Oncorhynchus mykiss

This picture doesn't do them justice. The Rainbow Trout that my father and I caught two weeks ago were beyond beautiful. After hiking some of the Finger Lakes Trail, we decided to check out the stream that babbled next to the small gravel parking lot. Some old-timers had told me that the stream contained big Brown Trout or small Brook Trout (depending on who you talked to), but no one had fished it in years. When my father and I peered into a small hole, we saw neither of those species. Instead, we saw nearly a dozen small Rainbow Trout.

The next day, we went back to the stream with our fishing poles. After an hour we had fished less than 50 meters of the stream, but we had caught and released 17 of the most beautiful Rainbow Trout that you will ever find. No longer wanting to disturb such a magical place, we left, thankful of a wonderful experience.

America: Why I love her.

I value...

...the fact that my wife does not have to wear a veil in public.
...the fact that my wife can choose to wear a veil in public.

...my right to defend myself from attack using whatever means I choose.
...my right to vote for political representatives.
...my right to criticize my government.
...my right to own private property.
...my right to be agnostic.
...my right to life.
...my right to liberty.
...my right to associate with whom I choose.
...the opportunity to increase my wealth.
...a society in which upward mobility is possible.
...my country's affluence.

...choice. Something increasingly restricted by local, state, and federal governments.

Withdrawl Date

Well, maybe it's not a withdrawl date but it's definitely not a date to throw a party.

For more information, click here.

Apparently we'll still be a plurality, just not a majority. It still sucks to be a minority, ask African-Americans in the South or Mexican-Americans in the Southwest.

I wonder if there will ever be a massive return of Whites to Europe? Perhaps Australia? ...just a question that popped into my head.
