Communism Reruns: Marxist Oppression Advances in Bolivia

As I was telling a friend, why is it that Latin countries seem to never learn the lessons of the past. This time, the world cannot say they did not know what Communism is all about--repression.

DeepKeel posted on the move by Bolivia's new president to control the media.
Marxism is on the rebound around the world and especially in Latin America. Per the Marxist Operating Manual the first thing to do after winning an election is to use the tools of power to ensure communist rule forever. Control over the media is a crucial element of this, and the new marxist government of Bolivia is moving quickly to take charge of the media:

The Washington Times is covering the story.
Bolivia's new government has proposed legislation tightening regulations on the press, prompting fears of censorship among government critics and journalists.

Representatives of the ruling Movement to Socialism (MAS) maintain that the measures would affect only television and other electronic content considered "harmful to society."

"Control of the media has been a stated objective of Evo Morales," said a TV news executive, who asked not to be identified.

Members of Bolivia's leading press associations also fear that the government will use the measures to manipulate news coverage.

Some critics compare the proposed legislation to the Law of Social Responsibility in Radio and Television that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez enacted in his country a year ago.
Who is going to do something about this clear and present danger to the human rights of Latin America? What can be done? It seems these days have served to remind us all that election does not a free nation make.

If you are wondering why you should care, besides humanitarian and compasionate reasons, ask yourself where you think Bolivians will run to when things start going bad in Bolivia? United States of America, of course, land of opportunity and liberty for all. This wave of communism is only going to worsen the illegal immigration problem of our country.

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.

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…
