Cuban Independence Day

The Cuban government has announced that it will now officially celebrate independence day El Grito de Yara / Cry of Yara on October 10, 1868, as a declaration of Cuban independence, which began the Ten Years' War. That morning, after sounding the bell that indicated to his slaves it was time for work, they stood before him waiting for orders, and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes announced they were all free men and were invited to join him and his fellow conspirators in a war against the Spanish government of Cuba.

Why does the GOP continually insist on counterproductive practices of deliberately preventing a planned political process? Have Republicans lost their way and are they one step closer to tearing up the USA? Why would they be allowed to succeed?

Republicans have looked the other way on Trump’s scandals and misdeeds, ignoring their majority oversight responsibilities and undermining the entire idea of checks and balances. Our forefathers established our nation under God to embrace a mindset that all men and women are created equal and that no one is above the law.

Mass murder in academia as 10 innocent lives are lost as a result of another senseless school shooting. Why does nothing ever happen in Congress to deal with gun violence? When will corrupt politicians be stopped from accepting mass donations form #NRA?

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes a "Dirty Dozen" list that ranks the most popular fruits and vegetables based on their pesticide residue levels.

By analyzing pesticide residue data from more than 36,000 samples tested by the USDA and FDA, this year EWG found a total of 178 different pesticides on fresh produce samples tested - residues that remain even after items are washed and, in some cases, peeled.

Here's a list of which fruits and veggies you might want to be wary of at the grocery store.

What happens when an administration and their Grand Old Party, which is in control fails to serve We The People? Stay tuned for a blue wave approaching over the horizon.

The message from the billionaire-led donors to @POTUS, @HouseGOP, and @SenateGOP in the Republican-controlled Congress it helped to shape was clear: Pass a tax overhaul, or else. So they did and there lies the problem. They made their bed and now are sleeping in for the time being.

How has The Grand Old Party managed to morph itself from Honest Abe to Tricky Dick to Dotard Don in 150 years?

How Low Can US Go?

Today marks one year since Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel in the Russia investigation. Since then, US Senate investigators released transcripts in which Donald Trump Jr. said he couldn't remember who he talked to for 11 minutes when he called a blocked number after meeting with Russian agents in 2016. One year into the probe, which @POTUS calls a Witchunt there may be many more witches to hunt down before Halloween. Let's see, there are the sons, the son-in-law, the daughter, the VP, and last but not least, The Warlock?

Blood is not always going to be thicker than water and there lies the problem.
As I begin to write this post my eyes are beginning to water and that's no joke, folks.
They say a tear is made of 1% water and 99% feelings and I feel awful after ready the following content.

I fear the people of the world will certainly begin relinquishing our freedom if we allow our so-called leaders to lie to us.
