Issue

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.

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?

It's Up To You, New York

Issue

Start spreading the news, he may be going away... A Democrat N.Y. Congressman has shown what New Yorkers are made of as he introduced a resolution of inquiry forcing a GOP Vote on Trump’s conflicts, ethics violations, and most of all his ties to Russia.

Same Sex Attractions?

Issue

We live in a global society where everyone is assumed heterosexual unless they say it openly, or its otherwise obvious because most folk appear to be heterosexual.

But for those who aren’t, attempting to show interest in someone of the same gender can range from the awkward to interesting. There’s always the risk of hitting on someone who doesn’t return that sort of interest.

NO SMOKING GUN

News

After wasting seven hundred days of investigative work, which cost US taxpayers 7 million dollars, there's no smoking gun. However, the critics continue to waste time and resources pointing fingers at the over 700-page report on Clinton's actions before, during or after Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. diplomatic outpost and CIA annex in the eastern Libyan city.

What Have You Done For US?

Issue

Dear Government-
What have you done for the US lately?
You have a GOP majority in Congress and WH.
There's no romance without healthcare and finance.
Remember that you're as good as your last day in office.
Yours truly,

Congress and The While House with your demands.

PS

Filling your pockets with payoffs does not drain the swamp in the US.

Have you ever asked what you can do for your country?

Puttering with Golf balls does nothing for the US.

Playing a blame gets nothing done for the US.

Giveth and Taketh Away

Issue

The Lord Gave and the Lord Hath Taken Away is a Bible quote found in the book of Job.

So it is fitting to note that it was the media which made The Donald a celebrity and he has now turned on the same hand that feeds him.

Can you imagine what Trump will do for the faithful followers who still believe in him and plans to vote for him? How many people has he managed to insult and how promises have been broken over the past year alone? #TRUMPTAXES...ETC.

Crumbling Infrastructure

Issue

Over $3 Billion dollars are needed to upgrade America’s fractured infrastructure. Lead pipes are poisoning our children, railways, highways and bridges are broken down and need emergency repairs.

With a grading system depicts the condition and performance of the nation’s infrastructure in the familiar form of a school report card by assigning letter grades based on the physical condition and needed investments for improvement.

Devastating Humiliation

Issue

Rest assured there are no Republicans lighting cigars to celebrate. US House Speaker Paul Ryan met with the press to comment on GOP's failure of #Trumpcare: "We came really close today, but we came up short....We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future..."

@potus @realdonaldtrump the so-called great negotiator has once again fallen flat on another one of his empty promises. The arts of another deal gone sour for the American president.
