July 4, 2017 …. “😳 Just Another Day …. first time in my life …. 😳 …. !””


~~July 3, 2017~~

WE ALL KNOW THE MEANING OF THIS DATE

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776.

~Wikipedia~


There’s always been a big celebration for this special American holiday.

I’m finding it difficult to get in the spirit of things.

I believe that there’s a collective sense of depression in this country since November 2016.

My therapist and I talk plenty about this topic. 

It’s been interesting and, not totally surprising, that two respectable, knowledgeable and amazing fellow bloggers have posted to the effect that this year the sense of euphoria, happiness and celebration has dimmed significantly.

I join them in that feeling.

I thought is was only me and it’s somewhat redeeming that others may share my feelings.

Sane Americans who possess a sense of empathy, compassion, pride, accomplishment, morality, and so much more, may feel the same.

I HAS A SAD!

FINALLY FREE

The long awaited day has arrived.

His sentence was commuted by President Obama in January 2017.

He was released home then under home arrest.

Home arrest ends today.

He’s a totally free man … to walk the soil of his beloved island, Puerto Rico, without any restrictions!

Fellow Boricua, we celebrate with you.

Outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama commuted Lopez’ sentence in January 2017. He was sent home then but under the condition that he remain under house arrest.

Expired today, May 17, according to a list of commutations announced by the White House.

Puerto Rico’s independence leader and longest held political prisoner in the U.S. from Latin America will be free.

The United States government announced Tuesday the release of Oscar Lopez Rivera, who has been imprisoned in the U.S. for 36 years for his struggle to free Puerto Rico from U.S. colonial rule.

Oscar López Rivera is now a former US held Puerto Rican political prisoner of war.

IT’S OFFICIAL

I’m not a baseball fan at all.

However, since Martin, my friend from the Netherlands and Mike, a local friend, told me about this Baseball Classic and how well Puerto Rico was performing, I jumped on board and followed the results.

Tonight the winner wins!

I’m rooting for Puerto Rico, my country, of course!

New York Times … “Airs Commercial Promising Truth in the Time of Drumpf During Oscars …. 2017 …. “!!

THE TRUTH IS HARD

“The truth is more important now than ever.”

The ad is only 30 seconds long.

Words have strength and convey meaning and reality.

So much meaning compressed in 30 seconds.

Take a look!

“The Truth Is Hard” is the newspaper’s first television commercial since 2010

Drumpf’s Tweet

For first time the failing @nytimes will take an ad (a bad one) to help save its failing reputation. Try reporting accurately & fairly!

6:42 AM – 26 Feb 2017

Unfortunately, the ‘so-called president‘ seems to have missed some of the truth.

Just as “overrated” actress Meryl Streep received a standing ovation at the Oscars, the Times has reported increased subscriptions and is not, actually failing.

“As it appears in … full read/full credt”

Ashley Judd’s EPIC “Nasty Woman” Speech …. “Women’s March, Washington, DC …. “!!

~~January 26, 2017~~ 

NINA DONOVAN’S POEM

I’ve always loved this woman.

Guess I love her more now.

I saw this video during the weekend and it really left and impression.

Just think … a 19 years old girl from Tennessee wrote these words!

There’s hope for the new generation.

Take a look!

Michael Moore was in for a surprise during the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday when Ashley Judd interrupted him to read a politically charged poem

“I am Ashley Judd,” she declared as Moore reacted in shock, “and I am a feminist.”

She proceeded to recite a poem written by a 19-year-old named Nina Donovan from Tennessee. The contents of the writing included references to Trump’s election, mass incarceration, LGBT rights, the wage gap, and more relevant issues.

At one point, the poem compares Trump to Adolf Hitler.

The poem repeated the refrain “I am not as nasty as…”

at one point attacking Trump’s relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.

“I’m not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol,” Judd said.
