The Rise and Fall of the United States: The Final Chapter?

The greatest charlatan in the history of American politics stands posed on the threshhold of the White House. Between Barack Obama and the end of American democracy stand Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Hillary is as inexperienced and nearly as beholden to left-wing interests as Obama and she carries the worst imaginable baggage in the world (Bill). Still, she is so venal that it is doubtful she would ever topple the system that nurtured her. She would leave the presidency discredited, as did her husband; but the stronger for having survived her calamitous tenure. If Obama is elected, it is doubtful that the presidency as we know it will survive him. At least he will do everything in his power to make sure that it doesn't.

Obama differs, first and foremost, from Hillary in that he is a crackpot, while she is eminently practical and bereft of all illusions, cynical almost. By crackpot I mean, of course, that Obama is the spirit child of Jeremiah Wright. The reverend's skewered worldview is also Obama's, his belief that America is an agent of evil in the world that must be humbled is also shared by Obama, his willingness to appease America's enemies and his hostility to its allies, is also derived from Wright. Obama's politics revolve around Wright's teachings as the earth does around the sun. He has spent 20 years reflecting those beliefs before audiences receptive to them. Had Wright not exposed himself for what he was and left absolutely no room for maneuvering around him, Obama might even have selected him to offer the prayer at his inauguration.

Political platitudes, meaningless diatribes about indescript dreams a la Walt Disney, are the means Obama employs to conceal his real agenda. If he didn't believe that the American public would recoil at his thinking he would not endeavor camouflage it under popularist rhetoric which hints at everything but commits to nothing. If his message were safe for Americans to hear he would have no difficulty enunciating it. But the Wright debacle convinced Obama, or, rather, confirmed Obama in the belief, that the less Americans know about him and his associations, the better. Wright, of course, is not the worst of it. The reverend is merely a purveyor of hate, a divider, a despicable cheerleader of vicarious revolution, and, of course, Obama's mentor and spiritual guide. There are other longtime Obama supporters and sponsors to whom he is beholden not merely for ideas but for the means to advance rapidly in a career without acquiring any distinction in it. Thanks to them the senator with the least seniority and least distinguished record, who, in his 3 years in the Senate, has scrupulously avoided voting on any controversial issues while still managing to compile a 100% rating as a liberal, is going to be the nominee of the party whose last victory was obtained by running away from everything that the Democrats have stood for in the last 75 years.

That someone of his ideological purity, a socialist by any definition, has managed to challenge and nearly overthrow the political heir of that last victory, shows that the radicals within the Democratic party are taking it back with a vengeance. It is not that he they have co-opted Obama, but, rather, nurtured him from the first day of his political career. And, of course, we don't just mean just the limousine liberals, but the liberals behind the barricades, exemplified by the Weather Underground and other terrorist or quasi-terrortist organizations, soaked in Communist ideology, whose aim then and now is the overthrow of democracy in America and the imposition of a Castro-style dictatorship.

Obama's first act as president will be to redeem the debt which all radicals owe to Fidel Castro for fomenting unrest and supporting terrorism in this country for nearly 50 years. It is the mission of Barack Obama, one of the few things to which he has actually committed himself. His willingness to talk to Raúl Castro, or, even, to be drivelled upon by Fidel, is too great an obsession in him to be denied. By offering to negotiate with the Castro regime without prior conditions he has, in effect, not only validated every horror that Fidel Castro has perpetrated on the Cuban people in the last half-century but given the green light to any and all predations that Raúl might inflict on them between now and the time that Obama sits down to talk to him. As Obama exchanges pleasantries with Raúl, his henchmen could be torturing a political prisoner in the next room and it would make absolutely no difference to this moral apostate who asks nothing of tyrants but their hospitality.

Of course, Barack Obama is not yet president. There is one more hurdle that he must overcome. In the final battle against McCain, he will be seconded by the MSM, which have favored him in the race against Hillary but have not let their hand show until the very last days of the primary season. From the party conventions to the election, their bias will know no restraint and offer no apology. It would really be hopeless except for the fact that Obama's appeal is greatest in Democratic constituencies within predominantly Republican states. In the contest with Hillary he has lost all of the big states which he would have to carry in November in order to win the presidency. It is hard to imagine any coalition of states which he could assemble that would get him over the electoral vote hump. Obama will be a greater unifying force for Republicans than for Democrats (27% of whom affirm that they will not vote for Obama if he is their party's candidate). Bush's disastrous presidency and McCain's diluted conservative credentials will mean nothing when the prospect of an Obama presidency looms as the alternative.

LOL Mat, you reach back into the 19990's and peddle how bad that decade was for Americans. Then you go straight to 2008, and talk about how bad the Democratic president will be, even though he/she has yet to take office.

But mat, your forgot something in your complaints.

You forgot the worst president in modern united states history. The Cuban-Americans greatest hero, George W. Bush. I will never know why the Cuban-Americans voted "twice" for this Betty Ford's school of ex-drunkards.

Cuban-Americans, including yourself lost a lot of credibility and respect around the world, because of your worship of George W. Bush.

Too bad too, as Cuban-Americans will always be known as George W. Bush's toliet paper. Used once, and flushed like excrement!!

MAT, I think you forgot to call Walt Disney a racist. Or a self-hating hispanic. Or something.

This is when we must make a distinction between Miamians and Cuban/Americans in general. I know it is not easy since to the world in general Miami represents Cuban/Americans, but you are perpetuating a fallacy. What was true 40 years ago, because they had the power and the money. That myth is just not true today. Yes Cuban/American in Miami (the old guard) cling to that sense of entitlement they enjoyed during the heyday of " El año que viene en Cuba"
Since they did absolutely shit to achieve that goal, the future generations (including those living in Miami) have gradually stepped away from the almost tyranical hold these first wavers held on the rest of the Cuban/American population.

But they are LOUD, still come up with ridiculous strategies as to how to keep Elian in the USA, and their emotional, extremely perturbing exposure to the MSM, sealed the destiny of that child.

The party celebrating Castro's death is just another stupidity embraced by a minority of Cuban/Americans in Miami, but that got the news.

I can guarantee you that the majority of Cuban/Americans in Miami have taken very opposite views and those who have dared disagree with the geriatric group and their offsprings have time and time again been accused of airing "dirty lundry

Cuban/Americans in Miami do not crown a president of the USA. You need to be exposed to all of those Cuban/Americans spread through the USA and the world before you come up with sweeping and capricious conclusions.
The link between Miami being the mouthpiece of Cuban/Americans in exile was lost right after Giron and the betrayal of Kennedy which was way too easily forgiven by the Miamians of the time in fact giving the traitor the most blatant symbol of his betrayal.

Do some research as to what portion of Cuban/Americans are sticking by Bush you will find that the majority blog on the Beer & Pot rag.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Nonee,

That is one thing i like about mat. He isnt a self-loathing Cuban, he is proud of his heritage, his family, and his nation. Unlike Hernry Gomez, and Val Prieto, would do nothing but distance themselves from their Cuban brethan, or deliberately hurt the cause of a free Cuba.

Where Mat falls, and loses some credibility, is being an apologist to people who 1) hate him (Trancredo and Newt) 2) discards him (bush). Which may to a certain degree be considered self-loathing by some.

Nevertheless, it is understandable why Mat must destroy all things Democrat. As a Democratic Party will not return the island of Cuba, to the those Cuban exiles who fled.

Rather, a Demcratic Party will return the Cuban island, to the Cubans who remained and struggled against communist. Which to some Cuban Batista-type ruling exiles, is a worse scenario than Fidel himself. As they know they cannot undo a Democratic Cuba.

john:

For the millionth time, I was never a supporter of George Bush. I have attacked him consistently throughout his presidency for the very reasons that you would have supported him: his embrace of Clinton's "Wet Foot/Dry Foot" policy, which he has upheld longer than Clinton did; and for allowing his own party to gut the embargo in search of illusory profits.

Cuban-Americans got nothing from Bush but lip-servive while he did his upmost to maintain the status quo in Cuba in order to avoid having to face the consequences of America's actions there over a half-century.

"Let the next guy" handle it" was his mantra. "The next guy" may well "handle it" by recognizing the Castro regime and handing him the keys to the U.S. Treasury.

So do not include me in any of your fulminations against "Cuban-Americans."

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Anon said: Cuban/Americans in Miami do not crown a president of the USA.


Wrong, most Cubans in Miami boast how they foisted Bush upon the world. The Miami Cubans said they would punish the world over the return of Elian. And the Miami Cubans did punish the world. The Miami Cubans also said, that they never wanted the world to forget what they did. And the world will never forget what the Miaimi Cubans did!!

I have also been attacking Newt Gingrich for 15 years and Tom Tancredo since he was elected to Congress. I have attacked them at RCAB till there was nothing more to say about them. I have even outed Tancredo as a closeted Hispanic in his own hometown newspaper.

What more do you expect me to do?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said about bush: Cuban-Americans got nothing from Bush but lip-servive


No, no, no Mat, if Cuban-Americans "only" got lip-service from Bush that would be the least of the damage that Bush has heaped upon the Cuban-American community.

No sir, Cuban-Americans sacrificed their word, their reputation, and indeed their respect around the world in their efforts of 2000 to get Bush in office. And to ensure that America, and the world was punished for Elian.

Indeed, the damage to the Cuban-American is unmeasurable, and will have a lasting effect for generations of Cuban-Americans!!

Feel free to test my theory, go to "any" nation. And simple say to the first local, "yes i am Cuban-American and i voted for Bush." Be safe in the notion, that the local's response will not be a pleasant one.

Then you will be able to discern the true destruction that Bush has dumped upon the people that were always loyal to him, the Cuban-Americans!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

anonymous @ 9:40AM:


The fact is that the "Old Guard" was right about Elián. Everything that they warned would happen to Elián in Cuba has indeed happened to him.

The MSM's hatred for Cuban exiles and the cause of Cuban freedom is one of its longest-running obsessions. Now it takes the form of moral equivalence, as if the acts of individuals in a heterogenous community (which you yourself acknowledge the Cuban-American community to be) could be equated to the acts of a regime that speaks with one voice.

Over the last 49 years, the Castro regime has murdered more than 104,000 Cubans. How many Cubans have the exiles murdered, imprisoned or exiled?

Nor do I regard Babalú as a spokesman for the "Old Guard." I certainly doubt very much that the "Old Guard" would chose Val Prieto or Henry Gómez as their spokesmen. One has to know at least a little bit about Cuban history to understand the "Old Guard" and Val & Henry still need to read a lot before they become even neophytes on the subject.

mat,


If you have distance yourself from those that hate you, because of your Spanish heritage, like Newt and Trancredo, then my sincere apologies.

It is not often, however, that i read that a Cuban-American has condemn those "republicans" that hate him. On the contrary, the Cuban-American often votes for and celebrate them. Thinking that their vote will somehow give them a free pass from the anti-Spanish backlash in America. Perhaps, that was true in the past. But not in this anti-Spanish frenzied climate, which the Republicans have brought the Spanish immigrant.

Mat, I would like to see how you would vote in my local Indiana elections. As nearly all the republican party members are "really" KKK types, who are much, much worse than Trancredo and Newt.

Actually, there wouldnt be a choice for you in Indiana. As your R does not get you an exemption, nor does it get you a free Cuba. On the contrary, you get the Tom Trancredo, and then you get his boot in your ass for being Spanish!!

That is Indiana, and that is your anti-Spanish republican party. And that is your future, and not Rev. Wright.

When Obama, said, "typical white people," got it right. It is typical of my people, especially here in Indiana. And there is one thing i know for sure, a bigot doesnt like to be called a bigot. Except of course, in Indiana, where being a bigot is a badge of honor that is to be proudly displayed.

Unfortunately, in the coming years, the Spanish immigrant will have to find this out the hard way. Especially, the Cuban-Americans, who seems to think that they are exempt from the anti-Spanish backlash that the republican party is fanning in America.

Good luck!!

MSM doesnt have an obsession about Cuba, or her exiles. In fact, i would argue that MSM doesnt give a shit about Cuba, nor does America, nor do many Cuban-Americans, nor does George W. Bush.

And now you want to blame Obama for something that the Venezuelans wanted.

LOL, both silly and sad!!

Mat, you and the Venezulans must take responsiblity for what your people intially wanted. You bought, and now you must at it!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Open letter to all Spanish immigrants:


Cubans and Venezeulans must learn how to fight their own battles without America. You must learn to build your own highways, and bridges. Learn to educate and feed your own children. Learn to decipher potential Spanish dictators, which their has been many.

The Fidels and Chavezs are not our fault, nor our problem. It is up to you to remove these dictators, which you foisted upon yourselves. Address "your" countrymen, and not "our" countrymen!!


Sincerely,
John

As for Indiana, "we did much better than all the pundits predicted, despite Republicans changing parties to support Senator Clinton, believing she would be easier for Senator McCain to defeat," Obama wrote. "Now is the time for each one of us to step up and do what we can to close out this primary."

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

fantomas,


Unlike Mat, I knew Indiana would be close. Mat deceptively tried to argue that Obama was a black racist who hated whites. Well, at least up in Indiana we know who the real racist are. As many Indiana natives are bitter racist themselves. And "all" of my racist friends and family members always said that Obama was not a racist. And nearly all agree that Obama would be a much better president, than George W. Bush. But will not vote for him because of the fear of a Spanish vice president in Richardson. Note: all would quickly vote for "black" Collin Powell if he would have run for President.

It is unfortunate that a bright man like Mat may actually fool himself as to think Obama will lose to Mccain in a landslide, based on Rev. Wright.

Make no mistake, from what i saw the last two days in Indiana. Obama is the strongest Democratic candidate that this red state has seen in generations.

The absence of Obama-bashing comments reminds me of my family's dinner table last night. For the first time the anti-Spanish rhetoric was at a minimal. As the discussion was focused on gasoline prices, credit card debt, the housing crises, and the lost Iraq Wars.

Fantomas, times are getting very serious, and scarey. And all the ignorant talk of Obama being a racist just doesnt resonate with people who are concerned with America's trajectory. It didnt resonate with my family, and i doubt it resonates with the Cuban-American community!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

vana said: Obama will lose to McCain, all that voted for Hillary will vote for McCain, Obama will not be president.



Your correct Mccain will be our next President. It will be in large part because of the anti-Spanish backlash.

Thanks.

Vana said...

I too have heard the rumors, I hope they are unfounded, Joe where are you, speak up.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat,

My racist republican family is fairly typical of Indiana, as Obama would say. Unfortunely Mat, you would find very little common ground with them, other than the same political affiliation.

In fact, i suspect that you would feel more comfortable with the non-racist liberals in Indiana, the few that exist. Rather, then your republican brethen, that tend to have hatred for anything that is different. And this is particuarly true of the Spanish immigrant. Especially Spanish immigrants who have taken over an American city like Miami.

Nevertheless, i have no doubt that you would quickly and proudly caste a vote for any and all of my family members if they ran for elective office. If for no other reason, then they wear an R on their chest.

But i must say, as an ex-liberal, i am proud that Obama battled through this most racist republican state, and made a respectable showing to the world.

I think it is so funny that Obama has shut up my racist republican father. Even i get tired of the hyped-up, dangerous racist republican rhetoric 24/7.

Anonymous said...

Can anyone tell us what the rumors are and who started them?

Fulano de Cal said...

Wow, let me say this for now based on some comments:

Bla bla bla, Cubans around the US are very different from those in Miami. Yes, we are not immersed in Cubanismo like the brothers and sisters in Miami, but we are united (>99%) in our revulsion for the castristas. Heck, we may be more united in this than people in Miami.

Someone is always trying to put Cuban-Americans strictly into Democrat or Republican camps. We vote on how a candidate identifies with our experience - and for almost all of us in this country, it is one that is anti-castrista.

As for the "historicos", never forget that some of them did have the courage to actually do something - at Giron.

My question for Obama: In this country there is no statute of limitations for murder. Do you think that Cuban-Americans (e.g., "historicos") should forget about their family members who were killed without due process? Should they just "get over it" since it has been 40 years?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

P.S.

Mat, you do know that the KKK orginated from Indiana. We have had the biggest and most active chapters in the entire nation. There are many parts of Indiana that a Spanish immigrant dare not venture into, day or night!!

Rumors are that Joe committed suicide on Saturday, May 3. Another that I heard was that the suicide was an attempt and he is currently in a hospital in Pittsburgh under a doctor's care.

He is one of the strongest people I have ever met. It is hard for me to accept that he do what people are suggesting.

Rumors were started on several cycling websites and then were removed with no further updates.

Anyone with info or who can reach him or his family, please let us know. We all love and care about he and his family.

P.S. 2

Also, it was the Spanish immigrants in the Northwest section of Indiana that helped carry Obama. It is an area of the state called Hammond, and East Chicago, which is for all intensive purposes Chicago. The Spanish immigrants up there would never ever vote for a racist Indiana republican. As they would be inflicting punishment upon themselves from the Indiana republican racist. And trust me, the there is nothing like the Indiana racist republican. Nothing.

John,
I just finished ready your various posts of this date. It seems you feel a need to overstate that your family are racist and you are not. However, every other word about Cubans is stereotype and hyperbole. You keep accusing MaT and others on the blog of being Bushies and they never were. How many times can they explain that to you. Methinks you are struggling with your own prejudices and it's pretty transparent. Your anger towards Cuban Americans could be considered as "racist" as what your family in Indiana feels about the hispanics. Dude, judge a person by his past actions, his friendships and his ability to make tough decisions. Don't judge them about skin pigmentation or nationality with funny sounding languages.

Hay crisis inmobiliaria que amenaza con crear comunas rurales pero en vez de hippies, de yuppies. La brecha entre la riqueza y la pobreza convierte al país en un México o Brasil sin corridos ni samba, lo que resulta aburridísimo. Las grandes corporaciones prefieren hacer "paquetes" de despido que pagar altos retiros o largas compensaciones por enfermedad. Lo cual nos vuelve paqueticos con paticas caminando por la calle (algo kaffkiano). En el 80% de los hogares donde había más de un sueldo ha decantado uno, con su natural erosión de beneficios, seguro médico y sueño americano, aumentando el consumo de soporíferos. La juventud, abrumada por sus hormonas, hace escapismo por internet y se suicida ante la web cam y postea piñaceras en youtube y myspace. La guerra se inmoviliza tanto que se vuelve una guillotina de nuestros hijos en cámara lenta. Los medios de comunicación se parcializan por culpa de la recesión silenciada en año electoral. De algo tienen que vivir y viven de la mentira. El patriotismo nos pone a mirar por la rendijita de la ventana al vecino que tiene turbante y a escoger "a random" a los malos en los aeropuertos. Los atletas se corroen de batidos anabólicos empujados por la quimera del extrapago. Se inflan, se aturden, se vuelven monstruos sin pelo. Los records deportivos no son válidos porque son de vitrina y foto. La vejez opta por largarse antes de tiempo (el humano, en lugar de disfrutar su estadía planetaria gracias al avance tecnológico, la apura, por el costo del progreso en sí). Los logros medicocurativos se estancan amordazados por las criminales firmas de fármacos (enfermedades como el Parkinson ya son curadas por brujos del tercer mundo y aquí desangran a los familiares del enfermo, los endeudan y los enferman también). Renacen los monopolios y nos suben tarifas hasta para reir (llevándose el viento el gran logro de los demócratas en décadas atrás). La gasolina se va a cifras aterradoras sin ningún tipo de reacción popular ni gubernamental (en los 70 éramos aún mercado del crudo e hicimos huelgas y reajustes nacionales; ahora que somos inversionistas y socios, que se jodan las otras nueve décimas partes de la población). Ante este panorama en el patio... si usted vota por McCain es un comemierda o un masoquista.

Once upon a time, however, he was much worse than he is today. My efforts and those of others at MCS at least convinced him to stop defending Fidel as a means of attacking Cuban exiles.

I do not know if it will ever be possible for him to stop scapegoating Cuban-Americans for anything and everything that goes wrong in this country.

His usefulness lies in the fact that he gives us a peek into the thinking of other Johns who are more reticent to make their real opinions known though no less virulent on that account.

It would be no historical anomaly to elect a president and end-up with a dictator.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

vana said about my family: how about they are a bunch of uneducated, intolerant ignorant fools.



When i used to tell my family that. They would laugh in my face and call me a liberal. In Indiana, most people get called liberal if they dare to speak out against the anti-Spanish bigotry by republicans!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said: His usefulness lies in the fact that he gives us a peek into the thinking of other Johns who are more reticent to make their real opinions known though no less virulent on that account.




The other Johns are available for viewing at: Foxnews, CNN conservatives, Rush Limbaugh, or basically where you find a gathering of three or more red state republicans!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fulano de cal:

I could not agree more with you. It is time that Cuban-Americans stop behaving as if there were only one political party in this country. If we made our support contingent on actual results rather than empty promises, there would be no "Wet Foot/Dry Foot" policy in place today.

Of course, Obama is a special case. There is no compromising or bartering with him because he is the pet of all our enemies.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

You forget to mention your alter ego Lou Dobbs.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat i said, CNN conservatives, which includes Lou Dobbs. I find it ironic how Cuban-Americans always complained about the lack of conservative voices on CNN.

LOL, then CNN begins to bring in conservative voices like Dobbs, and Glenn Beck, and now the Cuban-Americans complain that CNN is anti-Spanish.

One day you Cuban-Americans will realize that being a true red state conservative means being anti-Spanish immigrant. For some Cuban-Americans, they find being anti-Spanish immigrant very easy. Even if it requires self-hatred!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

It is only to be expected that CNN would recruit "conservative" commentators who are also anti-Hispanic. Their goal, of course, is to make conservatives look bad even while ostensibly becoming more receptive to their views.

CorgiGuy said...

mat, if i recall you chose not to become an american ciitizen, now you are criticizing americans for possbile choosing a president that's not your liking.

Whether mccain or obama it will be the will of the american voter.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat,

No sir, CNN is just trying to keep up with the competition like "conservative" Foxnews, which is decidely anti-Spanish immigrant. As directed by the Republican National Committee!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

In not renouncing my Cuban citizenship in order to obtain U.S. citizenship I did not also renounce my right as a free man to opine on American politics or any other subject. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to be able to ignore this circus, but, unfortunately, the decision made by Americans in November will affect also the future of my country, so, of course, it is of great importance to me.

Doing my best to stop Americans from walking off a cliff transcends politics. It is a service to humanity.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

P.S.:

Corgiguy, do I detect creeping xenophobia in you?

Corgiguy, meet John.

John, meet Corgiguy.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said: Corgiguy, do I detect creeping xenophobia in you?



Xenophobia: see republican party

CorgiGuy said...

mat, you are lucky that you live an country that allows you to vent and criticize. that's your right and i defend it.

i find it disingeneous for a non-american citizen to inject venum into our political choice.

as far as xenophobia, i don't what you are talking, please elaborate.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

corgiguy,


What the hell are you talking about. These are the Cuban-Americans who broke into The Watergate Hotel. Many of them could care less about the Democratic process. The expression of a Democratic process is only from the mouth out!!

Vana said...

John:

We get it, you obviously hate us, and all hispanics, enough with the same tired song, please, go try to talk some sense into your racist bigoted family, maybe if you hammer them like you do us they may learn..lol..even though I doubt it thick skulls are harder than concrete.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

vana,


I have never been so misunderstood by someone up until now. I am not a bigot, and i have never admitted to being one.

As per your request in regards to my racist republican family. It is very difficult to make inroads against bigotry when you used to be a liberal. Hence, my tolerance often falls on deaf ears.

Perhaps, republican Cubans would have better luck with extracting the anti-spanish bigotry from their souls. After all, you do have at least "one" thing in common with my family, i.e., being republicans!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

I don't consider myself "lucky" in the least. Lucky would have been being able to live and die in the country where I was born, the only country I ever wished to live in and one I would never have left except for the fact that liberty was extinguished there thanks to U.S. interference in the political affairs of my country. That is something for which I will never be "grateful."

Vana said...

John:

I'm NOT a Republican, I live in California not Miami, I'm neither this or that, I vote for whom I consider to be the best candidate, do I make mistakes YES, I'm only human, I do not know how many times we must tell you. We who comment here are NOT radicals.

Vana said...

Yes Manuel, we are not lucky at all, had we been able to live our lives in a free Cuba, ahh then we would have been very lucky, we try to do the best with the rotten deal handed to us by God, or fate.

CorgiGuy said...

mat, so you choose to live in the country that you see as the perpetrator of your misfortune and and angst and hoping that commander in chief mccain will make it right for you, so you can return to what you lost, and to make that happen you will denounce the young black guy as the villain and blast it all over the internet.

and you call me a xenophobe? Ay Bendito!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat,

I agree with corgiguy, calling Obama a racist is no excuse for Bush not take advantage in this most critical time in Cuba's history.

Mamey said...

longfellow...the Spanish are from Spain, the English are from England. Can you please stop confusing language with nationality?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

Not "make it right for [me]." Nothing can make it right for me anymore. Make it right, rather, for 12 million Cubans who have endured Castro's tyranny for nearly 50 years.

In fact, I don't know if McCain will do anything for Cuba. But one thing I do know, your man Obama will make it worst for all Cubans by legitimizing the Castro regime. It is no secret. He has admitted it. One of the few things that he has ever been honest about in his political career.

I take him at his word in this case. You, apparently, don't.

Fantomas said...

Mat i will do anything in my powers para desenmascararte por embustero , mentiroso y lenguilarga

The American president who has done the most for Cubans was Lyndon B. Johnson. It was the Cuban Adjustment Act (1966) which he signed into law that allowed Carter to admit you into the U.S. in 1980.

Fantomas said...

i was born in 1966 sorry mat

CorgiGuy said...

your obama attacks, show your true colors. can you just criticize the senator without injecting venom?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,


But LBJ was a liberal Democrat. And i thought that Cuban-Americans hate all Democratic Presidents.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

corgiguy,

Who cares about Mat's venom against Obama. It the silly "Obama is a racist" falsehoods that is sad.

If Mat wants to write about real bigots, then he should travel to Indiana, so he can meet some hardcore bigots. And write about the republican party, and the "true" harm that they are causing against the Spanish speaker.

Maybe Joani?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

I will shortly put up a new post about the petition being circulated for the release of Cuba's political prisoners.

After that, I will devote a post to you, corgiguy and others who think that you can support Cuban freedom by supporting Cuba's enemies (e.g. Obama).

Fantomas said...

freedom by supporting Cuba's enemies (e.g. Obama).

5/08/2008 4:16 PM

Solo en tu mente hueca cabe decir que obama es enemigo de la libertad de Cuba. tremenda sorpresa se llevara raul pensara que el negrito le va a hacer facil pero se equivoca. Obama sera un negociador incansable por los derechos y libertades de los cubanos


y no se crean que me he olvidado hace como dos semanas anuncie por este medio que yo iba a escribir un post bomba ...bueno ya mismo lo empiezo y mat tu vas a tener la primicia aqui...

Ese post va a ir dirigido mayormente a las dos urracas parlanchinas ( 2 magpies) que ya ni te visitan

lol

faltan 8 dias para Cuba Nostalgia

Miami FL may 16-18

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,


You mean Cuba's exile enemies? Because the Cuban exile struggle, and the Cuban island struggle are two completely different beings. At least the "true" rationale is different.

CorgiGuy said...

mat, cuban enemies, you mean anybody who does not agree with you?

Fantomas said...

MAT se me habia olvidado hoy cumplo dos años con mi blog

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,

As you often tell Val and Henry, please dont tell the Cuban islanders who their enemies are. It makes you look like a hyprocrite at best, and a selfish totalarian at worst!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

Congratulations on your blog's 2nd anniversary. You must be at 10000 posts by now. Last time I checked you were hovering around there.

Fantomas said...

no tanto son como 3000 nada mas

recuerda no escribo mucho

think of a drudge report cubano

more like it

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

The problem is that you can't judge all people alike (gee, am I telling you this?).

I do know what is in the best interests of the Cuban people because I happen to be one of them. And, of course, I am closer to their enemies here, and so, I am in a better position to warn them.

Do you know what's in the best interests of the American people? You seem to think that you do.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,


I wouldnt profess to tell my countrymen who their enemy is. As that strikes me as narrow-minded communist group think.

My concern is Obama's open immigration policy. However, i would not be arrogrant enough to argue this makes Obama the enemy of America.

On the contrary, the different school of thoughts is what has made America the beacon of freedom throughout the world!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

"Different schools of thought" make America great?

Do you consider the KKK to be such a "school?"

I was wondering because you mention the "Invisible Empire" rather often.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Indeed, the KKK does have a school of thought. You may agree or disagree with their philosophy, but it is nonetheless a school of thought.

Today there is a congratulatory post at Babalú in honor of the first anniversary of Alberto de la Cruz's blog. Be sure to add your own good wishes.

It is a pity, though, that your friends at Babalú neglected to mark the 2nd anniversary of your blog.

Really, how many hints can they throw your way before you get the message?

It's coming in loud and clear for everybody else.

Mat I am not blogging to get congratulated by anyone. I can give a shit about that. I dont lose sleep about it. Concentrate en trabajar por Cuba. It is coming loud and clear that my work has been noticed by very VIP and thousands around the world specially from cuban freedom fighters inside the gulag

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Noticed but not, sadly, by your "friends" at Babalú. That was the only point that I was making.

Try to make it MAT , Nostalgia 2008, Miami Fl

I be there all day Saturday

Fulano de Cal said...

Does anyone think there will be a "Cubans for Obama" at the Nostalgia in Miami?

Fantomas said...

yes fulano de cal I will be there with my Obama T shirt

any problems with that?

Fulano de Cal said...

You are a brave man. If I wore an Obama shirt next week to Echo Park, I might get a cocotazo.

Vana said...

fulano de cal:

See you at echo park, also known as Jose Marti Park to us Cubans, there is a bust of the apostle there, I visit him every time I go.

CorgiGuy said...

fulano, in echo-park an obama-tshirt with SI SE PUEDE, might have an appeal to the folks there

Fulano de Cal said...

Corgiguy:

In these parts, "Si se puede" would probably be on a Clinton shirt.

Vana: Yes, our beloved Marti bust. I used to live down the street. See you there.
