THE HISPANIC VOTE IS UP FOR GRABS

Hispanic Vote

While both candidates court the Black and White vote, the deciding votes will be made by Hispanic voters. The second largest voting bloc in the U.S. (would be first if  our illegal citizens could vote, lol, just kidding, hearts are skipping beats all over the country right now). We will eventually decide who will become the next President of the U.S. in 2020 and we generally decide by how our pocket books are doing. Hispanics are notorious for not seeing that D and R in front of people’s name. The joke is that the D and R stand for,….              . Yet we go unseen, partially because of that illegal uncle living in the basement. Mostly because our votes are taken for granted. The economy is the biggest issue, then terrorism, then immigration, sorry tio. We believe in legal immigration, just not in the insurmountable obstacles that are needed, I mean why do I have to do 50 push ups and 100 sit ups and 10 pull ups on top of everything else, wasn’t scaling that 30 foot wall in under a minute good enough. So, while the emphasis is not on the Hispanic vote with the candidates, it will be felt in the voting booths as more Hispanics are flocking to the voting stations then ever before. At least we have two candidates to choose from, in Venezuela, they don’t even have voting stations. Do you want to know what the D and the R stand for in Hispanic voters, send your donations to me via my blog in $100 denominations… seriously, don’t do that, I’m already in trouble with the IRS, it stands for Democrats and Republicans, what else….  ;)’.

PANDEMIC TV

pandemic tv

Pandemic TV, one thing that has gotten a lot of attention during this pandemic is TV. The ratings must be off the chain. I think I might have reached professional TV watcher status. As I explored my options, I noticed that there is one TV opportunity that I didn’t have that was being talked about, The Morning Show on Apple TV. So I decided to try the free one week for Apple TV. When I tried though, the condition was that I had to watch it on my Apple product, i.e. Mac, IPad, etc.. The problem was that I didn’t own one, at least not one that I could remember the password to. So I decided, in my Pandemaboredom, to buy an IPad, there were good deals all over and the deal that caught my eye was; buy an IPad, latest edition, cheaper than they were last year, more powerful and get a year of Apple TV free. I jumped all over the deal and set up my IPad and started to watch my free Apple TV. What I found out is that the Oscars, Grammy’s, Emmy’s, maybe Tony’s might be swept by Apple TV. Huh, I just EGOT, even though I think I put them in the wrong order. Anyway, Apple TV has the best mini series TV I have ever seen. I was thinking of buying a portable potty just so I could binge the shows, then I realized I just could take the  IPad to the bathroom (I didn’t do that, at least not to watch the TV shows). The shows See, Defending Jacob, Truth Be Told, For All Mankind and the movie The Banker, which was amazing, has left me knowing that there is no way that you aren’t left knowing that Apple TV just took entertainment to a new level. Can’t wait for Greyhound to come out and just want to see if they add some kind of Latino ethnic series, something like Showtime has done with City of Angels into the mix. I have a great idea about a Federal Law Enforcement Agent that dates an illegal Colombian woman and tries to keep it secret while doing his job. It’s interesting. LOL, ahhh, life is funny. It’s a comedy.

ABORTION

abortion

With the Supreme Court ruling that a Louisiana law is too burdensome to people seeking abortions, the question of abortion and the death of fetuses has come to the forefront. I have a couple of scenarios and/or questions that I just don’t understand. Do fathers have a say in an abortion and if they don’t why do male judges have a say? If a person hurts a woman that  is pregnant, less than 8 weeks, and creates a miscarriage, is that murder? If a woman that is driving to get an abortion and gets into an accident by a drunk driver and creates a miscarriage, did (s)he commit murder? If it is murder, if my girlfriend or wife drinks or smokes during her pregnancy, which could create harm to the fetus can I get a restraining order or an injunction so she would have to stop? And if she causes that fetus to abort because she accidentally eats something that created a miscarriage is that manslaughter? babyslaughter? fetusslaughter? If you believe in the death penalty, are you allowed not to believe in abortions? And if you believe abortions are legal, are you allowed to believe that the death penalty is illegal? I am sure there are so many more questions but those just a few off the top of my head. I’m pro-choice but would never get an abortion, mainly because I’m not a seahorse, if you get that joke, you’re pretty damn smart.

SHARED NEWS: Josh Hawley warns Trump on Supreme Court disappointments. The GOP senator says the president needs to overhaul his process for picking nominees, in a swipe at top legal conservatives. POLITICO WRITTEN BY MARIANNE LEVINE

Supreme Court

When comments like that are made, it’s hard to justify or not believe that the third branch of government isn’t somewhat politicized or politically motivated. I really think we should look into how the Justices are selected and appointed and find a way to completely depoliticize how it’s done. They, and I am sure the justices would agree, are not there to push forward political agendas but to interpret laws and rules that are already in place and to determine if laws, that are passed, conflict with the original intent of the constitution. It’s my belief that the Justices should be apolitical and even  slightly robotic when it comes to their duties. This is not a knock on Sen. Hawley, he was just more open on what people on both sides of the aisle are thinking when this selection process is done.

NYT SHOWS WHY THEY AREN’T THE NEWSPAPER OF EVERYONE

New York Times Says Senator’s Op-Ed Did Not Meet Standards

After a staff uproar, The Times says the editing process was “rushed.” Senator Tom Cotton’s “Send In the Troops” essay is now under review.


 

The New York Times, a newspaper that I have a subscription to because I like my papers to be free of bias, decided to recall an OP-ED from lawmaker Tom Cotton because it wasn’t to the standards of some of their staff. I can tell you that I would have completely disagreed with some, if not all of the Senator’s OP-ED but he penned it and you agreed to publish it, don’t know if he paid to have it published but nonetheless it was an opinion piece which could have been countered by a staff writer. When opposing “opinions” are not allowed to be debated then democracy has failed. It was the first time that I was disappointed by this prestigious newspaper. I thought about cancelling my subscription but thought better of it. My nine dollars doesn’t mean much but I earned it and I don’t want to spend my money on a newspaper that isn’t willing to debate topics that matter. It is no different from dictatorships (well, not that bad but getting close to it). Trying to silence anyone because you disagree with their views is for monarchies and regimes, not for newspapers that pride themselves on transparency. The reason I didn’t cancel is because they were open about staff writers threatening to quit. Now, I’m not saying to allow mein kampf to be published, but Sen. Cotton’s opinion on calming the riots by sending in the military isn’t quite that, even though it does come somewhat close. Plus, how can I look smart if I’m not allowed to blog about someone’s opinion that is completely wrong. Send in the military, calling for martial law, that’s just crazy, but let the Senator express his opinion and then let the voters decide if he is right and/or wrong and you print a rebuttal to counter his opinion, I thought that would have been the fairest and best solution.

UPDATE: DO ALIENS EXIST

uap

Alright, maybe aliens do exist and they are super tiny and have ships shaped like a bee. Don’t know what kind of wall is going to keep these tiny bee shaped people out. Do the current visa restrictions apply to them and are they the cause of the corona virus? We need to start building tiny detention centers and beehive impounds before it’s too late. Maybe they got passed our satellite detection systems because they are so tiny. We need to start looking for super tiny high tech cities, they may have already invaded and are planning to take over. And have we already accidentally stepped on them. These are questions that deserve answers. In all seriousness, freaking spooky and awesome at the same time. It could be where evolution is taking us, to super tiny. Or, if they are 40 feet long and they were not picked up by our satellites, then someone has some really cool spy planes and someone is definitely loosing the arms race. I mean, c’mon, not even Santa can escape NORAD and he has multiple diesel reindeer powered sled that takes him around the world in one night and these things escaped all tracking, radar, satellite systems? It’s one hell of a spy plane…… or bullshit…..

DO ALIENS EXIST

aliens

Just by the laws of probability, other forms of life should exist on another planet. There are an infinite number of planets, stars and galaxies. If you believe in evolution, then you should be a firm believer of extraterrestial life forms. If they don’t exist, that is a good confirmation or indicator of a higher power. If they do, than the argument is again, who created these beings, was it evolution or a higher power? The non-existence of ET only tends to lean towards that there is probably a GOD. But if they do exist and If they look exactly like us, then they are probably body snatchers and you should run like hell.

AnecDotE/MPO: MY VIEW ON RACISM

sun

This might be very controversial but my view on racism is that some people don’t like other people because of the amount of sunburn they can or can’t get. That’s what it boils down to. That is the only difference. I guess if we all could receive the same amount of sunburn, we would get along………… or find something else to hate each other for. This is meant to be humorous and to show how silly the concept of racism is. So oddly enough. it’s the Sun’s fault, racism. When that mother fucker blows up, racism will end.

Again, this is meant to be humorous and make you think. You know what comedians are, more effective philosophy teachers. Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Dave Chappelle, The best Philosophy teachers of all time.

MPO: DACA

 

daca

DACA is back in the news and for a good reason. The dreamers got a reprieve from the Supreme court and if their case goes back to court, it won’t be until 2021 before it would reach the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court decided to not allow to rescind the DACA program due to administrative reasons, filed incorrectly, which I think Elaine Duke might or might not have done somewhat intentionally. I know she received a lot of angst by the people that support the dreamers and now by the people that oppose it but I don’t think she deserves it. I always thought there was an easy fix for these dreamers, a sort of go around that would allow them to stay in the country. The U.S. gives away a certain number of visas every year to foreign residents for legal entry into the U.S.. Nothing states that those people, the ones that receive these visas for legal entry and residence, have to be outside the U.S. when they receive it. These dreamers are proven good citizens, hard working and intelligent, and to no fault of their own, already inside the country. There is nothing that says they can’t be the recipients of these legal entry passes that gives them the right to live in the country. I believe this would solve the problem on both sides of the political aisle and allow everyone to be happy. There are very few opportunities to grant entry to people that show that they could not only live in this country without being on public assistance but also speak the language fluently, are professionals and have a good work ethic that would only improve the country. I don’t know if this a legal or workable solution but I do know that uprooting people that only know one country and sending them to a foreign country where they have never lived and forcing them to sell all their belongings and leave their jobs is absolutely not nice.

MPO: INFINITE SPACE

infinite space

I always thought that, with the bettering of technology, we should send satellites into space, every 5 years, in a straight line, that could communicate with each other and send images to each other and finally relaying images back to us, on Earth, just to see how infinite space really is. I would enlist several other countries and split the price tag evenly with them and share the information with them. You never know what will be found. You would probably have to have some kind of solar rechargeable battery and some kind of imminent collision device that would allow it to avoid Captain Marvel or the Guardians of the Galaxy (I know that they’re not real) but just in case an asteroid or other debris….. and Captain Marvel or the Guardians of the Galaxy are to busy to prevent the collision, then we should have something there to do evasive maneuvers.
