Cuba shuts food stores, factories

Perhaps it’s vacation time in the People’s Paradise? Food stores shut down and apparently staying shut. Factories are shutting down across the island and, in an amazing break from tradition, the Cubans don’t blame Bush – they’ll let American liberals do that.

A report in official Cuban newspapers cited President Raul Castro as saying the island is struggling through a “very serious” crisis and hinted that further belt-tightening was on the way.

 President Raul Castro scolded Cubans in a national address Sunday to work harder because they have no one to blame but themselves.

He’s right, of course. So long as the Cuban people let blook sucking parasites like the Castros and their communist thugs run the country, they’ll continue to have food shortages and a miserable living standard.

Would a liberal please explain this?

Australia arrests four Somali musslemen terrorists planning an attack on an Australian military base in Australia. I know there’s a reason why Somalians would want to kill Australians at home, but I just can’t see it. Help me out here, would you?

Trump’s still second class compared to Ogilvy

The Donald has chopped $20 million from the price of a penthouse in NYC and is willing to let it go for just $31 million (hint: I’d negotiate a bit more). Here in Greenwich we laugh at suchfeeble attempts at price cutting because we hold the record, $50 million off Leona’s place. And by the time that deal is finally done and someone is paid to take the place off the Helmsley estate’s hands, we’ll be king of the world!

Mean spirited and dangerous?

That’s what they’re saying about this Obama poster that’s popping up in LA. Funny, nothing was said when Bush was depicted as a Nazi, so why the outrage of calling the Messiah a socialist?

Suicide is painless so we’re making it mandatory

Mickey Kaus, a liberal who supports (I think) ObamaCare, is amazed that the Democrats were dumb enough to slip a provision into the health care bill (that Jim Himes voted for but has yet to read) calling for voluntary, subsized suicide counseling for old folks who don’t want to burden their country with expensive end of life treatment. Kaus describes it as the camel’s nose under the tent, I say it’s the shape of things to come. Too bad the ice floes have all melted or we could just shove the old farts out on them and let them drift into oblivion.

Well okay, I’m sure it’s news I can use, but why is it in Greenwich Time?

Wyoming soda ash mine to lay off workers. I’d prefer a story about Patriot Bank’s staving off collapse by finding a mystery investor with $55 million, but I suppose Wyoming’s soda ash problems will have to do.

The trouble with short sales

They’re pure misery, as this article details.

UPDATE: the stove timer was bonging as I posted this and I didn’t have time to include the link to my favorite Arizona real estate blogger, Tucson Foothills, who originally came up with the story. Now I have.
