THE AWFUL AFTERMATH

(I FOUND THE VIDEO)

~AMERICAN CITIZENS IN CRISIS~

Last Sunday, November 5, CBS 60 Minutes reported on the aftermath of Hurricane María. I watched it and my heart continued to sink.

I was looking for the video to share it with you. I found it through Facebook.

Today is the 53rd day after the hurricane hit. 

Progress has been slow and the spotlight of the main stream media has moved on to other events.

Let the video speak for itself!

(I don’t agree with all the provided in the video. The visual are all true).

Puerto Ricans in the island have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. Due to a multitude of factors, some say the lights won’t be coming back on anytime soon.

It’s safe to say that of all the places in the country, the one that is suffering the most right now is the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Most people probably don’t think of it as being part of the United States, but the people who live in Puerto Rico certainly do. It’s been a territory since 1898, and its 3.4 million people are U.S. citizens.

For the past 53 days, most of them have been without power, the longest blackout in American history.

FEMA says it has distributed more food and water there than any disaster its ever been involved in. Damages could reach $90 billion and Puerto Rico is already bankrupt. There has been some finger pointing about the speed and effectiveness of the relief and recovery effort, but the misery there has much more to do with nature.

When Hurricane María arrived on the morning of September 20th, it was largely unheralded and never projected to hit the continental United States, which was already suffering hurricane fatigue. But the storm tore into Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 155 miles an hour and then began a slow 12-hour crawl across the countryside, with the center of the storm enveloping the entire island.

“I think the majority of people will hope to have their power up in — in January, maybe February.

I would predict there’s some people on that last mile that are gonna be close to spring or summer before they get those very, very last houses.”

MEET BADASS PUERTO RICAN WOMEN PROVING HIM WRONG

By Lisa Marie Segarra

The series of tweets against Puerto Rican officials began when Trump said Mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulín Cruz has been “nasty” to him after after allegedly being asked to act that way by Democrats.

MY HERITAGE

WHERE I COME FROM

Hola, My name is Horty Rexach and just so you know, I was born and raised in Puerto Rico.

My parents met and married in New York City in the 1930’s.

They were from a Beautiful Island of Beautiful People in the middle of the ocean. surrounded by water.

Oh! … and we are Americans!!

Yes, American Citizens!
We speak Spanish and English as well as Spanglish!

Our little island, surrounded by big water, contributes more service members per capita than any other state in the union. We have astronauts, scientists, a Supreme Court Justice, Medal of Honor recipients, legendary sports figures, scholars, Oscar winners actors and actresses, internationally known musicians, and many, many more distinguished citizens who call our little beautiful island their Mother and Father Land.

We are a GORGEOUS and an interesting mix of Native Taíno Indians, Spaniards, African and other European blood that gives us our incredible drive to survive. 

I’m Puerto Rican and I’m damn proud of it!!!

Drumpf …. “Starts Erasing LGBTQ Americans in First 100 Days …. GLAAD …. “!!


TLGBT

~~April 28, 2017~~ 

TOTAL DISASTER 

There wasn’t a day during the presidential campaign that I saw where he was headed.

Every day I was feeling more and more distress.

I couldn’t. and still can’t understand, how anyone in the LGBTQ community could stand with this man.

How could anyone trust him with the fragile and far reaching results of decades of long advocacy and effort for our community?

It was and is still beyond me.

And, I wasn’t proven wrong!

~Drumpf’s first 100 days have been a total disaster for LGBT people~

Drumpf is marking his first 100 days as President of the United States, and he is not off to a great start for LGBT equality.

The Republican Presidential candidate took office in January following an electoral college victory over Hillary Clinton, who won 3 million more ballots in the popular vote than Drumpf overall.

Drumpf was once considered a moderate on LGBT rights, but since he took power in January, there has been a rapid shift in policy on LGBT issues.

~GLAAD~

GLAAD (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is a U.S. non-governmental media monitoring organization founded by LGBT people in the media. Before March 2013, the name “GLAAD” had been an acronym for “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation”, but became the primary name due to its inclusiveness of bisexual and transgender issues.

Its stated mission, in part, is to “amplify the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively.”

~~President Trump Starts Erasing LGBTQ Americans in First 100 Days~~

~~Published on Apr 28, 2017~~

Since the moment Drumpf won the 2016 election, GLAAD’s main priority has been to hold the incoming administration accountable on any potential anti-LGBTQ policies it may try to enforce.

From erasing any mentions of LGBTQ Americans from government websites to deleting LGBTQ people from the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census, Drumpf and his administration have proven to us that they are no friends of LGBTQ Americans and in fact are trying to remove us from the fabric of this nation.
