A Message from my Cousin …. “🇵🇷 Inés …. from the Ground …. Mr. President 🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~September 26, 2017~~ 



I have family in Puerto Rico.

I haven’t been able to contact all of them but slowly news are coming out.

My cousin Inés lives in the metro, San Juan area.

She wrote a message to the leader of the United States.

I think she specifies, word by word, what has been happening with Puerto Rico due to Hurricane María and to many events which took place before the devastating hurricane.

There are plenty of reasons why Puerto Rico is in the situation it is.

The hand of the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A. can be seen everywhere.

Here are her words.



Yes, Mr. President, you are absolutely right, infrastructure was not in very good shape to begin with.

(I think those were your precise words!)

María has put it bluntly.

There are no materials and no money to invest in infrastructure. A much reduced work force, 30k government employees fired with Law 7 many who worked for water and electricity. Forced or suggested early retirement for many thousands. Massive migration. Yes, that poor little Caribbean Island where you built and then declared bankrupt your mini golf playground.

Where are you playing now?

No more Dorado for you.


And then, PROMESA, H.R. 5278 , and your Supervisory Board, la ‘fucking Junta’, milking our people, putting your billionaire hedge fund holder friends before the our people. And then, our brilliant government, adequately stupid politicians working for their own benefits, years of blatant corruption making the same few richer and richer.

Meanwhile our retirement plans collapsed and our elders have to spend their little money on your lover-priced pharmaceutical products.

Our University in peril of imminent collapse and our working students enslaved by your $4.25 hour wage law.

By any chance, are you trying to strangle us?

Your 3.5 million brown skin, second class citizens that consume all your Walmart goods and make you want to dance Despacito?

Oh we’re good, because we take abuse submissively!


And then more, we give your dollar abundant Americanos the most beautifully attractive tax incentives to come and live in this exuberant island, little by little displace our city population and buy cheap property from desperate Boricuas. A trip to Supermax will clearly show the growth of this blond population.

Ah, such an amazing paradise, a fiscal paradise for your rich!

Mr. President, you and your abuses and your imperialistic, racist government are responsible for every single life lost, for every single fallen tree, for every coffee bean that will not feed a family any time soon.

I truly hope you don’t try to claim your debt anymore.

Every cent must go to our reconstruction.


All the repressed wrath of all the abused nations, all the frustration and anger and hunger and fear of the world will be knocking at your door.

Stop your senseless tweeting and GET TO WORK.

Show the world you are a worthy representative of your nation’s fathers’ principles of freedom and justice!

Or are you?

Inés M.

A picture says a thousand words …. “This one, a cartoon, screams, #25 …. Matthew is on the way …. PREPARE …. “!!


~~October 6, 2016~~ 


At the time of this writing, the morning is gray, overcast and rain is scant.

So far, only drizzling.

There’s an ominous feeling in the atmosphere, almost chilling.

I don’t know how long I’ll be able to post.

Will return to usual ‘programming‘ hopefully Saturday morning.

It will all depend on the effects of this massive hurricane.

I’ve been through several of them before.

Believe you me, it’s not a fun experience.

The worst of the storm, in my area, is expected to start this afternoon around 5 PM.

The peak is expected around 2 AM.

By Friday afternoon, hopefully, it should be gone, continuing the trek up north.

I will return as soon as conditions permit.



Oct 6 2016 08:15 AM EDT

Hurricane Matthew is set to deliver a devastating blow to eastern Florida starting Thursday night,October 6, will hammer areas farther north up the coast in Georgia and the Carolinas Friday into the weekend.

An important point to make is that landfall does NOT need to take place for the worst impacts to come ashore. The strongest winds and most drilling surge will come to the coast in the eyewall, which surrounds the eye.

Landfall occurs when the calmest portion of the eye, or the center, comes ashore. Hurricane conditions will come ashore even if the center stays 20 to 30 miles offshore.



Timing For Matthew

Life-Threatening Storm Surge, Battering Waves, Major Beach Erosion

Damaging Hurricane-Force Winds Likely

Rainfall Flooding, Tornadoes

Matthew’s to Eventually Make a Loop Off the Southeast Coast?

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. My ancestry, my heritage, my blood …. Taína …. “!!


~~October 3, 2016~~ 


My ancestry, my heritage, my blood

By Robert M. Poole

If you have ever paddled a canoe, napped in a hammock, savored a barbecue, smoked tobacco or tracked a hurricane across Cuba, you have paid tribute to the Taíno, the Indians who invented those words long before they welcomed Christopher Columbus to the New World in 1492.

Their world, which had its origins among the Arawak tribes of the Orinoco Delta, gradually spread from Venezuela across the Antilles in waves of voyaging and settlement begun around 400 B.C. Mingling with people already established in the Caribbean, they developed self-sufficient communities on the island of Hispaniola, in what is now Haiti and the Dominican Republic; in Jamaica and eastern Cuba; in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the Bahamas.

They cultivated yuca, sweet potatoes, maize, beans and other crops as their culture flourished, reaching its peak by the time of European contact.

Some scholars estimate the Taíno population may have reached more than three million on Hispaniola alone as the 15th century drew to a close, with smaller settlements elsewhere in the Caribbean. Whatever the number, the Taíno towns described by Spanish chroniclers were densely settled, well organized and widely dispersed.


“Very few Indians were left after 50 years,” said Ricardo Alegría, a Puerto Rican historian and anthropologist I interviewed before his death in July 2011. He had combed through Spanish archives to track the eclipse of the Taíno.

“Their culture was interrupted by disease, marriage with Spanish and Africans, and so forth, but the main reason the Indians were exterminated as a group was sickness,” he told me.

He ran through the figures from his native island:

“By 1519, a third of the aboriginal population had died because of smallpox. You find documents very soon after that, in the 1530’s, in which the question came from Spain to the governor. ‘How many Indians are there? Who are the chiefs?’

The answer was none. They are gone.

Alegría paused before adding: “Some remained probably … but it was not that many.”

David Letterman …. a tribute to an old friend!!


~~August 20, 2014~~


Letterman said he “had no idea that the man was in pain”

Letterman showed clips from Williams’ appearances on his show, saying he’d been friends with Williams for 38 years. Among the clips The Late Show trotted out: a young Letterman’s cameo on Mork & Mindy.

“What I will add here is that, beyond being a very talented man and a good friend and a gentleman, I am sorry I, like everybody else, had no idea that the man was in pain and the man was suffering,” Letterman said.


Letterman’s show was on break the week when Williams died, so this was his first episode to address his friend’s passing. Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers all honored Williams in tributes of their own last week.


“Two things would happen, because Robin was on the program,” Letterman told his audience. “One, I didn’t have to do anything; all I had to do was sit here and watch the machine. And, two, people would watch; if they knew Robin was on the show, the viewership would go up, because they wanted to see Robin.

And, believe me, that wasn’t just true of television. I believe that was true of the kind of guy he was. People were drawn to him because of this electricity.”


Letterman said the two befriended each other 38 years ago at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, a hotbed at the time for emerging comedians, including former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, Elayne Boosler and Jimmy Walker. Letterman recalled how it was common for comics to make fun of new acts at the venue, and prepared to do the same when an emcee announced a new comedian from Scotland was about to take the stage.

“We were feeling pretty smug about our position right away, because the material is going to be haggis, and that kind of crap,” Letterman recalled. “So, we’re relaxed, we’re ready to go, and all of a sudden, he comes up on stage, and — you know what it is — it’s like nothing we had ever seen before, nothing we had ever imagined before.”

The comedians, he said, knew they were watching someone special.


“We’re like morning dew; he comes in like a hurricane. And now, the longer he’s onstage, the worse we feel about ourselves,” Letterman said, with a laugh, “because it’s not stopping.

And then he finishes, and I thought, ‘Well, that’s it, they’re going to have to put an end to show business, because what could happen after this?’”
