    Am i correct in this assessment?


    Did the US try to invade Cuba? Is the US harboring a man funded by the CIA who blew up a cuban airlane full of citizens?
    Did Cuba try to set up NUCLEAR MISSILES? Did Cuba assissinate JFK?

    Ask yourself "Why was Cruz there in the 1st place?"...he's not a world leader nor did he know Mandela personally...this was a publicity stunt - nothing more and nothing less.

    I'm already sick of hearing about this man in the news and it's not even an election year!!!!!!

    Everybody and their mother has one, '57s too.

    I don't think any of the Cuban cars are restorable. They have been modified just to keep them running for the past 50 years.You can find shells of just about any car in the US if you just look. It is also cheaper that transporting them across the water.

    What do you think the salty air has done to those '50s cars?
    I concur.

    Not long ago I was watching a Huell Howser special on his visit to Cuba and those old American cars from the 50's have been rebuilt with Russian parts along with duct tape and bailing wire. The only thing original on them is the chassie and body.

    Those friends that I know who did travel to Cuba back during the 1990's did say many of those old cars were still refurbishable. Probably not today. But they still probably are good for parts.

    I have a friend who is an Aussie who smuggles Corvettes into Australia. It's just too expensive with the Australian import tariffs to legally import a corvette into Austrailia.

    A Cuban-American walking out on a Castro speech. No kidding.

    This is so not an issue. Cuban-Americans despise that name. Walk into Miami and shout "Viva Castro!" and see if you don't get your ass shot.

    I want to see if Maxine Waters would sit there and listen to a Klansman making a speech.

    I think Ted Cruz needs to take a little history before making an idiotic gesture/statement. I dont think he remembers how Mandela and Castro are allies... [/FONT][/COLOR]
    If I was a Cuban American I probably would walk out too. I don't blame him one bit. I don't see a big whoppie do about the president shaking hands with Castro and I do not see it as a big whoppie do about Cruz walking out. I think those who try to turn either one or both into big things really need to get a life. I can understand the reasons for and why each would do wha they did. Neither is a problem to me.,
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This is one more example of you being far too reasonable and playing to both sides..
    Careful, there is a downstairs and you're not immune..
    I noticed you've been visiting down there, but be sure not to speak of specifics up here--you know, the Vegas rule..

    Actually, I think most people are wondering why we sent a "Congressional Delegation" in the first place. They don't represent America on the world stage.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    To me what each did was common sense. But I am not a diehard left or right, but there are issues I believe in and issues I don't. As to threads which is basement and which is upstairs, I just pick topics I think interest me and where they are is irrelevant. I hadn't noticed I was in the basement until I start to give a like and the like button ain't there.

    Perhaps I should start to pay more attention, but what I say if I can't say it everywhere I don't say it. At least that is what I try to type by.

    There's a way to do it but I haven't figured it out yet..
    Bob Blaylock knows cuz he did it to me..

    You can add states like Texas to your blog if they have close TEA-party primaries..
    I like John Cornyn's ad last time, to "Big Bad John" music..
    I'd love to see one of the Castro brothers take out that ****in Stockman and jolt Cruz.
