All those comments blaming the U.S. embargo for the poverty and backwardness of Cuba seem to miss the point that the island has been able to trade and interact with almost all of the rest of the world, Europe and Canada included. So why hasn't this cooperation been more beneficial for Cubans? Could it be because Cuba is a prison state?
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Why anyone would think that is a good thing is beyond me. Why would anyone hate the Cuban people? Isn't it bad enough for them to be stuck with a failed socialistic regime?
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Charles Manson has deserved to die for decades now. Say he was killed and I applauded that it finally happened, as in the case with Cuba. I later find out that he was tortured for a year by lighting parts of him sporadically on fire from time to time until they eventually covered him with sweets and let fire ants bite him to death in agonizing pain. THAT would suck, just like the E.O. sucks. That has NOTHING to do with being glad that Cuban sanctions are over OR that Charley Manson is dead.
Are you able... just a little teeny bit, to see how that is logical and makes sense or is your hatred so blinding that you can't see that you are ****ing wrong?
EDIT: I just noticed that you completely ignored this post. I assume it is because the other tangent that was brought up was easier since it requires no accountability and my Manson analogy completely shoots down your uneducated and ignorant assumption.
