Economic Crisis Highlights Leadership Limits of Obama & Hispanic Chieftains

July 29th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Cross posted at DailyGrito. By Seneca Frankly, President Obama does not seem like he was fully prepared to be President. His hubris may have gotten the best of him. He ignited real hope and became lucky: Hillary Clinton became overconfident, GWB became a bane as a lame duck, and John McCain self-destructed. Ergo Obama became […]

There. Is. STILL. No. Line

September 12th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Exiles are different from immigrants in that exiles leave their country and enter another hoping that changes will take place in their homeland and enabling them to return. Unlike immigrants, who […]

Afghanistan & Obama

December 4th, 2009 · 31 Comments

This week President Obama announced his plans for Afghanistan, and I am of the opinion that this war or conflict should have been the one addressed years ago instead of what was allowed to happen in Iraq.

One issue that has been of recent concern on this blog is the coup and pending elections in Honduras tomorrow. It has been five months since the de facto rulers of Honduras have ousted the democratically elected Mel Zelaya with the military, illegally exiling him.
