BUILDING A WALL

Tecate Proposed A ‘Beer Wall’ During The Presidential Debate

For most of the 2016 presidential election, Republican nominee Donald Trump has boasted about his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and force Mexico to pay for it.

But after Trump got cold feet and didn’t ask Mexico’s president Enrique Peña Nieto to pay for it during a meeting last month, the promise has fallen from the headlines. During the first presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, a Mexican beer company put the issue front and center with a hilarious commercial.

Monday night, September 26, Tecate, a Mexican beer brand owned by Heineken, reminded Americans of Trump’s divisive promise by running an ad during the presidential debate on Fox News, Univision, and Telemundo networks. The ad mocked Trump’s plan by proposing a three-foot-high wall on the U.S.-Mexico border that invites people on both sides to come together over cold cervezas.

“The time has come for a wall. A tremendous wall. The best wall. The Tecate beer wall,” the ad says. “The wall that brings us together.

This wall might be small, but it’s going to be huge.”

Tecate sees the ad as a positive way to engage consumers during a divisive political season.

Tecate is using beer as the great unifier in developing a fun, lighthearted and clever commercial where friends from two bordering countries share a couple of Tecates over a wall,” Felix Palau, vice president of the company, said in a press release.

Tecate is acknowledging an ongoing conversation, while raising a glass to beer’s uncanny ability to bring people together in a positive way.”

At the end of the day …. “First Pride Flag Launched Into Outer Space …. “!!

~~September 30, 2016~~ 

PRIDE FLAG FLIES IN SPACE

The universe is now LGBT-friendly!

Planting Peace’s latest display of solidarity with the queer community involves a Pride flag, a high altitude balloon and a GoPro camera.

The group, which regularly launches social activism campaigns to raise awareness about issues like LGBT rights and de-worming children in developing countries, used the balloon to elevate a rainbow flag up through the Earth’s atmosphere.

It eventually reached its peak altitude approximately 21.1 miles above the planet.

The flag remained airborne, floating in outer space for just over three hours before making its descent back to Earth, in what Planting Peace says is a symbolic declaration of the universe as an LGBT-friendly space.

rbline

“It was an honor to send the first Pride flag into space, and it provided a wonderful opportunity to show that Planting Peace will not stop fighting for LGBTQ rights until all sexual and gender minorities experience full, fundamental rights in every corner of the universe.”

“The backdrop of space gave us a stunning, inspiring and peaceful canvas for our message of hope to our LGBTQ family.

I would love for LGBTQ children who are struggling to see this, and look up to the stars and remember that the universe shines brightly for them, and they are not alone.”

Aaron Jackson, President of Planting Peace, told The Huffington Post.

rbline

Over the last three years, Planting Peace has engaged in a number of high-profile displays of LGBT visibility and activism.

The nonprofit created The Equality House, a rainbow-colored building across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church compound in Topeka, Kansas, in 2013 and purchased another home nearby earlier this year to create the Transgender Pride House.

These houses stand in opposition to the Church’s hate ― both literally and figuratively ― and operate as safe spaces for queer people in the area.

ALICIA MACHADO AND DONALD TRUMP

I decided a while back that I was going to stop posting related to MR. Trump.

As you’ve seen today, I haven’t been able to do so.

The reason for continuing posting about him is because I think that he’s dangerously close to the White House.

That really concerns me.

I’m an American citizen by virtue of being born in Puerto Rico.

My nationality is Puerto Rican.

However, this man could totally and completely destabilize the nation and the entire world.

People need to know.

It amazes me how far he’s been able to get in this presidential ‘race’.

It seems that those that follow him are blind, entranced and hypnotized.

I can’t fathom a Trump presidency.

I will vote for the winner of last night’s debate.

Hoping that the best woman win in the end.

Trump attacks former Miss Universe who ‘gained a massive amount of weight’ and had ‘attitude’

NEW YORK

Donald Trump launched a deeply personal attack Tuesday morning, September 27, on Alicia Machado, the 1996 Miss Universe winner who has accused him of calling her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” because she’s Latina.

Hillary Clinton cited these comments in the final minutes of the first presidential debate on Monday night, September 26, along with other unflattering comments Trump has made about women. Soon after the debate, Clinton posted a video on Twitter featuring Machado speaking Spanish as she describes how Trump would call her “fat” and “ugly” and how she was afraid of him.

The ad also features footage from the 1990’s of Trump saying in an interview that Machado went from 117 or 118 pounds to 160 or 170 and commenting:

“So this is somebody that likes to eat.”

goldswirl

“This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers,” Clinton said, as Trump shouted out that he never said those things, “who has said women don’t deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men.

And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest.

He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.”

Native American tribe takes oil fight to the United Nations 

Dave Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, waits to speak against the Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access oil pipeline during the Human Rights Council session at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Sept. 20, 2016.

CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA

The simmering showdown here between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline began as a legal battle.

It has turned into a movement.

We are ALL connected through NATURE!! 

Over the past few weeks, thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have traveled to this central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow and show solidarity with a tribe they think is once again receiving a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.

That river is the source of water for the reservation’s 8,000 residents.

Any leak, tribal leaders argue, would cause immediate and irreparable harm. And tribal leaders point to what they consider a double standard, saying that the pipeline was originally going to cross the Missouri north of Bismarck, the state capital, but was rerouted because of powerful opposition that did not want a threat to the water supply there.

The tribe says it also is fighting the pipeline’s path because, even though it does not cross the reservation, it traverses sacred territory taken away from the tribe in a series of treaties that have been forced upon it over the past 150 years.

She sits down ‘Between Two Ferns’ for her most memorable interview yet.

Hillary Clinton sat down with actor Zach Galifiankis for the web series

“Between Two Ferns.”

Halfway through the interview, Clinton said,

“I really regret doing this.”

The “Hangover” star asked Clinton questions like “As Secretary, how many words per minute could you type? And how does President Obama like his coffee?

Like himself? Weak?”

Clinton responded, “You know, Zach, those are really out of date questions.

You need to get out more.”

But that didn’t stop the actor from asking Clinton what would happen if she got pregnant while she was president.

Randy Lewis

Half a century ago, the Country Music Assn. in Nashville handed out awards for the first time. So began a tradition that continues to grow five decades on.

To mark the occasion, the CMA has assembled its own all-star video, “Forever Country,” which premiered Tuesday night, September 20, on “Dancing With the Stars” and features 30 current and veteran country acts.

Among the participants: Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill, Kacey Musgraves, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban ,Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Alan Jackson.

They’ve teamed  with the rest of the “Forever Country” participants in a mash-up of three classics: Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” Parton’s “I Will Always Love  You” and John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

Story behind the song

We’ve all had that phone call. That email or that message. That conversation.

Bad news.

We’re all struggling with something – a debilitating weakness or illness. Or someone we love is barely holding on. We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments!

We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But just because what sells, what goes “viral,” or what gets attention may try to drown out the good in the world, it doesn’t mean that goodness is gone. Just because choruses of controversy and scandal shout louder than quiet symphonies of service, it doesn’t mean that inside most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.

Media can make the world look bleak.

They’ve given themselves this job description, in part because there’s a darker side on the surface of human nature that feeds on fear and cynicism. But deep down, we are beings of light. And in the end, since darkness is merely the absence of light, light will inevitably overcome dark.

This is the essence of hope. And the essence of this song.

“No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay.”

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right.

And as the Psalm says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”

goldswirl

In the meantime, there are so many more things to hope for and to work at while we yearn for the outcome we want so badly – more gratitude for what we have, more love for those we’ve taken for granted, more faith in ourselves and those we hold dear, and more confidence in a Divine purpose.

We felt like the best way to spread the message of this song was to supplement our standard classically-influenced instrumental niche with a more pop-driven tune featuring Al’s superb vocal skills.

As Oscar Hammerstein once said:

“It is a modern tragedy that despair has so many spokesmen, and hope so few.”

Please share this song with someone you think might need it today.

Thank you!
