This should be interesting. Let's see what happens!

Ms. Nixon, an education activist best known for her work on “Sex and the City,” is expected to challenge Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo from the political left.

This is so unjust. Puerto Rico is been treated as if it's not part of the United States. We must continue keeping Puerto Rico in the conversation because as I write and you read this, thousands of Puertoricans are homeless, with no electricty, and no food.

Apparently this is the only way NYCHA fixes the problems (or some of them). It is shameful. NYCHA needs change from the top.

On Wednesday, two days after Cuomo's surprise visit, crews returned to do the job right this time.

... and meanwhile, those who live in NYCHA buildings continue with no heat, hot water, no repairs, lead, no security cameras, very poor maintenance ... should we continue?

Until the leadership changes, starting from the top, not much will change!


Advocates called for state and local politicians to stop bickering over the problems at public housing and work together to fix them.
The unifying voice of the Obama years digs in for a fractious new era and a second child.

As it should have been ... The sad part is that had this fallen soldier not have died saving others, his sacrifice for keeping all of us safe from enemies overseas, he would have been just another soldier who fought for us.

We need to recognize and treat all of our soldiers with fairness. Approximately 50,000 veterans are homeless (at least that's the info that is made public). No veteran should be living in the street - not single one!…/emmanuel-mensah-funeral-bronx-fir…

Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah’s funeral was the last for the 13 victims of the December fire, the deadliest in New York City in over 25 years.

Many of us are off today, enjoying time at home, with family and/or doing personal errands. The sad part is that many have no idea why we are off and the meaning of President's Day. Check out the link below and know the history behind today!

While I agree that Rikers should be closed down, I also believe that the officers MUST be protected!

PLEASE PRAY FOR TH FAMILIES OF THOSE KILLED ... and let's make sure we pray for our kids' safety.

The gunman, armed with a semiautomatic AR-15 assault rifle, was a former student of the school who began his rampage shortly before dismissal time, the authorities said.

A father tells his son to watch what he does. His son replies saying “you need to be careful. Remember that I follow you.” Being a father has been the greatest Blessing of my life and for that I am grateful to Him. #blessed #bendecido #lovemykids #ljb #bms

This would have never happened under a President like @barackobama or any other President which truly cares about the future of this country. Separating families stands against the principle of our foundation. It is very saddening and concerning that this President ignores that America has been, is and always be home to immigrants from all over the globe. #SupportDACA…/7e459e4a-0b54-11e8-95a5-c3…
