Choi uses Stalin Poster to Raise Funds for Assembly Campaign

Irvine councilmember Steven Choi is now using his Pelosi-is-Stalin stunt to raise funds for his assembly race.  Choi is complaining that Democrats have attacked him for his right to free speech; no one is denying the wannabe Assemblyman his right to make a fool of himself.  But this isn’t the first time Choi’s “free speech”…

The Holiday Blues….

There’s a perception that the Holiday season brings about an increase in the suicide rates.  All this Merry-making can be a great cause of stress for many.

I’ve met Tom there during an Angels playoff game. He’s a nice guy and very likeable. And normally, I’d be perfectly happy to support someone with Tom’s experience and credentials for a BoS seat.
