Bush Family Owned Sugar Cane Plantations in Cuba?
Just heard so by a caller on Randi's show with fill-in, Thom Hartmann. Now I see why Bush supporters are brainwashed into hating Castro so much. The Bush family should be financially dissolved.

1. This family has done more damage to America...
than Britain, Spain, Japan and bin Laden combined.

2. You Said It
It's unbelievable how corrupt and scandalous the Bush family is.

3. The Wikipedia entry for the Walker sugar Cuban connection:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zapata_Corporation

<snip>
Kevin Phillips, in American Dynasty, discusses George Bush Sr.'s "highly likely" peripheral role in the Bay of Pigs fiasco. He points to the leadership role of Bush's fellow Skull and Bones alumni in organizing the operation. He notes an additional personal factor for Bush: the Walker side of the family (who initially funded Zapata Corporation) had lost a small fortune when Fidel Castro nationalized their West Indies Sugar Co. Edwin Pauley was "known for CIA connections," according to Phillips, it was Pauley who put Pemargo's Diaz and Bush together.

5. I'm going to have to the audiobook, American Dynasty, I believe it
was called. I have the Kitty Kelly book which Thom Hartmann said was similar in facts, but Kelly's book had gossip. Hmmmm.

The American Dynasty book was just the facts. If even half of Kelly's book is true, this family has to be working the media to keep their treason suppressed. That's what it is, treason.

8. typo: I need to get it. I just have Kitty Kelly's audiobook, The Family.
That was good. I'm relistening to Dean's Conservatives Without Conscience a few more times and then I'll get American Dynasty.
