Source:CNN– Cubans protesting against their Communist Regime.
Source:The New Democrat
“Thousands have gathered in Cuba to protest a lack of freedom and the country’s worsening economic situation in the largest mass demonstration in decades. CNN’s Patrick Oppmann reports from Havana.”
This post is really about Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria O. Cortez, and other so-called Democratic Socialists in Congress (House and Senate) and their lack of any response about Cubans protesting against their Communist Regime.
If you really are a Democratic Socialist, then protesting not just against Communists and communism should be very easy for you. Perhaps not politically, especially with your Far-Left, but objectively and philosophically if you are what’s called a Democratic Socialist, you should even want to speak out against Communist regimes and their failures, as well as oppression, because you are supposed to believe in democratic socialism or social democracy, but not Marxist or Leninist-Communism.
The reason why so-called Democratic Socialists get lumped in with Communists, is because when Americans tend to think of Socialists, they tend to think of Cuba and Venezuela in the West, and the People’s Republic of China in the East and the Soviet Union of Russia during the Cold War. They don’t think of the social democracies like in Britain or in Scandinavia.
But what you get from Senator Sanders and Representative Cortez (the two leading Socialists in Congress) is that they rather talk about anything else other than the failures of communism in Cuba or in Senator Sanders case, he blames the failures and shortages in Cuba on anything and anyone else than the Communist Castro Regime in Cuba. Even though they call themselves Democratic Socialists.
I’m a blogger because I like writing about things I’m interested in and knowledgeable about. Which shouldn’t sound surprising, but blogging provides that immediate outlet for me and other bloggers to weigh in on what they’re thinking about and what they’re interested in. To put down on paper or computer words and feelings that they may struggle to get out of their mouths on the spot. To be able think about things and then express them.
That is what blogging and writing is about, at least when it comes to commentary. Writing as a reporter or biographer, is a bit different. Because it’s not so much about what the writer feels that is relevant unless they’re being asked about it. But what’s more important is what they know and how they know that based on their reporting.
An opportunity for blogger commentators to get things off their chest that perhaps they’re not able to do simply by speaking to people. That is my favorite thing about blogging to be able to immediately get things off my chest that I’m thinking about.
Blogging is the perfect form of communication for me, because I’m interested in so many different things and frankly knowledgeable about them. I write mostly about current affairs. Government and politics, public policy, history, but I’m also interested in sports especially sports history, as well as movies especially classic Hollywood and entertainers. Especially entertainers who’ve been around a long time and are from classic Hollywood. Today’s Hollywood and entertainment, not so much, but that is a subject for another piece.
And when you’re a blogger and you just read something that got your attention and were really interested in from either a positive or negative standpoint, or perhaps you just saw a movie or saw some story and you’re really interested in and knowledgeable about what you just saw, you can immediately weigh in on what you just saw. I mean to be a blogger all you really need is a computer and have something to say. Being able to write helps as well.
That is what blogging and writing is to me. The ability for people to write what they’re thinking and how they feel, as well as what they know. Which is the most important thing here, because even commentators need to know what they’re talking about to be successful and make a living at that. Whether they write or talk on TV or radio, or a combination of all those things.
That is what I’m going to do here and if you’re someone who has multiple interests and are interested in things besides who the latest hot celebrity is and who that person is seeing and why they’re in trouble now, or what the latest new technology is, then I hope you check out this blog. Because I cover a lot of different things here and not just government and politics, but history including Hollywood history and to a certain extent what’s going on there today. And you might even see a few pieces about so -called celebrity culture, but just from a a satiric viewpoint.
