    In a deal that was coordinated with the help of the Cuban Catholic Church and Spain, he released all of the political prisoners in Cuba. He also is taking a number of steps that imply a major rewriting of the social contract in Cuba to shrink the size of the state and give Cuban individuals more freedom--economically, especially, but also in terms of speech--than we've seen in the last fifty years. He has privatized the residential real estate and car market[s], expanded much-needed agrarian reform, lifted caps on salaries, and greatly expanded space for small businesses. He also is moving to deal with corruption and to prepare the groundwork for a great deal more foreign investment. He's moving in the direction of the kind of reforms that every administration over the last fifty years has called upon Cuba to make, albeit under the rubric of a one-party system. There's a broad range of cooperation--neighborhood security in the Gulf of Mexico, as Cuba has just started drilling for oil, counternarcotics, and natural disasters.

    Yes, I hate this president. Or at least his ideas and direction he has set for us.

    Some response to a post full of Cuban progress. Why'd you even quote it.

    You dont have facts, and I dont feel like smelling your opinion. Shoo.

    Still waiting for any evidence you actually know more history than the rest of us....
    As for me, I lived in Cuba for 3 years in the early 70's, and my daughter was born there.

    I can think of probably 20 off the top of my head, just in my lifetime, that have been more brutal.

    Why does that matter? Is Cuba going to invade us soon?

    I can think of one that was probably worse a few hundred miles further. Haiti.
