Sunday in Caracas: 'Cubans go home'

(My new American Thinker post)


The word from Caracas is that the public is furious with the government crackdown and Cuban influence. 

A legislator has called on citizens to march today and tell the Cubans to go home.  (See the picture from our Babalu friends)

The irritation with Cuban influence has exploded.  There are elite Cuban troops in Cuba and agents in government agencies.   

The relationship between Cuba and Venezuela goes back to Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.  It started out as ideological love but it is now subsidizing Cuba with cheap oil and letting Havana run the day to day affairs of Venezuela.   Most people are furious with the "oil subsidy" and ask why?

So yes we support those Venezuelans marching today and tell "Cubans to go home."  We love Cubans but not the ones who've invaded Venezuela and infiltrated the government.

Stand with our friends in Caracas:  "Raul Castro take your Cubans back to Cuba"

Are we watching the 2014 version of 'Malaise'?

(My new American Thinker post)


Can you remember the last time that you were so depressed about politics?  I mean the last time that the front pages were so bad?

What about the last time that you did not want to watch the evening news?

I have to go back to 1980, or the year of hostages in Iran, high gasoline prices, a general state of "malaise" in the country and watching the world just make President Carter look so bad.

Watergate was bad but no one around the world had a doubt that President Nixon was competent and in charge of our foreign policy.   

Iraq 2006 was very tough too but we knew that President Bush could take the heat.

Today's landscape reminds me of the Carter years because we just don't think that the guy in charge is up to the task!   The 39% Gallup is evidence of that! 

His problems are starting to scare Democrats, as a story in The NY Times points out!   They are really scared, especially if you are running in a competitive district.  In other words, any Democrat who won with less than 55% of the vote has a lot to worry about.

The 41% at the WSJ/NBC  poll means that more and more Democrats plan to spend September and October with everyone but President Obama.

It is depressing to read the news.  It's sad to see our president look so weak, and foolish, on the world stage.   Fair, or unfair, the world does not see President Obama as a strong leader.

Back home, the young have abandoned ObamaCare, according to Dana Milbank.  Hispanics are saying "adios" or "no gracias" and not signing up either.   Aren't these two of the 3 groups who made his election and reelection possible?

Things are so bad that the president of the US is telling people to dump cable TV and cell phones to purchase health insurance.  This is embarassing!

So forgive me if I look ahead to opening day when the Phillies play the Rangers.  It should be a great pitching duel.  Yu Darvish and Cliff Lee, who has not pitched here since game 5 of the 2010 World Series. 

We need something to take our minds off of these very depressing front page stories.

The Cowboys need to rebuild fan support


The NFL draft is a few weeks away and the Cowboys need help.  

Dallas needs players like any other team in the draft.   However, they also need to recreate fan interest.  In other words, fans are sick and tired of 8-8 seasons.   Mr Jones and the Cowboys need to prove to the fans that they are serious about getting back on a winning streak.

We spoke about this and other local stories with Dave Michaels:
