They're not singing 'feliz anything' in Venezuela this Christmas

(My new American Thinker post)

Let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas.   

Please take a moment and think about Venezuela, where "Feliz Navidad" is not what they are singing.   

The latest nonsense from the Maduro government is sick and that's saying a lot about a pretty sick regime. This is a summary:

You better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout, let us tell you why: Santa Claus is coming to Caracas, and this year he’ll be bringing toys to all the pro-regime boys and girls -- and jailing those who get in his way.
Striking an almost comically Orwellian posture of Saint Nick meets Robin Hood, last week Venezuela’s consumer “protection” agency seized several million toys that will, ostensibly, be redistributed to the poor. 
The trinkets were confiscated from a toy distributor that had purportedly “committed fraud” against the country by selling the goods at unlawfully high mark-ups. Two of the company’s executives were arrested in the toy-taking. Agency officials say the toys will be sold at below-market prices. 
They haven’t said who will get to purchase the discounted dolls, but presumably being a supporter of President Maduro’s United Socialist Party won’t hurt one’s chances.

Yes, Santa is now a tool of the state and December 25th is another day to reward those who support the regime. Wonder what they are thinking about all of this at the North Pole? Who knew that Santa's red outfit was a statement of his socialist beliefs?    
What about the other children? Well, they won't get any gifts, unless their parents can go to the black market or cross the Colombia border and buy something.

This is what Chavez' revolution has brought to a beautiful country.    

It reminds me of how the communists in Cuba played dirty tricks with children. The teacher would tell a young student to ask for candy. Ask the revolution and the teacher would hand the young person a candy bar. Ask God and nothing would come down from heaven.

Yes, that's what communists do. Wonder if anyone told Bernie Sanders that true story?

The Obama legacy: First it was the Cubans and now the Israelis

(My new Babalu post)
We would rather be talking about Nochebuena and the holidays. However, the Obama administration pulled an ugly one today, a very ugly one.
Sadly, it’s the Obama way. Yesterday Cuba and today Israel!
First, a little history. In 2012, President Obama ran for reelection on false premises. He took a hard line in public against the Castro dictatorship. In fact, he was negotiating with Cuba to put a US Embassy in the island.
I believe that Mr. Obama would have lost Florida if Cubans had known what he was doing in secret with the Castro dictatorship. After all, President Obama carried the state by 75,000 votes out of 8,5 million!
To date, the Cuba deal has been nothing but a legacy item. In other words, Cubans have no hope and nothing has changed.
Today, President Obama threw Israel under the bus at the United Nations: US abstains in key Israel vote, clearing way for condemnation of settlements.
Wonder how all of those Jewish voters in New York City and the US feel about that? Senator Schumer, the incoming US Senate Minority Leader, did not like it either, as we see in this tweet.
How much more can harm can this man do? He’s got 30 days left!

How to say Merry Christmas to a Democrat

Let me be honest. I don't know who created this. Nevertheless, it is rather funny. This is what you need to write on the "winter celebration" card that you plan to mail to your Democrat friends:
"Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great.

Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere, and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes.

By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms.

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal.

It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting.

It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.

This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher."
Of course, it's a simple Merry Christmas for all of your Republican friends!
