Thoughts for Tonight


Let’s say that Castro had been ahead of a bigger country. I don’t mean that offensively, but I mean a real big country not isolated. Not an island. But let’s say a country like… Ohhhh… Ummm… Venezuela? Not huge, but... bigger than Cuba... and connected to other countries.

And let’s say that Castro had garnered mucho respect from all the South American countries… even let’s say… one that is not South American like...ohhhh… ummm…. Mexico?

Would we be nervous?

Mexico that has so many issues, that seem to flood into this country, as is. Let’s say it ended up going communist. Let’s say a lot of the South American countries went communist, with Venezuela leading the way and it permeated up to the North American continent to Mexico.

It’s a lot different having Cuba communist than Mexico. And it’s a bit different having many many South American countries communist than the old USSR… so close and so many ties to our country.

That’s been what I’ve been pondering tonight.

‘lest you think I spend all my time pondering what my boys have in store for me the next day. My thoughts do run a bit deeper… not much… but a bit.

Yow - that's a truly ugly thought there, Bou. Not that I'm sleeping great anywho, but that sure isn't going to help. Here I thought I was paranoid ... ya got me beat!
