Memorial Day

Picture by Impeach the Idiot

The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them,  glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.  ~Thucydides

What are you doing today? Going to the lake? A bar-b-que? How about a parade? But a 3-day weekend is not the purpose of today. Today we pause to honor and remember those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. We live in the Greatest Country in the World thanks to them!

God Bless!

Quit whining and do something about it!

Anyone else sick of hearing Pedro Ramirez play the victim card? Heard him on tv this morning complaining again. First, we would like to congratulate him on getting his degree from CSU Fresno. We would also like to congratulate all of this years graduates!

But, listen buddy, you just graduated from college, so time to quit playing victim and start taking control of your own life. Its no longer your parents fault that you’re here illegally. In fact, it hasn’t been their problem since you turned 18.  Show the rest of us that you really do want to be here and contribute to society.

Sidenote: Did you know that CSUF celebrated its 100th Birthday this year!

High-Speed Fail

The idea of traveling quickly North to San Francisco to catch a Niners game or South to LA to shop sounds divine! To not have to worry about timing it to avoid sitting in traffic. Not having to worry about if you’ll find a parking spot. Sounds amazing doesn’t it?!

Ask yourself these questions: Do you think the High-Speed Rail is actually going to be built? Do you think the HSR is going to be cheaper to ride versus driving? Even with todays high gas prices. How much will tax-payers have to subsidize the cost of a ticket? How over budget will it be? How much farm land, businesses and homes will be destroyed? How much time will it actually take to get to San Francisco or LA? How much money has already been wasted? How many people will actually ride the High-Speed Rail?

Anyone else find it odd that it runs through a certain someones district?! When the plan was originally to go along the 99? Why can’t they decide on a route?

California can not afford to build the High-Speed Fail right now! The Central Valley can not afford to have good farm land tore up. Especially if its going to be just some unused tracks dividing land. Maybe, one day when our state has a balanced budget with money in the reserve. AND the Federal government has a balanced budget. But, right now is not the time to build this. Lets follow the other states who have scrapped their high-speed rail plans and get back to basics.

Central Valley’s Childrens Hospital

Hopefully, most of you will never need Valley Children’s. But it is nice to know that we have a state of the art children’s hospital in our backyard. Here are some quick facts about the hospital: 50-acre campus, 1 of 10 largest children’s hospital’s in the US and has more than 450 Doctor’s.

Although they are one of the largest, yesterday they announced that they will be expanding. You can find the press release about the announcement here: http://www.childrenscentralcal.org/PressRoom/HospitalNews/Pages/ExpansionUnveiled.aspx

Valley Children’s is a wonderful hospital that does incredible work. Like we said, hopefully you will never need it, but take comfort in knowing that its there.
