen Vogue story is interesting and indicative of just how crazy this whole thing is:   

Teen Vogue’s almost-editor Alexi McCammond was forced to resign before she even started because of racist tweets she posted years ago. It was cancel culture at its best --— or perhaps, most damaging. McCammond was a writer for the left-leaning Axios website, but that didn’t save her from the rage of the mob.     

One of her biggest critics at Teen Vogue, senior social media manager Christine Davitt, posted a letter on March 8 on Instagram from Teen Vogue staff expressing concern to Conde Nast management about the hiring of McCammond, “in light of her past racist and homophobic tweets.” “So proud of my @teenvogue colleagues. The work continues…” Davitt wrote in a caption.   

But people who live in glass houses… etc. Davitt has her own problematic tweeting in the past.......

Yes, don't attack what someone tweeted before you check your own archives. 

Perhaps all this will have a happy ending.

First, so many lefties will delete their tweets that Jack Dorsey will bring President Trump to build up his business.  Wouldn’t that be sweet justice?

Second, the cancel culture is now being mocked by Bill Maher and Andrew Sullivan.   Wonder if Sullivan and Maher have checked their tweets?

So maybe the culture cancel will cancel itself out.  Let's hope so.

The two-song band

Like the band that can only play two songs, the Democrats are on stage.  Remember the band from The Blues Brothers' hilarious film?  Jake and Alwood played "Rawhide" and "Stand by Your Man" because that's all they knew to please a country audience.

Well, the Democrats know two songs to please the hysterical left.  First, you are a racist.  Second, it's all Trump's fault.  Last, but not least, sometimes they do a medley and give you both.

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the lead vocalist of the border band, took the microphone on Sunday:    

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas has claimed that the number of people looking to enter the U.S. at the southern border could be the highest in 20 years, but in an interview with "Fox News Sunday" he claimed that this is because of the Trump administration's actions, not policy changes that took place in the early days of President Biden's administration.   Biden has scrapped a number of Trump's policies which included having asylum seekers remain in Mexico instead of staying in the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be heard. Mayorkas denied that Biden's changes have encouraged the current migrant surge.

What's new?  On one hand, the Secretary said that the number of people entering was at a 20-year high.   Of course, it's all Trump's Wanna make a bet?  Mayorkas will be toxic very soon, the scapegoat for this disastrous policy.

On this one, Biden broke it.  Worse than that, they have no idea of how to fix it.

The media are pushing narratives rather than facts

Years ago, I remember watching someone say on TV that too many newsrooms write the headline and then tell the reporters to suit the facts to it.  I don't know how rampant that is, but the Atlanta shootings make me wonder.

We were told that a white man (who else?) shot a bunch of Asians.  Why?  I guess because he hates Asians.  Some in the media ran with that story until we learned a few facts about the alleged shooter.  In other words, the facts did not prove the headline!

Andrew Sullivan has a point:

We have yet to find any credible evidence of anti-Asian hatred or bigotry in this man's history.  Maybe we will.  We can't rule it out.  But we do know that his roommates say they once asked him if he picked the spas for sex because the women were Asian.  And they say he denied it, saying he thought those spas were just the safest way to have quick sex.  That needs to be checked out more.  But the only piece of evidence about possible anti-Asian bias points away, not toward it.

Who knows why he did it?  Nobody knows, and we may never know.  It sounds to me as though the man has mental issues rather than vices of "white supremacy."

Nevertheless, some in the media just couldn't wait to pin another one "white supremacy," which is nothing but another way of keeping President Trump in the news.  They can't get over talking about 45, even if means creating narratives that have nothing to do with the truth.  The man in Mar-a-Lago is still living rent-free in their heads!

Diversity?  Yes. our newsrooms need lots of it.  They need people who are not "woke" or trying to "outwoke" the other newsroom.

Happy # 82 Tommy Davis



Related image
We remember Tommy Davis who was born in Brooklyn, NY, on this day in 1939.

Davis broke with the LA Dodgers in 1959 and became a regular in 1961.  He won back-to-back batting titles in 1962-63 and seemed headed for The Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, Davis had some bad injuries and never regained his early form.   

In 1973, Davis joined the Orioles and became one of the first veterans to get playing time as a designated hitter.   He hit .291 over 4 seasons with Baltimore and played in a couple of ALCS. 

Tommy was a great hitter despite all of the injuries that limited his career:  .294 average, 2,121 hits and 1,052 RBI in 1,999 games.     

My guess is that he would have a few more battling titles and 3,000 hits!

Biden should have listened to Cuellar


Representative Henry Cuellar's district is right on the border.  He can literally touch Mexico.  Like so many who've grown up down there, Rep. Cuellar understands the area.  He knows that many good people cross over to work and shop.  He also knows that there are criminal elements because he can hear the firefights between the Mexican Army and cartels frequently.

Representative Cuellar apparently warned the Biden administration about opening the border.   He said something that sounds a bit like Trump:

You can’t say ‘don’t come now, come later.’ That’s a bad message. It’s got to be clear and concise. Don’t come in here illegally. That should be the message....”

Don't come here illegally.   Wow.  What an idea!  Have we heard that before?  Gee, I remember when they called you a racist for saying stuff like that.

Let me add this.  Representative Cuellar is a moderate Democrat.  The "wokes" gave him a primary challenge in 2020 but he made it.  Cuellar has to know that his constituents are not happy with this madness on the border.  I hope that Democrats are hearing that.
