It's your message, Democrats


(My new American Thinker post)

Yesterday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she does not understand where the lawlessness is coming from.   She was talking about all of those attack on shops in San Francisco.  

Maybe Mrs. Pelosi finally noticed when the mob attacked her favorite places!   

At the same time, the mayor of San Francisco noticed the looting too.   This is the story:   

The mayor’s plan includes a series of initiatives to implement a 180-degree reversal from blind compassion to “tough love.” Outlined in a Medium post, Breed’s proposals take aim at illegal drug sales and restore funding for police with targeted resources dedicated to the low-income Tenderloin neighborhood. The mayor calls for:

Executing an Emergency Intervention Plan in the Tenderloin neighborhood

Securing emergency police funding to ensure we have the resources to combat major safety problems over the next several months

Amending our surveillance ordinance so law enforcement can prevent and interrupt crime in real time — something they’re effectively barred from doing now — to better protect our homes and businesses

Disrupting the illegal street sales of stolen goods that have become a clear public safety issue and are contributing to retail theft

Well, at least the strategy is changing.   Let's hope that it goes beyond talking points.

Why are Democrats suddenly talking about crime?   

The answer is twofold:

First, this level of "lawlessness," as the Speaker would say, is driving taxpayers away.  My guess is that it keeps a lot of people from driving downtown for dinner on a Saturday.   I was in Maryland last summer and asked about Little Italy, a once-charming part of a town there for eating Italian food.  My friend said that it was still there but many people were afraid of going down in this climate atmosphere.   

Second, the violence must be hurting Democrats with African-Americans and Hispanics, or the people who live in those areas, which may be both.  Check out Chicago and the weekend shootings.  It's hard to blame Trump when everyone running the city is a liberal Democrat.     

Memo to Democrats:  Let the police do their job and you will see how quickly the "lawlessness" will disappear.

Happy birthday Pope Francis


We wish Pope Francis a very happy birthday.   He was born in 1936 on this day in Argentina

A couple of days ago, I wrote an article following the "Person of the Year" recognition.

I love Pope Francis' "down to earth" approach.  It's very refreshing.

Happy birthday!

Happy # 83 to Leo "Chico" Cardenas

 
He made it to the majors in 1960 where he got the nickname of “Chico” and “Mr. Automatic” because he was so good at playing shortstop.
 
Cardenas was a 5-time All Star.  He played 9 years with the Cincinnati Reds and 3 with the Minnesota Twins.    He replaced fellow Cuban Zoilo Versalles as the shortstop for the Twins.
 
Overall, he hit .257 over 16 seasons.     Along the way, he hit 20 HR & 81 RBI's in 1966 and 18 HR & 75 RBI's in 1970.   Back then, those were huge power numbers for a shortstop.
 
Cardenas played in the 1961 World Series with the Reds and in the 1969 & 1970 ALCS with the Twins.   He is best remembered as the man who made everything look easy at shortstop.
