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 […]

Honduras 1, Zelaya 0

On Sunday, the people of Honduras voted to reject Mrs Zelaya, who was nothing but a front for Mr Zelaya. The public knows that Zelaya was a disaster, as The Washington Post pointed out: "Beset by some of the worst poverty and crime in the Western Hemisphere, Honduran voters had many reasons to reject the […]

100 “Bourgeois” Businessmen Arrested in Floundering Venezuela

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 […]

Venezuela has Seized Control of Two American Oil Rigs

American companies should protest this by pulling out of Venezuela immediately. But they won't... CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela has quietly seized control of two oil rigs owned by a unit of Houston-based Superior Energy Services after the company shut them down because the state oil monopoly was months behind on payments. The seizure took […]

And So It Begins…

The New York Post is reporting thousands of elderly patients have already lost, and are about to lose, their doctors because their Medicare plans are dropping the physicians out of their network. And this is just New York. I live in Ohio and my Mother told me at the beginning of this week that in […]

Why ObamaCare is NOT a Failure…

If you take the time to read just one thing this weekend seriously consider this article... Wayne Allyn Root outlines why ObamaCare is going as planned, and is not a "trainwreck", but the red train charging down the tracks headed for the destruction of our nation's political, societal and cultural structure ... and if the […]

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

Steve Leisman of CNBC had a very embarassing moment today: "There was a brief moment of awkwardness on CNBC Tuesday morning when, during a discussion of the weak jobs report and Senator Ted Cruz, reporterSteve Liesman asked for some “Mexican music” to be played while they talked about Cruz. 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... Lost in the hubbub surrounding the malfunctioning HealthCare.gov is another missed deadline and closed door for millions of Americans seeking health insurance: Cuidado­DeSalud.gov. 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?

Has anybody seen Secretary Sebelius?  She is apparently up in Massachusetts and avoiding any serious questions about this disaster known as the ObamaCare roll out. 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. […]
