Confidant and relaxed
Funny and educated
Strong and humble
Personable and selfless
Able and understanding

The parts of us blurred
Melded into one indavidual
Hazey shadows of self
Formed and shared
Indaviduality peaks through
Blurred and bleary lineage
Who and when are we
Who we are meant too be
Is it constantly changing
Are we ever truelly self
Once and for all ever again

President Obama Thinks that Puerto Ricans are Suckers


Dr. Rex:

I voted for Obama twice! For these, and several other reasons, I’m very disappointed.

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

I voted for president Obama. He said the right things, and said them brilliantly. He promised to restore integrity and intelligence to the White House. After seven years his intelligence is a matter of record…and so is his lack of integrity. 

I am speaking as a Puerto Rican. He has served Israel and Wall Street well, but not us. Here are a few reasons:

U.S.CENSUSUNDERCOUNT

On Tuesday May 26, 2009, he nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the US Supreme Court. On Friday of that same week, the US Census announced that it would favor a strict headcount over statistical sampling, as the 2010 census methodology. 

While Latinos were busy celebrating the rise of Sonia, the US government quietly ensured that they would all be undercounted, throughout the entire nation. Obama thus saved billions of dollars in health, education, and job training expenses – because Latinos would be undercounted…

Sandra Bland’s Sister Responds to Suicide Allegations, Lawyer Says Waller County Withholding Details

24 July 2015

Law enforcement officials in Waller County, Texas, have concluded that the cause of Sandra Bland’s death in police custody was suicide. But Bland’s family and friends dispute claims she was suicidal, and say there is no evidence she previously tried to kill herself before her traffic stop escalated into an arrest.

We are joined by Sharon Cooper, who is Sandra Bland’s sister. Also with us is Cannon Lambert, the attorney representing Sandra Bland’s family.
