Two sides indeed. Often some of the most despicable, notorious and evil people throughout history were often beloved by many.

What does that really tell you?

People choose sides and anyone on the other side be damned.

Well here in Australia we've ended up with an ex Goldman Sachs manager who is as weak as piss 'Obama light' if you will, we never voted for him the decent leader we did vote for was usurped by the media which created the leadership challenge myth till it became a self fulfilling prophecy.Yes weak vacillating leaders are the norm now.

I don't think so but Kim Jong-il would be.

Even Hitler is on that list so it is obvious that it isn't a group of nice guys.

That's a sign of a good leader, your country is so good that people risk their live crossing the sea to leave.

Well no all people that ran from Cuba did it because they were persecuted, many just wanted the free ride into US social benefits.

We get illegals from all the Islands of the Caribbean, Haiti, Santo Domingo, Jamaica, Cuba, and no all of them are dictatorships neither is because the people are persecuted.

Many just wants US benefits.

The children of Batistas thugs are the world's most reliable source of information on Cuba.

To seat at home while collecting welfare pay by those that actually work for a living.



Now the people that comes from Haiti, Santo Domingo and Jamaica comes to use the universal health care that has been established in the Island.

Still in Puertorrico if you have a child born in the Island while been an illegal is born America citizen, just like if you were in the main land.

Crossing the sea? It's 60 miles from Cuba to Haiti and then another 75 mile hop from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico.

One thing I have noticed is that some, not even half but more than a few, say that they should have stayed at home. That is true of people from other countries as well.

The way you say 60 miles makes me think you have ever been in the sea...

I work with a Mexican guy who goes to Cuba once a year due to his activities with a church. He has told me everything I need to know about Cuba.
In Cuba, there are no car parts because every car part you have to have a tax stamp to purchase the car part. Usually the tax stamp cost more than the part.
In Cuba, if you choose to grow a vegetable garden, and someone finds out, someone from the government will come and take the vegetables.
In Cuba, healthcare is free. But it is also non-existent unless you are a CP member or a tourist.
In Cuba, the only common people that are wealthy, are drug dealers, prostitutes, pimps, and sometime taxi cab drivers. And then only those that are allowed to work in "tourist zones".
In Cuba, you have to go to the grocery store every day. Because if you do not, when they run out of food, you will go hungry for that night.

etc, etc...

Anyway, this is the world that our media and universities are selling to our young people. A world of "fairness".
