Emiliano Antunez, Lives in South Florida  and never ceases to be amazed by the arrogance, stupidity and malevolence of the great majority of our "elected  representatives".  The voters are revolting.

Milking Cubans

Column by Emiliano Antunez. Exclusive to STR A former resident of Hialeah, Florida today finds himself in the less hospitable surroundings of a Cuban prison for the unspeakable crime of running a successful farm on the island gulag. Among other things, Juan Carlos Rodriguez allegedly produced too much milk and overpaid his employees, because apparently the last thing a workers' paradise needs is...
TSA Should Offer Travelers Search Options

Column by Emiliano Antunez.  Exclusive to STR If you boarded a plane over the holiday weekend, I am sure you weren’t very comfortable exposing your “privates” on a screen or having a “highly trained” TSA employee feel your “junk.” The TSA should explore giving flyers options in order to make these invasive procedures more bearable or constructive....

Column by Emiliano Antunez.   Exclusive to STR   Don’t you just love three dollar a gallon gas and spending almost $250 a week on groceries that used to cost you just $200 only two or three years ago? Whoever coined the statement “money is no object” was either Chairman of the Federal Reserve or a high-ranking economist of the Weimar Republic.   Last week in a...

Exclusive to STR On Wednesday, January 27th, the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, delivered his first State of the Union message to its citizens (and “illegal” aliens), all three hundred million plus of us. Besides all the usual empty rhetoric, platitudes and clichés, there was a sentence in Mr. Obama’s speech that was very telling of his audacity and...
Who Needs Healthcare When You Can Have a Cheeseburger in Paradise

Exclusive to STR   With all the cantankerous arguments filled with minutiae permeating the halls of Congress and the TV and radio talk shows, it’s hard to remember what the core issue of the healthcare debate is: Is there a natural right to healthcare?     Many of the arguments in favor and even against President Barack Obama’s healthcare plans do not challenge or...

Exclusive to STR February 25, 2009 Well it's official: President Barack H. Obama, with a stroke of his magisterial pen, has made the $787 billion stimulus package the law of the land. Americans can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their current state of high financial anxiety will be shared by generations to come.

Atlas Didn't Shrug, He Bailed

Exclusive to STR November 25, 2008 Watching the CEOs of the 'Big Three' sitting before a congressional committee groveling for a piece of the bailout pie brought Ayn Rand's prophetic (and historic) novel Atlas Shrugged to mind. The scene in Washington D.C. was the equivalent of turning on the National Geographic Channel and watching a 400 pound lion beg a 90 pound zebra calf for its life.

Exclusive to STR June 6, 2007 Unlike the long anticipated sequel to Waterworld , there is going to be a 'special session' of the Florida legislature this month, where the upstanding senators and representatives of the great state of Florida promise that they are going to 'solve' the current property tax crisis.

Exclusive to STR   He may very well be the most dangerous man in America (except maybe John Mark Carr). Lou Dobbs is a well groomed, impeccably coifed, clean shaven fellow who wears dark business suits and snazzy ties with matching cufflinks. He is everyone's image of a businessman or capitalist, but in reality he is everything but. Recently Mr. Dobbs has authored a book War on The Middle...

Exclusive to STR We are all aware of the way our federal and state governments blow our tax dollars on $800 hammers and congressional perks and pay raises, but few of us rarely pay close attention to our county and municipal government budgets. Local governments armed with taxing authority of their own are just as inept and corrupt as their larger federal and state counterparts. County and...

Exclusive to STR September 8, 2006 It's 6 a.m. and my alarm clock begins to buzz. Today, I have made a decision to immerse myself in the electoral experience so as to take a closer look at how and why the other half votes. I jump out of the shower, pop the blue pill (not 'that' blue pill since I like most folks will be the one getting screwed today) along with a heavy dose of caffeine, and head...

Exclusive to STR As I open the door to my house, I can feel the sweat on the palms of my hands abandoning me in favor of the doorknob. I look nervously out the door and scan the street in all directions. I look straight ahead at what holds the cause of all my recent anguish: a small, cylindrical metal object that sits on a pole in my front yard.

Exclusive to STR Out of the pens (or keyboards) of movie critics sometimes come the most convoluted and distorted thoughts known to man. The recently released movie The Lost City (directed by and starring Andy Garcia), a tale of the heady days in Havana circa 1959, has been met by many critics with disdain and scorn.

Are Immigrants the Problem?

Emiliano Antunez 2006-04-04 16:00
Exclusive to STR Our politicians are at it again, trying to get electoral mileage from 'illegal' Immigrants. Depending on the demographics in your district, your Congressman is either howling about porous borders or harping on amnesty. From the rhetoric coming from both sides in our government, one thing is for sure: This issue will be exploited for years to come. One question looms large over...

Exclusive to STR Alphonse Capone purchased a winter home in Miami Beach in the late 1920s. Though not much of his criminal activity was tied to South Florida , it is believed that Mr. Capone ordered the bloody Saint Valentine's Day Massacre from amongst the palm trees on his sun-drenched estate.

Exclusive to STR Pamela Anderson is best known for her (surgically enhanced) well endowed bust and her raunchy videos that leave little to the imagination. Lately Ms. Anderson has attempted to destroy someone else's bust. She has asked Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher to remove the bust of Harland Sanders (AKA Colonel Sanders) founder of the Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) restaurant chain from the...

Exclusive to STR The popular 1980s TV show Miami Vice featured Miami-Dade narcotics detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs clad in various pastel outfits and chasing after the 'bad guys' in Ferraris and speed boats. More than 20 years later the more identifiable vices are alive and well in Miami , but there also exist more insidious incarnations of vice around city and county halls these...

Exclusive to STR 'Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and you never know what you will find' were the words of former President Bill Clinton's advisor James (Ragin' Cajun) Carville, while defending his boss against accusations made by Paula Jones. Apparently Florida state Senator Mike Bennett wants to find out. The Senator recently filed a bill he claims will protect these bastions of...
