Real Good Leaders

Behind every real good leader and great man there are great women that also deserve credit for their good deeds. The idiom is defined as an expression in use at least since the mid-1940s.The women in question usually is a wife or a mother, daughters, mother-in-law; the observation is that no man gets to be "great" in a vacuum, and many women, somewhere, had a hand in the man’s great success. I know, I give thanks for all the women in my life.

Cocaine can be in rock form and would usually powder-ized before ingestion.
Someone who is impatient might not fully powder-ize their dose before they inhale the rocky powder.

Adderall and Ritalin come in capsules for oral administration.
They are probably powder once removed from their capsules.

This looked more like a rock than powder

Not my late brother, Tony, or Russell, Lenny, nor my Tocayos, or longtime friend Kevin, nor neighbors Mario or Josue. None of them are losers or suckers and I thank them as well as the millions of men and women who have served for their service. They're the real heroes.

I am also taking this moment and calling all US citizens who respect decency and appreciate democratic values. Make sure you are registered and take the time to cast your ballots on Election Day.

COVID19 Vaccine

#POTUS appears to be fixated on having a #COVID19 vaccine and reportedly there is little else that captures his attention.

He seems to be desperate to deliver on another one of his empty promises of a vaccine real or not as key to his reelection.

Meanwhile, we know a rushed Vaccine may be a #HOAX. Either not safe, not effective or both.

More likely not safe because figuring out if it works could be fairly easy and straight forward.

They could offer prisoners to get out of Jail if they participate in a vaccine test.
