JG: my thanks to BaseballdeCuba.com for letting me "borrow" this great photo.

Industriales is the only invictus team (6-0) in Cuba's 54th National Baseball Series


And in second place, with equal 4-2 records, are Matanzas, Sancti Spiritus, Ciego de Avila and Las Tunas, Granma.

Yulieski Gourriel's younger brother, Lourdes Y. Gourriel is batting .421 with two Home Runs and 5 RBI's in the first six games. Good way to start the new season.

Yulieski is currently playing with the Yokohama Bay Stars in Japan, and will join the Industriales after the NPB season is over.

The 2014 Club 100/30 was very small. Only seven players.

To be a member of this very select club, you truly have to be an outstanding baseball player. Babe Ruth did it twelve times. The Dope Heads of the 1980's did it by using performance enhancement substances, so they do not qualify for membership, at least in MY book.

By order of entrance into the 2014 Club.

Name, Team, RBI's, HR's

Stanton Giancarlo, MIA, 105, 37
Cruz Nelson, BAL, 108, 40
Trout Mike, LAA, 111, 36
Abreu Jose, CHW, 107, 36
Ortiz David, BOS, 104, 35
Bautista Jose, TOR, 103, 35
Martinez Victor, DET, 103, 32

The deepening crisis of American capitalism keeps growing and growing


 
Since the ascension to the White House of POTUS #43 & POTUS#44 the crisis of American capitalism has continued to deepen. It keeps getting worse.

The USA is almost bankrupt. Since Obama went to the Oval Office in January of 2009, the National Debt has skyrocketed to almost 20 Trillion U.S. Dollars. Who is going to pay for that humongous debt? Capitalist millionaires and billionaires are not going to contribute one dollar. Your sons and daughters and grandchildren will have to pay it.

Dubbya and El Negrito have practically destroyed the USA, once a strong and prosperous country.

Let's review:

President George W. Bush - President Bush added the second greatest amount to the debt, at $5.849 trillion. This more than doubled the debt, which was $5.8 trillion on September 30, 2001 -- the end of FY 2001, which was President Clinton's last budget. Bush responded to the 9/11 attacks by launching the War on Terror. This drove military spending to record levels,  $600-$800 billion a year. This included the Iraq War, which cost $807.5 billion. He approved a $700 billion bailout package for banks to combat the 2008 global financial crisis [a.k.a. the bursting of the capitalist housing bubble.] Not a single capitalist has gone to jail for it. It was pure speculation gone wild.

President Barack Obama - The debt grew the most dollar-wise during President Obama's term. He added $6.103 trillion, a 52% increase, in six years. Obama's budgets included the economic stimulus package, which added $787 billion by cutting taxes, extending unemployment benefits, and funding job-creating public works projects. The Obama tax cuts added $858 billion to the debt over two years. Obama's budget included increased defense spending to around $800 billion a year.

See: U.S. Debt by President.

Barack Obama is a huge liar. He promotes WAR, not peace. And the U.S. Congress has an even worse record. They are part of the problem, as much as #43 & #44 are.

The Bombing of Syria and unending [perpetual] US war


By Bill Van Auken, World Socialist Web Site, 24 September 2014

Once again, the US military machine has fired cruise missiles and dropped bombs upon a defenseless country in the Middle East--this time Syria. As with "shock and awe" against Iraq in 2003 and the "humanitarian" war for regime-change in Libya in 2011, Washington is hurling the American people into a war of aggression based upon lies. [JG: bold and underline are mine.]

What perhaps distinguishes this latest eruption of American militarism most strikingly is the absolutely perfunctory manner in which the president of the United States announced that Washington had attacked yet another country.

Barack Obama spoke for barely three minutes Tuesday before he boarded a helicopter on the White House lawn. His cursory remarks, beginning with praise for "the finest military that the world has ever known," made it clear that the American ruling class no longer feels obliged to even explain, much less defend, its military interventions. The public is simply expected to accept them as a permanent fact of life.

As for Congress, it scurried out of town for a five-week pre-election recess, getting well away before the bombs started falling. It has effectively renounced its constitutional power [JG: bold and underline are mine.] regarding the waging of war while working to prevent this most vital question from becoming an issue at the ballot box.

Is capitalist billionaire George Soros a buitre, i.e. vulture? The President of Argentina, Cristina Fernadez, is meeting with him today.



Beware of Capitalist Buitres (Vultures)

JG: She better be careful. People like Soros only care about one thing: MONEY! She should continue protecting Argentina against the capitalist buitres.

Link to the article by Reuters

Excerpt:

(Reuters) - Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Monday will meet bondholder and billionaire financier George Soros. 

Fernandez is in the United States ahead of the United Nations General Assembly, as relations between Buenos Aires and Washington sour over the role a U.S. court played in Argentina's debt saga.

For the first five innings of the game, Yoanni Yera only allowed one Pativerde to reach first base. He ended up pitchen seven innings. There was no doubt about who was going to be the winner of the game.

Yosvani Torres was the loser of the game. Ariel Sanchez went three for five. No home-runs in the game.

As expected ...

... there is no live Cuba Beisbol on the Internet. The URL did not deliver on what they promised.

Most stuff on the Internet is either a SCAM, or it does not work as promised.

However, you can look at the Boxscore at the Federacion Cubana de Beisbol Aficionado as the game progresses:

Masterpieces of Czeslaw Slania, the greatest Master Engraver that ever lived









Courageous 156

A historical vote took place this past Wednesday, September 17, in the U.S. House of Representatives.

35.8% of the members of the House said NAY to Barack Obama's new military adventure in the Middle East.

Did he expect that he can bomb and invade countries without any retaliation from the people in those countries?

If you want to know how your Representative voted, go to page H7680 of the Congressional Record, which is available at Thomas Library of Congress, on the Internet.

Why are very dark clouds descending over so-called American democracy?



Arrogance is the name of the game in the USA since the XXI Century opened up.

Only fools believe that we have a democracy in the USA. What we really have is the dictatorship of Big Capital, Millionaires, Billionaires and behemoth corporations. We are approaching a truly fascist state very, very fast.

Look at India and Brazil. They have more than 20 political parties. Those are true democracies.

There is not one iota of difference in the USA between the Democratic party and the Republican party. In the USA, when there is an “election” everyone knows who is going to win: THE CAPITALISTS!

I will give you very clear and very recent example:

Florida will hold a gubernatorial election on the first Tuesday in November of this year. The ruling capitalist elites told the people in last night’s local news that the candidate of the Libertarian Party will NOT BE ALLOWED to participate in the “debate” between


Tweedledee Republican Candidate
&
Tweedledum Democrat Candidate


Capitalists win, the people loose!

I will no longer participate in these biennial farces.


General Augusto Pinochet, Chile

Above is the type of "leader" that USA capitalists put in power and love. Richard Nixon and his Jew Boy Kissinger made sure of that.
