Two airlines already
calling it quits in Cuba

USA Today, by Ben Mutzabaugh

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/15/2017 5:05:50 PM

Two U.S. airlines are pulling out of Cuba, ending service to the nation only about six months after regular passenger flights resumed for the first time in nearly 50 years. Silver Airways is dropping all nine of its planned routes to the nation by April 22. And low-cost carrier Frontier will do the same, dropping its Miami-Havana route on June 4. In doing so, both Frontier and Silver -- a small regional carrier -- blamed overcapacity on the recently allowed service between the nations. Additionally, Frontier found the cost of operating in Havana "exceeded our initial assumptions," spokesman Jim Faulkner said

Because you have dollars, Yanqi.

Too many empty seats - 300% overcapacity. Way overrated as a destination. A place only libtards would love. Another Obama/Hillary triumph of diplomacy. We´re talking legacy material here, folks.

One day, I´d say Havana will be a lucrative destination for airlines--- not while R. Castro and his pals are in charge, though.

No surprise. Still a hellhole after all those Castro years, and no end in sight. They were looking to tourism to give them a boost. Ha! We can see slums here. Maybe not quite so slummy as Cuba’s, but we don’t have to take plane to see them. And stay in them.

The leftover 1950´s cars are quaint,... until you have to ride in them.

Soldiers toting AK-47s on the street have a way of harshing your mellow.

Better to vacation in Colorado, Oregon or Washington and get baked legally.

What it´s like to eat dinner at

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as

HELENA, Mont. — Donald Trump Jr. will be targeting more than just Montana´s Republican voters on Friday and Saturday when he helps Greg Gianforte campaign for an open U.S. House seat. A prairie dog hunt is also on the agenda for the four-city tour for President Donald Trump´s son and Gianforte, a technology entrepreneur up against Democrat Rob Quist in the May 25 election for the seat vacated by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.

A massive power outage in San Francisco caused a blackout Friday morning in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a BART station and a federal courthouse, officials said. A spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power and that there had been a fire at a substation on Larkin Street. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the fire caused the outage, which swept through the city after 9 a.m., or was ignited as a result of the outage. The San Francisco Fire Department was responding

A candidate running for a seat on the Minneapolis City Council is accusing the incumbent, Ward 9 Representative Alondra Cano, of attempting to create a racial divide by challenging nearly every East African delegate to the 9th Ward DFL Convention on April 29. Mohamed Farah issued a press release stating Trish Welte, a campaign manager for Cano, filed a challenge to 101 delegates and alternates to the convention, which is scheduled to be held at Minneapolis South High School. Of those 101 challenges, 90 are to delegates with East African surnames. Farah, the executive director of the Somali nonprofit Ka Joog, went on

Senator Elizabeth Warren launched another attack on U.S. President Donald Trump on April 19, describing his election win as partly the result of an “ugly stew of racism” on the MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show. (Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.” Warren also attacked the president for

BOZEMAN, Mont. — Rob Quist surveyed his audience last week at an annual powwow of Montana’s Native American tribes, a kaleidoscope of feathers, moccasins and beads, before turning his thoughts to a very different audience, far to the east: the national Democratic Party. “They’ve been on the sidelines a little too long, and it’s time for them to get in the game,” said Mr. Quist, the banjo-playing Democratic nominee in a special May election to fill Montana’s at-large House seat. But, he predicted, “they’re coming in.” They may have little choice. After a hard-fought campaign to fill a House seat

LOUISVILLE — Earlier this week, before heading downstairs to speak to nearly three thousand Kentuckians, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) reminisced about his 2016 presidential campaign. After he had gained steam, and his rallies had become arena-size events, he was struck by the difference between his crowds and those at Democratic Party fundraisers. “We’d have a rally with five or ten thousand young people out, a great deal of energy,” Sanders said between bites of a steak sandwich. “Then I’d walk into a room and there’d be a thousand people from the Democratic Party. You were in two different worlds —

ATLANTA - The Georgia special election for the 6th Congressional District will go to a runoff after Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff failed to reach more than 50 percent of the vote Tuesday night. Ossoff received 48 percent of the vote, which is higher than previously predicted. Republican Karen Handel got nearly 20 percent. Karen Handel arrived to a hero´s welcome at her election party in Roswell. She was all smiles, but admitted to being a little nervous about the outcome of what she says has been a very competitive race. What Handel told the crowd is getting major buzz Wednesday morning.

Voting machines were reported stolen a day before Georgia’s special congressional election, according to a new report. The equipment was stolen last Saturday evening from a Cobb County precinct manager’s vehicle, Channel 2 Action News said Monday. He did not immediately report the theft. “It is unacceptable that the Cobb County Elections Office waited two days to notify my office of this theft,” Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a statement. (Snip) Democrats are casting the race as a referendum on Trump and his administration’s policies, with the party hoping to turn the reliably-red Georgia blue this year. Georgia

Many of the 1,000 people who attended Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s town hall Monday in San Francisco didn’t necessarily disagree with her, they just wanted her to be louder and more aggressive in opposing the Trump administration. (Snip) While Feinstein was dropping Capitol Hill-speak phrases like “an omnibus” — a bill that addresses multiple issues — and a “CR” — continuing resolution, a type of appropriations legislation — audience members were demanding she speak out against the “fascists in the White House” and commit to a single payer health plan. “I’m not there yet” she said on single payer.

With more than 99 percent of the ballots counted, 51.34 percent voted "yes" to increase Erdogan´s role -- 24,789,242 votes -- compared with 48.667 percent that cast "no" -- 23,499,390 -- in the 18-article proposal, according to the state-run Anadolu Agency. The turnout was 87 percent. (Snip) The prime minister post would be abolished after the 2019 national elections if the referendum passes.

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University.

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said.

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
