They write from Miami

[from Babalu blog’s Carlos Eire]

Alas, there is often little or no justice in this world. Stalin and Mao never came anywhere near paying for crimes of such magnitude that they cannot really be fathomed except as statistics. But then, even if those monsters had been called to account, how could they possibly have paid? What punishment, what suffering, no matter how horrible, could they have been put through that would have made up for the suffering and destruction of millions? Castro’s victims are numerically less, since he had far fewer subjects in his domain, but proportionately their amount is as great or greater. And yet, to the appalled and bitter astonishment of the Cuban people, most of the world blithely condoned and effectively enabled Castro’s deeds, not just at the romantic and delirious beginning but all along, down to the present day.[..]

So Fidel is dead, but only because of a biological imperative–there is no victory in it. He lasted plenty and caused incalculable harm, much more than will ever be fully known or documented, let alone duly acknowledged (especially by those directly or indirectly complicit in it). He got his way, after all. Many of his victims or their descendants may feast and toast over his demise, which no one is entitled to begrudge them, but I do not feel like celebrating. It is much too little, far too late. The awful damage is done, and much of it cannot be undone. However, while the tyrant cheated human justice, he cannot escape God’s. May Cuba manage, in time, to exorcise the evil personified, fostered and propagated by this abominable man, surely the worst and most destructive one in Cuba’s history.

…searching my own comments in blogosphere, as a reminder to myself [“oh, where did I said something like this before?!”], I found this amusing exchange.

A biscuit to first reader who’ll spot the name of [unimaginable-then] our President Elect.

Бродила по весям, и нашла интересное: обамский электорат подводит итоги его правления.  В десятке комментов и центристы высказались, и реалисты, и даже критик слева:

Он пришёл к власти во время финансового кризиса и с самого начала просрал свой огромный политический капитал (у кого память не отшибло, должны помнить беспрецедентный энтузиазм большинства американцев), назначив идеологических ДЕрегуляторов на ключевые финансовые посты, НЕ реформировав биржевую систему и т.д., т.е. делая прямо противоположное своим предвыборным обещаниям. Посмотри конец документального фильма “Inside job” про этот кризис, там всё чётко изложено про его практическое предательство интересов простых американцев. По всей вероятности, его напугали, и он испугался. У него была историческая возможность подняться до уровня Франклина Рузвельта, он в реальности опустился до уровня предшествующего ему Имбецила. Он НЕ лидер. Единственное, на что ему хватило храбрости после 6 лет набирания последней, это договор с Ираном. Тем более, что это в прямых и непосредственных интересах США, а стопорилось исключительно из-за израильского лобби, которое, как и всегда, плевать хотело на прямые интересы Америки. То, что он всё-таки пробил этот договор, что-то абсолютно НЕтипичное для слабака Обамы. Это несомненный плюс. Ну и восстановление связей с Кубой.

Это замечательно, что ни слово, то клад. Вот что нас ждёт если ХиллБилл вернутся в Белый Дом.

Ну и Аннушка-гейша, как всегда, явление альтернативного мышления:

где была экономика, да и вообще положение внутри страны и вне ее 8 лет назад, и где сейчас. По-моему, тут все очевидно. Он вытащил тихой сапой страну из ямы.
Обамакер, при том сопротивлении, которое он вызвал, тоже.
Гуантанамо – было шестьсот заключенных, осталось меньше ста, и обещает закрыть совсем.  Верховные судьи.

Main…

impression after visiting the Capital:
bums and beggars are everywhere. And they are all Blacks. Black lives matter, right, Mr. President?

Главное впечатление визита в столицу: огромные полчища чёрных нищих и бомжей. Закономерный исход 8-летнего правления расиста-социалиста.

QotD

I find trump and obama to be very similar, with the primary difference being that trump is vulgar, whereas obama is polished. Both made asinine promises and were/are beloved by those that don’t bother thinking about whether the promises work.

[…]our guy [50+ low-middle-class majority voter-ETat] isn’t a fool. He’s been watching for 40 years as slick, eloquent people promise him whatever it is they can convince him he wants. He was there when lbj promised “guns and butter”, and a “great society”, and delivered dependency and crime instead. He was there when carter promised to curb unemployment and inflation, and delivered stagflation. He was there when nixon said “trust me”, when bush said “read my lips”, when W talked about “wmds”, and when obama talked about “change”. He has seen too many slick smooth talkers promising unicorn farts to him to trust another, and he’s under attack right out loud by people that say, in plain language that his day is over. … except that he never had a day, he worked hard for everything he ever got.

…, или Рыба Гниет с Головы.

Professor, as usual, doesn’t mince words in evaluating recent muslim shooting in San-Bernardino and Obamatollah* Administraiton’s reaction on that:

…Along with trashing the Second Amendment, the administration has its sights set on the First. No doubt the 5th can be jettisoned too, if guns or politically incorrect speech are involved.
* Very apt term proposed in the comments’ section.
