WEDNESDAY - March  29, 2017
Hello once again from the Headquarters Of Jingoistic Xenophobic Angry White Male Manmade Global Warming Deniers. 
SANCTUARY -  1)  A holy place;  specif., a church,  temple, etc.  2)  a place of refuge or protection
I am sure that not many either in our country or outside, for that matter, consider Los Angeles, CA;   Austin, TX;   Baltimore, MD;  N.Y. City;  Chicago, IL;  or  Phoenix, AZ as a HOLY PLACE.   So that must mean that those locations along with many more cities and counties in the United States who call themselves a SANCTUARY City, County, or State must mean that they are a place of refuge or protection.

And, as I think we can all see,  these locations who identify themselves as a SANCTUARY for Illegal Aliens.... yes that is Illegal Aliens as opposed to Undocumented Immigrants,  must feel as if they are above the federal law and for that matter above their own state and local laws.

Next we hear from all of the proponents of just simply allowing anyone and everyone to enter our country without going through the legal steps that SANCTUARY  CITIES are actually SAFER than those locations who do not subscribe to this idiotic train of thought.  I absolutely do not know where or from whom they are getting their information  but I absolutely challenge ANY of these idiots to show us some proof of their claim.  I think that we can see that all across our country in damn near every state that Illegal Aliens who have a proclivity to commit crime, do so with little regard for United States citizens.  OK, let me get this out of the way for the benefit of all the whining Democrats/Socialists/Marxists;   NOT  ALL  ILLEGAL  ALIENS  ARE  CRIMINALS.... yes we are aware of that BUT these same Democrats/Socialists/Marxists   seem to be unwilling to admit that many of the foreigners from all over the globe who enter our country illegally have already shown us that our laws mean NOTHING to them.
If there is any doubt in your minds, just take a close look at all of the problems in almost every European Country who have been practicing an open border policy.  I, for one, am not willing to sacrifice one single American life just to appease a group of politicians who basically care for nothing other than their own re-election.
I watched a speech on Monday given by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and in this speech he left no doubt that there would be a crackdown on the federal funds regularly doled out to these Sanctuary Cities/States.  And yes,  this will not only include the funds for public safety but funding for the various public education systems in those locations who insist on being Sanctuaries for Illegal Aliens.  I think it is high time that our federal government stopped handing out our tax dollars to cities and states who see fit to not obey and enforce our immigration laws.

Hardly a day passes that we do not see or hear of some serious violent criminal act being perpetrated by a criminal illegal alien.  And what is even more disturbing is the attitude of many of the government administrators or school administrators of these SANCTUARY  CITIES/STATES who cannot seem to grasp the seriousness of the problem.   Perhaps when the money dries up they might accidentally pull their collective heads out of their collective backsides and just perhaps start paying a bit more attention of the rights and needs of their legal citizens over those of Illegal Aliens........ Then again, when I listen to some of these idiots speak, that thought heads South pretty rapidly.
We have all heard this term applied to various people down through the years and the older I actually become, the more OLD SCHOOL I begin to think.  Last Christmas I received a really nice present from a friend.  It was a book with a rather long title:  KING  FOOTBALL - Greatest Moments in Texas High School Football History.  I think most of you know that I am a huge fan of football but particularly Texas High School Football.
The book actually goes back to 1902 with a photo of the Dallas High football squad in their third season.  They joined Galveston Ball,  Sam Houston and Honey Grove as one of the few early high school programs in Texas.   In the first few pages of the book there is an old black and white photo of the 1943 San Angelo Bobcat football squad who defeated Dallas Highland Park and Lufkin to win their first State Football Championship.  Of course all of the San Angelo old timers are particularly proud of that 1943 team who defeated a Highland Park squad that had two future  college All Americans and one Heisman Trophy winner.  They were All American and All Pro quarterback Bobby Layne who played for the Texas Longhorns and the Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers  and 1948 Heisman Trophy winner and All American for SMU, Doak Walker.  Highland Park played for the State Championship in 1944 and were defeated by the Port Arthur Yellowjackets and again in 1945 where they were tied by Waco High.   Highland Park finally did win a State Championship in 1947 when they defeated Odessa High and broke Odessa's 26 game win streak.
But one story that really caught my eye was a story of the 1941 Masonic Home team.  The Masonic Home team consisted mostly of orphans and children of widowed Masons and during the years 1927 - 1942 under Coach Rusty Russell compiled a record of 115 wins,  30 losses and 15 ties, winning 6 City Titles and 1 State Title.  In this article entitled "1941 Masonic Home:  The Best Team That Didn't Win State."    According to this story,  the 1941 Masonic Home  played one player whose mother had given the wrong year of birth and when it was discovered, the games in which he played were all forfeited.   19 1941 The Wichita Falls Coyotes won the State Football Championship.  Wichita Falls had a record that year of 13 -1.  That one loss was in the season opener to Masonic Home.
On that 1941 Masonic Home team was a young man named Hardy Brown.  Hardy Brown began that season at fullback and finished the season as the Masonic Home quarterback replacing the ineligible player at that position.   After  Wichita Falls won the State Championship they sent a letter to the Masonic Home team telling the Masonic Home team that in their eyes, Masonic Home was the True Champions.
Of course in 1941, I was 5 years old and had never heard of Masonic Home or of Hardy Brown.  But later on, after I became interested in Professional Football I learned who Hardy Brown was.  After playing for the University of Tulsa in college, Hardy Brown played professional football from 1948 - 1960.   He was a defensive back and he was one of those defensive players who attempted to make every tackle a  "Woo Hit."   I did get to see some of the games in which he played and he was a monster on defense.  During those years few wore face masks and Hardy Brown tried to knock the ball carrier's head off with every hit.  I believe I saw one program where Old School Quarterback Norm Van Brocklin made the statement that Hardy Brown had more knockouts than Joe Louis.

In case you were wondering what a "Woo Hit" is, it is one of those tackles where the opposing teams and everybody in the stands says Wooooo!  I think that phrase was coined by former defensive coach Ray Rhodes.  He coached the defensive backs for the 49ers when Ronnie Lott was one of their corners/safeties.  And I can assure you that every time Ronnie Lott made a tackle it was a "Wooo Hit."

I guess you can say that I am Old School as I like hard nose football and I like the old time hard nose coaches.  I guess that is why I like the style exhibited by Bill Belichick just about as well as anyone in the NFL today.  Also I heard this morning that Bill O'Reilly has a new book released today entitled "OLD SCHOOL" and I will probably read it to see if his ideas and mine are anything alike.   I do know that  he has been referring to two separate classes.... OLD SCHOOL and SNOWFLAKE.   While I have heard the term SNOWFLAKE used to describe today's politically correct liberals.... years ago the term SNOWFLAKE was a term used by black males to describe white girls who dated black men.  BUT I guess that the term SNOWFLAKE has taken on a different meaning.  BUT  the people whom Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity call SNOWFLAKES, I prefer to call either SLUGS or TWINKIES.  Remember the neither SLUGS or TWINKIES have a backbone  and neither do today's   Liberals/Democrats/Socialists.
When I get to thinking about OLD SCHOOL in sports or just about anything else, I am referring to coaches and players who are/were more interested in THEIR  TEAM than on individual statistics.  I can still remember the BEST Running Backs to ever play in the NFL simply handed the ball to the referee after scoring  and their teams congratulated them without doing some high chest bumping leap.  AND I seem to remember some of the GREATEST basketball players to ever play at any level did not feel obligated to scream at the top of their lungs every time they scored.  Once again, these people were more interested in the success of their teams than in personal recognition.

I can remember that Mark Gastineau while playing as a defensive end for the N.Y. Jets was the first defensive lineman I can remember separating himself from the team on every sack and doing some idiotic dance.  I thought it was bush league then and I still think so now.  I can never remember Deacon Jones or Gino Marchetti or Doug Atkins or any other of the OLD SCHOOL defensive ends acting like a fool when they did their job.  Nor do I remember Dick Butkus or Mike Singleterry or Ray Nitschke  or  Dick "Night Train" Lane or Ronnie Lott  doing some dance after a real "Wooo Hit".  
Just look at our "Entertainment Industry" today.   Very few of  today's actors depend upon true acting talent to sell their movies.  They seem to depend more upon special effects and lots of explosions to sell the picture.   Of course there are some exceptions.... Denzel Washington comes to mind.   BUT OLD SCHOOL Actors like John Wayne,  Spencer Tracy,  Marlon Brando, and Robert Duvall depended more upon character portrayal than they did on special effects.  I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and most of today's entertainment that I behold is pure crap.
I am happy to say that my two oldest Grandsons,  who are both in their 30s  exhibit OLD SCHOOL tendencies.  They both are hard workers.  They both like to hunt and fish.  They are both very handy in construction and vehicle repair.  They are both good family men and get along really well with kids.   They both  treat their Mother with respect and enjoy doing things for others.   To me,  the work ethic and loyalty are what really separate the people who are OLD  SCHOOL  from the TWINKIES/SLUGS.
I am sure that given more time I could think of many more differences as could all of you but  for now  I am satisfied  with the main differences between OLD SCHOOL and SLUGS/TWINKIES  is  their  differences in political correctness;  honesty;  and  the treatment of others.
AND just in case anyone was wondering....... YES, I believe ALL of our Founding Fathers who signed our Declaration of Independence and who Ratified the U.S. Constitution were OLD SCHOOL.  BUT do not think for a moment that I believe that everything that happened in the past was for the best, BUT I do believe that The Constitution of the United States is a RIGID and STRICT set of guidelines which are as RIGID and STRICT today as they were when ratified.

To once again look back to my youth, I can remember seeing at least 6 or 7  live performances in Houston by an OLD SCHOOL musician.  That would be Mr. Charles Edward Anderson Berry.... better known as CHUCK  BERRY.   He always  put on a great show and wrote some really good music back in the 50s and 60s.   I enjoyed Chuck Berry's music from the time I was a sophomore in high school on up until he died on March 18, 2017 at age 90.  Chuck Berry was not only a superb entertainer and musician/songwriter  he was also a great influence on some later musical groups.... like The Beatles.  Now before some of you decide to bad mouth The Beatles I would also like to say that they also put on a great show and in my books,   Paul McCartney is one of the most talented musicians I have ever seen.  In their early years, Chuck Berry's music was an inspiration to both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones (whom I also liked a lot).  As I understand it,  Chuck Berry's last album (CD) will be released very soon.  I will more than likely buy it as I have most of his old stuff already.
I heard a tape a few days back, I believe it was from the Bill Maher program when actress Lisa Kudrow was asked her opinion about get ready for this.... WAR  ON  WOMEN.   To my surprise, Ms.  Kudrow seemed a bit surprised as she was UNAWARE of a WAR  ON  WOMEN.   I was rather pleased to finally hear one of the Hollywood elites blow a hole in that phony bunch of crap.   I know that this is one of the main topics that the Liberals/Democrats/Socialists/Marxists  try to use against President Trump but evidently  Lisa Kudrow was not ready to play that game.
Incidentally  if any of you ladies wakes up one day and are seized with an overpowering urge to just knock the crap out of someone..... might I suggest Nancy Pelosi.
AND if any of you men are overcome with an uncontrollable need to punch someone's lights out, please keep the name Chuck Schumer in mind.
Our very own San Angelo (Sub) Standard Times has been taken over by the dark side.  As I understand it,  the USA Today group has taken over ownership of this once palatable liberal rag and it has gone from simply bad to horrible.  In the past couple of days I saw one EDITORIAL piece written by  Michael Bloomberg and they just don't come any more liberal than that varmint.
When we look at how badly a Paul Ryan led House of Representatives blew the ObamaCare replacement, it is easy to see how gutless the Establishment Republicans are  and hard to see how they got control of the House and the Senate.   The Republicans have control of Both Houses and the White House and are getting ready to piss it all away.
