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!!!
Excellent post … a full account of what is at stake!! This is not the time to sit back. The GOPers are already trying and they will not STOP – they have shown it in scarcely 4 days since the inauguration!! …
“So until next time, ready to fight the good fight against seditious traitors, murderers, and rebels who attempt to hijack the words of the Declaration and the Constitution to justify their crimes against those documents, our Republic and their fellow citizens, for they will not give up until they are completely whipped.”
I apologize for the long delay in getting this article online. I began it Wednesday but had a number of interruptions which culminated last night when most of the article was lost when it did not automatically save. I was almost ready to hit the publish button when I noticed so much was missing.
Wednesday I felt a tremendous sense of relief as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn into office. It felt like the threat of dictatorship, a violent coup, and the destruction of our Republic by President Trump and his violent supporters led by Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and self-proclaimed anti-government “militias” had receded into the background, at least for the moment. It also felt incredibly hopeful as an incoming administration guided by what is best for the lives, health, and security of all Americans was taking charge. Watching…
Didn’t take long, did it? Now even a ‘honeymoon’ period … baseless attacks began right away!! … “Now, they’re calling for unity with brainwashed conspiracy theorists cultists and white nationalists. After four years of Trump racism and after staging a bloody failed coup attempt against our government, I don’t want to hear these assholes complaining that their white privilege is being denied.”
The Republican Party sold its soul for Donald Trump. Positions? What positions? In service to their orange messiah, the GOP vanquished all their previous positions. The party is more of a cult than a party. Now, they’re trying to figure out if they’re a party in pursuit of positions again or if they still need to bow down before the Trump base.
The one positive for the GOP is that Donald Trump is off Twitter. Can you imagine the tweet storm we would have had the pleasure of experiencing if he was still on the platform? I feel sorry for the poor caddy he’s probably barking at right about now over President Joe Biden erasing his “legacy” of hate and stupidity.
If Donald Trump forms his own party with the hypocritical name, “Patriot Party,” that doesn’t allow the GOP to be a party of issues again. They will be reminded…
James Corden connects with Amanda Gorman, who captured the collective attention of Americans with her striking poem, “The Hill We Climb“, during the inauguration ceremony for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. James asks Amanda about her journey from being selected to standing at the podium delivering her art to the world. And Amanda talks about her coming children’s book, “Change Sings“, which is already atop the chart.
Amanda Gorman Geeking Out Over James Corden Won Late Night This Week
Gorman spoke via video chat with James Corden on Thursday’s The Late Late Show, a day after wowing audiences with her moving and inspiring poem “The Hill We Climb,” and she opened up about how it came together.
According to Gorman, Dr. Jill Biden saw her recite a poem at an event at the Library of Congress, and it really stuck with her.
“It turns out, I ended up being her first choice… and I basically got this Zoom call at the end of December,” Gorman shared. “I knew I’d been on the long list and then the short list, and the shorter list for a while, and I was just keeping my fingers crossed.”
“I’m the descendant of a slave who was also named Amanda, so looking out and seeing the Lincoln Memorial, looking out and seeing the Washington Monument, seeing the flags laid in remembrance of those lost to COVID, it’s a breathtaking moment,” Gorman recalled.
“And on the other hand, you have all the human anxieties like ‘I’m cold,’ and, ‘I know Biden is right behind me, how does my hair look?’ and, ‘My nose is sniffling,’ ‘Don’t trip, don’t mess up,'” she continued. “So you kind of have to let go of all of that and let yourself be a vessel for the poem.”

Let’s be clear, I’m a strong woman!
Never apologize for being a powerful woman!
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.
A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done ~Marge Piercy~
