Time for Cuba’s communists to pay our parents back

leave a comment »

In the interest of full disclosure, our family lost a home that was under construction.  The house was never built, but we had chosen the location.  I still remember my uncle, an architect, talking to my mother about the location of the windows.  He was advising her to take advantage of the breeze that always flowed in Cuba.

My parents have no interest in claiming the ground.  They were just happy that the three of us got to grow up in freedom.

Many of my friends did lose their properties and got no compensation for them.

I know a Cuban woman whose family ranch was confiscated by soldiers who showed up and threw the family from the grounds at gunpoint.  Sadly, the ranch had been in the family for a century and raised cattle for domestic beef consumption.  My guess is that the cows are dead and the place is another unproductive piece of Cuban land.

It gives me pleasure, and a sense of justice, that some people are going to court to challenge the communist regime.  I’ve talked to some of them, and they’re all doing it for their parents, who worked so hard to build those businesses.  It’s like justice for “mami y papi,” and I understand that fully.

This is from Fergus Hodgson:

Nearly 60 years have passed since the confiscations began, but the damages are easily identifiable for tens of thousands of Cuban exiles and their descendants. 

The Castro regime also carried out the mass theft in a brazenly public manner, so there is no dispute over its occurrence and the amount of property affected.

In the short run, the confiscation was done to exploit the nonsense that all of the property-owners were part of the CIA.  In the long run, it was another communist failure because the factories and ranches had no one to run them.

So let justice happen.  I don’t personally care for any money from the communists.  I just want them to recognize the injustice of stealing property and accusing our parents of something they were not.

As my late father once said, “we create jobs and made Cuba prosperous.  What did the communists do?”  They didn’t create real jobs or make the island prosperous.

Not the party that Joe grew up in

leave a comment »

How crazy left obsessed with skin color are the Democrats?  The answer is “very.”  Just ask former VP Joe Biden, who was forced to say in a debate that he is not a racist.

On Thursday night, Senator Kamala Harris dropped the hammer on Biden, who looked totally startled: 

Harris told Biden that she didn’t believe he was a “racist,” but considered his recent comments about being able to work with segregationist senators early in his career “hurtful.”

“You worked with them to oppose busing,” Harris then said, referring to his efforts to limit federal orders for school desegregation by busing. 

In an emotional moment, she then told her own story of being bused as a little girl in California.

It was good politics, specially in front of that audience.  However, I am not sure that it will work in on the road to the nomination.  Does any serious person out there, left or right, think that Joe Biden is a racist because he worked with other Senators?

What it tells me is just how focused on race this party has become.  Again, this focus on race and gender works very well in that debate but I don’t see it benefiting the party down the road.

My guess is that Biden went home last night and said to Mrs. Biden that they are calling him a racist for working with other senators.  I’m sure that his wife replied that this is not the party that they both knew.  It is not!
