Under the Fedora-- Conventional wisdom and boobs

In the MSM this week it’s been all about Hillary Clinton and her inevitable nomination and election to the presidency.  Didn’t we see this movie five years ago?
Don’t count out Joe Biden for a moment.  Goofball image (I think that’s deliberate) not withstanding he served in the Senate for 36 years.  I suspect he has more to do with the Senate “no budget” move and the Obamacare passage than people realize.
Anyone who believes conventional wisdom unquestionably must be all excited to see the Patriots play Green Bay in this week’s Superbowl.

Speaking of football the debate on the game continues, Bernard Pollard has this to say about the future of the game as things are done to make it safer:
“Thirty years from now, I don’t think it will be in existence,” Pollard told “I could be wrong. It’s just my opinion, but I think with the direction things are going — where [NFL rules makers] want to lighten up, and they’re throwing flags and everything else — there’s going to come a point where fans are going to get fed up with it.”
The pro-bowl was this week, once a year you have a game that is pretty much a flag football game without the flags in Hawaii to celebrate the best players of the year just before or just after the Super Bowl.
I’m sure a lot of people watched as the last game of the year when it comes on after or as the only game of the week before. But ask yourself this:  If every game was like that one would you pay to see it?  Would you buy an NFL package?  Would you go to the bar to watch it?
As these changes continue the viewers of the NFL will drift elsewhere, I suspect to the Legends (read Lingerie) football league.  Did you know there was such a thing with twelve teams in a national league nationwide?  If fans can’t have big hits they’ll just have to settle for big…..emha well….moving on….
Did you know I have a co-blogger on my site?  I met Roxeanne De Luca in Boston the night of Scott Brown’s victory party back in 2010.  She is a brilliant young lady who has become a friend.  If I had a daughter I wish it would be her and if my sons were older, she is who I’d want them to end up with.
The author of this article, Allison Pearson, talks a lot about the porn culture and the ready access to a “virtual world” (online, texting, etc.). But she misses the point.   We could have thrown mobile phones at women in the 1860s, but no man would have dared to ask a lady to perform fellatio on him, because her dad would shoot him.  As in, dual to the death, all members of her family lined up to protest the treatment of their sister.  (I will note that some very backwards countries shoot the wronged woman, not the offending man.)
This is a sexual revolution issue.  Once we started saying that promiscuity is empowering, that sexual experimentation is fun for women, that pregnancy is the only obstacle a woman faces in intimate acts, we gave young men license to treat young women like unpaid prostitutes.  (Actually, worse – a man might understand if a prostitute said that she was off-duty for the night.)

She only posts maybe once or twice a week but she’s a gem.  I’m proud to have her here.
As the Media continues to push gun control/confiscation/etcetcetc At PJ media Vodkapundit reprints a petition to eliminate armed guards around the president.  If Gun Free Zones are sufficient to protect our children they should be good enough for the politicians:
What’s the Biblical quote:  “No servant is greater than the master?”  Then again maybe today’s public servants have a different view of who serves who.

Of course a lot of definitions can be flexible for example words like “Newsworthy”  for example when one is a US senator and there is word about an FBI investigation concerning say, Underage Dominican Hookers and you’re scheduled to be on a national TV show.  You could cancel but if you can’t or won’t you may consider a strategy of deny, Deny DENY!
I suspect this was the strategy of Senator Robert Menendez as he appeared on ABC’s THIS WEEK two days after news of the FBI investigation of a sexual scandal involving underage Dominican Hookers broke.
Alas for the Senator ABC News’ Martha  Raddatz totally foiled that strategy by cleverly choosing to refuse to ask a single question on the subject
If Martha Raddatz, who we were all assured was an unbiased and professional journalist when questions arose before the vice-presidential debate last year, doesn’t find a scandal involving underage hookers and a US senator newsworthy when it involves a democrat why would any member of the party of Jackson feel restrained in anything?
Allen West is now working for PJ media doing a feature called Next Generation :  This week talked about women in combat saying
This mission of the United States Military is to fight and win our nations war, fairness is an evaluative criteria.
While the media will ignore his words except to critique it the most significant thing he said was talking about how the enemy can strike anywhere
And as we saw four years ago at Fr. Hood Texas the enemy can strike where our troops should feel most secure their own military installation.  At Fr. Hood a pregnant soldier lost her life.
Ft. Hood WAS an enemy attack, the left likes to pretend otherwise, it doesn’t fit their worldview

As a now syndicated radio talk host this might be a dangerous opinion but I’ve never understood the various commercials for testosterone or for erection pills (yes they have a name, but lets face it that’s what they are.
Let me tell you something.  If a woman doesn’t want you sexually none of this stuff is going to make a difference.   I don’t care what brand of after shave you use, how many pills you pop, how must testosterone you take or how many little blue pills you have stashed in your wallet, none of these things are going to make a woman who doesn’t want you, want you.

Victor Davis Hanson talked about the state of the state of California this week
Also, when you say, “My God, one of every three welfare recipients lives in California,” or “California schools are terrible,” you mean really, “Not in Newport or Carmel. So who cares about Fresno, or Tulare — they might as well be in Alabama for all the times I have been there.”
He continues
Thank God for Mississippi and Alabama, or California schools would test dead last.
Somehow, in just thirty years we created obstacles to public learning that produce results approaching the two-century horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. About half the resources of the California State University system are devoted to remedial schooling for underperforming high school students (well over half who enter take remediation courses; half don’t graduate even in six years; and well over half have sizable financial aid). The point of CSU’s general education requirement is not so much any more to offer broad learning (who is to say what is “general education?”), but rather to enter a sort of race, class, and gender boot camp that allows some time off to become familiar with how the culture and politics of the state should continue.
Hey as long as Mexico remains a bigger basket case, California will remain heaven to those who would cross. 
As Glenn Reynolds says, “They’ll make us all beggars because they are easier to please.”
Well the first doctor who special is over and done as is the episode The Aztecs, it’s available on Netflix and you should watch it if you can.  It has a great message for today explained here

Sun News: Ontario gun owners taking bureaucrats to court

 Originally posted on Sun News
There's another gun fight starting in Ontario.
The Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) is taking the province's chief firearms office (CFO) to court, alleging provincial policing staff are targeting lawful firearms owners by forcing shooters to have a written invitation from gun ranges before they are allowed to transport their restricted firearms in their own vehicles.
They must also be able to show police the invitation when asked, according to a letter from the CFO to gun owners obtained by QMI Agency.
“Ontario’s firearms owners have a rich history of being lawful and trustworthy,” said Tony Bernardo, spokesman for the CSSA.
“They come from all walks of life and many are professional pillars in their communities. The CFO does not have the mandate to make laws based on their own whim and fancy. This is just one more cheap attempt at frustrating sport shooters to the point they will give up their heritage activities."
Under federal law, handgun owners in Canada already need an Authorization To Transport to move their guns anywhere, usually only by vehicle to and from approved ranges.
This latest stipulation for a written invitation was added by the CFO and mailed to gun owners this past week, says the CSSA.

"To all approved restricted shooting ranges in Ontario as a member of good standing of that club or as an invitee of an authorized member of the host club. When transporting firearms by invitation written proof of an invitation by an authorized club member must be provided to the CFO or police upon request,” it reads.
Julie Carmichael, spokeswoman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, declined comment as the matter may soon be before the courts.
"The Firearms Act sets out the requirements with respect to the safe storage and transportation of firearms. We expect that chief firearms officers and their officials will enforce the law appropriately,” she said, adding chief firearms officers are provincial appointees.
Last year, owners of rifles and shot guns were surprised to learn that gun shop owners had been ordered by Ontario's CFO to continue writing down the personal information of all customers who bought long guns, even though the federal registry had been abolished.
The feds eventually had to rewrite the rule, ordering the provincial CFOs to stop issuing the requirement.
The provincial CFO was not available for comment.

The Informed Conservative-- Pro-abortion writer on death of children: "So what?"

Picture Amid the ongoing gun control debate, leftists universally want Americans to believe their only concern is the well-being and safety of our children.
Despite the obvious fallacy of their argument, one can appreciate that at least some actually believe gun-grabbing legislation is a step toward protecting the next generation.
"If it saves only one life," Joe Biden infamously opined, "it makes sense."
While holding that position when the issue is guns, leftists are quick to sing another tune when the topic changes to a tool used to kill countless more children than guns ever could – abortion.
In an utterly despicable article by pro-abortion activist Mary Elizabeth Williams, the callousness with which leftists treat child murder is on full display.
Williams is one of the few pro-choicers who readily admit a fetus is a human life, though she doesn't seem to see a big deal in ending that life before it has a chance to escape the womb.
"So what if abortion ends life?" she asks, admitting she "never wavered for a moment in the belief I was carrying a human life inside of me" during prior pregnancies, though "that doesn't make me one iota less solidly pro-choice."
Despite sharing the belief that unborn children constitute human life, she contends conservatives who use that argument against abortion are engaging in "sneaky, dirty tricks."
Williams seems to feel despite her own opinion – or perhaps because of it – certain lives deserve to be extinguished to benefit certain other lives.
"All life is not equal," she argues, explaining pregnant women responsible for their condition should enjoy more rights than the innocent children they carry.
She goes on to describe women as the "boss" in relation to their offspring and encouraged her fellow leftists to avoid the "semantic lines in the sand" associated with arguments over when a fetus becomes a human life.
That argument is unimportant, she argues, because in certain situations an unborn baby is simply "a life worth sacrificing."
Anyone – especially a mother – who considers a child's death acceptable is engaging in a line of reasoning I cannot even fathom.
Millions upon millions of nameless Americans have had their lives legally snuffed out in the more than 40 years since the case of Roe V. Wade was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
As predicted, Williams' column shows the inevitable effect of such decisions as a significant portion of this nation's citizens have absolutely no respect whatsoever for the sanctity of life.
An environment of selfishness and utter disregard for others, not guns or any other tool targeted by the left, are responsible for the culture of violence and death in which we currently live.

Stan Musial died Saturday. 
Youngsters might not recognize the name although their spell checkers will.  Musial never dated movie stars, he wasn’t known for fights with the press, brawls in bars, or bad behavior of any time.  He was married for 72 years to the same woman who died last May and was never known to mistreat anyone expect opposing pitchers whose offering he deposited all over the field or over the fence from 1940 till 1962.
Musial won 3 MVP and was runner up 4 times.  Think of that a second, for one third of his career it was the consensus that he was the best or second best at what he did in the league.
That’s simply incredible.
There have been many tributes to Stan Musial over the last few days, but I think the greatest tribute to him was paid last year by Albert Pujois.
When he was signed by the Angels they put up promotional signs referring to him as El Hombre.  Given his numbers in 11 years he averaged 40 HR & 121 RBI a season while hitting .328. certainly number that would justify being called “El Hombre”, “The Man” but he would have none of it.
"I still have the same respect for him as I had, not just for what he's done in baseball but for what he did for his country. That's something you have to appreciate."
That really says it all doesn’t it?  BTW the Angels took down the billboards.
Best description of Stan Musial I ever read came from Bill James when declaring him the best left fielder of all time over Ted Williams :
...if I had to choose between the two of them, I’d take Musial in left field, Musial on the basepaths, Musial in the clubhouse and Williams only with the wood in his hand.  And Stan Musial could hit a little, too.

Someone not thinking of death these days is Andrew Cuomo.  His latest abortion proposals bid to secure the Democrat left for 2016 are so extreme it produced this exchange between Elizabeth (The Anchoress) and her husband:
“he wants to be president. He is pandering to Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List because there is gold in them thar purses.”
My husband was appalled to ponder it: “a lot more than 30 pieces of silver,” he said, and it’s not going to get him to heaven.”
“Yeah, well, he’s not seeking heaven, just now,” I shrugged. “He’s seeking the White House, and power.”
Nobody is promised tomorrow, Andrew Cuomo might consider that, if he actually believed.  But I don’t’ think he does.
 I have given no pixels at all to Steubenville OH Rape case that has the left and the occupods in an uproar.  Lee Stranahan has and can tell you Everything you know about the case is wrong:
Among the widely reported and false claims:
  • Steubenville is so corrupt that no justice is possible.
  • There has been a massive cover-up in the case.
  • The victim was drugged, put in a car trunk to bring her to a series of parties, urinated on, and left for dead in a field.
  • That there a number of witnesses to the assaults who have not come forward.
  • The school’s football coaches were involved in the night’s activities.
  • That football players were given easy or preferential treatment in this case.
  • No media was covering the case except for one blogger until Anonymous got involved.
  • That no justice would happen in this case were it not for the intervention of Anonymous.
  • The infamous video of Michael Nodianos joking has nothing to do with the legal case.
To reiterate, those claims are rumors that are unsupported by evidence and yet if you click on any link to a story about the case, you’ll find any number of in whichever story you read.
Lee positively owns this story and that ownership is making a lot of people angry, must mess with the approved narrative don’t you know .
The Atlanta Falcons Tony Gonzalez moved one step closer to being  the Ernie Banks of Football.  A well-loved Hall of Fame player who never made it to the big game.It’s quite possible Goonzalez is the best Tight End to ever play the game but he has some interesting opinions concerning marriage, (via Wikipedia)
Gonzalez had a commitment ceremony in July 2007 with his girlfriend, October, and considers himself married.
Considers himself married?  Really?  Well why not?  If we can redefine marriage one way why shouldn’t we redefine it any way anybody wants it to be?  After all it’s not like marriage is anything important.
And if you object you are a racist, bigot sexist homophobe.
People are laughing at this story about a guy at Verizon who outsourced his own job for a 1/5 of the price and pocketed the difference that he was being paid.
Two thoughts:  If Verizon was satisfied with the work and the price they were paying for it, what do they have to complain about?
And frankly how is this any different than a contractor hiring a subcontractor to do a job?
Chip Jones at Conservative Report Online has a hell of a question concerning Benghazi:

You see, the Kalashnikov rifle chambers a 7.62 mm round. The US M-4 rifle chambers a 5.56 mm round. What is widely reported and accepted is that at least two of the TDY Green Berets who were assigned by the CIA as ARSO’s (assistant regional safety officers) were badly wounded and were treated for multiple gunshot wounds after they rescued over 20 civilian CIA workers from the compound.
The single question that needs to be asked is: “Were the rounds taken out of the wounded ARSO’s 7.62 mm or 5.56 mm?” And when the answer comes back “5.56 mm”, it opens the door to the proof that the cover up was meant to hide the fact that the Obama administration had been caught once again arming offshore groups that did not have the interests of our country at heart. It would open the door to proof that Benghazi was “Fast and Furious on Steroids.
Considering the MSM’s lack of interest in Fast and Furious it’s going to take an awful lot of steroids to get the MSM’s attention

Covered a GOP forum on Monday with two of the candidates for GOP Chair
 Kirsten Hughes

and Rick Green.

I think these two candidates perfectly encapsulate the question the GOP faces nationally.
If you are a bit sleepy this from NiceDeb will wake you up:
Dr. Jim Garrow, a renowned author and humanitarian, made the shocking claim on his Facebook page, yesterday.
I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.
Garrow noted in the comments that  “the man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes,” prompting this relpy from one of his followers, “if this man is truly a military hero, he had better not be keeping this a secret. Military hero’s (sic) do what’s right, not what’s comfortable for themselves.”
Garrow responded, “have folks forgotten that the word is now out. I believe that the gentleman has done what he should and allowed all of us to sound the alarm.

If this is the slightest bit true it will be very interesting to see the reaction in the ranks.
Jack Mitchel’s book Fireside Chat is becoming more and more relevant
A bit of a cultural thing, when I wanted that Bill James quote from the start of this piece I didn’t search the net.  I remembered reading it and ran upstairs grabbed the book I saw it in, leafed through it until I found it.  I tend to do that an awful lot when writing.  In this internet age/kindle age it must seem a quaint and amusing thing to do.  I’m sure some of the younger set must laugh at it.  Let them.  I’ll take the printed word over the pixel every time.  With the printed word I can say with 100% certainty that what it says on the page today will be the same thing it says on it tomorrow.
You know you are old when you find yourself using the words “the younger set” in a sentence.
Finally there is huge news concerning DaTechGuy on DaRadio.  Last week was my final week on WCRN AM 830.  Starting Saturday at 1 PM my radio show will be Syndicated by Cameo Productions.  The first stations carrying me will be in Massachusetts from the Money Matters Radio Network, a fourth online station will be added Feb 2nd and from there, who knows?
