Can these two ever get along?
Can these two ever get along?

Election 2016 – The second presidential debate was last night. As we all know, while Hillary Clinton kept her cool and stayed focus on the issues that matter to the American Public. Donald Trump did not disappoint us with his typical ranting and putting the blame on everyone that can hold a candle. He is a real bully. He even disagrees with his own running Vice-President. This election is about Donald Trump being #1. He wants to win for himself. The Republican are at arm wits trying desperately to find a safe heaven with their candidate. In my book, Clinton is 2-0 with this big win again.

Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew – This was a very nasty storm. The damage and devastation it caused, hasn’t been seen in decades. I can personally tell you, we were without power. It was an ordeal to get fuel, supplies. My back yard is in shambles. My dog was terrified. My children were scared. We had no means of communication with the outside world since everything we own is run on power. We were without power for 2 a day and what save us was we are close to City Hall and I guess we are in the same grind as them. But when we lost the internet,  for 2 1/2  days. If  you are like me, who works using the internet this was a downpour. We give  thanks, to the utilities and Brighthouse for the heroic tireless effort to restored everyone life back to normal. For those who has lost their home, our prayers are with you. Just remember, you can always rebuild, a lost life is worst.

Donald_Trump(1)Donald Trump – “You’re Hired!”. The Republican Party has spoken, after so many months of Flip Flop with “The Donald”, finally they have conceded giving Mr. Donald Trump the nomination he needs to move forward for his dream to become the next President Of The United States of America.

 

 

 

StopViolenceViolence  in America – is at an all-time high. Many believe our nation is definitely divided. Too much violence and not enough gun control are the key issues which will come to play in this year election. Let’s hope Donald Trump is up to the challenge if he wins on November 8th.

 

 

 

Arturo The Lonely BearArturo “The Loneliest Bear”

This article is presented courtesy of  Wikipedia.org

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arturo_(polar_bear)

Arturo (1985 – July 3, 2016) was a polar bear living in Mendoza Zoological Park inMendoza, Argentina, the only polar bear living in the country. He was born in the United States and transferred to Argentina in 1993. His companion, a female named Pelusa, died of cancer in 2012. The living conditions of the cage Arturo resided in were controversial, as temperatures reach up to 40°C in Argentina, and the pool in Arturo’s cage was only 20 inches deep. Animal rights activists had, in response, dubbed Arturo the “world’s saddest animal” and promoted a petition to have him moved to Assiniboine Park Zoo, a zoo inWinnipeg, Canada. The petition was created by Laura Morales of Hamilton, Ontario. It gained considerable attention after the hashtag #Freearturo began trending on Twitter. Supporters of the petition also noted that a polar bear died in Buenos Aires in December 2012 due to excessive heat, and argued that Arturo exhibited symptoms of depression and other mental health problems.

As of July 19, 2014, the petition had over 400,000 signatures and had been endorsed by Newt Gingrich and Cher. Assiniboine Park Zoo responded that while they would’ve gladly accepted Arturo there, they did not have the authority to do so unless Argentina agreed to transfer him there and that the Mendoza zoo could not supply the necessary medical records to make such a trip possible.

On July 24, 2014, the director of the Mendoza Zoo, Gustavo Pronotto, told the Associated Press that Arturo was too old to be moved to Canada. In social media, people also advocated for Arturo to be moved to Canada. and Twitter hashtag #FreeArturo.

On July 3, 2016, Arturo died.

The Woman Card– As Donald Trump favorites calls her, Is Hilary really up to the challenge to become our next president? The odds are strongly against her. The majority of American are seeking justice and old values to be imposed once against with-out thinking about the consequences it may bring. They might elect Donald Trump just because he voices their “anger” and frustration. Trump doesn’t bring solutions to the table. He brings more showmanship, he treats this nation with ignorance. The solutions may sound good, but a real thinker always knows “what may look good on paper, may not actually work in reality.”

Is History Repeating Itself?

“In 1968, the time for uproar on “The Civil” movement was on the rise. Music was the key to help activist inspired their actions. Unity and Peace was the key words to help the cause. Now its 2016 and we are doing this again. Violence is not the answer. Killing is not the answer. Nothing will be resolve being negative. Learn from the past. All can be accomplished peacefully.”

Revolution by The Beatles – From the album “The White Album” 1968

Written by John Lennon – Credited to Lennon-McCarney

 

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know that you can count me out
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We’d all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We’re doing what we can
But when you want money
for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right
Ah

ah, ah, ah, ah, ah…

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right
all right, all right, all right
all right, all right, all right

And now we got a Revolution
Cause i see the face of things to come
Yeah, your Constitution
Well, my friend, its gonna have to bend
Im here to tell you about destruction
Of all the evil that will have to end.

Some folks are gonna get the notion
I know theyll say im preachin hate
but if i have to swim the ocean
well i would just to communicate
its not as simple as talkin jive
the daily struggle just to stay alive

Singin about a Revolution
because were talkin about a change
its more than just evolution
well you know you got to clean your brain
the only way that we can stand in fact
is when you get your foot off our back
