    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Again, there is absolutely no good reason to change what has been the status quo.

    Nope, although I do recall the last time an olive branch was provided to the Cuban regime by Clinton it wound up with a Brother's to the Rescue plane shot down. They tend to like the US being an antagonist to them. I agree something different could be tried, but that regime is as corrupt as pretty much every other socialist/communist government in the Caribbean and South America is. And it has a tourism industry where money only really benefits the government.

    Has any benefit to the USA or anyone else but the Cuban government and possibly Cubans even been suggested by Obama? No, just another of his guilt tripping apologizing for the existence of the United States to the rest of the world - and punishing Americans for it.

Check out some of the threads with our main leftists characters here. Quite a different tune then.....huh?
    If Castro called himself a Fascist rather than a Communist the Leftists would be all over this guy like a cheap brown sweater. But because he is a Communist dictator the Left, including Obama of course, gives him a pass.

    Jon Gruber was too kind to these feeble minded idiots.

Now that is some funny ****. Did you forget the Castros have been into mass extermination and have been doing it longer than both Assad and Gadhafi. Was there some reason you forgot to add that in when doing all that Naught and Naught you are into.

    Do you have some validation of these Mass extermination campaigns they were running. Where is this Proof. Oh and again how was Gadhafi destabilizing a whole region? Same with Assad.....since they were the stability until some Rebel/Terrorists came along in both cases.

    Do you know anything about Foreign affairs.....or do you just try and make **** up on the fly-by?

    And who is influencing America now more than these people? Yet Leftists will complain about Fox News as they watch their country go down the tubes. It's amazing to watch!

    Do Cuban planes have a right to enter US airspace without permission?
