Time for Cuba’s communists to pay our parents back

Image result for cuba confiscated property images
In the interest of full disclosure, our family lost a home that was under construction.  The house was never built, but we had chosen the location.  I still remember my uncle, an architect, talking to my mother about the location of the windows.  He was advising her to take advantage of the breeze that always flowed in Cuba.
My parents have no interest in claiming the ground.  They were just happy that the three of us got to grow up in freedom.
Many of my friends did lose their properties and got no compensation for them.
I know a Cuban woman whose family ranch was confiscated by soldiers who showed up and threw the family from the grounds at gunpoint.  Sadly, the ranch had been in the family for a century and raised cattle for domestic beef consumption.  My guess is that the cows are dead and the place is another unproductive piece of Cuban land.
It gives me pleasure, and a sense of justice, that some people are going to court to challenge the communist regime.  I’ve talked to some of them, and they’re all doing it for their parents, who worked so hard to build those businesses.  It’s like justice for “mami y papi,” and I understand that fully.
This is from Fergus Hodgson:
Nearly 60 years have passed since the confiscations began, but the damages are easily identifiable for tens of thousands of Cuban exiles and their descendants. 
The Castro regime also carried out the mass theft in a brazenly public manner, so there is no dispute over its occurrence and the amount of property affected.
In the short run, the confiscation was done to exploit the nonsense that all of the property-owners were part of the CIA.  In the long run, it was another communist failure because the factories and ranches had no one to run them.
So let justice happen.  I don’t personally care for any money from the communists.  I just want them to recognize the injustice of stealing property and accusing our parents of something they were not.
As my late father once said, “we create jobs and made Cuba prosperous.  What did the communists do?”  They didn’t create real jobs or make the island prosperous.

Not the party that Joe grew up in

Image result for joe biden cartoons
How crazy left obsessed with skin color are the Democrats?  The answer is “very.”  Just ask former VP Joe Biden, who was forced to say in a debate that he is not a racist.
On Thursday night, Senator Kamala Harris dropped the hammer on Biden, who looked totally startled: 
Harris told Biden that she didn’t believe he was a “racist,” but considered his recent comments about being able to work with segregationist senators early in his career “hurtful.”
“You worked with them to oppose busing,” Harris then said, referring to his efforts to limit federal orders for school desegregation by busing. 
In an emotional moment, she then told her own story of being bused as a little girl in California.
It was good politics, specially in front of that audience.  However, I am not sure that it will work in on the road to the nomination.  Does any serious person out there, left or right, think that Joe Biden is a racist because he worked with other Senators?
What it tells me is just how focused on race this party has become.  Again, this focus on race and gender works very well in that debate but I don’t see it benefiting the party down the road.
My guess is that Biden went home last night and said to Mrs. Biden that they are calling him a racist for working with other senators.  I’m sure that his wife replied that this is not the party that they both knew.  It is not!

A bad night for the unborn and legal immigration

It was about what I expected — a bunch of candidates in low single digits trying to survive to the next debate.  What I didn’t expect is how silly these candidates are, from abortion for “trans people” to the immediate citizenship of dreamers or trying to speak Spanish when they can’t.
After the debate, I concluded two things:
1) This is a party hostile to the unborn.  They will defend abortion at any point of the pregnancy.   My guess is that the Trump campaign will remind them of that in the general election; and,
2) The Democrats have forgotten that most of us came here legally and we appreciate the rule of law.
I cannot believe that no one stood up for legal immigration or the right of a sovereign nation to deport people who defy court notices.   It was like all of these candidates read the same ideas book and told us the same thing one by one.
I finally found something that describes my feelings over at Isues and Insights.  They call it “Democrats’ Cirque De Absurdite“.
Maybe “Ship of fools” would be a good headline but I think that someone made a movie with that name.
Wonder if # 2 will be any better?  Don’t bet on it!

Trump and the Judiciary

Image result for supreme court images
My guess is that we will someday remember President Trump for many things, from the tweets to “fake news.”   His biggest contribution does not get a lot of tweets or news stories.  I’m talking about the judiciary as Senator Mike Braun just said:  
On the circuit court level, President Trump has appointed nearly one-third of the judges on the Fifth, Seventh, and Eighth Circuits. Additionally, the infamous liberal Ninth Circuit is slowly returning to sanity. President Trump has nominated enough judges that almost half of that court will faithfully interpret the Constitution.
In terms of district courts, the Senate has approved 82 district judges — including 29 since I’ve taken office. I’m incredibly proud to have supported the confirmation of fellow Hoosier Holly A. Brady from Fort Wayne to serve as a United States district judge for the Northern District of Indiana.
In a second term, President Trump will go further and fill more positions.
It’s a wonderful development for those of us who have been looking forward to a president who would carry out such a promise to put conservative names on the bench.
We will see Trump close the circle if, or when, he makes another appointment to the Supreme Court.

Mayor Pete’s virtue-signaling on race riles South Bend’s police

Maybe this is also what happens when everyone in your party panders about race.
Yes, Mayor Pete is in trouble, as we see in these reports:
The South Bend, Indiana police union is accusing the city’s mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg of making decisions on an officer-involved fatal shooting “solely for his political gain.”
The charge from the South Bend Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #36 comes as Buttigieg — who’s soared from a long-shot to a top-tier contender for the Democratic nomination — is facing the first serious test of his presidential campaign.  The union spoke out on Monday night after Buttigieg supported a call for a special prosecutor to investigate the fatal shooting June 16 of a black man by a white police officer.  Their move also comes after Buttigieg said he would contact the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to request an independent investigation.
In a blistering statement on Monday night, the union claimed that “Mayor Buttigieg’s focus on this incident is solely for his political gain and not the health of the city he serves.”
“Mayor Buttigieg’s comments have already and will continue to have a detrimental effect on local law enforcement offices and law enforcement officers nationwide. Mayor Buttigieg’s comments and actions are driving a wedge between law enforcement officers and the community they took an oath to serve.”
All politics is local, isn’t it?
Mayor Pete is caught between his police officers and the mobs that assume that a white policeman is racist if the victim is black.
Mayor Pete should have supported the police chief and ordered him to conduct an internal investigation to determine what had happened.  Instead, Mayor Pete stabbed his police officers by jumping on the bandwagon that this is a civil rights issue.
Yes, a white police officer killed a black man.  That does not mean that racism was part of the result.
Unfortunately, so many Democrats are hostage to the narrative of race and let the mobs set the conversation.
I am not sure if this incident will hurt his presidential campaign.  What it does is prove that he is another Democrat who has to see everything in terms of race.

A few thoughts about the "Cuban danzon"


Would you like to see our parents jump and start dancing?

Play a "danzon"!

There is something magical about the beat and the romantic overtones. I can certainly understand why people love it so much.

I certainly do.

The story of the "danzon" goes like this:
"Danzón has been called the official dance of Cuba, and evolved from the French-Haitian Contradance, brought to Cuba by Haitians fleeing the revolution of the late 1700s.

Danzón is also widely popular in Mexico's Gulf Coast. "

Whatever happened to Bob Lind?

Bob Lind wrote "Elusive Butterfly", one of the greatest songs of the 1960's.

And then he did not record any other hits!

I understand from his website that his songs were recorded by other artists. Frankly, I am not familiar with them.

Whatever happened to Bob Lind? Is he the all time "one hit wonder"?

Elusive Butterfly
(written by Bob Lind)

You might wake up some mornin'
To the sound of something moving
past your window in the wind
And if you're quick enough to rise
You'll catch a fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow
Out on the new horizon
You may see the floating motion of a distant pair of wings
And if the sleep has left your ears
You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow
Don't be concerned,
it will not harm you
It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love
You might have heard my footsteps
Echo softly in the distance through the canyons of your mind
I might have even called your name
As I ran searching after something to believe in
You might have seen me runnin'
Through the long-abandoned
ruins of the dreams you left behind
If you remember something there
That glided past you followed close by heavy breathin'
Don't be concerned, it will not harm you
It's only me pursuing somethin'
I'm not sure of
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

Across my dreams with nets of wonder

I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love"


Pretty good song!

But is anyone listening?

Image result for democrats images
The Democrats want to delete our college loans, support reparations for every victim group, and will reinstate the Iran nuclear deal if elected.  And there is more, but let’s go with that for now!   
The real question is whether anyone is listening or following the race?  On one hand, many of us are talking about it, but what about Democrats?  
This is a fascinating report:   
Only 22% of Democrats registered to vote say they know a lot about the candidates’ positions, while 62% say they know a little. 
And only 35% say they’re paying close attention to the campaign, with almost two-thirds saying they’re paying some or no attention.
The report makes another interesting point:   
The Democratic field is enormous and unprecedentedly diverse. It features several women, multiple candidates of African and Asian descent, one Latino and a gay man, Buttigieg, who at age 37 is less than half as old as the front-runner, Biden.
But majorities of Democrats say those characteristics make no difference to their level of enthusiasm about a presidential candidate. 
Four in 10 Democratic voters said they would be more excited about voting for a woman for president, and 36% said the same of a younger candidate. 
Only about a quarter were more excited at the idea of supporting a candidate who is black or Latino, while roughly 2 in 10 said they’d be more excited to support an Asian candidate or lesbian, gay or bisexual candidate.
Sorry Mayor Pete!   
Am I the only one surprised to read that Democrats are not excited about their choices or pent up about identity politics?  
Have we not been hearing that the Trump presidency has driven enthusiasm to an all time high?
Let me suggest a question for debate:   Ladies and gentlemen, all of you have been attacking President Trump 24/7 for this or that — are you surprised that only 35% of Democrats are paying attention?  Can you comment please?
My guess is that most candidates will answer by saying that it’s too early and it takes time to make a name.   I understand that point, but maybe it’s that the candidates are not turning on anyone.

The race card against their own?

Image result for joe biden cartoons
We’ve watched what’s happened to former VP Biden this past week.  In short, he said that he once worked with Southern Democrats to get things done and now some in the party want him to apologize.
VP Biden is right:  Apologize for what?  Working with other Senators?  Biden does not get to pick who goes to the U.S. Senate.  He does have to work with them.
After all, didn’t Biden work with the late Senator Ted Kennedy?  Is anyone calling on Biden to apologize for Kennedy’s treatment of women or President Clinton’s “bimbo erruptions” operation?
Biden’s week tells us a lot about the current state of the party, as we saw in these comments from other Democrats via the New York Post:    
Former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel, one of just two Democratic candidates who skipped the South Carolina Democratic convention, lambasted Biden as “unchanging, unapologetic, unaware” for Biden’s recent comments praising his own work with segregationist Senate Democrats in the 1970s.
Gravel tweeted that the former vice president “is a disaster waiting to happen. If you are serious about beating Trump, you need to be serious about beating Joe and giving us a serious progressive for the White House.”
Meanwhile, in Columbia, SC, candidates tried to steer the conversation around the front-runner.
California Sen. Kamala Harris entered the convention with a drum line playing as she rode down an elevator. She attacked Trump for everything from his tax and trade policies to an alleged lack of civil rights protections for marginalized Americans. She said Trump’s economic proposals help the rich and hurt farmers.
“We need somebody on our stage, when it comes to that general election, who knows how to recognize a rap sheet when they see it and prosecute the case,” said Harris, a former prosecutor.
Harris added that Democrats shouldn’t “turn back the clock” and instead “start the next chapter,” a veiled swipe at Biden.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren pitched her progressive policies as an agenda that can draw both Democratic and Republican votes.
Poor Joe.  The Democrats have gone left on him and there is nothing that he can do about it.
The left is now playing the race card on Mr. Biden and simply calling him a racist because he sat down to do business with men who represented other voters.  Let Biden get a taste of what we’ve had to deal with this for many years.

The Critters were young guys from New Jersey.

Like many youngsters, they played rock in their garage and dreamed of a recording contract.

Eventually, their persistence was rewarded. They got a contract and recorded a couple of the nicest pop tunes ever.

The group had a wonderful sound.    Here is John Sebastian's "Younger girl" and "Mr. Diengly sad", their second best seller!

Trump is a master at setting up traps for Democrats

A few days ago, President Trump tweeted about rounding up illegal aliens and deporting them.  It provoked a reaction, to say the least.  It caught me by surprise, especially how vague the message was — i.e., are you talking about deporting 11 million people?
After thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that President Trump was focusing on two groups of illegal aliens: criminal elements hiding in sanctuary cities and those who are not obeying deportation notices.
Now we see media reports that the raids begin on Sunday:
Immigration agents will target Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, and San Francisco this weekend, sources from congressional offices and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Miami Herald.
Earlier this week, a Trump administration official confirmed that ICE will specifically target for deportation as many as 1 million people “who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges yet remain at large in the country.”
So ICE will pick up people who choose to disobey a court order?
The Democrats, who choose to, will now have to defend people in the country who don’t obey court orders.  I wonder how that’s going to play with the people in their districts who have to obey court order?
Also, these arrests will take place in “sanctuary cities.”  Are the Democrats going to criticize federal agents arresting people violating the law?
It’s a good move in defense of the rule of law.  It’s a brilliant move in continuing to define the Democrats as pro–illegal immigration, in support of sanctuary cities, and calling out ICE agents doing their jobs.
Again, I wonder what Democrat presidential candidate will take the bait and go right into the trap.  Probably all of them!

‘La cola’ or the bitter legacy of communism in Cuba


Related image

Many years ago, my mother used to say “me voy a la cola” or loosely translated to “I am going to stand in line.”  Back then, they were ration lines from “a” to “z.”  My mother carried “una tarjeta” or a ration card where the merchant would mark how many ounces of this or that she got this week.
Not much has changed, as we see in this report by the Wall Street Journal:
Pushed by the implosion of top ally Venezuela and sanctions imposed by the Trump administration, Cuba has driven into an economic ditch. The government has tightened state rations. Residents stand in lines for hours to buy scarce basic goods such as eggs, flour and chicken.
The lines are still here.  What’s also here are the excuses.
Back then, it was “Yankee imperialismo” choking the revolution.  We were told that sacrifice made the new “socialist man or woman”.
I recall a story of a neighbor kid who got chewing gum from his family in the U.S.  They put the strip inside a letter and this friend was walking around telling everyone that he was chewing “chicle americano,” the slang for such a thing.
Another memory is the lady down the street who was boasting about drinking Alka Seltzer — another family member in the U.S. had put it inside a birthday card.
The lines are part of Cuba, again.  The excuses always start with President Trump and the U.S. embargo.  What’s new?
Yes, it’s true that the situation in Venezuela has impacted Cuba just like the collapse of the USSR in the 1990s.
However, the real problem is that the communists took over an island that did not have ration lines or where I remember walking down to the corner story and buying that famous “chicle americano.”
No more!  Communism turned this prosperous little island into an economy that requires dependency on someone, from Moscow to Caracas.
As my mother always reacts when I call her and read articles like the aforementioned one from the WSJ.  She responds:  “La misma (expletive deleted) de siempre” — the same as always.

June 22, 1941 Hitler’s Germany invaded Stalin’s Russia



We remember Pete “Pistol” Maravich (1947-88)


2adccfd76025d31c1bab97c89d8ee818
Pete Maravich was born in Alquippa, Pennsylvania, on this day in 1947.    He was born in a basketball family and accomplished so much on the court.
It’s fair to say that Pete was a better college than NBA player.   
Pete died suddenly in 1988 at 41 during a pick up game.   It was a shock, a real shock.

Biden is weak and the left knows it

Image result for vp biden cartoons
Former VP Joe Biden is finding out, if he didn’t know already, that what we saw in California’s Democrat state convention is what will greet him in Milwaukee.  The party’s energy and fundraising was in full display, as Norman Solomon wrote:  
Joe Biden’s glaring absence from the California Democratic Party convention has thrown a national spotlight on his eagerness to detour around the party’s progressive base. While dodging an overt clash for now, Biden is on a collision course with grassroots Democrats across the country who are learning more about his actual record and don’t like it.
Inside the statewide convention in San Francisco over the weekend, I spoke with hundreds of delegates about Biden while leafletting with information on his record. I was struck by the frequent intensity of distrust and even animosity; within seconds, after glancing at his name and photo at the top of the flyer, many delegates launched into some form of denunciation.
I often heard delegates bring up shameful milestones in Biden’s political history—especially his opposition to busing for school desegregation, treatment of Anita Hill in the Clarence Thomas hearings, leading role in passage of the 1994 crime bill, career-long services to corporate elites, and powerful support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Can  Biden really make the detour and avoid the left on his way to Milwaukee?  The answer is no, because the left will greet him in Milwaukee and demand this and that.
We already saw Biden flip on the Hyde Amendment.  His comments about working with “segregationists” were greeted with the same disdain as a Robert E. Lee statue.  
So when will he flip on reparations?  I can’t see it but I didn’t see the flip on Hyde coming.
Former VP Biden is weak and California Democrats know it.  They will push and push and make the “moderate” totally unelectable.
