A Doctor’s Abandoned Journey Into Isolated Puerto Rico


America, you are failing your citizens

Repeating Islands

A report by Richard Fausset for the New York Times.

Dr. Lissette Gutierrez is normally not one to curse. But when the S.U.V. she was traveling in hit a rut and bounced wildly on a mud road carved into a mountainside — a steep decline inches to her right, the pounding rain all around — an expletive escaped her lips like some rare ugly moth.

It was Saturday afternoon, and Dr. Gutierrez was part of a small medical convoy trying to get to an isolated community called Don Alonso, in the mountainous center of Puerto Rico. There was word that no doctor had been to the place since Hurricane Maria had roared over the island Sept. 20, triggering mudslides throughout the largely rural municipality of Utuado, at least one of them deadly.

Dr. Gutierrez, 45, a gynecologist, is a Puerto Rican living on Long Island, and her decision to…

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA TO DRUMPF

‘You’re going straight to hell’

The actions of the ‘so-called president’ towards the human crisis that is involving Puerto Rico after being battered and ravaged by Hurricane María couldn’t have been any worse. Any Puerto Rican could have said the same things, over worse, about the lack of credible and adequate rescue and restoration response.

I feel just like Lin-Manuel.

The American government has totally failed the 3.4+ millions of American citizens who will in this possession/colony/territory of the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A.

WARNING!! 

Anne Frank Centre warns of ‘alarming parallels’ between Drumpf’s America and Hitler’s Germany

The human rights group compared Drumpf’s Presidency to the ‘escalating steps of oppression’ that led to the Holocaust.

A human rights group inspired by Anne Frank has drawn comparisons between Drumpf’s America and Adolf Hitler’s Germany.

The Anne Frank Centre for Mutual Respect warned of “alarming parallels” between the ‘so-called President’ and the Nazi leader, likening the present-day US to the “escalating steps of oppression” that led to Holocaust in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

With heavy heart


This will not be a fun post, I have postponed writing this for weeks but I can not postpone it anymore. Times are too dangerous right now. I once made a promise, I repeated that promise several times. It is time to own up and speak out because NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!

I have been following developments worldwide and in the USA for the past months and can come to only one conclusion. The world has gone mad, the USA is in good fashion leading this by example and somehow my generation and the directly preceding generations have forgotten about 4o/45.  Let me give a little reminder. Images might not be suitable for all audiances

The above image is a list of patches the prisoners had to wear in concentration camps. Don’t make any mistakes. It was not just Jewish people that got in there. The Nazis killed millions of Roma and Sinti, gay people (or believed to be gay people), Mentally disabled and physically disabled. Basically, if you were not an “Ubermensch” you could end up in some sort of concentration or labor camp. Neither of those was a fun place to be

These victims above are survivors from Auschwitz. Auschwitz was not “a camp” but a collection of 3 camps near the town of Auschwitz. There was Auschwitz I also called “stamlager” (base camp, Auschwitz II also called Auschwitz II-Birkenau and designated “vernichtungslager” (Destruction camp) and finally Auschwitz III Monowitz which was an “Arbeitslager” or labor camp.

The above chamber is what 1000’s of the innocent man, woman, and children got to see. This is a so called gas chamber. This was not done in a “friendly and humane” way. The people got to undress and got shoved in there dozens at a time. In some cases, they got told that they would have to “shower”. Imagine for a second if you will. Being completely naked between dozens of strange people. Man, woman, and children together. Surrounded by soldiers with machine guns shouting and punching people. You get crammed into a room that is completely bare except for some shower heads or in many cases just some pipes sticking out of the ceiling. A foul smell in the air if like hundreds of people before you had vomited and defecated in the room. When everybody is in the doors go shut and the light goes out. The last thing you hear and perhaps do is shouting, screaming, crying until it get’s weaker and softer and then stops. Too graphic for ya?

How about this then. The graves of 8301 soldiers that gave their lives for the freedom of my country and many other countries in the process

I don’t mind using a stock photo for this one as it is taken at a veterans parade in Wageningen which is what counts. Part of my country was liberated by the Americans, however, they stopped a bit too soon resulting in the most gruesome winter the Dutch had ever seen. It is gone down in history as the “Honger winter” (Winter of starvation). and the rest of the country got liberated in May 45 by the Canadians and Polish. Until this day and many years to come, we will remain grateful to all those that were part of the freedom in Europe. Imagine if you will being one of the last remaining veterans that fought against the Nazis, lost friends, health and who knows what more. Imagine knowing that in Europe everybody, even the kids, know what happened, imagine sitting at home watching television and coming across this

No I can not stay silent. Your parents and grandparents are the reason I can live free without a dictator telling me what I have to “believe”. Without my friends needing to hide because they are Gay, or Jewish, or Roma. Free speech my ass. There have always been rules regarding free speech. We all know you can’t just say anything. Hate speech, regardless who it is coming from, does not fall under “free speech”. Calls for violence against certain groups in society does not fall under free speech. for NOBODY.

YES… we have to fight Nazis and fascists but fighting them with our fists is lowering ourselves to their standards. Always remember. We are with more and I kind of assume that we are smarter. The only way to beat racists, Nazis and fascists is to lead by example. By showing them they are wrong and we are right. By showing compassion for our brothers and sisters of other beliefs, race or sexual orientation. By doing things their Bible tells them to do (“their” because it is one of their main drives). Feed the hungry, house the homeless, teach the children, be “my brother’s keeper” (or sister). By being sensitive to race (as in understanding that life is different for someone that has another color than my crispy white skin) without letting this get into a “race thing” (if that makes sense)

Fight with words, fight with actions. Don’t fight with fists… someone has to be the first to stop, it seems to me that the most sensible group should start. Hate is a downward spiral, hate leads to war, don’t get into its grips. THAT imo is also a part of #RESIST because that POTUS of yours is way to happy with yall fighting because it gives him validation, don’t give him validation…. RESIST

The President Is Acting Out His Last Hurrah At The Phoenix Rally


One of my favorite bloggers…. FOLLOW HER…. really… do it…. now 😛

I did not watch the republican President Donald Trump deliver his diatribe to his followers at last night’s rally in Phoenix, AZ. But I hear it was quite a performance to where his competence to serve as president comes more into question.

Here’s the rest of the story….

On Jenna Johnson of the Washington Post penned the following report, “As Trump ranted and rambled in Phoenix, his crowd slowly thinned.”

Excerpts:

“Just before President Trump strolled onto the rally stage on (August 22, 2017), four speakers took turns carefully denouncing hate, calling for unity and ever so subtly assuring the audience that the president is not racist.”

“Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson proclaimed that “our lives are too short to let our differences divide us.” Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., led everyone in singing a few lines of “How Great Thou Art.” Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed for…

The US President Emperor Is Being Observed In all His Ugly Nakedness


Gronda Morin

newtoon.jpgThe one good thing that the republican President Donald Trump did for all the American peoples is that he finally told the truth on August 15, 2017. Thanks to the GOP, 80% Evangelicals and White supremacists with help from the US press, “we the people” are stuck with a racist Russian asset in the White House as president, and we will be forever shamed as he continues to thrash this once highly esteemed office.

On August 14, 2017, President Trump equated those who were fighting against the perpetrators of hate with all the hate mongering groups like White supremacists, White nationalists, racists, neo-Nazis, and Islamophobic haters. The GOP and Evangelical peoples who have been supporting and covering for him, have NOW all witnessed the president speak without the mask of verbal euphemisms and fake niceties. He has clearly demonstrated that he backs the racists/ haters of this country.

A Gay Dad Sounds Off on the Day Donald Trump Ruined America


I am not blogging much nowadays but this is an important time. Not only LGBT need to stand up and voice, also allies need to step up. I hope I still have enough followers . Check below story and reblog/share. RESIST

On Wednesday, Donald Trump, the master manipulator and “line crossing” provocateur went too far. Has he literally ruined America? Maybe not yet, but what he did today starts that process.

He took a major step over the line of decency towards doing so. I mean this in a way that is greater than all of his misogyny and racism previously. Today he went further.

I admit, I was blurry when I first saw the news. It was just before 6am, and my smartphone beeped with a notice of the morning headline. It stated that Donald Trump had proclaimed a ban of transgender people from serving in the military. I blinked my eyes. Surely, this was a gag, “fake news”, an alarmist Alt-Left site exaggerated the already outlandish behavior of a reality TV star gone wild.

It was the Washington Post. Worse, the news was true.

I have become somewhat jaded…
