Goodbye, Hero Soldier Thomas Borge. You tried when others didn’t give a shit

Here was one soldier that was a real hero to me Tomas Borge Martinez, 81, co-founder of Nicaraguan Sandinistas because he wasn't one of those stupid trailer trash boys and girls who sign up mainly to get the GI benefits and to strut around proclaiming themselves to be some sort of hero when they aren't that at all. Instead, Tomas Borge was a true soldier hero of his country.   Against all odds, Tomas Borge has died in old age. Now that you've read the corporate and US government bullshit about Tomas Borge in the first link in this article, perhaps you might be interested in reading another point of view to that crap? Perhaps...? Reflections on the Death of the Sandinista Leader- The Personal Revenge of Tomas Borge. I have my own views about him since I kind of met him somewhat personally, when I first visited Nicaragua back in 1985 during a trip across much of Central America where I ran across many other soldiers at 'work' as well as Borge himself, who was head of the Sandinista army at that time.

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief "witnesses" against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don't work cheap and b) don't actually work. "They" being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie... Semper... Fi... Bitch) They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of "Freedom". And they're still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit. Any of y'all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez... Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam's Army and financed al Qa'eda. They don't give a rat's ass about your lives any more than they did the 2800 they had killed on 9/11 or the 300 Marines they had murdered in Beirut or the uncounted thousands of Nicaraguan priests, nuns, nurses, doctors, teachers, orphan children and other civilians they "liberated" with American-bought bullets to the heads. They won't give any more of a damn about your lives than the lives of the Iraqi and Afghan civilians they had you murder. If it comes down to a choice of them facing the hangman themselves or scapegoating you the way they did their Other Puppets, you'll be stretching the rope. It's just the way the coward bitches do business. Ollie North has been rewarded for his selling out "his fellow" Marines by being paid several million dollars a year to LIE for his whoremasters, on a Fox News show. Gunny Bob Newman has a similar Whore deal for much less money on Hate Talk Radio. If either of them were to actually, for the first time in their sorry worthless misspent lives, MAN THE HELL UP AND TELL THE GOD-DAMN TRUTH, they would be sold out the way their Masters sold out Manny Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama, the top level financiers of the Medellin Cartel... Betraying your countrymen and your oaths is Okey Dokey with them, but betraying the Whoremasters isn't permitted.

Rule of law & American Exceptionalism

The extrem(ist)e lack of the first puts any claim of the latter as the very essence of arrogant falsehood. We're told that America, and ONLY America, actually deserves to run the entire world because we're better than them. What's that sound? Damn, I just heard every Right Wing Jingoist my-country-right-or-wrong, Love-it-or-leave-it, we're-fighting-for-your-freedom-of-speech-so-you-better-shut-your-cake-hole-or-we'll-shut-it-for-you "patriotic" TeaTard Racist closing his mind. They just snapped their minds shut simultaneously. with a deafening roar. Consider the case of one Luis Posada Carriles For those of our readers unfamiliar with the Castellano (Spanish) naming scheme, Carriles was his mother's maiden name. His surname is Posada. A terrorist paid by the U.S. Regime over decades to murder, to overthrow Democracy wherever it reared its lovely head. His CIA "handler" was one Donald Gregg, an American Coward who paid public money, without public oversight and, like fellow Terrorist George Bush Gregg was recently honored in Colorado Springs. Seems the local "conservatives" can't get enough of Babykilling Freaks. (They're hosting Sarah Palin later this month) So, Colorado Springs and El Paso County show a lot of solidarity with Terrorists like Gregg, and his "asset" Posada. El Paso County Texas too, where the Republican prosecutor, in a show trial, charged this mass murdering TERRORIST with "lying to immigration officials" a charge compared to charging Hitler with Disorderly Conduct and then dropping the charges. I spent more time in the El Paso County Jail for talking back to the PIGS. Guess if I actually were a murderer or something they would have simply welcomed me to their club. Pigs are like that. Fellow CIA "assets" handled by Gregg and his friends Rumsfeld, George HW Bush, (before and AFTER he became President in charge of Vice and subsequently Commander in Thief) Ollie North, Richard Secord, a rogues gallery indeed... But the "assets" list included, until they became too much of an embarrassment, Saddam Hussein, The Medellin Cartel, and Panama Puppet Manuel Noriega. Their current assets include Nouri al Maliki, Satrap of Baghdad, Mauricio Funes, of the Satrapy El Salvador, Felipe Calderon, Puppet Dictator of Mexico, Eden Pastora, Babykilling Contra leader, Ricardo Martinelli Panamian Sock-puppet, and the list grows longer. Human rights slaughtered right along with the humans who claimed them. Posada was just one of many, and was charged, and acquitted, in the same El Paso County Texas Kangaroo Court system which acquits cops of murder routinely, and enables the same PIGS to beat, imprison on false charges (automatic conviction in their courts on those charges) and KILL people for the crimes of talking back or wearing a brown skin. It's true what they say, Thieves of a Feather, Cowards Run in Packs, and the Counties of El Paso Texas and El Paso Colorado glorify, fund, and enable Terrorist BITCHES like Posada and Gregg and Bush and Palin. Have a nice babykilling.

“Red Dawn” a classic? Gag me…

I was researching why (I already know, just looking for confirmation) this piece of cinematic sewage keeps replaying on certain channels.To drum up war business of course. But I came across a review on a Right Wing website that the "classic" Red Dawn and Extreme Prejudice and a couple of other Death-Porn flicks by the same production company only show on "conservative" Cable channels and no MSM channel would touch them. "Lefty Censorship". How about this scenario instead? They sucked when they first came out and they've been sucking ever since. Assassination and "Kill Immigrant" flicks belong in the same genre as the "Six Days in Fallujah" and "Call of Duty" porn games where the players or viewers get to masturbate to images of people being murdered. "Red Dawn" and "Extreme Prejudice" were made to bolster the Reagan/Bush Administrations' use of the Murdering Contra Mercenary Terrorists against the People of Nicaragua. Meanwhile REAL soldiers gave me this review of it, back then... "Man that is f...in' retarded. We're sitting there in Germany facing the Soviets, Reagan and Bush playing games trying to make them paranoid, telling them AND the German people that a limited tactical nuclear exchange in Germany would be "winnable"... doing everything possible to convince the Soviets that they're crazy, and they put this piece of shit into the mix. Get them thinking EVERYBODY in America is just as goofy as they (Reagan) are". See, you can't sustain a war without Hate. You can't justify spending more money than your nation will ever hope to have on "defense" spending if you don't have at least a perception of a war. If you don't have the "America Under Constant Attack" for real, you have to Make Shit Up. Otherwise the "Defense" industry would shut down and the bastards would have to actually EARN money through actual work. facing a shortage of hordes of brown-skinned terrorists out to Destroy America, they have to conflate Immigrant Workers with the increasingly mythical al Qa'eda. Re-enter: Red Dawn. Where the Haters can sit on their couches with the remote in one hand and the pecker in the other, masturbating to the idea of killing "illegals".

Speaking of Nicaragua…

The Artist, formerly known as School of the Americas, THE largest and best funded State-sponsored Terrorist Training Camp in the world, whose alumni include some of Colorado Springs cops, (as I understand, some of the "Homeless Outhrach" officers) used some of the Trainee Terrorists to disperse and arrest and beat down peaceful protesters at their "school" last week. You know, give the cadets a little first hand experience at beating down civilians. Kind of like these guys. Real Freedom Fighters there. They fight freedom whenever it rears its lovely head. Then, far from being embarrassed at their outrageous lies about fighting for Freedom, they instead send one of their number to make retarded comments about anybody who, unlike him or his FELLOW SCUMSUCKING PIGS, keep the memory alive. What's the matter, PIGS, Can't handle it when people point out your lies and hypocrisy, you have to send a puke like Stephen Patch in to talk smack? Or have the ACLU put down like mad dogs for not joining in with the Pigloving Sucks who applaud the actions of the Fascist Storm Troopers. Real wonderful people, yep. We'll get some more actions like that as long as Some People, who love licking pig jackboots, not only refuse to take a stand but attempt to demonize people who DO. Sad that some of them, and here's another Nicaragua tie-in, work for CATHOLIC charities in town. You remember the Catholic Church, right? Some of the S.O.T.A. graduates ran STILL RUN a Terrorist Operation against people in Nicaragua and El Salvador and Guatemala and Honduras and Costa Rica and Mexico,Death Squads against Catholic organizations who promote social justice. Won't find any of the Colorado Springs Gestapo or their accomplices, even in the Catholic Church, protesting against that. Even though some of the most famous acts of terrorism the U.S. Military and their S.O.T.A. graduates committed in El Salvador and Nicaragua were attacks on Catholic schools, hospitals and orphanages. Yep, them Contras sho does love them some babykillin', and with the full support of the Colorado Springs establishment. Like I wrote, we'll be seeing more of these State-Sponsored Terrorist Acts here.

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking very expensive videos and photographs of Other People moving the shards around. Much the same way they're paid to watch and take pictures while other people bury the Dead "shards" in Haiti. Through public funding for their private "efforts". Some have seen fit to criticize my frequent use of Capitalization and italics and bold type and ComBinatiOns Of tHem but some people need a little help finding juicy nuggets amidst the kibble. Both are Nourishing Mind Food but the juicy bits are more fun. Sometimes. Some of the people have difficulty seeing, which is a condition with which I can easily relate. Others are just kind of inured to reading and hearing Bullshit from the likes of Glenn Beck and need a little help finding emphasis in NORMAL thoughts. It's not that Glenn Beck is mentally defective, it's what he's paid to say, in the Corporate anticipation of the Audience being mentally defective. In a way, though, the situation in Ethiopia and Haiti is the same case, revisited. "Conservative" (their own code word for Racist Right Wing Extremists) Pundits insist that black people are incapable of governing themselves so it's up to the Great White Father in Washington to guide and assist and let's face it, outright Rule Over the poor little darkie savages. But Ethiopia has for several occasions been the richest nation on earth and in cumulative time they managed to do it for longer than the Americas have actually experienced European Rule. Intermittently because the times Ethiopia has been devastatingly poor have been periods of colonial rule. Like the Romans exacting tribute from them, and in the past couple of centuries European and European-American Corporate Rule turning Their nation into Our plantation. Same with Haiti. When the U.S. went to war with Hawaii and deposed their "tyrannical"

Gunny Bob, Malkin, Dr Laura, y’all hate speech traitors, come clean

How MUCH are you making, personally, apiece from the death of each soldier, airman, sailor and Marine killed in the Corporate For-profit Wars of Conquest? The ones your Corporate Masters pay you pathetic low-life professional Liars to promote for them? Not counting the Civilians killed, imprisoned, tortured at the orders of Your Masters, of course, because you Racist Bitches don't consider Iraqi and Afghan PEOPLE to be even human, especially not the Babies that you're most famous for having gotten killed. Corporate Whores like Palin, Malkin, Coulter, O'Reilly, Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, North, "Gunny" Bob Newman, get paid quite a lot of money to sit behind microphones, in well guarded studios of course, start with a Lie that they're Working Class Americans instead of actors paid to portray Working Class Americans, and tell shameless lie after shameless lie to promote their Corporate Wars and other Corporate agenda. Rush and O'Reilly get a hundred and forty-two grand per each dead soldier. How much are you scumsucking sellouts getting? Dr Laura is in the median income group on that, along with "Gunny" Bob, Malkin, Coulter, Daniel Whitney the liberal-arts major Yankee who portrays Southern Trailer Trash "Larry the Cable Guy"...the "lesser" and inferior lights aka Dim Bulbs of an extremely dim "conservative" paid actors movement... Rush and Bill-do each have scored over a BILLION dollars promoting the wars and the under"lying" currents of hatred in order to prop up their Corporate Masters. Fox "news" which hosts all of the above, although some have "independent" backing from the same Corporate Overlords who run FOX. That means, popping up the calculator to get a precise reading of it, starting with the LOW figure of a billion, what they usually admit to, and of course not counting their undeclared income... Dividing by 7000 which is the low figure for U.S. Military personnel murdered BY THE FOR-PROFIT WARS OF CONQUEST SUPPORTED AND ENABLED BY THESE LYING PRICKS AND BITCHES... $142,857.14 Per Human Life that Rush is being paid, about an equal amount from O'Reilly. Ollie North has an extremely guarded fast-shuffle method of hiding his income, from the same sources. So, Dr Laura, Michelle, especially super-patriotic super Marine "Gunny".. come clean, just how much Blood Money are you lying Whores getting for the blood you have shed, by proxy...? Especially Gunny, how many pieces of silver have YOU personally obtained selling your Former Comrades to their deaths? Ollie North, your patron saint, made even more money by directly selling arms to the people who subsequently killed your Former Comrades in Beirut... then continued to make money directly by selling them MORE arms afterward. He's a cold, calculating Murderer and Gunny, since you're in his corner, So Are YOU. You and your fellow Lying Whores should pay everything you own to the orphans, widows, brothers, sisters, family, of everybody you've had killed with your Hate Speech LIES, both American Military and any foreign citizens. Double amounts the ones whose BABIES you've had killed. Renounce your Treason and your Terroristic Wars of Conquest. Then, you especially, Gunny, write a note of apology

Catholic Global War On People who Don’t Comply With Corporate Rulers

Some of the issues were very publicly addressed by John Paul II. Not as publicly by Benedict but even Pope Joey Ratz doesn't give blessings of the church, and thus absolution to Catholic chaplains and other soldiers. Abortion. That's a big hot issue not only with Catholics but Protestants. In the run-up to the Bombing (in which the Air Force were "first to fight" just a side note) and eventual occupation and enslavement errr... "liberation and nation building" of Iraqis the news came out, even on American stations, that Iraqi doctors were being called on to deliver late-term babies by Caesarean Section or induced labor, to prevent "miscarriages" also known by the medical term Spontaneous Abortion, caused not spontaneously but by the stress of such Liberating "Shock and Awe" events as aerial bombardment. That takes the term "spontaneous" out of the picture. It's Induced Abortion caused by actions of the United States Military. Why I got off on this tangent was a series of comments supporting the Murder Campaign errr... Wars of Liberation and Nation Building by a gentleman (I think) who professes to be a Good Catholic. I mean, even the current Pope, who isn't a Leftist or even a Moderate Rightist, doesn't endorse the war, with that one being a strong issue. There's other issues, the Anti-Catholic murders performed by Catholic Mercenaries in the war against the People of Nicaragua in the 1980s and, really, still continuing. Some of those killed were nuns, priests, students and teachers at Catholic schools, doctors nurses and patients at a Catholic Hospital, children at a Catholic Orphanage run by American priests and nuns. That's pretty stout. If the WarPigs didn't want to take on the name of AntiChrist they should have left that strictly alone. Those who are Catholic, well, you've got a lot of Ave Marias and PaterNosters to say, plenty of bead-clicking and petitions for absolution.

Panama Banana say that three times real fast…

But there was a strike against the Government run Banana Industry which unlike the traditional "Banana Republic" isn't a government owned by the Banana Industry. Close enough though, they're bought and Paid (on long credit terms) for by American Fat-Cats who believed and their descendants still do that their money and American (not Rich) soldiers providing the Assassinations necessary to maintain that money entitles them to own the whole world. Especially those nations physically closest to our Arbitrarily assigned borders. By the way, Corporate Warfare and Corporate Welfare are two of the key components of Fascism. The government forces attempted to take the Union leaders prisoner, and killed two union members and wounded 120 others (by Government count) three of whom are in hospitals in comas. And under arrest. Probably for violently attacking a Police Billy Club or Gun Muzzle with their foreheads. Repeatedly throwing their heads under the stomping Jack-boots of the Police even after being handcuffed. The workers, Indigenous people mostly, (that's code for "held in perpetual povertyslavery on the basis of Race" by the way) responded by taking 4 of the cops prisoner. Only the Right Wing code for that is "hostages". One of the causes of the strike was the Puppet Government of Panama (guess which American Corporate Government holds the puppet strings) trying, of course not on American orders, that would be silly to contemplate... passed laws forbidding Union Activity especially strikes. The government "graciously" suspended enforcement of the law, temporarily until they can find some way to get enough American gunboats and Marines into the country to put the Union down for good errr... I mean, find some way to Legally enforce it. Panama wasn't the Original "Banana Republic", although it follows the model, have U.S. Corporations, backed by the Military, which they've exempted themselves from paying the bills thereof, incite a "revolution" in the country which doesn't have strong laws to force the people to surrender their lands, resources, freedoms and especially their labor to the corporate Overlords. The "revolutionaries" run into resistance from the non-cooperative government, then call for the United States government to send soldiers to come and rescue them. It's how the Republic of Texas was formed. How the U.S. took over Hawaii. Puerto Rico. Panama. Iraq.... How we got a third of the land area of the Republic of Mexico after our Former Puppet General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez de Santa Ana didn't provide quite the level of cooperation they had expected. Why Panama was re-taken from the Former Puppet Dictator Manuel Noriega refused to cooperate with the Reagan-Bu'ush Regime, in yet another arranged Coup. Panama was taken from the Republic of Colombia in the exact same manner because Colombia was leaning toward allowing a French firm to build the Canal (which was going to be built regardless) Noriega helped finance the Banana Republic attempted coup in Nicaragua allegedly by being a go-between for Oliver North and the Medellin cocaine growing and marketing industry. The part about the North connection is "erased"

WOOT! Kissinger War-Crimes evidence coming out!

This one a communication FROM his Royal Satanic Lowness to the puppet leadership of the Chilean Massacres in 1976. That would be in the final year of the Noble Reign of King Gerald of Ford. You remember how Bush the Elder and Bush The Chimp accused Iraq of hiding WMDs and War Criminals... and we on the Left (the ones who are still accused of being Wrong and of course Stupid because we questioned their fake assumptions) published a map of the one country on earth which has more of each class of WMD than the rest of the world combined and also harbors more war criminals than the rest of the world combined? with the headline "We Found 'em!" ...it's a map of the United States... Henry Kissinger is only one of many. But he's a HUGE fish. Pals around with Terrorists like Secord, North and Poindexter, who after betraying America and Americans in their pursuit of Empire have been given Government Jobs (and pardons for their treason) North works for the Ministry of Propaganda as a so-called "journalist" on DumFox Snooze with a show called "war stories". Shielded from prosecution by Executive Order from the "freedom" loving George Bush jr. (the Chimpleton) Reagan, Ford and Nixon are in Hell fellating Saddam Hussein. Nobody wants to extradite them though. That leaves the biggest Despotic Mass Murder in recent history to be Kissinger.

Republican Party of El Salvador to lose its throne this Sunday

The Republican Party of El Salvador (ARENA), just like the Republican Party of the US, is a party of the death squads. As such, they have ruled for 20 years after inheriting the defeat of the Salvadoran Revolution by the US government. See about their coming loss of throne in this Sunday's elections. The Death Cries of the Salvadoran Right. However the defeat probably is not much of defeat in actuality, because FMLN candidate, Mauricio Funes, is more than likely as about as Left Wing as Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, which is not very. We can look for the new FMLN regime to stumble about in the wilderness with many words against the US, but little actual rebellion. That has been the Daniel Ortega formula for holding onto power for the clique around him, and as a result, Nicaragua is in a Hellish Purgatory of inaction today. One can hardly blame the beaten populations of Nicaragua and El Salvador for not being able to push for more. After all they fought the Evil Empire for decades at great loss of life and limb... literally. No matter who was to win in El Salvador's elections the Salvadoran people still have the US death squads (the Pentagon) to contend with ultimately. Unfortunately little will probably have changed when the Republican Party of El Salvador loses its throne this Sunday. Let us hope that that is nothing more than my own pessimistic reading of what will result and that in actuality all of Central American will begin to tilt out of the orbit of the US Empire's total control with Funes' victory? We can only hope that the people will finally begin to gain some real liberation from the squalor that The Empire has put them in?

The real Sandinistas are fed up with Daniel Ortega’s pathetic regime

There is so little hope in the pathetic Daniel Ortega... that Nicaragua's foremost Sandinista musician has withdrawn permission for this sad sack cabal around Ortega, the current Nicaraguan President, to continue to represent itself as Sandinista by using his extremely popular music at their events. See news item, Sandinistas split over revolution hymn Another fitting image about the sad state of affairs in Nicaragua that left an impression one me, was to see capitalist advertising for an American company hanging from the Nicaraguan National Assembly building! It would kind of be like seeing WalMart being allowed to hang its company's advertisement from the White House! Or even worse, having a Chinese bank hanging its banners there. What a vivid sign of how degraded and debased Nicaragua has become from the continued American domination over its national life.

Delinquencia vs Los Evangelicos and those caught in between

I haven't yet written anything about my Nicaragua trip and I hesitated to do so without giving it some thought. Just what did I see when I was there and how to explain it to my fellow Americans... lol? This was my second trip to Central America and my first since 1985, when I came across a universe devastated by US-funded armed warfare. What had ensued in the 23 years since? What I found was a land full of delinquents (common street criminals), hordes of Bible toting Evangelicals (funded from the US), and those trapped in the 'crossfire' between these 2 groups of 'warriors'. Yes, it was almost a daily occurrence to be mugged by those carrying the Holy Book, or to be picked off by panhandlers, beggars, pick pockets, muggers, etc. In fact, we spent much time with the family of my friend, Rafa. The concerns of his sister, Coco, were about a man who pulls down his pants weekly or so, and shits in th middle of the street in front of the house! I saw on another occasion, a woman bathing herself nude in the median strip of a 4 lane highway! And on 2 separate occasions, saw live power lines fall into the middle of the street amidst children playing. The lines were left that way for a day or so, then duct taped!!! back up to fall once again the next week ahead! Amongst such chaos, come the sale people for Jesus in humble groups of head bowed youth talking it up for God. So what about all the people in between living in barrios of total neglect? What about the young people who did not want to be forced to choose between the 2 groups of religious fanatics and criminal gangs? The hordes of youth whose parents earn between $2-$7 a day? How to explain their world to you, Fellow American? I can't do it, so I have turned to a Nicaraguan group called Grupo Armado This work is called 'Deeds, Not Words' and captures the essence of a country sick to death of all the rhetoric of the Right Wing- US allied politicos. I encourage you to explore on youtube other videos of this group titled songs like 'Racist' or 'Nica (Nicaraguan) in Costa Rica'. You can get a feel for the rage the youth have about their prospects in Nicaragua through listening some to this Latin heavy metal group. I will write more soon about the further impressions I got in my journey with my daughter to Central America, Land of the Volcanoes. But the fear of the rampant crime by 'delinquents' runs rampant itself throughout all the countries of Central America. This is a result of US government foreign policy in the region more than any other reason. It has produced poverty and

Life not that great in the US for many Hispanic immigrants

''I hate Fidel Castro, but does that mean I should work in a cafeteria?'' she said. ``I am 44 years old, and the first and only time in my life I went hungry was in the United States. Here (in Cuba), I live in a four-bedroom house and have a car. Over there, I had to live in an apartment the size of a table.'' That was a brief excerpt from an article in the reactionary American paper, the Miami Herald... Some Cuban emigrants head back home Yes, the fact of the matter is that life in the us is not that great for many, many Latin American immigrants, and they would be much happier if the US government would just stop fucking over their own home countries. That, of course, the US corporate elites that run the US will never, ever do. Their profits are dependent on running much of the rest of the world into the ground. I just got back from visiting such a country, the country of Nicaragua, which the US has been destroying for many long decades. I will write more about what I saw and experienced in the weeks ahead, for Nicaragua is a prime example of why we must oppose the despicable bipartisan foreign policies of the US government. You might be planning to desperately vote for Barack Obama hoping for some sort of change towards decency? You are just being manipulated and deluding yourself if you think that the 'defeat' of the Republicans is all that is really necessary, for much more must be accomplished before change can come about. Cuba is no absolute paradise, but compared to countries like Nicaragua it certainly is a paradise. At least the people do not have to live in squalor and misery even though the US has spent decades trying to break the people by waging an economic war on them. That is no small accomplishment! Viva Cuba!

Nicaragua feedback

MANAGUA, NICARAGUA- My daughter and I have been in Nicaragua for a little less than three weeks now, and I am glad to have successfully gotten my surgery done and over with. In addition, I have visited with my friend, Rafael, and his family, and have gotten to see Nicaragua for the first time since my visit here in 1985. A lot has certainly changed, and I will write more about that when I get back inside The States. For right now, I am staying busy with "home schooling" my daughter by being her tour guide, of sorts, here. Next week we hit the beach! We have already been to the mountains and been to a volcano, plus toured the rich island estates by motor boat that are just outside Granada in Lake Nicaragua, the 10th largest fresh water lake in the world. There is a lot to do and too little time to actually do it all in, not to mention too little money besides. Actually, my daughter would be happy if she was just to stay in the barrio and play all day with the neighborhood´s kids, but that is only part of her studies in "home school." We miss you all, and would have loved to be there alongside all of our friends and comrades to greet The Great Evil One who will bring his dark shadow to The Springs this week. Our trip to Nicaragua shows us why protesting this trash that ruins/ runs our country is so very important. Do must "protest" not for just for ourselves, but for the whole world. The world needs our activity and we have a responsibility to humanity to keep going against the current inside our own borders. Without "protesters" and our activities, nothing would be ever be changed for the better.

Nicaragua Nicaraguita!

Nicaragua Nicaraguita! Me and my kid will be heading out South in a couple of days to visit my good friend, Rafael, in his native land. We are both very excited to have the opportunity to visit with him once again, and wish him the right to visit with us in Colorado Springs again, too. We are all one people! NOTE*** The music in this video is now practically the official national anthem of Nicaragua,and rightfully so. Would that We the People of the United States, had a national song that was as beautiful as Nicaragua Nicaraguita. Instead, all we have is our ode to the military, The Blood Stained Banner. It is a shame.
