The Cubanology OP/ED: Founding Fathers: Politically Right or Left?

Left-RightPoliticalArticle

There is a tendency (especially in today’s political climate) to frame the Founders in “right” or “left” terms. I am pretty confident that the vast majority colonial Americans did not see the world, or the framing of the Republic in right and left terms. The whole notion of “right” and “left” is a European construct […]

The Cubanology OP/ED Blog: China vs America or “Two de Force” why not?

TwodeForce

It is possible and I’m sure it has crossed your mind many of times. For a matter of fact, with the present condition of the US economy and coupled with the inability to pay the Chinese debt, it most certainly leans more towards “Realistic.” I have thought about the American dollar and its elasticity.

The Cubanology Blog: The difference between Socialism and Communism is 8 years

socialismArticle

Taking into consideration the world economy and the manner society is structured at the present moment, a person with considerable power, would need 8 years to convert a nation into a Communist system.

LybianFighterPlane

Gadhafi is a murderer, a killer, he has been torturing the Libyan people for so long. Gadhafi must go! This is where all the European so-called leaders stood, condemning Gadhafi when he decided to stay in Libya. The “rebel forces”, they call them, I don’t. I call them “freedom fighters” and they need help. They […]

Cubanology OP/ED Blog: Is “Cloud Seeding” too far-fetching?

CloudSeeding

Can this be possible? Is it possible to control rainfall and if so, how? Well, this question has been answered already and not the real intention of this mini-research project here.

dell-latitude-xt-tablet-pc

I always wondered why people would be satisfied and so comfortable with surfing on the internet with a the tiny screen a phone provides, never mind with watching a video.
