  • Humberto Fontova: “The Don is slipping.” Looks like it might be true this time?

  • asombra: There’s a misspelling on that plaque. It should have read “Esta es tu caca, Fidel.”

  • asombra: Don’t worry. Castro, Inc. knows what it’s doing, and it knows its public.

  • asombra: Either these people are pitiful idiots or they think everyone else is.

  • asombra: Because, you know, Reuters cares SO much about Cubans, so it really “feels their pain.” Just like Clinton did.

Dear Mr Hayden: My “octogenarian Cuban mother” wants to give you a “bofetada”

It's easy to get angry and throw Tom Hayden's column in the trash and move on to happier thoughts in this season of "Navidad". After all, Mr Hayden has very little influence. He's been irrelevant since Chicago 1968, or when he was running with other misguided fools waving Viet Cong flags! We also remember Tom […]

“Barbara y su falso mesías”

Barbara Walters admitted the obvious, i.e. too many people got caught up in Obama the Messiah: "Barbara Walters said the difficulties engulfing President Barack Obama are a reflection of the let-down people are feeling from the high expectations they had during his earliest days in office when she and others thought he was going to […]

“Le ronca el mango” and other things that people are saying about the ObamaCare premiums!

You don't have to read any polls to figure out that the public is very disappointed. Just talk to them. Ask adults about a job or young people about looking for one! Or ask them about paying higher premiums so that ObamaCare can work. Let me tell you what one of my sons' friends said […]

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 […]

Even “El Pais” thinks that Branson was over the top!

We saw Alberto De La Cruz's post earlier today about Richard Branson dressing up as Che to promote his new business ventures. I found this from "El Pais" in Spain to be rather interesting: "Si el Che Guevara levantara la cabeza, probablemente volvería a morirse al ver que uno de los hombres más ricos del mundo, defensor del capitalismo […]

Earth Day, Shmearth Day

The great Stevie J West expounds on the real celebration going on today -- hint: it ain't about the Earth: Happy “We’re really celebrating the birthday of one of our leftist heroes, Lenin, in addition to the eco-tyranny we’re pushing, but we don’t want to advertise our love of the Bolsheviks to the aggressively ignorant […]

New Cuba Sage: “I done turned Havana into Atlanta”

Last week it was the tale of two black women in Cuba. This week it's the tale of two rappers. Well, that was fast, huh? You wrote a real good rap song, real good rap song, Jay-Z. It's all about his trip to Cuba and his transforming and enlightening experiences there. Must've wrote it on […]

Political correctness on Tatooine

Lego to stop production of Star Wars set due to Muslim 'sensitivity': Lego will cease production of a popular “Star Wars” toy set after Muslim communities complained about the product as the company says the criticism played no part in the decision to do so. The Independent reports that several Muslim groups in Austria claimed “Jabba’s […]

This is why Hollywood is held in such contempt by conservatives

In October of 2008 I posted links to the YouTube videos of the documentary about the Weather Underground. It is a damning documentary that exposes these radical fro what they are. Today, from Michelle Malkin, we learn that a movie -- a hagiography -- is being released about these murderers and terrorists. Is it any wonder […]

And how many more like her are there?

Folks, I think you all know that on this blog we call it like we see it. I have felt for the longest time that we have to stop sugar-coating who these liberals and progressives are and call them what they are: marxists, socialists, and crypto-communists. Here is a case in point, via Trevor Loudon's […]

Black Flag

For Andrew I have writer's block. It's not that I can't find stuff to write about, but rather that everything that I write ends up in the recycle bin when I proof it. It ends up there not because it lacks substance or the delivery is less than what I set up as a standard […]

Occupy Wall Street Populated by the 1%

This is rich. According to a new study from sociologists at the City University of New York, more than a third of activists in the Occupy movement in New York City had household incomes above $100,000, placing them at the cusp of the top quintile of income distribution in America. Researchers surveyed 729 people who […]

Breeding the Low Information Voter

I had a conversation with the parent of one of my rec league basketball team kids last week that was rather insightful, and (in my opinion) indicative of the larger problem facing this country today. We were having a team meeting after a particularly disheartening loss, and the kids were every bit as frustrated as […]

Our ‘Islamist’ predicament

Hot on the heels of CAIR telling journalists not to use the term "Islamist" because it's Extremist/Racist/Sexist/Homophobic™ (or whatever), comes a thoughtful essay From The American Spectator, about our Islamist predicament. At least since 9/11, the Muslim jihad against the West has led to a number of eloquent books detailing the plight of the West […]

Chavez Dies For Socialism…

...but NOT as he would have wanted, going down in a blaze of glory like Che Guevara, perhaps in mortal combat with U.S. Marines. Nope, the Venezuelan dictator and Numero Uno fan of the bearded beast is going down at the hands of Castro's medical machine, helpless, in pain, taking orders from Cuban state doctors. […]
