Machete in the back

Yesterday Obama visited the Our Lady of Charity shrine in Miami, a VERY symbolic and SACRED place for the Cuban Exile community. Now because of this visit many are calling this a “symbolic” visit or an “olive branch” extended out to the Cuban Exile community because of Obama’s move to normalize relations with the dictatorship […]

Russian Spy Ship docked in Havana

Russian spy ship docked in Havana? Apparently most journalist or experts can't figure it out, even though Inspector Clouseau would have no problem figuring it out.

Cuba News……53hour swim for Diana Nyad!

Just Google the word “Cuba” and all you see is articles about Diana Nyad’s swim from Cuba to Florida. No mentions of those missiles found in Panama or the daily repression in Cuba? Don’t get me wrong, it’s an incredible feat that she performed, but it’s an incredible INSULT to Cubans who have died trying […]

Why Should I be Happy?

Over the years I have known people(non-Cuban) who have gone to Cuba. Now I understand Cubans who go the island to visit their family. Me personally, I will never step foot in Cuba until the Castro dictatorship is gone. I have many reasons that I do not need to validate with anyone. My family suffered […]
