    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.
