Face Book Lady Friends

I cant recollect exactly how this all started.  Now I have two Face Book albums and Face Book Album II of sketches of Face Book lady friends.  I know for a while it was fun when playing Zinga Poker to request a pretty photo be your buddy.  After a time I had a number of smashing photos of Lovely Indonesian and Filipina poker players.  I had always been a fan of Asian women and one of my first and most important friends (real life lover) was a Japanese beauty,  I had always had some artistic talent, and always tried to sketch my lady friends.  So I started to Sketch some of the Indonesian ladies and published on Red Bubble.  I got pretty good with a technique I perfected and a Chinese artiest Gal on Red Bubble commented on my collection of Asian women sketches.  I offered to sketch her, and she sent me a lovely photo which I sketched.

The concept of an album of Asian lady sketches was never an intentional objective, I was just randomly sketching my Poker Buddies.  What did happen is that to gain access to pictures of these ladies I needed to request Face Book friendship.  This opened up to me a broad tapestry of face Book that I hadn't originally understood.  The concept of fake profiles.  People began to identify some of my poker buddies as Andriana Lima and Megan Fox and others.

I am retired and have a lot of time, to play poker and to sketch.  So when I play poker I "buddy" many of the  gals I play with, then I find them on Face Book and befriend them, which most of the time you need to do to get access to their photos.  It does have a slight tinge of stalking to it, and sometimes it feels a little embarrassing.  But a large percentage add me, I suppose they look at my profile and see my art and other entries and pass me for those reasons.

Many of my Poker Buddy lady friends are bad poker players and beg for chips all the time.  What I have found out more than once, is that my pretty friend was a fraud and actually a guy who trolled behind the pretty face to beg for chips.  A couple of times they got to like me so much they confessed on their own.  Eventually, I got a little smarter, I noticed how real individuals almost never took very many good photos with sharp focus.  I began to question when there were impeccably focused professional looking shots.

But still, it didnt matter too much to me, if there was a photo somewhere there was a women  behind it and sketching it was still ok.  One thing did bother me a lot, a few times you would find a very young girl posing behind a sexy photo, it dosnt take long to figure that out.  Some young gals have a face book clique of phony pictures and a phony network of  friends.  I worry about them a little.  Now I always try to ascertain who is real and not.  You can see a pattern in their friends and likes.  I have a few young friends and try to be a  positive influence.

So I still have a few mysterious friends who I haven't Identified, some who love me dearly for a few poker chips.

But during this time I have made a number of  friends.  It is a phenomenon that couldn't happen any other way except on a social network.  I am 69 years old, and in reality 20-40 year old ladies wouldnt associate with me.  There just isn't anyway to make that connection.  Even if you met, the initial barriers would prevent developing any extended social intermingling.

I have 20 year old Indonesian friends who call me Uncle, Filipinas call me Lolo (grandfather).  Islam Muslim ladies I would never think of having as friends.

I had two friends from Afghanistan, one male one female (I think) when I asked them anything about Afghanistan they told me they done discuss it on the internet.  That was a solemn moment for me, In the USA such guarded thinking is reserved for bank robbers,  I called her My Afghan princess and she called me Hero. 

My first sketch wasnt an Asian lady, it was this young gal

I never befriended her or talked to her, she is so young that I felt it would not be appropriate, but she was so lovely I had to sketch her, she is a poker buddy, and when I see her down in chips I send her a few.  Others do too, I have seen that.  Maybe she isnt real.  I hate to think that.  But somewhere this angelic girls exists.  Often I wonder if she is as good inside as outside.  I pray that is so.  She is Scandinavian VIKING.

I am not going to get too specific about my lady friends but in general terms I will relate my experiences..  In a few cases I have captured segments of chat and may include those where appropriate.

Perhaps today our Black brothers will begin to see the way,

The White House:
 Perhaps today our Black brothers will begin to see the way,

    • Dominic J. Melfi 
      Perhaps today our Black brothers will begin to see the way, the black leaders have corrupted your families, your churches and your very children, they dont educate you, dont train you, take trillions from the treasury and havnt helped you, now we tear down public housing, fill prisons with blacks, watch you murder and abuse each other perhaps it is time to make them earn your vote?

      Obama lives very well, as does Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and your other leaders, are they truly helping you? You need to vote for people who want you to have school vouchers so your children can go to schools that will teach them not imprison them. You need churches to preach love not hate, hate is double edged, black on black crime will not be solved by preaching hate.

      It all starts in the schools, they trap you there, the Republicans want to break that cycle with vouchers, first thing Obama did was enroll his girls in private schools, second was to stop school vouchers in Washington DC. A TREMENDOUSLY SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM.

      Think through this, 10 trillion spent on welfare programs and you have 25% unemployment. They are not helping you.

      Challenge the conservatives to help make this right, start it now in 2010. Speak up, we will honor your vote. Let us know you want things to change, it has been 60 years of Democrats failing you. We will count your votes.

    • Dominic J. Melfi Imagine what might happen if the conservatives saw African Americans even 10% willing to try a new approach, I would believe you would have a good partner, conservative people are the doers and the makers, they can get things done.

    • Dominic J. Melfi Now the liberals want to legalize drugs, it may stop some crime, but what will it do to your failing communities? Will generations of doped up inner city children prosper? Figure it out!!! Liberals are not your friends.

A Darwinian Model Dumbing down citizens

Dumbing down citizens by destroying their education is a symptom of the collective salvation Obama talks about.

    • Dominic J. Melfi 
      For 200 years people came to the USA for opportunity
      they expected to work hard and prosper
      The progressives have fashioned a new USA
      Now people come here for free stuff
      And Obama is sweetening the pot

      Obama's USA has no opportunity
      or exceptional ism
      it has a flat line of social justice
      work hard is your retribution for your sins
      and redistribution for you collective salvation
      is your religion.

      Why do these people do this, believe these things?
      Its the Darwinian model
      Nature tries everything to see what survives
      Collectivism is a reoccurring theme
      The ANT, BEE DNA
      What happens in a collective
      is the masses are dumbed down so
      a few MASTER ants and BEES control everything


      Evidence is that is true, amazing isnt it?


      Obama and his cohorts in Chicago funneled 100 million dollars to their cronnies in a educational fiasco from donations from the Annenberg foundation. After 100 million between Obama and his partners no significant improvement in ANY CHICAGO SCHOOL.

      They gave all the money to partnership organizations.
      Some run by Bill Ayers.

      No evidence these progressives want to educate anyone.

      An August 2003 final technical report of the Chicago Annenberg Research Project by the Consortium on Chicago School Research said that while "student achievement improved across Annenberg Challenge schools as it did across the Chicago Public School system as a whole, results suggest that among the schools it supported, the Challenge had little impact on school improvement and student outcomes, with no statistically significant differences between Annenberg and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain, classroom behavior, student self-efficacy, and social competence."[59] "Breakthrough Schools," which received special financial and professional support from the Challenge between 1999-2001, a time during which the Challenge began withdrawing funds from other schools, "began to develop in ways that distinguished them from other Annenberg schools and sustained or strengthened aspects of teacher professional community school leadership, and relational trust while other Annenberg schools did not."[59]
