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!!!??

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.

Victory for Life -- Court backs military on abortion coverage

Great news being reported on the Chicago Tribune. Surprisingly, a decision was handed down in favor of life. I find the quote facinating. These days, one could hardly believe such statement would come from a judge--a federal one of all things.
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that military medical benefits should cover abortions only when a mother's life is at risk.

The 3-0 ruling by a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals came in the case of a Navy sailor's wife whose fetus had a fatal birth defect. She had an abortion five months into her pregnancy.

She filed a lawsuit claiming an armed forces health plan owed her $3,000 for the procedure. The government argued that refusing to cover such services "furthers the government's interest in protecting human life in general and promoting respect for life."Tags: , , ,
