IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Image of the Day, Special Edition …. Meanwhile, somewhere in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. “!!

~~April 20, 2019~~


There are plenty of us living in the diaspora.

Not one day goes by that I don’t think of my country, my home.

It’s ingrained in my mind, heart soul and DNA.

My country calls out to me.

Soon, I say, soon!


“Mamá! ¡Borinquen me llama!
¡Este país no es el mío!
Borinquen es pura flama,
¡y aquí me muero de frío”!

En mi tierra, ¡qué primor!
en el invierno más crudo
ni un árbol se ve desnudo,
ni una vega sin verdor.
Priva en el jardín la flor,
camina parlero el río,
el ave en el bosque umbrío
canta su canto arbitrario,
y aquí… ¡La nieve es sudario!
¡Aquí me muero de frío!

Mueller report fallout: How institutional cowardice led to civil war

This is an essential read … there’s plenty of ‘blame’ to spread around! Many in key places have failed to stand strong and protect the nation they swore to protect!! … the future of this country as we know it, without doubt, at stake!!

The Secular Jurist

By Robert A. Vella

In the lead-up to the American Civil War, the nation was tearing itself apart over the issue of slavery.  A series of conflicting actions in border states (e.g. the Missouri Compromise), as well as some notorious decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court (e.g. Dred Scott decision), all contributed to the worsening cultural divide.  If the country could not resolve the issue peacefully, it would resolve it violently.  The responsibility to ensure the former fell squarely on America’s political, legal, and judicial institutions.  They failed, and the resulting societal costs were horrendous which still linger to this very day.

Today, the nation is tearing itself apart over the issue of President Donald Trump who represents the same ideological sentiments as those espoused by Southern secessionists in the 1850s.  And, the same institutions which failed back then have failed once again.  What each of them shared…

The Mueller Report

This is so very important … ‘So, as to the question over whether the Mueller Report “exonerates’ Mr. Trump I can unequivocally state “Absolutely not!” But don’t take my word for it. Actually, don’t take anyone’s word for it, no matter what “side” they’re on. Read it for yourselves and come to your own conclusions. I cannot stress how important this is. Don’t be apathetic and have the attitude that this is just the same old, same old, dirty politics. If you’re planning to vote in 2020, you need to read this report in order to make an informed choice.’

… admire blogger for reading full report!!

By Hook Or By Book


I was up until about 1:00 in the morning reading the report and now have a migraine, so this is going to be a fairly brief post. I just want to share a few thoughts.

1. The 148 page report is split into two volumes. The first deals with conspiracy/collusion, the second, obstruction of justice. While I agree there’s not enough evidence to prove that Mr. Trump and his campaign conspired with Russia to steal the election, they had much too cozy a relationship for my comfort. The report is clear that the Russian government attempted to help Trump win; the Trump campaign was all too willing to embrace hacking that targeted Clinton and the Democrats; the campaign had many concerning ties to Russia. 

2. In the second volume Mueller looked at ten instances of possible obstruction of justice. Three of the more troubling of these were: Trump directing then…

Thoughts … On Notre-Dame

In total agreement … as I read this post, my perspective changes … this is so very important … I share my blogger friend’s thought: ‘Not a religious person, for me the value of the Cathédrale was historical. ‘ … ‘Yes, re-build the Cathédrale Notre-Dame, but not at the expense of the average citizen. Rebuild and dig a little deeper in those pockets to help take care of the French people as well. A building can be rebuilt … a life cannot be replaced.’

Filosofa's Word

Rose windowThe horrific fire at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris on Monday stunned the world.  I think we all shed a few tears as we watched the video coverage of it burning, held our collective breaths hoping that it would not burn to the ground.  And it didn’t.  Much of the building was saved, including, I am told, the Rose windows, a trio of immense round stained-glass windows over the cathedral’s three main portals that date back to the 13th century.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but as of early this morning, it is believed to have been an electrical fault.

Not a religious person, for me the value of the Cathédrale was historical.  Old buildings have so much history, so much beauty.  I have been in the Cathédrale exactly once, during my one and only trip to Paris, and I remember being awestruck by … the…

‘And he is enchanted by the beauty of small things … Simon Van Booy, Everything Beautiful Began After … and the small things are the fulfilling ones … they leave memories behind. They touch the soul!!

Live & Learn

Sometimes he thinks of her, of them. Of what could have been.
Sometimes it’s all he thinks about…
He can feel the weight of their lives in a single step forward.
And he is enchanted by the beauty of small things:
hot coffee,
wind through an open window,
the tapping of rain,
a passing bicycle…

dude ought to be impeached.

WORD … ‘Comrade Drumpf swore an oath when he was inaugurated. He promised to faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. But if you read the Mueller report, it’s clear he hasn’t even tried to preserve, protect, or defend the Constitution.’

Dude ought to be impeached.

Trying to distill a 448 page report down to the point where it can be encompassed in a blog post is a mug’s game. I’m not even going to attempt it. Instead, I’m going to point to one thing — a single line on page 213 of the Mueller Report. This is part of Mueller’s explanation why he’d decided neither to accuse Comrade Trump of obstruction of justice nor to exonerate him. Here’s the line:

“…we recognized that a federal criminal accusation against a sitting President would place burdens on the President’s capacity to govern and potentially preempt constitutional processes for addressing presidential misconduct.”

It’s that last bit I want to draw attention to. That potentially preempt constitutional processes for addressing presidential misconduct bit. In effect, Mueller is saying he and his team decided NOT to accuse Trump of a crime in part because it might bugger up another process…
