"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

Who listens to Lemon?
((My new American Thinker post)
They say "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." It is intended to inspire optimism or crank up a positive attitude. Well, when life gives you a Don Lemon quote, just look the other way or turn off the TV like a lot of viewers do.
Don Lemon recently said:
The primetime host tied the GOP to the threat of "growing extremism" on the Right. He warned journalists to not give a "false equivalence" to both sides, and instead acknowledge Republicans were endangering America.
"We sit around and we talk about these things and we want to give this false equivalence to Democrats and Republicans. That is not where we are right now. Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that. We have to acknowledge that as Americans, we must acknowledge that as journalists because if we don't, we are not doing our jobs," Lemon declared.
Well, everyone is entitled to his opinion. At the same time, is anyone surprised?
First, this is Lemon trying to get a headline. Unfortunately, and I'm guilty of this, we react to his nonsense. We are talking about him, are we not? He probably gets a larger audience when we talk about him.
Second, this is what Lemon has been doing for years. His show is nothing but Trump bashing, which is why most serious Republicans avoided it like a plague.
Turn off the TV, get some real lemons and make some lemonade. You will feel a lot better.

Happy # 82 Joe Torre
Joe was born on this day in Brooklyn in 1940 and made his major league debut with the Milwaukee Braves in 1960.
By 1964, he was an NL star hitting .321 with 20 HR & 109 RBI.
The Braves traded Torre to St Louis after the 1968 season. My guess is that they regretted that move for years.
In 1971, Torre hit .363 with 230 hits & 137 RBI. It was one of the best offensive years of the post-war era. It earned him an MVP and batting title. In 6 years with St Louis, Torre hit .308 with 558 RBI. He was one of the best hitters in the NL.
Torre started out as a catcher in Milwaukee but played most of his career between first and third base.
As a hitter, he retired with a .297 BA, 252 HR, 2,343 hits & 1,185 RBI.
As a manager, he won 2,326 games, 4 World Series titles and 84 post season games.
Joe was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014.
