    Uh huh...and the US has a presence in Cuba. So your headline "Defying US"...LOL.


    BTW--Europe and Canada have been trading with Cuba all along. I'm not sure what the point of your story actually is.

    Enjoy the rest of your life.

    Sounds like a good idea to me, do not expect the US to be far behind.. there is a lot of waterfront to develop, casino's to be built, chains to be put up.. ka ching, ka ching...

    It will be good for the working class in Cuba..

    Which is a very good reason for the embargo to continue, as far as I can see. Except that I'd love to visit there--it's nice that it's not Trump South.

    Wes, which way are the people going? Are they risking life and limb to get to Cuba or to to the United States? Take away the border controls and do you see droves of people fleeing to Mexico or to the United States? It seems to me Wes that your never ending anti-America posts just aren't reaching the people. Either that or maybe this isn't such a bad place after all. You still make me sick though. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just being honest. You offend me and I'm sure many others with your portrayal of service men, police and whoever else you can trash every day. Maybe you can explain.

    I'm not sure what the EU sanctions against Cuba were specifically, but I do have a few friends from Italy who went to Cuba on holiday many years ago and loved it. And of course, you an buy Cuban cohibas from any decent tabcoonist in Italy though they're still pricey. IOW, EU's trade/travel sactions were not nearly as restrictive as the US'.

    Why do you say this?? Don't you think that the US corporations would love to develop this into a tourist destination??

    Do you have some kind of problem reading the words I type?

    Yes, I think US corporations would love to turn Cuba into Miami Beach South.

    That's the point of my saying it's a good reason for the US to continue the embargo, as it would be a shame to spoil Cuba.

    Wes...wes...LOL. Maybe I wasn't clear enough.

    Canada and Europe have already been trading with Cuba as it is. This article you posted isn't anything new, really. There's no reason for the Cuban people to be living as they are--there's tourism from Canada and Europe, don't forget as well. The only reason for the Cuban's standard of living is The Castro Boys.

    And if you look around at all the other islands out there, and what they've become--is it that wrong to hope Cuba can stay more the way it is?

    I mean--of course I'd like to see the individual Cubans get a higher standard of living. I'd like to see everyone prosper and be happy. But selfishly, I'd like to see Cuba remain more or less unspoiled--because we know US developers can't leave anything alone and can't do anything simply, have you been to Vegas lately?

    BTW--where were you the last time we had this discussion and Patters agreed with me? Why didn't you jump in and attack him?

    ;)

    It's okay though, little buddy. I still luv ya...:rocker:

    PS: I never said they "deserve" the embargo. I continue to believe it's one of the stupidest things the US government has ever done...and that's saying something, given the long asss list of stupid stuff the US government has done.

    Far left wing socialist progressive liberals don't like Cuba they DISLIKE America that is what makes it appear that they Like Cuba.

    Liberals are such PHONYS, they whine and blubber if a Cop is caught slapping some scumbags face, they constantly whail their slobbering bullsh!t about the Constitution, their freedom of speech sh!t is
    "liberal crap" today they are making plans to try again to censor and even ban "talk radio"
    (they can't compete, nobody listens to them) they can't compete with people like Limbaugh so they want him silenced, (hows that for freedom).

    The far Left Wing Liberals are the SAVIORS of a Kinder And More Gentle World, Justice, Love And Equality For All, Human Rights, Stop Police Brutality, Save The Homeless, Free Speech, Free Love, "We Are The Truth And The Way"

    These people rose to their feet and gave a standing ovation to that dirty little mother f-cking greasy smelly Muslim Creep, The President Of Iran who in this day and age still stones people to death, tortures, beheads and murders human beings, the Left Wing Liberal Americans are so proud of being defenders of "human rights" the little Iranian Creep treats women worse than the Kennedy's and Bill Clinton does, Iran treats their donkeys better than they do their women, The American Liberals Gave Iran A Standing Ovation

    Two More Of The American Far Left Wing Liberals Hero's "Castro/Chavez" they are great examples of Freedom and Human Rights-----:singing:

    What happened to the old time Democrat, how did the MTV Crowd gain control of the Party that was for God Country And The Working People.

    Why are the "New Democrats" trying to destroy our culture--:confused:

    You ducked the question. People risk life and limb to come here Wes. Not sure of the stats but it's got to be a stagering difference on those wanting to come vs leave. Brazil must be great. Why do you want to stay here, BTW?
