Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

We Don't Need No Stinking... Missiles

Issue

We Don't Need No Stinking... Missiles. The people of Syria need meals, mercy.

What was the real reason that America attacked Syria? President Donald Trump ordered his first major military action and it was full of show and tell.

Do you know why it's called the military theater? In warfare, a theater is an area or place in which important military events occur or are progressing. A theater can include the entirety of the airspace, land and sea area that is or that may potentially become involved in larger war operations.

TAKING WAY TOO LONG

Issue

It has now been three weeks since prisoners escaped from NY State penitentiary. Officials estimate there have been more than 1,000 members of law enforcement involved in the massive manhunt for the convicted murderers who escaped from a New York State prison three weeks ago.

At an estimated $1 million dollars a day, that is a lot of money, folks. NY state police is leading in the search, but other law enforcement agencies are involved in the effort, which includes US Marshals Service, FBI, the New York Department of Correction and local law enforcement.

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN

Issue

My late dad AJ Soto, II was a good man and a human being of great integrity. He once had money and left it behind fleeing from the Cuban revolution. He instead chose to leave the communist island to save his family and forgo riches by serving as a social worker when our family came to the USA. My mother and father became Bing Crosby fans because of the following song. The message is to appreciate unexpected benefits, which I remember hearing again and again that famous phrase, "everything happens for a reason." Believe it or not, I just found a heads up penny.

Is This Leadership?

What happens to a leader who thinks he's the #1 Boss and CEO of US but in reality works for and was elected to represent all 333 million people of The United State of America?

Eight months into office, why has Trump yet to appoint key agency watchdogs? Is he really a stranger in a strange land, or is he carrying out a plot? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/months-into-office-trump-has-yet-to-appoint...

Will more people be killed or injured before we the people wake up and take notice? Virginia governor: Charlottesville was about hatred, not a statue http://hill.cm/BF47KMz

Is there a sinister plan to destroy democracy in America as we know it? How close is this great nation to being shattered, or crumble? We must uphold the notion that all men are created equal. Fascism is not our future it cannot be; we cannot allow it to be so but this is surely the way fascism can begin: http://nyer.cm/Ss9dVaJ

Empathy vs Ego

Issue

We all have an ego, but size differ. We got it in primary school when kids were jerks or perhaps earlier if our older siblings, or other family members were jerks first. The ego kept us safe from the emotional slings and arrows. But now that we're grown, it is a wall that separates. It's time for it to come down. By practicing openness instead of defensiveness, forgiveness instead of vengeance, apology instead of blame, vulnerability instead of strength, and grace instead of power.

NO RESPECT

Announcement
Images: 

Many cultures and traditions place lots of thrust on paying respect to their senior citizens. In some communities and societies, children are expected to listen, learn and give back to their elders.

However, everyone knows that respect is a two-way street and it has to be earned. According to national polls, Wahington DC lost all respect long ago and may have a long way to go to get back its Mojo.

Respect is a quality seriously lacking in today's society. So, what the hell does it mean when our elected leaders insist on being mean?

Register to avoid political disaster

Issue

Federal, state and local public servants have joined political inaction committees, which are wasting our tax dollars and courting political disaster.

Voter registration is the responsibility of all the citizens of The United State of America, but only 70 percent of those who are eligible to vote have been registered.

RegistertoVote.org is committed to reaching the remaining 30 percent. They simplify the voter registration process, making it faster and easier for US citizens to get involved and become an active voice in the democratic system..

The Real Deal

Issue

This is not reality TV, nor the art of any money making deal. It's real serious and our nation depends on it.

How can we the people of The United States of America allow members from the lunatic fringe to ruin our future?

State of Confusion?

Issue

Have we reached a moment of crisis in the history of American democracy? Russians under investigation are being welcomed with their media representatives inside The American people's White House and enter our Oval Office? Is this any way to make any nation greater?
