“En el año 2000 Colombia era un país al borde del abismo. En ese momento el gobierno de Estados Unidos comenzó un plan de apoyo al esfuerzo que ya hacía Colombia, denominado Plan Colombia, que durante 15 años ha tenido el apoyo de 3 administraciones y de los dos partidos. Un apoyo sostenido y decisivo que gracias a la persistencia de nuestro pueblo, al sacrificio económico de los colombianos y a las victorias de nuestras Fuerzas Armadas, logró la transformación de nuestro país y abrió la puerta para el proceso de paz”, explicó el embajador de Colombia en Estados Unidos, Juan Carlos Pinzón.  Continue reading

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day. — December 5, 2015

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day.

johnlennonLet me tell you a  fairy tale about a Pakistani girl who emigrated to Saudi Arabia with her father.  Years later she finds her Prince Charming, an American, marries him.  She gives birth to a child in the United States of America.  Let’s assume the Prince is the father and let’s not ask Maury Povich to do a paternity test on his show.  Couple lives happily ever after. The end.  No.  Not quite like that.  Six months later the baby is an orphan.  The couple, leave their six-month-old baby daughter with relatives, two hours later the couple is killed in a shootout with police SWAT team members.

End the Gun Epidemic in America

It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.

I’m in favor of not restricting responsible people from owning guns.  I have yet to see a gun kill anyone.  There is always a human behind the weapon who does the killing.  The gun is an instrument that needs to be issued with caution to people.  I believe we need a National Identity card where all information about an individual is available to the authorities who will decide if an individual is a candidate for gun ownership.  There should be a waiting period where the individual should attend mandatory safety classes.  If the individual fails to pass these classes  he loses the right to ownership and must forfeit all fees paid.

For all my friends who currently pay for “Medical” Insurance. If you’re over the hill and seeing the end in sight please take the pleasure to waste 5 minutes of your time while you smoke a stoogie and drink a beer. Read this article dated Tuesday, October 8, 2015 USA Today. The days will start to fly by so quickly, that all you will talk about is, the PAST. This is especially true of those who have lived with friends or family. Their children…flying the coop and starting to reproduce themselves. My only hope for the United States of America is that the Senators and Representatives start to live like the people of our great country. That they really start to represent the people before the “People” get tired of the style of comfort the “senators” currently enjoy. Will the people demand an end to Democracy?

April might be the cruelest month, but Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 have to be the cruelest days of the year. That’s when Uncle Sam asks millions of Medicare beneficiaries to review and change, if need be, their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year.

Here’s what you need to know to survive this year’s season.
