I'm starting my first blog in an effort to get my thoughts out to other people in this once and future great state of California. If you're like me, you look around see decline and decay everywhere in our society, and I think it's time we really started to fight back. To share a little about myself and where I come from, I am the child of an American citizen mother and a foreign citizen parent. Sound familiar? I was born in California and have lived here for all but 6 years of my life, and I'm not ready to give up on it. So join me, it's going to be a wild ride!
