<quoted text>Cubans tend to be Republican, Puerto Ricans are overwhelmingly Democrats__the two groups have differences that go way back. Rubio has no particular advantage pulling PR, or Mexican votes IMO and that San Antonio mayor Julian Castro would mop the floor with Rubio in a debate.
Interestingly the other Cuban US Senator Robert Menendez is a Democrat who strongly supports continuing the Cuban embargo.
Well, don't forget we have the Fanjul Brothers; the Kochs of Florida! However, they do not represent the poor Cubans, the majority of them on some sort of assistance. All of the other Hispanics from PR and DR etc have no love lost for the Cubans.
I hope we see the day that the embargo is lifted and the Cubans free to travel and trade with the US.
Agree the Castro brothers are cool and calm, confident, eloquent speakers.
Are there any good speakers on the Rightwinger side?

And wars off the books but on the charge card? Man, those "conservatives" surely know how to balance a budget, huh...pretty sure Dumbya gave himself a 200K raise first thing, but his clearing brush in Texas might have figured into that amount...

Shaddap, pinhead. Go lock yourself in the basement and count the days until the next election when you can run an unusually outgoing and conservative Blue-Headed Booby as your last chance to save Amuricuh.

No, Massey, nobody (with walkin' around sense) pays any attention to your pronouncements except for purposes of humor...Fish? Are you paying tribute to that oysterbed murderer friend of yours or trying to get something to go with you fifty dollar loaf of bread? You're a joke, flack--you and your little sock buddies should learn to live with it and alone.

It wasn't smooth at all. He was visibly nervous, appeared to be like a high school senior rehearsing in front of a mirror; his mouth was extremely dry and he finally grabbed a sip of water and in the end he said God bless everyone and smiled from ear to ear. It was laughable at best.
i'm not thrilled with Rubio and his amnesty plan, but in your case once again Obama's "cool" style trumps substance or his lack of.

fast forward to when the USA resembles a poor district in the Hunger Games--because the Dems Voter Membership Drive cloaked as "Immigration Reform" finishes killing off the middle class by lowering wages and flooding all social service and educational systems with millions of more poor.

I'm already hearing complaints about how they're pushing tuition aid for children of illegals...here we go.

A tax cut reduces revenues. So unless there are not corresponding revenue increases or cuts in spending, they create deficits.

Note: Bush Tax Cuts. Unfunded.

Homer? We have another Rainman here who keeps asking the same question over and over.
I'll tell you this though; moran: There have been no new residents added since President Obama has been in office.
because its far more humane if Obama kills them before they get there.

A third person was reportedly shot at because police believed he was suspected cop killer and fugitive Christopher Dorner.

David Perdue was on his way to catch some waves on Thursday morning when, according to his lawyer, a Torrance, Calif. police cruiser "slammed into his pickup and officers opened fire," reports the Los Angeles Times.

The bullets missed Perdue, but his attorney, Robert Sheahen, said his client suffered a concussion and hurt his shoulder, making it temporarily impossible for him to work at his job as a baggage handler at LAX. Perdue's car was also totaled, Sheahen told the Times.

The Torrance Police Department said the incident was a case of mistaken identity. Officers thought Perdue's truck was Dorner's pickup.

The paper notes that "Perdue is a thin white man who looks nothing like Dorner" who is black and heavier set.

Also on Thursday, two women were shot at by Los Angeles Police officers because their truck was mistaken for Dorner's. At the time, there was a report that Dorner had been spotted in the neighborhood.

Leo, baby, you redheaded Goddess of my dreams. As I wait for the steam to build up I was wondering. What was Adam's job in the garden of Eden? Eve's? You don't suppose they were unemployed do you? Maybe their job was to boink each other? If so, does that mean they got thrown out of Eden for doing their job? Where'd they buy their fig leaves? Oh yeah? Where'd they get the cash? Do you suppose God made Adam and Eve al that free stuff just so he could take it away and teach them the value of money? I love you, wish me luck. Naked and goin' in nowwwwww......

Cut spending, let the people who earn the money keep it, and you will have a government you can pay for. The free market is the most powerful thing ever invented by mankind. It has raised more people out of poverty than anything else ever. Let it lose and it will do wonders.

A couple more questions: where did Eve buy shoes? I would think nothing could be more damning proof of the evil which is christianity than the failure of god to address the matter of Eve's footwear. And think about it, if god's vision of perfection is a garden where everything is free, who's to say he was wrong?
