    Beyonce and Jay-Z's Trip to Cuba

    So obama's treasury dept. gave the OK for this star couple to go to Cuba on the grounds that it encouraged "meaningful contact" with the Cuban people. I know the Rodman trip to NK has worked out great so I'm sure this will too. What I am wondering though is did this little Cuban vacation help the US and democracy or did it help Cuba and communism-fascism.

    "The mystery of whether Beyonce and Jay-Z's wedding anniversary trip to Cuba was legal has been solved. The Treasury Department says the power couple's trip to Cuba was authorized under a licensed program that encourages "meaningful contacts" with the Cuban people.The acknowledgment was made in Treasury Department letters sent Tuesday to Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Republican Florida lawmakers who had asked the department if the trip had violated the embargo against Cuba and was licensed. A copy of the letter to Diaz-Balart was obtained by ABC News, Rep. Ros-Lehtinen's office released a copy of the letter sent to her."

    Cuba is gradually liberalising. This can only hasten the process, however slightly.

    What a subtle way Obama has of toppling the Cuban government.

    Export some crappy music in hopes the people will become so agitated they overthrow the regime.
