Bernie Sanders says: “It is not over.”

The Clinton campaign thinks this campaign is over, Jorge.

They are wrong.

Maybe it's over for the insiders and the party establishment, but the voters in Indiana had a different idea. The campaign wasn't over for them. It isn't over for the voters in West Virginia. It isn't over for Democrats in Oregon, New Jersey and Kentucky. It isn't over for voters in California and all the other states with contests still to come.



JG: do not listen to Hillary's wishful thinking.

Remember what Yogi Berra once said: "It ain't over till it's over."

And people, do not forget, only Bernie Sanders is honest to lead us to a true victory in November.


Excellent victory last night by Bernie Sanders in Indiana

When the first returns came in, after 7:00 pm, Hillary Clinton was leading by 15 percentage points.

Bernie won by more than five percentage points at the end.

Congratulations Bernie!

It is my opinion that Bernie will win progressive Oregon by a landslide, and that he will do very well in California.

Yogi Berra: "It ain't over till its over.

Bernie Sanders is the only one who can stop Donald Trump.

What happened after I wrote my last post

Just out of curiosity, I typed 'Biblioteca Nacional de Cuba' in the Google search bar.

The first line in the Google returns was this:

Biblioteca Nacional José Martí - Portal del Sistema


When I clicked on the second line, the URL, here is the page I got:





"This domain is blocked due to a security threat"

JG: So, now you know it. The National Library of Cuba is a security threat
to the mighty Yankee empire.
LOL!



  

How cell phones and screaming babies have ‘killed’ those fortresses of solitude and silence that we used to call libraries.


At a very early age I fell in love with book libraries. My school, being a religion-based institution, had an awful library. It concentrated on the histories of those individuals they called ‘saints.’ It was a total waste of my time to go there. I was never very interested in religion.

But the Cuban dictator that used to rule the island of Cuba, for the benefit of the Yankees, did build a stupendous library in Havana. It was called the Biblioteca Nacional de Cuba. After Batista’s overthrow, I used to visit it a lot.

What I liked very much was the total silence that reigned there. People talked in whispers. You could hear a pin drop. You could concentrate on doing research and/or reading good books on all kinds of subjects.

Now, after the “invention” of cell phones and screaming babies, libraries have been ‘destroyed.’

Highly Recommended Article: Thomas Frank on How Democrats Went From Being the ‘Party of the People’ to the Party of Rich Elites.


JG: The Democratic Party no longer represents the interests of the working class. They now represent the oligarchical 1% capitalist elites. Democrats are no longer the Party of Democracy. There is no difference between them and the Republicans. One party: The Capitalist Party, with two equally corrupt branches, Republicans and Democrats. For the suckers who are born every minute.

Hillary Clinton will continue the status quo of the disastrous Barack Obama presidency, you will get more of the same crap.

Only Bernie Sanders will constitute real change. 

Completo: Desfile por el Primero de Mayo en la Plaza de la Revolución de La Habana. 1 Mayo 2016.



A las 7:00 am comenzó el Desfile por el Día de los Trabajadores en la Isla, en el que participaron millones de cubanos. Santiago de Cuba inició la Marcha a esa hora de la mañana y media hora después, se dio la arrancada en la Plaza de la Revolución "José Martí", en La Habana, con la participación del Presidente cubano Raúl Castro.

Neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump appeal to me.

What will thousands of Berniecrats do in November?

1) Write-in Bernie Sanders name in the November general election?
2) Protest the corruption of the Democratic and Republican parties, and cast a vote for the Greens presidential candidate?
3) Stay home?

I wish that Bernie had NOT run as a Democrat. It would have been better if Bernie had stayed true to his roots as an Independent Socialist.

Two Stamp Market Tips columnists at Linn's Stamp News show their total ignorance about Cuba

Scott U.S. 223

Just about anyone with a little bit of intelligence and education knows that American imperialists occupied Cuba after the Spanish-American war.

A couple of Linn's Stamp News columnists show their total ignorance about Cuba when they recently described the island as "the world's last remaining hardline Communist dictatorship."

Yankee imperialists get cagalera (diarrhea) when they hear the word Cuba.

The pair, of course, did not tell the readers that Cuba became free -- on January First, 1959 -- of the puppets that the Yankee imperialists used to impose on the island from 1902 to 1958.

Employee owned companies are growing in popularity in the USA due to the acute failures of American capitalism

One current example is a company named Mystic Stamp Company based in New York.

This past April 4, Linn's Stamp News reported that the said company became an employee owned company.

New York Times: Fulgencio Batista is Overthrown in Cuba


Cuban Dictator
Fulgencio Batista

JG: I was there when it happened. I was 14 years old and was attending Colegio De La Salle in the Vedado district of Havana. My parents had some Batistianos friends who informed them that the Fidel Castro rebels were advancing in Central Cuba. I was sent to Reparto Fontanar, outside of Havana, near the airport, where my godmother lived, together with one of my cousins and his wife and children. I wasn't told of what was going on beforehand.

On the early morning of New Year's Day, 1 January 1959, the news spread like wildfire: Batista Huyó
 - Batista Fled!

Everyone was on the streets immediately, laughing and dancing. Cuba was finally free of the Yankee-supported tyrant.

I returned to Vedado and the whole neighborhood was like a YUGE party. My mom found some black and red cloths and she made a 26 of July flag and we put it on our third floor balcony. From that building, University of Havana students had launched a failed assault on Batista's Presidential Palace in 1957. Scores were assassinated by Batista's hated police. 

The U.S. mafia-controlled gambling dens were immediately sacked. I would never again have to spend my scarce nickels in criminally controlled enterprises.

When Fidel entered Havana on January eighth 1959, we walked to 23rd street and 24th avenue to watch the rebels on their way to occupying Columbia Barracks, where Batista had staged his 10 de Marzo coup d'etat in 1952.

Bill Maher: Tax Churches

Bernie Sanders tells it like it is

When we started this campaign, I emailed my supporters and said, "This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders. It's about a grassroots movement of Americans standing up and saying: 'Enough is enough. This country and our government belong to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires.'"

I believe that now more than ever.

The Historical Leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, says his goodbyes to Cuba and the World.

Bernie Sanders does well in New York. "It ain't over till it's over. Pennsylvania and California here we come."

Constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties are in great danger in Polk County, Florida. An open letter to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Winter Haven, Florida
April 19, 2012

Esteemed U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders:

I want you to be aware of what happened to two of your supporters in the city of Winter Haven, Florida, recently.

Last March two of your enthusiastic supporters, Jorge Gonzalez & Juan Perez formed a Bernie Club at the EC Apartments in our city. Polk County is an extremely conservative county in the Sunshine State.

E & C stands for Episcopal and Catholic. Those two churches own the 16 story building where more than 250 Seniors live.

Right from the beginning we were met with very strong opposition from the property management company that runs the building. The name of the company is SPM and the manager of the building is a young and inepxerienced young lady named Haley Alam. She is an employee of SPM.

The building has 19 bulletin boards, one on each floor and three in the ground floor of the building. We were informed by Ms. Alam that we could only put a notice announcing the foundation of our Bernie Club in the laundry room and at a tiny bulletin board in the lobby. Two out of 19.

Yesterday, April 18, I downloaded one of the pamphlets of your campaign for President of the United States. The title was 'Bernie Sanders on Senior Citizens.'

I personally had 200 copies of your pamphlet printed at a local print shop in Winter Haven that is very appropriately named 'Progressive Printers.' PACs and billionaires did not pay for the printing. It came out of my pocket.

Juan and I met at his floor and split the 200 pamphlets in half. I would personally deliver them at the clip that is on front tenant doors of floors 1-8. He would deliver to them to floors 9-16.

After our mission was accomplished, I retired to my apartment, and Juan went to tend to his personal affairs.

In the afternoon of the April 18, Juan Perez knocks on my apartment door and informs me that he had been violently threatened and insulted by one person in the ground floor of EC Apartments. According to Juan, he was told “You can't distribute this shit!”

Enters now, again, Haley Alam, who orders Juan Perez to remove the pamphlets from the doors of the apartments. He complied, because of the threats that he had received earlier.

Ms. Alam will not be able to prevent the thousands of Bernie pamphleteers from spreading the word about Democratic Socialism throughout the USA.

Cordially.

Jorge R. Gonzalez
