Who Am I?

I served in the US Navy from 2002-08; four of those years were as a Nuclear Propulsion Operator aboard an aircraft carrier. I engage in political activism in various Democratic circles when I am able to. I have a cat, and I am an uncle.

All opinions that I express are my own and do not reflect the views of any organization that I represent.

PURSING EDUCATION OR NFL RICHES?

The story that closed the NFL draft was the Tennessee Titans selecting Florida State safety Myron Rolle in the sixth round as the 207th overall pick.

Myron Rolle was slated to go in the first round of the 2009 draft. What caused him to drop so far? Was it talking to an agent while still a student? Did he suffer a potentially career ending injury while in school? Were there any negative character issues while he was at Tallahassee?

ARIZONA SENATE BILL 1070



Friday was a sad day in American history as the governor of Arizona singed State Senate Bill 1070 giving authorities the right to arrest people for not presenting the adequate amount of documentation proving a person's citizenship status.

TAX DAY 2010


Before class on Thursday, I took a drive over to the Courthouse-on-the-Square.

Take a guess what I saw?

People going about their business on the Square in Denton, TX on a Thursday before noon.

I was also expecting the same with our campus Republicans when I drove by the University Union.

Nope, no one was outside the Union in the Free Speech area either. Students transiting to and from their classes. It is just what you would expect on a typical day at the University of North Texas.

Wait a minute…. This was NOT a typical day. It is April 15, Tax Day. Where are the Tea Baggers?! Where are their creative signs?



EVER SEEN A TWENTY DOLLAR BILL….. HIGH?



 

I am aware of what today is: April 20, AKA "420 Day".


WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT


Saturday Night Live's recent musical guest: Ke$Ha. She performs this song. I've heard it in promos for NBC's game show Minute To Win It.

By the way, who the hell uses a symbol for their name?

The second musical performance….. Well, judge for yourself.

AND YET, ANOTHER, POLITICAL RANT


It's been a while since I posted a good rant. Here are some on some recent current events.
