What Does Toad From Mario Kart Look Like Then?

Toad  is a fictional character who primarily appears in Nintendo’s Mario franchise. Created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, he is portrayed as a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom and is one of Princess Peach’s most loyal attendants; constantly working on her behalf.

The Twitterverse is having a collective meltdown over the fact that Mario Kart became a trending topic today for all the wrong reasons.

No, the beloved Super Mario-themed racing game franchise is not getting the 9th installment, not yet anyway. Stormy Daniel’s remarks attracted online attention really fast, particularly the fact that she compared Drumpf’s penis to the good citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.

Carmen Yulín Cruz …. “🇵🇷 Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico …. The Voice of her Struggling Island and the Puerto Rican People 🇵🇷 …. “!!

I have to confess that I didn’t know anything about this woman.

The first time I heard about her was during those terrible days after Hurricane María battered my country. I live in the mainland. I’ve been away from home since 1999.

She became the voice for those in the diaspora as we hungered for news about our country.

To this day you will hear negative comments about her.

She didn’t do her job, she took advantage of the situation to benefit her own political ambitions, she forgot about the people of San Juan, she’s posing because she wants to run for governor, she’s a socialist, she aligns herself with Puerto Rico’s independence while pretending to be a member of the Partido Popular Democrático, etc., etc.

I don’t care what they say about her, I don’t care what they think … to me, she became that voice that we desperately needed to hear.

She’s the only political official who has stood up to Drumpf and his administration.

I was hungry for news about the Island after the devastating hurricane

 I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I lived there all my life. I lived through many hurricanes, not María, of course. I know the landscape of my country. I know how the towns in the central part of the island were affected without me being there. I know, without being there, how the medical needs couldn’t be addressed because of lack of power. I knew 16, 64 deaths were not correct. There are at least 11 refrigerated vans at the forensic facility containing bodies … the capacity to conduct autopsies and eventual identification has been overwhelmed.

I have family and friends who were without power for 11 months. When communication was possible, I finally was able to get in touch with them. I sent care packages to them including the most basic items that we generally take for granted. I already went back to see.

By the time I returned, there was a semblance of recovery.

Yes, power is restored … not totally. And it’s still very fragile.

Power outings for hours and days at a time are commonplace.

Politics in Puerto Rico is ‘the national sport’. 

My political ideology related to Puerto Rico has gone through a gamut of feelings, ideas and a new conviction. The relationship with the United States is difficult to define.

I think it depends who you hear it from.

As Carmen Yulín and Drumpf enter another Twitter war, find out how the mayor of San Juan fought her way to international prominence.

“I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell,” she famously said as she fought against the entire U.S. government in managing the response to two hurricanes that devastated the Caribbean.

One year after Hurricane Maria made landfall, she’s no less mad.

Watch the season finale of Breaking Big to follow Cruz’s story from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most vocal mayors in the United States. Breaking Big is a new documentary series from the minds of OZY and PBS.

Drumpf …. “🇵🇷 Denies nearly 3,000 Americans in Puerto Rico died in the aftermath of two back to back Hurricanes: Irma and María 🇵🇷 …. “!!

Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico

~HEADLINES~

On September 6, 2017, Hurricane Irma carved a merciless path of destruction through the Caribbean, killing at least 12 people, leaving thousands of others homeless and plunging more than 1 million residents of Puerto Rico into darkness.

Hurricane María the storm made landfall on September 20. María wreaked havoc on the island, causing a level of widespread destruction and disorganization paralleled by few storms in American history. Almost two weeks after the storm abated, most of the island’s residents still lack access to electricity and clean water.

TCart12

The aftermath of these hurricanes are well known to all Puerto Ricans.

The federal response, under the watch of Drumpf, was deficient, miserable and responsible for the deaths of 3,000+ Puerto Rican citizens.

The numbers have changed: 16, 64, 1,400, 2,975, 4,645 …

I believe that the real number will never be known.

I will never forget. I will never forgive!

“They did not die in the hurricane.

They died in pain, at home, of kidney failure unable to access the dialysis clinic for weeks.

They died, gasping for hours near the end, when the oxygen tank they needed to breathe gave out.

They died in the dark and the heat of unsanitary ICU units, of burns or gunshot wounds received before the hurricane that they almost certainly would have survived otherwise.

They died, burning up with fever, of leptospirosis from being in touch with flood waters during the effort to save their neighbors.

They died in fear and confusion after being forced to go off their regular medication.
They died of heat stroke.

They died of diseases of antiquity, in a crisis of neglect unworthy the greatest, wealthiest and most powerful nation in human history.

They died. But we lived. And we remember.”

Drumpf denied this reality as a hurricane barrels toward the Carolinas

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000.

DJTweets

Earlier this month, the island’s governor formally raised the death toll from Hurricane Maria to an estimated 2,975 from 64 following a study conducted by researchers at The George Washington University.

CNN’s own reporting reflects similar numbers.

The university study accounted for Puerto Ricans who succumbed to the stifling heat and other aftereffects of the storm and had not been previously counted in official figures

“I think Puerto Rico was incredibly successful,” Drumpf said Tuesday in the Oval Office, noting that the island location is “tough” during a hurricane due to the inability to transport vital equipment and supplies by truck. “It was one of the best jobs that’s ever been done with respect to what this is all about.”

Federal Hurricane María Response in Puerto Rico …. ‘🇵🇷 An Unsung Success …. NOT!! 🇵🇷 …. “!!


BestJob

~~September 12, 2018~~

BEST JOB EVER

NOT!! 

Believe you me when I say unequivocally that this isn’t true.

THIS IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY FALSE!

It’s a false statement from a delusional, pathological liar, narcissistic, evil, vile ‘man’ who ha no conscience and a vapid soul!

“So-called President Drumpf calling Puerto Rico response an unsung success is “a level of delusion that must be checked by those around him and by Congress,” warns @ChrisCuomo

Words from a dear friend in Puerto Rico who lived through Hurricane María and its aftermath

Speechless, angry, hurt, dazed, depressed, outraged.

To say that the federal government’s intervention during Hurricane María was a success is to insult all of those who suffered thru months of darkness, lack of basic necessities, homelessness and loss of loved ones.
More than half of FEMA officials were not certified, which means many of those who applied for help were denied due to a lack of knowledge on their part.

Containers which sat at port, waiting for inspection, as if there was the most remote possibility of guns or explosives in them. A lack of a coordinated plan to distribute essentials. Not one temporary bridge put up by National Guard or Reserve members, (who do this on regular basis in other countries during their summer trainings) in areas where entire communities or towns were completely cut off from help and supplies.

Among other situations.

To use the Island as an example of a successful mission of rescue is an insult to it’s citizens (note I don’t even bother mentioning U. S. Citizens), to those who graciously and generously helped with donations and still are on the Island, rebuilding homes for the less fortunate. To still see so many blue tarps as roofs is depressing, knowing most are senior citizens who can barely get by and pay for food and meds, much less repair with the ridiculously jacked up prices of building materials.
A horrible thought of what may happen in the Carolinas, Virginia and it’s residents.

My fervent prayers for your safety and that you find comfort after the storm.

My Thoughts on Serena Williams …. “🇺🇸🎾 Nothing Will Make Her Any Less of the Giant that She Is 🎾🇺🇸 …. “


Featured Image -- 215644

~~September 11, 2018~~ 

CAN NEVER TAKE AWAY HER SUPERPOWERS

You all know what happened

She is coming back after her pregnancy, post a life-threatening complication after developing a pulmonary embolism, a controversy about her compression ‘catsuit’ (custom-made by Nike), her decision to wear a tutu and the high stakes of the event.

To add insult to injury, she was fined $17,000.

And then, Mark Knight, Australian cartoonist, decided to rub salt in the wound!

I know what I think about her!

The 2018 US Open final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka will be remembered for all the wrong reasons

The match was guaranteed to make history no matter what.

Williams was gunning for her 24th Grand Slam tournament win, a number that would have tied the all-time record for the most Grand Slam singles tournament wins in history.

And Osaka was hoping to be the first Haitian-Japanese player in history to win a Grand Slam.

In the end, Osaka defeated Williams 6-2, 6-4, ensuring the latter – but her achievement was overshadowed by what happened in the match.

THREE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS AND PEOPLE

~~SOS~~

I’ve loved ABBA since they appeared on the musical scene. I followed the ascent to stardom in this nation.

I’ve been an ardent fan of Cher. There’s no question she’s an amazing performer.

I love Ellen and her resilience.

Here, I have all three together!!

Cher – the 72-years-young song priestess – has just released another track from her upcoming dance album, “Dancing Queen.”

And. It. Is. Everything.

After releasing “Gimme Gimme Gimme” earlier this month, Cher has graced us with “SOS,” another gem from her September 28 album of Cher-inspired covers of ABBA hits.

After filming her role in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” – which included her version of “Fernando” – Cher was said to have been bitten by the ABBA bug.

The dance-filled album will contain 10 new Cher-styled ABBA covers, including some of the group’s biggest hits, including “Waterloo” and “Dancing Queen.”
