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

Bernie Sanders Democratic Socialism Speech - George Town Univ - Nov 19, 2015

Bernie Sanders LIVE from Georgetown University

As long as the USA & France continue invading and bombing other countries they will be inviting attacks on their own territories by religion-based fanatics

A Donald Trump or Ben Carson presidency would greatly endanger constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties in the USA

JG: What if he is in the White House and he decided to order the NSA to start compiling lists of people with Islamic or Hispanic surnames? Shades of the Third Reich in the USA? If you think that it can't happen here, you are a fool!

The two guys are total nuts. They must be STOPPED from setting foot in the White House. By whatever means are necessary.

See the report that follows:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has called for expanded surveillance of American Muslims, is refusing to rule out extreme measures that include warrantless searches or faith-based identification requirements(The Washington Post)

Is Wall Street ready for a huge stock market crash similar to the one in 1929?

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


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.
