The Island of Puerto Rico is still in the recovery stages since Hurricane Maria devastated it in September, 2017.

Many are still without electricity, clean water, everyday needs such as food, clothing, simple essentials and telephones.

During this time of giving – perhaps, you can donate to this cause:

One day, the island will return to the beauty it once was as shown in this video – Sung by native Puerto Rican Marc Anthony

I’ve posted this before, but this year, it has so much more meaning for those of us who helplessly wait for news

My first Christmas experience of Puerto Rican traditions was in 1963

when I was sent to a private Benedictine Monastery high school called Colegio de Nuestra Señora de la Valvanera.

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

 
War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 
The first marijuana factory in Puerto Rico has been officially approved. Located in Ponce, it has the capacity to process hundreds of pounds of marijuana every day. 

The Puerto Rico Dept. of Health approved IMC Corporation – the owners of the factory – who will now develop “over 100 marijuana products” to be sold by dozens of distributors throughout the island…


According to IMC, all their products will be health-related. IMC spokeswoman Tamara Gonzalezannounced that their “medicinal cannabis” will yield marijuana products…over 100 of them…to meet a wide variety of medical needs.

The marijuana products may take the form of pills, oils, creams, inhalants and vaporizers.

The project was financed by Pariter Securitiesand a local investment fund, and employs 50 people in an old PRIDCO building in Ponce.

The IMC marijuana factory was financed and built quickly, after the commonwealth government approved the…

Very good ‘facetious’ points … take a look!

A fun fact: 80% of the people who believe that America is not ready to have a female president had voted for Sarah Palin as a Vice President to a 75 year old man.

The election is just a day away, and Hillary Clinton is still ahead in the polls, despite the combined efforts of the Republican party, the FBI, Wikileaks and Russian hackers. However, she is only up by a couple of percentage points, and in a recent speech President Obama had suggested that Clinton is losing some support because many voters are sexist and refuse to vote for a woman. However, these voters aren’t sexist, they merely recognize the reality that America is simply not ready for a female president. Here are 10 reasons why:

1)  If a woman becomes the American president, the title of the most powerful man in the world will by default go…

El Yunque and Vieques may be sold to private developers in Puerto Rico

Video


Noooo!!!! Never!! Nooo …. “El Yunque and Vieques may be sold to private developers in Puerto Rico!!””

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

El Yunque is a protected natural resource in Puerto Rico.

But the US Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, has warned that the island’s “protected natural resources,” including El Yunque and major sections of Vieques, will be “targeted for private development” by the US Financial Control Board (FCB).

If this is the case, then WHY did the White House urge the passage of PROMESA? This PROMESA is looking more like a Trojan Horse…

On April 1, 2016, during a brief island visit, Jewell wasted no time in blaming “Republican” FCB legislation – the PROMESA bill – for the looming turnover of public land to private developers, on a very major scale, in Puerto Rico.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/us-interior-secretary-visits-puerto-rico-unveil-project-151937605.html?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=fb

Was this an April fool joke?

It would appear so…because three months later, the entire Obama administration lobbied feverishly on behalf of the PROMESA bill which created the FCB.

This lobbying occurred after a full…

A man of principles and unapologetic stances … Yes, “The Greatest”!

Thought Provoking Perspectives

13315279_704994969643735_1444080034289880703_n

I have had many things to be thankful for but above all else; I am grateful for being given life at a time that allowed me to live and witness the life of the man known as “The Greatest”! Yes, he was the greatest of all times. I am not a prophet but I will go on record and say the mold was cast, and there will never be another man like him to ever walk the earth. I am most grateful to have had the opportunity to have met him, and I will honestly say it was the greatest single moment of my life.

Hearing the news of his passing today hurt me in ways I cannot put into words. Muhammad Ali was not a myth; you had to live and understand the time he took the stage. He did more to inspire black people for though his unapologetic stance on…

Post Edward Snowden NSA Reforms

Video


Unappreciated actions ….. “A whistle blower to respect.”

Gronda Morin

cartoon NSA_Spying_Taxpayers_Wide

It is too bad that the following NSA reforms had not been in effect before the whistle-blower/ traitor, Edward Snowden exposed that the U.S. government had been acting under the cover of secrecy by covertly collecting data on all of its taxpaying constituents; as well as on all of its international allies and foes, without any legal oversight and restraints.

PBS FRONTLINE has published a 2/9/15 article on NSA reforms by Sarah Chidress,  “How the NSA Spying Programs Have Changed Since Snowden.”  The following are some of her comments:

“Last week, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which coordinates the various branches of the intelligence community, released a a report that is the most comprehensive public accounting of post-Snowden reforms.”

“But how much has actually changed?”

“It’s kind of dizzying,” said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice’s program on liberty and national security, of the flurry of reports and announcements. “The volume of…

New Pablo Milanes discs feature Cuban songs from years gone by

Video


This will be one for the books …. a must have!!

Repeating Islands

Cuban singer-songwriter Pablo Milanes has recorded two new discs of songs from the Cuba of yesteryear, soon to be on the market and prepared with the collaboration of composer-pianist Jose Maria Vitier, who has revealed some details about the productions, EFE reports.

“Cancion de Otoño” and “Flor Oculta de la Vieja Trova” are the titles of the albums on which Milanes vocalizes numbers from Cuba’s musical history that are either little known or totally forgotten, the state news agency Prensa Latina cited Vitier as saying.

The musician also said that of the 18 songs included on the album “Flor Oculta de la Vieja Trova,” some 80 percent are practically unknown.

On that disc, Milanes sings numbers accompanied by Vitier on piano – the musicians were out to bring that musical instrument back to the Cuban trova style, traditionally played on guitar.

Pablo Milanes, 72, who was one of the founders…
