Vintige postcard from La Habana showing Morro Castle, during the USA neocolonial period of Cuba, (1902-1958)



Too bad that the last two digits of the year does not show clearly.
I had plenty of this cheap 1 Centavo Verde stamp in my stamp collection.
The Postmark slogan says COMPRE AZUCAR CUBANO,
buy Cuban Sugar.

The stamp was printed in 1948.

Vicki Huddleston talks about Fidel, but the editor could have found a much better photo. I do not like this one.

JG: I will remain 100% Fidelista until the day that I die.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Donald Trump!
Note to Miss Huddleston: "What is important to me is to keep the noses of the Yankee imperialists out of Cuba. They no longer own Cuba. They are not welcome in the island."

My pet peeve about Reuters "reports"

An example:

HAVANA (Reuters) - Communist-run Cuba’s first cabinet meeting under new President Miguel Diaz-Canel focused on corruption and a cash crunch hurting the economy, state-run media reported on Thursday.

Does Reuters think that the rest of the world is dumb and stupid?

How come when they never "report" about the USA this way: 

"Capitalist-run USA unleashed tonight a military attack on Syria with the help of their two perennial ass-kissers, UK & France. Russia stated that 71% of the missiles were shot down."

You may also notice they always concentrates on negative news about Cuba.

Museo Girón A small museum in the Bay of Pigs gives the Cuban perspective on the famously failed U.S. invasion.

Located a stone’s throw (or rifle shot) away from Playa Girón, one of the beaches within the Bay of Pigs, Museo Girón houses exhibits and artifacts related to the infamously fruitless American-led invasion of Cuba. The items inside the small, two-room building detail the history of what’s been touted as the first defeat of U.S. imperialism in Latin America.

The Dishonesty of Yahoo and AOL: They just gave themselves the right to read your emails (again)

"Though Yahoo was already scanning its users' emails to maximize ad opportunities, doubling-down on the policy could raise eyebrows in a post-Cambridge Analytica world."

Did the people lose their right to privacy when the Yankees "invented" the Internet?

Cuba Strongly Condemns US, UK and French Attack on Syria

Havana, Apr 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuba has strongly condemned the new attack by the US, United Kingdom and France on Syrian military and civilian facilities using as a pretext the alleged used of chemical weapons by Damascus forces in Douma.

This unilateral action, ignoring the UN Security Council, is a 'flagrant violation of International Law and the UN Chapter, while being an outrage against a sovereign State that worsens the conflict in Syria and the region,' a statement by the Cuban Foreign Ministry reads.

The US has attacked Syria -it adds- without the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Damascus government has been proved, and despite the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was already on the ground to open an investigation in Douma.

Cuba, a signatory nation of the Convention of Chemical Weapons, firmly turns down the use of this armament and other of mass extermination by any player and under any circumstance, the Foreign Ministry underlines.

'The Cuban Revolutionary Government conveys its solidarity and sympathy with the people and government of Syria for the lost of lives and material damage as a consequence of this heinous attack,' the statement concludes.

Read and Laugh

Read the editorial and laugh: No more Castroism: Cuba needs to free its own people.

You guys at WAPO are too dumb to realize and figure out that you, Yankee imperialists, no longer rule Cuba with your pliant puppets of the past, like Machado and Batista.

The 1902-1958 era will not return to Cuba.  Cuban Socialism, now, tomorrow and forever.

Are you going to send your sons and daughters to fight in the new war "adventure" that Donald Trump is planning for Syria?

Please, do not become part o the crowd that becomes a "sucker who is born every minute." Donald Trump needs to be IMPEACHED before he blows up the world. The man is thoroughly DISHONEST.

Mattel is trying to make a fast buck off the name of Frida Kahlo

Mattel Introduced the Frida Kahlo Barbie: This March, at $29.99 a pop, the doll depicts the radical feminist artist without her signature uni-brow. Also missing is any reference to Kahlo's anti-capitalist politics -- "it's only through communism," she once wrote, "that we can become human."

Doomsday Map: JFK was not a Saint. he was an Evil Man.

Cuba reitera su apoyo a Lula. Declaración del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

El Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de la República de Cuba denuncia el encarcelamiento con fines políticos del compañero Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, que constituye un hecho gravísimo al intentar impedir que el líder más popular de Brasil sea candidato a la presidencia de ese país.

El Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores reitera su solidaridad con el compañero Lula Da Silva, víctima de una injusta persecución política, judicial y mediática, que tiene el propósito de criminalizar a un líder emblemático de Nuestra América y a las fuerzas políticas y sociales que emprendieron el camino hacia un Brasil más justo.

Al encarcelar a Lula se aspira a revertir los progresos y conquistas sociales de los gobiernos del Partido de los Trabajadores, entre ellos el haber sacado de la pobreza a millones de brasileños.

Al compañero Lula y al pueblo brasileño no les faltará el apoyo de gobiernos, organizaciones, fuerzas políticas y movimientos sociales en numerosos países de todas las regiones.
