Sophie, Thanks so much for sharing your stories. I have enjoyed reading them. What an adventure you are living. Congrats on your growing family. Thanks again for the recommendation to visit La Masseria in Massa Lubrensa. My wife and I still talk about what a fun experience it was. Ciao
Scott, I think most politicians are more self absorbed then most parents wish for their children. If you ask parents what their hopes are for their children's future I am thinking 'politician' is not near the the top of their list.
Here is a short paragraph regards Obama referencing himself in a few of his speeches. The 119 times mentioned was in his campaign speech for HRC this year.
As Grabien chronicled, those 119 self-references surpass the 76 times he referenced himself in his 33-minute gun control speech on Jan 5, 2016, the 28 times he brought himself up in a 12-minute speech following a mass shooting Oct 1, 2015, and just barely edges the incredible 118 times he talked about ol' Barry in a 33-minute speech in India on Jan. 27, 2015.
"Thus raise your own mini Trumpster where every thing is about them". Will be fun to compare the number of times Trump uses the word I vs. the number of times The current POTUS used the term I in his speeches eh Scott.
What Scott said.
Hey Scott, Another"rant" regards California. Enjoy.
Population may be going up but tax revenues, not so much. VDH may be on to something.
According to Mercury News there has been a negative migration from CA for 22 of the past 25 years. Maybe VDH is onto some thing.
Let's see. Should I believe Scott Wedel or Victor Davis Hanson.
Hmmm. I think I will go with Victor Davis Hanson
Victor Davis Hanson (born September 5, 1953 in Fowler, California) is an American military historian, columnist, former classics professor, and scholar of ancient agrarian and military history. He has been a commentator on modern warfare and contemporary politics for National Review, The Washington Times and other media outlets. He is a professor emeritus of classics at California State University, Fresno, and is currently the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in classics and military history at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. He chairs the Hoover working group on Military History and Contemporary Conflict as well as being the general editor of the Hoover online journal, Strategika. He has been a visiting professor at Hillsdale College where he teaches an intensive course on world, ancient or military history in the autumn semester, as the Wayne and Marcia Buske Distinguished Fellow in History since 2004. Hanson is perhaps best known for his 2001 book Carnage and Culture: Landmark Battles in the Rise of Western Power, a New York Times best-selling book.
Hanson was awarded the National Humanities Medal in 2007 by President George W. Bush, and was a presidential appointee in 2007-2008 on the American Battle Monuments Commission that oversees the cemeteries of and monuments of U.S. war dead abroad. Hanson is a student of current affairs, particularly regarding the U.S. in the Middle East, national defense issues and illegal immigration. He is also a fifth-generation farmer, growing almonds on a family farm in Selma, California where he resides, and is a commentator on social trends related to farming and agrarianism.
Hey Scott, you are a big California is a great place so I thought you would enjoy this.
Same here Rhys. After his little kerfuffle with his apartment I thought he seemed to back away from commenting. it was a nice respite, albeit short lived.
