Wisdom courtesy of Thomas Sowell

"Barack Obama seems determined to repeat every disastrous mistake of the 1930s, at home and abroad. He has already repeated Herbert Hoover's policy of raising taxes on high income earners, FDR's policy of trying to micro-manage the economy and Neville Chamberlain's policy of seeking dialogues with hostile nations while downplaying the dangers they represent. "

"...his favorable reception during his tour in Europe may be the most enthusiastic international acclaim for a democratic government leader since Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich in 1938, proclaiming 'peace in our time.'"

"How a man who holds the entire population of a country as his prisoners, and punishes the families of those who escape, can be admired by people who call themselves liberals is one of the many wonders of the human mind's ability to rationalize. Yet such is the case with Fidel Castro."

You know, I was really having a tough time understanding the recent infatuation of a certain group from Congress who call themselves "The Black Caucus" which is actually I believe quite rsacist in nature, but in any case why they are so pro-Castro boggles the mind!

If they think he is so wonderful and Cuba is great of a place to live, why don't they just simply move there?

Anonymous, I find it unlikely that a dictator -- even one like Castro -- with the power to do whatever he wants, would allow a group of individuals as annoyingly self-righteous and ignorant as the so-called "Black Caucus" to immigrate to his country. Its too bad that our dictator lauds such frauds.
