The Four Amigos, The Four Independents, and Simcha Felder. What’s the Difference? Are They Colorblind?

You should know that there are some very interesting and unexpected things happening in New York politics.

As you know, in this past General Election, with Barack Obama’s name at the top of the ticket, the Democratic Party claimed many, many victories in New York State to the point that the Democrats were prepared to take charge of the State Senate.

Against All Odds

 

You should know that New York State Senate Democratic Majority Leader John Sampson and New York State Democratic Senate Campaign Committee Leader Senator Mike Gianaris have pulled off one of the biggest victories in New York State election history, even when all odds, predictions, criticisms, news reports, editorial pages, and most importantly, Governor Andrew Cuomo – the leader of the State Democratic Party – were against them.

Governor Cuomo’s not only working against the Democratic Party but also against Black and Hispanics in New York State

You should know that recently, Governor Andrew Cuomo publicly endorsed Republican Senator Stephen Saland against his Democratic opponent. Governor Cuomo claims that he did so because Senator Saland voted to legalize gay marriage in New York State.

How many Democrats in New York State are stepping up to criticize our fearless leader as he breaks rank to endorse a Republican opponent for State Senate?

They Even Threw the Kitchen Sink at Her

 

The night of Friday, August 25th, my daughter, New York City Police Sergeant Damaris Díaz, a 19-year police veteran with an unblemished record, was arrested and accused of scratching her boyfriend’s 2005 Honda Accord with her keys. It would probably only take a couple of hundred dollars to repair the damages.

Cuando Llueve Truena

Usted debe saber que a veces, no importa que tan bueno, digno, honesto ó cuales sean sus intenciones, las cosas no siempre salen bien.

En Puerto Rico, hay un dicho que dice que "cuando llueve truena", lo que significa que todo a la vez, viene cayendo sobre sus hombros.

Para mí, comenzó a principios de este verano con la cirugía del transplante de mi rodilla, algo sencillo que se suponía iba a tomar dos semanas, después de lo cual yo estaría como nuevo, pero la primera cirugía se complico. Las cosas no salieron según lo planeado, y tuve que permanecer en el hospital durante cuatro semanas.

WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS

You should know that sometimes, no matter how good, how decent, or how honest your intentions may be, the way things come out might not always seem too good for you.

In Puerto Rico, there is a saying that “when it rains it pours,” meaning that all at once, everything comes falling on your shoulders.

To me, it started earlier this summer with simple knee replacement surgery that was supposed to take two weeks, after which I’d be as good as new, but the first surgery was complicated. Things did not go as planned, and I had to stay in the hospital for four weeks.
