This man writes for the Boston Globe. He is quite possibly the only one there with a working brain cell. Well, other than the sportswriters, because I hate the Yankees.
All people should live in freedom. No one has the right to “run a nation” like a prison camp. Those are core American truths – truths most Democrats once understood in their bones. Do they still?
Read his excellent column here.
A Verbal Diarrhea Alert has been issued for the DLO reading area. Today’s oral defecation comes to us not just from one but from many — The Congressional Black Caucus. Also known as commie boot licking useful idiots, some CBC members made a trek to Havana to sip a few mojitos, smile at the quaint natives, and continue Obama’s meme of blaming the United States for every evil.
However, no visit to Havana could be complete without a meeting with Murder, Inc. — the Castro brothers. Here they are hanging on little brother’s every word (indulging in a little verbal diarrhea himself, no doubt) . . . . .
Now, no visit to Cuber would be complete for these fellow travelers without an audience with The Don himself, El Coma Andante. So, without any further ado, the diarrhea:
“It was quite a moment to behold,” Lee said, recalling her moments with Castro.
“It was almost like listening to an old friend,” said Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Il.), adding that he found Castro’s home to be modest and Castro’s wife to be particularly hospitable.
“In my household I told Castro he is known as the ultimate survivor,” Rush said.
Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Ca.) said Castro was receptive to President Obama’s message of turning the page in American foreign policy.
“He listened. He said the exact same thing” about turning the page “as President Obama said,” said Richardson.
Richardson said Castro knew her name and district. “He looked right into my eyes and he said, ‘How can we help? How can we help President Obama?'”
Yeah, right. And if you believe that, then sunshine and bunny rabbits are about to hop out of his surgically repaired ass.
But, my friends, all is not lost. Someone does get it. Let’s wipe diarrhea with the venerable Thomas Sowell . . . .
How a man who holds the entire population of a country as his prisoners, and punishes the families of those who escape, can be admired by people who call themselves liberals is one of the many wonders of the human mind’s ability to rationalize. Yet such is the case with Fidel Castro.
More from Sowell (emphasis mine):
Barack Obama seems determined to repeat every disastrous mistake of the 1930s, at home and abroad. He has already repeated Herbert Hoover’s policy of raising taxes on high income earners, FDR’s policy of trying to micro-manage the economy and Neville Chamberlain’s policy of seeking dialogues with hostile nations while downplaying the dangers they represent.
A Verbal Diarrhea Alert has been issued for the DLO reading area. Please take cover.
Today’s oral sphincter spew comes from the Queen of the Moonbats, former Congresswoman and Green Party candidate, Cynthia McKinney. (Remember when she slapped a U.S. Capitol cop? High comedy.)
Cynthia is attending an “international conference” in the Tropical Workers’ Paradise of Cuba. She is just thrilled to be in Cuba Libre where the oppressed people still have their dignidad. Yet, Fidel and Co. are not the oppressors — we are! Yes, America is Cuba’s oppressor and Obama’s election was all about giving us Americans the same dignidad . . . .
I really do believe that this last election was about people in our country trying to have a little of that dignidad and feeling of Cuba Libre. But given the assassination attempts and the continued occupation of Guantanamo Bay, and the multiple acts of terror sponsored by our government to destabilize this idyllic, yet tough minded island people, it must be clear that dignidad is not something one can get on the cheap.
All the crazy you can stand can be found here.

We bloggers don’t really need them to do what we do. We live in freedom. We can spout our criticisms in our comfy living rooms with wireless broadband access without fear of a knock on the door late at night. We’re not all so lucky. That said, let me introduce to Yoani Sanchez.
Ninety-eight pound soaking wet, this brave Cuban woman speaks truth to totalitarian power everyday in a country where no one dares sticks their head out for fear of having it chopped off. Yet at Generacion Y, this woman with BALLS puts them out there, Devil may care.
Don’t know who she is? Well, read this . . . .
More important, under the nose of a regime that has never tolerated dissent, Sánchez has practiced what paper-bound journalists in her country cannot: freedom of speech. The pieces she has been clandestinely sending out from Internet cafés—while posing as a tourist—are often funny, elegantly written and poignant. Her subjects have included the shortage of lemons, the turgid proceedings of the Cuban parliament and the slowness of meaningful reforms by Raúl Castro. (more…)
El Gusano at La Contra Revolucíon shows that to be a communist, you must have no shame:
When you have no shame, no principles, it’s easy to hate and to let the means justify the ends. Everything is relative in the Marxist philosophical heaven of dialectic materialism . . . . Oh, that’s right communists have no shame. The only thing that matters is the millions that the Chinese are pouring into Cuba so that the Castro family can remain in power.
For 50 years the Castros have proven that anyone who will bankroll the regime is welcome — as long as the screws are not loosened on their power or the Cuban people, of course.
Without preconditions?! I’d be cracking up if it all wasn’t so damn depressing.
Wow… This is fun!
At least the economy is rebounding.
But the terrorists have given up, right?
We sure have put those commies in their place!
OK… but those are the Chinese and they’ve always been a little unpredictable…
The Ruskies are keeping quiet.
Heeeeey, wait a second, here…
