    Upon leaving my Cuban American community, I encountered individuals with no functional understanding of Cuba and the many millions debilitated by the regime.As a first-generation Cuban American from Miami, Florida, my upbringing, daily discourse, and education have been overwhelmingly influenced by the Cuban struggle. To me, it’s always seemed straightforward: Cuba’s communist system has inflicted human and civil rights violations, family separations, and sexual, religious, and ideological persecution of minorities since 1959. Yet upon leaving my Cuban American community, I encountered individuals with no functional understanding of Cuba and the dire context that defined the lives of myself and the...

    SNIPS Two months ago, the Obama administration acted to relax a trade embargo imposed on the island nation in 1962. A senior State Department official described the potential for damage as great and the timing unfortunate, noting that it could affect congressional support for the administration's recent attempts to engage Cuba. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the continuing investigation. Cuba is notorious for not paying its agents, said a former intelligence official speaking anonymously because of the highly sensitive matter. Indeed, court documents indicate the couple received little money for their efforts, but instead professed a...

    The DUmmies are really pissed off at Joe Biden. Why? Because he stated that the U.S. government will NOT end the Cuban embargo as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD, "Biden says U.S. does not plan to lift Cuba embargo." Some of the DUmmies are even saying that is not really what Biden means and you have to microanalyze the word he used, "No." Of course, what the DUmmies need to realize is that all of the Obama administration promises have an expiration date. In the meantime the DUmmies remain angry as you can see so let us...

  • We should end the Cuban embargo (vanity)

    I have long felt that the embargo against Cuba should end. I think the arguments against ending the embargo have become slogans over the years. The only reason we still have the embargo is that Cuban-Americans in Florida want it. And they vote. And politicians from both parties want that vote. We don't have embargoes against Russia or China. But then Russian-Americans and Chinese-Americans don't have similar sway with the politicians the way Cuban-Americans do. I think we should allow our business people access to Cuba.

    CANNES, France (Reuters) - Director Michael Moore says the U.S. health care system is driven by greed in his new documentary "SiCKO", and asks of Americans in general, "Where is our soul?" He also said he could go to jail for taking a group of volunteers suffering ill health after helping in the September 11, 2001 rescue efforts on an unauthorized trip to Cuba, where they received exemplary treatment at virtually no cost. The controversial film maker is back in Cannes, where he won the film festival's highest honor in 2004 with his anti-Bush polemic "Fahrenheit 9/11". In "SiCKO" he...

    Liberals who are gunning for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay might have an ally in Havana: Fidel Castro. The Texas Republican was behind a successful campaign to defeat legislation that would ease the United States' hard-line policies toward Cuba. The Bush administration believes that any relaxation of the Cuba policy would prop up Castro's communist regime. And DeLay recently worked to crush three appropriations amendments related to Cuba that passed the House last year, the publication The Hill reveals. The first bill, sponsored by Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., would have made it easier for U.S. residents to send gifts to...

    WASHINGTON - Some companies that sell food and agricultural products to Cuba are reporting that payments are not being credited to their bank accounts in the United States, according to a representative of a group that tracks business between the two countries. John Kavulich, president of the U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council Inc., said Tuesday that fewer than half a dozen companies have contacted his organization recently about such problems. He said banks have confirmed receipt of payments from Cuba but have not credited the accounts of exporters on instructions from the U.S. government. A spokeswoman for the Treasury Department...
