    STORMY WEATHER FROM CUBA TO BALTIMORE

    in Politics Conservative

    Thou shalt not covet thy Cuban neighbor's goods.


    I love it when communist presidents take over another communist country. Long before  Elian  Gonzalez was kidnapped on American soil by the  Clintonistas with the help of CNN and  Geraldo  Rivera. Then sold to Fidel Castro for future favors.  Bararak   Hussein  (what a joke)  Obama  bin Lenin bin Laden is now calling in the marker. Having received his special call from the Kremlin that Castro was about to be overthrown by his starving (with the best health care) people.  Obama  bailed out his communist partners in crime. Now it is democrat leach time as the communist capitalists start to exploit the poor of Cuba and swindle them of any assets they have left. Starting with 50's base ball cards and classic cars. Moving right along to  bacardi  rum, sugar and those famous cigars. Nothing But Communists NBC( The Voice of  Obama ) has already been granted a boon.  Conehead  O'Brian ( Gyppo  the Informer) has done the first Obama  controlled show from  Havana.  Now we hear that Cuba has minerals including gold teeth which will be mined by friends of Obama and Hitlery hot hot hot  Clinton. This is all with the blessings of the demo commo supporters who will be the first into Cuba to sample low priced hookers, Three dollar beach front hotel rooms and eleven cent Cuba libres.  NOT TO MENTION BUYING DRUGS DIRECT FROM THE FACTORY. To return home to brag they only tipped twenty five cents to the little skinny Cuban who carried all nine bagsat once.


    You might say this is fiction but I say I am Pretty close to the truth.  Bartender Champagne and read this man his Merengue warning.

    in History

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend as well as Cuban Indepence day this week May 20th from Conversa Cuba Companioni- trilingual talk radio: topics are Our Lady of Charity. A wonderful article by Maria Ruiz de Lourdes Scaperlanda via the Knights of Columbus www.kofc.0rg from Sept 2007. 


    Of this article my dearlydeparted cousin and eternal co host of this show John O' Donnell Rosales wrote me on the margins "Bobby, this article permitted me to go to the Knights meeting and talk of La Virgen and the terrors of Castro. There wasn't a dry eye in the house after I finished speaking, it was great and now 120 men (todos americanos) have a real view of the horrors of Castro. It was great."


    And in Spanish an article by Carlos Alberto Montaner "A Dictatorship with Skyscrapers" with analysis about the recent reunion between Cuban Tyrant Raul Castro and Pope Francis in Rome.

    Italy Magazine - Everything Italy, Authentically Italian with Georgette Jupe

    in Travel

    I can live a happy and content life now.  I've accomplished one of my lifetime goals in interviewing Italy Magazine on my little show.  I'm excited beyond measure.


    Georgette Jupe joined me to talk about Italy Magazine and why it's simply amazing.  It is THE Italy resource, packed with glorious stories about all of Italy from Rome, Florence, and Venice to the nooks and crannies that all of us Italophiles yearn for everyday.


    I remember when they were a printed magazine and I had them collected like prized novels on my bookshelf (still do).  They've since gone green and are purely an online magazine to the benefit of us all.  The content changes often, is packed with LOCAL insight, offers a community for all of us to tap into the collective braintrust of millions of readers and Italy experts, has a shop, and neatly organized content.


    If you can't get enough of Italy Magazine at www.italymagazine.com be sure to follow them on all of their well managed, informed social network sites.  You will discover a new Italy everyday.
