President Obama signs June 2014 LGBT Pride Month Proclamation, City of Visalia to issue Resolution



Once again President Barack Obama has done something certain to drive the wingnuts into even deeper fits of apoplexy. On May 30, 2014, he signed a
Presidential Proclamation — Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, 2014.

The City of Visalia will be issuing a Resolution of Recognition of local Activities held in honor of LGBT Month at it’s Monday, June 2nd, 7pm meeting.  The City Council will present the resolution to Dr. Steve Palmer and Joan Palmer, co-Presidents of the Tulare-Kings Chapter of PFLAG.

In 2012 and 2013 Visalia issued proclamations declaring June of each year LGBT Pride Month in Visalia.  A change in the rules regarding Resolutions of Recognition and Proclamations in February 2014 resulted in this year’s presentation being a “Resolution of Recognition”.

White House: No aliens (that we know of)

In response to online petitions at the White House website, the Obama Administration has formally responded to demands that the government “formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.”

Not surprisingly, the official response is:

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye.

Of course, that’s what they want you to believe! I mean, after all, what are they going to say? “Yeah, you got us! We admit it, Rosewell was a alien spaceship, and we’ve got the bodies in a morgue at Area 51.”

Next up, a petition to make them admit this petition was disinformation and a lie, too.

The Truth Is Out There.

Mulder! Run!


Barry lends a hand, gets blamed!

Old man Sam has a wonderfully eclectic home, there on Freedom Lane.  A large lot, with a spectacular view and wide lawns. It started out as a modest Colonial home, but has undergone several renovations through the years.  Sam’s family has been growing ever since he moved in, and while there are some ugly stories about the previous tenants and how they were treated, our tale today is not about them, or their sad story.  It’s about an incident that occured recently at the sprawling residence.


How I spent my weekend

Leave a comment

Well, an interesting weekend, no doubt.  Friday began my three days off pretty slowly.  In fact, I really don’t recall exactly what I did, other than be lazy and play on the computer.  Oh, wait, it’s coming back to me, now that I think about it a bit.   I watched the news, then switched over to ScyFy (damn, I hate that new name) to catch Stargate Universe, and Sanctuary.  Unfortunately, SG Universe skipped a week, so it was a repeat of last week’s Sanctuary, then the new episode.  Fun seeing Michael Shanks back on the screen, cute crack about Amanda Tapping’s hair.  More dinking around online, and some DVDs.  Watched Life Free or Die Hard. Again. Not bad.

Saturday was much more interesting.  It started off with a bang.  Or, more correctly, a crash.  I was sitting in my computer room/radio shack when I heard something nearby make a loud crashing noise.  I looked out back, thinking the fence the next door neighbor had replaced after it fell in October might have died again, but it seemed OK.  I checked out front, but couldn’t find anything, so I wrote it off to some debris settling noisily next door, where they are renovating the house.  By this time, Ted had messaged me, inviting my up to Fresno for dinner, then clubbing.  Never one to pass on a visit with Ted, I headed up that way.  Dinner at Ted and Mychal’s, some tv, and then off to the North Tower Circle in Fresno.  They had go-go boys!  The picture is not of the guys dancing that night, but it gives you an idea.  Two guys, one hispanic, one asian, both very hot.  Even a go-go girl, for the ladies.  Any straight guy would have thought she was super hot,  even I appreciated the scenery!  Met some interesting people there, they had quite the crowd.  We stayed till closing, then back to Ted’s.  It was about 2:30 when we arrived, so I expected to say goodnight and head on home, but for some reason Ted turned on the DVR, and we started watching a Criminal Minds program about FBI profilers.  About half-way through, I noticed Ted, Mychal,  and the puppies Eva and Jasmine were one big pile, all sound asleep on the couch!  Well, they had gotten me wrapped up in the program, so I just sat there watching it until it was done.  Then I woke them all up to say good bye, at almost 4am!  That’s waaaay past all of their bedtimes! Home again, and bed.  Before I went to sleep, though, my cousin, as he was getting up, asked me if I saw where the tree had fallen in the back yard.  Sooo….  THAT’s what the crash was!  I told him I’d look at it later, as I was going to bed.

Sunday, I got up early, dragged myself out of bed, actually, to get to Tulare by 2pm for a meeting of the Tulare County Atheists.  Had a nice chat with a few people.  I was expecting more of a turnout, since I had posted a blog on the Visalia Times Delta’s online site, and posted a notice on the TCA’s wordpress blog site.  Back home,  I pulled the tree off of the fence and cut some limbs off.  I took a nap, which I seldom do, and then dinner.  The rest of the evening was spent watching Oprah’s Whitehouse special, the news, then a Star Trek movie DVD and doing laundry.  Now I’m done, and going to bed!

All in all, not a bad weekend at Casa De Jimbo.
