No newspaper, nor any media source with the exception of the New York Post newspaper, published the defeat suffered by the administration of President Barack Obama at the hands of the Supreme Court.

You my dear reader, should know that the Supreme Court voted unanimously; with nine (9) votes in favor and zero (0) against, that the federal Government cannot impose on any religious group or on any church who they choose as its Pastor.

Martin Luther King, Jr. 2012 Greetings

On January 16, 2012, we celebrate the life and legacy of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. I extend warm greetings to my African-American brothers and sisters and all people of good will who follow Dr. King's example.

On April 4, 1968, Dr. King was taken from us, much too quickly and much too violently. Yet, the manner in which he left us is not what I wish to dwell on today. Rather, I believe it is important to reflect on the lessons he left us, the lessons of his life and the lessons of his legacy.

The Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, has decided to prohibit churches and religious groups from using auditoriums in public schools for worship services to our God.

You should know that this is not the first time that Mayor Bloomberg has demonstrated his rejection of everything that has to do with religion.

During the commemoration of the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers- where more than three thousand people died- Bloomberg forbid formal prayers and the participation of religious leaders, including the Catholic church’s Archbishop Timothy Dolan.

Dear Archbishop Dolan:

On this Feast of the Three Kings, I join with New Yorkers to celebrate the news that you have been selected to serve as a Cardinal in the Catholic Church.

Distrito 32 Condado del Bronx, New York

El Miercoles 3 de Enero, me encontre en Albany la Capital del Estado de New York, escuchando al Señor Gobernador Andrew Cuomo exponer los planes que tiene para el Estado de New York.

Entre los planes del Gobernador se encuentra el cambiar la Constitución del Estado para legalizar los Casinos y juegos en el Estado.

El Señor Gobernador, debe saber, como muchos de nosotros sabemos, que los juegos y apuestas, convierten las personas en adictos peores que los adictos a las drogas.

Son muchos los hogares destruidos por el vicio de los juegos, son muchas las familias que se encuentran en la calle al no poder pagar sus rentas porque lo perdieron todo en los juegos.
