  • I, love them why? I am a lover of truth and Fidel as well as all he has done for Cuba ( i would rather Cuba not be like Puerto Rico)
    People who have neevr lived here can only talk the writers do not live in Cuba they live elsewhere writing from afar about what they are told by the Miami right Go figure

  • Does anybody else find these paintings tacky at best and down-right creepy at worst? Isn’t this taking the Personality Cult a bit far?

    Actually, I’d like to paint one of those clichéd black velvet paintings of dogs playing poker, with Fidel at the table. The other dogs could be painted to look like Kennedy, Khrushchev and Che, while the poker chips would be missiles. Yeah, that would be good art. ////!
