My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I truly believe that living in Los Angeles is a privilege. When I moved here almost 20 years ago I was told that the city would eat me up. Instead the city has embraced me. Living in the city where people have the same mindset as you, for the most part, it’s magical.
So once again I’m so proud of our great City for standing up to the NRA. The NRA has become not only a purveyor of death and violence in our country but also a conduit of dirty money from foreign countries including Russia.
Can someone please explain to me why the NRA would be doing events in Russia. Russia does not allow gun ownership it never made sense.
Business in Los Angeles is also a privilege and if these companies wish to continue doing business here they need to start fussing up to how and why they are tied to the NRA.
I’ve been a resident of the city of Los Angeles for the last 18 years. so I seen a couple of mares come and go but not as good as Eric Garcetti. I have seen tangible changes in our city since he has become mayor. I think he would be a great president but I’m pleased that he’s remaining in Los Angeles as our mayor.
I watched Mayor Garcetti walk the picket lines and marches with our teachers and eventually he helped to broker the deal that ended the teacher strike and car are schools open and on a better path.
As you can tell from the pictures it was filled with violent political radicals, not.
If there are violent radicals in this fight it is truly the NRA.

The NRA is full of lies and will do everything to hold their grip on power. They’re only grip on power is to have gun owners believing that we are out to get their guns. That’s not the intention here and it never has been. Sensible gun laws are necessary in any stable Society. Having background checks which can be gone around by going to a gun show is not having background checks. Not putting people who are on the no-fly list on background checks is not having background checks. Allowing military grade weapons on the streets of our country he’s not good policy. My first day in law school my constitutional law professor said something which I always will remember, he said a bad law makes all other laws weaker. Truth.
So yes I was at the March and it was a wonderful expression of love for our children and the future of our country. It was truly of March for our lives. I didn’t get to see the stage because I didn’t want to push in front of the young people who are really the ones putting this on and I was a supporter and almost an interloper so my picture show crowds but not the stage.
Now I hear the pundits question whether or not we will be talking about this in 2 months I say what we talkin about it in two years, I say we talked about this for as long as it takes until this country is like Massachusetts. They have sensible gun laws and if we had the same laws across the country 27,000 people’s lives would be saved each year. That’s almost as many as died in car accidents and I bet you no one would be mad if we made laws that saved people in car accidents.
This was a great day, a historic day and one led by young people and I am so proud of them. They give me hope in a hopeless time. They give me joy in a joyless your last time. They speak truth when truth is spoken by our leaders.
Bravo to the young people that organized this wonderful event.
At 1:04 a.m. on June 10th 2016 a mild earthquake took place. It lasted about 30 seconds. My building is built on rollers but the windows creaked and dishes rattled and my animals were freaked. I subscribe to an earthquake notification service which then reported that the earthquake was felt across the region. Below is the map of the earthquake zone.
