In every Latino home, you will find  the closet. Inside is all the junk your parents just can’t say goodbye to, even though no one has used them for years. And while some items have real sentimental value, others make you scratch your head, wondering, “why the hell are they saving that?” Like this…

Let’s open the door and see what you’ll probably find in your parent’s hoarding closet.

There’s that communion dress you wore once, several decades ago.


Why mom keeps it, no one knows. Anytime you have visita, you can bet your mother will put this dress on display and talk about how cute you were. Keep kleenex on hand, cause momma always has a meldown talkinga about this stuff.

That toilet paper cover your abuela gave the family as a gift.


Your parents can’t throw this creepy thing away because it was a gift from abuela. Most of the year, they keep it locked away in the hoarder closet… Until abuela asks about it.

Speaking of dolls, there’s always a few of these hidden in the hoarding closet.


No one knows who they belong to or how they got there. They’re just there. And every time you look for something in that closet, you’re certain there are more than there were last time.

There’s that long forgotten hidden present.

Sometimes parents get so good at hiding presents they forget where they hid a gift in first place. Then one day, you’re digging around for abuela’s toilet paper cover and you find that long lost gift.

Of course, the long forgotten present was that Furby you wanted back in 1998.

What were you thinking?

Then there are those board games on the top shelf that no one can play because of missing pieces.

What’s the point in keeping them?!!

Those “fashionable” clothes your parents can’t get rid of.


Fashion trends come and go, and the hoarder closet is proof. Inside, you’ll find anything from bootcut jeans, peasant shirts, fanny packs, mini skirts, blazers with shoulder pads, velour track suits, and leather jackets with tassels. Basically, anything your parents believe might come back into fashion hangs out here waiting for a second chance… with a few holes.

Check the pockets of those clothes and you’ll find extinct candy.

The pockets of clothes in the hoarder closet are like mini-museums. You’ll find old lottery tickets, discontinued candy, pesos, old tissue, out of style glasses, pogs, old watches, acrylic nails, and lint. It’s really a trip down memory lane.

Keep an eye out for failed workout equipment.


Once upon a time, your dad saw a commercial for workout gear that would change his life. Flash forward to today, and papa is yelling at the football game from his La-Z-Boy, and those life changing items are tucked away deep inside the hoarder closet.

That old family computer your dad refuses to throw out is in there too.

Because in the 90s it was considered a huge investment. The second reason your dad refuses to throw it out is because he’s worried hackers will steal his identity.

Art your mom never let your dad hang on the wall.


Your dad thinks it’s art. Your mom thinks it’s trash. So now his art lives on in the hoarder closet, waiting for a garage sale.

Shoeboxes… Full of important family documents.

Again because your dad thinks his identity will be stolen if he inputs his information in any computer, you’ll find boxes of old family tax records. In another, your dad’s soccer uniform from 1994. Then there’s the box full of old love letters your mom refuses to throw away, even though they’re not from your father. The only thing you won’t find in these shoe boxes are actual shoes. Go figure.

And the most important part of a hoarder closet, the closet organizer.


Sadly, the closet organizer lasted only a few days before it collapsed and disappeared forever into the depths of all the junk your parents stored in there. Everyone knows it’s still in there, but no one wants to dig it out. Who knows what other horrible, forgotten items are waiting in there.


Of course, this is only what you’ll find in the hoarder closet. Don’t get us started on the attic…

People – Including Politicians – Are Embarrassed By Obama's Castro Statement

People – Including Politicians – Are Embarrassed By Obama’s Castro Statement

ABC / Gonzalo Rios / YouTube / @ttmt285 / Twenty20

President Barack Obama’s statement about the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has enraged so many people. What might sound like a neutral and on-the-fence comment on Castro’s death has sparked anger among Americans thinking he is being too kind to Castro’s true legacy.

This was President Obama’s statement about the death of Fidel Castro.


“At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people,” Obama’s statement reads. “We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”

People are not amused or proud of the tone President Obama struck with his statement.


“It began with mass summary executions of Batista officials and soon progressed to internment of thousands of gay men and lesbians; systematic, block-by-block surveillance of the entire citizenry; repeated purges, complete with show trials and executions, of the ruling party; and punishment for dissident artists, writers and journalists,” The Washington Post’s Editorial Board wrote about Castro’s legacy.

Especially when compared to President-elect Donald Trump’s statement.


“Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades,” Trump’s statement reads. “Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”

Some people are calling the Obama administration out on being tougher on the critics of his statement than the legacy of a dictator.


“As other countries in the region turned away from authoritarian rule, only Fidel Castro’s Cuba continued to repress virtually all civil and political rights,” José Miguel Vivanco, the Human Rights Watch’s Americas director, told The Guardian. “Castro’s draconian rule and the harsh punishments he meted out to dissidents kept his repressive system rooted firmly in place for decades.”

Cuban-American politicians have joined others in condemning President Obama over his remarks.


“Cuba’s pre-Castro economy was overly reliant on sugar exports and left many in poverty, and the post-1961 U.S. trade embargo did not help the revolution prosper,” The Washington Post’s Editorial Board wrote. “But Mr. Castro himself did by far the lion’s share of damage, impoverishing the island through a program of total state control, occasionally punctuated by his own grandiose schemes — from the ill-fated 10 million-ton sugar harvest in the 1960s to the brutally austere “Special Period” after Soviet subsidies ended in the 1990s.”

Rep. Carlos Curbelo is a Florida state representative for the 26th district which includes parts of Miami-Dade County.


“I think President Obama owes an apology to the American people,” Curbelo said on CNN. “Not just to Cuban-Americans, who have felt so much of this pain, but I remind people [that] Fidel Castro is the man who had nuclear missiles installed in Cuba and pointed to the United States. He brought the world to the brink of a nuclear war and for the president to say [that] History will judge Fidel Castro, we don’t have to wait. We know that this man was a tyrant, he was a murderer, he worked against the United States every single day of his life when he was in power.”

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida echoed much of what Curbelo has said about Fidel Castro.


“Fidel Castro seized power promising to being freedom and prosperity to Cuba, but his communist regime turned it into an impoverished island prison,” Rubio said. “Over six decades, millions of Cubans were forced to flee their own country, and those accused of opposing the regime were routinely jailed and even killed.”

And Rubio did not hold back on President Obama calling his statement “pathetic.”


Some people wants those who are angry by Obama’s remarks to reevaluate their stance on a Trump/Putin alliance.


If you can be mad at Castro being “praised” by President Obama, then you can be upset for Putin being praised by Trump. Putin was a major supporter of Castro’s regime and worked closely with the dictator.

Even people who admire President Obama are disheartened by his statement.


And this person is comparing Obama’s response to that of Cher’s.
