My son got a chance to hang out with Brigadier General Yoo (Marine Recon), and I took some time to chat with my fellow active duty Marines. Yoo was there watching Recon Marines exfil from helpicopters via fast roping. Was so awesome to meet him. A true hard charger. I passed out cards, and let the Marines around me know they could call me if they needed work. I am an affirmative action employer. I affirmatively will walk over 50 college grads to hire a Marine vet.
Check out the general’s recon badge and UDT bubble.
General Yoo is the real deal. And what a hard charger. Rest assured, even with a terrible commander in chief, these Marines will do their duty. 3d Reconnaissance Battalion, 3d Marine Division. Ooooh rah!
Wife Surrounded By Marines
This is the only time I was a little nervous. Look at these young Marines. No way I can compete with these hard chargers. “Honey take the pic and get in the car”. She is just way too hot to leave with these American heroes. That was that. Anyways, I have some great videos I will put up on Youtube of the Blue Angels on the way. Semper Fi.
So it was my daughter Annika’s birthday on Sunday. So no better way to celebrate, than to hang out with a bunch of U.S. Marines right? So we headed to Miramar Air Station in San Diego. Last year, we did the same for my son. Our kids are being reared up to revere American history and especially our war fighters.
In other words, they are being taught the exact opposite of what public schools teach. Anyways, it was awesome.
March 8, 2011 – So I was watching the news this morning, and I see that King Harbor, Redondo Beach, is where there were approximately one million dead fish Tuesday. So I go to the gym and decided, what the heck, I will drive down the street and see for myself after my work out.
Fishermen Cleaning King Harbor
So I get there, but ended up at the far south harbor, where the least amount of fish died and snapped these pics of fishermen pulling out dead and live fish on my Blackberry.
Barrel of Sardines Taken out of King Harbor Redondo Beach
I had to go to court that day, seeing as how I am a Redondo Beach personal injury attorney, so I did not have time to take more pics where the larger fish schools had died.
This incident is the largest that has occurred in California and it is believed that they might have been victims of rough seas and oxygen deprivation. I believe it. There were so many sardines swimming around, they could literally have consumed all of the oxygen in the harbor. According to State Fish and Game spokesman Andrew Hughan there is no threat to the public or other marine life. The fish were not victims of a red tide and believed to be victims of oxygen deprivation and in fish terms drowned.
Hughan said the first reports of dead fish were mostly sardines that were reported Monday night and boaters Tuesday night got the full view of the amounts of fish that were dead. He also stated that this situation is going to have a terrible odor and will only get worse.
There has been no has-mat safety issue, and, as I stated above, workers with nets and buckets were cleaning the dead fish out at King Harbor Marina. Hughan stated the fish have washed up on shore, on rocks and pretty much covered the harbor in dead fish.
According to some scientists they believe the fish were trying to escape the rough seas, heading for calmer water. They feel the fish swam around the sea wall into water that lacked oxygen. Hugan stated that underwater the dead fish were piled between one and two feet deep and city officials or he could not estimate how long it will take for the cleanup. He said that there were no red tide or toxic substances in the water.
There are biologists that plan to conduct necropsies, which is an autopsy on the fish to ensure that they did die from oxygen deprivation. Anyways, this is true citizen journalism. Booyah CNN.
