This is one of the worst books I have read It is full of lieshalf truths exaggerations self grandiosity self importancefalse ideology to cover up base desiresshameless display of the crudest animal instinct toward food clothing and other finer things in life AND WORST OF ALL SHAMELESS display HER BLATANT DISREGARD of her and her family s civic duty TOWARD THE SOCIETY THAT NURTURED HER AND HER FAMILY The amazing thing about this book is it is so full of lies almost in every pages Rarely one can find a book with so much lieshalf truths and contradictions It also is full of paranoia thoughts The readers were REPEATEDLY forewarned of a lot of calamities the evil dictator Fidel Castro will bring down upon the hapless victims her family was one but there was no climax no calamity ever fall down her family or any other Cubans other than the law breakers the anti revolutionary elementsIn fact there were many incidences in her memoir where the anti revolutionary attitudes were displayed in broad day light by her family and other Cubans were known by everybody aroundbut they were ignored tolerated by neighbors and government officials No secret service agent ever visit themno knock at the door and no one at least from her book ever was led away in the middle of the night disappeared forever THE AUTHOR IS SO DISHONESTSHE LIES WITH A STRAIGHT FACEEVERY ASPECT OF THIS MEMOIR IS THE VERY OPPOSITE OF THE TRUTHLIE NUMBER ONE The motive of her family immigration to the US was not ideological as she wanted the readers to believeShe wished to cloak her desire to flee Cuba to the US with a respectable and noble purpose of a family who left their fatherland because they disagreed with Castro s political ideology while in fact they were just simply wanted to seek a greener pasture in dollar and centCertainly political dissent persons are RESPECTABLE than mere beggarsAs a university professor no less how could she presented herself with the world as merely a lowly food and clothing seeker never mind she has had so much food to stuff into her mouth and fine clothing to wear in her former Cuba homeland according to her writing Source Her description of her birthday s dress and menu plus the story about a whole hog without hogwash her clever father has managed to drag home against state s regulation under the nose of the authority If only she knew she was far from being as honorable and famous as that Soviet writer Solzhenitsyn a true political dissenter He has never salivated copiously at the sight and smell of American delicacies like the Ojitos LIE NUMBER TWO The motive of the boat owner that brought her family among other Cubans to her HEAVEN the US OF A was indisputably to make money However Ojito without any shame without even a small trace of honesty lured the readers into her made believe yarn that reeked of bogus nobilityIt was full of hogwash the story of a guy who had to borrow a lot of money to buy and repair a boat to use it as his abode and as a tool to make a living then SUDDENLY overwhelmed with selfless compassion offered his boat to ferry a bunch of worthless Cubans across the ocean to unite with their eually worthless relatives who were living in Florida a trip that faced with tremendous risk for merely the pitiful expenses Full of sh if you want to know the truth this assessment is based on the opinion of Micheal More in his DOWNSIDE THIS Understandingly she was very vague about this financial arrangement trying to imply the boat owner a good SamaritanThe readers know better it smells fishy very fishyWe will never know the truth but however clever her weaving was under the circumstance surrounding this affair it was extremely unlikely that the boat owner got nothing for his badly needed serviceJust the cost of oil and gasoline Come on Ojito just exactly how much you and your worthless Cuban compatriots paid this guy The readers need to knowOil and gasoline my footShameless liarOnce she has lied she has to weave fantasy fabric to cover fantastic imaginationSo after many years after the tripSUDDENLY she found the urge to seek the fantastic captain to say thank to him hence the title of her memoir because according to hershe forgot to say or failed to express her profound gratitude to that saint of a man More white lies Another very upsetting thing was the extreme arrogance displayed by this guy the owner of Manana Ojito s Mayflower This redneck pushed or shoved or did some violent act toward the gun of a savage my term the Cuban soldier upon his embark into the dock so severely that injured the poor little savageDo you know the author reaction She didn t flinch Ain t said none despite it was so outrageous The poor savage ain t do none he was just happen to be where he was doing the duty of a soldier watching the coming on his country s soil of foreign boats a perfect normal duty of any soldierHe didn t have any threatening behavior or any behavior at all for that mater toward this redneck and the next thing he knew he was down the ground bleedingThe white devils Why are most of them so arrogant They never want to acknowledge that their race has never been superior in all aspects comparing to any other raceHistory is indisputable proofIn war alone they have never been the victor for very longAll their conuered races were eventually risen up threw off the white men s yoke and kicked em ass big timeAlmost all of their military conuests were temporary in durationIn the end all of their robbery ended up as failuresThey the Spaniard the Brit the French the American among others white devil empires eventually had to relinuish almost all of their colonies with few rare exceptions It is hard to believe a person of her intelligence failed to realize that the American pirate of this modern time are the same as the Spaniard of yesteryear Professor Ojito you are a despicable traitor of not only your fatherland but of all other heroic people of former white devil s colonies I spit on youLIE NUMBER THREE We will never know the truth about the fates of all her characters once they landed in that heaven on earth the U S of A because her description of them were sketchyBut from what I could glean from her writing the possible truth if there is such a concept could make one weptFor me I really wanted to cry albeit with disgust After all that scheming risking one s life one s family one s limbs to flee the Cuban hell hole then to ended up as miserable lonely jobless and spiritless exiles in that paradise as some of her heroes and heroins were she was the exception was rather anti climaxShe was the exception alright but not her father as she wanted the reader to believeShe liedThe female scoundrel The old man was perfectly fine while he was in that miserable Cuban hell hole He had a job doing some driving to sell some merchandise Unexplainably in one incidence he hit a tree with his closed fist being so frustrated with the delay of his petition to migrate to his cherished heavenReaders are hard pressed to comprehend his outburstAs for me it made me sick to see this despicable thirst of materialismSo what he was doing in his PARADISE now that he after much hard struggle managed to climb into it Being a good ward of the state a respected welfare recipient No according to his daughter the English Lit Professor he was driving the other welfare recipients to the clinics and back thank to his experience as driver Of course the Professor conveniently forgot to mention her father was collecting public assistance and at the same time was moonlighting for some pocket money never mind it was illegal to do soI can be wrong but I bet all my money not much though to itDRIVING SOME WELFARE RECIPIENTS WHO HAD VERY LITTLE DOUGH TO THE CLINICS AND BACK WAS A FULL TIME JOB Or was it for free If it was then he must have collecting public monetary assistance How honorable Professor Ojito use this platform to refute my injurious and false accusation Supply me and the readers of this platform the evidence to the contraryA letter from DSHS and income tax return forms of the related periodWe want to know the truthTO ADD THE INSULT TO THE INJURY let examine the glorious lives of several of her heroesWhat was the name of that guy who risked his life and that of his buddies who drove the bus owned by Cuban government to CRASH THROUGH THE BARRIER at the US embassy in order to gain asylum And another guy who rode a motorcycle to do the similar thing What were they ended up doing in their PARADISE If my memory does not failed me I hate to dig through that smelly pile of trash again to find the exact info they were leading a colorless spiritless and DOGONE IT PENNILESS existence in their glorious paradise What pity A bunch of worthless Cubans actually thousands of them together with their family members including children had to endure endless day and night inside the US embassy s compound without any life s necessity to seek political asylum What had became of them No doubt some of them end up as millionairs but most of them the bulk of them uneducated dumb illiterate dreamerslosers dimwits shameless low lives and a whole bunch of convicts released from Cuban jails what had became of them How sad some of them failed miserably in their cherished paradise some unfortunately ended up living in extreme destitute in SpainI have sympathy for these folks At least they never try to glorify their normal act of seeking a better lives never mind what their definition of better was and never mind what price they had to payBut to cloak her base desire of and better food clothing and housing by a bogus fake political aspiration is just downright despicable especially she had to denounce a nice guy like Castro Nice you might protest Fine here the truth Under Castro s socialist hell hole the good professor COULD HAVE STAYED IN CUBA BECAME JUST THE SAME ENGLISH LIT PROFESSOR my projecture according to her narrative her father could have stayed alsoand avoid the indignity of making line in the DSHS office and moonlighting as a driver but retain his previous salesman jobWhat according to her narrative under evil regime of that big bad guy Castro her family was in the possession in reality if not in paper a rather decent abode with all basic amenities with little monthly cost courtesy from the evil socialism of that big bad guy CastroThey had even managed to buy a much cherished and long anticipated Television after much saving and belt tighteningSo what all good things in life reuired hard work and perversion but at least your dignity is intact not tattered as when you make line in that OMG DSHS officeAnd Fidel the evil Fidelat least from her book is such a nice guy After I finish reading her trashy memoir I am really like him Perhaps it will disappointed Mirta Ojito but I can not help it Her description of Fidel give the reader a fine impression of Castro regardless of her intention of trying to portray him as Satan First of all Castro is an idealistic man a fine leaderHe fiercely loves his fatherland Cuba by the wayHe loves national independence hates corruption Batista whom he chased away after Batista amassed over one hundred million dollars to whom amazing enough Ojito family love that is in itself says a lot about Ojito family and their ideology namely cargoismBut it is too early to go into right now I will come back to this laterFor now Castro is really a great guy I do not know about you but I will entrust my family to him if situation arise reuiring it MIND YOU my opinion is based solely on her description and her narration and not from any previous knowledge about the great man other than several articles in newspapers I really think he is a grand patriot and a great Cuban leaderIf Ojito purpose in writing her memoir is to demonize Castro she had failed miserably Let face it the guy is so down to earth from her bookhe was so tolerant even with people who had plotted to overthrow him by armed forces one example was Bernado Benes to whom he agreed to meet to discuss the release of political prisoners resulting in over 5000 of them some had participated in the Bay of Pigs fiasco released and permitted to go to the US He is leading such an austere life style the carpet at his palace were worn thinly he wore a rumpled military jacket amassed no millions dollarsown no villa We can find this last virtue found in Castro in some of great men in history Ho chi Minh and Gandhi for exampleThe other amazing thing about Ojito is self grandiosity In he memoir she has reported an incidence where as a reporter for a major US newspapershe had an interview with Fidel She reported holding this great man LIMP hand and feel victoriously facing her former adversary in an eual my wordnot Ojito duel also my wordnot her Eual my foot Victory my foot Limp you say LIMP eh Miss did you know that that limp hand has directed by the greatest mind the most courageous heart belong to one of the most patriotic men in Cuban historyIt has held machine guns together with comradesagainst big oddsoverthrew the very corrupted Batista to whom you your father and mother love and wishfully hoped he was still in power because you would have had a chance to climb an greased poll to get gifts in its topI am telling you she has no shame The following is a review I wrote for a book written by Micheal Moore entitled DOWNSIZE THIS I am including this review here because it is closely related to my review for FINDING MANANA by Mirta Ojito While I agree with most of his main points being a Viet namese Hey the world this is the correct form not Vietnamese Why we gave the American a superior power to do everything for us including Americanize our country name and hence our people name for the life of me I do not understand I am most interested in Chapter 23 THOSE KEYSTONE CUBANSI am even so enthralled after I had severely criticized Mirta Ojito s memoir FINDING MANANA to know that I was right all along According to Micheal Moore those Miami Cubans were exactly what Moore had reported in his book Wimps half ass liberators with many hare brain schemes all ended with disastrous results most notably THE BAY OF PIGS fiasco thugs who ran narcotic rings criminals who participated in the infamous break in that brought down Nixon murderers responsible for bombings in Miami of all places hired guns willing to commit any crime for money Iran Contra and even people with some involvement with the Kennedy assassination Moore strongest opinion about the Miami Cubans being WIMPS is most interesting I can not do justice to you readers unless I uote the following passage found in page 179For starterswhen you don t like the oppressors in your country YOU STAY THERE AND TRY TO OVERTHROW HIM This can be done by force American RevolutionFrench Revolution or through peaceful mean Gandhi in India or Mandela in South Africa BUT YOU DON T JUST TURN TAILS AND RUN LIKE THESE CUBANS Imagine if the American colonists had all run to Canada and then insisted the Canadian had a RESPONSIBILITY to overthrow the British down in the StatesMandela went to prisonnot to Libya or London all capital letters are mineexcept RESPONSIBILITY These were exactly the people Mirta Ojito kept crowing about in her memoirIt is easy to understand she and her family were and is a part of this despicable crowd In my review of Ojito book I have only briefly mentioned that she was lying in almost every pagesReading this chapter readers can see how a liar she wasWell she was not exactly lying she has just conveniently NOT MENTIONED how bad were those Miami Cubans mentioned above including the notorious Cuban dictator much corrupted Batista 1 to whom she had highly praised and liked Another big lie from Ojito memoir is she has deviously ignored the well known fact about the shameful numerous and extreme dirty plots to assassinate Castro Planed and executed by you have guest it correctly various evil US administrations I don t know if I need to use the word evil preceding U S administrationsEven without this adjective people in the whole world knew from their observation that all of them the right hand of the elusive and secretive MAFIA BOSSES are evilAmazingly Castro survived all these attempts on his life Actually it was not amazing at all because Castro knew too well his fate once he submitted his country sovereignty to the U S his life will be cut short if he did not like what they do to his country and his people like the fate of the Diem brothers of South Viet nam Castro has chosen to stand tall and survived Well Ojito has chosen to be spineless and surviving too right Actually she is not just surviving perhaps she is very prosperous Sure but giving all the knowledge cited above do you really want to follow Ojito steps if you know the different between being respected and despised by your fellow countrymen and countrywomen For details on the dirty plots on Castro life please read the above mentioned chapter of DOWNSIZE THIS Ojito freedom seeker successful journalist political exile college professor and a BIG LIAR hiding a huge mountain in broad daylight and almost successful until Micheal Moore For those who do not know about the Viet Nam war and its aftermath let me tell you I can see exactly myself in those despicable Miami s CubansYep I was the collaborator or at leastone of millions of apathetic otherwise happy slaves of the American masters who invaded my beloved motherland under the phony purpose of fighting communism and after all the Viet namese lap dogs TONG TONG were murdered the Diem brothers fired went into exile by the order of their mastersor ran with tails between their legsThieu Ky together with their American masters who did likewise like a moron I ran with them to the US Luckily I recognized it now a little too late thought the crime I had committed against my motherland not unlike the Miami s CubansReading the above mentioned chapter have put salt into my newly opened old woundHowever I am happy because the pain and sorrow for my past actions and non actions is the first step toward healing recovering and changing my life direction toward the right path the path that my ancestors who were much admiredmuch heroic much resilient never kow tow to foreign barbarians had lived and fought I strongly recommend this book to anyone but specially to many third world country people who were or are the victims of colonialism Viet namese includedFOOTNOTE 1 Fulgencio Batista ran the country ruthlessly in the process accumulating a personal fortune of three hundred million dollars THE NIGHT WATCH by David Atlee PhillipsAtheneum Publisher NY condensed by READER DIGEST page 51less
