IOTD …. Image of the day, #403 …. “Simple …. a resounding NO”!!


No-DT

~~December 8, 2015~~ 

THERE’S A LIMIT …. SAYING NO

I must set aside the light tone of the most recent IOTD.

I’d been trying for lighthearted images to go along the Christmas spirit and the holidays.

However, due to the most recent development from the Republican front-runner for the 2016 Presidency, I feel the need to say a few short words:

NO …. ENOUGH

The rest is up for you to find out and decide for yourself.

Earlier today, (December 7, 2015), the candidate currently leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” That was, of course, Donald Trump. As Jeffrey Goldberg just tweeted, “Donald Trump is now an actual threat to national security. He’s providing jihadists ammunition for their campaign to demonize the US.”

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS FOR ME

Thoughts for today, #288 .… “We Come in MANY Colors”!!

PUERTO RICANS 

“Our skins are different.

We have many colors.

We are all Puerto Rican (Borinqueños).

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people“.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans, Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as boricuas. “The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

WHAT’S UP WITH TRUMP?

“Yo no se que le pasa a Donald Trump por Alexis Valdes”

Alexis Valdés compone canción para Donald Trump

Alexis Valdés is a Cuban presenter and comedian. He wrote this song for the “donald” and presented on the “Nuevo Día” show in Telemundo.

It was not my intention to start my day with the “donald”. However, a friend tagged me on this video and I have to share.

Some may not understand because this is a Hispanic artist singing in Spanish about the “donald”.

It’s a hoot!

Just for you, Mr. Trump.

Those who understand will enjoy it.

Even if you don’t understand the tune is very catchy. HortyRex©

El presentador y humorista cubano, Alexis Valdés, compuso una canción dedicada a Donald Trump que presento en el programa “Nuevo Día” de Telemundo. Aquí les dejamos la canción de Alexis Valdés dedicada a Donald Trump.

I don’t know what’s wrong with Donald Trump

who wants to pick a fight with the Latinos

I don’t know what’s wrong with this man

who has chosen a bad pathway

He says he has many buildings

and he has many millions.

If he wants to used them better

he can run them by his kidneys ….

He’s not to blame, it’s not his fault

It’s his mother’s who spoiled him.

… and on, and on …. all on target.

This is what happens when you mess with Latinos.

We band together against the outside forces.

National Hispanic Heritage Month …. September 15 through October 15!!


HisMonth

~~September 16, 2015~~ 

Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 – October 15

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group’s heritage and culture.

Hispanic Heritage Week was approved by president Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and the length of it was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period (September 15 – October 15). It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988 on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

September 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. All declared independence in 1821. In addition, Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence days on September 16, September 18, and September 21, respectively.

Hispanic Heritage Month also celebrates the long and important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans in North America, starting with the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus on the morning of October 12, 1492.

A map of late 18th-century North America shows this presence, from the small outpost of San Francisco founded in the desolate wilderness of Alta California in 1776, through the Spanish province of Texas with its vaqueros (cowboys), to the fortress of St. Augustine, Florida — the first continuous European settlement in North America, founded in 1565, forty-two years before the English landed in Jamestown, Virginia.

At the end of the day …. “Ricky Martin’s Blistering Op-Ed: Donald Trump”!!


RM-Op

RICKY MARTIN … ON DONALD TRUMP

Read Ricky Martin’s Blistering Op-Ed About Donald Trump

EnE

By Angie Romero

Latin superstar Ricky Martin has put Donald Trump on blast. But rather than sticking to 140 characters, Martin went above and beyond by writing an op-ed for Univision following the presidential candidate’s very public squabble with the network’s news anchor Jorge Ramos at a campaign press event in Iowa Aug. 25.

The following is a translation of Martin’s Spanish-language op-ed

BLine

Jorge Ramos on Trump:

‘I Have a Right as a U.S. Citizen, Immigrant & Reporter’to Ask Questions’

BLine

“The fact that an individual like Donald Trump, a candidate for the presidency of the United States for the Republican party, has the audacity to continue to gratuitously harass the Latin community makes my blood boil.

When did this character assume he could make comments that are racist, absurd, and above all incoherent and ignorant about us Latinos?

From the beginning his intention was transparent: basically tell barbarities and lies to remain relevant in the public opinion, for votes or simply to stay on the media’s radar.

Yesterday’s episode against journalist Jorge Ramos, one of the most beloved and respected Latinos in world media, has gotten to the point of enough is enough.

Jorge Ramos was doing HIS JOB as a journalist at a press conference in which he appeared freely and democratically, representing one of the most important Latin television networks in the world and with the same right to freely exercise his profession as all other journalists.

But this new character in American politics verbally attacks him and ejects him from the press conference.

This action from Trump doesn’t surprise me, what does surprise me is that as Hispanics we continue to accept the aggression and accusations of people like him who attack our dignity.

Enough is enough!

If we are united for some things we should be united for others.

We have already shown the United States who we are and we cannot allow this behavior.

We have to defeat the power that Trump pretends to have over Latinos, anchored in low rhetoric and xenophobic speech, which his campaign team is convinced works for him.

Let’s show that our Latin race is to be respected, let’s not allow a political hopeful to plant his campaign in insult and humiliation.

Let’s demand respect for those first generations of Latinos who came to the United States and opened a path for us. We have fought for every right that we have today.

Xenophobia as a political strategy is the lowest you can go in search of political power.

This is an issue that unites us and we need to battle it together, not just for us but for the evolution of humanity and those to come.”

Ricky Martin

NBC fires Donald Trump over ‘derogatory statements’ about immigrants

BY JOSHUA BARAJAS

*perfect example of karma at work*

NBC announced Monday that the network was cutting ties with Donald Trump over the Republican presidential candidate’s recent statements about Mexican immigrants.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the network said in a statement.

The decision effectively cancels the annual airings of the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, which are co-owned by Trump and NBC. The statement also said Trump won’t appear as the host in the reality show “The Apprentice” this fall, a choice made by Trump to allow more time to focus on his presidential run.

And although Trump is the producer of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” NBC said the show will continue without its mainstay host.

NBC’s announcement comes after a Change.org petition of more than 200,000 signatures asked the network to fire the mogul over a string of comments that have portrayed Mexican immigrants, among other things, as “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people” at his inaugural campaign speech.
