Some things never change... but they will!


Over 15 Cuban pro-democracy activists have been brutally beaten and arrested outside of a Santa Clara hospital, where the lives of two hunger strikers hang in the balance.

Last week, Rolando Ferrer Espinosa and Alcides Rivera Rodríguez were taken to a hospital in the central city of Santa Clara, pursuant to more than 30 days on a hunger strike demanding an end to the Castro regime's violence against peaceful protesters.

Pro-democracy activists have been camped out in front of the hospital, day and night, concerned for the well-being of the hunger strikers.

Amongst those arrested were Rivera Rodriguez's own wife, Idania Yánez Contreras, as well as Jorge Luis García Pérez (Antúnez), Yris Pérez Aguilera, Damaris Moya Portieles, Julio Columbié Batista and Yanisbel Valido.
The end of the brutal Castro dictatorship is near... they know it too, and it won't be pretty.

Reagan statue will be unveiled today

The 9 foot tall statue of Ronaldus Magnus at DCA was designed by Chas Fagan, who also has created statues of Reagan that stand in the U.S. Capitol, at Grosvenor Square in London and at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

Five gets you ten that art critics will hate it (the statue that is...).
