2014 begins now

And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women – except, of course —those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff, But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years – whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know – actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.

march10 001Just about everybody votes for President of the United States. It might just be in their imagination, it might just be when they’re talking to their rear-view mirror, it might just be at the breakfast table. Some actually make it to the polls.

Some people think that off-year elections – like those in 2014 – aren’t important.  That election will be MORE important than 2012 because it’s your future and, just like last year, every seat in the U. S. House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate seats are open to election.

Twenty-one male Republican senators voted against the Violence Against Women Act and these nine seats are up for re-election in 2014:  Sessions (AL), Risch (ID), Roberts (KS), McConnell (KY), Johanns (NE, retiring), Inhofe (OK), Graham (SC), Cornyn (TX), and Enzi (WY).

If you think voting for a member of the House of Representative is a waste of time, remember that the House is where spending bills – how the government spends your tax money – originate.

Only you can prevent more sandbagging by Teabaggers.

So it’s not too early to mention Voto Latino.

Telenovela for Voto Latino:  La Pasion de la Decision (episodio 4)

Historia de un Amor

This song has been recorded by so many singers and instrumentalists around the Spanish- and French-speaking worlds that it might be the most performed bolero. This rendition by the group French Latino contains both Spanish and French lyrics.

Letra

Ya no estas mas a mi lado corazón
en el alma sólo tengo soledad
y si ya no puedo verte
por qué Dios me hizo quererte
para hacerme sufrir mas.

Coro
Siempre fuiste la razón de mi existir
adorarte para mi fue religión
en tus besos yo encontraba
el calor que me brindaba
el amor y la pasión.

Es la historia de un amor
como no hay otro igual
que me hizo comprender
todo el bien, todo el mal
que le dio luz a mi vida
apagándola después
hay que vida tan obscura
sin tu amor no viviré.

[Coro]

Es la historia de un amor
como no hay otro igual
que me hizo comprender
todo el bien, todo el mal
que le dio luz a mi vida
apagándola después
hay que vida tan obscura
sin tu amor no viviré.

[Coro]
