We must reconnect with each other’s humanity.

This image best describes what is happening in Gaza. Gaza is the world’s largest open-air prison. Even calling the action against Palestinians in Gaza a war seems lacking in description. A war implies some equality in combat. What is happening in Gaza is a massacre by one of the world’s most powerful armies, abetted by the silence of western nations.

Fortunately people are beginning to speak out worldwide. But as we speak out, let us do so without condemning a people in whose name a government may act.

We must distinguish between governments and the people who are governed.

We must reconnect with each other’s humanity.

The plight of the Palestinian people is ultimately the plight of the entire world, locked into endless conflicts which make no sense, which could be avoided, which constitute enormous abuse of power and which bring the slaughter of innocents. Let our hearts be moved by the desire to end war once and for all. —Dennis Kucinich

Beautiful sunset I capture on my return home.

Mi almuerzo hoy: Arroz junto con bacalao, una deliciosa ensalada de pulpo con camarones y king crab, y un mofongo bien boricua. Quedo de chuparse los dedos esta comida hecha en casa.

Native American Man Shuts up Anti-Immigrant Protesters in Arizona

WOW… THE TRUTH CAN NEVER BE SILENCED.. He gave them a history lesson.

"A Native American man criticized protesters at an Arizona rally against illegal immigration, calling them the real "illegals" for invading his country and killing Native Americans when Europeans first settled on US soil.

"You’re all fucking illegal. You’re all illegal," the Native American man yelled at the protesters, who had gathered in Tucson, Arizona to demonstrate their opposition to illegal immigration by Central and South Americans. "We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only native Americans here."

A Native American man protested an anti illegal immigrant protest in Arizona by pointing out the protestors hypocrisy. “Get on with your bogus arguments. We’re the only legal ones here,” he yelled. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss.
