‘Money over love’ for these four

‘Money over love’ for these four

The expression “selling your sold to the devil” seems appropriate when talking of south Florida members of congress Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Curbelo and to a lesser extent Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Each of these south Florida politicians has at least 600,000 constituents they pretend to represent, but instead they use as collateral in a high stakes game of poker played with the devil.

Taking a step back to the future

Taking a step back to the future

Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Curbelo, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen want to assure that they starve the Cuban people to death. They understand that healthy relations between our two countries would mean missing out on the gravy train of millions of dollars provided by the U.S.’s so-called democracy-building programs that are handouts run through their sticky hands.

The made for Miami fairy tale of Marco the good vs. Cabello the bad

It’s hard to comprehend how people still believe Marco Rubio, or swallow the manufactured PR stunts that the press fall for that paint a picture of the U.S. senator from West Miami as the hero of some tall tale. Over the years Miami has been ransacked by scoundrels who use stories — like the one being woven by Little Marco — in order to divert our attention from the real culprits who pilfer from our city.

Give Trump credit for creating the worst, yet most successful, reality show of all time

The U.S. has become the equivalent of one of those Spanish language telenovelas, with a mix of Kerry Washington’s Amanda Pope in the TV series “Scandal,” and just a touch of the 1980s television prime time love-hate family feud fueled by wealth, “Dynasty.”
