U.S. and Cuba – Friends After 50 years?

So the U.S. and Cuba are friends again? Thank you President Obama for listening to me, though as in most things, it took the U..S Government 5 years too long to act. Now, at least, a few hundred old Cuban-Americans in South Florida no longer dictate policy for a nation of 300 million. Finally, things are beginning to make sense.

Yes, after a trip to Cuba, it was the only logical conclusion any rational human being could come to. It was time, past time, to change policy towards Cuba. See my 1st blog post on the subject HERE ?

But as I was saw, the Cuban government is as corrupt and incompetent as it gets. As I witnessed when they arrested some of the punks or “Los Freakies” (The Freaks) as they are often referred to in Havana, when speaking with me on camera.

It’s been almost exactly 5 years since I was in Havana, interviewing these punks and some were carted off to jail for God knows how long.

Now, today, the U.S. has announced they will begin to “normalize” relations with Cuba. Great!

I thought it would be a good time to remind you of this video back when this blog was just getting off the ground.

I feel like throwing a party? You in?

Kvazimodo’s New Video with Lyrics

Lyrics (English Translation) 
Years pass, all things
we are silent, it will no longer be able to

Ask yourself why you put up with
now show me everything, everything you think

Raise your voice (hey hey hey)
Raise your hand
Against the system now
Raise your voice
Raise your hand
REVOLUTION

With eyes take off your blindfold
Another person’s hand is now in your pocket

Income tax at all, the breathing
I will no longer so, so can not

Raise your voice (hey hey hey)
Raise your hand
Against the system now
Raise your voice
Raise your hand
REVOLUTION (x2)
