A THRILL To See My Name In The Credits...! Busy, Busy, Busy...!

Well, the "Phineas & Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension" movie has aired on The Disney Channel, Disney XD, and ABC. I was privileged to be a (VERY small) part of the production, and tickled to actually get a screen credit for my tiny contribution!
I rendered some early-stage storyboard roughs for the musical number early in the movie where Dr. Doofenshmirtz meets his even MORE evil doppelganger from the 2nd Dimension. He is the ruler of this universe, and they perform a song-and-dance called "I've Found a Brand New Best Friend (And It's Me!)"

Working on a poster for The Order of LaShe's, one of the Mobile Mardi Gras krewes. Also roughing out comps for a "Queen's Train" for next year's Neptune's Daughters queen.

Getting ready to start the year's final parade, the Children's Floral.

It's A BOY!

My lovely stepdaughter Michelle Hundley and her hubby Chris found out yesterday that the baby due in January will be a BOY!
I had purchased the baby's first toy, a stuffed "Perry the Platypus", when we initially discovered that my Michelle was pregnant.

WHY Didn't I See THIS On The News....??

While we slept....
Pictures taken downtown Los Angeles on May Day, co-sponsored by the SEIU and various Communist groups.

You'd be wise to keep tabs on what the news doesn't tell you, especially about Obama's precious SEIU. This is very important stuff. Please read to the end ...

Look at the pictures below were they taken in Cuba ? Venezuela? Bolivia? Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador,

maybe Puerto Rico ?


Nope. Los Angeles, USA, just a few months back... this is what happened while we slept, while we went to school,

went to work, while we raised our families. While we watched CNN or CBS, ABC or NBC, or listened to NPR or read

the New York Times and never saw, read or heard a minute of coverage of this travesty while we let our guard down

and we let the Marxist/Socialist/Communist Left and Progressives creep into our schools, the unions, the media and

our government banners and posters with the images of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara (Castro's executioner) and Lenin

would make Fidel Castro, Joe Stalin or Karl Marx proud to be an American!

A May Day rally in Los Angeles , co-sponsored by the SEIU and various communist groups, as well as other unions,

reflected yet another step in the normalization of self-identified communist and socialist ideologies in the Obama era.

Not only did the SEIU help to organize the rally in conjunction with communists, they marched side-by-side with

communists, while union members carried communist flags, communists carried union signs, and altogether

there was no real way to tell the two apart.
Southern California citizen journalist and photographer 'Ringo' was on hand to record the day's events, and

posted a full-length photo essay on his site Ringo's Pictures. To bring this important photo essay to a wider audience,

I present here a small selection of Ringo's May Day pictures; visit his site to see dozens more photos from the rally.
When I tell people that public political rallies are more and more being led by communists and socialists, most

folks simply don't believe me. Aw, come on, you're just giving decent protesters an extreme label, they say.

No, actually, I'm not: The communists freely and proudly declare their affiliation.
And the SEIU has no problem marching arm-in-arm with them.
'Smash Capitalism' is a slogan the SEIU apparently endorses or at least doesn't mind marching behind.
In case you think the SEIU is some peripheral out-of-the-mainstream organization:
The SEIU devoted $28 million to Obama's campaign, making the SEIU 'the organization that spent the most

to help Barack Obama get elected president.' Furthermore, who is Obama's favorite White House guest and

one of his closest confidants?
The individual who has visited the Obama White House the most:

SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited 53 times.

Obama is closely linked with the SEIU.
The SEIU is closely linked with communists.
You do the math.

Did I say communists? Sorry, I meant Communists (with a capital 'C').
Note how the Communists that day (like the women on the right in this photo) carried solid red flags symbolizing

their ideology. Keep that in mind as you view the next photo


One of the SEIU leaders picked up a Communist flag and led a contingent of rank-and-file SEIU members.

Everyone was OK with that.
The way you can identify the SEIU members in all these pictures: They're the ones in purple t-shirts carrying

blue-and-yellow signs.
So, as you can see, the communists and the union members intermingled as the march progressed.
In case you were wondering what the SEIU was saying during all of this, here's a video of the SEIU chanting

'Legalization or REVOLUTION!'

Clear enough?
And it wasn't just the SEIU at the march other 'normal' unions like

the AFL-CIO were on hand as well.
There were plenty of teachers unions attending too, and they brought

along many of their public school students for some good old-fashioned communist indoctrination,.

Most of the idiots in the US who walk around with Che buttons or Che shirts do so simply because they foolishly

think he's 'cool.' These hardcore communists carry his image not because he's 'cool,' but because he was one

of the most radical revolutionaries who ever lived. Right up there with Lenin, apparently.
In order to have a more 'civil dialogue' with their political opponents, the marchers made a puppet of a demonic

Statue of Liberty aligned with the 'Tea Bag Party.'
OK, I guess Hitler comparisons are off the table for now too many people have called it taboo. So what's second

best? The Devil!
Tell me the honest truth: If the Tea Party had marched in a rally behind a banner held up by fascists or neo-Nazis,

don't you think it would have been national news?

But the nation's biggest Obama-supporting political organization

marched behind banners like these, and not a peep about it in

the media.

Until recently, the average American has regarded fascists and communists as equally noxious and equally malignant.

As well they should have. But the drive these days by the left side of the spectrum is to make communism and socialism

somewhat less remarkable and more palatable. For two years they angrily denied the Tea Party accusation that Obama's

policies and supporters had a socialist bent. But in recent months, as the accusation had started to gain traction, the

new leftist tactic has become: 'What's so bad about socialism after all? You're demonizing a very

popular and respectable ideology!'


This needs to go out all around the UNITED STATES in 2011.

Let AMERICA know who Obama’s friends really are.
