Fom the mailbag:
It doesn’t make a difference anymore….he has become totally irrelevant. He’s as good as dead, even if he is not clinically dead yet. When Raul had the daunting task to speak on July 26th of this year….we have to say that the relief of the effigy of Fidel on the podium where Raul spoke, was a good signal for all of us to understand that the days of Fidel are a thing of the past. IT IS OVER !! Enjoy, his plug has been pulled for once and all. I have to say that this Friday’s so-called “rumors,” didn’t launch a mass of people to the sea in go-fast boats in Miami…but in my opinion the rumors were perhaps launched by “BIG BROTHER” for the authorities to get a glimpse of the reaction of Miami’s Cuban community, if you know what I mean.
I also think it gave the Cuban government another piece of intelligence, I.E., “Don’t launch a rumor before the announcement”. I stand on what I have conveyed..he (Fidel Castro) is DEAD! and the announcement will come, it will catch us off guard but everybody will be moved, both in Cuba and in the United States. THOUGH I must say the Cuban Government will try to prolong his death (as they are doing now) to have Fidel’s legacy live on for as long as possible….for example with there BS… reflections of the commandant articles in the Granma newspaper…give me a break! Trust me the United States government will be privy to (Castro’s death) and with respect (yes as silly as it may seem) to the Cuban Government allow them to make the announcement first, even if it takes a good amount of time to do so.
Dead or alive, who cares!
For the ones that write and voice there opinions on “how can you state that he is DEAD if it hasn’t been announced,” very simple…WHO CARES! HE ISN”T COMING BACK!
Fidel is DEAD….Cuba is in its FIRST stage of Freedom!
THIS UPCOMING LABOR DAY: As a Cuban-American…(born in Cuba) this up coming Labor Day weekend which basically signifies a day of rest for the “working man,” and with all the BS talk of Fidel…..In honor of all my ancestors and the hard work my parents have endured in this country, I will be smoking my cigar, drinking a cold beer and reminiscing the hardship days of their hard work to give me the freedom I have today.
So…enjoy it…maybe the party we all want, or are anticipating, wont be as big but we CUBANS are finally one step closer to being free!
Pretty much says it all, no?
