Default Fidel Castro's Nephew in U.S. Congress

I heard this on the radio the other day. Never heard about it before, was kind of surprised.

Lincoln Diaz-Balart, the nephew of Castro's ex-wife has been a REPUBLICAN member of Congress since 1993.

He is retiring after this session, and his brother will be running for his open seat.

Just thought I would put this out there since there is so much debate about Socialists and Muslims influencing America right now.

You can do your own search with his name to see the family connection.

uhm... I expected a bit more Pete - your posts, while not always on the same page as my own beliefs are typically well reasoned and rational. Are you that bored that you're starting to troll?

"Castro's ex-wife's nephew."

Seriously?

I mean, comme ooooooon - at least point out something 'original' like that Arnold Schwarzenegger claims to be a Republican, but married into as devout a Democratic family as can be, and hails from Austria, where his father was a member of the Nazi party...

Yea, I was bored. Did I at least entertain you for a moment or two?

I think according to RyeBread's definition, everything posted on this board is trolling.
