Update San Diego 10/21/2010
On politics.I have been working for Meg Whitman for governor and Carly Fiorina for the U.S. Senator for the last five months. A note on Barbara Boxer. Born in New York City, educated K-Brooklyn College, majored in economics and minored in political science. Grew up comparing women of the 40s-50s as "Rose the Riveter" and homemakers after the war. She watched civil rights movements of the 60s and the Kennedy assassination.These events convinced her that women were being discriminated against too. Her parents, mother never graduated from high school, father was a truck driver making $35.00/wk, religion is jewish. Moved to Califorina with her husband, a lawyer in 1965, moving into a $40,000.00 home with a $156.00/month mortage in marin County just over the Golden Gate Bridge. Has two children and had them in peace marches, feeling she needed to save the country for her children, after looking at all the poor and homeless in the area.Started moving into politics in 1971 with a run for county supervisor, in House of Representives and in the Senate in 1992.She faced the view of Farnham & Lunberg, that women were sex starved and wanted to castrate all males. So where is she now?. Southern Califorina is full of illegal and illiterate foreigners running tax free businesses and forcing home born middle class people out of work and into the streets. The Lesbian and male gay population has exploded in the AFLCIO, government civil service, military and school systems. Privte sector contraction has caused more poverty and we are in a holy war in the Mid East. So where are we?-back to dear Barbara's parents in a 3rd World slum in New York City. I see there is life in San Diego. I am getting some comments now. I just need the right subjet at the right time. Thanks.
