JG : U.S. citizens who rely on Medicaid are the poorest of the poor. Shame on the GOP and President Trump. It is very apparent that Trump and the GOP are going to funnel taxpayer money to the TOP 1%. It is the XXIth Century equivalent of "Let Them Eat Cake."
RESIT TRUMP & THE GOP!
The new coin has a number of features that make it much more difficult to counterfeit.
12-sided – its distinctive shape makes it instantly recognizable, even by touch.
Bimetallic – it is made of two metals. The outer ring is gold coloured (nickel-brass) and the inner ring is silver coloured (nickel-plated alloy).
Latent image – it has an image like a hologram that changes from a ‘£’ symbol to the number '1' when the coin is seen from different angles.
Micro-lettering – it has very small lettering on the lower inside rim on both sides of the coin. One pound on the obverse “heads” side and the year of production on the reverse “tails” side, for example 2016 or 2017.
Milled edges – it has grooves on alternate sides.
Hidden high security feature – a high security feature is built into the coin to protect it from counterfeiting in the future.

The Freedom Caucus are extreme GOP conservative Right-Wingers. A better name for them is Enemies of the Working Class
The urgent problem of the genocidal Israeli government is solved by the UN security council having enough cojones to send a multilateral military force to depose Netanyahu and impose a Two Nation solution
So, the Israeli Zionists will continue with their daily genocide and the world will continue weeping.
Benjamin Netanyahu must be removed from office by any means necessary.
Germany, France.the United Kingdom, Canada, and the EU should assemble such a multinational military force and leave the Yankee imperialists out of it.
JUST DO IT!

Cuba Journal does not support the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
Repeal Donald Trump & the GOP.

The Washington Post reports the following:
"Meanwhile, a new analysis by the Congressional Budget Office released Thursday evening showed that changes House leaders made to the bill on Monday don’t alter a projection that 24 million more Americans would be uninsured by 2026 under the bill. In addition, the updated bill would cut the deficit by $150 billion over the next decade— nearly $200 billion less than the earlier version of the legislation."
JG: I doubt very much that those 24 million Americans are going to be MAGA supporters. I have come to the conclusion that Trump is nothing but a con man.

The first semi-final game of the 2017 World Baseball Classic is now history. You will be very surprised with who won.
The USA will face Japan tonight in the second semifinal game.
I predict that Japan will win that game. They have a superb team this year.

Trump is a millionaire capitalist. He does not represent the working class.
He could care less about the people who do the real work.
The so-called Health Care legislation that his party is proposing in the U.S. House of Representatives SUCKS big time.

Granma said that A la pelota le está prohibido perder bochornosamente (In baseball, it is prohibited to lose embarrassingly).
Juventud Rebelde said El equipo de Holanda dejó a Cuba fuera del Clásico. (The team from The Netherlands leaves Cuba out of the Classic,)
Cuba was eliminated from the second round of the WBC, and goes home full of shame. Not good.
Should Cuba return in 2021? It is very doubtful. The level of their baseball play has gone steadily downhill. Very sad.
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Juventud Rebelde newspaper @ 9:52 a.m. this morning:
Cae Cuba nuevamente ante el equipo japonés, en un partido en el cual estuvieron encima en el marcador en varias oportunidades. Se reducen, de esta forma, las posibilidades de clasificación a una victoria sobre Holanda y luego un partido de desempate.
JG: Translation: Cuba falls again to the Japanese team, in a game where they were on top several times. The possibilities of classifying have been reduced to this: victory over The Netherlands [tonight] and later on a tie breaker game win for Cuba.
In my humble opinion, the odds are a against Cuba. The Netherlands has a very strong team.
We will have to wait and see.

But first they have to start playing better. They are lethargic and their pitching has been very poor. Also, too many walks.
This is the current standings in Pool E according to Bleacher Report:
#1 Japan: One win, no losses. 1-0
#2 The Netherlands: One win, one loss. 1-1.
#3 Israel: One win one loss. 1-1.
#4 Cuba: 0 wins, one loss. 0-1.
If Cuba were to upset Japan (a very tall order), tomorrow morning at 6:00 am, there would be a triple tie for second place.
How would this triple tie be resolved? I have no idea.
So, if Team Cuba continues playing badly tomorrow morning, Team Cuba will have to go home empty handed.
They have to have a MIRACLE tomorrow morning. They have to win against Japan.
I am still rooting for Cuba, and I wish them good luck tomorrow.
Por desgracia para Cuba el ataque fue un fracaso.

Japan 8, The Netherlands 6.
Dominican Republic 10, Colombia 3.
Puerto Rico 9, Italy 6.
Still in progress:
Top of the eighth:
USA 8, Canada 0.
Be prepared for bad news, but don't give up hope.
If you look at the box-score of the game, Cuban pitchers gave up eight bases on balls against the Zionists. They were building their own graves.

Juventud Rebelde: El pecado contra Israel

I will attempt not to fall asleep. I hope that I will last the three hours or more of the game.
Gameday has not posted yet who is going to pitch for Cuba.
For Israel, Jason Marquis will open the game.
To go to Gameday, go here:
Cepeda bats third, and Despaigne fourtth. Cepeda is the Designated hitter.
10:07 Waiting for Gameday to start.
10:09 Gameday starts.
Noelvis Entenza is the opening pitcher for Cuba.
Connection problems with my laptop.
Home Run by Alfredo Despaigne. Cuba 1, Israel 0.
El Caballo de los Caballos comes through for Team Cuba, AGAIN!
Two completed innings. We go to the top of the third.
Cuba has two hits, Israel, no hits.
The Cuban espresso coffee is keeping me awake,
Three complete innings have gone by. Same score. Entenza has pitched well, up to this point.
Alfredo Despaigne grounds out in his second at bat of the night.
William Saavedra gets a hit. Team Cuba has three hits. Israel 0 hits.
Noelvis Entenza has three bases on balls.
Israel collects its first hit.
Israel has its first run. Game is tied 1-1. Is Entenza getting tired?
Half of the game has been completed.
Yoennis Yera comes in to pitch for Cuba, relieving Entenza.
Five innings have been completed. Game still tied 1-1.
Alfredo Despaigne hit by pitch. Intentional?
Jason Marquis, the Israeli pitcher is being replaced.
Zack Thornton is the new pitcher for Israel.
Yoennis Yera has thrown 18 pitches for Cuba. 11 were strikes.
Israel has collected its sencond hit of the game. One man on base.
Yera gives one BB. Two Israelis on bases. First & second bases.
Hit by Zack Borenstein. One run scores. Israel 2, Cuba 1.
Jose Angel Garcia comes in to pitch for Cuba. Yera goes to the showers.
Israel has runners on first and third.
Another hit, another run for Israel.
Cuba better start improving on their hitting.
Ivan Moinelo is coming in to pitch for Cuba. The relievers are failing Team Cuba. They better get their shit together, or they will lose the game.
Cuba has to remember that Israel is a proxy team for the USA Yankees. They have two teams in the tournament. There is only one native born Israeli in the Zionist team. The rest are USA Yankees.
Top of the seventh inning. I hope that this is Cuba's lucky 7. No suck luck for the weak. Cuba does not produce. It does not look good for the criollos, but they still have two more innings to produce runs. Keep your fingers crossed and your rabbit's foot in your pocket.
OMG! More walks by Cuba's pitchers.
But, two consecutive strikeouts by Moinelo. That is very good.
But Cuba has to score more runs. It is very deficient in that area today. You win games by scoring runs.
Good hit by pinch hitter Delgado. Cespedes has been weak in hitting.
Good pinch runner for Cuba on first base. Victor Victor is like Speedy Gonzalez.
Cepeda walks and Victor Victor goes to second base. There is still hope.
El Caballo at bat.
El Caballo walks and the bases are full of Cubiches.
But the threat is a bust. Only one more inning for Team Cuba.
One more walk. Later on he advances to third.
I have a bad feeling that Cuba is going to lose this game against the fake Israelis. Fakery is all over the place in the USA.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said U.S. forces in Syria were "invaders" and he had yet to see "anything concrete" emerge from U.S. President Donald Trump's vow to prioritize the fight against Islamic State.

JG: Donald Trump is just like Barack Obama. He sends the U.S. military into foreign countries without previous authorization from the U.S. Congress.
Whatever happened to the U.S. Constitution? Expect more undeclared wars from Trump in the next four years. Wars are huge businesses in capitalist USA.

Win or lose, I am very proud of Team Cuba at the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

GOOD LUCK CUBA!

WORKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
The date that is marked at the top is today, March 9.
I will let you know the score in the morning, because the game would end around 1:00 am. By 10:30 pm, my eyes begin to close.
If the Affordable Care Act is repealed, it will cause thousands of deaths and the GOP will be liable for their criminal negligence
Revenge will be sweet.
My dad used to say: "The paper, [meaning newspaper], will take anything that you put into it."
But, we now live in the Internet age.
I can't even remember the last time I bought a printed newspaper. By the time it is printed, the "news" on it are very, very old.
A right-wing Internet outfit named the Washington Examiner has outdone the Miami gusanos (i.e.worms) at Babalu Blog in inventing fake news about Cuba.

Inning horribilis is finally over. I am very sad as to what is happening, but these types of games happen in baseball.

With men on second and third, Guillermo Aviles, brings them home with a hit. 7-4.
