  1. Hi everyone,
    I am a Cuban American, and proud at my heritage. I am thrilled that I cast my vote for Barack Hussein Obama on the very first day of early voting! I spoke to many Cuban Americans there and they were also very excited and thrilled to vote for Obama. We are so excited that finally, after 8 years of hell, we will finally be moving in a new direction, a brighter and far better direction that we were headed. Thank God, Freedom and Democracy do exist!
    God bless you all,
    Luis

  2. Yo Luis –
    I agree with your sentiment with regards to Democracy as being a form of government where you can “THROW THE BUMS OUT.”
    Would you – perhaps – agree with me that after 49 years and 10 moths – CUBA DESERVES THE SAME CHANCE?
    Just wondering. And waiting.

  3. Hi everyone,
    I am a Cuban American, and proud at my heritage. I am thrilled that I cast my vote for my fellow veteran Captain (Ret.) John McCain on the very first day of early voting! I spoke to many fellow veterans who were also very excited and thrilled to vote for the man that withstood torture while Bill Ayres bombed the same Pentagon that Osama Bin Laden sent his muslim America haters to destroy, we are also proud to vote against the man who never wore with 6the label U.S who Jane Fonda supports. We are so excited that again we have the opportunity with our votes, as we did with our sweat and blood, to protect America the greastest country in History from her enemies foreing and domestic, we will again be moving in the right direction, a brighter and far better direction than the one those who hate America want us to head to. Thank God, like in Midway, Freedom and Democracy will again be saved!

  4. Luismelito,
    You just made the worst political decision of you lifetime and I assure you that you’ll regret it big time in the future.
    I cannot comprehend Cuban-Americans voting for Barack Hussein Obama when we have the very painful 49 years experience that in 1959 a Marxist even thought he would not admit to it (pretty much like Barack Hussein Obama denies his ties to a Marxist-terrorist like Bill Ayers) took control of Cuba as he promised “CHANGE” and the rest is history.
    It is obvious to me that you have not learned that lesson; well you’re going to learn it now and it is going to hurt for the next 4 years.
    I don’t know how long have you have lived in America or if you were born here or came here very young. All I can say that I just feel pity for the utter stupidity you showed in your decision and then have the balls to come here to this blog to brag about it like it was such a great achievement.
    You should go back to live in Cuba and see what is 49 YEARS OF HELL then you would not post such a stupid comment on this blog.
    Don’t worry, the 8 years of hell that according to you Bush has brought to America will be nothing compared to what Barack Hussein Obama will bring the next 4.

  5. I think Luis is being sarcastic (Right Luis, you are just joking? a little bit of relajo?) to make a point – whatever it is, because no Cuban American in good standing, and in his or her right mind would ever vote for an individual (that we really don’t know too much about – that came out of no where, who was something called a community organizer) that will be the closest thing to a socialist Marxist Leninist president, one who will speak to our enemies, one who will open relations to a rouge entity like Cuba or Iran, and one that is associated with an enormous cadre of Castro sympathizers, yup that’s Obama and his administration all right.
    But then again, I don’t know, because my mom who lives in Miami (she will be voting for McCain) tells me that in Miami and Coral Gables (I love that place) there are a lot of come mierda Cubans in Miami who are going to vote for the “ONE”.
    I gather those who are going to vote for Obama in the Cuban camp are either these young Cubano resentido types who hate all things Cuban, who think they are hot shit because they went to college, and think they are Americanos, or these sketchy types who have recently come from Cuba, complain that BUSH doesn’t let them visit their family members on the island, and who still have the lingering effects of the spiritual sodomy they got all their lives in Cuba when they lived there. You know the type, the type of Cubans that live in Miami because they couldn’t wait to get the hell out of Cuba, but still hate America because they expect a handout at every instance and get into a hissy fit when the State or Fed doesn’t give in to them, the type that just want to mooch off the system. A far cry from our parents who came here and struggled and worked hard.
    Let’s just put it this way, any Cuban American who is still a Democrat (After JFK, after Carter and Mariel, after Clinton and Elian), and who votes on the Oba-munist ticket, is an asshole (a word I don’t like to use often) and they deserve every God damn miserable policy this supposedly Kenyan born Manchurian candidate will grace us with. Do you people know what it is to be “mau maued” ? Well, it’s a Kenyan word, and that’s what Obama is going to do to us as the Kenyans like Obama’s dad did to the British.
    Do me a favor fake Cuban Americans who want to vote for Obama, DON”T VOTE, and go back to Havana and stay there.

  6. Don’t you worry honey because if Barack Hussein Obama is elected and screws-up America (as we all know he’ll do BIG TIME), he won’t be able to blame George W. Bush for it anymore and then the American people are going to be in for a rude awakening pretty much like they did thirty years ago with Jimmy (the communist peanut farmer) Carter.

  7. “Let’s just put it this way, any Cuban American who is still a Democrat (After JFK, after Carter and Mariel, after Clinton and Elian), and who votes on the Oba-munist ticket, is an asshole”
    “Do me a favor fake Cuban Americans who want to vote for Obama, DON”T VOTE, and go back to Havana and stay there. “
    October,
    DITTO with these comments, you hit the Bull’s-Eye with them.

  8. Is that girl blogger in Havana the one that writes all those anti Castro things on her blog still like Obama?

  9. That’s right FreedomForCuba – with two democrat houses of congress, with perhaps a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, and a democrat President, there’s nobody left to blame. Finally the buck has to stop someplace. We will be stuck with a lot of laws and policies we don’t like, but if the economy fails to recover, Iraq goes down the toilet, Afghanistan goes down the toilet, and the U.S. is attacked again, there will be absolutely no doubt at all who is to blame.

  10. I gather those who are going to vote for Obama in the Cuban camp are either these young Cubano resentido types who hate all things Cuban, who think they are hot shit because they went to college, and think they are Americanos, or these sketchy types who have recently come from Cuba, complain that BUSH doesn’t let them visit their family members on the island, and who still have the lingering effects of the spiritual sodomy they got all their lives in Cuba when they lived there.
    O nameless one, please explain the psychology of spiritual sodomy and how I can attain it.
    Meanwhile, since your post shows such an awesome grasp of the social sciences, let me relate the thinking of my 81-yr-old aunt whose house was snatched by Fidel in ’61, and is, in her words, so tired of demagogues comparing Democrats to appeasers and Neville Chamberlain, and accusing them of being future Fidels that she’s voting for Obama, not because she KNOWS, as you seem to, that he’s an incompetent at best and a crypto-Soviet stooge at worst, but because, in her words, “ya yo estoy cansada de la mierda que mis ciudadanos cubanos hablan.”
    In the meantime, please send diagrams of spiritual sodomy to my email address, so I can learn the moves. It sounds like fun!

  11. Lazaro,
    That’s why I made my comments to honey although I think that Iraq might escape Barack Hussein Obama’s precipitous retreat because the Bush administration’s surge has been so successful at this point that might preempt a Barack Hussein Obama mistake in this area and the Iraqi government might be able to hang on even if American forces pull out.
    We’ll see because if Iran gets more involved after the American leave then Iraq is totally screwed and all bets are off.
    I’m more concerned about the volatile areas of the world like Iran threatening the state of Israel (that’s a HUGE ONE), the Middle East terrorists,Russia, China, North Korea, Hugo Chavez and company, etc or another scenario that we could not envision now.
    Barack Hussein Obama does not the values, vision, experience or integrity to deal with any of these scenarios.
    Not only that, I guarantee you that with a Democratic congress and Barack Hussein Obama in the White House there will be normalizations of relations with Cuba (to the dismay and insult to those Cuban-American Democrats that supported Obama in this campaign). This will be the biggest insult to us (even more than the Elian fiasco ever was) and trust me it’ll take place right on our noses as a slap to all of us.
    Plus the same Democrats that created the current economic crisis will be controlling the government even more than ever so God only knows the havoc they’ll created for all of us, plus they will and increase taxes through the roof and cut defense expending at the time that is more crucial to our country.
    Trust me America will be at it’s weakest (because of the current economic problems sponsored by Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd and Co.) with these Democrats in power and any scenario that we could not think off can take place because our enemies will be smelling the blood of a weak America and will go for the kill.
    Plus the people that surround and advice Barack Hussein Obama have all the qualifications to make a bad situation much worse and I’ll guarantee you that they will.
    GOD HELPS US ALL.

  12. thinwhiteduke,
    It’s not fun, you don’t want it, its harsh, there is no mental “astro glide” to ease the emotional pain –
    Spiritual sodomy is when the state, in trying to make you the “NEW MAN” in the name of CHANGE takes away everything you hold dear, takes away everything you own, takes away even what you think, what you say, or the ability to say it the way you want, it takes away your right to stay or to leave and in the end if you allow them – it takes your soul. You are foolish not to know what this is and in relation to socialism.
    As for your aunt, voting for Obama is not going to do anything poor old lady. I think you are a troll.

    Thin,
    October hit the nail right on the head with this comment.
    Maybe you don’t believe what October states here but, this is exactly what Fidel Castro has achieved in Cuba to this day and it will be what Barack Hussein Obama will try to (with the help of the MSM and a Democratic congress) implement in the USA out of all places.
    If you don’t believe me look what Biden, Obama and the MSM did to Joe the plumber the moment he had the audacity to stand-up to the “Messiah” and question his socialist ideas.
    Get ready for the next four years because if Obama is elected anyone who questions his policies will encounter the same wharf.
    If you think that George W. Bush has suppressed you liberties then you’ll see what’ll happen under an Obama presidency.
    You’re going to learn the lesson of your life that all your years in academia have not thought you, so get ready because when all is said and done you’ll have to eat your comments of today.

  14. has Bush abdicated yet, like Batista? Has Obama marched down from the mountains like Fidel? As bad as Obama can be, what we don’t have is 1959. At worst we’ll have another in a long line of mediocre American presidents. If you’re going to make facile historical parallels, you’ll need to know some history.
    Also: I’m still waiting for you and Anonymous Person to tell me how sodomy is bad for me.

  15. is Joe the Plumber without a job for opposing the Obama machine? have his children been sent to cut suger cane? Have his goods been confiscated? Has his property been nationalized? If not, don’t give me a damn lecture about what a Communist system looks like. This paranoid style doesn’t do the Cuban cause any good — not when you imitate your worst enemy. Don’t you think Fidel and Raul aren’t proud of reading your nonsense?
    So, if Obama turns out to be another mediocre president instead of the Fidelist of your dreams (I can almost taste your wish; it almost turns you ON that he can be a Fidelist), will you recant your nonsense?

  16. Thin,
    Barrack Hussein Obama will be a President with a filibuster-proof majority in both houses of Congress (no checks and balance for the first two years at least to contain his excesses) to impose his will on the American people and that will be as bad as if he took power by force (look at what Chavez has done in Venezuela so far without taking power by force).
    And I don’t want to hear as a reply from you the typical liberal litany about George W. Bush excesses when he had a full Congress because that’s horseshit.
    Come on please, make more sense in your statements, and make a credible argument on your part because honestly at this point you aren’t.

  17. Question: How many here think that some people may be already afraid to post their thoughts in this site because they could one day trace your IP and come for you in the middle of the night? I am sure some already feel that way.

    No thin,
    Fidel and Raul Castro are more elated to read your liberal nonsense instead as the think how much more you suit their purpose and help their agenda with your views.
    Raul and Fidel Castro know very well what I stand for and they both hate my views.
    Barack Hussein Obama does not need to do any of what you stated above (you should know better by now).
    The way that is done here in America is through character assassination by Obama’s attack dogs in the MSM.
    I thought that you were smart enough for someone in academia to understand this fact by now.
    My God, I have been over 30 years in America and learned this fact a long time ago as I have seen it done many times.

  19. FFC, he’s an academic. His brain cells are riddled with bullshit.
    George,
    I hope that my last reply to thin will suffice; unfortunately you make a very good point with your statement above.

  20. Thin,
    About the actual sodomy now that I described the spiritual part – in your case it will be a prostate massage OK?

  21. Thin,
    By bringing the spiritual sodomy into the topic of discussion I think that you left yourself opened for October’s reply.

  22. Luismelito,
    Congratulations! As a Cuban-American I’m sure you’re very thankful to be living in a free Democratic society that allows you the right to suffrage. Perhaps, you recognize the value of casting your ballot even more, considering that you (or perhaps your parents) must have sacrificed a great deal when they left Cuba in search of freedom. By the way,
    I’m not bothered that you are “thrilled” to have voted for “Barack Hussein Obama.” Should he be elected president please make sure you drop me a line, in a year of so, to “brag” some more.
    thinwhiteduke,
    The biggest commodity we have in the United States is IGNORANCE.

  23. Barrack Hussein Obama will be a President with a filibuster-proof majority in both houses of Congress (no checks and balance for the first two years at least to contain his excesses) to impose his will on the American people and that will be as bad as if he took power by force (look at what Chavez has done in Venezuela so far without taking power by force).
    You really have no idea how our constitutional system works. Hoover had a filibuster-proof majority in Congress; Carter had a filibuster-proof majority in Congress (and Congress DETESTED the inept Carter). If you really think that a 60+ majority is equivalent to Chavez-style authoritarian gangsterism, then you need to take a social studies class again. An electoral defeat for the GOP does not represent a devolution into totalitarianism. I mean, can you look me in the eye and tell me that there’s no difference?!
    And, for the last time, I ain’t a liberal: I don’t believe in big government, period. I’ve been very critical of Obama, past and present, and will likely vote Green if I vote for a prez candidate at all. But, no matter how much fun this site provides, I can’t get away with reading alarmist nonsense, especially when I distinctly remember this line peddled in 1992 when Clinton the closet Republican won.
    By the way, F4C and Anonymous One, I can promise you with all my heart that you’ll enjoy sodomy a lot more than an Obama presidency. I’m more than willing to have you guys explain how it’s supposed to work too. I’ll be at La Carreta on 87th Avenue.

  24. Thin, dude, there are plenty of things to fear. The first thing is the language of class war already being perpetrated. Secondly, you don’t believe the Dems will push for the Fairness Doctrine the first chance they get? You see, liberals don’t produce good talk radio and their news (MSNBC) also is at the bottom of the ratings. Since they can’t win in direct competition, then they go about changing the rules. And thin, Jimmy Carter did enough damage in his short time in office, we don’t need to keep experimenting. And this is coming from someone who voted for Clinton twice – so don’t accuse us all of being knee-jerk finger-pointers. I point my finger at Barrack Hussein Obama because, well, if it talks like a duck…you get the picture. Obama is a Marxist, you know it – we all know it.

  25. Thin,
    Cangrejero de Caibarien gave you a very strong point that I fully agree with it and I’ll use it as a reply to your previous post.
    I’m sure that you’ll choose to ignore Cangrejero’s valid points because you’re so wrapped-up in you academic know it all that you fail to see the point made by him.
    I also see that you have a thin skin too, hey that’s your problem not ours.

  26. We’ll see about the Fairness Doctrine, a contemptible thing and a chilling effect on free
    speech.
    Hey, if I was thin-skinned, my dear, I wouldn’t keep visiting the site and increasing your hit counts, no?
    If you think it’s “academic” to site facts readily available to anyone with a passing knowledge of Wikipedia — or a World Book encyclopedia — then I accept the charge, and you can make historical parallels that a sixth grade social studies history teacher would dismiss. Get back to me when Bush abdicates on New Year’s Eve, Obama comes down from Mt. Chicago, and, in two years, declares himself a Communist and shuts down this site.

  27. Thin,
    Barack and his cohorts will try to implement their brand of Marxism on the American people in a way that has never been done before and not in they way that you or I might expect.
    They know that if they want to succeed in their efforts they must use a new approach never done before in history in order to confuse the American people with their true intentions.
    That they’ll succeed it will be another story and become part of the history books.
    So far Obama with the help of the MSM has been able to masquerade his true intentions and the true individual that he is to the American people. When he takes that mask I suspect that even you will not be happy about it.
    Wait until he’s in charge of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with a filibuster-proof Congress and he unveils and implements the true agenda (that cannot be stopped by the Republicans) he has for America. I suspect that even you will be in for the surprise of your life.
    You brag so much shit about academia in this country (as you think you’re above everyone else because you don’t) because the truth and the fact of the matter is (and I experienced it in my college days) that many of our colleges and universities since the 1960s are full of teachers (whether they teach English or History or the Social Sciences) with a lefty/liberal agenda and unfortunately promoting these values into their classrooms.
    The results of these 40+ years of efforts have finally succeeded, as you can see today Barack Hussein Obama enjoys the largest group of support among the colleges/universities students.
    So from my part as you keep pointing to academia let me tell you that I don’t have much respect for many of that academia that you so highly tout as I seen how full of shit they are.

  28. but, my dear, YOU’RE the one who keeps referring to “academia.” I’m referring to “books” and “history.” I have never cited “academia” as an authority. What are you so insecure about? Are you trying to fit me into your Silent Majority vs Eastern Intellectual Establishment dichotomy?

  29. “You brag so much about academia in this country,” you write. Marvelous! Cite one instance in the last 10 months of the Thin White Duke referring to “academia.” Do you count “books” as “academia”? Do you know what they are?

  30. Thin,
    I’m not insecure about anything and don’t twist my words, you know what you have posted on this blog.
    By the way history books are written by the victors and many times don’t tell the truth of what really happened.
    Those who have witnessed history know the truth.

  31. Thanks George, you just shot several birds with one stone.
    I have a friend that works for F.I.U. and tells me that F.I.U. today has become a hotbed for lefty and Obama support among the teacher staff.
    So it explains Thin’s view of America and the world very clearly on his posts by replying that he’s part of that univerty staff.
    Somehow I ‘m not surprised and further reinforces my views about academia today.
    I love it when people trip over their own bullshit act.
