Not Enough!

The extreme right-right wing Miami 'Gusano' Herald is reporting that Donald Trump's new communications director has traveled to Cuba to explore 'El Bizneo' on the island.

What a bunch of bull shit and garbage.

That is not enough. What needs to be done is for POTUS #45 to send a written request to the U.S. House and Senate to inmediately lift/repeal the U.S. blockade/emabargo against Cuba.

It has been REPUDIATED by 191 civilized countries at the United Nation's General Assembly.

Peter, Paul and Mary was an American folk group formed in New York City in 1961


1961 was the saddest year of my young life. I was 17 years old. My parents and myself became victims of the evil Operation Peter Pan, which was put into action by the Yankee imperialist CIA and the corrupt high hierachy of the stupid Cuban Catholic Church.

The lives of 14,000 Cuban children were deeply scarred forever.

Remembering FEMA's Creative Writing Department of 2004-05 as I prepared to retire.

2004 was a very bad year for me. I had totally burned-out as a computer programmer-analyst (PA) after working 20 years in that chosen profession in Portland, Oregon. Back in 1969-70 I had spent 69 weeks at night in Western Business University. My class started with 24 men. Six of us graduated. My diploma said 'With Honors.' I was very happy. I found a good job immediately.

At my last job in 1988 I was being paid very well. I was not happy with the company, though. I was making $35,000 a year. Very good money back then.

A head-hunter that I had contacted to try to find me a new job with another company told me: “They have golden handcuffs around your wrists. You must be very good.” PA's were being paid $32,000 a year.

After I left programming, all my jobs were shitty, low-wage jobs. Common in capitalist USA.

I sold off all my first editions of mystery books by Lawrence Block at Powell's City Of Books, and bought a one way Greyhound ticket to Orlando Florida. I hated Miami. I did not want to live there.

In my last job before retirement I was being paid minimum wage as an Administrative Assistant in a Hispanic non-profit company.

Then came the Year of the Five Hurricanes in Florida. One very nice lady at the non-profit told me that FEMA was looking for translators of documents, mostly press releases, but including other documents as well.

I applied at FEMA, and got the job. I went from $5.25 an hour to $17.00 an hour. I was very happy again.

We were working 12 hours a day shifts, seven days a week. I made $25,000 in five months. I saved 90%, for retirement.

Translating the documents from English to Spanish was very easy for me. I am fluent in both languages.

The group of English to Spanish translators at FEMA was very small. We were not part of any department. The Americans who wrote the press releases in English were part of the Creative Writing Department.

Creative Writing consisted of telling LIES in the press releases. The information given about the Emergency Centers were not lies. It was based on truths.

When a FEMA Emergency Center Office was opened in Florida, it was accompanied by a Press Release. Sent to the local press.

It had the address of the center, the hours, the emergency assistance programs, all of them truths.

The Press Releases would always include quotations from government officials. They were invented by the creative writers. All of them were lies, invented by us. At the end of my job, I had been transferred to the Creative Writing Department.

Now you know the Rest of the Story.

So now, when I see a quotation from a government official in a newspaper, I ask myself, is it Creative Writing?

Are the Yankee imperialists promoting destabilization and chaos in Venezuela so it can seize/steal its huge oil deposits?

I believe that the answer to my question is a very resounding YES.

Reuters: Anti-Maduro strike paralyzes swathes of Venezuela. Partners in crimes with the Yankees. 

Do not forget that Reuters is a 100% capitalist news agency located in the United Kingdom.


Hey Google, stop promoting the Miami Herald in your search bar. Will you tell us how much money that Scum Newspaper puts into your pockets?

When you get to the Google News search bar and you type Cuba and then press 'enter'  you will see that the news handed to you by Google, 5 out of 10 (50.00%) come from the Miami Herald.

Why Google? How much money is that scum newspaper putting into your pockets?

I do not feel sorry for U.S. Senator John McCain. In 2014 he opposed President Barack Obama's Normalization of Diplomtic Relations with Cuba. Here is the Press Release from his office.

December 17, 2014

McCAIN & GRAHAM ON PRESIDENT RESTORING RELATIONS WITH CUBA

U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) today released the following statement on President Obama’s plans to ease U.S. restrictions on Cuba and normalize diplomatic relations:

“We agree with President Obama that he is writing new chapters in American foreign policy. Unfortunately, today’s chapter, like the others before it, is one of America and the values we stand for in retreat and decline. It is about the appeasement of autocratic dictators, thugs, and adversaries, diminishing America’s influence in the world. Is it any wonder that under President Obama’s watch our enemies are emboldened and our friends demoralized?

“Unfortunately, we fear the most damaging chapter to America’s national security is still being written. We dread the day President Obama takes to the podium to announce a nuclear deal with the Iranian ayatollahs which does little, if anything, to deter their nuclear ambitions, placing our nation and our closest allies in even deeper peril.”

JG: President Donald Trump insulted McCain for being "captured" in North Vietnam.

John McCain is nothing but a scummy warmonger.
