    Yes, I do and thank you for that.

    Watching all you righties line up to throw your disdain towards Raul simply because he holds the same last name when we all know you don't know a damn thing about him... THAT's funny. Now google him up and pretend like you always knew everything about him in your next post.
    Perhaps you can point to the kinder, gentler side of Raul Castro and how he rebelled against his brothers tyranny over the decades, refusing all the splendor Fidel enjoyed. That should be on google as well.

    Are there any hard core leftists do you admire?

    I've talked to cigar aficionados and they say that because of over production the land in Cuba has been 'leached' because of overproduction with the best tobacco is from Nicaragua. There is also a lot of counterfeit Cuban cigars which are just terrible, but the boxes look quite authentic.

    Right wing partisans don't care what Bush did because of the R behind his name. When a president does the same thing with a D behind his name, they suddenly care very much. And the reverse is true of course as well. Which is what frustrates progress in America. But rah rah your team Mason.

    The conviction of Bradley Manning under the 1917 Espionage Act, and the US Justice Department's decision to file espionage charges against NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden under the same act, are yet further examples of the Obama administration's policy of using an iron fist against human rights and civil liberties activists.

    Yes a lot of the dangers are coming from within, and not a great many people realize it. Armed EPA raid in Alaska sheds light on 70 fed agencies with armed divisions | Fox News

    Like many I was at first against Snowden but am now realizing he may have made a major contribution to the continuation and maintenance of US rights and freedoms.

    Thanks for not answering the question. I don't have a team.

    I indulged in a cuban cigar the last time I was in the Caribbean. It wasn't everything I was hoping it would be, but I think they could come back around if we removed the embargo.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I'm mentioning Bush's actions, because implicit in the OP was that Obama was somehow kowtowing to an untrustworthy foreign leader, probably because he's an evil socialist who hates America. I'm just pointing out that Bush did the same, as did Clinton before him, and Bush Sr before him, all the way back to, you know, George Washington, because that's what leaders DO.

    I do have an opinion of what Obama did: Good on him, he didn't act like an international level dickbag, and he's working to mend a broken relationship from an era two decades past.

    Actually no, he didn't. Sorry to break it to you after you went to all that trouble to drink all that koolaid, but the image floating around the moron leftist sites was faked.
