So, the cut&run party won the mid-term elections. I am satisfied. I tell you why: Nancy Pelosi (an Italian-American I am not proud of ) will contribute to the defeat of the liberals in 2008. Her control of the House will be enough for the American voters not to vote a Democrat as next U.S. president. Consider this as a partial victory for the GOP. Of course, much is at stake, such as free trade, taxes (the left loves increasing them, above all when it comes to punish the enterpreunering middle class) , the war on terror (the democrats will do their best to repeal the Patriot Act, who saved millions of lives over the past 5 years) , etc. But don’t be upset and just be patient. Give Pelosi and the likes of the Democratic Party 2 years to damage the latter’s chances of victory in 2008. Nancy Pelosi’s House = Democrats defeat in 2008. This Democratic victory paves the way for a Republican victory in 2008. And that’s far more important.

From the Real Cuba. ‘Mecaniqueros’ a video that shows what Cubans have to do in order to survive. ‘Mecaniqueros’ is a French television production which shows what Cubans are doing to survive under the brutal regime that has been ruling the island for almost 50 years. The title comes from “mecanico”, Spanish for “mechanic,” and is a reference to those people in Cuba who can fix anything or, like it is shown on the video, create a light switch from an empty toothpaste tube and an empty spray can.The 52-minute video also shows how the regime tries to prevent the Cuban people from earning any extra money. Castro’s officials enter the homes unannounced and give heavy fines to any Cuban who has created a small business to earn a little extra money to supplement the meager slave salaries that they receive. Note that nobody of the people you’ll hear blamed the so-called “U.S. embargo”. Someone even aknowledged that before 1959, things were much better. Click here to see it.
