Cuba would probably be a good place to live, if your own dumb *** country would get rid of your dumb *** blockade and let them run their country like everybody else.
But a fully functioning Communist nation next door to you guys is a threat I suppose, so you keep it up and running and keep them isolated as best you can so they have no other choice but to cut here and there, reduce their support in certain programs for their public, etc.
If the US didn't have their stupid blockade on Cuba, you'd all probably be singing a different tune..... that includes Trex. Sure he blames Cuba and their government for the BS he had to go through, but if you look at the broader spectrum of the whole situation, the US had a lot to do with these situations.
I have a few Cuban friends here where I live, and I have a Cuban married into my family, and I have talked to them all about their lives there, and the people in Cuba are some of the most friendly, generous and caring people I have met..... my distant cousin from there who married into the family has got to be the most cheerful, happy and generous person I have ever met in my entire life.
Some love their coutnry, while others didn't, which is why they moved to Canada..... this isn't anything special or new, because there are differences in every country, there are always going to be those who love their home country, and those who hate their country.
Trex is the type who hates it...... But sorry to say, I'm not going to base all my opinions of Cuba on just one person.
Trex doesn't like Cuba and it's government.... good..... move on.
Dark Beaver doesn't have to debate any of this, as for one thing, it has not a damn thing to do with the topic in question..... secondly, debating with one person and their own perspective can only go so far.
Trex hates Cuba's government for certain reasons? Fine..... yet I know several others who love their country..... what does that tell you?
Nothing.... so move on.
Well it is apparent that you want nothing to do with these facts. But it is great that you admitted that what he is saying is indeed factual.
By your childish posts it is also apparent that you DO NOT DARE debate him on this so called "jumbo bag of nothing". You keep coming after me which is fine as that is all you can do.
Trex has humbled you and you know it. Your communist/socialist diatribe ran into a truck that just ran you over and all you can do is dribble out homoerotic innuendos which I am sure does not surprise anyone coming from you.
What I am seeing in you is the equivalent of a football player that just got his helmet knocked from his head. That dull stare that says...
"Where am I? What just happened?"
I wonder what Cuba's choice would have been had she not been treated as a conquest following the Spanish-American war.
Calm down, you're hyperventilating, hide that erection will you, Trex isn't here Smack he's busy working in Europe. Why don't you get your lips off his horn and I'm sure he'll be more than happy to blow it himself if he has the time to spare from world building.
Wow... you really like this "same sex" talk. Your posts are filled with them. Is there something you aren't telling us DB?
Since he is not here I am sure you can get a post ready for him disputing the facts and reality of life in Cuba since you know all about and he, being from Cuba knows nothing about Cuba at all.
So instead of fantasizing about watching two men together... debate him.
Hmmm... I could have sworn we fought the Spanish in Cuba and wrested Cuba from the Spanish.
It is an embargo...not a blockade. Cuba can trade with anyone they wish...we just don't want to trade with them. It is the course that they have chosen. It was all fun until the Soviets stopped sending rubles. Now they want the embargo lifted under their terms.
Besides... they have Canada to trade with... what more can they want?
Well then you must be an expert then!
But seriously... I was in the Marines with Cubans and visit my Marine buddy who is now a lawyer in Miami. I agree, they are wonderful people. The Cubans here in the US are also the reason why the embargo will stand. They do not like the Cuban govt.
It seems a lot of them hate it as they try to make the escape to the US on anything that will float. Sounds like a wonderful place.
You wouldn't change your mind if you had a whole stadium full of Cubans telling you how awful it is.
Sorry... too much fun. I shall stay.
It didn't and the OP did not even bring up Cuba. He was saying how Canada was the least corrupt, giving you folks a pat on the back. DB was the one that brought up Cuba and was schooled pretty well.
I think it is cute that you are sticking up for DB though. I guess he needs help on this.
But yet they are living in Canada. What does that tell you?
Oooooo...getting testy aren't we?
What's the matter beave...did your feelings get hurt? Your visions of a Cuban Utopia shattered by one who has actually experienced it and lived there as opposed to your readings from globalresearch? Cuba doesn't look as rosy as it once did now did it.
You can call me any thing you want and I will STILL be laughing over this.
You got a Cuban Pressed Sandwich rammed down your throat, a Cuban Banana Cream Pie smashed in your face, finished off with one of Fidel's favorite Cuban cigars shoved in your mouth.
Praxius, it's not so good there in Cuba. That's all Trax was trying to say. I don't think he was very far off the mark. You're overreacting.
