Anita, Miguel, and Connie are dear friends and family members.  TWENTY NINE MILLION HISPANICS are eligible to vote in the midterm elections next month.  If just 40 percent of Hispanics vote in the elections next month it could change the political  landscape of the United States.  And should Hispanics continue to vote in large numbers it will change how politicians view Hispanics.

Just 40 Percent

In an ideal world, everyone eligible to vote should vote.  If forty percent of  Hispanic voters voted in border states of Arizona and Texas it would change the direction of those states and the country.   40% of  Hispanics would determine who would be Governor, who would represent them in Congress and the Senate.

While Hispanics is far in away the fastest growing demographic, voter turnout is low.   Four years ago, only 27% of eligible Hispanic voters participated.  Verses 46% of white and 41% of black voters.

Why is Voting Important? 

Miguel , it’s is the only time when YOU have a say in what happens in your country, in your state, in your city, and who the best people to choose to operate the schools in your school district.   Its not just choosing a president, governor or mayor.   Next month voters will vote on issues that directly effects them in their state, city, town and county.  A single vote could change the direction of your community.

  Choose the party and individuals who best represent your values and issues that are important to you.

Despite the size of the Hispanics community. (The largest non white population in the country)  the community is under represented.  As a result, issues important to Hispanics are not seen as a priority and this isn’t like to change until a larger percentage of Hispanics vote and elect more Hispanics to office.

Anita, there was a time in United States when only white men could vote.  Not women or any person who wasn’t white.   Early on, black voters understood the power of the ballot box. Blacks voting  in large numbers, were elected to boards, councils, became Mayors, elected to Congress, became Governors, elected to the Senate and in 2008, Barack Obama was the first non white individual to become President of the United States.

For years, blacks fought for the right to vote.  People were killed attempting to vote and as the courts slowly agreed that blacks and all Americans could vote.  Communities began making it difficult to blacks to vote.  In 2018, history is repeating itself.  Some communities and states are attempting to suppress the black vote.

Connie, you and I registered here in Sacramento County in 2016.  If you choose, you can vote today using your absentee ballot.  I would like to suggest a calling your friends and family  via email and social media and make a pac to vote where every one is accountable to each other as it was 2016. We celebrated with a crazy pizza party. 

 Two years ago, we took videos with our (I voted sticker) on and posted those videos on Facebook     I regret not taking your boys.  It’s important that they be apart of the process.  

Remember,even if your guy or issue loses. If forty percent of Hispanics continue to participate in the  elections, there will be less chatter about immigration and deportations.   Other issues that are near and dear to the community will be seen in a new light.   

“I promise”

“Oh Look, Black people in the White House”

First things first!  Kanye !    I’m not gonna beat up on someone who is clearly going through things. One day is bi-polar and the next day he was misdiagnosed (not bi-polar).  After all this is America, he is allowed to worship anyone .  If there was a poll, I was say support for the Kanye-Trump love fest would be minus twenty per sent?

There are poor people who are reaching deep inside their pockets to donate money to  mega churches so that the Preacher or Pastor can buy a Private Jet or Rolls Royce, so who are we to judge.  Now,Brown’s support of the prez, confounds me, but this is America!

Brown and West, black men in the oval office.  This photo opt ,wasn’t for African Americans. ITS THE MIDTERMS.  The pic’s were  for the President’s base.  See, black people love me !  Did yo see him?   You saw him, right!  “I thought Kanye was gonna do me ,right there in the oval office.” 

“A shit show in HD”

A working lunch where they talked about problems in Chicago, Starring Kanye West and co starring  Football Great, Actor Jim Brown, both reside in LOS ANGELES COUNTY  CALIFORNIA!

If your looking for logic try Pokemon!  Misty and Mimikyu would know to invite leaders from Chicago and Pikachu would acknowledged those people effected by Hurricane Michael.

If there is a bright side.   Kanye made history yesterday.  (Yes, he did)

 He is  the first person to publicly say “motherfucker” in the president’s office.

Twista!

Zimbabwe: Kentucky Fried Chicken stores out of chicken and cash


Image result for kentucky fried chicken zimbabwe

Leading fast-food chains in Zimbabwe have shut their doors as the cash crunch in the country worsens – just two months after President Emmerson Mnangagwa won elections.

KFC put up notices at its branches in the capital, Harare, and the second city, Bulawayo, saying they would remain closed “during these difficult times” until further notice.

“This is due to the fact that we are unable to source stock from our suppliers as they require US dollars. We are doing everything possible to resume trade as soon as possible,” the notice said.

St Elmos pizza outlet said it had shut its branches for the same reason, adding that it would use the time to do some deep cleaning and repairs .

Chicken Inn ran out of chicken on Tuesday, and it was unclear when they will get supplies again, the state-run Chronicle newspaper reported.

Some phramacies were also shut in Bulawayo, it added.

Last week, Zimbabwe’s Financial Gazette newspaper reported that many retail shops were running out of some essential goods because of foreign currency shortages.

Zimbabwe abandoned its own currency in 2009, adopting the use of foreign cash. The government issued its own version of dollars called “bond notes” in 2016 to ease the continuing cash shortage, but they have rapidly lost their value.

15 Things You Do Because You’re Still In Love With Your Ex


Image result for chinese woman

Photo: Google

1. You still think about what-ifs

You think about the what-ifs and what-nots. You evaluate your worth what you could have done right or wrong that did not the materialize the break-up.

2. You stalk his social media accounts often

The easiest way to know whether he is missing you or not, or for that matter if somebody else is missing him or not, is to stalk his social media accounts.

3. You regret losing your true love

You regret losing him. You go back to time all the time and regret the times you rebuked him or agreed to have broken up with him.

4. You compare him with other people

Inadvertently you end up comparing him with every other guy. Nobody can match up with his obsession for X-box. For you, he makes the best cheese sandwich in the whole world. You feel nobody is good enough besides him.

5. Too many hookups

To channelize your inner anger and frustrations, you take shelter in the form of meaningless sex. Later, again you berate yourself for letting someone else for touching you in places where you actually yearn to be touched by your ex.

6. Overthinking about the time spent

Yes, you think and over think the good, bad and ugly times in your head again and again. You nitpick everything he did. Not only that you try to justify his every action in your head.

7. You find reasons to contact him

It does not matter how silly or big the occasion is. It may be your best friend’s birthday or the bad omelet you had in your breakfast, you try to contact him for the silliest reason.

8. You go back to the happy times

For you, he is the most important milestone in your life. What better to celebrate your life than reminiscing about the happy times you have had — the cuddles, quickies, the stares, you go back to every happy time.

9. You have a hard time coming to terms with rejection

You cannot still come to terms why he broke up with you. You question yourself all the time. Your ex is such a sensitive topic for you that your parents and friends hesitate to bring his name or an instance pertaining to him in front of him.

10. No future plans

You do not know what lies ahead of your future. You just cannot see yourself kissing another man or walking the aisle for another person.

11. You still talk about him

He invariably is a part of your conversation. He is not anymore present in your life. But you keep bringing him back his context in your conversations with your friends.

12. You stay in contact with his friends and family

You cannot get over the fact that he has moved on from you. So, you try and invent ways to keep tabs on him. It kills you to not know what he is doing at present. You are still in contact with his best friend or sister to get scoops from his life. You want to know, “Does he miss me?” You want to the new girl who he is dating. You try to gauge how serious they are.

13. You still have hope

The most obvious sign that you still are not over your ex, is that you still have hopes of patching things up with your ex.

14. Having doubts about you

You still have not recuperated from your bitter break up. It has taken a toll on your confidence that you fear if you can do something perfectly.

15. You do not date at all

He is so deeply invaded your blood that you do find anybody dateable at all. No matter if the guy looks like Ryan Reynolds, has money worth Mark Zuckerberg, or has the heart of James Harrison nobody is good enough for you to date.

Breakups are messy and moving on is difficult. But life goes on. Try to move on from the one that got away. Because the best is awaiting you.

Desperate Times For The GOP

Did he or didn’t he?

We may never know.  Today, after all the polls are conducted, the Republicans are in a lose lose proposition.  Support Kavanugh and deepen the divide with women voters or pull Kavanaugh and lose their evangelical support.  Devout christians have tolerated Trump, so that they would have a strong conservative in the Supreme Court.  At 53,   Judge Kavanaugh could be on the bench thirty to forty years.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has baggage. 100,000 pages of baggage, withheld by the Trump Administration.    People who knows him ,says he is aggressive when he drinks.  He has Roy Moore baggage, where three women,(so far) who do not know each other has accused him of getting aggressive with women.

Epic Fail?

Rachel Mitchell was the designated mouthpiece for the old white men club.  Her role was to discredit Professor Ford in manner they could not.  However, Professor Ford, was impossible to annihilate.   Not only did Ford answer every question, she readily admitted to her own errors.

When it was time for Judge Kavanagh to speak, they were clearly done with her.  Unlike Professor Ford, Judge Kavanagh, was defiant, combative with the Senators and refused to answer twenty persent of the questions.

The Judge said: This is destroyed my family and my good name. A good name built up through decades of very hard work and public service at the highest levels of the American government. This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit,” 

“Fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups.

The Judge cried and yelled.  He says he has never raped anyone!  He repeatedly spoke of his diligence as a student and of his positions in sports.  I think Trumps base was proud. Tomorrow is another day.

There were other judicial choices, but he chose Kavanaugh, a choice with 100,000 page mystery.  Yes, these are super ugly partisan times.   Yes, like the Republicans, I believe the leak of Professor Fords info to the press was intentional and it has cost her.

I also believe, by the end of weekend she will be seen as hero.  Meanwhile, the clock is quickly winding down on the GOP and the news isn’t good.   Every day the wait the risk another woman coming forward. If the vote goes down party lines, they can’t afford to lose more than two votes.  As the Repulican Senators made very clear today, they do not have any interest of an FBI inquiry.

Theyr are down to two options.   Quickly install the tainted Judge Kavanaugh in the next few weeks and lose more Independents and women,or start the process over with a new candidate and losing the Evangelical base.

Lindsay Graham Donald Trump Lovers ?

Lindsay Graham and Donald Trump were once adversaries.  Politics is adversarial by its very nature gets deep dark and ugly.  But some thing are so personal that they seems unforgivable.  When Donald Trump implied Ted Cruz’s wife was unattractive and his father was involved in the Kennedy assassination, I’m not sure, how it possible to have a beer together after that.

Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a “race-baiting xenophobic bigot”.  He called him the “World biggest Jackass” for trashing his good friend John McCain.   He has call him unfit to be President (Questions?)   He says his Character made him unfit.

They disagreed about the Charlottesville rally .President Trump  suggested  there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like Heather Heyer who was killed .I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency.

In a pair of tweets, Trump responded  “Publicity seeking Lindsey -Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists and people like Ms. Heyer. . . . Such a disgusting lie. He just can’t forget his election trouncing. The people of South Carolina will remember!”

In January 2018, Graham was at the Oval Office meeting where Trump said he opposed letting in more immigrants from certain “shithole” or “shithouse” countries. Georgia GOP senator David Perdue, who was also in the room, called the reported quotation a “total misrepresentation.” But Graham couldn’t bring himself to lie for Trump. “My memory hasn’t evolved,” Graham told reporters. “I know what was said, and I know what I said.”

Is it in his Kiss? 

In 2018, Lindsey Graham changed.  In 2015, Trump was a racist, in 2018 Lindey said he had NEVER heard Donald Trump make a single racist statement.  After calling him a kook, he says he “intends to support him in 2020 without equivocation.

Graham said it was policy is what changed his mind. “He’s on track to do big things,” Graham says of the president. “He built up the military. I campaigned on it. He got out of the Iran deal. I campaigned on it. He’s destroying ISIL. I campaigned on it. He’s restructuring the tax code and the way we do business. I campaigned on it. He’s doing much of what I campaigned on, and I’m pleased.” Graham now speaks regularly with Trump and has become a close ally on matters ranging from North Korea to health care.

“One, I got to know him,” Graham says. “I’ve played golf with him. You know, play golf with somebody for three or four hours, you get to know them better. He’s funny as hell. He’s got a great sense of humor. There’s a method to the madness.”

“He’s nobody’s fool,” Graham adds. “Very smart. And he asks a lot of good questions.”

Graham, supports the Presidents North Korean Policy he believes Trump agrees with him that a war with North Korea is better than letting North Korea develop an arsenal of nuclear-tipped missiles that could strike the United States.

When President Trump was arguing he was forced to impose a policy of separating children from parents who had illegally crossed the border because a law passed by Democrats tied his hands, Graham said on CNN that it simply wasn’t true: “President Trump could stop this policy with a phone call.” But Graham didn’t call on Trump to actually make that call. When Graham was asked on CNN on June 15 whether his newfound support for Trump was “two-faced,” he had a simple answer: “If you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a shit.”
