Bill Maher: Ben Carson and his famous painting.

Donald Trump & Ben Carson are unfit to be President of the U.S.

God save the U.S.A. if one of these two fanatics reaches the White House.

Anyone can poll 25 percent in a survey. Getting to 51% on election day separates the kiddies from the men.

Donald Trump is a very dangerous man and so is Ben Carson. They both live in Fantasy Land.

El Donald earned Four Pinochios recently. These two nuts see "enemies" under every rock.

They both appeal to fringe elements within the country. Only the idiots who belong to the Know Nothing Party would vote for them.

Cuba claims that Obama can do more to improve relations vis a vis Cuba

What Obama can do 

Despite the fact that Congress must take action to definitively end the blockade, President Obama has broad executive powers to substantially modify its implementation much more than he has thus far

Author: Granma International news staff | informacion@granma.cu november 13, 2015 13:11:09

Listed below are a number of steps he could take immediately.

1. Allow Cuba to use the dollar in international transactions.
2. Permit Cuban transactions in USD to be handled within the U.S. banking system.
3. Facilitate the opening of correspondence accounts by Cuban entities in U.S. banks.
4. Instruct U.S. representatives in international financial institutions to refrain from creating obstacles to the granting of credit to Cuba.
5. Halt the levying of fines on international banks for processing Cuban transactions.
6. Authorize Cuban aircraft and ships to transport passengers, cargo and mail between the two countries.
7. Authorize the direct export of U.S. products to Cuba.
8. Allow Cuba to import from other countries products which have more than 10% U.S. made components.
9. Permit imports to the U.S. of high demand Cuban goods and services such as cigars, rum and biotechnology products, including those manufactured in other countries using Cuban raw materials such as sugar and nickel.
10. Authorize U.S. companies to invest in Cuba.
11. End limitations of Cuban products which U.S. visitors to the country wish to import for their personal use.
12. Authorize U.S. citizens to receive medical treatment in Cuba.
13. Permit the granting of credit to Cuba for the purchase of products in the U.S. market, with the exception of agricultural products for which credit is prohibited by law.

A better title name

A better title name for the new 2015 Robert B. Reich book would have been “Horror Stories About U.S. Capitalism.”

American capitalism does not need to be “saved.” It needs to be replaced with something that better serves an average citizen. Current U.S. capitalism only serves very well the millionaires, billionaires and extremely large corporations. Average citizens come last.

At the end of Part I, Robert B. Reich states “What I have described is not the same as corruption.” I couldn't disagree more. Current American capitalism is the most corrupt economic and political system ever devised by man during modern times.


In a recent 2015 city (where I live) election a “record” turnout was recorded by the county Registrar of Elections. The record was that only 14% of eligible voters bothered to participate in the election. Americans no longer care about the capitalist system that has been imposed on them by big money interests. They vote with their feet by staying away in droves. Only 11% of U.S. citizens say that the U.S. Congress is doing a very good job of governing the nation.

Cuba blames US for migrant crisis at Costa Rica border

Cuba has blamed US policy for a surge in migration from the island to the United States.

The Cuban foreign ministry said US laws dating back to the Cold War encouraged illegal emigration.

The statement was published as almost 2,000 Cuban migrants remained stranded on the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua.

The Cuban migrants say they want to reach the US, but Nicaragua has so far denied them passage north.

Wet foot, dry foot

Under the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act, Cuban nationals can become residents in the US much more easily than applicants from other countries.

M.L.B. Picks Tampa Bay Rays to Play Possible Exhibition in Cuba

The New York Times

MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT

NOV. 13, 2015

If a major league baseball team plays a spring training game in Cuba next year, it will be the Tampa Bay Rays.

Commissioner Rob Manfred chose theRays by picking a ball out of a bin at Major League Baseball’s offices on Park Avenue in Manhattan on Friday afternoon. There were so many teams, including the Mets, the Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers, eager to play in Cuba, because of the extra visibility it would give their clubs that Manfred decided to hold a lottery.

The game would represent another significant moment in the continuing efforts by the United States and Cuba to normalize relations.

If you are registered as an Independent in the state of Florida, and you want to vote for Bernie, you have to temporarily register as a Democrat in order to vote for him. I urge you to do that. You may change it back to Independent after the 2016 Florida Presidential Preference Primary, if you so desire.

What Donald Trump did not tell the American people in the GOP presidential contenders debates

On the date Trump Plaza opened in Atlantic City in 1984, Donald Trump stood in a dark topcoat on the casino floor celebrating his new investment as the finest building in the city and possibly the nation. Thirty years later, the Trump Plaza folded, leaving some one thousand employees without jobs. Trump, meanwhile was on Twitter claiming he had “nothing to do with Atlantic City” and praising himself for his “great timing” in getting out of the investment. (Saving Capitalism, for the Many, not for the Few, Robert B. Reich)

JG: Trump has already screwed the American people once, and he will do it again if you install him in the White House. American capitalism is no longer serving the nation very well. It is currently being run for the benefit of millionaires and billionaires (like Trump) and for the benefit of the large corporations.

BTW, American capitalism is not worth saving!

I beg to disagree with Robert Reich's latest book


See the above graphic for the official title of his book.

Robert Reich wants to convince you that capitalism is for the many, not for the few.

DON'T you believe him!

In only the first 26 pages of the book, he gives us dozens, if not over a hundred cases, where Americans were and are being screwed by the USA's capitalists of the 18th, 19th, 20th & 21 first centuries.

Who is the screwer and who is the screwee?

The top 1% of the capitalist elites is the one doing the screwing and the bottom 99% (average Americans) is the the one receiving a huge & fat cock up their collective ass.

I will come back when I finish reading the book for my official final sentence on the book.

Did you know that when the U.S. Constitution was written there were more slaves than free persons?

Today slavery still persists. The capitalist pass laws every day to continue the slavery and exploitation of average folks. It is innate in capitalism to defraud, scam and “screw” people. Dishonesty and capitalism are synonyms.

I will not see it, but a July 14, 1879 and its accompanying guillotine will come to the USA one day. Capitalists should be very worried & concerned.

Thomas Jefferson said it best: “A little revolution, every now and then, is a good thing.”

World No. 3 Cuba aiming for WBSC Premier12 crown


Monday, October 26, 2015

Cuba will compete in Taiwan in Group A and will have to face host and world No. 4 Chinese Taipei, No. 5 Netherlands, No. 7 Canada, No. 9 Puerto Rico and No. 11 Italy. The four best from Group A will be paired with the four best from Group B in the quarter-final knockout stage.

Cuba’s first Premier12 global battle will be against Canada, the 2015 Pan-Am Games champions, at Taichung Intercontinental Stadium on Tuesday, 10 November.

In preparing for Premier12, world No. 8 South Korea (Group B) will host Cuba for two games that will officially open the new Gocheok Sky Dome, the first domed baseball stadium in the nation, on 4-5 November.
