RAND PAUL IS NOW GOP ENEMY NUMBER ONE...!!!

Do you think Dr. Rand Paul just ended his presidential aspirations by standing on the same principles as his father?

“There are certain things that are a matter of principle,” one senior Paul adviser told The Daily Beast. The adviser added that even if Paul did believe his opposition to NSA spying might negatively impact his success in the Republican presidential primary, that wouldn’t have stopped him from blocking the measure.
The Republican establishment and the libertarian senator were already at odds. Then came the fight over government surveillance.

From inside Templo de Santo Domingo in Oaxaca Mexico. Places of worship were not under represented in Oaxaca.

One of the many vendors in the Oaxaca Zocalo had these wonderful hand painted skulls on display. Oaxaca was full of color and skulls/skeletons seemed to be a big theme there.

Doing Shots #304

There were so many photo opportunities in Oaxaca Mexico. this shot was from part of a display in the "Municipio de Oaxaca de Juárez". Police with machine guns were very visible in Oaxaca and a couple of them were watching my travel companions and I while we were taking shots of this display.

This woman delivering balloons was one of the many interesting characters wandering the streets of Oaxaca Mexico.

Doing Shots #300

Taking photos of the locals while they were engaged with one or more of my traveling companions was a very successful strategy. The citizens of Oaxaca were very friendly and it was a great place for candid portraits.

From the board game Rampage where one plays a godzilla like monster and scores points by wrecking buildings and eating meeples.

Thanks Elise! It's an amusing but odd game. I expect most kids would like it.

Introduction
I'm a software engineer in Silicon Valley just cruising from one tech bubble to the next and trying to stay healthy until the singularity.  I fully appreciate the fact that it is a golden age for someone with my skill set in my part of the world. 

My past-times are numerous and tend towards the technical: flying, ballroom dancing, and photography to name just a few.

I'm a die-hard libertarian and think everyone who isn't is just a little crazy in the "doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results" sense.  I would gladly sacrifice security for more freedom - and that's not even considering the fact that security is mostly just an illusion anyway.
