    Why would anyone capitulate over your insane comments regarding your self hyped knowledge of Cuba?

    Self hyped? Lmao. You're kidding yourself. I just mopped the floor with you with your made up story about your unique salsa dancing, spanish speaking, Cuban friend. Now I'm doing it again with your blind faith in Rubio's comment.

    Rubio knows better than you, im sure the state dept will be calling you up asap for all your insight.
    Does he? Maybe you can then tell us how he figures Cuba makes 1.8 billion in tourism, then spends on average 100 million in defence but that somehow constitutes 90% of its tourism income? Does Rubio also know some sort of mathematical equation where 100 million on defence spending equals 90% of 1.8 billion? How do I come up with that figure? That's about as much as the world knows on Cuba's military spending.

    So c'man US Con, for once in your life, try and make the effort: How does Rubio know that Cuba spends 90% of its tourism income on its military, when Cuba doesn't release the numbers?

As I said, he's not a credible source on this anymore than you're a credible source because you know that Cubans like beans.
    Im betting Rubio has better access to the data than you do in your basement. And once again its black beans.

    What data? Cuba doesn't released anything on the matter and Rubio isn't in any committee that would have access to any intel on the matter. Lmao, you're saying that Rubio has access to data that is not available to anyone outside of 6 people in Cuba and the people who have access to such info in our government would have to be part of an intelligence committee (which he isn't).

    Here, I'll give you a clue and let you redeem yourself. There are only 6 known people in Cuba who know exactly how much the country spends on its military. Fidel and Raul Castro are #1 and #2, if you can find quotes on Rubio even mentioning who the other 4 are, I'll concede that both you and Rubio know more about this topic than I do. You down to do the research?

    than you do in your basement And once again its black beans.

    Cuban communist leader lectures Obama for 30 minutes.

    Barack Obama apologized to Cuban president Raul Castro during their phone conversation after the American commander in chief's opening remarks. Speaking to reporters at his final White House press briefing of 2014 Friday afternoon, Obama gave more details about his phone call with the communist leader of Cuba earlier this week before the announcement of a change in U.S. policy on the Caribbean island nation.



    Obama began the phone call with Castro with what he described as 15 minutes of opening comments. It was the first conversation between the heads of state in both countries since 1961. "I apologized for taking such a long time," Obama said. Castro responded by reminding Obama that the American president was still young enough to beat Castro's brother, former Cuban president and revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, who once gave a 7-hour-long speech.

    Lmao, you have been destroyed throughout the entire thread and you think my knowledge is self hype? How does Marco Rubio have access to intel on Cuba's military without being on any intelligence committee? It's funny because you keep saying he knows more than I do, but you can't really show how or why. I'm starting to believe that your opinion on Cubans being told what to think is a projection of your own political stances. You need a GOP bottom feeder like Rubio to tell you what to think so you think other people do too.
