  • TWFKAP: We already have leaders like Bob Menendez: Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz,...

  • asombra: The condensed EU response: “Get a clue and don’t make us laugh.”

  • asombra: Was Menendez going for a “mature” Saturday Night Fever look? Bad idea.

  • asombra: And look, they even got the guards to dress up for this. Too bad their caps don’t match their uniforms. Clowns.

  • asombra: And isn’t Diana dressed for the occasion? At least that cow in the background put on a “cocktail” outfit....

MOSCOW - Tens of thousands of Russians marched through Red Square on Thursday as part of May Day celebrations in the first such display of Soviet-era-like ceremony since 1991 - the year the communist Soviet Union dissolved.

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: A Sense of Humor

This is my "Tweet of The Week". It was national 'Wear Red Day' to raise awareness for heart disease... Two Cuban-Americans who took different paths but both with great style!

From the North Coast: A PSA for You Southern Snowmen/women

Ugh! This stuff has gone viral, like a nasty flu bug through a pre-school classroom. It appears people in the south, who are not all that familiar with the physics and the properties of snow/ice/water are falling for the "fake"/"plastic" snow hoax on the internet. Lots of videos like this are being uploaded onto YouTube, […]

To The Point: “I think ‘normalizing’ relations has a lot more to do with Cuba…”

I share this mostly because of an email exchange I had just last night with a friend who lives in San Fransisco. A few days ago my SF friend had sent out a group email with info on how you could help those who were dealing with the contaminated water in West Virginia. She fowarded […]

Really Bad Revisionist History in Pictures

History in Pictures @ History In Pix on Twitter posts "historic" photos daily on their account. The problem is, they either got caught in a photoshop scam, or crafted one themselves as they offered the above photo yesterday. (The tweet looks to have since been removed from their account.) It was a photoshop, as Nickarama […]

When Every Second Counts

A fascinating look at just a second from every day out of a year that we would typically throw down the memory hole in the whole contest of just one day, let alone 365... From The Blaze: Three hundred sixty-five seconds. It’s amazing how just one second a year adds up and can give a […]

Holiday Programming Note: CBS to Run Classic “I Love Lucy” Episodes

CBS is offering quite a holiday treat this Friday evening. Two classic "I Love Lucy" episodes will run back to back, with an interesting twist. They have been “colorized with a vintage look” (pre-airing reactions to this from "Lucy" purists are mixed). One is the "I Love Lucy Christmas Show" (1956), and the other is […]

Obam(ACA)re* Looks A Lot Like CastroCare

ObamaCare architect Zeke Emanuel will now explain to you unwashed dolts exactly why you cannot keep that doctor you have been seeing for years and years, and trust with your medical history, (real) healthcare, and life... Got that, dummies? 1) Because Obama did not say you could have unlimited "choice". Where the Hell did you […]

Hemingway’s Cuba … Things of Fiction Now

For your consideration... Finn-Olaf Jones @ The Wall Street Journal tells the story of a romantic and exotic Cuba that writer Hemingway chose for his creative and personal refuge ... the Cuba of "The Old Man and the Sea" ... that seems all but fiction over 50 years later as generations of post-Castro Cubans struggle […]

Nelson Mandela Dies…

South Africa's first black president has died after a long illness. History will remember his life, to be sure. While I appreciate and respect Nelson Mandela's struggles and his being a political prisoner within his own country for a large part of his life, I am not unaware of his post-prison political ideology and all […]

Just in Time for the Holidays: Finger Puppets for the Communist Puppets

Great little stocking-stuffer for the kids, huh? Does it come with a 4-fingers little firing squad and a 5-fingers blind-folded, bloody, bullet-riddled murdered Cubans for the other 9 fingers? I've got a special finger for the Che finger puppet and "The Nation", and it doesn't require a puppet... Looking for the perfect finger puppet of […]
