President Obama steps out and breaks with the past by opening a door long closed with Cuba. It's about time. While the move is lost on Senator Rubio, maybe the new Republican majorities in the House and Senate will take the necessary steps to end the embargo.

We should have bought that place back in 1959 just before Batista was ousted. That place could have been the Las Vegas of the Caribbean, complete with Trump Towers, Wynn, the Hard Rock Hotel, and an under water tram from the Keys to Havana.
We blew it a long time ago.
At least we will now get access to a whole shit load of some classic American cars, restorers are going to have a field day down there.

The White House OPENLY claims the Cuba prisoner swap was not a prisoner swap, that it was merely two random prisoner releases that just happened to occur on the same day, or that when we freed some Cuban spies out of the goodness of our hearts Castro decided to free Gross out of the goodness of HIS heart, or that some alignment of the planets somehow unlocked all the relevant cell doors on the same day.

And they actually expect you lefties to BELIEVE that.

I presume you all know that this is a BAD thing, in many ways, including rewarding human rights abuse, encouraging more of the same, and funneling more money into the regime with virtually no benefit to the citizens. (You DO understand the concept of Communism ... right?)

And it turns out that the Pope helped with the negotiations. He's driving these fascist Catholics crazy! He actually read most of Jesus' teachings. No to torture, yes to talking to Cuba.

Just think -- you can have your very own '55 Chevy.

With pom-poms.

It is totally untapped. Somewhat agree N.W. Got to be some good windsurfing and scuba there. Lots of real estate. Best to make friends they are no threat what so ever. We do trade with China? Remember Ricky from I love Lucy? Iso I need some music! More cowbell!

Mikey, the best part of your posts is the anger and fury that seeps through. I can just imagine you sitting there, steaming, seething, gnashing, frothing in your hatred of all things Obama.

I smile at your blood pressure of 400-over-200.

Maybe you can get more disability payments for that. Very Happy
