December 11, 1916: Damaso Perez-Prado

Let's take a musical "break" and remember Damaso Perez-Prado, who was born in Matanzas on this day in 1916.   He died in Mexico in 1989. This is one of his many hits from the 1950s:

The real torture is this “partisan one sided” report

The left needs to change the subject because the topic of "Obama" is not a pleasant one, specially for those who got deeply invested in "hope and change".     Watching Secretary Kerry before the US Senate arguing for another war resolution in the Middle East reminded me of just how uncomfortable the left must […]

A couple of “cubanos” who should be in The Baseball Hall of Fame

The Baseball Hall of Fame will soon be announcing the 2015 inductees.    It looks very likely that Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz will join the Hall.   They deserve to go in on the first ballot.  They were great pitchers. Unfortunately, two great "cubanos" from recent baseball memory will not be going […]

The “war president” that needs to say we are at war

President Obama will soon have a new Secretary of Defense.  I don't see any problems with the nomination or reason to vote against it.  He is as good as we are going to get given President Obama's record with the 3 previous men who've held that important job. We wish Mr Carter success as Secretary […]

Obama Care is what happens when you try to fix a problem that we didn’t have

It started with Schumer, Harkin and Webb.  It will very likely grow as more and more Democrats realize that The Affordable Health Care Act is the political equivalent of the Titanic.    Obama Care's main problem is it tried to fix problems that we never had.   It looks like Democrats are realizing that now.    They are […]

My friend Allan Wall goes to Cuba

We've had Allan Wall on our show to talk about Mexico many times.   Allan lived in Mexico and follows the country closely.   He is a good writer who does his homework. Allan just visited Cuba and offered some very interesting thoughts about life in the island nation: "We found the Cuban people to be […]
