My Private Blog.....

I have another blog in which I write specifically about me, myself and I. I have the other blog to document my life and look back at myself. Check it out. here


Interesting Building...

Every time I see and interesting building I will take a picture and post it. Today I was driving through San Rafael and I noticed one building more than usual. I've been here over 12 years (and I'm sure the building has been there longer) and it was the first time I stopped to examine the building. It is pretty cool. Here it is.

haha, maybe I'm just easily amused.

How many homes foreclosed in you neighborhood?

I love the San Francisco Chronicle. It is a really good source for alot of information regarding the Bay Area and sometimes California.

The SF Chronicle works on databases that can be accessed by any computer. They have databases that show how much professors at UCs make. I was able to look up all of my professors at UCI. They all make over $200,000.

The most recent database, is a bit shocking. The database shows foreclosed homes in your neighborhood (only avilable for the Bay Area). I was able to look up my neighborhood. Here is what came up.

Vallejo (94589): 26 homes foreclosed in my neighborhood,

Total homes foreclosed in Vallejo: 100

Total homes foreclosed in Solano County: 283

San Rafael (94901): 4 homes foreclosed

Total homes foreclosed in San Rafael: 7

Total homes foreclosed in Marin County: 21

Can you see the differences?

"Mexico's Navy Seized a Homemade Submarine Carrying a Drug Shipment."


OK, I know your not supposed to praise the enemy and all, but damn. Way to go! The cleverness the ingenuity.

According to an article on CNN.com. Four men were arrested in the Pacific Ocean near Oaxaca(wah-ha-kuh) Mexico. They were on board a green, arrow shaped, homemade submarine packed with cocaine.

Apparently, the Mexican Navy spotted and unknown submarine on their radars and followed it from a safe distance until the submarine emerged from the water. The Mexican Navy then proceeded to stop the submarine and arrest its passengers.

can you imagine what the navy must have thought when they looked at their radars?

Anyway, the submarine was, shockingly, not run by the Mexican Cartels but instead controlled by the Colombian Cartel. (watch out Mexicans Cartel, there is competition.)

The Submarine had left Colombia and was headed for California.
This is a little side not, but a good friend of mine has great blog. It is very well written and very interesting. He advocates for LGBT rights and the environment. If you have the time please visit

When do jokes cross the line?

Everyone is talking about it.. the cover of "The New Yorker."

So what does a very-liberal-former-Hillary-supporter-but-now-Obama-supporter think about it? I'll tell you.

(Let it be known, however, that I never became the national spokesperson for the Liberal Obama supporters of America, these are just my thoughts.)

I think it was stretch for The New Yorker to post such a far right cartoon as its cover. The cover has all the things that far-right conservatives hate:

1.) A non-patriotic American minority in office (portrayed by the way Obama is dressed)

2.)Flag burning

3.)Osama bin Laden

4.)A strong black woman willing to fight for their rights (almost looks like a black panther)

far right conservatives would just rather have another white president (which isn't a problem with me as long as he is a Democrat :p)

besides that, it also shows the ignorance of the people that think Obama likes the middle east or can relate to it just because his middle name is Hussein. Like that bitch, Ann Coulter. (I'm so sorry for my language, but I can't really type what I think about her.)

No wonder both McCain and Obama denounced the cover as unnacceptable.

What are your views?

New Post!

So I'm sitting in the cafeteria of College of Marin, as I type this.

I'm really only thinking of how hard life is for me and my family right now. The bankruptcy of our home city plus the housing slump has taken a direct shot at my family and we may be loosing our house. That, however, is not the extent of our problems. I can't get a job because I leave for Irvine in late September. I've applied to so many places, it's a bit ridiculous. I have applied everywhere from Borders Bookstore to Wells Fargo Bank, From Mervyn's to Best Buy. I can't get a job, the typical response is, "We are very sorry, you are qualified for our job but we require a minumum of 6 months employment to work." What bullshit! The moment in my life that I need a job the most. Plus it doesn't help that gas just went up to almost 5 dollars per gallon.

So why am I sitting at the cafeteria at College of Marin? I'm waiting for Gloria (my girlfreind) to get out of her class. I have class from 9:00am-12:00pm and since I don't want to waste money by unnecesarily driving. I just wait until Gloria gets out--she finishes her classes at 3:00pm.

I still attend UC Irvine, I'm just taking summer classes at my local community college to graduate faster.

I'm sorry I haven't posted anything lately but its been rough. real rough.

I should get back to my regular posting not that I have more time.
