I’m so glad he didn’t just take it and let it ride…the stupidity from the United States towards the people of Cuba has gone on long enough. Where you aware that in order to get a visa to visit Cuba that you have to get that issued from the Treasury Department? Yup, that is the organization that can freeze your money and also is home to the FBI and a host of other alphabet boyz…this is some insanity on a whole new level.

Southern Smoke legend DJ Smallz says, “I like D’NME’s fast rapping…It was clear and concise which is good…”
In the summer of 2011, D’NME gained exposure with features on globally renowned mixtapes by DJ Smallz, DJ Green Lantern and being featured alongside Hip Hop standouts like Lil’ Wayne, Lloyd Banks and Jadakiss. He also released his first mixtape entitled “Guns & Roses.” “Guns & Roses was featured on the top 8 “Most Downloaded” section on Datpiff.com during the month of July.
D’NME has gained major industry attention with features pieces on MTV.com, Hip Hop Vibe, HipHopissip.com which has help increase the visibility of his independent record label 9th Law Entertainment, established in 2010.

CINCINNATI, Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – In a sign of the times, Andrew Murray Howe V’s The Politician’s Essential EXCUSE BOOK, reached #1 on the Amazon List of Hot New Releases in Entertainment within a week of being published, briefly passing Tina Fey‘s Bossypants. The first in hisEssential EXCUSE BOOK series, Howe takes a timeless swipe at the (unintentionally) funny things uttered by candidates, supporters and pundits during the life and after-life of a political campaign.
“A compendium of sure-fire excuses for any candidate who is down in the polls, makes that unfortunate gaffe, needs to energize a lagging campaign or has the temerity to actually lose an election. A must-have for politicians, pundits, campaign staffers, volunteers, and voters of every party.”
The pocket sized book takes jabs at candidates, parties and positions of all flavors. According to editorJoe Keefe, what he finds striking about the book is that it contains “funny bits of almost-too-real stuff: remedies for when what they meant to say is what they actually said”. Howe mixes truth with humor and satire to arrive at the 78 numbered excuses. Examples:
Opponent is pandering to the right
Use when your candidate’s opponent ends a speech with “God Bless America“
Opponent is pandering to the left
Use when your candidate’s opponent starts a speech with “My Fellow Americans“
The better candidate won.
[Only if we won. If not, screw them]
The absolute worst excuse ever. Although it is rumored to have been around since the early days of political races in Athens, I cannot find an example of it actually having been used. Don’t even think about using it until your candidate loses seven straight races to the same opponent.
Howe’s Essential EXCUSE BOOK series is based on his Hall of Fame great-grandfather’s 1904 book of horse racing excuses: The Trottin Hoss Excuse Book, which remains a classic in racing circles to this day. The next book in the series will be The Physician’s Essential EXCUSE BOOK, with more to follow. The books will be available as paperback or eBooks on Amazon.com and the author’s website, ExcuseBooks.com.
