Castro is targeting Venezuela's Cuban immigrant farmers

It's like a bad nightmare that keeps coming back. I grew up with stories from my Grandfather of the sugarcane fields. My "abuelo" had his own sugarcane plant in the back yard of his Hialeah home, and every time we visited (about once a year during childhood) we would beg him to go out back and chop down a piece for our own enjoyment. I still love chewing on the sweet sugarcane wedges whenever I get a chance. I believe Sedanos sells the small bags of freshly cut sugarcane, as well as a ice-cold glass of "guarapa".

How many more people will die in Venezuela from the poverty and famine this bastard is causing. How much longer will America look the other way, while castro exports his death-sentence socialism throughout South America? How many more have to die!!!??

Mora reports at

After fleeing castro in the 1960s for the then-undeveloped farmlands of remote parts of Venezuela, my farmer [Daniel] now sees castro coming right back for him and his productive and beautiful sugar lands. Make no mistake, castro continues to harbor dreams of retaking dominance in the sugar industry he already drove into the ground in Cuba. That's why he's looking further afield to Venezuela. He will do the exact same thing to Venezuela's sugar fields as he did to Cuba's.

It's not well known but castro has taken over every key office of the Venezuelan agricultural office. And castro's special target is Cuban immigrants who made this land in Venezuela flourish.

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…

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 …
