    Fantastic, now we can poison them with Mcdonald's, High Fructose corn syrup, Professional wrestling and Monster truck pulls.

    How do you think they'll react to it? That's a big discussion going on now. I'm curious myself. Some people say they won't react well. Others say they will. I heard Bret Baier say it's like 1950 in Cuba.

    Castro...hmmmm....that should be interesting.

    My husband and I go to Jamaica every few years with friends, and when we fly over Cuba I love to look down on it. It looks like an amazingly beautiful country.

    But you're wrong, the people of Cuba will likely benefit a lot from the new changes. For one thing, Cubans will have more access to the internet and maybe even start doing more trade with the US. Their relatives in the US will also be able to send them more money. The US will also be opening a new embassy in Havana which will help normalize diplomatic relations and bring about mutual cooperation in many areas such as healthcare, immigration and fighting ebola. What isn't changing, at least not right away is the restrictions on US tourism. Only congress can change that. Which begs the question, why are US citizens less free to travel?


    Heya Moot. Yeah he promised change......and this may turn out to be a good thing. As the rest of his Foreign Policy is a considered to be a failure. But opening up relations doesn't mean Cuba is going to open up their Internet at this time.

    Also, why would Rubio agree it will lift them economically but then say it will do nothing for human rights and Democracy in Cuba?

    Amazing. I had exactly the same thought when I read your original reply to me, so I unhooked my brain to reply in order to achieve the same level of accomplishment. It seems it worked!!

    I have a buddy with a dive shop in Dominican Republic.. I really need to get there. I can already go to Cuba with my other passport, and I can fly to Cancun for free, then hop a short flight over....so many other places I want to see first, I finally have some good vacation time built up, need to plan a big trip soon.
