Here Come the Fuzz

If you remember that expression, you just carbon dated yourself to the 6th century B.C. But no worries, I remember it and the yellow happy face, and “The devil made me do it,” and the yellow happy face with a bullet hole. Jeeze. The 60’s were such odd times. “Here come the fuzz” was a derogatory phrase about the police… Continue reading

Your Local Police Militarization

Does this not concern anyone but me?! Does this make you feel safer??! This is insane! We are running in the wrong direction as fast as we can. Why? Police militarization is hurting the wrong people. Is government anticipating our running out of drinking water because of all of the fracking poisoning the drinking water or because of the depletion… Continue reading

A Powerful and Persuasive Speaker

She makes horse sense and has a clear presentation style. I don’t know where Elizabeth Warren stands on any other issues, but I’m now listening! Her content is on target and her delivery is persuasive. Obviouly, with her background, she’s smart and articulate. Listen for yourself. How we got into this hole: $1 trillion in tax cuts for the super… Continue reading

El Segundo Antique Car Show ’10

I really like going to the El Segundo Antique Car show, held each year near the end of August.  It’s free and is sponsored by the El Segundo Police Department, which I think is also cool.  I first went in 2008. I was out of town last year on business and missed it.  This year’s show was a little different… Continue reading

He echoed what I had heard in the news:  that suitcases literally… Continue reading

Where Did My Country Go?

This causes me grave concerns! Once again I ask, “How much of our privacy and freedom are we willing to surrender?!” I’ve kept asking where the ridiculous amount of money I pay in taxes is going. And then we can’t balance local, state, and federal budgets?! Is it because those agencies are spending vast sums of money on tools such… Continue reading

This Quotation Is Rather On Target

The corporate influence is certainly the worst–that whole greed thing, win at all costs. Take what you demand. Add to this mix the religious extremists that accept whatever their religious leaders tell them without any question or soul searching–one of whom, Anderson in AZ, is publicly espousing praying that Obama will die of brain cancer and the righteous need to… Continue reading

Just Standing There…

I was driving to work later than I normally do when I first saw him. He was just standing there holding a plastic bag in his right hand, a middle aged fellow with hair almost down to his shoulders. There were about 4 or 5 people standing in front of him, looking up at him actually. I’m surprised I noticed… Continue reading
