Naturally, you wouldn't know that hard work brings success. Although you do work hard at discrediting anything that Cuba succeeds at,(with NO SUCCESS) B.B., I might add. Your US-financed-editorials, are the comic section that I turn to first, when I come to the Topix Site, simply Hilarious! It's amazing how you try to twist the stories, or headlines, to the exact opposite of the truth.

It's a marvelous thing, common sense, I really don't understand how YOU can function without it, Multi-Names. It's not something you can buy, you either have it or you don't. I'm terribly sorry for your loss, my friend.

Only Multi-Names from New Jersey calls me Jill ,when he can't think of a suitable rebuttal,(which is most of the time). No, the last time I looked at the appropriate parts, I was not a female. I actually am named Donald, and yes I live in Canada. I have lived here all my life (so far, for 73 years anyway). Years ago, I wouldn't have said boo! regarding American Policies around the world. But after seeing what they are doing to torture human beings in secret Detainment centres hidden around the world (to avoid following the Geneva Conventions regarding torture) and using drones and killing people with gay abandon everywhere. I have made up my mind to speak up about American injustice anywhere that I find it going on. At the end of the second world war, America was the prime Respondent to Have all countries follow the Geneva Convention Rules. Now your government is operating at 180 degrees from your constitution, AND the Geneva Convention Rules of Engagement. HOW FAR ARE YOU, THE CITIZENS OF UNITED STATES, GOING TO LET THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT DISRUPT THE ORDER OF THIS PLANET?

Batista's spirit is very much alive in the right wing Miami Cuban junta with their self serving and corrupt hypocrite politicos and their failed policies.

These people have been a political cancer for USA.
