We All Latinos Are Tacos According To Jill Biden
TACOS DE CARNITAS
Supposedly Jill Biden has a Ph.D. in education. Then, I ask myself, why is she so ignorant and uneducated? Jill Biden said that Texas Hispanics are as “unique” as “breakfast tacos” during a speech in San Antonio on Monday, July 11.
TACOS QUESADILLAS MADE WITH BEEF AND CHEESE
“Raul helped build this organization with the understanding that the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength,” Biden said in her speech.
Does Jill know where tacos were born and created? After all, she has a Ph.D. in “education”. Tacos are Mexican. They have a long history in my beloved México. Their history is pre-hispanic since México was known as the Grand Tenochtitlán. Hernán Cortéz was the first Governor of New Spain who celebrated a “taquiza”, a big party where all kinds of tacos are served to hundreds of people. This first taquiza happened in 1524, 500 years ago in the heart of Tenochtitlán-México. TACOS ARE MEXICAN NO LATINOS, JILL!
TACOS AL PASTOR
We, Latin-Americans along the American continent, from México to Argentina, including Puerto Rico in the US, share, celebrate and RESPECT our differences and similarities. I am sure that many Chileans or Argentineans, as well as Mexicans, are not happy about the racism and stereotyping in the First Lady’s comment. I am not.
Does she even know the vast diversity of the Mexican culinary kitchen? I am sure she doesn’t.
FINAL NOTE: Trying to insult a Mexican person by calling her/him a “beaner”, is NOT an insult. Some racist Americans think so. I laugh at it. They are only kidding themselves if they believe that is an insult. It’s funny actually and frankly, stupid. NOW, if Dr. Jill Biden thinks that tacos represent all the Latin community, or any community at all, sorry to tell you, Jill, you are not very smart. And yes, I will be willing to teach you a little bit of history. I want to discuss with you several aspects of your uneducated agenda. Give me 30 seconds, and I will give you an hour. I won’t be the loser.

INSPIRATIONAL Roosevelt: I’m Still Standing – Strong Minded Franklin D Roosevelt You Can Do It Too!
Franklin D Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States of America, died at the age of 63, on April 12, 1945. I’m not going to tell you data about him and bore you to tears. We all know we can “Google” his name and find his bio anywhere in the interwebs.
What I want to tell you today about FDR is what I think about how strong-minded he was. His compassion and empathy towards humanity, and how he inspires me to help others and stand strong!
I don’t know if you are familiar with him going to “Warm Springs” in Georgia after he got poliomyelitis (most commonly known as polio). His depression about losing his ability to walk, his struggle to find his way back to society and move around, crippled him even more than his disability to walk.
It is important that I emphasize what I mentioned above: his depression and struggle crippled him more than the disease itself. I tell you why: the mental ability to overcome a physical challenge marks how a person will develop a strong or weak character. That mental ability will make anyone regain confidence, emotional strength, and power to go on in life with an unbreakable positive attitude.
Well, in Warm Springs – the only hospital devoted solely to the treatment of poliomyelitis victims in the world -, he found himself and discovered the existence of many others with the same illness he had. These patients were coming from different backgrounds and privileges -or the lack of- in society: rich, poor, with education or without it, children, young adults, and adults, all suffering from poliomyelitis.
Franklin D Roosevelt shared his time with children and learned from them. He admired the courage of little children and how they never gave up. These children were strong-minded and strong-spirited and walked, with extreme difficulty and pain but with a huge smile, and that my readers, is what we all should do every day of our lives.
While many succumb to the trauma of failure and lose confidence and performance, resilient individuals rise again, learn from their failure and improve their performance. It takes passion for life, will, and a positive-stubborn attitude to never give up, to never give in.
Poliomyelitis deepened and grounded FDR. It made him a champion of children with polio—an effort that led to the March of Dimes and the later Salk and Sabin vaccines—and for that matter a champion of all people who suffered hardship, physical, mental or emotional.
Always remember: While you are alive and breathing, make sure you are able to say “I am still standing”.
IMPORTANT NOTE from Dr. Castro:
Just because I admire the man who he was, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, please don’t assume that I am a Democrat. Or because I have expressed my admiration for some Republican people in the past, it does not mean that I am a Republican. I admire the human being, no matter his political affiliation nor religion, or the lack thereof.
I am a true freedom thinker who does not like labels. I don’t follow hypocrites. I admire what I think it’s admirable to me, and criticize what I sincerely think has to be denounced as a bad policy, a harmful action, or a crime

Donald Trump Radicalization In America – With UPDATES-
1. House to Move to Impeach Trump After Push to Have Pence Remove Him From Office
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will introduce a resolution on Monday; ‘We will act with urgency’
2. House to call on Pence and Cabinet to use 25th Amendment and move to impeach Trump
I saw this coming long time ago, and made a post about it last June 2020: Link>>READ HERE
When you allow the beast to rule, you create more hate and destruction. Extremist content on the web was raw material for the riot and insurrection that happened last January 6.
Now, -link>> the US Capitol Hill is gated in, there is less freedom for the people who respect the law to get close to such a beautiful and historic building, but a necessary measure to keep the domestic terrorists outside and protect the US Capitol edifice and the human beings (lawmakers, cleaning personal, secretaries, general help, etc) who work there.
We have to ask ourselves: Who is responsible for this? The pro-Trump media is part of the problem, that is for sure, but also the people who believe Trump’s lies and conspiracy theories. Now I wonder if this attack on life and freedom by Trump and Trump enablers is going to stop here or it’s going to continue and grow.
There are already 128 lawmakers who are radicalized. even after the terror on Capitol Hill happened and 5 people died, including one police officer. They voted for the objections to decertify some of the electoral votes. This was promoted by Trump.
Domestic terrorists making fun of precious history in Capitol Hill
It is very dangerous to have so many radicalized lawmakers, very dangerous for the future of the United States of America. I hope and wish that people, in their great wisdom, can vote them out before anything else or worse happens.
The green, white and black flag is based on a design similar to a Nazi flag.

CONCLUSION: Years of trump lies culminated in bloodshed.
Gratitude Message to My Followers from all over the World
I want to say THANK YOU to all my readers, followers and contacts from all over the world: Brazil, North America (USA, Mexico, Canada) Germany, Spain, England, Russia, Italy, Middle East, all Europe and all Latin America for following my site, for liking my Pinterest photos, for sharing your knowledge and business in Linkedin, for reading my tweets.
Donald Trump Hate Groups Increase in America – San Diego Holds Many
…And United States of America so called president (yes, with ‘p’ lower case) is out of control. It is chaos reigning in the world right now. If there is chaos in the USA, there is chaos in the world, simply because the US has been the leader of the globe for decades. And that -chaos- is not good for the USA and it is not good for the planet.
I cannot call him “President Trump”, because he might have the title but he does not behave like one. I have no respect for him at all. He is crude, rude, low class, vulgar, even perverse. Yes, I have been quiet, but he has gone too far. He is absolutely and irrefutable out of his mind, saying things like “there is a vaccine for AIDS” …. WHAT?! When I heard this, how can I say it without insulting him badly? ah, no, impossible to find a decent word.
What I cannot comprehend is why there are still many people who believe the words that come out of his mouth and follow him to his rallies. He is not “going to drain the swamp” people, because HE IS part of the swamp. He gives tax relieves to his friends. He hasn’t revealed his taxes because he has powerful friends who protect him from doing so, because it is good for what ever they are doing with him and through him: M.O.N.E.Y.
Worst of all, he has created a climate of hate, terrible fear and death. Frankly, I am making this post as a statement of my opposition to killing and the suppression of life. As a medical doctor I have the obligation and responsibility to save lives, to extend the lifespan of my patients, I make their lives more comfortable and help them live with physical and mental dignity.
Trump, with the hate that invades his tiny little mind, is infecting humanity and it’s my obligation to say it so, as a doctor. As a medical doctor I oppose the use of choke-holds, I oppose brutality and aggression against ANY human being. I will NEVER agree to the use of deadly force to control any type of situation (those that many hate groups, consider it to be “normal”!) Those are excuses to kill because of hate and rage.
Let’s teach love and compassion
These are some reports about HATE GROUPS in the US since the Trump Era
White nationalist hate groups in the US have increased 55% throughout the Trump era, according to a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and a “surging” racist movement continues to be driven by “a deep fear of demographic change”.
“Though the experts appear to understand the threat, they remain hamstrung by the Trump administration, which has hired members of hate groups into high-level positions and has on its staff people like Stephen Miller, the senior policy adviser in the White House who has long been allied with anti-immigrant hate groups,” it said.
The law center said the number of hate groups rose by 7 percent last year to 1,020, a 30 percent jump from 2014. That broadly echoes other worrying developments, including a 30 percent increase in the number of hate crimes reported to the F.B.I. from 2015 through 2017 and a surge of right-wing violence that the Anti-Defamation League said had killed at least 50 people in 2018.
20 Surprising Fun Cat Facts – Abraham Lincoln Loved Cats!
CATURDAY FACTS – INTRO
ABRAHAM LINCOLN and his LOVE for CATS!
United States President, Abraham Lincoln, loved all animals, especially cats. He loved cats so much that his wife once said that cats were her husband’s hobby.
The then, Secretary of State William Seward, gave two kittens on Lincoln as a White House gift. The President loved to spend hours just petting the cats and talking to them.
He fed his kitties at the table. One time he used a gold fork to do that, which was too much for Mrs. Lincoln. His response?
“If a gold fork was good enough for former President Buchanan, it’s good enough for Tabby.”
AMAZING FUN CAT FACTS:
Cats have over 20 muscles that control their ears.
A group of cats is called clowder.
Cats have more data storage than an iPad.
Abraham Lincoln had four cats in the White House.
Adult cats only meow to communicate with humans.
Some cats are ambidextrous. Although 40 to 50% of female cats are typically right-pawed, while male cats are typically left-pawed: Psychologists Deborah Wells and Sarah Millsopp of Queen’s University Belfast tested 42 house cats — 21 males and 21 females — to determine whether they favored their right or left paws when performing tasks of varying difficulty. Their report on the results has been accepted for publication in the journal Animal Behavior of Science Direct (play with your kitties and let me know if this is true. I did it and couldn’t prove it, 🤩 but then again, I’m not a Psychologist).
SO SORRY dog lovers: A cat’s cerebral cortex (the part of the brain in charge of cognitive information processing) has 300 million neurons, compared with a dog’s 160 million. (BTW, (I love dogs too 🐶).
Cats are very picky creatures about their “bathroom.” If you have more than one feline, you should have one litter box for each one of them.
They are the only mammals that cannot taste sweetness (no cake for my kitty-cats on my birthday).
A cat can jump six times his length in a single bound.
Cats love routine. Any change in their routine makes them mad, upset. Some cats get sick, they can vomit or refuse to eat.
When Cats Leave Their Poop Uncovered It’s a Sign of Aggression.
Kneading is a sign of contentment and happiness. Cats knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate the let-down of milk.
There are currently 45 Hemingway cats living at the writer’s former home in Key West, Fla.
A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint.
The first cat in space was a French cat named Felicette (a.k.a. “Astrocat”) In 1963, France blasted the cat into outer space. Electrodes implanted in her brains sent neurological signals back to Earth. She survived the trip.
A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.
In several countries of Europe and North America black cats are a sign of bad luck, but in Britain and Australia black cats are considered lucky!
Usually, a cat has about 12 whiskers on each side of its face. Have you counted them already? 😇
A cat’s jaw can’t move sideways, that is why a cat can’t chew large chunks of food.
