TRUMP VERSUS THE WORLD

America’s reputation is being damaged by its own president

John Oliver, several dinosaurs, and the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus remind the world that our country is … complicated.

This is one of my favorite shows.

The best way to make it through these days is with humor. John is a master at it.

This is a very serious situation … yet it’s so funny.

Totally pathetic and worrisome.

It’s a bit long but worth your while.

Composite Photo …. “🇵🇷 Honoring my country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight. This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.

Jose

~En La Brecha~
Poema

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Salsa Remix of “Almost Like Praying
The song was first released in October 2017 to raise funds for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

GoldSwirl

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

At 10:30am this morning, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda released a salsa remix of “Almost Like Praying,” his single benefiting the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund for hurricane recovery and rebuilding initiatives in Puerto Rico. Spanish Broadcasting System teamed up with Miranda for a world-premiere radio launch of the remix in New York (Mega 97.9FM), Miami (El Nuevo Zol 106.7FM), and Puerto Rico (Estereotempo 96.5FM).

Miranda himself introduced the single, followed by an interview live from the SBS studios in New York City.

“The benefit single ‘Almost Like Praying’ has had tremendous success with audiences worldwide,” said Miranda. “As we now continue to help establish long-term self-sustainable initiatives to rebuild Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to bring this new version to Salsa-music fans. Although it has been over four months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the island still needs much help to get its most basic infrastructure up and running – including electricity, roads and bridges, healthcare and other vital programs.”

The original “Almost Like Praying” was released for download and streaming on October 6, 2017, and within its first week, hit No. 1 in digital sales in 17 countries. One hundred percent of the proceeds have gone to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund, which has sponsored hundreds of initiatives to assist in the relief, recovery, and now rebuilding of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory since 1898.

Super Bowl LII National Anthem Performance 🇺🇸 …. P!nk …. There was a Time when I got Chills 🇺🇸 …. “!!


PinkB

~~February 5, 2018~~ 

P!NK

I read somewhere that P!nk watched Whitney Houston’s performance of the national anthem.

It was a famous rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991.

Since then P!nk wanted to sing then anthem at the super bowl.

… and that she did!

There was a time when listening to this anthem gave me chills.

Not anymore.

The reason I post this today is because P!nk sang at the superbowl and killed it.

Enjoy!

GoldSwirl

P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.

This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.

Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu

Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.

Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).

She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.

Government Shutdown …. ” 🙄 The Blame Game …. from the White House Main Phone Line 🙄 …. “!!


TShut

~~January 22, 2018~~ 

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

What happens when you call the White House?

You get a voicemail blaming the Democrats for the government shutdown.

White House Voicemail Blames Democrats for Government Shutdown

If you call the White House’s main number, (202) 456-1111, this is the message that you will hear.

Never in my lifetime, in my humble opinion, had ‘so-called adults’, expressed themselves with wanton answers and diminished the position they held.

The video says it all. 

You judge for yourself!
