i like words here's one for your obama lexicon

obama-angst - a feeling of dread, melancholy or terryfying emotion from the idea that an obama change is on the way.

Vana said...

Obamadoom a feeling he just may talk to Raul and doom Cuba to another 50 years of hell.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

I love "obamadoom."

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

"Obama-angst" isn't bad, either. However, I have a different definition for it:

obama-angst: The American-version of El derecho de nacer

Vana said...

LMAO..Manuel

Fantomas said...

Obamadoom a feeling he just may talk to Raul and doom Cuba to another 50 years of hell.

Vana tu quisistes decir MCCaindoom

piensa bien antes de hablar dear

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Or vana, maybe America's inaction will doom Cuba for another 40 years. You seem vey content with the status quo in Cuba.

Vana said...

John:

You must be kidding, I want real change in Cuba, not just a bandaid.

CorgiGuy said...

ay mat, pobrecito del obama

here you go -

obama-boberia - cuandos vives entre absurdo y melancolia

Ms Calabaza said...

MaT,
you're ba-a-a-a-ck! You were missed.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

obama-bobería: la próxima "Avenida Patrice Lumumba" en La Habana.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Vana,


Ok, you are President for the day. What would you to to move Cuba to freedom.


P.S.

And please dont saying nothing like your hero George W.Bush.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

If I may presume to answer the question that you posed to Vana.

If I were POTUS:

Give Castro and his clique 24-hours to depart the island with their hides and loot.

If they do not:

Impose a real embargo (you know, ships encircling the island).

Again offer them the opportunity to escape with hides and loot if they do so within 24-hours.

I assure you that they wouldn't need a second invitation.

Old men like to enjoy their declining years in comfort and security and Saddam Hussein's end weighs heavily on all of them.

Ms Calabaza said...

Ohh-bummm-ahhh, my latest mantra.

the Buddha

Ms Calabaza said...

MaT,

I just had a vision of Marines checking behind Raul's ear for head lice ala Saddam Hussein. . .

CorgiGuy said...

there you again mat, obama-lumumba

esta mareando a don-quijote con tus lingotes.

Rideon Roci, y tal, y tal.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,


Ok, then if Fidel and his men refuse to do as you command, then what?

Fantomas said...

millones de cubanos en la calle defendiendo a la revolucion imagenes en el granma


señores asi NO SE PODRA JAMAS HACER UNA VERDADERA CONTRA REVOLUCION

raulitis= ganar la revolcuion economica, 200 años mas de lo mismo con cotscos, mc donalds, guaguas chinas, home depots abiertos por toda cuba

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

They will not refuse.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

I don't doubt that there will be demonstrations orquested by lower-echelon Castro officials while the higher echelons are gathering their gold, stocks, property deeds in foreign countries and Swiss bankbooks.

CorgiGuy said...

fanto, remember

A revolution without dancing...is a revolution not worth having.

Agustin Farinas said...

What do you get when you mix a Harvard educated elitist with a Cuban born idiot residing in P.R.?

A groteste and hideous looking thing with a comdom on its head called: FANTOBAMA

Fantomas said...

agustin sorry

out of place comment

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,

I figured you would avoid the question. The only choice would be to invade Cuba. And you "know" that America would not send their sons and daughters to die for the Cubans.

Therefore, like Vana, you would do nothing about Cuba's freedom, just like Bush.

Fantomas said...

Mat , take a look at the picture I just posted on my humble blog and the little reseña que la acompaña

obamarama= all obama, all the time

Vana said...

John:

Just what Manuel said, am off to work, would like nothing more than to hang with this fine crowd all day, but duty calls.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

nonee,


Seriously, this is not a put down. But i have grown rather concerned about your well-being. You used to make sense to me. But now, it is like your a mental patient, whose Doctors allow you one visitation per day.

I seriously hope you get better soon.



Sincerely,
John

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Noone has never been allowed more than one visit a day.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Agustín:

The cloning of Obama and fantomas (if cloning is the route that fantomas choses to go) would indeed produce an abortion of Nature.

Also, those would be some ugly babies.

Fantomas said...

underneath the mask is not as ugly as it seems Mat

i dont believe much in cloning

no me gusta eso

And you wanted to permit me only one visit per day.

I agreed with John that, for whatever reason, you only manage to visit here at most once a day. John regretted that fact and so did I.

BLOGUERA CUBANA ENTRE LOS CIEN MAS INFLUYENTES EN EL MUNDO


1 de Mayo de 2008



Yoani Sánchez
La internauta cubana Yoani Sánchez fue seleccionada por la revista Time entre las 100 personas más influyentes del mundo en la lista divulgada este jueves por la publicación estadounidense.



La joven Licenciada en Filología aparece en la categoría de Héroes y Pioneros, junto a la líder de la oposición birmana y Premio Nóbel de la Paz, Aung San Suu Kyi.



En la lista de Time aparecen el magnate de los medios de prensa Rupert Murdoch, el Dalai Lama, el mandatario chino Hu Jintao, el presidente de Estados Unidos, George W. Bush, y el actor George Clooney, entre otras figuras de relieve internacional.



Yoani Sánchez, autora del blog Generación Y, fue galardonada este año con el premio Ortega y Gasset de periodismo 2008, que concede el diario español El País.



Los trabajos de la cibernauta de 32 años se destacan por una visión crítica de la realidad de Cuba. En marzo pasado, Sánchez escribió en su página que censores anónimos habían querido bloquear su espacio cibernético para que sus compatriotas no puedan leerlo.



José Luis Ramos tiene más sobre esta noticia.

Simon the Deli Owner said...

Wasn't that Yoani chic the same gal that the authors of Babalu and others were fingering as a suspected commie until a few days ago?
I hope they put their heads in the toilet and flush several times.

Tabacón said...

Yeah, Simón, this is she!!!!

Vana said...

Yes Simon, that is the same Yoani, Val has changed his mind, he now claims he spawned her

Vana said...

Lol Agustin good one!

Corgiguy, let's make a hit out of that rap you came up with..lol..

Vana said...

Manuel:

BTW you left us hanging, what was Marti's answer?

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

I am saving that for May 19.

But I do not think that I am giving much away when I say that you hit the nail on the head last night.

The answer, of course, is "yes."

Vana said...

Of course Manuel, Marti was too sympathetic of other's pain to say otherwise, what an awsome man, makes one feel ashamed.

Fantomas said...

manny que quede claro yo apoyo lo que hace joani pero como dice mi amigo alex hernandez esto todavia hay que tomarlo con pinzas

why has not she been shut down by the g2

suena raro todo esto

Fantomas said...

mat no te emopciones mucho con marti

a mi me dijeron que era un singon de pelicula

inclusive cogia muchachas jovencitas

era un pervert el jose marti ese y no se atrrevia a coger las armas era medio cobarde el muy degenerado

Fantomas said...

mat may i call you self loathing prick

i dont know what it means , it just popped in my head and i had to say it to somebody

does it make any sense?

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/02/us/politics/02indiana.html?_r=1&oref=slogin


Mat, told you!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat, you dont understand the mind of a red-state racist republican as i d.

I told you before, and will tell you again. At my red-state racist republican dinner table of my family, no red-state bigot in good standing belives Obama is a racist.

If you want to make a compelling argument against Obama that harms his presidential ambition. Then argue that Obama has an immigrant father. That will make the red-state republicans come out in droves to vote against Obama.

Write a hard-hitting piece that Obama doesnt have an American flag bumper sticker. LOL

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

tabacón:

Yoani Sánchez one of Time Magazine's "One Hundred Most Influential People in the World?"

If only it were true!

Although, certainly, having been chosen by Time for that distinction will increase her influence, which can only rebound to the benefit of Cuba.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

Yes, it is true that xenophobes would hate Obama for being the son of a foreigner (not an immigrant, because Obama Sr. returned to Kenya alone, abandoning his son).

But whatever hate they may nurture for him in that respect would be subsumed by the greater hate that they would feel for him as a black man and a successful black man at that.

Xenophobia is basically just another word for racism, which, granted, is more focused on brown than black but only because Hispanics (and particularly Mexicans) are an easier target of opportunity at this time.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

What is this compulsion which you have to malign everyone who is better than you? Whether Martí or Yoani, you should be celebrating what they did or are doing for our country not trying to blacken their names with libels that demean you, not them.

Simon the Deli Owner said...

And you will see how that boy sick with envy will put his dick in a pretzel and they will "congratulate" the blogging chick from Havana. It has to happen, yet.
As we say, that is know as "masked envy". If she falls, G-d forbid, their schadenfreude will be obvious.
The good are few, the mediocre are many.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

I think the hatred for successful Obama is similiar to the hatred against successful Cubans.

Here, Obama is a son of a foreginer, besting Americans at their own game. And of course, my republican racist state hides their anger and jealousy behind code words in public. But at the dinner table you hear the truth.
You hear racist republican talk that Obama is an immigrant, or that he is not a "real" American, because he doesnt have an American name like Joe Smith.

I once asked my racist republican father, "why he hated Obama so much." My father said, "because he has an immigrant sounding name."

And that Mat is what this election will come down to in my redneck racist republican state. Which is the narrow-minded reason why i left it in the first place.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said: But whatever hate they may nurture for him in that respect would be subsumed by the greater hate that they would feel for him as a black man and a successful black man at that.



A Collin Powell would have easily beaten George Bush. Also, i think a JC Watts who was elected in all-white Oklahoma, would be given a fair shake.

Mat, it is all about the Spanish immigrant. Sorry, but it is. The hatered of the black man is trumped by the hatered of the Spanish immigrant. At least in my community.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

LOL, and now breaking news, my hometown paper just "refused" to endorse Obama.


Its all about immigration!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said: Xenophobia is basically just another word for racism, which, granted, is more focused on brown than black but only because Hispanics (and particularly Mexicans) are an easier target of opportunity at this time.



"Easy targets" is way too simplistic to explain the increasing anti-Spanish backlash in America.

It is the fear of the English culture bein taken over by the Spanish culture. It is about the higher birth rates, it is about pressing two for Spanish, it is about entire cities being taken over like L.A. and Miami.

Also, the Republican party is hourly jacking up the anti-Spanish
sentiment in America.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

John:

Obama is a very unusual black man. Not only is he half white but the half that is African is literally African, that is, his ancestors did not suffer slavery in America. In fact, on his mother's side they were slaveholders and on his father's side Muslim slave traders.

No man is to blame for his ancestry, of course, though black nationalists like Obama who favor reparations would certainly make all white men pay for the sins of 5% of white men 200 years ago.

The opposition to Obama as an exploiter of race is pretty much limited to certain sectors in the black community itself, which regard him as insufficiently black and question his commitment to the black community on the basis of his connections to the white establishment.

Would you characterize blacks who oppose Obama on this basis as "racist?"

Cubanos por Obama , Inc said...

Hola amigos cubanos

Cuento con tu voto para estas elecciones presidenciales. America necesita un cambio. Dame una sola oportunidad.
Trabajare incansablemente para llevar la democracia a Cuba. Me sentare con el General Raul Castro a dialogar y lo mirare directamente a los ojos
El entendera mi mensaje


Senador B Obama

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

No, i would regard the 8% of those blacks who vote against Obama as black republicans. Part of the 4% of the black republicans who voted for republican ex-kkk wizard David Duke when he ran for governor of Lousiana, in 1990's.

Mat, you can twist and turn all you want. Fact is red state republicans are not going to vote for Obama because of the Spanish immigrant. I know it is to painful for you to admit, but it is true!!

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

cubanos por obama, inc.:

I would advise your candidate not to turn his back on Raúl unless he wants to experience what he missed by not going to prison when he was snorting (and possible hustling) coke in high school (and college) with his best friend the convicted drug dealer.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat said: prison when he was snorting (and possible hustling) coke in high school (and college) with his best friend the convicted drug dealer.




You talking about that cocaine-sniffing, three time arrestee, ex-alcoholic George W. Bush, the Cuban-American's hero?

CorgiGuy said...

man, this obama fellow sure stirs up emotions in rcab. to me obama is an interesting fellow becuase he's mulitcultural, i can relate to him on that level. i think he probably understands better than the other twi the strugles of the common man, you know like paying your bills, filling the tank, paying your mortgage. you know the real stuff that we all have to deal with on a everyday basis. i have no issue with him being black or having a crazy pastor that's boberia.

frankly hillary comes accross like a b##ch with her we get back bill and monica in the bedroom i don't know that i wan't to go there again

mccain well he just seems to me like he is bush on steroids and i have no fondness for the cowboy. mccain is war hero that's honorable and he used to be a maverick an independent that's atrractive. but the stratight talk express lost his wheels in the last couple months, in order to get his republicans to join ride. and don't you think is age and temper is a factor. the thought of 100 more years is deal breaker for me. plus his admmission of not having a handle on the economics well there you have it,i'm back to the obamacan.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

john:

George W. Bush is no hero of mine and never has been. His Cuban-American supporters know that he did nothing for Cuba and that is their reward for their doglike devotion.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

Jeremiah Wright is Phase 1 of the anti-Obama Campaign.

Phase 2 will be even more interesting.

That is, if Phase 2 is ever revealed. Because Phase 1 doesn't seem to be going away any time soon.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Mat, Bush, the lazy, no good, ex-con, uneducated, drunkard, remains the popular hero of the Cuban-American community.

You know it, America knows, and the world knows it. And nobody will ever forget it!!

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

mat,

Phase 2 has already started with the anti-spanish rhetoric against Obama, i.e., making Obama out to be an immigrant.

Will you reject that type of anti-spanish rheotric against Obama?

CorgiGuy said...

mat

phase 1, phase 2 mas boberias. mccain phase 1 has started. If you think jerimiah is an albatross around obama, wait till the 800 pund bush gorilla gets linked to mcccain, just watch the latest adds in tv.

by the way mat we are not electing a cuban/american president in this election we are electing an american president, let's keep that in perspective. cuban/americans are about 1% of the us population so our issues tend get lost in the presidential debate noise.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

corgiguy,

Cuban issues didnt get lost. Bush never gave a shit from the beginning. And yet, after nearly eight years, Bush remains undisputed hero within the Cuban-American community!!

LOL

CorgiGuy said...

john

i can only speak for myself, bush is no hero of mine.

you got to stop that group/stereotype deal man. you make good points, but they get lost when you start grouping everyone into the same mold.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

corgiguy,


When you have 95% of the Cubans in Miami vote for Bush the drunkard. Then i think i can assume that nearly all Cubans are Bush-backers.

Now you and Mat are the exceptions. But by no means does that absolve the fact that the world will forever link the Cuban-Americans and their children with Bush.

Having said that, i thank you for your compliment on my good points.
Very seldom to people say i make bad points. In fact, i make such good points that i often get kicked out of blogs, with whom the adminstrators have contrary opinions, as they cannot refute my direct hits.

Vana said...

John:

Excuse me but Mexicans are not taking over L.A, they were already here when the Anglos wrested her from Mexico, so you see they are just living in their land.

CorgiGuy said...

john

i don't know that the world gives a rats ass who cuban american vote for. cuban american are like every other ethno-centric group who votes for their perceived champion, whoever they think is going to stand for their cause. you can see this with the mexicanamericans, blacks, jews, gays that's what our democracy has come down, group and racial identity, that why nothing gets down in washington. is all meaningless boberia.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

Our "one issue" has (almost) all the candidates dancing to our tune at least until the election. After that, the winner just ignores us even if he owes us his election. John is not wrong in that respect.

Vana said...

John:

You further claim that it's the fear of English culture being taken over by the Spanish Culture, well what about the Italians, the Vietnamese, the Chinese, the Russians, and for that matter the oh so hated Irish when they first arrived.

There has always been xenophobobia in the American South, fear is a bitch my friend, that's all it is fear.

I can understand pressing 2 for Spanish, what I don't understand is pressing 1 for English...

CorgiGuy said...

mat

agree, with you one the one issue thing. that's why i call it boberia, becuase.

we sit here and argue and defend this politicians and stand behind and so on and then when they get elected they turn their heads.

personally i find the political drama etertaining, but my expectation are low. that must be the libertarian in me.
