Alive and Kicking

No need to forsake me, yet. I am much alive and kicking (and suffering silently).  I don’t do as much on this blog as I would like because I am spending much time  proofing the manuscript of my memoirs. It’s simply an intrinsically time-consuming task.

There are new excerpts of the same memoirs, “I Used to Be French….” up on this blog, courtesy of Brandon Christensen,, Editor of cousin blog Notes On Liberty.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

One Response to Alive and Kicking

    I want to buy a couple copies of your book as soon as it comes out!
    Wanted also to share this with you and figured I would throw it in here.
    I received an email this morning from a close buddy of mine.
    It referenced the president referring to the Benghazi incident as “Bumps in the road”. He said he heard a fellow SEAL being interviewed on Fox regarding a book he had written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives. He said the public needs to know the whole truth about the two SEALs that died there that day.
    He then produced this poem……..titled “THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI”.

    We’re the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
    no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
    Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
    defending the country we loved so well.

    It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
    fought to the consulate,and scaled the wall.
    We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
    led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

    Just the two of us, and foes by the score
    but we stood fast to bar the door.
    Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
    so we fought and fought, and we fought till we died.

    We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
    but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.

    Just two dead SEALS, who carried the load,
    no thanks to us….we were just “Bumps In The Road.”
