Hmmm no wonder so many here tolerate such Cuban political corruption. It would seem every culture defines corruption differently lol .

I don't support Castro but what must have been going on pre-Castro must have been very bad . Not only was the entire foreign currency reserve STOLEN but on top of that we impose a cruel embargo. I imagine the goal was for Castro to leave so some could return and steal even more.

I dont support Castro but sure as hell don't support many of these Miami Cuban political corrupt fascist hypocrites. Cuba loses either way . Much like Miami loses.

[edit] Early life and education
Maria Teresa, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg was born in Marianao, Havana, Cuba, to José Antonio Mestre y Alvarez (Vedado, Havana, 1926 -) and wife (m. Vedado, Havana, 1951) María Teresa Batista y Falla de Mestre (Vedado, Havana, 1928 - 1988), both from families of the Bourgeoisie and even Spanish Nobility including some Conquistadors.[1]
In October 1959, at the time of the revolution, Maria Teresa Mestre left Cuba with her parents. The family settled in New York City, New York, where, as a young girl, she was a pupil at Marymount School. From 1961 she carried on her studies at the Lycée Français. In her childhood, Maria Teresa Mestre took ballet and singing courses. She practices skiing, ice-skating and water sports. She lived in New York City, Santander, Spain and Geneva, where she met the Grand Duke.
In 1980 she graduated from the University of Geneva in political sciences. Miss Mestre met Prince Henri at this university. For four years they both carried on similar studies, working sometimes in the same study groups. Miss Mestre was for instance, the author of a report comparing legislation concerning women and motherhood within the European Union.
[edit] Social and human interests
During the same period she took an ever increasing interest in social and human problems, following the family tradition which had allegedly brought her grandparents to devote themselves to philanthropy and cultural tasks in Cuba.
Besides her studies, Miss Mestre was a member of a group in Geneva taking interest in the well-being of residents of retirement homes. She also taught children in a Geneva classroom.
As a native Cuban, Spanish is her native language, and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa knows French thoroughly, having carried on her studies at the French School (Lycée Français) and in Switzerland. When she was young, she learned English. After her marriage she learned Luxembourgish, and she also speaks German and Italian.
In 2006, the Grand Duchess received the Path to Peace Award from a Holy See Foundation for her "relentless contribution to humanitarian causes."
She is the President of the Luxembourg Red Cross.

Meanwhile, back in Miami....
[UPDATED]
Just to remind you of the "maletagate" trial in Miami that Miguel is covering in loving detail.

While you read all the juicy details on how corruption works and how the new boliburguesia has been happily sacking the country you can wonder how come the only government of the three that pretends not to be officially concerned is the guiltiest one, the Chavez administration. As far as they are concerned it is just yet another media manipulation. Now, that argument could have at shred of verisimilitude if the Venezuelan government on occasion would nail someone from its ranks for corruption. But we know from 10, TEN, years of experience, that the worst that happens to corrupt chavista officials is that they disappear from the public eye, or even get an embassy somewhere to enjoy their loot away from scrutiny. Heck, EVEN in Argentina on occasion someone goes to jail for corruption!

But then maybe I have it all wrong and what we should think about is how effective it is to use a checkbook freely to control and vilify a country. Because make no mistake, the Miami trial on chavismo abjection is not causing much of a stir in Venezuela´s masses: people here seem more interested in finding ways to get their share of the loot than pursuing criminals. Maybe Chavez has won the final immoral battle but we just do not know it yet: Chavez is a thief but he is OUR thief.

We do get what we deserve after all.

1980s
Another large wave (an estimated 125,000 people) of Cuban immigration occurred in the early 1980s with the Mariel boatlifts. Along with the 125,000 immigrants came 25,000 criminals, mentally ill, and other dregs among Cuban society which Fidel Castro knowingly infiltrated into the country to corrupt the so-called "American Imperialist Society". Some of the "Marielitos" became prosperous through their own efforts, with government assistance and assistance from earlier immigrants, relatives and charitable organizations.

The City of Miami recently gave the keys of the city to a degenerate Cuban ref, ex drug dealer and twice arrested for DUI (Pitbull). Pitbull personifies Cuban refs in Miami to a tee....he's short, loud, dumb, talks like an idiot, has no class and is extremely narcissistic and has driving convictions.

Pride of Westchester, Hialeah or Little Havana, I think.

Oh yes we received lots of aid my grandmother will attest to that but shhhh we don't like others to know ESP since most of us are such extremist right wing voters now who don't want others now to get a thing.

I had family relatives get FREE medical care- food stamps-housing,etc all without being citizens .

Ahh yes the Wet foot dry foot policy has worked well for us. We are the ONLY group to get this .

Sure you could say we are now hypocrites but we prefer to call it "this thing of ours".

Sadly, people like him have ruined Miami. Miami makes 90% of the "top 5 worst" lists for a reason.....idiots like him and their self-serving, insular, narcissistic ideologies.
