    It's not just Cuba. Most of the caribbean islands count on the strength of the dollar for it's own currency also even a small drop in tourism or export prices is a huge hit. All of the islands import most of their food and essentials, when the dollar fell so did their buying power.

    The entire region is suffering in this recession.

    We'll send them our old Sears catalogs.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I don't, but it sounds like Raul does:

    Raul Castro, who replaced his ailing older brother Fidel Castro as president last year, also has complained that Cuba's productivity is too low.

    He has taken various steps to boost output, including putting more state-owned land in private hands and pushing for salaries to be based on productivity.


    Another victory for communism.

    They could use copies of CASTRO'S speeches, das Kapital, and the pages of Communist failures in Cuba.

    Or poison ivy leafs would be nice. Shiney side up!!!
