OK, I am getting tired of the unsolicited emails from people , however well I know them or not, about views on politics , abortion , gay rights , party affliations........................etc.
I got one email that included a youTube video of a bunch of people sitting in the woods crying for the trees! The implication was that if you voted for OBAMA, we were going to end up with a bunch of Americans that sat around crying for everything?
Another was about how Gov. Sarah Palin was allowing the hunting of deer or elk be done from a helicopter! I guess the implication being that we will be able to shoot cats and dogs from our helicopters?
And yet another was titled - "CONFUSED". It was a long worded diatribe about something but the only thing that confused me was why it was sent?
ENOUGH ALREADY! The reason I have a blog is so if the hand full of people who actually care what I think can read and see it by their choice!
You like chips with or without salt?

I had been thinking about our National Guard. There had just been a small piece in the Times-Picayune about Louisiana National Guardsmen actually getting to guard (patrol) something in Louisiana, the French Quarter. Everyone has been thankful to have them around! Close to 300 of the guard have been supplementing (the under manned ) New Orleans police force since Katrina.

Enter British “political terrorist artist” Banksy. Banksy has spread his graffiti images on numerous building facades throughout New Orleans. Its clever, cunning, and thought provoking but there is one problem. The image Banksy did portraying Guardsmen as looters is inaccurate , unfair and unappreciated!

Had Banksy done one depicting a few rogue New Orleans police officers hot wiring a brand new Cadillac? Now that is another story (and picture), and one that would be clever , cunning , thought provoking and accurate!
