    As fun as THIS ass-kicking has been, it's time for me to head to bed.
    She's been a candidate for years, is this your first day?

If you say yes, then it contradicts the implications that come with Fidel telling Cubans what they're told. If no, then it effectively means that freedom of any sort was not their reason for leaving. Either way, your argument that this gives Castro ammo has crumbled.

    Lmao, that was what? 20-30-40 years ago? Leaving the country was still pretty much illegal. C'man, if Cubans will be told what to believe, they would have stayed in the country. That's the official doctrine down there. Cubans who leave the country are labeled as defectors. So if they're told what to think, why didn't this chick's parents stay in the country like Cubans are told to do?

    Lmao, people know what life is without communism because they watch a ****load of American movies on national television, today. They know what the internet, iPads, and pizza deliveries are. They know what credit cards and Christmas are like. Holy Christ, it's almost like you believe Cubans are living in the early 20th century or something. Your ignorance on this topic is really showing.

    I'm shocked.

    You've never flown through the Sierra Maestra and landed your Cessna on top of Pico Real del Turquino to perform life saving techniques on someone desperately in need?

    You better put that one on your to do list
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Factually correct, but pretty misleading.

    The AP version of the story is here (it's Newsday's site):

    Lots to say in historic Obama-Castro phone call - Newsday
    Yeah, I expected something outlandish and that is why I click on it to check it out. Then it was ho hum, give me a bottle of rum.
    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.
