~Obamacare vs. Affordable Care Act~

~~Published on Jan 17, 2017~~

Back in 2013 we conducted an experiment on our show. We went out on the street and asked people which was better: Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act.

Obamacare is of course just a nickname for the Affordable Care Act. They’re the same thing.

So with all the attention now on this subject, we decided to ask this question again to see if Americans have learned anything over the last three years.

Thoughts for today, #369 …. “#DemocraticWhores …. Ouch”!!


~~April 18, 2016~~ 


Better get our asses in line and stop this insane bickering and worse attitudes between the supporters of the two candidates in the race who are real, have common sense, experience, education and the best interest of this country than any other.

We have already seen enough of the “others”!

There isn’t ONE who is a saint, who is “virginal”, who is untouched by corporate America.

They all have houses made of glass.

Make sure that we stand united.

There’s strength in union.

Divided we fall!

…. and what are we going to fall to?

We don’t even want to imagine.



People Outraged Over the “Democratic Whore” Comment Made at Bernie Sanders’s Rally

April 14, 2016


Bernie Sanders is distancing himself from comments made by one of his surrogates at a rally at Washington Square Park on Wednesday night.

Dr. Paul Song is a physician and activist for universal healthcare, and before Sanders took the stage in New York City, Song told the crowd:

“Medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate Democratic whores, who are beholden to big pharma and the private-insurance industry instead of us,” according to NPR.

After pressure to denounce Song’s “whore” comment came from many Hillary Clinton supporters, including her communications director, Sanders tweeted that the comment was “inapporpriate and insensitive.”

Something to think about …. “The Root of What Is Wrong”!!


~~December 18, 2015~~


Paul Edward Farmer (born October 26, 1959) is an American anthropologist and physician who is best known for his humanitarian work providing suitable health care to rural and under-resourced areas in developing countries, beginning in Haiti. Co-founder of an international social justice and health organization, Partners In Health (PIH), he is known as “the man who would cure the world,” as described in the book, Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder.

In May 2009 he was named chairman of Harvard Medical School’s Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, succeeding Jim Yong Kim, his longtime friend and collaborator. Kim was appointed as of 2012President of the World Bank. On December 17, 2010, Harvard University’s President, Drew Gilpin Faust, and the President and Fellows of Harvard College, named Farmer as a University Professor, the highest honor that the University can bestow on one of its faculty members.

Farmer resides in Kigali, Rwanda as of 2008. He is board certified in internal medicine and infectious disease. He is editor-in-chief of Health and Human Rights Journal.

Two years ago today …. it suddenly hit me!!


~February 22, 2015~~ 

I’m originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. I currently live in Florida – since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979.

I worked for Puerto Rico’s health system until 1985. At this time, I’m happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I also worked for the government of Puerto Rico from 1979 through 1985 …. for a total of almost 40 years as a physician.



… and this is why I’m here!!

Writing Process Blog Tour …. On the “road” again!!

~~June 30, 2014~~ 

Thank you very much for inviting me to this great blog tour Patty!

You can find Just Patty at:


The questions are:

What are you currently working on? 

Unlike some of my fellow bloggers who are published authors, I select the topics that I post about in a very informal way. I look at the news, remember special holidays, keep track of celebrities – death anniversaries, birthdays – celebrate important days in history, review topics related to animals, music – remembering old hits and posting about new artists and their new songs, consider causes like autism, Earth day, Oceans Day. The environment is a very important subject for me as well as medical issues: medical conditions and adverse effects to the human body due to GMOs, ChemTrails, etc.

Spiritual topics attract me. I try to post inspirational and motivational posts to uplift the human spirit.

From my blog’s “ABOUT”:

“My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I’m open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability.”


“Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one …. since we ALL are ONE!!

The future looks bright and promising!!!”

I also write from personal experience. I write about my family and my friends’ families. I have written about two good friends who have lost dear ones. People’s stories inspire me. The important topics for them inspire me also. 

An idea may come to me through a conversation.

How does your work differ from others of its genre?

This is a bit difficult to answer because I don’t consider I have a “genre”. I think that what I do in the blogosphere is unique only in the aspect that it’s written by one individual. There are so many excellent bloggers out there. I see their work everyday. All of them are unique.

I have learned many things from those I follow and read. The topics are as varied as there are bloggers. The same goes for the style and looks of each blog.

Maybe I can say that my work differs from others because of the passion I put into it. However, I feel the passion that other bloggers/writers have.


Why do you write what you do?

I retired from a full time job after almost 40 years working as a physician. During those many years, I educated patients about their conditions and how to manage them. I supervised interns and residents, worked with nurses, offered informal lectures …. always with the intent to “educate”.

My intention has always been to share what I know and what I learn about. I post to educate in any way possible. My desire is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need.

I write about vacation time, fun time and serious time.

Power of Words

How does your writing process work?

I think that my writing process is very disorganized. LOL … many times I sit in front of the computer wondering what to write about. The google doodles inspire me. Sometimes, postings on Facebook direct me to a topic. New videos on YouTube also lead me down the path to a post. I like to post about the movies that I see and include the “trailer” to motivate the reader.

Bloggers who I read and follow are an inspiration. 

Like I’ve said … a bit of everything. Nothing is planned. 


I have chosen a few bloggers whose work I love and who are great people as well. Take a look!

Cher ….

Arlen …

Valentine ….

Sir Jeremy ….

Radonna ….

Pack your bags guys, we are going on tour! 

~~On The Road Again~~

~Willie Nelson~

~Published on Dec 5, 2012~

“Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see again

And I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again –
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way”

~~May 27, 2014~~

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was a soldier, physician and poet.

John McCrae was a poet and physician from Guelph, Ontario. He developed an interest in poetry at a young age and wrote throughout his life. His earliest works were published in the mid-1890s in Canadian magazines and newspapers. McCrae’s poetry often focused on death and the peace that followed.

At the age of 41, McCrae enrolled with the Canadian Expeditionary Force following the outbreak of the First World War. He had the option of joining the medical corps because of his training and age, but he volunteered instead to join a fighting unit as a gunner and medical officer. It was his second tour of duty in the Canadian military. He had previously fought with a volunteer force in the Second Boer War. He considered himself a soldier first; his father was a military leader in Guelph and McCrae grew up believing in the duty of fighting for his country and empire.Border1

McCrae fought in the second battle of Ypres in the Flanders region of Belgium where the German army launched one of the first chemical attacks in the history of war. They attacked the Canadian position with chlorine gas on April 22, 1915, but were unable to break through the Canadian line, which held for over two weeks. In a letter written to his mother, McCrae described the battle as a “nightmare”: “For seventeen days and seventeen nights none of us have had our clothes off, nor our boots even, except occasionally. In all that time while I was awake, gunfire and rifle fire never ceased for sixty seconds ….

And behind it all was the constant background of the sights of the dead, the wounded, the maimed, and a terrible anxiety lest the line should give way.” Alexis Helmer, a close friend, was killed during the battle on May 2. McCrae performed the burial service himself, at which time he noted how poppies quickly grew around the graves of those who died at Ypres.

The next day, he composed the poem while sitting in the back of an ambulance.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.



As we end this memorable weekend, we have honored those who served in the military and who offered the ultimate sacrifice. They went into the service and didn’t come back. They lost their lives in the line of duty, lost their future. Their lives were cut short. The families lost a son/daughter, a father, a brother/sister.

It is now time to end this madness of the continued state of perpetual war we live in so many foreign lands. It’s time to reconcile. It’s time to bring them back. It’s time for healing and connecting with the humanity of life and family. 

It’s time to act. It’s time to return these soldiers back to their loved one.


Bring Him Home (from Les Misérables)


Words to Bring Him Home

God on high
Hear my prayer
In my need
You have always been there

He is young
He’s afraid
Let him rest
Heaven blessed.
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.

He’s like the son I might have known
If God had granted me a son.
The summers die
One by one
How soon they fly
On and on
And I am old
And will be gone.

Bring him peace
Bring him joy
He is young
He is only a boy

You can take
You can give
Let him be
Let him live
If I die, let me die
Let him live
Bring him home
Bring him home
Bring him home.

We ALL are ONE!!
