Today, inWashington, at the State Department.
Ink As A Typewriter Ribbon
One Cuban journalist asked foreigners who visited him for one thing: a pen. Another uses shoe polish as ink as a typewriter ribbon.
Joining us here are family members of political prisoners in Cuba. I’ve asked them to come because I want our fellow citizens to see the faces of those who suffer as a result of the human rights abuses on the island some 90 miles from our shore. One of them is Olga Alonso. Her brother, Ricardo Gonzalez Alonso [sic], has been harassed by Cuban authorities since he was 11 years old, because he wrote things that the Cuban authorities did not like.
Wrong Guy, Part II
Also with us is Yamile Llanes Labrada. Yamile’s husband, Jorge [sic] Luis Garcia Paneque, was a surgeon and journalist.
Wacka-Wow, Wacka-Wacka Wow-Wow
I want to thank each of you coming today.
Talking About GITMO?
These are just a few of the examples of the terror and trauma that is Cuba today. The socialist paradise is a tropical gulag.

Isn’t‘The socialist paradise is a tropical gulag.’ more effective as‘The tropical paradise is a socialist gulag.’ Did Chimpy transpose his adjectives or am I such a dirty f’in hippy that ‘socialist’ isn’t a sufficiently bad modifier for me to get the joke?
Of course, the almost 50 year USA policy has absolutely nothing to do with Cuba’s poverty.
“Human rights abuses on an island some 90 miles from our shore.” Is he talking about torture? People being held for years without a charge? Ghost detainees kept away from the International Red Cross? Prisoners not allowed to see their lawyers? People held prisoner who have no right of habeas corpus, no right to confront their accusers, no right to challenge the evidence supposedly used to keep them there? People who are held captive in inhuman conditions all on the say-so of one person, subject to NO safeguards or challenges of any kind?
No, of course not. He’s talking about Castro.
It’s a bit late for him to complain about the transfer of power; it’s happened already and no one consulted him or his sorry administration.
More people in Latin America listen to Fidel and Raúl than listen to G.W. Bush.
My first thoughts on accusations of human rights abuses on the Cuban island —Gitmo
Note to Democrats:
Please pounce all over this statement by White House Press Secretary Dana Perino:
“It’s just a ton of speculation,”said White House press secretary Dana Perino. “We don’t know how much the war is going to cost in the future.”
The President continues to say he has a plan for the Iraq War. Having a plan means knowing how much the war is going to cost.If you don’t know how much it’s going to cost then you don’t have a plan.
Run ads talking about how just the interest accrued on the rising cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be over $715 billion in the next 10 years.
Money is a huge factor in why 70% of America hates the Iraq War. Democrats need to yell and scream bloody murder over the costs. It’s their duty to give voice to the concerns of American taxpayers.
Sadly, the Iraq War is not a moral issue for most Americans, it’s a matter of money. Every child born today will spend the rest of their lives paying taxes just to pay the interest accrued for these wars. Stop the insanity!
