A Boil On the Butt of Humanity

Castro Steps Down, Castro's Dead, Castro's Fallen and Can't Get up.....
Does It Really Matter?...I Mean Really?

As a first generation American of Cuban immigrant parents, I should feel some sense of relief, but I don't. I am also too close to the subject to avoid getting emotional, as I have experienced my parents losses first hand: The loss of familial relationships, the frustration of knowing that your closest relatives need a particular medicine or treatment which you are able to pay for or provide, but you are not permitted to. The notification of the death of brothers and sisters, weeks and sometimes months after the fact. The confiscation of family land and businesses-never to be recovered. Separation of children and parents in order to go to work camps in the hopes it will aid in getting a visa to come here....the list goes on and on.

When I think about my parents courage in leaving their country and families in the 50's to come to the United States, its not the physical act of emigrating that I dwell on. The most courageous part is living here with the knowledge that your loved ones are doing without, may be politically persecuted, are being denied basic human rights all in the name of the Revolution....I wonder, if they had to do it all over again, would they make the same choice?

When the news that Castro had stepped down, I was not too excited, because unless you scrap everyone who supported that regime and install new, it is like a cancer that will never be completely eradicated. Cutting out some pathetic, sickly, senior citizen, and has-been revolutionary is like trying to pretend that perhaps a "different" Republican will make a difference in our own countries government. (Ouch-that hurt, Joe didn't it?)

In any case...thats my 2 cents, but before I leave you, I have collected a few other opinions from around the internet....have a look ..... ( I know, I know) Anti-Fidel blogs

I've heard it all, So have you....!

While perusing the craigslist personal ads (yes, I do) I came across an ad which I will not copy here , but which has a part that summed up just about every type of pronouncement possibly uttered by some people responding to or posting to a personal ad.
I think its quite funny...and by the way, just to show you what a good sport I am, I will highlight the ones that I have heard personally.

Happy Valentines Day!!!!

I love this day....and oddly, I love it more as a single person. The stress of trying to find the perfect gift, or go into debt trying to impress someone, who by the way, probably isn't worth it anyway if thats the way they measure your love for them, left me with more than just a bad taste in my mouth.
In my opinion, time is the most valuable thing you can get your sweetie for this holiday. We are all overworked, underpaid, perhaps underappreciated and definitely starved of "me" and "we" time. In addition it is still too close to the end of the last winter holiday season to fall victim again to the commercialization and hype of yet another gift giving event.

Time, sensitivity, consideration, a helping hand....all go along way towards expressing to someone that you care for them. Flowers and candy are nice, but if the day after Valentines Day you turn back into a selfish, self serving, crass, inconsiderate cave man (or woman) than you have missed the boat and I feel bad for your partner.
See the nice flower in the personalized holder above? Not only did I get this flower, but also the friendship of a funny, considerate, practical and caring man, who by the way is partnered with someone else, but nevertheless, has all the qualities I desire in a mate. He is considerate, helpful, caring and spends alot of time with his partner and thus explains the successful longevity of their relationship.

Whatever your relationship status....have a Happy Valentines Day....and don't overdo the chocolate :)
