Condado is an oceanfront, tree-lined, pedestrian-oriented community in Santurce.
It is a subbarrio of Barrio Santurce in the municipality of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Just over the bridge from Old San Juan and Puerta de Tierra, Condado is one of Puerto Rico’s most fashionable places to call home. Cartier, Louis Vuitton, and Ferragamo are among the names you’ll see on the storefronts here.
Sophisticated bistros and restaurants draw lively crowds at night, and the beach is always popular.
Randy has a new video out … again, quite apropos for current events. Thanks for keeping me sane with these videos during the endless fuckery that Drumpf’s ‘presidency’ is and directs his parody at a very worthy recipients:
RESEARCH AND PERSPECTIVE … a ‘must read’!! … DEMs need to do something, IMHO … ‘reality has left the US Congressional House Democrats as representing the only governmental entity which has the Constitutionally based power to ensure that Drumpf is held liable for his criminal acts via impeachment. Many feel that it’s their duty to take this step.’
A growing number of US House Democrats have been pushing the US House Democratic Party leadership to at least commence an impeachment inquiry which does not have to result in an impeachment of President Donald J. Trump based on his felonious acts as enumerated in the FBI’s 3/22/2019 final report regarding its Trump-Russia probe which spanned 22 months, led by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller III.
To date over 900 federal prosecutors from both the Republican and Democratic Parties have gone on the record to assert that based on the FBI’s Mueller findings, if Donald J. Trump were not president, he would have been criminally indicted.
Ever since the end of March 2019, the US Attorney General William Barr showed his true colors of being President Trump’s lackey who heads the powerful US Department of Justice (DOJ). He managed to prove that he can’t be counted to mete out justice…
Bill Press, respected political analyst and author!! … Impeachment? … ‘That’s the key. After refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas, if Drumpf also rejects court orders to comply, he’d be declaring war on not one, but two co-equal branches of government. At that point, Democrats would have no choice but to launch impeachment hearings. And it’s a safe bet that’s what’s going to happen.’
As most of you know, I have been vacillating on whether the time is right for the House to begin the process to ultimately impeach Donald Trump or not. Still today, I have mixed feelings about it … I definitely think he ought to be impeached, but it’s not just that simple. This morning I stumbled across a piece in The Opinionated by political analyst and author Bill Press, whose work I have always respected, and his words made a lot of sense to me. The article helped clarify my own thoughts, both pro and con.
With all due apologies, I know I’ve weighed in on the debate about impeaching Donald Trump in previous columns. The reason I take it up again is because so many Democrats still can’t decide how to proceed.
Democrats are split into two camps. Those who say it’s a mistake to start impeachment…
Something to think about … I saw this first hand working at the Veterans Administration for many years! .. ‘the US Army asked veterans on twitter a simple question, “How has serving impacted you?” … ‘Be a hero and resist the warmongers among us.’
AS Memorial Day approached the US Army thought it would try something new….it ran a survey that asked veterans on Twitter a simple question…..the answers were not what the Army was hoping to get…..
……..the US Army asked veterans on twitter a simple question, “How has serving impacted you?” As Memorial Day approaches, whoever is in charge of the Army’s social media was probably hoping for some nice responses about all the benefits they think come with serving, college education, the bonds formed with fellow soldiers or the invaluable life experience. But the sad reality that our nations veterans and their families face showed itself in the thousands of heart-breaking replies to the question.
Michael J Neel replied, “26 brothers dead. Only 8 in theater. Psyche ward myself after 3 attempts. Everything we accomplished in Mosul was wasted. Every life we gave was spat on. That’s how serving impacted…
