Faceless Terrorists. They walk among us, they live among us, they enjoy the full life of liberty and justice.  They hide in the mist, they cowardly put on a mask  and shoot, bomb, and kill the innocent people who are only trying to live their lives and make a better future for themselves and their families. As I look at what is going on in the world, I just can’t seem to understand why so many innocent people have to keep dying.

It does not matter what part of the world you are in, all I keep seeing from these terrorist is nothing but a bunch of cowards who won’t even show their faces. They kill people who have nothing to do with whatever they are fighting for. Please explain to me what’s the point of blowing yourself up? There is no need to kill anyone else if you are going to do it yourself. How would the 72 virgins know?

Our founding fathers fought a Revolutionary War and they never hid their faces and didn’t kill any innocent people to make their points. If people feel that strongly about their beliefs then go after the people who have the power to change things; but not with violence of the hands or with weapons but with words. Words can make many things happen, when the people are adamant about something they should go and be heard.   

When AL QUEDA attacked on 9/11 they did it by air because they were afraid to do it by land. They knew if they had to cross the Bronx they where going to get robbed. When their attempt in 1993 failed they got busted because of their good all “American greed”. They tried to get their deposit back. So today we have to deal with ISIS The faceless terrorist, the cowards; they attack a concert hall, restaurants, and a stadium in France with their masks on they pull off this massacre. When they behead people they wear their masks and when they blow themselves up they put on their masks. I don’t think this is what the prophet Muhammad  had in mind. 

Yes I am a mad American citizen. I am so tired of hearing about so many innocent people dying. I am tired of having the media telling me that I am not safe in my own State. I feel that putting fear into people is the wrong way to go. I feel that finger-pointing at this stage in the game is way too late. I want my Presidential Candidates to tell me their plans of how they are going to keep us safe. I don’t want to hear that we should blame this person or that person, I want to hear that we are doing this and we are doing that to protect our future. To try is to fail and to do is to succeed. In other words I don’t want to hear” well we tried,  but that didn’t work”, let us hear “we are doing what needs to be done”.  What would the average Muslim do with 72 virgins? Just a thought.

Last Sunday I woke up to watch the morning news shows. All I saw from Meet the Press to Face the Nation was about  Donald Trump being on SNL(Saturday Night Live). As a registered voter from the Bronx, I am tired of watching unwanted news. We are getting closer as a nation to making a decision on who our next President will be, and yet I don’t hear anyone of the Candidates speaking on any issues that will affect my community.

I feel that the media is only concentrating on getting ratings and we, the national public are getting the short end of the stick. We all know that the media hypocrisy  goes a long way, but they are the ones who are supposed to keep us informed. Maybe I am a little confused with this election cycle. I know that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both have been on SNL , so are they looking to get nominated for an Emmy Award or are they looking to get nominated for President of The United States?

On my last article “UNITED WE STAND DIVIDED WE FALL”  I wrote that we need a person who is going to do for good for our country. We are a divided nation as it is. We need our Presidential Candidates to unite and not divide. Let our Presidential Candidates tell us their plans to unite this country. How are they going to bring back communities that have been forgotten by our elected officials?

Things at this moment are on a stand still. Our country is severely on a downfall and the rest of the world is watching us implode. From police brutality to Black Lives Matter, education and lets not forget income inequality. We as a nation don’t know where we stand. We are the laughing-stock of the world. No one is taking us seriously anymore. We can’t tend to our own home land, so how can we tend to other problems in another part of the world? The United States is ranked 115th out of 200 countries in this world in education. This should be the biggest issue in our Presidential Debates.

I could care less that Trump and Hillary are on SNL. I want to hear what they plan to do for our country. Let us be the smart nation that cares about our children’s futures. I plan to listen to all candidates and see where they stand on education and income inequality. We as a nation for far too long have ignored the huge problems that have lingered throughout our nation. We would rather be more informed on the latest iPhone than about the issues that effect our country.  It’s a shame that we as a country rank 115th in the world on education.  Is it just me or are other people bothered by this ? Does anyone cares? If so, why are people not raising their voices?  Please let me know if you feel that this is a shame that our country is rank 115th in education. Tell me what you think.

The home of the brave, the land of the free. What a great country we live in. The more I see the news, the more surprised I get day in and day out. Last week we saw a New York City Police officer killed in the line of duty in Spanish Harlem. A few days later we saw people protesting police brutality and a huge Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino calling police officers “murderers”.

We are already a divided nation. It does not matter if you are Hispanic, Black, White, or Asian. We all stereotype one way or another. The funny thing is that it really does not matter what we do for a living. At first glance we see skin color and assumed ethnicity. We look at how they are dressed and once again we assume. Now a days we are quick to judge and come to a conclusion on everything we hear and see on the news. Even if we don’t know the full story, we automatically go with what the newscaster said.

Our country has gone in a different direction that I remember growing up in. When a police officer is killed in the line of duty protecting and serving our community we should not go out and protest police brutality. Shame on those protesters and shame on Mr. Tarantino for financing this event. Please don’t misunderstand what my point is. I know that there are a few bad police officers out in this world. Yes, there are one too many bad apples, but the reality is that the murdered police officer in Spanish Harlem was one of the good ones. Not all of the police officers are bad and most have their own families.

With a Presidential election a year away, this should be the time that people unite. People like Mr. Tarantino should try to organized for good instead of trying to cause more harm. Communication between communities and police departments should be a part of the Presidential debates. People it’s time to have our voices heard. This is the time for real change. We should not let someone like Al Sharpton  lead the low-income communities into more failure and disappointments. He has only been an embarrassment to our communities. We need to take more responsibility for our own actions. We need to open up and realize that we have a huge problem in our own communities and start to take actions to fix them.

myThis is the reality of my world. I keep seeing too many of these poster plastered in my lobby. As a father of two daughter’s I FEAR their safety at all times. I feel we are hostages in our own surroundings. This poster states that a “SEVEN YEAR OLD GIRL WAS SHOT IN THE LEG WHILE WALKING WITH HER FATHER” 

This is my reality. A seven-year old girl is shot in the leg while walking with her dad and there is no outrage from the community. This is why I have an issue with the Black Lives Matter movement. I do understand that they are a civil rights group, but the reality is that our civil rights will always be violated as long as we in the low-income communities keep giving the rest of the world the ammunition they need to keep ourselves down.

Black Lives Matter has national media attention and is meeting with Presidential candidates and this gives them credibility. They are the new voice and face of the progressive inner cities. In order to fix our civil rights violations they must integrate the low-income communities and realize the huge problems we have within. Is the Black Lives Matters afraid to come into our communities?  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t just fight for middle class civil rights, he fought for all of our civil rights. He got his hands dirty and he travelled to all the ghettos of America not just to gain support, but also to educate the poor.

We live in a community of opportunistic and ignorant people. In one hand, today we protest and march on police brutality as friends, and in the other hand we fight and kill each other as enemies. As a hard-working father and husband I’m considered to be an outcast in my own community.  People have a hard time realizing that life is hard and if anyone ever told you otherwise they lied. 

In my community people live as If you are either the hunter or the hunted. Only the strong survive. Being tough and hard only gets you so far in life. People tend to forget that education is the key to success. Knowledge will go a long way and no one can take that from you. Living a thug life is only a myth.

People in low-income communities must learn to take responsibility for their own actions. We must remember that for every action there is a reaction. We must remember that your actions are not only affecting you but they are affecting many other people including your own family. We tend to go on in life with the motto “It’s not important until it happens to me”. That’s when there is a problem. Why should we wait for something to happen? We all know who are the bad apples in our neighborhoods. Are we afraid to make our communities safer for our children?

We are living in a society where people are the ones who make things worse. People in my community like to blame the system but we all know that the system does not make the person, the person makes the system. In other words people complicate things. We have become victims of our own surroundings. We forget that we have the power to change, we can only change one person at a time, and that’s you.

This has been a slow week for our Presidential Campaigns. The only thing I keep hearing about is Hillary Clinton’s emails, and  its starting to sound like a broken record now, and  the possibility of one candidate being a “communist”, and of course that came out of Donald Trump’s mouth. 

Donald Trump also came out this week and said he could have prevented the 9/11 attacks. Anyone who is going to use this day to gain more voters should be ashamed of themselves.  I understand that some people will say or do anything to get what they want and for Mr. Trump and his standards, I didn’t expect him to stoop so low.

We have so many issues in our Country at the moment that need immediate solutions and all he could think about is stopping something that already happened. Maybe our candidates really should look around this wonderful country of ours. We have a high rate of kids dropping out of school because the educational system in low-income communities is under staffed and under funded. There are way too many homeless, and way too many people losing their homes due to foreclosures. We don’t have enough programs in low-income communities to help our kids advancement in technologies.

The more I look around, the more things I see that our Presidential Candidates should really be addressing. We the people for the people, are tired of all the Washington DC propaganda. It is time for our politicians to remember that they are supposed to work for us and its time for the people  to rise up and vote for the proper candidate. Our national debt is way too high and our taxes are out of this world. We are tired of being lied to. 

We need real bipartisan ship to make things work. Before we can unite our country, politicians need to lead by example. In this election cycle we have the power to vote for the right candidate. The one who is not in this for self gain but who is going to think about our children’s future. I have not made up my mind who I am going to vote for, but I am listening to all candidates. I am not leaning one way or the other. Please people pay attention. This is our future, our children’s future. Do not get fooled by people telling you that your vote does not count. People who fear change and people who are satisfied with their surroundings usually are the ones who discourage you from voting.

Hillary Clinton sat down with Black Lives Matter Activists to discuss the policies of Criminal Justice in the African-American community on Friday. I have to confess that I really do not understand what the movement is all about.

When I first heard of them, they said they wanted to let people know on how police departments treat minorities in the low-income communities. Then I saw them interrupting Bernie Sanders in one of his rallies, and by the way with two very disrespectful girls hijacking the microphone. On another occasion I saw the group marching down a street chanting “PIG’S IN A BLANKET FRY THEM LIKE BACON” speaking about police officers.

I think that any group that wants to fight for Justice and Equality in the low-income communities should start at the root of the problem. I think its great that this movement is getting national attention but I feel they are going about it in all the wrong ways.   

In the last month there have been at least two shootings, with one of them being a black male shot in the head. In another incident a black male got his face sliced by another black male in my neighbor hood in the South Bronx. I have not seen or heard anyone from the Black Lives Matter movement come to protest any of this violence.

If Black Lives matter so much, why are they not in our neck of the woods? We have great people in our community who keep their noses clean, work hard, and do what they need to do to maintain their homes. Yes we also have the entitled people or what I like to call “the give me  people”.  Not all of us are looking for a hand out. We are just looking for peace of mind where we feel safe and secure.

My life matters as much as anyone else’s. As a male Hispanic from the South Bronx my life is just as valuable as the person standing next to me. The person might be white, black, yellow or green. Bullets do not discriminate what color you are. No child should die for riding their bike. When bullets fly and there’s no place to hide, the soul of a child is lost in the sky.  A hard-working man walks towards the train, to have a bullet enter his brain. These are the realities of our world in the South Bronx. I have not seen or heard from the Black Lives Matter movement but I do know my life really matters.

We must first start at the root of the problem. We need to start by admitting and realizing that we have a huge black on black crime problem in our communities. Before we go to the deep end of America to protest police brutality let us protect our children from dying on our streets. Let us unite and be organized.

Another crazy week in the United States. We see another mass shooting in Oregon that left nine people dead. I don’t understand the news media and some elected officials on how can they just look at this as another mental health issue. People are already arguing not to mess with our Second Amendment.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Can someone please tell me what militia do we have now? Why are people so opposed to more efficient background checks on people? Why should mental health issues not be a part of rejecting a gun license to someone? And last but not least why is Rudy Giuliani saying that gun control would not reduce crimes? Is he not seeing the same things we are? Mass shootings are happening more often.  This is not and should not be just a normal thing that happens in our country. Yet Giuliani is all for the Stop and Frisk of minorities in NYC.

As a minority in NYC myself, why should my Fourth amendment right be violated, and why should someone from Oregon with mental health issues be granted a gun license? Just because I fit the description of  90 percent of the dark-skinned Hispanic in NYC. That should not give police officers the right to detained and search me without my consent.

The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights that prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and requires any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.

No matter on what side you stand, we all must realize that we have a huge problem in our country. Living in the South Bronx we deal with black on black crimes all the time. The reality is that when you look at all the killing in my neck of the woods, they are all being committed by people with mental health issues. They all have mental health issues and it does not matter if you’re in the Bronx or in Oregon. In one of my previous articles named “GOVERNMENT FAILURE” I wrote on how the government blames the insurance company and the insurance company blames our government. It’s time to stop playing games with our lives. It Is time to do more and get more serious about our gun control laws. I have two daughters and I fear for their safety when they leave the house. How many more people have to die?

Let’s have Rudy Giuliani speak face to face with the families of the nine people killed in Oregon and tell them that having stricter gun control laws would not have  affected their loved one’s out come. Let’s have him tell them that this happened because of mental health issues and there is nothing we could do to fix this. I think the only thing people are asking for is adding a simple question on a gun permit application. “Have you ever been diagnosed with any mental illness?” 

My advice to all politicians is that we should consider better background check on all American’s. If you have ever been diagnosed with any mental problem you should not be granted a gun license, let’s legislate, that if you are caught with an illegal gun in your possession you should served a minimum of 15 years in prison.  Whether is your First offense or not.

Dr. Ben Carson on the last debate was the only Presidential candidate to say “I stress the pediatric part of my career because the reason that I’ve gotten involved in this race is because I’m very concerned about the future of our children.” I believe that our children are our future and in this election cycle I feel that it’s not about what our next President is going to do for me but as what he/she is going to do for our children’s futures.

As I look at my own daughters, who have been back to school for 3 weeks and  have had more days off than they had school days, I understand that because of scheduled holidays they need to have school closed.  The future of my girls depends on the best education we are able to provide for them. I feel my girls are in a crucial part in their lives when it comes to education and this is a crossing point for them, My oldest is in high school and my youngest is in Jr. high school. Having so many days off in a 3 week period to me only slows them down and takes them out of rhythm. 

I wonder if Education is on any of the Presidential candidates minds While we know that Dr. Ben Carson said that he is worried about our children’s futures, he did not elaborate on what worries him. I know that some schools in NYC are over crowded and are not staffed the way they would like, at times you have too many kids in one classroom and teachers try the best they can with our children. I also have to extend the blame to a lot of the parents who do not keep track of what their kids are learning or doing in school. Some parents do not even know that there are 35 students in their child’s classroom. I know it’s not easy for single mom’s or single dad’s to do this but the reality is that we all must make that sacrifice and take a few minutes each day an investigate what our kids are learning and doing in school.

My wife and I have always kept an open dialogue with our daughters when it comes to school. When we didn’t understand what type of homework they had, we just simply googled it. If that didn’t give us the answer we would go straight to the teacher and ask, when parents pick up their kids in school or at the after school program there is always a teacher or someone there who might help you. Learn not to be embarrassed and ask. Leave your ego at the door. My mother always used to tell me, that we learn something new every day. 

The decisions we make in this and  future election cycles are going to affect our children. It’s not about what they are going to do for us it’s about what they are going to do for our younger generations. We are either going to get them into a bigger deficit or balance things out for them. No matter how you vote, please try not to choose the person who is going to tell you how they are going to fill your pockets with gold, but vote for the person who has a legitimate plan for the future.

On January 20th 1969 Richard Nixon took office as our 37th President of The United States. As amazing as that sounds that year would prove to be more amazing than ever just ask The New York Metropolitans.


Amazin’: Remembering the Miracle Mets

The ’69 “Amazin’ Mets” of Seaver, Clendennon, Koosman, Kranepool, Jones, Agee, Grote and the rest are part of pop-culture lore as surely as Electric Ladyland and the police riots at the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968 — not because they were the most dominant team of the age, but precisely because they weren’t. They were the Bad News Bears of the majors . . . except that, in the Mets’ case, they actually won it all in the end.

In 2015 we are embarking in our own amazing Presidential race. We have Trump, Bush, Hillary, and Sanders which one of these people will win in 2016? God only knows who but I have to say when it comes to baseball we have our own amazing story with our 2015 New York Mets with Harvey, Cespedes, Granderson, Duda, and Wright.

If history repeats itself, then this is one for the record books. With all the injuries the 2015 Mets had to endure and still be in 1st place with just a few games left in the regular season I think I could say there is something amazing about this team. Once again this is a team that defies the odds and  as of late they seem like they can’t lose a game even if they try just ask the Atlanta Braves.

This is not a Franchise that spends a lot of money to buy players like our other New York Teams. This is more of a home-grown base team where their players move up the ranks and through their farm system. The Stadium is built more as a family venue than a corporate venue. The tickets are cheaper and to be honest it allows low-income families to enjoy a great day at the park. The Food is also out of this world in Citi field.

My concern about the Presidential race is that if someone like Trump gets into the White House we might not be able to see players like Bartolo Colon, Wilmer Flores, Yoenis Cespedes or any other Central or Southern America players. He might just deem them as illegals and might just deport them out of the Country.  The one good thing I see so far from Mr. Trump is that he is making this election cycle pretty interesting, he is bringing in people who would never be interested in politics. He is making politics fun and he is really getting voters registration up. No matter how you might feel about him you have to give him credit for being so outspoken and saying things other politician won’t  say. 

Just like Mr. Trump there is a nice buzz going around NYC with the Mets this year. I see and hear die-hard NY Yankees fans speaking about the Mets more than their own team. They speak about Wilmer Flores (NY METS) On his dedication and heart-felt crying for not being traded. They speak about Bartolo Colon being a 42 year old player with one of the best records in the major leagues this year as a starting pitcher. They also speak on the Mets acquiring Yoenis Cespedes the new “New York City Home run King”.

Like Donald Trump the 2015 New York Mets team has the We don’t quit attitude just like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders The New York Mets are in it to win it. Many have doubted them and plenty have dismissed them but do not sleep on the New York Mets as they are getting the support of all Americans. Like in 1969 no one expected the Mets to win the World Series and many believe that the 2015 Mets wont win it neither but I guess time will tell just like soon we will find out who will be our next President.
