“Actually,it's on a lovely island called Vieques.I'm not sure of that spelling.
Anyway,Vieques has so many desolate and beautiful beaches.
One side of the Island has a bit of a boardwalk and nightlife,Some great restaurants.The other side (where i stayed) is quieter.You can rent a tiny jeep and buzz around to just beautiful spots.Very rustic.My rental was like hat old beer commercial two palm trees framing the ocean.Me sitting on my steps with a beer.literally feet from the surf.

“No it isn't. The one on Vieques is a different bay, Fajardo has its own and there is another on the Southern side of the main island.”
“Only 1% ers buy coffee at chains.That's right! Even though you're driving a pinto and your socks don't match,if you spending three bucks on a cup a joe,people in The Sudan would consider you bourgeois.”
“That's great.Now,Let's make "Integrity" the "new" old goal for our politicians.
Then we can worry about who's being represented,in our political system.
Politics sees one color.GREEN!!!!
But if this mixed family inspires you,so be it.
I'll be happy when integrity in Government is restored.When people are first,not business.When pacs and lobbyists are gone,when interest rates are held in check and obscene profit not the mantra.When health care is a right not a privilege.When education ( which 13 presidents i know of vowed to "fix")
But ,yeah,nice mixed family,whatever that ends up meaning.”
Let's start over,next election.Maybe find a Man or Woman,with no political clout or party affiliation,with excellent credentials,that actually cares about America.
Stop electing businessmen/women.
A strong Business community grew America.BUT!!!!!
Business,as of late,has become concerned with profit only.
Make the Middle & lower class stronger,with a "Living Wage" and reasonable healthcare.
Stop allowing credit card rates over 10%.Stop payday loans.
Stop gouging and profiteering.(do you know the ludicrous markup on EVERYTHING you buy?)
Institute a flat tax.
Humanely feed clothe & house the poor,the addicted,but with compassion leaning towards self-reliance.Make them give back instead of Give Up!
Fill the Congress and Senate with non "Career -Politicians" and business people.
Lets get Teachers,Scientists,people from the arts community.
It breeds thought provoking change.
How about making a run for political office something other than a Jerry Lewis Telethon.
Hows about that!”

“Your suggestions are fine, but the RNC and the DNC will never support a candidate that was truly chosen by the people. The RNC and the DNC choose the candidates that will draw the most money (because money wins elections) and big business donates the most money (so big business wins elections).
So first and foremost, we need campaign finance reform. We need to make sure only REGISTERED VOTERS may contribute to campaigns, not business, not foreign countries (through big business), not secret, 501c3, money-gathering groups.
Until then, big business buys the campaigns, and the campaigns support the candidates as dictated by big business.
If you want true representation...
CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM.”
