Three Sonorans – blogger/publicist; deception by deflection, attempted polarization, sour grapes- all with underlying misogyny and prejudice

After being called on his misogynist oriented blogging and continued spread of misinformation, some weeks ago, DA Morales, also known as Three Sonorans (TS), proclaimed that his blog would be shut down. The TS absence lasted only a few days and many pockets were lined with quick cash from bets won against his promise. We are regretful to have won the bet! At a New Year’s party, Richard M.

This is what the border must look like To the thirsty To the hungry – Dry, cracking Earth where I stand Dying, withered weeds Trash. Zionist wrappers. Empty Bottles of water And then- My eyes feast on the…

Esto no es para ti

Esto no es para ti ni nadien en particular No te creas tan especial por que en verdad no lo eres No tomo de mi tiempo para escribirte o cambiarte por que eso solo tu lo sabrás   Esto es para desahogarme para sacar todo el coraje para contar mi historia Ya que no me escuchaste utilizo mi pluma para escribir mis palabras y pensamientos   Estoy aquí utilizando mi pluma  no para escribirte pero para desahogarme  y para decirte todo lo que te dije o te quise decir pero nunca me escuchaste y mucho menos me entendiste   No…
