A Not So Hypothetical Zombie Apocalypse

Tampa - Fl ; It is not strange to think about all the possible futures regarding any incident about biological welfare and genetic manipulation, think about The Walking Dead, The Night of the Living Dead or any movie with zombies and viruses spread through the environment. The reality could be even scarier than the fiction because if a multinational that is dedicated to warfare discovers a string of the venom of the Jewel Wasp and could develop a potential threat that would mimic a Resident Evil in real life and the consequences could be catastrophic.

Reality is not stranger than fiction, the problem is when fiction puts hypothetical scenarios that aren't far away from reality; let's think about Raccoon City and Resident Evil games, where a string of the T-Virus caused the demise of an entire city in matter of  months and thinking about that possibility to be used as counter attack in modern wars it is scary but not weird to happen.

Let's explain another scenario, a more realistic one but observed on a micro event; under the correct circumstances people would be acting as mindless drones, this scenario could be split into two sets of consequences with similar reactions. The first line can be classified with the influence of opinion leaders that would move the masses to fulfill their own agenda, i.e. A pastor would preach on his sermon to vote for certain politician, creating a lobbying situation, his followers would listen to him without generating any questions if the people get questioned why they follow their opinion leader, they will react in a negative way without generating their own doubts regarding about their decisions. Example number two goes with sports.

If you place an entire group of people in an enclosed space, where they can satisfy their most primal instincts specially at the moment of sports because if you offend their team then they will attack you with no provocation or if you are in a game and their team lose, there is a chance that the true fanatics will become zombies and verbally and physically assault people from their opposite teams, much as zombies would attack any helpless victims.

There shouldn't be fear of the un-dead themselves, as a wild beast they could be in theory, they can be put down without any inconvenience if their motor skill center is shut down or damaged enough to avoid them keep moving, but zombies do exist albeit not in the way as they are portrayed in the media, as reality offers a more macabre panorama where puts the zombies as mere puppies.

The LGTBQ Victories of Obama for his Second Term - The DOMA Wall

Glaad Image
Tampa, Fl -- It won't be the end of the world, it will be the beginning of fair treatment to the entire population but with every small victory and even if at the DOMA is completely overturned there are still paradigms to break down in the most closed-minded sectors of the population that still see any advance of social rights as a corrupted form of socialism because they don't know the correct definition and see every help, every advance to the population as a form of selling the country.

The main victory of Obama on a long term in terms of social progress will be the repeal of the DOMA which was signed by a Bill Clinton on 1996, showing that even if two people are from the same party they can have a juxtaposition on their beliefs about civil rights but slowly Obama has taken steps into overthrown one of the biggest mistakes that was vetoed by a fellow Democrat.

If it wasn't for DOMA there could be a federal victory regarding the recognition of benefits to spouses, one of those examples that could be turned into a memory are the recognition of benefits for the armed forced spouses who are not entitled because of DOMA on the benefits of their better halves but at the end the overturn of DOMA will be in the hands of the Supreme Court but in the meantime Obama can continue his work in landing benefits to all soldiers equally but the situation can turn complex for the President as the legislative body is composed by the opposition but if he aims towards a congressional law then his odds can turn for better as well the lives of many people.

Employment Non-Discrimination Act can be an issue and one of the failed attempts on the Romney campaign when the former candidate offered jobs to all Americans but the speech of Romney was only half way truth to the reality that many red States such as Florida are oriented regarding discrimination based on sexual orientation and is a common practice to fire someone for being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender and the person who gets fired in question have little to no protection to claim back because of the States laws regarding discrimination. That could be one more crucial victories if it's achieved on a Federal Level as it can grant protection to many individuals who feel threaten by their employers because of any biased speech any employee can give against their persona. Is not fair that even 30% of the States offer some protection, people are still getting discriminated against their personas.

Overall there has to be a reform to the immigration laws, that probably could strike as one of the biggest achievements of the Obama administration if DOMA is overturn, yet so far had been a few winning cases of bi-national couples and it could be a major victory because families beyond the hetero-normative standard can improve the economy when the nucleus is kept together and they are offered protection from the government. If Obama can realize that beyond who the person is, what color of his skin, religion, gender identity, ethnicity, if he achieves a general protection and defends the constitution even further then he will be remembered as one of the greatest civil leaders and the first President of the United States who stood for the LGTBQ community.

Open Letter: The Populist Movements Around the Americas and an Unbalanced Check of Powers

The situation that scares me the most is not related to which man wins the Presidential Election of 2012, the situation that scares me the most are the focus of the political groups who will have a complete dominion over the politics of the country and will leave the balance of checks in a lose-lose situation as it has been in the last 3 terms. About 5 years ago when I was in school a professor who dictate Colombian Law 101 said that - Politics are cyclical and right now the phenomenon of the populist movements it is raising slowly on South America and  in the next ten years these ultra conservator but yet plutocratic movements are going to spread everywhere in the continent in different fashions and when the populist movement hit the United States then we are going to be screwed .-

At first I though he was referring to only Chavez and Fidel but as the years passed his words always kept striking my head and memories because what he said was right, populist movements come in different envelopes and in the case of the United States it goes with the face of the  Tea Party Caucus which at glance they look only a bunch of conservator who trash everything that is not on their side but when you inspect the rhetoric of the party are not different from the right-wing plutocratic ideas of Fidel and Chavez which they promote protection of the freedom but at the end they are just a group who tries to appropriate the wellness of a country by any-mean.

People identify socialism with a really biased concept of the pre-wall Soviet Union, people tend to speak out loud without even reading or identifying different sources and they speak without even analyzing their words, that's my worst fear as a communicator, a fear which encompass a mass that has no clue what they are saying because they cannot think beyond the interest of the formal and informal opinion leaders of their communities; the concept people have about socialism at least in the United States from what I've seen by mere observation is annexed mostly to communism but yet Americans in general they don't think of any concept or scenario beyond their territorial borders unless it is shown on the news.

There has to be a major update in the constitution as the law is to fragile regarding social and economical contemporary issues but overall there has to be a major revamp on how we educate younger generations in order that they can think beyond what families and social groups say about how life has to be. Probably the problem is radicalized on the binary component of the democratic process because of the tradition only two parties seem to have validance on what to say around the motherland but yet it can be used in order to favor any politic or amendment with a religious overtone in order to favor your image or personal interest. My fear with Romney is all that yet is not with Romney himself as with the people who wants him in the Office, my fear lies the noneducational literary aspects and lack of attention to research further about a man who is not different from the political scum of Venezuela, Cuba, Ecuador and the Middle East the only difference is he wears a tie and looks presentable but his rhetoric's' change every time he address his followers, is not a sign of evolution, is a sign of weakness as the man cannot keep his own ideas straight, he is not even representing on what I sense the Mormon community, as Mitt shows only his arrogance and lack of interest in the community at the moment he open his mouth, yet he keeps saying a five point plan to create 12 million jobs, there is one big problem with those 12 million jobs, they can't satisfy the demand for middle uneducated class who live by manual labor and yet of 300 million who live in the United States, the 47% are encompass in those numbers and creating 12 million jobs who are going to be full and part time is just an unrealistic expectation because the economy is cyclical and also in the States it is centralized on the bureaucratic rats of Wall-Street but it is more unrealistic that people who are supporting him think he is right and he is not, from all the intellectuals who are in more capacity in the GOP to be a Commander-In-Chief put Romney on the map, but it could be worse as Michelle Bachmann could be the one competing with Obama.

The Problematic of Panhandling in Tampa: No Real Solutions a Year Later

Tampa, Fl -- It's been a year since the war on panhandling was supposedly won, but the real solution on a problematic that affects third world countries as well big cities on the United States is far away from over. The problematic of panhandling is relatively new in the United States not being old since the days of Vietnam but over the years the problematic has grown so far that he BLS don't really have a concrete analysis on how much the phenomenon has grown over the last 5 decades.

The problem in Tampa lays that the city hall vainglory that the problem has been controlled but the beggars are still there on the mayor intersections in the city such as Hillsborough and Dale Mabry, around all Busch Boulevard or across 60th, on 10/30/2012 marked the year anniversary ban on Tampa's panhandlers but in a parallel  case that happened in Colombia over the course of the years you can't put the panhandlers out of the streets permanent unless the congress create a solution for the deficit in the job market.

According to the Tampa Tribune, Tampa's Mayor Bob Buckhorn said "Our medians had turned into the equivalent of Gilligans Island."  but Lesa Weikel a spokeswoman for the Homeless Coalition of Hillborough County expressed  that the ban was only to put the homeless away from the public sight and out of mind by removing them from the streets. A 2011 survey in Hillsborough County counted nearly 18.000 people who fit the expanded definition of homeless, meaning many were crashing at friend's or relatives homes, even cheap hotels but the American definition or icon of being homeless juxtapose what is being homeless in a third world country where being homeless is having no help at all from the government and trying to live the day by day as you can.

The evolution of being homeless has changed dramatically over the last 5 decades, social advocates say, with high unemployment and a steady pace of foreclosures have put people on the streets who shouldn't been there; yet the panorama of the United States regard being homeless in other part of the continent is vastly different as citizens aren't use to see beggars around middle class towns or in the suburbs; in Colombia was extremely common to see beggars and children begging for food and money on almost every corner, generations grew with the idea of watching people in the streets to the point individuals had become distant regarding other individual realities.

One solution in Tampa to aid the homeless came in the hands of the late publisher and activist Bill Sharpe whose work is well known through the city, as he founded the EPOCH newspaper as a resource to help the people in need on the only day panhandling is not prohibited which is Sunday but finding a real solution to a problematic that has generated a lot of social issues in other parts of the world is far away from being over.

The Most Prolific Drug-lords of all Time from Colombia

Pablo Escobar
Tampa, Fl -- It's a shame that certain segments of the population tend to glorify the gangster and mafioso lifestyles, while in several countries and societies people just punish these kind of people it makes me wonder why in Colombia (my birth country) why there is always some kind of fascination and glorification with the mafiosos, up to to the point the average has become a soap opera named El Capo which is also being advertised internationally where there is a demography of Hispanic population around the United States and Europe.

Recently I stumble on a Colombian magazine named Semana which they made a list of the top 5 richest drug lords.

1) Pablo Escobar: Probably the most famous drug lord in the modern history of Colombia as well one of the most notable names that still echoes around the world almost 23 years after his death because of the legacy he left behind after he founded the biggest empire based on cocaine and to his macho attitude where he declared war to the State of Colombia by saying if he wasn't extradite he was going to pay the external debt of the country, albeit it didn't happened. His fortune around 1993 according to Forbes was 3.000 Million dollars and with inflation his wealth would be today around 30.000 million dollars positioning him in the 7th place of the richest men in the world.

2) The Ochoa's:  Probably less known by now, but during the Medellin Cartel Jorge Luis, Juan David and Fabio Ochoa where the responsible ones of the logistics of shipping the cocaine to the United States and Europe. The business was in a boom that Fabio during the 1980's gained around 2.000 million dollars; Jorge and David earned around 600 million dollars each but eventually they lost their fortunes when they surrender to the authorities in 1991 and 10 years later Fabio got captured and extradite to the United States where he is serving a 30 years at a maximum penitentiary in Miami-Dade. Their fortunes combined today would be around 32.000 million dollars.

Gonzalo Gacha
3) Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha: The lieutenant of the Medellin Cartel, also a jewelry thief specialized in the emerald trafficking at Boyaca, Colombia. Under the tutelage of two drug lords Gilberto Molina on the gem traffic and Veronica Rivera de Vargas on the cocaine business made his first millions. He died on the late 1980's but on those days Forbes Magazine calculated his fortune around 500 million dollars and according to Semana his state if he was alive today would be around 5.000 million dollars.

4) The Rodriguez Orejuela Siblings: Even if their detention happened almost 20 years ago their names are still fresh on the imagery of Colombians because of their money laundry activities and their abilities to hide their illicit business under facades that became popular brands around Colombia such as drugstores and soccer.

Their estimate on the cocaine business on 1995 was around 300 million dollars by today would be 3.000 millions and all due after Pablo Escobar's death they dominated the control of the Medellin Cartel as well the 90% shipping of the drug to Europe which generated revenues around 1.000.000 pesos mixed with the 70% stake of the business they had in the United States.

Rodriguez Orejuela's
 5) Carlos Lehder: One of the most fear individuals on the 1980's. The creator of one of the most used narcotrafic routes on the 80's on the Norman Keys at the Bahama's. He is currently serving a 55 year sentence in the United States and if he would be in the business the estimate of his empire would be around 2.700 million dollars.

The Issue-less Senate Race of Florida

Tampa, Fl -- It has not been a big year on a regional level in Florida regarding the U.S. Senate seat as it was when Marco Rubio rose to the fame on 2010 by defeating Kendrick Meek over a 49% victory. This year the battle between (R) Connie Mack IV and incumbent (D) Bill Nelson campaigns where expected to show a more intricate debate over Florida socio-economical issues as Florida being a key state and one of the majors battle states in politics but the race has only fallen for the two candidates in a rhetoric of attack adds that are even on Youtube and every trendy social media beside billboards around every major city sponsored by private founders, even on Facebook both campaigns seem to be shadowed by mockeries such Floridians against Bill Nelson which at the end don't say anything to juxtapose Nelson's politics on a realistic level beyond the mockery.

The problem with the average American voter is that beyond investigating the different realities and perpetuating the cliche that what happens beyond my yard I don't care digest everything what is shown in television or the Internet without assimilating the content on the different forms regarding what's happening in a stratus of economy and politics, always dividing their opinions in a binary (partisan) ways. The problem with the current campaigns of the Democrats and the Republicans are their rethorics, they are appealing to people's emotion more than ever without even considering what is really happening there in order to win. Mack and his backers of the Republican Party had focused their efforts so much in mock Bill Nelson and also Mack had appealed by a priori fallacy that if he wins, Romney wins but the issue is not appealing on the ad-faux logical fallacy if Romney, it's not a triumph of two men - Barack or Romney - or - Mack or Nelson - this as every other political decision has to lay on the people on not in an oligarchic system.

Yet Mack keeps perpetuating the imagery that America is attacked by external forces when the real enemies of the Democracy are in the divisions of both parties that started as one, because at the end they are talking to much about nothing.

#SignsYoSonIsGay and #HowToTurnDownAUglyPerson

Adam Sandler
Tampa, Fl -- On a side note, as for 10/18/2012 a topic in Twiter that is trending is #SignsYoSonIsGay and another one is how to turn down an ugly person, it made realize how the discussion topics on the microblogging site are heading downhill and how many Americans are focusing on offending people instead of doing anything constructive, it's a shame also how there are many individuals such as the fake Adam Sandler account that are using the image of a celebrity to offend and make crude jokes toward people in general. Shame on those people who have noting else to do instead of bullying.

Uncle Bobby's Wedding - Controversy over Nature over Media Exposition and Parental Problematic about Child Sexuality

Tampa, Fl -- As it was stated on KMOV-4 (Mo-Station), there was a controversy and an exposition how the public system it is weak regarding the demands of one single father to pull out of the shelves a book named Uncle Bobby's Wedding which tell the story about a guinea pig marrying his partner. The public library system in the United States as well the public system in general should cease the demands of narrow minded bigots as this country was founded on laic principles and not emulating the utopic concept of a Christian nation.

Uncle Bobby's Wedding is a book written by author Sarah S. Brannen and as many books who deal with children with families that don't fit in the heteronormative such as Jenny lives with Eric and Martin, Heather has Two Mommies, Daddy's Roommate, King and King and others had attracted controversy over the last two decades as challenged books as they don't fit in public libraries but 1% of the people shouldn't discriminate against the other 99% because reality is far more complex than a children's book.

The challenged book has been in the public libraries since 2008 and in the suburbs of Brentwood it seems the controversy sparked recently because one father didn't liked the book and is in legal process of removing the book from the shelves making the library council board to decide if the book will be removed permanently on November the 12th. The problem it's that communities are getting enclosed on an ideological level and rejecting the different realities that goes beyond their cul-de-sac's or in other words if you don't fit with what the common majority where you live then you can not fit because you are different.

Probably we as a nation we have become political correct and everything that offends us on a personal level has to be vanquished; but also parents are fearful on not what their children will become but on what they will be able to defy the norms they have settled as well to live their lives on their own terms, some parents fear but on a certain level they embrace discrimination and they don't believe anything else that is real if it don't fit with the imagery that they grew, a book or television show is not going to turn a child into a lesbian or a gay man; a song is not going a child to embrace another gender, a paint is not going to pervert the mind of a child, you are who you are but it is the society the one who will try to meddle inside your life and tell the feelings you have are wrong.

Parents should know that support is the best key in a child development and not negating any of the child's curiosity regards the world because under the negative influences the child could develop dependencies on narcotics or anything worse. I hope Uncle Bobby's book don't get banned from the library because it will a shame as the system it's demonstrating to not protect the people's intellectual material in order to avoid some liability lawsuits. There is also one fantastic book The Complete Lesbian & Gay Parenting Guide By Lev, Arlene Istar (Google Affiliate Ad) which gives a really good detail about parenting in a same sex household.

Obama and The Bullshit of Gas Prices

Billboard above Hillsborough Avenue across Hard Rock
Hotel - Tampa Bay, Fl.
Tampa, Fl -- It's time to talk clear about gas prices as they are since 2008 and up today, the first thing you need to remember in 2008 gas prices where more than 4.00 p/g (I will never forget that because I move to the States on 2008 and I lived in Tampa and Miami.), the second thing you need to know it is to not buy all the bull-crap exposed by the SuperPacs as they will try to play with the true and all the information from the last 20 years it is encoded in the Consumers Report website and the website shows a total opposite from Obama's first day in office away from the lie that it is exposed in this billboard that I took on a photography early on the morning of 10/12/12 on Hillsborough Avenue across the street of the Hard Rock Hotel in Tampa; but, the third and last piece of information you need to know it is that probably much of the people who had drive around these sponsored billboards from Tea Party financed groups probably by now had swallowed the information as an ultimate truth because much of these people show the classical stereotype many Americans will hate to fit in as stereotype that will classify them as a group of slobs who don't read, who don't inform themselves, who only believe in what they see and only accept one truth as the ultimate truth and see everything that is not white, Protestant, conservator and what happens outside America as not their problem, as what people outside the States call the gringos.

Let's talk clear, gas prices are a focal point on this campaign but at the end even of who is elected president won't have the last word as the power of checks and balances is always present, and the House and Senate are the two power groups but if any of those groups are in tune with the elected president then that would be a major issue because there won't be a way of balance the powers and it will be the moment where the democracy will become an oligarchy which today with all the lobbyist we are one step ahead of dangling in some Communist elements as the real power is in the hands of a few corporations and not the people. The cost of gas in June 2008 was US$4.10 per gallon and the maximum average pear on the gas recession of 2008 was on US$4.11. By August the prices to US$3.47 and subsequently on an average of US$2.07. 

The price of the gas fluctuated and there comes the half truth of the billboard while it went on an average of $1.84 per gallon now here comes the tricky part where everything went on fluke and showed the dependency of Americans into fuel and not alternatives that wouldn't create a negative impact on the ecosystem. The first case comes with the Keystone XL pipeline which showed the vulnerability and negative impact of the fuels industry on the economy. The Keystone XL pipeline had a tram point that was especulated to pass by the Ogalla Aquifer in Nebraska which supplies the Midwest for drinking water and water for farming, the aquifer is a shallow body of water and vulnerable to any external abuse but the Republican Governor of Nebraska Dave Heineman worked to change the route of the pipeline. As of 2012 there are still major concern regarding the developing of the pipeline and even in a Red State as Texas there had been last minute from part environmentalist to stop the construction, albeit the regional government gave green light to project.

The pipeline so far had an estimated by the U.S. State Department that would create around 5,000 jobs; with an estimate of 1,400 temporal construction jobs made by a study of the Cornell University Global Labor Institute.  The second inconvenience happened with the BP oil spill which still fresh in the memory of people.

Yet the Obama administration is not innocent regarding oil exploration as what happened in 2010 following some old policies by the Bush administration the drilling had gone to some parts of Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico and the Mid-Atlantic and the policies will run up to the middle of 2013 and in a funny note the Super Pac who promoted the billboard that we showed at the beginning of the entry is playing with the hatred of some segments of the American population towards the Middle East and Islamophobia to incite emotions in potential voters that Mitt is the solution while the solution to lower the prices it is on the people inciting in a referendum that the Congress and the House will finally examine the privileges they are giving to companies such as BP, Exxon, Texaco and others as manipulating a segment of the economy that shouldn't go high for sur-factors but rather keep and stable price even in the worst crisis to keep the economy afloat. So I hope the middle American don't show the ignorance and get informed before believing anything because right now we the people are selling the country to a few individuals and corporations who are using it for their own benefits.

The Pop Culture Approach of Religion and Mass Media

Janet Jackson
Tampa- Fl, Lately this week I've been wondering about the public scrutiny regarding a public figure's life and specialty their faiths. Why the pop culture and people are so obsessed.? Makes me wonder if any ideological currents celebrities follow can be commercialized so the group can find more followers,? or to change the public perception of the faith image.? My question goes to Janet Jackson and Tom Cruise who both have been on the spotlight recently as tabloids are speculating their involvement with religion has been the responsible for the changes in the lives.

It is true that when you follow a series of dogma, there will be a change in your lives, that's a fact, but also it can go on two extremes where you will live to find salvation or you will live your life implementing certain aspects to try to become a better person without loosing your principles, but when you are in the spotlight and you have to deal with the imagery of a class of people who follow your career and yet they are ignorant regarding many levels of anything that is not white, Protestant, Republican  from Missouri. The latest thing I read was from the National Enquirer where they claim that Janet Jackson is living a double life by converting to Islam to marry her fiancee Wissam al Mana - which as many tabloid stories they try to sensationalize a fairy tale in order to catch the attention of the readers but at the same time they expose details which luminaries are trying to keep private, but yet Janet Jackson fits also into the imagery of being in the closet in therms of hiding her beliefs if the story is true, as much many LGTB people hide their orientation in order to avoid bullying from the masses and to avoid any career backlash.

Tom Cruise
But what to do when there you as a celebrity find yourself in that side of the spectrum,? that was mentioned on the last paragraph. Where you behavior is not only erratic but also you had associated with a dubious religious that according to several media it's classified as a cult but yet your career only seems to suffered after three failed marriages and the rumors that you are living a double life in order to satisfy the needs of your peer group as well to shut up the media. That's the case of Tom Cruise, where his career took a wrong turn after jumping the couch  a few years ago on the Oprah Winfrey Show and speaking publicly about his faith but also in a surreal way about his relationship with actress Katie Holmes.

So far 2012 has been a brutal year for Tom Cruise as he got divorced for a third time, yet religion seems a factor in playing a good role on the public image as Holmes so far is being 3,000 miles away along with their six year old girl Suri placing Tom Cruise under the microscope as a man who is control freak and yet living in a seclusive life surrounded only by people with his similar beliefs sparking allegations that Scientology has to be the pivotal stone of his relationships as well some other minor gossips regarding his sexuality.

According to People Oct 8, 2012 edition, screenwriter and friend of the actor Christopher McQuarrie said that Cruise busy schedule don't let him see his girl but yet the matter of religion plays a central role on the imagery of the divorce as there was no given reason for Katie Holmes to snap and ask for the divorce beyond the involvement of the actor in the Scientology affairs. According to investigative journalist Maureen Orth in a Vanity Fair article published on the September 2012 Edition mention that the religion leader David Miscavige to auditioned several woman as potential girlfriends for the actor and one of them was Nazanin Boniadi who by now is a former member of the church but on the other side of the story, Cruise attorney Bert Fields deemed the story as "a rehasj of tired old lies previously run in the supermarket tabloids." as well as the church giving a similar stance but yet why a prestigious journalist as Maureen Orth would lie.? There is no reason for a journalist to sell his or her ideals that easy specially one as her, yet no one is perfect so as any religion in the world.

Yet people seem to see religion as a connection point between the public figures, an element of emotional connection where it can sell an individual to the masses or even so help a political candidate to win any election if he appeals to the majority of the people's emotions but yet it can be an element of division where not many individuals will try to seek understanding but over-imposition of their values to the masses.

Legal Rape, the Legal Corruption of the GOP in their Own Hands the Splinter Tea Party

Bill Nelson
Tampa, Fl -- There is a fine print between free expression and harassing individuals in order to persuade the population to vote for your movement. There is no doubt a corruption of the United States Republican Party by their own hands and by their proxy association with the extremist splinter group known as the Tea Party, while on a point there was the eternal dual debacle between liberals and conservators now it has become a fight between the shadow of what was the GOP into what it has become just a stream of political extremists who had associated with shady figures as the actual nominee (Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan) for the presidency of the United States his subordinate choice of companion, Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, Todd Akin, Chris Christie, the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and just to name a few.

The actual party don't represent anything from what the party was even 30 years ago, the party itself has mutated into a populist wave much as a high class version of Equator, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Argentina had become just a bunch of populist countries that promote demagogy and nothing else and the United States it's following that path and will follow that path as the moment Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will reach the White House, while it won't be the beginning of the end, just a jump into a dark ditch which will take years it will have an effect in which the economy will sink further beyond the Bush taxes because the middle class, the class that built this country will suffer and the international politics will do to as none of the G8 won't enjoy to associate with so called "fiscal conservators" that only will benefit a 1% of the population. 

If you want to know about the G8, the book G8 Climate Change Roundtable (Google Affiliate Ad) offer a glimpse into the politics of the most powerful economies as well the influences they have on the environment. With the recent pseudo scientific comments by Todd Akin, Don H. Dwyer, Santorum and just again to name a few have stirred a controversy on where people had saw the intelligence of the individuals who are in power and yet people keep supporting them which could a be a fallacy in which people don't really have a formed opinion on what is the best for the nation and for themselves.

On a Florida level, Senator Bill Nelson had faced in the electoral (as well many other delegates) on the hands of different super PACs, in the case of Nelson it comes from the machinations of Karl Rove investment on the American Crossroads by buying US$2.4 mill in television advertisement to blast Nelson and diverge attention on a Florida ground from potential unwanted attention by the stupid and out of place comments of Todd Akin about "legitimate rape" which makes us think if there is "legitimate rape" no doubt there is "legitimate bullying" and that's what the Grand Ole Party is doing more than ever.

Operation Keep it Clean in Tampa Bay: No Fair Jobs for Hoes

2001 Odyssey Nude
Tampa, Fl -- The Republican National Convention is almost a reality in Tampa Bay and what it seems a fair move from the police to avoid any inconveniences that would put the Republican Party on a scandal map because of the shameful but well re-known sex tourism reputation that is in the city, the Tampa Police Department has being raiding strip clubs in undercover operatives to also break down any prostitution rings around the city to prevent any negative reactions and press to the city in the dawn of the convention.

Police arrested 16 women , between the ages of 18 and 61 for offering companion services to undercover agents. Undercover agents went to 12 strips clubs in Tampa in search of human trafficking and prostitution rings that involved minors. The police department has information regarding prostitutes coming outside the state in order to work during the convention, which on a similar note the information don't come necessarily from informants as the strip clubs are promoting outside their premises on billboards that adult stars are coming to town on the convention week to explicit salute the politicians.

Tampa Police Department will continue to monitor adult establishments before and after the convention. Assistant chief of Tampa Police Department John Newman said "the operation will serve a dual purpose; one to enforce those folks that aren't following the rules; two is to set the tone out there that we have a standard, we have laws in place that address these types of crimes, and we are going to enforce them." The questions are for the Police Department, why not to enforce these laws regarding prostitution all year long.? Instead of enforcing them when there is a public even and making a fuss in the newspapers that the police is there taking notice on what is happening instead of following reckless drivers.?

The attention will be there as soon a scandal explodes, because the media will be following the key figures everywhere and the political players have to be aware of that but as many people realize that these conservators who preach perfection are the ones that are going to commit the first sin and the media will be there to expose them.

Russian Pussies on Riot

Pussy Riot
First, the situation with Pussy Riot shows how much governments censor any kind of protest, and this scenario won't be strange if any form of fundamentalist government it is implemented in the United States. So far three members of the Russian punk avant-garde  were sentenced to two years in prison for showing opposition to Vladimir Puttin, triggering opposition protests around the world because of the act of the Kremlin showing that hasn't evolved since the days of the iron curtain blocking everything that goes against the party.

Where is the free expression.? At least in Russia is nowhere to be seen since Tolokonnikova, Alekhina and Samutsevich have been detained since February due their protest style flash mob near the altar of Christ the Savior Cathedral which their protest wasn't driven by hate or disrespect but rather the nonconformism toward how the government controls every single aspect of life and any church shouldn't be involved in politics because a church only represents a tiny group and not an entire population.

They didn't violated anything yet when religious aspects take control over every person life, we can protest is anyone free right, even toward any religious institution and is not going to be hooliganism, even in the United States there has been a repression from certain segments of religious institutions in Tennessee bullying general population by implementing religious laws, critiquing Muslims and their beliefs and also violating the first amendment over and over by quoting they can hide behind their main book of creed that is OK to implant their discrimination because it's their religious right, much as it happened with Pussy Riot where their imprisoned had an argument on the authorities that they were disrespectful against the public morals and they weren't.

The protest song they sang said that the Virgin Mary, throw Puttin Out charged with heavy lyrics who aimed also to the support of the Orthodox Church has given to the Russian Parliamentary. The judge who held the case a woman named  Maryna Syrova said that they deliberately sought a public scandal, and they wanted to insult not only the church workers but society as a whole. They deeply insulted Orthodox believers. Still, the believers are the common majority encompassing 65% of the population in the territory and if you feel discomfort you can still protest because we are an heterogeneous society composed of many creeds and people, not an absolute, totalitarian truth as 1984. During the trial, the band members that two of them are mothers, apologized saying that they were trying to make a political point.

An American Psycho: Paul Ryan

Paul & Barack
Not all the psychos are similar to Alfred Hitchcock or Bret Easton Ellis, or as the archetypal I am going to kill you with a gun guy; the people that have the power and unlimited amount of resources are probably thrice dangerous than any maniac with guns. The way Paul Ryan can be seen is similar as the main character in the novel American Psycho Patrick Bateman. Both individuals are antithesis of antiheroes, two men who enjoy the power they have to gain personal benefit even if it inflicts pain on other people.

The problem of Mitt Romney keeps focusing on his terrible decisions which shows the future America is going to take if he takes possession along with Paul Ryan of the White House which will give an indefinite amount of power to these two men as the main branches of power are mainly Republican, and they focus on their politics to outsource the jobs and sink the country in a deficit that it will be difficult to the surface out again; but the biggest problem are the ignorant segments of the middle class which believe the demagogy of Mitt Romney and see Obama as the source of the problem we are facing today while the source can be traced to the George W. Busch era and even beyond that point where Ronald Reagan focused on keeping the rich rich.

The problem are the ignorant's who thinks they know everything but at the end are the victims supporting their bullies to reach the powers because they are focused to believe in the lies that they can not see what problems lay beyond their porches. Some people described as Paul Ryan as a fiscal conservator but in reality he is just a shadow of Mitt Romney, someone who only can see money to put in their pockets or to backup conglomerates. He voted for the Medicare Part D that in essence costed more than the Obama health reform, and voters are even ignoring the Part D because an average American really don't read anything regarding health or actual events because the blind trust they have on the people of power. Maybe that's the problem that this psycho could get elected along with Romney because the middle class enjoy having other people to make decisions for them.

A man has no rights to make decisions on a woman's body, yet as Patrick Bateman he enjoys dominating every single decision on a woman's body as the original psycho did with Christie before he killed her and that's Ryan, just another psycho who thinks women has no right over their bodies as he stated on his 1998 campaign to prosecute women who undergo abortions. So, probably it's better to analyze the scenarios where is OK to bring a child to world where he is going to suffer and eventually be abandoned by the Republican party instead of planning their maternal futures, or what in the case of a rape.? A woman has her right to decide if she wants keep the child, abort it or place it for adoption. Is unfair on many levels that a man as Ryan wants to control females through his political reign along with Romney, we are in the 21st Century yet according to the Republican Party, women are just mere property items.

Log Cabin Republicans who vote for Romney and thus Ryan have to think twice because there is no sacrifice good enough only a stupidity to vote for these two buffoons as they plan to create a constitutional ban on marriage equality as well to put back every single achievement of the community back before Stonewall where it is OK to discriminate against LGTBQ individuals.

Maybe the current political trade can be focused on the continent trends where the Tea Party can be associated with Chavistas and Sandinistas movements that are focused on populism, where charismatic yet wealthy leaders convince the voters to vote for them in order to satisfy their economic interest. The problem again can be traced in the voters not the independent but the ones who can't make a good decisions because at the end maybe we the people we will listen to a monologue from Romney and Ryan regarding that they didn't care what they did but they are proud anyway.

Lil' Mouse - The Innocence of a Child, or a P.R. Stint?

Lil' Mouse
There is a fine line between art, creativity, free speech and keep it real; but when you see a so called 13 year old kid rapping in a way he is glorying the culture streets of Chicago as well talking about sexual intercourse then you realize if this's a publicity stunt or the parents of a kid who don't have any kind of moral or paternal skills. That's the life of Chicago based rapper Lil' Mouse.

Unfortunately there hasn't been a public outcry on the why's and whats of Lil' Mouse behavior because if a 13 years old say a bunch of vulgarities , promoting a shallow lifestyle and woman abuse there should be the intervention of social services. His recent video Get Smoked video has reached around 300.000 views so far on Youtube but it has a margin of almost 3.000 people who dislike the video and around 3.000 negatives comments overall made you wonder if this video got the great amount of views by buying them.

It's not an uncommon phenomenon to buy views, albeit it's illegal it can reach the Youtubers on the top 10 list of the day and get extra attention they want, that's why it's difficult to believe the views of this video aren't staged based on the juxtaposition of the statistics and comments. 

There are several points to compare which right now the critique received by Snoop Dog and Kanye are ridicule compared to what Lil' Mouse promoters are doing in placing a kid in the middle of the spotlight in such a negative way. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Lil' Mouse lives in Roseland, Chicago; a district that is plagued by violence and gang activity, which made you wonder if the intentions behind the video are to keep it real.? Because at the end the kids are going to get exposed to the real world no matter what and maybe Lil' Mouse it's reflecting that.? Difficult to say yes, it's difficult for a kid to become involved in violence  that is exposed on the imagery of this video, albeit not far-fetched as people on the gangs are involved in younger age, but when you see the glamour of this video you can realize the p.r. stint behind Lil' Mouse but yet it's a negative impact he is creating to the African and Hispanic youths.

- I'm rolling, all my niggas rolling. 30 clip and them hollow tips have his ass sitting in Roseland Floating of a pill, pussy bad'll kill My niggas in the field; you might get killed.. - When you hear and listen all these kinds of nonsense and filthy words coming out from a child mouth then you realize it is the fault of the parents and no one else, but when you see the sociological factors even if the parents are trying to sell the reality of their environment it becomes worse because of their lack of morals. 

Rapper, Che "Rhymefest" Smith, who also engages in politics as he is well known for trying to get a seat in the municipal assembly on the 20th Ward, expressed that the lyrics of Lil' Mouse about sex and violence are representing a "new culture of rap music from Chicago that is glorifying violence and drugs." yet is not new because that itself it's gangsta rap and the words coming from a child don't make the situation new they made it worse to the point humiliating the African-American culture who are trying to distance themselves from this shameful movement.

Obama Support Gay Marriage and Abortion

Republican Billboard at 6202 North Dale Mabry Highway Tampa, FL 33614
This billboard is only 1.5 miles away from my house, coming from work it got my attention because I thought I probably misread it,but what the caption says also the small prints are - OBAMA SUPPORTS GAY MARRIAGE & ABORTION (DO YOU) - VOTE REPUBLICAN - PAID BY THE REPUBLICAN UNION PAC, NOT AUTHORIZED BY ANY CANDIDATE OR CANDIDATE'S COMMITTEE

I got amazed and probably I passed three four times before having the chance of taking a photo of the billboard which is located 6202 North Dale Mabry Highway Tampa, FL 33614, if this is free expression then I can say that free expression is a bunch of non nonsensical words that people associate with being bullies, I can say I am not voting for the Republican Party in my life because people who ridicule women rights and civil rights they don't deserve the respect of any person on the face of the Earth because we as a collective we'd advanced a lot since the segregation days and since the Stonewall riots.

Duval County - Fl; A Decisive County For Obama to Win in Florida

Jacksonville - Fl
Tampa, Fl -- Is quite difficult to think about Duval County about one of the places that there is an enthusiasm for the Democratic party because historically this place has been Republican oriented albeit not necessarily strict as Hillsborough but yet Duval is extremely unpredictable with the voters trends because even if the orientation goes on the GOP doesn't mean they Grand Old Party will have a secure victory on Florida is they win voters on County Area.

There is a lot of contradiction in the area, if you drive to any part of the county you will find every stereotype imaginable, much as a starburst, from redneck Democrats, to amazing views and bridges as Chicago, inner city minnorities who will complain about crime, hipster Republicans drinking coffee at Starbucks and whatever you can imagine - yet it is one of the most misunderstood and under studied counties in Florida regarding political trends as well city management -. If we look the last two Republican mayors raised taxes and fees significantly, while the new Democratic mayor Alvin Brown has Tea Party activist hailing his fiscal conservationism, historically this county that Republican candidates win by 15% points can be nailed by a Democratic candidate much as the south part of the State.

On 2004, George W. defeated Kerry in Duval by a 62.000 votes margin, while previous candidate John McCain who is a former resident of Jacksonville barely went through the 10.000 votes, but do Obama has what it needs to conquer a predominantly red county?. Who knows?. From one side when he won on 2008 there was an enthusiasm because he was the first African American who conquered the hearts of people and motivated them to go out and vote, yet the other side of the problem rallies on the conformism of the people to not think beyond their bubble and complain for minimal details not even thinking that all the problems we have now are from the previous administration which was a Republican cabinet that lasted for almost a decade.

The problem is not in Duval, but rather how close he can keep it because if the campaign can't keep closer than seven or eight percentage points from the Republican campaign it will become hard to make up for those votes around the State. One of the elemental keys are the votes of the African-Americans because it compose a body of 530.000 voters who develop a decisive point in the electoral race as well a key in the victory of Obama.

The Political Chicken

It's difficult to think of a political symbol that can be summarized in a place, there are plenty but it's more difficult to believe yet because of the efforts by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee probably the fast food restaurant Chick-Fil-A could be considered one of those items where the exercise of politics was executed on the second century of the second millennium. It's impossible yet possible to believe that the struggle for civil rights went from a segregated drinking fountains, to a bus, to a million men march, to the internet and now to a fast food restaurant; probably all of these situations can be attributed to the ever evolving media who positions people and struggles of power in to new heights and places.

After all the scandal regarding Dan Cathy stance on marriage there were three different outcomes to the Chick-Fil-A situation, all three were different but yet interlinked by a chicken sandwich.. The first outcome was that profits for the company after the appreciation day organized by the former governor which declared an unofficial holiday as August the 1st as Chick-Fil-A appreciation day yet as Jim Wilson's from the Tucson Citizen said -
  Time will declare Chick-fil-A to be on the losing side of the culture war.  After all the general trend is that Americans are becoming more sexually open and more embracing of personal freedom than ever. Religious conservatives hate this.  The traditionalist old guard is not getting any younger, and won’t be around forever and ironically, eating at Chick-fil-A won’t help with them live longer.
Which is true on a certain degree because if you want to be in the political fight and be healthy the last thing you want to do is eat in a fast food restaurant and society is becoming more open regarding what people call traditional values because much of these traditional values are stuck in a line of thinking and time where nuclear families were the predominant aspect after the post war era and I Love Lucy was the number one show on television and as far today neither of those aspects are alive as families had evolved beyond the nuclear theology and Lucile Ball as well Desi Arnaz are dead.

It's a culture war and is a topic that can get extended to many levels but society indeed is evolving and right wingers had tried to stop and keep the status-quo but not matter who they try or lobby in the government it is not their business to dictate how society has to live specially because North America is not a Theocratic nation which is strictly Abrahamic because this is a pluralistic society.

The second outcome of the chicken wars comes regarding freedom of speech, freedom of religion, hate speech, protesting and vandalism. The Kiss-In protest didn't bring many people around opposite to the fanatics who went to the appreciation day but it also had a good coverage around social media and the news around the country spawning several micro events to protest against the company; but the actions of the protest can be seen into two different divergent points, the first one and most important goes solely on what the protest is about on why the company keeps supporting hate groups recognized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as well lobbying for private interest which was the main point that enraged civil rights activists.

The second part of the second outcome comes within the protest even if Chick-Fil-A has done their part there was no need to vandalize with a graffiti the wall of a restaurant as if you want your voice to be heard there is no need to go in the same level as some right-winger fanatical's that threat people in the same way.

The third and last outcome comes in a way no one expected and it came from the Chick-Fil-A circle, by a manager named Anthony Picolla, the manager of the New Hampshire branch and as was informed by TIME Magazine he took a different path from the president of the company and opted to sponsor a pride festival in November at Manchester, New Hampshire; being probably the only one individual from the powers of the company that is supporting a civil right cause, but the question is if this man who opted to took a different stance from the company is going to get penalties by the CEO's as he dared to defied the company policies.? Who knows but a new chapter in the culture wars has started and a young pastor named Sarah Halverson has joined the battle to show that even with our differences we are all equal.

Why People Gathered to Support a Chain food Restaurant instead of Helping the Poor?

There is a hypocrisy where you read religious freedom and doing a good deed in your life time; there is of course certain indignation regarding the event of Chick-Fil-A appreciation day where the viewers can see the hypocrisy of some people to say they are being prosecuted because of their religious beliefs but yet you will never see a large congregation of people who are in the same branch of faith to support a national chain of fast food restaurant instead of doing a good will as it is stated on their core beliefs.

It's amazing how many individuals juxtapose religion and business on the same level, but overall it's amazing to see how people just follow a fad instead of following a call of servitude, but no one can deny that Chick-Fil-A had a good revenue on August the first thanks to the event promoted by Mike Huckabee regarding how his core beliefs were insulted by a group of people who had the valency to stood up against a company that donates to hate groups when someone should get offended if they attack the foundation of their ideology but not a restaurant.

Religious freedom can't be associated with a public relation strategy to eat in a restaurant, then the Westboro Baptist Church has their own right to attack everybody who don't believe the same nucleus of beliefs because they are on their own expression and is sheltered in the constitution given permission to them to being violent; yet across the country you could see all the restaurants packed beyond their capacity because people where fighting over religious freedom, instead of knowing that teachings their religion preach which you can't bacon or chicken as is presented in the format here, maybe is ignorance and confusion to their own upbringings because is OK to twist different aspects of your beliefs in order to adjust them to your life. 

But yet, it is OK to twist and bend in order to generate profit which by many standards it can be consider a sin, even lying in order to gain money is wrong or to give support not to a charity but a corporation seems OK, so where are the good Christian values after this stint, this is not free speech or support to execute any religious ideology anyone profess, what Martin Luther King Jr did was to promote inclusion, defend freedom of speech and rights, yet what Mike Huckabee and the thousands of people who gathered around Chick-Fil-A was a public demonstration of ignorance because they spent the money on a shallow way instead of actually doing something noble for the less fortunate.

Paya and Pollan - The Heroes in the Silence of Cuba

Paya and the Pope
(Tampa, Fl) -- Many people in America always complain that they don't have a voice, some people fight Anonymously, heroes without a face, heroes with a million voice, yet the heroes are only human and yet some people tend to complain that they don't have a voice, these heroes are the voices of many because when there is oppression the heroes will rise. Now imagine living in a society where you don't have a voice and if you dare to speak the government will try to silence you because you are daring to speak against the regime.

There is nothing pretty to live in Cuba and for the dissidents they have no choice but to keep fighting; between nine months two of the top figures in Cuba, Oswaldo Paya and Laura Pollan shook the political scenario because their abrupt deaths in which Pollan died from a sudden respiratory illness in a Cuban hospital and Paya died after a what is suspected to be a sabotage in his car mechanism but not evidence has been shown from part of their families regarding if the regime played dirty on the leaders of the opposition.

Even if the struggle for freedom of speech and democracy is going in new directions with the access of the internet, blogging, poetry in the streets or whatever they can find to express themselves, the legacy of Paya and Pollan is steady as they traveled in the imagery of the collective. Paya was the founder of the Christian Liberation Movement or Movimiento de Liberacion Cristiana in which they called for peaceful civil disobedience against the Communist Party of Cuba as well being one of the few dissididents who stood opposition on the Black Spring. Pollan was an amazing lady, founding the Ladies in White or Las Damas de Blanco, a group which protested for the liberation of the political prisioners and as Paya's group they also preached pacifism but the Cuban regime couldn't express any tolerance regarding any one oppose them because they are that a totalitarian regime and nothing more.

Yet, people think democracy is just a mirage, people just complain for minimal things, bitch for unnecesary things and yet they never go out and fight as many black radicals from the sixties call, the man; people who complain without knowing why they are complain show an ignorance but the people who go and fight for a change deserve respect because they are outside trying to make everything better even for the ones who have no clue what is happening outside.

In the Pursuit of Happiness, It's Difficult but It's Gets Better

(Tampa - Fl) -- There is something I always believed it's unfair that people have to say who they love and a narrow segment of society judging. I firmly believe that everyone has the right to love the person they treasure without any taboo. The problem is when people try to impose and any imposition of character is wrong, let them live and live, as some people say every now and then.

I recently spoke with my parents about my own sexual orientation, I am bisexual and I can say that my better half is a man, the chat became a fight in less than 24 ours and I am experience twice the life of someone who decided to become an honest person with his own self in order to achieve happiness. We can't lie to our personas, it's impossible and denying who we are can cause stress to our own mental health as well physical bodies. I really think is wrong that a simple matter as love people judge it, but then again that people will judge and ignorant individuals who have no other weapons will use religion as the maximum truth even to explain pseudo-scientific facts even if life is more complex than one reality as it is composed of million different realities under one world.

The only unnatural thing it's celibacy, there is no such thing in the world and yet humans are the only ones to say it is a natural behavior. It gets better but the path is painful much of the time for much of the people who decide to be happy even if that means to defy the status-quo.You are never alone, there will be always a friend who will support you even if they are n the distance, and there are several hotline such as the GLTB National Help Center who will assist people in despair, I can say thanks to a friend I discovered how these hotline's can really help you.

Sometimes it's difficult, it's never easy to come in fact with the terms, I have to say it's been an emotional roller coaster with so many different factors to analyze and think, one thing I was debating in my head if I should do it was the economical factor, many young people who come at peace with their life think that as they rely on their parents and probably that's the biggest fear, being alone and without a penny and that is a situation that happens to many people who are cut from their families because their sexual orientation varies with their values.

Values is a strong word, a really treacherous word that usually separate individuals, duality, good or wrong. There is no duality in the universe even for shades between black and white there is always grey. What is good or wrong.? The ability to discern what can destroy you or to make you happy, the tears.? Who knows, for is just the ability to discern what is the best from the wrong according to your living experiences, there are times where we can't pretend, where it's you or them, a moment to take a decision but you will have to pay for the consequences the good one and the bad ones.

It takes a lot of courage, I am relearning certain things such as about life, friendship and love and what you can do to survive. It's not easy, but there is always hope and strengths to continue off, because if you keep fighting it will get better.

Immigration - Latinos, The Hidden Majority in Red States. - Latinos x Obama
(Tampa, Fl) -- There is a moment when a minority becomes one of the majority power groups in a country and it  can make the status-quo to tremble down. Immigration has played an important part in the economical and social development of the country to the point that deny the possibility to someone who is running away from the place he or she was born because any external causes it's unconstitutional as many people who are immigrants are the ones who go out and fight for their new homes. Latinos after the big exodus of the 60's and the 70's after the rise of the populist guerrillas in the different south and central american countries fled on their majority to North America and Canada in search of a new hope, the hope of freedom of expression.

The immigration reform can become a pivotal move into Obama getting reelected for a second term on the states that are well known for their wide different ethnic groups that are trying to find a legal way to stay in the country they call home; but, also the reform is going to give the people Obama is trying to convince to vote for him the power of the vote for upcoming elections in November and that doesn't mean they are going to vote for him but the tactic of formalizing the immigration status of thousand of people has generated a positive boost on the sectors he left behind since his second year. Hispanics were a pivotal sector in key states such as Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, North Carolina, Florida and Virginia in the 2008 elections, having a 2/3 of the Hispanic votes according to the exit polls.

According to a poll conducted on the  17 - 30, June of 2012 week by the Quinnipiac University showed that Obama's support in Florida went up sharply but there are still different sectors divided regarding about job creations as well performance with the economy. According to the poll in Florida voters say that Romney would do a better job with the economy on a 48:44 there is a schism on the decision as 49:44 that Obama would veil the economical interest of middle class.

Probably the reform on immigration can sharp the interest of the Hispanic population as it's been on the decline since the last election four years ago, according to a recent poll held by NBC News and the Wall-Street Journal which place a margin on a 57% over a 5.7% point margin of error.

While Romney's campaign hasn't done anything clear to clarify their position on immigration laws after the former Governor had a complete fiasco on his home State of Massachusetts, there's been a national debate regarding what are the policies of the former Governor if he is going to though the immigration laws for worse or he is going to lose them up if he gets elected to gain more adepts as well to boost the economy. Probably if we follow his last trends on immigration policies up to the Arizona Law, we can see a man who slowly is digging his own grave by blaming his own mistakes on Mr. Obama.

There is another point regarding Romney's speech against his contender, it is true Obama was extremely passive regarding many social issues on the last three years as well the double digit unemployment around the Latino population, but there is no doubt the strategic plan of Romney is being condemn to a failure because he is creating an oxymoron in desperation of his failed politics when he was a governor. Now he supports the idea of unifying family to not separate family units; to give green cards to military service as well green cards for those who are earning advance degrees in the United States; it is amazing how a man can contradict himself in order to win even if he has to betray his own beliefs.

Latino's can become a decisive point in the upcoming elections if they any of the candidates knows how to play their cards but right now at the moment even if the Latino population show an interest toward Obama over Romney, they still remain a low-turnout group.
