Take it Suave Tio Sam. #4thofjuly 2020

 A quote de Thomas Jefferson, 
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
It is its natural manure." 

This was the article BB wrote for the July edition of Conexion.
It's not online yet, but Babushka thinks it's important y'all see it for the fourth.  


Take it Suave Tio Sam

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls! 
This year Babushka has likened Mother’s Day to Mother Earth and Father’s Day to Father Time, so naturally for July 4th, who better than Tio Sam? That dear, querido uncle with his little off center jokes, but always with smiles and a quick dulcesito. This is how we remembered him from our childhood, but with adulthood a more comprehensive composition was found.


2020 , this has not been the best of years for our nation. BB is not thinking of the Corona Covid19 pandemic when she writes that. Like all familias, there are differences and squabbles in the Estados Unidos de Norte America, racism being one that we all probably face each day. This one is deep rooted and multileveled, either subtle or straight out to our caras,  for we as Hispanos are also singled out many times, but in the end we MUST realize and remember that we are part of the same family. This is our home, our casa. We are ALL Americans. And though Babushka isn’t fond of the current nonpeace and hostilities, she is fond of the principles this country was based on. Grateful for the sentiments and written rules that give us the bases to ask for and even demand our rights.


The 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the US Constitution, also known as the Reconstruction Amendments, came despues del Civil War Americano. They are as follows-

AMENDMENT XIII - Passed by Congress on 31 January 1865; Ratified 6 December 1865  
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. 

AMENDMENT XIV -Passed by Congress 13 June 1866; Ratified 9 July 1868 
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws… 

AMENDMENT XV -Passed by Congress 26 February 1869; Ratified 3 February 1870 
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude…

A little lengthier and detailed than most of BB’s posts, but this is out of Amor that Babushka shares. She shares the knowledge and truth of our rights, just as she believes in the knowledge and truth of America. Her belief and knowing that we are all familia living here and that un dia Tio Sam will also believe and know this, con soul and corazon.


Hoping your July 4th is happy and heartfelt.

Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.

#TBT A BB Bounceback - Gracias Tio Sam & Happy Birthday America !

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!  
This was a post originally written in 2012. Time has changed, but BB's sentiment is igual. #GodBlessAmerica




Thank You USA Statue of Liberty

If you've been following Babushka you know I'm all about the positive, wonderful things in life. So if you think this is a political statement JU SO FONII!!! Ok, si, maybe a little, but mainly it's about gratitude. Gratitude to a country that welcomed and still welcomes my people from Cuba.


Mil Gracias to you mi querido USA,
 for as a first generation Cuban American I can never say it enough.


 I know what my fate would have been if you hadn't welcomed my family.



MY CHILDHOOD

Cuban Children Communist Indoctrination
Children indoctrinated into Communism


MY YOUTH

Cuban woman in Communist Control
Control in all categories


MY SHOPPING LIST

STORES TO SHOP
Cuban Store Stock
Slim Selection




And though we are all children of immigrants,
I only need to look 90 miles away to see where I would have been

 and know what I would have done.


Mariel Boatlift
Exodo del Mariel



Feliz Cumpleaños America,  Happy 4th of July!
Celebrate your freedom with pride and cheer.

For my part, I'm adding gratitude to the celebration.



Bohemian Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

P.S.  The photos were found on Pinterest, some on Cuban groups on Feibu.  Perdoname that I didn't find or write down the exact sources.  The author of the video is Gianluca Zanna, a former Italian Immigrant.

About The Movie



Four Kids and It is a charming and whimsical story featuring a star-studded cast including Paula Patton and Matthew Goode with Russell Brand and the voice of Academy Award® winner Michael Caine. Based on iconic children’s author Jaqueline Wilson’s Four Children and It, the story is a modern twist based on E. Nesbit’s 1902 classic Five Children and It, and also stars Teddie Malleson-Allen, Ashley Aufderheide, Billy Jenkins, and Ellie-Mae Siame. The film adaptation is directed by Andy De Emmony and written by Simon Lewis.

Four Kids and It Fantasy

On a seaside holiday, four kids from a blended family visit the beach, where they discover a floppy-eared creature that grants their wishes. But there’s a catch: the kids’ adventures in rock-climbing, pop stardom, and flying end promptly at sunset — leaving them in danger each time. Can they learn to control the magic before something dreadful happens?
