    Lmao, Cubans aren't the brainwashed savages you make them out to be. Quit being so ethnocentric and travel a little bit. Maybe go to Cuba and meet some Cubans? Get a feel for the culture? I've been to Habana a few times. They probably criticize Castro far more than US politicians do.

    I mean substantive info, Kobie-not what you read in New Yorker.
    The Cuban-American community of MIAMI-DADE, for Christ's sake, has said enough is enough.

    He's making it up Kobie. He just made up a story about dating a Cuban girl, and hearing about her parents criticizing the government, and a post before that, he claimed that Cubans would be told what to think. He doesn't see the contradiction in those statements. Does he believe her parents started criticizing and disbelieving the government after they left? Well, if the story is true, then one has to agree that they left because they refused to believe what the government was telling them to believe. With 2-3 million Cubans who have left the country, does he believe the majority of people in Cuba will believe what they're told? He just made up a story which contradicts his earlier statements and he's too concerned with attacking Obama to actually see how his story contradicts his own statements.

    Oh, I'm well aware that pretty much everything US Conservative says is a lie. I'm used to that. I just didn't want to call him on his rhetorical paradox until he had really backed himself into a corner.

    Yeah, he's been caught making quite a few things up but this has to be the silliest. The only Cuban he has ever seen is Desi Arnaz.

    I know the culture to an extent. Never been there. But they dont have freedom of speech nor freedom of the press-the commie dictator decides what that is.

    Neither does Saudi Arabia, and I don't see you clamoring to disassociate the U.S. with THOSE assholes.
