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!!!
There’s time for everything except the things worth doing. Think of something you really care about. Then add hour to hour and calculate the fraction of your life that you’ve actually spent in doing it. And then calculate the time you’ve spent on things like shaving, riding to and fro on buses, waiting in railway, junctions, swapping dirty stories, and reading the newspapers.
This is a real disappointment for me – I come from Puerto Rico! Though not an immigrant (we are American citizens), this really hits my heart!! – “Biden’s messaging to the world was a little messed up. He promised a more human treatment of refugees yet has continued a lot of Trumpian policies. We are still detaining children. We are still deporting refugees without allowing them to legally seek asylum. The rule Joe Biden is using to deport Haitians who haven’t been in Haiti for over a decade, back to Haiti, was designed by Stephen Miller.”
The reason the number of immigrants and refugees crashing our border increased after Donald Trump was kicked out of office by a free and fair democratic election is because Donald Trump was kicked out of office.
President Joe Biden promised a more humane and tolerant immigration policy that inspired thousands of immigrants, making them believe the door was now open. And while separating families is no longer official government policy, a lot of the Trump policies have remained in place, like child detainment.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave a passionate joint speech in favor of global vaccine equity earlier today at the New York event for Global Citizen Live at the Great Lawn in Central Park.
The couple called for equal global vaccine distribution, imploring world leaders and pharmaceutical companies to treat access to the COVID-19 vaccine as “basic human rights.”
“Every single person on this planet has a fundamental right to get this vaccine. That’s the point. But that’s not happening.
And while in this country and many others you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world cannot,” Duchess Meghan said.
“They said many countries are ready to produce vaccines at home, yet they aren’t allowed to, because ultra wealthy pharmaceutical companies are not sharing the recipes to make them.
These countries have the means the ability and the workers to start manufacturing. All they are waiting for is the vaccine intellectual property to be waived and for the vaccine technology to be transferred over,” he said.
“And finally in our conversations, these experts shared that how the vaccine is distributed, and who it’s distributed to, should be left to independent international organizations who know exactly where the doses are most needed.
Just think about the millions of vaccines that have been discarded this year. That’s like throwing away life vests, when those around you are drowning.”
The couple also shared a cute moment during the serious speech, with the crowd cheering as Harry referred to Meghan as “my wife.”
They exchanged a brief embrace before he continued, “My wife and I believe that where you’re born should not dictate your ability to survive.”
They also stood hand in hand for the rest of the speech.
This pandemic will not end unless we act collectively with an unprecedented commitment to our shared humanity.
The vaccine must be distributed to everyone, everywhere. We cannot rest or truly recover until there is fair distribution to every corner of the world,” Harry said at the May event.
In between their lovey-dovey display, the couple preached to millions watching the event across the world about vaccine equity.
Harry said: “Look at all of us here 60,000 strong together in New York City! Are we prepared to do what’s necessary to end this pandemic?”
His wife Meg added: “It is so good to be back here with all of you. “Look, we know it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever, we get it, it’s a lot, and some people are just over it but if everyone’s over it, it will never be over.
“There is so much we can do today that can get us closer to ending this pandemic and that’s why we’re all here.
Have more humility. Remember you don’t know the limits of your own abilities. Successful or not, if you keep pushing beyond yourself, you will enrich your own life–and maybe even please a few strangers.-
Every time dumbass Donald Trump tries to steal the election, all he does is add more evidence and validation that he lost and Joe Biden won.
Donald Trump lost over 60 court cases trying to overturn the election. He lost each time he bullied state officials to overturn the election. He lost actual recounts and audits in multiple states. He lost when he tried to overturn the election through an insurrection and an attack on the United States Capitol.
All the evidence Trump lunatics claim they have has yet to be presented. Probably because those lunatics, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and the MyPillow fucker, don’t have any real evidence. There was no ballot switching by voting machines or Italian satellites. There was no interference by the Clintons or George Soros. There was no manipulation by poll workers or the dead Hugo Chavez. There was no massive voter fraud. There was…
Meghan Markle’s Monochrome Outfit Is Autumnal Perfection
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited a school on the second day of their New York trip.
On Friday, September 24, Meghan and Prince Harry stepped out for the second day of their tour of New York City, this time making an appearance at a Harlem elementary school. The duchess wore a relaxed burgundy suit, complete with a pair of burgundy stiletto pumps, making for a perfectly autumnal ensemble.
In videos from the event, she could be seen reading from her children’s book, The Bench, as students sat around her outdoors on the playground.
“I wrote this when we just had our little boy, and I haven’t read it to any other kids but you,” she told students.
