On the eve of the Super Wolf Moon, which many Americans can fully enjoy, the youngest female US Representative ever elected, who represents my district is developing into a Congressional bright star out of the incoming freshman class of lawmakers from a record-breaking number of women, people of color, and LGBTQ representatives.

They’ve already begun to shake things up. This year’s elections appear to be changing Congress for the better. The midterm election was a @GOP disaster for a former group of House #Republicans.

Trump's Justice Department may be getting yet another Attorney General. This time he's chosen an individual who has also passed the bar and claims he will not be bullied.

William Barr, the attorney general-nominee, endures a mostly sleepy day before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He reiterated that he would let special counsel Robert Mueller finish his work. But he cast doubt on the question of whether Mueller’s report will be made public by the Justice Department.

Goodbye Dolly. Actress Carol Channing has passed away at the age of 97. She died Tuesday morning. Channing's trademark platinum blond hair framed her always smiling face, her wide-eyed innocent style belied a very savvy mind, and her voice was unmistakable.

I enjoy many wonderful memories of my dear parents singing and dancing to her signature song. Thank you very much, Carol, you'll always be the one and only Dolly.

Karma is the rebirth is a derivative concept, and the force generated by a person's actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism to perpetuate transmigration and in its ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person's next existence. What goes around comes around.

Every time We The People are lied to sooner or later and eventually it had to generate consequences. Americans demand the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you, GOD.

Congress returns to DC facing POTUS record-breaking federal government shutdown, after a winter storm slammed The US Capital. But who flows like the river and blows like the wind, without any substance whatsoever, only theatrics and positioning?

There have reportedly been 192 criminal counts filed, with 36 people and entities charged, seven have pleaded guilty, four individuals have been sentenced to prison and the one person convicted as a result of the Mueller probe. Who’s lying this winter?

Big Hugs

As a romantic Latino, I like to hug and kiss, but over the years I have learned the hard way that a good hug has consequences, especially at a work environment and the situation could get dicey, I know from personal experience.

A hug is a form of endearment, universal in human communities, in which two or more people put their arms around the neck, back, or waist of one another and hold each other closely. If more than two persons are involved, it is referred to as a group hug.
