Cry Me a River, Val

For Val, Cuba is a vale of tears to which he contributes more than his share. It took him three days to compose himself sufficiently to write about his trip to the White House, and then, when he finally did, Bush was mentioned only as Willy Chirino's emcee. Once upon a time Bush was a lot more to Val. In fact, Bush was Val's "mentor" as Rev. Wright was Obama's. It was from Bush that Val borrowed his "Pressure Cooker Theory." For Bush was the first to postulate that only by increasing the misery of the Cuban people can their misery end. It's an interesting formulation with many possible variants: such as, only by stoning a drunk man can you make him less stoned and so forth.

Did Val actually see his once-beloved POTUS? He boasts that he was "standing just 20 feet from the president." Imagine. Closer than that and they might have shared an elevator. I'm surprised that Val did not write that their two eyes met in a knowing glance for a fraction of a second which seemed like eternity. Really, it does appear that Val is distancing himself just a tad from the president. "Wet Foot/Dry Foot" couldn't separate them; but $4.00 oil and the mortgage crisis seem to have put some space between them. Maybe.

Just as likely it is Bush who's distancing himself from Val, not the other way around. What do I mean? Perhaps Val was relegated to the overflow room with the big-screen tv and a box of presidential Kleenex. That would explain the lack of "you are there" feel to Val's recollections, which, so far, are limited to expressing his emotion at hearing Willy Chirino sing "Nuestro Día Ya Viene Llegando" and at the playing of the Cuban National Anthem, in that order.

George W. Bush holds the distinction of having enslaved more Cubans than any living man except the undead one. For eight years he has upheld the "Wet Foot/Dry Foot"policy which returned more Cubans to slavery than the Dred Scott decision ever did. He enforced that odious policy longer than did Clinton. Since it is not a law (and, indeed, contravenes an existing law known as The Cuban Adjustment Act [1966]), Bush enforced it, like Clinton, through presidential fiat. Which means that in any of the last 3000 days he could have ended that travesty with a stroke of his pen and did not. Instead, thousands of helpless refugees were hunted like animals on the high seas, their boats capsized and their hapless occupants left to drown or worse. The "lucky ones" among these were returned to Castro's tender mercies. This is the man who "honored" Val with an invitation to the White House and whom Val "honored" by accepting it.

There is no photograph of President Bush with Val Prieto for him proudly to hang in his new kitchen. I guess you have to contribute $10,000 to get one of those or at least $10,000 worth of publicity. Val failed on both counts. But maybe he can buy a signed picture of Bush on eBay. They go for about $5.

Don't get me wrong men do cry, mine has when it matters, breaks my heart every time, but seems Val is always crying, a lot of his posts are about his sacrifice and the things that make him weep, were I his wife (thank God Iam not) I'd be disgusted by now.

What no picture with Bush..lol..I'm sure that made him cry too..lol

off boring topic

The power of Mat Drudge...Ya hillary quiere matar a Obama ,,, VP for her not a chance..in a million years

Hillary Brings Up Kennedy Assassination, Press Freaks Out
by Aaron Bruns
BRANDON, SD - Another example of the power of the Drudge Report today, as a NY Post story pointing out that Clinton brought up the assassination of Robert F Kennedy in 1968 during an editorial board meeting sent reporters traveling with Clinton into a frenzy.

Asked by South Dakota newspaper the Argus Leader why she didn’t buy the argument that the party was fracturing because of the prolonged contest, Clinton said “my husband didn’t wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June.”

“We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California,” she continued. “You know i just dont understand it.”

After the Post story was circulated to the press corps via blackberry and Drudge, the reporters here at Clinton’s town hall meeting abandoned any pretense of listening to the event, flocking around the first Clinton flak they could find for a response to the quote.

After a brief off the record defense of Clinton’s comments, Campaign spokesman Mo Elleithee gave reporters what they were looking for. “She was simply referencing her husband in 1992 and Bobby Kennedy in 1968 as historical examples of the nominating process going well into the summer,” he said. “Any reading into it beyond that would be inaccurate.”

The ‘reading into it’ they might be worried about is speculation that Clinton would deliberately bring up talk of assassination to raise fears that, as an African American candidate, Obama might face the same danger as Kennedy. Before his big win in Iowa, many African Americans in the South cited the danger of assassination as a reason not to support Obama.

But Clinton has made a similar “long primaries are fine” argument before — once with a more oblique reference to the Kennedy assassination. “If you look at successful presidential campaigns, my husband didn’t get the nomination until June of 1992. I remember, tragically, Senator Kennedy won California near the end of that process,” she said at a DC fundraiser on May 7th. “It has often gone on. And we have a lot to work out here. Because we have to figure out who would be the stronger candidate.”

UPDATE: After the uproar, Clinton came to the TV cameras to make a brief statement on her remarks.


“Earlier today, I was discussing the Democratic primary history, and in the course of that discussion mentioned the campaigns that both my husband and Senator Kennedy waged in California in June in 1992 and 1968. And I was referencing those to make the point that we have had nomination, primary contests that go into June. That’s an historic fact. “

“The Kennedys have been much on my mind in the last days because of Senator Kennedy, and I regret that if my referencing that moment of trauma for our entire nation and particularly for the Kennedy family was in any way offensive. i certainly had no intention of that whatsoever.”

“My view is that we have to look to the past and to our leaders who have inspired us and give us a lot to live up to. And I’m honored to hold Senator Kennedy’s seat in the United States Senate from the state of New York, And have the highest regard for the entire Kennedy family. Thanks.”

There's nothing wrong with crying whether it's done by men, women or babies. Tears are the balm that soothe the wounded soul. But when they flow like a waterfall at the drop of a pin then there must be something that underlies the tears besides emotion. Sometimes it is the pretense of emotion.

Who the hell named this guy "reviewer" of other blogs? What are his credentials? To be able to review the work of others, you have to be qualified and respected.
This guy is like Castro, he has named himself reviewer of other blogs because he is a megalomaniac like Fidel who thinks that what he says is always right.
In reality, he only "reviews" Babalu because he is obsessed with Val and Henry because they kicked him from their blog because he was so annoying.
No wonder he is afraid of posting his site statistics. Check it on Alexia and you'll see that they don't even know that this blog exists. :)

The explanation is very simple:
Val was not invited to the White House by Bush.
He was taken along by Ileana Ros, as all of us who went to Cuba Nostalgia saw him kissing up to her for that opportunity.

Val entro por la cocina de la casa blanca , fue registrado minusiosamente por el Servicio Secreto, despues lo pasaron a un cuarto para descontaminarlo y sacarle todas las bacterias , pulgas , parasitos que pudieran contaminar al Presidente, tuvo que llenar un formulario comprometiendose a defender a Bush en Bulabubabo blog y asi es señores como este señor logra entrar y SALIR por la puerta trasera de la Casa blanca.

Habló de CubaPosteriormente, en un discurso organizado por la influyente Fundación Cubanoamericana, afirmó hoy que, de ganar la Presidencia de Estados Unidos, permitirá los viajes familiares a Cuba y el envío de remesas, pero mantendrá el embargo económico.

“No hay mejores embajadores para la libertad que los cubanos y los cubanoamericanos, por eso voy a permitir los viajes familiares y el envío de remesas, para que puedan ayudar a padres, hermanos y tíos; para que el dinero estadounidense haga que el pueblo cubano sea menos dependiente del régimen” de la isla, dijo.

El senador afroamericano prometió ante más de 700 personas que uno de los primeros pasos hacia Cuba, si es elegido presidente en noviembre próximo, estará dirigido a la puesta en libertad de los presos políticos.

Para Obama, ya es ahora de superar las “promesas vacías de los políticos” y tener una nueva estrategia para lograr la libertad de la isla caribeña y la instauración de la democracia.

“Mi política hacia Cuba será dirigida por una sola palabra: libertad”, aseveró.

KillCastro said...

This is so the quintessential bipolar freak does not feel unloved I will give him a few minutes of my time , just for shits and giggles and have no other thing to do while I wait for a delivery person.

Hey Rubio (Get used to it I am not falling for that “persona” who indeed reflects your obsession with power , malicious power actually)

So let me quote a few of your precious psychotic comments of late.

“No son nadie” (referring to Killcastro Blog)

Which means that we must be somebody. Or is you Oriental Spanish THAT fucked up?
Because si NO SOMOS NADIE tenemos que ser alguien, no?

Y estoy de acuerdo que no pretendemos ser ALGUIEN. Hacemos lo que hacemos. No esperamos nada en cambio, ni recompensas ni fama aunque las oportunidades se han presentado. Peo no nos interesa. Nuestra misión es CUBA, tu sabes LA ISLA DE CUBA y los que viven en ella.

“A ese blog no va nadie”

Otra vez jodes el lenguaje pero es de esperar. Seems to be a trademark of yours.
Quizás te es inexplicable el por que de nuestro desinterés en los que nos visitan. No estamos escribiendo para ser controversiales o cambiarle la opinión a nadie (especialmente a algo tan insignificante como tu). Escribimos lo que sentimos y tenemos oportunidades de diseminar información directamente de Cuba que de otra manera nadie sabría.

Por ejemplo sabes que han habido amplias demostraciones en La Habana y Holguin de anti-KaSStristas en protesta de la estupidez acerca los teléfonos celulares?
“NO QUEREMOS TELÉFONOS, QUEREMOS VER A NUESTRA FAMILIA” leen las pancartas.


Pero, otra vez, si no va Nadie, que coño haces metido en el blog constantemente dejando comentarios que son inmediatamente eliminados, pero ese otro psicosis tuya la masoquista es compulsiva y TIENES que ir y ser humillado. Tienes la distinción de ser el único idiota que recibe ese tratamiento. Ni los insultos de Val Prieto fueron borrados, pero TU? Asere no hay nada que tu puedas aportar que sea de algún valor a los pocos que nos leen.

Y de paso tengo una pregunta…..
Si no va nadie a Killcastro y tu te pasas la vida ahí, eso significa que TU eres ese NADIE?

As far as traffic, I will tell you. We average 3,000 hits a week (mostly from Cuba and a lot of government agencies) and we are Okey with that, when we have a scoop, it jumps to 5,000. It is nothing but this was never about VISITS for us. Of course your deranged mind will think otherwise.

You seem to also be obsessed with traffic and comments (where does this anal compulsion come from? Any idea)
You must be a first class idiot when time and time again you keep comparing post replies at RCAB to those of the blog with 25 contributors.

Los sone duro… no me hacen caso

You were on crack on this one were you not?

I think that everyone must’ve had a giggle on this because it is such an incongruent statement that only that swage deposit you call brain can articulate. But Oh! I am trying to explain your obviously need for attention and rationalize your psychotic behavior LOL. Sorry I forgot I was addressing a barely coherent ward case.

Make up your mind freak, si no te hacemos caso que te hace pensar que nos importa un bledo lo que dices o no dices de nosotros.?

We will vote for Obama …

This has become an obsession with you uh Rubio. ? What the fuck do YOU care? Why even think about us, move on man get a life. What difference does it make “NO SOMOS NADA” You must have way too much time in your hands.

But just so you get that stick outta your ass… No we are NOT for Obama. In fact we have posted that it seems that the Bush administration IS pushing Cubans to vote for Obama (but I am sure your lack of intellect could not understand the subtlety of that statement) but as much as we want Cubans in the island to eat, and for Cubans here to travel there as they please and the fact that we greatly resent that Mr. Bush has decided who our family is or not… Cuba (even a free Cuba) in a world where the USA is capitulating to every psycho (people like you, ya know?) Who threatens us is not going to bring any peace here in the USA or Cuba, so fuck you, you are wrong,

Regardless whether Obama does away with the inhumanity of Bush’s (and BTW were we NOT Bushites just a few weeks ago? Man you need to up your Ritalin )
Obama is not getting OUR vote because of promises made to improve Cuban’s lifestyle at the expense of fucking up the USA. So get that stick outta your ass. NOONE who is clearly a bigot in disguise and has an agenda of destruction towards the USA whether he realizes it or not gets our vote.

Now, at some point you also accused us of not wanting to talk about McCain (Man , you ARE obsessed , is that homo thing kicking in?) … I have nothing good or bad to say about the guy and I doubt we will be voting for anyone who wants to maintain a status quo with Bush’s policies “The pressure Cooker” analogy only gives you cooked Cubans! So McCain is not a choice and to complete the quiniela neither is Hillary so there you are; now you may put some ointment in your bleeding ass.

You getting the gist here asshole? We REALLY could not care two shits about you cause you are un cero a la izquierda , a buffoon with a desire to be the center of attention and Mr. T has allowed you that stage, but we will not allow you that pleasure at KillCastro.

Oh, and BTW I still have your emails blasting Val Prieto when we first opened KillCastro and what was your beef there? That Prieto would not answer your 25 emails a day. Soon I found out Prieto was right as you began to dictate to us what should or not be posted at KC and demanding immediate action on your requests. You function with a blatant dictatorship mentality and ARE a clearly latent homo, jizzbag!


I would ask (if I thought you were a gentleman in any sense of the world) to stop coming to a blog where NADIE va and keep posting crap that will be deleted anyway. But of course you will not acquiesce that will be going against every single mental deficiency you parade day in and day out.

Look, deficient, look really good who the fucking impostors are, starting with yourself who have expressed the desire of HURRICANES SWEEPING CUBANS AWAY, as a means to end Castroism. And what about all your newly gained enemies, who are against of travel, remittances, and in favor of the dry foot wet foot and the pressure cooker -as you are, too, as people can read in your blog and comments all over. Sorry, now I recall that you're the only Cuban who didn't know what the dry foot wet foot was. We don't need your approval or anybody else. Actually, it's good that you don't agree with us, that would be a cause of shame.
Now go back to pick your little fights with the "famous" so you can be famous for being insulted by them.

KC and CB, you hit the nail right on the head. The guy needs atention, he craves it, he looves it. It does not matter if you are insulting him, he comes back because he needs that attention.
That is why he went to the Cuban Nostalgia only to come back and criticize Miami and the people living there. He hammers MAT for being divisive and then he says he does not like habaneros because of the way they talk.
One single reading of his comments will tell you he ia real authority on the Spanish language, and let's not forget his mastery of the English language.
This guy Fantomas is delusional, and if you happen to disagree with his delusions, he will insult you, demean you, and heap a barrage of vitriolic words on you and your family as if the words of a lunatic could mean anything to you. The best attitude towrds this aberration with a comdom head is to ignore him. He can not stand that and he wilts from lack of attention. That is why he hangs around here because he needs that attention MAT gives him every once in a while out of pity for the poor wretch.
Ignore him and let him stew in his own juices. That is the best treatment for this lunatic.

The fact that the girls in Oriente go NUTS for a guy with a Habanero accent eludes this twat.
The fact that girls from La Habana HATE the policemen they bring from Oriente is also something this seepage sack knows little about.

I should know I am 100% Habanero (and have the accent to prove it) and married a girl from Holguin who almost daily tells me she loves my “accent”

Must be something similar to the way a British accent makes New York women swoon.

I'm not even sure that Fantomas is a true Santiaguero, just as I am sure that many so called Habaneros, are really not so.

"Angel:

Vana, I'd suggest that you then use the singular instead of the plural form, as the instance that I quoted was not your first patronizing statement directed at Orientales in general, nevertheless, I accept your explanation or justification, although it contained no sign of regret, which is why it cannot be called an apology.

"...alas I was born and raised until I was 11 years old in Centro Habana, to be precise en Gervasio /Lagunas y San Lazaro, 2 blocks from El Malecon Habanero, I have pictures to prove it."

I never said that you were not Habanera, my statement was directed at those who claim to be from Metro-Havana proper, but are really from the other municipalities of Havana province which do not comprise the city itself.


"y que rayos sabes tu de eso angel

Fantomas, that's a very Puerto Rican expression you have chosen to use, I asked you once last year (on Babalu) what part of Santiago you were from and your answer was so generic that it led me to have doubts as to the veracity of your claim to being a Santiaguero.

Generic answer Fantomas, generic, it's common knowledge to most Orientales that are familiar with Santiago that "Clinica Los Angeles" is the preeminent neonatal and hospital facility in the city. Not good enough.

Where is the main library located?

What sport is practiced at a facility that's just one block West of the main library?

What's the most common place where many of the city's young people like to go to see and be seen by their young peers?

Which verbena is so well known, that just about everyone from Moncada & Los Hoyos neighborhoods flock to it during the carnavales?

Name the restaurant that's in Reparto Sueño near the Entranda de Vista Alegre?

Name the very famous hotel & night club that was in the carretera al aeropuerto?

Name the brand of municipal transit buses that were acquired by Cuba in the late 1960s to replace the old GM ones that serviced intra Santiago?

Name the brand of cars that were used to replace the old Volgas for the police and taxis in the late 1960s?

Name the location of the radio and TV transmitters (antennas)

What well known building was turned into a school & museum by the commies and what world known soft beverage brand had a bottling plant near it?

What's the name of the key (cayo) in Santiago Bay and what is the species of fish that loiters by its main ferry dock?

Name the club that was across the bay from the old refinery and name the refinery

Angel Garzón said...

More than three hours have elapsed since the proof of being a true Santiaguero questionnaire was posted by me for Fantomas (as per his request) to confirm the veracity of his claim. No answers have yet been provided by Fantomas, even though he has posted some comments on another post after the questionnaire was published.

IT IS OFFICIAL, Fantomas cannot answer any of my Stgo. queries because he IS NOT from Santiago de Cuba, Fantomas is a Puerto Rican that pretends to be Cuban, he knows that Orientales from La Campiña (guajiros) speak with a cadence that's similar to that of Puerto Rican peasants (jibaros.) One more label that can now be added to this Fantomas character. What say yee Fantomas?

P.S. For the sake of clarity and transparency, I must state that I have been married for almost thirty years to a Jersey Rican, born and raised in New Jersey, of Puerto Rican parents.
