Mr Halperin: Ted is not the only Cuban American who loves country music!

  We understand that Mr Halperin has apologized.    I'm sure that Senator Cruz will accept it.   After all, Senator Cruz kept his cool during that stupid and silly interview. I do have a message for Mr Halperin:    Ted Cruz is not the only Cuban American who likes country music. I do too. […]

Happy # 80 to Pedro Ramos

The left in full “freak-out mode” because Rubio & Cruz don’t look or sound “Hispanic”

Who told the left that Hispanics were all supposed to believe or sound the same way? The bottom line is that Hispanics in the US are a diversified group of people.   We should respect our differences rather than engage in these attacks against those of us who didn't buy into "hope and change".   […]

So finally the Miami Herald mentioned Ted Cruz’s presidential candidacy in the main page of their online edition.(!)

Do Younger Cuban-Americans Think Differently Than Their Parents on Cuba?

There are many out there in fantasy land who justify the Obama/Castro Accord of December 17, 2014, by saying that a majority of Americans – and they put special emphasis on the younger members of the Cuban-American community – support the opening.  Well, here is a speech by the Cuban-American Connecticut State Senator Art Linares […]

Cuban-Americans: Who They Are and How They Are Perceived

Cuban-Americans, primarily those belonging to the Historic Exile (1959-1979), have been the target of insults lately after President Obama announced a new opening to Communist Cuba on December 17, 2014. They have been called all kinds of pejoratives – Batista sympathizers, inveterate hardliners, cavemen, reactionaries. They don’t deserve these slanderous labels. Those who mischaracterize them […]

Remembering February 24, 1996

This is my American Thinker post this morning: "Wonder why the Castro regime is on the State Department terrorist list? It earned it! Furthermore, it does not get any more criminal than the killing of civilians on a humanitarian mission." Read the full article.......here!

Remembering Luis Aguile 1936-2009

We remember that Luis Aguile was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on this day in 1936.   He died in 2009. Back in the 1960s, our family spent many cold winter nights in Wisconsin listening to "Cuando sali de Cuba".  It always put a tear in my parents' eyes. Thanks to the late Luis Aguile […]
