The Real Cuba, The Worst of the Worst

A reader, who cowardly remained annonymouse, asked if things where as terrible in Cuba as some say it is. Initially, I thought perhaps this reader was intelectually impaired, but then I realized this would not be fair to many out there, who are victims of the mainstream media.

To be fair, today we are going to address this question.
If things are so terrible in Cuba, why does the US prevent citizens such as myself from going there? I have trouble believing much of anything that comes out the mouth of George Bush and his cronies... If I could see with my own eyes that things are as terrible as you say in Cuba, maybe you would make me a believer. But you may be lying too.
The truth is there is little I can say first hand. I am a US citizen, and I have never been to Cuba. I never will, until Castro dies, but I can go to those who ARE in Cuba and live under Castro's so-called revolution each and every day. Pay attention Mr. "Freedom" and tell me if this makes you a believer. Check out and the many other web sites that display the truth about Castro's Cubal. The following are stories from today's home page of, a non-profit that published news reports from the island.
Violent eviction leads to near-riot
A forced eviction in Banes August 12 lead to a near-riot by neighborhood residents, who became riled up by police and Housing Authority officials' manhandling of the house's residents, including an older woman who suffered an ischemic attack and was left lying on the pavement.

Independent journalist receives death threat
Independent journalist Karel Castillo Pérez de Alejo, who is also a political activist, received a death threat this week from one of several men waiting for her outside her mother's me.

Well known doctor among those drowned trying to flee Cuba
One of 31 Cubans who drowned last week while trying to join his wife in the United States was a well-known doctor, Pablo Ruiz Porra, who died on his sixth attempt to flee the country.
Perhaps real live stories are not enough--allow me to invite you, my reader, to view the following documents.
The fact is that the Cuban people are suffering. Castro makes a mockery of Cuba's suffering with his offer of free medical care and doctors for New Orleans. The fact is, everyone knows that Cuba's so-called doctors are communist agitators and spies for Castro. If you want to visit Cuba, go ahead, but make sure to open your eyes, and see if you can get a tour through the political gulags, or the impovrished homes of the real Cuban people, who suffer from power outages, food shortages, and an all around miserable life.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
