Mike Huckabee Plans To Run For President To Fight The Secular Theocracy 

Mike Huckabee was the guest again this morning on James Robison's "Life Today" television program, where he declared that he is thinking about running for president in order to fight what Robison called the "secular theocracy" that is destroying Christian liberty in America.
"We've divorced ourselves from an understanding that we cannot survive as a republic if we do not become once again a God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God," Huckabee said. "It is the natural law of God."
After insisting that he is not intending to create a theocracy, Robison piped up to declare that "we have a theocracy right now; it is a secular theocracy" and Huckabee readily agreed.
"That's it!" Huckabee said. "It is a humanistic, secular, atheistic, and even antagonistic toward Christian faith, and that's what we need to understand. Our basic fundamental rights are being robbed from us, taken from us piece by piece."
Later, Huckabee asked for the audience to pray that God's hand will be upon him as he decides whether to run for president.
"The only thing worse than not being elected president would be to be elected president without God's blessing," he said. "I can't think of a worse place in the world to be than in the Oval Office without God's hand upon you. I'd rather not get near the place."

The youngest female on record to give birth was "Lina Medina, from the Ticrapo District of Peru, gave birth by cesarean section in Lima at age 512. The infant was a 2.64 kg (5.8 lb), 47.5 cm (18.7 in) boy named Gerardo. Medina's parents, who assumed their daughter had a tumor, took her to a hospital in late March, where she then was found to be 7 months pregnant. By interrogating her parents, the doctors understood that Medina had entered into precocious puberty (when hormone glands are activated earlier than normal) very early after her birth.[1][2][3][4][5]Although Medina's father was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse, he was later released due to lack of evidence, and the baby's biological father was never identified.[1][4]"

My Hawaii photos, from paper, 1959
I spent the entire summer here when I was 15.

My aunt's Studebaker convertible.

That's my aunt in our backyard. 

Above three - my Aunt Grace's house above a garage on the end of Kalakaua at Coconut.

A WWII bunker near the Doris Duke estate.

From the air on arrival. Unbeknownst to me, I took a photo of my aunt's house, next to the unfinished  condo.



Diamond Head from our apartment.

The condo under construction across the street.

My aunt swimming at Doris Duke's estate where she docked yachts.

Thinking of the slain cartoonists and staff at Charlie Hebdo, I recalled Paul Krasner's counter-culture 1960's magazine, "The Realist." It often had biting satire.. For example, this poster is probably their most famous. I saved the poster shown here for a long time. Then I misplaced it. Too bad I don't have the original, as it is now collectable.

Who am I anyway?
