Well as the title says there was a new addition to the family this week and that’s why there was no video. Juan Martin arrived a couple of weeks early and of course chaos ensued. The family controversy which is normal in this family was there, but in the end, Juan Martin made his appearance and all is well. This is our third grandchild so he has lots of cousins and aunts and uncles to keep him spoiled for a long time. I, because he was premature just got to see him yesterday and was amazed he was so tiny. But, he looks great and sounds good too. When I’m around babies I always have the fear of dropping them or someone is going to yell at me because they think I’m doing something wrong. I am very happy for Hader and Estefania they are happy which means I’m happy. I’m going to go over to YouTube and do a video right now it will be political in nature. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO From Medellin, Colombia.

Football is over for now and the world turns back to war and politics. If we are to believe the news it would appear that Putin and Russia are losing the battle in Ukraine. He also seems to be in some trouble politically. You see a lot of people happy about that but I always feel it’s better to know the enemy in front of you than one you don’t. In our country, it appears right now that Trump is slipping fast and DeSantis is rising. DeSantis has the appearance of being much more dangerous than Trump. I personally think that if he runs he’ll win but that is if he runs against Biden. Joe is a really nice guy but I think he is too old to run again and that we need young fresh blood not only at the top but in Congress and Senate as well. They’ll tell you he has the experience, that might be true but he doesn’t have the understanding of the culture that’s around now. I don’t think he could sit down with a 21-year-old college kid and have a discussion about anything that is relevant in today’s world. The 21-year-old would get impatient and he would seem to be lost. I as you all know am 77 years old I’m fortunate to be able to talk to young people every day and learn their points of view. I think they are much more aware than we give them credit for I also think it’s time to let the swim or sink since they are the ones who are going to be around in a few years and have to deal with the mess we leave them. The problem is if you look at the younger politicians like DeSantis you see the same thing they want the world to think like they do and they believe they are right and you are wrong. That’s how wars start. You know my God is the real God and yours is a fake. Well, I have always had a problem with people telling me how I should or shouldn’t believe. Listen I’ll be doing videos again starting either tonight or tomorrow check out Youtube or Facebook for live times. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

This is the 57th super bowl and I have watched every single one and will be doing so this year as well. I don’t bet on the game anymore and from a lot of what I’ve been reading that’s probably a good thing. There have been some ex-players who have written articles that the games are fixed. Now I don’t know about recent games but I do know from talking to players from the Jets-colts game who say that one was definitely fixed. I remember watching a regular season game with my older brother who played the game and had interest from the Green bay Packers and the New York Giants before tearing up his knee. The game was between two good teams and one team beat the other by thirty points and my brother said that there was no way two teams of such equal talent could have such a lopsided result. He didn’t say the game was fixed but he was pretty convincing in his opinion of the game’s results. I remember when Giants QB Phil Sims got his knee busted up I talked to the player responsible for blocking for him and he said it was a whoops block. Apparently, Sims wasn’t liked very much by the players. This year I’ve seen some obvious blown calls there was some uproar but most of them didn’t affect who won the game but they did affect the point spread. The legalization of sports betting has made me feel uncomfortable about the results of a lot of the games, some are beginning to look like soccer which I’ve always felt should be like pro wrestling and called entertainment. Well, that’s it for me for today depending on my agenda for Monday I might be back tomorrow with an assessment of the game. In the meantime, this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin and go CHIEFS.

You all know that I consider myself genuinely independent and that I think all politicians lie. Well recently Kevin McCarthy has gone a little far I think he and some of his Republican friends should remove their lips from Trump’s ass and do the job they were supposedly elected for that is to work for all the people. In reality, we know Kevin can’t do that he has used super glue to attach his lips so even the truth can’t remove them. You know when I was a kid if I lied I would get a beating, not a pat on the back, and a cushy government job. Maybe I shouldn’t be so honest perhaps then I wouldn’t be living on just Social Security from month to month. That brings us to Pence who has said he wants to privatize Social Security. If he does that he better have a lot of room in his house because I’m going to be moving in. Somewhere along the line, we have elected officials that don’t even pretend to care about the people but rather just play God with our lives as if we don’t matter. We have politicians that want to remove democracy from the dictionary and say there is just one way to live your life the way we think you should. I see a lot of dark clouds on the horizon for this country and it’s sad. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
