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.

WH Flip Flops or Flipped Out?

Issue

Wake up America. How much longer are you willing to accept this low level of sub service from our leaders?

First, the White House says one thing, then they wind up saying another. So what are Americans supposed to believe? This is the problem journalists face with reporting the facts. These are still changing as we write this.

Cuban Candidates Clash

US Senators Ted Cruz, Texas and Marco Rubio, Florida and both Cuban immigrants found plenty of opportunities to draw attention to themselves and add to their opponents camp pains contrasts.

Happy News Year

Issue

What a strange, and surreal year it's been as it finally ends with an additional second as if we wanted to hang on to it longer.

After all the weird things that occurred, why not have some fun New Year's Eve as you kick 2016 right in the keesters. If you're going out, know that many cities are bolstering security, especially in the light of the most recent deadly truck attack in Berlin.

Adios, 再見, Goodbye to people of all backgrounds, creeds, and cultures who celebrate and honor the tradition of seeing off the past year and greeting 2017.

The Roaming Empire?

Issue

GOP conservatives, who we will call Ceasar and Defiant Donald, who we will call Brutus continue their flip flop danceathon. Around and round they go. When the music will stop, nobody knows.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answered it.

"Jesus Was Booked"

Issue

Is Sarah Palin a religious person, does she lack common sense, or simply insensitive to Christians?

Could it be considered blasphemy by stating "Jesus was booked" following Good Friday and Ester Sunday? Can we agree this is the American people's house, over 70% of which are Christians?

@SarahPalinUSA says she invited @TedNugent and @KidRock to the White House because "Jesus was booked" http://politi.co/2p0CUgI

Cam-Pain Anger Management?

Issue

Winner Ted Cruz is continually being attacked by sore loser Donald Trump. Their so called b-romance is quickly evolving into a brawl and its about to intensify. What neither one of these knuckleheads realize is that it's Marco Rubio, who may be the one declaring victory.

We also wonder how The Donald will react if he realizes that he was trumped by Latinos?
