Obama thinks we should thank him

Egocentric and megalomaniac our POTUS? Naahh...

After raising 2.5 millions in Miami - one of the events was held at Emilio & Gloria Estefan's house in Miami Beach - Obama mocked the Tea Party protesters on Tax Day, saying that we should thank him because he has cut taxes instead.

Can someone, please, find this man's math teacher and FIRE him? - if you can bundle  a BOGO with the teacher and the student, please, do so!!!

Are you ready to bend over to Uncle Sam?

Never before with such a high level of unwillingness.

But I am.

Today is Tax's Day. But more importantly, it's Tea Party Protest Day!

By now, most common sense Americans know about the smears, slurs, and efforts to discredit the Tea Party movement, all over the MSM and the liberal minds that are taking our country towards the path to this crazy light-socialism.

So first, let’s lighten up the day:

Then, let’s get moving. Two big Tea Party protest will be taking place in Colorado.

The first one, happening right now in the steps of the state’s capital building, is being live streamed at People’s Press Collective. You can also follow the live conversation in Twitter at #coteaparty.

The second one will start at 5 pm in Fort Collins – Washington Park, 301 Maple Street, behind City Hall.

The key this year is that the Tea Party smear movement is in panic mode, and they have publicly announced they will sabotage the protests.

Get yourself ready to stop the smear merchants with this quick guide:

Happy Tea Party Protest Day!

Sen. Jim DeMint backs Ken Buck’s race for US Senate

Late last night, a friend forwarded me the email from Ken Buck’s campaign with the news: Sen. Jim DeMint, Republican from South Carolina, announced his endorsement of Buck’s race for the US Senate.

This morning, The Greeley Tribune and The Denver Post were on it.

Needless to say, the underdog of this race – who happens to be my District’s Attorney in Weld County – got a huge boost.

The money quote?
“I haven't seen anything like what's happening in Colorado since Marco Rubio in Florida.”

(Do I have to mention that this Cubanita over here is twice as proud?)

I remember I was briefly introduced to Ken Buck a few years ago, when I was the reporter and copy editor for the local weekly newspaper – in Spanish. Those were the days when the paper’s launching was met with a lot of resistance from the community. And a lot of rude and senseless anonymous comments in The Greeley Tribune’s website. I remember of even being accused of wanting to bring communism to the town… Duh?! I left Cuba to escape FROM communism!

Anyway, maybe because of this or maybe because of deep rooted stereotypes against Republican politicians in newsrooms, I was left with the impression he didn’t like us that much.

Despite that, since he launched his campaign for the US Senate, I liked it.

I’ve seen his work as DA pursuing not-so-popular cases in the name of the rule of law and the safety of our community (local gangs, ID theft by undocumented immigrants linked to tax returns, the ICE raids in the Swift meatpacking plant, and the murder of a Latina transgender girl). So far, he has proven to be a commonsense conservative, which is what we need in this country now. And I happen to agree with most of his stands on issues.

Buck has gotten the support of the local Tea Party activists and I’m glad he has been bumped to the national scene with DeMint support. He would be a great option to go green, and recycle Michael “Miguelito” Bennet.

Who knows? Maybe we’ll have a chance to redo the introductions… after all, if you go back to stereotypes, nobody would even either imagine that I was not your typical liberal Latina working in a newsroom.

[But... wait... the media - and in overall American's impression - doesn't see us, Cuban Americans, as Hispanic or Latinos, you know, we are some sort of white sugar-enriched dudes, despite the lack of real basis for that, I was born and raised under Castro's communist dictatorship... never mind. I'm babbling over here...]

Go Buck!

An (un) healthy round-up of current affairs...

How do you spell socialism in English?
Higher - taxes = redistribution - of - wealth

So, you were honestly thinking that it was about reforming the US system of delivering health care.
Yeah, sure.

To keep up the mood, here is a WSJ take on how this (power-grab) law will affect Medicare. Please, take note of these statements:
... upper-income participants should prepare for higher premiums and, in some cases, higher taxes, too.
For some Medicare recipients, the health-care legislation also will impose higher costs...
Others will be hit with tax increases...

Redistribution of wealth clearly spelled and easy to understand, even for me, that communicate on an "English-with-barrier" basis.

Lastly, I will leave you with a professional take:
The CEO of the Cleveland's Clinic weights in the so called health care reform legislation.

The Foundry is compiling for you the daily side effect of Obamacare.

Have at it.
Cubanita is busy moving, working, raising a child, teaching Spanish, trying to relax...And honestly, I am getting sick and tired of all the crap that surround us lately.
