Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce in support of a Cuban consulate in the Tampa Bay Area


By Laurie Davison, Reporter

The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce is coming out in support of establishing a Cuban consulate in Tampa once the United States and Cuba reestablish diplomatic relations.

A resolution passed unanimously by the chamber's board said it would support the location of a consulate in Tampa or Hillsborough County, and that business leaders would like to see "Tampa return to its rightful and historical place as an economic engine" for facilitating trade with Cuba.

Chamber officials said there was a Cuban consulate in Ybor City before relations broke off between the two countries in 1961.

Evita & Che: "And the Money Kept Rolling In"



And the Money Kept Rolling In lyrics

[Che:]
Eva's pretty hands reached out and they reached wide
Now you may feel it should have been a voluntary cause
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling in, you don't ask how
Think of all the people guaranteed a good time now
Eva's called the hungry to her, open up the doors
Never been a fund like the Foundation Eva Peron

[Chorus:]

[Workers:]
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'

Rollin' on in, rollin' on in
Rollin' on in, rollin' on in
On in

[Che:]
Would you like to try a college education?
Own your landlord's house, take the family on vacation?
Eva and her blessed fund can make your dreams come true
Here's all you have to do my friends
Write your name and your dream on a card or a pad or a ticket
Throw it high in the air and should our lady pick it
She will change your way of life for a week or even two
Name me anyone who cares as much as Eva Peron

[chorus]

Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out

[Che:]
And the money kept rolling out in all directions
To the poor, to the weak, to the destitute of all complexions
Now cynics claim a little of the cash has gone astray
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron

[chorus]

Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out

[Che:]
Eva!!!
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron

[chorus]

Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out

This blog condemns & repudiates the politicking in the U.S. House of Representatives by Zionist WAR CRIMINAL Benjamin Netanyahu



Mr. Prime Minister: you have on your hands the blood of innocent Palestinian women and children in the Gaza Strip.

Your problems you have brought upon yourself  by your criminal activities in the Middle East.

Stop stealing the lands which belong to the Palestinian people.

The taxpayers of the USA should not spend any of our money on your criminal regime.

Your problems are your problems. Do not try to get the people of USA involved in your criminal activities.

Has Venezuela banned the second Cuban-American fascist in the U.S. Senate?

"The Venezuelan leader announced the [USA] embassy downsize in a thundering speech over the weekend, when he also read out a "terrorism list" of U.S. politicians, including former U.S. President George W. Bush and Senator Bob Menendez, banned from entering Venezuela."

(Reuters)

Venezuela tells U.S. embassy to downsize amid diplomatic tension

&
Venezuela President Maduro

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela on Monday ordered the U.S. embassy in Caracas to reduce its personnel from 100 to 17 amid a new diplomatic flare-up between the socialist government and its ideological foe to the north.

JG: When, shortly after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro told the U.S. to cut the size of its embassy staff in Havana, Dwight D. Eisenhower cut diplomatic relations between the two neighbors. What will El Negrito do? 

Syriza MP Costas Lapavitsas: To beat austerity Greece must break free from the euro [HEAR! HEAR!]

‘The Syriza government has paid a high price to remain alive
Things will be made even harder by the parlous state of the Greek economy.’ 
Photograph: Alkis Konstantinidis/Reuters

The agreement signed between Greece and the EU after three weeks of lively negotiations is a compromise reached under economic duress. Its only merit for Greece is that it has kept the Syriza government alive and able to fight another day. That day is not far off. Greece will have to negotiate a long-term financing agreement in June, and has substantial debt repayments to make in July and August. In the coming four months the government will have to get its act together to negotiate those hurdles and implement its radical programme. The European left has a stake in Greek success, if it is to beat back the forces of austerity that are currently strangling the continent.

White Sox legend, Cuba born Minnie Miñoso, Chicago's first black player, passes away


When Minnie Miñoso broke into Major League Baseball, the "Cuban Comet" was part of a wave of black players who changed the game forever. By the time he played in his final game 35 years ago, he was a beloved figure with the Chicago White Sox.

It was one amazing ride for the seemingly ageless slugger, who died early Sunday morning after helping clear the way for generations of minority ballplayers, including a long list of stars from his home country.

Wishful thinking about Cuba on the part of the Yankee imperialist press?

"Although companies such as MasterCard, American Express, Netflix and Twitter have announced plans to expand operations in Cuba..."  (USA Today, March 1st, 2015)

JG: When is the Cuban government going to start defending Cuba's national sovereignty?

When is Raul Castro's government going to issue a very categorical statement which says: 
"As long as the Yankee imperialist state keeps the blockade/embargo law on its books, NO AMERICAN COMPANY WILL BE ALLOWED TO OPERATE INSIDE CUBA."

Raul Castro is beginning to look too eager to re-establish diplomatic relations with its evil neighbor to the north!

Nicolas Maduro bans the entry to Venezuela of Cuban-American fascist U.S. Senator Marco Rubio!

BANNED!

Venezuela to shrink US Embassy staff, require tourist visas for Americans

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela will shrink the size of the U.S. Embassy staff, limit the activities of U.S. diplomats and require American citizens to apply for visas if they want to come bask on the beach.

Speaking before a crowd that rallied to protest imperialism, President Nicolas Maduro said Saturday that gringo meddling had forced him to adopt the series of restrictive measures, which include requiring U.S. diplomats to seek approval from the Foreign Ministry for meetings they conduct here.
Maduro said he was imposing the new tourist visa requirement for national security reasons, saying that in recent days authorities had detained several U.S. citizens who he alleged were involved in espionage, including an American pilot.

JG: Remember the movie The Ugly American? Everywhere they go the Yankees try to meddle in the internal affairs of sovereign nations. They are worse than any mother-in-law. Applause for Mr. Maduro!

Jeb Bush wants to convice the 'suckers who are born every minute' that he is a Republican "moderate." Ja! Ja! Ja! (Spanish version) ~ Ha! Ha! Ha! (English version)


Jeb Bush speaks good Spanish! That is a plus for him in a state that has a lot of bilingual people.

But apparently, he has forgotten the old Spanish refrain that goes something like this:

"Dime con quien andas, y te diré quien eres"

Translated, sort of literally, it means in English: "Tell me who you run around with, and I will tell you who you are."

Now that he is running for POTUS in 2016, is Jeb Bush going to show the prospective Florida voters the photo below?

New Florida Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero III, second from right, stands with wife, Ana Maria, son, Michael, and daughter Elisa, next to Gov. Jeb Bush on Wednesday. Cantero is the first Hispanic appointed to the high court. (July 11, 2002)

Cantero is Florida's 80th justice. A native of Madrid, Spain, he is the son of Cuban exiles who fled the communist regime [in Cuba] and later settled in Florida in the 1960s. He is a grandson of former Cuban leader Fulgencio Batista.

FL Supreme Court justice, grandson of former Cuban dictator Batista, to step down (Jeb-appointed)

Poor kid! He even looks like his abuelo, Cuban Dictator Fulgencio Batista.

Jeb will probably get a lot of votes from the Batistianos and the Miami fascists.

Spain’s anti-austerity left-wingers Podemos would come in second, ahead of the Socialist party (PSOE), if general elections were held today, a polling firm declared this week, as the party, barely one year old, continues its surge in popularity.

Although the governing conservative Popular Party (PP), led by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, came in first place in the Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS) poll, its popularity has plunged of late after a series of corruption scandals involving politicians in their own ranks have come to light.

The government’s tough welfare cuts have also benefited Podemos, whose left-wing policies and pre-election popularity have drawn parallels with Greece’s newly-elected Syriza party.

Highlighting the nation’s ongoing shifts in the political landscape, the CIS poll showed that no clear majority would emerge from the vote, likely forcing the main parties to try to form a coalition. And with general elections due by the year’s end, experts are watching the polls closely.

According to the survey, the PP would take 27.3% of the vote, with Podemos on 23.9% and the Socialists on 22.2%.

With newcomer Podemos now grabbing the biggest share of the leftist vote, the PSOE may be forced to decide between backing a grand coalition with its centre-right PP opponents or a left-wing government lead by Podemos.

Like Syriza in Greece, Podemos is hoping to win power by overtaking the two leading parties and emerging as the dominant party.
