DID DRUMPF REALLY SAY THAT?
A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS
The red “*“ marks the spot where our favorite spot on the world is located.
~RINCON BEACH RESORT~
Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.
The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.
As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.
Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.
BEST INLET EVER
AERIAL VIEWS OF THE RESORT
BEAUTIFUL SHORELINE AND SANDY BEACH
AWESOME, PERFECT RELAXING ATMOSPHERE
*(just what the doctor ordered)*
HURRICANE MARIA PATH OVER PUERTO RICO
*(the red “*“ marks the spot where the resort is located)*
NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS
It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.
According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.
Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.
There was no place to hide!
NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE
*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*
It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.
The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.
The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.
THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS
THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE
CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE
INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION
THANKFULLY THE INNER COURTYARD SEEMS ABOUT THE SAME
Thank you to my friend Héctor

There’s no need to say anything else.
The meme says it all.
Your time will come: silence, inaction, support, complicity, tax scam, health care scam.
There’s nothing worth of the great “American Nation” left with this out of control governance.
You are part of the problem!!
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an American immigration policy that allowed some individuals who entered the country as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals – referred to as Dreamers after the DREAM Act bill – were enrolled in the program created by DACA.
The policy was established by the Obama administration in June 2012 and rescinded by the Drumpf administration in September 2017.
It’s a sad day in this country when the arguments, political discourse and asinine heartless policies of an illegitimate presidency trickles down to younger, innocent and defenseless people.
This DACA recipient says a fellow classmate launched an online campaign to get her deported.
I wasn’t going to but I have to.
The complicity of Drumpf’s sycophants must be brought to the forefront.
Do they think we are blind, dumb and stupid?
It’s insulting to the intelligence of a rational individual.
It really only shows who they are.
KARMA always comes around for you.
You just sit and wait.

‘He was two years too old to qualify for DACA status … and while this good man was being deported to a land HE DID NOT KNOW, the Nation was honoring Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.’
His only “crime” was being brought to the United States as a child.
He was 10 years old when his aunt brought him to the United States. He was orphaned and she was his closest relative. She was living and working here on a “green card”, but had not become a citizen. She worked two jobs, both as a maid, in order to provide for him.
He attended school graduated and attended a community college where he graduated with honors. He opened his own landscaping company.
Eventually his business grew and he employed 22 others.
He married his high school sweetheart and they had five children together. They spent nearly 20 years trying to get him a green card.
They paid their taxes, worked hard, raised their children. He spent over $150,000. on attorneys in an attempt to become “legal”. He did everything right. He tried to become a legal…

SHUT IT DOWN!! … the threat is always brought forth!
‘This year, perhaps there will be no 11th hour solution, for the idiot-in-residence does not seem to be willing to put the good of the nation ahead of his own waning popularity. ‘
The governance of this nation is in tatters!!
Until recently, I was truly desirous of the Democrats working with this president and fellow republicans colleagues, even if it meant that Democrats would have to cave by giving the president a win with funds for his Wall in order to pass real immigration reform.
My thinking hardened when the republican President Donald J. Trump chose to blow up a bi-partisan plan worked on by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Lindsey Graham and 4 others, to fix the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and other immigration issues, at a Thursday morning meeting (1/11/18). Senators Durbin and Graham were prepared to present their proposal, but the president chose to renege on earlier commitments to approve any bi-partisan work product by blowing up the meeting with profanity and by referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as shxtholes,
I had been one of those foolish who believed the…
