United States occupation of Cuba (Part III)/ Neocolonialism does not mean independence

Post By @CubanWindow

Summary & Translation from the original post published on the Radio Rebelde Cuba site

Trump’s misconceptions about Cuba

US President Donald Trump was mistaken in the lines of his message about Cuba. He issued a brief statement this May 20, where the first error: evokes the date as Cuba’s Independence Day.

Is it necessary to review the story?
Why is not his speech stale not surprising?
And is that for decades, every year the Government of the United States of America commemorates that day, hiding the true reality.
In that date of 1902, the Island exhibited for the first time its condition of neo colonial territory . (Related United States occupation of Cuba (Part II) / The true meaning of May 20 )

The country remained at the disposal of powerful American economic interests, and its national and foreign political life would be administered essentially from the US Embassy in the Cuban capital.

The implantation of a government with a Cuban face that thought, spoke and acted in English, was an indispensable piece to complete the hieroglyph from which the neocolonial model conceived in Washington would emerge.

The 20 of May of 1902 a neocolonial country was born.

Therefore, we also do not accept that President Trump invokes the thought of Jose Marti.

Bullying: what’s wrong with this society

stop bullying

Post By @CubanWindow

We would like to think differently, but it costs us, this damn society seeks imperfections beyond borders, but does not want to look inward.

Sadness, anger, impotence, the feelings are thronging us when we read the news: 8yo  (Gabriel Taye) ‘knocked unconscious & beaten’ at Cincinnati school days before suicide – footage

Really ? Stop for a moment to think about what it means for a handsome boy just 8 years old to decide to take his own life.

How many felled dreams, birthday that will not be celebrated, appointments that will not be arranged while the belly is flooded with butterflies, maternal hugs that will not be received at bedtime , successes and failures to share.

What the hell is wrong with this society ? This is about children, under 10 years who enjoy beating a fellow…

What happens to those who witness such inhumanity and choose to look the other way ?

What is wrong with those who decide to take a video and share it on the networks while others wave their thumbs up as a sign of approval, sharing and stamping a happy face below the post ?

And what the hell happens to those responsible for schools that become partners in the crime of the silence ?

It is a sick society and we do not do much to heal it, looking sideways  for imperfections does not make us better.

Not to realize that we have the perfect democracy in the world, because it is a lie, the most horrible and damn lie of all because we are unable to guarantee an 8-year-old child the most important right of all, the right to live.

We are going to keep for a long time in our minds the image of Gabriel, smiling, with his painted face and his dreams that will not be fulfilled.

In 2015, Grace Livingstone, author of “America’s Backyard: The United States and Latin America from the Monroe Doctrine to the War on Terror,” were interviesed to explore whether the Organization of American States can ever become more representative of the needs of the 900 million citizens in the Americas it claims to represent. It has a checkered past: the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro labeled it the “Trojan horse” of U.S. foreign policy, and not only did it kick out Cuba soon after its revolution, but right-wing dictators remained in the body, despite disappearing and killing tens of thousands

Elder Speaks: 8 Native American father code and ethics every dad needs to follow via www.whitewolfpack.com

Post by @CubanWindow

Reblogged from the original post in http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2016/06/elder-speaks-8-native-american-father.html

A father is a man who takes responsibility for the children in his life. Many men grow up without a positive, healthy role model of fatherhood.

It is often when men are holding their baby for the first time that they take a good hard look at what it means to raise a child

1- Provide the necessities of life: Most fathers want to provide for their children. This includes things like a home, food and education. It also includes things like love, security and attention. Think of it as providing a safe place to grow. When their needs are met, children learn to trust that their father has their best interests in mind at all times.

Climbing lies to reach the top

Marco Rubio (Republican, senator for the state of Florida) long narrated a misrepresented story about the arrival of his parents to these lands and thanks to the means that enhanced his shameless told everyone that his parents had been forced to leave the island as “political exiles” (definition hung by the extreme-right-wing to qualify those who left Cuba after the triumph of the revolution in 1959), when they actually abandoned the “green cayman” 2 years before that date, receiving permanent residence in this “earthly paradise” that we sell to the world as a promised land , as it appears in several official documents including naturalization papers (Original: Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show)

 

Nothing good we can expect from a subject who resorts to lies to reach the top, and even less a political environment that wipes out the accumulated lies to get close to the
