Rememberance of a Cuban Immigrant

Well folks, I have been very remiss in putting up a post now and then, but I am so distressed by what our Destroyer in Chief is doing to this country on a daily basis. So now of course two different items have come to me from other readers across the US.

They have urged me to put them up here and to forward them to as many others as I can who are as upset as I am about the state of our Union. I hope if you are reading this, you are one of them.

As to previous comments people had made here and they never showed up in the appropriate places, I apparently checked the box that said all comments had to be moderated. Not so, I am just an idiot when it comes to a lot of this blogging stuff. The box will get unchecked as soon as I can find it again.

So here is the first post:

What others see plainly, we often ignore

I remember seeing pictures of Castro during his trip to NY City before he took over - all that could be talked about were the chickens in the hallway of the Waldorf Astoria -

guess that was because the fox was in the hen house

the slug has got to go

What others see plainly, we often ignore.

*Here's something to think about.*

I remember asking dad about Castro when I was about 9 years old. I asked,
"Is Castro a good guy or bad?"

Dad said...he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in
Louisiana ...at the time. Dad was in the Army there.

Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same

Ike was president.

This past July, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a
refugee from Cuba . Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.

This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960's.
His family was more fortunate than most, as they were able to bring a
suitcase...and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary

Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad,
watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family
and friends nationwide...while celebrating the birth of our beloved America
...on the Fourth of July.

We began with a simple discussion about our country, and the direction it
has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints
about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the
rulers in Washington.

But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned.
But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took
power, none of us knew he was a Communist".

We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a
nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."

The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just
like Barack Obama?"

He responded; "Yes, just like Barack Obama."

He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab
more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your
guns. We all complied."

I remember my uncle saying after it started; "Castro will only nationalize
some of the big industries. He will never come and take our family hardware
store!!" But that is exactly what happened. Castro started with the sugar
mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the
door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for
generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And
that nice, large four-bedroom home you own...it is now our property also,
and...you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house,
because others are moving in with you."

The lesson learned from this discussion, is a lesson most Americans refuse
to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in
office...they can take totally unexpected turns.

If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be
nationalized, we would have never believed it.. We could never contemplate a
country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a
justice society...would be evaporating, just like it did in Castro's Cuba in
the early 1960's.

But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged
with wrong doing by the U.S. Department of Justice...because their crimes
are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their
assets...without due process by the government! Governmental leaders are
bribed in full daylight...only to have all investigation of the crimes
stifled...by the Attorney General.

The U.S. borders are over run with crime and illegal activity, and the
leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the
lawbreakers....while the innocent are killed and over run. When local
communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed...and threatened
as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration...entrusted
with enforcing the law.

Without the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution is a sham!! Without the rule
of law, our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the
well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has
so eloquently explained in her recent book...a culture of corruption has
replaced honest government.

The only way this problem will be fixed, is by massive citizen action. All
honest citizens that want to be treated equally, must come together...and
demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law...end
now!! And yes, it can happen here.

PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!! And...may God save the United States
of America !
