Chicana Memorandum: I am Joaquin, Joaquin, Joaquin "...Fiery tequila explosions The smell of chile verde and Soft brown eyes of expectation for a Better life.” – Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Joaquin No. 1 - The Past Yo Soy Joaquin, known in English as I Am Joaquin, is an unforgettable Chicano poem written by Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales. The poem is a timeless piece, and many of its elements still apply today even though it was written in 1965, during an assertive Chicano movement era of the 1960's and 70s. It is a timeless piece because Mexican-American Chicanos and Latinos face anti-Mexican or anti-Latino laws, primarily written by Anglo gray-haired white men in Washington, D.C., who are afraid of too much browning of America. Most Mexican-Americans who are involved in the political arena are familiar with this poem, because the poem says things that some people are afraid to say publicly. It is no wonder Corky was able to state these bold truths while staring his activism demons in the face – he ...

Weary of reading obituaries noting someone’s courageous battle with death, Corey wanted it known that he died as a result of refusing to follow doctors’ orders, being stubborn, and raising *** for more than four decades. He was a bright star that burned for 41 years, and went out way before his time on Wed. 29, 2014. Corey was born May 5, 1972 in Agat, Guam. Corey lived in Oklahoma all of his life, and made a reputation for himself from Texas all the way through Rhode Island, and was loved by many people far and wide. He served in the National Guard, survived Capitol Hill High School, and battled life on the South Side of Oklahoma City, and died in his home in Norman, OK, where he lived with his love Reba Gaddis.

BOEHNER CALLS GOP REP 'A--HOLE' IN FRONT OF DEMS (CNSNEWS) — House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the most powerful Republican in Congress, called his GOP colleague Rep. Steve King of Iowa an “a–hole” while speaking with two Democratic members on the House floor, according to Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas). Castro described what happened in a story he wrote for the February issue of Texas Monthly magazine. Back in July 2013, Rep. King, a conservative popular with the Tea Party, commented on illegal immigrants in an interview with Newsmax, saying that not all young illegals are valedictorians but that many smuggle drugs into America.

Just sent this letter to Julian and Joaquin Castro on minimum wage: I see that many leaders across the country are increasing the minimum wage for their areas. I was wondering if you have the power to do that or what it would take to get a “Minimum Wage “ initiative on the ballot in 2014 (tied to inflation)? Polls show that an increase to the minimum wage is popular even among Republicans and Tea Party members. If it is put on the ballot, it will bring out more Democrats and Independents to the polls. Democratic officials will be showing that they are for the people while Republicans are for the rich. Populist initiatives have proven to be very popular (look at he New York mayor’s race with Bill de Blasio). Two thirds of the people on minimum wage are women and women are already only getting paid 77 cents on the dollar as compared to men. This would help win over women voters. Republicans keep saying it will cut jobs. This is a lie. Every time the minimum wage has been increased it has helped the ec ...

With the new Texas dems Mark Veasey, Joaquin Castro, Filemom Vela and Pete Gallego at
Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, and Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio on the changing face of Texas politics.
On inauguration day it is not too early for us to begin thinking about (and I'm sure the other side is doing this) who we will run in 2016. While I love Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, I think the other side will try to push young and Hispanic, even if ignorant. I believe a ticket like super smart Elizabeth Warren & Antonio Villaraigosa could be a winning one for us. I would say Julian or Joaquin Castro for VP ... but not sure how voters would feel about that last name??? Thoughts? We could achieve the first woman President and first Hispanic VP in one election.
How long into his politically ambitious career will Rep. Joaquin Castro hold on to supporting the Texas gun-crazed Castle Doctrine?
Joaquin Castro wasted no time in making his mark in Congress.
Popular San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, is shown here in the new Congressional office of his twin brother Joaquin Castro (Representative - TX). These Democratic Party dynamos are changing the face of Texas politics and there is much talk of Julian running for Governor in 2014. - Michael (photo share suggested by Kat Edmiston)

*Spanish La Liga Team of the Week* *Don't forget to Like & Share our page* Lionel Messi wrote himself into the record books on Sunday after he netted his 86th goal in 2012 to break Gerd Muller's record for most goals in a calendar year. By ESPNSTAR.com staff But even though the Argentinean's brace in Barcelona's 2-1 win over Real Betis earned him a place in footballing folklore, he was arguably overshadowed by Atletico Madrid hitman Radamel Falcao, who scored an astounding five goals in his side's 6-0 victory over Deportivo La Coruna. Elsewhere, a well-taken brace by Mesut Ozil helped Real Madrid avoid an embarrassing result at Valladolid with a 3-2 triumph, while Malaga's moved up to the top four after thumping Granada 4-0. ESPNSTAR.com picks our best 11 players from this week's round of La Liga matches in a 4-3-3 formation. GK: Willy Caballero (Malaga) Los Boquerones may have beaten Granada comprehensively on Saturday, but the scoreline was largely flattering as their opponents more than matched them on ...

Anf God's sake, everyone STOP !! mentioning marco rubio as some kind of leader for the tremendously diverse Spanish speaking population. He may be a good representative for the cuban population in Miami but he sure as *** does not represent me or the central and south american people. Besides he's yet another mouthpiece of the republican party. IF you want to talk about true representatives of the Spanish speaking population look no further than Joaquin Castro the Mayor of San Antonio. If I hear more crap about how good maro rubio is or will be, I'll puke.
Congratulations to Brownie Park supporter and newly elected US Congressman Joaquin Castro.

Obama is president again, Joaquin Castro and Pete Gallego are in the Senate, Pre-K for SA was passed, and so many other democratic leaders are elected. I couldn't fight the tears of joy last night, and woke up with the brightest smile on my face today. To know that I spent blood, sweat, and tears to help campaign for the Democratic Party brings such pride to me. Keep moving Forward America! :)
Made the paper today congratulating my new congressman, Joaquin Castro. Photo from
I think you mean Julian Castro. :) (or twin Joaquin) :P But I think Hillary is retiring and Biden will try to be prez.
Julian and Joaquin Castro remember these names
Historical election last night once again. Locally, we passed the Pre K for SA initiative and Joaquin Castro is San Antonio’s newest congressman. Just like his brother Julian, I am sure he will make us all proud. Nationally, the election marked a success for *** and *** voters as the state of Wisconsin became the first state to elect an openly *** or *** representative to the United States Senate. Also, ballot initiatives to allow same-sex marriage were adopted in Maine and Maryland, while others in Minnesota and Washington State are too close to call as further ballots are counted. Glad to see our nation continue to progress and that civil rights is alive in the USA. I sincerely hope the Republican Party finally learns from their mistakes and uses this as an opportunity to understand demographics. They MUST make strides to identify with women, African Americans, Latino’s, the *** and *** community, etc. They also need to understand that they MUST reject listening to and promoting ...
So optimistic about our future. Congrats to & newly elected Congressman Joaquin Castro. 🇺🇸
Congrats San Antonio and Mayor Julián Castro on passing Pre-K fro SA. And congrats to Congressman elect Joaquin Castro for Congress and Congressman elect Pete Gallego.

Giddy this morning. I'm so proud of Elizabeth Warren and Clare McCaskill, Tammy Baldwin, many others around the country--and of course Julian and Joaquin Castro and Lloyd Doggett here in SA. Now to liberalize the rest of Texas . . . a daunting task.
Victory for Pete Gallego and Joaquin Castro, and "Pre-K for SA" is a go!
