U.S. Representative Bobby Jindal

He ran for governor and lost to Blanco, not by much.

He is focused, knowledgable and ruthless in his conviction to get things done.

See how he drives home consensus, along with some background.

Look for him in 2012 or 2016 Presidential race.

Long silence...

Hi folks!

Sorry for the long silence; I did finish some updates for the protest from the end of January.

To be frank and honest (something not hard for me), my life this past year has been turbulent.

It started a little more than a year ago, after I met Delilah from Kenya. I fell in love with her, got married and then did everything possible to bring her to the USA so that we could start our life together.

What was shocking and dissappointing upon her arrival was her eventual admission that she never loved me, never could force herself to love me, nor could ever see herself loving me.

Presented with these facts, I had a choice to make; the choice I made was to annul the marriage on the grounds of fraud.

The marriage was annulled 09-MAR-2007 and I have moved on (actually had moved on prior to the annullment).

I don't regret anything and know that I did my best to make things work; there were just too many things going against me to allow my best intentions, big heart and capacity to love be successful.

Don't feel sorry for me; feel happy that I was able to change course on this choice in my life and not be hurt or harmed in far worse fashion.

I'm thankful to God, my family and my friends for all of the support they've given me, always (not just this past year!!!).

Peace, love and understanding to all...except those f&$#ing jihadis!!!

:)


Just know that at one time I truly loved this woman and she did all she could to reject that love. I can only control me and my choices; it is up to others to make their choices in life.


All the best to you Del...nice times while they lasted.

Protest in the City

Actually more of a disoriented whine-fest. The competing messages and lack of originality showed what the extreme left has to offer in the way of dialogue...not much.

This was billed as an antiwar rally, yet in reality it was an excuse for the Socialist Party, Unions and wackos to cry, bitch and moan about not only George Bush, but Nancy Pelosi, Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton and even Jack Murtha!!!

Geez!!??

By the sound of their ceaseless siren callings, there isn't really a soul on this earth that would please them, or appease them in what we as a country should be doing in the world.

It's all some twisted reality of peace and non-violence; but what do we say to the jihadists? To the ultra, non-peaceful, non-negotiating radicals fundamentalists that would like nothing more than to lay waste to everything we have and have ever known.

I kept thinking to myself, "Do these people realize the first throats to be slit are theirs?"

There were many great photo ops that were made to me; hopefully you'll enjoy the pictures I got.

Protest in the City PHOTO POST #2



There was an obvious blood thirst for Bush at the rally. These people seem to hold their personal hatred above all else, including the security and fortitude of their own country.



These ladies were loud and raucous; having a song list a mile long (they like to sing a lot, with frying pans in their hand).




Of course, this wasn't just an anti-war protest; it was also a hate the west, hate the jews protest also. Interesting though, some Jewish folks in the audience weren't so quiet about the anti-semitism elements in the crowd (and there were many).



Bush assassin; OK lady, whatever.

Protest in the City PHOTO POST #1



It's a family affair! For things being so bad, this kid sure is happy.



This guy was quite creative; he even had music that was he synched his act to which was also impressive.



The 665,000 figure is a bit off wouldn't you say; go reread the Lancet report, remembering that Fallujah in complete anarchy was utilized incorrectly in making a determination of how many Iraqis died. We must also remember that many of the people that died were killed by jihadists and not American forces. Sheesh.



I'm not sure if this is blasphemus or not; the sign is somewhat unoriginal. The outfit gets an A+ though.



Here is a catchy chant: END THE WAR, STOP BUSH, STOP ARNOLD. Huh...??? WTF? Stop Arnold?



Hmmmm....the US is the one threatening the world. Oh, OK lady.

Apologies for the long silence

For those of you that check here from time to time, I want to apologize for the long silence.

I'm happy to say that I'm not stagnant, in fact I couldn't be further from that in terms of my life.

It's all good, so on with posting. I hope to contribute here frequently.

Cheers!

The end of another year

The end of the year signifies a closing, with the next day representing a new beginning. That is how I like to think about New Year's Eve.


Here are some pictures from the Christmas/New Year's week.




Isleton and the next "big" town east on State Hwy. 160, Walnut Grove, are known for the their crawdad eateries.





I couldn't resist taking a picture of this sign.





This is my sister's tree; no they didn't chop it down. They go to the boy scout lot in north Tahoe as they have every year.







These are the lights at the Mormon Temple in the hills of Oakland.

A blue bird day in the bay area


This is from the vista point on the Marin side of the GG bridge. Picture perfect of course!




And a view of the city from the vista point on the Marin side (actually Sausalito is the first town on that side). Crystal clear day!




This is from above China Basin in the Sea Cliff neighborhood. This is a multimillion dollar view for most here (except me, taking this from a public facility...).




Here is the bust that commemorates China Beach that provides some historical context to the area.
