Due to drastic changes in life around here, doing a drudgy type front page is just not possible at this time. I will have to resort to more re-blogs and automation.

Just a brief F.Y.I. – I have become a single parent due to the death of my son’s mother. Now would be an excellent time to show any support through donations.

This blog has never been to be about my life, just an outlet for my news junkiness, and artwork.  People want to know what they are supporting.

A single parent and this website would be what you are supporting.

Internet costs have gone up and up. I refuse to get cable and I am penalized for not bundling. You know the story.

SuddenUnLink now limits bandwidth usage per month, when I signed up way back when of course it was for unlimited. All that has changed. I have hit my cap 3 months in a row just trying to do this website, provide something interesting for people to see, and represent Central Louisiana.

I make plenty from WordAds to keep the LouisianaWorld.Net, and BattleOfOurTimes.Com domain names registered. I do not make enough to help pay for the costs of any streaming I try to do, anything that affects my bandwidth usage, etc. I do not make any profit whatsoever in the long run.

I am not responsible for what some people might say on Twitter/Social Media that  show up in embeds I use like RebelMouse, or Totally.Me.  Hashtags like #Louisiana will sometimes bring up vulgar items into the stream.  #Alexandria brings up a lot of stuff from Virginia, and Egypt.  I’m waiting for #Tioga to pop up.

#CenLa = Central Louisiana #CenLA = Central Los Angeles

It doesn’t get much more vulgar than that. ;)

It does make for an interesting read.

Congressman Mistakes U.S. Officials For Indian Ones

Stop the presses.

Rep. Curt Clawson, a freshman Republican congressman from Florida, mistook two senior U.S. officials for representatives of the Indian government during a House hearing on Friday.

“I am familiar with your country, I love your country,” Clawson said to Nisha Biswal and Arun Kumar, addressing fellow U.S. citizens who hold high-ranking positions in the State Department and Commerce Department, respectively.

“Just as your capital is welcome here to produce good-paying jobs in the U.S., I’d like our capital to be welcome there,” he told Biswal and Kumar. “I ask cooperation and commitment and priority from your government in so doing. Can I have that?”

After a lingering silence, Clawson smiles slowly. Kumar appears to grin, while Biswal echoes Clawson’s sentiment, informing him it should probably be directed to the Indian government. It’s unclear whether Clawson realized his error.

Nisha Biswal serves as Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central…
