2021 Resolution vs Intention

Submitted by ub on Mon, 01/11/2021 - 16:17

The God awful year of a pandemic that we all feared is now in the rear. 2020 is behind us, and chances are, you are setting goals. You may have decided that 2021 is your opportunity to make up for every single word you didn’t produce amid Coronavirus or Covid-19. But how realistic are your New Year’s writing resolutions or intentions?

Mask Busters

Please know whenever anyone decides not to #WearAMask, they’re endangering themselves, along with everyone around them.

The best way to enforce an international mask-wearing mandate, it appears to most folk who we have heard from, would be if there were a database where people worldwide could take a photo of the culprits and load it along with a geographical identification.

RIP: Godfather

I am saddened by the news that my Godfather Osvaldo N Soto passed away. He was 91 years old and my dad's youngest brother and the final member of The Soto - Polo Family Greatest Generation. The photos above feature Osvaldo in the middle along with his siblings, including my late and great father.

Making Friends

Old friends, best friends, new friends, colleagues, acquaintances, pals, buddies, and the term no one really wants to be, a frenemy.

Friends are a strange, volatile, contradictory, yet sticky phenomenon. They are made, crafted, shaped, molded, created by focused effort and good intent. And yet, true friendship, once recognized, in its essence is effortless. Everyone is someone's friend, even when they think they are all alone.

Never Forget

An attack on our democracy that was incited by the POTUS, Republican Senators, the GOP House Leader and abetted by cops. Are Americans to expect a defiant finale by #BlameDuckDonald as he fades away into the sunset?

Meanwhile, why have none of these given a briefing and answered questions yet?

13 Dangerous Days

Submitted by ub on Thu, 01/07/2021 - 23:13

The last time I can recall a 13 day period that was as dangerous as the period we face today was during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when American leadership and the Soviet Union were involved in an intense political and military standoff in October 1962 over the installation of nuclear-armed misses 90 miles away from the coast of the USA.

Live For Today

Submitted by ub on Thu, 01/07/2021 - 19:01

Life is short and unpredictable. Do the best job in everything you do and with everyone you interact with.

Live life to the fullest means facing your fears with bravery, an open mind, and a lack of prejudice.

Nothing is impossible if you work for it and are determined to achieve your individual goals.

It is only worth the sacrifice if it makes you and it makes your loved ones happy.

Expand your consciousness and have a broader range of life experiences.

Be real and always yourself, your own person, and follow your instincts.

Lock GOP Up

The function of the Congressional so-called leaders is not overturning elections or following orders from any foreign powers. 

Our young Democracy is in great danger without swift action to protect it. Trump incited an attack on Capitol Hill indicating that he is deeply unstable. The American Cabinet must invoke the 25th amendment before it’s too late and he spreads more hate. Congress must also pursue impeachment and removal of the President. This is not the Grand Old Party of Abraham Lincoln.

Domestic Terrorism

Following a long and violent day, US Congress has affirmed President-elect Joe Biden and VP elects Kamala Harris's victory after rioting by a Hoodlum presidential mob on Capitol Hill delayed proceedings and caused multiple deaths and destruction.

POTUS summoned the thugs to Washington’s DC, then spoke at their moron march, offered to walk them over to the US Capitol and abandoned them, but had much praise for them after their lawless and out of order actions.

The First Hurrah

Submitted by ub on Wed, 01/06/2021 - 05:33

We The People voted and American democracy will continue to prevail as our founders designed the process to take place. This is the first hurrah for the Democrats, but it's the last one for President-elect Jow Biden. Many keep asking when this moron marathon end and the answers are technically today, but realistically at the inaugural.
