Yeah, that'll help... Nov 14 (Reuters) – Venezuela’s socialist government has arrested more than 100 “bourgeois” businessmen in a crackdown on alleged price-gouging at hundreds of shops and companies since the weekend, President Nicolas Maduro said on Thursday. “They are barbaric, these capitalist parasites!” Maduro thundered in the latest of his lengthy daily speeches. “We […]

ObamaCare: Nobody Will be Spared

This thing is simply toxic... Millions of Americans are being informed they're being dropped from their insurance plans because the plans don't meet minimum Obamacare standards, but President Obama so far has stood by his promise that "if you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance." Insurance plans […]

The Cubanization of Venezuela: “La bola pica y se extiende”

We Cubans have a lot of great expressions. One of my favorites is "la bola pica y se extiende". It means something like "its complicated" and there is no solution around the corner. For months, our friends at Babalu have been telling you about the "Cubanization" of Venezuela.  Let's add one more episode to that […]

If you take the time to read just one thing this weekend seriously consider this article...

America, She Doesn’t Work for You

However, she sure as heck doesn't seem to have a problem cashing her paychecks, spending her expense account, or getting her primo healthcare from us. This entire administration is governing without the consent of the governed. Nor do they believe they need it. Because shut-up.

Dear Mr Leisman: Cruz is Cuban and the jobs report is pre-shutdown

Liesman said, “We’re going to call this the […]

The Spanish Side of the ObamaCare Exchange is Even Worse…

The Spanish language side of the ObamaCare train wreck is failing even worse than the English version...

The Spanish-language site still does not allow consumers to enroll for exchange coverage, a delay […]

Seriously, Florida? Seriously? – UPDATED

Why does Florida keep sending Alan Grayson back to Washington DC time and time again? Are the people in Grayson's congressional district really of like-mind with this unmitigated, uncivil, uncouth buffoon? Or are they just eager to get him off their streets and out of town? Here is Grayson's latest email... What a propagandistic, agent […]

Why didn’t we hire “the best and the brightest” in the first place?

She did say that the search is on for "the best and the brightest", i.e. the top tech people in the country to fix the Affordable Health Care Act website. […]

The Cancerous ObamaCare Panacea That Keeps on Taking and Taking

New York is not the only place in the nation where hospitals are refusing ObamaCare plans...

Only three of the nine plans being offered on the New […]
