Today is THE Day …. “🗳 Midterms 2018 are Here …. Vote as if Your Life Depended on It …. I Voted Early 🗳 …. “!!


~~November 6, 2018~~ 

THE DAY HAS ARRIVED

THIS IS THE ONLY POST ABOUT THIS TOPIC I’M POSTING

I strongly believe that today marks one of the most critical and important election in my lifetime.

For me personally, the past two years have been a steady decline into the darkest belly of the America that I didn’t know.

If America continues down this path, the future of its citizens, the children, the environment and so much more will be on the line.

Most of all, the spirit of love, kindness, caring, cooperation will be replaced by hatred, racism, xenophobia, isolationism, nativism, tribalism.

VToday

VOTE AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT 

BECAUSE THE AMERICAN WAY, AS WE KNOW IT DOES

I won’t be watching news, polls, voting results today at all.

I will wait until Wednesday morning so see where the nation is heading.

PUERTO RICANS IN FLORIDA WILL VOTE

REMEMBER MARIA?

WE WON’T FORGET, WE WON’T FORGIVE!

‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger III …. “✈️🇺🇸 The Fabric of our Nation is Under Attack 🇺🇸✈️ …. “!!

VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL

~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger

MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!

I was always impressed by this American human being.

I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.

For sure, I watched the movie.

Yet, last night, as I watched  him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.

His gravitas is impressive.

Take a look!

The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.

“This is not the America I know and love.

We’re better than this.”

The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.

Sul3

“We cannot wait for someone to save us.

We must do it ourselves.

This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.

Sul4

Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”

“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.

“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”

Streisand revealed that she’d failed her written driver’s test three times while attempting to get her license renewed

“I was so nervous, a little bit like I am now because I have you in the car,” she told Corden. She also said that she hasn’t been driving a lot lately because her mind “is twirling” and she recently found herself driving the wrong way on the highway. “This is not what I need to hear right now,” her fellow passenger jokes.

“I thought, ‘That’s it, I’m not driving anymore,'” she said, adding, “But you’re lucky.”

“If this is how I go out, I’ll take it,” Corden jokes. “Corden died at the hands of Barbra Streisand. ‘Is she OK?’ She’s fine, thank god.”

When asked about the current political climate and how she’s coping, Streisand explained that that’s why she created the album, which is fittingly titled Walls.

Dialysis Treatment in Vieques, Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 A 10-12 Hour Commute for Life-Saving Treatment …. HuffPost Reports 🇵🇷 …. “!!

DIALYSIS TREATMENT

~VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO~

This is a topic which is very dear and close to my heart.

As a retired physician, I fully understand the process, the need for treatment, the underlying medical conditions and the meaning of life-saving treatment.

On the other hand, my only brother died of complications of chronic renal failure several years ago. In the aftermath of Hurricane María, I often thought about him and how he would manage to receive this three times a week treatment when the electrical power situation and the hospital care was so lacking in my country.

One year after Hurricane María, Puerto Ricans living in Vieques, go through harrowing, uncomfortable, tiring, exhausting and dangerous ways to receive their treatment.

This video explains their situation.

An American possession with this ‘quality of care’?

Laughable … not!!

In medicine, dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.

This is referred to as renal replacement therapy.

Dialysis Patients Are Still Trekking 12 Hours for Care After Hurricane María
Left without a hospital, some Puerto Ricans must travel by plane for lifesaving treatment

Hurricane María totaled Vieques’s hospital, which housed the island’s only dialysis clinic

That set off an ongoing crisis for patients with kidney failure who cannot survive without dialysis and for whom the thrice-weekly round trip to a dialysis center in Humacao on Puerto Rico’s main island, including treatment, takes at least 12 hours.
