        Nothing pains me more than an innocent person suffering intensely just for wanting to exercise his ‘Freedom Of Speech’ fundamental right.
The story hurts me more because this person in question is a ‘Human Rights and Social Change’ blogger just like myself.


        Raif Badawi, a Saudi Arabian blogger, pictured above was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and 1,000 lashes by a Saudi Arabian court for allegedly ‘insulting Islam and undermining the State and the Judiciary.’
In the World today, we are used to seeing State manufactured, cooked up charges against individuals who the Government want silenced, just as we saw in the shabby trial and imprisonment of three Al Jazeera Journalists in Egypt.
What was Raif’s real offence?
    He said things the Government of the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia would rather have unsaid, things they can not tolerate because they are ENEMIES OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
