“Hungry Venezuelans cry at the sight of food, as economic crisis deepens”



While reading this article concerning Venezuelans crying at the sight of food, it brought back a vivid memory of a similiar experience! Back in the early 1980’s, my father had a family member visit us from Cuba(never knew the exact details to why?). This family member apparently was with the so called revolution , I could feel the anxiety within my family with the anticipation of his visit. Well, we pick him up at the airport and we stop by a grocery store and we all go in all together, I suddenly notice this family member from Cuba SCREAMING at the top of their lungs RUNNING up and down the aisles of this grocery store saying:


Top 10 things to do on a Carnival Cruise Line to Cuba!

top 10


1) Spot a Cuban Rafter Game:

Get your binoculars ready! Since Cubans are leaving the “UTOPIA” of Cuba on hand made rafts, risking their lives, try to spot Cuban Rafters in the open ocean, in the comforts of your Cabin, or the luxurious balcony!

2) Spot a Cuban American on the ship game:

If the first game is a little to strenuous for you, try this fun filled adventure, roam along the ship and try to spot the un-wanted Cuban-Americans, have fun blowing their cover and turning them in to have them removed from the ship!

3) Get your memorable t-shirts on these momentous cruise:

El Cafe Cubano suggests to get the cool, trendy, normalization t-shirts with the saying:

” La Revolucion es una mierda!”

translation: “Normalization is so cool!”

4) When the ship docks…Drink a mojito at the La Bodeguita del Medio:

While drinking your mojito, raise your glass and toast ” Que mierda es el comunismo!”

Translation: ” We have to see Cuba before it changes!”

5) Visit the monument of Che in Santa Clara:

While visiting the monument of che, stop for a second, start to reflect and ponder how many Cubans he executed!

6) March with the Ladies White:

No it’s not a conga line, better…, get out and exercise while marching with the Ladies in White on the way to Church. Don’t mind the police beating up the ladies simply doing a quite protest.

7) Guess the dictator’s date of Death:

Since the dictator Fidel knows everything and he knows his precise moment of death, go by on a tour bus by punto cero(the dictator’s compound) and get off the bus and yell towards the compound the precise date that you think the dictator will expire! For kicks yell out the time also!!

Grand prize for the winner: a bottle of Jalapa!

8) Ask Raul about political prisoners in Cuba tour:

Carnival cruise Lines can hook you up on Q&A tour with dictator Raul. My suggestion is to ask Raul about political prisoners in Cuba….That should get the Q&A session off to a bang!

9) Take a Cuban to Varadero:

Since Cubans are not allowed in varadero or own anything in Cuba for that regards, take a whole Cuban family to the stolen properties and illegal hotels on Varadero beach!!!!
10) Explore Havana in a classic 50’s car:

Cruising around Havana in an open top 50’s relic(rebuilt with 1000 different kinds of spare parts) would have to be the highlight of any trip to Cuba. Snap chat, twitter, and facebook away while taking in the sights of all the stolen properties that are dilapidated by years of neglect and abuse

Let me introduce myself……The Rolling Stones announce free concert in Cuba

Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a communist dictatorship full of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long 57 years
Stole many properties, land, and Cuba’s soul and faith
And I was ’round when we executed and imprisoned the Cuban people
Had their moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that che and my cronies
Washed their hands and sealed their fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name(sing it louder, remember it’s historic!!)
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I’ve stuck around 57 years
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed more of my people and imprisoned them, and took their FREEDOM away
The Cuban people screamed in vain
I ride a Mercedez, while my people ride in 1950 cars
Held a commadante rank(57 years)
When my security apparatis go on a rage
And while the bodies stink in my dungeons
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While my useful idiots
Fought for my ideology for decades
For the absurd ideology of communism and robbing you of your soul
I shouted out,
“Who killed the Cuban people?”
When after all
It was me and my regime
Let me please introduce myself
I’m a regime full of vast wealth and taste
And I laid traps for those who try to defeat me
Who get killed before they reach me
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every one in my regime is a criminal
And all the atrocities keep going after 57 years
As normalization they think will change my ways
Just call me the castro regime
Cause I’m in need of some regime change and the Cuban people need FREEDOM
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy and give us all that we want
Have some sympathy, Give me Guantanamo, and millions of tourist dollars
Use all your well-learned politesse and call it “NORMALIZATION”
Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, um yeah, and give you NOTHING in return
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who(sing it louder…here comes the guitar riff)
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah
What’s me name
Tell me, baby, what’s my name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s my name
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Oh, yeah

Obama to visit Cuba in March


Obama plans to visit Cuba in March and the news media again triumphantly trumpeting the word “HISTORIC“……..yet many of us feel like a machete has pierced us right through the back!

Is Obama again legitimizing a cruel communist dictatorship?

Remember when Obama did the unscheduled “HOLA” tour at our beloved sacred Ermita? The very next day he announced the opening of relations with Cuba, without asking in reciprocation from Cuba to do something and loosen it grip on the Cuban people!


HISTORIC will be the day the Cuban people are FREE……

Historic Day in Cuba?


The word HISTORIC is being said a thousand times today, but in reality a NON-HISTORIC SAD day for freedom. If you think different than that of the dictatorship in Cuba and that of the Obama regime, you are NOT even considered in regards to Cuba.

I am not a poet, but I have a poem for this NON-HISTORIC day and the continued betrayal of the Cuban people:

56 years of misery,

caused by a diabolical tyranny,

why must the Cuban people continue to suffer?

millions have been oppressed,

yet they get NO press?

My God, my God, why have you forsaken us?

Our faith, endurance, and confidence continually test us!

All we ask is for Cuba to be FREE,

Not those who sell their dignity!!!

Not just the opening of Embassies

Kerry speaking with glee at the embassy


Is that to much of your flock to ask of thee?

Just as Our Lady has asked us to fast and pray,

we come to your arms dear Lord looking for that DAY!!!!!



Letter to the Pope

My fellow FREEDOM loving brethren……Below is a letter that I e-mailed to Pope Francis, I urge all of you to send an email, fax, or call the Vatican to request that the image of Che be removed, or covered during the Holy Mass on September 20, 2015 at 9:00AM

The Pope does not have his personal email listed , but the vatican provides this e-mail:


Your Holiness,

This is a letter to wish you well, that God will bring you many blessings, and to ask your help in regards to Cuba. On September 20 (Havana) the Holy Mass is scheduled for 9am in Havana’s Revolution Square. The first request for help: Please cover the image of Che Guevara, and have the image of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ instead! The image of Jesus Christ beaming to millions on TV and to those in Cuba is more reflective of the sacred mass, than the image of an executioner of the Cuban people.
The second plea for help: Please allow the Damas de Blanco (Ladies in White) to attend the Holy Mass on September 20, 2015!

Thank you and God bless!

El Café Cubano

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 of Cuba.

On the outside, it seems warm, and fuzzy. The first President to visit the shrine, but a DEEP DOWN feeling that I have is that of a MACHETE piercing through my back.


-Well let’s see…..The US is about to drop Cuba form the State sponsor of terrorism. What a coincidence that TODAY is the last day of the 45 day period that congress could of challenged the President’s decision to remove Cuba form the state sponsored terror list.
– Obama opened the door for the normalization of relations between Cuba and the US.


-Basically the President ignored and left out the Cuban exile community and the people of Cuba.

But….Alfredo, the president visited our shrine and said “hola” to those in the church! Yes, and the dictator Fidel and his revolutionaries came down the mountain all wearing rosaries…..and 56 years later …the nightmare continues!!!

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. Well, let’s see, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS are out in the streets in Venezuela, and maybe could it be that the dictator of Cuba is preparing for civil disobedience in Cuba? Venezuela and Cuba could both tumble down by the hands of it’s own people? Look what happened in the Ukraine!

No… No…NO…Alfredo…it’s strictly about the bases

Merry Christmas….Meri Crisma

Meaning of Christmas? I am still learning and yearning for the TRUE meaning of Christmas. Yes, our Lord savior was born for us, but over the years myself and many need to be reminded of this message. True sacrifice for others, how many have died or are in prison standing up for FREEDOM and for an entire country! You can’t put that in a box or in a Christmas card.

We all are given special gifts! God has blessed me with a beautiful, loving, and most caring(should get bonus points for this!) wife and wonderful children!

What more can I ask for?

I have been blessed with the greatest parents! Always there with a smile and a “how can I help you!” I really don’t know how to thank you. God bless you my dear parents!

What more can I ask for? I have been blessed with special friends WHO always stand behind me with support! God bless you my friends!

God, THANK YOU for ALL the special blessings!

Just one more thing Lord…..A FREE Cuba!!!
