    Do you really believe Cuba isn't corrupt now???
    The difference between a mild fascist oligarchy ruled by a dictator and a socialist country ruled by a dictator. The only difference is who benefits, private owners or people on the street? Compare healthcare under each model to see who benefits most.

    okay... I JUST SAID I'M NOT A CASTRO FAN. Why do you skim posts and then act like your replying to it all? You are so bad about that. And as far as people being allowed to come and go... what the hell do you think normalizing relations with Cuba will do?

    You guys are so bent on hating everything Obama does that your are punching your own selves in the face.

    Note how that's reality and has nothing to do with any day dreaming.

    Check out the Cuban Demos in the House and the Demo Senator Robert Menendez, then get back to me. When you want to learn about some more true stuff over Cuba.
    You are pissed because you aren't getting your way. And your Obama derangement syndrome is just hackishly funny. Keep going. Relations with Cuba are normalizing and the old farts of yesteryear will complain. I don't give a rats ass. At least now Cuba won't be tempted to put nukes 90 miles off our shore... but why give a damn about that when it gets in the way of bitching about Obama huh?

    SayWhat? I suggest you take a look at what Rubio said about BO peep getting a Ambassador nominated. Do you think that messes with BO's EO.

    Do you know who is in control of the funds? That would be Lindsey Graham. Now note what he said he will do to make sure that BO does not get that funding. Does that mess with BO's EO?

    So much for that so called analysis on bitching about BO peep. Oh and don't worry.....there is still 2 more years of BO screw ups to come.

    MOAR ODS. Lindsey has it too and would deny funding for an EO if Obama made one for curing cancer. Obvious hacks are obvious hacks. And Lindsey is an obvious hack making an oh so predictable move as promised six years ago when they decided to block any and everything Obama did before he even took office. That basically just trashes any stance republicans take as being from a position of integrity.

    That's to match the Bi-polar and Sybil like personalities streaming out of left field. So let me guess Rubio is a hack to Right? What about the Demo Menendez who is doing some of his own smack talking about this issue. While admitting BO doesn't know what he is doing?

    Rubio is a hack going for the ever dwindling Dade County anti-Castro vote. Mendendez is an old guy clinging to old ways. I don't doubt he means what he's saying but his views are dying off and he's just whining now. It's going to change as it should. Cold war is over.

    The United States on Wednesday condemned what it called Cuba's practice of repression following the detention of several activists, in the first major test of President Barack Obama's policy shift toward normalizing relations with the communist-ruled island. The arrests marked the most significant crackdown on the opposition since Cuba and the United States agreed on Dec. 17 to restore diplomatic ties and put behind them more than five decades of hostility.

    The State Department said it was deeply concerned by the detention on Tuesday of several "peaceful civil society members and activists" by the Cuban authorities."We strongly condemn the Cuban government's continued harassment and repeated use of arbitrary detention, at times with violence, to silence critics, disrupt peaceful assembly and freedom expression, and intimidate citizens," the State Department said in a statement. "We urge the government of Cuba to end its practice of repressing these and other internationally protected freedoms and to respect the universal human rights of Cuban citizens," it added.....snip~

    And? Get back to me when you give a **** about Saudi Arabia and China's repressive regimes. When I see you parading around talking about ending normalized relations with them then you might take on a slight notion of credibility in your posts.

    What????? Go look around in the ME and see what I have had to say about the Saud, and the Sunni.

    I'm one who says don't share any of our tech with them. Nor even let them buy it! Of course they are not the only ones I have said such about.

    Oh and.....kind of hard to normalize relations when the other side is still going to commit human rights abuses. Plus says nothing else has changed.

    Its simple....they need money. So guess who they thought they could sucker. Yep.....BO and his Team!
