Concursos de Bellezas, el Olímpismo y el derecho de un Pueblo a un mejor Futuro!

Puerto Rico fue el auspiciador de tres Juegos Centro Americanos (1966, 1993 y 2010) y los Juegos Panamericanos de 1979. 
En esos cuatro eventos, el Pueblo de Puerto Rico, a valores de hoy, se gastó más de mil millones de dólares! Dinero tomado prestado a través de bonos del ELA colonial y de impuestos locales. 

Los Soberanistas/
Separatistas/Chavistas 
son Anti-USA pero le
 Gustan los USA$$$

Este gasto de mil millones incluye la participación en enviar delegaciones a 23 juegos Centro-Americanos, 13 juegos Panamericanos y 20 Juegos Olímpicos!

Mil millones de dólares de fondos que se le negaron a la educación, a la salud, a la creación de empleos, a la lucha contra las drogas y el crimen y al desarrollo auto-sostenible. 

Mil millones que pudieron abonarse a la deuda de $104 billones que los gobernadores coloniales electos mal gastaron en corrupción, otorgación de contratos amigos del alma y a las piñitas de los partidos y en proyectos de costos de proporciones faraónicas a destiempo y en francachelas de jueguitos olímpicos.

Los últimos, los de Mayagüez (XXI Juegos Centro Americanos y del Caribe) costaron $400 millones de dólares en proyectos que beneficiaron a corporaciones amigas de Aníbal Acevedo Vilá y algunas de España dejaron docenas de facilidades muchas hoy abandonadas y deterioradas por el abandono y la falta de recursos para su mantenimiento.

Ayer un amigo me escribió de que el asunto de la "soberanía" deportiva era un talón de Aquiles de la estadidad. Pues difiero respetuosamente de mi amigo. Primero, el tener representación del la Comité Olímpico Internacional, en la Organización Deportiva Panamericana o en la Organizacion Deportiva CentroAmericana y del Caribe no tiene NADA que ver con política, ni status político. Todas son organizaciones privadas, incluyendo el Comité Olímpico de los Estados Unidos.

Segundo, el Gobierno colonial, que hincha sus enajenados pulmones cada vez que se celebra un evento o envía una delegación a participar, ELIMINO el programa de educación física del sistema educativo público. Por eso tenemos tantos niños y jóvenes sufriendo de obesidad.

Tercero, el asignarle millones TODOS LOS AñOS, al Comité Olímpico y el haber gastado MIL MILLONES en "jueguitos para jugar al separatismo" no le da al Pueblo trabajos, salud, educación, seguridad en su entorno, desarrollo autosostenible. En otras palabras, el gastos en el Comité Olímpico y en jueguitos no me paga la hipoteca, la electricidad más cara de todos los EEUU; el agua más cara de todos los EEUU; los alimentos de la familia ni la educacion de los niños.
Un Pueblo como el nuestro debe tener bien clara sus opciones. El Partido Nuevo Progresista debe dejar de pretender que hay que defender la "soberanía" Olímpica (que sólo existe en las mentes de los separatistas y de los tontos útiles que caen en esa madeja) y a los concursos de bellezas internacionales (que los controla Donald Trump, un empresario privado). 

Puerto Rico atraviesa por su peor momento desde que España perdió su soberanía sobre la Isla. El Puerto Rico pierde a través del éxodo masivo más de 48-mil personas al año q le cuestan más de $912 millones al año menos en la economía. Esta masiva emigración han dejado un Puerto Rico en su esqueleto económico; banca local con insolvencia; 312,000 viviendas vacía (Una Cuarta Parte del Inventario de Casas en Puerto Rico); 77,000 viviendas con 90 días de atrasos y 17,000 en proceso de ejecución. 

Con este cuadro y colapso económico los neonacionalistas y algunos sectores de la prensa Imperial pretenden seguir la jauja de millones de dólares para jueguitos y franchelas del Comité Olímpico colonial?
Evidentemente la enajenación colonial es más poderosa que el narcótico natural o farmacéutico que impulsa a los colonúpidos que prefieren la inmolación y muerte económico de todo un Pueblo por el costoso placer de escuchar la borinqueña y enarbolar la bandera revolucionaria por unos minutos para luego regresar al enredo colonial y al decaimiento social y eonómico que hoy vivimos. 

ME OPONGO A ESTE GASTO INMORAL Y QUIERO LA IGUALDAD PARATICIPANDO EN UN COMITE OLIMPICO DE USA CON RECURSOS Y LAS TECNOLOGIAS MAS AVANZADAS PARA DESARRLLAR A NUESTROS ATLETAS! 

Esto, de financiar al Comité Olímpico debe terminar o terminamos con la Isla vacía! NO HAY PATRIA SIN GENTES!

WHAT ARE THEY NOT TELLING US ABOUT EBOLA?

The One Question About Ebola That Nobody Can Seem To Answer
THE DAILY SHEEPLE
by Michael Snyder 
The American Dream
August 11th, 2014
How in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus?  That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer.  The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening.  We are just assured that Ebola “is not airborne” and that getting infected “requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person”.  If this is true, then how have more than 170 health workers caught the disease?  These workers are dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus.  So how is this happening?  I could understand a handful of “mistakes” by health workers, but this is unlike anything that we have ever seen in the history of infectious diseases.  These health workers take extraordinary precautions to keep from getting the virus.  If it is spreading so easily to them, what chance is the general population going to have?
Overall, more than 1,700 people have been officially infected and more than 900 people have officially died so far.  But an official from Samaritan’s Purse says that the real numbers are probably far, far higher
Ken Isaacs, the vice president of Program and Government Relations for Samaritan’s Purse, painted an even bleaker picture. According to the World Health Organization, West Africa has counted 1,711 diagnoses and 932 deaths, already, which could represent only a small fraction of the true number. “We believe that these numbers represent just 25 to 50 percent of what is happening,” said Isaacs.
In a six-hour meeting with the president of Liberia last week, Isaacs said workers from Samaritan’s Purse and SIM watched as the “somber” officials explained the gravity of the situation in their countries, where hundreds lie dead in the streets. “It has an atmosphere of apocalypse,” Isaacs said of the Liberia Ministry of Health’s status updates. “Bodies lying in the street…gangs threatening to burn down hospitals. I believe this disease has the potential to be a national security risk for many nations. Our response has been a failure.” Isaacs says that the epidemic is inciting panic worldwide that, in his opinion, may soon be warranted. “We have to fight it now here or we’re going to have to fight it somewhere else.”
In an official statement released on Monday, the World Health Organization even admitted that some potential Ebola patients “are being turned away”
The recent surge in the number of cases has stretched all capacities to the breaking point. Supplies of personal protective equipment and disinfectants are inadequate. The outbreak continues to outstrip diagnostic capacity, delaying the confirmation or exclusion of cases and impeding contact tracing.
Some treatment facilities are overflowing; all beds are occupied and patients are being turned away.
Like I have said before, this has the potential to become the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen. Up until this point, the outbreak has been primarily limited to Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
But now it is starting to pop up in more countries around Africa.
For example, the number of confirmed cases in Nigeria has reached ten…
Nigeria on Monday confirmed a new case of Ebola in the financial capital Lagos, bringing the total number of people in the country with the virus to 10.
Health minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said the latest confirmed case was a female nurse who came into contact with a Liberian-American man, Patrick Sawyer, who died of Ebola in a Lagos hospital on July 25.
In addition to Sawyer, another nurse who had contact with him died last week, while seven other people have been confirmed to have the virus in the city, he added.
And it looks like we may now have our first case of Ebola in Rwanda
Rwanda’s health officials have placed a man suspected of suffering from Ebola in isolation at King Faisal Hospital Kigali. A statement by the Ministry of Health released on Sunday indicates that the patient had been tested with results still expected. Samples from the suspected case have been sent for testing to an international accredited laboratory, and results will be available in 48 hours, the statement said. The suspected case is a European medical student, according to the statement. It is the first suspected Ebola case in Rwanda since the outbreak of the virus in West Africa. The government urged the public to remain calm and vigilant, as the ministry is closely monitoring the situation.
All the preventive measures needed in line with national standards are already in place, including surveillance systems and emergency management systems, it assured, adding “Health workers have been trained across the country and are vigilant.” This will enable timely detection, notification and appropriate management of any suspected cases to safeguard Rwandans, the statement concluded.
Over in Ghana, a man that just died is being tested for the Ebola virus…
Ghana may be recording its first case of Ebola if tests on the blood samples of a Burkinabe man suspected to have died of Ebola proves positive. The man who was rushed to the Bawku Presby Hospital in the Upper East Region from Burkina Faso, died on arrival. The Medical Director at the Hospital, Dr Joseph Yaw Manu, who confirmed the incident to Citi News, said they sent the blood samples for testing because the man was brought in showing symptoms of Ebola. In an interview with Citi News, Dr. Manu said the patient was bleeding from his nostrils which raised their suspicion he may have died of the Ebola disease. Dr. Manu said they are awaiting the results from the blood sample test to verify the cause of death. He gave the assurance that the hospital is prepared to battle the disease. This is the fourth suspected case of Ebola reported in Ghana; two in Kumasi, one in Accra and now the Upper East Region.
Lastly, the little nation of Benin is now reporting two potential cases of Ebola
Benin has reported two cases of the deadly Ebola virus in the west African country. Health Ministry official Aboubacar Moufiliatou said that a man suspected to have contracted the virus had died. “Fortunately, blood samples have been taken from the deceased patient to examine if his death was linked with Ebola,” Moufililatou told the state television Thursday night. He said another man has been quarantined after showing symptoms of the deadly virus after returning from the Nigerian city of Lagos. “Blood tests from the suspected case will be conducted in laboratories approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) to confirm or deny the infection,” he said. The WHO has declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa to be an “international public health emergency” as the virus reportedly continues to spread through the region in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. According to the latest WHO report, Ebola has killed 932 people in West Africa. The Ebola virus, a contagious disease for which there is no known treatment or cure, can be transmitted to humans from wild animals and also spreads through contact with the body fluids of an infected person or someone who has died of the disease. Medical doctors say common symptoms of Ebola include high fever and headaches, followed by bleeding from openings in the body. If the cases turn out to be Ebola, this would be the fifth country in Africa where the virus has spread.
We are quickly getting to the point where it will become impossible to contain this virus.
And if it spreads to the United States, we are going to be in a massive amount of trouble.  The truth is that we are not prepared for an Ebola pandemic, and such a crisis would create a massive wave of panic and fear all over this country.
Unfortunately, despite the risks, we continue to bring people back to this country before we know that it is safe to do so
Health officials in North Carolina said on Sunday they will require missionaries and others coming home after working with people infected with Ebola in Africa to be placed in quarantine. 
The quarantine is set to last for three weeks from the last exposure to someone infected in the West African Ebola outbreak, which is centred in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the officials said.
Missionaries from the North Carolina-based Christian aid groups SIM USA and Samaritan’s Purse have been working to help combat the world’s worst outbreak of the disease. Two of the relief workers, Dr Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, contracted the disease and are being cared for at Emory University hospital in Georgia.
Why couldn’t those individuals just be quarantined over there an extra three weeks in a safe area and then come home?
All it takes is one sick person.  Once the disease gets here and starts spreading, there isn’t much that we can do about it.  There is no cure for Ebola, and according to the New York Times it is going to be quite a while before one is potentially available…
The drugs that could potentially treat those already infected and the vaccines to protect healthy people from infection are all in the earliest stages of testing. And even if they do pass muster in clinical trials, they cannot be produced in large quantities quickly enough to stem the widening epidemic anytime soon.
“We do not know how to treat Ebola or vaccinate against it — and it will be a long time before we do.”
Those are very sobering words.
For now, our health officials are telling us that we have very little to be concerned about.
But they can’t even tell us why more than 170 health workers have caught the virus.
So let’s hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.

AMERICA's REAL FREE LOADERS - CORPORATE WELFARE!


August 10, 2014
Puerto Rico is right at the center of this storm. Our US Territory is their top choice for corporate money laundering. Many in Puerto Rico have been led to believe these corporate tax breaks are the only solution to our stagnant economy. 

However, these tax breaks have been around for over 60 years and we still continue with high unemployment and serious social problems which have escalated. Our island is bankrupct, we have high crime statistics, comparable to a war zone, and increased poverty. 

This TAX BENEFIT for the RICH has also contributed to the economic debacle hitting the US taxpayer and workers, by taking jobs away from the US, increasing unemployment and then obtaining tax benefits to bring the money home under the false pretense of helping the US economy

Taxpayers fund corporate tax avoidersAugust 7, 2014
THE WEEKLY CHALLENEGER

BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX, NNPA Columnist

"While these companies hit the road to avoid taxes, they have no hesitation in enjoying the benefits that come from tax protection, and regulation.
When these corporations underpay their workers, we supplement their inadequate wages with government-funded income subsidies (food, housing assistance, etc.). When these companies need securities protection, they don’t hesitate to use the Securities and Exchange Commission), also paid for with our taxes. While these corporations operate like foreign corporations for tax purposes, they expect the services of the United States government for their protection.
Meanwhile, the leaders of these companies are some of those who argue for lower estate taxes, and lower taxes for the wealthy. Give me a break! These corporations are ripping off United States taxpayers in two ways. First, they don’t pay taxes on the benefits they receive. Secondly, their advocacy to cut personal taxes is yet another attack on the tax base."

Letter: Oil industry’s tax traitors
ARGUS LEADER
By Orrie D. SwayzeWilmot
August 9, 2014

"Our president recently condemned as unpatriotic individuals and corporations that renounce U.S. citizenship to avoid paying taxes in the U.S., a practice called “inversion,” used by international oil corporations and others to seek out the lowest bidder tax state to call “my country.” I call them tax traitors.

These tax traitors are the primary competitors to our taxpaying South Dakota corn processing industry that produces human and livestock ration proteins along with its ethanol byproduct. Corn processing is the cornerstone of our job-creating South Dakota economy and No. 1-rated business climate.

It is embarrassingly poor business that we allow these tax traitors or foreign oil corporations to financially create two mythical public perceptions, myths that severely have curtailed projected growth of ethanol production nationally and South Dakota corn processing. First myth: It is illegal to fuel standard autos with E30. Secondly: E30 will ruin standard auto engines."

CORPORATE TAX INVERSION
Illinois State Senator - DANIEL BLISS

"In a previous blog post,I wrote about the recent spate of corporations exploring the "tax inversion" concept, a maneuver whereby an American corporation buys a foreign corporation and declares its headquarters to have moved to that foreign corporation's country so as to avoid paying U.S. taxes.
You aren't able to declare a residence in Monte Carlo or the Cayman Islands just because you know someone with a spare bedroom there, but corporations can. And you almost certainly aren't able to hire lobbyists to push special tax breaks that only apply to you through compliant legislatures, but corporations do that all the time. When someone else does that, without pushing governments to cut spending by a commensurate amount, there are only two possible outcomes. Either you wind up picking up the slack, or else the government runs up a debt and your children wind up picking up the slack."

RUSSIAN BOMBERS ARE CIRCLING OVER U.S.!

Shocking: Russian Bombers Are Circling The Skies Above U.S., Ready To Strike At Moment's Notice
F. Peter Brown  
WESTERN JOURNALISM
THE HAVEN

Russian strategic bombers penetrated US airspace 16 times in the last 10 days, according to US defense officials. The bombers penetrated 16 times into northwestern US air defense identification zones. Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel warned about the heightened possibility of a Russian invasion of Ukraine.
US jets scrambled in response to the Russian bombers several times.
Major Beth Smith, spokeswoman for NORAD, commented about the incursions, saying, ” Over the past week, NORAD has visually identified Russian aircraft operating in and around the U.S. air defense identification zones.”
Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon, who broke the story, wrote that the bomber flights are the “latest case of nuclear saber rattling by the Russians.”
Russia also violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty of 1987 signed by Reagan and Gorbachev by testing a nuclear cruise missile.
President Barack Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney for saying that Russia was America’s biggest strategic threat in the 2012 election:
A few months ago, when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia. Not al Qaeda; you said Russia. The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.
Admiral Cecil Haney, head of US Strategic Command, has spoken about the Russian nuclear threat, saying that Russia conducted several large nuclear war games in May.
He said this recently at a defense industry breakfast:
Additionally, we have seen significant Russian strategic aircraft deployments in the vicinity of places like Japan, Korea, and even our West Coast.
He went on to say:
Russia continues to modernize its strategic capabilities across all legs of its triad, and open source [reporting] has recently cited the sea trials of its latest [missile submarine], testing of its newest air-launched cruise missile and modernization of its intercontinental ballistic force to include its mobile capability in that area.
How concerned should the world be about Russia? Is Russia now a significant threat to American interests? Or was Hillary Clinton’s Russian “reset” successful?
