First Word – Don’t Get Old

Then … I am very proud so say I am a LIBERAL too!!

The Last Of The Millenniums


There is a reason I’m a Liberal.

My Mom.

She’s 97 1/2.

Raised during the Depression. Worked during WWII. Lost a daughter at birth.

Oh there is a lot, lot more to her life but the point being she has seen a good deal of life in her time.

Now at her age, she is fairly sharp mentally, still reads, does X word puzzles, a HUGE Seattle Mariner fan.

But she is 97 1/2. The body is slowly wearing down. She uses a walker (with help) to get around inside her home. A wheel chair(with help) to go out.

Only income is Social Security. Health care is Medicare and Sterling ($465 premium – yes per month). Get’s ‘extra help’ from the State of Washington that pays her Medicare premium and helps out on her prescriptions. Get’s food stamps (a whole $16 a month) and the State has just approved (Medicaid)…

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!!!
