Here’s to 50 more for a blockaded Cuba

“If the United States does not continue to stand for the ideals of freedom and human rights and against the many guises of tyranny and oppression, who will?”  — United States Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, during his fatwa against Cuba, declaring that the U.S. should not ease sanctions

Now there’s a mouthful, considering the record of King George and the current administration’s eight long years. I could elaborate, but since the record stands for itself, why bother?

Will someone please wash that man’s mouth out with soap?

¡Viva la revolución!

Why does America continue it’s childish feud with an absolutely meaningless cork bobbing in the Gulf? Can’t get your way in your own hemisphere? Need to blame someone for your intransigence? Or, has it something to do with spoiled brats and voters in Cubida — err, Floriduh?

  1. I was thinking of venturing towards Cuba this winter, but I’ve since gone back to work so it’s out of the question. Given the state of our economies, I suspect a package tour there would be especially cheap now.

    I’m in agreement with you on the sanctions. They’ve long outlived their usefulness.

  2. Honestly, I cannot for the life of me figure out why we still have sanctions against Cuba – it certainly isn’t accomplishing anything of merit and has long since outlived it’s usefulness.

    That, and I’m pissed that I can’t go to Havana.
